Some ideas for a New Moon ritual:
- Start an intentions journal. At each New Moon, write down your wishes for yourself in the coming months/year(s). As you work with your spells or with yourself, take note of which intentions come true and which ones don't.
- Tend to your garden. While you water your plants or give them compost or fertilizer (we put coffee grinds in with our tomatoes), think of how you'd like to grow yourself. Picture yourself as the plant and how you'd like it to grow.
- If you have children, you can do the first ritual in scrapbook form. Have your children cut pictures of things that they dream for themselves. If you're an avid scrapbooker, you may want to do this for yourself. Sometimes having an image of the intention can help you meditate.
