The Gemini New Moon brings a lot of energy and is the start of a lunar cycle that will lead us into Eclipse Season.
Under the dark night of the Moon, we are guided to honor our powers of creativity. It is under the dark night sky that we can tune in to the magic of transformation, of intuition, and of the sacred feminine.
In this ritual you will be guided to create a cleansing tonic made of Dark Moon water, oils, and flowers. Here’s how-
Dark Moon Water Ritual
This ritual is best done from May 20- 30, 2020
You will need:
- Smudging tool of choice
- Bowl of filtered water
- Mortar and Pestle (optional)
- Flowers/Herbs (dried or fresh)
- Essential oil of your choosing
- Empty Spray Bottle or glass jar
- 7 Ray Guided Meditation
- Journal and pen
1.) Begin by smudging your aura and then follow with your ritual ingredients and surroundings. As you cleanse your aura recite the following-
“I cleanse my aura with the power of love and light that dwells inside me. I cleanse my aura of all that keeps me from accessing my true self. I release and let it all go. I release and let it all go. I am whole now. I am complete. I am me. And so it shall be.”
As you cleanse your surroundings/ritual ingredients, feel free to recite the following-
“I cleanse this space with the power of love and light. I cleanse these ritual ingredients on this night. May this space, may these offerings of nature guide and bless me as I work through this ritual. Bless this water. Bless these flowers. Bless these oils. Bless these tools. Bless this space. I am blessed. I am blessed. I am blessed.”
2.) Take your bowl and fill it with about a 1 cup of filtered water. Swirl the water with your finger, just to infuse it with your energy.
3.) Using your mortar and pestle, grind the flowers just to release their scent and natural oils. You can also just do this with your hands if you don’t have a mortar or pestle. As you grind the flowers, recite the following-
“Thank you mother earth for this gift, thank you flowers and herbs for lending your healing energy. May you release all that is healing and nourishing for my soul. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”
Take the flowers you are using and sprinkle it into the bowl of water.
4.) Then add 1-3 drops of your favorite essential oil, if you don’t have essential oil you can also use olive oil or another vegetable based oil.
Swirl the water with your finger again, as you swirl recite the following or feel free to say what you feel in the moment-
“Dear Universe/God/Angels, please open me to my highest truth on this night. Please allow me to see what is truly in my heart; please give me the strength to find my way through the dark. Please comfort and support me as I make my journey. Please take my heavy burdens, for I no longer wish to carry them. I tune into my creative potential and ask for (insert here). Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”
5.) Leave the bowl of water out overnight by a window. Feel free to leave some crystals nearby to help enhance the charge of the water.
6.) Then do the 7 Ray Guided Meditation. Following this meditation you can also work with the following journal prompt –
“I want the rest of the year to be…”
7.) In the morning, take your water and transfer it from the bowl into your spray bottle. You can discard any of the larger flowers that won’t fit in the bottle.
Now take your Moon Water Spray and begin spritzing your aura or room. Do this everyday, as much as you like, until your Moon Water is finished.
If you don’t have a spray bottle you can keep your moon water in a glass jar and use it to wash your body/diffuse in a humidifier/ sprinkle around your room or aura.
As you spritz or sprinkle feel free to recite a mantra or state an intention. Here are some examples-
“I am ready to receive the blessings of this Moon Water”
“May this Moon water guide me to feel the love that I am”
“May this Moon Water bring me the clarity I seek.”
Notice how you feel when you use the spray, see if you can tune into its magic. Happy New Moon!
