Happy New Year + Context for This 2018 Shift

David and I are still busy here hosting my mom and contemplating our own pivotal 2017, with continued major shifts into 2018. Last New Year’s Eve, David and I drove to Kalamazoo from Goshen, IN for a mini-honeymoon at the Radisson, enjoying Kalamazoo’s First Night Celebration. I posted about our experiences here.

What I did not share was how we had reserved our 2016 holiday letter for mailing from the post office in Kalamazoo last New Year’s Eve. We did so with the strong, full intention that we would be living here next (this) year at this time. We felt magic in that symbolic action, and every time we pass that post office, we celebrate the results.

Here we are, and what a whirlwind year it’s been! We have so much gratitude and awe for how everything transpired, and the volume of physical work it took to make it so. For us, 2017 was very much about bringing ideas into tangible actions, step by step into the new. We expect 2018 to continue that trend but in a more expansive and even more grounded and disciplined way.

I don’t have time today to write a long post about the coming energies, but for those wanting more context, I’ll include the following links (and sometimes links within links). I do want to note three significant factors:

1) The Super Moon/Wolf Moon/Full Moon in Cancer on New Year’s Day.

2) All planets will be moving direct on January 2nd, which gives a jolt of forward momentum to long incubating intentions. They will all remain direct until March 8, 2018, so this first quarter supports major movement.

3) The preponderance of Capricorn energy, including Saturn and Sun in Capricorn. Think discipline, walking your talk, and making peace with your own inner patriarch.

4) The powerful Cancer Full Moon energy setting the tone and bringing emotions front and center.

Saturn rules Capricorn, and the Moon rules Cancer, so we’ve got a double whammy of extreme opposites inhabiting and thus strengthening their natural energy and influence. In short, it’s a powerful time — an invigorating, embodied, and potentially demanding start to the New Year. I wish you and yours a powerful recharge and reboot. Goodbye, 2017, and Happy 2018!
