The moon will become officially new at 12:15am eastern time in the sign of Aries on April 20.
This new moon is actually a solar eclipse and it is kickstarting a new cycle of eclipses.
This eclipse is also a hybrid eclipse - meaning some people will see it as annular where you can see a ring of fire around the Sun, and for others it will be a Total Eclipse, where the Sun is completely blocked.
In general, New moons are a time to tune in to your heart’s desires and set new intentions.
Right now is a time where the veil is thinner, which is common when we have an eclipse, making it easier for people to connecting into their psychic abilities or energies they don’t often feel.
You may receiving a lot of insights right now.
You may be feeling a strong desire to follow these insights.
Synchronicities are very strong right now, so pay attention to where you are being guided.
This is a time where fate is really strong - in the sense of things that are meant for you are unfolding with ease.
The energy with this new moon is fiery, uplifting - it is a time for action, to step into confidence, to find the courage, to move forward, to take a risk, to do something you’ve never done before.
This is a time for transition, change, instability.
You may feel like you are between two worlds - your old world where things are wrapping up and the new world/journey you are starting.
Allow yourself to go with the flow as you move through this.
Eclipse energy can be life changing - it is about bringing you to where you need to be on your path and aligning you to what your soul wants.
This is a time for endings or starting something new - the whole picture will become more clear after the eclipse.
One thing to note, this energy is not very gentle - this is a time where hard truths may be reveled to you.
You may find yourself looking at stuff that you have not wanted to look at, but it is now in your face and you can really welcome in any revelations and do something about it.
Know whatever is happening for you is helping you to create space for the new energy that is about to flow in.
Allow yourself to fully let go of the past.
Do your best to shy away from operating from extremes with this energy.
Try not to take on too much, over indulge, or burn yourself out - as you may be feeling very ambitious right now.
Give yourself space in your schedule to relax and allow things to just happen.
This is a time to get clearer about living your life from a truly authentic place.
Do your best to be gentle with yourself and others during this time.
Grab Palo Santo, sage, some clearing spray:
“I clear my aura - washing away all that no longer serves me. I disconnect my energy from any ties that are weighing me down and ask my energy to be fully returned to me. I ask more space to fill my being, allowing new beginnings to flow into my life. I am open to all that is meant for me. I am open to change. I am open to miracles. I invite spirit, my higher self and any other loving entities to join me for this ritual. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Let’s clear the room
“I ask all low vibe energy to clear from this space. I ask all energy that is not in my highest and greatest good to be cleared. I fill this space with caring, loving, supportive, healing, uplifting, high vibe energy. I invite in the divine feminine and the divine masculine to support with this ritual - thank you for your support. I am open, safe, and loved in this space. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
Grab a piece of paper - questions.
What is currently wrapping up in your life?
What new beginnings are you stepping into?
What truths are showing up for you?
In what ways do you need to show up every day (ie. things to do for your goals or to be your most authentic self)
What intentions are you setting with this new moon energy?
(meditate with me and receive reiki via the new moon ritual on YouTube!)
close your eyes - take a deep breath - allow your body to fully relax - with each breath sink more and more - imagine an open door where you look in you see everything from your past - see yourself closing that door with love and gratitude - as you close that door a new door appears before you open leading you down a new path that is filled with blessings - allow yourself to walk down this path and notice what you see
**end of meditation**
Bring your hands to prayer and bring them to your heart. Thank you past for getting me to where I am now. Thank you eclipse energy for the new beginnings unfolding in my life. Thank you for all of the guidance I received tonight. Thank you guides for assisting me and supporting me tonight. I welcome in newness. I welcome in continual guidance. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You can take one last deep breath if that feels good - maybe take a quick stretch and when you are ready, slowly open your eyes and take as much time as you need.
