Do you have new moon ritual?

Do you have new moon ritual?

Sunday was a new moon and it made me think...Does everyone know what a new moon represents? Do people have new moon rituals? So, I thought I would write about mine, in hope that I can help someone create their own and also learn about what other people do! So please leave a comment about your rituals! 

I know a lot of people talk about a “full” moon and usually relate bad or weird things happening during a full moon. Full moons are actually a great time to let go of things that you no longer need in your life. This could be material things, relationships, emotions, anything! You may want to let go over your jealousy towards someone or let go of guild you feel, get go of a bad relationship, etc. 

So, let’s talk about what to do during a new moon and maybe even create a new ritual for you!

What is a New Moon? In astronomy, the new moon is the first lunar phase, when the Moon and Sun have the same ecliptic longitude.

What does a New Moon represent? A new moon is the start of a new lunar cycle, it’s a new beginning. People use the energy of a new moon to start new projects, set new goals, as well as reflect on old goals. It’s a great time to set intentions.

I know some may thing having a new moon ritual is woo-woo and if you do, then think of it as a day once a month for you to really think about your intentions and goal setting.  I am going to share with you my new moon ritual.

The night of a new moon, I always take a warm bath and light my new moon candle, so I can relax. After my bath I do a new moon meditation while just lying down in bed. After the 10-15 min meditation, I find meditation/calming music and set my phone to a 30-minute alarm. Then I journal everything I want to focus on for the next 30 days. What are my goals and intentions. When my alarm goes off, I am done journaling. I like doing this on the new moon because they are usually every 30 days, which is the perfect amount of time to refocus your intentions and goals.

If you have a new moon ritual, I would love to hear about it!

The rest of the new moons this year:
October 25th
November 23rd
December 23rd

Mark these dates on your calendar so you have three more times this year to set your intentions and goals!
