Death and Rebirth
Cerridwen's appearance in your life heralds a time of death and rebirth. Something is dying and needs to be let go of, so something new can be born. We know the earth's dance of death and rebirth as the seasons. Matter cannot be created or destroyed but undergoes transformation. So do we. To live fully and in wholeness, we need to accept life in all that it is, which includes death and rebirth. Let go of what does not serve you and your wholeness. Perhaps you have reached the end of a cycle, a relationship, a job, and you fear letting it go. Or you feel that you are dying when only a piece of you needs to give way to the new. Perhaps the idea that there is death and only death is too painful for you to accept. Wholeness is nurtured when we become conscious that every stop on the path of life is also a step toward death and rebirth. Wholeness is achieved when we can say yes and do our dance with death and rebirth. Cerridwen says you will always get back what you give to me. It will be changed, it will be transformed, but you will get it back.
Rhiannon gallops into your life to tell you how to work with doubt. To doubt someone or something when your instincts are giving you warning signals is healthy. To spend time doubting yourself is self-negating and not very helpful. The best way of working with self-doubt is to turn it into self-questioning. Self-doubt leads you nowhere. Self-questioning gives you answers. Do you get stuck in doubt and let it turn your optimism into despair, your confidence into low self-esteem, your vitality into sluggishness and procrastination? Does doubt align itself with your fears to keep you from succeeding? Do the doubts of others shipwreck your dreamboat? Perhaps where the outside world is concerned, you need to exercise a bit more skepticism rather than trusting blindly. Rhiannon tells you not to let doubt erode your sacred self. Allow yourself to question rather than doubt so that you can gain the answers you need to continue on your path to wholeness.
Artemis has shot her arrow of selfhood into your life to help you focus on yourself. Have you been too much at the service of others without making sure you get what you need for yourself? Has it been too long since you had time to yourself or a space of your own? Do the boundaries of your selfhood seem blurred and indistinct? Do you feel you have no right to a self of your own, but must always be thinking of others, putting their needs first, until you don't know who you are or what you want? Now is the time to come into yourself. Now is the time to pay attention to the whispering voices of your own needs. Now is the time to take yourself back and celebrate and strengthen who you are. Artemis says that wholeness is nurtured when you honor, respect, and give time to yourself.
New Moon Ritual Idea
Cleanse Your Space
There are infinite ways to cleanse your sacred space; on this new moon, let us navigate a few helpful ways to clear out stagnant energy and revive your space.
Smudge: Start by opening your windows, so the smoke and negative energy have a place to exit. Using a smudge wand of your choice, ignite the bundle until it creates a steady ember and blow out the flame. Walk around the room, moving the smoke to all corners, doorways, windows, etc, envisioning any negative or stagnant energy leaving with the smoke out through the windows. Set your intention to fill the space with bright, positive, uplifting energy, or love, or whatever you intuitively feel you need to call in.
Sound Healing: Play beautiful, melodic music with a positive message, affirmations, or high frequencies. Singing bowls, clapping, instruments, bells, and any sounds will be effective so long as they come from a place of intention and bring you joy. Visualize the sound waves pushing out the old energy and filling the space with new high vibe energetics. Combine this method with dance to really get the energy moving!
Aromatherapy: Using a magickal mist or diffuser to break up and clear energy is possibly the quickest and most convenient way to cleanse your space. As you mist, you can speak of your intention to clear the space with a mantra that suits you. Visualization and intention can still be implemented in this method.
