New Moon Intention Journaling!

Updated: November 16, 2020

New moon alert!

STOP what you’re doing…

DROP your pen onto the page…

And ROLL out those soul-deep intentions!

With the moon moving into Scorpio on Nov. 15, there’s no better time to set big, gorgeous New Moon intentions. And there’s no better way to dive deep and create certainty around those New Moon intentions than by journaling! 

Today, I’m going to talk a bit about the power of the New Moon for intention-setting and manifestation, what the New Moon in Scorpio means for us collectively, and how we can take advantage of this unique window of opportunity. 


The first 48 hours of a New Moon is a window when our creative energy is at its pinnacle.

New Moons have two powerful days, the day of and the day after, where setting intentions are most powerful. That means we’re able to effortlessly embrace our role as co-manifestor with the Universe. 

The Dark Moon (the night before the New Moon) provides us a perfect time to contemplate, meditate, and decide upon the intentions we want to see take root and flourish. 

And when we’re dealing with a New Moon in Scorpio, it’s such a beautiful time. Scorpio is all about deep healing and transformation (doesn’t that sound good right about now?!). Scorpio also carries an intense energy about the unconscious mind, which makes it especially exciting for creating new realities.  

There is so much potential right now with the New Moon energy! But don’t sit back and wait for stuff to happen…

By setting intentions now, at the New Moon, we have an opportunity to manifest new dreams and innovations. Right now, your innermost desires are infused with magic and spirit, so it’s the time to go deep, to stretch and grow, heal, and transform. 

So how do we really cement those intentions and manifest our desires? After decades as a master manifestor, I’ve found that journaling my intentions is a powerful tool to co-creation. 

Journaling provides a pathway to tap into the emotion and energy surrounding what you desire. As you write, you feel your desired outcome. As your energy moves in alignment with what you long to manifest, the Universe can’t help but answer you!


Tip #1: Ask yourself powerful questions

Sometimes we have a vague sense of what we desire, but we don’t know how to put it into words. The Universe responds to specificity, so it’s essential to be able to describe what you want in detail. This is where journaling questions can help!

For instance, Scorpio is about healing and letting go of past hurts. 

Ask yourself these questions and do a free-writing response. Don’t overthink it!

  • What do I need to support my intention to heal old wounds? 
  • What specifically do I want to let go of? 
  • What is it that I want to change? Why? How will my life be different when I’ve manifested this desire? 
  • What is the true desire that I haven’t yet admitted? 

Tip #2: Feel into it

To successfully manifest, we have to create energy around our desires. We do that by feeling it, as if it’s already here! That energy creates a magnet that draws like energy to us.

Once you “know” what you want… feel it. Ask yourself:

  • What will my desired outcome feel like in my body? 
  • What will feel different when I let go of old wounds/heal the past? 

Once you’ve written it down, live it. Feel it from head to toe. Is it warm? Has a weight been removed from your shoulders? What is different about your posture? How does your heart, your chest, your pelvis feel about this healing? 

Close your eyes and absorb that feeling. Get familiar with it. You want to return here as frequently as possible!

Tip #3: Release the outcome

So often we think we know what we want — but usually, we’re focusing on the package, not the present itself! The truth is, sometimes the intention of what we want is something we couldn’t even imagine. We may not know what the thing looks like… which is why we have to focus on the feeling, not the form.

Let’s say you’re longing to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. Your intention is to meet someone who makes you feel like a billion bucks (inflation, right?!). Someone who adores you, who treats you like royalty, who makes you laugh, who supports you. Then you get hung up on the idea this person needs to be 5’10” tall, have brown eyes and perfect teeth, and dress like a supermodel. Now, that can happen… but you don’t want to be so focused on how this person LOOKS that you ignore how they make you FEEL — which is really what’s important. You don’t want a Ferrari with a rusted-out engine and no brakes!

Accept that there’s an element of the unknown when we send our requests to the Universe. This is the hardest thing to get through our noggins! Our job is to stay in the essence, the energy, and let Spirit take care of the details.

This New Moon is a beautiful time for us all to consider what kind of world we want to live in.

It’s a time to be super-clear about what we want to experience, and then to act locally.

In our small little world, how can we help manifest that ideal world?

How can we move the collective forward? 

When we work together with Spirit, miracles happen. 



Here’s where to start with your New Moon Intentions. Today, sit down with your journal in a quiet place and ask yourself:

  • What healing do I want to see in the world? In my own life? Be specific. 
  • What would that feel like? Then sit and breathe into that feeling. Carry it with you during your day. 

You are loved and supported — by me and by Spirit.

The questions you propose here are amazing deep heal probing and touches that niggly that just do not go away. Say goodbye niggly, you now have face. Love it! 💞💞💞

      Thank you so much this has truly been enlightening for me….I can’t wait to attend the workshop.

      • Olga

        I appreciate the guidance that you are providing with this webinar. Journaling sometimes feels to me like that big monster black hole that wants your information but you don’t know how or what to write into it. Thank you for all the info you always provide and your beautiful cards that you share with us for inspiration.

  • Silvia Migneault

    Colette I thank you from the bottom of my heart !!Namaste.!

  • Kathryn

  • Randa Hawa

  • Shelley

    Thanks Colette! I love the clarity of your directions. I can attest that this works, I marvel every day at how things fall into place or flow where they need to flow. I’m thankful and frequently surprised.
    Setting intentions for the feelings I want to feel is clearly giving Spirit free reign to offer me all I need and even more, often what I didn’t even know I wanted ❣️
    Love and blessings💞

    Colette, I had never been able to bring myself to journal. I was afraid. No idea why. Thanks to you at Oracle Palooza and that 7 Energies Journal you gifted us and joining Oracle School, has changed all that! I love it now! There are days when I spend 2-3 hours journaling after picking a card from your decks. I have discovered so much about the inner workings of myself that I cannot thank you enough! I signed up, needless to say!! Thank you!💕🙏🏻

  • Hilde

    HI Colette, I have several carddecks from you, watched several Youtube videos with you,
    Have recently your newsletter, and now this…

    I just feel Happy to connect with you, much Looove ❤ to you… 😃😃😃 whoooh!!

    A Big hello from Belgium!

  • Wendy

    You are amazing!! I love your deep dive questions- thanks so much! I can’t wait for the workshop and I’m so ordering that book 😀 I started journaling after your palooza workshop, and it’s been so helpful! If I have scattered energy/emotions (going thru a very challenging transition!) I tell the Universe what I’m feeling and ask for guidance. I always get it, and it helps center my energy for the rest of the day! I can stay focused and centered. What a gift! Love you! xoxo

  • Elovingrose

    Lovely Colette!
    I feel we all connected and the the glue of that connection is love, understanding, humility and compassion. Sun shines on all good, bad, rich and poor, young and old alike. We are all one big family. So, I let that be my new moon intentions.
    Thank you for inspiration!

  • Anne Karma Morin

    Thank you.❤

  • Lin

    🙋🏻 Hi. Thank you for your love ❤️ For me, I wish the whole world would try to live the Serenity Prayer 🙏🏼 and in my life, that I will pray it, after meditation and throughout the day. I also wish that all people would make eye contact and accept who and what they see. ❤️

  • Constance (Connie) Baldwin

    Hope there will be a replay since I won’t be able to attend the live class on Saturday. I already journal but I’m interested in hearing your tips. Please allow a replay! Thank you!

    I will not be home tomorrow, but my daughter has sign up so I’ll be watching with her. I will make sure she puts my name in when she signs in. She just finished the Tarot class you gave.
