The New Moon is the first phase of the moon’s cycle and represents a time of new beginnings, fresh starts, and making plans for the future. It occurs when the moon is located in between Earth and the Sun, with its illuminated side facing away from us. New Moons occur about once a month and can be seen for one day as a faint waxing crescent in the western sky shortly after sunset
New Moons symbolise new beginnings, offering us an opportunity to start over again. This phase of the lunar cycle presents an ideal time to set intentions and make plans for our lives ahead. Whether it’s setting personal goals or making big decisions pertaining to our careers or relationships, New Moon energy can help manifest these ideas into reality. Since New Moons are all about renewal, they offer us a chance to look back on our lives so far and evaluate what we want moving forward– both personally and professionally
At New Moons, we also get to experience heightened emotions. Our innermost needs, desires, and dreams may become more obvious to us during this phase of the Moon cycle. New Moons can bring up feelings that may have been dormant or hidden away deep inside of us but are now coming into light
During New Moons we can find ourselves in reflecting mode or feel lifted up in creative energy as this is a great time for brainstorming new ideas and starting something fresh with enthusiasm and vigor. New moons also encourage introspection, which helps us recognize any patterns that may have been holding us back from achieving our goals or living our truth
New Moons are potent times for releasing what no longer serves us too– whether it be negative thoughts or habits that no longer align with our highest self-being– so that we can move forward with open arms towards our future aspirations
Each New Moon brings its unique set of energies depending on its astrological sign and its individual influences from transiting planets at the time of occurrence. Each sign has distinct characteristics which translate into different energies associated with how each New Moon will make us feel emotionally while creating different opportunities for growth depending on where it falls in our birth chart
No matter how you decide to take advantage of New Moon energy, remember that each person’s journey is unique so be sure to reflect honestly on your experiences during this time.
