New Moon

Definition of New Moon

When the moon appears as just a sliver in the sky, this is called a “New Moon”. Earth’s Moon is always in motion. It spends approximately 28 days travelling through each of the Zodiac signs. As it does, depending on where it is in relation to the Sun on any given day, it carries a certain amount of light. During a New Moon, that amount of light is minimal.

The New Moon period of every month is an opportunity for new beginnings. During every New Moon period, focus on the new beginnings that you want to manifest in your life over the next 28 days.

TERM OF THE DAY

Gibbous

When someone says the moon is gibbous, it means that more than 50% of the moon is illuminated in the sky. This happens when the moon is moving towards a full moon and after the full moon when we are approaching a new moon.
