|On this new moon, make way for renewal in your life. Often we think we want change, but we're not really prepared for it. Tonight, open yourself to whatever new beginning or restart you may need. Light a black votive candle ( or white as a substitute) and focus on something specific you need to renew. Do you have neglected projects or responsibilities? Something you're putting off ? Or maybe you just feel worn down and need a boost of energy. Find a comfortable place to sit or lie down while keeping the candle in sight. Breathe deeply and study the candle flame. Chant:
"New moon, new start,
You know what's in my heart.
You know just what I need.
Tonight I plant the seed."
Let the candle burn out safely. You can also charge an item such as a piece of jewelry, a statue, a crystal, etc., to serve as a reminder of your attitude of renewal.
