How to Manifest with the Full Moon
Certain traditions, such as Wicca and Pagan, work closely with the energy of the moon. Most, if not all ‘moon work’ is performed in line with the moon’s cyclical nature.
When the moon is waxing (i.e. growing from a New Moon state towards a Full Moon state), this is a time to sow seeds and plant crops, and cast spells for attracting things into your life.
When the moon is waning (i.e. transitioning or ‘disappearing’ from a Full Moon state back into a New Moon state), this is a time to harvest crops, cut your hair and fingernails (!), and cast away things that you no longer want in your life.
So how does this apply to Manifesting?
Clever manifestors may have noticed the correlation between what Wiccans call ‘casting a spell’ and what manifestors call ‘conscious creation’.
While the physical methodology may be different (e.g. blending herbs and other ingredients to cast a spell versus using pen and paper, vibration, thoughts, or pictures to consciously manifest a desire), the energetic process is essentially very similar, if not the same.
My theory is that consciously manifesting or using a spell is the same thing: either process activates and focuses your vibration, the universe responds, and your desire manifests in your physical reality. (It’s just an observation though, and my knowledge is limited when it comes to Wiccan tradition. I’d love to hear everybody’s thoughts on this in the comments section below)
I should also mention that in some cases, the elements of spell casting and manifesting are exactly the same (speaking an incantation to cast a spell is the same as you, the master manifestor, verbally declaring and affirming your desire to the world).
Rituals for manifesting with the Full Moon
Sticking with the moon cycles is the best way to go when incorporating moon energy into your manifesting processes.
Use the waxing (growing) period to attract new things (experiences, people, objects – you name it!) into your life. Use the waning period to physically, emotionally, or energetically clear and discard unwanted things from your life.
Personally I find that I connect far more with the energy of the full moon than the waxing and waning periods, so I tend to focus my moon manifesting rituals on the full moon evenings only. I don’t exactly know how or why it works, but I definitely notice an extra surge power and joy in my manifesting practice on full moon nights. It may be because I adore looking at the full moon in the sky, and perhaps the loving, heart-full-of-love sensation I feel when I look at the moon in its fullness is what lifts my vibration and turbo charges my manifesting sessions.
Or it could be because the Full Moon energy has immense power and that we as humans have the ability and permission to tap into and harness this for our greater good? (I like to believe both)
If you’re curious to see how the Full Moon will influence your manifesting process, here are three manifesting rituals that you can try on tonight’s super moon, or on the night of any full moon.
1. Make a vision board
Nobody said Full Moon manifesting had to be complicated! So take it easy, put on some nice music, and cut and paste a vision board together on the night of the full moon.
Enjoy the process of deciding upon and declaring your desires to the universe through a vision board. The Full Moon energy will be with you throughout the night.
2. Write your desires
Take a sheet of paper, write “I MANIFEST…” or “I COMMAND AND CREATE…” at the top (use whatever feels most powerful to you).
Then, write down all that you desire in the present tense until you have no more to write.
Once complete, some people like to place their handwritten desires overnight underneath the light of the full moon, others put the sheet of paper under their pillow, others still place them on altars and in spots that are powerful and meaningful to them.
3. Perform a Candle Magic Ritual
Part manifesting, part Wiccan, this ritual rocks. Carve words or symbols that correlate with your desire – or simply write your desire – onto a candle (white is best, unless you know how to work with the different colours).
Hold the candle with both hands and spend time visualising yourself having and enjoying this desire now
Visualise this desire going into the candle
Light the candle and allow it to burn down completely, knowing that as it burns it is transmitting your desire out into the universe
Enjoy the ride as this new desire manifests into your life!

Use a candle snuffer instead, and re light the candle at a later time (it will still hold and transmit the energy from your full moon ritual).
Finish with a prayer and a dash of gratitude
After performing any of these rituals (or another of your creation), finish the process with a prayer or request to the full moon.
You can speak words that have meaning to you, but if you’re new to this and need some inspiration, my heartfelt prayer to the Full Moon usually goes something like this:
“Full Moon, I love you. I am grateful for your presence. It is a joy to be with you again. Please, be with me now. Shine your light and love upon my desires. May your energy assist in the manifestation of all of this or better. May I receive all that is in accordance with my highest good. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
And that’s it. Done! Manifesting with the Full Moon needn’t take long, and it should never be laborious. You are now free to go to bed, read a book, watch a movie, or do whatever else you so desire. Hooray!
