Today’s I Ching Hexagram for January 10 is 37: Community

37: Community

Thursday, Jan 10th, 2013

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

A community or extended family that works is one where healthy interdependence is appreciated and supported. Good direction is essential, but strong kinship is dependent upon every member of the community. Trust, shared responsibilities and good communication are essential. Each member must be encouraged to find his or her appropriate expression, and contribution.

The functional family is a team that symbolizes the ideal of human interdependence, and has long provided a firm foundation for society. The healthy family is a microcosm of society and the native soil in which ethical values take root and grow. Fertilize this soil, and the whole of society benefits.

The power that bonds a tribe is the yin or feminine principle — gentleness and receptivity. Relationships are improved through cultivation of these. Learn to accept both advice and aid from others, and be willing to assume an appropriate role in any group that supports good relating. A good team player is always valuable to others. Increase your value!

The Daily Horoscopes for January 10th

We seek ways to organize ourselves so we can reach our goals when the Moon shifts into Capricorn at 3:54 am EST. Five planets congregating in ambitious Capricorn prompt us to concentrate our attention on getting ahead or gaining prestige at work. However, it may be challenging to discern what’s most important because hazy Neptune aligns with Venus, Mercury and the Moon today. Thankfully, we should gain a bit of clarity after tomorrow’s New Moon.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Focusing on your career may require all the energy you have now as the goal-oriented Capricorn Moon enters your 10th House of Status. You are more concerned with your own plans today than with the opinions of anyone else. However, you might not be able to reach your objectives without the help of others. Don’t be so narrow-minded that you exclude your co-workers from sharing in your success.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Although you may have a concrete idea about how to complete your work, it might be smarter to finalize your plans today than actually execute them. Your intuition tells you to move beyond your normal routines and to try new things, but it’s more important now to rely on your unwavering common sense. Blending your current vision with your practicality and patience creates an unbeatable combination.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

It’s irritating when something comes along in your life that’s significant enough to anchor you to one spot for a while, especially if your attention is drawn elsewhere. But reality has an important lesson to teach you now, so don’t let your attention wander. Stay focused on your feelings, even if it’s challenging to integrate them into your life. The emotional dust will begin to settle by the weekend and you’ll be able to move on.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your current commitments to others may interfere with the fulfillment of your own emotional needs today. It might be wise to just set aside your desires for a few days while you do whatever is expected of you. Your efforts to stabilize personal and business relationships can bring you more happiness in the weeks ahead than anything you try to do for yourself now, anyway. Nurturing those you love does your own heart good.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Put away your playthings and get out your tools and determination because you have chores to do and you might as well take your work seriously. Although you may be annoyed by the arduous tasks in front of you, tackle each job willingly with a can-do attitude. A couple of days of hard work should be enough to free you up to enjoy a weekend of relaxation and recreation.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The simplest pleasures are the most memorable ones now, yet you can still fulfill your need for fun while you are working. Unfortunately, you don’t take too kindly to anyone telling you how to do your job. Of course, your idea of the best way to approach a task will work just fine. However, you could easily miss the chance to enjoy a special connection with someone today if you’re not willing to receive constructive feedback. Listening to the advice of others offers you more options and demonstrates your willingness to be a team player.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might feel the stress today as you try balancing your work with the emotional needs of friends and family. Although you cannot walk away from your job, responsibilities may be calling you back home. Schedule your time in advance so you can divide your efforts between your personal and professional commitments. In the meantime, let others know that you’re simply doing the best you can.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Everyone seems to be paying extra close attention to what you say today with so many planets traveling through your 3rd House of Communication. However, it’s crucial to focus on the integrity of your actions at all times, making certain they are consistent with your thoughts or you may end up in a rather difficult position. However, the current emphasis is on production now, so you must buckle down and do what must be done. Save the speech for another day.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Low self-esteem could get in your way today as you struggle against the limitations of your current job. This frustration might not be a new one, but it continues to surface again when outside pressures build. If you are financially stressed, consider how your feelings of self-worth might be impacting your bank account now. This is an opportune time to establish realistic goals and then develop an ambitious plan to achieve them.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may be approaching what appears to be the end of a road and you’re trying to determine where to go next. Even if you’re ready to charge ahead, unfinished business needs to be completed before you can see around the next bend. Try not to look too far ahead until after tomorrow’s New Moon; instead, do everything you can to make this day as positive and productive as possible.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your dreams may be so vivid now that it’s difficult to distinguish them from reality. One inner voice reminds you of the beauty inherent in the spiritual and metaphysical approach to life. Another voice confronts you with the hard facts of your present situation. You shouldn’t ignore your responsibilities, even if you prefer to be alone with your thoughts now. Shift back and forth between these two worlds as needed until you find the right balance.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A team of co-workers or a group of friends places so many demands on you now that it could be hard to find any time away from the noise of social interactions. It’s crucial to show up and let your feelings be known today, even if they differ from everyone else’s. However, once you’ve stated your position, be prepared to go along with the pack. Ironically, demonstrating your cooperative spirit gives you the opportunity for personal expression later on.

