Historical Facts About New Moon Rituals
In Ancient Egypt, the new moon was tied to the cult of resurrection in the afterlife. The tradition to bury a man with his possessions and even loved ones, to keep the body in the form of mummies – all this was done for later rebirth in the afterlife. And resurrection/revival could begin only at the time of the new moon and realize when the moon is full.
The existence of so-called funeral horoscopes was also discovered, which were found in the tombs of the ancient Egyptians. To the surprise of scientists, the dates of many horoscopes coincided. It turned out that the coincidence is due to the fact that such horoscopes were created at the time of the subsequent new moon, that is, at the time of the revival of the soul.
In Ancient Babylon, the first new moon after the vernal equinox marked the beginning of the New Year and, accordingly, was a great holiday.
A lunar or solar-lunar cycle was the basis of almost all known calendar systems – Jewish and Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist. This is simply explained, the lunar phases clearly show the passage of time, and the greatest value for fixing the reference point of the lunar calendar systems played the day when the new moon was seen in the sky.

The new moon period is a very special time that is traditionally used for performing spiritual practices. In the Indian tradition of Jyotish, the time when the Moon is not visible during the new moon period is called Amavasya. It is believed that during this time the souls of deceased ancestors can come to Earth and actively communicate with us. If the souls of the forefathers see that they are remembered and honored, they give their support to us.
