Year of the Wood HORSE

Year of the Wood HORSE
(Yang – colour Green)
31 January 2014 - 18 February 2015

Abundance – Purpose - Freedom

The Year of the Wood HORSE brings us probably one of the most powerful years we have had in 60 years – prepare for mega shifts this year!  (Which is a welcome change from all the mega sh*t of the past few years).

A Horse year is considered a good year bringing good fortune to those willing to work hard and act fast.  Procrastinate and you are guaranteed to fail.
The energy of a Horse year is fast and you will need to keep up with it.  However, as mentioned in my previous Blog, when life is getting busy around you, you will need to have common sense and trust your gut before riding forward.  Don’t let the excitement of what is happening cause you to listen to your mind over your heart/intuition.  There is a feeling of rushing at times, but don’t let that force you into a decision, if you are not sure about something, then wait, always wait for clarity and/or more information before moving ahead. 

We are all going to need to saddle up and hang on for the ride of our lives this year.  It’s gonna be fast, fun, wild at times, unpredictable, exciting and sometimes darn right nerve wracking!  So we will need to ensure that we are determined, remain in integrity, stand in our truth, and persevere – and oh how we will be tested on that one over the coming year!  There is no sitting on the fence this year, it is very black and white, very yes or no, with no middle ground in between. 

The Wood Horse brings us purpose, strength, power, stability, new growth, urgency, dynamic action, mobility, independence and victory.  The last two years were Water years and were quite tough on us, this year we are relieved to lift our heads up and finally feel like we are getting somewhere.

It could also be a very romantic year; you could be swept off your feet into a passionate adventure.  It may not last forever (or it may for some) but it certainly will be fun!  BTW how is your lingerie drawer looking?

We will all be travelling more during this year, and let’s face it after the past few years we could all do with some new adventures!

If you tend to be a bit of a fiery personality, you will need to learn to control that during this Wood Horse year, if you keep losing your temper you will lose a heck of a lot more this year.
If you are a control freak you could come unstuck this year, as you will not be able to control others like you have done in the past.  Freedom is one of the gifts that Wood Horse brings, and this freedom is available to all this year.

2014 is the time for us all to step forward as Leaders rather than followers.  We have spent so many years dealing with the Ascension Process, now we are out the other side of it, we have been reborn in our own wisdom and we are now invited to step into the world with it.
Women are well favoured in business from this year onwards, as women prepare for the 20-year cycle, which runs from 2024 through to 2043.  (Baby girls born in 2014 “will be leaders of the future”).

Financial wealth and opportunities - in many areas of your life - are all well aspected during this year for those who are decisive and take action.  Personal success is assured this year if you follow the guidance given. 
However, as fast as money comes in your urge to splurge could see it going out just as fast.  So keep a tight rein on your finances, and invest in what will bring you a better ROI in say, five years time.

Working in harmony with yourself and others is the key to working with the energies the Wood Horse brings.  Integrity is essential so that you do not lose yourself.  Kindness and being loving will be rewarded this year and will keep you on track.  Discipline will definitely be needed as will respecting self and others.

There is Yang (male) energy this year after two years of Yin (water/feminine) energy, so you will need to saddle up your inner Warrior/ess and start showing him/her to the world this year.  Warrior energy is needed to match the energy of this year, not aggressively, but rather as in the Way of the Peaceful Warrior.

It is a high energy year, so you will need to ensure that your energy can match that.  It is very important this year to stay healthy and strong.  So sort out your nutrition and exercise, resolve to put better practices in place – you are preparing yourself for success – and you will need to be able to keep going especially during the busy times.  Boost your immune system, do strengthening practices for inner and outer strength, get the juicer out!  And you must stay grounded; all the excitement can make you forget to check your grounding that is why good nutrition is so important even when you are so busy you haven’t got time to bless yourself!

This is a year for building and showing confidence, and the Wood Horse will help you to ride confidently into all you do this year.  It is very important to finish what you start this year, all the attractive opportunities could have you going off in all sorts of directions like an untrained colt, rein yourself back in, focus and finish one thing at a time.

