The Best Full Moon Journal Prompts To Align With Lunar Energies

Are you a moon sensitive soul? The full moon is the absolute perfect time to break out your manifesting journal and set intentions for your next phase. Today I’m sharing the best full moon journal prompts to get you in tune with the unique magic of each full moon of the year.

What Is Full Moon Journaling?

Moon journaling is simply the act of writing in your journal on the night of the full moon. This is an ideal time to reflect on your thoughts, feelings, experiences, and intentions each month.

The full moon phase represents wholeness, completion, and clearing away the old to make room for the new.

So each month, when the moon grows full, we are reminded to clear away what no longer serves us and make room for upgrades.

Full moon journaling is especially effective when you keep it up for several months, so you can look back on your progress.

What Should I Journal on a Full Moon?

You can write about anything that’s going on in your life. But in general, focus your journal entries on:

  • What’s important to you at this time
  • How you’re feeling about different situations
  • Where you have room for personal growth
  • What you’d like to move away from
  • Goals you want to set for the future

The goal of full moon journaling is to help you:

  • process events in your life
  • keep your priorities in perspective
  • claim your manifesting power
