New Moon Dec. 2011

New Moon Dec. 2011

This month's New Moon occurs on December 25, 2011, 3:06 JST (all the timing in this article is to be calculated in JST) at the 3rd degree of Capricorn. And this month, the Full Moon occurs with Cancer Moon opposing the Capricorn Sun, so we had better be aware of the themes of Water-Earth polarity. Both signs belong to feminine signs and are oriented toward maintaining what acquired in the past. Both also belong to cardinal signs so the pace of development will be quick and initiating. Imagining the Moon as a container and the Sun as energy to fill it, we have Capricorn's getting things done energy to fulfill collective urge of the container that wishes emotional closeness and security among family during this Moon month (especially around the Full Moon). It is not constructive if you get too harsh about achieving your own goal to disrupt emotionally connecting atmosphere that everyone has in general. Let's see what's going on in the world with these points of view in mind for this Moon month.

Aspects to the Sun

Right before this New Moon, the Sun came through Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter and Uranus aspects from 12/20 through 12/23 while engrossing into Capricorn. Last month, I have talked of those timing as "leaders could take risks to go for the ideal, or I am hoping that many leaders realize this timing as the chance to do just that". With Venus active at the same time, Newly elected Osaka municipal governor Hashimoto actively greet with various national politicians, and report of death of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il came out around Sun-Saturn-Neptune aspect.

Then the Sun will make contact with Pluto on 12/29. So themes of power and perspective will be prominent in this month's leadership activities. Possible power struggle over leadership and/or proposal of perspective to show leader's strength or powerlessness might come forth.

Then in the new year, the Sun will touch Mars on 1/13, and Saturn on 1/20, and Uranus and Jupiter on 1/22. This movement implies that after leader has started some action (Mars), he/she will face important organizational decision (Saturn-Jupiter). I felt that the Venus' idealistic movement around this time holds the key to the situation.

Aspects among the rest of the planets

There is no important aspect of note among outer planets for this Moon month. But Saturn and Neptune continue to be close together, so themes of dissolving of order of making ideal come true set a tone of this period.

The first inner planet to look at is Mercury, which is now catching up with the point where it left before its retrograde started. On 1/1, it will finally come to the point at which it started retrogradation and make contact with Mars! So the new year resolution next year will be the one carefully thought out during December. Then from 1/7 to 1/13, Mercury will make contact with Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto in sequence, which seems to lead to the Sun's making aspect with Mars. Faculty of intelligence and communication will be busy preparing what leader will put forth around that timing.

Next let's look at what Venus is up to. Venus will first be in touch with Saturn, Neptune and Jupiter from 1/13 to 1/15. This movement is related with what I have talked about in the Sun's section, and also with Mercury's sequential movement toward Pluto. The story seems to be moving around Sun-Mars on 1/13. There are various ways to make those energy work in the society, but two of the important ingredients are cooperation and value making. So there could be movement to form some cooperative activity for the ideal to be concretized, or some sort of idealistic value making will be going on about rules and orders. It could be idealistic value judgement against movement started by leader on 1/13, etc. etc...

Next, we talk about the action department Mars. The important aspect which Mars makes in this Moon month are already talked about in the above section, but Mars touches Mercury on 1/1 for the new year's resolution and then touches the Sun on 1/13 for leadership's new action!

Planets which change direction or sign

Planets other than Sun and Moon sometimes change their direction of apparent movement seen from the earth. When a planet changes its direction, it moves slowly and may leave its mark on various social events in the world. Within this Moon month, the planet changing its direction is Jupiter. Jupiter, which has been moving backward since 8/30, will turn direct on 12/26. Jupiter is related to individual freedom and philosophy or moral among group of people, so when retrograding, importance of individual philosophy might be more emphasized but when getting back to direct, ways to incorporate individual opinion into the philosophy of whole group might be more of the concern.

And planets, especially those that move slowly, change their signs in sync with shifts in corresponding profile of social or collective psychology. Within this Moon month, planets which change it's sign, among the planets which travel slower than the earth, are non.

During this Moon month, keeping the points I have raised above, let's try to use our Capricorn Sun's firm-will-to-achieve energy to mix nicely with feeling-secure-through-sameness needs of Cancer Moon of this month. It should be interesting to observe those symbols reflected in the real socio-situations in the world.
