Gong Xi Fat Cai!
Can you feel the shift? I can! The shift to the year of the Yang Wood Horse is happening right now; I feel the mood of optimism and inspiration! If you open to it, you will be propelled, led by the reins, if you will, into purposeful action. We are leaving behind two years of introspection and, for some, depression, into a year of illumination, promise and vision.
The past two years have been Water years: 2012 was Yang Water Dragon and 2013 was Yin Water Snake, whereby degenerative forces were at work. I felt it personally, like my feet were mired in mud. Even normal work projects would continually stall, and my office was awash in this and that on hold, a chaotic mess! In water there is often dissolution and emotional upheaval. When you try to hold onto certainty and solidity in Water years, you suffer more, as chaos and formlessness are key to Water.
Soul-searching is not an uncommon hallmark of a Water year. My baby brother’s death and a revelation about family lead me down a path of introspection.
Yang, on the other hand, is about green growth! I can feel this shift like no other in my lifetime!
Horse symbolizes freedom and following the heart and senses. This is a year to burst forth for creatives, and to follow your heart and intuition toward a life of meaning and fulfillment. Yang Horse’s message is to follow your heart’s desire, using your mind to support the heart’s yearning for success in your endeavors.
Hold onto the mane and ride the horse fearlessly!
