New Moon - (or Dark Moon) rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. Astrologically, the Sun and Moon are in conjunction. Because the Sun's light overpowers the nearby Moon in the day, and the Moon is on the other side of the Earth with the Sun at night, she is not visible in the sky at all.  The New Moon is like a SEED planted in the earth. We cannot see her but she is ready to grow, full of potential and energy for her new journey.  Women who were born during the new moon phase are impulsive, passionate and intuitive. They are risk takers and pioneers.  The New Moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle. Keywords for the New phase are: beginning, birth, emergence, projection, and clarity. It is the time in a cycle that you are stimulated to take a new action. During this phase the new cycle is being seeded by your vision, inner and outer. VISUALIZE your goals for the 29.6-day cycle ahead.

Vine Moon - Muin - M   "Wine is the true drink of poets," says Robert Graves, who found out that its original purpose was holy. The transformed grape induces altered states that give birth to poetic revelation and divine ecstasy. Today we know wine as a social ritual, and have almost lost its ancient uses. Muin is the vintage moon, a time of joy, exhilaration, and wrath. It is also the second harvest moon, containing the Autumn Equinox, often called the Witches' Thanksgiving.
[From: "Ariadne's Thread" by Shekhinah Mountainwater]
