Year of the Dragon

Happy New Year!!

It’s the Year of the Dragon, specifically the Year of the Water Dragon.

In Chinese Astrology, the Dragon represents strength, dynamic energy, and inspired leadership. It’s a burning creative force, powerful and intense.

Looking at it from a Tarot perspective, the Dragon sounds a lot like the Emperor who is also full of fire, passion, and a drive to manifest a world of his own.

#4 The Emperor from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot

Adding water to fiery energies as big as these doesn’t squelch them. It just brings them down to a more manageable level, and infuses a little compassion into the mix.

The Water Dragon is more open to emotional exchange and energetic relationship building than some of the other Dragons. And his leadership style is one of benevolence and goodwill.

You might think of him as the Emperor focusing his attention on the suit of Cups. He’s as sure of himself as ever, just more open to the flow than usual.

This new Dragon Year might be wonderful, with spirit and passion being inspired by love. I wish everyone the very best.

Moon in Aquarius – High Priestess in the Star's Clothing

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

The Moon moves into Aquarius today and stays there until Wednesday.

Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Star. In other words, her robes are gone and she’s naked as the bird in the tree behind her.

The Moon in Aquarius, or High Priestess in the Star’s clothing, can sometimes be emotionally stressful. Hope may be in the air, but it’s a cautious hope.

Emotionally you feel like sharing, bubbling over with dreams for the future. But your mind keeps getting in the way, reminding you that dreams can sometimes be nightmares.

Try not to spend what could be a nice time double guessing yourself or listing off all the reasons things could go wrong. They might. But they probably won’t.

Be real, but not a wet blanket. Rather than smothering your dreams, direct them with intelligence.

It’s a good time to get to work.  Nothing exciting, just keep moving forward step by step.  It’ll go a lot faster now that you’re seriously on your way.

Enjoy this building process.  You’re making steady progress.  If you keep moving like this, you’ll reach your goals soon.

And if you’re feeling a little dull because all you do is work, work and plan for more work, that’s okay.  That’s what the energy is right now and you might as well go with it.

Creating stability is worth the effort.  There’ll be plenty of time for fun soon enough.
