So we’ve talked about the New Moon and how to make New Moon wishes, right?
Okay, well we are going to shift it up a bit for this New Moon as this one is special! This is the New Moon in Aries. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is a very boisterous, fiery, sign, and is associated with Spring and the glorious up-rush of energy and flowers starting to pop up and look toward the sun. This is one of the most potent times of the year to think about what YOU want to manifest and create, and more importantly how you want to FEEL.
It’s also a glorious time to upgrade your dreams, wishes and goals as holy hannah honey there is a lot of energy to harness for them. This New Moon happens on Monday, March 27th at 10:57 EST, so if you live in London or Sydney (or in those vicinities) it will happen on March 28th.
So if you were a computer and needed an upgrade – what would you pick to upgrade or update? Is it where you live, your eating habits, your beliefs, your mindset, your exercise regime, relationships? What would you pick?
Remember the Einstein quote “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.”
In other words it is time to change it up a tad. It doesn’t have to be huge, but if your dreams and goals are feeling a bit weary, unloved and you’re not paying attention to them. Then perhaps it is time to upgrade them or release them and start with a clean slate and bring some new, creative mojo into your being.
So first let’s make this really easy and comfie to harness this energy and work with it.
Take a moment and pause. If you know how to cleanse your space and your being with smudge, most certainly do it. If you can’t burn where you are a great cleanse is to dissolve some sea salt in warm water and flick it around your home, your body and your space.
Sweet, you are now cleansed. Grab 3 scraps of paper and a pencil. (Have you got them?)
If you have a candle, light it for this process, the recommendation is 3 candles, but I have to say I think that is overkill. If you can’t light a candle or ignite something, no problem – light an LED tealight or just imagine there is a candle lit for you.
On the first piece of paper write something you want to RELEASE (I know we don’t normally do this until the Full Moon). However, write something down that isn’t bringing you the joy, the fulfillment or meeting your needs or the needs of others, or that you have simply outgrown.
On the second piece of paper write how you want to FEEL. Now this is not to be paragraphs long. A simple sentence, one word or something along those lines, as we can distract ourselves with a plethora of words and it dilutes things. Do you want to feel Joyful, Healthier, Connected, Inspired, Creative, Love – how do you want to FEEL. Why feeling you ask? Because it is incredibly important. If you want to attract a healthy relationship, but you are beating yourself up or feeling less than from your past one, you might want to chose a different feeling state and dive into it with a fantabulous divebomb!
Last, but not least, what is one thing that you would truly LOVE, I mean wiggly labrador body love, ecstatically happy love, to MANIFEST for you and yours this year. Write that sucker down!
Now the fun part (I’m a closet pyromaniac), take your RELEASE paper and go somewhere safe and as you ignite it offer up the intention of blessing and releasing it out to the ethers, not to come knocking on your door again.
Now take your FEEL piece of paper, hold it between your hands and bring them up to prayer pose and FEEL it, feel that Love, that connection, that Joy, whatever it is you picked. Let it melt through your body and light up your face with a big arsed grin. Now set the intention of that feeling and burn the paper.
Last but not least, with that feeling state still whooshing through your body and tingling your nerve ends, grab your MANIFEST paper. Got it? See in your mind’s eye so frigging clearly the thing, situation, state you want to manifest – don’t gloss over this. See it! Yes? Now set the intention super clearly that this is coming to you and then burn your paper.
Now as I mentioned earlier, if you are in a place where you can’t burn then shred each piece of paper with the same intentions as if you were burning them. Shred them as much as possible and then if your lou allows – flush em, or pop them in the garbage (no this is not a time to recycle).
Well done you! You have just tapped into the glorious Aries New Moon energy and it took a whole 15 minutes max. Remember to hold onto that feeling state and daily bring into your mind your Manifest picture. This is a gorgeous fiery, fresh start energy so do please make the most of it. Set your intentions, plant your seeds and do some upgrading.
