Characteristics they may need to work on include; weak communications, stubborn, insistence, tradition before adaption.

Family and work are primary areas to address in 2021. Utilising consistent effort Ox’s have great patience and a desire for progress. They persist with doing things in line with their ideals and capabilities. Ox’s are detailed and strategic, with the ability to put their strength behind progression toward outcomes. While this can be beneficial it can become stuck when new ways are evolving. Creating situations that ask for evolving communications.

April and November will be challenging months for Ox. With July and September being luckier.

The Ox heralds movement combining the will of tradition as primary. In contrast with the weight of baggage pulled behind. Meaning because you may be able to pull a heavy load, this does not mean you are supposed to, nor should you. As we look at family, loyalty and definitions of success, the time has come to address cost, well rounded outcomes and resistance to evolve. This year brings in energies that put us in the position of addressing our feelings to illuminate what has been ignored. As well as what is adverse for those involved and how tradition fails in remaining the same ongoing. What works from its origins deep in the past, may not serve a modern context.

Let’s do a quick summary for each of the areas of life for 2021.

Family, starting here as this is of particular focus for Ox. It is wise to remember this year that our success lies in navigating through; not demand for what has always been. Tradition serves only when it is timely. As we moved forward into our age of Aquarius, tradition is highlighted in needing to be of service in a modern context. After all this is how tradition came to be. Being present with family creates opportunities of healing, updated context and a renewed emotional connection. Transitioning from demanding fulfilment of familial legacy to an open ended dialogue. Although at times uncomfortable, even clunky, with consistent effort can lead us to a deeper connection, timely comprehension and a stronger unit for all members.

In terms of socialising, starting with family to create a more stable centre can overflow to social connections. Taking the time to decipher where and when to be social is primary for ongoing health, stability in stamina and pace, as well as presence especially in areas of social justice. This includes hot topics of race, sex and socioeconomic influences. Communicating with your wider community will incorporate a new approach to replace stand and deliver tactics for getting to know one another. Calling on us to actively listen, address our own beliefs with a view to growth and to continue talking to educate ourselves and those in our communities. This is with a world wide view as interactions are now playing in a global system.

In terms of health and socialising, discrepancies continue to be highlighted, with a renewed view on our global home and the necessity for a mantra of being healthy for all. Due diligence is a highlight for 2021 in all areas, however I add it under social aspects to remind us it is always a good idea to ask questions, seek out true information and weigh your options for the desired outcome. Especially in health.

Our health aspect connects with abundance in 2021. Hence socioeconomics of health are part of the play through. Health is our first wealth. Supporting us to a new view of social traditions and systems. Asking the question how do we have a more rounded approach in creating true healing. Stepping us into, healing of deep wounds, with both communities and individuals. As mentioned previously stamina is an issue.

Proper rest and self recognition relates to health in light of the following;

Do address your social meter in terms of health?

Do you spend time in places that invigorate and help to maintain your immune system?

Do you support and actively influence culture with health in mind?

Do you act from kindness and compassion in terms of what you require with your specific personality? Including how this relates to and influences others.

We are currently building bridges to releasing arrogance, unhealthy ego, narcissism and changing the view of the shadow self from negative to a positive aspect in a truer understanding of what shadow is and how when utilised as a knowledge base, is of great service. A vital aspect to balance in our health for body, mind and spirit.

Emotionally, this supports balance in large numbers for mental health, adding to creativity, opportunity and our belief in having a future, as well as stability. This is where steady progress is fortifying and allows new habits and perspectives to flourish through regular engagement free of the negative connotations of discipline. Opening a more vital approach to how we relate internally, for a healthier external expression. Leading to manifesting for ourselves and relating to others, in support, releasing out of date emotional pedestals that hinder true understanding and challenge to our systemic and cultural  definitions of tradition. This provides opportunities for courage in regular sense checking and tweaking behaviour as you go. Aiding to improve connections, with self and those in our care.

Emotional integrity finds a new sense of self as in large numbers we see the in real time benefits. In turn helping us to recognise what is not healthy and a quicker uptake in releasing it.