In your time off, ensure that you spend plenty of time out in Nature; freedom-loving horse needs space and fresh air.  Plus Nature always helps you to ground yourself. 

FENG SHUI Tips for Wood HORSE year

Clear Clutter

I know you know this, but you may find yourself finally realising that you really don’t need all those things after all.  You have changed; your lifestyle is changing so you don’t need all the stuff that no longer fits in with who you now are.  (One report I read had a great illustration where the writer said something about, is she really going to hold those big dinner parties anymore?  And if not, then she doesn’t need all those steak knives etc cluttering up her cupboards). 

Fix It/Finish It 

Fix anything that is broken or leaking or throw it away.  Any other outstanding jobs or tasks?  Then get them done as soon as possible.  And don’t forget your gardens/attics/basements/garages/offices etc.; this applies to all of those areas also.

Clothing/Accessories for self and home/environment

Wood is represented by the colour green.  To be in harmony with the energy of the year and befriend the ruling Wood Horse energy, it is recommended to wear the colours of the Wood Feng Shui element - all shades of Green and Brown. 
In addition to Wood Feng Shui element, you can also wear the colours of the Water and Earth elements, because these two elements support the Wood in its growth and well-being. So, the colours blue and black (Water element colours) as well as all earthy tones (Earth element) are also good in the coming year of the Wood Horse 2014.
You can wear not only clothing, but also all sorts of accessories in the green-brown colour scheme, such as jewellery, belts, scarves, shoes and handbags.
To make it even more powerful, you can choose jewellery with natural crystals and stones with the presence of Wood energy, such as emeralds, green jade, agate, green tourmaline, peridot (the stone of new beginnings) and malachite. 
Also good are crystals and stones with the presence of Water element energy - such as turquoise, aquamarine, sapphire, pearls, kyanite, lapis lazuli and moonstone. Or, go for black colour ones, such as black obsidian, black tourmaline or black onyx.
Least favourable colours in 2014 are the colours of Fire and Metal feng shui elements, respectively all whites and greys, as well as purple, orange and red colours.
However, because Horses are considered to have the energy of fire, it is OK to wear accessories in Fire feng shui element colours (reds and oranges).

Horse ornaments etc

In classical feng shui applications, the Horse brings the energy of success, fame, freedom and speed.
Thus, the horse feng shui symbol is often used in the Fame area of the Bagua (South), as well as the Career area (North).
The image of a horse (or several horses) be it in art, a photo or a sculpture is often used in business and office feng shui applications.
As horses symbolize the Feng Shui element of Fire, be mindful about not placing cures with horses, such as for example, an image with many running horses, in the Wood feng shui element areas (check the Bagua for more info).
If you love horses and would like to use this cure in your love & marriage feng shui area, be sure to place two horses (not one or three.)
If you have a sculpture of a horse and need to know which direction it should face, you can have your horse sculpture face any opening, such as a door or a window.

I only have one word of caution regarding the year of the Wood Horse, as Spirit has repeatedly been showing me the wooden horse of Troy, the Trojan Horse.  Caution is required to still trust your gut and intuition even when all the wonderful things are happening.  We will be vulnerable for a while; having come through a rough couple of years we are almost desperate for things to get better.  That is when we can get duped, so even when the good times start rolling in, apply common sense especially when linking up with new people (some may have hidden motives that will not be immediately apparent).  And as it is a Yang energy year, there will be those around you who are super-competitive (and they may hide it well at first), so keep your counsel about what you are planning to do until you know you can trust people, and always copyright your work so that it cannot be stolen or plagiarized.  

To help you stay on track I have created a very special Spray Mist to celebrate the Year of the Wood Horse:

Wood HORSE Spray Mist

This delightful Spray Mist will support you during the Year of the Wood HORSE. 
It is time for you to ride into the future you have been working so hard for

as long as you are prepared to work hard. 

Simply spray your aura and environment with this special blend.

Spray into your aura and environment before you do the following visualization:-

VISUALIZATION for Year of the Wood Horse
(copyright Elly Yule ©2014)

Ensure that you will not be disturbed.
Sit comfortably ensuring that you have not crossed your legs/arms or hands.
Focus on your breath, and start taking deeper and deeper breaths, inhaling and exhaling through the nose.
Feel your body becoming more settled and relaxed as your breathwork centres you.
When you are in a meditative state, clear your mind and wait for what will follow.

