During a new moon, the moon is not visible in the sky. This typically means the energy available is low. People often report feeling tired and drained during a new moon. This is a perfect opportunity to become self-reflective, to look inward. This is an ideal time to really think about want you want in life acknowledge your goals, set clear intentions towards those goals, and write to-do lists. A time for a fresh start, and to let go of those things in your life that no longer serve you. Here's a new beginning spell you can do during the new moon.
What you will need:
1. Sage or another cleansing herb to burn
First, make sure you’ve cleaned your home physically. Toss out things that no longer serve you. Disinfect, dust, vacuum; really make sure your space is “a fresh start”.
Next smoke cleanse your space. Grab a sage bundle or palo santo and walk your entire home, fanning the smoke and repeat, “Blessed smoke of the scared sage (or other herb of your choosing) cleanse and bless this home. Let the
negativity disperse like the sacred smoke leaving only purity and love behind.”
Repeat this until your entire home is cleansed or come up with your own little chant.
Because we want negativity to LEAVE the home, we will walk counterclockwise beginning at your front door and ending back at your front door.
The spell below should be done immediately after you have completed these tasks.
New Beginning spell
What you will need:
1. Rose Petals or another flower petal you resonate with.
2. Moon water.
3. Piece of quartz crystal.
4. White Candle.
Sit with your items in front of you.
Put the flower, candle, and water in front of you. Light the candle.
Hold the quartz crystal in your hand and just sit with it, entwining your energy with the crystal. The intention of this is a new beginning, a fresh start.
When you are comfortable and ready, say the following, take a deep breath and say, “I am beginning anew.”
Blow your breath across the quartz.
And then say, “I breathe newness, energy, and light into myself.”
Pass the quartz over the candle flame and repeat, “I have fire, passion, and radiance within me.”
Touch the quartz to the petals of the flower and repeat, “I am blooming, growing, and thriving. I am beautiful even in the darkest storms.”
Dunk the quartz in the moon water and take it back out and repeat, “I have healed, I have transcended, and I will never be defeated.”
Now hold the quartz to your heart and say, “I have begun anew, a fresh start, and I will live my life being, happy, free and with a mended heart.
Carry the stone with you and/or keep it by your bedside. Hold it when things get rough or you’re beginning to fall into your old, bad habits.
Do this spell anytime to recharge the crystal and your space anytime you feel you need too.

Associated with the passionate energies of fire, new life, and renewal, Imbolc is a Celtic festival that takes place on February 1st and celebrates the emergence of the spring only a few weeks away.

However, this powerful sabbat signifies more than just the physical changes happening on the earth around us and also brings our attention to the light and new changes that are beginning to grow within us.

Making Valentine’s extra special can be tricky sometimes, especially if we are not particularly crafty and are sporadically busy. While this may be true, the great thing about love is it finds a way. It always finds its way. Isn’t it fascinating how some people can pull off a grande surprise out of letters and papers? While some can cook a really good meal and some just know the exact perfect place to go. While some people, like me at times, can’t make up their minds.
And because of these factors, I’ve learned to focus on what I do best - Gift-giving. Yes, there are people like me who are best at giving gifts. And who knows, you’re just like me. For me, gift-giving is a form of art. It expresses someone in a way that manifests beauty such as love. It is a reservoir of a million thoughts, consideration and most importantly sincerity. So if you’re considering getting some gifts, you’re in the perfect place at a perfect time! Because, we have hand-picked the best gifts from our store that you can give to your lover or loved ones on this special day.

There’s no doubt about it; 2021 was a year full of change and transformation for everyone. However, instead of continuing to live in the hard times that it brought, it’s finally time to say goodbye to the old and embrace change with the new year of 2022. With that said, we will be kicking off the new year lingering in the sign of the Capricorn, pushing many of the signs towards a renewal of creative energy and new beginnings, which is bound to bring a refreshing change into our lives. This will be happening alongside the influence of Jupiter, which will be moving through the sensitive Pisces. As the planet of expansion, Jupiter will inspire us to move beyond our restrictions and channel a deeper, more sentimental approach to life that could have us reflecting a lot on our emotions. As a result, this will likely have all the signs feeling a need to slow down and disconnect for a while, and honestly, some slow movement may not be such a bad idea right now.
Aside from this, Venus also went into retrograde on December 19th, 2021, and will remain that way until January 29th, 2022. Since Venus is known to be the planet of love, when it is retrograde, energies can be a little uncertain for lovers. This could either stir communicational issues between partners or, surprisingly, pull partners closer. Either way, you’ll have to navigate the situation carefully, as all emotions, good and bad, are bound to be heightened. However, Venus isn’t the only planet going retrograde right now, as we will also be moving into Mercury retrograde again starting January 13th, which is bound to have the signs revisiting past emotional issues again. However, don’t see this as a burden, as this is actually an excellent opportunity to reflect on what energies we wish to take with us into the new year and which we want to leave behind and start making the necessary changes to make it happen. Lastly, we will then hit Aquarius season on January 20th, which will likely have the signs aligning more intimately with personal goals and values.
As you can see, January 2022 is bound to be full of the energies of rebirth, new beginnings, and reflection as we work to embrace the energies of the year, learning to leave the problems of the past year behind us once and for all. However, to give you a better idea of what energy you can feel personally, in this article, we’re going to touch on the changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout January and how you can better align yourself to truly make the most of it. Let’s get started.
