Three days before the New Moon is called the Balsamic Phase. The Balsamic Moon appears after the waning Crescent Moon, just before she completely vanishes from visibility ushering in the dark of the Moon, the New Moon. During this darkness it is time to retreat, become receptive to nuances and impressions, and to let go. Whatever information or answers are needed will eventually be illuminated. This is why the New Moon is symbolic of change and new beginnings. The dark of the Moon is a gate of inspiration.
The Balsamic Phase is also called the "Wishing Moon". It's an auspicious time to create that which is desired. Particular focus may be given to the sign of the New Moon and where that sign falls in your birth chart. The June 12, 2010 New Moon falls in the sign of Mercury-ruled Gemini at 21-22 degrees. This is a communicative, lively, busy, nervous, mutable, air Moon. The area of life in which this New Moon falls in your chart may experience spontaneous activity.
On the East Coast, the New Moon appears at 7:15am. By 7:35 pm the Moon is Void-of-Course (VOC) until it enters it's own sign, Cancer, at 9:50 pm EDT. Chiron, Uranus and Jupiter are at 00 degrees, also ushering in new energy and a brand new cycle.
