On September 9th, you're probably going to notice an absence of light in the sky at night. This is the evening of the September 2018 New Moon. Because the moon will be almost in complete darkness, it will look like there's no moon at all. This part of the moon cycle has just as many spiritual meanings as something like a Full Moon, and should be celebrated as such. One popular ritual to partake in during something like this is meditating, and there are certain meditations that are better for the September new moon than others.

A new moon indicates a the beginning of the moon's cycle, and so for us, it generally means a time for new beginnings. Many believe that a new moon is the perfect time to reflect on old goals and set new ones, directing all of your energy towards starting something new and taking a step forward in achieving your goals. One way to tap into this kind of energy and to get a more clear idea of what you're looking for and what direction you want to go in next is to meditate.

Meditation is an excellent way to clear your mind, get centered, and reduce anxiety and stress. As meditation helps you focus and quiet your mind, it also increases self-awareness, which is exactly what you want to do during this time fo the month. Luckily, you don't need to spend a lot of money to meditate, and you also don't need to be an expert to do it - the internet has plenty of resources available. Below are a few meditations that are ideal for the energy of September's new moon:
