Not everything you see is what you see it as. It is only how you see it at the moment. – Milton Erickson
‘Nothing is as it seems’ could possibly be a theme for the new Chinese year of the Female Water Snake—2013, as she mesmerizes and hypnotizes the masses into believing that which is not really there.
As she creates illusions of grandeur, leaving questions of what is real and what is not, it becomes difficult to know what is illusion and what is reality. But then on the other hand—what is the difference between illusion and reality? Doesn’t the illusion become our reality? This year could get very tricky!!
The word illusion is an erroneous perception of reality, concept, or belief. The word reality means a state of being actual or true, the totality of all things possessing actuality, existence, or essence.
Simply saying something is a reality doesn’t make it so. Sometimes the reality of a situation is only an illusion of our perception at the time of the incident occurred. We all have different illusions of what reality really is.
Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly” – Morticia Addams.
This year the Female Water Snake will bring you illusions of what your future can be.
As she winds and spins herself higher and higher transforming the world and mesmerizing the belief systems of many, we will see a new consciousness emerge.
The Winter Solstice (December 21, 2012) and the day of doom in the Mayan Calendar, we finally start saying our good byes in Chinese Astrology to the Madman Water Dragon 2012 and our hellos to the Female Water Snake of 2013. The winter solstice begins the transition from the Yang Water Dragon to the smaller dragon known as the Female Water Snake. Between February 4th the solar Chinese New Year and February 10th, 2013, the lunar Chinese New Year, we will see the beginning of spring and the arrival of the beautiful Female Water Snake with her mesmerizing and charismatic aura.
The Female Water Snake is know for her incredibly deep and beautiful eyes that denotes wisdom and is synonymous with the 3rd eye or pineal gland, the seat of spiritual wisdom. The Female water snake is very sexual, sensual, and has many lovers thus making it a year of promiscuous affairs. Prepare yourself to see a world of beauty and splendor as seen through the eyes of the Female Water Snake. These eyes can hypnotize you. This year could prove to be a very illusional or delusional year with lots of mystery and surprises.
The WATER SNAKE of 2013, paves the path for re-birth, new beginnings and transformation as she sheds her skin.
Water is the womb of life and seeds being planted for the future. By the year of the HORSE in 2014, when the elements finally line up amicably–wood for growth and creativity and fire for passion –the world will feel right again. The Water Snake year will plant the embryo to bear fruit in 2014. This is a time to set your ship on course to manifest your wildest dreams.
This year let go of all attachments—emotional, mental, physical, financial, and spiritual- that may be holding you back. Transform them, like the Water Snake, into something of value that will help you move ahead to the next level of your be-ing. As with anything, you must research your past to detect patterns and behaviors that no longer work for you in order to change the course of the future.
