16 December 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.

From Moongiant.com

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.

Visit the December 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

The Waxing Gibbous on December 16 has an illumination of 94%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On December 16 the Moon is 12.37 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

The 8 Lunar Phases

There are 8 lunar phases the Moon goes through in its 29.53 days lunar cycle. The 4 major Moon phases are Full Moon, New Moon, First Quarter and Last Quarter. Between these major phases, there are 4 minor ones: the Waxing Crescent, Waxing Gibbous, Waning Gibbous and Waning Crescent. For more info on the Moon Cycle and on each phase check out Wikipedia Lunar Phase page.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 11 AM to 4 PM EST today (8 AM to 1 PM PST). After that, the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Until mid-Jan. next year, you’ll have lots of energy and will feel vigourous and be willing to work! This is all due to the influence of your ruler Mars in your fellow Fire sign. Mars will make you want to travel and explore your world!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

For the next six weeks, you might encounter disagreements with others about jointly-held resources or how to spend a limited amount of money. Be careful of this so you can avoid conflict.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

For the next six weeks, Mars will be opposite your sign, which happens only once every two years. This can trigger conflict with partners and close friends because it’s easy to feel annoyed with them. (This is why patience will be your best friend.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will accomplish much more than usual in the next six weeks because you will work hard and take pride in what you do. Plus, you will find it easy to defer tomorrow’s pleasure for today’s work. Impressive!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Because fiery Mars is in your fellow Fire sign for the next six weeks, you will benefit. It will be a favourable time for all kinds of activities, especially physical activities because you will be energized. You will also be more effective and more competent than usual in whatever you do. “Yay me!”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’ll be tempted to behave compulsively and act inappropriately in the next six weeks while fiery Mars is at the bottom of your chart. This might trigger conflict with family. Your only recourse is to be loving, kind and patient with others. (Gone by Jan 23.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In the next six weeks, your physical vitality will be stronger than usual, which will give you a chance to work hard and accomplish a lot. Your health will feel vigourous! New opportunities might present themselves to you. You will be very convincing!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Be careful because in the next six weeks, you are tempted to spend a lot of money. If you’ve got it – great. If you don’t have it – don’t go into debt. Fortunately, you will also be resourceful at seeing ways to use your possessions to get things done.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Fiery Mars will be in your sign for the next six weeks, which means all aspects of activity in your life will increase. You will work hard to further your own interests. You will easily assert yourself among others. You’ll be a fighter for your own rights more than usual. You’ll be a winner!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Do be careful in the next six weeks because someone out there might be working against you or perhaps, they don’t have your best interests at heart. If you have a suspicion of this, if you think something fishy is going on – it is. Forewarned is forearmed.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

For the next six weeks, you will be more physically active with groups and organizations. You will easily formulate goals and decide to pursue them. Although you might come on strong, use this increased energy to coordinate with others. Look for a win-win solution.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Mars will be at the top of your chart for the next six weeks, which will arouse your ambition and make you want to work hard to get something done. However, this could put you at conflict with others, especially supervisors and parents. Remember your objective. Avoid unnecessary arguments.

DECEMBER 16 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a Sagittarius who smiles on demand at the sight of a camera. You’re not shy when it comes to the attention being directly on you. People come to know your reputation before they know you. They say you are amusing, friendly and you bring the sunshine wherever you go. You live life with a happy smile.

I bet you are invited to all the parties; probably first on the list! It seems as though you are at your best with an audience. This is just the quality you’ll need if you are considering a job in the media or one that needs a grouping of people.

The December 16 birthday personality is someone who knows how to hold an intelligent conversation or even discuss their deepest emotions and fears. You won’t find many like you. You have a great attitude and friends, family and business minds trust your judgment. You like what money can offer you, but at the same time, you plan to live a long time. You’ll need it in the long run, and you know that saving and investing can earn you a comfortable lifestyle.

Let’s talk about your friends and lovers. As the December 16 zodiac sign is Sagittarius, you are not an easy person to get to know. You may be a little intimidating or proud. A closed mouth is never fed! Don’t exclude those who love you, reach out to them when you need a hand. You feel the same way in relationships. You’re highly sexual beings, but when you’re not seeing anyone, you tend to keep to yourself.

The December 16 horoscope predicts that you can neglect your health. At least, you do as you please as you don’t like following rules on how or what to eat. You say, ‘enough with the daily requirements suggestions already.’ If it’s up to you, and it is, you will eat dinner at breakfast time and vice-versa.

Eating right and getting plenty of exercises will help you live longer and stronger, advises the 16th Sagittarius birthday meaning. Can you imagine winning a marathon at 70 years old? It’s possible. Exercise and the proper diet have more benefits than you know. It also relieves stress. Try an alternative lifestyle. You might turn out to love it and me for suggesting it.

As a means of employment, those born on this zodiac birthday, Sagittarius, are inventive individuals. You may have even started a profession of your own through a hobby or an idea you may have had. You know life is what you make it, but you don’t like setting goals, either. The future of person who born on 16 December can be rewarding provided they learn to have some focus in life.

As a rule, the December 16th astrology predicts that you don’t like being bossed around. You’d rather do your thing and let your gut instinct guide you in the direction that you think you should go. This is all well and fine but honey, you must plan for something if you are to accomplish anything. Let me tell you a secret. Life is too short to leave it in the hands of no one. Get on with Nike and “Just do it.”

