New moons

I came across this chart that maybe is a fun way to see what different moon signs are and to see if what comes up is how you see ones you know.

When I went back to this chart today, I realized that it was made using the new moon dates not the full moon ones and I wondered if this would change what moon signs would come up. I tried this using a birthdate of one I know, and who knew their moon sign when using a time of a full moon and it did not come up differently:) so I looked up New Moon meanings.

I have been following the little links that they have highlighted as well, and I find I really like the meanings to the words they use, conjunction, sun, crescent, (the second meaning, not the one of the wrench:)) and even in the meanings of these words there are so many other links and meanings that follow as well. It feels again to me like seeing litte bits of a much larger image being painted or penned, and it is in this bigger image I feel that change or newness will always occur.

“In astronomical terminology, the New Moon is the lunar phase that occurs when the Moon, in its monthly orbital motion around Earth, lies between Earth and the Sun, and is therefore in conjunction with the Sun as seen from Earth. At this time, the illuminated half of the Moon faces directly toward the Sun, and the dark or unilluminated portion of the Moon faces directly toward Earth, so that the Moon is invisible as seen from Earth.New Moon is often considered to occur at the time of the appearance of the first visible crescent of the Moon, after conjunction with the Sun. This takes place over the western horizon in a brief period between sunset and moonset, and therefore the precise time and even the date of the appearance of the New Moon by this definition will be influenced by the geographical location of the observer. The astronomical New Moon, sometimes known as the dark moon to avoid confusion, occurs by definition at the moment of conjunction in ecliptic longitude with the Sun, when the Moon is invisible from the Earth. This moment is unique and does not depend on location, and under certain circumstances it may be coincident with a solar eclipse.”

  1. Hi {{tumel}}…

    Here’s a link you may enjoy. It’s a free download….shareware

    The moon will move through all 12 signs every 28 days. It is said to be veiling another planet…sometimes veiling Vulcan, sometimes Uranus. Either way, it’s about our Soul’s Heritage and our refinement.

  2. I am very thankful in what you share and write about Sue Ann, including about our souls heritage, and that there is such a thing as Esoteric Astrology. I find myself so drawn to this and in wondering why, I find myself going about the internet sometimes reading about things that come up when I am thinking of it, like these New Moons and Soul mates:)

  3. Sue Ann, thank you so much for this link. I have downloaded it and have been playing with it, it is fun! and interesting:) I have been using only my own birthdate and that of my sons for now because I am a bit curious about these souls heritage’s :) but was surprised to see we all have the same moon sign. Now I am curious about the positions and the planets that came up as well and what they mean, and finding out the details, like the longitude and latitude to input as well.

  4. lol (winking) then let me throw in something you may find fun…My sun is 3 degrees 29 minutes Taurus.

    The longitudes and latitudes have to do with time zones, so if you know your time zone and how far it is from Greenwich, then that should set the local mean time.
