If you haven’t already noticed the lighter and more optimistic feel of the Goat Year, you will as this year unfolds. The Chinese New Year officially begins February 19, a day after a powerful new moon that’s one of six super moons of 2015. This combination sets the stage for powerful shifts in consciousness and breakthroughs on a personal level.
What’s New for Goat Year
The 2014 Horse Year had fast-moving energies and much more fire energy than some earlier years.
Last year’s focus had a lot to do with movement, journeys into new territory, and an intense desire to be free of past limitations. Some of this continues in the Goat Year, but with a different underlying energy.
Like horses, goats move – but in a more peaceful and careful way. The goat carries a more yin or feminine energy – artistic, creative, and collaborative. Goats are more generous and willing to compromise in order to get where they need to go.
As an example, picture a herd of goats traveling up the side of a rugged mountain. One leads the way and they go up as a team, paying attention to the path and slowing down when needed. The goats are agile and flexible, so are able to navigate difficult terrain. These are positive attributes for the individual goat, benefiting the herd too.
In general, goats enjoy helping each other, and because of this, there’s energy of generosity and abundance. Imagine how this could translate in your personal life, and for society as a whole!
Goats like horses, move with fire energy. Managing your inner fire will continue to be important in 2015.
General Themes to Watch
People everywhere will continue to feel the intensity of revolutionary change.
More than ever, too, in 2015, you will need to be challenging the status quo and pruning away things in your life that no longer work or suit where you are headed.
You are used to these cycles by now, yet each year has a different flavor.
This being a Goat Year, you are likely to see more discussions coming from a humanitarian perspective.
Initiatives for a better world, long on the back burner, could emerge to front and center in surprising ways. With enough collaborative spirit, some historical agreements could be reached.
The arts – including music and other creative expression – could be instrumental influences in resolving key issues.
On a personal level, it will be vital to apply creative approaches in all things. Creativity is necessary to break out of old ways of being and to take full advantage of open doors as they open.
The key to your success in this Goat Year is to remain present and access your inner and outer resources that help you stay positive and alert to new opportunities.
Relationships will play a significant role in your success and in your level of inner harmony. Therefore focus on maintaining inner balance and clearing away old blocks preventing you from relating to others in positive ways.
Join with Friends and Groups
Come together with friends and with groups of people sharing similar goals – do this more often in 2015 in order to advance on your path.
Do what you can to hone your relationship skills. This includes mastering the art of connecting with new people and cultivating relationships.
Allow the people in your life to give you useful feedback – helping you to see yourself more clearly. Keep in mind that sometimes you can get a more accurate self-assessment by being around a person who disagrees with you, or even a person you hardly know!
Humanity Looks Deeper at Itself
Overall, the 2015 energies will catalyze even deeper levels of questioning across the planet than possible before. This is partly because of rare planetary lineups and the long momentum of changes in recent decades.
Humanity’s deeper look at itself, however, is also happening because it’s time.
New Levels of Critical Mass
The progression of awakening is reaching new levels of critical mass – triggering a radically new and more loving mindset. As this percolates to the surface within people, the seeds for a more loving world are planted.
At times you may feel like you’re in a void, with nothing happening. Do not fear the void. Indeed much is percolating beneath the surface in such times. The void is the fertile unknown, containing everything you could possibly create. This is true on both a personal level and for the collective. That’s why conscious choice is so important.
Remember these things next time you experience a void or simply an unexplainable delay. Trust that you are not alone, not for one instant. Imagine yourself surrounded by a loving team of helpers – physical and invisible. They are your collaborators in a profound awakening process. They help you to plant vital seeds for a more loving world. As you do this in our 2015 Goat Year, you raise your vibration and accelerate your forward momentum.
