year of the ox- month of the ox
Now we are entering a new lunar cycle: the month of the ox, and the animal that rules this year is also the ox. when the two align, the true nature of the year is said to be revealed. we have had to wait until the end, and I mean the end, of the lunar zodiac cycle to discover the nature of this year. Like the spirit of the ox, we are more capable than we think. We can use all the challenges, struggles, positives and negatives as tools of achievement as we head into 2022. Yes, change can be scary. This past year we find ourselves in new circumstances. some were good and others…less. some felt downright overwhelming. It’s helpful to remember that crisis can also be used to create opportunity, as long as we develop a “challenge mindset” rather than a “threat mindset.”
we can follow the example of the steadfast ox when faced with a stressful situation; there is always something we can do. the ox is strong and resistant. view decisions as active choices, not sacrifices. we need to believe in ourselves more, to be both optimistic and realistic. it’s a good idea to focus on what we can control and acknowledge our own efforts. Still, we don’t work alone, and here’s another ox clue: you work as a team, and it’s important to recognize each other’s contributions as well. Surrounding ourselves with the right people and focusing on what drives us will help us all become the change we want to see. Let’s remember the valuable tools we learned in 2021: we can use them with great success as we approach 2022. Happy New Year!

year of the ox – month of the ox
rat: well, it’s nice to see the rat start the year off on the right foot! you, mighty rat, with your five sensory perceptions, have the power to overcome obstacles once thought insurmountable. your fears will melt away. do not let yourself be carried away by doubt. you have the ability to transform feelings of frustration, stagnation, and resistance with intimacy. this might be the last time you do this, so enjoy it. Understand your passions and don’t get caught up in trying to meet others’ expectations. this is a good time to clean up mental and emotional clutter. At this time, you will meet a new important friend or significant other, or heal any feelings you may have about your father. you can heal old emotional wounds related to the men in your life. this is a strong way to end the year and will go a long way in opening new doors and relationships in the future.
ox – my dear bovine friend. Whenever irritation or anger arises, we must look in the mirror of our mind to see what is causing the reaction. most likely it is something we are angry about that we find in ourselves, but we don’t want to admit it! there is a gap in the clouds that allows you to see clearly and face the reality of your situation. it is a new beginning to see life without condemnation. you will be able to navigate through difficult times much more easily. this is a good time to meditate and reflect. no formal training is needed. it is simply a matter of sitting quietly, closing your eyes, breathing and listening. your ancestors are sending you incredible support to fulfill your dreams. be aware of the synchronicities and signs around you. give thanks and support. The more gratitude you have for their help, the more blessings and guidance they will send you. Embrace both physical and spiritual passion in your life. passion is a feeling and the presence of joy that arises when considering a challenge that you agreed to accept. in 2022, ignite the power of passion in your life!
Tiger: As the lunar year transforms into your sign, you can enjoy a sense of inner peace and everyday contentment. you are a mighty diamond. keep polishing that stone, but beware of selfishness and pride. (leave the pride to the lions, so to speak…) soon, with the year and month starting in the sign of the tiger, we’ll all have a real idea of what the coming year will represent. take note and adjust your expectations and aspirations for the year accordingly. let your truth be heard and felt by others. you are a beacon to others. if there is someone you must face, this is the time. at times you may find yourself lonely or tired, but know in your mighty heart that what he is doing is making a difference in the lives of many. positive change is coming! Put aside procrastination or perfectionism, and break your main goals into small steps. stay assertive by saying “no” to anything that throws you off course. you are like the tiger that descends from the mountain to nourish itself and join the world, or ascends the mountain to rest and relax. let yourself go and enjoy the trip, because it really is the best.
Rabbit: As the year ends and a new one begins, the year ends with welcome inner peace and daily contentment. reflect and look back on the year of the ox and see what it brought you. On your path in the year of the tiger, you are being guided to accept love without judgment and to use compassion freely. It’s time to heal all wounds with people in situations. carefully do what you have to do to make amends. offer a peace pipe. your power of love helps to heal, change and awaken grace within all living things. forgive yourself and forgive others. Now is the time! remember, you can’t make everyone happy. don’t delay your life purpose by focusing on other people’s problems. don’t let the drama get you down. see others as if watching a movie; one that you know will have a happy or at least resolved ending. the helping hand is there, you just need to take yourself out of the story by separating yourself from the drama. once you do, you’ll be able to make peace with yourself, and once again be the happy, content, and peaceful bunny that the world loves so much.
Dragon: At the end of the year, things are not what they seem. something that seems good can be bad and vice versa. don’t take things at face value. look below the surface. (A competent dragon should always examine his hoard before taking it back to the lair to make sure it’s not fool’s gold!) Exit in your usual manner. there is a deceptive energy that surrounds the dragon as the year ends and the water tiger awakens. this tricky energy brings a joyful energy around you, but caution is also required. Trust your intuition and act accordingly. your feelings are accurate and valid. you can receive true divine guidance. it’s time to commit to a specific situation or person in your life. set your priorities, be assertive, stay on track, and spend time on your highest priorities. you can break out of regular routines and see yourself in a whole new way. any habits that have become stagnant or old are now easily abandoned. if you haven’t read the dragon overview this year, here’s a link. enjoy!
