January's Intentions ✨
Happy new year! 2023 is a year of community, leadership and innovation. Think about how you can integrate these key phrases into your daily commitments. On January 6th, the sky is graced with a Full Moon in Cancer. This is a chance to prioritise radical self care and regular check-ins with your body wisdom. This transit is an invitation to delve into what it means to merge the wisdom of the heart and mind. If you’ve been feeling tension lately, this is a good time to see where you feel it in your body, as the body keeps the score. On January 12th, Mars goes direct, which can catapult you into a whole new direction. Feel free to take a breath of relief, as the communication hotlines are clear without cosmic interference on January 18th as Mercury retrograde comes to an end. Fast forward to January 20th, we wish the radical Aquarius clan a happy solar return. Last but not least, we can celebrate a new lease of life on January 21st with the New Moon in Aquarius. This is an incredible time to set new intentions where you can fully commit to change.
It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn and a new year which submerges you into a month of sentimental reflections. You’ll probably catch yourself dusting off the ‘ole family album and absorbing generational history. Use this time to think about how you can shift your family legacy towards contributing to a climate positive future. It only takes one in a lineage to make a difference.
Journal question: What climate positive example can I set for my family?
A new burst of creative insight helps you lead the pack with focus, tenacity and integrity. When you place the humanity of all in the middle, you can see everyone's unique gift and can assign them to fulfilling roles. Be the advocate you wish you had.
Journal question: How can I take some extra time in my day to observe the unique talents in those around me?
Expect a flurry of quirky climate positive ideas to hit your mental stratosphere. As always you can juggle multiple hats, but be mindful to leave space to execute. Double down on your own voice, and show your community that out of the box ideas can be shaped and moulded into a concrete plan.
Journal question: How can I balance my time between strategising and execution?
What is the dreamiest eco-conscious collaboration you can think of? Faith will carry you through, if you don’t let any overthinking tendencies cast a shadow over your hope. Power up your imagination to call in partnerships that can create a ripple effect of change. Remember, it’s all about the quality of the connection rather than the quantity of them.
Journal question: What values do I look for in potential collaborators?
Even if there are times where you feel far from climate optimistic, you can gain extra insight into potential project mishaps that might throw a spanner in the works. Prevention is always better than cure, just don’t dwell in climate doom.
Journal question: What signs do I look for to know when it’s time to pivot a project?
As you step into the new year, you’re being handed a routine reset to clean up outdated climate habits that are simply a little rung out like an old dish rag. If you keep doing the same thing expecting different results, then it’s time to get back to the drawing board to make some magic.
Journal question: How can I clean up my climate routine hygiene?
If you’ve been putting some extra overtime in your climate projects, then expect a 360 moment as you start to see the threads of your efforts tie into a neat bow. Before you embark on your next project, take a step back and celebrate your heroic accomplishments.
Journal question: What lessons did I learn from the last climate initiatives?
Strip down your to-do list, and prioritise what will make the most impact for the majority. Launch a climate project that you can nurture over time, as one hit wonder plans are likely to fizzle out with a big bang.
Journal question: How can a long term climate initiative make a long lasting impact?
You have the power to band local communities together to funnel their collective energy into a singular omission. Instead of looking around the room to see who will step forward, put yourself on the podium and take action to instruct, direct and push the movement in the right direction.
Journal question: What leadership qualities do I look up to?
You’re on the end of a long climatic journey of inner transformation. As the old saying goes, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Instead of taking on the heaviest burdens as you usually do, lean on others to lead, and pull the right strings from afar.
Journal question: How can I best support others without sacrificing my peace in the process?
Place the highest bets on yourself, as you may feel a surge of inner power come to the fore. As you meet the riskier and more daring you, perhaps spin around the block to see what climate action you can take under your wing. Follow the yellow brick road of your curiosity as you may stumble upon a brand new vision.
Journal question: How can I give myself a chance to absorb my surroundings before committing to long term projects?
The journey of the mystic is often a long spindly road filled with unexpected twists and turns. Don’t worry if you feel as though you have a blindfold blocking your view of a climate positive future. But, the only way to see is to let go of your search for environmental perfection. To get from point A to point B throw caution to the wind and trust in the invisible.
Journal question: How can I trust that my climate consciousness is a never ending journey of inner growth?
