The New Moon

This marks the phase of the moon when the light is not visible from Earth, because the side of the moon that is being lit by the sun is not facing us. New moons tend to offer opportunity for growth and present excellent times to start new projects, look to the future with optimism and change direction if you need to.

The Full Moon

This is a time when the Moon is at its most powerful, and emotions run high, people with a heavy water influence and women in general usually feel its influence the most. The full moon is the ideal time for healing, guidance, and completion of tasks. Each full moon is given a different name, depending on when it appears. For example, the Harvest moon is the full moon that appears nearest to the Autumn Equinox, which occurs in late September or early October.

The Moon and the Zodiac

Each new and full moon will occur in a different sign of the zodiac, the sign of the zodiac that the moon is positioned in reveals how the moon's influence will be felt. For example, a full moon in Pisces would offer the ideal opportunity to reflect on our capacity for compassion, intimacy, our connection with a higher force and help us to see beyond the surface of things. A new moon in Taurus would encourage you to revaluate your approach to the things you value most, rediscover your inner wealth and would present ideal money making opportunities.

Full moons tend to highlight receptivity while new moons highlight perceptivity.
