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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to share yours with you. )
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 )
