New Moon Spiritual Meaning And Intentions


The New Moon is the start of a new lunar cycle and appears as a very thin and delicate crescent in the sky.

A common question about the New Moon is, how do I make New Moon water or set intentions when the New Moon isn’t visible?

Sometimes the New Moon is below the horizon or such a faint sliver that it’s hard to see. However, it’s still there! The New Moon still affects the tides, and its energy will always be prevalent even if you can’t see it.

The New Moon’s spiritual meaning symbolizes a very peaceful and tranquil moment in the lunar cycle. It’s a time of new beginnings and renewal.

The New Moon is a reset and a chance to start again, giving you a clean slate. This is why the New Moon is associated with manifestation work and intention setting.

(1 Opinion) The New Moon in Taurus of May 2023 Will Bring You Luck in Love & Money—Here’s How

Although full moons tend to get all the credit, new moons are what sets everything in motion. When the new moon in Taurus of May 2023 takes place, it will give you an opportunity to create distance from the past and begin something different.

A new moon always takes place when the moon—ruler of your inner world—joins forces with the sun—ruler of your external world—aligning the energy and forging the foundation needed to embark on your next journey. Whatever you start on the new moon reaches culmination by the full moon, showing you the consequences of your decisions and the results of your hard work. Although your energy may feel a bit lower during the new moon, it’s only encouraging you to look inward and reflect on what’s come and gone. And though your reflection, you are guided to set an intention that will guide you through whatever comes next.

However, not all new moons are created equally, and the upcoming new moon on May 19 at exactly 11:53 a.m. ET packs a real punch. If you’re willing to lay down the groundwork for something that has the potential for longterm gain, now is the time to do it. Eclipse season and Mercury retrograde are officially behind us, making this a beautiful time to begin manifesting the future you’ve always desired. Tell the Universe what you want to achieve, show up to do your part and allow the moon to take care of the rest. Here’s why this upcoming new moon is more special than most: please click here to finishing read this article

(1 Opinion) Here’s How To Harness The May Full Moon’s Divine Feminine Energy

Mercury Retrograde finally ended on May 14, which means you’ve made it through the chaotic period (relatively) unscathed. The May new moon arrives on May 19 at 11:53 a.m. ET with tons of opportunities in tow, so you can officially leave all the negativity behind for good. This lunar event is all about fresh starts, after all — but to effectively harness its energy, you’ll need to be tuned into the spiritual meaning of the May 2023 new moon so you can kick off your next chapter the right way.

Because new moons mark the first phase of the monthly moon cycle, they’re known for bringing abundance in the form of new beginnings. Thanks to the conjunction that occurs between the moon and the sun during this time, you’re able to plant seeds for your future, set personal intentions, and connect with your intuition. Not only that, but the May new moon is also rising in the practical and grounded sign of Taurus, so don’t be surprised if you’re suddenly flooded with stability in your work, relationships, and more.

Ahead, astrologer Brilla Samay shares what you need to know about the significance of the May new moon so you can use its energy to your benefit.

What’s The Spiritual Meaning Of The May New Moon?

Samay describes the May 2023 new moon as embodying the “essence of the divine feminine energy.” If you didn’t know, the divine feminine is thought to be a part of our consciousness where we access qualities such as intuition and receptivity. New moons are typically tied to intuition to begin with, but what separates this lunar event from the rest is that it holds a “profound spiritual significance in terms of ancestral connection,” says Samay.

“[The May new moon] serves as a conduit between the past, present, and future, providing a sacred space to honor our ancestors and receive guidance from their wisdom,” the astrologer explains. “It also invites us to deepen our connection with the earth and assume the role of stewards of the planet.”

The New Moon in Aries of March 2023 Is Bursting With Lucky and Motivating Energy—Here’s How to Use It


Since the moon rules over your emotions and inner world, the new moon in Aries of March 2023 will take you along for a wild and unforgettable ride. How you start this adventure is entirely up to you, and the decisions you make now could have ramifications that ripple over the next few months.

Although the new moon is nowhere to be seen, it’s doing a lot of work behind the scenes. It’s during this phase of the 28-day lunar cycle that the moon disappears from the sky and retreats beneath the curtain of night, where it can renew itself before embarking on the next journey.

