By following and aligning with the cycles of the moon, we become empowered and create real results. The moon cycle helps us to attract all we desire and need to us. By working with the cycles of the moon, we get in touch with our feminine energy. Both men and women have feminine and masculine energy within. When we take action, we create results with our masculine energy. But when we tap into our feminine energy something truly magical happens..
We attract what we want with our mere thoughts, feelings, and intentions. This is because while masculine energy gets what it wants through action, planning, and logic, feminine energy gets what it wants and needs through simply being, receiving, following our intuition, and feeling our feelings deeply.
New Moon - The moon cycle starts here. During this time, it’s important to welcome the new moon cycle by simply contemplating and brainstorming what you want to attract in the upcoming cycle.
Waxing Crescent Moon - During this phase, Mama moon asks us to solidify what we want to manifest and attract towards us by setting clear intentions. Simply stating “I intend to manifest…” is enough, but to really energize your goals, its best to write down what you intend to manifest in detail. This way, your energy is focused on your goal solely instead of being scattered.
First Quarter Moon - Now it is time to take action. Obstacles, conflicts, and postponed results may occur during this phase. This is when we are being tested if we will stay true to our intention, or fall back into habits that prove we aren’t ready for what we wish to receive.
Waxing Gibbous Moon - You should start to feel the energy picking up now. Obstacles tend to fall away at this point, and it is asked for you to go back to your original intention and refine the details. Do you still want what you intended? What have you realized since setting your intention? What needs to happen to get what you want? What do you want to refine or change from your original intentions since then?
Full Moon - You will receive signs and omens now to encourage you to focus in the right direction. You will harvest the rewards and desires you intended now if you have successfully aligned your energy throughout the challenges, or if what you wished for is truly best for you.
Waning Gibbous Moon - It’s time to look within and introspect all we’ve learned throughout this cycle. What are you grateful for? Did you receive all you wished for? What else do you wish you recieved? What do you wish you knew before this cycle?
Third Quarter Moon - Release what no longer serves you or your intention. Let go of those pesky habits that have been dragging you down. Let go of the people, things, ideas, self-talk, etc. that have caused you unnecessary conflict throughout the moon’s cycle.
Waning Crescent Moon - To finish up, its important to rest in preparation for the new moon. We have less energy during this phase typically, calling us to empty ourselves before starting the cycle over again. By ‘emptying’ ourselves and becoming a bit detached, we can ensure that we can attract what we need most during the next cycle.
