New Moon - The New Moon is found when it conjuncts the Sun exactly (0 degrees) up until it is 45 degrees ahead of the Sun.
Those who were born under a New Moon are initiators. They like to set goals, as they enjoy starting new projects, but don't always have the discipline to complete them. They are enthusiastic, optimistic and trusting. They can also be quite emotional and self-absorbed.
Often the Sun and Moon will be in the same sign here. If the sign is a yin sign, then the person's inner life will be important to them. If the sign is a yang sign, the person's outer life will take precedence. Challenges are necessary for them to grow.
