Tonight is a New Moon. The Mead Moon, Honey Moon, Strawberry Moon or Lover's Moon.
The Moon is the most important heavenly body to witches. We draw on her power for lunar magic. We cast our spells in accord with her cycles. She inspires and illuminates us.
New Moons are for wishes,an energetic doorway to pull in what you'd like.
A New Moon is a symbolic point of attention, and a symbolic portal for new beginnings.
New Moons are a great time to set intentions for things you’d like to create, develop, cultivate, make manifest. There are many ways to initiate this communion with the Universe from lighting a candle to elaborate rituals. What matters is that you’re committing yourself to your vision.
New Moons are a blank page on which to speak your dreams out loud.
In the chaotic and temporal world, looking to something larger that is also part of yourself can fill you with awe and make you feel connected. For whatever path you’re on, opening to working with planetary energies links you to the power of the divine.
Writing intentions on a 7-day candle and leaving it in a prominent (and safe) place or
creating a New Moon collage gives you a visual reminder.
New Moons are special, as a time to enfold into your real self, the timeless one.
Focus on your New Moon wishes.
Make a list of what you'd like to draw into your life and dream Big!
The New Moon is a moment to conjure what seems out of reach, and creating the vision is the first step to making it a reality.
Take a piece of paper and draw a circle in the middle. Now outside the circle, in any pattern write down all the negative things that weigh heavy on you. Take your time as you do this and do it in a quiet spot where you will not be disturbed. Once you have finished, inside the circle write down all the positive things that you want in your life. It can be from happiness to forgiveness or wishing someone good health. You can write down as many of these things as you wish.
Once you have finished, burn the paper, as it burns the smoke will send and carry your burdens and dreams away.
Plant your intentions into the night.
Set your vision upon the stars.
The muse moves my hand in new directions.
I own my magic, the light and shadow.
Whisper a new dream into the darkness!
