New Moon

The new moon is much more popular than the full moon because of its energies. It represents the contrast to it and initiates the phase of the waxing moon.

New moons are always times when the geocentric ecliptic longitude of the moon and the geocentric ecliptic longitude of the sun are equal.

Eclipital is one of the two celestial coordinates of the so-called ecliptical coordinate system.
In translation, the term geocentric means looking at the event from a hypothetical observer of the center of the Earth.

At new moon the moon reaches its minimum brightness. For this reason, it is also called a void moon.

Astrological explanation

About every 29 1/2 days the new moon takes place. At this time the moon is between the earth and the sun. Thus, the sun and the moon are in conjunction with each other.

The sun brings us energy and the moon regulates our emotions. As soon as both unite, we grow beyond ourselves and feel more powerful than on other days.

New Moon Rituals

As with the full moon, spiritually minded people use the energies of the new moon to enhance personal development.

The universe is asked for appropriate signs during a ritual.

New Moon Wish Fulfillment

One of the most popular rituals is wish fulfillment.

For this, current wishes are written on a piece of paper. Depending on your taste, after the fire, water or earth ritual, they can be burned, put into a flowing body of water or buried in a sacred place.

Some mediums make contact with the spiritual world on the day of the new moon and hand over the wishes to the angels.

New Moon Ceremony

New things are to be invited into life with the new moon. In a ceremony, the topics in life are consciously welcomed, where the desire for change exists.

For this purpose, rooms or altars are decorated, incense is lit or pleasant sounds are played.
