DOROTHEA’S ENERGY FORECAST
THE 1st MOON
DECEMBER 12th 2023- JANUARY 11th 2024.
THE DARK AND THE LIGHT
Thank you for taking this time to read my energy forecast. I am very excited about the first edition of many.
Following the natural cycles of the moon, earth and heavens, my energy forecast aligns itself with the cycles of the New Moon. This forecast covers the cycle of the 1st Moon, DECEMBER 12th 2023- JANUARY 11th 2024.
Mercury will also go retrograde on the date of the New Moon, December 12th 2023 until January 1st 2024.
The Full Moon will be in the sign of Cancer on December 26th.
The Winter Solstice takes center stage and occurs on Dec 21st 2023. The night of the Winter Solstice is the longest, darkest night of the year, it brings with it new beginnings and the birthing of the light.
So much of this cycle's energy is formed by the emergence of light and the balance of light and dark. I have a strong sense that the same influence will continue and resurface throughout the following moons. Being grounded in the presence through breath and mindfulness is both strengthening and calming during times of accelerated energy.
Wear your Light with HERKIMER DIAMOND QUARTZ, CLEAR CRYSTAL QUARTZ AND CITRINE. During times of darkness use GOLD OBSIDIAN to protect and hold the light for you.
It’s the holidays, Holy Days. Amongst an abundance of food and celebrations, a simple day of detox, drinking additional waters and herbal teas can be very helpful. Dandelion tea is cleansing for both liver and spirit. Once the holidays are over, communicate with your body using your intuition to release unhealthy habits.The days leading up to the new moon energetically support your intention to release and let go. Surround yourself with crystals of HALITE, PREHNITE AND BLACK TOURMALINE for toxic elimination.
Hold your heart dear, infuse it with love, faith and inspiration to make it joyful and open. Water is symbolic of Emotions. Cry tears of joy or purification, let go of emotional toxicity. Take healing detox baths, infused with crystals, bentonite clay, fennel powder and sea salt. Use ROSE QUARTZ , CLEAR CRYSTAL QUARTZ AND SMOKY QUARTZ in your bath and shower to aid the energetic detoxification of your emotional system.
Your Spirit: the element of fire symbolizes Spirit, Spirit is Light.
Create time and space for nourishing and expansive soul practices. Mindfulness, meditation, breath and learning to be grounded in the presence. It does not take extensive time to make room for your spiritual health. 5 - 10 minutes of conscious breathing daily will do amazing things for your spiritual well being. Meditate with AMETHYST, ANGELITE, SERAPHINITE to enhance your connection with spirit.
Your Mind: our minds are full with the residue of ways and beliefs that no longer serve our highest best. Let the old ways die their best death and transmute into fertile seeds to fertilize and nurture your future visions and intentions. Remember to think good thoughts! Use
CLEAR CRYSTAL QUARTZ, BLUE KYANITE, HERKIMER DIAMOND QUARTZ AND for clarity of mind and thought.
Mercury retrograde: Dec. 12th - Jan. 1, 2024 Mercury turns retrograde at years end, encouraging restructuring of your personal and creative space/time. Create the next steps along your sacred journey with intention and determination. Hidden miracles and blessings maybe on the way!
I am already looking forward to creating the next cycle forecast for you.
Sending Blessings of Peace and Light to you and yours always,
