This year, a new moon appears on January 1st and 30th. A great time to ask blessings on new ventures, work spells for healing. Look to the first full moon for success with your casting. The light is low now and the fire is banked up high. There is time to weave new moon magic.
“Begin the New Year square with every man” said Robert B. Thomas, founder of the Farmer’s almanac.
Tidy up loose ends now, pay off debts, make room for the energies of the coming year, if you follow the Gregorian calendar. But really, no matter when you celebrate the New Year, that time is particularly ripe for beginnings of all types.
