Manifesting With The New Moon


I’m a big fan of writing down new moon wishes. Most of us are probably aware of the full moon. We see her beauty in the sky. We may have noticed our emotions become more heated around the full moon, or that babies are born around the full moon or that our kids and family act crazy. Two weeks later, there’s a new moon. Full moon is a time of completion, letting go and releasing. The new moon is the time of planting seeds, making wishes and watching them unfold.

I have been writing down new moon wishes for years. If you google, you will come up with a lot of information. I always turn to astrologer Jan Spiller for both the new and full moon information. I am so passionate about the new moon that I wanted to share with you some things that I have found helpful when using the new moon energy to make your dreams come true.

Here are my Top 10 Tips on Writing New Moon Wishes

1)   Handwrite your wishes on a piece of paper. I keep a new moon wish notebook. It’s fun to read over my past wishes and see how many have come true. Of course there are some wishes I’m still waiting to manifest.

2)   You should write down 2-10 wishes. Astrologers say not to write down more than 10 since the energy may disperse. I usually write 10 but there are times when I have written more. ***Update*** I ended up adding another wish to my list so this month, so far, I have written 11 wishes. 

3)   If something is very important to you, write the wish in more than one way. (Refer to Jan Spiller’s New Moon Astrology book for more information).

4)   I always end my list with “This or something even better is manifesting in my life today for my best and highest good. It is done, it is done, it is done. And so it is. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”

5)   It’s very important to know exactly at what time the new moon is since timing is everything when it comes to writing your wishes. There are astrological aspects called balsamic moon and void of course moon. The moon is not at her “best” so it’s best to avoid writing wishes at that time.

6)   The best time to write your wishes are the first 8 hours after the new moon. But the first 48 hours still work. (Again, refer to Jan Spiller’s site for the exact timing).

7)   I like to read my wishes out loud to make sure they feel good to me. And, it also adds an extra something something. If you write a wish and change your mind, or it doesn’t feel good, cross it out.

8)   I like to add the words “easily and effortlessly” and “today” in every wish. I’m not patient. I want my wishes to manifest fast and also in the easiest way possible. Does it always happen that way? No, but I like to put it out there. *** Update*** I decided to reread my wishes before I began chanting to Shiva. I realized that I didn’t like how the word “today” made my wishes sound so I crossed it out and wrote “every day.” 

9)   It’s a good idea to consider what sign the new moon is in every month. The first new moon in March falls in Pisces. According to Jan Spiller’s book, Pisces rules imagination, inner happiness, psychic sensitivity, trusting our intuition, spiritual healing, compassion and releasing helplessness. Pisces also rules self destructive habits or behaviors, drinking, food, criticizing others or ourselves, or procrastination.

You may want to consider writing wishes on these issues. I also like to find out what astrological house the new moon is hitting (I have a chart on For example, this new moon hits my 4th house. 4th house rules family and home. I made sure to write down a few wishes that related to my children, husband and home.

10) Have faith and have fun writing the wishes!

There are two new moons in March. This is very rare! The best time for writing down wishes for the new moon in Pisces is Saturday March 1st 3:00 a.m until midnight, Sunday March 2nd 12:01 am-6:03 am, 10:41 am until midnight, and Monday, March 3rd, 12:01 am- 3:00 am. Writing your wishes the first 8 hours after the new moon while avoiding the void of course moon, is the best time to write your wishes.

The second new moon is in Aries and arrives on March 30th. This new moon is very special because it arrives after the Spring Equinox. Jan Spiller talks about creating a treasure map or vision board on the new moon in Aries. I highly recommend doing that!

May all your dreams and wishes come true for your best and highest good today. Please keep me posted. I would love to hear from you and your experience with writing new moon wishes. Namaste.


Manifesting with the Full Moon

I love the moon.  I love writing down new moon wishes. I’ve written a lot about manifesting with the new moon so if you would like to read more, please do a search. You’ll find lots of goodies.

I also love looking at the beauty of the full moon. However, I’ve always looked at the new moon as the ideal time to manifest. Well, I do manifest (aka make my dreams come true) all the time, but I had the new moon up on a pedestal.  I felt that full moons generally make people act crazy and are best reserved for letting things go, ie, giving up a bad habit.

