The New Moon in Sagittarius occurs today, Monday, December 2, at 7:22 pm EST (12:22 am, Tuesday, December 3, GMT), at 11 degrees. New moons signify a new cycle, new beginnings, and rebirth.

This New Moon, along with the Sun (also in Sagittarius) will highlight the fiery Sagittarius qualities of optimism and adventure, as well as ninth house themes of knowledge and travel. This New Moon period is the perfect time to examine your self and your life: do you long to travel, especially internationally? Perhaps you will find yourself re-examining a religion you’ve left behind, or discover a new one. Maybe it’s learning that foreign language that you always wanted. Now is the time to initiate changes, and enjoy the optimism and sense of adventure you find in doing so.
