The howl is the call to
Rest and Create. Both.
Not one or the other. Both now.

The howl is the call to
Reconvene Gentleness and Fierceness: Both.

Not one or the other. Both now.

The howl is the call to
Keep no collections of grievances
petty and large.
Throw that dung list away.
No wolf drags a long bag of yesterdays
behind them today.

The howl is the call to
instead, build your list of effective solutions
within your reach, and if not
practice your trapeze flying.
Wolves are the masters of the flying leap
that lands square. We can do this.

The howl is the call to
Collect your tendernesses and strengths. Both.

Not one or the other. Both. Like a true wolf.

La Loba, La que sabe,
whom I name She Who Knows,
says so…
in her long, long howl
‘at the first Full Moon
of this New Year.

All good come…
All good come now
both and all.
All. Good. Now. Come….

~Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes

it is time…..nothing means more than seeing what is directly in front of us…

inquiry for today~   manifesting isn’t as palpable as replenishing……..seek the richness of what is here……

how do you transition?

January takes its name from Janus, the old Roman god of gates and doorways and thus, thresholds and transitions. Most depictions of Janus show two faces looking in opposite directions, representing past and future, the old and the new. As ruler of endings and beginnings Janus was invoked at all major turning points in life. Thus, Janus was particularly present when time turned over in the long, dark nights where the end of a year comes round and a New Year begins it all again.

It is important to mark the beginning of the next year, not because it is a social occasion or simply a reason to get together. But because, consciously or unconsciously, we stand on the threshold of time turning over and can look both ways and assist the world to begin again and thereby tap the unseen potentials of life, of love and healing and meaningful change.
Consciously or unconsciously, we stand on the threshold of time turning over and can look both ways and assist the world to begin again and thereby tap the unseen potentials of life and love and the magic of change.

May the threshold of the New Year open before you in ways that reveal hidden potentials and more ways to live with meaning and purpose and imagination.
