During these shortening days between Samhein and Yule, many Pagans spend time reviewing the year that’s ending and considering goals and objectives for the coming year. It seems odd to be doing that in this time of COVID. Who knows what next year will look like?
What tools do you use to engage in this process? What are you planning for next year?
(I borrowed this image from somewhere on the internet.)
What do you think about the Great Conjunction on December 21? Reading about the Age of Aquarius gives me hope–not unlike when I heard it sung back when the hippies also gave me hope.
Bwhahahahaha! Love that image! 😀 … mostly we tidy up/sweep out dust dragons from all the little forgotten corners of the house … then we do a ‘release the past, welcome the new’ ritual of some sort. It varies from year to year. 🙂
I love the way you use a journal — I may have to try that!
Great comment,, but I think it’s meant for someone else. 🙂
I keep a brief journal of what I got done each day. I review it on Samhein to see whether I did well on what I intended to do with the year, and then think about what I want to change when I dedicate myself to the next year at Yule (with a word of the year, following your suggestion, Hecate.) Do others use journals to hold themselves accountable? I find my memory of what I did during the year is pretty faulty without the extra help.
