The Symbolism Of New Moons: Your Guide To The Lunar Phase
Astrology operates on cycles with New Moons representing the start of a new lunar phase. Occurring approximately every 29 days, New Moons are potent moments of initiation. During this phase, we are given a spiritual clean slate and an opportunity to start something new. The energy lasts around 10 days providing the backdrop for taking action towards whatever new realities you’re ready to create.
Utilize the energetically enhanced cycles by consciously setting intentions for your fresh start. Here is a guide to support you through these monthly occurrences.
The universe operates on energy and vibrational exchange. Spend time in gratitude towards your earthly experiences and the people in your life who have impacted you. Reflect on where you’ve been, what you’ve created, and where you want to go.
Create a lunar journaling ritual, allowing creative release and expression of your thoughts. Let this journal be your canvas for your dreams and intentions. Write strong affirmations around new purposes and goals for your life. Think of this journal as a place to set seeds of intentions towards the new.
The Reticular Activating System in our brains is a neurological system that acts as a filter for processing our thoughts. Similar to an algorithm on the internet, your brain searches for commonalities between thoughts in order to efficiently process information. Spend time visualizing yourself at the point of completion of your goal. This practice helps to train your brain to seek out and pull in thoughts that are familiar to this vision, supporting the effectiveness of execution.
Create space for receptivity by releasing the old. Let go of old beliefs, challenges, and limiting thoughts. As you release these pressures you open yourself up to receive and step towards new energetic doorways.
