It is a mitzvah to say a Bracha for the new moon each month. It is best to say this outdoors, with a Minyan, and right after Shabbos. Some people begin saying this Bracha after the third day of the month. Others, begin saying this Bracha after the seventh day of the month. We may say this Bracha until the middle of the Jewish month. Some people shake their tzitzis to show that we are doing the mitzvos of Hashem and not worshipping the moon and stars.
