December 2nd 2013 New Moon in Sagittarius
A new moon occurs at 7:22PM ET at 10 degrees 59 minutes of Sagittarius. In Sagittarius, we're feeling good. There's so much out there for us to experience, and we want to do it all with a smile. We laugh, we don't take much seriously. We go on adventures, or at least talk about the big adventures we want to take. We want more freedom, and the less we have, the more we try to break free. Sagittarius rules travel, so something positive could come up with that. A lot of people will make their holiday travel plans. We could see more people flying this year, or traveling far, especially for those who get an early start. Sagittarius rules international affairs, so we could see a positive development in dealings between world leaders. Mostly, we're optimistic about life, and take things in stride. We can see the big picture, which keeps us from being too emotional, though the overlooked details could bite us later. If you're a Sagittarius Sun, Moon, or mid-Sagittarius rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
December 17th 2013 Full Moon in Gemini
A full moon occurs at 4:28AM ET at 25 degrees 36 minutes of Gemini. In Gemini, we're sensitive to what other people say. The words we speak are full of emotion, and even if we're not consciously aware, we can sense it subconsciously/intuitively. This can be a good thing in that we have an easier time communicating our emotions with others and sharing our feelings, but it can also be a bad thing in that we have a hard time separating logic and reason from emotion. We could see something come up with technology, in our communities, with siblings or neighbors, or with young people. We can also see deals falling through, and an over-emphasis of the details, getting lost in them and not seeing the big picture. If you're a Gemini Sun, Moon, or late Gemini rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
