New Moon Ritual for January
This New Moon falls in Aquarius; an unusual sign and one close to my heart. Aquarius energy is independent, it does things its own way and usually goes by the road less traveled. At the same time, it tends to be less emotional, more determined and practical.
This New Moon is just that; quiet determination. Over the last few days I have been focusing more on my long term plan. Head down, working hard, putting in overtime and thinking about the long term goals I want to manifest. The very practical and adult goals that are not always as sexy or exciting as my magical goals. But I need the balance of both goals.
We just saw a large shift in America and across the world but the question on everyone’s mind is ‘what’s next?’ This new moon brings the perfect follow-up energy to make an action plan; one that works all year long on ‘what’s next?’ This question isn’t directed to emotions or longing. It’s about concrete action, baby steps to take all year long, doing the work that will best help not just you in the present but also your long term goals and your community.
What’s next? This is the question I have been mulling over for days. I know I want some job stability and to keep my health care. I know that as much as I love living in Magic Manifestation Land, sometimes I have to come back to the practical side and do the work. I also know that I don’t want to live in fear for the next few years. Neither my body nor spirit can take it.
So, what’s next?
This is the energy we are working with right now; the (dare we say) rational side of magic. What’s next? What actions will I take this year to secure my life, to help my family and community, to bring some peace back to my life?
So, what’s next?
What comes next is a decision to stay awake to what’s happening in our country and the world and let my voice be heard. Next is the belief that that community is stronger together, not torn apart and that all of our lives are about to expand and grow.
Ritual for What’s Next
I love magic. Everyone that knows me knows this is my truth. But right now, I need to be living with both feet on the ground. We all do. So let’s use this new moon energy of magic to be practical and stay engaged. What’s next for you? What will you do this year to stay awake? What action steps can you take on a daily, weekly and monthly basis to manifest your dreams? This new moon is like homework; we don’t love doing it but it does improve our test scores and helps to keep us focused on the future. How can you keep the energy of this weekend alive all year long so that your community grows and feels stable? Make a list of all the things you want to do to keep your life feeling grounded. A list of all the practical things you can do to help manifest your dreams and another one of all the ways you can counter the unrest in our world with love. Keep this list handy so that on days when you feel down or scared, you can take one baby step to help get you back on track.
Also, more saltwater bathing this week. We need to keep our energy clean and focused. We are far from finished with the Warrior Goddess. We need to add her strength to our strength.
