New Moon🌚

In astronomy, a new moon marks the first lunar phase. A new moon symbolises new beginnings. Many people use the energy of a new moon when starting a new project or to achieve their goals. There is a full moon approximately every 30 days. This is the length of time it takes for the Moon to go through one whole lunar phase cycle.

The Moon’s phases and the months of the year are connected – the word ‘month’ takes its root from the word ‘moon’. During April and May this year there will be a ‘supermoon’.

During a New Moon, the Sun and the Moon are aligned. The Sun and the Earth are on opposite sides of the moon. The side of the moon facing the Earth receives no direct sunlight and is lit only by dim sunlight reflected from Earth. The Earth and Sun are at the same celestial longitude. The Moon is only ‘New’ for a moment, when the when the Sun and the Moon are directly aligned in the sky.

The energy of a new moon lasts approximately three days before and after the lunation. The moon phases can affect our mind, body and emotions.

What to do during the new moon:
  • Write down your intentions and what you’re looking to manifest
  • Make a vision board
  • Choose an affirmation
  • Take a new-moon refresher bath; use essential oils, light candles, play your favourite music
  • Light a candle
  • Create a sacred space or meditation station – an intentional space to invite new moon energy into your life
  • Try something new

New Star Sign⛎

According to NASA, there is a new 13th star sign, Ophiuchus, meaning we may have been reading the wrong horoscopes all along (ugh so frustrating😤🤦‍♀️). The ancient Babylonians ignored the fact the sun moves through 13 constellations, not 12, to make a tidy match with the 12-month calendar. Ophiuchus comes from the Greek word meaning ‘serpent bearing’ and is represented by a man wrestling a snake🐍

Below is a list of the new star signs

  • Capricorn: Jan 20 – Feb 15♑
  • Aquarius: Feb 16 – March 11♒
  • Pisces: March 12 – April 18♓
  • Aries: April 19 – May 13♈
  • Taurus: May 14 – June 21♉
  • Gemini: June 22 – July 20♊
  • Cancer: July 21 – Aug 10♋
  • Leo: Aug 11 – Sept 16♌
  • Virgo: Sept 17 – Oct 30♍
  • Libra: Oct 31 – Nov 23♎
  • Scorpio: Nov 24 – Nov 29♏
  • Ophiuchus: Nov 30 – Dec 17⛎
  • Sagittarius: Dec 18 – Jan 20♐

Comment below your star sign is and if you read (or believe) horoscopes 💭✨
