Welcome to a new week and new month – at least as far as the lunar phases are concerned. Today the Moon will reach the New Phase at 1:32 PM. When we count the Lunar Cycles, we track them according to the zodiac Signs.  under which they start.

Simple Math – Each zodiac sign is about 30 days. The Lunar month is between 28-29 day. There will be overlap every once in a while.

In the Gregorian Calendar world, this happens as well. You usually hear about it when there are 2 Full Moons within a month – often times referred to as a “Blue Moon,” which means, in the vernacular of our times, something that does not happen very often.
