Manifesting your dreams can be powerful. Adding a little love astrology to the mix helps give you an extra boost to make it happen more easily. The most commonly used astrological occurrence for manifestation?

The New Moon!

New Moons are times for new beginnings, full of energy and enthusiasm. We’re going to have a New Moon in Cancer in 2 days, so it’s time to start focusing on what you want to manifest now.

This isn’t just any New Moon either - it comes with a Solar eclipse! Solar eclipses have much stronger energy, and you can use this to your advantage through manifestation. It’s time to some of that energy for yourself, and make your dreams come true.

New Moon Eclipse in Cancer & Love

The New Moon eclipse is in Cancer, an emotional Water sign that connects to our core selves and internal foundations. Cancer is guided by feelings, which can be extremely helpful with manifesting. You can feel more connected to whatever it is you want to create in your life.

A lot of manifesting is focused on money, but we’re going to focus on another big subject - love! We’re coming soon to the end of Venus retrograde, which has had love on thin ice for the last month, and it’s a great time to start planning for how you can make love more positive.

Manifesting healthy, abundant love serves all of us pretty well, whether we’re rediscovering that love in existing relationships and connections, or finding it in new ones.

And, since this is an eclipse, you’re more likely to find that this lasts for a while. Eclipse energy can last for six months before and after, while New Moon energy is only two weeks before and after. On top of which, this New Moon occurs at the very start of the zodiac sign Cancer, so you’re laying the foundation now for years to come.

New Moon Ritual Basics

You’ll want to carve out a little bit of time to actually perform your love ritual. It doesn’t have to be that long if you don’t have much time to spare, but ideally you’ll want at least 15 minutes, and up to an hour. It’s going to be the strongest on the day of the New Moon in Cancer (June 21), but you can technically do it any time in the two weeks before or after.

Gather together whatever supplies you’ll be using for your love ritual, and then clear your head. The easiest and simplest way to do this is to meditate for at least a few minutes:

  • Close your eyes
  • Take deep breaths
  • Relax your body as you visualize bright green light swirling around your heart (to activate your Heart chakra)

If you struggle with meditation, you can try something else that clears your mind, like listening to soft music, taking a shower or bath, or going for a walk.

The next step is to connect emotionally to the love you want to manifest:

  • Imagine love as you want it to feel in your life
  • Imagine being loved the way you want to be loved, and giving love in a healthy, positive way

Love should flow freely and abundantly to you and from you as an energy that is never depleted. You can envision love as a flowing current of energy being absorbed into you and flowing out of you.

After this, you can perform your love ritual. Once you’re done with your ritual, you can perform it again daily for two weeks, or you can simply envision the current of love flowing to and from you in abundance every day. This can stimulate love in your life, and help bring more love to you and open you up to love.

New Moon in Cancer Love Rituals for the Zodiac Signs

The following are simple love rituals for each of the zodiac signs depending on what this New Moon in Cancer is doing for you. You can deviate where you feel guided to - always trust your intuition when it’s speaking to you!

Aries

Water may be of assistance for you with this New Moon, so for your love ritual, try the water manifestation technique. You’ll need:

  • Water
  • 2 cups
  • Something to write with
  • 2 sheets of paper and tape (or 2 sticky notes)

On one piece of paper, write down what your current state is with love. On the second piece of paper, write down what you want love to be. Tape each sheet of paper (or sticky note) to each cup.

Pour water into the cup that has the paper with your current love state on it. Then pour that water from that cup into the second cup that has the paper with the love state you want. Hold that cup and let your emotions rise to the level of love that you want to have. Then drink the water!

Taurus

Writing things down may be of assistance to you with this New Moon, so for your love ritual, try the 55x5 manifestation technique. You’ll need:

  • Paper
  • Something to write with
  • An affirmation

The hardest part is your affirmation.

You need to come up with an affirmation of what exactly you desire, so if you want to improve your existing relationship, you can use something like: I am grateful that my relationship with (name) is loving and strong. You’ll usually want to start your affirmation with: I am grateful/thankful/blessed.

Write down your affirmation 55 times, and do so for 5 days (so 5 days in a row, 55 times each day). This technique gets you very focused on what you want to manifest.

Gemini

With the wonky energy you’ve had to deal with lately, you’ll likely benefit from some grounding. For your love ritual, try a grounding technique and utilize the Earth. You’ll need:

  • Paper
  • Something to write with
  • Match or lighter
  • Somewhere to bury the paper ashes

Stand with your feet firmly planted. Feel your weight in your legs, and imagine roots growing out of your body and into the Earth. Stay like this for a few minutes.

Then sit (on the ground, if you can) and write down what you want to manifest. Hold the paper and feel centered. Burn it, and bury the ashes.

Cancer

This New Moon eclipse is in your sign, so you hold a lot of the power, Cancer! For your love ritual, give the mirror technique a try. You’ll need:

  • A mirror (ideally large enough to see your whole torso, so likely not handheld)

In front of a mirror, say out loud what you want to manifest. Talk to yourself in a super positive way as if you’ve already manifested the love you want. It can almost be like a pep talk (like athletes give themselves before a big game). Shower yourself with praise and adoration, and see yourself the way you want the person you love to see you.

Make sure to repeat this at least twice a day. You can fit this in whenever you wash your hands if there’s a mirror above your sink!

Leo

Some water matched with some solitude may be of assistance to you, so for your love ritual, try a spiritual bath manifestation. You’ll need:

  • A bathtub (you can make do with a shower if that’s all you have)
  • Aesthetically pleasing items that make you think of love (candles, flowers, stones, etc.)
  • Essential oils and/or bubble bath to add to the water (think of your favorite smells)

Fill the tub with water, and add whatever essential oils or bubble bath you’re using. Surround it with the items you love, that you feel are beautiful, and make you think of love.

