New Moon on December 22 at 0º Capricorn
This New Moon falls in Capricorn Decan 1 ~ I summarised this as Crystallising Dreams & Venerating Loved Ones.
Decan rulers: Jupiter & Saturn. Deity: Asklepios, (God of Medicine)
“They have a strong and honorable work-ethic and are so religiously dedicated to whatever path they choose in life, that every business deal they make is sacrosanct. Everything in their life is a crusade, no matter how run-of-the-mill the situation might be..”
Moon on fixed star Acumen in constellation Scorpio. Mag 3.2 and is a star cluster known as the Ptolemy Cluster “there is a tendency to be either the ‘hellfire and damnation brigade’ or to take up a fierce anti-religious and even anti-God stance. But at their best, well aspected, they can have very sharp minds and a perception well above average as though, perhaps ‘blind’ to what we see and take for granted, they see what we do not, at levels where eyesight does not reach.” ~ Dr Eric Morse
New moon rituals are perfect for planting new seeds and starting afresh. We are essentially working on the blank canvas of the dark moon where our ideas can gestate in the new moon soil. These thought-seeds are slowly awoken by the growing crescent moon as the days progress towards the illumination of the full moon. The darkness of the new moon gives peace and tranquillity while our seed intentions slowly take root and sustenance form the fertile earth below. This period cannot be rushed and it is a great time to have some quiet dark-moon time to compose our goals and plans for the month ahead. Any wishes made at this time carry great force.
The moon is waxing (growing), so we are working in tune with nature if we are setting in motion things that we want to expand or blossom. This is also the best time to write a list of cosmic orders, which can be big or small. Large-scale projects can bare fruit in 6 months time when the full Moon is the same sign again. Smaller wishes have a two-week timescale to be birthed at the next full moon. The manifestation spell will be that much more powerful if the subjects that you want to birth resonate with the mood of the current new moon. Every month I will present the influences surrounding the current new moon and suggest ways of utilising its energy in order to make a powerful spell for manifestation or impregnation.
