This is a big week for Chinese peeps, and for anyone who follows the lunar calendar. Depending on where you live in the world, this Friday/Saturday, 24/25 January 2020, is the Lunar New Year! (Also the New Moon in Aquarius. Hokay.)
New Moons usually mark the beginnings of a new cycle, and are great for fresh starts. However, the intense stellium of heavyweights Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter et al in Capricorn, as well as the New Moon’s square with Uranus (planetary ruler of change and innovation), lend this New Moon a weighty karmic energy.
Many of you have unfinished business – get closure if you can. If you can’t, be patient and allow the karmic conditions to ripen before you move on. Also, watch out for sudden crises and people behaving oddly; on your part, stay calm, balanced, and grounded as much as possible.
My fellow Chinese darlings and everyone celebrating the Lunar New Year! This year is the Year of the Metal Rat. The Rat is the first animal in the Chinese zodiac, and corresponds to Aries in that they both represent the beginning of a new cycle.
People born in the year of the Rat are usually clever, quick thinkers with great potential to succeed in business; however, they are not overly ambitious and prefer to live peaceful lives with family and loved ones. The shadow aspect of the Rat includes anxious tendencies, distrust of others, manipulative qualities, and a generally skittish disposition.
This being a year where Metal is the ruling element, watch out for conflict (this Chinese zodiac element corresponds to the Suit of Swords in the Tarot). You’ll do well to employ a rational, calm, logical approach to matters. Technological advances this year should be interesting to watch. New small/medium business ventures and start-ups – particularly those with an online presence – are likely to do well when begun under the auspices of the Metal Rat.
Onward to the reading!
LEFT: SEVEN OF WANDS REVERSED. The appearance of this card as the first in the spread, and therefore a theme of sorts, reminds us that no man is an island. When the reversed Seven of Wands shows up for us, we are advised to reach out and either offer, or receive, assistance to one another. The collective benefit will best be served this way.
This is also a good time to (re-)connect and network with people, especially those who can help us in the pursuit of our goals. Be open and honest about what you require, and/or how you can help. No need to be shy, and don’t let misplaced pride or ego get in the way. Part of the experience of being human is knowing when to stand on our own two feet, and when to lean on others.
This week – be wise. Reach out.
MIDDLE: THE DEVIL REVERSED. This card also appeared in the previous week’s Tarot reading, indicating that a theme is developing as the energies unfold in a situation you’re facing.
As I mentioned last week, The Devil is one card I prefer to see reversed. This card signifies the possibility of overcoming your obstacles, struggles, and inner demons with relative ease. The reversed Devil is weakened, and its power to intimidate is only an illusion, rather than your reality. That’s very good news! Go forth and conquer – with the right plans and action, your liberation from the reversed Devil’s grip is only a matter of time. In combination with the reversed Seven of Wands, it could be that the solution to defeating the reversed Devil lies in teamwork and/or the intervention of allies.
RIGHT: PAGE OF SWORDS REVERSED. When this chatty and sharp-witted Page appears in the reversed position, hold your tongue. Like the High Priestess who appeared in last week’s reading, the reversed Page of Swords advises you to keep your head down, and your plans/ideas/secrets to yourself.
Some of you could be feeling a little restless or distracted – you’ll need to focus. Avoid lashing out when others around you are acting up; it’s better just to walk away and concentrate your energies on attaining your own goals.
Some of you could be coming into contact with a particularly disagreeable, immature personality who likes to play mind games and insult people. With the Lunar New Year at the end of this week, this could refer to some folks you might bump into during festivities and visits. Keep your cool, and don’t sink to their level.
GODDESS GUAN YIN DIVINATION
LOT NUMBER: 29
Unsheathed, the precious sword is radiant.
Its blade is pristine, untouched by dust or dirt.
A Noble One wields this valuable weapon;
His glory wins the acclaim of all.
(Trans. Tan Kelly)
I’ve always found this divination lot a particularly fascinating one. When this lot appears, the Goddess’s message for you is:
YOUR TIME IS NOW.
You may be planning something new and wonderful – a career shift, a relocation, an engagement or marriage – but perhaps the situational context isn’t perfect, and you’re concerned that the time isn’t right.
I’ll let you in on a secret:
THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT TIMING.
As a Spirit practitioner who engages in divination (the art of foretelling likely future outcomes based on current energies), Divine or pre-destined timing is very, very rare. In my Lightworker career thus far, I’ve been given messages of ‘fixed’ timing only three times or so. All were death dates – not stuff you really want to know – and Spirit only released the information to me only because the families of the soon-to-be deceased had special instructions to comply with.
WHAT’S FAR MORE COMMON AND USEFUL FOR YOU TO KNOW: THAT YOUR CHOICES SHAPE YOUR DESTINY. TAKE ACTION!
This means making good, solid plans, then going ahead with them even if certain circumstances do not appear to be in your favour at the time. It means having the courage to create your destiny with the sincere, wholehearted intention to achieve your dreams and live your best life.
IT MEANS LIVING A BEAUTIFUL LIFE TO THE FULLEST – THE LIFE YOU DESERVE.
In my personal and professional experience, I’ve found that Spirit and the Universe loves it when we pursue our passions with consistency, diligence, and the integrity of a pure spirit. When we prove that we have a goal and we’re never giving up, the Goddess smiles, and lends a hand. She wields you like a precious sword, and your glory in Her hands will win the acclaim of all. This is the beautiful process of co-creation with the Universe that so many people talk about, and that you can experience if you choose.
May you attain your desired outcomes as you set your plan to action, and may Divine Grace bless your heart’s courage as you step up to create – and fulfil – your destiny.
Before I sign off for now:
