“Be Content with what you
have; rejoice in the way
When you realize there is
nothing lacking, the whole
world belongs to you.”
– Lao Tzu
The inward journey is about
finding your own fullness,
something that no one else can
— Deepak Chopra
About this New Moon:
“Jupiter completes its retrograde just after the New Moon, which restores our experience of movement and expansion. This fully commences the new 399-day Earth-Jupiter synodic cycle that began on October 29. The theme of this synodic cycle inspires us to get off the fence of indecision and to leave the small and middle-ground approaches in our lives. It invites us to move forward in our partnerships in an expansive and all embracing way; and it invites the expansion and expression of heart and art in a big way.” “Venus makes several conjunctions in this lunar cycle and also begins new synodic cycles with Vesta, Uranus, Ceres and Eris. These events influence matters associated with heart, art, and financial resources. They also bring inspiration to cross new bridges, and to pursue our greater dreams and visions. Jupiter’s shift along with Venus’ prominent role in this lunar cycle also adds a social quality to this lunar cycle. All of this produces a progressive and heart-oriented lunar month.”
About this Dragon New Year:
“YEAR of the DRAGON: “Beginning on January 23, 2012 the flamboyant Dragon will fill the skies with fireworks as we enter into the new year of the Water (Black) Dragon!”
“… According to this 6,000 year old art, our planet should progress quite nicely in the next two years. 2012 and 2013 correspond to the ‘lucky’ Dragon, and the ‘wise’ Snake years; the Dragon and the Snake together make up the life-palace of Spirituality. “
“2012 will bring opportunities to awaken your own higher consciousness and eliminate negativity, limitations and disease from your life. And if that isn’t exciting enough for you, just wait until 2013′s philosophical Snake year approaches bringing with it, cosmic awareness, sage spirituality, and integration with Source.”
“…Think on this: Dragon years are traditionally filled with Pageantry, Festivals and elaborate Celebrations. These years hold potential extravagance, grandiose ambitions and futuristic enterprises which soar to the forefront with drama. The essence of Dragon years is ‘ unpredictability’, and the average Dragon year will be exhausting, bringing both spectacular victories and some memorable defeats. “
“Unlike the other animals of the Chinese zodiac, the Dragon is a mythical creature, and the sign of good luck and vital health. Unlike the frightening Dragons of Western mythology, Chinese Dragons are benevolent creatures who live in the heavens and command the cosmos; wind, mist, rain, thunder and lightning.”
“2012 opens communication to the inner spiritual planes (as above, so below) and the opportunity for humanity to receive Divine guidance. 2012 will be a very special time for humankind …Let the Dragon lend you his wings to progress beyond what you think is possible for yourself. The reward will be an understanding of personal truths that may, very well, change your life forever. “ © 1996-2012 Shelly Wu Associates All rights reserved.
