2016 - The Year of the Fire Monkey

The 2016 New Year is the Year of the Red Fire Monkey. Because the Monkey is a yang animal  this year will be electrically dominant. Even though the calendar New Year begins on January 1st, the energy change from the departing Year of Sheep to the Monkey will occur on February 8th.

2016 energy is all about taking action, showing initiative, thinking creatively and pro-actively – instead of waiting and day-dreaming.
It is very important to be aware of one’s emotional reactions, because the Fire element of 2016 will be strong and at times it might feel too chaotic – thus people can be prone to over-reactions, to anger/rage, to losing control. Frustration might be your constant companion in 2016, unless the Fire is balanced out by Water – i.e. one must have the right perspective on life, sourced in the Connectedness of All. This way personal desires do not become demands (which, when unfulfilled cause frustration), but remain preferences and choices. Emotional stability (through personal effort) is paramount in 2016.

The energy of 2016 will require internal balance – go for what you desire, act on your own behalf, but at the same time don’t over-attach to any outcome and don’t be greedy. 2016 is about Self-power. One must learn to rely on oneself above all, and from that position one can help others with ideas and actions. Do not be gullible and naïve in 2016, or you can be taken advantage of. This is because the energy expects you to self-reference – if instead of this you want someone else to do it for you, to tell you how it is, to fix your own issue, then the energy will slam into you like a tsunami (the ricochet of the initial incorrect action). This is why 2016 is NOT the year for “waiting to be rescued” or “hoping for the best”! This is the year to be daring, to be audacious, to go for your dreams and make them happen, and to rely on your own inner strength to get there.

2016 is the year to make a quantum leap in your life, to create your own miracle. The energies of the year will support any change, including extreme an make-over! The more ambitious the plan, the more likely it is to be supported and have a successful outcome.

2016 will have a sparkly Fire energy, filled with enthusiasm and creative action. But you must match it, or it might feel like you are not invited to that party. The energy will be fast-moving in many directions simultaneously – plenty of choices for each one of us! But you must hustle, or that fast movement will feel like chaos, or a cattle prod, forcing you to act. If you feel overwhelmed by too much activity, first rest, then get the move on (instead of procrastinating, resisting and dragging along).

This is definitely the year to let go of one’s limitations based on embarrassment and shame – 2016 energy will not tolerate self-shame, self-hatred, or “putting oneself down” out of embarrassment. It is the year of the FREE EXPRESSION of your uniqueness! So be prepared to fully show up as yourself.

The 2016 energies will support physical stamina and require mental alertness from all of us – “spacing out” is not going to work for you in the year of the Fire Monkey! If this alertness is present, then we will be provided with the energy to overcome any obstacle (social, personal, health issues, etc.) The dynamic energy of 2016 might impulse you to “jump ahead of yourself” – watch out for that. The first months of the year (Feb.- May) will be more supportive in  the mode of helping you to gather your momentum, then in June-July the energy might feel too fast. It is important to pick your own speed and follow your own paths for the end of the year. If you realize that the choices you have made are not working, look into it, but do not get stuck in over-deepening emotionally or over-analyzing mentally – 2016 is the year to “decide-check”: decide, then check your progress, then decide again, then check again, and so on. If your choices are bringing you to where you intend on going, keep going; if not – notice and choose something else! Internal leadership, confidence and inner authority are required for all decisions in 2016.

To celebrate the coming of 2016, and to support your own strength during the Monkey year, wear red, orange, and coral colors, have them around your house – these colors have a harmonizing effect on the Fire of 2016, and will help you balance your own Fire element. The stones – garnet, amber, red and orange agates, ruby, carnelian, and red and brick jasper – are highly beneficial in 2016.

I am setting up a special Night Quad 
for the night between December 31st and January 1st
It will be about preparing our bodies and energy systems for completion of the slower Sheep year energies, and the activation of the Fire Monkey – so that as the new fiery energies begin to flow, we are ready and prepared to welcome them.

If you want to sign up, simply pay at the top right corner of this site, 
and I will add you to the quad :)

Winter Solstice 2015

Avebury stones, UK
The winter solstice will occur on the night between December 21st and 22nd. It is the longest night and the shortest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere, when the sun “stays still”, then “turns back” so we can have longer days. It is about embodying and maintaining more Light inside our bodies and energy fields. But it is not an easy process – to allow more Light in we have to create space, let go of the old baggage.

