Happy Lunar New year. Happy Chinese New year. Happy first day of the Celtic month of Rowan.
Lots of new beginnings. Isn’t that the good news about life? There are always new beginnings. Very few things are final and even the ones that are, aren’t because the way you think and feel about them change over time. But I digress.
I have decided that Mondays theme for the year will be the moon and the Goddess. More likely it will be Monday Goddess musings for the most part but then I will see.
In the USA Mondays are not a loved day. It is the first day back at work for most and therefore a drag. I have the lucky pleasure to be a stay at home mom which means not that I am on a constant vacation but rather I am never off work. Saturday or Tuesday doesn’t matter I am still up before the sun and working all day long. Day of the week might not make my life that much different, but phase of the moon does. Not just as a witch but as a mom too.
Did you know that Full Moons make kiddos a little loony? Sorry couldn’t help myself. I am not sure if it is pull of the moon or the brightness while they sleep, but I do know that I often think “what is going on with my kid?” and then realize “oh yeah the full moon is tomorrow.” For this we plan extra soothing activities around the Full Moon and maybe a longer nap, for both of us!
The New Moon starts the waxing phase or growing phase of the moon. I good time to focus on building and creating. You want something to grow with the moon. Work on establishing a new habit. Focus on it and watch it grow as the Moon gets larger. The Moon is also the symbol of the Goddess so lets not forget her. Ask her help in guiding you. Ask her what you should work on. Ask her what you should know.
Since Mondays are Moon Days and the Moon is the Goddess. Take some time on Mondays to still your thoughts and tell Her thank you for you blessings and ask Her if there is anything you should know.