Your Horse will now present itself to you – what does it look like? What colour is it? How big is it?
Picture the saddle that you will be putting on your Horse this year.  What does it look like?  Smell like?  Feel like?  What is it decorated with?
Now see yourself putting the saddle on your Horse.
How are you dressed?
Now see yourself mounting your horse – how does that feel?
Where are you? What kind of scenery/landscape are you in?
And now your Horse has started trotting off – which direction are you going in?

Use this visualization regularly to tap into Horse’s inner guidance and wisdom.


This year’s Wood Horse invites you to let out your free spirit and express yourself as a free spirit in all that you say, do and think.  We all have a free spirit within us, now is the time to let him/her out and express yourself freely in all that you say and do.

Don’t limit yourself in any way this year; there are no limits this year.  You really have no idea just how much success you will experience this year, the Universe will surprise you beyond your wildest dreams.  And don’t limit your dreams and goals; make them big, audacious ones as there is absolutely nothing to hold you or them back anymore.

We had all of last year to “ponder and plan”; this is the year for going for it.  If you want to move home – do it.  If you want to change jobs or get a promotion – do it!  If you want to launch a new business – do it!  If you want to find the partner of your dreams – do it!  This year you will have the energy and passion required.  Be optimistic, be excited, be inspired, be fearless - the time of The Quickening is here - enjoy it!

(a poem by Theodora Lau)

I am the Kaleidoscope of the mind.
I impart light, color and perpetual motion.
I think, I see, I am moved by electric fluidity.
Constant in my inconstancy
I am unshackled by mundane holds,
Unchecked by sturdy, binding goals.
I run unimpeded through virgin paths.
My spirit unconquered –
My soul forever free.

NEW MOON and Chinese New Year

NEW MOON and Chinese New Year

Because there is so much to share with you, I am writing this in two parts, today I will focus on today’s New Moon and tomorrow I will expand further on Chinese New Year and the Year of the Wood Horse.

NEW MOON – Supermoon!

 Copyright Josephine Wall

We have a New Moon in Aquarius.

Aquarius – “I belong”

Aquarius is an Air sign.  Aquarians are intellectuals, visionaries, pioneers, eclectic, and very individual.

Aquarius represents truth, science, friendship, altruism, hope, ideals, associations, inventors, eccentricity, electronic media, charisma, catastrophe, computing, New Age interests, anything unusual, astrology, and humanitarian pursuits.

This New Moon is the second New Moon in a month, and is also a Supermoon.  The numerology for today adds up to 11, a Master Number representing a gateway or portal that we are now going through.

Have you noticed your dreams have increased and/or become more vivid in the past week?  That is because we are receiving illumination and downloads from this New Moon. 
If you have been worrying about something, ask for the answer to be given to you in your dreamtime, as this is the perfect moon for receiving answers to your questions.
And keep a note of your dreams in your dream journal, even the split second seemingly insignificant ones, as they all have meaning which will be revealed to us over the coming year/s.

Slowly but surely the heavy energy of last year is fading in our memories and our energy fields.  We have almost shaken off the “shackles” as we tentatively step forward into our brave New Year riding on the back of the Wood Horse.

If you have been thinking about trying something new or different then go for it.  You are totally supported by the energies of this New Moon.  Aquarians aren’t afraid to experiment, so we need to follow their example.  I said to several people right at the start of this year, that this would be the year of “who dares wins” and the planets now support my theory.  This is the year when your dreams really can come true.

This New Moon offers us the opportunity to see something or someone from a new perspective.  You may see yourself in a new way and decide you want to completely change your image.  You may see your home in a new way and decide that you really cannot stand that old sofa any longer and you want to revamp your home (a great opportunity to get creative with an upcycling project).  Are you in a rut?  With your habits?  Daily routine? Relationship? Work? Social life?  Use this refreshing new perspective to open your eyes and see things anew.

