New Moon Manifesting

Let’s be clear…I’m no astrologist, but I have always found something magical in looking for guidance from above (as does everyone else apparently—hence, most religions).

There are so many details to get lost in…that’s part of what makes it so fascinating.

I am the kind of person who thinks I need to know everything or perfect the details before I do anything at all…analysis paralysis, I suppose.

Luckily, I finally snapped myself out of that mindset (at least when it comes to attempting to live by the moon) and have spent the last 3 years doing some very simple new moon manifesting with my little family.

As anyone with kids knows…simple = better.

So, here’s how we harness the power of the new moon to help our family reach goals and teach the littles to be aware of moon cycles and how it can impact their moods and feelings.

  1. Download the Co-star app. It’s free and will give you some insight into your natal chart. (You can add each child for $3, TOTALLY worth it to get that insight into their world).

  2. Get the “Moonology: Working with the Magic of Lunar Cycles” book (or check it out from your local library to see if it’s something that proves helpful to you before spending any money).

  3. Figure out what sign the new moon falls under (a quick Google search should get ya there).

  4. Reference back to the “Moonology…” book for the themes and details relating to the new moon when it falls under that particular sign (I also, usually, update my social media with these details on the day of the new moon).

  5. Check to see if that sign falls into any of yours or you kiddo’s “houses” and get further details about that in the “Moonology…” book as that means this new moon will have more impact on that person.

  6. Make a list of your top 10 wishes. If you have a little one that cannot write yet, have them draw a picture of their hopes for the next month, or so. (Be very specific with your wishes and try to focus them around the themes of the new moon).

  7. Post these lists/drawings in a spot where you and your family will see them often for the next cycle. (This helps with visualization and keeping your goals and wishes at the forefront of your mind and teaches the children the power this can have in their lives).

That’s it!

If any of this seems overwhelming or confusing—get the book.

I promise it will make more sense once you get your hands on it. And in the meantime, just make a list of wishes.

Also—you can’t really mess this up—just go for it and tweak this into something that feels right and works well for you and your family.

Did you try this? I would love to hear how it went!

Does your family already do something for the new moon? Tell me about it, we are always looking for new ideas!
