How does it feel to usher in a new year between December 30 and January 1?
Are you inspired, motivated, making lists and setting goals and planning big plans?
Or does today just feel like yesterday?
New year celebrations happen at different times for different people. Some celebrate the end of the year on the Winter Solstice, Chinese New Year isn't until January 28 this year, and I personally don't feel like anything is "new" until Spring- this year, on March 20.
The wonderful Maia Toll just reminded me today that we all move along at our own pace. She likened it to flowers- some will be popping up in February, and others won't break the surface till June. And it's true, some years I'm a June baby. That doesn't mean I've wasted the first half, just that I was still preparing till then. (Check out Maia's Witch Camp to join in the fun, like today's New Moon call.)
So take your own time with your new year. Be active or passive according to your own needs, instead of reactive towards everyone else's. And set broad intentions- she also reminded me that this is where the energy will go, so channel it towards good things.
Wishing you smiles, today and always!
