New Moon in Aquarius, Thursday Feb. 11/ 2021 @ 2:05pm (EST)
This New Moon in Aquarius will be leading us towards the future. And though the effects may seem unexpected at first, it’s what’s needed to collectively adjust to this new era.
This Aquarian Moon will allow us to think and discuss how we can take action as a collective to help better society. It will evoke a need for emotional freedom. Allow yourself some personal space and time to reflect on what is important to you moving forward. This is some strong Aquarian energy, and we get to focus it in the direction of our choosing.
New Moons are considered a time to start fresh, to recharge our energy, and to center ourselves for the new lunar cycle that unfolds.
New Moons are great to:
· Begin new projects
· Set intentions
· Start new habits
· Develop positive beliefs
· Manifesting something new
Preparing for the New Moon Ritual
Gather Your Tools:
Notebook and pen for writing down your intentions.
A white candle is useful as these are magical objects, representing all four elements.
Meditation music helps you relax and maintain awareness during the ritual.
Incense and sacred plant medicine (such as sage and/or Palo Santo), will help you cleanse the air and your body before the ritual.
Essential Oils (Optional)
Crystals of your choice to help with manifesting or connection with your guides, choose crystals guided by your intuition.
You will also want to prepare a sacred space, this can be indoors or outside.
The Ritual Steps
First, light the sage and allow the smoke to wash over your body and to cleanse your space. Once the smoke has filled every corner of your home (or at least the room you will be performing the ritual), open a window to allow the negative energy to escape.
Then, draw yourself a hot bath and pour the sea salt, and a few drops of the essential oils into the water. Take time to relax. Perhaps shut your eyes and imagine a white light surrounding you, removing all the toxic thoughts, feelings, and attitudes from your body. Once you are finished, think that as the water disappears down the drain, your negative energy goes with it.
Now, sit in your sacred space, light the candle, and write down your intentions in a positive manner, as though they've already been manifested. The first step in giving your new moon intentions momentum is to declare them. This may be done verbally, though many people find it best to write them down. This concretes the wish and gives you something to look at in the coming days and weeks.
Open your notebook and date the first page. Write down a statement such as, "I accept these things or something better into my life now for my highest good and for the highest good of all concerned."
Begin writing down your desires. Your list may consist of a single item or you may fill several pages. Try not to limit yourself. If having many things in your life helps to fulfill you, then don't deny yourself these desires. Remember the universe loves details!
Once you are finished, take time to meditate on your intentions.
I like to place my written intentions on my altar and then I snuff out my candle to close the ritual and sacred space.
Rededicate Your New Moon Intentions
Each month, as the new moon returns, be sure to rededicate your intentions by renewing your list at a repeated ritual. This is accomplished by rewriting your list out using a fresh sheet of paper. Disregard any items that no longer feed your soul and add new things which will.
Try not to get in the habit of simply scratching out the items you no longer desire and adding the new stuff to the bottom of your old list. You don't want the energy of clutter and sloppiness messing up the path meant to deliver new wishes into your life.
