I hope this finds everyone warm and well in the New Year!

How are those resolutions going? Keeping them? Adjusting them? Abandoning them altogether? No matter how January has progressed for you to this point, it is not too late to create the movement and change you crave. 

The cards above deliver a clear message: THE TIME IS NOW!! The choice you make, the pathways you choose, the obstacles you face are all part of the process, and you are progressing more than you realize. Do not be troubled by the rough spots; they’re just speed bumps, not full stops. There is not time for stopping here – all these wands speak of quickly moving energy that will not loiter – but you must be mindful in your actions.  


It is the first Dark Moon of the New Year, an ideal opportunity to charge your resolutions with the power on intention. “Setting intentions” is frequently mentioned (here as well as other pages), and we all agree on one thing: choose your words wisely. This is similar to the reminder “Be careful what you wish for, lest it come true.” It is so very important to always remember the power of our intentions is our greatest strength. The Universe is always listening. To set clear intentions, I suggest the following:

  • Take a few moments of stillness: if you have a ritual for this, do it. If not, brew a cup of tea, sit down and sip it slowly, considering exactly the outcome you desire.
  • Clear your mind, envision your outcome: create a clear picture in your mind of outcome. Are you alone? Are you with people? Are you in a new home? New job? Whatever you are after, see it as fully as possible in your mind.
  • Write it down: once you know what it is you want, write it down – the more detail the better.

Once you have a clear intention in your mind, you can set it as you feel best; rituals are personal, create one that speaks to your own heart, and use it as you see fit.
