Welcome to my video and blog about the energies of the New Moon of December 23rd 2022.
As usual I give a detailed presentation of the energies and then, as with all my Lunation videos and blogs:
And please do see the second video. This is a separate video where I suggest the basis of a vision journey to meet these energies and work with them for the betterment of our life.
In this video and blog I delve deeply into the energies of this New Moon of 23.12.22.
I define ELEVEN key elements of awareness to bring to this New Moon – see below.

OK, so now to turn to this New Moon:
Here is the video for this Blog Post:
Note that Moon and Sun join at 7 deg Sagittarius in the Vedic Sidereal Zodiac (1 deg Western Capricorn Tropical zodiac).
You can see the Western and Vedic charts for this New Moon on my December 22 monthly page on my Starwheel Astrology website: https://starwheelastrology.com/december-2022/
This New Moon is at 10.17 am here in Ireland, 9.16 pm in Sydney, 5.16 in New York and 2.16 in Los Angeles.
There are a number of powerful energies to this New Moon, which it’s really helpful to know about.
I set out the eleven key energies as follows:
Working with Lunations: The first central point we need to remember and connect with and act upon is that like any New Moon, it is the start of a 28 day journey to the next New Moon that’s on 21.1.2023. and like any New Moon this is a time for pause and going inward and developing vision and intention so as to get the maximum benefit in our life and our awareness and our life path as we go forward to the Full Moon on 6.1.2023 and then the next New Moon on 21.1.23.
New Moon in Sagittarius: The second essential point: With this New Moon being in Sagittarius, the energy we find ourself in, and the energy being offered to us is Jupitarian. This is because Jupiter rules Sagittarius. It is an energy of blessing and enlargement and sense of purpose and more divine realizations.
The third important point is to note which House in your Vedic Chart this New Moon in Sagittarius is in. There’s a handy page on my Starwheel Astrology website which shows the life areas covered by each House: https://starwheelastrology.com/houses-interpretation/ .
This will further clarify how this New Moon will affect you.
So, for example if Sagittarius is your 6th House in your Vedic birth chart, this will unlock such life areas as: enemies, debts, health and disease, work and service, foreigners, pets, enemies, effort, resistance to illness, immune system. Our capacity to do hard labor – overcome physical obstacles / enemies.
New Moon square Jupiter: Indeed the fourth important point to note is that this New Moon is actually square Jupiter. Jupiter is super-powerful now transiting his other sign that he rules: Vedic Pisces (6 deg).
Positively this will give us even more blessing and enlargement and sense of purpose and more divine realizations.
But beware: us humans can mis-manage Divine Jupiter’s Energies. We can mis-manage these great energies to over-do things, to become ‘Ra! Ra! Ra!’ glib over-expansionists, to expand more than we can properly manage the details of. Glib. Even preposterous!
Mula Nakshatra and Niritti: The fifth essential point to be aware of is that this New Moon at 7 deg Sagittarius in the Vedic Sidereal Zodiac is in Mula Nakshatra. Mula Nakshatra is ruled over by Niritti, the Goddess of Death and Destruction. She opens our eyes to what must DIE now in our scripts and our awareness patterns and our life-path. And we have to find the right new pathway forward.
Saturn is still making us tie up loose ends – the sixth essential point is that Saturn, Lord of Karma is still making us tie up loose ends and finish unfinished business. He can feel even remorseless in the way he does this for our own good.
Note that Saturn actually entered Aquarius, but only very briefly for two and a half months, from 29.4.2022 to 12.7.2022, when he reached 1 deg Aquarius on 4th June.
But then Saturn turned Retrograde on 15.6.22, returning to Capricorn on 12.7.2022.
Saturn continued to retrograde as far as 24 Capricorn, turning to go Direct again on 23.10.22, since which date he has been moving forwards again to make a second entry into Aquarius on 17.1.2023.
So Saturn will not ‘let us off the hook’ for tying up our loose ends and completing unfinished matters until he resumes his pre-retrogradation position of 1 deg 5 mins Aquarius on 18.1.2023. after that date we are finally free to forge ahead on our new needed projects unfettered by past uncompleted matters.
Our Shadow Self – Lilith: The seventh essential point: Lilith is transiting opposition Pluto in the Heavens now. The whole issue of power and shadow self and what is buried in our shadow is raised to the fore now.
