According to traditional sources, the New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle.
It is often viewed as a symbol of endings and new beginnings. The nighttime darkness of the New Moon symbolizes the mysterious watery depth of the unconscious – the transpersonal realm where personal identity and individual boundaries dissolve and the sense of direction and ego are lost for the purpose of cleansing away the past in order to prepare the way for the future.
Archetypally, the New Moon symbolically represents:
- the fetus in the womb (Moon) waiting to be born into a new life (Sun),
- the Gnostic Marriage of Sol (the Sun) and Lunar (the Moon) – the alchemical marriage of male and female,
- the Greek goddess Hestia (Vesta) – the crackling blaze of the home hearth,
- the interplay of instinct (Moon) and ego (Sun), of soul (Moon) and spirit, yin (feminine) and yang (masculine) principles, Mother (Moon) and Father (Sun) or Man (Sun) and Woman (Moon), and existence (Moon) and meaning (Sun).
NEW MOON IN GEMINI SQUARE NEPTUNE
The New Moon on Monday, June 3, 2019 at 12°31’ Gemini makes a square to Neptune.
The Moon-Neptune archetypal complex identifies with the divine feminine principle: Shakhina (Kabbalah), Sophia (Gnosticism), The Great Mother goddess archetype, Gaia consciousness, and the Earth as a living being.
“That which was the beginning of all things under heaven we may speak of as the mother of all things. He who apprehends the mother, thereby knows the sons.”
That which was before Heaven and Earth is called the Non-Existent. The Existent is the mother of all things.
In psychological terms, the Moon-Neptune archetypal complex embodies the feminine principle of life itself from the oceanic realms of the human imagination that the great myths and great works or art are born over the centuries
The New Moon augurs the activation of one’s inner world of imagination, providing one the inspiration and moral courage to act on one’s intuitive feelings and premonitions to take a leap of faith in the purist of one’s dreams.
Therefore, it is an ideal time focus on artistic and creative efforts and one’s intuitive or precognitive abilities, dream interpretation, holotropic breathwork, transcendental meditation, ceremonial magic, mediumship, or occult work that will provide deeper insights on the path of achieving enlightenment.
The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks during the waxing phase of this new moon cycle from June 4th to the June 17th Full Moon.
