Power should not be displayed

Monday, January 09, 2012

The water dragon is beginning to rise in strength. I have lots of fabulous events planned for 2012 - those of you who regularly browse my site will see a new menu item SMBH - synthesizing mind, body and heart.

Tues 10th Jan 2012: yang metal horse

  • year: yin metal rabbit
  • month: yin metal ox
  • day: yang metal horse

The emperor is yang metal.

The flow is to rivalry.

The emperor is weak.

The way to deal with rivalry is to be doing good for others with no thought of personal reward. It is akin to flowing out like a mother who nurtures her children with no thought of personal return. It can be very difficult to truly nurture this in our hearts. We need to cultivate an awareness of what is actually in our hearts so we can see more clearly what is there.

Wed 11th Jan: yin metal sheep

  • year: yin metal rabbit
  • month: yin metal ox
  • day: yin metal sheep

The emperor is yin metal.

The flow is to definitely to the emperor with all three stems supporting him. The next strongest energy is wood and wood is wealth to the metal emperor.

The emperor is weak because he is trying to control the wood.

There is a loss to self when we are in pursuit of wealth, riches and rewards. How do you handle this energy. Do you lose yourself in your ambition? Are you always trying to control the flow of events around you to benefit your personal objectives and agenda?

Thurs 12th Jan: yang water monkey

  • year: yin metal rabbit
  • month: yin metal ox
  • day: yang water monkey

The emperor is yang water.

The flow is to the emperor.

The emperor is strong,He has managed to recruit all the metal to support himself - kind of like a big army that is going to do his bidding. There are a few irritants around but easily dealt with by the recruits.

Verse 80/36


   is followed by decreasing:


   is followed by losing:


   is followed by falling:


   is followed by rejection:


   is followed by weakening

This is why softness and weakness

   overcome hardness and strength.



  A fish

   should not stray from deep water;

 And power

   should not be displayed.

Fri 13th Jan: yin water rooster

This is regarded as a clash day and it is not advocated that important events take place today.

  • year: yin metal rabbit
  • month: yin metal ox
  • day: yin water rooster

The emperor is yin water.

The flow is from metal to water.

The emperor is fairly strong but there is a lot of revolution sitting beneath the surface.

The rabbit and the rooster clash with lots of noise and fury. They are both romance stars so it could mean that your partnerships could come under pressure. If you notice yourself arguing and quarreling with loved ones then say - stop enough - this is not about us this is the universal energy and I am stepping out of the situation.

Sat 14th Jan: yang wood dog

  • year: yin metal rabbit
  • month: yin metal ox
  • day: yang wood dog

The emperor is yang wood.

The flow is weakly to metal.

The emperor is therefore weak.

When a person is weak they can ask for a get support, when they are excessively strong no-one can find a place to support them.

Sun 15th Jan: yin wood pig

  • year: yin metal rabbit
  • month: yin metal ox
  • day: yin wood pig

The emperor is yin wood.

The flow is to wood with the emperor and the pig and the rabbit all providing yin wood.

The emperor is therefore in the flow and all is well. 

Yin metal is strong and would like to control the flow BUT the season supports the wood nurturing it. This means that power is visible but the emperor is not willing to give in to the power.

A fish

   should not stray from deep water;

 And power

   should not be displayed.

Mon  16th Jan: yang fire rat - romance is in the air

  • year: yin metal rabbit
  • month: yin metal ox
  • day: yang fire rat

The emperor is yang fire.

The flow is to water.

The emperor is feeble with a lot of water surrounding him in all different forms. He totally submits to all that is powerful and controlling.

With feebleness comes much universal support. Children born today will definitely find many mentors, supporters and people willing to nurture them.

Stuff doesn't happen to us and it doesn't just happen to us

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Sunday 20th Nov: yin earth rabbit

  • Year: yin metal rabbit
  • Month: yin earth pig
  • Day: yin earth rabbit

The emperor is yin earth.

The flow is to wood particularly in the hours 1300 - 1500. The emperor surrenders to power.

You know in the west we have a strange relationship with power. We spend a lot of our time wanting it so we can do other things, take revenge, get more wealth etc etc. We spend a lot of time also avoiding it. Stepping away when asked to step forward, refusing to accept responsibility for our duty and obligation to show the way to others.

Until and unless we come into a reasonable and wise relationship with our own power we will  never have an understanding of why we appear powerless when xy&z say or do this or that. When we use wisdom to understand power and come to terms with our own power relationships then we can understand our causal relationship with others. Stuff doesn't happen to us and it doesn't just happen to us. It happens to the whole fabric of humanity.

Bon Voyage ;-)

Maintain equanimity in the face of strong irritation

Thursday, October 06, 2011

Friday 7th October - yin wood sheep

  • Year: yin metal rabbit
  • Month: yin fire rooster
  • Day: yin wood sheep

The emperor is yin wood

The flow is to the emperor - it is very strong wood with the sheep and the rabbit teaming up to reinforce the emperor. We still have strong metal in the rooster and the year stem, but the wood wins out. The metal (power) is till able to trim the wood irritating the emperor.

In the hour of the pig the full team of wood is present.Wood represents the ability to stand up for ourselves, for justice and right action. This is yin wood so the energy is a bit more flexible than the forest. Wood also governs the gallbladder and the liver (yin wood). As the metal is able to control the wood, it can lead to irritation of the liver meridian.

If you find yourself irritable, easy to anger then bring your self back to centre. It is easy to follow the dust mote of anger but the aim of an evolved human being is to retain equanimity and to remain in our centre as often and for as long as possible.

Enjoy the weekend. Saturday sees the change of the month at 21.57hrs.
