5 Witchy Things To Do On The New Moon

Well, the New Moon is right around the corner, April 7, 2016 to be exact, and I thought I would put together a list of five witchy things to do on the New Moon. Now remember, working with the New Moon begins on the day of the New Moon and ends three to three and a half days after the New Moon, so magical workings that take several days to complete are easily accommodated during this time.



1. Start a new project! The New Moon is a time for new beginnings so if there is a project you have been thinking about doing, this is the time to start it. Paint a room, create a talisman, start a blog, or begin a story, whatever you fancy.

2. Perform a job hunting spell or ritual. Being the time of new beginnings, this is a great time to perform a spell or ritual designed to find a new job or just increase prosperity. I know what I will be doing this coming new moon as I am on the hunt for a new job!

3. Meditate. The New Moon is also a time for self-reflection. Use meditation to reflect on your actions over the past month and see where you have grown and areas you need to work on. This is also a great time to meditate on self-love. Don't spend your time reflecting bringing yourself down; build yourself up.

4. Healing ritual or spell. The New Moon is also associated with healing and love. Use these energies to heal self doubt or hate, repair relationships, cure illness, or just recharge your own energies.

5. Reconnect with the Spirit and energies around you. While I don't personally believe in any deities, I do believe that everything has energy. During the peak of the New Moon, go outside and lay under the stars. Take a walk around the neighborhood or through a nearby forest. Reconnect with the Earth, plants, and other living creatures and most especially, the Moon. Even though the moon is not visible, this is one of the best times to draw on its power because it requires the use of your personal imagination and concentration. This is a great time to hone your skills. Don't let this opportunity pass you by.

What do you plan to do this New Moon? I'd love to hear in the comments below!

  1. Thanks for sharing Willow! I will be continuing my petition for a full time job. I love doing my art full time, but we are really tight right now financially so I have to get something so we aren't so strapped. Also I have been petitioning for my husband to get the job he has applied for and we have been waiting on for over a month to hear back about...in my last entry on my blog I talked about how we did cones of power at the local circle I attend and it was a powerful response to the two above petitions.
    I also want to use this time to reflect. I am trying to find balance with a full time position that I would actually enjoy, while still being active with my art. I am so grateful that my art is growing as much as it is, however, the money isn't coming as quickly we need it. So therein lies our conundrum.
    Many happy wishes for your success in your job hunt also! Blessings <3

    1. Thank you and good luck to you both! My job ends in June and as it stands, I don't have a teaching job lined up. I know it is early in the hiring season for schools, but I'm a planner and I'd like to know I have something lined up. We've been putting away money to cover a couple months of me being out of a job, but I am terrified.

  2. I'm so excited for the new moon! It always feels like there's some mysterious energy in the air.

    I think I'll start a new art project and throw myself into that. I always get a boost of motivation in the beginning, so hopefully I'll get inspired with the moonlight! :)

    Thanks for the post!
