What exactly happens during the period of a New Moon? The New Moon is an invisible phase for us on Earth, as, during this time, the Moon is directly located between the Earth and the Sun, which makes the illuminated side of the Moon hidden from us. It can be quite difficult to observe the New Moon, as, during this phase, the Moon is very close to the Sun. Since the illuminated side falls towards the Sun, the Moon becomes invisible at night, and only starts appearing little by little with each passing day.
Even though the New Moon is invisible in the sky, this phase of the Moon marks the start of a new lunar cycle. This is why astrologers believe that, along with a new Moon cycle, a New Moon can also represent a new start in our personal lives.
Since a New Moon symbolizes a new start, it can be the perfect time for you to start something new - a new project, a new business, a new job, and even shifting into a new home.
The New Moon favors fresh starts, and it can be a great time to lay the groundwork and set things in motion for your new idea during this period. The rewards for the seeds sown during a New Moon, start showing even as early as 15 days after the New Moon, and during the bright illumination of the Full Moon. The effects of a New Moon occur on a more subtle level, and so are believed to take longer to manifest, than those during a Full Moon, where one is more aware of the pull and energy of the Moon.
