Gratitude is the attitude that pervades the internet these days. I see so many people waking up to what joy and honesty can do for our lives. Today I am thankful that 2013 is in the past, and am more than grateful that today is today – and 2014 is going to bring some dynamic experiences!
On January 1st I had an amazing interview with Michael O’Connor of SunStarAstrology.com. He brought his wisdom and expertise about the coming year for the sun signs and shed some light on how we can end the year of the Snake and bring in the Year of the Horse with awareness and readiness.
It seemed important to share the Note from my Facebook page:
The month of January is our opportunity to shed the last of the Year of the Snake’s skin. If you have been looking to release and let go of old patterns that you have become aware of, then now is the time to finally accept and integrate them so they are no longer your shadow.
No wonder we all went through challenges in 2013!! Now we know how life goes with a Snake year. We needed to prepare ourselves for the coming of the Wood Horse!
The Horse year begins January 31st. It will be the 4711th year in the Chinese calendar. Hmmmmm….Interesting indeed, especially from a numerology perspective.
The theme of the horse year is “Saddle Up”. For those who are horse riders, we know it means preparing for the ride, getting mentally grounded and ensuring things are tied down. The first half of the year will be a time for patience and preparation and some action. It’s like when a horse starts off on a run it has to plant it’s hooves firmly on the ground and dig deep to gain momentum. So too is the first part of our year. Some say that a ‘Wood’ year is about work, or war, or both – and it means that things happen quickly, whether positive or negative. So being awake and conscientious is critical.
The second half will be more action oriented and fast. As when a horse begins to gain speed and the ride smoothes out but you still need to be in control and aware of your surroundings, hang on to the reins and steer – lest the horse gets spooked or decides to stop dead and you get thrown!
Your focus and constant discipline this year will be key. If you are a leader you will be called to lead. If you are a speaker, you will speak. As a teacher, it is time to teach. And of course being in service to our selves and in turn others is the call. Working together, listening more deeply, following your heart and being completely honest with WHO YOU ARE and what YOU choose – these are all themes to watch for, and there will be more.
YeeHaaaa! Get ready for the ride!
