What is the New Moon and what role does it play?
A new moon is something that we experience every month as the moon orbits the earth. At the beginning of the month we experience the New Moon.
The new moon signifies a cycle of energy that we experience. Because the Earth, the sun, and the moon are all perfectly in line, the tides are at their highest and the lowest during both the full and new moon. Both of these moons are the most defining phases of the lunar (moon) cycle and affect the water on planet earth.
Because we are made up of 90% water, we are affected through these cycles by the change in our water body. This stunning energy is all about completion and the new moon signals a new beginning.
As the moon and earth circle around one another, it carries with it different energies. These energies are what control our emotions and human existence.
The new moon is a new birth. It brings new energies with it and it allows us to start this month long cycle over again with new beliefs, new encouragement, and new support.
Each cycle we are reincarnated. Our souls are filled with strength, ideas, power, and courage as the new moon builds and then as it dissipates, we are relieved of that power. It’s during a new moon that we can ruminate on our decisions, on our experiences, and rejuvenate ourselves so that we can start all over again.
The new moon is giving us a second chance. Every month we are given a new chance to move forward and align with oneself. Think of all the mistakes or lessons you have to learn from the new moon to the full moon, those needed to happen and now on the day of the new moon you have a restart.
You get to leave those experiences in the past and move forward to the future. The new moon is a perfect time to meditate, journal, organize, and plan your next move. The new moon’s purifying energy is there to aid you in your reflection.
It is always a good idea on a new moon to write down your intentions for the upcoming month and ask the universe for assistance in realizing them. Banishing the old and moving on are always best if done on the new moon.
Here is a simple New Moon Ritual:
Meditation is also a big component in leveraging the lunar cycles and harnessing the energy that is circulating around planet earth, to develop and deepen your Meditation practice check out The Mindful Meditation E-Book.
Meditation allows you to be present and let go of the stuff that no longer serves you.
Capitalizing on the New Moon is a really great way to sit down and bring awareness to the things that no longer serve you. Writing down what you want to release is a powerful exercise that allows you to leave those thoughts and energies in the past.
I can’t wait to hear about your New Moon Ritual and what things you released.
The New Moon arrives on Saturday May 4th at 4pm PST. This new moon is in Taurus.
