Understanding New Moons
New Moons kickstart each lunar month and tend to heighten our inner energies, especially our emotional, intuitive selves. They affect energy levels, health, moods and the soul. Unlike Full Moons, New Moons are not visible, but they have similar strength.
Kickstart Your Lunar Month
Many people meditate at a New Moon to allow space for soul intuition. New Moons offer a great chance to reflect on the lunar month that’s passing and focus intentions for the lunar month arriving. We let go of the previous month’s overarching zodiac sign, and sense into the zodiac sign of the current New Moon.
The Month’s Zodiac Sign & Element
Each month’s overarching zodiac sign has its own energetic themes. A good starting point is to consider the zodiac sign’s element and the vibe or mood it carries. Will this lunar month carry an earth, air, fire or water vibe?

This New Moon is always in the weeks close to your birthday, and it can mark a potent year if the New Moon happens on your birthday or a day or two before or after.
Can a New Moon be an Eclipse or Supermoon?
Yes. Look in the table below for 2019’s. When an eclipse coincides with a new moon, it’s called a Solar Eclipse. Eclipses and Supermoons increase the intensity of new moons they happen with.
