January New Moon

Saturday 28th January 2017 heralds a New Moon and the first one of the calendar year.  The moon also moves into Aquarius on Saturday too.

January comes out of darkness, the new year bringing new promise, new hope and new adventures.

Cold has taken hold of the land at this time but...Mother Nature is working away behind the scenes and I have already noticed the evenings becoming lighter slightly earlier than before.

We always refer to the earth as sleeping at this time but there is magic underfoot...

New Moon colours:
Green, white, orange and red

New Moon herbs, oil & incense ingredients
Sandalwood, frankincense, copal, myrrh, rose, saffron, sweet grass, heather, patchouli, cinnamon, lavender, verbena, witch hazel, jasmine, cardamom, cypress, ginger, nutmeg, orange, chamomile and lemon
