December 14th, 2020, brings a Total Solar New Moon Eclipse in the sign of Sagittarius.
Total Solar Eclipses are powerful points of manifestation and creation. They open a portal to new and fresh energy and can kickstart our lives in a new direction.
Pay attention to any offerings the Universe brings your way around this time, as Eclipses are said to bring fated and destined events that push us further along our path.
Falling in the sign of Sagittarius, this Eclipse also brings the energy of abundance. Mercury is active on this Eclipse too, which heightens the need to speak our truth, and to be sure that what we are communicating is aligned with what we wish to manifest.
Using this ritual as your guide, you will set manifestations and clear an energetic pathway to help welcome the opportunity, abundance, and fresh energy that this Eclipse brings.
As this Eclipse leads us into the energies of the Solstice and Great Conjunction on December 21st, it can also be done at that time too.
Your Solar Eclipse Ritual December 2020
This ritual is best done anytime in December but especially on the 14-15th and 21st-22nd.
You will need:
- Cleansing tool of choice
- Cosmic Guided Meditation for December 2020 and headphones for listening
- 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 Guided Meditation for December using headphones.
9.) If you haven’t already, place your brew on the stove on a very slow flame. Take your pen and paper and use the following journal prompt- My vision for 2021 is….
Aim to write for at least 10-20 minutes. Once done, fold up your papers and place them in an envelope. Mark the envelope to be opened in June 2021 and December 2021.
10.) Leave your brew on a very gentle simmer for as long as you like. You can keep journaling, listen to relaxing music, paint, or do yoga. Allow yourself to enjoy the beautiful smells of your brew and to 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.
Note: if you feel drawn to, you can always dry out any herbs or cinnamon sticks you used and feel free to hang on to them or place them on your altar, as a representation of your intentions.
Your ritual is complete! Happy Solar Eclipse!
