How to Prepare for the New Moon

The new moon is almost here and you might be wondering what to do or even how to create your own new moon ritual, and that’s why we’re here to help! Preparing for the new moon can be as simple or as complicated as you want, but what lies at the heart of every new moon ceremony or ritual is the practice of setting intentions. In this blog article, we’re going to help you figure out what a new moon ritual looks like for you and how to set powerful intentions during your ritual!

Prepare Your Space

If you do choose to participate in a new moon ritual or ceremony, the most important thing to remember is to prepare your space. This could look very different depending on your personality, what types of intentions you want to set, or even what mood you’re in that day. Something we always like to do to prepare for a new moon ritual is lighting either sage, palo santo, or other herbal bundles to clear the air of any stagnant or unwanted energy. Another thing we like to do to prepare for the new moon is taking some time to move our bodies in some way. This can be a quick workout or even a slow-flow yoga routine, but for us, it’s something that allows us to reconnect with ourselves.


Meditation is definitely at the top of our list when it comes to preparing for the new moon (or a full moon if we’re being honest). Meditating allows us to hone in on what it is we want to set our intentions on and sometimes it even gives us ideas on how to get to the next step on our path. If you’ve never meditated before, don’t worry. It doesn’t have to be this intense, complicated thing that it can seem to be. If you simply sit for 2 minutes and focus on something you want to achieve and how to get there, that could be your meditation! If you decide to do a guided meditation, there are plenty of free resources out there for all skill levels!

Powerful Intentions to Set on The New Moon

If you’re feeling ready to set some intentions during this new moon, we are here to help you! Some of our favorite affirmations for intention-setting, specifically on the new moon are:

  • I am magnetic and have the power to manifest whatever I desire.
  • I am a powerful creator.
  • I am sacred and my energy is sacred. I work hard to protect this sacred energy.
  • I am magical and connected deeply with my intuition.

A new moon ritual can be crafted to look however you want, so make sure to be intentional about what feels good to you. If you need more help with crafting a new moon ritual, check out our blog post that has more affirmations to guide you in your intention-setting journey!
