Rosh Chodesh Nissan—An Ancient Astrological Acknowledgement

This evening is Rosh Chodesh Nissan—the start of the Jewish lunar new year calendar cycle. Not to be confused with the other new years celebrated in Judaism (we have 4, including Rosh Hashanah).

This Rosh Chodesh (lunar new month) aligns with the movement of the moon, an ancient astrological acknowledgement of the movement of Earth’s seasons.

We follow the light of the spring equinox, a new moon a blessing to behold as our Earth, in the northern hemisphere, begins to transform from the dormancy of winter into the fullness of spring.

Wherever you are, and however you may or may not observe, may this time of transition support your connection to the divine.

As Baba Ram Dass said, “I’d rather cultivate faith than skepticism.”
