The new moon occurs when the moon is between the sun and the Earth, therefore it is in darkness and is sometimes called dark moon. This is the time to start any new venture you have planned as it symbolizes new beginnings; it is also a wonderful time for love, relationships, health and for you to make wishes about aspects of your life.
I love the thought of this, it's a good practice for everyone no matter what you believe -SD How to Do a New Moon Ritual. Been doing these for two years with my son .. He loves it, you can do what you want. Jewish women would do this & there's a prayer you can find also, but any religion/spirituality can do this and start fresh with the moon each month.
