Manifesting with the Moon

When I talk about manifestation it’s not really magic. What it is, is energy that is available for you to harness and use with intention. We are not granted a magic wand that we can wave and say “so be it”. Gratitude can serve toward our goals, but ultimately we do need to make an effort ourselves.

When you are trying to achieve something you must first plant the seeds and let it grow. This is what the New Moon is about. It’s a time when the Moon is dark, and ripe for those seeds. Look to the sign the New Moon is in and where that sign falls in your natal chart. Plant the seeds with intentions that fall in line with your chart and the lineup there.

The Moon in the Lunar Return chart is in the 8th house. I will be emotionally affected by the joining of resources with an intimate partner. My intentions will be on my public image and career, too. That’s the Saturn transiting my 7th square Uranus in the 10th natal. Relationships and career tensions.

You can see it in the Lunar Return, too. It puts me as an Aquarius Rising, which is my natal 7th house. So, my identity changes to living with a partner. Saturn is squaring Uranus in the 4th here. So, tension involving my identity surrounding home and family.

This can help me refine my intentions and be more specific. Of course, I tend to leave details out and remain unattached to outcomes, but ultimately the…
