A new moon symbolizes new beginnings and new intentions! New Moon Energy can be very powerful. Tapping into this energy can also support your dreams and desires. We can harness the energy of the new moon to fulfill our visions and make our desires come true by setting new intentions.
This is the perfect time to start fresh! You can also use the energy of a new moon to achieve new goals or to start a new project. Anytime during a new moon, take this time to reflect back on any goals you may have had in the past and set new ones for yourself.
Do not ask for too much, keep your list simple and realistic with maybe no more than 10 goals.
THE MOON PHASES
Each phase has its own energy and it’s different for everyone.
Below is a list of Moon phases, and the energy they create.
- New Moon: New beginnings & fresh starts.
- Waxing Moon: Building, accomplishments, creativity, growth and learning, positive transformation
- Full Moon: Abundance, harvest, wish-fulfillment, manifesting desires, sexuality, achieving all dreams, protection
- Waning Moon: Cleansing, releasing, shedding old patterns,
- Dark Moon: Rest, Peace, deep wisdom, divination,
INTENTIONS WITH THE NEW MOON:
Create a sacred place.
This can be an altar, desk, or corner in your home. Create a little area that is beautiful and reserved for your spiritual practices.This can be as elaborate or as simple as you want it to be. Make a space that makes you feel inspired & grounded.
Clear the space.
You can use sage a feather or a flame to clear the space you are working in.
Make a list.
I suggest writing them down and then speaking them loudly, by physically speaking them you symbolize your intention to manifest any your goals you have. Be clear with your intentions. Your intentions must not be focused on other people, you cannot change others.
New Moon Meditation.
When your list is complete spend 10-15 minutes meditating on it.
Close out the ritual.
Once your meditation is over, put your new moon intention list away until next month where you can go over it to see what has manifested. When an item on your lists becomes real thank the universe.
For the last year my Social Media Planner has been very helpful with planning out blog posts, Etsy, Twitter- personal account and RT Accounts and Facebook. I have really enjoyed my Marble Happy Planner but sadly once June is over I will be starting in a new planner. I am so excited to start in my new planner, I will most likely have a blog post up when that time comes.
I could not pass up this cover, I love it. The colors and the saying is one of my favorites. This cover is awesome, it snaps, has pockets and a pen loop.
In my planner I have a list of blog topics that I would like to write about. This helps me brain storm on ideas and I can keep track of what topics I have blogged about or ones I would like to. Once I move into my new planner I may rewrite this list out and get rid of ideas or add new ones.
At the beginning of every month I write down the topics that I think or will like to write about for that month. I might not get through the whole list, it might only be 4-8 topics for that month but it gives me an idea if I feel stuck or not sure what to write about. Or I can bounce back and forth between blog posts if I feel stuck as I write.
In the first two rows I write out what I need to do for blog post I’m working on for that week. Here I took pictures before I planned out the week. Once I move into the new planner I am thinking of changing the layout of how I do my weekly’s and even thinking of combining my social media and my wellness planner since I feel like I have too much space in both planners. I have the next six months or so to decide if I am going to do this, since my wellness planner goes until December.
Etsy, Twitter & Facebook
In the last box I make reminders to schedule thread topics for my Twitter RT account and Facebook Groups. This is also how I keep track what days are what threads and also to set up my scheduled blog tweets. I will note when upcoming relistings are due for my esty or any projects that I am working on.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my social media planner.
I know spring began in March. It is now May, and as I write this at 8:45 in the morning with 65 degree weather with a possible high of 83 and all of my windows open. Here in south-eastern Wisconsin it’s finally feels and looks like spring. With that I finally feel like spring cleaning and organising my home and life. Just kidding about my life, its pretty organized. But I do have projects that I would like to start, like going through my clothes, cleaning up the closets that I dumped random items in when we moved in December or organise our storage bin in our apartment again because of all the random items I dumped in there. I can only blame my self for that, but in my defense moving is very tiring.
As I was thinking of projects that need to get done, I realised this would be a great blog post to do. So I made a list of different ways you organize.

Blogging can be sometimes overwhelming. I decided to put together a list of blogging tools that helped me with my blogging game by keeping me organize and on track. I’m no expert but I’m hoping it will be helpful to you. These are 6 blogging tool that I think any blogger needs.
- Twitter- My blog has exploded by using twitter. I started this blog in march/april and got some traffic and didn’t start using twitter until July. The amount of traffic i get now just from twitter is unreal. Twitter chats and RT accounts are super helpful for connecting to other bloggers. I recommend joining a twitter chat just 1-2 a week and see for your self.
- Scheduling Tweets with Buffer/Hootsuite/Tweetdeck – This has been really helpful getting word out about my blog and for the Twitter RT account. I can tell the difference on my blog when I don’t have it setup for day. I use hootsuite to schedule tweets for my Twitter RT account Blogging Bees RT. I’m also trying out Tweetdeck where I can have all three under one and manage them in one place.
- Planner– A planner is really helpful in planning blog post, tracking views and so much more. I use a happy planner and I plan out the blog post I would like to write-up and schedule posts. I write prompts for each day to give my self ideas to write about and to a point I follow it.
- Photo Editing– Snapseed is a great app for editing photos, best part its free. I have it on my phone and iPad. I wish they had it for desktop/laptop. I love Adobe Spark. I think I make all of my blog titles in adobe spark. They have a mobile app and desktop version. Both are free. Canva is anther great app that can be used for photo editing. You can use canva on mobile and desktop, but with model i find a little tricky at times.
- Camera– Most of the time I use my phone camera on my iPhone 7 for convenience. Even though I have a really nice Nikon COOLPIX P520 and a Sony Cyber‑shot DSC‑W570. I really need to break these bad boys out again and use them more often. Excuse me while I go charge them up. You don’t need a fancy camera. If you only have a cell phone then that’s okay. Or if you’re not into taking pictures for your blog that okay too.
- Computer/tablet– You need ether one to write blog posts on. I know a few bloggers who write only on a phone because that’s all they have and that okay too. What ever works for you. I myself use my MacBook pro and my iPod pro. Sometime I will use my husbands Chromebook that we bought last year at tax time for under $200 at walmart, which if I didn’t have my MacBook or iPad, I would have bought one for myself. The battery life is better than my MacBook. I’m jealous.
