New Moon: Once more with Feeling
A little astrology in your life can help you a lot when you want to learn more about the big astrological influences. Learning about the moon phases will help you to have a better grasp of your life and what to expect. On this journey through the moon phases, we will be guiding you to learn more about how the moon can affect you in your life. The very first moon phase is the New Moon. You know what they say - a New Moon, a new beginning a new you. The new moon is a clean slate to start off fresh but learn more about it below:
As the Moon is right between the Earth and the Sun, it appears to unite with Sol on our sky. This moment can be a paradox: as the Moon conjuncts the Sun, we could say that a maximum of light and awareness is poured into our conscience, but if we look at the sky, the Moon appears dark and all things are imbued with an unsettling kind of anticipation. It’s the beginning of a new phase, a fresh creative impulse that can offer bright solutions to the problems of the previous cycle.
However, before things are put into motion, the New Moon moment offers a space of stillness, a white page where anything could happen. It can be difficult for those of us who like to be in charge, because New Moons are times of uncertainty when it’s best to reflect and to set our intentions for the future more than to take decisive action. The nature of these intentions is best shown by the sign and the house of the Sun-Moon conjunction. Marrying personal will with the underlying currents of the Universe shows its results six months later, when a Full Moon shines in the same sign, revealing what has and what hasn’t come to fruition.
