Happy Year Of The Horse

black_horse_running-t21January 31 2014 marks the beginning of the Year of the Wooden Horse in Chinese astrology.

By all accounts it should start with an explosion of bright ideas and enthusiasm as the exuberant Horse energy comes in. People tend to work well together in Horse years, co-operation and team work will be the way to achieve goals. It should be easier to find common ground  and interesting  solution to problems while even having a little fun in the process!
It will be interesting to see how this plays out on a global scale with the advent of social media and the ever reducing size of the global village.
With all this fresh optimism it’s easy to be impulsive and somewhat impatient, two big lessons for the Horse year, but with Wood energy encouraging  slow growth and practical solutions it should be easier to temper these impulses.
This year seems to be about embracing life in its fullest, taking chances and enjoying yourself. It promises to be a lighter year. Its all about love and respect, building and moving forward.
If your expecting, or expecting to be expecting, this year your little one will be energetic, warm and intelligent. If they don’t like something they will kick up one hell of a fight but they will love you wildly. Its hard not to think of my sister as I write this. She is born in the year of the Horse and is definitely happiest when let to run freely doing her own thing.  She will stomp her feet, toss her mane and get in a right royal huff when  she feels she’s being made to do something she doesn’t want to.
andreINactionChange began early at Quiescence with three of our practitioners leaving for some of the different opportunities that life presents. Stephaine has moved to the bluer waters of Port Macquarie while Keren will be welcoming her second child into the world soon and Sophie is embarking on a new business venture setting up her own clinic. I am very sad to see them go, but with change bring new opportunity as we welcome 2 new practitioners to the fold. Andre Tse comes to us from Portland, Oregon. He has recently spent the past five years working at the Kamalaya Koh Samui Wellness Sanctuary specialising in weight loss and burn out. And Rose Anscombe is our newest recruit, some of you may have of met her at the IVF Support Clinic where she can been seen helping out over the past few years. They are both very lovely people and excellent practitioners who are looking forward to get to know you.
