New Moon 7 December 2018 – Immorality and Perversion

New Moon December 2018 AstrologyThe New Moon on Friday December 7, 2018 falls at 15° Sagittarius. The New Moon December 2018 astrology is mainly influenced by the alignment of Mars and Neptune at 13° Pisces. The testing square aspect between the New Moon and Mars Neptune brings out the worst of this alignment. The December 2018 new moon hasa sinister influence.

Major themes of the December 7 new moon include anger, fear, deception, confusion, immorality and perversion. At 16° Sagittarius, a fixed star in Hercules Constellation will cause irritation from women and a ruthless drive to gain power. The keys to avoiding loss and disappointment from new moon December 2018 are honesty and integrity.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The effects of the December 7 new moon will last four weeks up to the Solar Eclipse on 5 January 2019. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from December 7 to the December 22 Full Moon.

New Moon December 2018 Astrology

The December 7 new moon at 15°07′ Sagittarius is square Mars and Neptune. Tempers are probably already frayed because the November 23 full moon was square Mars. I said that full moon had a nasty feel to it because of Moon square Mars by 3°40′ orb. New Moon December 2018 is square Mars by only 1°34′, so tempers are even more likely to boil over.

Mars conjunct Neptune adds a sinister, underhand influence to the aggression, sexuality and nastiness of Mars in hard aspect. On top of all this, the new moon joins a star in Hercules Constellation which acts like Mars on steroids.

New Moon December 2018 Astrology

Mars Conjunct Neptune

Mars conjunct Neptune is exact only 7 hours after the new moon on December 7, 2018. It is a very powerful influence on the new moon, making the testing square aspect by about 1°30′. While this conjunction can make you feel romantic and sensual, the challenging aspect to the new moon means you will more likely feel paranoid and delusional.

If you are very sensitive and scare easily then you need to take precautions. Over idealization or gullibility would leave you open to deception, scandal or slander. Keep yourself grounded in the real world as much as possible. Your good intentions to help others could easily be taken advantage of. Some people might see your generosity as a weakness, and you could even subconsciously attract spiritual vampires.

Avoid negative environments where violence, crime and drugs are prevalent. Your body could be more susceptible to poisoning and infection. Use protection if sexually active. People in general are more likely to be sexually perverse and use trickery to get in your pants.

New Moon Square Mars

New Moon square Mars can lead to tests of character from your competitors or enemies. Superiors, authorities and men in general may be looking to assert their power, leading to ego conflicts. Remember you may already be irritable and impatient because of the full moon two weeks ago that was also square Mars. So you are more likely to react to any provocation or threats with aggression, nastiness or revenge.

Not only people, but challenging events may force you to defend your goals or desires. A defensive position is best. New Moon December 2018 is likely to cause a buildup of anger, resentment or sexual frustration. Such potentially destructive energies need to be channeled constructively so they do not result in conflict, accidents, muscle pain or exhaustion.

Burning up this hot energy will also lower the risk of being subject to aggression and threats from other people who don’t handle this new moon energy so well. Exercise, hard work, sex or masturbation are preferred so long as you don’t push too hard and strain something. Working on a pet project you are passionate about is another good idea but is probably best done alone.

New Moon Square Neptune

New Moon square Neptune can have a weakening effect on your vitality and make you more susceptible to some psychological and health issues. Events or other people can cause confusion and disappointment, forcing you to battle against the odds. The December 7 new moon has the potential to make you feel insecure, guilty and apologetic. Seeing only the best in people increases the chance of becoming disillusioned or worse.

To counter the deceptive influence of this new moon you must be above-board in all of your dealings. This is not the best time for high stress competitive things like business dealings or negotiations. Predators will easily hone in on your soft side and you could be at greater risk of being taken advantage of.

Hypochondria is another issue you may have to deal with. Problems might be difficult to diagnose or there may be a misdiagnosis. You will also be more sensitive to drugs and alcohol, especially if you already have mental health issues such as paranoia or depression. Personal relationships may be subject to dishonesty and deception. Secrets will be harder to keep and harder to uncover.

New Moon in Hercules

Fixed star Ras Algethi at 16 ♐ 24 is in the Head of Hercules. In hard aspect, it causes much irritation, especially in relationships with women. Ras Algethi corresponds to boldness and a drive to gain power. [1] So the square to Mars Neptune is likely to make people very unethical and immoral in their quest for power. Constellation Hercules is said to give strength of character, tenacity and fixity of purpose, an ardent nature and dangerous passions. [2]

The following celebrities have Ras Algethi in their natal charts: Arsenio Hall (AC and North Node), Bob Hawke (Sun and Mars), John Ramsey (Sun), Jennifer Carpenter (Sun), Tom Waits (Sun), Brigitte Bardot (AC), Cindy Sherman (AC), Ellen DeGeneres (AC), Angela Merkel (AC), Robert Hand (Mercury), Liz Greene (South Node), Bill Cosby (North Node) and Rudy Giuliani (Part of Fortune). The USA Horoscope (Sibly Chart) also has Ras Algethi rising.

