What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That’s not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our brides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that’s the burden of the year.
~ Ella Wheel Wilcox
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND WELCOME 2019!
The Goddesses of Winter in all of their myriad forms hold sway now – it is the time of the Crones and Wisdom Women. They keep vigil at the hearth fires, poke the coals, and sustain us in the darkest season. They are singing our souls home and giving us the strength to dream and vision our worlds – An Cailleach, Spider Woman, Baba Yaga, La Befana, the Norns, and the Fates.
The Cancer Full Moon on December 22 set the stage for an early eclipse season, beginning with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on 1/5/19. On 1/21/19 we also have a Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse coming, so prepping now is prepping for a more confident January.
Mary Lomando joined me for a Goddess Alive Radio Podcast on the Winter Solstice, Full Moon, and New Year Astrology – tune in for some great tips to navigate the cosmic dances coming in January!
Dark Moon Temple begins with the Goddess Lilith on January 3 for a discussion and ritual meditation and continues for every Dark Moon in 2019!
As we enter in the New Year, be gentle with yourselves. Create affirmations and goals for the New Year that support you and work on it throughout the year. Change begins with one small change. Wishing you a gorgeous renewal for your health, wealth, and spirit!
In gratitude, In light, and In Goddess,
