New Moon

Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.

– Mark Twain

The New Moon is the beginning of the lunar cycle, falling in the same sign as the current zodiac season. It occurs when the Moon is sandwiched between the Sun and Earth in a straight line. A “moonwich,” if you will. In essence, the back of the Moon is lit and she becomes invisible from our view on Earth.

When the Moon is dark in the sky, you rely on your three-dimensional senses to navigate your life. Like the Crone Moon Goddess, you learn to see in the dark. The New Moon is a fertile time to let your physical sensations and intuition guide your intention setting for the entire lunar cycle.
