HAPPY NEW MOON ! New Moon 7 December 2018

The New Moon on Friday December 7, 2018 falls at 15° Sagittarius. The New Moon December 2018 astrology is mainly influenced by the alignment of Mars and Neptune at 13° Pisces. The testing square aspect between the New Moon and Mars Neptune brings out the worst of this alignment. The December 2018 new moon has a sinister influence.

Major themes of the December 7 new moon include anger, fear, deception, confusion, immorality and perversion. At 16° Sagittarius, a fixed star in Hercules Constellation will cause irritation from women and a ruthless drive to gain power. The keys to avoiding loss and disappointment from new moon December 2018 are honesty and integrity.

The effects of the December 7 new moon will last four weeks up to the Solar Eclipse on 5 January 2019. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from December 7 to the December 22 Full Moon.

New Moon Square Mars

New Moon square Mars can lead to tests of character from your competitors or enemies. Superiors, authorities and men in general may be looking to assert their power, leading to ego conflicts. Remember you may already be irritable and impatience because of the full moon two weeks ago that was also square Mars. So you are more likely to react to any provocation or threats with aggression, nastiness or revenge.

Not only people, but challenging events may force you to defend your goals or desires. A defensive position  best. New Moon December 2018 is likely to cause a buildup of anger, resentment or sexual frustration. Such potentially destructive energies need to be channeled constructively so they do not result in conflict, accidents, muscle pain or exhaustion.

Burning up this hot energy will also lower the risk of being subject to aggression and threats from other people who don’t handle this new moon energy so well. Exercise, hard work, sex or masturbation are preferred so long as you don’t push too hard and strain something. Working on a pet project you are passionate about is another good idea but is probably best done alone.

New Moon Square Neptune

New Moon square Neptune can have a weakening effect on your vitality and make you more susceptible to some psychological and health issues. Events or other people can cause confusion and disappointment, forcing you to battle against the odds. The December 7 new moon has the potential to make you feel insecure, guilty and apologetic. Seeing only the best in people increases the chance of becoming disillusioned or worse.

To counter the deceptive influence of this new moon you must be above-board in all of your dealings. This is not the best time for high stress competitive things like business dealings or negotiations. Predators will easily hone in on your soft side and you could be at greater risk of being taken advantage of.

Hypochondria is another issue you may have to deal with. Problems might be difficult to diagnose or there may be a misdiagnosis. You will also be more sensitive to drugs and alcohol, especially if you already have mental health issues such as paranoia or depression. Personal relationships may be subject to dishonesty and deception. Secrets will be harder to keep and harder to uncover.

New Moon Summary

Mars in almost exact conjunction to Neptune is the main influence on the December 7 new moon. It is a sinister influence because it is square the new moon. Major themes of new moon December 2018 will be anger, fear, deception, confusion, treachery, scandal, revenge, immorality and perversion.

Fixed star Ras Algethi joins the new moon to cause irritation from women and a ruthless drive to gain power. The keys to avoiding loss, suffering and disappointment are honesty and integrity. The actions of others are likely to make you angry, mean and vengeful. The best option would be to ignore any provocation. If you must react then do so in a straight forward, direct and honest way. Don’t leave anything to the imagination.

In particular, the new moon square Mars Neptune increases the risk of being deceived by fraudsters, charlatans, cult leaders and sexual predators. Beware of charismatic people claiming to have the answers to your problems. Sexual abuse by priests is likely to make the news yet again.

However, new moon December 2018 will stimulate your creativity and imagination. So this a good moon phase for art, music, sculpture, dance and drama. Entertainment, charity work and fighting for social causes are excellent ways to use this ethereal energy safely.

The December 2018 new moon is the last new moon in the current eclipse phase which began with the July 2018 Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse. It is a good time to look back over the last five months to check how well you have progressed with your personal goals. That lunar eclipse was at 4° Aquarius. You can look back to the August 2018 solar eclipse at 18° Leo which might apply more to your professional goals.

Last month, the new moon in Scorpio asked us to plumb the depths of our feelings, which likely led us down some pretty profound paths of reflection, but kept our focus trained squarely on our inner development. Now, we’ll be well-served to adopt Sagittarius’ more outward- and forward-facing perspective instead.

When the new moon is in this expansive sign, the future doesn’t just look bright — it might as well be blinding. The sign of the Archer is famously optimistic. Even the most practical signs (Capricorn) may glance at the bright side this Friday. And, when you direct your newly hopeful gaze toward the future, as many are wont to do during the new moon, you could feel a sudden jolt of inspiration.

Maybe you’ve been mulling over a major decision or considering something that requires taking a major risk. If you give yourself enough time to reflect on Friday, you could come upon the solution you’ve been seeking. That said, the trick with Sagittarian energy is that it’s as passionate as it is impulsive — any ideas or plans that come to mind will be from your gut and not your logical side. Of course, sometimes we’re better off when we refer to what our instincts are telling us.

And, let’s not forget that the sun and Jupiter are currently hanging out in Sagittarius, too, and they’ll still be there this Friday. We’re positively swimming in this sign’s adventurous energy at the moment, so don’t be afraid to see where your inner explorer wishes to go. By the full moon on the 22nd, you could be feeling a lot more energized — and even fulfilled.

What Sag prizes above all else is wisdom—the kind that can only be gained from experience. Whether we’re traveling to distant lands, enjoying the great outdoors, or exploring the intellectual and spiritual universe, one thing’s for sure: at this December 2018 new moon, we need to be free to pursue new experiences that are meaningful to us.

But a word to the wise: Be careful not to overdo it! There’s a danger at this new moon of trying to do all the things, without a healthy or realistic sense of our own limitations. And as we “follow our bliss,” we can get overzealous and forget that “bliss” means different things to different people.

A better use of this new moon’s energy is to focus on the thing that lights your fire… and give others the freedom to blaze their own trail.
