Leo Full Moon – SOFTEN

Yes, the world is going to hell in a handbasket, but at least there’s plenty of fire to toast the marshmallows (or marshMELLOWS as my kids like to say and I love to hear). The first full moon of 2021 is in Leo (January 28th, 19:16 GMT). Leo, sign of the sun, of direct action, of joyfulness, of play! Remember when we used to do that?

When things are difficult we have a choice. We can let that difficulty make us hard, or we can witness that difficulty and still find areas of softness. Seeds don’t grow well in compacted soil.

“History isn’t like that. History unravels gently, like an old sweater. It has been patched and darned many times, reknitted to suit different people, shoved in a box under the sink of censorship to be cut up for the dusters of propaganda, yet it always – eventually – manages to spring back into its old familiar shape. History has a habit of changing the people who think they are changing it. History always has a few tricks up its frayed sleeve. It’s been around a long time.”

― Terry Pratchett, Mort

Ritual/ Spellwork/ EveryDayMagic Suggestions

*Get back to gratitude. Write down something(s) everyday which you are grateful for.
*Do something which brings you joy, just because. Let it be something which doesn’t earn you any money or kudos. Do it for fun.
*Every time you encounter something which is upsetting and you feel that tightening try and release and breathe and remember the thing you last wrote in your gratitude list.
*Breath practice (Yoga With Adrienne on YouTube has an amazing playlist this month for Breath).
