With every new year, we are offered the gift of being more and contributing more to the people we are called to serve as well as all life on this planet.

It is my deepest wish that you allow your blessings to come forth in such a way that your life, and the lives of others, will be forever changed for the better.

May you live totally in your joy, fully on purpose, and live the best year yet!

Using the energy of the New Moon, you may perform the following cleansing. (Final NEW MOON of the year comes around to offer us the space to pause and intentionally prepare to begin a New Year.)  You can also wait until New Year’s eve.

Purification WORKING

Light a smudging stick of sage or a blend of rosemary, sage, and sweetgrass 30 minutes before the midnight hour.

Open all the cabinets and closet doors of your home.

As you walk around, envision all lower vibrating energies being brought into the smoke and transmuted into higher vibrations.

Once you’ve filled your home with smoke (being mindful to not set off any smoke detectors), open your front doors (and patio/balcony door if you have one), and send the smoke out into the Universe.

Sit in your newly cleansed home and focus on the vibrations of well-being and good fortune.  While in this space, set your intentions for 2017. Intentions serve a higher purpose than traditional resolutions.

New Year’s Intentions:

  • I intend to live a life of purpose.
  • I intend to live from a compassionate, giving heart-space.
  • I intend to see the beauty in all of my interactions.
  • I intend to be more than I ever dreamed possible.

On a piece of paper, write down all the things that happened in 2016 that made you feel less than your optimal, Divine self.  Also, write down any lower emotions and thoughts you may have had on this paper.

At midnight, burn this paper, outside, in a fire-proof dish. Seeing them traveling into the heart of the Divine Mind to be transmuted from your life.

Lastly, take some cleansing herbs of sage and rosemary, and place them in a moderately warm bath. Fully submerge your body into this cleansing water, seeing yourself refreshed and able to receive the blessings of the new year.

NOTE: The moon will be in Aquarius until January 1 at 11:59pm Pacific then it will be Void of Course. So, be sure to do this spell will you have lunar support for a better future.

Attraction to all that is new and unusual, and an instinctive need for improvement, characterize the Moon in Aquarius. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional, and interactions are more impersonal than personal, under this influence. This is a time that promotes social gatherings, dealing with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas, and progressive changes. We are open to new methods of doing things and we have our eye on the future. It can be hard to stick to schedules now, as personal freedom is most important to us. (source: Cafe Astrology)
