The May New Moon in Taurus is April 30, 2022

I had a scheduling glitch! I’m so sorry… but today or tomorrow is perfect for your New Moon Abundance Spell. 💜

There are so many versions of the New Moon Blessings Abundance spell that no one knows who came up with the idea first! My Sister of the Fey, Annette Rochelle Aben, first introduced me to her version of the abundance spell several years ago… you know what? It worked! It’s all based on the Law of Abundance.

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 it already happened. Write it down.
  4. Commit to the affirmation by filling out the front of your abundance check.

Now, follow the steps below:

At least 24 hours AFTER a NEW MOON, write your abundance check. For this month, that is May 1st or 2nd, 2022

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 of area 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.

Put 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.

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.

      Thanks, Yvi. I scheduled it for the wrong time! Yikes… ah well, we can write our abundance checks today and still be in sync with the universe. <3

  2. Ah… I missed this month…
    Perhaps next month?

    Continued success on your home repairs. We finally got our ceiling fixed – though there are some spots we thought could have been done better. Hard to get good help. Especially when they make promises (not in writing) to use certain tools that they don’t show up with!!
