We haz a New Moon dis week! Friday @ 9:17 PM to be exact, in the lucious, welcoming sign of Cancer, who just happens to be ruled by the Moon! Wear coral or white and burn violet to attract and enhance this New Moon energy!
What is amplifying this even more is that Friday is ruled by Venus, who symbolizes Love, frienship, reconciliation, and beauty! Combined with Cancer's stimulation of emotional growth and nurturance, it should be an excellent time for rituals.
Why not invite a few friends over for a New Moon Party repleat with party favors! Wish paper is perfect! These little packages come with anywhere from 10-25 pieces of paper, pencils and bases to set the paper on. This paper is fun to use because when you light it, it floats into the ether, taking your intention with it! Perhaps a piece of selenite, which represents Lunar energy.
Decorate in Moon paper decor, or, just a simple black and silver will set the tone! Small, intimate parties are also a perfect time to pull a card for each guest. You can also have a musical circle around a bonfire; or, a simple patio firepit will do just as nicely. There is something about a drum circle at night; repleat with rattles, bells, and a rainstick ( my favorite ).
There's a lot you can do to prepare for this New Moon. But, not too much. The waning moon is a time for study, meditation, and little magical work, except to banish harmful energies daily. Always protect yourself by cleansing your energy field and your sacred space.
Other suggestions include:
1. It's always interesting to check your New Moon journal from last month to see how much you actually manifested over the course of a month. If there is something undone, then add it to this month's list! If you didn't or haven't started a Moon Journal, it's highly recommended! It becomes an actual chart of manifestation and change.
2. Observe how much you've changed in one month. Are the intentions you set last month as important this month?
3. Be PROUD of yourself! Even if only one thing manifested, that is something to be proud of! A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step!
4.Don't agonize over something that could've happened, but didn't. The New Moon is a time to let go! So it's perfect to write that as an intention before releasing to the New Moon! This is a NEW MOON! A new beginning! Take advantage of that!
I'm learning about Goddess Durgā ( pictured ) right now. She is a New Moon Goddess, and all about courage and strength. We all need that to manifest the intentions we offer! Of course, you can always call upon any of the other Moon dieties: Diana, Hekate, etc. I believe I have outlined a Seeking Hekate ritual in the previous Meditation thread.
Also, Archangel Gabriel is a New Moon Guide! He is about communication and offerings. Archangels are here for humanity, not specific religious affiliates. Anyone can call upon and Archangel and receive assistance.
If you feel a bit funny, it's normal! Dark/New Moon energy is a bit strange! You can always chant your favorite mantra during the ritual! One of mine is Om Namo Narayani
( I surrender to the Divine ).
Whatever you choose to do, be it a gathering or private offering, belief is your basis for proof when what you desire manifests. Regardless of how much, or less; any bit is something to be proud of.
Happy New Mooning, everyone! ♥*♡∞:｡.｡ Stay Inspired ｡.｡:∞♡*♥
