Zodiac Influences on New Moon Rituals

Aligning with the Stars

Now, let's add some zodiac flair! Each new moon is cozied up with a zodiac sign, influencing its energy, along with the entire chart of that moment. And, each zodiac sign is linked to a planetary ruler, and depending on whether you follow modern or traditional astrology, some signs may be associated with more than one planet.

When interpreting a chart, it's essential to consider the planetary ruler of the rising sign, among other significant influences. For those needing a refresher, I offer a quick astrology guide for seekers.

When crafting your New Moon rituals you can also incorporate and pay tribute to the New Moon's planetary ruler, and increase the energy and focus of your ritual.

Step 1: Design Your Sacred Space

First things first, let's set the stage! Creating a sacred space is like building your own little oasis of peace and magic. Think candles, comfy cushions, and, of course, your chosen crystals. It's your personal retreat for cosmic connection.

  • Choose a comfortable and quiet space.
  • Remove any distractions around you.
  • Light a candle, set a bowl of water out, or maybe burn some incense.
  • Grab your favorite journal and pen.
  • Bright lighting or dark environment for you? Think about your whole ambiance and the vibes you wish to be in.

Now let's get ready with the crystal selection.

Step 2: Choose and Cleanse Your Crystals

To choose a crystal for a new moon ritual, you can follow one of the methods below, or pick your crystal allies as a heart-led journey. Let your intuition guide you on this decision.

Choosing your new moon crystals, hold them in your hand for rituals

3 Methods to Choosing Crystals for New Moon Rituals

#1 — Pick a crystal from the list above based on your goals for the next 30 days, or whatever you wish to bring about in your life at this time.

#2 – Align with the new moon's zodiac sign theme and opportunities that resonate with you, and pick crystals that are aligned with that theme. Match the two.

For example, for a New Moon in Taurus = building stability, and perhaps you're focused on $, then I would pick Green Aventurine (Green is a Venus color, fyi).

#3 – Examine the ruling planet of the current new moon phase (reference the planetary ruler table above) and incorporate its correspondences into your ritual. For instance, during a Venus-ruled new moon (Taurus or Libra), perfect for love and relationships, consider integrating natural stones and crystals resonant with Venus.

Beyond rose quartz, you might also include green-hued stones like jade and emerald to enhance the connection.

Got your crystals? Great! Next, let's cleanse and reset.

Next Cleanse Your Crystals

And remember, cleanliness is next to god(dess)-liness – even for crystals!

Cleanse them with smoke, moonlight, or whatever feels right, to clear the slate for your intentions. Just be sure to use the correct method so you don't damage the crystal (some are not water safe!). 

Step 3: Set New Moon Intentions with a Personal Touch

Here's where I bring in a bit of my ritual magic. I love writing down my intentions and placing them under my chosen crystals. It's like sending a cosmic text message to the universe!

And for an extra oomph, I sometimes scribble sigils on candles, surrounding them with crystals, weaving in crystal energy into my manifestation rituals.

Infuse your rituals with your unique essence – they're a reflection of you, not me.

Grab your journal to capture your intentions, new moon affirmations, and the symbols that resonate with you, be it colors, natural elements, or melodies. Use this personal language to shape your ritual, weaving in elements like acorns, seeds, talismans, oils, feathers, and more. Tip: Now is the time to tackle self-limiting beliefs and journal through those blocks.

Short on time? No stress! I've prepared 3 new moon rituals for love, manifestation, and healing, just for you.

You're invited! Let's continue the conversation…
