The Year of the Water Snake

The Snake is the Yin Fire animal of the Chinese Zodiac, governing the Heart organ known as the “Seat of Consciousness” where memory is stored and emotions are felt. Like a small candle flame, it is powerful in being the beginning of great transformation as it’s sets light to far greater spheres beyond it’s own. In a “Water” year, we can energetically link the force of the two elements to unite as a ripple effect, extending our oneness consciousness of unity, connectedness and merging forces within human kind.

Spiritually this Astrological period marks a mystic initiation into the balancing of opposing forces between fire and water, yin and yang, external and internal. This year brings us to face the crucial need to honour the inner life by voicing our deepest truth, our soul seated yearnings and hidden treasures of the spirit. It’s time to speak and share our wisdom so as to lead the way in the discovery of our own unique insights and offerings in contribution to the unspoken needs of humanity.

The fire of the Snake animal heats up the water, giving it visibility, awakening us to it’s power to transform, dissipate, reach out and expand it’s influence.

The water element is needed now more most as we face the two year transit through “fire” animals, from the Snake to the Horse, where energy is set alight through the unfolding of the spiritual heart flower, the expression and giving of who we are. The Astrological fire season brings a rebirthing through the burning off of rigid branches, dried up directions and misguided assumptions.

This is a time to choose again, from the wisdom of our highest discoveries, from a presence free of past shaping towards a space of sharing and experiential exploration of perfection, gratitude and clarity of soul purpose.

2013 is the year of discovery, awakening and alignment with the forces of destiny, With relationships and health as our undeniable foundations for life, this year brings lessons in the value of connection, harmony and compassion, as we learn the art of living through the heart so as to bypass everything that blocks or limits our fulfilment of being our honest selves.

Water element (day / self sign)

Water people (born on a water day – in the Chinese Astrological calendar) will be called upon this year to step forward, take control and gain recognition for the fruits of their labours. Water souls have a busy year in 2013 while spreading their wings and expanding to greater heights…which brings them to need caution where their vital energy may steam and dissipate in spreading themselves too thinly. An interesting time indeed.


Metal element (day / self sign)

Metal people will make significant changes this year in surrendering to the powers that be and letting go of rigidly set ways. 2013 brings transformation to Metal people more than most, in breaking them down to become more malleable, flexible and willing to explore the unknown so as to be of service in ways that require the ultimate level of selflessness that lead to greater wisdom, recognition and humbling.



Earth element (day / self sign)

Earth spirits shall finally obtain their well earned support and recognition for their valuable contribution to sustainable living, through a commitment to nurturing the solidarity of existence.

Fire element people have a year of challenge in learning how to balance their energy and remain creative while under the pressure of the Water’s presence.

The key will be to keep moving to maintain momentum and spark. 




Wood element (day / self sign)

Wood people have a brilliant potential to shine this year as elemental influences are just ripe for the picking.
