Ah yes, once again we are in the energy of the “New Moon”. This energy begins 3 days before the actual event, the 4th day ~ being its most potent energetic moment and then the 3 days afterwards, as the moon moves away from this phase..
Each month the lunar cycles of both the full moon and the new moon give us the opportunity to manifest what we want in life or to dismiss those things that do not serve us and process them out.
First some facts about the New Moon:
The new moon is the phase of the moon when the moon is not visible from Earth, because the side of the moon that is facing us is not being lit by the sun. The new moon is between the sun and the earth: it is 0-45 degrees in front of the sun. The new moon is invisible to us on earth because it does not reflect the light of the sun (except during a solar eclipse). The new moons un-illuminated side is facing earth. At the time of the new moon, the moon rises at about the same time the sun rises, and it sets at about the same time the sun sets. Astrologically the sun and moon are in the same sign. The Moon is a satellite and the Sun is a star, neither are planets.
Using the energy of the New Moon, this is what I have to say:
The new moon is the birthing cycle of the moon’s various phases. Are you ready to attract your heartfelt longings by doing a moon ritual focused on manifestation? The new moon phase is an optimal time for planning and seeding your intentions. Seedlings need a period of gestation before they break through the soil and reach for the sunlight. This is also true for our cultivating our ideas and clearing the way for our visions to surface in reality. The dark side of the moon, with its mysterious unseen forces, offers a nurturing environment where our intentions can establish roots before their miraculous manifestations begin to sprout and reach out to the stars.
New Moon Ritual for Birthing your Desires & Wishes:
Begin by setting aside a few minutes each month during the new moon phase to focus on your wishes. This will help give you clarity of mind and fill your heart with promise. When it comes to setting goals or planning ahead for your future there is no better time to get started than during the new moon. Any intentions stated or written down also carries power, so please take care in considering those things that you truly want. The saying “Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.” is fair warning whenever setting your new moon intentions into motion. But, no worries. The moon has its phases and so do our individual wants and needs. This is why it is a good practice to rededicate your list of intentions each month when another new moon cycle returns for a visit.
Prep for Upcoming New Moon Manifestation
1. Check a moon phase calendar for the next upcoming new moon.
2. Set aside 20-30 minutes to do the ritual itself.
3. Supply suggestions:
• pen and colored markers
• scotch tape
• smudge sticks
• meditation CDs
4. Create a sacred space where you can be comfortable and undisturbed when the new moon arrives.
Setting your New Moon Intentions in Motion
1. Cleanse your sacred area with an opening prayer, a sage smudging, and/or by burning some incense.
2. Light one or more candles.
3. Center your being and calm yourself in whatever way is appropriate for you. Take some deep cleansing breaths, slip in a meditation CD to listen to, and/or leisurely sip on a cup of relaxing herbal tea.
4. Open your notebook, and date the first page. Write down these words “I accept these things into my life now or something better for my highest good and for the highest good of all concerned.” or something similar. Below your affirmation statement, begin writing down your desires. Your list may consist of a single item or you may have several pages listing multiple items. Try not to limit yourself. If having many things in your life helps to fulfill you then don’t deny yourself wanting these things.
5. During the month when an item on your new moon list comes to you no not merely cross it off of your list. Take the time to rewrite the list in its entirety eliminating the manifested item from the listing. Revising your master list in this way is highly recommended. At the same time you may add whatever else that you have decided you would like. Feel free to reword any of the original phrases to better suit your life now. It is natural that your desires will change as time advances.
6. A second notebook will be used as a manifestation scrapbook where you can paste in pictures or catalog clippings of items that you are wanting to manifest. Creating manifesting scrapbooks or vision boards is a fun project to undertake, enjoy yourself! You will soon be amazed how these things begin to find their way into your life once you start this process.
Rededicating your New Moon Intentions
Each month at the new moon rededicate your intentions by renewing your list at a repeated ritual. This is accomplished by rewriting your list out using a fresh sheet of paper. Please don’t get in the habit of simply scratching out the items you no longer desire and simply adding the new stuff to the bottom of your old list. You don’t want clutter and sloppiness energies messing up the path meant to deliver new stuff into your life do you? Disregard any items that no longer feed your soul and add new things which will.
It is helpful to salt and pepper your manifest list with smaller items that will manifest quickly, such as tickets to the ballet, lunch with a friend, or a day at the spa. You may think that smaller things are too trivial to put on your intention list… Wrong! Things that tend to manifest with less effort still deserve to be written down. Write down everything that you desire, no matter how little or simple. If it is something that makes you happy, write it down. Manifesting smaller items on our lists actually creates a steady flow of chi giving your list a boost. These smaller manifestations create movement, allowing an ebb and flow of the tides. We are dealing here with the moon cycles after all. Besides, sometimes we forget to appreciate the smaller pleasures in our lives while we are waiting for the BIG stuff to come in. If you only write statements like, “I want to win the lottery” in your notebook then you are limiting yourself by not allowing abundance to flow to you from a multitude of avenues.
Of course this is just a single practice and not set in stone. Do what feels comfortable for you and of course what works within your life.
For those who have limited time ( and that would be me! ) Simply write your intentions down on a piece of paper, stand outside and then simply burn the paper until it is a mere ash. Always give thanks for the gifts that you are about to receive.
However you choose to do it, remember the most important thing is is that you realize the power of the New Moon and your opportunity to create change each and every month in your life. So change, create & manifest your dreams come true!
