Tonight, at 11:24 p.m. (PT), a New Moon will rise. New Moon, known as the “invisible phase,” occurs when Sun and Moon are aligned, with the Sun and Earth on opposite sides of the Moon. This leaves the side of the Moon that faces Earth in darkness.
Night skies without moonlight are the best for stargazing. We know that the New Moon’s gravitational forces affect ocean tides. It’s easy to assume a New Moon affects all bodies in ways little understood by humans. (Note to self: think about this if awake near midnight.)
One who starts reading or writing poetry on a New Moon night might be feeling its effect. Perhaps creativity is one of its high forces. Maybe I’ll wait for the New Moon with a pencil in my hand, writing whatever comes to mind.
All that’s fun to think about and a little mind vacation from everyday matters.
Dear Friends: We’re moving into a new month; give a hello to spring. Diana
