This New Moon once again marks the new astrological year (the beginning of the zodiac) and hints that all may be far from well (Chiron). Sun conjunct moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
Because the dark of the moon is a seed-planting time, this is the perfect time to do work inward.

Consider invoking one or two of these energies and utilize its energy to enhance your intent.
