A new year with a new moon

See also

Samhain is typically viewed as the Pagan New Year but this New Years Day may just mark something for Pagans that is more than just changing the calendar. It is a common Pagan understanding that a new moon is a time to look forward to new things, new beginnings and fresh starts. In a similar manor the New Year is also associated with the same things, although it is typically less celebrated as such in the Pagan community. This New Years Day will be a bit different as the first new moon of the new calendar year is on New Years Day. If you have been looking forward to the start of the new year or the first new moon of the year with hopes of new beginnings or making big changes, this is definitely going to be a big day for you.