Your Daily I Ching Hexagram for Jan. 7th – 49: Revolutionary Change

49: Revolutionary Change

Monday, Jan 7th, 2013

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

According to Chinese symbolism, the juxtaposed elements of this hexagram are fire under water. Fire evaporates water, and water puts out fire. Change can cause conflict; conflict brings about change. This hexagram refers to that time in the cycle of human affairs when things need stirring up, and when the hint of dramatic change is in the air.

In order to succeed, revolutionary change must be in alignment with certain unchanging laws. The process must begin at the right moment, gather support from a broad base of people, be guided by sincere and capable leadership and — most important of all — must address a real need. The strength of the forces of change will always be in proportion to the urgency of the need being championed. This is true whether the revolution is in government, in business, in education or in one’s personal affairs.

Revolutionary change points to a time when chaos arises from order. It is important to realize that not all order is good, not all chaos bad. Chaos, in fact, is an integral part of the way of things — as any parent (and modern science) will confirm. Have the courage to radically change and renew the way you present yourself. In this way, you can summon chaos to your cause, and you will unleash a new power on your behalf. If engaging in a negotiation, change the rules; if composing a piece of music, add the unexpected; if courting a lover, dare to be unconventional.

In periods of drought, even wild storms are preferable to yet another sunny day.

Your Daily I Ching Hexagram for Jan. 1 is 54: Careful Affection

54: Careful Affection

Tuesday, Jan 1st, 2013

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

Affection is the basis of all lasting relationships, but must be channeled properly in order to bring satisfaction, and support the self-esteem of both parties. For example, a married person’s lover would necessarily have conflicted feelings: affection coupled with insecurity. Relationships based mainly on personal attraction, especially those that are outside the mainstream, require special caution and tactful reserve.

If you assert yourself too much, or try to make yourself indispensable, you will only incur misfortune. It is never easier to make disastrous mistakes than when you venture outside the bounds of propriety. If you are in doubt as to whether you should follow your heart or your head, allow for some time to pass, and perhaps the answer will become clear. Initiating any action could bring misfortune. Do not attempt to be too creative or attract favorable attention at this time.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Dec 26th is Patience

5: Patience

Wednesday, Dec 26th, 2012

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

A fisherman can cast the line, but he can only wait for the fish to bite. Your catch will come in its own time; you cannot make it hurry to you — neither by working, nor by planning, nor by wishing. You may need to provide nourishment or support for others; but only through patience can you become the bridge between the fickle fish and the eventual feast. Strength in a time of trial waits quietly, resolutely. Weakness grows agitated, and abandons the effort before the fish bites. Periods of waiting are most fruitful when used for quiet contemplation.

Proceed cautiously, but resolutely, with whatever you are doing. The time and situation are calling for consistency and patience. Waiting is an essential skill; patience is a powerful force. Good timing is an ally of those with inner strength — the kind of strength that allows you to be uncompromisingly honest with yourself, while sticking to the path you have charted. If you persevere with a positive attitude, time weakens even the hardest obstacles. To rush anything, or impatiently force results, stimulates resistance and causes setbacks. At best, you achieve surface changes — the kind that can just as quickly be reversed. Steadfast waiting — while holding to your integrity leads to slow but permanent improvements. In the end, you accomplish something great. Practice patience.

Your I Ching Hexagram for December 19th is 14: Abundant Blessings

14: Abundant Blessings

Wednesday, Dec 19th, 2012

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

Supreme success! Like the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, a person whose fortunes have turned for the better shines as bright. At the core of this success lies unselfishness and modesty, for it is the tendency of a flexible or yielding nature to bind powerful forces to it, particularly when prosperity begins to manifest. When power is wielded with grace and dignity, there is supreme success and great abundance!

