The Sagittarius New Moon is the last New Moon of 2023. Falling on December 12, this New Moon holds beautiful healing energy that can support our intentions for the rest of the year and bring greater peace into our hearts.
You can get your full forecast here, but if you want to work deeper with this energy, here is a ritual to guide you-
Sagittarius New Moon Ritual 2023
You will need:
- Aura cleansing tool of choice
- Cosmic Healing Meditation
- Candle and matches/lighter
- A minimum of three of the following: citrus slices, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, rosemary, thyme, sage, mint, flower petals (dried or fresh), cloves, star anise, cardamom pods, vanilla beans, ginger, chamomile buds, lavender buds, eucalyptus leaves, sea salt, peppercorns, or essential oils.
- Pen and paper
Note: in this ritual, we are creating a sacred brew that we will gently heat and simmer on the stove. The brew is not for consumption.
1.) Have all your ingredients in front of you. Don’t put anything in your saucepan just yet, and don’t combine/mix your items. Just have everything laid out individually on a board or plate so it can be easily reached. Have your water in a glass/jug.
2.) Start by cleansing your aura and your surroundings. You may also wish to cleanse your kitchen area and ritual ingredients.
As you cleanse your aura, feel free to recite the following-
“I cleanse and release the past, and all that weighs heavy on my soul. I let go of all the baggage I have collected this year and in years past, and I ask for it to be released and returned to the Earth. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I am now cleansed; I am now at peace. I am now connected and rooted to Source. I am light and love, and I am a powerful being of divinity. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
As you cleanse your ingredients/space, please feel free to recite the following-
“I lift the energy of this space, creating room to bring in more love, joy, and gratitude. This space is surrounded with love and light. These ingredients are blessed with love and light. My space is cleansed; my space is filled with abundant, peaceful energy. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
3.) Sit in front of your ingredients, and as you light your candle, recite this prayer/affirmation-
“I honor the rich wisdom of my ancestors and my past. I honor the wisdom of this land and these ingredients that sit before me now. I honor where I stand today. The time has come to call in the new and to focus on new creations. May each of these blessed ingredients in front of me now hold space for my intentions and wishes. In deep gratitude, I thank you.”
4.) Take your first ingredient and hold it in your hands. Program it with an intention by reciting what you wish to call in or create in your life out loud. Imagine your intention infusing into that item. When done, place your item into the saucepan and repeat with all other items you are using.
5.) Take your glass of water and holding it in both hands recite an affirmation, vision, or prayer for the entire planet. What is your wish for this planet and its future?
6.) Once done, pour the water into the saucepan. Make sure all your ingredients are covered with water but be careful not to overfill your pan.
7.) You have two options for your next step. You can place your uncovered saucepan on the stove on a very gentle, slow flame while you do your meditation. Or, if you prefer not to leave your saucepan unattended while you meditate, simply place it next to you as you meditate rather than on the stove.
8.) Do your Cosmic Healing Meditation, allowing the aromas of your brew to become a memory for the work you are doing through this meditation.
9.) If you haven’t already, place your brew on the stove on a very slow flame. Take your pen and paper and write down three intentions for the remaining three weeks of 2023.
Make your intentions loving and supportive for whatever you have going on at this time of year.
10.) Leave your brew on a very gentle simmer for as long as you like. You can journal, listen to relaxing music, paint, or do yoga. Allow yourself to enjoy the beautiful smells of your brew and let it infuse its magic into your soul, your house, and the planet.
Once the water begins to evaporate down, take it off the stove. Wait for it to cool, thank your ingredients, and then discard it all, preferably outside if you can.
Happy New Moon!
