What happens on a new moon?
What can occur during a new moon?
With a whole heap of sparkly new moon energy for the taking, you can use this time to visualize, set intentions and gather energy for what’s to come. Rather than focus on the doing at this time, it’s better to focus on the planning and the dreaming. So if you are keen to plan a project or start making goals for the future, now is the time to create that awesome roadmap of how you are going to get there.
Creating rituals at the new moons will allow you to tune into your inner world and use the energies available to manifest in the external world. While it might sound woo-woo, it’s not really that “out there” if you consider our ancestors planted, hunted, fished, and traveled by the seasons and cycles of the moon.
Does a new moon happen every month?
Just like the full moon, every month we have a new moon, which makes it great for monthly self-care planning. A new moon occurs when the moon is between the earth and the sun, which is the time when the brighter side of the moon is facing away from the earth.
The new moon is the first phase of the eight lunar phases, followed by the phases; waxing, full moon and then waning before the end of the cycle and another new moon begins again.
How long does the new moon last?
The new moon usually lasts for 6-7 days, before it begins the waxing phase.
What day is the next new moon?
The next new moon is on Tuesday, May 11th, 2021.
Does new moon mean no moon?
Although the new moon may appear almost invisible, it’s certainly not a case of new moon, no moon and as such, a very small sliver of crescent can often still be seen.
Is the new moon good luck?
Legend has it that the new moon can indeed offer a touch of good luck for any new beginnings during this time such as new jobs and new house moves.
Does the new moon affect mood?
The New Moon often affects your mood, because its magnified energy will amplify your existing emotions. This can prove to be a positive effect of the shift, however, as it provides a time for reflection.
How do you do a new moon ritual? 🌙
Put your manifesting skills to the test with some of my favorite rituals that can easily be done from home:
Create a Sacred Space
Find a calm place to sit, turn on some relaxing tunes and surround yourself with special items that mean a lot to you.
Clear all the leftover energy around you by lighting a candle, burning sage and imagine any negative energies washing away.
Allow yourself to become fully present in the moment, focusing on your breathing and feeling every inch of your body as you inhale and exhale.
Make the Connection
Get in touch with Mother Earth by holding your chosen crystal close, lighting a candle, burning sage or intense and filling a bowl of water with salt.
Set the Intention
Write in your journal and take the time to reflect. Think about what you would like to manifest for this moon cycle. Write it down and pass it through a smudge or incense. Be specific and keep your list short so you can spend more energy on attracting one thing at a time.
Spend time meditating and visualizing each step that you’ll take to get to where you need to be. How will you reach your new goals? See yourself taking action and doing it.
Feel your intentions in your body, sit with them and be open to how it feels. Experience those feelings as has already happened, be with it and feel it deeply within.
Make it Be
Release your desires to the universe, let it hear you whilst breathing in the gratitude in your heart. Declare to the universe out loud ‘I am ready to receive and so it is!”.
What does the new moon mean?
Whether you’ve got old emotions flowing up to be released or you feel a little scattered. Remember that all things happen for a reason and in perfect timing.
Try to create more balance and harmony.
You’re finally coming into a place of wholeness where you feel like you can begin a new adventure with a fresh perspective.
