Things to Know About the New Moon In other essays, I've hinted that the timing of the New Moon in the sign -- whether it shows up before or after the Full Moon for that sign, for example, means something in the flow of psychological energy for us ... living our lives here on Earth.

* Full Moon / New Moon? Or New Moon / Full Moon? -- Variations on the rhythms of life ---> Different rhythms ---> It's a subtle difference, I admit, but it's there nevertheless.
