The moon is a bright and powerful celestial body that governs our oceans’ tides—but its power extends far beyond the physical sphere. Many individuals find inspiration and solace in following the phases of the moon in their own lives. Use the moon cycle to manifest positivity in your life and create your own meditative plan. Mark your calendar and begin your manifesting journey!
The moon goes through eight unique phases during its cycle—nine if you count its return to the new moon. Each phase is helpful for different elements of the manifestation process:
New moon: A fresh start, a time for setting new goals
Waxing crescent: Building resilience and spiritual fortitude
First quarter: Manifestations begin to take hold in your life
Waxing gibbous: A sense of pride in your hard work
Full moon: A celebration of positive energy
Waning gibbous: Focusing on restorative self-care
Third quarter: Fending off negative energy
Waning crescent: A reflection on your experiences
New moon: Time for new goals and manifestations
The night of a new moon is the darkest in the lunar cycle, as the moon is not visible in the sky. Begin your manifestations during this phase and set spiritual goals for yourself. Whether you choose to meditate on the moon’s energy, write in your journal, or create a vision board, the new moon is the night to do so.
Write down your manifestations to bring them into the physical space and remind yourself of your intentions throughout the month. Try using “I” statements in the present tense, such as “I am mindful of the energy I put out into the world.” Phrasing your manifestations as if they’re already true will boost your sense of positivity.
The full moon night is the brightest in the lunar cycle. It’s not just physically different from the new moon; it also carries several spiritual differences that can benefit you in new ways. At this point in the cycle, your initial manifestations should begin to pay off!
Continue your spiritual journey by tracking the progress you make toward your goals. Read the journal entries you wrote on the new moon night and continue to manifest your ambitions. And don’t forget to pat yourself on the back for all the hard work you do! Relax with a moon bath or take time to reflect on your past, present, and future.
If you wish to manifest positive energy in your life, take inspiration from the moon and use its cycle to inform your own meditative practice. Keeping to this monthly spiritual calendar will encourage you to continue manifesting good things throughout the months and years.