However, a few days ago as the full moon approached,  I started to question my beliefs. If I felt such a draw to the full moon, why not use it as a time to create, make a wish or set an intention?

A quick google search uncovered that a lot of people use the the energy and power of the full moon to manifest. I especially loved this article and this one.

So, I decided I was going to switch things up.  Continue reading

Make Your Dreams Come True This Spring

Today is the first day of spring. The new moon is on Thursday. So what does that mean?  According to astrologer Jan Spiller, this new moon is the best new moon all year for new beginnings.

I recently purchased Jan Spiller’s book, New Moon Astrology.  I have been reading Jan Spiller for years and have been writing new moon wishes for years. I have no idea why I haven’t purchased this book sooner! Jan Spiller devotes a section on the Spring/Aries new moon. According to her, creating a vision board or map during this time period is a very powerful thing to do. I created a vision board earlier this year so part of me doesn’t feel like doing another one. But, maybe I will change my mind by the time Thursday comes around.

May all your dreams come true this Spring!


Happy New Moon!

Today, Christmas Eve, is also the new moon.  This month’s new moon is in Capricorn. As always, I recommend turning to astrologer Jan Spiller for the information on how to best utilize this new moon.

I wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season!

New Moon: Time To Make Your Wishes

Today is Saturday, July 30, 2011. We’re having a second new moon this month. I always turn to astrologer Jan Spiller for new moon information.

I used to be very diligent about writing my new moon wishes every month. Sometimes my wishes came true, while other wishes have not yet manifested. However, when I think back to wishes like finding the perfect yoga teacher training program, I smile at how nicely that turned out!

Part of me wonders  Continue reading

Happy New Moon!

My life has been rather chaotic this week. I love being busy!

It’s been a while since I wrote about a new moon. As I’ve mentioned before, I always turn to astrologer Jan Spiller whenever there’s a new moon. She provides great information on how to utilize the new moon energy.

I’m sort of anal when it comes down to writing my new moon wishes at the exact time that Spiller recommends. Today’s new moon is at 3:47pm so have your paper and pens ready. I’m going to start thinking about my wishes…

Happy Manifesting!

Let There Be Light

Recently, I have had a similar conversation with different people on the same topic. I am not even the one bringing it up.  Clearly the Universe is trying to tell me something.

Out of darkness comes the light. What the hell does that mean anyway? I interpret it as a way of looking at something that probably doesn’t feel good to you. But as you look at it (the darkness) you bring it out of hiding. Once that happens (it sees the light) then the problem or situation may shift.

Usually whatever we are hiding is something that feels very uncomfortable (think anger or shame) so we avoid it. Try not to think about it. Pretend it doesn’t exist. But it does exist and it usually makes its presence known. It reminds me of what an old boyfriend of mine used to say. “What doesn’t come out in the wash comes out in the rinse.” So you may get sick or a headache or bump into things or however it occurs in your world.

If you take a moment to look at it, chances are, it won’t seem that bad. And, what has happened to me, is that I have experienced a shift. Something comes up, a hidden fear or belief. Gee, I had no idea it was there or that I was even thinking that thought. But now that I know it’s there, I can look at it and ask for healing.

One important thing to remember is make sure you replace it with something else. If you want to release the need to drink, then be sure to ask for peace or calmness or whatever you want to replace that need that is no longer serving you.

I hope this makes sense. I am still working on understanding how this all means. I experienced such a shift today and I’m curious to see how it manifests in my world.

Today, Tuesday, December 21st, is the perfect day for release. It’s the full moon lunar eclipse and also the Winter Solstice. I always turn to astrologer Jan Spiller whenever there’s a full or new moon to read her advice.

What I did was write down on a piece of paper with red ink a list of things that I wanted to release. Things that did not feel good and that I did not want in my life. I also wrote down a list of things that I wanted to replace it with. For example, I wrote down that I wanted to release feelings of anger, impatience and frustration. I asked to replace those feelings with understanding, love, joy and acceptance.

I did include Reiki in this meditation to help empower this healing. After I was done, I ripped up the paper and threw it in the garbage.

May the transformation begin for everyone’s Highest Good!