And if you have been feeling stuck (and last year kept many of us held back or stuck), then this New Moon can help you to get moving again.  On a good day we can smell the promise of Spring in the air and our bodies are aware of this.  We are now in the last Moon of Winter, so we can prepare for Spring.  We continue to clear clutter on all levels and review the plans we want to bring to fruition this year.  Enjoy the last Moon of Winter, the last Moon of rest before we enter a busy year ahead.

Take a big, deep breath and let it out. 
Do it again and let it out like a long sigh. 
You are off the hook. 
You can relax. 
You are free to completely be yourself this year. 
You are free at last. 
You are Free!

Now you may not quite feel like that yet, as I said earlier, we are shedding the remainder of last year and we are almost there.  Can you feel inside a gentle excitement building?  That is the change of year energy building, the energy of Horse coming in.  Welcome the changes in your energy openly and gently, there's no need to analyse them, just let them happen.

Even though Horse years are all about cantering ahead, the planets have already told us that it will be slow and steady progress for the first half of this year, so do be patient.  By all means go for it, however do not be disappointed if things do not start happening as quickly as you would like, they will – when the time is right.  The first half of the year is about building solid foundations for lasting success.

Collaboration energy is around again, so continue to see who you can team up with and work with.  Is there a new group you want to join?  Is there someone you would really like to join forces with?  Do you want to create your own group/organization?  The energy is there to support this, so go for it.

The era that we are in is one of collaboration, doing it together, not thinking we always have to do it on our own.  The more of us that gather together especially when thinking of our communities and global family, the better the chance of success. 
We all know the power of group energy; a group can bring about change so much more quickly than individuals.  We have seen this in Somerset where the people united regarding the flood damage and got the Prime Minister to implement dredging local rivers to help prevent future flood damage.  I have seen this in the past week amongst my global community of Herbalists, an issue arose and we found ourselves (thousands of us from all over the world) uniting to achieve a positive outcome. 
As I said a couple of years ago, people power is the way forward.  So stand in your power as an individual and unite with others standing in their power to bring about the changes needed in our world.  I cannot wait to hear what you get up to!

As ever, Love is the key.  We need to keep checking that we are thinking love, speaking love, acting with love and emitting love.  That’s not easy when you are busy in 3-D land, but do check in with yourself regularly.  Before you react to something or someone ask yourself “does it serve me to react?” and then go into your heart centre and send love to the person/situation.

Last year’s Snake year enabled us to shed our old skins on all levels and in all areas of our lives.  This month is the completion of that before we boldly ride forward into what could be the most exciting, interesting, abundant, wild year we have ever known.  Sure there will be ups and downs, however this year you will not let anyone or anything hold you back from achieving your dream/goal.  When tests and challenges pop up, keep your eye on the prize and keep going.  This really is the year to “follow your bliss” and to totally be yourself.  Be excited about the year ahead, it’s gonna be a good one! 

The symbol I keep being shown is a Butterfly.  I saw all of us revealing our dazzlingly beautiful wings, fluttering them and filling our world with a riot of colour and beauty-full vibrations.  Let’s fill our world with colour, beauty and love this year. 


"If you care enough for a result, you will most certainly attain it"

New Moon Blessings y’all!

FULL MOON Blessings! (January 2014)



CANCER – “I feel”

Cancer is a water sign that represents feelings, nurturing, home, defense, patriotism, conservation, family, sensitivity, moodiness, introversion, mothering, caring for others, catering, property and home, interiors. Hobbies involving fantasy and imagination.

 Artist/copyright: Josephine Wall

Cancerians are Moon Children who love to live near water especially the sea.  They are terrific fun to be around and sometimes enjoy being the centre of attention.  They adore their families and take great pride in their homes.  They are creative and often psychic and many can be found working in the healing/therapeutic and creative arts.  When they are on form, they are great but if they are having a bad day, watch out, as they can be darn right horrible!  They then retreat into their shell and everyone around them is saying, “WTH is going on?”  They come out of their shell when they are ready acting as if nothing had happened.  Whilst this can be maddening to live with, they are so adorable that we forgive them over and over again just to be in their wonderful light once more.  They are good parents and have a strong connection to Mother Earth, they can see the bigger picture and are happy to be activists particularly regarding conservation.

