In the first half, astrologer Mark Lerner shared astrological pointers concerning 2014, and the near future, as well as discussed various principles of astrology. There's a trinity of events on New Year's day 2014, he announced-- Libra rising, a new moon, and the sun lining up on the zodiac with Pluto (the planet of the underworld). "Things that are buried, things that we've pushed below the surface throughout all the realms, in economics, in politics, in education, in religion, in government. All the things we don't want to look at are going to come up. Kind of like Pandora's Box-- an explosion of negativity," he noted. But if we tap into "lightworking," and become agents of goodwill as the new year starts, we can combat some of this, he suggested.
Lerner expressed particular concern over cyberwarfare attacks against nuclear facilities, water treatment plants, and other related places during 2014, as well as possible disruptive solar activity, since the last year the sun was so quiet. He also cited significant astrological dates in 2014-- March 13th, when Pluto will first be in opposition to America's sun, and April 20-24th, when there will be a grand cross of planets (Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto).
In the latter half, expert in Feng shui and other empowering modalities such as holistic medicine, aromatherapy and astrology, Ellen Whitehurst, talked about the various ways we can clear our space and get ready for having a lucky and prosperous new year. A person's mindset has a strong effect on luck-- by shifting away from negative thinking, and expecting to be lucky, rather than that bad things are going to happen, you can change your personal landscape, she said. Further, one can spend time visualizing their goals, writing them down, or creating a vision board, "where you literally have a visual intention in front of you to remind you of what it is you want to create in your life," she continued.
The practice of Feng shui relates to the idea that your immediate environment has a huge influence and impact on what is going on inside you, she explained. In that regard, when you open the front door of your home, the first thing that you see should be something that makes you happy or feel better, and there should be no clutter in the area, Whitehurst detailed. Similarly, the last thing you look at before you go to sleep, and the first thing you see when you wake up should be something inspirational that validates what you want in life, she stated. New Year's day is a good time to open all your doors and windows (even for just a brief period) to remove all the old, stuck energy, and bring in healthy new energy or chi, she added. Whitehurst also shared tips on how truckers can use Feng shui in their trucks.
