December's new Moon in Sagittarius falls on December 18, and, it feels like a very special sign of the times as Saturn moves out of Sagittarius and heads into Capricorn, the new Moon occurs right before the Winter Solstice.

May's Scorpio full Moon falls on Tuesday, May 17. It is a powerful full Moon and it has a surprising 'military' undertone, although that does not necessarily have to mean war and warfare and all that that theme brings up. The war, of course, can be within ourselves. This full Moon signals a move away from so much emphasis on Aries as several planets are now moving into Taurus. This suggests that the 'heat' may fade away and be replaced with more 'green' energy.
April's Libran full Moon is a total lunar eclipse. It is a 'blood moon' - sometimes used to describe a total lunar eclipse. When the Earth casts its shadow on a full Moon and eclipses it, the Moon may get a red glow.Total lunar eclipses are rare – only about one in three lunar eclipses are total.

February's Leo full Moon falls on February 18. The Sabian Symbol is Leo 30: An Unsealed Letter Has Vital And Confidential Information. ‘An Unsealed Letter’ is an image of words or thoughts, letters, notes or messages. They have been written, but as the ‘Letter’ is ‘Unsealed’, they have not been ‘Sealed’ in an envelope. ‘Vital and Confidential Information’ implies that important messages and information may need to be concealed from others, however, maybe things need to be out in the open? Being ‘Unsealed’ shows that it is possible that others want to be shown (or peek at) what’s been said or written.
