New Moon

“Turn to the spiritual meaning of the moon phases to connect to the rhythms and cycles outside of the frantic pace of modern living.

As life moves increasingly online and away from nature, it is becoming more important to turn to the spiritual meaning of the moon phases as a way to connect to rhythms and cycles outside of the often frantic pace of modern living.

It’s easy to become unmoored in an era of zoom meetings, remote work, and the constant onslaught of social media. Tapping into the cycles of nature can be a potent reminder that there are powerful forces that continue on, even as change swirls around you. If you live in a city, it can feel difficult to feel that connection, but the moon is always in the sky. Turn to the spiritual meaning of moon phases as a source of connection to something deeper.

Each moon phase brings its own spiritual meaning and the opportunity to create rituals and practices that harness the energy of that unique phase.

New Moon: A Time to Pause

The darkness of a new moon is a time for reflection and exploring the unseen. Often thought of as a feminine moon phase, its spiritual meaning is a call for presence. In being fully present you can explore your deepest desires and heartfelt wishes that sometimes get lost in the flurry of so much doing.

Bring a quiet sense of intention and presence as you allow yourself to rest, spend some time journaling and exploring what is in your heart of hearts. Ask yourself the question, “What do I most want to bring forward in my life right now? How do I want to be in my relationships, my work, and with myself?”
Answering these questions can help you understand where you will want to spend your energy throughout the moon cycle.

Give yourself extra time in meditation or walking mindfully in nature. Go outside and soak in the energy of the new moon, giving thoughtful appreciation of the beauty of darkness. Enjoy the stars that can be seen when the moon is hidden in shadow.”
