Whether you’ve noticed it or not, the moon has a subtle (or not so subtle) influence over your day to day life.
Think about it, if the moon can move massive bodies of water, it surely has the power to sway us itty-bitty humans (especially since ~60% of the our bodies are made of water)!
Similar to seasonal changes, the 28-day lunar cycle can inspire us to nurture different aspects of ourselves.
Aligning daily activities with the moon phases can help us feel more balanced, less stressed and super in-tune with our manifesting abilities.
Keep reading to learn about the different moon phases, their energetic qualities and how to manifest with La Luna:
🌑 NEW MOON • Reflect • Let Go • Set Intentions
When the moon is dark in the sky (risen but not visible), you may feel a strong pull to go inward.
The introspective energy of the new moon makes it an optimal time to reflect and get clear on the personal changes you’d like to make.
This is a great time to journal! Write about your current life circumstances as well as your deepest thoughts and desires.
Are you ready to let go of the past or start something new? Do you want to make a change in your relationship, home, job or general outlook on life? Is it time for a new adventure or creative project?
Embodying the energy of the new moon will help you identify where you are and where you’d like to be, an essential step towards achieving your goals.
🌒 WAXING MOON • Learn • Create • Take Action
As the moon grows fuller in the sky, you may notice your own energy rising.
To help fuel your personal growth, focus this increasing energy into the intentions you’ve set during the new moon.
Make a plan. What are you doing to achieve your goals? Write down the steps you can take and then start checking them off the list.
By consciously working with the energy of the waxing moon, your desired transformation will be well underway.
🌕 FULL MOON • Express • Harvest • Celebrate
When the moon is full in the sky, it may feel like the world around you is buzzing with energy, creativity and a zest for life.
Harness the expansiveness and express yourself!
Whether you’re closer to your goal or have already reached it, the full moon is the perfect time to gather with friends and loved ones to share and celebrate your progress.
🌔 WANING MOON • Rest • Nourish • Replenish
As the moon becomes smaller in the sky, you may notice your energy diminishing in unison.
When the moon is waning, it’s a great time to refocus your attention back on your inner world.
Slow down to rest, reevaluate and replenish so that you will be prepared for the next round of growth ahead.
Whenever and however you see the moon rising in the sky, consider it an invitation to embody the energy of the current phase while carrying out your daily activities.
