Happy first week of December loves! I’m loving the cold, rainy weather here in LA. All I want to do is stay home, snuggled up with my family. Did you all know that Noa is now 6 months?! Time is flying by! Feeling it ALL.
This week we are greeted by an ever-expansive and mind-opening New Moon in Sagittarius in the early morning on December 7th. This moon is energizing and fueled with a spirit that challenges your expansion and growth, perfect for switching your intentions and manifestations to 2019.
New Moons are a beautiful time for new beginnings and new cycles. It’s a time to turn inward and set intentions whether emotional, physically or spiritually on the cycle ahead. This moon is challenging you to dream. Dream bigger than you’ve had all year.
New Moon in Sagittarius
The Sagittarius New Moon challenges us to seek optimism and expand your mind outward. You may feel a new sense of hope and uplifting. The eternal wanderer and traveler that is Sagittarius, offers us with mystical New Moon energy to expand our horizons and experience new experiences and new truths.
This is the time to allow yourself to leave the painful parts of your past behind and take hold of the inner work you did during Scorpio season and branch out, visualizing a brighter and more fulfilling path ahead. If you find yourself suffering in emotional, physical, or mental ways brought on by the struggles of the year - this New Moon offers hope and small joys in the magical little wonders of life. Instead of seeing a situation as it is, you will be able to imagine what your situation could be.
Full of adventurous and impulsive energy, this Sagittarius New Moon could give you that final push to move ahead on a big decision you’ve been troubled over or book that trip you’ve been longing for.
The Sagittarius New Moon this week encourages us to celebrate all that we have done and all that we have achieved over the year. It asks us to recognize the inner growth we have completed and to celebrate where we stand today. I can’t think of a better way to welcome in the final month of 2018.
New Moon Ritual
This ritual is to help you step into a more relaxed and positive state of mind for the final month of the year. It is going to use the energy of the New Moon to help you celebrate where you are, and all the hard work you have achieved throughout the year.
Inner growth was a huge part of 2018, so even if you feel like you haven’t done much, know on the inside you have been transforming + growing.
Crystals (choose one that calls out to you for the upcoming cycle)
Begin by cleansing yourself and your space with your Palo Santo. Light your candle and place it directly in front of you. Take your crystal, hold it in both your hands and press it against your heart center. Take 10 deep breaths here. Take in the energy pulsing around you and the energy of the crystal. Imagine yourself inhaling and exhaling with this vibrant energy.
Recite a mantra or affirmation while you’re doing this, such as -
I open myself so I may see the path to my highest destiny. With my gift of openness, I offer joy. I will fill my life with joy, love, and laughter.
I will turn big ideas into action.
Allow yourself during this New Moon to find happiness and give yourself love. Do something that brings you joy and fills you up. There are no limits and it can absolutely be something simple. Make yourself a healing + nourishing superfood smoothie like the Cacao Magic “JOY” Smoothie or baking warm chocolate chip cookies. Maybe it’s dancing around the living room with your littles or quieting your mind in a healing detox bath. Whatever it may be, allow your heart to completely fill up.
