In this blog post, I will empower you with five simple but incredibly effective new moon rituals that you can easily perform to boost your abundance and manifest more opportunities for yourself.

What’s the New Moon Rituals?
Rituals are ceremonial sequences of actions that define and describe human cultures. Unique practices exist within communities, such as meditation in Buddhism or baptism in Christianity. Native American and Indigenous tribes perform unique practices, such as smudging with sage or other herbs for spiritual cleansing and purification, or performing sweat lodge ceremonies for physical and spiritual healing. Rituals can also be regular activities, such as morning coffee, done without much thought.
New Moon rituals have been practiced for centuries as a way for people to connect with themselves and the natural cycles of the moon. During the new moon phase, which represents new beginnings and fresh starts, we have the opportunity to set our intentions for the upcoming lunar cycle.
New Moon rituals can take many forms, from simple meditations to elaborate ceremonies, but they all serve the purpose of anchoring an intention and making it feel more tangible. By engaging in the practice of ritual, we can deepen our connection to ourselves and the universe. This creates space for new possibilities, opportunities, and projects to arise.
Performing a ritual during the New Moon phase is like planting a seed in our consciousness, which sprouts and grows as the moon waxes. It's symbolic of sending a signal to the Universe to let it know what we want to manifest in our lives. By doing so, we align ourselves with the energy of abundance and attract more opportunities into our lives.
Setting Intentions during the New Moon
First and foremost, it's important to understand that the new moon marks the start of a new lunar cycle and holds the energetic power of new beginnings. This is the perfect time to set your intentions, which will help to direct your focus and energy for the upcoming weeks. Setting intentions during the new moon can be an effective way to manifest your desires and achieve your goals.
To get started, take some time to reflect on what you want to create in your life. Consider your long-term aspirations as well as your short-term goals. Think about areas where you would like to see growth or change, and visualize what it would look like to achieve these things. Once you have a clear idea of what you want, write down your intentions in a journal or on a piece of paper. Be specific and detailed, and use positive language to describe what you want to bring into your life.
It's also important to cultivate a sense of gratitude and appreciation before you set your intentions. Take stock of where you are currently in your life and identify things that you are thankful for. This can help you shift your focus away from what you lack and towards a mindset of building upon the abundance that already exists in your life. By cultivating a positive mindset, you can create a fertile ground for your intentions to take root and grow.
Perform a Ritual to Crystalize Your Intention
Performing a ritual is a powerful way to crystalize your intention and bring it into reality. Choose a ritual that resonates with you and use it to anchor your intention in your mind and heart. You can setting an atmosphere by simply clearing the space with smudging, prepare a cup of tea, lighting a candle, or as elaborate as creating an altar with crystals, candles, and other meaningful objects. The key is to infuse your intention with emotion and energy, and to hold it in your awareness as you move through your day-to-day life.
There are a plethora of different methods to perform a ritual, but in this blog post, I will expound upon five simple yet incredibly effective rituals that can be carried out during the new moon phase.
Whether you're an experienced practitioner or just starting out on your ritual journey, these simple new moon rituals will definitely leave you feeling energized, renewed, and deeply in tune with yourself and the new moon's energy.
1. Create a Vision Board
A vision board is a powerful tool for manifesting your desires. Simply gather pictures, words, and phrases that represent the abundance you want to attract and place them on a board. Place your vision board in a prominent place where you will see it often. Alternatively, you can create a virtual vision board using platforms such as Pinterest or Canva. You can then set it as a wallpaper on your phone or computer screen.
2. Write a Manifestation List
Write down a list of things you want to manifest in your life. When you're finished, read your list aloud during the new moon. If you can make it sound like a chant, even better. This is a powerful way to crystalize your intentions and bring them into reality.
It is important to be specific and use positive language when writing your list. For example, instead of writing "I don't want to be lonely," write "I want to attract positive and supportive relationships into my life." Often, when I make a list, I surprise myself with the desires that surface, which I was not previously aware of.
Meditation is a powerful way to connect with the energy of the new moon. Find a quiet place where you can sit comfortably and focus on your breath. Visualize the abundance you want to attract and feel it flowing into your life. If you are not used to meditating, I recommend meditating along with guided meditation. My psychic medium friend, Willow, recommended an app called Insight Timer, which offers a plethora of guided meditation options.
4. Conduct Tarot or Oracle Reading
Conduct a tarot or oracle reading to gain insight and clarity on what steps to take for manifesting abundance in your life. Choose a deck that resonates with you and ask questions related to your desires and intentions. Write down any insights or messages you receive during the reading and use them to guide your actions during the new moon cycle. You can also use a New Moon tarot spread to read cards. I often use a spread for my personal readings. I pull the cards based on the spread and then read the corresponding interpretation in the guidebook. This way, I can avoid any bias in my interpretation.
5. Create a Tea Blend, Memory Oil, Bath Salt with New Moon Essence
Creating a tea blend, memory oil, or bath salt with new moon essence is a wonderful way to capture the essence and incorporate the energy of the new moon into your daily life. To create a personalized aromatherapy experience, select herbs, essential oils, or salts that align with your intentions. Add a few drops or pinches to your oil or bath, and use dry herbs to create a tea blend.
Each zodiac sign corresponds with certain intentions and herbs, essential oils, or salts that can align with the New Moon. Here are some examples:
Note: The corresponding herbs listed above are a general guide. It is important to choose herbs, essential oils, or salts that personally resonate with you.
