What is the New Moon?
Astronomically, a New Moon happens when our Moon is hidden from the Sun by the position of the Earth. The Moon receives no light from the Sun during the 3 day cycle of the New Moon period.
Astrologically, the New Moon represents the start of new cycles in life, especially cycles that pertain to our emotional growth. During the 3-day New Moon period, certain placements in our natal chart are activated by New Moon aspects. These aspects can inform us as to how to use the current lunar cycle in our intention-setting and other magick.
The theme of the Libra New Moon cycle (from September 28 - October 25 in 2019) is BALANCE.
All living organisms require a healthy balance of energy input and output (homeostasis) in order to do the work of growing. Without balance, we are too distracted by urgent needs not being met to have the capacity for real growth. During the Libra New Moon cycle, we can assess our own level of homeostasis, of energy balance.
Where are we giving more than we are receiving?
