The new moon is a powerful time of the month aligned with all things new. It is a phase that helps us welcome new beginnings into our hearts and offers us a clean slate to set new intentions for the future. Whether you’re looking to attract a new job or a new relationship, the new moon is the perfect time to focus on bringing these thoughts to life in the most magical way possible. And, what better way to do that than to do some manifesting?
Manifesting is a beautiful practice designed to help you work alongside the energy of the Universe to bring your dreams to life. It aligns you more with the frequencies around you to help you attract the future you want in an inspiring and rejuvenating way, and can help you to find more balance and gratitude in your life in the process. But, if you’re new to manifesting, understanding how to work on your manifestations for the new moon may be tough. However, the beauty of manifesting is that it comes in many different forms that can be done easily in your daily routine. And today, we’re going to tell you how.
In this blog, we’re going to share with you seven ways you can manifest easily with the new moon to help welcome new beginning into your life and attract the future of your dreams. Let’s get started.
1. Cleanse your space
Starting off, since new moons are all about new beginnings in many different ways, a great way to cast your intention is to cleanse away the old and welcome in the new. A general rule of manifesting is you can’t manifest when the energy around you is cluttered, which is why many often turn to meditation to help get stagnant energy flowing again.
As such, it is a great idea to take time to cleanse your space on the new moon to help push out any stagnant energy that may be lingering around you and help your intentions be cast more easily. Use a cleansing stick, a visualization practice, or simply open your windows and allow the fresh air to help push out the old and bring in the new. Whatever you do, make sure you take some time to tidy up the energy around you if you want to have the best chance at manifesting.
Next, when it comes to manifesting, one of the best ways is to journal. Journaling is a great way to gather your thoughts and help you hone in on your intentions for this moon phase. And one of my favorite ways to do this is to reflect on the last moon cycle and write a note to the Universe about my intentions for the next moon cycle.
Truly, working alongside the Universe is the key to manifesting your dreams and connecting deeper with yourself, as the Universe helps you align with and attract this energy. As such, this new moon, take some time to unwind, ground yourself, and write a message to the Universe. For this, I like to ask myself a few questions and reflect on them to help get myself into the right mindset. These often include questions such as:
Take your time with these questions and really allow your heart to shine through in your answers. After I have reflected on this, I will then follow these thoughts by thinking ahead to the next new moon, and focusing on what it is I wish to bring into my life by then. For example, if you wish to bring more self-love into your life by the next new moon, write down what ways you are actively going to do this. Perhaps, this could be by reading affirmations each day that align with self-love or making more time in your day for the things you love. Whatever it is, write down a plan for how you intend to bring these energies to life and how you’re actively going to take steps on this to make it happen.
After this, I will then journal a note to the Universe telling it my intention. I will write in an active voice using “I am,” not “I wish,” as this will help you get into the mindset that you are already attracting this into your life and will tell the Universe exactly what you are doing (example: “I am manifesting self-love”). After this, I will then ask the Universe to assist me with bringing this intention to life and end my journal prompt by giving thanks to the Universe for listening to my intentions and for helping me to manifest them.
Finally, I will read them over each morning before I start my day, recite them to myself, and continue to offer gratitude to the Universe for them to keep those intentions strong and on track through the whole lunar cycle.
Next, the new moon is a beautiful time to let your mind wander toward the possibilities and dream big. And what better way to do that than to create a vision board?
Now, a lot of people believe that in order to manifest, you have to spend a lot of time in meditation to bring it to life. And while this may work for some, the beauty of manifesting is that it can be done in many different ways, and I often find that when manifestation is done surrounded with something that excites and inspires you, it seems to stick a little better. So, if you work best when creating something with your hands rather than your mind, this may be a good method for you.
During this process, don’t be afraid to let your heart shine through by making a vision board from magazines or a virtual vision board on your favorite photo-sharing website, and allow your creativity to soar. Remember to visit this board every day and align with the vision you have created to keep that manifestation strong and keep that inspiration flowing all month long. With a little light-heartedness and fun, manifesting your future will be easier than ever.
Another way to manifest this new moon is to meditate. Meditating can help you to gather your thoughts, filter out distractions, and connect you deeper with the Universe and your authentic self. Here, you can go to a safe place that is entirely your own, where you can visualize all of your intentions coming to life, helping you to believe in them more and more.
With that said, a simple meditation for this, if you struggle with keeping your attention while meditating, is to close your eyes and take a few minutes to focus on breathing in and out before doing anything else. Once you feel relaxed, place a hand on your heart, and state gentle affirmations to yourself. A few of my favorite affirmations to recite when it comes to manifesting are: “I open my heart to what I desire. I am worthy of my desires. I am manifesting all of my desires into reality.”
Of course, you can use any affirmation that connects with you. The most important thing is that you believe in the affirmation you are stating, as that’s where the true power comes in. As always, remember to give gratitude to the Universe each time you meditate and thank it for helping you to bring your intention to life every single day.
Another powerful way to manifest with the new moon is to use water. Spiritually, water is believed to absorb our intentions while also helping to purify our bodies in the process. This is why you may have heard of spiritual practitioners energetically ‘charge’ their baths before getting into them to allow their bodies to absorb their unique intention while also detoxing from unwanted energy. As such, this is also a great practice to follow for the new moon as well.
