“Best wishes for the Year of the Horse” 

Year of the Horse

The water snake is out, the wooden horse is in.

The Chinese Lunar New Year has just passed and whether you follow astrology or not, it’s always nice to have a little reset, especially if you have lost some of the new years’ momentum.

What? I’m starting my new year now!

Susan Levitt says the Wood Horse year is “a time of fast victories, unexpected adventure, and surprising romance. It is an excellent year for travel, and the more far away and off the beaten path the better.”

NBC News consulted with Feng Shui master, Chen Shuaifu, the 61-year old chairman of the Chinese Feng Shui Association.

He says Sheep, Tigers and Dogs will have a good year. As a Rooster, I’m supposed to enjoy “excellent luck” this year. Works for me!

For all zodiac signs, Chen says 2014 should be the year to travel: “Horses are legendary for their ability to run long distances on great journeys,” he says.

Chen urges those born in the Year of the Horse to be especially mindful of your eyes and hearts this year.

So if your start to the year has been sluggish, get on board! Start again! Plan some travel!

It’s never too late…

Fresh starts

10 May

Did you see it this morning?

There was an annular eclipse, when the moon passed across the sun.

Not a bad way to wake up!

It coincided with a new moon, which is representative of a new start.

Now, I love a bit of “woo woo” but astrology sometimes makes me raise a very skeptical eyebrow. However, a very real, very grounded, lovely friend of mine wrote an update that really spoke to me.

Meaghan (doesn’t she have a great name?!) possesses that rare ability to talk about “cosmic” stuff in a regular person way.

Hope you enjoy her ideas as much as I do!

“Many say the Taurus Sun Eclipse and New Moon is the start of a new cycle and the end of an old one. It’s a chance to let go of what is not working in your life, especially in terms of your feminine self,  i.e. the part of you that dreams, intuits, creates, romances, nurtures, reflects…
It doesn’t really matter if you “believe in astrology” here or not; what’s important is that ritual is useful. It’s our intention and focus that creates life mastery.
So you can use the imagery of an eclipse and moon consciously without necessarily handing your power over to a “cosmic event” and still reap big benefits.

Changing our attitude affects our actions, which changes our lives.

Use this as an opportunity: Light a candle, have a bath, write down some wishes, affirmations. Ask yourself. “what can I let go?”
This will sharpen your mind and polish your to-do list, and bring some magic starlight into your  soul to ready it for change.”

You can find more of Meaghan’s lovely ideas and courses on her website.

 Have a beautiful weekend with many delicious beginnings!
