New Moon Ceremony for Transformation

On the aries new moon, heal your inner warrior and courageously express the true you 

In this powerful astrological moment – with Mercury Retrograde in Aries coming to a close, a New Moon in Aries conjuncting the Aries Sun, and the transformative planet of Chiron entering Aries for the next eight years – we are being called to deeply heal our wounds around self-expression and self-actualization, so we can trailblaze our unique soul path with spiritual bravery and confidence.

In this experiential ceremony – with the loving support of Reiki energy – we will use breath and gentle movement to connect to our inner warrior, and open to the wisdom of the root chakra. Through somatic awareness and exploration, we will listen for the special healing messages your root chakra is sharing with you, and learn what needs to be released so you can fully embody your right to exist, to be here and to be the true you.

We will then journey to discover your true purpose in this life and retrieve your unique power symbol to support you in expressing your pure essence and gifts with deep empowerment and self trust. We will finish with a blessing practice to honor your adventures ahead.

Bring a journal and pen, and some colored pens/pencils to draw your power symbol.
