A time to restore and strengthen your spirit
The Dark of the Moon is considered an especially mysterious, fruitful, and flexible time of "molding" the creative experiences that will come forth in the weeks immediately ahead.
It is said that wishes made as the last sliver of the Moon's light fades on the left, and affirmed through the Dark of the Moon until the first sliver of new light appears again on the right, have special support -- special empowerment -- to come true.
Affirming them again at the moment of the New Moon itself gives extra push to their nourishment and initiative.
A time for calm and serenity
The Dark of the Moon is time of legendary power for creation. The Dark of the Moon is always best used to rest, recuperate, center and ground yourself. Treat yourself with special kindness and enjoy some special TLC.
Become quiet, invite calm and serenity into your world, and spend some time reflecting back over your life and history -- as far as you want to go into the past. Play with new intentions, new desires, new directions. It's time to stay "at home" -- physically and psychologically -- and tend to your inner self, your private world and the quality of life there.

A time to nourish your creative soul
Create the conditions that will replenish your spirit ... and indulge them fully, whether this means meditation, reading, contemplation, cleaning or maybe just getting some extra sleep.
Clear away emotional and psychological debris that hinders you. Listen to music. Write in your journal. Talk quietly with intimate, trusted associates, listen to the whispered words of your deepest intuitions, work on personal healing therapies and rituals ... or do some of all these things.
A time to fantasize ... and dream
Play with ideas and think of things you might like to create over the next several weeks, realizing this is a time to brainstorm, daydream, and fantasize, not a time to take action. All things begin in mind. Everything in the world originated in the nebulous intellectual energy of an idea, a dream, a desire.
To work with the especially potent energy that comes with the Dark of the Moon, plan for some serious down-time every month starting about 2 1/2 days before each New Moon ... and lasting for 1 - 1 1/2 days after ... and focus your inner work, thoughts, and attention on the matters I just described.
Working with the wisdom of Astrology ...
You can recognize the subtle knock of real opportunity
and the soft voice of invitations to personal growth
because you know they're coming, where to look for them,
and what they'll look like when they appear.

A time to remember who you are
and prepare to face life again
This automatic "natural" 4 day vacation can help bring fabulous results -- emotionally, psychologically, physically, spiritually and even financially to your life. It's easy to find information about the New Moon every month ... by searching online, of course, but many calendars (and certainly all astrological calendars!!) have this information clearly marked in the appropriate day / date box.
The Dark of the Moon days that surround the New Moon's arrival each month are the time to set new intentions and plans into motion ... in the realm of thought where all creation happens.
However you choose to do it, learning to work in flow with the natural progression of energy marked by the phases of the Moon could be one of the most productive things you do for your life and your success ... ever!! And one of the easiest to use, too!
