I don't know about you but I was not ready to hit the ground running on the first day of this calendar year. I needed time to do nothing, to rest and recover from the last year or three or four.
Fortunately, I prefer to live my life by the cycles of the moon and am reviving myself just in time for the first new moon of the year today at 3:55 PM. This New Snow Moon in Aquarius ushers in the Chinese New Year tomorrow which opens the year of the Water Rabbit.
By the way, today's lunar event is the closest new moon since 1030, which is notable although I don't know what, if anything, it means.
So if you've neglected to set intentions for the year ahead or fallen off the Dry January wagon or already quit going to the gym, not to worry. Now is the time for setting intentions with the natural energy of the first full lunation of the year plus all of the planets are going direct. How can you lose?
Hippity hop. It's time to begin.
