The Goddess is usualy worshipped and recognized in Her three aspects
as Maiden, Mature Woman, and Crone. As such, the three phases of the
of the Moon, the new moon (waxing) the full moon, and the dark of the
moon (waning), are attributed to the three aspects of the goddess.
The new moon is the Maiden as She grows and waxes into womanhood. This is a good time to start projects, to do rituals that need time to grow to bring forth fruits, and fore all creative endeavors.
