Spiritual Practices for the Libra New Moon
To be done during the night of the Libra New Moon.
Bringing in New Love Ritual
Your will need:
• Jasmine Essential Oil
• 3 crystals – rose quartz is especially good
• 7 white candles (can be tea lights)
• 1 red candle
What to do.
Go into your bedroom and open your curtains. If it's warm enough, open your windows too and let the moonshine and breezes in.
Light the white candles and place them (safely) around your bedroom and make yourself comfortable on your bed, placing the unlit red candle on your bedside table.
Hold the crystals in the hand you write with. Visualize yourself in love; love, given and received, enhancing your life. At this point, put a few drops of the jasmine oil on your heart and third eye.
Focus on the type of relationship you want, how you want to share your days and what type of feelings you wish to have. This is not about focusing on a specific person – it is about the loving energy and qualities you want to attract to you. Things like honesty, commitment, respect and love for example. Close your eyes and visualize yourself with love and happiness in your life.
Focus on the three crystals in your hand and imagine them filling with the positive love
emotions you generate and your wish to attract love into your life. Then set the stones
around your red candle. Light your candle and let it burn all the way down. As the candle slowly burns, the energy you charged the stones with is slowly released.
