2014 - The Year of the Yang Wood Horse
January 30, 2014
This Friday, January 31st, marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year) and y’all better hold on to your hats - it’s gonna be a wild ride!
This year, the year of the Yang Wood Horse, is all about movement - upwards and forwards.
This year of new beginnings will be all about optimism, inspiration, and purposeful action. It will be a welcomed change after our hearts have had to endure a onslaught of deconstruction through two Metal and two Water years, that made us feel “every revelation of corruption in the dark as if it was scouring our subconscious insides and wringing us dry of watery emotion.” Yep, that sounds about right.
Karen Abler Carrasco of the Western School of Feng Shui says that “For most of us, it was an unsettling time of letting go of many things, either voluntarily or forcefully, a time of deep soul searching, with gradual or sudden destabilization in many areas of family and livelihood.”
The time to wade through the murky water is over. Now is the time to listen to your heart and trust your intuition to propel you forward. But don’t be impulsive, use a little common sense and think about the longterm ramifications of your actions.
The clearer you can be about what you want and how you are going to get it, the better.
