The Libra New Moon on October 6, 2021, activates a lineup of planets in the sign of Libra, creating an increased awareness around creating balance in our own lives.
Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto are also very active at this time too, which will color and shape our experience of this fresh lunar cycle.
We may find ourselves feeling passionate and fearless when it comes to creating more balance in our lives, but also connecting with the energy of abundance and finding ways to feel at peace with how we are choosing to give and receive.

As always, feel free to adjust the ritual to suit your needs.
Please note that the guided meditation used in this ritual was first released in October 2020, so please double-check that you don’t already own it before purchasing.
Your Libra New Moon Ritual
This ritual is best done between October 6- 13, 2021
You will need:
- Energy cleansing tool of choice (Eg. dried herb sticks, incense, bells, etc.)
- I am Aligned Cosmic Meditation
- 10 leaves (bay leaves work too or you can just use paper)
1.) Collect all of your ritual ingredients and find a quiet and safe space where you can be comfortable. Light your candle.
2.) Start by cleansing your aura using your cleansing tool of choice. As you cleanse your aura, feel free to recite the following-
“I cleanse and let go of all that feels heavy on my soul. I am shedding, I am letting go of all that no longer needs to cling to me. I separate myself from my attachments, my judgments, and my inner voice of doubt, and settle into my truth, my soul, and my highest alignment.”
Next, cleanse your ritual space and ritual ingredients. Feel free to recite the following as you do so-
“I cleanse this space and these ingredients with light and loving energy. This space is now safe, protected, and aligned with the energies of love. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
3.) Get nice and comfortable, and start your “I am Aligned Cosmic Meditation”. This 12-minute meditation will help get you in alignment for the rest of the ritual work.
4.) After your meditation, take your leaves and holding half in one hand and half in the other hand, recite the following or feel free to say what you feel in the moment-
“Thank you Mother Earth for providing me with these blank slates to write my wishes, to set my intentions, and to give back to the world.”
5.) On your first 5 leaves, write down what you wish to call into your life or what you wish to receive. Depending on the size of your leaves, it may be easiest to just stick with a few keywords for each leaf.
On your next 5 leaves, write down what you wish to give back to the world or what you wish to offer back to your life and those that you love. Again, depending on the size of your leaves you may just want to stick to a few keywords for each leaf.
6.) Reflect on what you have written for a moment – was it easier for you to come up with ways to give or receive? Take note of where you may have struggled or what feelings and emotions have come up for you. Then, jumble all of your leaves together.
7.) Go outside under the dark night sky and offer your leaves back to nature. You can choose to bury your leaves in the soil or in a plant pot, or you can offer them to the ocean or the wind or do a combination. Just do whatever is easiest for you.
8.) After you have released your leaves back to Mother Earth, take a moment to feel your connection with nature all around you. And if you like, say a simple prayer in front of your candle. Here is a guide-
“Thank you, Mother Earth for all you provide and the bounty that you offer us every single day. Thank you for the stars at night, the trees in the summer wind, and the gentle roar of the ocean. Thank you for your sunsets and sunrises, and for all you continue to offer. I am grateful for you, I am grateful for……. Thank you. Thank you.”
9.) Go back inside and spend some time in quiet reflection, or do something more active such as dancing, painting, or yoga.
Snuff out your candle and your ritual is complete.
Libra New Moon blessings to you!
