Progressions are the symbolic unfoldment of development that astrologers use, along with transits, to understand what is taking place in a person's life.The progressed New Moon is a phase in the 29 year cycle of the progressed lunation cycle. The astrologer maps out what 3 1/2 year phase a person is in of the 8 phases that correspond to the 8 phases of the Moon; New Moon, Waxing Crescent, 1st Quarter, Gibbous, Full Moon, Disseminating, 3rd Quarter, and waning Crescent, know as Balsamic or Seed phase. A person is having a progressed New Moon when their progressed Sun and the progressed Moon are conjunct, in the same sign and degree. They are in that phase for the next 3 1/2 years. It is a time of new beginnings, a time to trust your instincts, to follow the growth that is naturally presenting itself (from what had been seeded the previous 3 years). There is the emergence of new life themes, new levels of self embodiment. A new way of life is beginning. The sign that the progressed New Moon takes place in gives the flavor and unique qualities that characterize this 29 year cycle. The house that they are in gives information about the area of life that is highlighted. Any planets conjunct the new Moon or in strong aspect continue to give the astrologer more information about the nature of the cycle that will now unfold.
