December 4 - December 10, 2023
While the social and serendipitous month of the Pig doesn't run its course until next Wednesday's New Moon, with the Moon now in its waning phase a lot of the intensity and urgency is dialling back. There are still likely to be people to see, places to go and just as many demands on your time, but instead of feeling that you can't say no, you are likely to feel more in control. This makes it easier to sense when you need to be a team player or when duty needs to come first, but just as easily those times when it is important to put your own needs first. You can't be all things, to all people, all the time.
Year of the Rabbit
Jan 22, 2023 - Feb 9, 2024
During the final weeks of the month of the lucrative Year of the Tiger, there was a lot of focus on your earnings, but it was not just about the money. The Year of the Tiger will always follow on from the Year of the Ox, which is the foundation year for a new personal 12 year lunar cycle. Once you have set your intentions and resolutions for the future, the Tiger gave you the confidence to take steps to turn that into reality. As you can’t attract what you don’t believe you deserve, it was that boost in confidence and belief in yourself that allowed you to attract more, across all the currencies in your life. What made the final weeks of the Year of the Tiger some of the most empowered is that it is running in conjunction with the month of the Ox.
While the Year of the Ox ended last February, the month of the Ox was a chance to revisit those intentions and resolutions, with a chance to push reset just as the Tiger is giving you the confidence to walk the talk. It is on 21st January that both the month of the Ox and the Year of the Tiger will end, though the month of the Tiger will run from 21st January to 20th February, keeping the momentum going. Meanwhile, the same New Moon that will bring the Year of the Tiger to a close on 21st January will also usher in the Year of the Rabbit, the year that for the Ox is the Swizz army knife of any 12 year lunar cycle, with a tool for every occasion.
The Rabbit makes you smarter, more intuitive and more articulate, something that will benefit almost every aspect of your life. This will get a boost from the month of the Rabbit from 20th February to 21st March and then when it repeats as a leap month from 21st March to 20th April. By this point, the Rabbit will be an all present, familiar but subtle force. However, he will show up with its on communication during the month of the Goat and its focus on your relationships from 17th July to 16th August and as a smart head for money during the month of the Monkey from 16th August to 15th August. The Rabbit will also show up professionally during the competitive and professionally charged month of the Horse, from 18th June to 17th July and during the busy, industrious and work focused month of the Dog, from 14th October to 13th November.
About the Ox
You are likely to be tolerant, dependable, scrupulous and hard-working. You will be happiest in your own home and have a real love of gardening and outdoor activities.
The patience of the Ox is proverbial. Calm and dependable, they like to take things slow and steady, including romantic relationships. Oxen are not likely to flaunt open declarations of love, for their passions are not easily roused. Love grows over long periods of time, but once cultivated, is not likely to diminish.
They have a strong sense of traditionalism and can be at times, extremely conservative. They are generally dogmatic and tend to resist change. They prefer to do things how they have always done it, although an Ox is industrious and always finishes a task that has been started. They are especially tireless if it helps they loved ones.
Despite they stubbornness and occasional dictatorial behavior, Oxen are generally honest and loyal creatures.
