Love this book cover, love love parrot tulips and perfect title for this post
It’s a new moon time again, in Taurus this time.
It seems this new moon is about taking a fresh look at what we value, how we value ourselves and how that pays out in our lives.
It’s also a lunar eclipse – the second of the year. Eclipses are opportunities to explore and this one is about exploring if what we used to value is what we value now.
I’m no astrologist and if you want to know the full story. Check out planetwaves.net
However, I feel the full moon energies rather intensely and always do a new and full moon ritual.
New Moon time is . . . .
a perfect time to plant new seeds, to bring new ideas to light, to begin new projects or revisit existing ones with a renewed perspective.
So here’s the meditation
Do it within 3 days of the new moon
Before you begin. Ensure to make the time sacred for yourself. Set a time 5-10 minutes when you won;t be disturbed. Gather everything you need. Paper, pencils, markers. Light a lovely candle. Have a bath. Clear a space. play some beautiful sacred music. Sit at your altar or table with these things. It’s your little ceremony. Enjoy it.
When you are ready notice your breath. Bring your attention into your body. Deeply inhale and exhale as you allow your breath to flow up and down through your central spinal column washing away your day, clearing any worries or anxieties. Acknowledge any worries, thank them, then dissolve them. As your breath flows imagine a beautiful white and golden light filling you, expanding within you and around you. Anchor your body into the earth by dropping a silken cord deep down into the earth grounding you, connecting you with Mother Earth and as it moves back up opening up the gateway to your heart and crown and connecting with all that is.
When you feel grounded and present invoke the guides, angels and spirits you work with. Call for as much help as you wish. Your guides love to work with you and are always happy to receive your call.
Feel the golden white light surround you, protecting you as bask in its glow. Sit a few moments more and let your intentions form in your heart.
You may already know what you wish to achieve or you may not. Write the things you would like to bring in this cycle of the moon. It’s always a good idea to ask for everything to be brought in for your highest good and the highest good of all involved. Ensure to use the ‘get out jail’ phrase . . . . ‘this or something better’ at the end of each of your wishes and intentions.
Fold the paper and take a moment to hold it to your heart, feel it and then burn it. Watch it turn to ashes and feel what you have written release as the smoke rises.
Know that this ritual has aligned you with your spirit. Trust your prayers have been heard. Ask if your heart has a message for you as you close this ritual. It may come as a feeling, words, sounds or images. Allow a few moments for this to come through. Write it down. Sit with it for a few moments.
Give thanks to your guides, archangels and spirits for their help and guidance. Come back into your body and smile knowing that your prayers have been answered.
There is another ritual at the time of the full moon where you release what no longer serves you. I’d love to hear what you notice and please email me if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Leave a comment below as everyone has different experiences and it’s good to share as what you experience may help or answer a question/concern someone else has
t’s always interesting to hear how other are experiences the energies.
As they say as above so below.
Of course there’s another ritual at the time of the full moon where you let go of stuff but for now go create, plant seeds see what flows into your life in the next few weeks (Remember no attachment now)
