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, soul mates and soul mysteries! Unlike Full Moons, New Moons are not visible, but their effects are often just as potent.
Kickstart Your Lunar Month
Many people do a meditation for the month at a New Moon or focus thoughts, feelings, hopes and desires. New Moons offer a great chance to pause, reflect on the month we’re leaving behind and focus intentions for the current lunar month. We let go of the previous month’s vibes, and get new vibes determined by the zodiac sign of the current New Moon.
The Month’s Zodiac Sign & Element
Each zodiac sign has its own energetic themes and a good starting point is to consider the zodiac sign’s element – is the lunar month going to be earth, air, fire or water?
