The new moon is an opportunity to create new opportunities and set intentions.
It’s the perfect time of the month to reflect on what it is you desire and how to manifest those desires with sacred stones, crystals, writing down your intentions and then burning them, herbs, and candles.
A new moon ritual is a chance to welcome the moon back and use it’s light and energy to bring about your desires and new beginnings.
The new moon is an opportunity to invite a new love interest or improve upon your current relationship. It’s a time to set financial objectives and to invite creativity into your work.
If you have been feeling uninspired, bored, or lacking motivation to improve your life, the new moon is the perfect time to get clear about what it is you truly want and set an intention to get it!
Here’s how to perform a simple new moon ritual for inviting new beginnings into your life, work, and relationships! (PRECAUTION: please practice fire safety)
New Moon Ritual Step #1 - Gather the Supplies
- Several Candles
- Notebook or Journal
- Pen or Pencil
- Favorite Crystals
- Precious Stones
- Herbs (Hawthorn for Money, Rosebuds for Love, Sage for Clearing Energy)
- Metal Bowl
- Matches or Lighter
New Moon Ritual Step #2 - Set-Up Your Altar
Lay out the candles, crystals, precious stones in an altar fashion in a little nook in your home (if the room has a window where you can see the #moon this is ideal, but not mandatory)
New Moon Ritual Step #3 - Get Centered
Get comfy. Take several deep breaths, relax your body, and close your eyes. Open your eyes and light the candles being mindful of each candle.
New Moon Ritual Step #4 - Write it Down
Using the piece of paper and pen, write down EXACTLY (like every nook and cranny) of exactly what you want: a #soulmate, a life purpose, more #money, a baby, a home, clear skin...) Be as specific as possible and take as long as you light during this process.
New Moon Ritual Step #5 - Read It Aloud
Read everything on the paper out loud 5 times and make sure everything on your list you're setting the intention that there will be NO roadblocks to attaining these goals. Don't let #fear trickle in or worry about HOW it will happen, just trust the #Universe and use the moon's energy!
New Moon RitualStep #6 - Burn Baby, Burn
Loosely crumble the paper and then dip the paper into the flame on one of the candles and burn the paper and place it in the metal bowl and watch it burn. (if you don't have a metal bowl, you can walk to the bathroom and flush the paper down the drain)
