Setting the Energy for the New Year

written by Maggie Sale Ostara, PhD

Letting go, and birthing the new. We are deep in that cycle at the moment! For me, that means a number of things. One is that the last of our chickens has now been adopted by our neighbor, and our hen house stands empty. Our flock diminished heavily this fall to feed the foxes that live nearby.

Sunny-New-HomeWith one left, we asked our neighbor if she would take our last girl, Sunny, into her flock of ten. It’s been three days now, and even though they have not integrated, they are coexisting well, and we hope that they will integrate with time. Sunny was alone in the bitter cold we had recently, and we felt sad to have her in this situation. But we really didn’t want to grow our flock at this time – now we are allowing this phase of our life to “die” for awhile.

It’s ironic because having chickens and our own eggs has been an experience and symbol of the freedom and lifestyle we were seeking when we left the city and moved to the country four and a half years ago. This move is one of things that compelled me to get my work on-line so that we could have freedom to live where we wanted. As we let go of our flock for now, we still revel with gratitude in the country lifestyle that our business affords us.

Alongside that “death,” much is birthing as we set the energy for the New Year – and the New World now emerging. On Saturday we pivot into expanding light and energy with the Winter Solstice. I’m diving deep into my creativity for my upcoming Take Command event in January, sourcing during this fallow time for what’s most beneficial for those who are attending, and for my Tribe for the coming year. Much is happening below the surface to emerge as the days lengthen.

Sending you my blessings and much love during this potent, pivotal time,
