The feminine essence has direct access to the moon’s powerful energies.

Everyone can use the moon phases to manifest.

The feminine essence has a an innate understanding of this connection. We are vibrationally-aligned with the energy of the moon and can use the different phases for creation. When we remember the basic principles of these energies, we can manifest anything into being.

This guide will help you determine when and how to set intentions, when to take action in the physical world, practice patience or seek solitude. You can use this guide to manifest anything you want; love, prosperity, connection and bring your own creations into reality.

The Dark moon

The dark moon represents the three days where the moon is not visible. The dark moon period begins during the last visible crescent of the waning moon. The new moon occurs in the middle of this dark period.

This is an auspicious time to get rid of things you do not want – clutter, ideas, beliefs, etc., anything that is not serving you. Consider what you have created thus far, give thanks, and decide what you would like to manifest in the future. Find time for yourself and allow your mind to rest.

The feminine are the keepers of the unseen, where the darkness resides. It is in the darkness, within the unseen matter, where all of creation happens.

  1. Make some time for solitude, even if for a few minutes each day. During this time, allow yourself to dream of things you’ve never allowed yourself to dream before.

  2. This is also an auspicious time to organize and create some space and beauty in your surroundings. Do whatever feels good to you. Give yourself some downtime to enjoy music, a good book or movie, or to meditate a little longer than usual.

  3. Set your intentions on what you would like to release that is no longer serving you. Clean out your closets or remove toxic situations from your life, so the universe can replace it with something better.

  4. The most powerful creator is joy. Give yourself a break during these three days and find ways to create more joy in your life, even if it’s small things.

  5. Spend time with loved ones but stay away from negativity. Invite your loved ones to dream up beautiful manifestations with you.

  6. Do not watch television or radio news on these days (non-violent movies are fine, but no news, TV shows and no commercials). Manifesting like a goddess requires you to keep your emotional space as clean and pure as possible.


New moon ritual

The new moon phase symbolizes new beginnings in business, relationships, or in any area of your life that needs a reset. It’s the time to shift your perspective and set your intentions.

Intentions are seeds that you plant intentionally. You can set intentions to increase financial abundance, find a job, start a business or project, attract a romantic partner or simply allow more love and peace into your life.

Setting intentions is as simple as writing down your desires that you would like to see manifested in your physical reality.

  1. Perform this ritual on the day of the new moon.

  2. Wash your hands thoroughly in cool water.

  3. Find a quiet space and get comfortable. Light candles or burn incense to set the mood. You can use sage or Palo Santo to clear the energy.

  4. Write out a list of your intentions on a piece of paper. This can be done day or night. When you’re finished, write underneath, “This or something better.” We are often unaware of how the universe is working behind the scenes to fulfill our wishes. You don’t want to dismiss all the amazing work that the universe is doing for you, as your imagination cannot possibly conceive all the wonderful gifts that spirit wants to deliver to you.

  5. When you’re finished, fold the paper and bless it in any way that feels comfortable to you. A powerful blessing you can use is: “Source energy and the powerful goddess within me blesses these intentions to support the highest good of all. And so it is. Thank you.”

  6. Place the list under your pillow and leave it there until the seeds you planted begin to germinate.


Waxing moon ritual

The moon is beginning its journey back to fullness and gaining strength. This is the time to begin taking action in the physical world. It’s also a good time for study, organization, connecting or reconnecting with people. It is also a time of fertility, so this is a good time to conceive or begin a project or create something new.

It’s also a good time to take action in your career, look for a job, ask for a promotion, or seek your purpose. This energy can spark sexual magic in an existing romantic partnership if you set that intention without judgment or fear. Be playful and have fun with this energy.

  1. Perform this ritual in the days after the new moon. There will be a sliver of the moon in the sky. You can perform this ritual anytime until the day of the waxing half-moon.

  2. Wash your hands thoroughly.

  3. Find a quiet space and get comfortable. Light candles or burn incense to set the mood. It is important to be relaxed and at peace when writing your list.

  4. Write a list of all the actions you can take to help your intentions manifest. Make a list of at least 14 actions you can take to make your desire a reality and fulfill one small action each day.

  5. When you’re finished, fold the paper and bless it in any way that feels comfortable to you. A powerful blessing you can use is: “Source energy and the powerful goddess within me blesses these intentions to support the highest good of all. And so it is. Thank you.”

  6. Keep your list with you until you have completed each action. You may notice as the days go by, there are some actions you will not need to take because they are no longer necessary or you will notice that they have been done for you. When this occurs, give thanks to the universe for working on your behalf.


Full moon ritual

The full moon is the most powerful moon phase. This is most likely the time when you will see your seeds germinate. It is time for delving into the details of things and perfecting projects. It is a time of fulfillment and revisiting former partnerships, relationships and decisions around career.

The full moon can also denote a time of fertility and heightened spirituality. You can more easily tap into higher guidance and hear the messages at this time. Asking for an increase in your psychic abilities is a good use of this energy.

  1. Perform this ritual on the day of the full moon.

  2. Wash your hands thoroughly.

  3. Find a quiet space and get comfortable. Light candles or burn incense to set the mood. It is important to be relaxed and at peace for this ritual.

  4. Write a list of what has manifested so far and give thanks. You can also write a list of what you would like to perfect in the next moon phase.

  5. Write down all the actions you’ve taken to bring your desires into culmination. On the same paper, write down all the ways your intentions have germinated. Explain the specific outcomes and opportunities that have come your way. Allow yourself to feel gratitude for each and every hint you have received that your desires are unfolding.

  6. If your desires have not yet manifested, on the other side of the paper, write out your desires as if they have already manifested into your reality. For example, you can write, “I am so excited that [fill in the blank] has come into my life!” Explain in detail how it feels to have manifested your desire. Thank the universe for assisting you in making your desire a reality.

  7. Make another list of actions you can take during the next moon cycle to continue manifesting your desires. This will show the universe that you are willing to work in unison with forces beyond your control.


Waning moon ritual

This represents the moon’s journey from light to dark. This is a time of slowing down, letting go and allowing things to come to a completion. It also marks endings. This is the time to break bad habits, lovingly end relationships and peacefully close legal matters. It is a wonderful time for releasing illness, and emotions such as fear, anxiety and depression.

  1. Perform this releasing ritual any time after the day of the full moon. The moon will visibly reduce in size each day. You can perform this ritual anytime until the day of the waning half-moon.

  2. Wash your hands thoroughly.

  3. Find a quiet space and get comfortable. You can light candles or burn incense to set the mood. It’s important to be relaxed and at peace during this ritual.

  4. Make a list of what people, places, things and emotions you would like to release.

  5. Give thanks to everything you wrote. Without all of it, you would not be who you are today. Every experience has come into your existence for your highest good.

  6. Burn the paper. You can throw it into a fireplace or put it in a bowl and light it on fire. Be sure to contain the fire and do not leave it unattended or allow it get out of control. You may want to have some water on hand just in case.

  7. As the paper burns, say aloud, “I release all that no longer serves my highest good. Thank you for the experience.” You can bury the ashes or simply flush them down the toilet.
