To the Cherokee, January is the time of the Cold Moon, to the Choctaw……it is the phase of the Cooking Moon—using stored food to get the tribe through the end of winter months, with renewed energy.
January in the Northern Hemisphere is the peak of winter, a tinging cold, when the chi cools and the old year dies. We say goodbye to the goat and get ready to welcome the creative monkey, bringer of solutions.
January is a quiet, introspective energy, time for big thoughts, and little talking. Emotions are best kept cool, temper tantrums, best not allowed [or aloud!]. Prepare, plan, enjoy soups, root vegetables. Focus on family, the hearth, the heart, the home…….if any mending needs to be done, now is the time! Create stories from happy memories and pass them on to loved ones.
All Good Things……
