The new moon is a time of fresh starts, of planting new seeds and setting new intentions. It's a powerful time for manifestation, and a perfect time to perform a ritual to help you focus on what you want to create in your life.
There are many different ways to perform a new moon ritual, but the most important thing is to make it personal and meaningful to you. Below, we've outlined a simple ritual that you can use to connect with the energy of the new moon and set your intentions for the month ahead. All you need is a candle, a piece of paper, and a pen.
Cleanse your space.
The new moon is a time for starting fresh. It's the perfect time to cleanse your space, both physically and energetically. Start by giving your home a good cleaning. Open the windows to let in fresh air and wash all the linens. Then, cleanse your energy by smudging your space with sage or palo santo. You can also use this time to set intentions for what you want to manifest in the coming month. Write down your goals and put them somewhere you'll see them every day.
Set your intention.
The new moon is a time to set your intention for the month ahead. It's a time to start fresh and let go of anything that's been weighing you down. To do this, take a few moments to sit in silence and reflect on what you want to achieve in the next month. Once you've set your intention, write it down on a piece of paper and place it somewhere you'll see it every day. This will help you stay focused on your goal.
Do a tarot reading.
A tarot reading can be a great way to get in touch with your intuition and gain some clarity about what you should be focusing on during the new moon. To do a tarot reading, you will need a deck of tarot cards. Once you have your deck, shuffle the cards and then lay them out in a spread. There are many different spreads you can use, so you can either choose one that you are comfortable with or look up a spread online. Once you have laid out the cards, take a few deep breaths and focus on your question. Then, begin to interpret the meaning of the cards in relation to your question. Remember, there is no one right or wrong interpretation – trust your intuition and go with what feels right to you. After you have interpreted the meaning of the cards, take some time to journal about what you have discovered and what you plan to work on during this new moon phase.
Write in your journal.
The new moon is a time for reflection, so take some time to write in your journal. Write down your goals and intentions for the month ahead. What do you hope to achieve? What do you need to let go of? What are you grateful for? Use this time to connect with yourself and set your intention for the month ahead.
Meditate on your intention.
The new moon is a time to set your intention for the month ahead. Think about what you want to achieve or manifest in the next month. Write it down on a piece of paper, and then meditate on it for a few minutes. Visualize yourself achieving your goal, and feel the emotions that go along with it. Then let it go, and trust that the universe will help you to achieve your goal.
