The New Moon in Sagittarius raises our aspirations and aims us towards greater spiritual heights, a detail that can be overlooked amid so much consumer marketing that precedes the year-end festive period in many countries. This year, Jupiter, the planet ruling Sagittarius, happens to be in that sign and close to the Sun and Moon. Jupiter being the planet of growth, expansion and luck can seem quite beneficial, however in this case it may merely exaggerate the negative themes of this new moon.
The New Moon is squaring Neptune, which is famous for its veiled, blurry qualities. Neptune places everything in soft focus, where definitions are not at all clear or obvious. But this is also the planet of compassion, assisting us in seeing the common ground.
With Neptune in Pisces, the natural imagery of the ocean is accentuated. Results may come only after a struggle as suggested by Neptune’s square to the New Moon and its tight conjunction with Mars, the Warrior Planet. Mars energy often starts a fight, through pointed provocation. It adds a sinister, underhand influence to the aggression, sexuality and nastiness of Mars in hard aspect. This new moon has the potential to make you feel insecure, guilty or playing the victim. Seeing only the best in people increases the chance of becoming disillusioned or worse.

If you are feeling frustrated or anxious, physical exercise or sports can be quite beneficial. During this lunation, Jupiter, Neptune, and Saturn are each located in the signs they rule — effectively on home turf, giving us a sense of greater strength and prominence.