About New Moon Meditations:
The New Moon Meditation is a time to plant seeds in your life to create your own garden.

These seeds will grow and flower into your garden of dreams, goals, ideas, inspiration, affirmation, incantations, mission and/or vision. This meditation is for you, for ‘spiritual’ planting, for bringing in the new and creating freshness in your life.
New Moon Meditation Script:
Breathe and relax. Feel yourself letting go of conscious thought, of worry, tension, and doubt. Breathe and relax.
Know that you are surrounded with Divine white light, protected and uplifted by your team of guides and angels. You are supported in moving in the direction of your dreams, in manifesting the intentions of your heart, in living the Divinely inspired blueprint of your soul planned prior to your birth. And so for right now, relax, breathe, and let go.
Imagine that the doors of your heart are opening wide and that you are entering within, going inward into your inner space, peace, calm, silence, void. Breathe and relax.
Focus now on your eyes, letting your eyes relax, your mouth and your jaw relax, focus on your neck, releasing tension and relaxing your neck, relaxing your shoulders, your arms, your chest. Relax your abdomen, relax your upper back, relax your lower back, relax your hips, your thighs, relax your legs, knees, calves, relax your ankles, relax your feet. Relax your fingers and your toes. Relax, breathe, and enter in.
And now begin to imagine that you are sitting outside in a safe place in nature on top of a hill or in a clearing where you can get a full view of the night sky. Notice your surroundings. The darkness of night around you, but you are able to sense, feel, and know the presence, the protection from your guides and from your angels here with you now.
Imagine that you are looking up at the night sky now, noticing millions of stars twinkling from amidst the dark blue and black night sky. More stars than you count, more stars than you have ever seen before illuminating the space within, shining brightly.
Notice the constellations. Notice the brightest star, which you are most drawn to now. Does it have a color? Imagine that the light of this star, the brightest star in the sky at this time that is able to be seen so clearly and brightly, due to the new moon. The light of the bright star in the night sky under the new moon now shines down upon you.
Imagine the light from this star energy anchoring now into your light body and your spiritual form, your frequency being elevated, being uplifted from this Divine cosmic light from the brightest star in the night sky, shining down upon you now, cleansing and uplifting you, attuning you to your inspiration, to your qualities of the light, qualities of the Divine. Receive this blessing from the night sky, from the brightest star in the sky right now. Receive, and notice all the stars once again twinkling before you as you look up.
As you are viewing the night sky, you notice a shooting star streaking across the horizon. And we say to you, now is the time to wish upon a star, to wish for your heart’s desire, to place your intentions for this new cycle, for this new beginning.
And so ask for what you desire. Intend what you wish to be so. And as you place this intention, another shooting star darts across the sky like an angel flying across the night sky at lightning speed. This star illuminates your vision and then disappears back into the darkness of the night. Declare your wish, place an intention.
What do you desire to see in your life? In the world? Personally? Collectively? For your family? In your experience?…
As you continue to view the night sky above you, shooting stars begin to increase in their frequency. A meteor shower above you twinkling and dancing through the sky. As you take a moment to set your intentions, to be aware of your true heart’s desire, to wish upon the stars, you begin to notice that the lights zipping through the sky, flying by, flying in and out of experience, entering into the sky, entering into this realm, in and out… are angels of the light flying above, beside, in, out, and all around, working with the light, with frequency, with energy to align reality with your intentions, to assist you in manifesting your wish, your dreams. To align you with your true heart’s desire, with your Divine blueprint, with your path, with the ways in which you may serve and love, which brings joy and fulfillment for you and benefit for all.
Breathe and relax. Look up at the night sky once again experiencing the magnificence of the Divine present in this now. Feel your love for mother earth, for father sky. Feel the immense love present in this now and now imagine that you are gathering all of this love into a ball that you can grasp in your hands, gathering all the love present in this moment into a concentrated ball of energy that you are now sending down, sending your love to the earth, sending all the love of this present moment to earth now.
And as you do this, the love from the earth is returned, the earth mother, for you are a child of the earth, now responds with love for you in this moment, blessing you in your new beginning, empowering you to boldly and bravely take the steps forward to create your dream.
Look up at the night sky once more noticing the constellations, the stars, the planets, noticing all that is, that is outside of the earth, that makes up the Divine, that makes up the cosmos, that makes up father sky.
Feel your love for the Divine, for the stars, planets, cosmos, for all the incredible love present in this now and imagine that all of this love is drawing into you, being compacted into an energetic ball, which you can hold onto. All the love of this present moment drawing in. And now take this ball of love and send your love to the Divine through the central sun, sending your love to the Divine and momentarily or automatically, love from the Divine returns to you tenfold.
And so now love from earth, sky, angels, guides. Love from you and from all around you, uplifts you, unites you with the healing power of love contained within you in this very now, creating a ripple of beneficial energy, for love knows no limit, flowing throughout all, impacting all, uplifting all through this magnificent power of love, inspiring you to live your dream, to walk your authentic truth, to live as the unique, Divine being that you are, one of a kind living your truth now and in this new cycle.
Take your next step with love and trust that the next will follow. Know that your team of guides and angels are with you assisting you, protecting you, uplifting you along your journey. Ask for assistance, call us in, and know that you are Divinely loved and supported always by earth, by sky, by stars, by angels, by guides, by all. You are loved, blessed, and uplifted. I, Archangel Muriel, now leave you with the blessing of the Divine, of the earth, of the sky, of all, for you are so loved now and always. Goodbye for now.
