Goals for the Quickening Moon

Happy New Moon day! At least, in my part of the world 🙂 February’s full moon is called the Quickening Moon in some Celtic traditions, and it is one of my favorites.

I love the tradition of picking a word for each year. A word to focus on, plan around, and maintain during mindfulness practice. 2018 is going to be big. I can already feel it, because this year, my psyche isn’t happy with just one word. It wants three.

Home

The first word that came to me for this year is “home”.
