Good Day or Evening

I hope this finds everyone healthy and happy. I want to apologize for all the missing posts from yesterday, and today. I catch a cold from my fiancee and it kicked my body into sleepy, healing mode. I do not feel up to sitting at my computer so I am using my Kindle Fire Tablet to do posts which is a real challenge as I can only see about 1/3 on the screen as I usually do.

For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere I will get your Moon phase and current planetary positions for tomorrow posted today.

Hopefully, I will get all regular daily, weekly, and full Moon posts up tomorrow. I will try to get the full Moon posts up in time for them to be useful everywhere on Gaia.

Thank you all for your “prayers” and candles for my youngest son! While he is not out of the dark places in his mind completely he is doing much better. I am very great ful to all of you who helped him during his darkest days.

Now to do daily and birthday horoscopes along with Moon phase and planetary positions posts than it is back to sleep for me to let my body heal.

December 18 Daily Correspondence Digest for the Northern Hemisphere’s Moon Phase and Planetary Positions

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else, you know was on the date the person was born.


The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today until 10 PM PST. The Full Moon peaks in Gemini at 11:36 PM EST (8:36 PM PST).

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Pay attention to everything you say and do today because this is an accident-prone day. Of course, an accident doesn’t have to happen; however, this Full Moon energy might distract you or someone else. Be mindful and aware to avoid regrets later.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today, financial issues about your wealth versus the wealth and assets of someone else might come to a head. Possibly, a dispute will be resolved? On the other hand, a dispute could be intensified. Tread carefully. The wind can blow either direction.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place. This is bound to make you more emotional, which could put you at odds with someone who is close to you – a partner or spouse or dear friend. Try not to take things personally. Stay chill.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The Moon is your ruler, which is why you feel the Full Moon. Today’s Full Moon might create health concerns for you or some challenges dealing with a pet or even problems with a coworker. Be patient and take things slowly and carefully.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might find yourself at odds with a friend today or perhaps a group. (Today’s Full Moon can create a dynamic where there is in opposition or a disagreement between people.) Fortunately, this tension will dissipate after the Full Moon peaks tonight.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you might feel pulled between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your career or public reputation. This is because of the Full Moon. With this particular Full Moon, you can’t ignore home and family. (So much going on!)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a mildly accident-prone day because of the Full Moon, which means you have to pay attention to everything you say and do. Be mindful and aware. Also, be careful about blurting out something that you might later regret (definitely not your style). You are a tactful person.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Be aware of issues related to banking, shared property and inheritances because today’s Full Moon could create problems for you, or it might highlight areas that need your attention. (Don’t be caught asleep at the switch.) Be aware of these issues.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today the only Full Moon that is opposite your sign all year is taking place. This will naturally set up some kind of tension between you and others. In fact, this tension might have been building up for the last few days. Fortunately, it will diminish or disappear by tomorrow or Monday.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be patient with work colleagues today as well as anyone who is involved with your health or your pet because these are areas that will be stressed by today’s Full Moon. For example, you might have an argument with someone, especially about a pet. Fortunately, things will mellow out in the next 48 hours.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an accident-prone day for your kids, so be extra vigilant today. Everyone can be distracted because energy is heightened during a Full Moon because every Full Moon means the Sun and the Moon are directly opposite each other. (Polarized energy!)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Be diplomatic and cooperative with family members today. Meanwhile, you might feel a tug-of-war between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your career or your public reputation. In this case, you cannot ignore your career. It is what it is.

If Your Birthday Is Today

DECEMBER 18 birthday horoscope predicts that you are bold! You are the archetype of what fearless is. You’re the kind of person who will climb the highest mountain or at least try it. This clever Sagittarius is also the friendliest and kindest person anyone would want to have in his or her corner. You don’t get scared so easily.

You don’t mind these kinds of compliments as you love being the “talk.” Wherever you go, the center of attention is you. Social settings don’t seem to be the same without your presence. Even as a young person you were this way. It must be a natural December 18 birthday personality trait.

On the other hand, as the December 18th zodiac sign is Sagittarius, you are kind of unrealistic people, tenacious and full of pride. But as you grow older and mature, you are likely to become fixed in your lifestyle. Some missed the opportunity to find out how sensitive you are. You do a good job in hiding your feelings. You’re pretty strong, and you’d make a great player or someone in charge of a large corporation. The future of person who born on 18 December can be greatly exciting.

The December 18 horoscope predicts that you are a proud individual when it comes to career and financial decisions. You handle situations with a great deal of care where your employees are concerned, and you get respect in return. When dealing with partnerships, if both parties are happy, the team is more secure, or so you feel. You even feel this way on a personal and intimate level. People born on this Sagittarius birthday love to laugh and hate being alone.

A challenge is right up your alley as it stirs up your get-up-and-go attitude. Telling you not to do something is like telling you to do it. You get all excited like a ball of fire. Your determination is to be admired, Sagittarius. However, the December 18th horoscope shows that your downfall could be that you are weak and impatient. You will buy or do things on a whim and suffer the consequences later. If you’d wait sometimes, you’d save yourself some trouble.

While in a relationship, this Sagittarius birthday person will generally be the romantic type. He or she will shower you with little gifts that come straight for the heart. You won’t even know Cupid’s knocking at your door when you let him in. As good as you are though; you can’t seem to find someone who is truly compatible. Aww, don’t give up! The December 18 birthday astrology predicts that you will certainly find that special person who will love you unconditionally.

You seem to need love more than any other Sagittarian born under this zodiac sign. It would seem that you could become overprotective of those you love or perhaps a little obsessive. You love hard when you do. Your partner couldn’t find anyone who is more dedicated and loving than you. It’s not hard for you to open up to your partner but you are more dependent on a relationship.

If you are looking for love in someone who was born today, then make sure you are travel ready. The December 18 birthday personality love to travel almost as much as having sex. So bring your sexiest attire for those evenings in and out.

Attention to detail is what got you into some of your jobs but being useful and levelheaded is why they kept you. However, you need a lot of stimulation to be at your best. Keeping your mind occupied is one thing, but you must be active too. You prefer not to sit at a desk all day. At home, however, you like peace and tranquility. Although the December 18 zodiac birthday person is not greedy, they will usually have a nice place.

The December 18 astrology suggests that you are a positive thinker. You’re unsophisticated in your enthusiasm about life and health. Stay away from nay-sayers as they can contaminate your environment. You need not stress over things that are petty and people who are perhaps envious. Otherwise, you are a healthy Sagittarius if you stay on top of your diet, schedule and exercise regime, but don’t overdo it. Don’t feel guilty about relaxing. You deserve it.
