Every new Moon is a chance to initiate projects, relationships, and just about anything else you want to start.
Remember that the new Moon is strongest when it starts, and its power lessens with each passing day over the next couple of weeks until the full Moon.
If you want to use new Moons most effectively, time your "fresh starts" as close to the new Moon as possible within the first several days after each new Moon happens. Use the times as well as the dates listed in the chart above to fine tune your timing.
Also, pay attention to the sign of the new Moon and focus on activities, people, and areas of life linked with the zodiac sign. With a Capricorn new Moon, for instance, look to your career, practical matters of all kinds, and powerful people associated with large enterprises.
A couple of times a year, we have a new Moon that arrives with an eclipse.
In all cases, these special new Moons bring solar eclipses. At these times, the Sun, Moon, and Earth line up exactly such that the Moon temporarily blocks the light from (or eclipses) the Sun.
These times can bring turning points, when a new opportunity enters your life. They can be quite powerful, depending on other factors in your birth chart and whether the Moon's zodiac sign at the time plays a key role in your astrology.
In 2022, we'll experience two partial solar eclipses: April 30 in Taurus and October 25 in Scorpio. If you are a Taurus or Scorpio (or a Leo or Aquarius), you could see significant shifts this year that could propel you into the future. Watch what happens around these dates and seize opportunities that come your way.
What's your zodiac sign? The new Moon that occurs in that same sign is a special moment each year to begin just about anything of particular importance or interest to you.
