The Scorpio New Moon on November 18th, is all about transformation and rebirth. It is all about shedding our skin and stepping into the new.
We have all been on a journey of new beginnings this year, and the Scorpio New Moon will act like a culmination or “birthing” point of this energy.
After a year of trials, challenges and growing pains, we are now ready to access deeper levels of our soul and step into a new potential.
By peeling back the layers and uncovering a new layer, we can not only transform our lives but we can also gain a deeper understanding of who we really are and what journey or lessons our soul has come here to share.
In order to harness this potent rebirth energy and to blossom into your fullest potential, here is a ritual idea that will help you to feel reborn and renewed.
Scorpio New Moon Salt Scrub Ritual 2017
This ritual is best done between November 18th -30th
You will need:
- Glass/Plastic jar or container (preferably with a lid)
- Sea Salt/Himalayan Salt
- Olive Oil/Almond Oil/Jojoba Oil (whatever oil you have to put on your skin)
- Your favorite essential oils
- Your favorite crystal
- Sage for smudging
- Pen and Paper
1.) Before you begin any ritual it is important that your space and aura are cleansed. Using sage or your favoirte smudging tool, cleanse your aura and then your entire space. Be sure to also cleanse the ingredients that you are using for your salt scrub. Use the following affirmation or write your own –
“I cleanse and release any energy that is not mine to hold. I replace this energy with love, light and healing. I heal my mind, my body and my surroundings. I recharge the energy that surrounds me now so only love and light will remain.”
2.) Now it’s time to make the salt scrub. Get your container, add about 2 tablespoons of salt and a drizzle of oil. You want the salt to be oily to the touch, but not swimming in the oil.
3.) Next, add 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oils and then mix it around till it’s combined. If you want to get really luxurious you can also add dried flowers and herbs if you have them on hand. Close the lid and place your crystal on top of the container.
4.) Now, take your pen and paper. Take a few minutes to still your mind and then write down what you would like to release and bring in to your life starting with ‘Thank You Universe’. For example-
“Thank You Universe for helping me to release……….As I release this I welcome in…….”
Fold up the paper and place it under the container or under the crystal. Leave it to charge with your crystal and salt scrub over night.
5.) In the morning, or whenever you usually shower, take your salt scrub and begin rubbing it all over your body. Start with the tops of your feet and work your way up- skip your face, as the salt may be too harsh. Also please note, the oil make make the shower floor slippery- be careful!
As you rub and exfoliate away the dead skin cells and rebirth yourself, repeat the following mantra or write your own-
“I am now cleansing away and releasing (insert what you wrote on your piece of paper earlier). I am now shedding this layer of myself so I can be reborn. As I scrub I am healing my mind, body and soul and welcoming in (insert what you wrote on your piece of paper earlier). As I scrub, all that blocks me from receiving what I want melts away and I feel aligned, recharged and energized. I am reborn, and I am whole. I am reborn and I am whole. I am reborn and I am whole.”
6.) Once you have scrubbed your body, rinse off the salt but avoid soaping your body. Allow the beautiful oils and healing salt energy to infuse into your skin. When you get out of the shower, just pat dry your skin with your towel.
Because this salt scrub is charged up, I really recommend only using it once, but if you really want to do a big release or cleanse, you can do this ritual 3 days in a row and use up any left over salt scrub.
If you have a salt scrub left over but you don’t want to do the ritual again, change up your ingredients (even if it’s just a little) and cleanse it with sage before using again. This will help to bring a new energy to it.
Happy Scorpio New Moon!
