2014 Year of the Green Wood Horse

“When god created the horse, he said to the magnificent creature: I have made thee as no other. All the treasures of the earth lie between thy eyes. Thy shalt carry my friends upon thy back. Thy saddle shall be the seat of prayers to me. And thou shalt fly without wings, and conquer without sword; oh horse.” ~ Anonymous

2014’s second New Moon SuperMoon on the 30th of January is at 11Aquarius 21:38GMT, (16:39EST) heralding the Chinese New Year of the Green Wood Horse. (Losar, Tibetan New Year, is 2nd March, when the Sun is in Pisces). As a Super New Moon, when the Moon is perigee (closest) Earth, tidal floods (and winds, as Aquarius is an ‘Air’ sign) are higher than usual. This also means emotions are likely to be heightened, and thoughts intense and wilder, making this a rather strong start to an exciting lunation (lunar cycle) that already promises to gallop into action to stimulate growth, especially in the spheres of friendship, heroic group activities, technology, and individual brilliance. Note that ‘Spring Tides’ occur approximately three days after a New Moon.

This affable Green Wood Horse is yang in nature and a symbol of stamina and strength with great social skills, as well as a powerful and boldly innocent fearlessness when starting new projects. Associated with new shoots and the season of spring, the colour green connects to ‘Air’ which is moving and growing, intellectual and questioning. Wood is grounded, stable and solid in the Earth (base chakra), able to reach up towards the heavenly light, to shoot the breeze with youthful enthusiasm to express and quickly create (activating the throat chakra).

Tibet’s WindHorse even conveys great good fortune to all four corners of the Cardinal Cross, and is often shown in prayer flags that flutter in the wind carrying prayers, hopes and wishes, with the blessings of the three jewels: Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.

This New SuperMoon also coincides with the direct motion of planet Venus. After 40 days and nights of retrograde motion, the Goddess of Love will go forward at 13Capricorn, on the 31st, completing the year of the snake’s transformational process of self-perceptin – all the while supporting both Wood Horse Year (celebrated on the 31st, just after the new Moon) and the Celtic Imbolc, or Candlemas, when signs of light (returning to the North) help to renew conviction and faith.

Wishing everyone a very happy and loving year of the Green Wood Horse _/\_ Special thanks to tsakli.org for the beautiful Tibetan Windhorse _/\_

Sun in Aquarius ~ ☉♒□☽♏ ~ Last Quarter Moon in Scorpio - Jan 2014

Coming to the end of the year of the Black Water Snake - a year of profound insight and powerful emotions - tonight's Last Quarter Moon presents the opportunity to transform during ‘a crisis of conscience’ (because this is a time when principles are called into focus). Now is therefore time to clear and prepare for the oncoming and exciting Aquarian New Moon and the New Chinese Year of the Green Wood Horse Thursday the 30th January. (Note this year that Losar, Tibetan New Year, is a month later, March 2nd). The energy surrounding the Wood Horse is markedly different to the water bound Snake; the Horse is dynamic, quick and active, willing to shoot the breeze and grow and move in exciting places and spaces. So best be prepared to ride the new WindHorse-power. Remove hindrance and overcome obstacles by being cooperative and concentrated (even with self), utilising the clarity of the altruistic and friendly Aquarian Sun, in combination with the insightful (and often secretive) magnetic Scorpio Moon.

This arrangement of Sun and Moon tends to give the Spiritual Warrior shamanic healing abilities, by testing the ability to remain emotionally detached - yet profoundly engaged in the process of healing issues of trust, abuse and power. The challenge is to use such perceptive awareness wisely, so that all beings are happy.

Venus the Love Goddess ~> ♥ Jan 2014 ♥

BEAUTY & LOVE & Sacred Geometry abound everywhere ~> & Within her CosmiC Five pointed STAR dance, planet Venus has now changed from being an evening star to a morning star; for those with an easterly horizon look out to see Venus before Sunrise.

Affectionate and light giving, Venus as the rosy morning star is associated with the Goddess of LOVE, Aphrodite. Venus is still retrograde, though, going forward in the accomplished Capricorn at the fixed spring Fire Festival, Candlemas/Imbolc, Jan 30-31-1st, when the Goddess will be celebrating poetry, healing, craft and smiths. ૐ•~☆♥´¯`•.¸¸.•L❀VE•´¯`•.¸¸. _/\_

✫☽~♥~☉✫ Full Moon in Cancer January 15/16th ✫☽~♥~☉✫

Like a Mother looking after her child, the Moon at home in Cancer provides a place of homely protection, the sanctuary from chaos, and an anchor in rough seas. And the key to the Cancer Moon’s ability awaken the Divine Mother (within each of us) to show care and consideration is love, unconditional and pure.

