New Moon Energy
For around one week a month, we have New Moon Energy. What this means is that for the first couple of days of this week you may feel a little unsettled as you adjust to this new energy.
But, once you do find your feet again, this can be a promising time. New Moons are all about fresh starts, setting your intention as to how you will move forward from your current position and “planting seeds” to grow as the New Moon does. It’s my absolute favourite Moon, full of promise and a chance to start again on a blank page.
What to do in the New Moon Energy?
Questions to ask yourself at a New Moon:
- Where in my life could I “start again”?
- What can I do now to start over in this area of my life?
- When will be the best time to act on these intentions?
- How can I prepare to give myself the best opportunity of progressing in this area of my life at the right time?
If you did the groundwork at the Last Quarter Moon of reflecting and assessing progress to date, you will have a strong foundation to begin answering these queries.
Apply this Energy to the Sign the Moon is in this Month
We also have to consider which of the Signs the Moon is “in” – this also changes once a month/approximately every 28 days and currently is in the sign of Gemini, the Twins. Gemini is an Air sign (along with its sister signs of Libra and Aquarius), which is associated with the intellect, the mind, thoughts and communication.
Because of this, this can be an excellent time to speak to others before starting a new venture, relationship, job opportunity or making a decision, with a keen emphasis on listening to someone rather than it being you doing all the talking. You don’t have to take their advice but it may help you think about your query on this new start in a different way that you might otherwise not consider.
Once you have your idea, it promises to be an explosive one – if you’ve done the groundwork and talked and listened to others first! Gemini and new thoughts or ideas tend to have something of the “light-bulb” or “eureka” moment about them; an epiphany, a stroke of genius. Then you can start your preparations to put your plans into action at the best time astrologically, the First Quarter Moon.
Gemini is also about fun and spontaneity, moments of unexpected laughs and enjoyment so get out and do things on the spur of the moment. With your “new ideas”, be flexible and remember that nothing is set in stone; you can change your mind if you want to if you later discover a different and better way to achieve your desires. Just leave yourself plenty of room to manoeuvre and change your mind at this time and this energy can be very fun and exciting.
