Symbolic of new beginnings, it’s time to set your intentions with this powerful new moon ritual from Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro of Crystal Muse. Read on to find out how…
“The new moon symbolises new beginnings and a fresh start, making it the ideal time to make wishes, set new intentions and plant new seeds,” explain Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro, authors of Crystal Muse. “Watch them bloom and grow throughout the remainder of the moon’s cycle.”
“This New Moon Wishes Ritual allows you to honour the energy of Mother Moon while making wishes on the night of her new cycle. Creating a regular practice of setting new moon intentions is a mindful way to commit to your dreams and goals. It will also allow you to stay in touch with her divine feminine energy. The power of writing down your intentions cannot be understated.”
New Moon Wishes Ritual
1 Sage your environment and cleanse your crystals using your preferred method.
2 Hold the crystals in your hands, close your eyes and take three deep breaths. Aloud or in your head, say the following: “I ask that the highest vibration of love and light connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy and any previous programming. I command these crystals to hold the intention of my infinite potential. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
3 Consult a lunar calendar to find out the timing of the next new moon.
4 On the new moon, grab your New Moon Wishes Sheet (which can be downloaded HERE), a silver pen, blue pen and your crystals. Find a comfortable environment outside where you can sit.
5 With your silver pen, go over the outline of the circle and the four moons on your sheet.
6 With your blue pen, write up to 10 wishes inside the circle. Start with: “Dear [whatever fits with your belief, such as angels, source or spirit].” Then list your wishes. It’s very important to write your wishes within 24 hours of the specific time that the new moon starts.
Optional: Decorate your New Moon Wishes Sheet in whatever way you’d like. You can add colours or drawings inside or outside the circle, but your words must remain within the circle.
7 Add your signature and date at the bottom of the sheet as indicated.
8 Say “thank you” aloud three times to emphasise that what you’re asking for already exists in the universe.
9 Fold your New Moon Wishes Sheet in half once and then in half again a second time.
10 Place your wishes in an area where they can remain undisturbed for 28 days, or the entire moon cycle.
11 Place your Phantom Quartz point in the centre on top of your folded New Moon Wishes Sheet. With the points facing outward, place the four Lemurian Seed crystals around the Phantom Quartz at the four cardinal directions − north, south, east, and west.
12 Take your Clear Quartz point and draw an invisible line starting with the Phantom Quartz and moving to all four Lemurian Seed crystals until you have energetically connected them all. Think of it as ‘connecting the dots’, like when you were a kid.
13 Leave your New Moon Wishes grid undisturbed for 28 days. At the end of the 28 days, on the night before the next new moon, remove your crystals and open your sheet. Reflect on your wishes, seeing which ones have manifested and which ones still need time to seed. Transfer those to your next month’s new moon wishes.
14 Cleanse your crystals, and repeat this ritual as often as you’d like to be in alignment with the moon cycle, always remembering to start at the new moon.
