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.

It’s yet again the transformative, emotional, and highly energetic time of the year, where we welcome in the notorious Mercury retrograde. Despite the fact that Mercury retrograde is an occurrence that happens multiple times each year, it never seems to fail to stir up the same old feelings of needing to bunker down and lie low for a few weeks. This is because, unlike planetary retrogrades, Mercury’s reversed influence can make our lives do a complete 180-degree turn, which can cause some difficulties in our communication, career development, and relationships.
However, while Mercury retrograde tends to get a bad rep for its ability to completely change our lives, it can also be an excellent time to complete tasks, work on creative projects, as well as do some inner workings. With that said, today, we’re going to talk all about Mercury retrograde, what it is, and what you should and should not do during it.

As we transition out of the warm nights of August, we steadily begin making our way through the abundant month of September, welcoming with it the many transitional properties of the autumn season. However, September isn’t just a welcoming period for the autumn itself, but for the second of the three harvest festivals of the Wheel of the Year, known as Mabon. Mabon, also known as the autumn equinox, is the sabbat that marks the time of which day and night are equal, when we gather our crops once more and enjoy the last bit of warmth before the cooler months take over. On a deeper level, Mabon also has many powerful energetic transitions taking place, which can push us to seek change, deeper spiritual connections, and inner wisdom as we approach one of the most symbolic days of the year.
With so much going on energetically, it can be hard to know the best ways to celebrate the energy of the season and fully welcome it into your space. So to help you out, in this article, we're going to go over everything having to do with the divine autumnal sabbat of Mabon. From its history to its correspondences, traditions, and a few ways you can celebrate it today, let’s dive into everything you need to know about this powerful sabbat.

As we welcome in the cooling harvest month of September, we make way for a transformative period of energetic change as we work to create better balance in our lives. We kick off this autumn month in the sign of the practical and goal-oriented Virgo, shifting our focus towards progression on our goals. This will provide the signs with some initial direction and clarity, which will help us to start the month feeling positive and rejuvenated. However, Mercury, the planet of communication and knowledge, will also be lurking in the background this month as it prepares to go retrograde for the third and final time this year, pushing us to do some inner reflection as we begin to work through stirred emotions. This could also bring about mental fog, miscommunication, and misunderstandings with partners, coworkers, and loved ones, so be prepared for some potential rough patches throughout the month.
Towards the end of September, on the 23rd, we will then shift into the partnership-focused Zodiac sign of the Libra, which will turn our attention towards family, friends, and community as we continue to grow and strengthen relationships as well as our own independence. We will also reach the Autumn Equinox the day before this, on September 22nd, which is considered to be a truly divine time of balance, inner reflection, growth, and gratitude as we prepare for yet another change of season into a calmer, more stagnant time of the year. This is also the time of which the veil between our world and the spirit world is growing increasingly thin, upping our intuitive abilities and connection to the other side. For this reason, be prepared for some deeper spiritual movements to occur this day, as it is an incredibly significant time of year for magical workings.
