New moon in Aquarius today at 1:38pm PST. Time to make new moon wishes! For those interested, a New moon occurs every month. It's the time of new beginnings and the energy will increase or wax, until the moon is Full, which it then goes into it's waning state, decreasing in light, energy and is a great time to let go and release things u no longer want in your life. From the New to the Full is the time to start your projects and take action on them. The energy is building, peaking at the full moon, which occurs in the astrological sign opposite of the new moon. This month we have a Full moon in Leo. The new moon is always the same as the transiting Sun, in this case Aquarius. all signs move in 30 degree intervals and opposite signs are 180 degrees apart.
