The moon will become officially new at 4:16am eastern time in the sign of Virgo on August 27.
The energy of this New Moon is a combination of impatience and opening up to new possibilities.
In general, New moons are a time for new beginnings.
Right now is a time to think of your daily habits and see what serves your energy.
Also check in to see how you are taking care of your emotional body and mental body.
This is also a good time to create better habits with your thoughts - allowing yourself to release negative thoughts and work on creating a more positive mindset.
The energy right now may feel a bit scattered and you may find yourself indecisive and distracted a bit more often than normal.
This is an opportunity for you to get clear on where you should be focusing your energy and avoid spreading yourself too thin.
Now is the time to cut ties with anything that is causing you to feel over burdened.
Cleaning your space and/or just reorganizing it can be very healing right now.
If you are feeling called to create structure, especially if it will help you with your goals, then set aside time to get clear on your game plan / new structure.
Make sure it is something that you are able to stick to - nothing that will be super stressful or feel like too much.
Be mindful of when you are experiencing overload whether it be information overload, pressure you are putting on yourself, or energy overload - if you can focus more on self care right now it will help reduce any feelings of overload.
One thing to note is there is a bit of irritability with this new moon so be patient with yourself and others - notice when you feel frustrated and see if you can take a deep breath and take a step back for a moment.
Virgo is an earth sign which brings with it grounded energy.
Allow yourself to sink into the fact that you are human and that you have a body.
This is a good time to focus on your wellbeing - your physical and emotional health.
Don’t worry about doing it all perfectly - just start with one small step that can make a big difference.
I feel overall there is a carefree energy - like a time to just let go a bit, play, and enjoy this time as we are moving into the next season - trusting everything is working out for you in the perfect timeline.
Set your intentions with this new moon to help you refocus on what you want to bring in.
Trust your inner guidance and what you feel called to.
Grab Palo Santo, sage, incense, or some clearing spray, etc.:
“I ask my aura to be cleansed of any dense energy. I ask my aura to be cleansed of any energy that is not mine. I invite my own energy that may be scattered to come back to me. I welcome in loving, protective, uplifting energy into my aura. I invite spirit, my higher self, and any other loving entities to guide me through this ritual and help me articulate my desires clearly. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”
Let’s clear the room
“I clear this space of all energy that is not in my highest and greatest good. I ask this space to be filled with pure love and nurturing energy. I ask this space to support me in this ritual. I am open, safe, supported, and loved in this space. I invite in my team, the new moon energy, and any other loving support for this ritual. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
NEW MOON RITUAL JOURNAL QUESTIONS!!
Grab a piece of paper - questions.
What’s on your to-do list? Check it to see if you’re spreading yourself too thin or focusing on things that aren’t helping you towards your ultimate goal.
Think of 2-3 things you tell yourself every day - check to see how those statements make you feel. If they are negative / make you feel bad - what is a new statement you can tell yourself that will help you feel powerful, confident, and uplifted?
What are 3 things you love about your physical body, 3 things you love about your emotional self and 3 things you love about your mindset?
How do you want to feel every day? What can you do to achieve this?
What intentions are you setting with this new moon?
If you'd like to receive Reiki Healing during your meditation then please check out my YouTube video for this new moon ritual:
Take a deep breath in - place your hands on your heart - feel your body - when your mind starts to wondering connect back in to your heart beat remembering you are alive in a human body in this moment
**end of meditation**
I invite you to bring your hands to your heart - “I honor my truth. I am connected to my body. I am grateful. I am capable. I welcome in miracles. I am love. I am. Thank you Moon. Thank you Universe. Thank you team. Thank you Reiki. Thank you.”
When you’re ready release your hands - take another deep breath - maybe take a quick stretch and start to slowly come back to the room.
