The Virgo Super New Moon on the 30th August brings an abundance of cosmic offerings and will give us the chance to rebuild and restructure our lives by offering us grounding and super charged energy. It is bringing with it the potential to start new projects, a chance to start a fresh new beginning and lift and support us down the direction we wish to travel. We just have to be willing to release and let go of the past, so that we can move lightly into our future.
New Moons represent the start of a new lunar cycle and are a great time to plant seeds and set intentions for the month to come. While this is true of all New Moons, the strong, generous energy of the Virgo New Moon makes it one of the best this year and a powerful time for ritual work.
Virgo New Moon Ritual August 2019
This ritual is best done between August 27 -September 7, 2019
You will need:
- Smudging tool of choice
- 1 candle
- Bowl of water sheet of paper
- Moon journal / paper / black pen
- Crystal: either Selenite, Clear Quartz or Lapis Lazuli
1.) Start by smudging your aura and surroundings using your tool of choice. As you smudge your aura recite the following...
“I smudge myself with love and light, may the sacred smoke of this divine plant / wood carry away all that does not serve me. Into this smoke I release all negative or stagnant energy and free myself up for more divine love and protection. I am guided by the light, I am grounded, I am protected. I am love, I am light. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you"
As you cleanse your surroundings / sacred space recite the following...
“I call into the space healing and white light energy, I send out nothing but pure loving and healing vibrations. Into this smoke I release all negative or stagnant energy. I cleanse this space with love and light, my space is pure, my space is clean. I release all energies from the last lunar cycle and welcome in fresh new and loving inspiration"
2.) Have your ritual ingredients in front of you and light your candle. Sit or lay down in a comfortable position and begin taking 15-20 deep breaths. Tune into the breath entering and leaving the body. Bring your awareness to the rise and fall of your abdomen. With each breath you take, lengthen the inhalation, engage your diaphragm and push your belly out. Lengthen the exhalation and allow the air to empty from your lungs, your belly collapses, your body relaxes.
3.) Now your mind is in a relaxed state staying either laid down or sat in a meditation (cross legged position) place your right hand on your belly and your left hand over your heart.
Draw in the Virgo energy and feel yourself grounding. Visualise roots growing from your tailbone / Root Chakra and down into the earth. Either say out loud or in your head.. "I am rooted but I flow" (repeat as many times as you feel) With each breath that you take feel yourself as protected, nurtured, grounded and supported.
4.) Next you are going to recite 3 affirmations. Say the words out loud and write it down on a piece of paper. Repeat the following or write your own.
“I breathe in Divine light and exhale all that keeps me in fear. I release all that stops me from fulfilling my Divine purpose” then take a deep breath, imagining you are breathing in divine light in through your crown chakra. Then on the exhale, imagining you are releasing all that keeps you in fear.
Write down what it is you are releasing and put the paper to one side.
Next affirmation: “I align with my soul purpose and trust that everything I ask for is coming in Divine timing"
Write down your intention for this New Moon and set the paper aside.
Next affirmation: “I love myself and my life, I am thankful for all that life offers me"
Write down what you are grateful for and set the paper to one side. Take a moment to meditate on what you are thankful for. Inhaling deeply and filling your lungs with love, on your exhale imagine releasing any self doubts or insecurities.
5.) Now one by one recite your affirmation, taking each piece of paper separately and reading out loud. Offer it up to Mama Moon and burn the paper with the candle. Make sure you have your bowl of water handy.
6.) Next, write down something your would like support with or something you want to bring into your life. It can be clarity on a situation, or guidance for a new project or investment. When you are done, fold the paper up.
7.) Now take your next piece of paper and write down one action you are going to take to help make it a reality. It can be small, big, direct or indirect. Don’t overthink it just write whatever first comes to your mind. When done, fold up your paper.
8.) Finally return to meditation, call upon your Angels, Spirit Guides, Light Workers and Divine beings and ask them for help and guidance. Ask that they help support you and guide you gently in the direction you need to go. Recite the following or speak from your heart.
“I call to my Angels and spirit guides and I ask you to please send me the support I need. I call on you for your Divine guidance and support. I ask that you please help me manifest "........." Send me the love I need to manifest what I desire. I trust that it is for my highest good and shall be given to me in perfect Divine timing. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
9.) Lastly, offer your support and healing for the world. Return to meditation and place your hands over your heart chakra and visualise green energy pouring from your heart into whatever it is you want to help / heal. Maybe you are sending love out to Amazonia, or to people you know are in need of support or healing right now.
10.) During the next 2 weeks, you will see the moon waxing, growing more each day, its beautiful crescent moon illuminating the sky. Use this as a visual representation of your intention / desire growing and manifesting. Each day read aloud your intentions of what you want support and guidance on. Try each day to take a small step towards making this happen.
Keep your crystal of choice over your folded pieces of paper in your sacred space, this will help amplify your intention.
Happy New Moon!
