Cancer New Moon Ritual: Invoke the Ancestors

Author: simone  //  Category: Cancer New Moon, Family Gua

Ancestor Blessing Ritual

The June 27 Cancer New Moon (1:08 a.m. PDT) is an important time to gather family around you–both living and departed. And, tapping into other realms is especially easy now because the New Moon is trine mystical Neptune. The ancestors have much to share with us, such as their love (witness this 1913 photo of my grandparents just before they married), courage and dedication.

You will need: Pictures of one or more ancestors (not necessarily blood relations) to whom you feel a strong connection and whose help you are requesting, a green candle, an offering of food or drink, table settings.

You may wish to cook a special meal for your ancestors (Dad’s favorite dish or Mom’s signature dessert). Or, keep it simple by pouring Dad’s chosen brand of beer or Mom’s favorite soda pop. Set places at the table for yourself and the ancestors, preferably in your Family gua. Don’t let this ritual spook you; the ancestors want to help us, and are only waiting to be asked. Feeding them is an ancient form of reverence and honor. You may also wish to play music that reminds you of them during the meal.

Light the green candle, and call forth your ancestors by name. Say, “At this New Moon, I honor you and the special place you hold in my heart. I offer you this nourishment and send blessings from this side of the veil.” Now, ask them for specific aid. Was Dad a strong, take-charge character? Ask him to give you strength, so you can conquer a challenge you are facing. Was Mom an especially nurturing or insightful person? Request her aid with mending relations between you and a family member.

Serve the food or drink, as if the ancestors were physically present with you. Consume your portion slowly, feeling love and appreciation for your relations. Listen closely for any words of wisdom they might whisper in your ear. When the meal is complete, thank them for their help. You may take their portion of the food to someone who is hungry, leave it outside for animals to consume, or pour the liquids onto your plants to nourish them. Blow out the candle, and affirm that your problem is solved.

 

Gemini New Moon Ritual: Embrace Your Truth

The May 28 New Moon in Gemini (11:40 a.m. PDT) brings a powerful opportunity to clear your mind and harness the power of your intuition.

For this ritual, you will need: A blue candle, notebook and pen.

Light the candle in your Knowledge gua (to the left of the front door as you enter). Thank your spiritual guides for being present.

Take your notebook and write at the top of the page: “Embracing My Truth.” Then, ask yourself: Is there anything I’m doing or thinking that is not in alignment with my higher truth? It may relate to your job, marriage, health habits or communication with a friend. Make notes on this for a few minutes. Be honest with yourself. If something isn’t working, admit that you just can’t do it that way anymore. You don’t need to take any action at this time. Just be with the awareness. Then, give thanks to your guides for helping you with this issue and blow out the candle.

Listen to your thoughts and feelings throughout the month. If you are angry or frustrated, acknowledge your feelings without forcing yourself to do anything about them. Continue writing in your journal. You may be surprised at the ideas and solutions that occur to you! If you feel guided to do so, make appropriate changes. You are likely to receive further information on your issue around the June 12 Full Moon.

 

Taurus New Moon Ritual: Grow Your Wealth

Author: simone  //  Category: Taurus New Moon, Wealth Gua

The April 28 Taurus New Moon eclipse (11:14 p.m. PDT) is a grand opportunity to allow more wealth into your life. Wealth is not just money, of course–it’s also well being, at which Taurus excels. But if you’re in need of some green stuff in your life, try this ritual at the New Moon, and see what blessings unfold for you in the following two weeks.

Grow Your Abundance

You will need: a green or flowering plant, a small piece of amethyst, a hundred dollar bill (or whatever denomination you have access to).

Find a place to sit in your Wealth gua (far left corner of your home), with the plant beside you. Put the piece of amethyst on top of the bill, take a deep breath, and exhale slowly onto the crystal. Visualize money flowing into your hands.

Then say the following words:

Cash and crystal, on you I blow
My blessings and hopes, a seed to sow.

Bring money to me – let it flow
Like abundant rain, then make it grow.

Give thanks, then bury the crystal in the plant and leave it in your Wealth gua (or put it in the yard outside that gua). Water and care for it well. Put the hundred dollar bill in your wallet, and carry it around for two weeks. Break it at the Full Moon, gratefully affirming your wealth.

Aries New Moon Ritual: Pump Up Your Life Force

Author: simone  //  Category: Aries New Moon, Career Gua

The March 30 Aries New Moon (11:45 a.m. PDT) is a powerhouse time to set new career intentions or reinvigorate your existing goals. Dynamic Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter link up with the Sun and Moon, bringing a burst of energy that’ll help you move forward.

Now it’s time to work the Career gua inside and outside your front door. For best results, be sure to sweep, clean and energize this area at the New Moon.

This Astro Feng Shui ritual will help light a fire under you by pumping up your life force.

You will need: A red candle, a goblet of water, a pen and paper.

Position your candle at a comfortable and safe spot in your Career gua. Set the goblet of water nearby. Light the candle and focus on the flame to center yourself. Take some deep breaths and consider your immediate goals for your career. Imagine an inner Sun in your solar plexus, with a fire burning in the center of it. On the inhale, fan that fire and drop into it any negative thoughts, emotions, or images that are standing in your way from experiencing a healthy career or from moving forward. On the exhale, transform all that’s been incinerated into light that radiates out of every pore.

Continue this breathing pattern until your thoughts and feelings have been neutralized. (If you know the Breath of Fire, which involves taking rapid breaths into your belly through your nose, you can include it). When you feel complete, bring your awareness to your heart and feel appreciation.

Dip your fingers into the goblet, and flick a little water onto your solar plexus area, to affirm your cleansing and renewal. Then, write down what you wish to achieve within the next 30-day time frame. Keep it realistic; if you shoot too high and your subconscious mind rebels, you may set yourself up for disappointment (i.e. “I now win $100 million in the lottery.”)

Here are a few realistic examples: “I now welcome 10 new paying clients who are greatly benefited by the services I offer.” Or, “I now find the energy and resolve to create a terrific website.” Speak the words aloud and give thanks that it is done. Fold the paper and slip it under or near the candle (remember to blow it out later).
