Happy New Year & Mercury Goes Direct – Planetary New Year’s Affirmations

December 30, 2023

Happy new year!

It is not a coincidence that the new year starts during Capricorn season. While Capricorn is not necessarily optimistic, she is a woman of action. She is here to do everything she can to bring positive change to this world and to humanity. She does not take things personally; she does not let her pain paralyze her. Her pain moves her forward. Every day she asks herself, what can I do to make things better? And she does just that.

In this spirit, I thought what I could do to make the world better right now. I decided to share these planetary blessings with you, hoping that they will lift your spirit and give you a boost to start the new year with enthusiasm and excitement, so that you can make this year the best one yet.

The blessings are written as affirmations that you can say out loud, chant as mantras, put on your fridge and share with others. They are based on my book, Planetary Balance for a Wholesome Life, which presents a new breakthrough way to look at astrology. I suggest choosing a few affirmations that speak to you the most and prioritizing them. What is most important for you this year?

Working with hundreds of people from all over the world, I’ve learned that regardless of the positions of the planets in our charts, there are some themes that repeat for all of us. In the book I am currently writing, Planetary Balance for a Wholesome Life, I’ve structured a new breakthrough astrological model that helps us bring each planet’s energy to a healthy balance. This balance allows us to express the unique sound we came to make in this world. We can then thrive while fulfilling our purpose and can attract the right people and the right circumstances into our lives. 

I invite you to learn more about it on my session, Empowering Astrology: Use the Wisdom of the Planets to Fulfill Your Purpose and Your Dreams, Monday, January 1, 5:40 EST
