The New Moon 23 December 2022 is at 1º Capricorn Decan 1. Aspect: Square Ceres & Square Jupiter. Fixed Star: Spiculum in the bow of the Archer. Tarot Card: 2 Of Pentacles. Healing Crystal: Moss Agate.
New Moon In Capricorn Decan 1
This decan is the home of the ruthless fixed star Facies (8º Capricorn). The similarity with the name Facies and Fascist is too uncanny to ignore when you have some prime fascistic types born within this decan.
Moon in Capricorn 1 natives include; Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, Marine Le Pen, Ayaan Hirsi Ali (Who has had death threats), Melania Trump, Mark Chapman (John Lennon’s killer), plus the horoscope for the actual Death of John Lennon. (Facies can be associated with assassination.)
Indeed the values of Capricorn 1 are actually pretty similar to a fascist mindset, whether you like it or not. The word Fascist is tainted by WW2, but its true definition is actually not really that sinister. Fascismo is an Italian term and comes from Fascio meaning ‘a bundle of rods’. This suggests strength through unity, as a single rod breaks easily, but a bunch is difficult to snap.
This New moon highlights the badasses and black sheeps of the family. Those touched by this new moon then, will find that they have to dish out tough love. This decan is dominated by the constellation Sagittarius the archer, so these folk aim high with their arrows and shoot to kill.
National Emergencies & Fascism
Fascism arises out of a national emergency, where things have got so bad that a strongly authoritarian leader is necessary to rein in the chaos. Interestingly, Brady says that Facies can be both humanitarian OR sadist. So a perfect ‘parent’ might emerge during this new moon to rein in the ‘children’ of the State that are causing anarchy. “Fascism rejects assertions that violence is automatically negative in nature, and views political violence, war, and imperialism as means that can achieve national rejuvenation.” ~ Wikipedia
The new moon December 2022 could fortify the family unit and a strong family is also hard for the state to dominate. Family loyalty is then of utmost importance and by extension, tribal loyalty, whether it be to the nation or group that wants to promote its self-interest.
Moon Capricorn 1 has a sense of working together for a long-term goal. Harsh Northern winters breed those of hardy stock and one who knows that a solo man will surely starve. Family unity is a strength, just like the bundle of rods. I’m also thinking of Mafia-type families too might start to arise, protection rackets and the like. During the depression in the 1930s gangsters took the law into their own hands in the USA. Does history repeat?
New Moon December Tarot Card
The Tarot card associated with this decan is the two of pentacles “The man in the Two of Pentacles needs to find balance and moderation in his life too. All work and no play made Jack a dull boy. If he allows no time for relaxation or fun, he is liable to become tired and tense and he may find his mood fluctuates like the waves behind him, up one day and down the next.”
Materialism and ‘matter’ is vital to this decan as well as the cycle of time. Natural law is what gives them their prophetic ability. “One Pentacle is higher than the other and surrounding them is a figure of eight loop, the infinity symbol… All energy is recycled whether it is good or bad for energy is simply energy and cannot be destroyed. What goes around comes around..” ~ teachmetarot
New Moon Fixed Star
Spiculum 1º means “spear” in Latin. It is the name of a cluster of stars known as the Lagoon or Trifid Nebula. “There is indeed a strong tendency towards depression and a rather morbid outlook religiously…There is often that feeling of negative ‘fear of God’, rather than comfort from the sensing of His Presence”
This is one of the nebulas that bring eyesight problems and there is a sense of foreboding associated with it. However there is also a positive side “well aspected, the Trifid, or Spiculum, shows just the opposite in the person. There can be a very real feeling of companionship with the entire Universe and its Creator and remarkable ability to plunge deeply into the seas of philosophy”

New Moon December Aspects
Moon square Ceres
Moon square Ceres could bring grief to the collective. A beloved public figure may pass away or there may be upsetting news about children. Sometimes, there is a heroic rescue connected with environmental issues. This aspect could highlight ancestral trauma or the need to address any unrecognised childhood wounds one may have. It would be a good day for a counselling session as the square does not sugar-coat and will get to the root of any problems.
Moon Square Jupiter
Moon square Jupiter is a time when the public mood is over-the-top and exuberant. This is an unstoppable, carnival-type energy. There can be extremist and bombastic behaviour which can sometimes turn vulgar and lewd. People will want to gamble and take risks. It is hard to find a happy medium between feasting and fasting. There could be protests on restrictions in spending.

New Moon December 2022 Summary
The two new moon aspects become a Sun/Moon T-square to Ceres opposite Jupiter which I discussed in the December report. The meaning echoes the threat of recession or depression mentioned earlier with the Moon in Capricorn Decan 1. Ceres opposite Jupiter wants to be generous and spend, but the square from frugal Capricorn has no cash!
Jupiter and Ceres are also the Roman equivalents to the parents of Persephone (Zeus & Demeter). So we must pay attention to the Persephone myth. In the myth Demeter went into mourning when her daughter Persephone was kidnapped (or raped) by Pluto.
We could say that Plutocrat elites are indeed raping and pillaging regular people through their energy bills right now. Demeter’s mourning period is the northern hemisphere’s Winter. This is a very important time of the year as the Sun crosses the winter solstice point of 0º Capricorn. At the same time, there is hope for resurrection as after December 21 the days start to get longer again, slowly but surely.
This is a transition point as Capricorn 1 looks both backward (Saturn) and forward (Jupiter.) just like the Roman god Janus, which the next month January is named after. Janus rules gates, doorways, time and endings. This new moon December looks like it is bringing some frustration to a head just before Christmas. December in general has a calmer feel, but if any frustrations are building up in collective this New Moon could be the date it surfaces.
It’s a moment where so many will want to let off steam due to the extremist tendency of Moon square Jupiter. Poverty and cold could force people onto the streets also. New moon’s bring new starts or approaches and alot of us will be setting intentions not to be taken for fools any longer. We must also guard against getting too morbid in our thoughts. Try to keep optimistic, remember the light is returning and everything is a cycle.
