New Moon Wishing

Every Month

New Moon Wishing is a ritual you can practice every month that brings the meaning of each New Moon alive for you and relates it to your life.

The next New Moon will be at a particular degree in a sign and will be in one of the twelve houses of your chart.

By making wishes at the New Moon that correlate closely to your chart you can tap into the energy of the cosmos in a specific way.

 

The Cycle of New Moons

There is a New Moon about every twenty-nine days and that typically makes one New Moon each Month.

 

Two New Moons in a Month

But, each year there may be a month with two New Moons.

For example, back in August 2019 there were two New Moons. The first New Moon is on the first of August and the second New Moon is on the thirtieth of August.

 

Two New Moons in a Sign

Now and then there may be a zodiac sign with two New Moons.

Aries 2023

For example, in 2023 there were two new Moons in one sign that of Aries the Ram.

Check and see where the next New Moon will be in the zodiac. Then find the natal house in your chart where the position of the next New Moon will occur.

Each month the New Moon will likely move to the next house of your chart but it does depend on your chart’s houses.

If you have an intercepted sign it could skip one house altogether. If you have wide houses there could be two New Moon in the same house for two months in a row.

Solar Eclipses

New Moons that are also solar eclipses can be more energizing for that month’s wishing.

Your Natal Houses

Find the house in which the next New Moon will occur.

Make three to five wishes in line with the meaning of you New Moon house.

Write them on a nice piece of paper and have these wishes ready and prepared before the New Moon.

At The New Moon

At the moment of the New Moon place a candle in your window and say your wishes out loud. Then place the paper with your wishes on it on the windowsill underneath or next to the candle. If possible let the candle burn a while or even overnight.

  

Your Astrology Journal

In your astrology journal note the date and the degree of the New Moon and make any notes later in that cycle if there was anything to mention.

Say how and when your wishes came true.

New Moon Annual Forecasting

New Moon Wishing and the positions of each New Moon can (and should) be a part of your annual astrology predictions and year-end astrology review.

You can get all the forecast information together for yourself towards the end of each year in November or December so you are all ready for the New Year.

Next Year

When you get a next year’s calendar, diary or journal that is the time to add the astrological information which really interests you.

Professional astrologers typically have whole years of forecasting material ahead so they are fully prepared.

I usually have all major transits and therefore New Moons listed for up to five years ahead.

This practice is more about that I write horoscopes so far in advance for publications who need to be months and even years ahead.

You can do one month at a time to start with and perhaps one day you too will look further ahead.

The Graphic Ephemeris

Ephemeris

The word ephemeris (plural ephemerides) is from the Greek word ephemeros, which means daily.

This is a quick introduction to the graphic ephemeris. Generally the ephemeris that astrologers use is a hefty reference book.

It details astronomical data like daily planetary positions by zodiac sign with the degrees and minutes for each planet as well as information such as sidereal time (used for calculating the ascendant).

An ephemeris is usually laid out month by month for each year. Planetary positions are listed in tables for either noon or at midnight depending on the ephemeris used.

Graphic Ephemeris

Luckily we have a visual representation of the daily planetary positions in the graphic ephemeris. It is a quick way to find hard aspects.

It can be quite tedious to manually calculate all the planetary positions for a birth chart. Perhaps there are some of you who began your journey into astrology with this method.

You were probably relieved when the old Blue Star and then Solar Fire programs generated perfect charts.

Charts with a higher level of mathematical accuracy (even though birth times are still unreliable) are created by computers rather than manual calculations.

The graphic ephemeris has a slightly different purpose than the ephemeris book. It is mainly used for predictive work and specifically outer planetary progressions, transits and directions shown in a graph.

It is a highly visual tool where you can select the preferred time period. The planets remain constant on every graph of the period. It is the connections to the natal chart that are shown clearly by this method.

Visualization

Imagine if you take the birth chart wheel as 360° on a piece of paper and you fold it in half at the (0°Aries/0°Libra) line you then have 180° of the circle.

Next fold it in half again to show 90°, finally if you fold the chart once more you have a 45° ‘slice’ of the circle. If the paper was transparent, it would show all the planets and angles within the small 45° slice.

Transiting planets will be at the same point on the slice and therefore will be depicted near each other on the Graphic Ephemeris. This is simply a different way to look at the transits to a natal chart.

The process of folding the chart from conjunctions 0° into oppositions 180°, into squares 90° and then semi-squares 45° or sesquiquadrates 135° only allows hard aspects to be shown.

Generally there are no harmonious aspects like sextiles or trines depicted on the graph.

How to Read a Graphic Ephemeris

The left of the graph begins with a column showing the cardinal degrees from 0° for 30°. At 30°, the fixed signs start and carry on to the 45°, and then begin again at the top from 0° to 15°. Finally the mutable signs are shown from 15° for 30°.

Across the top is time in months.

On the right side of the graph is a column with the natal planets and angles by sign. Each planet and point has a coloured dotted line associated with it running horizontally across the page.

Predictive work usually begins with revealing the transits. The outer planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune as well as Chiron and Pluto are generally selected for transits.

The direct transiting planets enter the graph at the left and move through time down and to the right. During retrograde periods, they move up the page in a wave motion. Where planets are at 0° of the cardinal signs by transit, they will re-enter the graph at the top.

Planets changing signs have a small dot in the planetary colour on their path.

Pluto has a shallower path than Jupiter. This is due to the slower movement of this minor planet in space.

Transits

Where a transiting planet’s curve crosses a natal planet’s dotted line, a transit aspect to the natal planet is formed.

The aspect glyph is at the intersection of the two. Where two transiting planets’ paths cross each other on the graph, there is an aspect being formed between those two planets on that day in space. The actual aspect symbol is not shown on the graphic ephemeris, only aspects to the natal chart.

Nodes and Moon cycle

The nodal axis moves in a straight line on the plane of the ecliptic and is always retrograde.

The full moon is shown as a white circle and new moon as black circles.

Where a solar eclipse happens there is a black circle with the conjunction symbol within it. A lunar eclipse is depicted by a white circle with the opposition symbol within it.
