Understanding New Moons
New Moons start each lunar month and tend to heighten inner energies, especially the emotional, intuitive, soul parts. Studies show they affect energy levels, health and moods. New Moons are not visible but are equally energy-strong to Full Moons.
Kickstart Your Lunar Month
Often 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 energy, and sense into the zodiac sign energy 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 sign’s element and the vibe or mood it carries. How does an earth, air, fire or water vibe effect the lunar month?
