3-Minute New Moon Ritual
Ground your body, clear your mind…
Become aware of your body. Notice how gravity holds and connects you to earth. It’s as though your body is an ancient stone temple—solid, strong, secure. Sanctify this temple. Imagine a priestess is pouring sacred water and scattering rose petals, all the way down, from your head to your toes. Any anxiety or negativity washes away. Notice the thoughts and feelings leaving the temple—your judgments, your distracted mind, your worried heart. Be sure to honor them. Give each a smile and a piece of cake as it departs.
Draw a circle of protection, call in blessings…
Visualize a ring of fragrant flowers surrounding you, protecting you. Know that you are safe and relaxed. Breathe deeply. Feel the power of the Sun and Moon pouring into your circle. The energy of Sagittarius is gathering in your circle. It is expansive, optimistic, and visionary. It is spontaneous, honest, and carefree. Sagittarius has the strong thighs of a runner or a mountain climber, the dedicated mind of a scholar or a priest. And it has the heart of a voyager, always seeking, always dreaming, of new horizons, new solutions. Absorb its energy as you read the Sagittarius affirmations.
- My opportunities are limitless.
- I seek the higher meaning in any situation.
- I am a student, philosopher and adventurer.
- I love a new perspective.
- Ever the optimist, I adjust when I need to.
- I am open-minded with foreign people,
places and concepts.
- I seek the truth. I speak the truth.
- My eyes always look to brighter futures.
Allow seed intentions to form…
Your intentions for this cycle are gathering. You may already know what you wish to accomplish. Or you may not. Trust that all will unfold perfectly in time. Know that this brief ritual has aligned you with spirit. Now ask your heart if it has a closing message for you. This may come in words or as a picture, perhaps as a body sensation or sound. Give yourself time to receive this message. Digest it. Write it down. Then, in gratitude to yourself and spirit, return to normal awareness. Place a symbol of your Sagittarius New Moon message on your altar.
