In most cultures, the new moon is considered to be important. This day is good for meditating, requesting healing, and seeking spiritual growth.
Even if you do not have time for elaborate rituals or for meditation, you can always set aside some time during the evening to do some very basic rituals on the new moon night. This day is ideal for sending out our wishes, desires, goals, and aspirations into the universe. It's the day to form intentions, start new work, and manifest our desires. Spend a few quiet minutes contemplating and deciding what you want to achieve in the coming month, and what you want in your life, and lay the groundwork for it during this time.
If you can spare a few extra minutes on the new moon night, then do a ritual according to your Zodiac Sign (given below!) and get some extra new moon energy and benefits in your life.
