YEAR OF THE FIRE COCKEREL/ROOSTER
OR, FOR THE MORE MYTHICALLY MINDED,
YEAR OF THE PHOENIX OR THUNDERBIRD!
…. And so Year of the Monkey came to an end on 28th January and Cockerel strutted in to take centre stage. Celestial Phoenix flew in with colourful grace and resilience, while Thunderbird, The Big Hawk, emerged from behind the clouds looking as magnificently powerful as a bolt of thunder! The year heralds new beginnings and is a wake-up call to many – hope those ‘in power’ take heed! It will be a volatile time, yet also one of opportunity and regeneration. 2017 could be called a year of transformation, transmutation even.
We can expect a busy time ahead with many changes afoot. We shall be called upon to be more self-sufficient and resourceful, and to use our often unacknowledged talents or skills; time also to be more outspoken though without arrogance; sense of community will become even more potent; creativity and innovation call us to action; physical activity for health and wellbeing is hugely encouraged and if this is not possible: breathe, breathe, breathe; triumphs, success and fulfilment will arise from honest toil and, in this respect, new avenues invite exploration; a stronger sense of justice will be felt; great courage may be needed at times; rash decisions are best avoided. Truths will come out that could well be uncomfortable. However, each of us needs to shine and be the peaceful rainbow warrior that our spirit so urges. The Fire element will bring illumination for those who to wish to see, hear, feel or intuit. May justice, tolerance, peace and kindness prevail in 2017.
Wishing you a richly coloured year ahead,
with adventures, good health and vitality for all.
