This new moon occurs on December 16 at 7:02 a.m. (EST) at 25 degrees of Sagittarius.
New moons signify new beginnings and the start of a new cycle. Since this new moon is in Sagittarius, the qualities of idealism, optimism, and intelligence will be highlighted. 9th house themes of education and high learning are highlighted as well. In addition, the Sun and Moon are conjunct Venus, so love and relationships will also be in focus.
This is a time of optimism and dreams; the moon seeks knowledge. This thirst for knowledge is heightened by the fact that this Sagittarian New Moon sextiles the Triple Conjunction and squares Uranus.
