new-moon-rituals-for-your-sun-rising-sign-3

The 2017 New Moon rituals I wrote are based on the sign and house the new moon goes into on that particular date. These make good general rituals that everyone can use, regardless of their astrological sign. As the 12 astrological houses cover each facet of our lives, by doing each one of these rituals, you are certain to set intentions and energize each aspect of your personal and interpersonal life.

However, depending on when and where we were born, the new moon could be going through a different house for us. If you wanted to really super charge the energy for yourself, you could perform the ritual specific to the house in which the new moon will pass for you!

What’s an astrological house?

From Astrostyle.com

“Each house is associated with a set of traits, beginning from the self, and expanding outward into society and beyond. At the moment you were born, the planets were all in specific signs and houses. When an astrologer interprets your chart, she blends the meaning of each planet, the house it’s in, and the sign it’s in, to map the obstacles or gifts you’ll face in this lifetime.

When planets visit a house, they light up that part of your chart, and energize that house’s traits. Astrologers use the houses to predict which parts of your life will come into focus, and where you can take the best possible action. To learn more about a house, read about the sign that’s associated with it.

The first six houses are known as the “personal houses,” while the last six houses are known as the “interpersonal houses.””

If you know your rising sign aka ascendant, or even your regular star sign (sun sign) you can perform the specific new moon ritual for the house the new moon is going through for you.

Your star/sun sign is based on your birthdate and the sign you tell someone when they ask, “hey baby, what’s your sign?”

Which house will the new moon be in for me in 2017?

So, for example, I’m a Sagittarius rising and the first new moon of 2017 that happens in Aquarius will happen in my third house. I could choose to do the Gemini Third House ritual for that new moon because for my rising sign, the new moon is going through my third house, ruled by Gemini.

Use this handy chart to figure out which house the new moon is going through for you.

* There is no Capricorn new moon in 2017, thanks to 2016 having 13 new moons, two of which were in Capricorn, one in January 2016 and the other in December 2016. If you need a Capricorn 10th House ritual, send me a note and I’ll email you one!
