December 13th 2012 New Moon in Sagittarius
A new moon occurs at 3:42AM ET at 21 degrees 45 minutes of Sagittarius. In Sagittarius, we want to explore other cultures, beliefs, and ways of living. We're not as closed to people other other faiths and lifestyles, curious about how it works. This is a good moon for travel, especially internationally. We want to be free of fences and be able to roam as freely as we can. Something with the law could come up now, or see news regarding learning institutions, especially colleges/universities. Overall, we feel more optimistic as societies/countries, and don't want to dwell on the negative. There's too much good out there, and we're capable of so much when we think positively. If you're a Sagittarius Sun, Moon, or late Sagittarius rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
December 28th 2012 Full Moon in Cancer
A full moon occurs at 5:21AM ET at 7 degrees 5 minutes of Cancer. In Cancer, we're in touch with our emotions at a deep level. Cancer is the sign of the moon, and a full moon is at home here, so it's not as uncomfortable as other signs. We're deeply in tune with our spiritual foundations, our core. Cancer rules the home and family, and we could see things come up there, endings of various sorts, culminations, things coming to fruition. This full moon is opposite transit (moving) Pluto in Capricorn, so we could see the darker side of people. There may be fighting over power/control, and struggling against oppressors. With Pluto in Capricorn and the full moon in Cancer, this would likely be against our elders, governments, and authority figures. If you're a Cancer Sun, Moon, or rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
