The New Moon is a time of renewal and starting new projects. It symbolizes birth and the start of a new cycle. This is a time for planting crops that grow above the ground. The first week of the cylce is good for crops with outside seeds. The second week is better for crops with inner seeds.

Consciousness is subjective and self-centered during the New Moon, as the focus is on expansion, self-centered gain, and the maximization of one’s potential.

The New Moon starts the Waxing cycle, as the Moon will now spend two weeks growing in light from no light to all light at the Full Moon. This is a yang or masculine cycle which prompts exploration, trips, the going out or leaving one’s center. The imagination rules and often soars without reason. As such, it often leads to immature mars-like actions that have to be resolved later during the Waning Cycle.

Promises and Resolutions can be made,- new committments begun. The sign the New Moon occurs in, its nature, element and mode will determine the kind of actions and consciousness necessary to bring fresh hopes to fruition.

The Full Moon is a time of fulfillment when life must be seen objectively. It marks the beginning of the return cycle from all that went forth at the New Moon. Thus for good or bad, it reaps the actions of the previous two weeks.

This is a time for resolving conflict, accepting the waning consciousness of the cycle to come and seeing life more realistically than the subjectivity of the New Moon cycle. Pruning, house cleaning, reorganization of one’s immediate environment as well as purpose, are propitious during this time.

Although it is not considered good to plant on the day of the Full Moon itself, below ground root crops may be planted after the Full Moon during the waning cycle.

The sign the Full Moon occurs in, its nature, element and mode will determine the kind of actions and consciousness necessary to come to terms with one’s karmic reality (the objective effects of one’s actions).
