Capricorn New Moon Ritual January 2024

capricorn new moon ritual 2022

The Capricorn New Moon peaks on January 11th, kickstarting a new lunar cycle. As 2024 begins, this is our first wave of fresh energy on offer by the cosmos.

New Moons are always a good time to set intentions and to think about what you wish to manifest for the months to come. As it falls in the earth sign of Capricorn, this is a good New Moon to commit to long-term goals and to think about practical action steps you can take to turn your dreams into realities.

What would you like to commit to in 2024? It’s a powerful question and commit can be a heavy word, but this is the type of work that will be supported under the January New Moon.

Here is a ritual to guide you –

Capricorn New Moon Ritual

You will need:

  • Energy cleansing tool of choice (eg. bells, incense, herb sticks)
  • Energy Recharging Meditation
  • 1 Candle (preferably white)
  • 3 pennies or other small coins
  • 3 leaves (you can use garden leaves, bay leaves, or mint leaves)
  • 3 pieces of small paper
  • Pen or pencil

Directions:

1.) Begin by cleansing your aura and surroundings using your chosen cleansing tool.

As you cleanse your aura, recite the following, or feel free to write your own-

“I cleanse myself front and back, I cleanse myself front and back. I release the energy of the year gone by. I release the energy of the year gone by. I open myself to receive. I open myself to receive. Many blessings are now coming my way. Many blessings are now coming my way. I am one with myself. I am one with the Universe. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

As you cleanse your surroundings, recite the following, or feel free to write your own-

“I cleanse this space. I cleanse my home. I fill it with lots of love, joy, and happiness. My home is safe. My home is protected. My home is cleansed. Light fills the room. Light fills this space. Only love resides here.” 

2.) Set up your ritual by lighting the candle and placing the coins, paper, and leaves in front of it in rows. Keep your pen off to the side.

3.) Get nice and comfortable and begin your Energy Recharging Meditation.

4.) Once your meditation is complete, take your pen and write down what you would like to commit to doing regarding your career or day-to-day routine. Fold up the paper and place it on top of one of the leaves.

5.) Now, take your next piece of paper and write down what you wish to commit to regarding your relationships. Once you have written that down, fold up the paper and place it on top of the second leaf.

6.) With your third piece of paper, write down what you wish to commit to regarding your health, spiritual journey, or inner well-being. Fold this paper up and place it on top of the final leaf.

7.) Take the first leaf with the piece of paper of what you want to commit to in your career and place a coin on top. To give you a visual, you should have a little stack with your leaf at the bottom, the paper in the middle, and the coin resting on top. Fold the leaf over so it covers as much of the paper and coin as possible. Hold it in both your hands and recite the following-

“I am ready to commit to (insert here). As I make this commitment, the confidence, strength, and wisdom I need to follow through on it slowly filters into my being. I ask to remain open to the solutions, next steps, and actions needed to solidify this commitment in my life. I ask to be gentle with myself in the process.”

After reciting this, take a deep breath and exhale into the leaf bundle. Imagine you are charging up your leaf bundle with energy so what you have asked for can manifest in your life. Once done, place the bundle off to the side.

8.) Now, take your next leaf bundle. Repeat the same process by folding the leaf over as much as possible. Holding the bundle in your hands, repeat the following-

“I am ready to commit to (insert here). As I make this commitment, the confidence, strength, and wisdom I need to follow through on it slowly filters into my being. I ask to remain open to the solutions, next steps, and actions needed to solidify this commitment in my life. I ask to be gentle with myself in the process.”

After reciting this mantra, take a deep breath and exhale into the leaf bundle once again. Place it off to the side.

9.) Take the final leaf bundle and repeat the process-

“I am ready to commit to (insert here). As I make this commitment, the confidence, strength, and wisdom I need to follow through on it slowly filters into my being. I ask to remain open to the solutions, next steps, and actions needed to solidify this commitment in my life. I ask to be gentle with myself in the process.”

Blow into the leaf bundle once again and place it off to the side.

10.) Take three deep breaths here to still your mind and to re-center yourself. Place your hands together in prayer position and give thanks for all the blessings you received this year and to the Universe for hearing and granting your requests. Once done, snuff out the candle.

11.) Take your leaf bundles and bury them in the earth. Try to do this within 48 hours of completing the above steps.

Happy first New Moon of 2024!
