The new Moon will be going through my 12th house on December 29th, 2016.
I didn’t think much of it before – nothing much seemed to happen in there before (was that really the case?!), and I thought to myself: What a waste of a new Moon. Much to do about nothing. But last night I realized what it likely means for me.
Recently I’ve been studying non-violent communication, and going through YouTube video workshops held by Marshall Rosenberg.
I had not been getting along with someone close to me. Our communication had been passive-aggressive/aggressive, and getting nowhere, but I didn’t know how to get through it. Then in comes my sociology professor. She introduced Mr. Rosenberg (my saving grace) to the class.
Oddly, there was an actual toy giraffe issue between myself and this person I had not been getting along with. They had my toy, and I wanted it back but there didn’t seem to be any good way to get it back.
Then as I was watching the YouTube videos I realized Mr. Rosenberg uses the Giraffe, and Jackal animals to describe non-violent and violent communication styles.
Ah-ha. THIS is what I need to learn. The toy was trying to tell me/us!
This toy represented my late husband, with his super long neck on his 7 foot frame. He being a Pisces — well things are getting clearer now. Moon in 12th house is like Moon in Pisces!

Not only my personal transits, but mundane transits highlight communication as an important subject matter – so it’s no surprise then that non-violent communication should be at the forefront of my new Moon mind. And this is a time for us all to dig deep.
And in comes the new Moon in the 12th on December 29th. Maybe *finally* I will learn how to communicate non-violently. With Aries on my 3rd house cusp, if I get into any kind of petty or low brow argument – the gloves are off. But non-violent communication is right up my 9th house Libra cusp alley – especially with Jupiter inside.
THIS is it, I hope.
This New Moon in the 12th house is likely priming me to *go gently, giraffe style*. <3
Lots to celebrate, reflect upon, and think about with these upcoming celestial events. Gemini and Libra are air signs and they like to talk it out, think it out, and express themselves assertively and with evenness.

A number of keywords for Gemini: Changeable, love of variety and mental excitement, $20 words, a gift for the gab, writers and communicators, intelligent, flighty, fickle, two sides, the watchers and observers, song-writing, jingles, text messaging, telephoning, email, board (not bored) games, Scrabble!, Trivial Pursuit, siblings, neighbours, learning, discovering, taking it all in, quick, witty, versatile, mental gymnastics, trade and commerce, sales…
The Sun & Moon are overwhelmingly happy and content with each other today and the Sun will get eclipsed (Solar Eclipse). I see this as the ego and self-interests being overshadowed and making way for the process of reconnecting and communicating with our emotional selves. We want to get in touch, understand, know, and communicate our feelings to others and more importantly — to ourselves!
Through the Venus Rx-Saturn Trine, Venus is re-evaluating her mighty and long-lasting karmic commitments she’s made to her finances, beauty, self-esteem, love, friendships, and relationships. She is taking a look at whether she wants to be further tested in these areas or make the final ascent to reach and end her old goals. For the most part, she’s done with what’s went on in the past.
Now Saturn is in Libra and Libra is at home in Venus so Venus Rx Trine Saturn is an important aspect as it relates to Libran themes, issues, and opportunities.
Saturn Libra has been doing a dance since 2009 but it’s since July 2010 that we’ve all really noticed serious and very real restrictions in our partnerships, art, contracts, finances, etc..
Saturn Libra is helping Venus take a fair and balanced look at all this.
And Saturn enters Scorpio in October 2012 so Saturn has 4 more months to do its work in finalizing and marking the tests our relationships, art, money, beauty, etc. have had to endure for quite some time..
As well, Saturn Libra is in Trine with Venus Rx until roughly August 7th which is also around the time that Venus is completely out of the shadow period (July 31). So by the start of August, the majority of us will begin to have a solid footing on where we are going next in the Libran areas of our lives.
Yes, we will feel more comfort, at ease, and at home with ourselves, and our renewed and redone commitments.
That’s a relief because the last two years have been the most trying years of my life (in memory. LOL)
Which house will the Sun, New Moon, and Venus Rx in Gemini land in your chart? Where’s Libra? Have you ever done a New Moon ritual or intention?
Things you can do? Send a message of love, send a package of joy, write out verbal hugs, express heartfelt thanks and gratitude. Name your feelings. Meditate upon your relationship to yourself, money, beauty, art, etc..
You long for a secure foundation upon which you can build your life, and you should now go about achieving this. If your relationship still lacks stability or has become less stable, you can do something about this in the weeks ahead. Get rid of any uncertainties, be open and honest about how you see the relationship developing, and see if your own hopes are compatible with those of your partner. After all, you want to be able to rely on him. If you are single and now meet someone, any relationship which develops has good chances of being a stable one.
However, if this doesn’t happen, you should use this time to work on your self-confidence. Ask yourself what you’re good at and take every opportunity to do this. Make use of your talents! Get a sense of how special you are. This will help you create the necessary foundation for a healthy self-confidence. And this self-confidence is in turn the basis for any good relationship.
