Greetings Friends~

The 2014 Year of the Wood Horse is upon us, how has it felt so far? I have been doing my research on  Horse Energy and have truly enjoyed learning more about this amazing creature as well as expanding my understanding of *Chinese Astrology. Below is my insight and how this energy may manifest itself to us.

*(Chinese Astrology assigns one of 12 different animals plus one of the 5 elements to you based on your birth year, month, and day making it highly accurate.  If you are new to Chinese Astrology and would like to know which Animal Sign and Element you are plus which Sign you are most compatible with  feel free to contact me fengshui@sandiegates.com and I would be happy to share yours with you. )

~2014 Wood Horse Energy~

I’m really excited because The Year of the Horse is going to be liberating. All the shedding that was done in 2013 may have left us raw, yet full of passion to move forward. Horse energy will magically carry us now, as long as we agree to stay on our path of growth and development. Let this energy come to you by being present and being authentic. Snake year shed our past grievances Horse energy knows this and asks that we allow presence now, allow healing now, don’t look back, and just be. Only then will you hear his whisper…”What are your dreams?”

Horse’s are extremely hard-working and the human race owes much gratitude for how energetically this amazing being has helped us, as well as brought us much pleasure and freedom. Like a Horse the energy that we are being influenced with presently will work hard out of service, even till death, but it is important to ask now…just because you can, does that mean you should? It’s not always about doing more but doing less and allowing vital Chi to accumulate.

This year’s Horse energy wants us to be gentle on ourselves and each other and desperately wants you to know that balance is key for good physical and emotional heath. Reining in our intuition by pushing ourselves or judging our worth based on your view of another is something we need to leave behind now in order to evolve into the coming years. Horse energy senses you are strong but longs to know how soft you can be, how kind, how much love are you willing to receive and share.

For those who exited 2013 with unfinished business, that’s ok but make your choice to either fully abandon or continue on before starting something new. Odds are it is valuable and pushing forward now will have big payoffs later. Let go of needing to control all circumstances and Horse energy will come alive for you. Become comfortable with not knowing all the details and enjoy the journey as Horse energy doesn’t need to struggle to succeed, this is human logic.

Illuminated, Horse energy scours out all darkness and shines a bright light for all to become apparent, will you choose to see? Secrets may surface and be exposed, there will be no hiding. This service is twofold, yin and yang…positively you may finally be recognized for all that you are and all that you do…proceed gracefully like the majestic horse,  arrogance now may bring misfortune, remember your root.  Negatively, you may finally be recognized for all that you are and all that you do…proceed humbly and remember it is never too late to change direction. Horse energy is fluid in nature and shifting now is easier than ever. That bright light will burn, release, and rise anew within you bringing clarity, wisdom, and a softening of the heart.

The world is also exposed, look for a surprisingly large amount of people showing us their life via video, television, computer, ect. You may also finally be getting a real look at friends, family members, politicians, and stars, as the lights come on you will be able to see them for who they really are. Use this time to fortify those you hold dear as some you will have a new sense of appreciation for. Be kind as people reveal themselves more to you, they may be a little further down the road than you but importantly…on the road. This illumination may also be beneficial for those looking to start new relationships as you will get exactly what you see.

Expect a lot of first’s this year such as record-setting, inventions, scientific and medical developments, new policies, new business, new family members, ect.  Yin and yang, meaning some firsts will be highly valuable others may be largely devastating especially  weather, violence, and our laboring planet.  You may be compelled to try something new this year, if so you are under the influence of Horse energy for sure and success is on your side.

In closing Horse energy is probably one of the most forgiving along with the Dog, so if you stumble this year you won’t have to look far to find Horse energy welcoming you back. The Wood Horse year wants you to be free but knows that we sometimes need experience to make adjustments for our personal growth and development. Perhaps Horse energy knows this because he has been with us quietly toiling for so long, watching, and waiting for you to let go of the reins; to become present as he longs to whisper…”What are your dreams? I can take you there.”


Wishing you good fortune in 2014~ S.G. ( Earth Rooster )

Greetings Friends~

The end of the year is upon us…that’s right, the end of the year! If you’re not feeling all the media hype of starting something “new” just yet, you may dance to a more ancient drum.

Chinese wisdom claims that the New Year doesn’t start till January 31st 2014 and will bring the energy of the Wood Horse (more on that later, you can subscribe here http://www.sandiegates.com/you-can-subscribe-to-feng-shui-post-here/ to get my latest blog posts directly in your inbox) .

For now the energy we are still in is The Year of the Snake. Per my last post you may  recall it is The “learned” Water Snake we are being blessed with and this energy is in its last birthing pains of shedding its skin. In nature a snake sheds its old skin to relieve itself of parasites and as it does becomes slower and can even go off to hide.

If you can relate, could it be that you’re intuitive with a desire to shed a past that is no longer serving you? Before this month is over the Snake may be rearing its beautiful head to let you know you have not “learned” all your lessons this year. Snake energy is very sensitive to vibrations that surround us and will pick up on the littlest feeling you may have good or bad.

So what’s a soul to do if they are struggling?

~ Acknowledge and allow your feelings. Allow yourself to feel sad, love yourself as you are, cry, change, dismiss people who lower your Chi, rest or _____________.  Don’t let this year pass with just assuming you are too sensitive, selfish or crazy and sweep things under the rug. Feelings are our guidance system to our personal Chi, without them we would never expand and grow.

~Share your feelings with another who truly cares for you.  Talking to someone about how you are feeling is good therapy. What you are feeling is more than likely legitimate, a life lesson that wise Snake energy is so desperately wanting you to learn before she slithers away for another decade plus.

~Choose to Concur and Release it. This may be for some simply taking time for you to work things out in mediation, having a good me day,taking a self-help class, or even confronting someone.  For others it could be more serious and require some professional help. Seize the day and invest in YOU.

Before one can move forward into The Year of the Horse it will be important for good fortune to release all negative Chi. It is only when we greet our wants and desires with positive Chi that we can best obtain them. I never recommend placing a Feng Shui cure in a cluttered space, it simply will not take. Let’s not start the New Year with cluttered energy.

~My Year End mantra~

I embrace and allow the energy of The Year of the Snake which has taught me to release all negative chi that no longer serves me. Snake wisdom is my blessing so I can grow and expand into the beautiful unique being that I am open to becoming for the good of all.

Good Fortune awaits, S.G.
