In the last month of spring 2024, such a beautiful and mystical phenomenon as the full moon will be observed on May 23. The Moon will be in Sagittarius, and this combination is not very favorable. The Moon phase will encourage you to make mistakes that can have very unpleasant consequences.
On June 6, 2024, on the day of the next new moon, the Moon will be in the sign of Gemini. It will provoke impulsive decisions. However, you shouldn’t be afraid: in most cases they will be really successful. A good day to play on the foreign exchange market.

On December 15, 2024, the Moon will be in the zodiac sign Gemini. It will encourage impulsiveness and rash actions. However, you should not give in to this desire, otherwise you will later regret the mistakes you have made.
How to calculate the exact date and time of the full moon and new moon
Astrologers can create special lunar calendars that make it easy to determine which phase of the moon will be observed on a given day of the year. Such calendars have been used for many years. However, if you don’t have it at hand, you can calculate the phase of the moon yourself.
The lunar calendar is based on the synodic month, which can consist of 29 or 30 days. At the beginning of such a month there is always a new moon. The full moon will be in the middle of this period.
There is a special formula for calculating lunar days. The lunar number of the year is multiplied by 11, then 14 is subtracted from the resulting number and the numbers corresponding to the current day of the month and the serial number of the month are added. Next, 30 should be subtracted from the number obtained during the calculations. This action can be repeated until the final result is a number from the range from 1 to 30.
How to calculate the lunar number of the year? Make it even easier. These numbers go in order from 1 to 19. In 2000, this number corresponded to 6.
Knowing the lunar day, it is not difficult to determine the phase of the moon. So, on the first lunar day there will be a new moon, and on the fifteenth there will be a full moon.
How the phases of the moon affect a person
Scientists have repeatedly tried to refute the fact of the influence of the phases of the moon on human life. However, astrologers are convinced that it still exists. In addition, many people notice this effect in practice. However, it is important to understand that the Moon itself does not provoke a person to take any action and does not cause clouding of the mind, it only pushes his energy in a certain direction.
During the new moon, energy levels are usually at their lowest. During this period, many feel seemingly unreasonable fatigue and a strong loss of strength. Men often begin to show aggression. During this period, human health is especially vulnerable and needs attention: watch your diet and devote enough time to rest.
The most mysterious phase of the moon can be called the full moon. The surge of energy is quite strong, but at the same time people become especially susceptible to emotions. That is why many people show special sensitivity during this period.
What you can and cannot do on a full moon
Due to the influence of the Moon in the middle of the synodic month, certain actions should be abandoned. Others, on the contrary, will bring maximum positive results.
Best on a full moon:
- plan speeches and presentations;
- take a bath to receive lunar energy;
- perform a love ritual;
- prepare moon water;
- carry out a ceremony to attract money.
At the same time, the following actions should be avoided during the full moon:
- quarrels with a loved one;
- throwing things away;
- procedures with a cosmetologist, planned operations;
- change of image;
- consumption of alcohol and tranquilizers;
- large expenses, impulsive purchases;
- everything you might regret.
What you can and cannot do on a new moon
The new moon influences a person no less. Therefore, it is important to know what you can and cannot do during the new moon.
Optimal actions during the new moon:
- writing plans and goals for the month;
- job change;
- large purchases;
- creative activities (especially new hobbies);
- games with children;
- yoga or meditation;
- a walk in a park or square.
What not to do on a new moon:
- think about the past;
- give up your desires and new opportunities.
Astrologer Nela Jenningstalks about how and why the phases of the Moon affect a person, as well as how you should plan your life in accordance with the phases of the Earth’s satellite.
It is important to remember that the Moon has a strong influence on the tides. And a person consists of 80% water, so the influence of the Moon on him is also quite great. However, not everyone can feel it for themselves. It all depends on what sign the Earth’s satellite is in. In addition, people with an inner core are more balanced and less susceptible to such influence.
— You don’t need to believe in something, but check for yourself the influence, for example, of the phases of the moon on your life. This will help you study and know yourself through astrology. After all, astrology is a tool for self-knowledge, and something mysterious, like a magic ball. For example, when I was studying to be an astrologer, we spent a whole month describing what sign the Moon was in, how I was feeling, what was happening. I remembered that when my Moon was in Capricorn (and Capricorn is responsible for consistency, for a career, for order, discipline and composure), then I think faster, find answers, and react to something. These days I am as productive and collected as possible.
In general, man has free will. Every day each of us makes some decisions on which our future life and destiny depend. And the state a person is in influences his choice. Our condition depends, in particular, on the sign in which the Moon falls. And you can use this in your life.
Questions and answers
The phases of the moon and everything connected with them often arouse genuine interest and many questions among people. Together with astrologer Nela, we give answers to the most popular of them.
Is it possible to make a wish on a full moon or a new moon? How to do this correctly?
It is believed that on the new moon you need to clear everything, think about what you want, set goals. But the full moon is more suitable for making wishes, because it is believed that both the Moon and the person are most receptive during this period. There are studies that wishes come true much faster when a person experiences strong emotions. During the full moon, people become more emotional, so this period is favorable for desires.
The desire must be formulated as if it has already happened. For example, not “I want a car,” but “I have a specific car of a certain color, new.” All details must be written down. You need to clearly and vividly imagine what you want, what you feel at this moment, what you hear, what you see. That is, to use all senses as much as possible. At the same time, the desire must be sincere: not because it is fashionable, but because you really want it. And we definitely need to start taking action in this direction.
How long does it take from full moon to new moon?
A month passes from one full moon to another, and half a month passes from a full moon to a new moon. This refers to the lunar month, which is shorter than the calendar month and is 29 or 30 days.
How does the full moon affect your emotional state?
The person becomes emotionally unstable. During the full moon, both positive and negative emotions intensify. Feelings that a person has been trying to suppress for a long time can also surface.
What types of full moons are there?
The full moon varies depending on the month and phase of the moon. For example, a full moon may be called the “Winter Solstice”, “Summer Solstice”, “Spring Equinox” and “Autumn Equinox”. Also, full moons can have different names in different cultures and traditions.
