DECEMBER 2015 Astrology Forecast- all times ET: 

Through December, Mars is in the sign of Libra, which emphasizes the importance of diplomacy and strategy in the expression of desire. Mars symbolizes assertiveness, drive, anger and passion. Mental calculations and feats of negotiation can be achieved during this cycle. However, it is essential to note that an obsessive agenda and/or high degree of volatility may blindside the ultimate goal early in the month, especially from 12/6 through 12/11. This is because Mars sails through geometric pictures with Pluto (symbolizing power) and then Uranus (indicative of the unexpected). Keep hyper-alert when in motion or in dialogue. This may simply suggest dynamic shifts, although somewhere they may be extreme.

The Sagittarius New Moon occurs on December 11 at 5:29 AM ET.

Because Saturn and the outer planets are in relatively low-degree of signs, we continue to have some very long void-of-course moon periods. This occurs when the moon’s movement through the 30 degrees of a sign, passes the point when it no longer will make a geometric picture with any other planet until it leaves that sign. Since the moon symbolizes emotional attachment, the void-of-course creates a nebulous period for decisions. For Moon VOC (void of course) Defined:
