New Moon Rituals for Your Life Path Number
Using your Life Path Number as a guide can help you create the most healing, emotionally restorative New Moon ritual for yourself. Each individual is different and unique, and New Moon rituals are hardly a one-size-fits-all experience.
Let’s explore the meaning of each Life Path Number to determine which rituals will suit you most during this lunar phase.
Life Path Number 1
Those born with the Life Path Number 1 are natural leaders. They know how to get what they want in life, and they aren’t likely to let anyone or anything stand in their way. You’re energetic and enthusiastic about life, which can help those around you feel more alive and excited. The New Moon is the perfect time for you to work on manifesting your goals.
New Moon Manifestation Ritual
Start this ritual by grounding yourself through meditation, yoga, or simply by place your feet directly onto the Earth below. Light your candle and breathe deeply. Now, spend at least 10 minutes visualizing the things you want to attract into your life.
When you feel ready, open your eyes and begin making a list of the things you most deeply want to manifest. Bury the paper outside in ground that will soak in the light of the Moon. Each time one of the items on your list appears in your life, practice gratitude for the Universe bringing that gift to you.
Life Path Number 2
This Life Path Number represents a person who places a high importance on their interpersonal relationships. You prefer to get along with others and try to reach a compromise over standing your ground. You may find it difficult to speak up for yourself from time to time, which is why a chakra balancing ritual is perfect for you.
New Moon Chakra Ritual
For this ritual, you’ll need sage, a lighter and a safe ashtray, and a piece of blue kyanite or bronzite – both of which naturally balance all seven major chakras in the body.
Find a sacred space that you feel comfortable in, and light your sage. Let the healing smoke travel around the room and over your body, clearing negative thoughts and emotions.
Now find a comfortable position to sit in and close your eyes. Hold the blue kyanite or bronzite to each chakra for a moment, breathing in deeply and imagining the energy of the crystal healing opening each chakra within the body. You can repeat this practice anytime you need a boost of confidence and harmony.

Life Path Number 3
Life Path Number 3s are creative and entertaining, as their personalities are unique and full of life. You desire genuine self-expression, and you can usually find solace in creative activities. Tapping into your intuition will further allow you to express yourself authentically, making an intuition enhancing ritual perfect for this New Moon.
New Moon Intuition Ritual
Start by gathering lavender – either fresh or in the form of essential oil – to calm the senses. You’ll need a piece of labradorite or moonstone to activate your intuition. You may also desire a notebook and a pen to capture your experience.
Take your supplies outside in a safe space that allows you to soak in the moonlight. Seated comfortably, begin this ritual by deeply inhaling the fragrance of the lavender. Notice the sensations you feel, like your heart rate slowing down, and your body relaxing.
Now hold the labradorite or moonstone in your left hand and close your eyes. Ask the Moon to guide you, to open up your center of intuition, and to allow you to hear the messages flowing towards you from the Universe. Breathe deeply and relax, taking note of anything happening within your body.
This ritual can be repeated anytime you need clearer communication with the Universe.
Life Path Number 4
Those born under the Life Path Number 4 are responsible and hard-working. They have a keen eye for detail, and they will rarely quit unless the job is done. These folks can be perfectionists, however, and they often find themselves demanding a lot from themselves and others. This New Moon, you deserve a ritual that helps you relax and live in the moment.
New Moon Soaking Ritual
Begin by cleaning your bathroom and making it as cozy as possible – light candles, burn incense, and put on your favorite music. Slice chilled cucumbers for your eyes. Pour bubbles into the tub and draw yourself a warm, relaxing bath.
Now sink into the water and simply breathe deeply, allowing the healing energy to penetrate your spirit and help your muscles relax. Feel the sensations in your body, like the warm water gently massaging your tired, achy body. Try not to think about work or deadlines; focus on the relaxing, gentle energy surrounding your body.
When you’re finished soaking, slip into your most comfortable pajamas and make a list of everything you love about yourself.
Life Path Number 5
Life Path Number 5s are full of curiosity, and they want to know everything they can about the world around them. These folks are deeply spiritual, and very drawn to their own idea of freedom. It can be hard for you to form deep bonds with others, as you may be afraid of losing that freedom. This is why opening your Heart chakra can be so useful during this New Moon.
New Moon Heart Opening Ritual
For this ritual, you’ll need incense or sage, rose quartz, malachite, and rose essential oil. Find a sacred space either in your home or outside in the presence of the New Moon. Burn your sage or incense to clear the space around you of any negativity or toxins.
Take your rose oil and place a small drop on each wrist, and one on each temple. Breathe in the loving, refreshing fragrance. Take your rose quartz and malachite and place one in each hand.
Now, close your eyes and imagine glowing white light surrounding your body, slowly gathering and concentrating on your Heart chakra. Think of your Heart unfolding like a beautiful rose. Imagine yourself overflowing with love. When you’re finished, take a moment to reevaluate your connections with others and see if you feel any differently about your loved ones.