Work wise 2021 can have ongoing energetic elements of being hectic, calling on lots of brain power to problem solve, due diligence – be sure to check your work, technological influences creating major dynamic shifts through industry, work force utilisation and culture. To be on the front foot is to continue education, be it new systems and platforms, formal education programs or group discussion aimed at openly raising what is not working and workshopping to find solutions. Patience in trial and error can be a positive add in when you comprehend there is no right or wrong, merely learning.

Hierarchy and authority will go through several phases of movement throughout the year. Hence stamina and health self care are important. If you are in an authority position it is wise to understand your personal why. Coming from this space to address calls of integrity and responsibility to multiple sectors of communities will help you find the words and actions that are well received.

Finance is a major focus as a pinch point in terms of hierarchy, platforms and true cost to planet and beings. Sustainability takes on a stronger focus not only for environment but also for us in maintaining the demand of greed. Unrealistic demands and expectations will be put under a different and deeper scope, a linking of historic building and bridging culminating in current systems. As the long term influences of these systems are more accessible and documented. The phrase, their own words comes to mind as the power of what we speak either haunts or helps. Be aware of what you are willing to do and say in name of greed under the guise of success.

This is why integrity comes into focus with a modern interpretation enacted throughout years end and into 2022 end of financial year implications. The global movement of workforces the cut and run end of contracting changes in favour of localisation and a grounded definition. Not all multigenerational plans land as expected, with more than anticipated being illuminated. As more people bear the true cost, the voracity of peoples blatant opinions has hard outcomes as we all declare and work through our conditioning around value and worth as well as what we want, what we need and desire to thrive. These blatant declarations can be the launching pad for education and evolution for redesigning all our futures.

Spiritually speaking, Ox energies highlight temperance. What we feed upon to nourish ourselves and the inherent value of all beings in line with what we all actually need to survive and then thrive. True thriving comes when we are connected, committed and willing to actively listen to our inner calling. This calling educates our soul selves about direction. Creating mandates that are harming to ourselves or others, is destruction. Not survival to thrive. History and the systemisation of our beings brought into open forums for more than one opinion and resonance, cycles in and out through the year. Individually it is wise to continue devotional practices. Communing with nature, kindness and growth are key components to focus on in prayer or meditation. Draw on stillness and quiet time for strength. Create calm space within to overflow in service of our wider community. Including nature and allowing the wildness in us to have freedom of breath, supports navigating through the cycles that challenge us to grow, with as much ease and grace as possible.

In summary, micro steps are progression. Keep your learner mindset on for your active listening. Allow self and others dignity, especially in making decisions. Cultivate awareness of traditional benefits and hinderances. Utilise the mantra of ‘works for all’ aligned with transparent simplicity to put out fires and to create good, positive, healthy, widely defined options and solutions.

Safe passage and wishing you a healthy, wealthy and wise 2021.

 

 

 

 

Sun Moon Stars

I’m so grateful we made it. Our 2020, in its spectrum of ludicrous to loving is both overwhelming while raising relevancy in our relations to each other and our home.

Finding myself having had both positive and negative aspects of rewards, protection, synchronicity, distillation, curiosity and experience, this year has been made do-able because I engage in my daily practice. When a daily practice is created and developed, it astounds in how its perfection is beautifully humbling. My path leads to a point of removing the last petals of rose coloured glasses. In turn highlighting much of my list above and thankfully leaning into more positive outcomes. If you need, in a ratio of 3:1.

On our path teachings and depth, remind of the benefit of learning as an ongoing component in life. Respecting tradition, ongoing learning supports a highlight to new understanding and its ability to serve the present moment. A daily practice within our selves or our spaces, en-lightens. If you consider this as a lightening within you may find yourself on the inside of feeling connected. These practices, Feng Shui, Astrology, Geobiology, Yoga and Meditation are traditions aiding development in enlightenment, with great success.

Success can come in the forms of; rewards, protection, synchronicity, distillation, curiosity and experience. I hope for your release of 2020, you find more of these, peace and much love.

Safe passage.

Navigating Our End of 2020.

With a couple of retrogrades happening within the end of this year, its worth mentioning a couple of points for consideration, to ease your path. Our illumination continues on in regards to social issues, authority and leadership, expression and justice. These impact and influence us all, raising to the top what has not yet been fully addressed. Primal urges called out in our behaviour, ask us to think before acting and speaking, with taking time out for considerations around maturing and evolving.

