There are many rituals when it comes to the moon. She is an attraction point to us humans. The moon influences the oceans, running waters was and is guidance. I guess it will continue and carry on from our ancestors and culture to future generations. My culture was and still is in some parts fond of Bendis the Goddess of the moon. Artemis is her Greek equivalent as well as Selene, that’s where the Selenite name comes from.
So how can we get in touch and reconnect with the moon? Easy… You don’t have to have any past connections… Start simple by checking out the lunar phases… You can use apps for that depending on what hemisphere you are located. Living in Australia, I am naturally using the Southern hemisphere lunar calendar. These apps are great because they are easy to use, access and everything is visible on one screen.
Simply look up moon Phase apps, or lunar apps. I use Daily moon phases, or moon shase app on Android. The new moon in on the 17th September!
Now that this is sorted, I will share with you my New Moon ritual… Don’t think it’s complicated, once you do it I am sure you will love it!
A few days before the New Moon, you should think about some goals, set some intentions. For example, you could try to clean up, organize a room, sort out your make up, or even bigger goals like getting the dream job you always wanted, buy the car, you were thinking about… ANYTHING really!
Once you set your intentions, sage your space, your apartment, house, office…. Take a bath, listen to some meditation music. If you have crystals, cleanse them with sage or selenite. And last make Moon water! Yes, moon water. Now that’s not only easy to make but fun!
In a jar place water, set it in the window or outside, and place crystals around the jar and on top of the jar. Moon water is any water that has absorbs the energy of the moon. Please don’t use plastic, glass is best. The new moon represent always a fresh start. Fill your mind with positive vibes and kind words. You are now ready to set your intentions. So your intentions for the moon water could be love. The moon has feminine energy, that’s why all the moon divinities are goddesses, like Diana(Roman), Artemis(Greek), Bendis(Romania), Chandra (India), Mani ( Vikings), Coyolxauhqui -means golden bells (Aztec ), etc…

Back to the moon water... What can I actually do with it!!!??? Well, quite a bit! I use mine for my plants. A drop here and there makes wonders for them! I also simply drink it or add it to my tea! Since we are over 60% made out of the water and the moon influences the water, tides, it can influence us, so why not take advantage of the energy of the moon?
If you want me to write a specific post only on moon water, please let me know…There is way more to talk about…
And the last part of the New Moon ritual is to show Gratitude! Yes, simply gratitude, give back, say thank you, count your blessings, and be positive!
