The YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON, 2012-13

THE YEAR OF
THE WATER DRAGON

23 January 2012
to
10 February 2013

We collectively celebrate the Chinese New Year on 23 January 2012: The Year of the Dragon/Water Year. The Chinese Zodiac can lend anyone insight into their personality and natural tendencies, like our Western Zodiac can provide. Our friends in the West take their Zodiac and divide it into 12 signs as does Western Astrology, yet one animal sign influences an entire year verses one month.The intricate link in understanding the common ground of these two systems is the transits of Jupiter, which take approximately one year to transit through one Zodiac sign in the West. Here in the West it only takes that same years’ time to represent all 12 signs on our Zodiac wheel, while our friends in the East take 60 years to complete a full cycle, as each animal every 12 years is depicted through 5 different elemental years of earth, metal, water, wood, and fire.

Thinking big and promoting optimism will be rewarded in 2012, as the collective can expect this to be a time of dramatic flare, spectacular events, and an auspicious year to begin anything anew within. The energy of being bold and daring is favored to stimulate fortunate outcomes in new adventures of any kind, from business to marriage. The most outlandish, eccentric, original and different ideas will be rewarded as the months within 2012 unfold.

Now the collective experiences the 5th year within a 9 and 12-year cycle, where the seeds planted in 2008 are seeing some true blossoming and complete currents of change to eventually reap a harvest, just a couple more years further down the road. With Mercury guiding the singular 5’s energy over 2012, there is plenty of movement, risk-taking, versatility and communication to be found amongst the Dragons’ urges for the magnificent. 2012 marks the time where never seen before ideas will bring the masses together in a more unified understanding of who we are as part of the wholeness of humanity.

Grasping some true Lexigram wisdom when embracing the MAGNIFICENT plays a important role in what 2012 can hold for anyone, as we poetically phrase the anagrams we can derive from it. What joy can be found when I AM IN A FINE MAGIC GAIN IN A MAIN TIME TEAM. Or realizing I AM A ENIGMA MAGNET, INFECTING AN INFINITE ENTICING AGE. If we are to adapt smoothly to what exciting and irresistible energy the Dragon is here to share with us -especially within the added intuition of the Water Year- we are best to hone in upon our own sense of psychic ability when it comes to quick change within our lives to find our necessary answers.

All is set to come alive in our outside world and community life in a Water Dragon Year as we allow our diplomacy, compassion and idealism to tackle social situations requiring resolve. The Dragon asks that we awaken a visionary, intelligent and scrupulous instinct within ourselves. Once more under the Water influenced year, being the eye of any apparent storm is key to knowing how to handle a Dragon’s natural excessive energies. With the Dragon representing Yang Wood energy, what transpires over the year ahead brings forth profound success or failure, depending upon the genuine intention behind initiations.

The Dragon is the only Chinese animal that is from myth upon their Zodiac Wheel. However, they firmly believe that this symbol is the most powerful of all, and when one is born in a Dragon year, there is much fortune, money and luck to be found all along the life. Even in the midst of mistakes along the way, Dragons are well known to always still come out of the most pressing situations still smiling. So chin up to any 2012 gloom and doomers: while it is best to be prepared for adventurous change, wearing a SMILE will most certainly go for MILES in this Dragon Year ahead.

DID YOU KNOW??? DRAGON TRIVIA

*They are a Dragon!
When you see an enthusiastic, successful, persuasive and strong spirit that eagerly shows that life is to be savored by living every day as if it where your very last.

*The Typical Dragon
IS frank, at times demanding, enjoys starting things they may not always finish, makes their home wherever they are, excels at problem solving, exudes self-confidence, prefers to take it as it comes verses a routine, possesses an innate sincerity, dislikes waiting for anything, avoids feeling dissatisfied and discontented.