Taking place on March 21 at 1:23 p.m. ET, this new moon takes place just one day after the sun enters Aries and launches the beginning of spring. Not only does this mean flowers are blooming and the days are lengthening, but it also means we’re all turning the page and embracing a new astrological calendar. That’s right—the real “New Year” doesn’t take place until March 20, because astrology follows the lunar calendar, not the 365-day Gregorian calendar that we’ve all come to know and follow.

That makes this particular new moon incredibly special. Not only are there several numerological coincidences surrounding this new moon and adding to its fatefulness, but this also represents a galvanizing and rejuvenating shift in our social and spiritual energy. If you’ve been feeling extra sleepy as the sun wraps up its tour through dreamy and divine Pisces, now’s the time to wake up and smell the coffee. The new moon in Aries has arrived and it’s rebooting your system and kickstarting a new chapter in your life. Here’s what you need to know:

The New Moon in Aries of March 2023, Explained

This new moon takes place in courageous, competitive and compassionate Aries, landing at exactly 0 degrees and emphasizing just now much of a new beginning this really is. Forget what happened yesterday, because the future is yours to create! In astrology, degree 0 indicates the most pure and distilled expression of the zodiac sign in question. And because this new moon rises in Aries—the first sign in the zodiac—you can expect this new moon to reveal clues as to what the future might hold. After all, whatever you start now will manifest over the course of the next six months, reaching a conclusion by the full moon in Aries, which takes place on September 29. This new moon also rises at 1:23, which is a very good sign in numerology and indicates that we are embracing an upward climb.

The new moon in Aries takes place on March 21 at 1:23 p.m. ET.

Because this new moon takes place in Aries, the planet ruling over this new moon is Mars in Gemini. In astrology, Mars is the planet of power, motivation, ambition sexuality, passion, aggression and of course, conflict. Because this new moon is also squaring off with Mars, this lunation is jam-packed with potent energy that’s ready to burst. Sometimes, things begin soft and subtle, gradually introducing you to this new era. Sometimes, things begin with a bang, shocking you out of your stupor and forcing you to get with the program immediately. And although things will start to move *very* fast, this new moon will remind you that you are more than capable of not just keeping up with the pace, but facilitating it.

7 Ways To Harness The Emotionally Transformative New Moon Coming Our Way

Does your soul need soothing? The 2022 Pisces new moon (on March 2 at 12:34 p.m. EST) opens the floodgates of healing and self-compassion. It also reveals what’s simmering beneath the surface.

We can’t lie, the last couple of weeks have been frightening and turbulent, as far as world events go. Global Jupiter has taken up residence in Pisces, which has dredged some scary “sediment” to the surface. If you’ve been struggling to find a sense of hope or meaning while the threat of world war looms, you are not alone.

The 2022 Pisces new moon won’t solve the horrors in Ukraine, but it can provide you with some self-soothing techniques in the face of a situation that is beyond what you as an individual can control.

Emotions are the domain of the watery sign of the Fish, and the 2022 Pisces new moon provides both a reflecting pool and a chance to plunge into the depths of your own feelings. From that open state, divine guidance may flow in.

Here are seven ways to “shield your field” at the 2022 Pisces New Moon:

1. Scan your subconscious.

1 February 2022 Daily Correspondence Digest for the Southern Hemisphere’s Moon Phase and Planetary Positions

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious, you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else, you know was on the date the person was born.


Today and tonight the Moon will be in a New Moon phase. During this phase the Moon is too close to the sun in the sky to be visible. The moon rises and sets with the sun and is not present in the night sky. Because of this the night sky is darker and an excellent time to view other celestial objects. Like the Full Moon, a New Moon happens at a very specific time when the sun and moon have the same ecliptic longitude and it can be measured down to the second it occurs.

Visit the February 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s New Moon Phase

The New Moon on February 1 has an illumination of 0%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On February 1 the Moon is 0.3 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

The 8 Lunar Phases

There are 8 lunar phases the Moon goes through in its 29.53 days lunar cycle. The 4 major Moon phases are Full Moon, New Moon, First Quarter and Last Quarter.
