The New Moon

The New Moon is the part of the cycle when we begin to create the magic, to look to our dreams and see the potential in front of us. We can connect to our inner world and ask for the things that we really want from our lives.

It's a time to look forward and plan the future, remembering that anything is possible for us.

It's often described as being the time for planting new seeds for the future, the New Moon offering the fertile soil in which to plant those seeds and the cycle that is beginning offers them space and time to grow.

New Moons occur when the Sun and Moon meet up with each other in the skies, known in astrology as a conjunction. This meeting gives us a check in point for our dreams and desires.

The Sun represents our personality and ego, the parts of ourselves that we show to the world, while the Moon is our emotional body, often the part that we keep hidden and show only to a select few.

With these two energies coming together, we find the head and the heart can connect more easily allowing us to see the vision we hold for our future more clearly. This is why setting our intentions at the New Moon is so potent, because we can sift through the external noise and expectations and really get clear on what it is that we really want for ourselves.
