How to set intentions and get the things you want
When something in life goes wrong—you lose your keys, your laptop dies or that package you’ve been waiting for arrives the moment you’ve just popped out—you can more or less peg it down to Mercury being in retrograde. But what about all the good stuff? Which astronomical body in our solar system is there to support you; to help you get that promotion, that Bottega Veneta pouch you’ve been pining for or, let’s face it, that fit friend of a friend’s attention?
Well, you might be surprised to learn that it is the moon which may be of assistance here. Indeed, according to astrologer and author of Moonology Yasmin Boland, the moon has long been seen to possess the power to manifest your dream life, if harnessed correctly.
“Throughout history, the moon has been strongly associated with making magic,” says Boland. “In moonology, we work with the new and full moon, setting intentions at the new moon and releasing them up to the divine at full moon.”
