Happy Chinese New Year!

This New Moon marks the New Year of the Chinese calendar, and 2007 is the Year of the Golden Pig. In Chinese astrology, each year is represented by twelve different animals with the pig being the final animal in the cycle. Concurrent to the twelve-year animal cycle is cycle of the five elements, so 2007 is the year of the Fire Pig. The Fire Pig, being associated with red and gold, is associated with wealth, abundance and fertility since red is a lucky color and gold is an indicator of wealth.

[T]he pig is often seen as a symbol of fortune and good luck. This is partly because of the porker’s portly profile—the corpulent beast certainly appears well fed. But it’s more than that. In a society that for centuries was primarily agricultural, it was considered a blessing for families to have many children. In this regard, the pig is quite a fortunate character, as female pigs commonly give birth to ten or more piglets at a time. Naturally, the pig came to symbolize fertility. The association of the pig with procreational productivity, however, is not restricted to Korea, or even the Far East. Many pre-Christian societies in the West, including the ancient Celts, also considered the pig a symbol of fertility.

Chinese astrology has never meant much to me, but because we create our reality, the expectation of an abundant year, whether a year of the pig or otherwise, can’t be a bad thing.

In preparation for the March eclipse series…

JM has quite a bit of information on the lunar nodes right now. I love her blog , it’s exhilarating and effervescent and wise, all at once. And with beautiful art as well.

In March we have a series of lunar eclipses coming up involving the Pisces/Virgo polarity (more on that later), but to read about the nodes. The nodes, like everything else astrological, have a wide scope of meaning from the prosaic (the south node is what’s familiar and holds you back and the north node is your highest and best progress) to the karmic (the south node is what you bring in from past lives that is not yet finished, and the north node points the evolutionary direction.

Often we feel we have to work hard to get to our north node, but in my experience our higher self is taking care of that progression. We don’t make it happen – we just make the day-to-day decisions that will bring us in harmony with our evolutionary path.

More on the Archway UFO mystery

Watch the video here.

There has been virtually no media coverage of this event outside of a few minor journals in the UK. I found that reports a wedding having released Chinese-style “glow” lanterns that very day. However, the glow lanterns that I found on the internet don’t look anything like UFOs.

found this site with “fire balloons” that look rather like the glowing balls in the video. Still, even if these balloons were six feet tall, when hovering thousands of feet above the spectators I would think they would appear to be very tiny, not huge twinkling glowing orange balls.

There has been no investigation of the O’Hare sighting in Chicago, despite reports by pilots and other credible witnesses and a nearly complete news blackout on both of these events.

I found a in January that had not been reported in the major media: this time retired Air Force colonel Brian Fields, a Christian who did not believe in alien life forms, took pictures of lights that appear similar to the ones reported in the UK. Fields is reported to have said, “Be awake, be mindful you can be deceived,” he said. “There are things that can shake our world.”

Whether these events are indeed UFOs or not, they deserve to be investigated so that the truth can be discovered.

Happy Valentine’s Day

There is no mistaking the power of love, but as this Valentine’s Day falls very close to the exact opposition of Saturn to Neptune, a transit where the lovely fantasies of Neptune are destroyed by Saturn’s reality check, it seems more appropriate to write about the source of true love – the love that is generated within our own spirit and psyche.

Gary Zukav writes,

The experiences of romantic love are real. You feel exhilaration, excitement, attraction, fulfilled, loveable and complete. It is the perceived source of these experiences that is illusory. You are the source, not another individual. When you attribute to another individual the ability to make you feel these things, you become powerless. As you begin to cultivate the parts of yourself that are the true source of these experiences, you become powerful. When you become powerful, you are able to interact with others without dependency and without expectations. You are able to act from an empowered heart and not be attached to the outcome. The first experience—in which you feel that your ability to experience your own worthiness, lovability, and value—is an illusion. The second experience—in which you are able to experience your value, worth, and lovability with or without another individual—is real.

Because we feel incomplete, we often reach out to others in an attempt to feel whole. The overpowering sense of connection we sometimes feel in a new relationship can be extremely intoxicating and feel fated, causing us to feel that this person must be our soulmate. I believe that there are people that we are irrevocably drawn to, and those people become our teachers and the vehicles for our soul’s […]