This Full Moon is the culmination of what was seeded at the New Moon we were gifted with at New Year.  How are you doing with all that?  By now most people have fallen off the wagon regarding their resolutions (I’m so glad I never bother with them).  Take time to use the bright light of this Full Moon to shine on something you may have missed when making your New Year plans.  Allow Grandmother Moon’s beautiful beauty to bathe you in lunar knowledge and open yourself to receiving Her downloads; She just may have a tip to give you to help you for the year ahead (particularly regarding your creativity).

A Full Moon in the homely sign of Cancer invites us to shed our darkest fears and to dance with our shadow side.  Some have found the start to this year quite challenging with an internal battle going on with their shadow side.  All of this is part of the divine plan to free you of the chains of your past and its associated emotions so that you can move forward boldly and confidently into your year ahead.  Another inner conflict may be the urge to take a risk - yet the fear of doing so, the urge to take that leap - yet wanting to stay where it is safe and familiar.  This type of internal tussling can be tiring, now that you know what is going on there is something you can do about it:
- Sit down where you cannot be disturbed.
- Write down what you are feeling, just free flow across the page, do not re-read it, just scribble and scribble until everything inside has been emptied on the page/s. 
- Then twist the page/s and set fire to it/them (please do this safely, preferably outside near a water source, in an old metal bucket is ideal).  Ensure that every word has been reduced to ash – you may find that the most stubborn fears/beliefs take longer to burn, as they are the ones that are the hardest to shift. 
NB - you may need to use a lot of matches!

Don’t forget that Full Moons magnify and amplify whatever is going on, yet all of this will be forgotten in 2-3 days time.  Maintaining our balance is the key to getting through the next few days and that may be challenging at times.

January has brought realisations after last year’s continual clearance.  You may start to look around your life and the people in it and realise that actually you have changed, and no doubt they have changed, and perhaps it is time to move on.  Take time before taking action.  Ensure that you are attuned to your inner self for guidance on this.  Don’t allow yourself to stay because of guilt/have to’s/shoulds/everyone expects me to’s.  This is what the Winter Moons are all about, taking time to go deep inside to sort out what is right for ourselves and our lives in this brand new year.  If you start to feel confused and tangled emotionally, take yourself out for a long walk and connect with Nature, it will clear your head and perspective and refresh you.

And there are a lot of Ass’s about – yep those that ass-ume.  Because many are unaware or don’t understand the inner process they are going through, they are projecting outwards and making assumptions about all and sundry.  (Believe me nothing lights my touch paper more than someone making assumptions about me!).  We need to maintain our boundaries, stay strong in our core, know that we are okay and there is nothing wrong with us (it is their assumption remember which they have fabricated and is not based on fact).  It is a phase that will pass.

Tests about control abound this month and during this Full Moon.  We are being asked to step up, speak up and stand up for ourselves when necessary.  And if you don’t think you are a control freak just wait until one of these tests shows up!  It is a wonderful mirror for us to see that actually, yes we do still think that we are in control of our lives.  One of the hardest spiritual tests to master is surrendering and handing it all over to the Will of the Divine.  Take a back seat and let them all get on with it (only stepping in if your line is being crossed).  Hand it over and let the Divine plan unfold with you as observer rather than instigator.

Last year was so tough on everyone that it is kind of hard to realise that it has actually ended, it’s over – so we need to let go of it.  We got so used to bracing ourselves for the next blow that we are still on high alert.  Let’s give our adrenals a break and breathe out this year, it is safe to do so and we are going to be okay.  Drop the shadows of last year like an old skin (and shake off that snake year once and for all).  Lift your head and take in the light of this New Year.  Lift your eyes and look to the horizon, it’s time to expand your vision because the future is ahead of you.  Stand firm in the present, give thanks for all that you have right now and keep your sights firmly ahead. 

One of the positive aspects of Cancer is its compassion for others, and we are invited to be gentle on ourselves and have compassion for others, as we are all going through this together.  It’s okay to focus on yourself for a few days; it’s not selfish it’s self-care.

