previous new moon

This new moon is Wednesday, December 25 at 11:15 PM CDT

The new moon occurs on Wed., Dec. 25- 11:15 PM Central Time in the sign of Capricorn.

December is also solar eclipse which completely changes the energy of the new moon. As you know, the new moon is a great time for planting seeds (by making our wishes) to bring fresh energy into our lives. But because of the solar eclipse on December 25, we need to work with this new moon in a little different way.

Some astrologers think that eclipses are about fate. So because the solar eclipse coincides with the new moon, the advice is simply to let yourself be open to whatever the new moon is bringing for you. Because Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and the solar eclipse are all happening at the same time as this month’s new moon, not to mention the end of the decade, the energy of the season and the new moon is definitely magnified.

There is also a heavy Capricorn influence because the new moon takes place in Capricorn. This is also the second Capricorn new moon of the year. The solar eclipse is also in the earth sign of Capricorn. This means that the influence of Capricorn will be felt throughout the coming 12 months.

Remember to be open to whatever the energies the new moon and solar eclipse combination is bringing for you.

Capricorn is an ambitious energy with grand ideals and full of potential. However, it is important to watch out for feelings of self importance.

This new moon is Tuesday, November 26 at 9:07 AM CDT

The new moon occurs on Tues., Nov. 26- 9:07 AM Central Time in the sign of Sagittarius.

It’s no surprise that this month’s wish themes include observing religious practices, spirituality, prayer and meditation.

Other themes for this month include holding positive expectations, grand gestures, doing things spontaneously, and maintaining an expectation that luck and opportunity will find you.

What did surprise me is that this month’s themes also include fairness, judgment, maintaining morality and integrity, delving into complex matters, solving problems.

For those of us who are following the nation’s politics, these particular qualities have a special significance. And no matter where we stand on the political spectrum, these are the qualities that we want to maintain for ourselves so that we can all come together in fairness and find a solution that works for everyone.

Just a brief word about the next new moon. It occurs on December 26, the day after Christmas. There is also a solar eclipse on this day as well. This new moon is particularly powerful because we will be entering a new decade.

This new moon is Sunday, October 27 at 10:40 PM CDT

The new moon occurs on Sun., Oct. 27- 10:40 PM Central Time in the sign of Scorpio.

This month is Scorpio, but not just regular Scorpio, its intense Scorpio. And it’s the dark side of Scorpio leading up to the new moon release. Once the new moon emerges the energy will be on your side to support your wishes in a big way.

Don’t let this energy get the best of you. Avoid over reacting, avoid tit for tat, and angry outbursts. You might even notice inner conflict within yourself. Just notice all this. Acknowledge it when it comes up and watch it go by. Remind yourself that it is all just stories in your head and it will all come to pass much faster and easier when you allow yourself to stay out of it.

This month is a good time to make wishes around connecting with others in deeper ways, character development, avoiding risks, and to take better care of yourself by not pushing the limits.
