New moons present an opportunity to wipe the slate clean, plant new seeds, set intentions, and clear away anything that does not serve you. The upcoming New Moon in Aries on March 28 is the perfect opportunity to work your tarot deck into a new moon ritual.
To get started, create a sacred space that speaks to what this specific new moon means to you. Tune in with yourself and ask what intentions you'd like to set—what seeds you are ready to plant. Since Aries is a fire sign, consider placing a few fire elements (candles and red crystals) on your altar, as well as a fireproof bowl, lighter or matches, paper, and a pen.
Take your High Priestess card and Emperor card out of your deck, and place them in front of you. Why? Because The High Priestess is ruled by The Moon, and The Emperor is ruled by Aries. Whenever we create Sacred Tarot Ceremony, we do so by connecting the ruling planet or sign with the corresponding card. Because this is a New Moon in Aries, we will take the card that corresponds with The Moon out of our deck, and Aries out of our deck. (If you are not familiar with what planets or signs align with which Tarot cards, a simple Google search will do the trick!)
Look deeply at your High Priestess Card and your Emperor card. Notice the differences, how they feel to you, what they represent. Tune in with your spiritual practice: Call the corners, drop in with source, anything that feels good to you. Then, ask the following questions, pulling an additional card out of your deck for each one:
1. What am I ready to release at this New Moon tonight?
2. What seeds in my life are ready to be planted?
3. What am I learning in this upcoming Moon Cycle?
Tune in with the cards you pulled, looking them up if need be. Journal and tune in with the messages they may be bringing you. If it moves you, you can write down everything you are ready to release in your life on a small piece of paper, then burn it using common sense in a fire-safe pot or bowl. You can do the same with what you're ready to call in as well. When you are ready, you can end or complete the ceremony in a way that feels right to you.
