Exact New Moon will take place on Tuesday, Jan 20 at 5:14 AM pacific time. It is taking place in the Nakshatra (constellation) of Uttara Ashadha. Uttara Ashadha literally means final victory or later victory. New Moon is a new birth. It is good for sowing seeds. And this New Moon in Uttara Ashadha will ensure that those seeds ultimately do fructify.
Sowing seeds in the middle of winter is not what farmers do. But in the quiet cold night of the winter is when we have deepest connection with the Source and communicating with our soul becomes easy.
“Just remember in the winter, far beneath the cold snows, lies the seed that with Sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose.” ~ Bette Midler
