Gnomes, Norse God & Chinese New Year


Today, February 12th, rings in the Chinese New Year of Ox – which is my native Chinese Zodiac sign. I feel an excitement about this year, although I feel there is quite a bit of work ahead. It feels like a year of solid focus on, and anchoring of, passionate pursuits and perhaps even, for some, greatest life path focuses. This includes collective projects and systems that will help shape the future.

As I wrote before about the Year of the Ox:

This will herald a collective year of building toward goals, solid commitment and consistency to manifesting tangible results, taking concrete steps rather than getting lost in illusions, possibility for prosperous enrichment and creative refresh, family, emotional unions, and value focus, and a rise in need of teamwork, loyalty, intuition, versatility, courage, ethics, professional discipline, solid efforts, and greater stability. Overall, it can be a good year for renewal, completing and grounding what was started, and opportunity for success in new ventures.

And yesterday we had a potent New Moon with six planets in Aquarius. The last time a New Moon was met with so many other planets in Aquarius was the birthing of the transformational era of February 1962.

The year may seem to have started off slow in some regard, but everything feels likes it’s working behind the scenes right now and may pop out later as if it came out of no where when in actuality a lot of preparation went into creating it. But like the Ox, steady, grounded, consistent action and focus – I would add from the heart and your essence – with the highest good of all always carried forth as you create the new, will build the kind of future we hope to experience.

And speaking of experiences we hope for, I couldn’t have hoped for better with our transformative time away so far. The last six weeks have helped to create a whole new experience for me with skiing, but more so with how to manage and process a fear. There’s been a lot of evolution and anchoring into knowing myself even more and how to create the type of experience that honors myself and my well being, while supports growth.

And with my embrace and action, the Universe has conspired with me to create joyful experiences and confirmations of my being supported and in the flow. On this trip I’ve been able to come to a place of bliss and saying I really love this when I’m in complete alignment and harmony with everything.

My skiing approach is one of enjoyment, not achievement. So, I do take time to take in everything around me, find all the hidden little gifts, and stay extra present in such a way I’ve learned to look for all the elements and navigate paths that are optimal to my desires.

And along the way magickal surprises show up like a whole family of enchanted Gnomes on my favorite run and mountain (Gnomes, mushrooms and Gnome houses galore! I had a photo of the house, but it disappeared – perhaps a portal just for me 😉 ), as well as the ever-powerful and magickal presence of Ullr, the Norse God of Snow, at one of my top three mountains.

Ullr is also known as the “Patron Saint of Skiers, the son of Sif and stepson of Thor, the God of Thunder” – interesting given a dream I had about Thor that was quite symbolic and a bit humorous, not long ago. “Cold-loving, bow-wielding Ullr (pronounced Oool-er) is said to be an expert skater, skier and hunter who would glide around the world and cover the land with snow.”

I love the snowflake he shoots with his bow and arrow! He directly shoots it at the direction of the run that I loved.

I feel watched over and extra-infused with heart and soul ingredients made for me. And it’s come through the experience of walking with fear and making it my friend. I ask it what it wants and needs and I support it with gentle love and nurturing.

Can you tell I have and create my own fun?

Even when all on my own, I’m in solitude bliss and find all the little bits of enchantment that feel like they’re put there just for me.

May we each find our way this year by the navigation of our hearts.

Happy New Year of the Ox!
