December 13, 2012, is the New Moon in Sagittarius, at 4:42 AM/EST. Sagittarius is a fire sign, so expect some charged and heightened energy. Something new and exciting is just around the corner, and this lunar phase says that actions are more powerful than words for now. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself feeling motivated to throw caution to the wind, and wanting to jump ahead with both feet on a new project. Yes, there is plenty of strong and energetic energy to go around, but before running aimlessly into new ventures it is prudent to clarify your intention, and carefully consider what is laid before you. By all means forge ahead, but be smart rather than reckless.
The sign of Sagittarius is one of optimism, and expansiveness. It is also a curious sign. Sagittarius is symbolic of the higher self, and the higher mind. The energies of this New Moon will be around through the end of December, so take the opportunity to put these plentiful energies to work. Aim to your higher self, and to higher goals. Open your consciousness and listen to your voice within. New Moons are about starting new goals and setting fresh intent into motion. This is an optimum time to aim high, and put some strong goals into motion.
Sagittarian Mercury is Square Piscean Neptune, and at the same time Mercury is Trine Uranus in Aries. These aspects speak to the afore mentioned need to be smart rather than reckless. There is potential for a seemingly brilliant idea to falter, as it is heavily dependent on as yet unformed potential. Shelve it for a while, and revisit it when things have gelled more.
Uranus in Aries is preparing to station direct a few hours after the New Moon, so for the moment it is at a standstill. It is ready to forge ahead once the time is ripe, but with the influences of Mercury and Neptune mucking things up, there is potential for unrealistic expectations. Again, really consider things, and do your best to see the forest for the trees.

Jupiter in Gemini forms the apex of a Yod, while Saturn in Scorpio Sextile Pluto in Capricorn forms the base. This time of year is an expensive one for all of us. When setting up budgets, be doubly sure that your income and spending are balanced. Capricorn and Scorpio will help keep you on track.
Although the aspect is diminishing, Venus in Scorpio is Sextile Mars in Capricorn. You could feel a surge of passion in your existing relationship or with someone new. Whatever your intentions are be sure to make them as clear as possible.
During this New Moon in Sagittarius simplicity is the name of the game. On the subjects of romance or new business ventures keep things as simple as possible, and focus on the path to the end goal. As always, honesty is the best policy. Energy is high and there is plenty to go around. Just don’t let it make you go off half-cocked. Keep things in perspective. Remember, by staying smart rather than reckless, great things are just around the corner.
