On Thursday 17th September, we have a SuperMoon at 25 degrees of Virgo, 12pm UK time, and it is the first in a line up of three Super New Moons. A SuperMoon means that the moon is much closer to the earth in its orbit, making the energy of new beginnings much stronger, and will be amplified by the activation of a portal that will guide us through the next three SuperMoons.
During a New Moon the sky is dark, even though the Moon will not be visible on this night, we will still feel the strong lunar energies activate within us.
While feelings of instability may arise under this New Moon, Virgo is the perfect energy to help us ground so we can anchor our dreams into this earthly plane.
Here is a ritual to guide you...
SUPER NEW MOON RITUAL
YOU WILL NEED
- Smudging tool of choice (eg. Sage, Palo Santo)
- Any crystals that resonates with the Root Chakra (earthy stones such as Hematite, Red Jasper, Carnelian, Garnet Shungite, Black Onyx, Black Tourmaline)
- A candle
- Pen/moon journal
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, I call forth the blessings from this sacred plant, I call to the spirit of Sage and ask that you carry away all that does not serve me. I ask with utmost love and respect. Into this smoke I release all negative and stagnant energy and free myself up to attract only what is meant for me. I call to Spirit for 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 ask to be surrounded with pure loving and healing vibrations. Into this smoke I release all negative and 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.) Light your candle, take a few moments to connect to the element of fire, watch how the flame flickers and dances, soften your gaze and breathe deeply as you look upon the flame.
Next, sit or lay down in a comfortable position and begin taking 15-20 deep breaths in and out through the nose. Bring your awareness only to your breath. Feel 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 completely 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 comfortable (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, I am grounded and divinely protected." (repeat as many times as you feel) With each breath that you take you feel yourself becoming protected, nurtured, grounded and supported.
4.) Next, take your grounding crystal of choice and lay down if you aren’t already doing so - place your crystal on your third eye and close your eyes. (You can choose to place it over your sacral or root chakra if you desire)
Continue to breathe and just be, feeling the crystal against your body, and let whatever comes up flow. Ask your crystal for guidance and ask your higher self to help integrate any wisdom or knowledge being passed through to you.
5.) Next you are going to connect to your higher self. Ask yourself these questions, take a moment to connect to what you are asking and let your pen flow to paper.
- “What is my dream life? What does my dream life look like? If I could have anything, be anything or go anywhere, who would I be and what would I do?”
- “If I wasn’t afraid and knew I couldn’t fail, I would…”
- “My Spirit Guides want me to know…”
Take your moon journal and begin to write all that pours out of you when answering these questions. Try not to think about it too much and just let whatever flows come through with no judgements and no over thinking. Dare to answer with full honesty and bravery, without fear of feeling like you don't deserve what your soul truly desires.
6.) Read back over what you have written, or reflect on how you are currently feeling. How did this exercise make you feel? If you have received some clarity, think about some actions you can take in the coming months and write those down too.
7.) Next, state 3 affirmations that are in alignment with that you have just written, and speak them out loud, sending your magick out into the Universe.
You can write your own or recite the following:
- "I live my life from a place of authenticity."
- "I release all from my life that keeps me in fear."
- "Everything I need is already within me."
8.) Finally, take your crystal and hold it in your left hand, cover it with your right hand and meditate for a moment on something you want to manifest in the next lunar cycle. Make a wish and blow into your hands. Inhale, and imagine you are blowing the wish into the crystal using the power of your exhale. This seals your intention. Blow your candle out. Sleep with the crystal next to you, or under your pillow, meditate with it, or carry it with you until the next Full Moon.
And so it is.
