Moon moving thorugh the signs on DrStandley.com

The Moon in Sagittarius conjunct the Sun in Sagittarius at 2:43 AM EST. Lunar aspects have an 'orb of influence' of 12 to 14 hours 'before' and 'after' their exactness.

The Moon in Sagittarius conjunct Mercury in Sagittarius at 7:43 AM EST. Lunar aspects have an 'orb of influence' of 12 to 14 hours 'before' and 'after' their exactness.

The Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces at 3:22 PM EST. Lunar aspects have an 'orb of influence' of 12 to 14 hours 'before' and 'after' their exactness.

The BIG NEWS today is the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius. A New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are conjunct in the same sign and same degree. Look at the New Moon Astro Meme and you will see that this conjunction of the Moon and the Sun are in Sagittarius at 12 degrees 22 minutes. Keep in mind a New Moon is ALWAYS about 'fresh starts' and 'new beginnings'.

I will address the 'eclipse' first. Today's eclipse covers the Antarctic continent and touches only small southernmost sections of South America, Africa, New Zealand, and Australia. All it takes is to hear about an eclipse to get the people wound up. There is so much hype over this Solar Eclipse and the Partial Lunar Eclipse that occurred two (2) weeks ago that just the other day, on December 1, 2021 I wrote the following about eclipses in the Daily Horoscope. I'll post this again below before I get to the aspects accompanying this New Moon.

I need to interject here about eclipses. I have to say, I do not put a whole lot of stock in eclipses. I know . . I know . . people Love to blame eclipses for everything. I just don't. I don't get on the bandwagon. The Partial Lunar Eclipse back on November 19, 2021 proved 'to me' once again that it is what it is, a mesmerizing experience that impacts people because of what it looks like and not what it is.

It's like Retrogrades, no planet really EVER moves backward. It's an appearance caused by a shadow, which causes us to act and react in certain ways. I see eclipses the same way. I give retrogrades WAY MORE damaging credit than eclipses. I will say that eclipses hype-up the event only because of the appearance it puts off and the reaction it gets. It's a nipple-slip and everyone freaks out! OMGosh a nipple! LOL! The Sun and the Moon NEVER REALLY disappear. This is important, so I'll say it again, "The Sun and the Moon NEVER REALLY disappear." It just looks like it and people react to that thereby making it real 'for them'. You react, it's on you.

Did you know that eclipses are normal? NORMAL. There are ALWAYS four (4) eclipses a year. Every. Single. Year. Sometimes there are more. But there are ALWAYS four (4) eclipses a year. And heck, some places on the planet we can't even see it, but man oh' man, we want to claim the eclipse did this and that. It reminds me of someone who did not witness a crime, but heard about it. So they report the same thing without having experienced or seen the crime. It's weird. Anyway, that's my thing with eclipses.

My astrologer (may God rest his Leo roaring 110 lb. soul) he put about zero energy into eclipses and received more of a kick watching others react to them. It's like the ancients when they saw the Sun or Moon disappear. It had to be a crazy event where they thought the world was coming to an end. How frightening huh? I'm just saying, do not expect me to get on the scary eclipse train anytime soon. I will only say the energy rises a level . . and that's due to the hype given. I know, I know, I will get some astrotators who will give me events in their Life around eclipses, but I urge you to look at the planetary alignments first. 6iden had a birthday the day after the eclipse. He's toast anyway with or without a 'partial' lunar eclipse.

My dear astrotators, I will always choose to blame the current planetary alignment way more than I will blame an eclipse. I still rest a lot of what is going on in the world on the shoulders of the generational planets, where we are breaking patterns and old ways of doing things. Those planets are Pluto in Capricorn, Neptune in Pisces and Uranus in Taurus. Click the Generational Horoscope link in the teal-colored-drop-down-menu above. These planets will explain what are going on in the world way more than an eclipse hovering Antartica. Unless there is somethere there we don't know about. Aye?

But hey, you get to choose with what resonates with your spirit and how you wish to study astrology. If studying eclipses is your thing, I will not be the astrologer to sit in eclipse talk. But if you want to talk about these generational planets ripping up the world, let's roll up our sleeves and dive-in.

This New Moon in Sagittarius is also part of a small Stellium, which is when 4 or more planets are in the same sign (same house) and within 10 degrees of each other. The South Node, the Sun, Mercury and the Moon are all in Sagittarius with the three (3) planets with 10 degrees of each other. This is why I am referring to it as a 'small' Stellium.

