New Years Enchantment: Welcoming the Magic of 2024

New Years Enchantment: Welcoming the Magic of 2024

Cheers to an Enchanted 2024!

As the embers of 2023 fade, a potent energy crackles in the air. It’s a feeling of anticipation, a promise of fresh beginnings, and a whisper of something truly magical waiting to unfold. At the Enchanted Hearth, we love the chance to embrace the magic of new beginnings. Forget resolutions; this year, we’re embracing the transformative power of dreams, desires, and intentions.

Embrace the Yearning

Close your eyes. Feel the warmth of the enchanted hearth ignite within you. What whispers does your soul send forth? What yearnings dance in the shadows of your dreams? Perhaps you long to awaken the artist within. Maybe your heart yearns for more community, or the courage to embark on that long-awaited adventure.

Write these out in your journal. Is there a word, a sentence, or a phrase that envelopes your desires for the new year? Go ahead and scroll it somewhere on the page to bring it to life. 

One powerful year, my word was integrity, and it was about living my life as my truest self. Another year, it was synchronicity, and I watched with wonder as things lined up in my life. This year, my word is move, and it is an umbrella word to embrace that I will be dancing more, singing more, and stepping outside even if I don’t think I feel like it… letting the energy of life move through my body and into the world.

Weaving Spells of Magic

This year, let’s be the weavers of our own destinies. Gather the herbs of intention, the twigs of courage, and the stones of resilience. Build a pyre of passion and watch as your doubts and fears burn away in the cleansing flames. 

Magical Herbs, Twigs, and Stones for New Year’s Spells:


  • Bay Leaf: Write your desires on a bay leaf and burn it at midnight to release them into the new year.
  • Chamomile: Brew chamomile tea for a calming ritual to welcome the year with peace and clarity.
  • Cinnamon: Sprinkle cinnamon powder on your doorstep to attract prosperity and abundance.
  • Lavender: Carry a sachet of lavender to promote calm and good fortune in the coming year.

  • Rosemary: Burn a bundle of rosemary, or a rosemary incense to stimulate memory and focus, aiding in setting and achieving goals.


  • Birch: Carry a birch twig for protection and new beginnings.
  • Cedar: Burn cedar incense for purification and spiritual cleansing.
  • Hazel: Hold a hazel branch to enhance creativity and attract inspiration in the new year.
  • Oak: Place an acorn under your pillow for good luck and strength in the coming year.
  • Willow: Tie willow branches together to create a wishing ring, whispering your desires as you do.


  • Amethyst: Hold an amethyst crystal to promote balance, peace, and protection in the new year.
  • Citrine: Carry citrine for abundance, optimism, and manifestation of your goals.
  • Garnet: Wear a garnet stone for grounding, passion, and vitality.
  • Moonstone: Place a moonstone on your windowsill to attract new beginnings and intuition.

  • First of all – Thank you!!! I’m the lady who walks around my home – a single story apartment community in a busy city, next to a Southern California freeway – who picks up dead bees , waves at crows as they fly over and hugs my favorite tree. You finding me at the very beginning of this journey is meant to be. Thank you. I need you and will always be a positive presence. My word last year was Mindfulness. I’m living mindfully daily, with gratitude. I try to be impeccable with my words and my arms are open for you.

    • This makes me so happy to hear! Welcome! I’m excited to have a new friend on this journey!
      I apologize my response is delayed, I am still learning my way around the technical side of things here, and somehow missed I had a comment! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful full wolf moon, and look forward to when we chat again!
