I love the way Storm Cestavani talks about the New Moon in Taurus on May 19, 2023. (See our May 2023 Astro Magic blog to see!) Yes, we’ve had lapses in judgment and made ill-advised decisions, but Storm affirms that this precious New Moon graciously grants us a path forward. Work with the energy of this New moon to learn from mistakes and start again to create the life you love.
Candle Ritual for laying fresh ground
You will need three blessed Herbal candles. Prosperity, Attraction/Love, and Stability. Or you can use the Abundance Blessing Kit. You will also need the appropriate-sized candleholders, a magazine, scissors, glue, paper, and a pen. As always, create a sacred space around you. If needed, do a self-guided meditation to release grief and anger about the past.
Now comes the fun. Go through the magazines and find some pictures that tell the story of what you want your life to look like and create a collage. Keep it modest in size, say no larger than an 81/2” x 11” sheet of paper. Feel free to add words to punctuate your intention and vision. Or, create a digital collage and print it out. Place the collage on the space where you will do your candle ritual. No printer? No worries, put it on your phone or tablet.
At three corners of the collage, place your unwrapped candles in candle holders. If you are using your phone or tablet, make sure the candles are far enough away from your device to keep them safe. Light your candles and say a few words. First, talk about what you are letting go, and second, what you are attracting into your life. Keep the candles burning for a while and spend time visualizing your path forward. What does it look like? Who will be there? Who will be helping you and who will you be helping? Think about the impact you will have on others and yourself. Then based on what you have learned from your past, visualize how you will handle your challenges as they arise. You have an opportunity to do things differently and better. Whenever you see yourself falling into old destructive habits, re-visualize how you want to be. If you are unable to see that, take your issues to a counselor or coach to help you work it through. I strongly encourage you to stay positive during your visualizations. You are creating your life from what you imagine.
When you are done, speak aloud again about your path forward. After you finish, feel grateful to God for all that you have in your life and blow out your candles. Repeat this ritual as many times as you need to.
