New Year – New Beginning – Taking the Most Delicate Care

“Beginnings are fragile things. A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct.” ― Frank Herbert, Dune. And so here we are at the beginning of the new year, 2022. We take the most delicate care that everything is harmonious and balanced. That we have Right Relations with all the Kingdoms at this time, that we are poised and calm, that we bring beauty forth in all that we do. Our new year begins with a new moon (January 2) at 12 degrees Capricorn. New Moon seed for the new year. The seed is that of Initiation, humanity’s Initiation.

At the beginning of a new year, we create a template of Good for the rest of the year. Our first task in the new year is following the 12 zodiacal signs, with the Three Kings, on our way to Epiphany (January 6). Each of the twelve signs provides a keynote for the following twelve months.

Mary’s Day – The first day of each new year is dedicated to Mary, the feminine aspect, the Mother of the World. In pre-Christian Rome under the Julian calendar, the day was dedicated to Janus, god of gateways and beginnings, for whom January is also named. We honor Mary as the feminine template offering us virtues to imitate – kindness, care, comfort, nourishment and love. Mary, the Mother of the holy child, the Mother of the world, a Master within the Hierarchy, is a Gateway. We pray to Mary in times of need.

We are told to go slow into the new year. Slowness is connected to abundance. The month of January has multiple planetary changes including the first Mercury retrograde of the year joining the Venus Retrograde. The United States will return to its roots with a Pluto return, the first one in the history of our country.
