“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been…”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
Are you afraid of looking down? Well, then, look up.
You’ve come a full year through some trials and tribulations, to really say the least. Last week was about retrospection, stillness, and getting back to basics. This week is about taking the imperative to lay the groundwork and let go of feeling like you’re back at ground zero.
The Fool isn’t who you think he is. He’s learned from any mishaps and and is a sure-footed character. He’s ready to accept any challenge and knows that what seemed scary and dangerous before isn’t so scary after all. In fact, there’s a focus on being present and minimalism.
Maybe it’s helpful that he has an ally in his West Highland Terrier. Perhaps you’ve made a new ally, too. If not, look out… one’s on its way.
The New Year is filled with things that have never been. What will you choose to fill them with? More importantly, how will you fill the year…with a face full of angst or a sparkle in your eyes?
There will be a new moon on New Year’s Day, in stable, earthy Carpricorn, to herald new beginnings and new ideas. They say this happens once every nineteen years. No pressure. This year is a call to action you’ve been spending the last year preparing yourself for, stripping away the old patterns and the gunk. You’ll be feeling like part of you is growing up or restructuring. There’s more soul work on the way.
Get a bit more into the practical side and tighten up some loose ends. The start of the New Year may be less about resolutions and more about seeing again with new eyes.
