New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius at 23 degrees on December 14th
Solar Eclipse conjuncts Mercury in Sagittarius, trines Mars in Aries and squares Neptune in Pisces.
The Sagittarius New Moon awakens an inner need for many kinds of stimulation. Having recently completed a contemplative period, your body craves for some excitement now. You may find yourself daydreaming about travel to foreign lands, or maybe tackling a philosophical conundrum.
Boredom is an issue that has your fingers tapping restlessly. What are you to do about it? There are many ways to distract yourself. Maybe a road trip is in order. Or, how about a week in the wilderness? Maybe bungee jumping? Mull over the many possibilities available to you. Pick something that is not only physically active, but offers you a learning experience as well.
Think of options outside of your normal routine, even if it means something as simple as taking a different route home from work. Figure out how you can add a little spice in various areas to keep you from getting the doldrums. If physical limitations that keep you from ranging too far, look at ways to travel mentally. Workshops, seminars, and classes can usually do the trick.
Books have a way of taking us away from ourselves. Keep your brain satisfied and you won’t go wrong. If you crave more adventurous fare, remember to weigh the pros and cons before leaping into action. Check out the feasibility in detail. Aim for an activity that you can look back on with pride rather than embarrassment.

There will be a lot of chatting around the water cooler today as minds and hearts come together and people feel like sharing. Fortunately, this brief contact helps us listen with sensitivity as well as express our feelings. Mental processes are stimulated by emotional content, but be careful not to make decisions based solely on your feelings or the mood of the moment. We are attuned to one another both at a mental and a feeling level. This is an excellent time to reach out to family members, and today is one of those days when friends feel like extended family. Journaling is an excellent idea today.

There can be quite a surge of erotic, sexual energy during the few hours of this particular transit, which is something that most people respond to on some level, consciously
or not. Emotional power blends with physical prowess to help folks feel excited, passionate about what they’re doing and internally aligned. We express our emotions with ease and pay attention to our bodies. Actions taken now are based on clear feelings and should be successful. There’s a certain youthful, impetuous feeling to this brief period that can be quite fun and refreshing. Sparks can fly, in more ways than one!

We’d be best off if we avoided making business and personal decisions until this short transit is over, because we could easily misread even the clearest information or misinterpret the issues at hand. Our perceptions are clouded at this moment and we’re in a vulnerable position. We can be deceived because of it. Plus, our attention wanders off again and again as we succumb to the escapist tendencies this influence inevitably brings. We’re oversensitive and may misconstrue what others say. This is a good time to lay low and utilize our preferred method for staying grounded. It’s particularly important to avoid addictive substances and behaviors right now.
