This is a new moon meditation to help you set intentions for the coming weeks.
The new moon is the darkest night of the moon’s cycle. This is a fresh start to the moon cycle and a fresh start for all of us as well.
At the new moon, the moon is still. It is neither waxing nor waning. We are encouraged to do the same. To find stillness. In the quiet darkness of the moon, we are encouraged to go inward.
This is a time of introspection. A time to rest, reflect, and plant metaphorical seeds. To set new intentions, start new projects and begin to cultivate new positive habits. This is the perfect time to set some short-term projects or intentions for yourself so you can ride them through this lunar cycle, bringing them to a finish during the waning phase.
In this meditation we’ll inquire deeply to focus on the desires or intentions we wish to manifest during this lunar cycle.
Listen to what your heart whispering to you. What are your deepest desires? What do you want to see come to fruition in your life? Consider what seeds you wish to sow on this new moon; what do you want to manifest?
I invite you to write down your projects or intentions, and to keep this piece of paper somewhere you can see it, so you can stay connected to them as the moon waxes. We will revisit these intentions at the full moon.
