As one of our challenges today we were to come up with December trivia; flowers, birthstones, astrological signs and the New moon.
December has two flowers Narcissus and Holly. Narcissus means egotism and formality, while holly means foresight.
The challenge stated there were two December Birthstones, which I would guess are turquoise as the modern one and Zircon as the traditional one. However I found a web site that listed thirteen birthstones for the calendar month of December, or as Sun/Star, Planetary, or Talismanic stones for the Zodiac sign of Sagittarius or Capricorn. Birthstones for the calendar month of December are turquoise, blue topaz, tanzanite, zircon, lapis, onyx, ruby, and chrysoprase and the Zodiac signs of Sagittarius and Capricorn include five additional stones: agate, garnet, amethyst, sapphire, and beryl. That is a lot of stones to pick from !
As mentioned above two astrological signs of December are Sagittarius and Capricorn. I fall right at the end of Sagittarius.
The Sagittarius New Moon is the precursor to the Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse December 21, 2010 - The moon names vary by culture, but I believe the one we are looking for is Cold Moon. The New Moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle and offers an opportunity for a fresh new beginning in a new sign of the zodiac, with a new focus and energy. In Sagittarius the soul seeks experiences which extend our reach and satisfy our search for adventure and meaning, and the Sagittarius New Moon seeks optimism, confidence, and the development of an inner trust and faith in life itself. December is a good time to begin to realign our intentions for the New Year, and the combination of planetary events in this New Moon can help us to make powerful changes.
Interesting Information that SUNNY238 posted in our (((Sending Skinny Vibes))) Team - Winter Solstice occurs on December 21st (roughly), this year there will be a full moon and a Lunar Eclipse on this day!!
