December 2nd brings a New Moon in expansive Sagittarius, the sign of exploration and optimism. As is the case with all explorations, these beginnings will be spiced with unknown factors. This Moon’s harmonious trine to Uranus retrograde (liberation) in Aries supports taking a risk, but the doubtful square to Chiron (Wounded Healer) in Pisces indicates that new experiences will trigger insecurities. Once Mercury (communication and information) moves into Sagittarius on December 4th, everyone will have more information, ideas and contacts to assist in this new chapter. Mars (action and initiative) enters harmonious Libra on December 7th. This will be an unusually long transit (until July 25, 2014 ) due to Mars going retrograde in March, 2014. We’ll all have extensive opportunities to explore assertive action (Mars) in the context of what’s socially acceptable (Libra).
This New Moon lights up your opportunities sector. Long distance travel, education, legal matters, publishing or any developments that are foreign to your usual way of doing things are areas to watch. The trine to Uranus retrograde (in your sign) suggests this is your moment to step out onto an exciting new path, even as the square to Chiron (in your hidden sector) triggers hard- to- pin- down anxieties. Mercury’s move into your opportunities sector should provide assistance/reassurance, as it gives you more information to work with. Meanwhile, Mars (your ruler) moves into your relationship sector and spices things up with an existing partner, or accelerates a promising new romance. Be aware that sudden, short lived arguments are also a feature of this transit.
The New Moon in your sector of shared resources indicates a push for more in the areas of joint finances or intimacy. The trine to Uranus (in your sector of secrets) could reveal surprising expectations, or it may reveal a hidden issue (more money is owed than anticipated, assistance comes from an unexpected source, or emotional/physical intimacy crosses into uncharted territory). The square to Chiron (in your social sector) suggests that public image, reputation or opinions may have a great impact on private matters. Mercury’s moves into your shared resources sector gets the conversation flowing, the deals rolling, or gives you more food for thought regarding how much you want to spend/owe/invest (financially or emotionally). Mars’ move into your sector of daily routine kicks off a busy time; the acceleration of work, co-worker relationships, small tasks and obligations can leave you flustered. Fortunately, this is an energizing transit, so you’ll be proactive, even as you struggle to maintain a sociable balance with those who demand your assistance.
The New Moon in your partnership sector can signal a new, expansive stage in a relationship, or an optimistic new start if you are recently single. The trine to Uranus (in your social sector) suggests now is the time to go public or broaden your ideas of where your relationship can go in the future. If you are single, partnership opportunities lie “out there,” with friends/groups; step out and see who comes your way. The square to Chiron (in your sector of career and professional goals) is a caution to temper your expectations against issues of reputation, status or ambition. Conflicting future goals (between you and your partner) may be an issue. As Mercury (your ruler) enters your partnership sector, you’ll get a better handle on things as relationship communication is stimulated. Mars in your sector of self-expression promises moments of fun, flirtation and creative success, as you make an active grab for attention (this is an especially hot transit for single Geminis). Single or attached, you’ll be more assertive about showing the world what you have to offer.
The New Moon in your sector of daily routine promises to liven up your work environment, health/exercise routine or overall energy level. The trine to Uranus retrograde (in your career sector) hooks promising new developments in your daily life into the bigger picture; watch for a new job offer, recognition from management or empowerment for your physical/mental well being. The square to Chiron (in your opportunities sector) may throw up some blocks (in the short term) about how far you can run with this new development, but don’t let it throw you off track. Mercury’s move into your daily routine sector will give you more ammunition in the form of solutions, practical information or medical diagnoses. As Mars enters your domestic sector, prepare for things to get stirred up at home; watch for small repairs, brief family arguments, minor accidents or sudden changes/announcements that throw you off balance. Remember that harmony at all costs is impossible. Aim for flexibility and understanding, instead.
The New Moon lights up your sector of self-expression, bringing a new romance, the start of a creative project, opportunities to promote yourself or a birth/pregnancy. The trine to Uranus (in your opportunities sector) extends the impact or gives you a wider audience, while suggesting that these new developments may be unexpected. The square to Chiron (in your sector of shared resources) is a caution about overextending yourself, financially or emotionally. As Mercury moves into your sector of self-expression, watch for feedback, details or more chances to flaunt what you’ve got through words/ideas. Mars’ move into your communication sector adds even more fuel to what you say, but you also may also attract challenges/arguments; balance your communication with an awareness of how it is received by others. All of these influences are excellent for performance or promotion.
