New Moon Love

New Moon conjunct Venus shines a light on your love relationships and your creativity. You should feel more loving, affectionate and sociable but Saturn gives a more serious and practical tone to your relationships. This is a new moon for mutual respect, loyalty and commitment in relationships. You should feel it in your heart is someone is serious about you or if you are sure about them.

New love is possible and would likely have a karmic feel as if you had known them before. A noticeable age difference is possible, or a student-teacher relationship dynamic may develop. Practicalities such as distance, career or finances may cause concern or delays. A romance that starts during this new moon phase will have a good chance of being a long-term relationship.

The new moon sitting between Venus and Saturn is good for saving and investing your money. You should consider the long-term financial viability of your new moon goals.

Change and Excitement

New Moon trine Uranus makes this an exciting new moon of unexpected events, self-discovery and revelation. You will feel like trying sometime new, outside of your normal routine. You should enjoy more freedom to leave your comfort zone and widen your social circle with some extraordinary people.

If you have a partner you will be seeking different kind of pleasures. Experimentation in the bedroom should keep your eyes from wandering. Incorporating some form of change or excitement can rejuvenate an old relationship and bring renewed commitment.

If single, an electric or kinky type of attractiveness will bring eccentric types within your range. You could attract people from cultures or lifestyles different from your own, or be attracted to them. A new relationship started during this moon phase will satisfy your need for love and excitement while still offering stable companionships and serious commitment.

Your new moon goals could be more about money than love. If this is the case the positive influence of Uranus lets you take some calculated risks. A sudden windfall or unexpected sources of income are possible. Quit while you are ahead if tempted to gamble.

  1. Jamie ..question

    I understand the impact of this moon will be positive but what about for a person who has his natal sun at 29 degree Gemini.

    Shouldnt that translate into hardship as the sun represents the ego the males of the family the pride?

  2. Hello! Excellent articles, i really love the way you analyze the aspects, you have a very special approach. By the way, there is something wrong with the links in the previous and next moon phases above.

  3. Hi Jamie!

    I am so happy to read that this moon is positive. I have big changes on a personal level that day so it sounds great, I am just a little bit concern on the professional level by the fact that Saturn transit will square my natal Saturn… and I would be grateful to hear your thoughts about this:

    On the new moon 20 September I closed a very important agreement, at the time the moon was falling over my natal Saturn.
    Now I am going to challenge this agreement next Monday/Tuesday (some points have not been drafted as it was agreed and they are not financially as good as they should be as some important points are missing on paper). So I probably will get an answer by the 18 December (whether a revision is accepted or not) and if admitted it would trigger a full revision which can go for months. There are a couple of complicated points to argue but I feel confident that my arguments are strong enough to be admitted. Could this new moon on the 18 December which squares my natal Saturn and therefore the point where the new moon 20 September fell play in my favour due to Uranus ( risk are perceived as calculated) and Venus (more money coming to me through the new agreement)?

    Thanks !!

  4. Hello Mr. Jamie, I have a curious question: My natal sun is in Leo at 26′ 59 Degrees, this new moon I think Trines my Sun is that true? August 19th 1994 Denver, Co.

  5. Hi Jamie,
    Good article and wow, lots to think about. I am taking my 21 year old daughter, who is in her last year of Uni to a place I have also longed to go, but somehow never got to, Venice, Italy. We leave at exactly the time the New Moon is, 6:30 am flight and will be there for 18,19, 20th. I have 25 Sag as my 12th house cusp (Galactic Center) and I was born with an exact Saturn (10th) 2 deg Sag, opposing Venus (4th house) in 2 Gemini. My daughter has Sun in Libra opposing Saturn (5th opposed 11th) and in Libra to Aries…so wow, this theme really applies. It is our Mother/Daughter Christmas bonding trip. How about that?

  6. I have 27′ Neptune Retrograde and 24′ Sag – South Node and almost conjunct my moon in 20′ Sag. What might this transiting New moon aspects mean for me? I also notice Venus will be in quite close degrees as well.
