Spell of the Month – January by Sue Perryman

Goal setting for the year ahead spell

In January it is traditional to make a list of resolutions or goals that you want to achieve during the year ahead. These goals are made with the best of intention, but once life gets busy, or difficult many are easily dropped and forgotten. This spell is best done on a new moon.

To be successful, your goals need a firm, solid foundation and determination. You still need to do the hard work I'm afraid, but this spell will help your hopes and dreams to have a strong base from which to grow.

You will need:

. A square sheet of paper (I used green to correspond with growth, but use what you have)

. A Pen (again I used green)

. A small candle in a holder (green or brown for earth, but if you don’t have them white is fine)

. Matches or a lighter

. A green or brown crystal, or a pebble

. A small plant pot filled with compost

. Seeds: although it's only January plants such as salad leaves, spinach and culinary herbs can be grown on your kitchen window sill.
