New Moon December 2022 Astrology

The New Moon on Friday, December 23, 2022, is located at 01°32′ Capricorn. As well as aspects to Jupiter and asteroid Hygeia shown in the chart below, it aligns with fixed star Spiculum at 01°08′ Capricorn.


New Moon Meaning

Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.

So the New Moon December 2022 astrology is excellent 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 progress.

New Moon Aspect

New Moon square Jupiter is like a double-edged sword. Confidence, optimism and enthusiasm can lead to good fortune and success. But overconfidence and excess could bring failure and embarrassment. So the best way forward is to use self-control and moderation with your behavior and morals.

Selfishness, greed, overindulgence, arrogance and boastfulness must be avoided. Don’t take on too many projects, and don’t overdo things. Focus your energy on one or just a few projects, and be conservative with your finances. You can still have fun but don’t party too hard.

A Star

Fixed star Spiculum is associated with blindness and, if harshly aspected, gives a strong tendency towards depression and a rather morbid outlook religiously. It makes for all manner of problems, psychological and physical, eyesight included. There is often that feeling of negative ‘fear of God.’ [1]

An Asteroid

Asteroid Hygeia is associated with health, hygiene, tradition and natural medicine, doctors and healers, disease, illness, toxins, fear of poison, fear of doctors, fear of medical results, hypochondria, hesitation to get checkups, operations, misdiagnosis, drug abuse, diet, and worry about the health of family and friends.

New Moon December 2022 Meaning

The December 23 New Moon square Jupiter represents a test of character and faith. Greed and excess could result in reduced wealth and disappointment. There could be falls on stock markets.

The influence of the December 23 New Moon lasts four weeks up to the January 21 New Moon. The best time for starting new projects is during the two-week waxing moon phase, from December 23 to the January 6 Full Moon.

  1. Once again Jamie your methods elicited a resonance not found elsewhere. You read my natal chart in August, I have this lingering surgical repair (abdominal wall) from a botched suturing/closing attempt, after my own poisoning/sepsis journey, I KNOW was caused by a hasty procedure and I’ll just leave it at that. Yet the defect remains untreated and must be repaired. Only one surgeon has been willing to help, but she has been thwarted at every turn. All along I believe I was spared from misfortune this last year when the scheduled surgeries, were either delayed, postponed, rescheduled by me once (out of fear) and the final time – the last surgeon outright cancelled for lack of confidence in his own ability! (August 17th for Sept 6th surgery date). Though I did just recently find a surgeon quite serendipitously. A night or two before my consult with him, my mother had a dream about a priest coming to her in a gleaming white room with only pictures of saints on the walls, he was smiling and nodding in an approving manner, my mother said she assumed it was about the saints on the walls as he didn’t speak in the dream. Two days later (my mom went with me) we were both immediately stunned as we walked into the new surgeon’s office – it was gleaming white, floor to ceiling white marble floors and counters, white leather furniture. We didn’t even need to say anything to each other, it was that obvious.

    Checking my natal, Hygeia is 8º13 Aries conjunct my 10º25 Sun 10º21 Eris & 11º23 Mercury 🫣 all of them inconjunct my 9º24 Virgo Ascendant with Pluto standing like a gatekeeper, at 10º08 Virgo.🥺 And my 7º00 Cancer Moon square all of those? And Jupiter? My natal is 29º13 Pisces! I can’t.😢 And now this New Moon…I’m scheduled to meet with this surgeon again on12/30 – right after Mercury goes retrograde 🤦🏻‍♀️
    There’s also my recent transit reading on file, I don’t know how to attach files or links, or I would for your convenience. I am struggling trying not to control anything. Just letting things continue to “be”. I can’t help but want to ask for some guidance considering the proximity of all these personal planets and asteroids and this NM and my certainty a scheduling question is going to arise. If you have any time to look at my recent readings for reference I would be so appreciative. My apologies if this is TMI in this forum…I tried to keep it succinct, despite being a Chatty Cathy, lol 🤭

  3. Hi Jamie,

    you wrote:

    Well, I think the real deadline is 28 December because of Mercury.

    • If you read the weekly horoscope, you know it.;)

      Anyway, I hope, Jamie’s health and energy would improve more and would write an article about “this triple impact” as I suggested him before as it usually happens few times every year.

      • Hi Rob. I am fit and healthy. I would normally write about Mercury retrograde but am on a family holiday in a small village in the Philippines. Electricity comes and goes. Back home on January 1.

        Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

        • Hi Jamie,

          That is the best news for me you are healthy!

          Well, as have lots of negative impacts in my natal it looks there is a permanent problem – especially misunderstanding – with my communication.

          I suggested you before some points you could get more money and one of them was the full effects of retrograde phases of planets especially Mercury and Venus.
          If you write a “sample article” saying few sentences about the whole process – I mean shadow starts, St-r, St-d and oversteps – and you write some sentences about finally how important is to see the impacts of natal and you would do it for cheaper price you could get money for these few times a year.

          And you could just modify the “sample article” saying the actual range and time period of that impacts.

          Well, maybe was not a good idea for you or I just wrote it badly you did not get my point as this is my usually problem people usually misunderstand me. That is why I have to keep my mouth closed as I have not been able to find a solution for my biggest challenge yet.

          I wish you all the best as I am not sure the next year will bring happiness for most people but I strongly try to be positive.


            • Sorry, it looks I pushed a wrong button or something because I wrote this yesterday but it put to somewhere else:

              Or maybe would be better to read your reply via email to get to know why it is important?

            • I did it again or just the website put that reply to a new comment?

  4. Hi Jamie, I just want to say thank you for all your great information this year. You are truly inspiring! Now, this is the year I finally get my birth chart done by you! Amen! : )
    Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas, and wonderful holiday season…
    With Love, Tamara

  5. Something is strange though. This new moon looks like it suits the 100% (instead of zero) new covid policy of China. However, they started this weeks ago. During the “irritation” full moon. Doesn’t add up. But I’m sure this new moon has to do with health issues.

  6. “Fixed star Spiculum is associated with blindness.” I have Thyroid Eye Disease (It’s reverse Graves Disease, and I have had many surgeries, etc.) Two years ago i got OLD and needed bi focals. I finally went to the eye doctor and the RX was going to expire on the 4th of Jan. ON the 23rd I bought two pairs of glasses and got a discount and another free pair because the girl was digging my vibes or she was just cool. How random. 7500 USD worth of glasses (mainly for the special lenses, the frames were 150+225) it ended up only costing (drum roll please), 1400 USD!!! I am taking care of my elderly mother and don’t have alot of money to spend on “luxuries”. WOW! Spiculum was on my side that day! (or not – you can look at it either way!) Thanks Jamie, hope you and all of your girls had a wonderful Christmas/Holiday !! Julie in Chicago
