During the new moon, water is said to be pulled the surface to nourish the roots of the plant. Not that much different from us utilizing mindfulness and manifesting growth. We can see that reflected in our new plant when we incorporate it into our intention setting. It’s just so satisfying to watch our new plant thrive alongside us.
We follow west coast time to make sure everyone gets their Lunarly box in time for the new moon. It’s all good, follow the new moon in your region-- we’re just trying to get everyone their stuff on time for intention-setting.
Because of the nature of the lunar calendar versus the Gregorian calendar, sometimes there are two full moons in a month. The Gregorian calendar is the current solar model most of us adhere to, with months and days. But the lunar calendar is different, as it is made up of 29.5 days. That means that sometimes, lunar months--aka, moon cycles-- will overlap within a solar month. Hence, differently-named moons within the same month.
Like we mentioned, many of the moon names vary depending on what part of the world you might be in. Even here in the U.S., there are variations dependent on where you are in the country, and traditionally, come from Native tribes. For example, the Zuni tribe of New Mexico called April’s moon “the Great Sandstorm moon”, while the Apache tribe of the southern Plains referred to the same moon as “the Moon of Big Leaves”. Both reflect the conditions of their respective regions for the same lunar cycle.   Source: http://www.wwu.edu/skywise/indianmoons.html
Before we had calendars, most of the world relied on the moon to tell what time of the month it was. The names of the moons are highly regional in nature, and super-dependent on things like agriculture, climate, or religious beliefs.
For the same reason the moon is important! New moon, new you, new, clean state.
Since the beginning of time, humanity’s fascination with the moon has led to innovations in science, spirituality, and so much more. The tides of our ocean are controlled by the moon. Many believe the full moon is connected to weird happenings and strange behaviors. For centuries-- and even today-- farmers sowed their crops using lunar planting guides. As cool as all these things are, we care about the moon in a different way. We like to use the phases of the moon to guide us in our intention setting practice. Much like our own lives, the moon waxes and wanes....
