Happy New Year of The Chinese Water Dragon!
Even the name "Water Dragon" gives us the feel of 2012 , with all its ups and downs, twists and turns, excitement, apprehension, revitalisation, transformation, unpredictablitiy and creativity. Within the name we are also shown how to ride it- go with the flow...
So as we flow into the first month of the water dragon initiation, what rapids, waterfalls, lakes and reserviors will we find ourselves doing the dragon dance with?
As the month opens the spotlight is on humanitarian issues with the Sun in Aquarius until the 19th when we take a fishy turn into the mystical waters of Pisces.
We follow the water/fire theme with a Leo full Moon on the 7th- thrusting our creativity to the front of the stage. But with this full Moon comes an opposition from Merucry in Aquarius- do all you can to guard against stage fright, twisted knickers and tripping over your tongue-tiedness! Remember cats are always graceful- even in the rare times they fall, they adjust themselves and carry on like nothing happened, and they are so convincing you can wonder if it did!
On the 21st we have a new Moon in back in the waters of Pisces. Pisces can be boundriless which can cause messes but with Saturn supporting this new Moon it seems this is a good time for getting in balance those essential energies of going with the flow and being discplined. "God grant me the courage to change the things I can, accept the things I can't and the wisdom to know the difference."
Well it seems your wish has been granted- the only problem is if you didn't know it, now you do use this energy wisely!
Not only is Saturn supporting this new Moon, but Mercury too, communication at this time should be well-balan
ced, and well recieved, a great time to clear up any misunderstandings that have been hanging aroud, ready for a new start.
Venus transits this month, from Picses through to Aries, so we swing from the issues of self-sacrifice to self- love through Feburary. Venus feels a little dramatic and extreme this month, so watch out for any raging inner child issues having a tantrum this month, particulalry with Valentine's day on its way.
Mars is retrograde in Virgo all month, giving us a very analytical feel to the month, great for self- reflection on out actions, and how we may change them for better results when Mars goes forward once more.
Jupiter went direct in Taurus on christmas day and continues this theme. We still maybe tricking ourselves into believeing christmas hasn't actually finished! Spending, eating and general overindulgence- we have seen this on the news with spending being up still, lets just hope this is part of the carefree go with the flow twist and turn of the dragon and not the buy now pay later scenario!
Saturn goes retrograde in Libra on the 7th, themes of balance and fairness in relationship may take some carfeul handling and don't expect it to be resolved quickly, there is a need to go backwards and be thorough in order to progress correctly.
Chiron continues its journey through Pisces, giving us an ongoing theme of working through our wounds and any victim/martyr complexes we may have in the hope to eventually become whole, healed and empowered.
Uranus continues its revolutionary leadership in Aries, Neptune continues to bring a vision of a new worls now it is in Aquarius and Pluto is still rocking our world in Capricorn.
Here's to dancing with the dragon in 2012!
