Knowing how to use the different moon phases and moon rituals will help you manifest whatever you desire with the greatest ease and flow possible, from whatever point you currently are at – energetically, that is.
Since ancient times many cultures believe that the moon has magical powers to assist in manifesting positive things into fruition.
As the moon’s monthly lunar cycle consists of four moon phases: new moon, first quarter, full moon, and last quarter, each phase has its own qualities and energy.
Our beautiful moon waxes from small to big, increasing in energy and waning back from big to low, decreasing in power each month. Moon rituals are often used during these moon phases to manifest anything you want.
New Moon Ritual
The new moon is when the moon and sun are closely together, meaning the moon rises with the sun and is not visible at night.
New moons, energetically and spiritually speaking, are about new beginnings, planting new seeds, and releasing anything that is no longer serving.
A new moon ritual could consist of a candle, paper, and pen. Here are a few steps to take to perform a new moon ritual:
1. First, ground and center yourself.
2. Tune into yourself and ask yourself what you want to manifest. You can also look for the things that no longer serve you.
3. Write down all the things that no longer help you on one page, and what you want to manifest on another.
4. Then use the candle flame to burn the list of what you want to release – burning the list allows your inner space to be cleansed and bring in new intentions and desires.
5. Now, write your new intention or wish to be manifested during this new moon and put in a safe place until the full moon.
As the new moon waxes away from the sun and grows more prominent in the night sky, it comes into a first-quarter square to the sun. In astrology, a square is a 90-degree angle creating a right-sided crescent moon.
The first quarter phase is where the moon starts to increase energy and illuminates any contrast that may be challenging the new seed planted during the new moon ritual.
During this time, you can raise positive and heartfelt intentions and affirmations toward your manifestation to overcome any obstacles.
The full moon is when the moon and sun are the opposite of each other. The moon rises after the sun sets. The sun sends light, energizing the full moon potential to manifest the full moon completion of the new moon desires.
A full moon ritual can consist of going outdoors and allowing our bodies to bask in the full moon energy. It is a good time to let your manifestation desires flow the new moon intentions out to the universe by burning the list written during the new moon.
It is also a time for deep reflection on what has or has not yet manifested from your new moon intentions. The full moon ritual is about releasing it to the universe as if it already came into reality.
Manifesting with the full moon’s energy will bring it into fruition like the moons gravitational pull.
As the full moon wanes away from the sun and grows smaller in the night sky, it comes into the last quarter square to the sun and creates the left sides crescent moon.
This moon phase starts to decrease the energy, and it calls us inward for deep and honest reflection, and to discover and release any emotions that are hindering our full moon manifestations to come to fruition.
As you see, each month there is a new opportunity to tap into the moon’s energy to manifest any desire – no matter how big or small.
