Emerging From the Depths – Dynamic Movement Forward – Year of the Horse – by I M Power – 1-30-14




Chinese New Year took place on Friday, January 31st, moving us out of the murky depths of the Water Snake into the year of the Wood Horse. This is an extremely significant shift, some arguing that it is possibly the most extreme and transformative shift in the full 60-year cycle of the Chinese Zodiac. After two back-to-back water years, we suddenly find ourselves propelled into the powerful, catalytic, active principle of the Horse.

Overview of the Water Years

To understand why this is such a powerful shift, let’s look at the energy of the Horse in comparison to the two predecessor years of the Dragon and the Snake.

Dragon years are considered to be dramatic and full of unpredictable events. It is said that everything in a Dragon year is felt ten-fold. This most recent year of the Dragon coincided with 2012, a year full of unknowing, being in the void, and a great turning in the cycle of the planet and the consciousness of humanity. This year was filled with big shifts, some definite trepidation and fear, chaos, a shaking up of the natural order, and a closing of an era.

Today marks the final day of the Year of the Snake. The Snake is viewed as a symbol of transformation and spiritual growth. With the snake in the element of water, we may have found ourselves crawling on our bellies through the darkness, experiencing the unsettling, internal world of spirit. We may have experienced a deep examination of our subconscious and a necessary shedding of that which no longer serves. It would be common in such a year to feel a sense of powerlessness in our search for meaning, and yearning for a sense of connection.

In summary, our deep soul-searching has led us through a process of destabilization and letting go. Transitioning in to the Year of the Horse, we are moving from the degenerative phase into a generative phase, one that will manifest tangibly in active and powerful ways.

The Energy of the Horse

The horse is a powerful totem, full of impulsiveness, passion, keen intuition, and the ability to take charge and bound forth into what comes next. Fire is the ruling element of the Yang Horse, and paired with the element of Wood, makes way for a year of budding, new growth, dynamism, movement, and great leaps forward.

Horses take us through the gateway, make communication possible, and are associated with both natural power and supernatural powers. The horse has many lessons to teach us about wielding our power appropriately, compassionate understanding on an emotional level, and responsibility towards ourselves, others, and the earth.

The horse energy inspires us to pay attention and trust our own intuition, as the profound lessons we have learned during the water years will come forward to be utilized. The horse urges us towards inspired action and surges us towards greater freedom.

The propulsion of the horse energy is supported by clarity of vision. It urges us to map what we want for our lives, know the steps towards getting there, and begin to ride the wind towards an expanded sense of freedom and awareness previously only dreamed of.

Practical Applications

Many of us may struggle with trust as we move swiftly forward into hopeful, vibrant energy. Know that you have all the necessary tools in your tool belt. The deep and profound lessons learned in two water and two metal years have equipped us to be able to move forward with grace, confidence, and power.

A renewed sense of connection through our communities and networks is of utmost importance during this time, as we will need others around to lean on, dialogue and reflect with, and hold us in our power and in our integrity.

It will be important to steer clear of any old stories, scripts, baggage, or regrets that hold us in a pattern that no longer serves. The time for those things has come to pass, and they have no place where we are going.

A Horse Divination

In closing, I bring you a final message from the horses of the four sacred colors, as relayed by Jamie Sams and David Carson in the Medicine Cards.

Black Stallion says: “I am from the Void where answers live. Ride on my back and know the power of entering the Darkness and finding the Light.”

Yellow Stallion represents illumination and urges us to share the answers we have found with others through teaching.

Red Stallion is a reminder of the gifts of joy, and balancing work and heaviness with levity and exuberance.

White Stallion is the embodiment of a balanced medicine shield and shows us that our true power is grasped in the wisdom of remembering who we are.

Horse says:

Honor your medicine. Stand tall. Use your talents. Own who you are becoming.


Selacia – Get Ready, Year of the Horse – 1/30 Super Moon – 1-22-14

Next week promises to be a powerful time for energy shifts and openings – especially with the super moon January 30 ahead of Chinese New Year and the Year of the Horse officially starting the next day. These energies are auspicious and hold great potential for you on a personal level – helping you to connect with your destiny path and your true power to create as a multidimensional being of light.

