I’ve revisited my word for the year, and have decided that it’s already time for a change. A friend mentioned to me that she reevaluates her word or theme of the year at each sabbat, and I think that is a wonderful idea. So, since Imbolc, I’ve been wondering if Flame is still relevant for me, and have decided that it’s no longer the one. The first weeks of this year have been a whirlwind of excitement and change. Much needed change that I’ve been pining for for a very long time.
I worked on my natal chart, using the amazing resources on astro.com, and discovered that not a single element of my chart is related to Water. I have mostly Earth elements, some Air and Fire, but not a bit of Water. This isn’t a surprise to me. I am a Capricorn, and extraordinarily stuck in my ways, although I try very hard to be as flexible as I can (which happens to not be very good at all, lol, but at least I am trying).
So, I have decided that this year will actually be a focus on the elements. I’ve already worked with the element of Fire, via my focus on the word Flame at the very start of the year. Now, I’m moving on to the element of Water, and my theme will be Flow Gently. This will be a challenge, and a wonderful exploration of my inner self, and I am very excited to get started, and to nurture that watery part of me that seems so hidden. I’ll explore this theme as long as feels right, and at each sabbat, I will check in with myself to see if that theme is still one that is helping me grow.
I like this new way of working with the “one word” concept, and I think that the fact that I’m willing and able to change my word/theme on a random day like today fits very well with the theme of going gently with the flow.
