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.

Ephemeris

An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
