New Year, New Me...Nah, Not Really

To me, the coming of a new year is mostly about changing calendars.  It's just not a big deal.  Especially not now that I celebrate Yule just a week beforehand and it is completely trumped by the returning of the Sun. Superman, however, is far more contemplative than I am and got me into a thinking mood this New Years Eve. That combined with some divination done Yule night gave me a few insights for 2016.

Being a mama is great, but being me is still important.   I need to take a break and focus on a few things for myself.  This means getting serious about meditation and study again this year.  With two toddlers and two moves in 2015, I got so far off track that it isn't even funny.

If you don't use it, you use it.  Well, maybe not completely, but magickal powers do require work and practice.  I can feel my lack of magickal activity this past year, just like I can feel my lack of physical activity when I let myself get out of shape.  Spells I cast now require more effort and are more draining than similar spell work done a year ago. 

Yoga is worth waking up early for.  Lately, I want to sleep just as much as possible.  This afternoon I actually fell asleep in an upright chair in the living room.  No matter how badly I want the extra 30 minutes of sleep, dragging myself out of bed and doing my routine pays huge dividends by early evening when I am still able to move easily instead of being all achy. 

Like I said, no big resolutions.  Just a few things to think about with the upcoming year.  Here is wishing all of you a 2016 full of magick and wonder!