While you can use the water of the bath or shower to wash away old energy and bring in the new, one of my favorite ways is to make new moon water. Just like making water on the full moon, all you have to do is simply hold a jar of water in your hands, speak your intention into it, and then place it on a windowsill on the night of the new moon to enchant the water with the energies of new beginnings. After this, you can drink it, use it to water your plants, add it to a bath, or use it in spells and rituals to attract something new.
However simple, this is an excellent way to manifest with the new moon and can be used in many different ways to add a little magic to the mundane every single day.
Another way to manifest your intentions with the new moon is to write them on a piece of paper and burn it. In many beliefs, fire can be used to both cast something out of your life as well as ignite the fire of something within your life, depending on your intention with it.
To attract something new, all you have to do is take some time to reflect on what it is you wish to attract. Write down words or sentences that resonate with this intention, and remember to state them as “I am…”. Focus on the words you write, and visualize what they will look like when they enter your life. Once you are done, you can then carefully light the paper and allow the burning flame to symbolize these intentions igniting in your life.
If you do this method, however, please remember to never leave any fire unattended and only burn things in a fire-safe container. Always be careful when working with fire, and always keep a fire extinguisher nearby for safety.
Lastly, another powerful way to manifest with the new moon is to create some new affirmations. While you may have had affirmations from the past, it’s always a good idea to come up with new affirmations each moon cycle as life continues to grow and change to keep you aligned with your goals and help you bring them to life.
For this, simply take some time this moon to sit down, focus on what you wish to attract, and write down a few statements in line with that intention. Of course, you can always look up example affirmations to use and add your own personal touch to them as well. More than anything, the most important thing is that the affirmations you use resonate with you, as that’s where the true power of manifesting comes into your life. If they connect directly with your heart, be sure to keep them around.
Overall, the new moon is a powerful time for new beginnings, starting fresh, and leaving behind all the rest. At its heart, manifesting is all about believing in the future you want and allowing yourself to have it. Whether you choose to do this by journaling or by meditating, make sure you make plenty of time to focus on manifesting your goals during the new moon and every day after if you want to invite their energy into your heart and create the future of your dreams in no time.

Bruja/o/x culture (brujería), stem from an ancient set of mystical beliefs and practices that have been passed down through generations in Latin America. It has its roots in the indigenous spiritual traditions of the region, as well as elements from African and European cultures and today’s Instagram hashtags #bruja and # brujería have over 2M posts combined.
As other magical practices, brujería orbits honoring spirits and deities, divination, nurturing specific traditional healing methods such as curanderismo, and rituals to protect oneself from negative energy. Get yer charms out!
In Latin American countries like Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Cuba, Colombia, and Brazil it is still a vibrant part of daily life for many people, though there are some variations depending on location. The original practice was brought over by Spanish conquistadors during their colonization of the Americas, and the stories say the cobblestone streets were “paved in slave bones”—see a pattern of repressed magic much? Seems everywhere we turn there’s a need to rise up from the lid put on us for being natural… No longer, though. You watch! This next 20 years will have diverse magical cultures openly practicing without fear, the time is nigh 😊🌿☽🌕☾
Now evolved into something unique to each region, brujería remains a source of immense pride for those who practice this tradition, which continues to hold strong despite attempts to marginalize or even eradicate it

Are you looking for insight into your archetypal planetary vibes? Do you want to know what the stars have in store for you in May of 2023? We Spirit Nesters can help you to gain insight into the events going on. With Pluto’s ingress to Aquarius, the upcoming trends vibrate with Uranian energy, so expect the unexpected! From love and romance to career and financials, May prepares us for individual and collective freedom or to take steps towards clarity and avoiding potential pitfalls. Read on to get into the flow of your elements and how each sign expresses itself in what's coming up!
Astrological Movements: In May, we see the Sun in Taurus and Mercury in Gemini, which will inspires an increase in mental acuity with a skosh of practicality. This is a sweet, sweet time for learning new skills or tackling projects that require careful attention to detail. However, it's also important to be aware of potential communication issues that may arise due to this pairing. You'll want to think carefully before fully speaking your mind during this month! This isn’t to say withhold info, but just be prepared to take the repercussions if you do, from both sides of the coin…
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) can find themselves feeling energetically active during this month as they take on new challenges with enthusiasm and learn through friction, that’s what squares do, and there’s potentially enormous power in that, though not always 100% comfortable. We all know what kind of magic happens outside that zone, though, yes?
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo Capricorn) can expect stability and security thanks to the positive energy flowing through their world right now, but it’s super important that you know in which house Aquarius sits, because that security can be going through do-over renos, you feel me? And we’re not just talking light stucco here, we’re talking a new roof level of shift, lol.
Air signs (Gemini Libra Aquarius) can prepare themselves for exciting conversations as creative ideas come into play – but don't forget that words have power too and can anchor you to stuff that you might not have anticipated! The intellect is in full gear and, depending on where your moon sits, you could be having emotional epiphanies in May that will set stuff free that you might have been holding onto for too long.
Water signs (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) can experience heightened emotions during this period which could lead to solidified feelings emerging that you FINALLY understand, so make sure you take time out for yourself to feel them all the way through, up from the heart center and like a pinball machine bounce them around until their out on paper or in song or other creative force. Emotional inventory always feels correct and May has the vibes to take you through with the strength of an ox 😉
