Year of the Horse

Good stuff reblogged from The Woolshed Wellington New Zealand’s website:

PICT13052c3ba6383171d2d3611d4261We officially entered the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Horse, on 31st January at 10.38am. As a point of balance approaches with Autumn Equinox this month, here are a few interesting thoughts from Dr. Catherine Wilkins from her weekly Fractology newsletter:

A horse’s strength is its speed.  Also its sociability, especially with other horses.  We are beginning to pick up speed!  So what happens when we pick up speed?  Anything not properly secured tends to fall off.  In other words, anything that is holding us back has been coming up for us to release.
It will become increasingly difficult to hold onto these ‘negative anchors’ as the year progresses. We can all make it much easier for ourselves by letting go now.

So why don’t we do it?  Because we know the more we let go the faster we will begin to move and speed can be scary.  Things can whip by so fast and we can feel out of control.  I think that’s the point.  I think we’re meant to be out of control.  As the evolution of the collective consciousness moves forward we are being encouraged to open to yin energies, to bring in enough yin to balance our yang.  Yang loves to be in control, but yin knows that balance is far more important and that control, more often than not, pulls us out of balance.  The most appropriate control is self-control and this is where the two come together.  When we exercise self-control we are always in balance.  So the intention is:
I exist at the balance point of Heaven and Earth.  All things dance to the rhythm of my creation.
Life lived with the Universe as our dance partner is joyous and exciting, surprising and adventurous.  But remember, we have to allow the Universe to lead because we don’t always remember the steps.

Thank you Catherine!

  1. Interesting… I am going to reflect on this: “Yang loves to be in control, but yin knows that balance is far more important and that control, more often than not, pulls us out of balance.”

  2. […] eins zum Jahr des Pferdes: Year of the Horse […]

  3. Lovely! Well stated. I love her last sentence. It is not my job to try to lead the dance!
