The December 18, 2017 Lunar Cycle

A Synopsis of this Lunar Month

New Moon Sidereal Astrology Chart

New Moon - Sidereal Fagan-Bradley
Subtract 0° 16' for the Galactic Equatorial Ayanamsa

This December 18, 2017 New Moon occurs just into sidereal Sagittarius. It conjoins Ixion and the Centaur Pholus. The Solstice immediately follows on December 21, with the Sun conjoining Pholus, Saturn and Quaoar on the Gate of God of Earth's Precessional Cross (GEN). The Solstice chart sets the theme for the upcoming solar year. This entire stellium of planets in Sagittarius disposits its energetic to the mobilizing and expansive forces of Jupiter in Libra, which creates a T-square to the Lunar Nodes. This T-square remains in effect throughout most of this lunar cycle. Jupiter also conjoins Vesta, and Ceres conjoins the North Lunar Node. Jupiter and Vesta conjoin Zubenelgenubi, the southern claw of the Scorpion, which also marks Saturn's exalted location in the ecliptic. Due to this placement, Jupiter, in turn, disposits its forces right back to Saturn in Sagittarius—creating what is called a mutual reception. All of this brings tremendous emphasis to Jupiter and Saturn, the two most massive planets in our star system.

2020 Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto

See the Video: 2020 Jupiter, Saturn & Pluto.

Jupiter and Saturn are in the completion phase of their 20-year synodic cycle that began in 2000. Jupiter and Saturn make their climatic arrival to conjoin with Pluto in late sidereal Sagittarius and under the Auspices of Aquila the Eagle in 2020. Jupiter-Saturn cycles are one of the most powerful and influential in our solar system dynamics. Jupiter's magnetic field creates a huge, intense and complex magnetosphere that is larger than the diameter of the Sun and envelops the orbit of Saturn. The cycles of these two massive planets synchronize and breathe with the solar cycles.

New Moon Star Chart

Jupiter imparts a warming, expansive and mobilizing force. Saturn imparts a cooling, contracting and solidifying force. Jupiter is ligamentous and muscular while Saturn is calciferous and structural. Jupiter is inclusive and embracing while Saturn is exclusive and segregating. Saturn forces us to confront our fears and Jupiter impels us to claim our wisdom. Saturn demonstrates and validates by concretizing in form that which Jupiter expands to embrace. Jupiter expounds upon and mobilizes what Saturn consolidates and solidifies. Jupiter tends to magnify the limitations Saturn imposes and stimulates the expansion of new growth upon the established structures Saturn solidifies. In so doing, these 20-year cycles create the rhythmic breath of societal development.

The final phase of the Jupiter-Saturn cycle (through 2020) is a time to relinquish antiquated societal structures and self-imposed limitations we have crystallized in our consciousness, to make fluid what was calcified in preparation for a new societal expression to emerge in the following decade.

Sagittarius, the Zen Archer is the spiritual warrior and sanguine inspirationalist, whose arrow points toward Galactic Center. On a personal level, the stars of Sagittarius inspire demonstrable action to live a deeper inner truth, or a more universal truth, and to express that truth through an undaunted Zen focus to hit the target of our highest ideals and dreams, ultimately to achieve a greater unified awareness. The Zen Archer is focused upon long-term goals, that is, the goals of the durative soul rather than short-term trivial or transitory pursuits.

1988 Saturn-Uranus Synod.

Saturn's last entry into sidereal Sagittarius occurred in late 1987, along with Uranus. The two planets conjoined in early Sagittarius throughout 1988. Their synod occurred on June 9, 1988 conjoining the Gate of God in Sagittarius, initiating their current 45-year synodic cycle, which will complete in 2032 in early Gemini, approaching the Gate of Man. See Saturn-Uranus 1988.

Saturn's entry into the star field of the Zen Archer brings our attention to our higher ideals and to our responsibility to establish societal structures that support a greater universal truth, a unified cosmic awareness and evolutionary freedom. At the same time, established bureaucracies and fear-based followers will attempt to control the pursuit for such greater freedom and awareness. Yet this very tension impels us to evolve our bureaucracies and societal structures to embody the exalted vision the Zen Archer stands for. Saturn's passage through the star field of the Zen Archer continues through the completion of the Jupiter-Saturn cycle in 2020.

