New Moon Signs Astrology Calendar Offers Insight

Interpreting the New Moon astrological phases can point to how the moon's significant influences can effect you during the month. We can receive inspiration and guidance to renew, revise, and recharge ourselves and the goals and dreams that we each possess. Inspired by "New Moon Astrology" by Jan Spiller, she shares with readers the influence of the New Moon power each month.

The moon changes astrological signs approximately every two days. However, when the moon exactly conjuncts the sun (shares it's astrological degree), it is no longer visible in the sky and at this point in the lunar cycle it is called a "New Moon". This occurs once every month (in rare instances, twice) and marks the beginning of a new monthly astrological cycle.

The new moon astrology signifies a start of a new personal cycle each month. It's a time to renew or revise our goals, reach for what we wish for most and renew ourselves. When setting goals or aspiring towards our dreams and desires it is important to keep a few things in mind. First of all, our wishes can only involve ourselves. We cannot try to change others, only our attitudes towards those people, in hopes that they will respond favorably to us. Another important aspect of this process is to meditate on the qualities of the sign that the new moon is occurring in. These astrological qualities will give us powerful hints on what to strive for, and how to approach or strategize towards what we want to accomplish. It is a good idea to set approximately 10 goals or wishes each month. Jan Spiller also suggests that you do not combine several wishes into one wish! Keep your thoughts clear and separate, and write them down each month. We recommend a special notebook or journal exclusively used for this purpose.

Visualize Your Wishes First

It is often best not to include a wish unless you can clearly visualize it coming into fruition within your imagination. If not, there may be preliminary steps you need to take first, so instead, try visualizing these. Trust your feelings and intuition in this process- you will know instinctively what feels right. Some wishes become realized soon after the new moon. Others are more resistant and can take many months. Keep repeating wishes each month until they begin coming true as long as you continue to believe that they are right for you. When things in your life such as people, events, and your own attitudes begin to "shift", welcome this new change as evidence that your life is changing as a result of your positive intentions. Follow along each month reading the reflections on the new moon based on the sign it moves into to help you in your own process. Using the New Moon power in such a way is Astrology in action.