In the bath, take some deep breaths, and visualize the love that you want to manifest. If you use a stone or something that can be held in water, hold that over your heart (to activate your Heart chakra).

If you have to use a shower, add a few drops of essential oil, and place your items wherever you can. Hold your stone (or whatever is solid) to your heart as the water washes over you, and envision the water filling you with love energy. Picture the love you want in your mind.

Virgo

Normally the loner, you may actually benefit from utilizing others for your love ritual. Give group manifestation a try. You’ll need:

  • A group of people to manifest together

Gather together a group of people to manifest. You don’t have to all be together physically, and can each be in your own locations (so you can recruit helpers online).

Be clear about the love you want to manifest in advance, and select an exact date and time for everyone to manifest, as well as what they should do (recite a specific affirmation, use a specific mantra, sing a specific song, etc. and for how long).

When it’s happening, everyone in the group should visualize you, and feel loving, positive energy toward you. If it’s done right, you’ll feel it when it’s happening!

Libra

You may benefit from some traditional manifesting with this New Moon, so for your love ritual, use a vision board. You’ll need:

  • Paper and glue
  • Magazines (or online images you’ve printed out)

Vision boards are old-school manifestation 101. Go through magazines and cut out images that embody the feeling of love you want to manifest (or search online and print out and cut out images). Glue them to your paper.

You can also cut out words or phrases, or put together an affirmation on your vision board.

Feel free to adorn your board with glitter, stickers, or anything you feel is pretty, and then leave it out somewhere you’ll see daily. This will ensure you’re constantly focused on the love you want to manifest.

Scorpio

Fire may be helpful for you with this New Moon, so for your love ritual, use candles for manifestation. You’ll need:

  • Candles that correlate to love (pink for romance, red for passion, or green to activate your Heart chakra; you can use choose one candle, use one candle of each color, or if you can find a candle that has all three, use that; you can also buy the candle or make it yourself if you’re really crafty)
  • Match or lighter
  • Paper
  • Something to write with

Light your candle. If you’d like, you can dress the candle first (anoint with essential oil, or surround with herbs, flowers, or crystals). Once the candle is lit, stare into the flame and envision the love you want to manifest.

Once your mind is focused, write it down, and then place the piece of paper under the candle.

Let the candle burn out, or burn the candle for a period of time every day until it does. Then bury the piece of paper.

Sagittarius

A little bit of concocting can be helpful for you with this New Moon, so for your love ritual, try using a potion for manifesting. You’ll need:

  • Water (charged water works best, so water that you’ve already charged under a New or Full Moon, otherwise regular water is fine)
  • Herbs for love (any of your choosing; some options are: lavender, ginger, rosemary, cinnamon, sage - just make sure you don’t use anything you’re allergic to!)
  • Coffee filter and string or an empty tea bag (for infusion)

Place the herbs you’re using in the coffee filter and secure it with string, or put the herbs inside of the empty tea bag. You can use hot or cold water, whichever you prefer, for infusion. You’re basically making this like you’d make tea!

As it brews/infuses, visualize the love you want to manifest. You may want to recite an affirmation over the potion as well. Once done, drink the potion. You can choose to either drink it all at once or drink a little at a time each day until it’s all gone.

Capricorn

Scent may help you to stay centered with this New Moon, so for your love ritual, try using essential oils for manifesting. You’ll need:

  • Essential oils for love (some options are patchouli, ylang-ylang, rose, jasmine, and lavender)
  • Paper
  • Something to write with

Write down the love you want to manifest on the piece of paper. Open up the bottles of essential oils you’re using and let the scents get you in a loving mood.

Place a drop or two of each oil you’re using on the sheet of paper, and visualize the love you want.

Sleep with the paper underneath your pillow. Take it out daily as a reminder. You can add the oils to it as the scents fade to refresh.

Aquarius

You may want something tangible to use with this New Moon, so for your love ritual, try crystals for manifestation. You’ll need:

You’ll first want to cleanse your stone of any sludge energetically with the sea salt, if you haven’t cleansed it before. Simply submerge the stone in sea salt and leave it for 24 hours. This will remove any negative energy and keep it clear for you to imbue with your intentions.

For your ritual, hold the stone in your non-dominant hand (the one you don’t write with) over your heart (to connect with your Heart chakra), and visualize the love you want to manifest.

The stone will become connected to your heart energy and absorb your vision. Keep the stone with you in your pocket, sleep with it under your pillow, or just hold it for at least 5 minutes daily and connect with the vision in your mind.

Pisces

You may benefit from some sweetness with this New Moon, so for your love ritual, use a honey jar. You’ll need:

  • Honey (sugar can work as a substitute)
  • A small mason jar (or clean out a baby food jar!)
  • A piece of paper
  • Something to write with

If you’re focusing on love manifestation involving a certain person, write their name 9 times on the sheet of paper, and then write your name 9 times overlapping theirs; if you’re single and want to manifest new love, just write your own name 9 times.

Hold the paper to your heart (to activate your Heart chakra), and envision the love you want to manifest.

Fold it up and put it in the jar, and then pour in the honey (or sugar). Hold the jar and continue to envision the love you want to manifest (state an affirmation if you desire). Keep the jar out somewhere so you continue to hold it daily and envision love (if you use sugar, shake the jar daily).

Parting thoughts . . .

Don’t worry about getting it “right” or making your ritual “perfect” - there’s no such thing when it comes to this!

Do what you feel aligns with you, what you’re guided to, and what is accessible to you. Use these ritual ideas as a jumping-off point. It’s going to be more important that you remain consistent and focused.

Live and love!