snake: don’t let doubt keep you from your spiritual quest. you have the ability to overcome obstacles in your life. he has a heightened sense of awareness regarding his five senses and the ability to protect them against inappropriate actions. break a larger goal into smaller steps (smaller glides?); be systematic. this will also help you get through the year of the tiger with more grace and ease. many things right now are not what they seem. Just like your neighbor in the lunar zodiac, the dragon, there is a deceptive energy surrounding you. trickster energy can bring you joy and laughter, but it can also be dangerous. be aware of your inner voice and the ways it can trumpet in your life and in the world. when you express yourself, do it in a way that people can understand. take care of the way you show your feelings so that people can better understand who you are and where you come from. avoiding misunderstandings will be a key ingredient in the year of the tiger.
horse: Do you already feel like the burden of two full years of tai sui has been lifted off your shoulders? wait, you still have a month left. you feel generous because you think of others and their needs. its abundant energy must be used wisely. Just like a newly plowed field of fertile soil, you have a plethora of seeds that are now ready to be planted with new ideas, new projects. I know you’re excited and want to go! but, dear, be patient with the growth. Let’s say you are planting an acorn. it must be protected in the first few months, but once established, the acorn will continue to grow and the mighty oak will be able to withstand the storms of time. the horse has been in the stable for so long… finally they are going to let you out of the stable! Galloping horses are a traditional symbol of starting a business. now is a good time to start projects. show commitment to all your intentions of love, justice, faith, compassion, and kindness, and be ready to say “hello world!”
goat: just like your best friend the horse, your two years of tai shi will finally be removed from the bandwagon you’ve been riding since 2020. pandemic? isolation? anxiety? depression? pain? well, wait, things will get better! love flows through you. someone “do you have your goat?” well, whatever “the guy” in a relationship is saying or doing, or whatever expectations of you are not meeting, send them love. know that this is a time to love and be loved. imagine a golden ray of light around your heart center radiating out to the heart centers of others. did I mention joy? Soon you will have the power of joy. be positive and full of faith to manifest your desires and find your life purpose; remember to do what brings you joy. abundance surrounds you. live in abundance, accept the power to love, to heal, to transform. you can create love by loving yourself and others, sending it to the earth and to the heavens. It’s as simple as that. an additional note to you: birds often symbolize messengers. pay attention to bird activity at this time for messages. and finally, congratulations! you did it – wow!
monkey: On the bright side of the new year, you have gained some confidence and are no longer afraid of failure or the judgment of others. you are ready to spread your wings (oh those flying monkeys!) and discover inner qualities, abilities and strengths that have been trying to emerge. you are emotionally stable and do not follow your passion headlong into lustful entanglements. you have the ability to direct your desires in an ingenious and creative way, without consuming others with your monkey fire. With your wonderful spontaneities and incredible energies, new projects and ideas will expand within you. During the year of the tiger, it is important that you remember to find the blessing in every situation. it could be something you learn or an experience you gain. for example, every situation offers opportunities to grow and learn. when you find yourself with frustrating circumstances that block your energy, look deeper and remember this message: the power of wisdom and gratitude can heal everything.
rooster: you have completed a stage of your life and have come to the understanding that you do not have to repeat the same mistakes over and over again. during a recent experience, this understanding was finally realized. hold on to your truth and you will have the ability to recognize the karmic obstacles of a situation before it repeats itself again. (and again.) transformation is at hand, as you break away from old patterns and conventions. it’s time to try something new. my finely feathered friend, you are like a phoenix rising from the ashes to new growth and new beginnings. Take a cue from the advice your neighbor the monkey gave: As the year progresses, be sure to find the blessing in situations. In other words, taking a step back and looking at the big picture will always help you find your true path. one that travels around the obstacle and also gives you the best opportunities.
dog: they say that puppies are good judges of character. you are able to discern the real qualities of the people around you and appreciate their individual worth. allow others the opportunity to get close to you. learn to give and receive love in a bigger way. welcome to the year of the water tiger. the tiger supports the dog. in fact, it is part of the relationship of three harmonies: tiger/horse/dog. live with the energy of love shining through your life. you naturally have more confidence in yourself and in the divine. answer the call of nature! get out of your comfort zone and live passionately! As the Year of the Tiger progresses, remember that opportunities present themselves within situations. if you focus on the wrong (and perhaps the most obvious) dilemma, you will lose sight of what is available. It’s like following the stock market and noticing that when one industry goes down, another goes up. By looking at the big picture, you’ll know where to place your bet to stay ahead of the game and make a profit. Being the faithful pup that you are, this means everyone in your pack will benefit too.
pig: can I get a squeal of delight from the pig? As we begin this very special year, step back for a moment. take the time to withdraw and search for answers in different ways. your life is being directed. maybe it’s time to go on a vision quest. ask questions like who am I? What is my mission and purpose in life? take some time to ask, and the answer may be revealed. what if you’re not the “vision seeking” type? just take some time away from your ordinary life to explore. there are answers to questions all around you, but you must be able to sit still and listen to hear the messages. the pig is the talisman of the year, and with that comes a certain responsibility. still, it is well known that the pig can eat at any table, so you will have friends when you need them to help you figure things out when you get into a mess. That said, the year of the tiger could also be a time of well-being, success, and good fortune. you can contemplate the prospect of achieving what you want. look for blessings in situations: they are raising their hands, waiting for you to choose them in this classroom of life.