When Pi consciousness descended onto our planet in 2012-2013, she brought with her new individuality patterns. This new energy has to be applied to each person on Earth – to help one build the power of a unique Self. But most people on the planet right now do not possess a clear individual Self yet – they live in a tribal-self-identity (seeing a group they belong to – a family, a culture, race, country – as their identity). So when Pi’s new patterns activate the “building of the Self” codes inside of people, this generates one of three reactions:
  1. The ones who are fully in the tribal-self mode become scared and defend their perceived identity (which looks like anything from “if you are not with us, you are against us” mentality, to religious extremism, patriotism and xenophobia). This is not unlike teenagers rebelling and forming social clicks.
  2. The ones who do not really have any Self yet at all, become swayed by the loud voices of the tribal-self group, looking for a “protector” to take care of them (like children looking for a parent).
  3. The ones who already have an individual Self, are experiencing the time of “death and dissolution” of the lower patterns, or the Ego and the Lower Self – anything that is related to the tribal-self that must be released to make more space for the unique Self.

Looking at these three categories, you can see how you might live in a town/country where the
overall tribal identity of “defend what is ours” is activated, while at the same time having relatives who are looking for protection for themselves (from the government, the legal system, or religious institution), while you yourself are feeling like something is persistently dying inside! It’s been a very interesting few month, hasn’t it?

Have you noticed all the craziness going on in the world in general and within each one of us in particular? This intensified in October and November 2015 because that period of time was marked by the readjustment of the 2nd dimensional energies of Earth. In 2013 Pi brought these selfhood patterns into 4D, in 2014 into 3D, and in 2015 into 2D. We exist in the 3rd dimension of our planet, but the 2nd dimensional energies very much affect us – they relate to the power of our passions. What we call a “drive” is a psychological construct, but the “fuel” for that construct comes from the 2nd dimensional energies that feed into the emotional and astral levels of this 3rd dimension. When the 2nd dimensional energies change, it changes the “availability of fuel” for us in the 3rd dimension. Thus a lot of people have felt drive-less – the old drives to accomplish something are not working well anymore, but the new ones do not exist yet. This ‘null-zone’is necessary in order to incrementally, and eventually fully, unplug from the tribal-self consciousness.

Right now people in the 1st and 2nd categories I wrote about above are not capable of letting the tribal-self go, even though their “drive” is affected as well. Because of this the passion energy, fueled through the 2D, is being utilized negatively – becomes a negative desire – really a defensive want/need based on separation.

The ones in the 3rd category are ready to let their identity stand unique and eventually join the Universal Oneness energies. But they are also not handling the absence of drive very well – becoming depressed, disenchanted with the world, numb. It is very important to not fall into these defensive stances – they will only delay the process of letting go of the tribal Lower Self components.

Depression is one of the defenses the Lower Self in us comes up with to keep us stuck and linked to the Lower 3D Earth energies of tribal mentality. When you feel no drive to do what you used to do, instead of becoming sad over it look at the reasons why you need to let go of the thing you were used to doing, celebrate the fact that you have no more desire to do it and look for why this habitual activity does not fit into your life anymore.

Disenchantment with the world is the defense of the Ego. It likes to have the external world a certain way that makes it feel secure in its assumptions. When the world is showing you that it is not the way you want it to be – change yourself. There is a positive component in this – disillusion (“breaking of an illusion”!!)

Numbness is the absence of feeling, which is a defense of the Lower Self when we have to allow part of it to die. It feels scary to let go of something that you used to see as “yourself”, and sometimes instead of processing that fear (which is healthy, which leads to proper grieving and then freedom), we freeze the feelings in an attempt to avoid dealing with them. This makes us numb. So, if you feel that something is dying inside you – investigate instead, find out what part of you it is (chances are it is linked to the social system that you are being prompted to let go of), be brave!

Seker (the-baby-sun) at the Winter Solstice is approached by three dignataries: Ptah, Osiris, Horus.
An ancient Egyptian celebration of solstice was on the 26 Khoiak month, which currently is December 22nd.
In my book "The Secret of Sekhmet" I mention the district of Ptah-Seker, related to the rebirth of consciousness.

I am setting up a special Night Quad for the night between December 21st and 22nd.
It will be about anchoring more Light in the body/energy field, 
while getting support for releasing the old outdated patterns.
