9th Feb ’13 ~~~:> Waving ‘goodbye’ to the wonderful Water Dragon (not to be seen again for another 60 years), whose authentic presence reminded us of the power of our own innate goodness, before the Year of the female Black Water Snake comes in tomorrow, 10th Feb, with the New Moon at 21Aquarius at 7:20amGMT (2:20amEST). This Snake year bestows the ability to renew through transforming and healing deeply wounded (collective) emotions with intuitive and insightful feminine wisdom.
To add hope, faith
and strength, in the Tibetan system of a sixty-year cycle this year of
the Black Water Snake is called 'Namgyal', meaning 'Totally Victorious'.
At this new moon we also celebrate and commence Buddha's 15 days of
miracles (siddhis), culminating on the 25th February with the full Moon,
when karma is multiplied x 100,00,00.
From the planet’s point
of view, throughout 2013 the influential Uranus Pluto square urges us to
maintain our sights upon the light and keep our altruistic intention,
for all beings to be happy, in sharp focus. Even if/when ploughing
through darker moments in the midst of transformation, be our problems
physical, psychological, or spiritual, we can still be like the sacred
lotus in the lily pond: stable in our depth, yet not adhering to the
muddy waters associated with afflicted emotions, therefore able to be in
our experiential flow to stretch-up through the dense materialistic
dross, to rise up and reach the light, and bathe in the beauty of the
heavenly scented blossom of enlightenment_/♥\_
Happy 'Losar' Tibetan New Year 2140 on Feb 11th _/♥\_
And to Hindu friends, especially at this time of the Khumb Mela festival, wishing many blessings for Shivratri _/♥\_
Thx to unknown, for image of Buddha in Lotus pond _/♥\_
