The Libra New Moon on September 25, carries some soft energies, helping us to integrate into all the energy shifts that the month has brought our way so far.
As this is the New Moon following the Equinox, it also holds extra potential for setting intentions for the future.
In this ritual, you will be guided to connect with nature and create some intentions. You will also be guided on a meditation that aims to bring you into alignment.
I hope you enjoy the ritual!
Libra New Moon Ritual 2022
This ritual is best done anytime between September 24-October 5, 2022
You will need:
- Aura cleansing tool of choice
- I am Aligned Cosmic Meditation
- 3 Bay leaves (or any leaves will do)
- Marker for writing on leaves
1.) Collect all of your ritual ingredients and find a quiet and safe space where you can be comfortable. Light your candle and if you like, turn on some soothing music.
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 prevents me from feeling balanced and aligned. I am letting go of all that no longer needs to be with me. I separate myself from any attachments or judgments. I release 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 my highest good. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
3.) Get nice and comfortable, and do the 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 three leaves and holding them in your 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.) Take your pen and the first leaf, and write on it an intention or something you desire for yourself.
On the second leaf, write down something you desire when it comes to your relationships or a particular relationship in your life. (Try to keep this self-centered rather than making your intention dependent on the actions of others.)
On your third leaf, write a blessing for the planet or for a loved one.
6.) Take your three leaves and go outside under the New Moon 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. Just do whatever is easiest for you.
7.) 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 before heading back inside. 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 offer. I am grateful for you, I am grateful for (insert here) Thank you. Thank you.”
8.) Go back inside and spend some time in quiet reflection. You can pull a Tarot or Oracle card for yourself or do something more active such as dancing, painting, or yoga.
Snuff out your candle to complete your ritual.
Happy New Moon!
