What does a New Moon mean?

To begin, let me clarify the meaning of a new moon. A new moon marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle. This is a time of introspection, new intentions and starting new projects. During the new moon, the moon is invisible from Earth; it stands between the earth and the sun and reflects no light. This symbolizes a fresh start, planting seeds for the future.

New Moon according to Western Astrology has a different approach than Vedic Astrology. I write about both Western and Vedic astrology. In my Vedic Astrology consultations, I provide insight into the birth chart according to Vedic Astrology. The ascendant and moon sign are more central here.

In Vedic Astrology, a different zodiac sign takes center stage during this New Moon and a Nakshatra. In Vedic Astrology, the New Moon is also called ‘Amavasya’. This is the Ashadha Amavasya in July.

Meaning Ashadha Amavasya

Ashadha Amavasya, also known as the day of the new moon in the Hindu lunar month of Ashadha (usually falling in June-July), has significant spiritual and cultural importance. This day is often associated with rituals and prayers focused on ancestors, known as ‘Pitru Tarpan’ and ‘Shradh’. It is believed that performing these rituals on Ashadha Amavasya can provide peace and liberation to the souls of deceased relatives, thereby granting blessings and relieving familial karmic debts.

Additionally, this new moon is seen as an ideal time for introspection, meditation and the search for divine grace, as the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds is thinner, allowing for deeper spiritual practices and inner cleansing.