So, don’t just look at your conscious aware patterns now. Delve into your shadow as well at this time. So much gets pushed into our shadow. We might not even consciously know it is there, but it actually drives us and makes us do things and think things and say things. In the absence of awareness of what’s in our shadow we can even develop a completely false definition of who we are.
And remember, it is often our power that gets buried into our shadow. This is because our childhood family could not allow us to have it. Our parenting, our siblings, our religious upbringing or our societal patterns could not allow our Power to be known about or expressed.
And it is relevant and useful to say that also our Wild Side can get buried in our Shadow Self. And Niritti’s energy calls us to acknowledge our Wild Side, to raise it to the light, and to find that it frees us as long as we bring spiritual awareness and handling to it now.
The graveyard Goddess Niritti calls us to die to our limited self at the time of this expansionary New Moon and express freely our buried beauty and power.
Gandanta: The eighth essential point to realize is that this New Moon is a Moon that has just emerged from a Gandanta Zone. Mula Nakshatra and the sign Sagittarius start in one of the three Gandanta Zones of Vedic Astrology. These are the transition points from where Water sign finally dissolves into the Void across which is the first flicker of the Fire of the next sign: a Fire sign. Vedic Scorpio transitions to Vedic Sagittarius.
Gandanta Zones are zones where we have the chance to experience and see that this World we live in, Maha Maya – it is an illusion. It’s very important to be here for a lifetime because here we can burn our negative karmas from Past Life and we can maximize our positive Karmas that we came in with too. But it is an illusion. Its insubstantiality can open us to perception of the divine, of the God realm.
In this place of insubstantiality that is a Gandanta Zone, we can let go of our shackles of inappropriate perceptions and patterns and embrace a whole new spiritual persona, a whole new life journey.
Gandanta Zones are a couple of degrees either side of the zero point where water gives way to fire. This New Moon is at 7 deg Sagittarius. The moon has only just passed through the Gandanta Zone when this New Moon happens. There we will have the opportunity to collect realizations that a Gandanta offers each one of us.
My ninth point is about Chiron. As a special feature it would be very helpful and important for you to note how this New Moon affects your natal Chiron. This is because Chiron is actually square the Full Moon axis in the next Full Moon of 6.1.23.
So the point I am making is that the two more recently discovered indicators of shadow and woundedness are both to be activated in our consciousness and in our life during the Lunation from the New Moon of 23.12.22.
Galactic Center: The tenth essential point: The seventh essential point to be aware of is that at the start of Vedic Sagittarius and also Mula Nakshatra is also Galactic Centre. Galactic centre spans 3 deg to 4 deg Vedic Sagittarius (27 deg Western Sagittarius). Galactic Centre is an energy-supreme mass of 4,000,000 Suns amassed in a Black Hole. The energy it transmits is massive indeed. The moon passed through Galactic Centre only 4 hours before this New Moon. The Sun passed through galactic Centre only three days before this New Moon.
What realizations have come at you?
Have you been open to them?
What energies did you feel?
How will you express them going forward?
Will they change you?
At the time of this New Moon, it will be so good to stand back, maybe do a bit of vision work. See more clearly what has been happening to your recently. Evaluate how you should handle it: what attitude you should cultivate in the face of it.
And then go forward.
What is calling to you to be more aware of?
Stop and think.
See what strategy and attitude might it be useful to bring in now.
Do not remain Stuck!!!!!!!
The Winter Solstice: The eleventh essential point: this New Moon is just two days from the exact moment of the Winter Solstice. We are still in the Winter Solstice. The Winter Solstice is the Death of the Old Sun and the Birth of the New Sun. I am speaking to your from the West of Ireland which is full of Neolithic court tombs of the First Farmers who came here from Anatolia and surrounding area, from c.4000 to 2,500 BC, replacing the much earlier Hunter Gatherers who arrived here after the melting fo the Ice Age. And so many of the ancient monuments are orientated to winter solstice. Humans participated in the rebirth of the Sun. it was crucial for them to develop magical and astronomical and ritual connection and awareness to the seasons of the Sun so as to succeed in planting growing and harvesting the new crops they brought to Ireland. I certainly experience the days around Winter Solstice as a Dead Time. You can’t force it. Experience it. Develop awareness from it. Arise from it. In ancient Ireland the Winter Solstice was the Birth of the Mabon: The new Young God.
