The Sagittarius New moon falls on December 18, peaking at 1:30 AM, EST. This gives us one last blast of Sagittarius energy before Saturn enters Capricorn minutes before midnight, December 19, changing many things in a major way.
Sagittarius rules the 9th house of world view, education and foreign matters, and is the most expansive of signs. But, this Moon conjuncts Saturn on its last day in the sign of Sagittarius, and Moon-Saturn transits are connected with responsibilities and obligations, and in some cases endings. You may do some serious thinking about many matters in your life.
Saturn is finishing up its two and a half year transit through the sign Sagittarius. We have seen many changes in the world as Saturn moved through its 9th house connected sign.
This is a good time to focus and meditate on the meaning of Saturn's transit through your chart since it first entered the sign December, 2014. What has changed, and where are you headed now? Saturn cycles last about two and a half to three years and our focus is typically going to be the house Saturn is transiting in our personal chart.
If you have planets in mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Pisces, Sagittarius) you have encountered your share of obstacles during the past three years that you should be overcoming by now. If you have planets in Fire signs (Aries, Leo) Saturn has been your friend, building structure and stability in some way. If you are a Sagittarius, (also a Fire sign) many things have changed in your life, as it does when Saturn enters your sign, and your life may have totally changed, or you may have re-created yourself in some way.
Either way, this is Saturn's last dance in Sagittarius for nearly 30 years.
As Saturn enters Capricorn we will see many changes in the world and our own personal lives. Capricorn is far different from Sagittarius and focused on real results, security and building bridges to our future. The first new moon in Capricorn will occur January 17, 2018.
