Can a New Moon Ritual for copy help you declare your copy intentions and then manifest them into your reality? The new moon happens when the sun and the moon come into alignment. During this phase, it is energetically the perfect time to breathe new life into any area you choose.
This is when you can plant the seeds of new desires. It’s a great time to start a new project, writing a new book, pitching a new service, or creating launch copy or even the content for a new website (or website overhaul).
For this new moon, we also got a solar eclipse. So, it’s a special day for sure. Today you’re setting intentions for your future along with the New moon in Cancer. Are you ready?
What to Expect in This Post:
In this post, I’m going to explore that and show you exactly how to do this ritual for yourself. You can repeat it every new moon cycle for any area of stagnation or any place in your copy (and your life and business) that you need a positive change.
As a spiritual entrepreneur, you can use the power and magic of the moon phases to amplify what you are already doing in your business.
As a professional copywriter and spiritual copy coach, I work with professionals like you every day to help them combine spiritual tools with practical tools to enhance their copy, their brand messaging, and to improve how they communicate with their target audience.

Why the New Moon?
So, why the new moon?
The new moon is a great time for setting intentions of what you want to create in this moon cycle. This makes it a really great time for creative projects, and copywriting and content creation is no exception.
Note: You do NOT have to be a professional copywriter to use this new moon ritual. This is for spiritual business owners who create their own copy. It is not exclusive to professional copywriters.
So, how does it work? Well, if you’ve ever done a New Moon ritual for anything else in your life, it’s basically the same thing. The difference is we will focus on your copy and content when setting your intentions for the New Moon.
Your intention-setting is going to be one of the most important parts. That, and the commitment to the ritual itself. This isn’t about making wishes or loose-ended goals. Rather, it’s about
For those who may not be all that familiar with moon rituals, let’s look at some basics.
Basics of Moon Rituals
New moons represent fresh starts and new beginnings. Full moons mark turning points, closure, or manifestations. This means creation – like starting a new project or creating new copy – is best done with the new moon.
The full moon is good for harvesting those seeds you’ve sown at the new moon, and checking in on your progress. Full moons are also a great time to make decisions.
The new moon is a good time for:
- Birthing your wishes and desires
- To prepare for a new direction
- Center your being
- Put your intentions into motion
- Create something new
Moon Rituals for Copywriting
That said, what can a moon ritual do for your business copy? As a spiritual entrepreneur, you’re already using other spiritual practices and rituals to manage your business and your own mindset around your business.
What many people don’t think about, however, is how this also relates to your copy and content. What types of things do I include in “copy and content”? Here are just a few examples:
- Blog posts for your audience
- Emails and newsletters
- Social media content
- Scripts for videos, webinars and Facebook Lives
- Any other written communication with your audience
If you’ve ever gotten stuck on any of these things, struggled to produce new content, struggled to produce content that really conveys the message you desire, or have problems creating copy that converts, a New Moon Ritual for Copy might be just what you need!
Let’s look at how to get started.
Supplies for the New Moon Ritual for Copy
You don’t need much to do this ritual. In fact, the only thing that is 100% required is something to write WITH and something to write ON. Remember in magick, it’s “whatever you wish” or “whatever you desire” so don’t stress about trying to get it all perfect.
There are some additional things I will talk about in this New Moon Ritual and if you have them, great! (As a spiritual entrepreneur, you likely do already.) However, if you don’t, that’s fine. It’s not a requirement. It won’t cause your ritual to “fail” (there’s no failing at this).
With that in mind, here are some other suggested optional New Moon Ritual supplies:
- sage (fresh or sage spray) or a smudging kit
- selenite for cleansing
- a notebook or paper to write on
- pen or pencil to write with
- candles – white or silver bring out lunar powers, but you can use any color you desire
The New Moon gives us a really potent time to do a smudging or cleansing ritual, which is why I include it as part of the New Moon ritual for copy.
How do you set your intentions for the New Moon? First, think about what you want to create in your business life.
In terms of copy, what would you like to create for your business?

Performing the New Moon Ritual for Copy
Alright, now let’s get into how you do it. If you’re feeling intimidated, don’t worry. This should be a fun and relaxing experience for you and I’m going to walk you through it, step-by-step.
Step 1: Clear your space and ground
As with any ritual, you want to first clear your space and ground yourself. If you have a sacred space, that’s great! If not, any quiet space will work. Just be sure you are not interrupted.
Bring your supplies with you, and start by saging the area to clear the space. If you have crystals, a wand, or other items in your sacred space that you want to use or have near you, this is fine, too. Remember, this is YOUR ritual and you’re free to change it up to suit your needs.
A good way to ground yourself in before the ritual is to sit still, take a few deep breaths or count down (in your head or out loud). Feel your breaths all the way down into your lower stomach.
There are many, many ways to practice grounding so do whatever works for you.
At this time, you may also light incense, or your candles.
Step 2: Release and forgive
If you set intentions on the new moon, you may have some blocks or emotions that surround that. So, it’s also a good idea to release these blocks. Forgive yourself for anything you may have tried or failed at in the past.
Allow yourself to feel whatever you feel, and don’t judge yourself for it. Now, I want you to write in your journal (or on your paper):
Tonight, by the power of the New Moon, I set the intention:
Now write what you want to make happen in this cycle of the moon.
Now is the time to address any blocks you are feeling. What’s coming up for you now? Where do you feel stuck in your copy and content creation?
What would it look like if it were easy?
What would it feel like if it were easy?
Just sit quietly with these feelings for a bit. Allow yourself to feel what you feel. If you find there are fears or negative feelings coming up, write them down. Don’t be afraid to acknowledge them and don’t feel like you have to justify them.
Once you’re done, some people like to fold or roll this paper up and burn it. You can do this over a sink, or in the yard under the moon. You don’t have to burn it. Again, there is no “right” or “wrong” way to do the ritual, but many people like the release that they feel from burning the list of the things they want to release. Do what feels right for you.
3. Give gratitude
Now we want to wrap this up with some time devoted to gratitude. A full moon will amplify whatever energy you put out there so this is a great time to practice gratitude.
- What do you like about your copy?
- Which piece of your current copy is really working for you right now?
- Is there one piece of content you are really proud of?
Again, in your journal (or on your paper) take some time to write about what you are grateful for in regards to your copy and content. Really take the time to appreciate the good stuff and soak in those feelings. Write down as many things as you can think of to be grateful for about your current business copy and content.
Invite the Universe to bring you more – to guide you through your copy process (or to the right expert to help you out).
Sit with the feelings of what it will be like when it’s all worked out.
4. Renew and release with a bath
Finally, you can wrap up the entire ritual with a nice bath. Water is grounding and it’s also symbolic of both cleansing and recharging.
This is a good time to run a bath, add your favorite bath salts or essential oils, and maybe even carry your ritual candles with you (or use new candles in your bath).
Give closure to your New Moon ritual by washing away the negative and the worry and recharging with fresh new ideas, open energy and excitement about your business. You can really anchor in those intentions for this New Moon.
I also find this is a great time for brainstorming or downloading new ideas for my copy and content. Now that I have cleansed and purged, I find many great, inspiring ideas come to me while in the bath after a moon ritual. You may even want to keep something handing for writing down those ideas when you get out.
Now you’re ready to co-create with the Universe for your content and copy needs!
This New Moon Ritual for Copy will help you to harness the power of the moon to help you grow in your business. This is just a guideline for you to get you started. I encourage you to make it your own.
You can repeat the New Moon Ritual for Copy each time there is a new moon and each cycle, you will learn more about yourself, your business, and the content you want to create for your audience.
