Alchemy Tips: New Moon Wishes

Many people focus on the full moon and all the strange or wonderful changes we see and feel at that time. The full moon is the ‘Mother Goddess’ of the moon phases, which means that it is the full fruition point; the time when changes you have put into place are blossoming and giving fruit.

The New Moon is spectacularly overlooked and yet, it is the most powerful time for planting your new wishes and confirming affirmations. A wonderful book on this subject is “New Moon Astrology; The Secret of Astronomical Timing to Make All Your Dreams Come True,” by Jan Spiller.

New Moon Power

Jan Spiller helps us to understand the significance of the New Moon ‘wishing power’ and reminds us that this phase of the moon is the ‘Maiden Goddess,’ for new beginnings and fresh starts.

Today, April 7th, is the New Moon, and Spiller suggests that we make our wishes within 48 hours of the New Moon, for full strength potency. Astrologically, the New Moon is in Aries, and that astrology sign’s qualities are enhanced during this time.

How to Set Your Wish Intentions

As we excitedly set up our wishes for this New Moon cycle, Spiller has some suggestions for us.

  • Know that your wishes can be for any length of time; one month, 6 months, 1 year
  • Make your wishes within 48 hours of the activation of the New Moon energy
  • Try to keep your list of wishes under ten individual wish statements
  • If you focus a couple of your wishes in one area, you increase the power of that wish intention
  • Do not combine more than one focus in a single wish statement (quit fatty foods and start exercising – not recommended to have two focuses in one wish)
  • WRITE them down and keep them in your New Moon Journal
  • You can use condition words like “easily,” “gracefully,” “quickly,” etc. in your descriptions of wish intents
  • Her favorite sentences begin with, “I want to easily find myself…” finish with desired situation (enjoying exercise daily; embracing a next, better job)
  • To take negative traits OUT, Spiller suggests using words like, “I want all inner resistance to ____ totally lifted from me,” or “I want all impatience totally lifted from me,” for example.
  • Use what you know are the qualities of the Astrological sign the New Moon is in at the time to enhance those qualities in your life

Since today is an Aries New Moon, let’s look at what types of qualities we could enhance:

Aries (the Ram) are known for (positive qualities):

  • Individuality
  • Leadership
  • Exploration
  • Fearlessness and taking risks
  • Assertiveness
  • New trail blazer
  • Boldness
  • Courage

You could choose to focus on enhancing and attracting more of these positive qualities into your life experience.

Aries (the Ram) are known for (negative qualities):

You could choose to eliminate these negative qualities by statements that release and lift these qualities from your inner being.

Soul Journey: Find Your Own Intuitive Path

One of my favorite activities is to look up ancient Alchemist recipes! I read the half-scientific and half-convoluted directions that were put down in earnest scientific and mystical exploration, and I wonder…how could they be so inexact in measurements? Cryptic symbols slipped in with notations giving exact measurements, and then the vague instructions of ‘heat between 250ºC and 350ºC’ for the completion of the formula.

What? How many times must I experiment with the heat element in order to find the right complement of elements? Is this any better than a witch’s brew of ‘a pinch of this’ and ‘a dash of that,’ but ‘only when the moon is three days into waning, and three dogs barked at midnight…’?

Of course, this is funny to us now, but to an ancient Alchemist there was an exact method that had to be followed and that would end in proper results. Half a dash the wrong way and you have ruined your formula magic.

But the ancient Alchemists had another secret – the subjective measurements were on purpose! This protected their special elixir because it required their own intuitive understanding of the recipe and elements in order to help it blossom in the bottle.

Exact Instructions in Spiritual Practices

How many of us have tried to apply this follow-the-instructions road with our Spiritual Journey? And sadder yet, how many of us have given up or have felt continually disconnected from Source because the ‘recipe’ did not seem to work for us?

It Happened to Me, too

When I began a serious study of spiritual topics, alternative healing modalities and deep inner core Soul work, I read at a voracious pace every book I could find on certain subjects in the spiritual and metaphysical field.

Meditation, for example, was an area that I really wanted to excel in – because I was impatient and terrible at quieting my mind. Like many others before me, I listened to recordings or followed exact instructions on how to get down to this inner, calm state of ‘no mind.’

The result? I fidgeted. I sat so long my bones ached. And, sometimes, I achieved a state of true peace for a few minutes. I felt like a failure and I stopped trying for quite some time.

Meanwhile, I was training in Reiki (hands-on healing) alternative healing method. This was a modality that I loved because of the grace and ease of it, and my dedication lead to Mastery training. Eventually I decided to move forward with teaching and initiations for others in order to spread this amazing healing method.

Discovering My Own Secret Recipe!

What I discovered while practicing Reiki healing: My mind got super quiet while facilitating a Reiki healing session for a client. So quiet, in fact, that my intuitive mind was able to connect more freely with Spirit Guides and Angels, and I was ‘moved’ all around the client’s body into healing positions that were slightly out of the norm for a traditional Reiki session. All of this co-creative union with Source worked for the client, bringing in deep shifts and pain relief. It worked for me because I got myself ‘out of the way’ of the healing process and achieved a deep inner peace that grew and grew over the years.

Your Own Intuitive Path

As you persevere forward on your own mystical inner path to reveal your true LIGHT and learn more about your soul purpose and life path choices, notice if you are trying to follow someone else’s exact instructions!

Gaining ‘guidelines’ from amazing teachers, instructors and gurus is necessary – each of us needs to look for guidance from the one ahead of us on the road, but our uniqueness prevents us from following instructions to the letter.

We simply must find our insights and co-creative union with Source with our own recipes!

Add in your ‘pinch of this’ and ‘dash of that’ in a creative and flexible manner that truly resonates for you. On my website and in my teachings, I provide instructions here and there on ways to ground, to do energy cord cutting, and more – but I fully expect my students and clients to find their own intuitive path within these guidelines.

“I accept within myself that my path, my progress, and my timing are my own, and it is perfect.”

Stop trying to follow exact recipes for your life that belong to someone else. Let your creative intuition take over!

Here are steps that might help when you are frustrated with a process and trying to find your own intuitive path:

  • STOP – relax and take some deep breaths
  • Open to your creative side – “I am an amazing, creative, and generous being, and I am greatly loved.”
  • Ask yourself, “In looking at this process that I am trying to follow, what works for me? What does not?”
  • Ask yourself, “How can I deepen and expand into what works for me?”
  • Review: “What new insights have I discovered about myself and MY LIGHT?”
  • Check in: “Is there a way being revealed (yet) on how I can share this with others?”

Take note for yourself and deepen into what is actually working for you so new discoveries will come your way – and REPEAT.

That would be my recipe, if you want to try it!
