The New Moon symbolizes a time of new beginnings.
One of our favorite cleansing rituals to perform during a New Moon is to make a New Moon Wishlist. A New Moon Wishlist is a hand-written list of ten wishes. This is a good time to set your intentions because wishes are more likely to come true on the New Moon.
New Moon wishes and intentions have been studied in depth by various astrologers. Give it a try. It definitely couldn’t hurt and it would be totally awesome if it helped and your wishes and hopes came true!
I have been doing this since I was a kid. My mom introduced me to it. Keep a years worth and look back on them next year to see if you got your heart’s desire.
How to make a new moon wishlist:
Each month on the new moon write up a list of 10 wishes. Don’t write more than 10 wishes or they won’t come true. Try to make your wish list within the first eight hours of the new moon. If you miss the first eight hours, you can still make your wish list within the first 48 hours of the new moon. Keep a separate notebook just for your new moon wishes.
Write your list by hand.
Number and list each wish separately.
Don’t combine wishes or they won’t come true.
For example, instead of :
“I want to easily and effortlessly find myself getting married and becoming self-employed.”
You should make two separate wishes such as:
1. “I want to easily and effortlessly find myself getting married to the right person.”
2. “I want to easily and effortlessly find myself becoming a freelance journalist.”
Date each new moon list.
Some wishes come true by the next new moon whereas other take more time to manifest.
Look out for signs of development and size each opportunity as it arises.
For example, if one of your wishes is to become self-employed you may want to narrow your next wish down to exactly what it is you’d like to do for a living. Then keep your eyes and ears open for any opportunities that come your way. Sometimes we wish for new opportunities and when a door opens we let fear get in the way. When this happens you may need to make additional wishes to “become more confident and courageous” or “to recognize and seize opportunities as they arise.”