Your friends and family members say this could be the reason why you get bored quickly. You don’t have anything to look forward to. You are creative. Why don’t you get away, do some traveling? Normally, this will give you a new perspective on things. As a career choice, the Sagittarius born today is capable of educating as a profession as well as consulting. Furthermore, careers in marketing could be a profitable decision, or you could choose one that will let you use your writing skills.

As success goes, you may have a different opinion of what it means as you are not a materialistic person at all. However, you’re somewhat the show-off. This December 16 birthday personality is private, and you will not tell people when you need help.

You’re stubborn, even with your health care professional. Imagine being stress-free because you can be if you eat right and exercise. While you may not be rich, this Sagittarius birthday person can be successful in their own right. When it comes to making a decision, whether it’s based on logical reasoning or your instinct, it’s all in your hands.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Look for ways to explore travel opportunities or expand your world through further education or training because this will make you happy and give you a sense of fulfillment. Satisfy this urge you have to reach out and grab more of life. After all, you’re an adventurer!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

With Mars opposite your sign now, you are easily annoyed with those who are closest to you. However, ironically, you also have more objectivity and an ability to see the true nature of the relationship, which means you can see how to improve it.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Right now. you have lots of energy to work hard. In fact, many of you are even delegating to others! “Move that bridge!” It won’t always be this easy; therefore, make the most of this. Give yourself an ambitious To Do list and get on it because you’ll be productive.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you have a choice to work hard, party hard, or both. You’ll be hands-on with your work; plus, coworkers are supportive now. Nevertheless, you want to party, enjoy social outings, sports events and playful times with kids. (Juggle this as best you can.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Due to increased activity and chaos on the home front, give attention to home, family and your private life. You might have an important discussion with a parent. Others will deal with visiting guests, redecorating projects, renovations or residential moves. Busy you!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

No sign values friendships more than you. You work well with groups and you enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded people around you. This is a good day to sit down with someone and discuss your future goals. It’s also a good day to get on board with some kind of team effort.

DECEMBER 15 birthday horoscope predicts it’s likely that you are extremely friendly and funny. You’re on the Most Wanted list. Some of your friends say you like the attention people bestowed on you, almost putting you on a pedestal. You take control of audiences and make them your own. You have a magnetic personality.

The December 15 birthday personality follow their path. This Sagittarian birthday person is about as unconventional as they come. If it’s different, you’ll do it. If they say it can’t be done, you’ll do it. You are driven by the idea of fame and fortune. However, you have limitations as to how far you will go to get it. Having been brought up with values, you maintain a high set of principles to live by.

On the other hand, you can be spontaneous. As the December 15th birthday zodiac sign is Sagittarius, you need a bit of stimulation or you get restless. Those born on this zodiac birthday are curious individuals. Sometimes this nature can wind you up in a pickle as you are likely to have accidents. Experimenting may not be your cup of tea when it comes to certain things that have a large amount of risk involved.

The December 15th birthday horoscope predicts that you have a big heart. Many of your friends come to you for advice mainly because you’re logical. You have a way at looking at things from a distance. This makes for an unbiased opinion which makes you an excellent mediator or adviser. If today is your birthday, you like to dispute facts with others especially with a friend.

Let’s talk about your family. When it comes to commitments or family ties, you are not as close as you could be to your roots. You continue to hope for better days although you have had failed attempts in the past. Being a parent, however, teaches you a thing or two about making certain decisions. When you are faced with a particular situation, you think back to how your parents reacted to you. The December 15 birthday personality is likely to base part of his or her decisions on childhood memories or the desire to change what you desire, might feel wrong.

The December 15 astrology predicts that you don’t seem to have a lot of luck with relationships. This doesn’t seem to discourage you from finding your soul mate. You don’t handle disappointment very well, however. No one knows this but you tend to take breakups hard as you suffer in private.

The December 15 birthday meanings suggest that you may find that a career in the human service field suits you as you are a caring individual. Helping others brings you much personal satisfaction. You are rewarded for your good deeds. Money seems to drop down from the sky on you. Otherwise, you work hard for the money and you won’t let setbacks deter you from reaching your goal. If at all possible, you grind harder to succeed.

This Sagittarian’s health is generated mainly from a positive and winning attitude. You are your own immune system’s booster. Generally, good health belongs to you, but you should be careful to guard against diseases of the liver and stomach. With a December 15 birthday, you could be prone to accidents resulting in a bruised leg. Certain foods make you feel good, and this could be dangerous when it comes to maintaining a comfortable weight. Although cocoa is good for you, it’s only good in moderation. Even changing when you eat, can have positive effects on your body and mind.

How do you do it, Sagittarius? You’re incredible! Being born on this Sagittarius birthday attract a lot of attention without demanding it. People love you and trust you with their intimate details. The future of person who born on 15 December is one that will be full of life. You are someone who would have no problems running for an election.

Additionally, you are focused on the bigger picture, and that is what you mainly dream about. Your friends say you are complicated when it comes to romance. Also, you could have some problems with food. Try changing your routine a bit and eat healthier foods.

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.
