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 music that inspires your soul.
The Aquarius New Moon falls on Jan. 27 at 4:07 p.m. PST. It coincides with the Chinese New Year and the entrance of the cocky yet protective Year of the Fire Rooster. At this New Moon, it’s time to ask for help in making your dreams come true, handling your most pressing concerns, or benefiting the collective. Purify yourself before the ritual by bathing in scented salts or oil, then dress in flowing 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 I helped one young woman transform her Helpful People gua just prior to the Aquarius New Moon!