Life Path Number 6
Those under the Life Path Number 6 are deeply devoted to the people they love, including their community. You’re a nurturer, and you want to care for those around you. However, you may forget to take care of your own needs frequently. You deserve a New Moon ritual that pampers the body and lifts the spirit.
New Moon Pampering Ritual
Carve out at least an hour for yourself and gather your favorite arts, crafts, hobbies, toys, movies, or video games. Slip into your comfiest pajamas, light a candle, and play your favorite album or playlist. Make sure to surround yourself with healing crystals like citrine, Tibetan quartz, and spirit quartz to help you relax and let go of negativity.
This is now a time for yourself – uninterrupted, planned time for you to do whatever your heart most deeply desires. You can binge your favorite TV show while eating ice cream, paint a picture, do a puzzle, or read a book.
Search your heart for the activities and experiences that will bring you the most joy during this pampering session. Place cucumbers over your eyes and listen to a podcast. Order takeout and enjoy the night off from cooking. Whatever you do, do it for you. When you’re finished, you’ll feel exhilarated and refreshed.

Life Path Number 7
Life Path Number 7s are philosophical and intellectual, desiring a deeper understanding of life’s mysteries. These people seek the truth in all situations, and they typically align with metaphysical practices – like astrology and tarot – which can bring them closer to an understanding of the Universe.
New Moon Tarot Ritual
For this ritual, you’ll need your favorite tarot deck, a mat or scarf to lay your cards out on, a lit candle, and a piece of labradorite. Place the mat or scarf down on a table or the floor, wherever you feel most comfortable. Place the labradorite in the upper, left-hand corner of the mat, and begin shuffling your cards.
As you shuffle, making your intentions known, ask the Universe for the answers you seek. Three card spreads are wildly popular for a reason, as they are efficient, easy, and customizable.
It’s up to you to decide what spread to use, but here are a few ideas for a three-card spread:
- Situation – obstacle – advice
- Mind – body – spirit
- Past – present – future
- Material state – emotional state – spiritual state
It might be useful to have a notebook and a pen with you to write about your reading and explore the themes and topics within.
Life Path Number 8
This Life Path Number indicates an individual who is charming, confident, and successful. This Life Path Number knows how to attain financial success and material wealth in this life. However, you may lose focus from time to time – like we all do. The New Moon is an excellent time to set your intentions, allowing you to solidify your desires in your mind and making it easier to manifest those desires.
New Moon Intention-Setting Ritual
Gather sage, a notebook, a pen, and a piece of citrine. Seat yourself in a comfortable position, in a sacred space in your home or outdoors. Light the sage, and allow the healing smoke to wash over you, clearing the area and your body of negativity. Place the citrine near the left side of your body to amplify manifestation.
Now make a list of what you want to manifest, and how you intend to get there. You can focus on objects or relationships, circumstances or experience. Here are a few ideas:
- I intend to get a raise this year
- I intend to spend more quality time with my family
- I intend to eat and live healthier
- I intend to love myself unconditionally
- I intent to be kind to myself and others
This is a personal exercise, so search your heart for the intentions that feel right to you. Setting your intentions during the New Moon will amplify the energy and help you stick to them!
Life Path Number 9
Those born under this Life Path Number are generous, wise, compassionate, and giving. You want to expand your understanding of the world and the people within it, and you’re always seeking new ways to broaden your horizons. Take advantage of the open, receptive energy of the New Moon by gathering Moon water, which is healing and energizing.
New Moon Lunar Water Ritual
While the Moon is often barely visible during the New Moon, its energy is still radiating all around us. For this ritual, you’ll need a mason jar or other sturdy container – preferably made of glass. Place a piece of cleansed moonstone at the bottom of the jar, pour filtered or spring water into the jar, and place it outside overnight.
In the morning, collect your New Moon water. You can drink this water to take in the energy of the New Moon, or you can get creative with your lunar water. Try pouring some of it into a spray bottle. Add a few small crystals and a couple drops of your favorite essential oil for a cleansing room and body spray.
You can also splash the water on your face when you need Universal insight, or just a refreshing wake-up.
Getting Creative with Your Rituals
While these rituals can act as guides, you may feel like mixing thing up and personalizing your own ritual. Get creative! Use the lunar energy to follow your heart and your intuition. Trust in yourself and understand that only you know what works best for you.
It doesn’t matter how you choose to celebrate the New Moon because your ritual is all about you. So, take the ideas you liked and see what else you can add to make the ritual your own!
