One of the moon’s many phases, where the moon and sun align, in astrological terms is known as the New Moon. In addition, the New Moon marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle. Each New Moon brings with it an array of opportunities to plant the seeds of new beginnings. Therefore, this specific day is an ideal time for introspection, self-reflection, course correction and goal-setting.
New Moon in Scorpio, 15th November, 2020
Today’s New Moon in transformational Scorpio encourages us to move out of our comfort zone and address issues that are recurring. We can move to the next stage of growth by viewing these issues with a fresh perspective. Moreover, today is a powerful day to set your intentions and manifestations since this is the first New Moon out of Mercury and Mars Retrograde.
Furthermore, allow yourself to observe and dissect what behaviors have kept you from achieving your goals. As it is an ideal time to dive deep into your darkest emotional truths, unlock your true potential and give birth to new creative ideas and projects. Channel your energy into breaking negative mindsets and debut a new sense of self.
Here is a list of things to do as part of your New Moon Rituals:
- Relax and Reflect
Run a bath with bath salts, essential oils, dried herbs and petals. Soak for 20-30 minutes and visualise all the energy picked up from the day leaving your body.
- Clear your space with Palo Santo, Incense or Sage
It is essential to cleanse your crystals, work space, living room or sacred space with your favorite cleansing tool. This ensures any negative energy that the room or your body might have picked up in the day is cleared.
- Set worthwhile intentions
Every month, the moon delivers us an extra boost of intention-setting energy. Focus on intentions you are passionate about. Set intentions that are clear and specific so they can inform the universe of your aspirations and allow you to focus on them.
- Light a candle
Lighting a candle signifies our desire to bring light into our lives which fills our home with warmth and love. Next, charge your candle with an intention. Hold the candle, express gratitude and love, and ask the universe for what it is you want. Allow it to burn out on its own. You can choose a candle specific to your intentions from our range of Ritual Candles.
- Begin something new
Start a new passion project, write a new song, join a class, apply for that job. Now is the perfect moment to begin anew.
- Make a list
Sit down in a comfortable position, keep your crystals near, write, and declare your desires and fears. This is the perfect time to visualise your manifestations and bring them to life.
- Make your own New Moon Rituals
Creating your own New Moon Rituals simply involve committing to a set of practices that bring you joy and help you focus towards your goals. It could be anything from taking a yoga class, creating a crystal grid to setting time aside every day to meditate.