The Saturn-Solstice Sun conjunction marks the midpoint of vision and realization of the current 378-day Saturn synodic cycle, which began in the midst of Saturn's previous retrograde in June of 2017. This was a compounded cycle with Ixion engaging over the Sting of the Scorpion. The Saturn and Ixion synodic cycles (those occurring with Earth) are 378 days and 366 days respectively. Thus, these cycles continue well into 2018. See the Mars opposite Saturn-Ixion section presented in the May 25, 2017 Lunar Planner. Thus, this lunar cycle, in part, brings sobering realization to antiquated societal limitations and those we impose upon our own lives, and to our need to relinquish such limitations for the manifestation of our higher aspirations.

Excerpt from the May 25 Lunar Planner

2017 Double-Yod

Saturn forces us to confront our fears, is of karmic retribution, and with Ixion, will manifest as tyrannical figureheads and totalitarian bureaucracies. Sedna exemplifies the exiled feminine principle and associated issues of fear to reemerge as a fully empowered force in the world. It is exactly this fear that the personification of Saturn-Ixion quincunx to Sedna (conjoining Algol) challenges us to confront. This is one facet of the dramatization occurring upon the global stage supporting this energetic's resolution, and our personal and societal growth. It is also one leg of the Yod to Sedna, with the second formed by the Haumea-Sedna quincunx, impelling us to recreate our self-expression in ways that support the reemergence and manifestation of the feminine principle in a new-world paradigm.

Note: Although Saturn has now moved from its conjunction with Ixion, the Ixion-Sedna inconjunct (quincunx), which began in 2016, will remain active throughout 2020. See The Annual Graphic Ephemerides.

The Jupiter-Lunar Nodes T-square, with Jupiter and Vesta conjoining Zubenelgenubi, and Ceres conjoining the North Lunar Node under the auspices of Dubhe and Merak of the Great Bear, brings the answer to Saturn's higher challenge—all explored in more detail in this month's Lunar Planner.

The Solstice

The Sun moves away from Ixion, aligning with Saturn on the solstice to within a fraction of a degree and nesting between Pholus and Quaoar—a part of the energetic for the new year to unfold. This brings emphasis to transformative catalytic agents, to the expression of unique expertise, and to our need to align ourselves with the natural forces governing life rather than with those attempting dictatorial reign. It impels us to create a harmonious revolution through our resonance with what is real, with universal truths and natural order.

There are two dynamics at play. It would be foolhardy to look through rose-colored glasses for the year ahead, yet this does not at all mean to abandon optimism for a bright future. Stormy and warring it may be, yet light is brighter than ever to shine. Remember Jupiter-Vesta T-Square, as that light is within to mobilize and expand into the world, to keep the flame within alive. The issue is holding undaunted vision upon our higher ideals and universal awareness, and acting from this awareness and expressing our unique talents and expertise, whatever they may be, to become the very catalyst that makes dreams real.

December 2017 Solstice Sun and the Gate of God in Sagittarius.

The Solstice Sun currently occurs 00° 16' west of the Gate of God due to the precession of the vernal axis of Earth's Precessional Cross. The solstice occurred exactly on the Gate of God in 1998, during the time of the exact erect cross.

The vernal axis of the Precessional Cross pecesses at a rate of about 1° per 72 years, and thus so too does the location of the solstices and equinoxes with respect to the galactic equatorial axis (Gate of God/Gate of Man) and the stars. See the Timing section on Earth's Precessional Cross home page, and the Sidereal and Tropical zodiacs section on the Sidereal Astrology web page to learn more about this.

