What is this year's theme? HAWK
The ability to see your life in perspective, to free you of unnecessary "baggage" and connect you to your ancestral roots...Once you know where you have come from and where you are going, your life will be filled with inspiration and enthusiasm, you will sense a new day dawning, and you will be able to make decisions with confidence.
How do I get there? EAGLE, drawn reversed
You may need to guard against the dangers of an overpowering intellect. The eagle, when it knows how to renew itself in the secret lake, is able to balance its masculine fiery qualities with the feminine, water qualities of the lake. But when it cannot find the secret lake, when we deny our minds access to the heart, our lives can become dry and sterile, our intellects harsh and overly analytical. Now may be the time to see whether your mind and your heart are in balance.
Where should I start? CRANE, drawn reversed
The crane stands alone for hours on end, simply observing and patiently waiting. But it's also able to join its colleagues to fly in formation or to dance together. You may need to learn the right balance between being alone and working with others. Spending too much time alone can create feelings of isolation and separation. Conversely, having no time to oneself can be an avoidance of self-knowledge and the uncomfortable feelings of loneliness. Spend a while looking at your life to see whether you give yourself enough time to have both these experiences.
oh i do love a shiny new year,
tis my fabby fav thing of all without a doubt.
more than birthdays, more than christmases.
this shiny new year will be all about
living in the moment of here and now.
letting the past go
trusting the future will take care of its self
and seeing the extra ordinary in the ordinary.
each and every day
right wherever my little feet happen to be planted.
i will not be making a list of resolutions
for the coming shiny new year.
rather i will be making a list of words.
daily reminders of being present in the moment
rather than drifting backwards or looking too far forwards.
hippity happy shiny new year to you dearest readers,
here's to it being the brightest, lightest one ever