Questions to ask yourself this Full Moon:

How well do I look after myself?
How well do I look after my Home?
Am I giving too much to others?
How well do I look after Mother Earth?
Does my home reflect who I now am?
Am I honouring my creativity?
Am I getting back what I give out in all of my relationships?
What do I need to feel looked after?
Do I have enough time for me?


CME’s  (Coronal Mass Ejections from the Sun) caused disturbed sleep and are still ongoing.  These caused symptoms such as - heart palps, headaches, tiredness, fuzzy thinking, digestive disturbances (gastric upsets), body aches etc.

Full Moon dreaming – dreaming always increases as the Moon increases.  Don’t forget to make a note in your Dream Journal of any dreams you have, especially if it is one that lingers around several hours after you have woken up.

The urge to purge has returned, I will be doing major decluttering of the house throughout 2014.  My priorities and interests are changing and I need to simplify my life of what is unnecessary in order to create space for my new creativity.


Use Cancer’s home-loving energies to nurture yourself, your loved ones and your home.  Enjoy cosying up over the next few days, eating together, creating together and playing together and let the rest of the world get on with it.

And keep smiling! :-)


Someone has said, "The Universe has imagined it even better than you have." And we like to add to that:  The Universe got all of its information about what you like from you, and it has remembered every piece of it and has put it together in perfect formation. And so, the things that are on their way to you are so much better than you even know that you want. And as you allow them, the essence all of these things that the Universe knows that you are wanting make their way to you and appear in perfect timing for you.  ---Abraham-Hicks

Blessings to y’all

There is one big mistake that everyone makes at the start of the New Year –
(well there are two actually):

The first one is rushing into diets/detoxes during the coldest time of the year when there is less sunlight.  Spring is the best time in the northern hemisphere for doing this.  Sure, if you’ve overindulged during the Festive season, cut down on the sweet stuff and rubbish and reintroduce healthy eating and more exercise.   
(I could write a whole blog on the psychology of our fat cells, diets and nutrition, but will leave that for another time).

The second and most important one that I am expanding on today, is that most people charge headlong into the New Year, burning ahead with their new projects and goals – yet they have not even considered the energy of the year they are going into, nor the season they are in, nor have they understood the energy for their personal year that they are in.

I learned this the hard way and now share it with you.  I have spent many New Years being all fired up and raring to go, and then by the year’s end wondering why things didn’t pan out as well as I’d hoped.  It was because I had failed to take all of the above into account.

So why is this important?  
Well, it’s like someone firing an arrow into the sky and not noticing a net 100 feet up.
You are the arrow and you have fired yourself full of hope and positivity into your new year, yet you did not see something that could block or hinder your progress.  This is because on the mental and egoic level, all we can see is where we want to go, and usually that’s not a bad thing.  However, with a little insight you can navigate potential blocks and find an even better way to aim for your targets this year by understanding how to work with the energies.

As many of you know, my area of expertise is Energy Medicine, and I have been working for a long time with all types and levels of energy in all areas of life and dimensions.  I now combine over 35 years experience to bring you your Personal Year Profile.

I create a Sacred Space that is dedicated to you, and attune to you and your Higher Self.  I then combine ancient Eastern sciences and modern Western techniques to bring you a reading of the energies that you, personally, are being gifted with over the coming year as well as information about the energies for this year that you will be dealing with.  This is all combined in a detailed report prepared just for you, plus a product from our range that will help to support you on your journey of the year.


The first two people who order a Personal Year Profile
will also receive a free 3 card reading included in their report

So, if you want a heads-up about how best to fly into your year ahead, then you can order your Personal Year Profile here

 We have a New Moon (also a Supermoon) in Capricorn, what a fabulously positive way to start the New Year!  Capricorn wants us to start the year in a practical, grounded way by laying down sensible plans and structures for ourselves and our lives in 2014.  And there is no need to rush, we need to take our time about this, we still have a lot to think about and review before forging ahead. 

