“We are all like the bright moon, we still have our darker side.” ― Kahlil Gibran

Your daily tarot card reading for each zodiac sign's astrology-based horoscope is here! Today we have a New Moon in Sagittarius and the Sun is in Sagittarius, too. The difference between this new Moon cycle is that this is a Micro-Moon in Sagittarius. Have you noticed that it appears smaller and less brilliant than the Moon in Gemini? 

That's because it is. The Micro-Moon is in what's called an apogee which means that it's more distant from the Earth than usual, but its impact on the planet is still greatly felt. Micro-Moon signals to the entire planet from animal to ocean tide, to pull back and away or to increase and to fill the Earth.

The larger the Moon the more fullness the oceans become. Animals feel the need to explore. A smaller Moon is perceived by nature that it's time to modify how to do things, and for this reason, it's important for all of us to adapt to change with a "wait and see" mindset.

The Winter solstice is not too far away, and everything about winter seems to signal a similar rhythm of life. The cold weather makes being indoors more alluring. Humans and animals want to snuggle up with someone to stay warm.

It's the time when animals have long begun their slumber and nearly all leaves that covered tree roots have finally found their purpose beneath a blanket of fresh, white snow.

A New Moon is the beginning of a Moon's cycle, and a Full Moon is a time of energy's release. This isn't a time to make major decisions. We are in a period of flux. The Winter season comes in just a few days. Perhaps this is the universe's dance to usher the energy in.

So, why not make the most of this season and prepare yourself with some type of cleansing ritual that communicates to your senses that you're ready for that change to begin?

There is symbolism on each Tarot card that you can use to provide insight when things are unclear. Check out your zodiac sign for Monday, December 18th, 2017, daily tarot reading and astrology predictions.

Then, as they do, begin to claim them for yourself. Write these dreams down somewhere that you can return to review them. 

Set this list in a place where you can see it daily and then begin to meditate on it calling each item on your list into existence in your life until the next New Moon cycle arrives on January 17th, 2018.
