New Moon in Aries Solo Ritual

Does social distancing mean you will miss your regular moon circle? No worries. Here is a new moon in Aries solo ritual just for you! I suggest doing this in a dark space that is lit with a candle or candles within a day or two of the new moon. This will help you maximize the energy.

Before we begin, let’s visit with Aries and see what energy is coming in. This can help us to set our intention or prepare.

Aries Energy

The keywords for Aries are: fiery, impulsive, impatient, assertive, leadership, loud, beginnings, confident, courageous, fun, hot, fever, extroverted, passionate, explorer, selfish, tough, daring, direct, rude, expressive, foolhardy, and demanding.

Aries is a fire sign. It likes to be on the move and express its power. It’s good at starting, but maybe not so good at finishing.

Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of aggression, action, and sex. Mars brings energy to to bring things to life. It dares, encourages, and inspires movement, freedom, action, and struggle.

Ground Your Body/ Clear Your Mind

Since Aries likes movement, let’s get grounded by shaking off the day. Start by shaking your head eight times. Then your shoulders. Then arms, hands, torso, hips, right leg, right foot, left leg, and left foot. As you shake each body part, have fun with it. Feel the tension or strain of the day release. Feel your awareness of your body grow each time you shake.

When you’ve finished, take a few deep breaths into your belly to help clear your mind. Let any thoughts, emotions, judgments or distractions fade away as you focus on your breath, your body, and the space around you.

Create Sacred Space

Visualize a white circle around you that penetrates the darkness around you. Let it outline your sacred space. Let the light purify and protect all inside for the duration of your ritual.

Call in the energy of the moon. If there is any other spirits or energies that you have a relationship with and trust to be in the circle with you that can enhance this ritual, feel free to call that in as well. Feel the fiery, hot, power of Aries surround you.

Receive

Instead of being willful and taking charge, this month we’re going to ask that the new moon in Aries tell you what the universe wants for you. We’re going to be adventurous and surrender.

Perhaps there is something you can do for others. Maybe this is a time for you to break out and do something wild for yourself. Aries wants to go, go, go! The new moon wants to bring new things to life. Ask, “How can I use this Aries energy for the highest good of myself and humanity?” Meditate and allow the information to come to you.

Close

When you feel you have gotten a clear message from spirit, release the white light that contains your sacred space. Thank the energies that came to be with you. Enjoy some of your favorite herbal tea while you bask in the energy of the new moon. You may also wish to write down your messages in your journal so that you can remind yourself of the new Moon in Aries’ gift to you.
