New Moon meaning

The First Quarter or The New Moon.  This phase begins when the Moon and the Sun are together in the sky, or conjunct one another. At the beginning of this phase, the moon is invisible, hidden by the brightness of the Sun as they travel the sky together. The Moon is often said to be in her dark phase when she is just new. The New Moon can’t actually be seen until 5½ to 12 hours after its birth. Toward the end of First Quarter phase, as the Moon pulls farther away from the Sun and she begins to wax toward the second quarter stage, a delicate silver crescent appears.