Mercury completes its retrograde on the Crescent Moon, engaging the outward expression of changes we have made in our thinking and in the logistical strategies we may have evolved during Mercury's retrograde. The Crescent Moon occurs on December 22 in Capricorn conjoining the South Lunar Node and activating the Jupiter-Vesta / Ceres-North Node T-Square. Occurring in Mercury's direct station, this Crescent Moon may inspire the formalization and mobilization of ideas, plans or negotiations we have been considering over the past few weeks during Mercury's retrograde.

Saturn and Quaoar begin a new 33.5-year synodic cycle and Venus and Saturn begin a new 230-day synodic cycle on the Gibbous Moon, both conjoining the Gate of God in early Sagittarius.

The Full Moon occurs on January 2 UT (Jan 1 MST) in mid-sidereal Gemini. This is another Supermoon. Be sure to watch it rise on the eastern horizon as the Sun sets. See Supermoons & Lunar Perigees

Uranus completes its retrograde several hours after the Full Moon, on January 2, also conjoining Eris and Pallas, and also aspecting the Haumea-Ixion-Sedna Yod and the Chiron-Sedna-Haumea Yod. This marks a primary turning in our longer-term evolutionary currents as Uranus completes its catalytic role with the long-standing Eris-Haumea opposition. This is Uranus' last opposition to Haumea. The Haumea-Eris opposition is a longer-term event, which started in late 2014 and continues through late 2018. Uranus also now makes full entry into sidereal Aries. The passage of Uranus through Aries will continue through 2025. Uranus, over the immediate couple of years, conjoins the stars forming the upright fish of Pisces, which straddle the Aries cusp. They impel personal accomplishment and achievement, to rise from our past. In this light, we may see more innovative progressive breakthroughs and new discoveries in society and in technology, as well as providing catalyst for greater personal freedom. This may also impel greater radical behavior amongst the human populous to claim personal independence from the restrictions of the past. This Uranus station externalizes our current Earth-Uranus synodic cycle, which began on the October 19, 2017 New Moon, presented in the October 19, 2017 Lunar Planner.

Several events occur in the latter part of the lunar cycle stimulating an accelerating intensity. Mars conjoins Jupiter just after the Disseminating Moon of January 5, creating another catalytic stimulus. The Sun, Venus and Pluto conjoin just after the Last Quarter Moon of January 8 as Pluto approaches its south node under the auspices of Lyra and conjoining the potent and high rotational velocity stars forming the tail of Aquila the Eagle. Pluto makes passage across its south node throughout 2018—all explored in detail in this month's Lunar Planner.

About Lunar Cycles

You need not know a thing about astrology to live in attunement to the natural Lunar Cycles. The progressing lunar cycles and their changing eight lunar phases is a natural time piece of spiraling creative expression. Participating and acting in time with the changing lunar phases can enhance your creative process, synchronize your mind and body, teach you how to breathe with your emotions, to live in the power of the present, and help you to become more productive and follow through with your plans and ideals. Most of all, it can drastically reduce stress that is so prominent when living in our modern-day mechanized and synthetic world that is out of touch with our natural biological rhythms. Simply download the Lunar Planner Introduction and each month's Lunar Calendar to learn how. It is free, simple and fun.

Phases of the Lunar Cycle

The Lunar Calendar

There are two parts to the Monthly Lunar Calendar:

1) The Lunar Calendar Introduction - The Lunar Cycle & Lunar Phases

This FREE printable document provides simple and empowering instructions on how to live in attunement to the natural lunar phases. It includes a detailed explanation of the characteristics of each lunar phase, how one lunar phase shifts to another, creating an experiential spiral of personal growth.

The Lunar Planner Introduction is not something to just read, it is an experiential and participatory tool that can empower you to live in harmony and balance with your emotional and physical experience. To gain full benefit from the Lunar Planner, use it along with each month's lunar calendar on a daily basis: write down your experiences and feelings in each month's calendar, especially before and after each lunar phase shift. Observe and and take note of your experiences and feelings on a daily basis in the context of the lunar phase characteristics as presented in this Introduction. Doing so quickly reveals how your life experience, inner feelings, and realizations are colored by lunar phases and their transitions. As you observe the synchronicity between your life experience, inner feelings, and the changing lunar phases, you can then learn to consciously live attuned to the natural spiral of growth rather than just observe it, not merely scheduling your activities within the lunar spiral of growth, but more importantly, embracing your life experience in its fullness, living in the present and thus gaining greater self-empowerment through the inner growth your life experience has to offer.

