The Witch's New Moon is when the very first crescent or sliver of the moon is visible. This is typically 2-3 nights after the Dark Moon.
With some variations, the Witch’s New Moon rises in the daytime before noon and becomes visible in the day sky. It will be most visible at sunset and usually sets well before midnight. The Witch’s New Moon is the same illumination percentage all over the world - both in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. However, which way the tips of the Witch’s New Moon point depends on the time, date and your location on Earth.
The Witch's New Moon is the ideal time to begin spellwork that draws a life experience, physical possession or situation to you. This can be for love, money, health or personal development.
Spells are best performed for 3-12 consecutive days. This is what leads to powerful, lasting and measurable results. Starting candle burning rituals 3 night after the Dark Moon will give you exactly 12 days of rituals, leading up to the Full Moon.
It is also the ideal time to begin a new venture, get married, apply for a job or embark on a journey. The same energetic attributes apply throughout the Waxing Moon, all the way up to the Full Moon.
