New Moon - a fertile time!
WHAT IS A NEW MOON?
A new Moon is essentially the opposite of a full Moon. During a full Moon, we see the side of the Moon that is being illuminated by the Sun, giving the Moon its bright, glowing appearance. During a new Moon, however, we see the side of the Moon that is not being illuminated by the Sun, which makes the Moon blend in with the dark night sky.
The spiritual meaning of a New Moon
The new moon is a symbol of a new day, new hopes, and faith. There is a rejuvenated feeling with the start of the lunar cycle, doing away with the old and starting a new chapter with the glamour of the moon. It is your chance where you can renew your strength, spirit, hope, and even love. But, of course, it all depends on what the new lunar month brings for you. The constant and continuous chances in life that the new moon beholds is sufficient to convince you of the spiritual significance of the new moon.
When should I do a new moon ritual?
Try and set aside time for your ritual within two to three days of the new moon while the frequency is still strong. Do your best to set aside at least 30 minutes where you can be alone without distractions.
What do you do during a new moon ritual?
Prepare sacred space. To begin, I always like to make sure my sacred space is clean and inviting.
Take a ritual bath.
Center & Ground yourself.
Energetically clear yourself and your space.
Write down your intentions.
Receive divine guidance.
How do you manifest new moon intentions?
Close your eyes and visualize whatever it is you want to do, see or be. Feel what emotions you'd feel when that intention manifests. It's that simple! Tap into those feelings and continue to visualize what you set as your new moon intention daily for the rest of the month and you have a powerful intention set!
