Sagittarius New Moon, Winter Solstice

The New Moon will be on Sunday, Dec 21, @ 6 deg Sagittarius. This begins the Hindu lunar month Margasiras, named for the nakshatra of the Full Moon, Mrigrashira, which will be on January 4. Except that this year, the Full Moon will fall in Purnavasu nakshatra. Therefore the energy of the month has more of the nature of Purnavasu, a lunar sign that is considered auspicious for "re-doing" or "starting over." In other words, this lunar month is favorable for making a second attempt on something.
December 21 is the Winter Solstice. This is the day that the Sun appears to stop its travel towards the South, and begins to return to the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore the shortest day and longest night of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere). Traditionally a day of prayers & ceremonies, but not considered a good time to begin anything new, due to the Sun being "in between" two phases of its energy pattern.
