When the last new moon of the year is upon us, it is a beautiful time for Yule New Moon Magic, to release it all and send it back to the Earth. Now is the right time to get rid of it and clean yourself up from whatever you have gone through, cried over, held onto, got angry about or just held onto to obstacles that aren’t serving you. Make space for the New Year, set yourself up and start creating the future you desire with this Wiccan ritual.
New Moon Magic Ritual
There is no rush, just take your time. Start by having a shower or bath with all your favorite products. It’s essential to feel good about yourself and be spotless when you go to your altar. Dress comfortable, wear your favorite perfume or cologne, makeup or jewelry.
Set the mood with your favorite music that makes you happy. Keep the volume on a level that you can still hear yourself breathe and be able to concentrate. Light incense or smudge the area and clean up your altar workspace.
You will need in this order:
- A bowl of water, or melted snow if you have it available.
- 1 candle with your actual favorite color, or a white one.
- A bowl of soil, sand, leaves, or rocks. Quantity should be enough to sink your hands inside.
Place these elements in front of you in a row, you will begin with water and end with earth. Take your time, go slow, and pay attention to your emotions. Lit the candle and surround yourself with your favorite color light. Sit with your hands in an open prayer position
1. Start washing your hands in the water and as you do this, start chanting
“I’m washing my hands clean of ……….
Insert all your problems one after another from the past year. Keep doing this until you feel you can move on.
2. Place your hands above the candle so you could feel the heat without burning them. Start rubbing them together in a cleaning motion, saying
“I’m burning away ………
Insert the same problems what you said in the water bowl. Keep doing this until your hands are thoroughly dry and you can feel them warming up. Blow out the candle.
3. Open your hands and look at them. Start using your breath and blow onto your hands. Between each breath say
“I’m blowing away……
Repeat as many times as you like. There is no right or wrong amount of time.
Put your hands into the bowl of soil and truly envision how each of your troubles is pulled out of you and taken away. As you do this, you will say
“I’m giving back to the earth so this …….may stay dead and buried away.
Repeat your words from above. Keep doing this until you feel you can move on.
Once you are done, take the water and the candle and add it to the second bowl. Find a fast-moving stream of water, crossroad, or a graveyard and get rid of the contents. If you leave it at a cemetery, give an offering on the way out.
I wish you a beautiful and peaceful New Moon Magic. Let yourself be free of your past and start creating your future.
