How to Set Your New Moon Wishes

The New Moon is all about planting the seeds for the future and it can represent either short term or long term goals, things you would like to manifest and your goals and dreams.

As the New Moon symbolises new beginnings and fresh starts it’s the ideal time for making wishes, setting new intentions and planting the seeds for the future you can then watch them bloom throughout the remainder of the moon cycle.

The New Moon energy supports making changes, re-evaluating what’s going on in your life, new beginnings and planting the seeds for future projects and goals.

You can work with the New Moon energy when:

  • The new moon is exact – i.e the exact date and time of the new moon in your time zone which you can find out here
  • When the moon moves into the sign of the zodiac it will be new in. For example, during September, the new moon in Libra is exact at 19:26 GMT, but the moon will have already been in the sign of Libra since 11:03 GMT.
  • For 3.5 days after the new moon exact. When we work with the energy of all 8 phases of the lunar cycle we get 3.5 days for each phase.

New Moon Wishes Ritual

What you need: 

  • New Moon Wishes Sheet (see free download below)
  • Coloured pens for writing and decoration
  • White candle or tealight
  • Sage, incense or Palo Santo 

What to do: 

Create your sacred space

This can be whatever it means to you. For me, I remove clutter and untidiness from the room I plan to work in. I open the windows to invite new clean oxygen-rich air into my environment then sage the room to make sure it’s fully cleansed. I then like to light some candles and incense and listen to some meditation music in the background.

Call in your spiritual support

This can be in the form of your guides, angels, dragons, ascended masters, guardian angels or those who have passed. Whoever this support network is for you. At this point, you can also light the candle or incense to signify the beginning of your ritual. If you have an altar, you may wish to do this at your altar space.

Grab Your New Moon Wishes Worksheet

Using the silver pen (or any colour if you don’t have silver) draw around the symbols in the sheet to activate the intention of working with the New Moon. Then take your coloured pens and write out up to ten wishes/goals for the next month anywhere on the sheet.

You can then continue to decorate, colour or add to your New Moon wishes sheet as the power of intent is increased with the more energy we put into something so enjoy getting creative here.

Save Your New Moon Wishes

Fold the paper in half, in half a second time, then in half again and place your wishes sheet on your altar or somewhere else where it won’t be disturbed for the next 28 days. If you feel draw to do so you can place a crystal of your choice on top of the sheet to protect and guard your wishes. Go with your instincts as there are no right or wrong ways of doing this.

Hi, I’m Sarah Cornforth and I'm a Creatrix of Magick.  I have never really considered myself creative or artistic as I'm too much of a perfectionist for that and I still find it hard to accept the word ‘artist’ as a title for myself. Initially creating art was a way of coping with the curveballs of life. When I draw, or paint or craft I feel calmer, my mind slows down to a pace I can cope with and life becomes easier. I also love working closely with the phases of the moon and the cycles of nature in everything I do as the benefits are huge. At the end of 2017 a dear friend nudged me in the direction of creating art to sell, and if it had been anyone else who encouraged me I would have thought they were mad. But this particular friend has a special gift. She can see the life purpose of others. So I listened and I took every piece of advice she had to give me.....and here I am, creating art, working with the Moon, teaching people how to heal through Mandala art, feeling happy and sharing what I love with the world. Thank you for joining me on this journey.
