The Leo Black Super New Moon on July 31st/August 1st will be helping us to integrate the awakenings and illuminations brought our way by the recent Eclipses.
Under the dark night of the Black Moon, we are going to be guided to travel within, so we can get comfortable with whatever the Eclipses have brought our way.
If we are open, we may also begin to see the beauty and possibilities emerging from whatever changes have unfolded.
This ritual has been designed to help you merge with these energies so you can begin inviting these new elevated vibrations into your soul.
Leo Black Super New Moon Ritual 2019
This ritual is best done July 31st through to August 8th, 2019. You only need to do the ritual once.
For this ritual, you will notice there are a lot of ingredients! This is because we are making a beautiful bowl of charged water for healing and awakening! Like all my rituals, they are designed to be completely adaptable. You don’t have to use all the ingredients listed here, just use them as a guide and feel free to edit when needed.
You will need:
- Smudging tool of choice
- Large bowl of clean water
- 3-4 of your favorite flowers or a handful of flower petals
- 1-7 crystals (see note below)
- 1 floating or tea light candle (see note below)
- 20 small strips of paper
- Pen or pencil
- August Cosmic Meditation track
- 1 piece of jewelry you wear often and don’t mind getting wet (optional)
Crystals: If you have them, one crystal for each of the seven chakras of the body would be great, otherwise, just choose whatever crystals you feel drawn to or skip them altogether. The crystals will need to be small enough to fit into your bowl of water. Your crystals are going to get wet so make sure you use crystals that are water safe. Crystals ending in “-ite” like selenite or calcite do not hold up well in water.
Candle: if you don’t have a floating or tea light candle you can also use a glass jar candle and stand it up in your bowl of water.
1.) Have all of your ingredients handy and start by smudging your aura and then your surroundings and ingredients. As you smudge your aura recite the following-
“I cleanse myself with light and loving energy. My defenses now come down. The guards and fears that have surrounded me for so long now melt to the floor. I am open and I am safe. I am radiating pure heart energy. I am cleansed. I am love.”
As you smudge your ritual ingredients and your space, feel free to recite the following-
“I cleanse this space and these ingredients with light and loving energy. My space is protected and pure. My ingredients are cleansed and full of vitality. Only love fills this space now. Only light fills this space now. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
2.) Start the ritual by doing the August Guided Meditation. In this meditation, you are going to work through each of your chakras. If you are familiar with how to do this on your own, feel free to guide yourself through the meditation if you would prefer.
3.) Sit in front of your bowl of water and take one of your crystals in your non-dominant hand. Gently begin rubbing the crystal to charge and activate it with your energy. When you feel it is warm or it begins tingling in your hand, gently place it into the bowl of water. Repeat this for all the crystals you are using.
If using, you can also do this same process with the piece of jewelry. When you feel it is charged up, add it to the bowl of water.
4.) Once all the crystals are in the water, cup one of the flowers or some of the flower petals in both hands. Imagine you are sending and receiving energy from the flower. Just be present with the flower and all of its vitality. Once you feel the energy exchange is complete, gently place the flower into the bowl of water. Repeat this till you have used all your flowers or petals.
5.) Now, light your candle and place it inside the bowl of water. Very gently, without knocking the candle, begin using your finger to gently swirl the water around.
6.) As you swirl the water, try to focus on the present moment. Watch the flow of the water and the movement of the objects inside. Just try to immerse yourself in the experience. When ready, recite the following mantra 7 times as you swirl the water. After each reciting, take one long and deep breath in and out.
“I relax and settle into the flow of my life. I trust that all is in Divine order and everything is unfolding for my highest good. I am safe. I am loved.”
7.) Now, take your small strips of paper and begin writing in 1-3 words, things that you want to bring into your life. For example, you can write “happiness” or “love” or “new adventures”. You can be more specific too if you wish. As you write each one, say it aloud and then drop it into the bowl of water. Be careful to not burn the paper.
For your reference, here is an idea of what it will look like. You can of course, make yours more beautiful and bigger than this. I just did this quickly so you can get a visual!
8.) Once you have all your papers in the bowl, wrap your hands around the bowl and recite the following-
“I am ready to welcome in the new. I am ready for new adventures to begin. I know no matter my past, that I deserve a brighter future. I know no matter what I have been through, I can find a more hopeful and loving experience moving forward. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”
9.) Leave your bowl of water to charge overnight. Please remember to blow out the candle if you are leaving the bowl unattended or going to sleep.
Note: if you are nervous about leaving your jewelry overnight, feel free to remove it from the bowl before bed. It will still be charged!
10.) In the morning, take out your crystals and jewelry and dry them gently with a towel. You can wear the jewelry, and keep the crystals near you if possible. You can discard the papers in the recycling or garden.
11.) Take the water and gently dab it over each chakra or in any other areas that you feel drawn to. You can use any remaining water to wash your hands or to rinse over your hair in the shower.
Happy Black New Moon!
