The Aquarius New Moon on January 21, holds the energy of new beginnings. It falls at 1 degree of Aquarius, plus it also brings the start of the lunar new year.
All of this fresh new energy will feel welcomed after the last few months. We will feel the cobwebs of the past washed away and refreshed and ready to begin a new chapter. Greater clarity is likely to arrive under this New Moon too, helping to guide us forward.
With all this strong new beginning energy flowing in under this New Moon, we can use it to set intentions and plant seeds for the month to come. While the magnetic potential of this New Moon will be high for drawing things to us, taking a gentle and open-ended approach will likely work best.
There is a ritual to guide you below. You can also get your full forecast for the Aquarius New Moon 2023 here.
Aquarius New Moon Ritual 2023
You will need:
- Aura cleansing tool of choice (eg. dried herb sticks, essential oil sprays, etc.)
- 3 sticks (found in the garden, or you can also use palo santo)
- Piece of string
- 3 strips of paper
- Cosmic Oracle Reading 2023
1.) Begin by cleansing your aura, followed by your ritual ingredients and surroundings. As you cleanse your personal aura, feel free to recite the following-
“I release and remove all that weighs heavy on my being. I release and remove all energy that is no longer mine to carry. My energy is now restored. From top to toe, my energy is cleansed. From inside and outside, my energy radiates pure and true. I am cleansed. I am balanced. I radiate harmony.”
As you cleanse your ritual ingredients and space, feel free to recite the following-
“I cleanse my space with light and loving energy. All that is no longer aligned with my highest good, all that is stagnant and unclean, may now be lifted from this space. My space is cleansed. My space is restored. My space is aligned with the highest vibrations for me.”
2.) Light your candle and place it down in front of you. Sit down with your sticks, pen, and paper handy. Place your hand on your heart and just take a moment to pause. Breathe here for a moment and thank yourself for all you have moved through. With your hand on your heart, finish this sentence to yourself- “I am so proud of you for…”
3.) Then, take your first strip of paper, and write down three words you would like to feel when you wake up each morning. Then, take your strip of paper and wrap it around the first stick.
4.) Take your second strip of paper and write down three words you would like to feel before you go to bed each night. Then, take your strip of paper and wrap it around the second stick.
5.) Take your final strip of paper and write down what you want to manifest or call into your life in the next 6 months. Then, take your strip of paper and wrap it around the third stick.
6.) Take your three sticks and tie them into a bundle using the string so the papers are secure. Hold the bundle in your hands, and take 10 deep restorative breaths. Then, recite the following –
“I offer my intentions to the earth, the sun, the moon, and the stars. I remain open to the many blessings that are now coming my way. I remain open to the feeling spaces I wish to create. I remain open to the guidance the Universe has for me when it comes to manifesting my goals and dreams. I am one with the Universe. All doors open for me now. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
7.) Place your sticks next to your candle and do your Cosmic Oracle Reading for 2023. Meditate on the messages that come up for you.
8.) Place your bundle of sticks on your altar or a safe place for three nights, then bury them in the earth. If you cannot do this, it is fine to remove your papers and just leave the sticks outside. If you used palo santo, you can burn the sticks over the next 6 months. Snuff your candle out when the ritual is completed.
Happy New Moon!
