Dear Gentle Readers,
The new moon is the ideal time for new beginnings, and on January 1, 2014 we will have a new moon on the first day of the new year for the first time in nineteen years, making it the perfect time for a few reasonable New Year's Resolutions. And not the tired old "lose twenty pounds and get back in shape" one.
Why not learn a new skill? Or take a dance class? Plan that trip you've always wanted to take, then DO something to make it happen.
Do I really believe a phase of an astronomical body can have an effect on us? Of course not, but have you ever been in the ER on a full moon?
