What is a New Moon?
The New Moon is when the Sun and Moon are aligned, with the Sun and Earth on opposite sides of the Moon.
Can you see it?
No, the alignment of the Sun, the Moon, and Earth, leaves the side of the Moon that faces Earth in complete darkness. We may only see a little crescent Moon.
What’s so special about it?
The energy surrounding the New Moon is an energy that encourages us to release the old and make way for the new. I find a lot of people who’ve been hibernating at home as much as possible tend to try get out a little more! A lot more of us start adapting to a “Fuck it, I’m going to do it” attitude! And we really do start looking ahead to what we can change in our life.
This is a great time to set intentions like –
I’m going to start a course/project/programme.
I’m going to organize my finances and/or manifest some more cash flow.
I’m going to distance myself / cut away people who are negative influences in my life.
Moving home / Re-decorating / Organizing or clearing the home!
Some people cleanse their crystals – personally I leave that to the Full Moon but if it work’s for ya, you go for it!
Cleanse your home, grab your sage and have a little cleansing party, whack the music up full blast and sage the old vibes away!
Write a list of what you want to achieve, visual goals are a fantastic way to keep on track. Place your list somewhere you can access it and feel free to pop some motivational crystals on top of it. Tigers Eye for motivation, Citrine, Fool’s Gold and Green Aventurine for Abundance. Rose Quartz for love, Amethyst for peace – Go with whatever works for you!!
You might feel re-energized today, you might feel a little off because it’s so dark and in the dark we have to look at the shadow side (negative side of things) but like all things this too shall pass, whatever your vibes are why not try to uplift them with some good vibes, good music and forward planning.
Enjoy the New Moon, I will be!
