We are entering another fire month tomorrow, but it is ruled by yin fire – a flickering candle. This elemental fire energy combined with the yin water energy of the Pig creates a more subdued and introspective month. It will be so different from the aggressive, unstable Fire Dog energies we have just experienced. It will be time to focus within and become consciously aware of what really inspires you. To become aware of what is true and not let yourself be led into self deception. Between the contentious election,
pandemic restrictions, msm propaganda, fake news and money concerns, people are just tired of all the confusion and just.want to get on with their lives
It is interesting to consider that Coronavirus started in the Wood Pig month (Dec. 1. 2019) of the Muddy Pig Year, and we are still besieged by it in this Fire Pig month – one year later!! Also, that the virus started (reportedly) in the city of Wuhan, China. “Wu” means weapons, fighting and “han” means man and many are claiming the virus is a bioterrorism weapon!
The winter season, ruled by the water element, is officially here. Water, the fifth element, is seen as the low point of the matter, or the dying stage of matter. Water is the most yin element of the five elements. Its motion is downward and inward, and its energy is stillness and conserving. It represents uncertainty, danger, darkness and coldness. The monthly Pig is a water animal and the yearly Rat is also a water animal making the water energies very strong this month and next. Next month, we get a double rat month and year, as well as a total Solar Eclipse, the first Grand Jupiter/ Saturn conjunction in Aquarius, an air sign since 1226 and much more. It’s good we’re getting a month to recoup!
Chinese astrology repeats itself every 60 years. The 60 year cycle (12 animals x 5 elements) always begins in the year of the White Metal Rat, also known as the “Rat on the Crossbeam,”and ends in the year of the Brown Muddy Pig, also called the Monastic Pig. We are in the first year of a 60 year cycle.
I have written before that if we go 60 years back in time, we are in the contentious presidential election battle between JFK and Nixon. It sounds so errily similar to what we are experiencing today, although Nixon chose not to contest the voting irregularities, even though Eisenhower thought he should dispute the suspected fraud. He was only 47 and wanted to run again and not have popular opinion against him. This election is so different as both candidates are in their seventies and it is their last go round.
Wikipedia gives a short summary of the 1960 election below.
When voters went to cast their ballots on November 7, the contest was close. In the electoral college, Kennedy captured 303 votes (34 more than was required to win), while Nixon won 219. The 14 unpledged electors in Alabama and Mississippi and 1 pledged elector in Oklahoma cast their votes for Sen. Harry F. Byrd, a Democrat from Virginia. Kennedy eked out a narrow victory in the popular vote, defeating Nixon by just under 117,000 votes. Overall, Kennedy won 49.7 percent to Nixon’s 49.5 percent. Kennedy thus became the third person elected president in the 20th century without winning a majority of the popular vote. The popular vote was the closest since 1884, when Democrat Grover Cleveland defeated Republican James G. Blaine by only about 24,000 votes.
Citing voting irregularities in Illinois and Texas, many observers questioned whether Kennedy had legally won those states, and some prominent Republicans—including Eisenhower—even urged Nixon to contest the results. He chose not to, however, declaring:
“ I could think of no worse example for nations abroad, who for the first time were trying to put free electoral procedures into effect, than that of the United States wrangling over the results of our presidential election, and even suggesting that the presidency itself could be stolen by thievery at the ballot box.”
Nixon’s supporters and critics alike, both then and later, praised him for the dignity and unselfishness with which he handled defeat and the suspicion that vote fraud had cost him the presidency.
This certainly puts “Tricky Dick” in a different light! There is so much deceit and subterfuge in politics that we need to have distance from the events to discover what really happened.
