New Moon in Sagittarius & What that Means for Each Zodiac Sign

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

This new moon will usher in bright, optimistic, and pleasant energy just ahead of the holiday season that will have all 12 zodiac signs feeling lucky.

Every month or so, the moon slides between the Earth and the sun, making it look almost invisible from our point of view. This lunation is called a new moon, and in astrology, it offers the collective a chance to reset and recharge. The last new moon of 2023, however, is a particularly special one. The Dec. 12 Sagittarius new moon is all about restoring optimism and brings with it a major vibe shift.

In astrology, new moons offer the start of a new chapter and are great for introducing fresh ideas, beginning relationships, and seeing things from a different perspective. Since Sagittarius is a fire sign that champions bravery and honesty, this lunation is a beautiful time to aim for the things you want — just be sure not to make any rash decisions before weighing the potential consequences.

The new moon in Sagittarius inspires expansion and travel and stokes our thirst for learning. This lunation imposes a newfound sense of optimism and abundance — which is totally on brand for the archer, who's ruled by lucky Jupiter!

What Is the Spiritual Meaning of this New Moon?

Between Nov. 23 and Dec. 21 each year, the sun moves into the adventurous for sign Sagittarius, otherwise known as Sagittarius Season. New moons always happen in the same sign that the sun is in at that moment.

The Sagittarius new moon also presents the ideal time to do inner spiritual work, travel, and socialize. That's because new moons are a time of fresh starts, and the fire sign's brazen attitude inspires us to take risks and go after what we want.

The general vibe of this lucky Sagittarius new moon is amplified thanks to the archer's native planet, Jupiter, which will be hanging out in stubborn Taurus— and is finishing up its retrograde journey. It's been in a backspin since Sept. 4 and moves direct again Dec. 30. Jupiter in Taurus lends a fierce tenacity to this new moon. The new moon may inspire you to dream big, but Jupiter in Taurus is giving you the dedication you need to turn those dreams into a reality.

Read on to find out what the December new moon in Sagittarius means for your zodiac sign.

What Does the Frost Moon Mean for Every Zodiac Sign?

Aries (March 21–April 19)

The December new moon is giving you some much-needed energy to explore outside of your comfort zone and find inspiration. Expect changes in your relationships, [such as] making decisions to take the next step toward commitment. It could be a possible connection from your past or ending a relationship and closing out a chapter — one way or another, things will change!

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

This new moon may feel like a radical transformation, Taurus, so embrace the shifts. You may be feeling this new moon especially strongly, given that Jupiter is currently in your sign. Fresh starts for you, Taurus! The best thing for you to do during this new moon [is to get] back in touch with people, activities, and hobbies that help you feel carefree and free-spirited. You've earned it.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

Things are heating up in your partnership sector, Gemini. Let down your guard, and use the fire sign's feisty energy to take back power in your relationships. This new moon in your sister sign Sagittarius is the perfect time to feel your feelings, let it all out, and leave it behind. Try letting go of your anger with a fire cleansing ritual or even just with some new-moon journaling prompts to help clear your head.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

The bold energy of the new moon poses the perfect time to retreat back into your sanctuary, Cancer. It's a good time to introduce new habits and practices to your daily rituals. It's time to put your walls up and take some time for yourself, Cancer. And with Jupiter, the planet of your exaltation, ending its retrograde, you're feeling all of the feels.

Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)

Fellow fire sign Sagittarius is flooding you with inspiration, Leo. The new moon in Sagittarius will give you a chance to pause and embrace the fruits of your labor. Treat yourself to a special date night, or go out with friends to blow off some steam. You're feeling extra confident and carefree today — embrace it!

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22)

You've been keeping things under wraps lately, Virgo. The new moon is helping you get back to your roots as you continue to plan and plant seeds. Remember to lean on family or close friendships — you don't have to work alone! It may feel like you can finally catch your breath and assess things with a new eye. Embrace the slow moment, and give yourself time to feel good about things.

Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22)

The new moon is inspiring you to go down rabbit holes and sharpen some of your skills, Libra. Your directness and honesty will take you far right now, but be cautious, as Sagittarius energy often walks a fine line between being blunt and plain rude. Remember to speak from your heart. You've been hustling in your career specifically, Libra, but it seems that romance has snuck its way into your heart. Who says you can't have both? This lunation is reminding you that you're a badass who knows what you want, and with a little hard work and a lot of honesty about what you want, you can have it!

Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21)

What makes you feel safe, Scorpio? While huge shifts may have thrown you off balance, the vibrant energy of the new moon is giving you the confidence to say no when you want without feeling guilty about it. Don't let others' opinions of you influence what you know to be true about yourself.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)

Luck is on your side, Sagittarius — as per usual. This new moon in your native sign is inspiring you to take more risks and explore exciting places (literally and figuratively). Everything from flirtatious feelings to communication to job opportunities feels easier to access today, so shoot your shot at whatever has been catching your eye recently.

Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)

It's a great time for pause and introspection, Capricorn. The new moon is giving major revelations in hindsight, allowing you to expel unwanted energy and — ultimately — reminding you not to take life too seriously. You're always looking to improve yourself, and as a result, you take your loved ones' opinions of you to heart. Take this lunation to review all of the things you've accomplished this year and look ahead to where you want to go.

Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)

Leaning on your community and friendship circle has been helping you along your journey, Aquarius. But this new moon is reminding you of the importance of taking a break and slowing down. Between work, school, friends, love, and being popular (so weird, right?), you can feel your introverted senses kicking in. Don't fight it, and instead give yourself permission to go ghost for a moment.

Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)

The new moon is making you feel a little vulnerable, Pisces — but don't let that intimidate you. This is a great time to focus on areas that help you shine. The new moon in Sagittarius will light a creative spark in your heart for a past project or maybe even an old romantic flame.

When Is the Next New Moon?

The next new moon arrives on Jan. 11, 2024.

Channel bold, fiery Sagittarian energy as you respond to questions, requests and opportunities. Look outside the box and push your boundaries to try something new! If you have big, wild ideas and dreams, now is the perfect time to go after them. Stop hiding in the shadows and let your truth be known. You can also prepare for the upcoming new moon in Sagittarius Dec 12 by doing your own New Moon Ritual. At that time, consider booking an energy healing session focused on your wellness like my Remote Reiki Healing or schedule your Spiritual Bath session taking place in Virginia's Short Pump area all December, which includes reiki attunement and The Essence Experience.
