"Reach for the moon. Even if you miss you'll land among the stars."
- Leonard Bernstein
Eight Moon Phases. Really.
If you’re here to learn how to make your wishes come true by following the Moon, you won’t find that information here. New Moon Wising is about deepening in to your own wise knowing and evolving consciousness. It’s about your emotional, psychological and spiritual development.
The moon is after all about reflected light that changes throughout its 29.5-day cycle, and here within lies the true magic. Following the phases of the Moon is a natural way to reflect on your life, and experience natural rhythms that mirror the transformative cycles of life itself.
Setting an intention at the New Moon is akin to saying “yes” to your life. Think of it like giving a nod to the universe that you are wanting to bring more conscious awareness to how you relate and respond to particular areas of life or qualities of being.
While the New Moon is considered the most important phase to work with consciously because it’s the start of the cycle, it’s just one of eight phases you can participate with actively. Whatever is emerging for you at the New Moon, nurture it throughout the lunar cycle in flow with the energy of each phase.
