Question 1. (C) the 24 hour period before the New Moon is called Amavasya and it is only good for rest, recharging, spiritual activities, and for getting rid of conditions that aren't serving you any more.
Question 2. (C) Even though the 24 hours after the New Moon is technically supposed to be a period for new beginnings, the Moon has very little light and needs another day before it has the momentum to promote the process of growth.
This new moon is in Purva Bhadrapada nakshatra, symbolized by a funeral cot. This is a symbol of endings, so the entire lunar month following the new moon is spiritually charged and a good time to eliminate things that are not working for you. That doesn't mean you can't start anything, it's just a general tendency of the lunar month. This is a good month to go for a walk in a graveyard, think about what is really important in life, and the fact that nothing in the material world lasts.
Just one in a never ending stream of positive thoughts to brighten your day.
