The New Moon is one of the best known and best researched astrological phenomena. It occurs every month when the Moon reaches close to the same degree of the zodiac as the Sun, and therefore cannot be seen. When you look at images of a Solar Eclipse in the future, please note that this is also considered by astrology to be a New Moon, but the alignment of the Sun, Moon and Earth are much closer to exact.
A New Moon performs as its name implies; the Moon is reborn in the night sky and grows nightly until it reaches the Full Moon phase. It can cause tides not only in the oceans, but also in the atmosphere. It makes changes in Earth’s magnetic field, and actually moves the crust of the Earth.
The New Moon affects everyone on a regular basis. The reason most people don’t talk about it is because it presents itself in our circumstances in a fairly unnoticeable way. Plus, it affects an entire Lunar month of four weeks (and a little more) and according to the current placements of the planets, it will have different affects in every sign every year.
The overall theme of the New Moon in Sagittarius is “adventurism” and is seen in political behavior, space exploration and the like. People may seem to be bolder, as if they were taking extrovert pills make them more outgoing. Many will make mistakes due to overconfidence, impulsive behavior or poor planning.
The New Moon affects each of us differently, according to the house, or Zodiac sign, where it’s located. Sometimes it has special connections to one or more planets, but this one does not. So let’s find out what area of your life the archer is targeting with his arrows!
