RITUAL FOR THE AQUARIUS NEW MOON
Calling The Angels
For this ritual you will need: a white or silver pillar candle, a silver box, an angel figure or picture, a paper on which you’ve written your needs, and soft music.
The Aquarius New Moon falls on Jan. 20 at 5:14 a.m. PST. It coincides with Mercury turning retrograde in Aquarius the next day, which prompts us to revisit people and groups that held meaning in the past. We’re entering the angelic realm at this New Moon, where we ask for help in making our wildest dreams come true, or in handling our most pressing mundane concerns. Purify yourself before this ritual by bathing in scented salts or oil, then dress in flowing white or pastel garments.
Sit in your Helpful People gua just to the right of your front door as you enter (which you have already cleansed and de-cluttered), put on the music and light the candle. Ask the angelic realm to be present at your ritual. You can call on particular guides like Archangel Michael or Gabriel, or an ancestor who serves as a guardian angel for you. Gaze at your angelic image as you tune in to that realm. Then, read your list, asking for the specific aid you require. This maybe something like, “Please protect me in my upcoming journey,” or “Please bring me $1200 by the end of this month.” You can also ask for help for other people.
When you’re complete, put the paper into the silver box, and blow out the candle. Thank the angels for the fulfillment of your wishes. And, watch the mini-slide-show below to see how one young woman transformed her Helpful People gua just prior to the Aquarius New Moon!
