Every New Moon represents the beginning of a new cycle which makes it the perfect opportunity to set intentions, manifest your dreams and desires, and release what no longer serves your soul purpose. Creating a New Moon Ritual can help you connect more consciously to the energies it brings forth as you make this your sacred time to dig deep into self and create a life you truly love.
New Moon Significance
Sun and Moon
When the Moon is new, the Luminaries — the Sun and Moon — are aligned in the same Zodiac sign. That makes it a charged time with concentrated energies of that sign. A New Moon is a symbolic point of attention, and a symbolic portal for new beginnings.
New Moon Intentions
A New Moon is the perfect time to set new goals and intentions and to be clear about the visions you want to manifest into your reality. In the New Moon’s energies, you can be open to receiving and allowing spirit to bring you any messages you may need at this time; it’s important to be still and listen. When we are still and silent, we can better tap into the messages from the Universe, and from our own intuition as well.
New Moon Ritual
Prepare a space for your New Moon Ritual, preferably an area where you won’t be distracted or disturbed. Cleanse and clear the space with sage or essential oils, and bring in any crystals or sacred pieces you would like to have with you during your ritual. If possible, place the crystals/stones on a window ledge and allow the New Moon energy to cleanse them. If you choose to, light some candles and or incense as it will create an even more peaceful environment. Be mindful of leaving your candles lit and be sure to blow them out!
Get yourself grounded and calm as you connect to the New Moon’s energy. Breathe in its magical, powerful and abundant energy and breathe out any stress, self-doubt, or negativity you may be holding. Take some time to review and reflect on your future goals, or if you would like to renew old goals, envision those as well. Feel with every cell of your body your dreams already created into existence, experience the emotions this manifestation would bring. After you have spent time reflecting and visualizing, write down your goals in a journal or note pad.
Also write the intentions and actions you plan to take in the manifestation of your goals and dreams as well as the Why. Your Why is the reason you want these particular dreams to manifest, and if your Why isn’t clear and precise, it will be reflected in the outcome. And remember, we co-create our reality with the Universe, think of it as teamwork. It’s never just a matter of stating what you want and then not taking action, it’s about taking full responsibility in the creative process and trusting the Universe will be there to support you.
Intention and action is everything.
New Moon Reflection
The New Moon energy is also a wonderful opportunity to empower yourself. To release any self-doubt you have been harboring within. It is a time to let go of all that is holding you back and to step into the power of who you really are. A beautiful, brilliant and bold soul who is ready and willing to stand strong in your own light.
See yourself standing tall and confident in a serene field of flowers with the warm sunlight pouring onto your shoulders. Imagine how it would feel to love and accept yourself for all that you are without the worry of what others may think. Understand that you are a unique being and there never has, nor will there ever be, another You. With the New Moon, you can tap into the New You.
After your New Moon Ritual, express your gratitude to the Moon’s energy and be thankful that it will bring to you all that you need in order to turn your dreams into a physical reality, and to become the greatest version of who you really are.
