What are they?
A simple moon ritual performed during the New Moon and Full moon phases each month can be both a theraputic and empowering experience. Working in alignment with lunar cycles is known to aid in manifestation of dreams and goals as well as helping us to release negative from our lives.
Just like the moon affects tides, we too are made from water and so it can have a profound influence on humans too. How we use this energy at potent times of the month can be transformational!
Performing a simple ritual at potent moon energy phases can helps us to gain clairity on what you want to create for yourself and what you want to change in your life.
Listen to more about this in my interview with Holistic, Spiritual Practitioner Stacey Brady here:
New moon a time for INVITING IN positive changes in your life. It's a time to visualize your biggest dreams and goals and journal or meditate on these. You can create a visualisation board for this, do a visualisation meditation or write them all down in your journal.
New Moon is when the sun and moon are aligned and so the moon is 0% illuminated (you wont see it!).
I recommend this Visualisation Meditation
- Write down what you want to invite in and display this somewhere.
- Use the MOONSTONE thumbstone crystal to help you meditate on these. Moonstone is known its abilotyto help us connect to the divine and helps with motivation. It's the perfect moon ritual crystal!
The full moon is a time of RELEASE. It's about dciding what no longer serves you for your highest good and deciding what negative aspects of your life or negative mindsets you want to let go of. The best ritual for this is to write them down and burn the paper (safely!) under the moon.
To go more in depth with moonology it's also important to note that each moon cycle has different relevance & power depending on planetary alignments & energies. If you would like to listen to a guided meditation relevant to the energies of that date, I recommend this You Tube Channel:

Also, the full & new moons are a great time to work with oracle cards!
It's up to you how deep you go into rituals as there are varying options, some including water, crystals, smoke and salt. The moon box I have designed for Boho Buffalo fans is based on a simple ritual of relaxing your body and mind and setting intentions for the month ahead. It's a process of self care and reflection in times when we need it most.
