Fleeting: Lunar New Year 2013

Yes… I am Asian… which means I am most likely to celebrate Lunar New Year… and I have been looking forward to this particular year for a while now… why? Because of the following:

What was predicted for me in 2011: the breaking down of an old life and in 2012: the building of a new life

So what does 2013 have in store? Well… theoretically the seeds that were planted in 2012 will continue to build and grow and eventually become something worthwhile for me to see the fruits of my labor.

Nothing comes easy… and it isn’t suppose to.

So what does the year of the Water Snake have in store in general? Well in general Snakes tend to:

feel and sense its way through life and represent spiritual rebirth, elusiveness and exploration of life’s mysteries.

Rich in wisdom and charm, Snakes are romantic and deep thinkers. Their intuition guides them strongly. Snakes usually do things at their own pace, and when the moment is right, shed their skin and take up something completely new. It is for this reason that people avoid Snakes — They can’t handle their mistrust and secretiveness. Although sociable at times, they have a strong desire to be left alone. Snakes are actually subtle workers — imperceptibly manuevering and manipulating until they are in the position to get what they want. Attracted to elegant and refined partners, they are deeply jealous and possessive when involved in relationships.

But beyond that… what does the element of “Water” mean?

Still water sheltering underwater secrets asleep in its depths; sinking and muddy. Profit from this year to restore your energies and regain your inner balance. Avoid overwork or any excesses which will follow with depression. Maintain your equilibrium and do not waste your energy. Don’t go too far too quickly. This years Water element will be socially beneficial, calming and conducive to meditation and interpersonal contact.

Ok… so what does that mean in general? Well… I can’t say, because I am not you… but in the grand scheme of things the “Water Snake” year provides:

2013 is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create. A new-found ambition to greatness will inspire you to be all you can be, and provide you with the follow through to actually achieve your goals. This is the year that supports added responsibility,

Be prepared to feel like you are on shaky ground. Not quite settled. With out of the blue realizations that create major change. It makes for super tense times. But also creates movement and growth. Be extra careful with your work, signing documents of any kind requires very thorough attention. Research and investigation are supported. Look for the holes in the loop. But this is the year to make headway in slow and methodical ways. Saturn will assist this effort as well. Things will definitely be accomplished as you focus forward.

Slowly we begin to see the reasons for things, we understand the root cause of some dysfunction. Just like the snake, slowly we shed our skin. We become shiny and new as we acknowledge and release the past. You won’t be drawn to social situations as you are more interested in serious progress not superficial chit chat. Allow yourself withdrawal as it is necessary to self reflect and ponder situations.