Lunar Planner Introduction is a free PDF.

The Introduction is a 9 page printable PDF file available to view or download (~600 kb).

2) The Monthly Lunar Calendar

The two page Lunar Calendar is posted a few days before each NEW MOON. The Lunar Calendar reveals the dates and times of each lunar phase shifts and their changing characteristics. You can use the lunar calendar as a daily planner as well as a journal to record your experiences and feelings as the changing lunar phase occur.

Writing your experiences in the Lunar Calendar and correlating them with the changing lunar phases is the best way to learn how the lunar cycles and their changes phases work at an experiential level. Working with the Lunar Planner Introduction along with each month's lunar calendar can help you to become consciously aware of the lunar rhythm in your life and how to participate with it in empowerment. The Lunar Calendar goes hand-in-hand with the above Lunar Planner Introductory pdf file.

The Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary

Planetary cycles create the evolutionary currents of growth occurring within ourselves and our lives. To know what these cycles of life are asking of us is to consciously participate in life from a place of personal empowerment and inner peace. In this awareness and attunement, we can walk the path leading to our highest fulfillment—physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The "Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary," also made available just before each New Moon, articulates the opportunity for growth in consciousness each lunar month offers and how each month's lunar theme unfolds throughout the changing phases of the Lunar Calendar. I explore the theme of each lunar month and its unfoldment in our lives with "astronomical star-level astrology" which I have evolved over decades. This is not sign-based astrology reducing the heavens to twelve archetypes, but is experientially-based astrology, much like one would naturally learn by living and sleeping under the starry heavens. I explore planetary alignments with all of the individual stars and constellations in the entire celestial sphere, along with the myriad of interweaving planetary cycles, their themes and where we are in those cycles. Looking at the astrology of individual stars rather than that of mere astrological signs (whether tropical or sidereal signs), is like adjusting an out of focus camera lens into crystal clarity. Each lunar cycle nesting within the longer-term planetary cycles, weaves a story line of our evolutionary unfoldment and spiritual awakening.

The monthly Lunar Planner Commentary is based in star level, Sidereal Astrology and Synodic Astrology with unique and original Galactic Star Lore—the mythology (picture language) of the Greater Heavens.

The Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary is available for a small subscription fee, merely the price of one good Cappuccino per month. New subscribers have a five-day trial period to explore the current Monthly Lunar Planner before committing to the 6-month subscription.

Although each lunar month's astrological commentary reveals the dynamics of the unfolding lunar theme and provides an embracing context to our experience, it is adjunct material. It is not necessary to read the monthly astrology in order to learn to live in attunement to the lunar cycles, as offered in the above free Lunar Planner Introduction and by using each month's free Lunar Calendar. The monthly Lunar Planner Commentary is also a wonderful educational tool for astrologers wishing to learn more about astronomy, synodic cycles, the fixed stars and their influence in astrology.

Whether you subscribe to the Monthly Lunar Planner or not, the rest of the Lunar Planner web site is packed full of educational resources, which are free and available to everyone. So please feel welcome to explore.


Hi Nick,

I wanted to write you a note and let you know that you are the first subscription that I have ever signed up for on the internet since I have been using it. I have been so used to everything being free for so long in the 'wild-west' days of the web that I didn't really find anything I thought was worth paying for... Until you!

I have been wanting to write you / speak with you for a while anyway because the level of your understanding is so profound that I wanted to connect a little more on where it is coming from. I had been aware of your work through another galactic astrologer friend of mine years ago. She was sending me some of your work...and since I have found it online and I print it out and read it faithfully every month...

So this is to tell you that I think subscribing to your work is well worth it. Your level of understanding and galactic connectivity is profound and it has opened much understanding for thank you for your work and all that you carry ~ Nickki Lee Hill
