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.”
