The moon will become officially new at 11:55am eastern time in the sign of Taurus on May 19.
In general, New moons are a time for new beginnings.
During the time of this New Moon, there are 5 planets in Taurus, emphasizing this being a time to slow down, go inward and to be quiet.
Allow your nervous system to relax and stabilize with this softer, warm, embracing energy.
You may find you have more stability over your emotions right now.
This is a time to welcome in patience - trusting everything is happening in perfect timing.
Really allow yourself to move slowly as there is healing/forward momentum that can come from relaxation.
On that note though, avoid getting ‘stuck’ or ‘too comfortable’ - if there is something you want to do that feels a little uncomfortable, now is the time to push through.
With this new moon, you may find yourself naturally connecting into or becoming more aware of your gifts and talents.
You may be finding clarity within yourself.
If you want to connect more deeply within yourself, you can do so by working with your solar plexus chakra.
One way of doing this is to meditate and focus your attention on your solar plexus chakra - imaging yellow light radiating above your belly button.
There is a sense of renewed energy with this new moon, so you may feel motivated, creative, and fertile energies being enhanced.
On the other hand, you may find yourself having moments of feeling insecurity, lack of self-worth, and self-doubt.
Know it is part of the energy happening right now and still take steps to push through these feelings.
With this new moon, this is really a time to pause and enjoy life - enjoying each moment - making an effort to do small simple things that bring you joy.
If you are feeling tension within your body, use movement to get it out - whatever way you like to move ie. walking, dancing, exercising, yoga, etc.
This is truly a time to manifest and create a new vision for your life.
Make the time to center and ground your body - finding balance within.
Grab Palo Santo, sage, some clearing spray:
"I ask all unwanted energy to clear from my aura. I ask anyone else energy to clear from my aura, leaving only my energy. I invite deeply loving, comforting, high vibe, energetic, creative energy to fill my aura. I allow myself to flow with the changes in my life. I am trusting of the universe. I am ready for miracles. I invite spirit, my higher self and any other loving entities to join me for this ritual. I am tuned in. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
Let’s clear the room
"I clear this space of all low vibe energy, other’s energy, and anything that isn’t serving this space. I fill this space with supportive, enthusiastic, warm and caring 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 does slowing down, pausing and relaxing look like for you?
What are small things you can do each day that will bring you joy?
What do you feel are your natural gifts and talents?
What insecurities / self-doubts have been popping up and write examples that prove each of them wrong?
What is the new vision you have for your life and how can the new moon energy help support you?
(meditate with me and receive reiki via the new moon ritual on YouTube! - uploaded shortly)
close your eyes - take a deep breath and gently place one hand above your belly and one hand over your heart - take a moment to feel your body - feeling your stomach rise as you’re taking a breath in - becoming aware of your heart beat - with each breath allow yourself to connect in more deeply with both of these spaces - allow yourself to really connect in with your most authentic self - imagine a yellow ball of light under your hand at your stomach and a green ball underneath your hand at your heart - every time you take a deep breath in and out imagine both of these spheres expanding - imagine them expanding them where they are completely surrounding you - expanding out into the room taking up all the space in the room - expanding out beyond your house your home onto your street - expanding through your city - expanding through the state, country - and expanding around the whole entire world - whenever your mind starts to wonder come back to this green and yellow sphere that are under neath your hand at your heart and solar plexus.
**end of meditation**
I invite you to take a moment - feeling your heart beat - feeling your hand raise up and down as you take a deep breath - allow yourself to become more aware of your body in this moment - I deepen my trust in the universe - I deepen my trust within me - I am walking into this new vision that I have created for my life - thank you universe reiki new moon and everyone who came to support me tonight thank you me for making the time.
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.
