Guru Rinpoche New Year! 2015

__/\__ Celebrating the wisdom of the Lama as 2014 draws to a close. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the moon phase five days before a full moon, the Gibbous Moon, is a monthly feast day in honour of our Teacher (Guru or Lama, historical or modern, friend, foe or loved one), who shows us how to live in love, with compassion. With the moon not yet full (Jan4th), Luna’s light is still reflective and bright; and this is considered the monthly optimum expression of joyful and luminous ‘yang’ energy. Both Sun and Moon are always in the same element for Guru Rinpoche day. In today’s case, the initiating Capricorn Sun and an exalted Taurus Moon accent the stabilising Earth element, helping to manifest in the ‘real’ world. A practical Moon in the sign of the Bull moderates Capricorn’s austere ambition, bringing out the SeaGoat Sun’s more spiritual qualities, such as maintaining the stamina and strength to accept personal responsibility and to welcome with an open heart the unerring discipline and practice needed to master skills - talents which are so often wasted without value or encouragement. Now ‘The Lights’ emphasis the wisdom of the (inner) Guru, it bodes well for our intentions, visioning, affirmations and resolutions to materialise for the coming year, 2015.

Happy New Year All!
