Our Moon reflects ever-changing light during the 28 days of each cycle.
At the New Moon, the Sun and Moon are in the same place. The light is bare at first and gradually increases.
In the second week of the lunar cycle, Sun and Moon are 90-degrees away from one another. This point is called the opening square, and the Moon reflects half-light.
The third week of the lunar cycle expresses the Full Moon, where the light of the whole Moon infuses us and the night sky. At this point, the Sun and Moon are180 degrees apart from each other.
The fourth week of the lunar cycle represents the Sun and Moon at a distance of 270 degrees apart. This configuration is called the closing square. The visual is the other half of the Moon in our night sky.
These four cardinal points of the relationship between our Sun and Moon during one lunar cycle reflect, exactly, the human growth and development cycle.
New Moon reflects the newborn stage of infancy. Here we have a fresh start to begin again.
Second Quarter depicts the external resistance involved in developing autonomy. This phase mirrors what happens during the terrible twos and the teen years. At this stage, we are determined to declare our sovereignty.
Full Moon reflects the maturation of adulthood expressed through the integration of self and others within life experience.
Fourth Quarter reflects the natural process of death and rebirth. Here, we experience internal resistance to release and let go. We prepare for that zero point of transition between lunar (or life) cycles.
The lunar cycle consistently reflects the flow of emptiness becoming form and form becoming emptiness. Rising and falling. This monthly reflection is practice for our ultimate life lesson, embracing the cycle of life and death.
In the first week of this brand-new cycle, may you be gentle, tender, caring, and conscious with yourself and the new steps you take, just as you would be gentle, caring, and kind with a newborn.
Of course, we do not regress in age or behavior. The cosmic imprint is there, though, and the energetic pattern of a fresh start is indelible. While this is subtle energy, it is delicate and alive and can help us become our best selves in alignment with the cosmos.
Yes, you are working on ongoing relationships and projects, implementing long-held dreams and plans. If you bring the beginner’s mind that is available to us in this New Moon week, you might experience fresh perspectives and new opportunities for fulfillment.
New Moon = Rejuvenate = Reset = Fresh Start

In the United States, the time changes on Sunday, November 7, and we have an almost 12-hour void of course Moon. Wherever you live, notice your energy when the Moon is void of course. If your body intelligence suggests rest, relaxation, letting go of agenda, the Moon is telling us that, too. Void Moons are optimal for inner work like wandering, dreaming, self-connecting.
