What's the fuss over a New Moon, anyway? Every 29 days the Moon enters a new cycle. It often seems contradictory that on a day of a New Moon we see the dark shadow of it's face instead of a vibrant one. It's not that the Moon isn't shining, it is.

But the brightest side is turned away from Earth. It's as if the Moon has turned it's back on the human race and has decided to withhold it's light from us. That isn't true, but we definitely can see why someone could get that impression.

Why is the cycle of a New Moon important? The Moon, as Earth's only satellite plays a vital role in our lives. It governs the tide, it helps plants grow. When the Moon is full, there's more crime, when it's in a Super Moon phase, we have more light than we even need.

The Moon's cycle is used for farming, helping to reveal the time of night. It's vibrancy helps new born sea turtles to find the sea. 

What are ideal tasks to do during the new moon cycle? The New Moon Cycle can be treated like a mini press on the restart button. It's a good practice to reevaluate where you are in your season of life.

How should you prepare your mind for the energy of a fresh start?

Begin by thinking about what you'd like to change, start, or finish during the next moon phase which will be in the zodiac sign of Aquarius. 

  • Reflect on your previously held beliefs or goals and see if they are working for you.
  • If not, change something. Pivot and make a modification that helps you to improve the way you are doing things. 
  • Some people like to light a candle or an incense on the night before and the day of a New Moon to help them sense the changes that are coming. 
  • You can take a journal and write down what dreams you've yet to fulfill and what you'd like to see happen during the next month. 
  • Keep things simple and doable.
  • Set a mental intention. Take time to pray.
  • Focus your prayers on your self and not try to use this time to control anyone. 
  • Writing things down will help to make this experience.
  • Be thankful. Give thanks for what you already have.
  • Relax. Have faith that the universe has heard your prayers.
  • Get grounded in your spirit. Don't use this time for worry.
  • Expect miracles. Be attentive to your prayer time early. 

Astrology takeaway:

A new beginning is in your hands. You don't have to wait for a new year. That's way to long! Since it takes 28 days to start a new habit, we have a chance to begin again. Doesn't it seem coincidental that the New Moon begins every 29 days? It's the universe's way of caring for your needs and to guide you to what the right time to change things up.

Activities that are good for today's energy forecast include starting new projects, making important changes, scheduling appointments, and business networking meetings. 

Where your zodiac sign's house is positioned on the astrology zodiac wheel, and where the planets are positioned at that time, your energy and reaction to that placement may be different than someone else.

Zodiac signs who get a lucky boost of energy are Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces — Capricorn has a double power day!
