There is a concentrated energy of new beginnings at the moment, with the five-element theme making a big shift from water to fire.
Regeneration is one of several key ‘fire themes’ of this coming year — think ‘Phoenix’, the beautiful bird that rises from the ashes of its former self.
This new moon – super moon in high-vibe Aquarius arrives with the Lunar New Year, Venus stationing direct, and the cross-quarter festival of Imbolc (St. Brigid’s Feast Day for the Christian calendar).
That all adds up to a bona fide ‘power portal’ for intentional energy, visioning, regeneration, and renewal work.
The Lunar New Year carries us into the Year of the Yang Horse, or Year of the Green Wood Horse, in the Chinese tradition — a very different energetic and archetypal environment than the previous several years.
My friend and kindred-spirit, Molly Hall, shares some excellent insights on this new moon and new Year of the Horse. Highly recommended – you’ll find her articles here.
I’ve written quite a bit about Imbolc and Bhrìghde (or Brigid), too. Find one of those articles (and links to others) here.
And you’ll find a good article about the energies and potentials of the Green Wood Horse from Taoist qigong teacher Michael Winn here.
Wishing you a regenerative, shimmering, and freshly inspired vision and sense of Self and purpose at this new moon, Lunar new year power-portal time!
