LIBRA NEW MOON

September 28th, 2019

New moons mark beginnings and are the perfect time to go inward and set intention for any new project or idea. Lay the groundwork for what you want to manifest in the coming six months.

The time to say please, may I...

  • Basic energy: Beauty, Love, Sociability, Cooperation, Originality, Courtesy, Responsiveness

  • Color Association: Emerald

  • Element Association: Air

  • Suggested Focus: Sharing the Arts (music, painting, dance, writing); Spell work regarding Love, Friendship, Romance, Conflict Meditation, Improve Communication, Balance in giving and receiving

  • Be Careful: Indecisiveness

  • Clean and smudge:

    • Take a broom and get the energy moving.In a counterclockwise motion, sweep from the top to the bottom of every wall, corner, nook and cranny. (You don’t have to make actual contact with the surfaces. Imagine all the trapped energies being swept out into the open. Take your broom and now sweep the floors, from the back of the house out to the front of the house until you sweep everything out of the front door. If you feel like you want to deep clean, use Spiritual Cleansing Big Al Bath & Floor Wash or Sage Bath & Floor Wash and wipe down and/or wash the floors of the house or space you are cleansing.

    • Now you can smudge. Make sure to open every closet, every drawer, and every cabinet in the entire house. Also be sure to pull back curtains and open blinds so that windowsills are accessible. Make sure you can easily move around the whole house without bumping into anything or having to stop to open drawers or doors.

    • To begin the smudging ceremony, light the sage, sweetgrass, cedar or palo santo. (Remember to keep a dish under the burning herbs to catch any ash.) If you are having problems keeping it lit, occasionally blow on it to keep the embers burning—you want to continue to coax the flame until you get a steady smoke.

    • It does not matter where you start smudging. If you are performing the ritual in your home, you can start at the front door and work your way around from there, or you can start from the backyard and work your way inside but always go in a counterclockwise direction. What is important is that you smudge every inch of the house. This includes closets, basements, every room, the basement, and the attic (if accessible). Start at the door frame of each room and then work your way inside the room and be sure to smudge every corner, window, and, of course, closet. Be sure to send smoke up to each corner of the ceiling and along the corners of the walls. After all four corners are “smudged” with smoke, go to the center of the room and make a clockwise circle of smudge. Complete all rooms. You may also want to blow smoke near the drawers and in the closets.

    • As you go through your home, workplace, or other residence, be sure to repeat a prayer, verse, or saying that you feel will empower you. The more empowered you feel, the more commanding your presence, and this will help in removing unwanted entities and energies. Speak to yourself, to God, to the universe, to Mother Earth, to a Deity or to the energy of life. You might ask for particular protection in certain rooms or for forgiveness and peace in other rooms. You might ask for those you love to be able to see themselves as they really are when you smudge mirrors; ask that you may see yourself as you are, too.

    • After you complete all rooms, open as many windows and exterior doors as is practical to let the smoke be purged for at least 20 to 45 minutes as this will help "blow away" all the negative energies that you just worked to break apart and disperse.

    • Now bring in the positive energy.  Use bells and/or singing bowls to raise the vibrations of the cleansed space. In a clockwise motion, go around your house or space using sound to bring in the positive vibes.

 

  • Carve and Light a candle

    • You can either use a Zodiac Candle or a significant color candle for your intention setting. For Libra energy, you could use a pink candle to carve your intentions for love or romance work or a brown candle for grounding, conflict mediation and balance in giving and receiving. Envision the situation you are giving power to. Embrace the feeling you get thinking of the resolved situation and/or receiving exactly what you want. Take the candle and carve it while keeping your intentions in your mind’s eye. You can use a wooden stylus, dull knife, or other pointed carving tool. Please be careful! Start by carving something that binds the candle, and therefore binds the intention, like your subject’s name or a word that encompasses your intention, like balance or love.

    • After that, begin to associate symbols with your intent. When you think of what you want your intention to accomplish, what words or pictures come to mind first? You may have symbols that are relevant and powerful for you. Carve them in, and make sure your lines are deep. Hold your intention in your mind as you carve, focusing on achieving your goal from the moment the tool touches the wax.

    • After you have finished carving the candle, it is time to anoint it with oil and embellish the symbols. Wearing rubber gloves, thoroughly rub the surface of the candle with a spell oil of your choice. For this intention Libra Oil or Air Oil would be a good energy fit. Use plenty of oil and be sure to rub it thoroughly into all the nooks and crannies created by your carving.

    • After this, either pour an appropriate herb like Passion Flower or Rose Petals works well for both love and balance or appropriately colored glitter like pink over the surface of the candle (be sure to set down some newspaper to make cleanup easier!) and rub it in. Be sure to get the herbs/glitter into the carved designs of the candle, to help them stand out, and wipe it away from the flat, un-carved portions of the candle. The oil will help adhere the herbs/glitter to the candle, creating a uniquely beautiful, powerful ritual tool that is ideally suited to your needs. If you wish, you can fume the candle's jar with incense, add a drop of honey to the bottom as an offering, or wash it with saltwater or spiritual water before placing the candle inside.

    • Carving, anointing, and embellishing a spell candle allows you to add more power to your spell with every step. Each part involves deep meditation on your goals and choosing the materials that are most closely aligned with what you want. Remember that the most important part is your INTENTIONS. Stay focused and enjoy!

 

 

  • Meditate with crystals

    • A few crystals that are great with Libra energy are Citrine, Clear Quartz, Tiger’s Eye, and Lapis Lazuli.

    • After you have chosen your crystal, you are ready for your meditation. There is no right or wrong way to meditate—just as there is no right or wrong crystal to use—everyone’s meditations are unique.

    • The best way to utilize your crystals during your meditation is to hold them in your hands while meditating or lay them on your body, ideally so that they touch your skin.

    • If you are new to meditating with crystals, here is a simple daily meditation with crystals to use to help you get started:

      • First, find a quiet space where you feel comfortable and relaxed.

      • Sit quietly with the healing stones or crystals that you wish to use nearby.

      • Close your eyes and quiet your mind, focusing your attention on your breathing.

      • Pick up the crystals or stones and hold them comfortably in your hands.

      • Imagine your awareness spiraling down into the stone, feeling the energy of your crystal.

      • Breathe in the highest white light and let the crystal’s energy fill your mind and permeate your senses.

      • Visualize how grateful you are for everything you have and how much personal power you have. Your crystals and stones are listening.

      • RELAX your mind and your body. Sit with your crystals as long as you need.

      • When you are finished, and feel completely relaxed and at peace, complete the grounding process by seeing all aspects of your awareness spiraling back out of the crystal and into your body. Feel yourself connect with the Earth and your body.

      • Open your eyes and take a few deep breaths.

    • Now you may carry these stones with you and call on them when you need a boost of this loving and balancing energy.
