Happy new moon!
Have you ever wondered what we can do during a new moon? New moons are great for new beginnings, and artists and creative people can use the energy of the new moon to their advantage.
As a lifelong moon lover, in my adult life, I have learned how to use the moon to help achieve things in my life. Though I am learning more about the powers of the moon every day and have much to learn, I can say with confidence that the moon is truly magical.
What is a new moon?
A new moon is the start of the lunar cycle or the first lunar phase. You cannot see a new moon in the sky, as it is completely dark. The moon’s energy is still 100% there even if you can’t see it.
So what does a new moon mean and what can we do with it? It simply represents new beginnings or a new cycle. I like to use the new moon phase to get my ideas and intentions into place for the next month, the next 6 months, or the rest of the year.
How can artists use the energy of the new moon to achieve what they want?
Anyone can use the new moon to their advantage to manifest their desired life and goals, but as an artist, I have realized how amazing the new moon is for us creatives.
Artists and creative people have lots of ideas, it’s natural. You constantly think of new projects, songs, or paintings you would like to create. A new moon is a great time to manifest these projects and ideas into existence.
You can do so by simply writing them down and collecting your thoughts. It is said that the best time to start a new project is under the new moon.
New moons are a great time to meditate and get fresh new creative ideas flowing. A new cycle, a new period of life, it’s yours to do what you wish with it.
Sit outside and bring a journal with you, and just write whatever comes to your mind. Whether that be new project ideas, lyrics, or whatever you need to get out. Just write!
Below are some ideas for what you can do during a new moon.
What to do during a new moon
✨ Start new projects
✨ Write down the goals you’d like to accomplish & by when
✨ Think of business names + business ideas
✨ Meditate to get fresh new creative ideas
✨ Create a vision board for your life or business
✨ Reflect on past work to see what has worked for you, what has not, & what you need to change going forward
✨ Sit outside under the darkness of the new moon and stargaze
I write down in my journal ideas I want to review this cycle, projects I want to start, and things I need to work on. Think of the new moon as a monthly work meeting where you reflect on the past month and what went great and what didn’t work.
Everyone will have a different practice or something that works specifically for them.
New moons are a blank slate, a new chapter in our stories. Anything is possible, and we have the power to change our lives. This is a great time to think of business names, or new projects and business ideas.
Light a candle, play some music, do whatever you have to do to relax, and let the moon’s energy help with the rest. Even though we can’t see new moons, don’t forget that the energy is there.

Are you going to use the power of the new moon?
As I learn more about astrology and the moon, I hope to write more posts on this subject. And as a Gemini, I constantly have 500 ideas going through my mind and am always looking for something new to learn (even though I have no time).
Tonight I am going to sit on my deck under the new moon and write out what I’m going to achieve in this upcoming cycle and for the rest of the year.
