New Moon Wish Guide

I’m going to give you some specific ways to work with New Moon energy below, but first some basics. The new moon occurs when the moon is dark, just as it starts its cycle toward fullness. It is a new-beginning time, like a seed sprout pushing through soil. The first 48 hours after the exact New Moon are saturated with the energy of the zodiac sign that the Moon is in, and I will always list the time of the New Moon in my newsletter. I’ll always send the newsletter to you after the time listed because it is not suggested that you to begin to work with this energy before that time. You would be working with the waning energy of the Moon. You’d be working with endings. We want the powerful new waxing energy!

Each month we’ll focus on the energy of the sign of the New Moon. Each month I’ll offer an appropriate illustration that is associated with the archetypal energy represented by the Moon’s sign. Some people are more visual than others so I hope you all will enjoy the images.

Sometimes the image will stay with you when the intentions begin to fade.

Ok here’s how to work with New Moon energy. You can set some powerful intentions during the 48 hour period of the new moon that will have a powerful effect on your personal growth. It is good to take a few minutes and write these intensions down.
Be sure to write down your wishes in a positive self-growth format, such as… “I want to discover new ways within myself to attract the new man in my office.” Not, “I want John Doe to love me.” Or, “I want to be more and more agreeable and team-oriented”. Not, “I want my boss to stop being a jerk.”

Wishing in this way puts ‘you’ in the driver’s seat. You create your life.

Allow yourself a maximum of 10 wishes/intentions each new moon. They can all be about one specific area, but a maximum of 10. When we pig out with wishes, they are often all canceled.
