Anyone feeling particularly inspired today? It's a New Moon and she's traveling through Sagittarius right now, creating a sense of optimism, desire for freedom, and an openness to trying new things or doing old things in new ways.
The New Moon is a great time for starting things. What's begun now has a good chance to come to full manifestation by the Full Moon on the 21st (if you work it, of course), and with Sagittarius, that especially means projects that are new to you - a new technique, or something you 'never thought you could do'. It's a great time to shed old habits and developing new habits that work better for you.
Make a start on it now - even if all you have time to do is gather supplies or write up a list of steps to take. Set your intention to have it done by Yule. From what I understand, things are about to get a little rough, between retrograde Mercury next week making communications wonky, and the Moon moving into stolid, restrictive (reality-check) Capricorn tomorrow. So giving our intentions a bit of expansive Sagittarian New Moon energy can only help.
Tonight, I'll be creating my list of things to accomplish over the next couple of weeks, organizing what I need to do to set them in motion, and lighting a candle and having a bit of 'cakes and ale' to set my intentions. (I keep my rituals small, because whenever I think I might do more, I wind up failing to do them at all)
With this New Moon, we beginning gearing up for all that will manifest at Yule - for me, now is when the season seriously begins.
