People have been keeping track of the moon’s phases for a long time. We’ve used it to harvest crops, tell time, and figure out what the weather will be like. The Sun may tell us what to do, but we’ve always known been drawn to the Mother Moon and awed by it.
As our minds grow, we realize that there is much more to weather and time than the moon.
Open your heart and mind, and tune into the energy of your spirit.
It’s just as important to prepare yourself for New Moon rituals as it is to do the rituals themselves.
Start by going into a state of meditation. Clear your mind and worry, fear, doubt, and other bad feelings will go away.
Light a white candle and say a prayer or call on your guardian angels, ancestors, mother moon, or source energy. Or, just picture letting a white light wash over you and fill your space. This makes sure that any energy that comes through is clean.
A New Moon ritual is best done during the New Moon, but it can still be used up to 48 hours after the New Moon. We get one about once a month, which is good.
What are the Meanings of a New Moon?
- Plant the seeds that will eventually bear fruit.
- Let go of things that aren’t serving you anymore.
- Plan alterations and be open to new experiences.
- Spiritual reset
- A moment of relinquishment and confidence
