The New Moon, which is also a Solar Eclipse takes place on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at 1:42 a.m. CST in 12° Sagittarius. This is lively energy that imbues us with a sense of adventure. If weather permits, going out into nature can be uplifting. We tend to enjoy reading books or seeing movies describing other's adventures. Jupiter ruled Sagittarius gives an attunement to religion and philosophy which matches well with the holiday season.
A solar eclipse symbolizes a change in your life for the year ahead. This can be on the solar (external) level and the lunar (internal) level. It can worthwhile to think about something you would like to plant a seed for and create an affirmation for it. If you don't have a specific agenda try this affirmation "I am open and receptive to all the good and abundance in the universe" .
If you're an astrology student and want to be more specific, you can look at your own natal chart and see what house the eclipse falls in. This will show what life area the change will occur in.
If you are a student of yoga, use the alternate breathing pranayama technique (nadi shodana) to balance the solar and lunar energies at this eclipse time.
Right now we are in a Neptune station direct period (December 1, 20° Pisces). Under Neptune's influence this week, we are likely to be more forgetful (and not as likely to catch typos - so please forgive any you find here). Not a good time for major decisions because there may be hidden information. Good for meditation, music appreciation and enjoying the arts.
