New Moon Spell
Merry Meet :)) The New Moon is coming up shortly and it’s one of my absolute favorite nights as it is my belief that the magick we work on the night of the New Moon will set the pace for the entire Lunar Cycle. Today I am going to share with you what I typically do on the night of the New Moon to reflect upon the past lunar cycle and prepare for the new cycle.
You Will Need:
– 3 pieces of paper
– 3 white candles
– optional way to burn paper that’s safe
Tonight is a night of reflection on the previous lunar cycle and planning for the new lunar cycle. To aid me with this I write three lists on the night of the New Moon.
List 1 : The Previous Lunar Cycle Celebrations – The first list is of things that were wonderful and I am thankful for in this past cycle. Spend time thinking about this list and really reflecting upon all the wonderful gifts that you’ve been blessed with during this past lunar cycle. If you feel the desire to you can write your list in the form of a letter to the Goddess. I sometimes find that writing it in the form of a letter can open your memories and make it easier to access what’s happened to you during the month. After I finish the list I will thank the Goddess and the energy of the universe for all the gifts that I have received. I light a white candle as I am doing this. This list you can either burn as you give thanks to the Goddess or you can tuck it away in a journal or some place else of your choosing for safe keeping. You may even want to setup a monthly gratitude journal book to reflect upon in the future or a New Moon book for this exercise.
List 2: Previous Lunar Cycle Challenges – The second list that I write contains the things that I may not have done so well with this past cycle or challenges that I found difficult throughout the cycle. I acknowledge my part in what may have happened and look for what I may have been meant to learn by the challenges I was presented with. I forgive myself for anything that I may feel responsible for or have energy for that I need to release and ask the Goddess and the universe to help me improve upon these things in the next cycle. Once I am done with this I burn this list releasing any negative energy, fears, or attachments to any of the items to the universe. At this time I also ask the Archangel Michael to help me find and cut any cords that I may need to at this time. Cords are basically psychic energy attachment to people that are no longer for your greater good. I then surround myself with white light renewing the energy around me. I then light my second white candle symbolic of the cleansed and new energy surrounding me.
List 3: New Moon New Beginnings – From here I move onto my third list. I will take 5 to 10 minutes to meditate upon what I would like for the next lunar cycle. With this I include energy, goals, desires, hopes, dreams, etc. I try to envision how I want the next cycle to feel. I then write my third list. In this list I detail what it is I want to accomplish and ask the Goddess for her help. I light the third candle when i am done. This list I keep on my altar tucked in a box until the next new moon. At that time I’ll take it out and review it and use it the next month to see how I did.
I then take a few moments to just be in the magic of the night and with the Goddess and then thank her and the universe for their time and blow out the candles. Most times I will work specific rhymes with this month, but I take this as a creative and personal night. A sort of checking in with the universe if you will. I like it to be not as formal and more personal. You can modify this any way you like and make it so it suits your personal practice.
I hope you have a Blessed New Moon
Much Love and Many Blessings,
