What it is:
Since the Winter Solstice, the sun has been reborn and days have very subtly been growing longer. Nature still lies dormant, though, and we are presented with an opportunity for womb-like growth alongside it.
13 times a year we experience a New Moon; an alignment that creates a completely dark night, but also offers an energetic reset button and opportunity to set new intentions.
"The powers of light and warmth seem the weakest, and we are immersed in the dark. But in the ancient Goddess traditions, darkness was not something fearful. White, the color of bone, of snow, was the color of death. Black, the color of fertile soil, was connected to the darkness of the womb, to gestation, fertility, possibility, and Mystery.
Which of the myriad potentials will come to light?
What kind of year will it be?
What child will be born from that womb?
That part depends on us. We are the midwives.
We must use our human hands to shape history,
our human minds to choose what qualities we need and want to bring to birth,
our human will to make the choice.
What will you choose?"
We can use our self-care ritual this month to plan our fresh start, doubling up the resetting power of both a new solar year and a new moon on the 13th. What new habits, traditions, and intentions are you inviting to support your own wellness so that you can continue to support the wellness of your loved ones and your community? What goals will you set and achieve? How will you hold yourself accountable? This month's kit will introduce a few tools to help support you on this journey.
What you get:

Red Clover, Strawberry leaf, and Calendula energetically invite success, joy, and prosperity, while physically offering anti-inflammatory and skin-nourishing benefits. Epsom salts relax sore muscles while oats soothe & moisturize dry winter skin.
If, like most humans who breathe, coffee is totally your jam, then don't worry: I'm not here to tell you to stop drinking it. You do you! But if you're thinking about cutting back or maybe just want the boost that comes from knowing you're adding something totally nourishing and liver supporting while still enjoying the ritual of brewing a cup of joe, give this chicory & roasted dandelion root a shot.
Maybe mix it half and half, I won't tell anyone.
