New Moon - The moon is 0-45 degrees directly ahead of the sun,
rising at dawn and setting at sunset. It's age is 0-1 day. Magick should
be performed between dawn and sunset. A new moon's power is
embryonic, you can be assured that the power of any spell cast at
this time goes on. Working with Sun Goddesses such as Sekhmet, Vesta,
or Heartha or the God Ra will increase power. Work for self, carreers,
or romance. This phase is also known as the Dark Moon phase. 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. Those who 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 cycle. Keywords for this
New phase are: beginning, birth, emergence, projection, and clarity. During this
phase the new cycle is being seeded by your vision, inner and outer. Engage in
physical activity. Spend time alone. VISUALIZE your goals for the 29.6-day
cycle ahead.

Moon in Gemini - The Moon in Gemini wakes us up; we lose our concentration
but quicken our communication. The conversation sparkles our thinking, broadens
but doesn't deepen. This transit is a time to: network, investigate, translate, brainstorm,
meditate, prune, edit, explain and broadcast. The Moon in Gemini quickens our nervous
system. Build a web of understanding - network, absorb new information. Speak to your
plants, trim but avoid planting. This is a time of communication and other means of expression,
freedom, adaptability, short journeys, reading or writing, a desire for variety and having more
than one thing going at once. You may feel talkative and might want to work with your hands
during the moon's transit in Gemini. All communication (talking, writing or reading) and intellectual
matters are easier during a Gemini Moon transit. We may be more adaptable and changeable, so
take all statements and promises with a grain of salt, especially if the person has proven fickle
in the past. It's a hard time to make any decisions, but a good time to use your wit and cleverness
in conversations. There is a strong desire for variety and freedom in emotional matters and
environmental issues. Issues of the practical world are set aside for now. Moon in Gemini is the
best time to work magick for good communication, change of residence, writing, public relations,
and travel. Healing rituals for ailments of the shoulders, arms, hands or lungs are also done
during this period of time. Towards the end of the transit, when the moon approaches the Sign
of Cancer (which will be Wednesday morning), interactions and communications become more
emotional. Those born under a Moon in Gemini can talk to anyone, think fast, multi-task, shift
moods with grace but need to choose depth and focus. These people want to understand and
they live and breathe communication but they need to learn to honor stillness and communication.
They translate for us and question us.

Sun Day - Sun Day is the Day of Intent, Creation and Renewal - The Latin term for Sunday,
our first day of the week, is Dies Solis ('sun's day'). In ancient Greek it was called Hermena 
Heliou; in the Old English language it was known as Sunnandaeg; in Middle English, Sonenday. 
All of these mean the same thing - the day of the Sunday. [from Ellen Duncan's Book of Witchery ]

Solar Eclipse - A solar eclipse occurs when the moon gets between Earth and the sun, and the moon casts a shadow over Earth. A solar eclipse can only take place at the phase of new moon, when the moon passes directly between the sun and the Earth and its shadows fall upon the Earth’s surface. But whether the alignment produces a total solar eclipse, a partial solar eclipse or an annular solar eclipse depends on several factors, ---
