How January Got Its Name
Hello everyone, hope you all have great day. This winter has been very icy here, we are really getting hit hard with ice on the east coast. Today we are going to tell you how January got its name.
The name given to the month of January is actually derived from the ancient Roman god, Janus ,who is thought to have presided over the dawning of each new year. He was often referred to as the ‘God of Gateways’ or ‘God of Doorways.’
He is also known as the ‘Lord of Beginnings’, and is associated with the Goddess of birthing new babes, Juno. Janus is the original Two Face, as his image is often symbolized by a face that looks both backwards and forward at the same time: a reminder that this is a good time to reflect on the events of the previous year. It is also important to do so while recognizing the proverbial clean slate of opportunity that waits immediately ahead.
This is a great day to look at your own formal front doorway, and make some lucky little upgrades. If at all possible, paint that front door red, to usher in fortune and fabulous luck or green, to grow health and happiness and prosperity galore. If you can’t or don’t want to paint the front door, at least give it a thorough cleaning, and maybe save the fresh coat for another chilly winter day. Remember, the front door calls in most of the subtle energies that enter your house, as well as has an influence and impact on your opportunities and your income.
So, be sure it is in very good working condition. In the case of your front door, the words ‘open wide’ promise to put a really big smile on your face!
