During the new moon, there is little to no light in the sky, only darkness.
The lunar cycle
A new moon marks the beginning of the lunar cycle as the moon moves between the earth and the sun, blocking the sun’s rays from our view. This darkness is the reference point from which we begin our journey through the moon phases. On an astrology chart, this appears as a conjunction between the sun and moon.
The new moon is a time of wishes and manifestation.
Think of it as a time to get clear on your dreams and goals once a month. When it comes to setting goals or planning for your future, there is no better time to get started than during a new moon.
When you set intentions at the monthly new moon, you are getting clear on what you want. This will help in understanding how to set powerful intentions in other areas of your practice.
The best way to connect with the magick of the new moon is through manifestation. This can be done by firstly, putting away electronics, secondly planning time for ritual or other magickal workings.
Some ways you can manifest with the new moon:
- Set your intentions
- Call upon deity or the Triple Goddess
- Charge your crystals or waters
- Perform a Tarot reading
- Perform a ritual or spell for yourself
There are many ways you honor and manifest with the new moon phase. Don’t worry about getting it wrong or feeling insecure; just go for it. Make time for you and your practice, and make sure it’s your own. Pave your own magickal path, and you will enjoy every minute of it!
For me, I love meditation and invocations. I get creative and always end up rhyming my incantations.
The power of writing down your intentions cannot be understated.
New to new moon manifestation? Try journaling on your first go and see what grows and flourishes. Then continue at each moon phase, and before you know it, you will have gotten closer to the moon’s energy.
