Purify yourself and your space with an incense of your choice.
Bless yourself and your space with Holy Water.
Create Sacred Space by lighting a candle in the center of the altar.
Dark moons are times for banishing, letting go, and introspection.
Quarters and deities or totems could be called, but not necessarily as this is a very personal ritual. This is time for you to be with YOU.
Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Just breathe and relax in the silence. Allow the chaos of the month, the week, the day, to fall away. Just breathe.
Let go of whatever weighs you down this month.
Listen to your inner self for what you need in your life right now and how to go about achieving that goal or necessity.
Incense - sandalwood, benzoin, myrrh, vanilla, or rose (or herbal resin for the Dark Moon)
Holy Water - 3 cups of spring water with three pinches of sea salt and 1 teaspoon of orange blossom water
Candle - white, black, blue, or violet
Drink a comforting tea afterwards. A good tea would be Monk's Blend.
