The new moon is a great time to do manifestation magick. What follows is a new moon ritual that can be done by most anyone. Though there are certainly pagan tones to the ritual, the open minded will find that it’s easy enough to change certain words to make it work for their own tradition.
Table or altar in the center where the circle will be cast.
On the table is:
- A vessel to burn paper in. This can be a cauldron or anything else that will safely hold burning incense and paper.
- A green and red candle
- Some Ylang/Ylang incense. If not available it may be omitted.
- A bowl of kosher or sea salt.
- A lighter/matches.
- Paper and pen.
- Sage or Frankincense
At each directional point is a purple candle and a tool to light it with. (Matches, lighter, etc.) as well as a candle snuffer.
Note: White candles may be used as a substitute for any other color candle, though the ritual is designed to be most effective with the color candles mentioned.
Take the time to make sure the space where the ritual is to be performed is appropriately cleaned and is going to be safe.
Using Frankincense or Sage, clear the ritual area. As it is cleared say
YOU: Allow the white light of love and divine protection to clear and purify this space to make it sacred. Allow no outside negative influences to interfere. Allow only good to come into this space.
Carry kosher or sea sat clockwise around the circle and sprinkle it on the ground. You should complete three circles. As you do so, visualize first a flame around the circle, second a bubble encapsulating the circle, and third a white light coming down into the circle.
Facing east, light the candle. As the candle is light say:
YOU: Hail to the element of Air. I bid you welcome to my sacred circle. May you help in clarity of thought and then carry those thoughts into the world.
Turn South. Light the candle. As the candle is light say:
YOU: Hail to the element of Fire. I bid you welcome to my sacred circle. May your flame purify my thoughts so they work to create only good in my life.
Turn West. Light the candle. As the candle is light say:
YOU: Hail to the element of water. I bid you welcome to my sacred circle. May your presence add energy to the other directions where additional energy and nourishment is needed.
Turn North. Light the candle. As the candle is light say:
YOU: Hail to the element of earth. I bid you welcome to my sacred circle. May you purify and stabilize my emotions so they are solid in the work I do.
You should now move to the center of the circle and light the Red and Green Candles on the altar.
Now, look above.
YOU: To the Sky energy above that is known by many names. I ask that you be present to watch over and lend power to my work here.
Look down toward earth or reach down and touch the earth.
YOU: To Mother Earth who allows me to walk upon her soil and who supports every aspect of this life. I ask you to join forces with the Sky to watch over and lend power to my work here.
Turn focus back to the center.
YOU: May the Divine join me in this circle and bless this sacred work I do.
Allow a brief few moments of silence for the integration of energy. Then say.
YOU: Tonight, the night of the new moon, I gather in this circle to ask the blessing of the Divine to be upon me and the work I do.
YOU: This is a time of manifestation and creation. As such, I’m going to write upon paper three things I desire to manifest in the name of good, love, and harm to none. First: Something I desire for someone else. Second: Something I desire for the world. Third: Something I desire for myself.
Complete the task of writing these things down on paper.
After you’ve finished light the ylang/ylang incense and walk clockwise around the table with it before dropping it into the burning vessel. Return to center.
Approach the table and light the paper from the green candle then pass it through the flame of the red candle. You will then drop it into the burning vessel. As it burns and the smoke releases the intentions to be birthed into the world, chant and clap or simply say and repeat – “OM – So It Be.” Do this until the paper has burned out.
Once this task is finished take a few more moments in silence to allow for reflection on what has just occurred. You may want to do an appropriate meditation at this time as well. When finished say:
YOU: I am now ready to close this circle.
Close your eyes. Visualize in the circle a brilliant light shining all around. Gather this light and places it in the burning vessel. Take a deep breath in and exhale out sharply as you shoot the light and any remaining intentions within the burning vessel out and into the universe.
YOU: Now, before I return to my daily life, I give thanks to the Divine who make all things possible. Blessings to you oh Divine Energy. I bid you farewell for now but look forward to your return.
Face North. Snuff out the candle.
YOU: Blessings to you element of earth – who grounded and stabilized me. I bid you farewell for now but look forward to your return.
Face West. Snuff out the candle.
YOU: Blessings to you element of water – who lent your nourishment throughout this circle. I bid you farewell for now but look forward to your return.
Face South. Snuff out the candle.
YOU: Blessings to you element of fire – who purified my thoughts. I bid you farewell for now but look forward to your return.
Face East. Snuff out the candle.
YOU: Blessings to you element of air – who gave form and carried my thoughts for me into the real world. I bid you farewell for now but look forward to your return.
Walking counter clockwise around the circle, use your fingers to cut the circle. This is done three times. Once finished say:
YOU: It is complete. I go in peace, love, and joy knowing my intentions have been heard.
