What a beginning to a ‘New Year’, wow oh wow, a Mother super moon on the very first day of the year and an ’11’ year in terms of numerology.
New Year’s is not the same for me as it is for a lot of other people, being a Priestess that honours the Wheel of the Year, Samhain is my ‘New Year’ of letting go of the dead and old and making space for the barren openness of Winter’s hibernation to regenerate new life in the inner realms of my soul’s darkened cave.
However, I love any holiday that is celebrated by the masses, (even the ones bemoaned as being fuelled by a consumerist agenda), as there is a collective energy that ensues. Any time that we take our one consciousness and focus it on a common energy of celebration, love, warmth and togetherness I feel as though we are finally pointing in the right direction energetically.
The interesting thing about the New Year of the Gregorian calendar year, is that it does resonate to a new set of numbers. Now, of all of the witchy things that I have a proclivity towards, practicing numerology is not one of them, I feel the power that lies within the art of numerology, it’s just not the practice that I’m called to serve in, in this lifetime. Thankfully there are powerful numerologists that exist and when the realm of numbers calls to me I find some juicy info to quench my desire.
I was pleasantly surprised at how energized, enlivened, peaceful and vibrant I felt today, it did not surprise me one bit to learn about the super moon in the beautiful, watery Cancer sign aligning with our 11 year.
I adore Cancer women and seem drawn to a lot of Cancer rising women, theres’s something about their womanly, nurturing, psychic dreamy presence that makes me feel at ease and loved. When the moon beams lunar rays of Cancer Mother energy down to me I know that all is well in the world. A super moon of course means that this energy is amplified. The first day of the 11 year is guided by amplified Motherly Psychic energy, yes please!
11 is a master number, one of spiritual enlightenment and love, this year is all about gaining deeper enlightenment in the realm of spiritual truth and focusing on the power of love, exactly what came to me in my psychic card reading (posted on my Instagram page, priestess_of_grace) this morning.
This moon is also named the ‘Wolf Moon’ and has been called the howling moon, this is reflected for me today in the constant howls of my 4 year old and 9 month old maidens that are non-stop, they are wired with this moon’s energy and their howls remind me of the pure, unadulterated strength of sound that we carry within us. Before the world silences and shames us we come here loud, proud and ready to howl, in fact it was just the other day that my 4 year old maiden howled at me these words: “I’m allowed to feel my feelings!” yes you are dear one, yes you are.
I feel the culmination of all of these energies, the Mother, water, psychic ability, spiritual mastery, love, howling, coming together to illuminate the seeds that I am called to focus on in this upcoming calendar year. I have been feeling the pull to revisit the original, foundational roots of my spiritual path. These roots were weakened after I became a mother and jumped into primal security and survival for my tribe mode. I feel as though I am finally ready to take these truths that I could flow with and live in faith with in my single years and carry my family on them as well.
I feel the Mother calling me close to Her, reminding me that She is my caretaker and that I am here only to receive Her love and to extend it, all else She will take care of. I am to howl the truth when fear rears it’s ugly head, to look up to the silvery beams of the moon and howl loudly to Mother of Us All. She hears my cries and responds to my needs as any loving Mother would. I am only to focus on Love and on Her presence, ever with me.
This year my focus is a closer awareness of Mother, an unwavering commitment to love and surrender to the flow of service that my Mother calls me too. I will soak the beams of tonight’s moon up and go deep into meditation, igniting the super moon, Cancer and 11 energies that are here to begin my new year with, won’t you all join me in looking up into the face of the silvery Mother Moon and howling our commitment to love and to Her for this new year.
Grace Be With You and Happy New Year,
Priestess of Grace,