This New Moon is important because it is lucky and it is incredibly optimistic. Sagittarius rules our ambitions, goals, dreams and visions that we hold for ourselves. Sagittarius pushes us toward adventure, experiences and activities that are much different than what we know or what we are used to. When you ask a Sagittarius if they want to do something, the answer isn't "uhhhh, Hell uh-uh," . . . it's more like "OH HELL YEAH!" Sagittarius is happy, it is happy-go-lucky and it is happy-damn-hour! Keep in mind that New Moons have an 'orb of influence' of two weeks, which takes us straight up to the next Full Moon, which will be in Sagittarius's opposite sign of Gemini. What a time to get your groovey on and your groovey back before the next New Moon on January 2, 2022. It's like we get a jumpty-jump-jump on our game.

The BIGGEST PROBLEM with this New Moon in Sagittarius will be the accompanying aspect of Mercury squaring Neptune. This aspect makes it difficult to tell the difference between fact and fiction. In other words, it is difficult to make out a scene in a movie and a scene in your own Life. Mercury square Neptune on DrStandley.com

Mercury square Neptune makes it difficult for the mind to discriminate because your thoughts become confused and vague. The imagination (Neptune) gets in the way of logical and rational thinking (Mercury). Here is the first clue, if it doesn't make sense or it isn't rational, then that is when you should get a double-take or second opinion. Do not rely on your own opinion if something seems confusing, vague or it just doesn't make sense. Ask a trusted friend, confidante or family member. This aspect can leave you absentminded, where the mind really is absent, much like the 'absent minded professor'.

Now since this is a New Moon, then it still gives us a fresh start and new beginning in the area of our chart ruled by Sagittarius. So as long as you are aware, awake and prepared, you should be able to channel this energy into some very useful assignments.

This New Moon is being supported by an absolute enormous amount of energy because Mars and Pluto represent power and level of aggression. Pluto is the higher octave of Mars, so it essentially takes the energy of Mars, lights a match to it and explodes it into a higher realm of action. This energy is courageous, powerful and will powerful.

Mars sextile Pluto on DrStandley.com

Mars sextile Pluto is the energy that an individual wants in order to cause change to occur. This would not surprise me a bit if more and more people were getting their feet in the street and pumping their fists in the air. This sextile uses energy constructively while feeling a call to serve society. So there it is. If you are feeling a sudden 'calling' this aspect is probably the reason why and it is showing up within two (2) days of this New Moon.

At the same time, this sextile will use energy both unconsciously and consciously to serve themselves. This sextile is extremely and deliberately intentional about making change occur, even if it does have to dramatically tip over the apple cart. "LOOK AT ME!" says Mars sextile Pluto. Views are presented in a very vivid and forceful way, without ignoring the ideas presented by others.

There is a heightened sense of awareness regarding the subject matter at hand that is taken to a whole new level. This sextile stimulates action and gets to the bottom of the most complex issue. This aspect will enhance your ability to read people and understand their motives.

Since Mars and Pluto rule the muscular system, this is a perfect placement for working out or working on projects that require muscle power. The individual with this placement in their chart has a lot of body muscle and will likely be committed to working out. If you planned on starting a new healthy regimen, starting under this New Moon coupled with the influence of Mars sextile Pluto is the perfect time.

This New Moon conjuncts Mercury (the mind), sextiles Saturn (discipline), quincunxes Uranus (change), so there are some emotional connections here that will be heightened and addressed. Perhaps during the heat of the moment you say something completely stupid (Moon conjunct Mercury). Maybe you have the emotional wherewithal to bite your tongue and shut the hell up (Moon sextile Saturn) and maybe something occurred that caused you to do an immediate about-face (Moon quincunx Uranus).

All about Aries on DrStandley.com

Now for all Aries on the planet this pertains to your 9th house of the higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, legalities, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations, international commerce, dreams, visions and teachers.

You may have an itch to travel or ants in your pants during this New Moon as you are geared toward new experiences and adventures in this 9th house that Sagittarius naturally rules. It is time to set new goals and identify your ambitions so you can set your sights.

The Sagittarius energies of Mercury, the Moon and the Sun are a beautiful influence in your 9th houses. If you notice from the keywords in the above paragraph this involves both education and travel. The 9th house is a knack for introducing us to new experiences and adventures through education and travel. When you think about it, both of these subjects awaken our worlds to new information. Many times we are either well-traveled or well-read. This New Moon seeks to open your world through either or both means. Perhaps you are planning a trip, or better yet, maybe you should just go ahead and pack your bags. Perhaps you planning on taking a course(s) in the next semester or an upcoming workshop. This New Moon suggests that you are going to study something new through education or travel.

All about Taurus on DrStandley.com

Now for all Taurus' on the planet this pertains to your 8th house of the wealth of your spouse or partner, spirituality, insurance, legacies, other people's money, stocks, bonds, taxes, inheritances, wills, surgeries and astral experiences. It is the house of regeneration, and covers death, transformation, sex, legal matters, and metaphysics.

