As we move into a new year, we transition from decay to rebirth; the old to the new. This transition time of in-between is called “liminality”. For many of us, it’s uncomfortable to balance one foot in two places. Some times of liminality include ending one relationship before finding your next partner. Or quitting a job and looking for a new career. Moving to a new city, the change between the seasons, and personal growth changes as you let go of the old to make room for the new.
One of the most potent tools for this in-between time is setting intentions. To set an intention is to get a clear vision on how you want to feel and how you can live in alignment with your vision for yourself. The most powerful time to set intentions is on the New Moon each month. Every 29 days, a New Moon provides the energy that will manifest over the next 4 weeks!
On December 17th, the New Moon will be in the sign of Sagittarius, inviting us to move towards our One True Aim. This energy is all about conscious intention and mindful action. This is an especially strong energy that will help us close out 2017 so that we can start our new year with grace and purpose.
Sagittarius is a sign of seeking truth while experiencing freedom; sometimes freedom comes from discipline and order. So, what can you organize this month to allow you to live a new year in alignment with how you want to feel?
To let your intentions take flight throughout the coming year, take a moment to meditate on or journal the following:
What are a few things from 2017 that you feel you’re ready to let go of? What do you NOT want to carry into your new year?
What is one negative habit that you can work on letting go of these next few weeks to start your year off on a new foot?
What will be your personal theme for next year? It could be a word like “calm” or “joyful” or a personal mantra statement “I want to feel free” or “I am healing” …
What is one positive habit you’d like to incorporate into your daily routine in 2018?
To turn this into your own Moon Ceremony, gather a candle + lighter, a crystal or gemstone, and a journal + pen. After you write down your RELEASE answers, burn the paper (safely) or bury it in the ground. When you write down your INTENTION answers, hold your crystal close to your heart, take a deep breath in and a deep breath out. State your intention out loud, and then blow out your candle.
May your one true aim, your intention, inspire your daily actions and fuel your deepest dreams.
