The Virgo New Moon arrives on September 14, 2023, making it the last New Moon before the Equinox and the last New Moon before Eclipse Season begins. This auspicious timing makes this New Moon our foundation point for the coming months. We can use its energy to think about our goals, intentions, and what we wish to cultivate as we make our way to the finish line of 2023.
The cosmic skies around the Virgo New Moon are quite busy, with six planets in retrograde and all of the outer planets active. All of this energy combined may have us feeling a little unsettled in our being.
This ritual is designed to bring soothing to any unsettling while allowing you to work with the incredible manifestation energies on offer. You should leave this ritual feeling more grounded, recharged, and restored.
I hope you enjoy it!
Virgo New Moon Tea Ritual 2023
You will need:
- Aura Cleansing tool of choice
- Lotus Compassion Meditation
- Ingredients to make your own herbal tea (e.g. mint leaves, lemon slices, ginger slices, honey, etc.)
- Mug with hot water (for brewing your tea)
- Pen and paper
1.) Start by using your aura cleansing tool of choice. As you cleanse around your body, feel free to recite the following –
“I love myself just a little more each day. I work to release and let go of my stresses and anxieties a little more each day. Today, 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. My energy is protected and clear. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
Next, use your aura cleansing tool to clear your surroundings and your tea ingredients. As you do this, 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.) Gather all of your tea ingredients, including your mug of hot water. Take one of your ingredients and hold it in your hands. Program your ingredient with an intention that is geared to supporting your well-being. It can be anything that will bring more peace, serenity, and joy into your life. You can state your intention aloud or simply deliver it to the ingredient telepathically. Be sure to thank your ingredient for holding your intention before placing it into the mug of hot water.
Repeat this process for all remaining tea ingredients. You can change your affirmation or work with the same one.
3.) Cover your tea as you allow it to brew. While you wait for your tea to brew, do the Lotus Compassion meditation. This meditation is a perfect accompaniment to the energies of the New Moon and supports compassion, healing, and welcoming change.
4.) After your meditation, take a few sips of your tea. Feel yourself recharge and restore on each sip. As you drink your tea, choose one of the following journal prompts. Aim to write for about 15-20 minutes.
- For the next four months, I wish to cultivate…
- My focus moving forward is…
- My vision for the remainder of 2023 is…
- I can create more ease by…
5.) Once your journaling is complete, reflect on any insights that have come up for you. Once your tea is finished, your ritual is complete! If you don’t want to finish your tea, you can pour the water outside instead. If possible, return all your tea ingredients back to Mother Nature by burying them in the Earth or compost.
New Moon blessings to you!
