The first New Moon of the Year is on Sunday, January 2nd. This is a perfect moon to take some time to be quiet, and to consider what lessons you are bringing forward into the New Year. It's also a great time to start taking stock of the tangible things in your home and life.
That is a good plan for the entire week, and Sunday with the moon in Capricorn gives you the perfect boost of energy to get started, and do that well.
How do you take stock? And what are the tangible things?
Especially after the last two years we have all had, this is a really important task to make time to do, and do well. And not to rush through in one day, but to re-visit during the week. And it's a good thing to get down on paper, because you will have some things you need to address.
What do you have in your pantry for food? If you needed to eat from just what's in the pantry could you survive for 3-5 days? Longer? That soup you haven't eaten in the back, you know the ones with the dust on the cans, what are the expiration dates? What's in the freezer? And the refrigerator, those condiments and things, are they still good, or just taking up space?
Water, what do you have available for water, for an emergency?
Medical supplies? Not just band aides (what sizes do you have), but how are the dates on the medications? Do you need to grab an extra tube of cream, or jar of chest rub? Where is the thermometer? Do you have a pulse oxygen meter? If not do you need one? Just go through the basics, and clear it out.
Shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, dish soap, dental supplies, masks.
Cash stash - do you have a cash stash on hand? You need one. And what about policies (insurance, banking) and copies of important papers; are they easy to grab and in a fire/flood proof bag?
If your power goes out for three days, how will you cook? Do you have propane, or briquets for the grill? Candles? Matches? Hand warmers?
Do you have a pet? Do you need to have anything on hand, or change identification data?
A good current picture of each family member and pet, just in case. Nope not a glamour shot, an actual picture that looks like that person on an average, everyday day. A clear face picture.
Tangible means the stuff you can pick up in your hand, and you can count. What do you have on hand? What needs to be used up, or just thrown out, and what do you need to get on your I need to get this list?
