The last NEW MOON of 2018 is on Friday, 7 December 2018, - 07.20 and it is a Sagittarius New Moon. Remember the best time for your wish is within 8 hours afterwards the lunation but anything within 48 hours is still charged with the New Moon energy.
This new moon is a time when we can transcend the details of day-to-day life and nurture our faith, hope, and vision. It's time to explore, to be adventurous!

Yasmin Boland (Moonology) suggests the following action plans for the Sagittarius New Moon:
◗ 1. Get away
Travel, and whatever else represents freedom to you – these are two of the most fun things you can expect to come up now. If you’re feeling hemmed in by life and need to get away from it all, use the power of the New Moon in the freedom-loving and wandering sign of Sagittarius either to make a travel booking or actually take off. Sagittarius is the sign that knows that things can always get better, and sometimes we just need a new perspective to see how blessed our lives are.
◗ 2. Study
Study is also a worthwhile pursuit this month. Sometimes studying seems like a drag, but the truth is that it brings freedom because it opens us up to more work opportunities which, in turn, can bring more cash and money and thus more freedom, at least to some degree.
◗ 3. Search for meaning
The Great Cosmic Quest also comes into view this month. In other words, it’s time to search life for some meaning. How are you doing with that? Sagittarius is the keeper of life philosophies. The New Moon in this sign is a good time to check that you’re not being narrow-minded.
◗ 4. Laugh
Having fun and taking risks are both under the remit of the New Moon in Sagittarius. If life has become a tad staid, ask yourself if you’re doing enough of either. I’m not suggesting you do a high-wire walk between the Petronas Towers, but use the power of the New Moon in Sagittarius to introduce some kind of ‘spin of the wheel of fortune’ into your life. Excess isn’t only extra-possible now, it’s positively encouraged. On the other side of things, know that Sagittarius touches on legal issues. The Sagittarius New Moon brings new energy into any ongoing battles.
◗ 5. Be grateful
Know that you’re blessed! Sagittarius is a sign that can bring us perspective. If you’ve been moaning or focusing on the negative, then use this time to turn that around. As my teacher in India says: ‘The secret of life is to know that you’re blessed, and to live your life within that knowing.’
