Astrologers agree 2021 will most likely be ruled by both New Moons and lunar eclipses. Horoscope experts believe New Moons are a time for reflection and restoration. And eclipses of the Moon are meanwhile considered able to supply sudden changes and turning points in people’s lives.
New Moons are known to occur when Earth’s celestial orb positions itself between the Earth and the Sun, meaning there is a distinct lack of light reflecting from its pockmarked surface.
From an astrological perspective, New Moons are believed to be the best times of the month for reflection and taking stock of your situation.
When the night sky grows dark, this natural satellite appears to hide from the heavens.
And without any discernible presence, stargazers are forced to pause and notice the shadowy undersides of their lives.
While it appears almost every culture on Earth boasts different beliefs around the energy of new moons, the consensus is New Moons are an opportune moment for reflection.
In contrast to to energy and vibrance imparted by Full Moons, their newer incarnations are a time to consider the positives of the past lunar cycle as well as pondering the potential impact of the next one.

Lunar eclipses fall at Full Moons, which sees our planet passing directly between the Sun and the Moon.
This cuts-off their communication and casting a shadow on the Earth, which often appears in dramatic shades of rusty red and even eerie crimson.
Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon occur up to six times a year and are thought to herald sweeping changes to people’s lives.
Some therefore think an eclipse can force those feeling indecisive about an issue to act.