Ah, but be careful. Along with any accumulation of wealth or influence can come pride and arrogance. Fight such tendencies if you intend to continue enjoying your bliss. Stay attentive enough to manage your affairs well. And remember that while material prosperity certainly beats the alternative, it is only one of many elements of a satisfying life.

 

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Dec. 13th is 10: Treading Carefully

10: Treading Carefully

Thursday, Dec 13th, 2012

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

People of ability find their way and make progress even in difficult circumstances. Consider your steps carefully when you are surrounded by changing forces. Weak and strong forces (or people) can co-exist when the weaker element does not impose upon the stronger, when the weaker maintains good humor and avoids taking bold action. When treading among sleeping tigers — or slippery stones — step gingerly and don’t stumble.

In the company of strong, brash people, rushing wildly ahead brings misfortune. Now is not a good time for taking the initiative; rather, try getting by with a little grace and good humor. In the court of a powerful king, the jester often has more power than the prince.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, December 13th

It’s easy to talk about making changes today, yet it may be challenging to put our plans into action. The cavalier Sagittarius New Moon at 3:41 am EST encourages taking risks to break out of a monotonous routine. Progressive Uranus turns direct to shake things up even more, but the Moon’s shift into conservative Capricorn at 4:42 pm reveals resistance. Nevertheless, keeping our options open just might prevent the world from turning inside out.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The Sagittarius New Moon activates your 9th House of Future Vision, opening your mind to all the possibilities ahead. But no matter what you imagine, the next few days will likely unfold differently than you expect. Don’t worry about changing your strategy yet. Just be thankful for the little progress you make, even if it seems as if you aren’t getting any closer to your goals. You may look back happily on these days when you realize how much you actually accomplished.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might make a tactical error if you’re moving too fast today, so take your time when dealing with an important issue. The big-thinking Sagittarius New Moon falls in your 8th House of Deep Sharing, inspiring you to be radically honest in your relationships. However, you may become so enamored with the big picture that you could leave out a critical detail. Be methodical and cover all your bases just in case.

About Gemini

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

The independent Sagittarius New Moon is in your 7th House of Others, where it can stress a variety of partnerships. Even an intimate relationship that seems stable should be given additional attention now to revitalize it. Your perspective is shifting, but attempting to control the changes is not a viable game plan. Instead, focus on the potential for success rather than worrying about what might go wrong.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You may have high hopes about accomplishing a lot today, but unrealistic work goals could set you up for discouragement as the visionary Sagittarius New Moon lands in your 6th House of Employment. Scaling back makes sense, since biting off more than you can chew won’t necessarily make you any more productive. Breaking your tasks down into little steps enables you to rise above your current tendency to promise too much.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your most creative ideas can carry you beyond your expectations as long as you’re having fun while the outgoing Sagittarius New Moon is in your 5th House of Play. Don’t be afraid to show all your cards now, for there’s really no reason to keep anything hidden. Either you will get what you want or you won’t. Accept the consequences of your actions and move on to what is next when the time is right.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Today’s Sagittarius New Moon in your 4th House of Security offers a fresh start with respect to home and family issues. However, you must be sure that your current direction is consistent with your long-term goals. Don’t ignore your heart’s desire, even if it seems totally irrational. Trust your gut instincts now because the answers you seek won’t come from logical analysis.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The Sagittarius New Moon excites your 3rd House of Immediate Environment, prompting you to feel as if your schedule is spinning out of control because you have so many commitments. You still may be busy even if you cancel an appointment or withdraw from a social activity. But the hectic energy can also be fun now. Don’t worry; the intensity will settle down. In the meantime, make the most of the momentum while it lasts.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may find your core values being called into question as today’s Sagittarius New Moon falls in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. Although someone else’s actions could trigger issues that raise your concern, there’s a chance that others might actually be following your lead. Keep in mind that no one else can make you feel better about who you are; your self-worth must come from within.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your life is continuing to transform and today’s New Moon in your sign is your ticket into the next stage of ongoing personal growth. The opportunities that are presented to you now should be received as messages directly from the heart of the cosmos. It may take time to understand the significance of current events. In the meantime, gratefully receive the gifts that arrive on your doorstep with an open heart.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Unanticipated events might throw you for a loop today, but the practical facts are ultimately more important than your idealistic visions. Nevertheless, the Sagittarius New Moon falls in your 12th House of Fantasy, indicating that your dreams have something crucial to teach you now, too. Don’t ignore what you don’t understand or life could become more confusing. But once you accept that there are no fast answers, you may grow in ways that make you wiser and stronger.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The Sagittarius New Moon occurs in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals today, leading you into the future by shining the light of awareness on to your hopes. Thankfully, you’re being guided now by your own inspiring thoughts. You possess great potential to see possibilities that were previously hidden, but your commitment is required. Keep your eyes open and focus on the road ahead rather than looking in the rear view window, reminiscing about the past.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your career objectives are shifting today as the Sagittarius New Moon stimulates your 10th House of Status. Even if you’re eager for the upcoming changes to start, don’t overdo your reaction to what’s happening. Taking it slowly and steadily works to your advantage as you navigate this tricky bend in the road. Don’t become too attached to your present path, for you may need to modify your course as you go.

Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, November 27th

It’s an emotionally powerful day that can prompt conflict as warrior Mars and intense Pluto hook up in a show of passion. This fiery conjunction incites volcanic eruptions of feelings and struggles for control. Fear of loss makes matters worse unless we pay attention to our unconscious reactions because the determined Taurus Moon encourages us to be stubborn. Thankfully, the atmosphere lightens when the Moon enters flighty Gemini at 7:58 pm EST.

 

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your ruling planet warrior Mars aligns today with penetrating Pluto, bringing up previously hidden emotions that might seem to come out of nowhere. However, anger springs forth from the depths of your subconscious mind; it’s yours and you must own it. Avoidance tactics won’t work. Be smart and share your hurt feelings so that your negativity doesn’t turn into resentment. Bringing everything out into the light gives everyone a chance to process things and move on.

 

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You could accidentally say something that upsets a friend today. Unfortunately, good intentions are not enough to get you through this tricky intersection. You will have to reach into your heart and find a way to express your feelings, however deeply they may be buried. Watch your tendency toward being stubborn, for inflexibility won’t help when it comes to love. You must show courage and widen your perspective, even if you believe you already know the truth.

 

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Even if you try to gingerly tiptoe around a delicate situation, a friend or partner may still present you with an unsolvable emotional problem today. It is unlikely that the tension will settle back down until you face the music. You must roll with the incoming waves of emotions now, but remember that you’ll be feeling more at ease in just a few days. Don’t withdraw, as you can learn a lot about yourself from others at this time.

 

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Relationships can be a source of pain now, yet opening your heart in the presence of potential hurt could earn the rewards of intimacy. This is not an easy process, for your tendency is to protect your sensitive feelings from being wounded. Showing your vulnerability to someone you love is the first step on the journey to healing today.

 

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your energy may be so flamboyant now that it can get in the way of your well-meant intentions. Others might not have the fortitude to stand up to your emotional onslaught today, allowing you to steamroll right over them. You are slated to become victorious in a hard-fought battle, but you could be the long-term loser unless you honor what others are feeling, too. Listen closely so that you can establish common goals that allow everyone to play a part.

 

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You are on a wild emotional ride now as you feel the passion one moment and then detachment the next. These extreme feelings might be quite upsetting; it’s important to get enough perspective on what’s happening so you don’t go too far over the edge today. Try to stay in the middle of the road, for that is where you can best respond to the oncoming changes.

 

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might be facing a power struggle in your immediate environment today that involves coworkers or family members. It may begin harmlessly enough, but by the time you realize what’s happening, someone has already made their move. As counterintuitive as it seems, relinquishing control now could benefit you in the long run. Don’t take on any battles that you cannot win.

 

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your two ruling planets, Pluto and Mars, are quite capable of fighting when they must. Today, these two planets come together to teach you another lesson about intensity, although you are no stranger to strong feelings. On one hand, this can turn on your love light, but on the other hand, you could become dangerously distant. Above all, use your focused willpower to keep your good intentions intact.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Today’s alignment of hot-headed Mars and cold-blooded Pluto in your 2nd House of Self Esteem reminds you that not every thought is light and optimistic. Be strong now and reach into the dark and mysterious realms to discover the real magic. Even if you are frightened of what you don’t understand, remember that the unknown transforms into an important ally as your awareness grows.

 

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are showing your battle scars now with great pride as the Mars-Pluto conjunction occurs in your 1st House of Personality. You want everyone to know what you have endured to survive and thrive. But others are not eager to look at your old emotional wounds — and rightly so. Go ahead and say what you need in order to clear the air today, but then be ready to move on. Stay in the present moment, rather than dwelling in your past.