*Dragons & Yang Wood Energy
The external masculine represents the leading role and gravitates to activity, sociability, passion and efficiency. The symbol of wood allows for an ambivalent and dual nature to emerge. The energy of the Dragon can become unbalanced when strong emotions overtake them- turning kindness to anger, and their natural exuberance to vulnerability.

*DRAGON YEARS in History
The Dragon’s energy marks a universal time for renewal and growth within what already exists. Dreams are motivated to become reality for any new venture from a business to marriage, and seemingly, the more outlandish it may be, the greater outcome for success it will have.

1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, all saw large-scale changes within these areas on a global level, as will 2012, as along as intuition is carefully listened to with the Water energy guiding this particular year. As the months ahead pass, look for financial situations to stabilize and find simpler, grounding means to display true value through mid-year as Jupiter finishes up in Taurus. Once Jupiter enters Gemini, get ready for an explosion in the communication industries, optimism to return to the publishing world, education, fashion, the performing arts, and prosperity to ignite moral ideas that continue to truly evolve humanity.

CHINESE ZODIAC FUN FACTS
*The Chinese New Year is always celebrated upon an Aquarian New Moon here in the West.

*Legend has it how the Chinese Zodiac Wheel order formed is that the Rat hitched a ride on the Ox who didn’t originally intend to become the second animal in line, when Buddha challenged the animals to a race to win a position on the Chinese Zodiac calendar. The least competitive of all the animals (the dog enjoyed a bath along the way, while the pig decided to make sure he was full and even napped) fell into place to complete the 12 Animal Wheel.

*At the ages of 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 82, 94, 106, typically one experiences a very positive year as their animal returns. Coinciding with West’s planet of luck, Jupiter, returns to its’ natal point also every 12 yrs.

*At 60, the Chinese believe one’s greatest wisdom begins to unfold as one full cycle of their wheel concludes. Simultaneously in the West, the 2nd Saturn Return, in agreement with this passage also marks the soul being released into the finest period of self -expression and inner power after learning our most important life’s lessons over the previous 59.

The YEAR OF THE METAL RABBIT, 2011-12

THE YEAR
OF THE METAL RABBIT


03 February 2011
to
23 January 2012

We collectively celebrate the Chinese New Year on 03 February 2011: The Year of the Rabbit/Metal Year. The Chinese Zodiac can lend anyone insight into their personality and natural tendencies, like our Western Zodiac can provide. Our friends in the West take their Zodiac and divide it into 12 signs as does Western Astrology, yet one animal sign influences an entire year verses one month.

The intricate link in understanding the common ground of these two systems is the transits of Jupiter, which take approximately one year to transit through one Zodiac sign in the West. Here in the West it only takes that same years’ time to represent all 12 signs on our Zodiac wheel, while our friends in the East take 60 years to complete a full cycle, as each animal every 12 years is depicted through 5 different elemental years of earth, metal, water, wood, and fire.

Diplomacy and agreement will be rewarded in 2011, as the collective can expect this to be a time of peace, settlement, sensitivity, and one where attention paid to home and family is fortunate. The energy of comparison to stimulate agreements and conciliatory measures encompasses the political landscape. Advances within the medical field, welfare reform, and the arts all take center stage as the months within 2011 unfolds.

Now the collective experiences the 4th year within a 9 and 12-year cycle, where the seeds planted in 2008 are still in their incubation to eventually reap a harvest further down the road. With Uranus guiding the singular 4’s energy over 2011, there is originality, restructuring, and innovations to be found amongst the Rabbits urges for peace. 2011 marks the time when revolutionary ideas that are accompanied with a non-violent approach will bring us to a deeper understanding of the very world we all live in.

Grasping the true wisdom behind REVOLUTION plays a wise role in securing the future. At last a real one can now begins as this word calls to us to ponder: LET LOVE RULE NOT EVIL. For when we UNTIE IT IN A TRUE LOVE ROUTINE, we will all surely adapt smoothly to what virtue and refined energy of the Rabbit -especially within the added strength of the Metal Year- ultimately requests of us all.

