13 lunar day is a new starting point, a period of change, innovation, a time to let go of the past. It is an active, very energetic day, symbolized by the Wheel or Uroboros – the Snake swallowing its own tail.
Uroboros is such an old and mysterious symbol that historians can not determine the era and culture in which it was born. This snake means eternity and infinity of being, and also – the cyclicity of all processes in life. Birth and death, creation and destruction. Psychologist Carl Jung used Uroboros to denote the unity of darkness and self-destruction with creativity and fertility; and his followers implied the unity of the conscious and the unconscious, male and female.
13 lunar day reflects the features of Uroboros. It can be both a positive period of the cycle, and tense, full of anger and resentment. The result depends only on whether you will be able to let go of the past and accept the changes with gratitude and inspiration.

13 lunar day – the Wheel of Life
The second symbol of the 13 lunar day introduces a few more shades of meaning. The wheel is a brilliant invention of mankind, which gave a tremendous impetus to our development. In this context, it is a symbol of a new beginning, the start of active growth. The wheel of Samsara, the circle of rebirth, tells us the same thing. Life consists of changes, the end of something is always the beginning of something else.
It is interesting that the most popular tool for personal growth is based on the idea of the wheel. The Wheel of Life will help you set the right goals and start moving towards positive changes on the 13 lunar day.
For this exercise, you will need a pen and paper. Draw a circle symbolizing your life, and divide it into 6-8 sectors: health, business, love, travel, learning… Sectors should be really important to you! Now, evaluate your present life and give the mark to each sector. Connect them on the axes to each other. Here is your Wheel of Life.
The next step is to look at your wheel and identify the sector, the positive changes in which will help improve all other marks. Then, write down your goals for this sector and the first three steps that you will make towards them in the near future. Start to act preferably within 72 hours of drawing the wheel. Thus, you will launch the mechanism of your movement towards a harmonious and happy new life.

Meditation of the day
Sit down in the lotus position, close your eyes and relax. Imagine the Wheel of Time, eternally and inexorably rotating. It translates to us the wisdom of King Solomon: “This too shall pass”. With every turn of the wheel counterclockwise, all unnecessary, bad, and illusory leaves your life. You let go of your past. Do not rush, work on your old grievances, all that burden of the past, which does not allow you to straighten your shoulders. Then, start turning the clock wheel clockwise, open the future. Let it be as it should be; accept changes with gratitude, feel the fresh wind of novelty on your skin. Rotate faster if you are ready for a fast flight to your happiness! 🙂
