wednesday marks the new moon of tevet, the 10th month of the jewish calendar year. according to kabbalah, the energy associated with this month is the physical sensation of anger which is quite powerful and playful when directed with integrity. tevet is also considered one of the three ‘harshest’ months of the year and is the first month that asks us to step out of winter hibernation and back into relationship with the world and other beings.
so this month could either feel like a heavy burden or a bright opportunity to express the lessons we’ve gathered in our cocoon, set goals for the future (hello capricorn), and transform our ways of relating - moving toward healthy intimacy and emotional maturity.
i feel grateful for this new moon and also happy to have the chanukah lights to provide some guidance as we begin again.
happy new moon to all you lovely beings..
and please check out the new moon project posts this month on our theme of ‘growing older’.. interesting and insightful stuff, for sure.
