Every lunar cycle allows us to reflect on our past behavior. It also gives us the opportunity to set some new intentions, release all the negative thoughts and feelings we’ve been harboring, and so much more. Once the new moon comes, it means it is time for new beginnings.
This is why we’d advise you to try out a few rituals for the new moon – you can attract what you want and prepare yourself to receive it.
Whether it comes to completing a goal, a task, or an intention, each phase of the moon relates to a different stage of the evolution of completing it. Once you get a hold of the energy that comes with each stage of the moon, you can start working through some rituals to intensify the power of the intentions.
Speaking from an astrological point of view, a new moon happens when both the sun and the moon are at the same degree in the same sign. On the other hand, the full moon occurs when they are at the same degree, but in opposite zodiac signs. One thing to remember here is that every new moon results in a full moon six months later.
This is why you can set short-term goals every two weeks between new and full moons and even long-term ones, too, using the rituals for new moon cycles.
Since the lunar cycle commences with the new moon, this is the perfect time to set some goals and launch some new projects. All you need to do is think of them as a cosmic reset since the new moon happens monthly. These are the lunar energies you should use to create a clearer image of your intentions and set a good direction for yourself and your life.
If you are interested in trying some rituals for new moon cycles, here are some that we can share with you.
The new moon is an excellent way to start creating some new goals and intentions; hence it is the perfect time to tap into your thoughts and feelings. All you need to do is sit down and think about what you want to be. You can prepare a small sacred place just for you, relax with some herbal tea and make yourself comfortable with plenty of pillows and rugs. Close your eyes, place one hand on your heart and one on your stomach, and try to connect with yourself. Think about what you want to achieve, whether it is a professional or a personal goal. Ask yourself some questions about it, and notice how your body responds when you answer them. By doing this, you will know what is right for you. Once you feel this in your body and find the answers, all you need to do is be grateful for the process and write down your intentions.
One of the most commonly used rituals for the new moon includes the candle ritual. This will work particularly well if the moon is in one of the fire signs (Leo, Aries, or Sagittarius). It is the ideal way to think about your goal and start putting some energy into it. Choose a candle with a color that matches your intentions, light it up, and start writing down what you want. Keep doing this for a longer period – until the full moon is in position. Additionally, take notice of the bad signs that come up during the process. Once the full moon comes, write down everything negative you have been experiencing for the past period on a piece of paper, and release it all by burning the paper with the candle on the full moon.
This is one of the most popular manifestation techniques involving writing down an affirmation or a wish throughout the day. For example – if you want to receive a large sum of money, you write that down as often as you can throughout the day. The good thing about this ritual is that you can do it every day until the full moon arrives. If you want to do it for a longer time, you can do so for a period of 6 months, until the new moon corresponds with the full moon’s astrological sign. All you need to do is write down what you want three times in the morning, then six times in the afternoon, and nine times right before you go to bed.
Even though it is thought that any new moon is good for this particular ritual, we believe that the moons that fall under a water sign (Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio) are the ones that are the perfect fit for this. If you want to do this ritual, you will need a few crystals – such as a rose quartz crystal; and a few essential oils too, for example, rose and jasmine. You will also need a few rose petals too, a couple of candles, a feather, and a fire-resistant dish – some sage may be beneficial as well. Add the petals to the water and light up the candles. Furthermore, add the crystal and six drops of each essential oil, because 6 is the number of love. Once you get into the tub, visualize yourself in a loving relationship, and do this for about 20 minutes. After you have finished, place the crystals on your nightstand, and give the rose petals back to the Earth.
