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!
