There are two full moons in January this year! One of them is a supermoon on Jan 2nd, and a Blue Moon on the 31st, making the first month of 2018 quite special don’t you think? In numerology, 2018 is a Number 2 year, the number of intuition, partnership, and the Divine Feminine.
Collaborate with like-minded folk this year. Lasting partnerships will bud. Accept love’s invitation to forgive. Start over completely with a clean slate emotionally. Be ready to dive deep into what you love to do and enjoy your beloveds. Here are some ways to turn up the charm and captivate wonder’s spell for the coming year.
Have a party: Invite your closest friends and celebrate! Invite them to your home or meet at a favorite hangout. Make it a theme party, like a Practical Magic or Harry Potter party. Yes! Costumes in January! Or gather together under one of those mystical moons, served up my Mother Nature herself. Have things to munch on and candles lit. Pull oracle cards for each other and do temporary tattoos. Pass a crystal around, and have each person say one big thing they want to release, and one big thing they want to manifest for 2018.
Clear out your clutter: There’s no better way to tell the Universe that you want change by getting rid of old crap! Yes, a messy desk is a sign of great intelligence. But a messy car or bathroom? If you don’t have time, hire someone. Getting rid of stuff you don’t use anymore is a form of releasing. Clean out your wallet or get a new one. Take everything out of it. Wipe it down. Clean out the compartments. Clear its stagnant energy with incense or sage. Put things that represent wealth inside like ruby, green aventurine, jade, citrine and tiger’s eye crystals to attract fortune. Keep one hundred dollar bills in your wallet that you don’t spend.
Create a special Morning Practice: Chances are, if you read the BodyMindSpirit Guide, you’re already rockin’ a daily practice. Change it up to transform your whole experience. Bring sexy back and go wild! Play music. Dance yourself awake, or have your coffee in a beautiful kaftan and a pink wig. Dazzle up your journal writing with gold markers and add pictures.
Practice Moon Magic: Each full moon and new moon is the time to access the powers of the Universe. Connect to your Higher Power, however, you name it and to the never-ending mysterious rhythm of the turning seasons. Ritual elevates us to realms of possibility and creative potentiality. Simply said, it is the best time to manifest, divine and create.
Make a list of 5-10 things you really want to do this year: Include something that takes you a bit out of your comfort zone, and things that bring you comfort. Plan a trip to a place that’s been calling you. Donate to charity or to a local animal rescue. Start doing that one special thing you’ve always wanted to do, that hasn’t left you alone. Maybe it’s becoming a yoga practitioner or going to yoga class. Or writing a book or a blog. You will feel so much better at the end of the year!
I don’t do resolutions. I like intentions and to-dos. Cast your wishes and divine your desires. Claim your bliss. I love this quote from Tony Robbins. “Logic only gives man what he needs. Magic gives him what he wants.” We are off to a wickedly good start!
