  14. I love knitting! It’s the best. That’s a good New Years resolution. I suppose I always pick resolutions that are like maximum difficulty and rarely involve enjoying myself, so I didn’t think of it.

  18. I've never really done this kind of thing before so I do have a general sense of what I want to do but I'm sure I'll make changes within the first couple months as I can try out what works and what doesn't. Anyways, here's the current plan!

    new moon: make goal(s) for the month, spend some time on a hobby to recharge my energy
    crescent moon: create a more concrete plan of how I'll achieve my goal(s)
    first quarter moon: get the hardest/most tedious stuff on my schedule out of the way, do anything I've been putting off
    waxing gibbous moon: assess how goals are progressing so far, make adjustments
    full moon: practice self care, meditate with rose quartz to try to manifest more positivity
    waning gibbous moon: shadow work, appreciate the positive
    third quarter moon: therapy exercises, clean/cleanse my room
    waning moon: journaling, more self care time

  19. this is great! for some reason this is call me to bullet journal again. I'm usually in manifesting mode, trying to drum up energy and positivity around my goals and reading tarot, that kind of thing, but I don't usually do any of the other things that you mention on this list. Occasionally, i'll burn things on a new moon that i want to cast out of my life but I've only done that a couple times since i was a kid.

    let's start a witching thread! i want to get nerdy about this but i don't want to hog this thread with it haha.

  20. That's a cool idea, I really like the idea of burning things to cast them out on the new moon.

    And sure, I'm down! It's always interesting to learn about the ways other people do things and sometimes you get ideas for yourself in the process.
