New Moon December 18, 2017
The Perfect Balance
The New Moon in Sagittarius will occur early Monday morning on December 18, 2017, but if you really want to take advantage of this energy then starting Friday evening, December 16, 2017, when the Moon shifts into Sagittarius and starts the build-up to the New Moon, you can start “Setting Intentions” and making out Wish Lists and start doing energy work or rituals!
New Moon-December 18 2017
The New Moon occurs on Monday, December 18, 2017, is at 26 degrees Sagittarius. The strongest “Astrological Influences” during the New Moon involve Saturn & Venus. Saturn’s influence would normally make this a sad or depressed kind of energy, but with wild Uranus also involved in a harmonious connection to this New Moon, we awoke and things can go much better.
This New Moon has just the right energy to help us commit to a serious relationship and for meeting someone to share our lives with as real-life partners and “Soulmate” like people start to surface. Positive changes can be made now without upsetting in place structures or disturbing important routines in our daily life. This creates a “perfect balance” between leaving the past behind and helping us create a whole new reality for ourselves.
This New Moon’s Meaning
A New Moon in a 28-day calendar month represents the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one. A New Moon in astrological terms is when the Sun is conjunct the Moon, this gives us a strong burst of energy and initiative to start something new. A New Moon is a fresh start or new beginning and is an excellent time to turn over a new leaf or start a new project, it’s a good time to also let go of old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as we search for something new and look for creative ways to make progress.
Any effects the New Moon causes can last up until the next New Moon on January 16th, and the best time to make a fresh start or start a new project is during the first two weeks after the New Moon occurs which is called the “Waxing” cycle, and it lasts from Dec 18 through Jan 1 until the Full Moon occurs.
New Moon – December 2017 Astrology
The New Moon of Dec 18 makes three strong aspects to Saturn, Venus, & Uranus.
Saturn will have the strongest influence on this New Moon because it is so incredibly close to it. But the Venus conjunction and Uranus Trine or connections can help lighten up Saturn’s heavy influence and can actually turn this challenging energy into a very positive New Moon.
Saturn & The New Moon
When the New Moon conjuncts Saturn it means it’s a time to stand up and be counted. Hard work, discipline, and patience are going to be needed to attend to your duties and obligations. This aspect often signifies hardship, sadness, and fear. However, the loving influence of Venus and awakened Uranus will bring out the better sides of Saturn.
This actually can be a time of achievement, satisfaction, and recognition instead. If you choose to take on more responsibility and act more mature it will earn you respect and promotions. Promise yourself starting now that you will do better and work at making your life more secure and stable for you and your loved ones so you can build a strong foundation for your future.
This is a good time to make your life more simple and efficient. This helps us achieve our goals in a less complicated and easier way. This New Moon is helping us to be more strong in our relationships, and to be the one others can count on, perhaps be someone’s lifeline or rock in their time of need, and to act as a guide or mentor in some way. This energy is great for fro family bonding as it helps us strengthen our relationships.
Love & The New Moon
The New Moon conjuncts lovely Venus and this shines a giant spotlight on our loving relationships! We may feel more loving, affectionate, and sociable, but heavy Saturn does make this a more serious kind of energy so we may be more practical about how we express our affections. This is a time for mutual respect, loyalty, and for making stronger commitments to our relationships. If someone cares about you now, you’ll feel it right in your soul, and your heart will tell you just how you feel about others now.
This New Moon brings with it New Love possibilities that have a strong Karmic or Past Life connection, where you feel like you have known them before. Under Saturn’s influence, some folks will get together with a noticeable age difference or the relationship will have a student/teacher dynamic to it. There may be issues of concern and delays in our relationships that have to do with distance, finances, or our careers during this time. But a romance that starts under this New Moon energy has a strong chance at being long-term, if it can get past the first few months after Mercury goes out of its Retrograde cycle, so late February into March.
The New Moon is meeting up with Venus & Saturn and this can really help us to save and invest money, but we must take into consideration how realistic our financial goals are and if they can actually be achieved. This energy is also good for spending money on the possessions that are for the long-term, so stuff like home furniture, houses, or cars, ya know the big stuff! However, be careful with your money as we should only be spending money on the things we need, which is easier said than done with it being the Holiday Season.
Twists, Turns, & Excitement
The New Moon is making a good connection to surprising Uranus as well! This can make our New Moon experience more exciting, perhaps with revelations and some unexpected events that help us learn more about who we are. Think outside the box and stray from some of your normal routines, and try something new or different over the next few weeks. The freedom you seek can be enjoyed if you choose to leave your comfort zone and widen your social circle with some amazing like-minded folks.
If you have a partner this can be a strong time to try new or different ways of pleasing each other. It’s a time of experimentation in the bedroom. Try something new and exciting together under this New Moon energy, as this can be especially rejuvenating and help old and new relationships both. This is a strong time to renew our commitments to each other.
All my single folks out there reading this could easily attract someone who is very different so they might be more wild, eccentric, unusual, and extreme. It’s also a time where we attract folks who are from different cultures, backgrounds, or just lifestyles from our own. Any NEW relationships that start under this New Moon phase can be both loving and exciting but still can offer the stability and companionship that makes for a good solid union.
Most of us will be more worried about money than love however during this particular New Moon. If you are worried about your finances then let the positive influence of Uranus help you take some sort of calculated risks. There also can be sudden windfalls and unexpected sources of income showing up! If you want to gamble even a little bit, just remember to quit while you are ahead!

New Moon Summary
This New Moon can have a balancing effect on us with Saturn and Uranus involved, so we can have what we want and actually keep the good things around. By blending the old with the new energies where what’s traditional meets up with new age ways of thinking and doing things, we can call in what is considered to be both safe and risky at the same time. With Venus & Saturn close by the New Moon, we can call in a nice mix of stability and excitement into our love lives and around our finances.
It’s easier to take on more responsibility while still maintaining our independence and freedom. Positive changes can be made while keeping our existing structures and life just the way we want it to be. Any changes that happen during this New Moon phase are going to be part of a longer-term energy which is coming to an end, so leave the past behind and create a whole new reality. This energy can be the perfect balance of what you desire and need if you allow it to just be.
