At some point during the month long wind down of your old solar year, a New Moon brings you to a line in the sand. This is a month that has a dual purpose, that of bringing one solar year to a close and preparing for the next. Because a New Moon is all about new beginnings, this is the point where the focus shifts to lining up in front of new doors before they open. With your birthday month and new solar year just four days away, all of a sudden there is a new sense of anticipation in the air.
