As we move towards the end of January, the Chinese New Year is upon us. Unlike the Western calendar that begins anew on January 1 every year, the Chinese New Year falls on January 25. The Chinese zodiac follows a 12-year repeating cycle. Every year one of 12 animals becomes the foremost influential energy for the year ahead, with the 12 animal years always progressing in the same recurrent order. This year of 2020 is the first year in a 12 year cycle and is the year of the metal rat. As we will see, 2020 promises to be a year of new beginnings, business opportunities, and the planting of seeds for the upcoming 12 years.
Quick Background on the Chinese Zodiac
Though there are a few variations, the legend of how the animals became assigned to the twelve years in the cycle continues to be one of the most widely spread tales regarding the zodiac. According to legend, the Jade Emperor decreed that the animals were to be chosen as calendrical signs, challenging that...
On January 10th, 2020 we have a BIG significant astrological alignment taking place.
Many of you are probably already feeling it!
Do you feel like life is speeding up?
Do you feel a little run down?
Are your emotions running hot?
Are you experiencing a lot of uncertainty?
If so, this is GREAT news!
I know how crazy that sounds by the way, but these are all symptoms that TWO things
have recently happened in your life.
Number One: Your Vibration has increased (substantially)... and this is why it feels like life is happening faster than you can manage. You’re revving higher and experience life
faster... and when you adjust (and you always do :)... your life on all levels will have
Number Two: As a result of an increased vibrational frequency... you, by definition, have been inundated with A LOT more “awareness.” That’s right, you’re... suddenly... significantly more conscious than you were, perhaps even yesterday!
THIS can lead to racy...
The Full Moon is a powerful time to tap to come together with the collective with a specific intention. This Full Moon is not for the light-hearted because this is not only a Full Moon (in the emotional sign of Cancer no doubt) but also a Lunar Eclipse!
The Full Moon energy charges the yang or more active energies of the subconscious while the Eclipse energies surface what has been hidden in the darkness. The Full Moon will be in the zodiac sign of Cancer, which is the natural ruler of the Moon. The lunar energies will be particularly strong.
Think of how the Moon is able to control the waters of the ocean through the tides. Water in the elemental kingdom is synonymous to the emotional realm. This time expect to feel like there is an internal magnifying glass on your emotional world! The combination of the Eclipse energies will most likely unearth what needs to be cleansed and healed within you.
Each of the planets closely associated with earth has its energetic associations, astrological pairings, and affiliation with particular deities and astrologers have long studied and followed the movements and patterns of the planets in our solar system to gain insight into the human condition and to predict events and energies in the collective.
Mercury has considered the planet of communication, and many of us are very familiar with the popularly dreaded phenomenon of ‘mercury retrograde.’ This is a planetary event that occurs about three times per year, during which time the planet Mercury moves backward in its standard orbit, seemingly retracing its steps backward through time and space.
Many people and astrologers alike recognize that when Mercury moves in this reverse fashion, the energies under the influence of Mercury shift their normal flow and dynamic. Most commonly, many people report ‘communication breakdown’ both inter-personally and also in...
