New Moon Magic: Nurturing Intentions and Renewal

Hey guys, it’s Penny here! I hope you’re okay. Today’s post will be about harnessing the powers and energies of the new moon. The new moon occurs when the moon is positioned between the Earth and the Sun, with its dark side facing the Earth. This phase marks the beginning of the lunar cycle. It's called the "new" moon because it's the first visible phase after the moon's conjunction with the sun.

 

In astrology, the new moon is considered a powerful time for setting intentions, starting new projects, and initiating change. Each new moon falls in a specific astrological sign, influencing the type of energy associated with that particular lunar cycle. Today, we are having a new moon in Pisces, and thanks to the nature of Piscean energy, this period will be beneficial for manifestation and connecting with your Higher Self.




 

As the new moon symbolizes renewal, new beginnings, and the opportunity for growth, we can use this period of time to release the old and make way for the new, and we can set new moon intentions, manifestations and goals. If, for instance, you haven’t created your vision board for 2024, you can definitely create it during the Pisces new moon.

 

So, how can we use this advantageous period?

 

1)    Setting intentions: The new moon is an excellent time for setting intentions and goals for the next lunar cycle. Reflect on what you want to manifest in your life and write down your intentions in a journal or on a piece of paper.




 

2)    Spend time in quiet reflection or meditation to connect with your inner self. Use this time to listen to your intuition, gain clarity on your desires, and release anything that no longer serves you. Visualize your intentions coming to fruition during the new moon phase. Picture yourself achieving your goals and manifesting your desires with clarity and focus.






 

3)    Bath with moon water: This little ritual was something I learned from an astrologer a few years ago. During the new moon, put a jar of water (without the lid) right by your window and let it stay there for a night. In the morning, your moon water will be ready! You can put it in your bath water, or you can take a shower with it. You will feel refreshed and energized afterwards!



 

4)    Movement: Practice yoga, tai chi, or other mindful movement practices to center yourself and align your body, mind, and spirit with the energy of the new moon.You can also trying to take a walk in nature and connect with the natural world around you. Ground yourself by walking barefoot on the earth and take in the beauty and serenity of your surroundings.




 

5)    Tarot or oracle card readings: Use divination tools such as tarot cards or oracle decks to gain insight into your path and receive guidance on the energies surrounding you during the new moon phase.



 

6)    Create your own ritual: Create a ritual or ceremony to honor the new moon. This could involve lighting candles, burning incense, or performing a cleansing ritual with sage or Palo Santo to clear away negative energy and set the stage for new beginnings.






See you on the next post!
