September New Moon 2023


This month's New Moon focuses on our intentions and reminds us that anything worth doing is worth doing well. It is a time to let go of self-doubt, perfectionism, and self-criticism as we step into our potential.


As I step into a new decade, I feel a calling to find a balance between accepting myself as I am and the excitement of transforming into the next best version of myself.


I believe the first step in accepting ourselves is letting go of the outrageous expectations we require to “earn” the love/respect of others. It is about looking inward. Far too often, we hold ourselves to an impossible standard… and through our shadow work, many of us have found it is connected to the internalized patriarchy we carry.


Let it go.


Instead of falling prey to shame, embarrassment, self-doubt, and should-ing all over ourselves - this New Moon reminds us to CLAIM OUR SOVEREIGNTY.


Instead of journal prompts this month, I want to encourage you to write yourself a love letter.


Shower yourself with compassion, shake off the shame of your unmet, unrealistic expectations, and embrace deep self-acceptance and appreciation despite any experiences that may have caused you pain, shame, or unworthiness. Remind yourself of the boundaries that are important to you and how you plan to honor them.


Take this opportunity to heal your inner child, accept you are worthy, and step into a season of being PROUD of yourself!


End your ceremony with setting intentions for the month ahead.


Wrapping you in love and light,
