Is the holiday season giving you the blues? We've got two months 'til Valentine's Day but December does have a way of amping up one's loneliness, what with the holiday parties, flurry of weddings (Manila's busiest time of year!), gift-giving, and reunions filling up your social calendar. If you've been feeling a little forlorn, as the 5 o Pentacles suggests, there are intentions you can set for yourself this moon cycle to help pull you out of the holiday gloom.

Get cozy. Pull up a glass of wine or hot cocoa, curl up with your journal, and consider these following prompts.

  • Is there anything you actually like about being on my own this time of year — or any time of year for that matter? 
  • What kind of love would you like to manifest and create? Romantic? Self-love? The kind of companionship you can only get from a true blue best friend? The unfaltering attention from a new pet?
  • Dream up your ideal partnership. If you're pressed for time, pick the relationship you're gunning for (from the aforementioned question) and list 10 reasons why this partner would be great for you. If you have time to ruminate, list 5 pro's for every relationship you'd like to see love bloom in (platonic, romantic, familial, etc.). 
  • Do something for yourself that embodies self-love. How can you best soothe yourself?
