New moon in fiery Sagittarius, the truth seeker. A total solar eclipse (visible in South America) also occurs today.
This is a traditional time to perform ritual in honor of earth and sky. Light a candle, say a prayer, make an offering to Mama Earth, the sacred planet that is our beautiful home. Honor the plants and animals that have fed and nourished you all year. Thank the water and soil and sun.
Ritual doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple as sitting and listening to the potent dark of a long winter night.
Listen to the dark.
Ponder the ideas and plans you want to pursue in the year ahead. Every seed that will grow in the new year is already waiting in the dark. Begin to nourish them now.
