I’d rather not start off 2012 talking about new beginnings and resolutions. There’s been a lot of that going on and I think by now we all have our intentions set and I hope are making plans to pursue them. I did state my own intentions in my very last post of 2011 and if you’re interested to see my intentions, you can read them here. Likewise, I’m always interested in hearing what others might be working on, so please feel free to share!
With that being said, I think it’s time we move on to the month ahead. I, for one, am very excited. Not only is January a great opportunity to refine some misalignments of last year, it’s also my birthday month and generally speaking, I find January to be a very productive time for me. Plans are in the works and I am hopeful to finally make headway on some very personal aspirations of mine.
I did a little digging (love reading Nam Hari via 3HO.org) and numerologically speaking, January is just the month to lay the foundation for new plans. The Universe is ripe with creative energy, among other things, and with 2012 being a major year for change (2+0+1+2=5; 5 is the number of change) it’s time we lay down our hesitations and go forth with open hearts to create the lives we wish to live. Stay grounded with your breath and practice and you’ll be sure to weather anything that may come your way this year.
January dates to note
Jan 1: New Year’s (did you set your intentions?)
Jan. 9: Full Moon
Jan. 16: MLK Day
Jan. 23: New Moon and Chinese New Year–the year of the Water Dragon. Also, Mars also goes retrograde until April 14 on this day. While this is a great time to detox, diet and stick to your New Year’s resolutions, it’s also a time of major slow downs, so those pet projects of yours might not get the attention they need. Check out Gahl Sasson or Molly’s Astrology for more details.
Also, did you know that January is National Thank You Month? Why not send a little ‘thank you’ note to those in your life that mean the most.
What are you most looking forward to this month?
