January takes its name from Janus, the Roman god of beginnings and endings. He had two faces so he could see the future and the past! He was also the god of doors.
Naked trees and Moons.
Dark skies and stars.
Quieten, draw in,
Ice and snow
swirl and whirl
blankets and candles.
journals and books.
lamplight and shadows.
the seeds are held deep in the earth
Rest in mystery.
place of all possibility
Give yourself up to deep nourishment
In the fertile cauldron of the earth.
as the forces of nature soften your shell
Time and no time.
Time out of time.
Sleep and Dream.
Capricorn earth and water
Work is going on
Deep sleep know that stuff is happening
Drop out of bottom of out breath
Winter solstice – Jan 21st / end of lunation 1st Feb Chinese New Year
Suspended energies going in both directions light is rising but temperature dropping
let yourself be worked on by unseen processes
Quiescence Be still
Dormancy anything but dormant
Water coming in
Let all this seasonal stuff wash over/through me
