The new moon December 7, 2018, falls at 15º Sagittarius 2018. The new moon December 2018 is great for natural healing and grounding as it falls on fixed star Ras Algethi in the constellation of Hercules. Breeding and DNA are a theme here as the serpent’s symbol so closely resembles the double helix and the caduceus of Mercury is also highlighted. This decan contains some stars in the snake charmer of Ophiuchus. There is also a certain amount of deception too, however… The forked tongue of the snake makes itself felt here in the form of jealousy or spiteful rumours. Sabik is problematic generally, so the lunar energy makes it hard for us to clarify truth from fiction. What is certain though, is the ability to conjure up fanciful stories!
These tales are so dramatic and entertaining, that in the end, no one cares if they are actually factual or not. Maybe the fiction contains an element of truth that is eternal, like a myth. The Moon has some dignity in Sagittarius decan 2. One of its unique abilities in this position is to unify disparate elements together in order to fulfil a specific goal. Moon in Sagittarius 2 is rather like a blinkered horse. That way it won’t be tempted or distracted by the forbidden fruit of temptation.
Austin Coppock warns of Moon in Sagittarius 2’s “greater powers of concentration and focus.” as it also carries with it “the potential for monomania, and its gift of perseverance will fortify the fools quest as well as the sages errand.”  At the same this new Moon’s healing potential is best channelled into a single goal. Otherwise, the Moon’s power here can sour Sagittarius 3’s healing medicine, if it is allowed to run amok and not funnelled positively.