All is set to the cozy lairs of our home environments and family life in a Metal Rabbit Year as we allow our sensitivity to co-operate. The Rabbit asks that we awaken a fertile and mothering instinct within ourselves. Once more under the Metal influenced year, these qualities are intensified and yearn to be strengthened all the more. With the Rabbit representing Yin Wood energy, what transpires over the year ahead brings forth longevity from the actions instilled.

As the Moon is closely connected to the Chinese understanding of the Rabbit, there is a great deal of mystery and intuition marking the energies we have access to. The choices of discreet, principled, refined, and honorable decisions are intelligent and respected ones within a Metal Rabbit Year.

DID YOU KNOW??? RABBIT TRIVA:

*YOU ARE IN the company of a Rabbit when you see a peaceful, practical, articulate, and perceptive spirit that happily shows that life is to be savored by enjoying the quieter things in simplicity.

*THE TYPICAL RABBIT is diplomatic, at times unpredictable/timid, enjoys conversation, makes their surroundings comfortable, pays attention to detail, enjoys routine, prefers entertaining at home verse going out, possesses an intense love for the family, dislikes arguments and avoids unpleasantness.

*RABBITS ARE Yin Wood energy, where the internal feminine represents the nurturing role and gravitating to reflection, privacy, and comforts. The symbol of wood allows for an flexible nature to emerge. The energy of the Rabbit can become unbalanced when irritable and confused under sudden changes and unforeseen events.

*RABBIT YEARS in history mark a time for balancing and opportunities to unfold for advancements within the arts, medical fields and our domesticated lives. 1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1962, 1975, 1987, 1999, all saw large-scale changes within these areas on a global level, as will 2011, being all the more intensified and strengthened by the Metal energy guiding this particular year. As the months ahead pass, we will be called to engage our sympathy, understanding, and nurturing more and more as situations requiring comforts prevail.

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! BE… Fearless!

The YEAR OF THE METAL TIGER
14 February 2010 to 02 February 2011

We collectively celebrate the Chinese New Year on February 14th, 2010: The Year of the Tiger/Metal Year. Like the Western Zodiac, the Chinese Zodiac can lend anyone insight into their personality and natural tendencies. Similarly, the Chinese Zodiac divides itself into 12 signs as does Western Astrology, with one animal sign influencing an entire year. Here in the West it only takes that same years’ time to represent all 12 signs on our Zodiac wheel, while our friends in the East take 60 years to complete a full cycle, as each animal is depicted through 5 different elemental years.

Bravery and adaptation will be rewarded in 2010, as the collective can expect this to be a time of upheaval, invention, action, and one where the unexpected should be expected. From the weather to politics and finances- everyone seems to be wearing a different hat and is quite in flux. You may have heard we are in for a turbulent year, yet even this is a choice. It all boils down to how you choose to accept the changes that are about to unfold- your response or reaction will determine what your level of discomfort may be.

Now the collective experiences the 3rd year within a 9 and 12-year cycle, where the seeds planted in 2008 are still in their incubation to eventually reap a harvest further down the road. With Jupiter guiding the singular 3’s energy over 2010, there is optimism, idealism, and a re-education to be found amongst the Tiger’s swift changes. The 2010 Year ahead marks the time when new and daring ideas brought into will play a wise role in securing the future.

All is set to the stage of drama, tension, and excitement in a Metal Tiger Year as we allow these necessary changes to come forth, as difficult as some of them may seem. Even though we are amidst a current cycle of not so happy financial times on multitudes of levels- remember the alterations we see are part of a much larger Universal picture. With the Tiger representing Yang Wood energy, we are offered opportunities to find rewards in protecting what is right, all in the fight for justice to prevail. Ideas with originality and prophecy that honor a new order are welcomed. Any dealings which embody fair and honest assessments for the benefit of all mankind flourish in the quick pulse and vibrancy of a Metal Tiger Year.
