New Moons & Full Moons in 2023


Full moon

Full Moon Meaning


Full moons represent the close of something. The reason being is that the sun (ego, identity) directly opposes the moon (inner emotions). If you think about it, this makes for a pretty dramatic emotional moment—since there is nowhere for ego or pride to hide when looking in the mirror.


For that reason, full moons tend to bring up brutal reality checks regarding the things that we are avoiding or not paying attention to. What and how a full moon affects you is all dependent on the zodiac sign it's in and your birth chart.


New Moon Meaning


If full moons represent endings, then new moons represent new beginnings! As the sun (ego, identity) makes its way to touch the moon (inner emotions), we have a sudden jolt of energy regarding what our desires are. So, we tend to be more enthusiastic, uplifted, or ready for change.


Again, how a new moon affects you will depend on the sign and where it falls in your chart. But, for example, you might feel ready to put labels on a relationship if there's a new moon occurring in your 7th House of long-term partnerships.
