It is the beginning of the Year of the Wood Horse. Awesome. Wild, free and powerful, the Horse Year is considered lucky in Chinese Astrology. It's a time when the desire to break free of vexing situations will either lead to an abundance of energy to make change —sometimes fast and often furious— or conflict if that urge to be free is challenged or pushed away. It is, however, a time to be quite deliberate and cautious. Too much impulsiveness can make this year too much of a wild card. Be careful not to party too hard and go running off half-cocked in the wrong direction!
But what if you're ready to make a change, ready to try something new, but feel fearful about taking the leap? (Because leaping WILL be required in the Year of the Horse if you are deliberate about where you want to leap to!)
I've got a flower essence aromatherapy formula for that! It's called "Doing New Things with Confidence" and it's the one I chose to spray myself with today. I love its balancing sweet scent of Rosewood and Lavender but it's the combination of flower essences that really rock my world! (And I have an unscented flower essence only version if you'd be more interested in that.)
What's in it?
Corn: for feeling grounded and centered in one's body
Chaste Tree and Red Clover: for ease in handling change and a calmer sense of presence
Larkspur: for being enthusiastically in charge in the face of challenge
Zinnia: for an attitude of fun and adventure