Fear and isolation may add to what you are positioned to navigate, with power struggles and confrontation in the mix. Our opportunity to keep our path forward towards success is firstly to understand that blocks and challenges are a sign to slow down, even to back off to avoid making major mistakes. Patience and small, slow steps are going to aid reaching goals.

Integrating with the Age of Aquarius energy, brings these aspects into the spotlight; self expression, sexuality, gender, innovation, collective well being and health, logical thought and growth. These apply to personal and professional environments and conduct. In business this includes industries like, technology, finance, communication for example social media platforms as well as psychology, the arts and social services. Personal feelings will be raised in professional environments. Concentrating on maintaining is relevant for project outcomes as well as profits. Including employees and client bases would also be wise in your considerations here.

This is an opportunity to tidy up, mature and resolve recurring issues and energies from past life experiences. As in Feng Shui, what is imperfect is a moment of choice. Our choices find us where we are and offer alternate options, if you can be in the moment, in the space, to respond out of victim or perpetrator mindsets to learn how to safely express Mars energy. Mars relates to anger, rage, negative energy left unchecked. Learning to utilise better expression of these characteristics once navigated can bring relief, more options for outcomes and aids us in feeling safe in vulnerability and risk assessment for balanced actions in the future.

For this I would recommend utilising the words in the image as your touchstone for quiet contemplation, aiding you in continuing towards yours and our success.

Safe passage.

Flower Moon In May

 

Full moon known as the Flower Moon, is on May 7, 2020.  Its a super moon, meaning the perigee & full moon combine.  Perigee is the point closest to earth in the moons orbit.  Signalling in the northern hemisphere the explosion of blooms in spring, while in the southern hemisphere it relates to ignition of preparing for hibernation & introspection into winter.  This years full moon is in the house of Scorpio.

Bringing introspection into focus can bring a heightened sense of all feelings.  Bring to the table options for solutions & accountability.  With calm as a purpose, discuss boundaries with context, stay fluid in your perceptions, agree to action based in wisdom.  The work will be worth it as you are able to set up parameters in intimacy, communication & creativity.  If you are in a faith ritual like Ramadan, sunrise to sunset fasting, awareness will have a very particular focus.  Our Flower Moon also known as Frog Moon for the Cree & Ojibwa or Anishinaabe in North America has a complete context around the environment.  Staying grounded & spending time in nature or the garden will support positive navigation of topics this month.

In our 2020 year of the metal rat, in the house of Scorpio for our full moon, our honesty is called out along with wit & random actions.  Pay attention is our credo.  Playing out over an almost two week period, put down ego, petulance, cruel behaviours.  Stem your panic & listen.  Quietening negative inner dialogue, will create space for you to be still within, giving you time to repair & re engage.   Overall this month remember the years mantra, dignity for ourselves & others throughout.

 

 

Much peace & big love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be Intentional.

Allow the body to feel Joy.

When we discuss intention, we address the everyday. The thread travelling through you and the day. Where we co create.

As you ponder, consider how to engage the most oxygen in this day. Are we relaxed? Self caring? Generous in our Spirit? If the feeling of disconnection leaves these with the volume down, what would you give to remedy this? For me, as many of you, disconnection can lead to a part of self that is small, insecure, wanting. When we are intentional in our living, we are engaging with large, secure & having. It is important to note that definitions play a part, as does action, as does recognition. Living with an awake intention, alleviates boredom, distraction, while adding trust and of course magic.

Magic brings the Spirit alive. Its like walking barefoot through the Earth. A sense of other, a rational composition of self referencing. Active listening, coupling to magic, awareness & intention can create relief from what ails. How could this serve? Perhaps even just to allow sleep to come, easily. Perhaps its to be able to watch the news without dismay knocking on your door. Reducing stress & positioning you to advocate for the healthier option, to be part of the construction, over the mass of deconstruction. Perhaps its to stand in your body & not feel like an impostor. Owning your space. Finding courage to step forward, to support ourselves. What would that day to day look like?

What resonates in the now, is a genuine desire of a large number of us, stepping into caring, supporting healthy change & cleaning up our messes, all in the appreciation of what we do have. From here all things are possible. Look forward to walking with you.