This New Moon in the 8th house of helpful financial backers works in your favor. Make certain you are well aware of the places or people that represent your 8th house. Perhaps you have just not set your sights high enough or expanded your horizons wide enough. This New Moon in Sagittarius motto is, "I see/perceive therefore I am" so the question to you is, "Where do I see myself?" This New Moon brings Taurus a lucky break, which can help you get out of a sticky situation. Helpful people and helpful circumstances come out of the woodwork. Make certain you are not just being a stubborn bull and crapping on an idea before it is finished being presented to you. Let's put it this way, cows and bulls are ALWAYS standing in green pastures. ALWAYS! They are attracted to the best and to the green (money). Get your mind straight Taurus because you are the sign that profits.

All about Gemini on DrStandley.com

Now for all Gemini's on the planet this pertains to your 7th house of contractual relationships. This house also rules unions, lawsuits, contracts, partnerships, marriages, agreements, and open enemies with the public. This can be partnerships in business, marriage or a committed relationship that is a live-in arrangement. It also includes long-term associations, the animus (underlying passion or force), the relationship between soul and personality.

This New Moon is taking your relationship to new heights and will bring an agreement or coming together with your current relationship. Granted there will be some Gemini relationships who will decide to go their separate ways because they want two different things. That's called, "growing" but "growing apart". And those who are single are likely to find a new Love in their Life. Gemini does tend to fall in Love during the late Fall and we are in the late Fall. Some will fall in Love and some will fall out of Love. All the same, it is a period of growth, change and renewal in this 7th house of committment. This renewal of energy could bring an engagement or a serious decision to finally marry after a long courtship or engagement. Uh oh . . . I'm a Gemini and have been engaged for about 10 years now. LOL

All too often Cancer gets a little too comfortable in the same place. This New Moon in the house of daily routine is asking you to adopt a new routine. There's a new you in town! This New Moon wants you to get back on your daily health, fitness and nutrition routine. There may also be a job opportunity in this house of work, work ethic, co-workers and employees. This could put you on the path to that new job, hobby, career or creative outlet that you have been wanting all along. Working more and working-out are all in store for you.

It is here and there is newness. There may be a new person introduced to the family through marriage or a baby, there may be change in residence or a new room addition or even new furniture. Something is expanding, growing and reshaping in this 4th house. Whatever it is, it is exciting and brings that sense of newness that is much needed in this area of your Life. Maybe the home is expanding with a new room additional, a renovation or moving to a bigger space. It's getting BIG around here!

This New Moon may have you on a teaching, workshop or talking binge.

Even if you don't have a teaching certificate, you can teach what you know. You might know how to play the piano or ride horses, which you can teach to others. Teaching, talking and writing are very big for you. Maybe this is a bunch of upcoming meetings about a new project.

This house also rules your personal earnings, bankers, budgets, money that 'you' make, material resources, value system, monetary gains and losses, security. Basically this house is about your self-worth.

When it comes to you and money right now, it is important for you to think long term investment. This fiery New Moon can cause money to slip through your hands but it can also cause you to think bigger about money and what to do with it. This 2nd house is the house of self-worth and when you get a better handle on your worth, then money sky-rockets for you. The Sagittarian archer takes aim very high, pulls back his bow and shoots. There is nothing else in sight except the intended target. BULLS-EYE! This is a time for setting personal financial goals and setting out to attain them.

All about Capricorn on DrStandley.com

Now for all Capricorn's on the planet this pertains to your 12th house of the hidden realm, subconscious, past, pain, karma, jails, institutions, hospitals, finances of friends, secret sorrows, fears, self-destruction, large animals, skeletons in closet, self-undoing and self-injury. It is about your hidden strengths, weaknesses and what you don't want others to see or know about you, unredeemed karma and selfless service to humanity. Refrain from letting this house frighten you because it is necessary that you look at your own self-undoing in order to keep yourself on the straight path.

What you need to jam into your brain is a more positive outlook on Life. Capricorn is the most pessimistic, skeptical and negative sign, which tends to see the dark before the dawn. You need to literally brainwash yourself to see things from a more positive and lit-up perspective. It's all in what you see. This New Moon says, "I see/perceive therefore I am" so you perception is vital to this next step in your Life. What you see is literally what you get. Rub your eyes and focus dear Capricorn. This New Moon is all about excitement, adventure and future goals and ambitions. Where you see yourself is exactly where you will be. And that's no joke!

It shows your standing in the community and social status. It can reflect your attitude to parenting.

Well it appears Pisces has been thinking bigger than I thought. As the visionary of the zodiac, you have an eyeball on each side of your head enabling you to see 360 degrees. Couple that kind of vision with 'the big picture' dreams and visions of Sagittarius and this can really take you far in your career. This New Moon is kicking up your career several notches and will be pushing you to go for it. Just go for it and don't look back at your tail. If you look back at your tail then you will be caught up in a whirlpool type of motion. Fish now how to swim straight and fast. Fish also know how to take a flying leap out of the water and into the air where they can be seen. Fly little fishy . . . FLY!
