NEW MOON. Make way for the so-called "black" new moon placed under the sign of Aries this Tuesday, March 21. What impact will it have on the signs of the zodiac? What time does it occur?
[Updated March 21, 2023 7:11 PM] A new moon, that moment when the star becomes invisible in the sky, will occur this Tuesday, March 21. If the astronomical phenomenon is synonymous with a new lunar cycle, the new moon has spiritual significance in astrology. Placed under the aegis of the fire sign of Aries, this new moon is "directed, combative, full of audacity and the desire to undertake" explains astrologer Joyce Duval of Current Woman. In short, this new moon of March will bring the confidence and the click necessary to take action, by listening to your desires without concessions.
In addition, luck will be in the game: it is time to formulate "wishes to sweep away the past, or rather to restart on a new tempo a future that we want new" advises Joyce Duval. A word of advice: at the time of the new moon, take out a candle, make a wish and then blow out. At what time exactly will this astronomical phenomenon occur where the moon is not visible from the earth? What impact will it have on the signs of the zodiac? If the new moon has spiritual significance in astrology, what are the scientifically proven effects? You will know more about it in our article.
If the introspection is collective, this new Moon of March 21 will have more or less a grip according to the sun sign of each one:
This Tuesday, March 21, at 6:23:9 p.m. precisely, the new moon will occur. The schedule is established by the Institute of Celestial Mechanics and Ephemeris Calculation (IMCCE).
If scientists do not validate the theory of the effects of the moon on this or that astrological sign, it would indeed exert a magneto-gravitational influence on the living. What are the effects of the new moon on our body? In our file below, you will know all about the scientifically proven effects of the new moon, its meaning, dates and times of the next ones of the year.
What effect does the new moon have on sleep?
If the new moon marks the start of a new lunar cycle, it would also affect our sleep, scientists say. Indeed, a study carried out by researchers at the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden between January 2007 and November 2009 found "a lengthening of REM sleep duration by 30 minutes" during the new moon phase. Conversely, during the full moon phase, the study observed "a decrease in sleep time of 25 minutes", reports the journal Sciences et Avenir.
What effect does the new moon have on the tides?
The new moon also influences the tides. High tides always occur during syzygy periods, when the moon and the sun are in conjunction (new moon) or in opposition (full moon) in the same axis with the earth.
The new moon, one of the four phases of the moon based on its positioning facing the sun, occurs when the moon is positioned between the earth and the sun. Thus, its face visible from the earth is not illuminated by the sun at all. It is then difficult to observe with the naked eye, but is an interesting phase for astronomical observation, because the light of the moon interferes with the observation of the sky. The return to this same phase of the Moon (synodic period which corresponds to the duration between two identical consecutive phases of the Moon) occurs approximately every 29 days and 12 hours.
