New Moon Ceremony: 11th February 2021
- Check your moon in your time zone
- Interesting read from Astro Butterfly: New Moon In Aquarius – AQUARIFICATION
Happy New Moon guys!!
How is Mercury Retrograde treating you? We still have a few more days to go until the 21st of February. So it is important to remember that aside the obvious communication challenges that the retrograde brings us, is also a fantastic opportunity to focus inwards and revise outstanding projects, ideas and where we are and/or where we want to be.
I also suggest the reading of Astro Butterfly as I think is quite insightful, from a planetary perspective and easy to translate to your own life.
New Moons are about new beginnings and in our last ceremony we offered our service to a higher purpose by extending our area of influence.
This new world we are watching develop in front of our eyes is a wonderful opportunity to start new, like a blank canvas. Because it is teaching us that what's possible or impossible is just an agreement with our comfort zone and our belief system. And from a space where the conventions in our minds get broken, magic can happen. And our ceremonies are always about magic. That magic that you know deep down. Is familiar. It is a knowing, and brings a smile to your face. But most of the time can't be put into words... can only be felt.
As a new beginning we also experience the end of a cycle. Sometimes they can be big events, sometimes they are small. But one thing can not happen without the other. Destruction and creation are in fact the same thing looked from a different perspective.
So for this New Moon we are going to do a little ceremony was sent from my Spirit Guides yesterday and inspire but the Aquarius influence.
In Shamanism, the spirit boat is a guided shamanic journey to the island of the ancestors. A journey that is both spiritual and physical. It is a powerful tribal ritual for healing, revelation and insight. During the journey you will be guided to the ancestors by the beat of the drum and steered safely through the choppy waters that surround the island. If you have the chance to experience it an join a ceremony I highly recommended.
Inspired by this ancient tradition, for this ceremony we will use our intention and heart energy to create a boat. The aim is to bring us to new shores where truth, healing and transformation will take place. Our boat will be full of our "endings" but also with the "end" of something we know in our heart is holding back our world as we know it. I have asked you before to be the change in the world. I ask you today to "see it" in your minds eye and your heart. And ask our boat to bring us to this new world we want to create
In exchange, we will be asked to take action. And make one thing that would represent that change we see in the world. And you can also do the same thing with your own "endings"
Eg. If we feel that animal cruelty is something we will put in the boat, we can donate to a charity, change our diet or source of food, foster a pet, bring food to the woods for the wild animals, etc... your vision... your canvas... your action. You decide.
So this ceremony is going to be quite simple, but I'm going to ask you to be coherent. As this ceremony is about alignment about who we are and want to be.
If you want to do something extra, here is the "usual" pre ceremony you can use before doing your exercise. Light some candles, get a comfy blanket, create a space and mood that feels safe and comfortable. It's Me Time guys!
You can use the Shamanic Drumming Journey (15 minutes) from Martin Duffy (Shamanism Ireland) for the "pre" ceremony phase of the evening. You can have a little meditation or reflection time. Just some quiet time for you. If you are working on certain things that you want to let go use them as offerings:
a) We are going to transmute anything that’s going on with us at the moment... frustrations, fears, worries, etc... or things that we are working on.
b) Get a nice piece of paper and a nice lovely pen and write down the things you need to balance about yourself (consequently in your life) or just let go. In a way, the things that you need to get rid of or moderate.
Eg. I give away/let go my need to control, I give away/let go my need to please others, etc..
Your paper "must" include at the end of the page:
“For the good of all concerned and with no strings attached”
This is a must :)
c) Then read your paper and if you need add/change anything you want and once you are ready, you will burn the paper.
You might need to adapt this slightly but in a nutshell I would suggest you to say from your heart:
"I love you, I forgive you, I release you and I let you go".
And in that same process we:
"I love myself, I forgive myself, I release myself and I let this situation/habit/person... go".
Other variation could be:
”I love you, I forgive you, I forgive myself, I release you and I let you go”
Remember that any process of change starts within guys! We work on ourselves, so our self-expression changes = the world around us.
For this process we will need a piece of paper and go back to our childhood and remember how to build a paper boat. But before we do it, we can use the paper to write the things we are letting go: the endings that will fuel our new beginnings.
You can decorate, or paint your boat, or add a flag... whatever you feel in the mood and your creativity wants to explore.
Once you are happy with it, you can put your boat in water where it will be left overnight to get dissolved and transformed. And bring us the clarity of the path to follow, so we can reach the vision we want to create.
"Maybe the waters and the wind bring us to safe shores"
And with the simplicity of this ceremony I say goodbye for now.
Lets the magic begin!
Remember make it your own. Add, adapt and follow your rhythm. For the good of all concerned and with no strings attached.
And with this last remark we finish our ceremony offering our gratitude to the Universe and the circle.
Be awesome, embrace all that you are and thanks for taking part in this Ceremony.
Love you all,

PS: I’ll be putting your names down in my list to connect us all and use the channel to increase the energy of transmutation. This is not a shopping list: I need a new car, or my boyfriend is an asshole make him nice, or my boss is a bitch just turn her into a teddy bear… no my dears… that’s not how it works! Hahahaha but seriously we are not here to do dark magick, we don’t ask for others only for us and within us. But just in case, I bound the circle for the good of all concerned and with no strings attached.
If any of you don’t want their name to be added to my list, just shout! Text me, call me, let me know please. Your individuality and empowerment will always be honoured and respected. Always :)
