The Month of January Marks the New Year —This Is Its Meaning and Symbolism!

- December 29, 2017

The first month January can be a tough time for some people.


It also has to do with ancient themes

of both hibernations and deep withdrawal.

Every one of us loves to pull on the threads of myth or old legends about symbolic answers. They include the personality traits of the seasons and the months of the year. One such thread to pull in our exploration of the meaning and symbolism of January is from Roman mythology, specifically Janus. He is the Roman God of doors, doorways, arches, openings, closings and so on. A lot of people may remember Janus as the ‘two-faced’ God.

The name of the month January comes from the God named Janus.


He was able to turn one face to reflect upon the past and another face, pointing upon the future.

The month of January marks the New Year for most of us.

It is a new beginning. Every beginning prompts us to thoughtfully consider some past events which have accumulated to this present moment. Janus, with all his hindsight and foresight, opens some doors. These doors are reflections of our past and contemplation of our future.

In essence, the God Janus is a kind of a bellhop or doorman for the mansions of our soul. Before us, as well as behind us, there are endless doorways of potential and possibilities. January proposes a perfect alignment of energies. These energies allow the opening of all these doors so that we may see the contents inside.  The God Janus might assist you with clarity about the potentials that you have. We are going to present you an example of one such meditation for clarification the meaning and symbolism of January.

January meditation for reflecting on doorways into the old, as well as the new

– Move into the deepest, innermost concentric circles of awareness by breathing. Calm and set yourself into an alpha state.
– When you at the place of meditative suspension, visualize a revolving door.
– It is a door which is exclusive for you, and its propulsion is prompted by the God Janus, your guide in this meditation.
– Pay close attention to this revolving door. Note the reflective glass and the shimmery brass – work of the doorframe. Then, take stock of all the intricate details of your vision.
– In this free-fall of meditative bliss, reach out your hand and give your revolving door a spin.
– As the door is turning round and round, the glass spinning off shards of luminous light with each revolution. The metal framework becomes hypnotized by each revolution of this January door of potential.
– Hold a clear intention in your consciousness to either see clarity into your future or to gain perspective from your past. Keep this intention clear. You will continue to become mesmerized by the rotations of your door.
– Now, your revolving door will start slowing its spinning. You will start seeing one glass pane stand still in the center of your vision.
– Then, lightly contemplate the imagery dancing within the glass of the door. Or, maybe your revolving door is wooden. Just see if you can discern images within the wood grain of your door. After that, look on with wonder at each detail within and around the door which has stopped at the center of your view.
– Take notes about your visions once you have surfaced out of your meditation.
Consult your notesthroughout the days ahead.

Some other highlights for the meaning and symbolism of January

Garnet:

  


Garnet is a semi-precious stone which has energies that

govern the month of January. The term comes from the Latin word garnatus that means “seed-like.”  The month of January is about sowing seeds, such as ideas, goals, resolutions, etc. and nurturing them throughout the year.  That kind of stone can be in a lot of different colors. But the one that is the most commonly admired in bright sanguine, crimsons and cheerful reds. This is

also a correlation. January sparks of a procession of increasing light. With each day passing after the winter solstice, we start to see the light on the sun lighter longer in our views.
