March New Moon - 11 rituals to ground, relax and recharge yourself
Today, March 23, 2023, the moon is 2 days old and is currently in the New Moon phase of its lunar cycle. Given that the Moon takes around a month (29.5 days) to orbit the Earth, there is a new Moon about once per month.
In actuality, the Roman words “mensis”, which means "month," and “metri”, which means "to measure," are the ancestors of the English term "moon." Because it is used to count the months, the Moon is known as the Moon.
The March New Moon is the perfect time to take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life and focus on yourself. It's a time to ground, relax, and recharge. Here are 11 rituals that you can do to make the most of the New Moon phase.
1. Visualise what you want
Take some time to close your eyes and envision the life you want to create for yourself. Visualisation can be a powerful tool for manifesting your dreams and goals.

This is a great way to tap into the energy of the New Moon and infuse it into your own life. Fill a jar with water and place it outside during the New Moon phase. When the moon is full, use this water to cleanse yourself and your home.
4. Light a candle
Lighting a candle is a simple ritual that can help you to focus your intent and set the mood for your ritual.
By energising your candle with a purpose you intend to realise during this moon cycle, you can take this ceremony a step further. Simply hold the flame, conjure up thoughts of love and gratitude, and ask the cosmos to grant your wishes. The candle should be lit, and then left to burn out naturally.
