HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR!
February 8, 2016 welcomed in the Red Fire Monkey and also the New Moon of Aquarius. The energy of the Red Fire Monkey is not to fool with since it can burn and sting the lethargic and past oriented person. The Chinese Lunar Calendar begins on the day of the "dark new moon" and every twelve years we come under the influence of 12 primates. The domain of the Red Fire Monkey occurs every 60 years, and this is when we can expect more action, adventure and humor. We need to keep our sense of humor since karma takes a front seat and there is no escaping its impact.
The Monkey is the 9th animal in the Chinese Zodiac coinciding with 2016, the 9th universal year (2+0+1+6 = 9). In Chinese Astrology, number 9 is associated with ambition, action, adventure, cleverness and the exercising of free will. It is believed that this is the perfect time to make amends, forgive and surrender the past. Truth is the most important virtue during this time of forgiveness; truth helps manifest our deepest desires. Number 9 is also associated with completion (or death), transformation and violet fire magic. February is a Blue Ray month, a time to express your creativity and talent. The Blue Ray of February and the Red Fire Monkey create violet which is the alchemist's tool. Using the principles of the Violet Ray, we can transmute and transform any dark situation into light. Yes, this is the time we can create "new beginnings" because we are all Violet Ray Alchemists!
How do we begin? First we need to recognize what fear or subconscious block is holding us back from creating a prosperous world. We mentioned earlier that Truth is the virtue that will help lead us out of the darkness into the light. Most of us fear criticism and fear of what other people think. This is because we are our own worst critics. Napoleon Hill puts it the best:
The fear of criticism robs man of his initiative, destroys his power of imagination, limits his individuality, takes away his self-reliance, and does him damage in a hundred other ways.
In other words, this fear prevents us from taking action and expressing our creative spirit. It's a powerful force that can lead us to self-sabotage and self-destruction. Everyday we need to practice:
* Nulling and Voiding our fears through all time, space, dimensions and reality;
* Gratefulness for all that we have, give and receive . . . for all people, situations and objects in our lives.
Practicing heartfelt gratitude is essential for a prosperous life. It lifts our vibration, therefore allowing more of the good to come into our lives. "Like energy attracts like." By being true to ourselves and recognizing the beauty and all-ness in our souls, we can accomplish great things this year.
Happy New Year and may God's blessings pour upon you this day and always!