This Cancer Full Moon, (sandwiched between two New SuperMoons) is exact Wednesday 15th/Thursday 16th at 4:52GMT, accenting professional guidance and practical care for next of kin, as well as friends and the global family. Reflecting the Spirit of the life-giving Sun in accomplished Capricorn (conjunct retrograde Venus), the growing-to-full Cancer Moon conjuncts generous Jupiter, revealing opportunities and helpful, available resources, emotional or solid, that feed and nurture growth and positivity.

With the actual Full Moon, however, there’s a tougher, almost wrathful feminine force at work. Conducting dark energy scored from the Moon’s trajectory around Earth, and determined to protect Earthly treasures (elements water and Earth), Black Moon Lilith heralds from the Divine Mother’s womb as the wisdom Dakini to conjunct this Cancer Full Moon. Black Moon Lilith is the wild part of our self that is fearless when entering the void to embrace bliss. For this is the power of the Divine Feminine who understands the alchemical transformational of Kundalini snake medicine, and whose heightened sense of enlightened awareness galvanises the participation of solving and resolving all the emotional and worldly problems in Samsara’s sea of suffering, as a means of caring and healing and cutting down haughty ego. This, then, is no ordinary Full Moon: it’s a Full Moon with the potential to awaken and illuminate the (collective) subconscious and transform into action.

✫☽☉~♥~☉☾✫~ HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 ~✫☽☉~♥~☉☾✫

 
The start of this brand New Year is deliciously unique with a New Capricorn SuperMoon at 11:14GMT. This is a potent beginning for 2014, with Earth closest the Sun, and Moon closest the Earth, the magnetic pull between heaven and Earth is positively tidal. Thus the celestial energies at the beginning of 2014 are close, deep, and powerfully compelling!

And now Solar Poles have aligned, we also have the potential to be aligned in thought, word and deed. Being well and truly centred in the New Year’s sturdy Capricorn earthiness means we are able to utilise skilful means when faced with obstacles. Bear in mind that while we have this glorious start with a SuperMoon, it’s not the only rare marker for 2014, due to the year’s cosmic signature coming into focus right from day 1, with a ‘Cardinal Cross of the Central Spiritual Sun’ bringing Divinity, spiritual awareness and the altruistic intention to the fore, right from the start.

Such a start to our collective beginning is rare and I will write more about this unusual Grand Cross, but for now I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR, and let you know the planets in this exceptional cross formation are active and dynamic, generating movement and self-motivated change. Growth for the Spiritual Warrior comes from developing loving kindness and bodhicitta with a balanced heart-mind, aware of personal karmic responsibility; and therein lies the challenge.

May 2014 be auspicious for all beings!

Astro note: This is the first of two SuperMoons, both in January, as the Chinese Year of the Wood Horse follows one lunation later, at the end of the month on the 30th (note Tibetan New Year, Losar, is on March 2). _/\_

Best wishes to you all!
with LoveLight _/\_

30th December ☼ SOLAR ALIGNMENT ☼ _/\_


Brilliant news for the start of 2014: NASA announced Sun's North & South poles have aligned! So now we begin a new 11-year Solar-flare sun-spot cycle. The Sun is the heart of the Solar system; in our horoscopes its our identity, our central spirit, thus we are Solar humans, made of light! And a pole-flip happening at the time of an applying New SUPERMOON, which will take place the day after tomorrow, on New Year's Day (meaning the Moon is nearest Earth), and that the Capricorn Sun will also be perihelion (closest) to Earth on January 3rd/4th, only emphasizes our spirit/soul connection to Helios' heart. Astrologically speaking, this is also a perfect example of how applying aspects are so much more powerful than separating aspects. From the esoteric viewpoint it perfectly illustrates how Capricorn is the natural Solar high point, radiating at mid-heaven as the gate of initiation, a rite of passage one passes through in order for Spirit Sun to realistically unite heart-mind and body.

I find today's polar alignment extremely encouraging, as it also means we can now more easily bring Heaven to Earth, to illuminate consciousness and overcome animal instincts, and remove obscuration and blocks within our own central channel, able to heal and rest unhindered at peace in our own sacred Solar heart - What a great way to see in the New Year, with the centre of the Solar system in perfect Love-Light alignment! A most auspicious start to 2014! _/\_ ☼
