The New Moon is in Sagittarius occurs at 1:30 AM EST, which has a strong 'orb of influence' of 3 to 5 days, but I like to give it a full 7 days to account for your intuition. Keep in mind that there is a New Moon and then a Full Moon every two weeks. So two weeks from now, on Monday, January 1, 2018 there will be a Full Moon in Capricorn because the Sun will be in Capricorn and the Moon will be in Cancer. During a Full Moon, the Sun and the Moon are in opposite signs, and during a New Moon (like there is today) the Sun and the Moon are in the same sign (today that is Sagittarius).
**NOTE -- I write only one (1) Daily Horoscope for all 12 Sun Signs. The Monthly, Yearly and Generational Horoscopes are tailored to each of the 12 Sun Signs.
While we experience the New Moon in Sagittarius click that link for the monster-size write-up. Additionally, there are two (2) aspects to the New Moon, which is one (1) conjunction and one (1) sextile. In the monster-size write-up, the aspects I address are the ones coming from major aspects in the area. The two (2) aspects that I am referring to on this page are only the lunar aspects, which pass within 12 to 14 hours of their exactness.
Technically speaking, the first aspect today, which is the Moon conjunct the Sun is actually the New Moon and IS a lunar aspect. Lunar = Moon. But aside from that, there are two (2) additional lunar aspects. If you notice from the list of aspects at the bottom of this page, the Moon actually moves into Capricorn at 8:33 AM EST this morning. The New Moon in Sagittarius occurs at 1:30 AM EST in the last 04 degrees of Sagittarius.
As we wake up, the Moon will conjunct Saturn, giving us a sobering effect on our emotions. We are rather serious and business-like. This conjunction can make you feel a bit lacking in confidence, but when targeted to ambitions, goals, aims and desires, this will make up for the lack of warmth and comfort that was received from a parent or authority figure. This is because the Moon rules the mother and Saturn rules the father. It's time to stop blaming the mother or the father for a lack of security or for having any emotional baggage. Chances are you are an adult reading this and it is time to move on with your own Life. It is best to work on your goals and ambitions rather than continually mull over what the parent did or did not do. Grow into your and be responsible to yourself.
Later this evening, the Moon will sextile Mars, which is energetic and gives us the necessary force to carry out projects, tasks or challenges to completion and success. It is difficult not to win when this sextile is present because emotionally speaking, WE ARE IN IT TO WIN IT. This placement is enterprising, it is energetic and it is all about winning and making money. Have you ever heard the phrase, "If it isn't a hell no, then it's a hell yeah!" Well this aspect is a, "Hell Yeah!" This aspect definitely plays well with others, as it is enthusiastic, which causes people to respond well in return. There is eagerness and excitement, along with impulsiveness that accompanies this energy.
Now when you couple these two (2) aspects above with all of the major aspects that I wrote about in the New Moon in Sagittarius monster-size write-up then you can see that this is a exciting, impressive, fun and successful New Moon.
