So the snake has all but disappeared - thank heavens say some of us. I have had a very interesting year, and those of you who have been following the monthly updates will agree there were a lot of serious world events which involved fire and tragedies particularly with trains.
On the diplomatic front very peculiar events have taken place. On one hand the world reached agreement with Syria to surrender their weapons of mass destruction (how to collect and dispose of them was another thing). On the other hand the Snowdon revelations have created some serious problems for countries including Australia and the United States of America.
America saw the financial disaster averted at the 11th hour in the month of the dog (16th October 2013). This crisis was a constant threat to the US (and Global) economy through the previous 12 months.
Australia went to an election in August, right on the cusp of the monkey and rooster months. At the time of writing there is possibly / probably going to be another election in WA to address the missing 1300+ votes that went astray in the senate election count / recount. I did predict that the election result would not be known immediately little realising that it would not be known until the 2nd of November 2013, and then possibly after another election in that senate seat in WA alone. Curiouser and curiouser said Alice.
I am personally really happy to see the back of this snake and welcome in the wood horse.
The stem is yang wood, and the branch is horse which has both fire and earth buried in it.
productive cycle - wood feeds fire
The energy of the horse is very fiery, very passionate and self-confident (sometimes overly confident). So when chutzpah is required, count on the horse to lead the pack.
2014 brings into focus fame, passion, entertainment industry, the electricity generating industry, anything that relies on or generates a flame so look at the oil and gas industries particularly. The solar panel and solar storage resources will also come into focus. As fire also governs insight or inspiration there may be some inspired solutions to world problems. We might also see innovations in attacking world health problems somewhat similar to the amazing research announced recently in the treatment of acute leaukaemia.
Yang wood can be rigid and unyielding, but like the forest, righteous and able to stand tall in the face of adversity.
The wood brings into focus the forest industries, legal issues, newspapers, beauty, grains and agriculture, books and writing. These industries will be in focus for the first half of the year. They will flourish, but there can be controversy and litigation as a result of unyielding and rigid attitudes.
The wood horse
The wood horse will bring us some respite from pettiness, hidden things arising from under-ground, from sudden and violent actions. The wood horse is more about glamour, fame and 'display'. Expect to see a greater focus on the wealthy, glamorous and famous, but will also see improvement in personal productivity.
Writing, writers, beauty, passion, romance, love and fame, eyes, and face will also be in the spotlight.
There is a danger that the horse will be so charged up that he forgets that there is another day tomorrow and will not conserve his energies in a prudent way.
do your emotions manage your life
A very good year to learn to manage your emotions, particularly if they are often running your life. Meditation, Tai Chi, Chi Gong, calming and soothing things are needed to balance us.

Through the month of January I again bring you 20 days of Tai Chi. We start back on the 6th of January at the Hobart Women's Health Centre in Lefroy St, North Hobart. We will be doing 5 days a week for 4 weeks except for the public holiday on the 27th of January.
It is still expected that you will do at least 3 days a week to consolidate your new skills.
Look out for a 1/2 day workshop with Jennifer Pastorino of Provence Pilates and myself.
The annual video newsletter is in two parts this year. Some email clients strip out the video's and put them at the bottom of the email so look for this or go to YouTube to view them.
Announcing some changes to the way we do things at Sauvage Feng Shui. We will be doing 3 monthly newsletters and videoblogs for the season ahead. We will not be issuing a monthly newsletter. If you want and need more information then please book a one-on-one session or attend a seminar. We can cover a lot more ground that way. I have many more writing and editing jobs on the horizon for 2014.
Our weekly blog will move to a monthly blog with some general information about the monthly energies, the monthly flying star and some general information.
To activate clashes there has to be some environmental threat. If you have sha qi coming to your door then this is regarded as being enough to activate a clash.
The horse clashes with the rat. The rat is water, the horse is fire. Water controls fire, but it is really not strong enough to entirely extinguish the fire. The rat will find his energies depleted as he is always trying to douse the fire, while the horse will be strengthened by the wood in the stem. This means that clashes will be less fierce for the horse because of his ally. It does mean that if there is a violation in the direction of the horse or the rat that special caution needs to be taken with the health and well-being of those with these 2 branches in their chart.
The second degree clash is with the ox. The ox is earth and able to absorb the chi of the horse - the horse, who is in the box seat for the year might find this clash very exhausting. For more information view the videos or attend a seminar.
The favourable combinations for 2014 are, the tiger, the dog and the secondary combination is the sheep.
This means that, if you have any of these 3 signs in your chart and they are significant, then you will find benefit from this year of the wood horse.
Sometimes when a combination comes in it can change your chart and take away something which has been causing problems or create a problem.
To know if this is going to have implications for you then you will need to know your own chart. You can book in for an update or, if you are feeling like knowing a great deal more then you might be interested in this book I am featuring.
Throughout the year I have been involved in some editing jobs and this is one of those books. If you are interested in looking more deeply into your chart then you might benefit from reading the book. You can read a full analysis of Michael Schumacher's chart mostly based on the flow technique as outlined in this book in this year's feature article.
If you are interested then you can book in for an annual personal astrology reading or follow up. The price has been reduced to $140 for a new client and $100 for a follow-up, available only until the 31st of January 2014.
2014 Do not disturb
The Tai Sui is also known as the Grand Duke of Jupiter. It is the direction where there is the greatest focus of cosmic forces. This year it is the direction of the horse or the middle 3rd of the south sector (Li Gua).
Directly opposite the Grand Duke is the Sui Po or the clash direction. It is the direction of the rat in 2014 – it is the exit point of all the sharp and glaring energy of the grand duke. This is the middle 3rd of the north sector.
These are areas which we do not disturb in 2014. Disturbance means turning soil for greater that 1 day, knocking things down, building things up. Even building a chicken coop, as it would take more than a day would be regarded as a violation. If you are NOT residing in the property then it is not a violation. If, your neighbour violates this area (relative to your main doors) it can create a great disturbance for you.
The 3 or 5 sha's will be in the north in 2014. Because the annual star is 9 flying to this sector the negative impact is less, but if there is sha qi coming through a large window, if there is a door in this location or facing this direction, or you have a rat, pig or ox in your chart then you will have to take careful measures to guard against tumultuous emotional events, or fires.
The Annual Flying Stars
Every year the stars fly in a particular path – they are on a 9 year cycle and bring grace and good fortune or can bring challenges. All nine of the stars will impact each and every building in which you live and work. When the sickness 5 or 2 strikes the door of your home or business you will find illness comes knocking bringing things that linger and won’t go away, staff relapsing, just not quite recovering.
keep productivity high through the seasons
If it flies to the door of your business, or a major expanse of glass then you will find that most of the staff will come down with the regular illnesses, but they will linger for longer periods of time as it will be very difficult to shake off. It will roll through the staff and customers.
If the star is challenging (for example the 2) we need to make adjustments to prevent it meeting with any sha qi.
Here are the stars and their palaces for 2014.

The month of February will see yang fire sitting over the tiger. The tiger will pair up with the horse of the year and they will naturally turn to producing fire. The season is wood and thus the fire will burn brightly until it consumes all the resources.

The more I read about Feng Shui, the more I realised I didn't know, so doing her workshop enabled me to understand enough to use the principles in my life.
