Moon Magic: Daily Tips for Working with Lunar Energies

Fascinated with the Moon? Eager to use her magical energy to manifest your best? We have you covered! From rituals, to spellwork, to energy healing and journaling prompts, we’ve come up with some creative ways to tap into this intuitive planet’s energy. La Luna has 8 phases, and each phase is symbolic of the process of birth, growth and letting go. Becoming in tune with the cycles is an ancient wisdom, a wisdom that we’re coming back to in this modern age. “As Above, So Below” is the adage of Astrology, and so, just as the Moon influences the tides and the water in our bodies, the planting of seeds and the growth of crops, so is her influence on our own energy. Here’s your guide to get going.

Ritual/Spell Suggestion

Anything that involves planting – planting a seed in your garden, planting a herb shelf, starting a project – will be an ideal ritual to do.

Another very common ritual is the writing down of your intentions in the time to come. It’s best to keep it simple. For example, write down just three intentions. You can then either burn or store these intentions to take a look at a few months down the line.

 

Journal Prompt

A question to start journaling with at the new Moon phase is: What do I really want right now? What will make me feel happy, fulfilled and in tune? What gives me joy? Where can I take the first step?

Ritual/Spell Suggestion

A great energy to work with oil is the energy of Ganesha, a Hindu deity responsible for removing obstacles. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Ganesha is a real being, so if you are comfortable with the idea of ‘praying’ to a deity, rather see this as a symbolic significator of energy.

Now, find the Ganesha mantra online – YouTube or Spotify will certainly have a few options. It goes: Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha. Chanting this a few times is an extremely powerful ritual. You can also do this with a Ganesha statue on your altar to make it double as effective.

 

Journal Prompt

A question to ask in your journal would be “what is standing in the way of my success and growth? What obstacles can I remove to help me reach my goals?”

 

Energy Work

Booking a session with an Aura Clearance Healer is a great way to remove any obstacles and clear your energy so that you can move forward with greater ease!

Ritual/Spell Suggestion

A delicious First Quarter Moon spell to do would be some candle magic. Choose the area of your life where there’s action happening or needed, be it career or finances or love. Now, get a yellow or orange candle to symbolize the fiery energy of this First Quarter Phase.

Light the candle and then close your eyes, visualizing the situation progressing. See that visual over and over again, at least five times. Feel that emotion of gratitude arising as you visualize yourself taking action. Allow the candle to burn all the way to the end, symbolizing the action process.

 

Journal Prompt

Write down in your journal the goals you see yourself achieving over the next couple of days, weeks or months. Make a loss and make an action plan next to that list. Go, you!

Time to do your own energy work! Yoga – especially hot yoga – is a great way to symbolize the moving of energy, the shifting of your story. Warrior Poses specifically are excellent for the action-orientated First Quarter Moon Phase.
