Good Numbers for the New Year

Color of the day:  Maroon
Incense of the day:  Basil

Let’s use numerology as we move into this new year. Today’s date is 1-11-2022.

Here’s how to add it up:
1 + 1 + 1 = 3 (day + month)
2 + 2 + 2 = 6 ( year)
3 + 6 = 9

The number 9 signifies, among other things, the end of a cycle. (After 9, we begin again with 10 = 1.) Nine also means “awakening.” Before we awaken, of course, we’ve been asleep. Consider your current life and at least one issue, belief, or habit that you’ve been “asleep” about. What do you want to end so that you can awaken to something better?

In the tarot, card 9 of the major arcana is the Hermit. This figure is very wise and can help you review your “old stuff.”

Cast your circle (if you wish), light black and white candles, and set card 9 in the center between them. Speak to the Hermit and ask for help in finding what you need to end as this new year begins. Ask the Hermit what you need to awaken to.

When you have answers, speak
both resolutions aloud:

I am ending _______________.
I am awakening to ___________.

Let the two candles burn down safely, then open your circle and move into your awakened life.
