We talk a lot about Moons here at Astrology Answers, and the reason for that is we want you to harness every possibility that you can in order to create a more fulfilled and abundant life. And since we get to harness those Moon phases twice a month, we want you to use them as often as you can!
There’s no wrong way to make a wish as the law of attraction is always working, which is why it’s important to focus on what we want.
What is the Law of Attraction?
The law of attraction brings the energetic vibrations you’re generating on an emotional level and the images you’re projecting into the Universe to you. In other words, it’s karma: what goes around comes around.
It’s important to know the relationship between New Moon manifesting techniques and how that will help you with Full Moon manifesting. On the New Moon, we can more clearly see what is best to set as our goal and on the Full Moon, our energy is amplified bringing those wishes to us. This makes both days great for using the law of attraction to bring your wishes to fulfillment.
You are always entitled to wish on anything your heart desires, at any time of the month. But when you have Moon energy to help you out, you definitely want to make those wishes count. When you follow these rituals, you give your wishes that much more power by resting your faith in the Moon. Here are some tips to help you do just that.

First, Set Your Intention
Your intention is a declaration of what you want – your goals and wishes. The more specific you are, and the more concise they are, the more chances you have to see them come true.
Pick wishes that are straight forward and applicable to your day-to-day life. “I wish for a job promotion,” or “I wish for more communication between me and my love.” Make your wishes as direct as possible, and yes, you get to make as many as you want! So your first step in making your Moon wishes count is to simply get those wishes ready.
You definitely want to write your New Moon and Full Moon wishes down, or at least type them out. Start a “Moon wish journal” if you like to see how quickly your wishes come true, and keep a notepad by your bed, or write them on index cards. However or wherever you write them down does not matter, all that matters is that you do.
By putting them on paper, you are basically making your own written contract with the Universe on what you want.
Plan Your Moon Time in Advance
When it comes to the Moon, timing is everything. You get about 48 hours before the event and another 48 hours after, so here’s how to use that time as wisely as possible.
- Days 1-2: Start thinking about those wishes and intentions, use this 48 hours wisely!
- Day 3: This is the day of the Moon event, the date with the most intuitive and elevated spiritual energy. This is the best day to put those intentions in writing and follow the Moon rituals we will discuss next.
- Days 4-5: Act like your wishes have already come true. You’ve put it out there, now it’s time to show the Universe you believe. Be grateful and visualize these miracles in your life. Don’t forget the gratitude, as gratitude is the cue from the Universe to set those wishes in motion.
Create a Special Place to Make Your Moon Wishes
This does not need to take hours of your day every time the Moon becomes full; it just needs to be a quiet place for you to concentrate on the power of the Moon to grant those wishes. This can be a special place in your garden outside, or a small table on your deck in the backyard, or even a small corner on your nightstand with a few token items that will help you to harness the power of the Moon.
I always recommend including whatever token items that you have that are spiritual in nature that you already believe in. Crystals, gems, or Moon rocks are very helpful in capturing that energy. Tokens like this that mean something to you will be the most powerful.
Other things you may want to include are the elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air). A small token item that symbolizes each of these elements is a great way to harness the power of the Moon for your wishes.
- A small glass of water,
- A feather or incense for air,
- A candle for fire (white is preferred),
- A small stone or crystal is enough for the Earth. You can even include actual soil if you want to be literal.
It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes then for you to come up with your items to create your Moon wish sanctuary.

Perform the Ritual
Having a ritual is a way to activate the law of attraction because it brings all your attention to your desired outcome. The ritual is meant to get you excited about the goal you’re setting and have a time to visualize your request being sent out to the Universe connecting to the resources that will bring it to you.
You already know now that the first two days of Moon energy is the perfect time to plan. The day where you make your wishes and perform the ritual is Day 3. You can continue performing the ritual the next 2 days, but the last 2 days will focus more on gratitude than on actual wishing.
The actual ritual can be anything that you want it to be. A simple phrase like, “I see the Moon and the Moon sees me; the Moon will send these wishes to me.” is all you need for your ritual. Once you say this, read out loud the wishes that you have written down, and then thank the Moon for listening to you. You can light a candle beforehand, and close the event by blowing out your candle. You can also wait for the candle to burn out entirely, and when it does, make another wish. How you do it, or how much time you spend on it, is completely up to you.
The Final Ingredient: Consistency
You may take time at the New Moon and Full Moon to really connect with the Universe but your manifesting will be so much more potent if you keep building momentum for what you’re trying to manifest. There are three things you need to do each day to keep this momentum going as you approach the bigger Moon events each month.
Each morning and night, write down your gratitude for what you’re trying to manifest as if it has already arrived. For example, if you’re wanting a new home, write down, “thank you for my new home.” Be specific with where it is and how it feels. For example, “Thank you for my calm home that feels welcoming, is close to school and I can easily afford it.”
Visualize yourself having what you’re trying to manifest each morning and night as well. This act of doing this writing and visualizing twice a day is going to change the game for you when it comes to using the law of attraction and manifesting with the Moon cycles. Let us know the wishes you plan on making, and how well this ritual works for you.
