New Moon Meaning & Symbolism
In astronomy, a new moon occurs every 29.5 days and marks the first lunar phase, representing the beginning of a new lunar cycle. Generally, there is one new moon every month, though sometimes, there will be two; this rare second new moon of the month is called a black moon. (A black moon occurs once every 32 months.)
In many ways, the new moon can be viewed as a cosmic reset. Just as the moon seems to turn inward, so do we. The new moon is the perfect time for getting in touch with your inner self and gauging where you are and what you want with your life.
What do you truly desire? What dreams have been planted in your heart? What goals do you want to achieve over the next month? Do you possess any limiting beliefs that you want to release?
These are just some of the questions you can begin to ask yourself as you embrace the revitalizing energy of the new moon.
The new moon represents fresh starts and new beginnings. You can imagine that you have a blank canvas in front of you, and you get to paint your future with anything and everything you desire in this life.
Here are some ideal new moon practices for goal-setting, connecting with your inner self, and manifesting your dreams:
- Write down your goals and intentions.
- Visualize yourself planting your intentions in the earth.
- Visualize the dream life you want to create for yourself.
- Get in touch with yourself through journaling. Here are a few sentences you can use to start your new moon journaling:
- “I am releasing . . .”
- “I am setting the intention to . . .”
- “I am manifesting . . .”
- You can also ask yourself: “What does my soul need?”
- Release limiting beliefs, negative thoughts, and anything that doesn’t serve or support your mind, body, and spirit.
- Repeat new moon affirmations. Write down your affirmations and continue to come back to them throughout the lunar cycle.
New Moon Meditation
Find a quiet spot where you won’t be distracted or interrupted. You can use candles, crystals, or essential oils if you wish. Find a position that feels most comfortable for you. You can sit cross-legged on the floor, on a chair with your feet planted on the floor, or laying down on the ground. If you have a meditation table, this is an ideal time to sit in front of it. You might also decide to go outside to connect with the earth.
Close your eyes. Think of three intentions you want to set. These intentions can be as seemingly big or small as you’d like. Imagine that you’re holding three seeds. These seeds represent your intentions. Take the first seed and imagine yourself gently planting it in the earth in front of you. See your dreams coming true in your reality, and feel the positive emotions associated with this dream coming true. Express gratitude to the universe for supporting you in your dreams. Repeat this with the second seed, planting another intention in the earth in front of you. Finally, repeat this process with the third seed.
Once all your intentions have been planted, release them to the universe. Express gratitude, and allow true peace to fill every cell of your being as you know that you are exactly where you are meant to be, and everything is working out perfectly for you.
