I follow a new moon ritual each month by taking a pause, meditating, and setting intentions for the next 28 days. I have found that the intentions I write out in my journal carry the most power.
MORE ABOUT THE NEW MOON by Phylameana lila Desy
The new moon is an optimal time for seeding your intentions. Seedlings need a period of gestation before they break through the soil and reach for the sunlight. This is also true for cultivating our ideas and clearing the way for our visions to surface in reality. The dark side of the moon, with its mysterious unseen forces, offers a nurturing environment where our intentions can establish roots before they begin to sprout and reach out to the stars.
