There has always been a close connection between magic and nature. Astrology looks at the movement of the planets and the stars. You can also benefit from understanding the cycles of the moon and creating a new moon ritual.
Like clockwork, the moon undergoes cycles that we can count on. Each month, it starts as a new moon and then moves through its various phases until it reaches full moon status and then begins to recede again. So how can this help you in your life? There are certain activities that you will have metaphysical help with if you abide by the moon’s power.
New moons are times for new beginnings. When the moon is new, it is a time of great potential. So if you are starting something new in your life, draw in new moon energy. When there is something that I want the moon’s power for, I always plan a new moon ritual. Doing so creates a powerful intention and lets the Universe know that I’m serious about what I want to bring into my life. Here are some situations in which a new moon ritual might be helpful.
Reasons to conduct a new moon ritual
Again, new moons are about new beginnings so whenever there is something new you would like to bring into your life, a ritual could be helpful.
- You are intending a new relationship or are in the beginning stages of a romance. If you’re finally ready to move on after a relationship that has ended, a new moon is a good time to set that intention.
- You have a new business idea that you’d like to explore. If you’ve been thinking about starting a business on the side or even quitting your day job to start a lightworker business, look to the wisdom of the new moon.
- You have a creative project that you’re beginning to bring into existence. Whether it’s a book, a painting or even a new hobby you want to explore, let the new moon magic give you a push.
- You’re ready to start looking for a new job. The new moon can be the ideal time to start circulating that resume or inviting a colleague out to coffee.
- You’re getting ready to move into a new home or apartment. If you can set the move-in date, try to have it coincide with the new moon. If you’re searching for the ideal place, step up your search activities during the new moon.
A ritual to try
New moon magic rituals needn’t be anything dramatic. On the night of a new moon or one or two days later, simply write down on a piece of paper what new thing in your life you intend to bring into creation.
