The new moon is a time for starting new ventures, new beginnings

Solitary New Moon Ritual

New Moon workings can be done from the day of the new moon to three-and-a-half days after. The new moon is for starting new ventures, new beginnings. Also love and romance, health or job hunting. The New Moon is as powerful in its own way as th e Full Moon. It is a time for taking stock. It is a phase of hibernation, retreat, and contemplation. Avoid crowds and gatherings and seek a little time for yourself. Rest is crucial during the New Moon. Simple foods and quiet times are powerful healers. Many women menstruate with the New Moon. It is natural to want to curl up in bed with a good book and nice cup of chamomile tea. Stronger nervines (relaxing herbs) are skullcap, hops, catnip, oatstraw, and valerian.


After the New Moon ends and that first crescent appears, then the healing lunar cycle begins all over again. Most acute diseases do not last a full lunar cycle. The information in this article is only intended to be an educational tool, not a prescription. It is always wise to consult with your health care provider when experiencing any illness or discomfort. Awareness of the rhythms of nature can assist you and your health care provider in determining the best course of treatment at any given time. Naturally, some conditions will require that you apply therapies that don't necessarily "fit" with the phase of the Moon.


Spells, Rituals, etc. should be performed between dawn and sunset for the best use of this magick.


Solitary New Moon Ritual:


Items needed:


cedar or sage smudging wand

white candle

bell

athame


Cast the circle:


Use the smudging wand to purify the space as you move around the circle.


Invocation to the Goddess:


Ring bell with your arms in the Goddess position (arms in a V above your head). Say these, or similar, words:


Great Hecate

Queen of the Underworld

Protectress of all Wicca

It is my will on this night of the new moon

to overcome my shadows

and bring about change

I invite you to my circle to assist and protect me in my rite.


Invocation to the God:


Hold your athame with your hands in the God position (crossed over your chest) Say these, or similar, words:


Great Anubis,

God of Protection

It is my will on this night of the new moon

to overcome my shadows

to bring about change

I invite you to my circle

to assist me and protect me in my rite.


Statement of intent:


Say these, or similar, words:


Dark is the night as I reach this turning point

Here is a time of death, yet a time of rebirth.

Endings and beginnings

Ebbings and flowings

A journey done and a journey yet to start.

As the wheel turns, I see birth, death and rebirth

and I know that every end is a beginning.


Meditation:

Remember a time in your life when you were miserable, depressed and felt like you couldn't go on. Let the painful memories overtake you, feeling yourself weaken and become frightened. Put yourself back in that pain-filled time in your life. As you meditate on that time, sink down the floor and curl up in an embryonic position. You are completely obsessed by pain and depression. The shadows around you lengthen and darkness spreads.


Then arise!


Light your white candle and hold it high overhead. Say these, or similar, words:


In darkness, there is light!

I feel energy and life returning to me!

I feel my heartbeat strong

I feel the power of the universe and the power of the Goddess and

God within me.


Pass the candle over your body, tuning in completely with the light, feeling its power heal and protect you. Allow its rays to completely penetrate your being, healing and cleansing you. As you are doing this, chant


Let the light cast out all darkness


Cakes and Ale or The Simple Feast


Thank the God and Goddess for their presence


Close the circle.