Artist: Josephine Wall

Capricorn – “I use / I decide”

Capricorn is a cardinal Earth sign, practical, grounded and agile they can be a bit stubborn and their own worst enemy at times.  Capricorn represents; ambition, government (expect more truths to be revealed and more ridiculous plans put in place as politicians disappear down their own rabbit hole of La La Land), authority, tradition, pragmatism, conservatism (we all need to continue tightening our belts), endurance, business management, integrity, economics and practical expertise.

Capricorn helps us to get practical and organised with this New Moon, enabling us to start clearing away the old to make space for the new which is ready to come in for us.  The year ahead is good for women in business, for collaborations and “buddy networks”, for business and creative opportunities.  However, we are asked to do this through the higher aspects of Capricorn, not just climbing to the top of our personal mountain, but helping others to do so using the power of connecting to the ‘top’, to Creator/God/Spirit.  You will now find it easy to stand up for yourself, as your personal strength, truth and integrity come shining through.  Be yourself and all will be well this year.

Use this Capricorn New Moon to write your New Moon Wish List for 2014, there are powerful manifestation energies available now.  Then write a second list detailing the step-by-step plan about how you intend to make it happen.

We also have a Grand Cross, which is hanging around for a few months.  Grand Crosses always bring a feeling of pressure so it’s not going to be plain sailing for the first few months of this year.  The planets continue to guide us through gentle pressure to change what has to change, to get out of our rut and start doing things differently.  We have to live and Be our larger full creative, loving Selves now, that is what all the hard stuff over the past 2-3 years has been all about.

Pressure continues in our relationships.  All the relationships in our lives are mirrors showing us where we need to heal, where we give away our power, where we allow ourselves to be used and abused and where we either give too much or don’t give enough.  This is a carryover from last year and we are being given more time to evaluate, sift and sort and heal our relationships.  Some relationships will need to end in order to create space for the more suitable, more supportive, more collaborative relationships that are waiting to fall into place for you this year.  Call upon your Guides, Guardians and Angels to help you with this.  Make no decisions until you have spent plenty of quiet time/meditation and receive the answers you need (not the ones you want) which you know resonate with total truth and clarity.  Trust your Wise Wo/Man within when making decisions over the coming year.

The energy of the Goddess Kali is strong this year as She helps us to destroy what is no longer working and turn destruction into creation.  Change will continue and is inevitable during this time of powerful personal and planetary transformation.  But heck, we know what to do; we’ve been riding this Cosmic Surfboard for long enough now.  Yoga is a good activity to pursue this year, as it will help you to maintain flexibility on all levels and help you to cope with the changes and fluctuations throughout the coming months. 


The reign of the Snake year is in its final stages, and Snake had a last snap of its fangs with weird/freak accidents happening just before and during the Holidays.  Hang on in there, the energies will finally start to change on February 4th, when we move into the Year of the Horse, which will move us all forward.  (More on Chinese New Year/Year of The Horse in a Blog post nearer the time).  The gloom of last year will fade and we will happily trot forward into a more sociable, creative and collaborative time ahead.

Each year, Spirit gives me a phrase to work with that rhymes with the year, this is what I heard:  “2014 - better than it has ever been!”

My cynical self who was still worn out from last year said, “Yeah right – not!” I was tired of being given inspirations and then feeling like I’d been run over by a truck by year-end!  After getting a Gibbs-like cuff across the back of the head from Spirit, I was told that we are going to be bigger and bolder that we have ever been before in 2014, and this will have a wonderful knock-on effect in our lives and for those we love.  Okay, message received and understood, so I put together my personal affirmation for the year ahead:
“I commit to being better than I have ever been and making my life better than it has ever been in 2014!”

As we start this year, prudence is called for as we learn to stay within our budgets until the energy of the New Year properly kicks in and money starts to flow once more for us.  Globally, prudence is required so that there is enough for all, it is time for governments to stop wasting money and resources so that there is enough for everyone, and there is enough, it is just being so badly mismanaged at the moment. 

Help where you can and never stop believing in the abundance of the Universe.  We have been programmed to believe in lack (not just money and abundance, but health, love, respect etc).  There has never been a lack of any of this, just our belief that there is.  This is a mind trick/old programming, and we spent most of last year breaking and healing these old miasms so that we do not carry them forward into this transformational New Year. 

