is an ancient stone temple—solid, strong, secure. Sanctify this temple. Imagine a priestess is pouring sacred water and scattering rose petals, all the way down, from your head to your toes. Any anxiety or negativity washes away. Notice the thoughts and feelings leaving the temple—your judgments, your distracted mind, your worried heart. Be sure to honor them. Give each a smile and a piece of cake as it departs.

Draw a circle of protection, call in blessings…

Ritual: Pisces New Moon

Ground your body, clear your mind…

Draw a circle of protection, call in blessings…

Visualize a ring of fragrant flowers surrounding you, protecting you. Know that you are safe and relaxed. Breathe deeply. Feel the power of the Sun and Moon pouring into your circle. The energy of Pisces is gathering in your circle. Feel this natural expression of your unity with everything. Through Pisces, you connect to your higher mind via dreams. You connect with your culture through the imagery of the collective unconscious. You respond to life with imagination, poetry, music, and spiritual compassion. Through Pisces, you touch subtle energies and vast mysteries. This is a potent and sometimes overwhelming stuff. To meet it properly, you are encouraged to quiet your mind, calm your ego, and allow yourself to safely dissolve into higher realities. When you don’t prepare yourself adequately, you may experience the negative qualities of Pisces: addiction, deception, illusion, manipulation, victimization, and disillusion. But even these experiences can be a doorway to enlightenment. With addictions, for example, if you see yourself reaching for a drink, a cigarette, a credit card, you can name this for what it truly is: your desire to experience cosmic bliss. When you realize that this resides within, not in outer substances, that’s when you’ll touch the Pisces gift of enlightenment.

  • I use my fantasies to inspire
    constructive changes.
  • I feel the bliss of subtle energies
    in and around me.
  • My heart breaks open with divine compassion.
  • I can be sensitive and
    keep my boundaries strong.
  • When life gets confusing, I trust all
    is working towards the highest good.
  • My mind is clear. Daily meditation
    is my special treat.
  • Whenever I need angelic assistance, I ask.
  • I am a channel for spiritual healing as
    I travel through my daily life.

Ritual: Scorpio New Moon

Ground your body, clear your mind…

Become aware of your body. Notice how gravity holds and connects you to earth. It’s as though your body is an ancient stone temple—solid, strong, secure. Sanctify this temple.

Visualize a ring of fragrant flowers surrounding you, protecting you. Know that you are safe and relaxed. Breathe deeply. Feel the power of the Sun and Moon pouring into your circle. The energy of Scorpio is gathering in your circle. It is focused, probing and intense. Scorpio treads into territory that makes other signs squirm—like death, sexuality, and money. Scorpio’s ruler is Pluto, god of the underworld, lord of all the riches below ground, the jewels, the minerals, the oil. When we look underneath the surface of life, particularly into our own psychological depths, we likewise find great wealth. Scorpio asks us to confront our fears and hidden complexes. Making changes in this dark and shadowy territory increases our power in the outer world. Avoid this work and Scorpio loses its center, becoming vengeful, judgmental, and controlling—trying to grab its power illicitly, by stealing it from outer sources. Better to fearlessly confront the inner obstacles. Do this to release your passion, unlock your treasure chest of jewels. Remember that any Scorpio death is always followed by a blazing rebirth. Feel the unflinching strength of this sign as you read Scorpio’s affirmations.

  • I am focused.
  • Death is beautiful. I am fearless
    in the face of change.
  • I am a vibrant snake shedding old skin.
  • My sexuality is passionate and divine.
  • I am strongest when I’m vulnerable.
  • I weed out, clean out, throw out,
    everything I’ve outgrown.
  • Jealousy means I haven’t dreamed
    big enough for myself.
  • When I surrender, greater powers
    always come to my aid.

She makes us comfortable around those who are different from us, who hold opposite opinions, who push our buttons because they mirror the rejected parts of ourselves.

But don’t be confused. She is not into people-pleasing, self-sacrifice, or indecision. Those strategies come from people trying to act like the goddess without being the goddess.
