New Moon in Sagittarius December 23, 2022

The December 2022 New Moon occurs in the nakshatra of Moola, in the sign of Sagittarius. Moola is the constellation in which we find the galactic center of the Milky Way. Ruled by Niritti, goddess of destruction and negotiations. Themes of transformation, compromise, rebirth, and purging that which has served its purpose are strong right now.


Although the sign of Scorpio is most often associated with transformation, it happens here in Sagittarius as well. "The Sagittarius impulse works to dissociate us from such attachments and make us aspire to the higher goal to which the arrow is aimed."

-Bepin Behari, Myths and Symbols of Vedic Astrology.



Combine that with the potent New Moon energy, a time of hidden strength and sowing the seeds of promise and potential. Venus and Mercury are also present in the later degrees of Sagittarius, in the nakshatras of Purva Ashada and Uttara Ashada, creating a 4 planet stellium here for 2.5 days.
