A New Year, New Moon & New Outlooks on Life


2022 got going with a Capricorn New Moon on the 2nd nudging us to look at old patterns and ways we can restructure our lives more productively, efficiently, and with responsible intention and enduring commitment. And although Capricorn wants to be more serious in approach, I’ve found that a balance of energies works a lot better for me, even though I’m strong in Cappy energy by way of my natal chart. That for me looks more like seriously committing to enjoying what ever I set out to do and making sure it satisfies my heart as well as my mission. And Uranus is adding all the glitter, as it forms a trine aspect with the New Moon that supports us to anchor in more worth and value with the life directions we are feeling called to.

I noted that right before the year shift, I was anchoring in a lot of inner child connection, faery essence, heart desires, and fun, fun, fun. Energies felt light, despite everything around me and I wasn’t going to let anything or anyone put a halt to what was calling to my heart.

But this isn’t the same old child energy of my past. It’s a strongly anchored child embodiment who has the backing of both her inner sacred male and female behind her so that she can be empowered with all the magick she came in with.

I already shared about the special time we had with our Vermont Faerie Family, but I also got to spend time with my niece, Violet, whom I’ve shared posts about in the past. She’s my brother and sister-in-law’s daughter whom we got to see while on our travels.

Violet and I always pick up right where we left off, even with years in between our seeing each other. And this trip was no different, giving us time to immerse in the enchanted forests of Vermont together, as we looked for Faery portals, mushrooms, and a LOT of fantastic rocks and raw quartz.

In fact, the only reason Violet was excited to go on a hike with us was because she’d been promised Aunt Tania would find her at least seven faery houses and portals.

We immediately surpassed that number three-fold and began collecting special rocks. I only carried three, as you can see in the photo, but Violet decided many were calling her name. She immediately made her jacket into a cradle for them and I giggled because she was a spitting image of me when I hike and do the same with all that I’m led to collect.

Everyone laughed because her ways were just like mine – the pure excitement over everything, the love for all things sparkly and nature-magickal, her determination to carry more weight than her own, and everything lighting her up like a Christmas tree around each corner.

There was no difference in the 9 year old Violet and the nearly 49 year old Tania.

And that’s the way I plan to keep things.

I gifted her a framed print of one of my whimsical rabbit prints for our early Christmas celebrations, “The Journey,” and to see her response to it with so much love, a twirl, and wide-eyed wonder of the story it depicts, was pure joy to me. “I LOVE it SO much!” she said and I heard later that she talked about it all night and morning and when I saw her she told me, “I think you really need to write a story about the rabbits in this Aunt Tania.” I smiled huge that she’d seen inside my heart.

So, yes, while we are entering a new cycle of a year, a month, and lunar phase that may point to our need to evaluate and review things before actually plunging away into our new ambitions and creative plans, liberation is available to us through these acts of restructuring our lives away from the old that no longer serves us…

I find the fresh, child-like eyes to be the ones I want my heart to lead with and that belief in anything being possible, the way I want my mind to construct the journey ahead.

We got to drive through many charming old Vermont bridges while on our trip, but this one was one we walked through.

It felt like a portal of transformation, where one emerges from the chrysalis of transition from self-restriction to self-expression.

To see with innocent eyes is not to be blind or naive, but to live from pure possibility, embody a resilient heart, extend kindness and compassion, and see hope around every corner.

The future is in the hands of each of us to mold a new world through connection to our hearts.

  1. It’s uncanny how much Violet really does look like you, too! Proof that we find our family even if not blood related. 🙂 ❤

    Priceless…..what a precious energy between you!!
    It warms my heart so deeply, and makes me so so happy- you describe your experience with her, as it is for me and the girls when we are out in nature…..even the older girls are lit up, and enter into another timeless time and space!! The other day when Annee and I were out in the forest, wandering and hovering over one Magickal thing after another, Annee turned to me and said, “I could stay out here FOREVER!!” And I said to Annee, “ME TOO!!” I feel as you, and will forever be the tiny faerie lit up with joy and wonder. It’s interesting too, how the special Magickal treasures that speak and want to come home with me from deep nature, when adults that come into my space see them, how they light up, and look at everything and you can see the hunger ti connect with such things, and their inner child lit up through their eyes…..!! And it’s really a very simple thing to do—go out, and let your inner child play!
    I love you. 🧚🏻‍♀️✨

    • Aw! Thank you! 🥰 I got to witness that firsthand between you and your girls and all the way they explored on our hike and the things they shared. Annee has some pretty incredible dreams! 😍 I believe it’s the way we connect to our inner child that leads us to find the incredible things that aren’t apparent otherwise. Kind of like the Polar Express movie and how adults lose the ability to hear the Christmas bell, unless they believe. 🤩 I love you too

  3. Im with Laura, you and Violet look like the spitting image of one another. So much faery pixie look going on, and a mischievous grin. Btw, I’m with Violet on you writing a book about the Bunnies. I’ve said it at least once. Good vote Violet. Hugs

    • aw! i love that ❤ yes, she does have that mischievous pixie energy going on too haha! 🙂 and thank you so much sweet D for ringing in with her on the supportive and encouraging words. that means a lot to me! as i told Violet, i do continue to have that in the works. 😉 big hugs and gratitude to you!

  4. How wonderful to play and explore with Violet, your twin forest fairy! 😘🧚‍♀️

  5. I love seeing the pure joy of a child like this, it’s something we lose as adults…
