Understanding Your Daily Focus
It’s a new year! I want to return to my favorite medium to
talk about cycles, beginnings, endings, and how we can focus this New Year
energy in productive ways. I have a little bit of a personal vendetta against
New Year’s resolutions and here is why: I was born on January 3, which I
lovingly refer to as Dead Christmas Tree Day. By the time my birthday rolls
around, everyone is broke, hungover, and on a diet. It’s the worst. I have had
to beg my friends for years to put their New Selves off for a few extra days to
indulge me. Now, in my thirties, it’s less important to me that people be
willing to party hard and flashy, thankfully, but the distaste for suddenly
dropping all things fun and luxurious in favor of restriction is just such a
Capricorn vibe, and one that I appreciate most of the time, but absolutely not
on my special day.
In this week’s Daily Focus, I want to look at how we can
approach cycles, endings, beginnings, restrictions, and indulgence, because
only by finding balance can we enact any long-term change.
Saturday, January 1
“Death. The card of endings, of change, of rebirth.”
This is the end and the beginning. It’s a time for looking
at what we’re letting go of, but not in a wasteful sense. In an ecological
sense, excrement can become the fertilizer for our internal soil. What crap, so
to speak, can we turn around and put beneath us, allowing it to be the catalyst
for something new. This card is about growth, about gardens, about the cycle of
life. Carry that energy with you.

“The Ten of Swords. A card of letting go, facing
fears, and leaving the worst behind you.”
This is one of the scary cards in the deck, one that
indicates the end of something you’ve fought hard for. It’s about being out of
options—or out of time. The year has ended, and the clock has, metaphorically
and literally, run out. It’s time to let go, and not in the way the Death card
asks us to, where we use our past as a foundation. Here it’s time to do things
differently, even if it means starting over.
Monday, January 3
“The Devil. A card of examining, embracing, and
understanding your vices.”
Oh, good old New Year’s resolutions! This is a time where we
are all forced to examine our vices. It makes sense, then, that this is the
card associated with Capricorn, who rules the skies above at this time. It’s an
interesting choice on the surface, but the more you understand about both the
card and the sign, the more the symbiosis of restriction and indulgence becomes
apparent and urgent. This is the time to examine what you want to change within
yourself, but also the time to understand that declaring change is not always
the best or most effective way to enact it.
Tuesday, January 4
“Eight of Swords. A card of looking inward, examining
our own flaws, and how we wish to navigate the world in light of those things.”
As much as this is a time to look at what we want to change about our behaviors, it’s also a good time to look inward at some of the more delicate and complicated behaviors that no longer serve us. It’s easy to make your goals about weight loss or socialization, but what about emotional regulation, time for yourself, and prioritizing rest?
Wednesday, January 5
“Four of Wands. A card of homecoming, celebration, and
This is a time to connect with loved ones and carry that
connection onward. A lot of us have just finished celebrations of the holidays,
be it Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah, or New Year’s. Now, as we transition
back into regular life, it’s important to keep the spirit of connection alive.
Winter is still going, and it’s long, so make sure you reach out to those you
Thursday, January 6
“Judgment. A card of testing the self, values, and
Like all new beginnings, this is a time to examine who you
are, who you want to be, and what paths lie ahead of you. It’s not just for
changing your body type or your hair color, it can also be about changing your
values, or how you act on those values. Judgment is a card of looking back and
asking yourself if you’ve done the things you needed to, if you learned the
lessons that you were meant to, and if you’re really ready to carry them into
whatever comes next.
Friday, January 7
“The World. A card of possibilities.”
It’s a new year! A new chance to grow, learn, and explore.
This, like any time, really, is a chance to recreate yourself. This week, I
urge you to look deeper than surface resolutions and think about the kind of
life you want to be living. Think about what you can do to make that world a
reality in a way that is sustainable and doable in the long term.
