Did anyone else feel like they wanted to start this year over? Thank God for the Chinese New Year, the first new moon of the Lunar Year. 2013 is the year of the Water Snake. The moon takes close to 13 months to travel around the Earth. This New Year speaks more to me than the arbitrary day, December 31, marking the Earth's revolution around the sun. Imbolc, the Return of the Light, has just passed and with it the fact that we made it to the halfway point between the first day of Winter and the first day of Spring.
We, at iHanuman, feel we have pushed through the dark night of Winter and finally see the light of Spring. But will heed the prophecy of the Chinese New Year, well described in this quote by Joseph Cambell, "We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come." The old ways, as prophesied by ancient Astrologers, are no longer sustainable. It is time to move forward with the Great Innovator, Uranus. Be Quick and Decisive, like the Snake. What works for you and what does not? Take Inventory. We are ALL going to be busy, but be sure that what you are busying yourself with is sustainable and worthwhile.
