New Moons tend to make us want to plant new seeds and start afresh. But we are essentially working blind however, without the illumination of the Sun’s wisdom. With a New Moon we are working 100% on our instincts, so any decisions made at this time will be from habitual drives and infantile cravings which may not be in our best interests.
Yes we should listen to our body, because the more we tune into it, the more we can tell the difference between a wounded ancestor who is crying out for attention and a genuine gut-feeling that is one’s trusted intuition. Otherwise discernment is needed, because the guidance of the Sun (the light of truth) is missing at the New Moon and one may easily be hoodwinked.
A New Moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is furthest from the earth and this frees the imagination from material limits. Thought-seeds planted at the New Moon will grow, so be careful what you wish for! A Solar Eclipse is like a really powerful reboot. The blinding light of the Sun is blocked for just enough time to get a new perspective. It is mind-altering and refreshing, but it can turn your world upside down too.
