Harness the power of the full and new moons, with astrologer Keiko Ariizumi
There is a secret art for manifesting your heart’s desire: it uses the power of the moon and her cycle. Wish on the night of a new moon and watch your dreams grow as the moon waxes in the sky. When the full moon arrives, practise gratitude as if your dreams have already been realised. Wish deeply and the Universe will hear your call.
Grow with the moon
When you make a wish on the new moon, it comes true and that’s a fact! A new moon occurs when the moon perfectly overlaps the sun. It corresponds to day zero in the moon cycle. When you plant the seed of a wish on the new moon it bears fruit, and as far as the cycle of the Universe is concerned, that is as it should be.
That said, you’ll need to know a few tricks to harness the power of moon manifestation and write your wish using words of high vibration.
“Remove any unnecessary hindrance at the full moon”
By manifesting with the moon, I got into my first-choice college, got a job at the company I wanted to work for, struck out on my own at the perfect time, achieved instant success in multiple businesses of my own, received a miraculous offer to publish a book as a completely unknown author and won the heart of the man I love.
You don’t need hard work to make your wishes come true and talent has nothing to do with it either. Try these three sure-fire moon magic rules to manifest your dreams into reality.
3 rules for manifesting
1 Write your wishes
Write down your wishes not only on the new moon, but also on the full moon. For full moon wishes, focus on gratitude and write them as though the wish has already come true.
2 Imagine your desires
When you write a wish, I strongly encourage you to incorporate visualisation. While writing it down is a way to place an order with the Universe through words, visualisation does this through imagery.
3 Vibe with the Universe
When you write your new moon wishes, if all you do is make a laundry list of what you want, you’ll never see results. It’s the Universe that has the power to grant your wish, so you have to adapt the wish to its liking. Otherwise, there’s no point in writing the wish to begin with! If you write your wishes in such a way that the Universe takes notice, then you’re in the driver’s seat.
As my friend Ken said, there’s a certain writing style that shines. It’s like a “sweet spot” that puts the Universe in the mood. If you hit that sweet spot with the writing of your wishes, then manifesting becomes a piece of cake. As you get the hang of it, you’ll become so in tune with the Universe that it will feel as natural as breathing for your wishes to come true. Eventually, you’ll reach a state in which they come true before you even make them. This all becomes possible when you get on the same wavelength as our beautiful and mystical Universe.
Start to be in tune with the moon cycle and then align your wishing and manifestation practices to the moon phases. This month we have a full moon eclipse in optimistic Sagittarius, a new moon eclipse in lucky Gemini and a full moon in abundant Capricorn! Each moon is good for manifesting particular wishes.
Look on the bright side with Sagittarius full moon on the 26th May
The other day I was asked, “What do people whose wishes easily come true have in common?” I answered, “They are optimistic.” Having an optimistic outlook on life is the first prerequisite for your wish coming true. Why? Because everything that happens around you is the projection of your own mind and inner consciousness. Neither good fortune nor coincidence determines whether your wish will eventually come true – it’s all about the state of your mind. Being optimistic means interpreting all situations positively and envisioning a bright future.
The sign that helps us cultivate this consciousness is Sagittarius. Sagittarius provides us with endless possibilities and numerous opportunities. Only Sagittarius, with the “lucky star” Jupiter as its ruler, gifts us with amazing opportunities that feel like windfalls. It’s quite a generous sign, so instead of getting pessimistic and assuming your wishes are unrealistic, go ahead and ask for everything and anything you want.
When it comes to Sagittarius wishes, whatever your wish is, make it big. If you get too humble or settle for a wish that feels reasonable, you’re letting the power of Sagittarius go to waste. With Sagittarius, you have to go for the highest and biggest – the absolute best outcome you can imagine!
If you tend to think negatively, use a Sagittarius full moon to let that go completely and entirely and turn up your positive outlook. Sagittarius is also associated with overseas and travel. So if you’re looking to expand internationally or have a wish to do with foreign countries, be sure to make a global-scale wish with Sagittarius full moon.
A Sagittarius full moon also helps you to release:
• Being irresponsible, flaky, careless or deceptive.
• Being ambiguous, incomplete or not thorough.
Grab your chance with the Gemini new moon eclipse on the 10th June
Good fortune is all about timing. No matter how talented you are or how hard you work, if your timing isn’t right, you won’t get results and success becomes difficult. Whether your moon wishes come true also depends on timing.
The zodiac sign that rules the timing of all things is Gemini. If you think you always have terrible timing, you should make good use of your Gemini moon wishes.
Now then good timing is all about receiving the right information at the right time. So if you have been searching for months and still can’t find the connection you need, it’s highly likely that you lack the energy of Gemini. Use a Gemini moon to attract the best information.
Lady Luck is terribly quick to run away. We need to be fast on our feet in order to nimbly ride one wave of opportunity after another. You won’t need hard work to get luck on your side – once you use the Gemini moon to get yourself in the right place at the right time, luck will naturally find you!
In this age of information, we’re constantly exchanging emails, in both our professional and personal lives. There are more people who own a smartphone than not. Gemini happens to be the sign that governs everything pertaining to information and transmission. Words and communication are also ruled by Gemini. It’s not hard to see how significant it is.
Gemini represents curiosity and variety. It’s great at developing multiple things simultaneously. So if you have a long list of things you want to manifest, Gemini wishes are sure to be of great help. If what you are longing for is a stimulating life full of changes, entrust it to a Gemini moon.
A Gemini new moon helps you to:
• Communicate clearly and with precision.
• Receive the perfect information at the perfect time.
• Work and succeed in multiple fields simultaneously.
• Enjoy unforced conversations no matter who you are with.
• Expand possibilities by studying what interests you.
• Adapt to a new environment.
• Live an active life with ease.
• Profit from a second source of income.
• Gain worldly wisdom.
Succeed with the Capricorn full moon on the 24th June
Capricorn is all about getting results. Its mission is to achieve and gain prestige. If you have a numerical goal that you want to attain or a project that you want to succeed, manifest your desired results by using Capricorn wishes. No matter how hard you work, it’s all for nothing unless you produce results that others recognise – that’s the Capricorn mind-set. So of course when you write a Capricorn moon wish, it’s important to describe your desired outcome as clearly as possible. It’s even more effective if you include specific numbers, such as “50 per cent higher,” “ten thousand pounds” or “number one in sales.” When it comes to anything work-related, nothing beats Capricorn wishes! They will help you achieve all kinds of career success, from great reviews to promotions, to raises.
Capricorn does tend to focus on work, but it’s not entirely powerless when it comes to your personal life. If you want to marry someone who is much older than you or is of high status, the Capricorn moon can be a powerful ally. It’s also a good idea to get help from Capricorn when you want to be with someone who is honest, sincere and also down-to-earth.
A Capricorn full moon helps you release :
• Being inflexible, straitlaced or dull
• Being apathetic, cold or unsympathetic
