HAPPY NEW YEAR! WELCOME 2020!
Winter is the Time of the Crones and Wisdom Women. They circle the hearth fires, poke the coals, and sustain us in the darkest nights. Singing our souls home, they guide us through the sifting and sorting of the inner journeywork that began in Autumn. We are halfway to our own wisdom and the Grandmothers give us permission to rest (even for a moment) into their comforting embrace. Call upon An Cailleach, Spider Woman, Baba Yaga, the Norns, the Fates, and Nicneven.
The Goddesses that live on the snowy tundras are standing vigil and ready for the sacrifices of the past year. What do you need to shed and leave to the harsh energies of the tundra? Take this opportunity to assess and make way for more light in your life, in your being for the coming year. Some of these Goddesses come with the mandate that you must transform or you will not survive the winter of your soul. Ask for assistance from Freya, Skadi, Berchta, and Mother Holle.
As we step into a new year and a new decade, I am sending out blessings and good wishes to all of you. This past year was so hard for so many people and I personally am delighted to hit the reset button on 2019! This is a perfect time to do an annual review and a banishing and blessing ceremony for what you truly want to bring into 2020. If it is not in alignment with your vision, then let it go!
Be gentle with yourselves and create intentions that support you. Remember we are between eclipses and the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer occurs on January 10. This will be an emotional moon so invite Goddess to support you.
Wishing you a magickal reset for your health, wealth, and spirit!
In gratitude, In light, and In Goddess,

Many of the Goddesses and Deities on the calendar are threshold deities and the turning of the New Year is truly a threshold leading to a new year and this year, to a new decade.
Offer symbols of prosperity to invite the blessings of the New Year with FortunaPrepare a feast of abundance for the harvest of Strenia. Hang a stick of Hawthorn over your door for the protection of Cardea. Sing Happy Birthday to Inanna. Sprinkle an offering of tobacco at the crossroads for the Orisha Eleggua. Leave a glass of wine out on Epiphany Eve for Befana. Appeal to Themis as Lady of Good Counsel for an oracle of your New Year. Hold Seidr with Frigg. Find the center of your home and light your hearth with Hestia. Decree a Jubilee Day in honor of Hathor with dancing, singing, and feasting. Speak your truth with Saraswati. Divine the gifts of Yggdrasil with the Norns. Light a fire for Brigid and keep vigil on the eve of her day. ~ Kimberly Moore, Goddess Planner 2020