The key is to stay in the present moment and be happy and content with what you have got right now.  Stop worrying about what comes next or how it will manifest. The more content you are right now in every moment, the more you are open to receiving.  When you worry and project into the future, you block yourself from the flow of abundance that is all around you.  So, in 2014 you are going to stop worrying OKAY?!! 

Last year’s tough ride taught us all to get more creative and to honour our creative talents.  Start using yours to help you attract more abundance by sharing your gifts with the world. You could be exactly what someone needs. 
You don’t have to be perfect, circumstances don’t have to be perfect, it’s okay to make mistakes because at least you are making an effort to do something differently.  Just do it!  Get started right now.

It is essential in 2014 to nurture yourself first before others.  So often we get swept up in our work, families, friends etc and we always seem to end up at the bottom of the pile.  In 2014 you look after yourself first – everything/everyone else will just have to wait, only then can you have the energy to look after others.  Last year was a rough ride for many of us, this year by putting ourselves first, we will be happier, more creative, more loving and enjoy life so much more.  Nurturing the self is one of the tools to get you through the coming year.  Just remember, nothing and no-one is more important than you, so book that massage you keep meaning to have, have that long luxurious bubble bath you keep promising yourself, block out meditation time – every day if you want to.  Do whatever you need to do to nurture yourself and make it as important as doing the dishes or the laundry, or dealing with all the other requests on your time and energy.
“In 2014 I put myself first, I lovingly nurture myself in every way.”

Remember that we are still in the Winter Moons, still in the going-within time, the time of reflection, gratitude, rest and preparation.

We are now in what I call the New Year Window.  This is the gap between the Gregorian New Year and the Chinese New Year.  January 1st never feels like a fresh start for me, it takes a while for the energies of the last year to settle and fade before I am ready to charge ahead with brand new plans, dreams and goals.  However, by the time Chinese New Year comes around, I am prepared and ready to go for it.  Use this window of time to clear away the Christmas deccies and clean up your space.  Take a good look around; is there anything you want to change for a fresh new look for the New Year?  Clean out old stuff at the back of cupboards so that you are making space for new abundance.  I will be writing more on this as we approach Chinese New Year in a separate Blog.

I will also be writing a new post in the next day or so, which talks about the one big mistake most people make at the start of each New Year and which they really should know about before charging ahead with their plans.

You did the hard stuff last year, so leave it all behind now.  This year you are fully in your power, living your life the way you want to and doing what feels right in your heart to do.  With your heart as your compass, you cannot go wrong this year.  Through all the clearing done last year, your intuition is more honed and you are allowing the will of the Divine to work through you and guide you.  Guides, Angels and Ancestors are still on hand to help, so don’t forget to ask for help, ask more often and ask bigger!

I am declaring 2014, the Year of the Seed Bombs.  What kinds of seeds do you want to sow this year?  Whatever you decide is your theme for the year, see where you can anonymously throw one of your seed bombs to brighten someone’s day or improve someone’s life.  I intend to throw Love Seed Bombs by being more loving towards myself and every other Being I come into contact with.  Let me know what you intend to sow/throw.


Be patient with yourself and others in January.
Take new steps forward slowly, carefully and mindfully (don’t go charging ahead).
Remember that solid foundations create lasting success (avoid shortcuts, take the time to build good foundations for your new projects/dreams/goals/desires).
Speak with kindness every time you open your mouth during January.
Be perfectly clear so that everyone understands exactly what you are saying/meaning/doing.
Stand in your truth with gentleness and integrity.
Make Peace your normal state.
Commit to yourself totally.
Trust your intuition and let that be your compass for the year.


 I move forward effortlessly, gracefully and with ease.
I am patient with myself and others.
I enjoy moving forward step-by-step on a solid path now and
I have the patience to do so.
I love myself.
I know that I am fully supported by the Universe.
I believe and trust in Divine Timing.
I create all that I desire perfectly.
I steer myself on the Path of my Heart


“Your Inner Being would want you to manifest everything that you decide that you want. Your Inner Being would want you to know that you have value and the ability to have or be or do anything. Your Inner Being would want you to fulfil every wish and whim that you could identify. “
"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter." "
