How to celebrate the New Moon 🌑
  • Channel lunar energy and store it in a crystal for later use
  • Make new moon water
  • Perform any spells for new beginnings, cleansing, renewal, rebirth, peace, love, and healing 
  • Leave offerings for the moon 
  • Cleanse any tools, crystals, or other witchy items 
  • Cleanse yourself in the bath or shower - visualize any negative energy being washed down the drain (using soaps, shower gels, or bath oils that consist of scents like citrus, lavender, lemongrass, or anything else you associate with cleansing)
  • Cleanse your home
  • Put up new wards or renew wards that are currently in place
  • Take a ritual bath using herbs and oils that represent the moon (jasmine, lemon, sandalwood, honeysuckle, for example)
  • Alternately, use herbs and oils that represent rebirth and renewal instead (cedar, grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass, lime, etc.)
  • Light incense that corresponds to the moon
  • Start a new creative project 
  • Seek out new friendships or relationships 
  • Put in applications for employment, college, etc.
  • Break old or bad habits 
  • Treat yourself
A potion for new beginnings

Hello everyone! 💎🔮🌙
This is a moment of big changes in my life, both practically and spiritually. I decided to celebrate the new beginnings in my life with a potion that promotes changes, evolution and self-love. Tonight is also this month’s new moon, so this is really the best time to prepare this potion. 

Ingredients 🌸

  • Green tea for energy and cleansing
  • Dried rosebuds for new beginnings
  • Dried jasmine flowers for a clear vision of the future
  • Blackberries for protection and healing 
  • Maple syrup (or sweetener of choice) for self-love and self-indulgence

Recipe 🔮

Bring a pot of water to a boil, then turn off the heat and add the green tea leaves, rosebuds and jasmine. Let the herbs infuse for 5 minutes. Filter the herbs and add the berries while the tea is still hot, smash them with a fork and let them sit in the tea for about 10 minutes. Filter the potion, add the sweetener (to taste) and pour it in a bottle. You can refrigerate the potion or drink it warm. I also put a sigil on the bottle to reinforce the power of the potion, and i decorated it with rose quartz beads. 

May the new moon light your way!
Astrea 🔮🌙💎

“About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him-and I didn’t know how potent that part might be-that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.”
