Beckie lights candles at the beginning of her new moon ceremony in April 2018.

Like many other faiths, Beckie's rituals include an altar. One of the things on her altar is this crystal grid.

As she begins her ritual, she writes her intentions on candles prior to lighting them.

Beckie sprinkles salt around herself and her altar space. Salt is often used in rituals of this kind for protection against negative energy. Along with herself, she also sprinkled salt around me and her dog.

Chants, prayers, and meditations are also a part of Beckie's New Moon Rituals.
