Midsummer Magic Transformation Ritual
This month the new super moon falls on the 13th June at 21.43 CET in Gemini, one of the air signs and which is ruled by Mercury. There are very strong new beginnings associated with this new moon. Gemini energy is all about self-expression, speaking our truth and creativity, coupled with the Mercury energy of communication we are encouraged to work out which of our thoughts are true and which ones come from our fears.
Our thoughts are so powerful they can dictate how we experience and see the world. They can also rule our lives if we don’t keep them in check and so on this New Moon we are going to be encouraged to look at and assess which thought processes and belief systems we are holding onto unnecessarily enabling us to clear them out and move forward.
This is the last new moon before the summer solstice and so we are presented with a time of healing and new beginnings before the transformative power of eclipse season starts.
Here is your transformative new moon ritual for this month, do this on or around the 13th, no more than 72 hours after the full moon.
You will need a pen and two sheets of paper, a candle, an insence stick or some sage. You will also need some items to create an altar for yourself, choose things that represent all that you are welcoming in during this new phase of the moon.
Find a comfortable place where you won't be disturbed. Sit comfortably.
Take a moment to breathe and connect to your higher self. Breathe in to the count of 4 and out to the count of 6. Allow your breath to infuse your being. When you are ready open your eyes. Light your candle and insence stick or sage and use it to cleanse your energy field by waving it around your body for a few moments.
Take your pen and first sheet of paper and answer these short questions -
- What are you talking about in your mind all day?
- What stories do you keep telling yourself?
- What thoughts are blocking you from moving forward?
When you feel you have written all you need to take your second piece of paper. Close your eyes for a moment and allow the breath to infuse your being once more, breathe deeply. Begin by asking yourself -
- What am I calling in during this new moon?
- What is the new beginning that I want to focus on?
- Am I doing all that I can to support this vision?
- What is the one action that I can do each day to support this vision?
- Am I truly aware of the potency of my thoughts and words? How can I use them to create more magic?
Allow these questions to help you to formulate your intentions for the coming month. Write them out by hand. Intentions that are written by hand are 40% more potent than when we type our intentions.
You can end your ritual by creating a beautiful altar to celebrate this new moon and to call in the energies that you wish to enhance during this period. Begin by placing your first items into the East of your circle and then continue placing items in a clockwise manner until you come back to the East of your circle. You can use crystals, shells, candles, photos, pictures, flowers, feathers, anything that speaks to you about your new moon intentions and the energies that you are calling forth.
You can place both papers onto your altar. Thank yourself and your higher power for guiding you today and every day. Continue to come back to your intentions and your altar daily to infuse the energy and opening fully into your life.
Here's to magical new beginnings!
