The new moon is the best time to set your intentions and begin planting seeds for what you’d like to manifest. One of the easiest ways to do so is by working with new moon affirmations.
As you dream and soak up the freshly bloomed energy of the new moon, take some time to pick out affirmations that align with the energy you’d like to experience or the goals you’d like to accomplish.
If you don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place.
This new moon affirmations guide is filled with ideas you can use for your own affirmation practice.

What are affirmations and how do they work?
Affirmations are powerful statements that you can use to begin shifting your beliefs. If you struggle with negative thought patterns or are working on actually believing your dreams are possible, affirmations are a great tool to use.
Using affirmations regularly (and especially in tandem with a new moon!) is a great way to begin shifting your mindset, your habits, and ultimately your reality.
Best way to use affirmations?
There are many different ways to use affirmations and I always say the best way to use them is the way that feels best to you and also inspires you to actually use and embody them.
Here are a few ideas of ways to use your new moon affirmations:
- Stating them aloud (bonus if its in the mirror)
- Repeating them to yourself in your head anytime you need to refocus
- Writing them down in your journal (daily, if you really want them to work!)
- Voice/video recording them and exchanging with a friend (this is a great way to use them if you thrive from accountability)
- Creating art with them and hanging it in a place you see every day
- Adding them to your manifestation box
New Moon Meaning and Symbolism
Since we’re talking about new moon affirmations specifically, I thought it’d be good to quickly go over what the new moon stands for, from an energy standpoint.
The new moon is the time when the moon is beginning a new cycle. When humans used the moon to track time, the new moon would typically mark the beginning of a new month, or the passing of another 28 days.
The energy of a new moon can be considered a blank state. It’s a time to begin again, dream up new desires, and plant seeds for the future you want to experience.
Using affirmations at a new moon is an excellent way to harness the energy of new beginnings and start manifesting the desires of your heart.

How to Write Powerful New Moon Affirmations
The first thing to keep in mind when writing (or using) new moon affirmations is, what are your intentions? Meaning, what do you want to come from the use of affirmations? Do you want to heal a negative mind and self-sabotaging habits? Do you want to manifest something your heart desires? Get clear on what you desire and the end-result you have in mind.
2. Check the Zodiac
Paying attention to the sign that this month’s new moon lands in is suggested. This will help you find stronger themes to focus on and be able to utilize the energy of the zodiac sign to amplify your intentions behind each theme.
You can also check what sign the moon was in at your time of birth (easily done by running your free birth chart on a site like Cafe Astrology) and keep an eye out for the matching new moon. When the moon lands in the same sign as your natal moon sign, the energy is likely to be amplified for you.
Here’s a quick reference on what a new moon in each zodiac sign brings and supports:
Aries: warrior energy, initiation, confrontation, beginning
Taurus: practicality, slow and steadiness, music, money, aesthetics
Gemini: communication, curiosity, speedy, intellectual, social
Cancer: healing, homemaking, emotional, family
Leo: being the focal point of attention, happiness, creativity, pleasure
Virgo: perfectionism, service, analytical, routines, habits
Libra: peacemaking, relationships, artistic, balance
Scorpio: intensity, rebirth, intimacy
Sagittarius: learning, optimism, freedom seeking, travel, culture, ethics
Capricorn: ambition, career, reputation
Aquarius: humanitarian, revolutionary, eccentric, community
Pisces: mystical, dreaming, idealism, subconscious mind
However you decide to use your affirmations (journaling, saying them to yourself, posting them up in your home) its important to visualize the outcome you desire and really feel “as-if” its already happened.
Visualize what your life will look like when your manifestations become reality, this helps your mind start believing it is actually possible.
4. Write in Present Tense
When writing your affirmations, put them in the present tense of your desired reality. For example, “I am so thankful that I finally accomplished xyz.”
This is another way to start programming your mind for success and rewiring your beliefs.
