New Moon – Beginnings, setting intention, initiate, set a wish or intention
Ideas, hopes, wishes, or dreams that were “seeded” during the New Moon phase
I wrote an Article about the New Moon Phase back in July
At the time of the New Moon, the Moon is located directly in between the Sun and the Earth. You might ask, :Then why do we not have an eclipse every month at the New Moon?” It has to do with the orbital plane of the Moon being different than that of the Earth to the sun. 2 times per year, they meet (at the Spring and Autumn Equinox) and can potentially offer us an eclipse.
The Moon does not generate any light itself. The bright moon is caused by the light of the Sun reflecting off its surface. So we can only see brightness on the side of the Moon that faces the sun. When the Moon is stationed in between, we see nothing but darkness.
Astrologically, it is said that the energy of the Moon is at its lowest point. It is the starting point of the lunar cycle.
Born Under the New Moon
Do you know what phase the moon was in when you were born. This is not a common piece of astrology that is looked at. In my opinion, one that is not given the importance it deserves. After discovering my own, I was able to see its influence over my life. I may talk more about that when we get to the disseminating phase (HINT HINT).
If you do not know it, it is simple to find. Go to a search engine. Search:
“Lunar Phase at Birth”
There are many sites that will give you this information. I will outline the basic lunar phase astrology for each phase in upcoming posts. But for now, we are starting
New Moon – Low Energy Phase
- In tune with what they want
- Try new things with Childlike wonder and innocence
- It is a loving energy
- Drawn to try new things and follow trends
- They are Creative idea people
- Aggressively go after what they want
- Always a shiny new idea on the horizon
- Dog like enthusiasm – like a large labrador chasing things around
- Energy can bee fleeting
- Fizzles out before its done
- Dog like enthusiasm like ADHD – jumping to the next shiny object they see and forgetting what they were aggressively attacking moments before
- Cloaked in a darkness around themselves – Unable to see how they are from an outside perspective.
How New Moon people can Relate to the other phases.
- Low Energy phases are good – Including Balsamic, New and Crescent – This is when mind and heart are in alignment
- High energy Phases are more Difficult – Gibbous, Full and Disseminating
- Full Moon is a time to look inward and focus on personal reflection. The energy at full moon is the full expression of the energy exposed at the New Moon. It is more intense though.
- Quarter Phases use to evaluate self.
SO . . . What Does all this mean about today?
For the New Moon Phase in Aries, 2020, we need to look at the Date of the New Moon (yesterday 3/24) and interpret the Sabian Symbols for the day. I listed these in yesterday’s post
For the New Moon, the Sabian Symbol for the Sun is “A Triangle with Wings”. Personally, this symbol has always bothered me. The Triangle imagery speaks of Illuminati influences. Even stronger for me was that when I first encountered the symbol, I noticed a character on a TV cartoon that my kids would watch all the time (Gravity Falls). And being the ADD type that I am, would often get pulled into the show. Though he does not have wings, he did fly. He was an interdimensional being who caused trouble and invoked chaos.
Well anyway, consider what this means to you. You may just consider it and ask about what it means to you. You also might want to dig deeper. Look at your personal Natal Astrology Chart and compare it to the energetics of the New Moon yesterday. If you do not have a copy of your chart, you can get one by ordering it here:
And Something Fun
Tolkien Reading Day is an annual event, launched by The Tolkien Society in 2003, that takes place on 25 March. It has the aim of encouraging the reading of the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, and the use of Tolkien’s works in education and library groups. The date of 25 March was chosen in honour of the fall of Sauron, in Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.
