Setting Intentions with Crystals and the May 2019 New Moon

During this moon cycle, you may feel a need for security and comfort, and that tied with the openness and fresh energy of a new moon can leave you feeling a bit exposed. Make sure you are taking the time for self-care and a little indulgence. Be intentional with the seeds you are planting now, both for your dreams and for yourself.

Taurus is known for being stubborn, so be aware of the need to hold on to outcomes and argue moot points. There are some things that you cannot solve or move, and we need to be aware of where in our lives we are stuck for the sake of being stuck. Taurus rules the throat, so be especially careful of the words we use and the conversations we are having with others at this time. Use the New Moon energy to shift from that stiff and stubborn place to one where energy can flow freely.

How to set intentions with the May New Moon


  1. Clear Space

    Take time to clear space for your new moon ritual. Pick a quiet spot in your house where you can be uninterrupted for 30-60 minutes.

  2. Gather your crystals

    Gather your crystals and take a few moments to close your eyes and cycle through a few deep breaths – clearing the energy inside you and opening up space for new intentions.

  3. Set your new intentions

    Write down 2-3 new intentions you want to manifest during this moon cycle.

  4. Visualize your intentions

    If you’d like, you can go a step further by closing your eyes and visualize your new intentions as if they’ve already happened – feeling into each new intention.
