The concept of Rosh Chodesh, literally the “head of the month” is, that just as the head contains the overall vitality]of the body, the “head” of the month contains the overall vitality of the entire month. Just as Rosh Hashana contains the overall vitality for the entire coming year, Rosh Chodesh contains the overall vitality for the ensuing month, encompassing the vitality for the next thirty days.
From the Rebbe Maharash, the 4th Lubavitcher Rebbe

“Rosh Chodesh is not simply another day being marked off on the calendar but has special significance and it is fitting to celebrate it with dignity and honor.”