New Moon Summary

Mars in almost exact conjunction to Neptune is the main influence on the December 7 new moon. It is a sinister influence because it is square the new moon. Major themes of new moon December 2018 will be anger, fear, deception, confusion, treachery, scandal, revenge, immorality and perversion.

Fixed star Ras Algethi joins the new moon to cause irritation from women and a ruthless drive to gain power. The keys to avoiding loss, suffering and disappointment are honesty and integrity. The actions of others are likely to make you angry, mean and vengeful. The best option would be to ignore any provocation. If you must react then do so in a straight forward, direct and honest way. Don’t leave anything to the imagination.

In particular, the new moon square Mars Neptune increases the risk of being deceived by fraudsters, charlatans, cult leaders and sexual predators. Beware of charismatic people claiming to have the answers to your problems. Sexual abuse by priests is likely to make the news yet again.

However, new moon December 2018 will stimulate your creativity and imagination. So this a good moon phase for art, music, sculpture, dance and drama. Entertainment, charity work and fighting for social causes are excellent ways to use this ethereal energy safely.

It is a good time to look back over the last five months to check how well you have progressed with your personal goals. That lunar eclipse was at 4° Aquarius. You can look back to the August 2018 solar eclipse at 18° Leo which might apply more to your professional goals.If the New Moon December 2018 astrology chart directly affects your Sign you can read about it in your free Monthly Horoscope.

  1. I know Jamie you don’t do houses, but consider the cardinal points (1/4/7/10). If this new moon is exact on the 4th squaring Neptune and mars on the 7th any idea how this could play out Appreciate it:)

    • I do pay a lot of attention to the cardinal points Eli. I have started writing transits for Sun and Moon to the cardinal points to be used for moon phases. So you could read Moon opposite Midheaven transit. Then Moon square Neptune transit. This new moon will activate Neptune square Midheaven in your chart which is the most important thing to research. It sounds like you will be spending your energy on your partner but having to deal with suspicions from your parents or workmates.

  2. Thank you. For some reason I was reading sun opposite MC and sun square Neptune

  3. Thanks Jamie, My birthday was 13th July! next year Jupiter is rx at 15.47 SAG degrees as this new moon and Neptune is making for my natal Mars 1956 (4th house!) and all year persons, Saturn and Pluto opposite our Cancerian sun, any thoughts that could be positive on Jupiter rx on the anaretic degree please, and how does that fit with the 13 July eclipse 2018 for the world bearing in mind that the 1 and half years from this July is the mega Sun, Mercury, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto opposite my Sun (ish). Ps. this year I also had a new moon on my lovely 22 Gemini rx natal Venus in the 8th, never been left any money ever, then my elderly Dad died end August, so I will get a bit of money. His Pluto is 21 Cancer on my Sun!! Will Saturn and Pluto
    conjunction finally shuffle a few more than usual from the Planet so the younger generations can at last get a foot hold and move up ?. I would be grateful to know. If you have time Jamie and are you feeling ok at the moment.?

    • I’m going real well than Linny. So The July 2018 solar eclipse was on your Sun, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are coming up to opposite it. I am not sure what you mean by Jupiter on the anaretic degree, which is 29°. How does that fit in?

  4. Thanks Jamie, really glad you are well. Anaretic degrees are 0, 15, and 29 degrees ???, Its just that this new moon is where Jupiter in Sagittarius will be on 13th July 2019 Rx. One year after that part Solar eclipse this July. I watch all the patterns now and this new moon seems to have a lot of meaning for that point.

    • Okay. I was not aware of 0 and 15 also being anaretic degrees. Yes I know what you means about finding patterns. 20 degrees Cancer and Capricorn have been very active this year with outer planets and eclipses.

      • I noticed that too Jamie!

        I have natal North node in cancer at 21 degrees exactly squaring Saturn and opposing Venus (which is conjunct south node).

        Have been cringing all year noticing how eclipses and some moon phases seem to repeatedly target that sensitive part of my chart. It’s been a ride through pure hell and I’m exhausted, but I am feeling stronger than I have in a long long time. Feels like I am finally aligning with my soul path and waking up to very very painful realities. Still struggling with bad phases though, I am hoping the Jan 5th eclipse bodes well for me!

        I am also Aries Decan 2 ascendant, so I am finishing off a tough Pluto square to this decan phase that started in 2013 :-/ I know next year’s July 2019 eclipse phase is supposed to be really nice, but I have no idea how i’ll get there. Time to go study the next year’s eclipse phases, and see if they continue the Cancer Capricorn theme!

  5. I haven’t had time to look at the New Moon, as it relates to my chart. My only comment is heaven help me. 😥

    • Hang in there Lynn. I can relate. Try and watch Teal Swan videos on surrender, and having faith. Hope this helps, good luck!

