The new moon phase is a sacred time to set intentions for your new beginning. Today I’m sharing new moon journal prompts to help you capture the unique energy of this month’s new moon. It’s time for a fresh start!

What Is New Moon Journaling?

New moon journaling is simply the process of writing in your moon journal on the night of the new moon. This is the best time to reflect on your intentions, feelings, and experiences each month.

The new moon phase represents new beginnings, fresh starts, creation, and rebirth. So this is the time to dream big and set intentions for your future.

New moon journaling is a great way to track your progress and notice how your desires evolve over time. 

It’s also a beautiful way to look back on how far you’ve come as time goes by. Many of your new moon intentions from the past have already manifested! Acknowledging this fosters your gratitude practice and reminds you of your manifesting power.
