Notes from a Wise Woman

New Moon Ritual

A New Moon in Cancer gives us the opportunity to sit with ourselves and dream. Tap into our intuition and explore our deepest desires. If you could have any single thing, what would you want for yourself? Take a chance to explore this without limits. Leave your nagging voice outside when you do this ritual. Dream your dreams and feel your feels fully with this one.


It is a time of renewal where we can start fresh. Cry if you need to cry. Forgive any past mistakes. The road that led you here helped create the person you are right now.


It's ok to reassess without criticizing yourself. New moon allows us quiet space to lick wounds and let go in peace. Honor your cycles. Resolve to break bad habits and set intentions anew. What do you want and need from your experiences in this life moving forward?


This ritual will help guide us in these endeavors.


Let's release old disappointments and look ahead with hope, Take this opportunity to connect with your inner passions and intuitions.
