New Moon in Aries
The sign of Aries bring energy, initiation, courage and drive! With this new moon under the sign of Aries, we can tap into this energy and use it to kick start any area of our life that feels stagnant, lacks confidence or needs a restart.
Pick an area of your life that needs an instigating fire under it to get going. Where have you given up your power? Or where are you lacking confidence? Perhaps you have one or more projects you want to get started on, or a new routine that will motivate and empower you, or maybe you want to take initiative on your health. These are all great ideas to take charge of your life and get going under the Aries New Moon.
items for your ritual
a taper candle (red if you can find it)
paper + pen
a small Citrine, Pyrite or Tigers Eye crystal (or Clear Quartz)
3 cloves (good luck + prosperity) and a cinnamon stick (associated with fire + the Sun)
a small bag
An Amulet Ritual to Take Charge of Your Life
In this New Moon in Aries ritual, we will set intention for a specific area of your life, as well as create an amulet you will carry with you for the coming weeks to keep your intention alive!
Set up your SACRED SPACE by placing anything around you (or on your altar) that represents fire, expansion, growth and drive. For example, extra candles, plants + flowers, crystals such as Tigers Eyes, Citrine, Pyrite, Red Garnet, as well as your items for this ritual
CLEANSE + PURIFY the air and yourself by burning herbs, incense or lighting beeswax candles
GROUND YOURSELF by taking deep, slow breaths. Breathe into your solar plexus + connect to your inner fire and drive
Ask yourself, where in your life are you feeling stagnant? Where are you lacking drive, confidence or empowerment? You can simply meditate upon this, or journal until you find clarity. Breathe your solar plexus fire into that area of your life that needs an extra “kick”
Once you feel very clear about your intention, write it down on your piece of paper. Be CLEAR + SPECIFIC. If you’re working with a taper candle, carve your intention right into your candle
Hold your piece of paper, your candle, your herbs + crystal at your solar plexus. Close your eyes + VISUALIZE your intention growing, expanding and coming to fruition!
Place your written intention under your candle, and your herbs and crystal scattered around the base of the candle.
LIGHT YOUR CANDLE and continue to feel your intention growing and building. Aries energy likes to be physical, so if it feels right, MOVE YOUR BODY! You can put on a song and dance, do some Sun Salutations, shake your body out, whatever works for you. This not only gets the energy moving in your body, but it helps to build + grow the intention you're sending out.
Before closing your ritual, always send massive GRATITUDE + BLESSINGS to our Earth who continues to support and nurture us through her ever changing cycles + rhythms, and through all the seasons of our life.
Let your candle burn all the way down, or you can re-light every time you come back into meditation surrounding this intention.
Once your candle has burned down, take your written intention, your crystal + your herbs (and any remaining wax), and place them inside your pouch or bag- this is your amulet! Keep your amulet somewhere where you can see and hold it daily. This may mean you can put it in your wallet, your coat pocket, beside you at your desk etc. Let it serve as a constant reminder of the intention you’ve set to take charge of your life and get your energy flowing!
