On the 15th of February the new moon phase will come in Aquarius. In my moon phase rituals, the new moon is used as a time to set intentions and manifest a dream life. As the moon waxes our intentions grow with it. During a new moon eclipse the restart and reset mentality is amplified. Use this time to create the life that you dream of.
Each new and full moon is 'flavoured' by the zodiac sign that it falls in. Throughout the year you will find that all areas of your life are covered within each sign of the zodiac. You don't have to, but this can help you decide on some of your intentions if they relate to an area in your life that you need help with.
The new moon eclipse in Aquarius means a new start in the following areas for each sign;
Aries – your friendships are up for renewal
Taurus – new starts at work
Gemini – travel, study and adventure ahoy!
Cancer – a new start re sex and/or money
Leo – your love life is being triggered!
Virgo – it's all about changing up your daily routines
Libra – romance, creativity and kids are in focus
Scorpio – a new start for you with family
Sagittarius – it's not what you say, it's the way that you say it
Capricorn – a new start financially
Aquarius – your whole life is up for renewal!
Pisces – your spiritual life gets a boost
Here is a new moon ritual that I do and you can join in with, if not tonight then in the next 2-3 days while the new moon energy is still strong.
Start by cleansing, have a cleansing bath with salts and essential oils and while bathing, hold the intention that you are cleansing negative energy and beliefs. Smudge your home with a smudge stick or Paulo Santo or you can use a singing bowl to cleanse the energies around your home.
Any kind of manifestation ritual must always include gratitude and lots of it. The more gratitude you can express for the things you have, the more will come to you, this is the law of attraction. First, make a list of things you are grateful for, the things you want more of in your life. 10 things is a good number and we can all find 10 things that we are grateful for. When you have made your list, go through it one by one and as you read it say 'thank you, thank you, thank you' (3 is a magic number you know) and give a minute or so to really feel the gratitude. When we receive something and are truly grateful it manifests physically as happiness, smiling, high vibrations and a warmth in our heart. Recreate that feeling for everything on your list. And think about why you are grateful for them too, I am grateful for my wages so I can support my family and pay bills, I am grateful for my home because it keeps us safe and warm etc.
Now we get on to the good stuff, lets start making our intentions. Remember to make them just after the new moon eclipse, check what time the eclipse happens where you are, if you're in the UK it's 9:05pm on the 15th of February. It is up to you how many wishes you want to make, I am going to make 10. When writing your intentions, write as though they are already true and don't forget to include 'thank you'. Like this 'I am so grateful for my new home because I needed more space for my family and I love my new garden. Thank you'. Keep to this amount of detail, with every intention you need to include the gratitude and the reasons. When you have written your intentions, read them aloud and concentrate on the feeling of gratitude again, as though they have already come true, how would that make you feel?
Now we are going to take some time to meditate on our intentions. Get comfortable in a relaxing atmosphere, play some music, light some incense and candles. Remember that the more effort you put into your rituals, the better. Meditate for 10 minutes or longer and focus on what your dream life looks like, visualise all your intentions coming true, know that they will and know that you are supported by the universe.
To finish your ritual, put your intentions somewhere where you will be able to see them regularly, at least once a day. Say thank you to the universe once again and carry on with your life. I like to create a little altar for manifestation as a focal point. On it I put crystals, images of what I want to manifest, images or statues of deities that I feel connected to and elemental symbols- For fire; a candle, for earth; crystals, for air; feathers, for water; shells or something containing water (usually rain water or water charged by the moon). Then every day I take some time to refocus on my intentions, say thank you, feel the gratitude and light a candle or some incense.
I and the clients I have worked with have experienced fantastic results with manifesting in this way. But remember to put in your own effort, a job may not come to you if you don't apply, if you wish for a new car, you have to go out and look for one and so on. And also know that whatever come to you will be for the highest good for you and the the universe.
So happy new moon eclipse and enjoy your ritual!
Love & light,
