New Moon Blessings – Black New Moon in Taurus

The New Moon for May 2023 falls on May 19th EST. It’s called a Black Moon because it’s the third New Moon in a season (spring in the northern hemisphere, and autumn in Australia) that has four New Moons!

Laura Bruno explains these transitions HERE.

On the new moon of each month, we have the opportunity to reset our wishes and commitments to ourselves. This is the time we send these intentions out into the Universe.

The Basics of the Law of Attraction

What you send out, you get back. That is the basic premise of the Law of Attraction.

What is the Law of Abundance?

“The Law of Abundance is an abiding principle within universal laws. It is the simple fact that there is an unlimited source of everything we need or could ever want. This great abundance is already ours, infinitely available to all of us all the time.”

“This and all universes are made of Divine Energy. It is everywhere and in everything. Everything, including us, lives, moves and has its being in this Divine Energy. We ARE this Divine Energy. It is a live, infinite sea of love, joy, creativity, and goodwill. Divine Energy is the source of all abundance. It fills all space. The Law of Abundance states that there is nowhere it is not, so there is no lack anywhere, anytime. It is equally available to all aspects of itself, which includes you and me.”

To begin this ritual, take some time and focus your thoughts as though you have what you want, instead of concentrating on what you don’t have. The important part of this ritual is your intent. Write the answers to the following questions on the back of your abundance check.

  1. What is your current goal, wish or intention at this New Moon? Write it down.
  2. How will you make this happen? Write the actions you will take to make it happen.
  3. Turn this goal into your own affirmation. Act as if this goal has already happened. Write it down.
  4. Commit to the affirmation by filling out the front of your abundance check.

Now, follow the steps below:

24 hours AFTER a NEW MOON, write your abundance check.

1. 24 hours AFTER a New Moon, take a blank piece of paper to use as a check. Answer the questions above on one side. Flip it over and create a check. Leave the date blank. Write your name where the Pay to the Order wording is.

2. Where you would fill in a dollar amount, write Paid in full. (Do NOT write in an amount)

4. On the line underneath your name, where you would write out the dollar amount, write Paid in full. (Do NOT write in an amount). Don’t forget to answer the questions above and add them to the blank side of the check.

5. Sign the check: The Law of Abundance.

Place your prosperity check in a box of your choice and keep it in a safe place. Then, forget about it. The Universe will take it from there.

Let your checks accumulate in your place of safekeeping. Don’t destroy the previous month’s check when you write a new one. Some people wait until their collection totals a year before they release their old prosperity checks by burning them in a fire. You could burn them in a bonfire, a candle flame, or even your BBQ grill! Just be safe! 🔥 🕯 🔮

Get your crystals! Use the crystals that attract abundance and prosperity such as citrine, green aventurine, tiger’s eye, or jade. Keep these crystals in your place of safekeeping with your checks.

This month’s card is from the Moonology deck by Yasmin Boland. It is the Full Moon in Virgo: You are good enough.

This card says it’s time to be honest with yourself. Maybe you’re underrating yourself? Or, if you go to the other side of the scale, maybe you’re being too picky? This card asks you to give yourself some truthful answers. Pay attention to the details. Hard work brings results.

The Full Moon in Virgo is a time to sort out what is good for you. Declutter your life, your office and your home. Get rid of the things that don’t serve you any longer. Mind your energies… salt baths and meditation help keep you grounded. As the weather warms, walk in the grass barefoot. This will give you some natural grounding, plus feel really good on your feet. This is the time to start living a healthier life.

RAISE your karma by doing something good for someone else.

Affirmations create even more attraction for prosperity. It’s helpful to repeat these affirmations as you are putting your New Moon Abundance checks inside your place of safekeeping.

I deserve prosperity.

I am open to the ways abundance can manifest in my life.

I am thankful for the blessings and prosperity coming into my life.

I am thankful for the abundance in my life and welcome more.

I am open to abundance.

This month’s Affirmation:

“Every thought we think is creating our future.”

  1. I love this idea of writing myself a blank cheque for the universe to cash in! Isn’t it quite fitting that I’m a Virgo and also just embarked on a new project I hope will be very prosperous?

    1. I like the moonology/astrology stuff. It makes sense to me. And the moon… well there’s something that fascinates us all about the moon. It must be the pull of the tides and it affects us because we’re made of water too. Happy New Moon, Yvi.

  2. I LOVE this post, Colleen. You have given me much to consider – I will be returning to revisit your thoughts. You reminded me of a quote by Thoreau – “I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods

    I believe that your meditation approach brings amazing outcomes. Many thanks come with my hugs.

    1. Thanks, Rebecca. It is all about believing in one’s self. Thoreau is so correct. Onward and upward to our goals. We are truly what we think we are. Be bright and keep being the light. That’s this year’s mantra for me. Huge hugs coming right back to you!
