Virgo Herbal Wellness Ritual
This ritual can be done anytime, but is best done from August 27- September 4, 2022
You will need:
- Cleansing tool of choice
- Lotus Compassion Meditation
- 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 slices, chamomile buds, lavender buds, tea leaves, sea salt, peppercorns, or any essential oils.
- Large Saucepan filled with water
- Pen and paper
1.) Have everything laid out individually on a board or plate so it can be easily reached. Then, begin cleansing your aura and your ritual ingredients.
As you cleanse your aura, feel free to recite the following-
“I support my body by cleansing and releasing all that blocks me, all that triggers me, all that keeps me in fear. I feel light, I feel open. I know I am love. I know I am Source. I honor the Source energy within. I feel connected to all that there is and all that there ever will be. My energy is protected and clear. My aura radiates strong, pure, and aligned. 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 by 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.”
2.) Take your first ingredient and place it in your hands. Then bring your hands to prayer position, holding them to your heart or forehead. With eyes closed, program your ingredient with an intention that is geared to supporting your wellbeing. It can be anything that will bring more peace, serenity, and joy into your life. You can state your intention out loud or simply deliver it to the ingredient telepathically. Be sure to thank your ingredient for holding your intention.
3.) Once you have programmed the intention, place your ingredient into the saucepan of water. Repeat this for any remaining ingredients.
4.) Take your saucepan and put it next to you as you do your Lotus Compassion Meditation.
5.) Once your meditation is complete, take your pan and place it on a very low simmer on the stove. As your pan is simmering, choose one of these journal prompts-
- I can treat my body as a temple by…
- If nothing were holding me back, I would…
- I can invite more passion into my life by…
- I can bring more peace into my life by…
Aim to write for at least 10-20 minutes. Leave your brew on a 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.
6.) 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, 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.
Virgo New Moon Blessings!
