December 2, 2022 Edition
Hello! Welcome to our first Moon Scope for the month of December.
Tonight’s Moon will be a waxing gibbous with 73% illumination. That means we’re in the middle of a phase that began on November 23rd when the Moon was in Scorpio. The interesting thing about 11/23 is not only was the Moon new, but the Sun entered the first of its seven day transit through Scorpio.
That of course, it the astronomy of the situation. So here we are on December 2nd, astrologically the Sun is in Sagittarius, and Ophiuchus astronomically. This is a sacred time.
Tonight’s Moon will be in the astrological sign Aries, and at this precise moment, the Moon is in Aries in the 11th House.
The Ram is the masculine sign of cardinal fire. It’s energetic, exciting, impulsive, and open to new experiences. It’s assertive and sexual, and although most people associate Aries with war because it’s ruled by Mars, the energy can manifest in other ways.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, it’s a me first sign-it’s all about the self. With the Moon draped in the various shades of red-fire and excitement, the subconscious receives a boost concerning hidden thoughts and feelings pertaining to the self.
What about you? What about me?
If you’ve been putting off, ignoring, or suppressing anything pertaining to you and your needs on a personal level, get ready for a change, or should I say, those around you should get ready. Beginning tonight and continuing probably until the night of the full moon on the 5th, your wants and needs will be the focus.
I know single mothers who are parenting children, and this is the perfect time for them to start thinking about boundaries and personal space. We all need private time, personal space, and an opportunity to take a short break to recoup.
Creating boundaries and establishing personal space grants us personal time, and it’s through that time we address our needs. Take a stand, and put your foot down. Mom needs her time too! Dad needs his time!
For those who are in a relationship, it’s a good time to tell your partner what you’re looking for or what you’re hoping to get out of your union. Relationships should be 50/50. Maybe it’s time to end the relationship all together. Perhaps, things aren’t working out the way you expected-maybe you’d be better off alone or with someone else.
Our careers will be another area affecting by this energy. Most of us feel like we’re overworked and underpaid. When it comes to work specifically, this is one area where we often suppress our needs because we don’t want to make waves. It seems like employers are getting rid of people for every little reason-almost to the point where people are afraid to speak up and ask for what they’re owed or entitled to.
If this is you, speak up. The energy favors you at this time. Talk to your boss about the workload, or the compensation you feel is adequate for what you’re doing. My advice for those who are having these issues at work is to take a moment this weekend. Write down your skills, abilities, certifications, licenses, special training, work experience, etc. Take a look at all that and decide what you’re worth. Draw a line for yourself. Decide what you want to do, and know your worth. It’s best to end certain issues so they don’t keep popping up.
Courage is the Rams best quality. And remember, fire signs are emotional. You could spend this time arguing about what you want, but this emotional energy should be harness and used for taking action. Either way, you will speak up and you will take whatever steps are necessary. The New Year is coming up. It’s the perfect time to think about those resolutions!

I mentioned before, currently, the Moon is in Aries and in the 11th House. The 11th House is about friendships, partnerships and organizations connected to the work you do, and the future. Keep that in mind. It’s about you, and your future.