  6. Hi Jamie, I do understand and agree that this coming new moon will most likely bring out the worste of people indeed bring to light the worste people among humanity itself, so they can no longer hide, however all things being equal and naturally that is always the case, this also will expose, in acute contrast the best of us, bearing in mind the intent it to make the world a better place, so those who believe in the beauty of this place we call earth, whose beliefs are equally beautiful, morally & ethically sound, are able to lead by example given the example by many in positions of authority, has obviously been far from good, to help sort the chaf from the wood so to speak. This may sound like a very high fantasy pie in tbe sky ideal, yet isnt it an ideal worth working for? Of course that is a matter of personal belief and the choices we make in accords with them, what ever we believe will be made so, if we choose believe in contining to grow this hellish existence, so be it, if we choise to grow a more heavenly one, so be it. I resoect it has been very neccessary for humanity to wake up to itself and see just how cruel, selfish & destructive our intent is becoming by majority of the whole, but that doesnt mean we all are or that we all have to suffer the worste possible outcome because if those who do, it simply is nit as cut & dry, black and white, right and wrong as the binary code thinking we have been dictated we have to have, as much as they wsnt us to behave like androids as extensions of “the machine” the fact is, we are humans…we have a choice? And yes those choices seem to have become so restricted, that we are constantly confronted instead by ultimatum to do or die, but like any disagreement there is ALWAYS more that 2 versions of events, indeed at least a 3rd which is somewhere in between, of course this is “the happy medium” which, again is a choice as to whether to believe that is a possibikity in order for it ever to become a probability? It matters to see or face the fear to be able to overcome it, yet we need to remember what our aim is, Sagittarius season is obviously a good place to be adjusting that & with Juipter back in gis realm, there is simply, no time like the present 😉

  7. Hi Jaime, I have read my December horoscope for Pisces Decan 2 Born March 2 , 1966. I;m involved with an Association and we will soon have AGM do you see me being voting on again as Chair?

    December 7 to January 5 – The December 7 New Moon has a sinister influence. It amplifies the deceptive alignment mentioned above and could make it last up to the January 5 solar eclipse. Major themes of this new moon include anger, fear, deception, confusion, immorality and perversion. It may also cause irritation from women and a ruthless drive to gain power. The keys to avoiding loss and disappointment are honesty and integrity

  8. Hi Jamie – Truly amazing. I have a court case coming up in December 2018. The defendant is a woman with the moon in Pisces in the 8th house at 15 degrees. She stole a ton of money. In the millions. This has been going back and forth for 2 years and our lawyer thinks she is checkmated. With all the planets aspecting in malignant ways to her moon I am hopeful for a victory.

  9. If this conjuncts my bf’s 4th house… what could that bring? A move back? A shady move back lol?

  10. +65,000 sealed indictments set to be unsealed throughout 2019. several from Washington Dc have been unsealed and crimes against children are among the lengthy list of offences. The hammer WILL drop on these people. It’s already a done deal.

    • Not before time.
      And as we all know, this is the tip of a very dirty historical iceberg beginning to melt and the truth mediated.
      Some just redemption at last a possibility for the millions of children across the globe abused, effaced and denied for decades by state and church sponsored sexualised violence.

  11. Hi Jamie – I’m perplexed by what you wrote about Ras Algethi in Hercules, as I read elsewhere that this new moon is also conjunct fixed star Sarin at 15 degrees Sagittarius, which sounds a whole lot more beneficial in helping us reach our highest potential. If that is accurate, is it possible the ‘Good Advisor’ Star might help to counteract any detrimental effects of Ras Algethi and the Mars/Neptune square?

  12. Sarin, as you must know, is in Herculues’ chest, so not too far from Ras Algethi in his head. I couldn’t verify the positive characteristics ascribed to Sarin, but noticed that the constellation when badly aspected is associated with thuggery. One site did mention an association between Sarin and the noxious gas. Interestingly, both thugs and tear gas made news in Paris this new moon. Can you shed any further light on Sarin’s effects?

  13. Interesting. On 7 December, I had a former acquaintance unexpectedly call me, professing his love and adoration, then wanting to text me all night with flattery and flirtation. After not speaking to me since August, it was strange. People are subject to the gravitational pulls whether they believe in them or no.

  14. Spot on, My son had an incidence of threat on Facebook from a girl who tried to bribe him and threatened him to put a video of him online. This happened on Sunday , 2 days after the new moon. The video would be embarassing for him, nothing serious but still he felt uneasy. ( Facebook and his school admin were very helpful and we are hoping the case is resolved now)

  15. Update December 15: Pope Francis terminated Cardinal George Pell’s appointment of Treasurer at the Vatican on December 13. The day before, a court in Australia handed down its verdict in a sexual assault case against Pell.