 

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Social interactions are a source of unavoidable intensity today. Although you certainly gain a lot from conversations with friends, there is a severe price to pay. You may be required to set aside an important part of yourself now just to participate with the group. Be careful not to hold on to any annoyances or past regrets. It’s up to you to let go of whatever stands between you and happiness.

 

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Someone’s power play might sweep you up in a volatile drama today, yet if your intentions are for the higher good you could come out a winner. Navigation can be a bit tricky, though, for as soon as you act with selfish motivations you will lose. However, if you keep the health of your family — or even the entire community — as your top priority, then you’ll be able to move mountains on your way to great success.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, November 25th

We might wish for a day of peace and quiet, but we’re likely to stir up some excitement today even if we don’t do it on purpose. The Moon’s shift into sensual Taurus at 7:18 am EST reminds us that simple pleasures can be delightful. Unfortunately, magnetic Venus forms an anxious aspect to erratic Uranus to destabilize our emotions. It’s crucial to accept our limitations, even if jumping into a distracting social activity sounds like a lot of fun.

 

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You want to break free from scheduling restraints today, even if it means letting someone down. However, it might not be the smartest time to resist fulfilling your social obligations, even if it feels like a matter of principle. Instead of taking a stand, consider the other person’s perspective before doing something you cannot undo. You don’t have to turn your world upside down to prove a point; change will come soon enough.

 

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

The Moon’s return to your sign is usually enough to settle you down; however, you’re not quite sure what your heart wants now. Relationships are a mixed blessing today. On one hand; you desire to be closer to someone you love. But on the other hand, you don’t like the complications that currently come along with the deal. Instead of trying to decide on an immediate course of action, let your feelings sit for another day or two because your dilemma will likely resolve on its own.

 

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Instead of revealing what you want today, you might try to cover your desires by keeping yourself busy with an endless stream of little projects. Methodically moving from one task to another can distract you as long as you stay in motion, but your dissatisfaction rises to the surface as soon as you stop. The work will get done somehow, so leave time to share your fantasies with someone you trust.

 

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s wonderful when you can enjoy yourself socially, but having a friend you can rely on is more important now than having a playmate. Unfortunately, those closest to you might disapprove of your more serious side because they want to have fun today. Don’t fake it by pretending everything is OK if it’s not. You will feel better once your needs are acknowledged and supported. Connecting on a deeper level is more satisfying in the long run.

 

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your friends and family members are able to talk to you about their concerns today because you seem to be able to take everything in stride. The unflappable Taurus Moon is highlighting your 10th House of Social Responsibility now, empowering you to take charge of a situation. Don’t wait for others to act first; if you know what needs to be done, get started right away and lead by example. Others will appreciate your drive and follow in your footsteps.

 

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

No matter how patient you have been these past few weeks, you’re champing at the bit today. However, you may need to wait for just a few more days. Allow yourself to feel your frustration, but don’t let your impatience run the show. Take this time to fine-tune your plans; the more you are prepared for next week, the smoother the road to success.

 

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may try to stretch your pennies now because you don’t have enough cash to do everything you want to do. But instead of succumbing to feelings of low self-esteem, acknowledge the gifts you bring to any partnership. It’s easy to get discouraged about a lack of resources today, but you have a lot more than money to offer in a relationship. Focus on your creative assets instead of the material ones.

 

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may appear cool and aloof, but that’s not how you’re feeling today. It’s more likely that someone has not been listening to you and you’re tired of running into the same old wall of resistance. Rather than expressing what’s on your mind just like previous times, you’re considering what extreme measures it will take in order to be heard. Be patient; a major breakthrough is on the horizon.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It would be fine with you if you could do everything today exactly like you did last week. The idea of familiarity sounds comforting, but you still may get bored very quickly. Unfortunately, you don’t know whether to bite the bullet and keep things simple or push against the status quo and let others know about your dissatisfaction. Going to extremes only makes matters worse now. Relax; it will be easier to initiate your desired changes later in the week.

 

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You want to show your friends how much you need them now, but you might be afraid of being rejected today. Don’t turn the present moment into some kind of test; you could be sorely disappointed if you do. Instead, temporarily downplay your desires for the sake of strengthening a relationship today. You’ll be in a better position tomorrow to reveal your vulnerability.

 

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You could really use a day at home to rest. You might even consider canceling your plans so you can retreat from your social responsibilities. But your desires may need to be set aside in order to fulfill your family obligations. Do what you must to take care of those you love now; you’ll have time later on for the relaxation you deserve.

 

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
