new moon ritualYep, we were going to do a new moon ritual tonight, but I've decided to postpone it for a few days. As long as the moon is waxing, the ritual will work fine. This ritual will focus on emotional preparation for labor, both for ourselves and the kid. I definitely want us to talk to the kid about how we're going to treat him or her, how much we love him/her, etc.
We'll also invoke the Goddess to bless the journey we three will be taking in labor and delivery.
Finally, we'll describe the kind of labor we want and the intent behind it, raise energy to manifest our will, and poof! (heh), all will go well.
I'll be writing the ritual in the next few days. If anyone would like me to post it, just say the word. The last ritual we did was great - definition and dedication of labor roles and tools. This next one will be much more intense and involved, since it will be our last one before the baby is born.
I was thinking about Jen all through lunch - c'mon Sprout!
