### New Moon December 2013

This month's New Moon occurs on December 3, 2013, 9:22 JST (all the timing in this carticle is to be calculated in JST) at the 11th degree of Sagittarius (incidentally, it is right on my Ascendant, to the degree). Since last year, we are thinking about degree meanings with Sabian symbols as hints. The symbol of the New Moon degree is "the lamp of physical enlightenment at the left temple". I have explained that in order to think about degree meaning, we have to geometrically divide a sign into smaller units until the width reduces to 1 degree. I am using the method in which a sign is divided first into 3 sections of 10 degrees (decans). Then this 10 degree is further divided into 2 sections of 5 degrees. Finally, this 5 degree section is divided into 5 of each degree. With each dividing operation, we are adding a bit of meaning, assigning a role signified by the number within the small section as a whole. So the 11th degree of Sagittarius, where the New Moon this month is, belongs to the second decan of the sign, first half of the decan and 1st of the 5 degree section. Let us code this as "Sagittarius 2-1-1" in this article.

### New Moon November 2013

This month's New Moon occurs on November 3, 2013, 21:49 JST (all the timing in this carticle is to be calculated in JST) at the 12th degree of Scorpio. Since last year, we are thinking about degree meanings with Sabian symbols as hints. The symbol of the New Moon degree is "an embassy ball". I have explained that in order to think about degree meaning, we have to geometrically divide a sign into smaller units until the width reduces to 1 degree. I am using the method in which a sign is divided first into 3 sections of 10 degrees(decans). Then this 10 degree is further divided into 2 sections of 5 degrees.

So the 12th degree of Scorpio, where the New Moon this month is, belongs to the second decan of the sign, first half of the decan and 2nd of the 5 degree section. Let us code this as "Scorpio 2-1-2" in this article.
