What has slithered in
Yes, there is a winding, curving, moving entity coming our way. This being is not the traditional body of water you are probably thinking of. The lasting loops coming our way is that of the Water Snake year as it will be delivered to us all on Sunday, February 10, 2013. The sixth in the sign of the Chinese Zodiac, many great things are burgeoning.
The Serpent's blessings
The Snake (in the element of Water this time) will be a good time to get our finances in order, begin to really research endeavors that interest us and lastly make sure we find a safe space from which we can turn our greatest wishes into beaming realities. Intuition, transmutation, and protection are forces that we will be able to capture this year.
The Age Aquarian
Because all of this happens when the Moon is in the sign of Aquarius, we must always remember our inner humanitarian, who will be our moral compass, our guiding light, our best friend to the end. Often associated with New Age endeavors, commit this Lunar New Year to usher in your own personal Age that is New. New in the sense that we can be brand new. We can reach for our greatest selves and re-imagine, rejuvenate, and re-make the person we are. We've got the next 13 moons to do it.
The entire cycle is for me
My purpose this Lunar New Year drives me towards a wholistic approach to transmutation. Although I've attained it before I have struggled to maintain that deep understanding of life-death-rebirth. Sometimes I just hold to the death and elongate the rebirth. No more, I do have the power to change this reality and I am choosing just that. For me the Water Snake will nourish me and strengthen me see the necessary steps on the trinity of creation, that being life-death-rebirth.
