Moving With the Moon – Making Magic with Her Cycles

Let me tell you a story about the Moon, and share with you some magic from her cosmic grimoire.

We have been tracking our lives the with the Moon as a sky guide since the beginning of time. She ebbs and flows, emulating the sacred life cycle of the Divine Feminine. She shows us how to turn darkness into the material for making light, and she teaches us how to use this light to navigate murky waters.


She is the mentor and the muse that many spend their whole earthly lives seeking, yet she has been there all along. Within her rhythmic dance, there are great lessons to be learned.

She shines bright, to catch our attention and then plunges back into the depths to uncover more of her own sacred magic.

And just like you and I, she has moments of great brilliance and moments when she needs to hide.
It is her birthright to move through her sacred cycle, and it is ours to move with her.

Let’s explore her rhythms together and rediscover our own cyclic magic.

The Moon is reborn after a few nights of total darkness. She awakens, with a freshness and an excitement to begin a new cycle. This is when she sets the foundation and the intentions for the rest of the cycle.

New Moon Magic-
Building an Intentional Foundation-
Under the first light of the Moon, give yourself a moment to feel into where you want to be by the end of the cycle.  Spend time journaling, reading inspiring poetry, books, or blogs, and set specific intentions for the cycle.

As she waxes towards fullness, her energy blossoms and she explodes with productivity and growth.  When the Moon is in her waxing flow, we too have access to the expansive energy which we can use to call in everything we need to make our magic.

Waxing Moon Magic
Tap into that Outward Flow –
What do you need to produce for the world to see? An art project? A communal gathering? That book you’ve been waiting to publish? The Waxing Moon is THE time to set all of those projects into motion. Use her expansive, growing energy to build up all that you have been dreaming of.

Once the Moon is Full there is the light and space for celebration, creative expression, and new perspectives. The Moon shows all of herself, allowing the sun to shine its light upon her face. She celebrates herself, and we can feel her calling us back to our wild selves.

Full Moon Magic
Meet Yourself Where You Are-
Honor all you have achieved and everything you have to be grateful for. This is the TIME to meet yourself exactly where you are, and sing your own praises. — Then CREATE — Just for the sake of birthing something beautiful into this world – A meal, a poem, a ritual, whatever you are called to, make it real.

After the glory of the Full Moon, the light begins to fade. As she wanes, the Moon turns back into her own darkness. This is when her magic is strongest, and when her messages come through the loudest. Like the Feminine in her later stages, she is becoming more sensitive, and more aware of the darkness that is coming. But she knows how to prepare.

Waning Moon Magic
Let it go and Surrender to the Change-
Light candles and burn away anything that has been holding you back. Smudge your space and de-clutter your altar. Lean into any discomfort and discover the messages in the tension. You are your own medicine woman, you have the answers.

At the end of the cycle, the Moon goes dark, and the Divine Feminine goes quiet. For a few days the stars are the only lights in the night sky to guide us on this earthly journey. The Dark Moon invites us back to ourselves, she gives us permission to be dark, to feel our emotions, and to rest before the next swing through the cycle.

Dark Moon Magic
Listen in the Darkness-
At night, sit by yourself in a sacred place. This can be in front of your home altar, or in the great temple of nature. Just sit, and rest, and listen. If you can just be still enough to hear her whispers, the darkness has wisdom that will guide you through the next cycle. Allow the darkness to wash over you, allow yourself to be.

And when the Moon is New again, check in — You will find that you have put down new roots and that there is even more space to grow now. Connect back to your truth, reset your intentions, and get ready to move through the cycle once more.
