The moon has always fascinated people. Many included the moon or its phases in their religious rites or yearly festival calendars. The moon controls the tides and affects weather, so it is a powerful force.
Its phases can affect everything on earth and understanding how its phases can impact our world can make people much more effective in their ability to manifest what they desire.
Praying certain things or planning events around the various phases of the moon can help energize your life and clear negative energies.
What Is Manifestation?
Manifestation is using your mental and vibrational power to connect to the Universe and God to ask for certain things to happen. Some believe visualizing events will draw those things to you for them to occur.
This can be used for drawing finances, romance, or other things for you. The idea of using the moon to manifest is to align your manifesting goals with the timing of the moon. That way, you are agreeing with the universe and going with the flow of planetary alignments rather than going against them.
Here is a summary of how the Moon’s phases can be used for manifestation:
- The New Moon – Prepare Goals
A New Moon is a signal of a new start. It is when it is a slender piece of a crescent in the sky. Just as the moon signals a new month, you should prepare what new things you wish to pursue.
- Waxing Moon – the Start of Increase

- First Quarter – Time for Love
This means the moon is 25 percent through the lunar cycle and shows exactly half in the night sky. A First Quarter Moon is the perfect time for pursuing love, healing, and luck in your manifestations.
- Waxing Gibbous – Look Inside
Many people may not know the term Waxing Gibbous, but it is when the moon is about three-quarters lit as it proceeds through its lunar cycle. This means it’s the right time for prayer, stillness, and introspection. That makes it a good time to review what you have done so far and how to improve in all aspects.
- Full Moon – Use Your Power
This is when the moon is at its most powerful both in how it affects the earth and our lives. This is the time to manifest your desires!

- Waning Crescent – Reflection
The moon is returning to the sliver. The sun and moon will eventually rise again simultaneously to restart the cycle. As the moon cycle ends, you should meditate on how to better yourself and the world.
Some may not hold to the belief the moon can help in manifestation but the idea of a cycle for how you think and what you think about is a valid one. It can be effective in keeping negative energies at bay as well as identifying your inner desires, how to achieve them and how you can be a better you.
