Happy New Year. I hope you had a good year in 2015. I’m looking forward to 2016. New Year provides a good opportunity to reflect on the recent past and plan for the next twelve months or so.
The sun is always in Capricorn at New Year, and this is ruled by Saturn, the lord of time and responsibility. He also rules over reaping what we have sown.
We had a literal manifestation of that. Back in August 2014 we planted a few wheat ears and were delighted when they grew, so we harvested them, winnowed them and ground six whole ounces into flour. I did feel a bit like the little red hen – (except that I had help processing the wheat) and our neighbour, a commercial farmer, thought we were daft! We made biscuits from the flour on New Year’s Eve, it was a very labourious process, but a rewarding one, eating biscuits using home grown flour and my son loved them. We have planted the remaining wheat seeds back in to our allotment and are hoping for a loaf next year…! Saturn is like that, things can take a long time but they are often worth the wait.
Wishing you all a happy new year
