The Bad Witch's New Year Resolutions for 2014

It was a wet and blustery start to the year yesterday, on January 1. With the darkness of the New Moon too, it wasn't a time when I felt like doing very much.

But, I did manage to make a small start to my plans for 2014. I hung up the Witches' CalendarI was given as a Yule present and sat down to write my list of New Year Resolutions.

I normally make a list of at least 10 things I want to achieve or places I want to visit over the year, because I find that if I write a list of several things I have a good chance of succeeding in at least some of them. However, in 2013 I was so busy that I only managed to achieve a few of my resolutions. I hope to do better this year, and this is what I'm aiming for:
  1. Explore one of London's Magnificent Seven cemeteries that I haven't already visited.
  2. Visit the remains of the London Mithraeum and also see the items that were found there and are now in the Museum of London.
  3. Visit the Rollright Stones. I've never been to this magnificent stone circle complex even though I intended to go there last year.  
  4. Go to the Day for Patricia Crowther in Nottingham on April 6.
  5. Visit the Viking Exhibition at the British Museum that runs from March to June. 
  6. Build a Wickerman - having recently been sent very clear instructions on how to do so.
  7. Having been given a CD of Sandra Ingerman’s Shamanic Meditationsat Yule, I intend to listen to the guided journeys over the months ahead.
  8. Do a psychogeography walk.
  9. Go to an outdoor ritual for the summer solstice.
  10. This summer, I have a holiday in Scotland planned. While I am there I hope to visit at least three ancient pagan sites.
I will, of course, blog about what I get up to as well.
