On New Moons release the past, any habits, conditioning, thoughts, beliefs that aren’t authentic or no longer serve you. At this time the Moon and Sun are united at the exact same degree in the sky, merging our conscious and unconscious aspects. Energy drops into a contemplative, reflective and quiet mode.
This makes rich soil for hacking your inner/higher self/subconscious. Get that 95% of your brain on board for future goal setting and planning.
Write down what you’re releasing, then burn as you visualize and feel yourself let go with love and gratitude for how they have served you up until now.
New Moons are about Manifesting so plant the seeds of intention you want to sew, then water them with action. Write up to 10 intentions/affirmations to bring into your life over the next six months, by the Full Moon in GEMINI. This is when the Sun & Moon are opposite each other facing off in polarity.
To take it a step further draw or make a vision board for your plans, make sure you add a fruition date. Add potency by fueling your vision with strong emotions, work in the positive rather than from a place of lack, fear etc. Feel and see your vision as if in the present. Seeds you sew in the mix will most likely germinate so make sure you cultivate exactly what you want.
Focus on areas and approaches that GEMINI rules, such as;
Shoulders, arms, and hands-and lungs
Nervous/restless mental energy
F.O.M.O (fear of missing out)

I’m not sure when we’ll hit ‘peak manifesting’ awareness, however, I’m sure this decade will be remembered for it..and unicorns. Gemini is all about our mental faculty-the rational mind, our thoughts, ideas, and mindset. On topic and the perfect time to revisit the connection our thoughts have to our reality, and therefore it’s role in manifesting it.
Is your mind your inner twin? Its contents are projected out into our life mirroring its narrative and re-enforcing the very thoughts that created that perceptive lens- creating a feedback loop. One twin looks out from inside while the other looks back in reflecting it. Get your twins on board to change up the game-Gemini is a trickster, and so is our mind, and our perception of reality. Gemini is highly changeable and versatile- a mutable air sign with wings on her feet and head indicating her speed of movement- we can harness that adaptability and change up our game via our mind. We don’t have to keep hitting the ball back- change up your inner mental game and play to win!
Courtney Act – this months practice
I’m sure you’re already aware so this is a reminder- next time you catch your self out with thoughts that aren’t worthy of your precious life here, simply step aside from them, let them go, clear the mental space and redirect the internal convo. The more you catch, clear and redirect the easier it becomes until it’s automated-like learning to drive a car! From this position, you’ll get your systems (reticular activating system-and the rest!) in alignment with what you actually want, and are more likely to manifest what you’re focused on, up shift the vibe you’re putting out – and your face/body language will communicate an entirely different story as well. People will smile because you’ll be smiling-from the inside!
La Lunas Planetary hookup
Mars, the planet of action suggests we find clever new approaches to Comms, our old ways are outdated-Mars combining (conjunct) with the South Node in Aquarius suggests we ditch the detached, over-analytical, science-y approach-and perhaps be aware of any push or aggressiveness in how we communicate. How can you soften your message so others can pick up on what you’re laying down?
Mercury in emotionally sensitive Cancer encourages us to feel before we speak-Compassionate speech, as the Dalai Lama (who has Sun in Cancer) might always recommend.
The north node in feisty Leo encourages us to communicate from a personal perspective, creatively with flair and drama-its ok to be noticed! What ideas are you most interested in, not what you think everyone wants…Let your intentions SHINE- if they wouldn’t win an Oscar, it’s time for a re-write!
In love and clarity,

I’ve drawn on her teachings of setting intentions and shared many of them in my new moon blogs (with tweaks of my own), as well as privately setting my own intentions accordingly.
