Hello so today it felt appropriate to have a follow up from my post Celebrating The Full Moon and talk about the new moon which is tonight in the star sign, Libra which is all happening during the current Mercury retrograde!
So we all know about the full moon but I don’t think many realise how important the new moon is also. The new moon is a lunar event that takes place when the sun is aligned with the moon, this happens at least 12 times a year and can also be known as the dark moon. The same as the full moon many people believe the new moon last around three days. I personally believe day 1 is the day before, day 2 is the day of the lunar event, and day 3 is the day after but I’m sure many spiritual practitioners and astrologist would disagree with me but it is a personal opinion that everyone has too decide for themselves.
The new moon this month is during the Mercury retrograde, in the zodiac sign of Libra which is ruled by the element of air. This moon has some strong Mars energy this month which means that you may have some inner conflict on trying too balance home, work, and outdoors. Mars is all about going out exploring and just being in nature, so you may find yourself struggling for the next couple of days on trying to balance these and still be happy and be doing what makes you happy. Libra is the element of air represents mind and body, so you may find yourself wanting to speak your mind and manifesting what you want in life currently.
How to celebrate this month? There are many different ways such as meditation, manifestation, spell work, a nature walk or jus sit outside and watch the stars. Some other more practical things for those who wants to manifest results from this new moon is too sit and really think about what you want to see happening for you in the next month and write it all down, sit with it for a minute until you truly believe it and then burn it to send into the universe. I also suggest maybe buying a crystal grid to help you manifest, for those who don’t know it is a hexagonal grid with zodiac on it. You place your crystals where you feel they should be and place your piece of paper with intentions underneath and just sit with this and manifest. Everyone has there own preference on how to celebrate but it’s completely up to you and what you want out of life at the time.
The new moon is about new beginnings and setting you intentions going into the next full moon. It’s a time to focus on what you want out of life and anything you want to begin you can manifest and start with positive energy.
So I’m sorry if this was a short post and maybe a little messy in places but I hope this helps anyone who maybe wants to learn more or maybe didn’t realise how important the new moon is!
Happy new moon and thank you for reading.
