WOOD RAT LUNAR MONTH Dec 6 – Jan 5 2019

by Susan Levitt

Dec 6 2018 is a new Moon in Sagittarius. Mutable Fire sign Sagittarius rules the 9th house of travel, philosophy, and education. The new Moon, Sun, and Jupiter are all in Sagittarius for new ideas and interesting journeys. Time for a change of scenery, even a short day trip, now that Mercury is no longer retrograde as of this new Moon.

This new Moon begins the month of the Wood Rat. In Chinese astrology, Rat is smart and clever. Rat can plan, structure, and organize. Plus Rat is very social and loves the pack, making this a good lunar month to network, make key connections, and expand your circle.

The element Wood represents growth and development, adding more enthusiasm and energy to daily activities. Rat excels in business so this can be an ideal time for year-end business negotiations, career positioning, and data collection and interpretation to create strategy. Contact me for your yearly astrology forecast for your business plans in 2019.

The new Moon and Sun square Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Mars conjunct Neptune can bring discouragement, or a veil of confusion about ideals and goals. So be thorough before stepping forward with plans. Delusion or fantasy about partnerships will become clear under the influence of this Sagittarian new Moon because independent Sagittarius is known for direct and to-the-point communication.

Four planets are unaspected during this new Moon: Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. For some, it might be difficult to find your center. Should this occur, stay with Rat realism and focus on the details to stay grounded. Contact me for your tarot card reading if facing life choices. Luck is strongest for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey years.

Happy new Moon,