In this article are suggestions for making the most of these beneficial energies, while also continuing your progress of forward movement this year. If you are like most people, you have likely had a number of highs and lows since 2014 began. There indeed has been, and continues to be, a generally lighter feel and tone compared with 2013.

That said, in the bigger picture you also sit within ongoing radical and challenging revolutionary energies that characterize these unique years of paradigm shift. Changes often are not easy, even the ones you want to make.

2014 a Peak Year

One reason is that 2014 is a peak year of your world being literally remade under your feet.

Other years have built to this one, and the shifting will continue for some time after 2014. Still, for those like you who are awakening and sensitive to energies, this year may feel more intense. You won’t always be able to identify the intensity, either, but you will likely sense it in the background.

Intensity isn’t necessarily bad, of course. You could feel intense joy as a project you have long dreamed of begins to take root. You could be meeting new people, too, including those who you don’t immediately connect with anything significant – but they are to be important for your future. These things can be exciting when they appear, your intuitive knowing showing you that you are starting to bring in needed partners and resources for your fuller life expression.

In tandem with that, any unfinished business from your past that’s in the way of your immediate next steps will be coming to light. When that happens, don’t judge it or get angry or worry.

Old Issues in the DNA

Do pay attention, though, and utilize your tools and resources to clear those issues at a DNA level. The things that surface may seem old, but trust that the elements arising are additional pieces of what you addressed before.

Consider this: the more intense feelings you have when issues arise, the more important they are for you to address. Keeping up to date with the process of energy clearing will accelerate your forward momentum.

For perspective, most life issues a person has now did not originate earlier in life, but in other lifetimes. Advanced practitioners understand this and keep things in perspective. For divine changemakers, this indeed is the lifetime when you have the most opportunity to clear your past – back to the root causes – accelerating your enlightenment.

Year of the Horse Energies

Understanding the energetic tone of a cycle like Chinese New Year can help you to advance on your path by leaps and bounds. That’s because you have foresight about the kinds of  energy you may encounter.

Horse years like we have in 2014, for example, are associated with fire and action. In these years, there tends to be lots of activity and much on your plate. Not everything needs to be done at once, of course, but it may seem that way!

On a positive note, you simply may feel more buoyant and able to tackle things that you have been putting on the back burner. The key to success is maintaining your balance, sense of timing, and awareness of what is in front of you right when it is in front of you. Many opportunities can come and go in such a year as this – you must be awake to them in order to act with divine timing.

Being grounded and centered in your heart will be vital to your success, too. The more that you can achieve this, the more you will be able to connect with your inner voice and spirit. Having that connection is essential for what you want to do, be, and have this year.

Make spirit your fueling system for action in this Year of the Horse. Spirit can help guide you through the windy terrain, the ups and downs, and the obstacle courses. A grounded spirit connection, too, can help you with prosperity. That’s because you are more in a state of flow and receiving, and more grounded about your relationship with money.

Working with the Super Moon

Utilize the January 30 super moon for potent visioning and creating an action plan for personal and spiritual progress in 2014. The new moon next week is called a super moon because of its powerful potentials for new beginnings. It’s actually the second new moon so far this year – making it even more influential. If you are doing an intentions process at the new moon, factor in the horse year energies being ignited the next day. See my earlier December 29 article for a new moon process you can update for next week’s super moon:


Big Picture for 2014

Getting back to the big picture for this year – don’t forget the role of the collective, too. Learn to become friends with the idea of unseen outside influences being a part of your creating process.

That is the truth anyway – you do not create your life or self-evolve on an isolated island somewhere. You live on the “island” of Earth, and indeed beyond that the cosmos. Everything is connected throughout time and space.

As you fully grasp what this means, it’s easier to let go and being in the flow that spirit can help facilitate. Intend now that you will benefit from these energies this year. Decide to participate fully with life and with the divine dance of creation. It is this that will allow you to thrive and to be in love and joy.
