New Moon Rituals-Do These Every Month and Watch What Happens

I am so deeply in love with the full moon and the new moon. Honestly, I’m like a kid at Christmas time waiting for Santa’s arrival.These moons are a time of so much growth, hope, possibilities and surprise opportunities. They are also a time for reflection, my favourite part, to see what’s working and what’s not. What your next move should be and where you need to focus more. Also, the biggest one, what to let go of. This is where new moon rituals come in to play.

Do you feel the energy?

I’m really sensitive to energies, all energies, and while not many are, some of you may discover that during the new moon and full moon time, you feel slightly different. You may be super emotional or super pissed off. You may feel pensive or you may feel fully charged and ready to dominate the world.

Whatever the case may be, there are energies during this time and if you don’t pay attention to them, you may not handle them correctly. If your energy is angry and resilient, it is definitely a time for you to practice more patience, not lash out. (honestly, you can only blame so much on pms!)

It’s always helpful to do a little reading up on things like this so that you learn how to work with the energies, instead of against them. I try to spend at least a couple of hours a week chilling with Kindle, reading, learning and growing.

New moon rituals

So it should come as no surprise that I’m a new moon rituals kinda gal. I don’t even set my clock or an alarm. I know exactly what day the new moon falls on weeks before it gets here and wait in anticipation for it. This goes for the full moon too! (I’ll be blogging about my full moon rituals as well)

Now before we get into this ritual thing there is one thing you absolutely positively need to know. I can’t tell you how many times someone has referred to it as woo woo or witchcraft. Don’t be ridiculous. Do you think your vision board or mind map is woo woo or witchcraft? Of course you don’t. But it’s still a manifestation technique. A ritual you perform to bring about goodness in your life, yes?

There are a few definitions of ritual and while many do make reference to religion, this definition says it best:

Nowhere in there does it say witchcraft, woo woo or religion. See? We’re good to go! Let’s get started on our new moon rituals.

Let’s begin.

The night of the new moon, find a relaxing quiet place, away from distractions. Turn off your phone, noisy notifications on other devices, etc. You only need about half an hour to an hour (or really however long you are comfortable to meditate, write and zen out)

  1. Turn on some soft light meditative music (I find lots of great tracks on YouTube) get your favourite journalling book or a nice clean notepad and your favourite pen. You could always do this on your iPad/Phone or computer but I find it’s better without electronics and to do it the old fashioned way.
  2. Light some candles, scented or not, and/or some of your essential oils in a warmer.
  3. Sit quietly and meditate for about 10-15 minutes, calming yourself and getting into manifestation mode.
  4. When you’re done, write out 5-10 wishes you would like to manifest in the next month. Make it realistic and believable. Manifesting $1,000,000 in a month, though could happen, is highly unlikely. If you’re looking for a new job or perhaps a promotion is quite possible. Wishes like that.
  5. Feel each wish you write out. Feel the feelings you would feel when the wish comes true.
  6. Carefully tear the page out and fold it up nicely. Hold it in your hands for awhile while really feeling each wish you wrote out. Sit in this for awhile. I usually sit here for about 10 minutes with this. I go through each wish and visualize them. The feeling is really quite beautiful.
  7. Now take this page and place it under your mattress by your pillow. Leave it here until the next new moon.

(on a side note-I like to have my favourite crystals close by too-amethyst, rose quartz, moonstone)

In a month

The day of the next new moon, take this page out and have a look at it. What manifested, what didn’t, what did you come really close to? Analyze it and see if maybe something just isn’t for you and you should manifest something better or different with the new moon for the following month.

Don’t Miss Out on the Energy From the March 2018 New Moon.

The new moon of March 2018 happened on the 17th of this month. I felt the energy like none I’ve ever felt before. I had an emotional dump a couple of days before it happened. I knew something was in the air. I felt it hard! Now if you know me at all, and follow my blogs, you already know I love the moons, full and new and the powerful energy that comes with them.

I set my calendars to these monumental events. Why? Because they impact me in such a way that I would be a fool to miss them. But you’re probably thinking, ok Iva, the new moon was last night, I missed it and all the wonderful energy it brought with it..

Wrong! I used to think like this too. Then I started digging a little deeper and researching and learning as much as I could about the moons and the energy they give us. I got good news for you!! Did you know you can still take in all the new moon’s energy for up to two weeks after it happens?


So what does this energy mean?

So what’s the big deal and why should you care? Lemme tell ya.

This month’s new moon is in Pisces which may not mean anything to you but listen up. Without getting too astrological on you, this means old wounds will surface so you can view them again. They come up for that exact reason. You aren’t done dealing with them and you need to!

It means it’s time to dig deep, real deep, into past conflicts, old hurts, things that are still weighing down on you and give them a fresh perspective. One of love, forgiveness and release. You already know holding on to all that old shit is no good for you anyway. Get rid of all this toxic energy, asap. Do what you gotta do but for the love of God and all things holy, dump it.

What now?

Forge ahead!! Now that you’ve dumped all this toxic energy (you did do that, right?) it’s time to look ahead into the future. I’m not big on planning because things change in a blink of an eye but I do “surface” plan which means, I have an idea and I should probably look at ways of implementing it because I think it’s a good idea!

You’ve got rid of the old and now it’s time to make room for the new. What do you want? What kinds of things do you want in your life? Do you already have an idea or dream that you let sit on the backburner but didn’t bring to the light because you were too bogged down with yesterday’s shit?

Release it now!! Your dream, goal, plan and/or idea. You have two weeks under this new moon energy to start making progress on this. Get at it!

But wait, there’s more to this energy!!

Mercury Retrograde is gonna be rearing it’s head during this time. Did you just groan? I feel ya. I remember a time when I used to be terrified of Mercury Retrograde. Not anymore. Bring it! Mercury is a blessing for me. It teaches me things like patience and strengthens my sense of humour.

During this time, while you’re dumping and planning, shit might not go the way you want it to. Don’t fret. That’s good ole’ Merc throwing curveballs at you. Take a deep breath and laugh it off. I’ve learned to do this now with this energy.

Remember, everything is temporary, even your troubles.

Get cracking!

You got two weeks to take in this energy and get shit done. Stop wasting your time wallowing over yesterday’s hurts and frustrations. Acknowledge them, bless them, deal with them and move on. You are here for so much greatness! Embrace the awesomeness in you and move ahead.

Have something big you want to manifest? Write it out! On the night of the new moon, I like to write out my wishes, usually 5 or so, and meditate on them. You still have time to do this. Write them out, feel them, release them and allow them to show up for you!

Ah isn’t all this energy stuff fantastic?
