Early on the 4th of December, there is a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse at 12 degrees Sagittarius, the sign associated with the bigger picture.

A Solar Eclipse occurs when the New Moon happens within 15 degrees of the Lunar Nodes, and it is related to new beginnings.  

This is a South Node Eclipse, which is connected with releasing patterns from the past to allow new energy in. 

Eclipse season

It is the last of Sagittarius/Gemini Eclipse season, closing the cycle that started in May 2020. It is the end of a chapter before a new one begins.

What has been fully integrated into your life that started in May 2020?

Mercury, the planet of the mind, is conjunct (together) the New Moon helping to reframe your mind and update your belief system (Sagittarius), so you can make this new reality work. 

Connect to your intuition

Neptune, also active (squaring) the New Moon, will help you connect with your intuition.

  • What is your inner wisdom telling you?
  • How do you envision your future?

Black Moon Lilith, the dark feminine, opposing the New Moon, will ask you:

  • What part of you has been repressed and wants to come out? 

Expect some clarity and powerful insights, and thanks to a sextile with Saturn, you’ll reap the rewards if you have done the work. 


Solar Eclipses are potent portals for attracting what you want, so make sure you focus on what you want for your life and the world when setting intentions.

New Moon ceremonies to set intentions is an ancient practice. When we consciously write down what we want, we co-create with the Universe. And in the process, we dissolve our inner resistance. It is the time of the New Moon, and the following 8-12h AFTER are the most potent hours to set intentions. Up to 3 days is ok.