The New Moon in your domestic sector can signal a relocation, major renovation, expansion of your existing family or an increase in home business. This new, domestic chapter will be supported by the trine from Uranus (in your sector of shared resources) indicating that shared finances (or financial assistance) will work in your favour, and/or intimacy between you and your partner will steadily grow. Moving beyond your habitual domestic routine/relationships is encouraged. But the square to Chiron (in your relationship sector) indicates that there will be a couple of sticking points (with your partner) related to sacrifice, unacknowledged contributions or hanging onto old, painful issues. Use this new beginning to move past the old hurts. Once Mercury (your ruler) enters your domestic sector, you’ll feel more in control as discussions and new ideas give you lots to chew on. Mars’ entrance into your sector of personal resources can bring in more money, but also more expenses. Watch your spending carefully. You may also find yourself pushing more aggressively to get your needs met, and some of this may be rooted in your awareness of what someone else has. Be open about what you feel is lacking, rather than indulging in passive aggressive competition.
The New Moon in your communication sector can signal a critical discussion, idea or piece of information that opens your eyes to what else is out there. The trine to Uranus (in your relationship sector) suggests your partner may be strongly involved, and the square to Chiron (in your sector of daily routine) suggests that conversations/ideas may trigger some sore feelings around unappreciated work or duties. What you hear/learn may also involve a health issue. As Mercury enters your communication sector, expect the discussion to continue, or the information to keep coming in. This will be a busy time, full of emails, calls and brief meetings. Fortunately, you have Mars moving into your sign for an extended period, giving you more energy, ambition, initiative and assertiveness. It’s time to put yourself first.
The New Moon in your sector of personal resources can herald a pay increase, financial reward or increased awareness of what you need to feel secure. The trine to Uranus in your sector of daily routine suggests that innovative approaches on the job, or changes that you’ve made to your immediate environment/health/exercise routine will support you. The square to Chiron (in your sector of self-expression) can throw up some doubts about whether you deserve what you’re asking for. Once Mercury enters your sector of personal resources, you’ll have more fuel (in the guise of information, ideas and convincing words) to prove that you do indeed deserve every bit of the security and satisfaction you’re aiming for. As Mars enters your sector of secrets, something in its early stages will be in the works. It’s way too early to know the outcome, and Mars’ extended stay here suggests that you’ll have to proceed slowly and use your instincts. Don’t expect quick results.
The New Moon in your sign forms an inspirational trine with Uranus in your sector of self expression; a creative project, new romance or exciting personal goal may be launched. This will be different from what you’ve attempted/experienced in the past, so there will be a few rough spots to work through. The square to Chiron in your domestic sector is a caution to not let past/family issues throw you off course. Any difficulties you are experiencing should be viewed in the present tense (even if they feel familiar). The outcome can be different this time. As Mercury enters your sign, you’ll gain traction with information, helpful contacts or new ideas on how to make this work. Mars in your social sector is helpful if you want to promote your work to a wider audience; you’ll be motivated to take public action. The caution with this influence is to balance your ambitions with your public presence, because tension with groups/friends/acquaintances is also likely.
The New Moon in your hidden sector suggests the seed of a private idea/development, and the trine to Uranus (in your domestic sector) indicates that ongoing changes at home will be involved. Forward movement, on a personal and family level, is where you’re at these days, but the square to Chiron (in your communication sector) suggests that this may bring up painful ideas or information. This could unfold as a secret revealed, or discovery of hidden information. As Mercury enters your sector of secrets, you’ll learn more, although it’s still too early to go public with everything. Bide your time and allow developments to unfold at their own pace. Mars’ entry into your career sector can boost your ambition for success while lowering your patience. Navigate matters of status and reputation carefully; socially acceptable ambition will get you further than charging ahead and lowering the hammer. Always be aware that others are watching you and taking note of your actions.
The New Moon in your social sector can open a new chapter with friends/groups/the public, and the trine to Uranus (your ruler) in your communication sector suggests that innovative ideas and clear, undiluted communication will be your assets. The square to Chiron (in your security sector) may throw up some tricky reactions based on your financial concerns or worries about getting your needs met. Alternatively, what you learn (in your new group or public situation) may trigger your insecurities. As Mercury enters your social sector, keep talking to others and let the ideas flow; people will be willing to help you out as long as you’re open about where you’re at. Mars’ move into your opportunities sector can fire you up with the desire to explore, travel, reach further or do more.
The New Moon in your career sector trines Uranus in your security sector, suggesting a new job, job lead or work project can benefit you, financially and emotionally. Exploring the unknown is your ticket to expanding your resources. But the square to Chiron in your sign can trigger some personal doubts/insecurities, which is only natural. Once Mercury enters your career sector, you’ll have discussions with management/clients, or you’ll have more ideas/options on what your next step should be. Mars’ move into your sector of shared resources activates issues around debts, taxes, loans or your partner’s finances. You could find yourself spending more/owing more. Physical/emotional intimacy can also heat up. In all cases, the emphasis will be on balancing what you have/want with someone else. You can also become more assertive about getting your share.
