“And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you’re going to fall
Tell ’em a hookah smoking catepillar
Has given you the call”
-Jefferson Airplane, “White Rabbit“
It’s going to be a trippy year . . . I can feel it! Remember how I mentioned that I haven’t been remembering my dreams lately, because it seems I’m in uncharted territory, like I’m exploring new psychic ground and I don’t know my way yet, and the song playing in the background isn’t one I’ve heard before? Well I think it’s going to be that kind of year for everyone. Why? Because as of the New Moon on February 2nd, around 9:30 pm EST, we will start the Year of the White Rabbit!
I’m not making this up! According to Chinese Astrology, this past year was the Year of the Tiger (which was supposed to bring us a wild ride, with lots of ups and downs, and boy did it!). And as of this New Moon in Aquarius, we will start the Year of the White Metal Rabbit. While the Rabbit is a much calmer sign than the Tiger, outwardly that is, a lot goes on under the surface in Mr. Rabbit.
I predict some unforeseeable turns in the future. Like going down the rabbit hole you might not realize how things turned out the way they do! I’m not saying don’t plan for things, as you know I’m a planner, it’s just that this coming Chinese Year will be more about inner intuition than outward reality. Like any good true journey, one takes many detours before arriving where one planned to go, and sometimes one ends up where one didn’t expect to in the end! Like the dream within a dream movie “Last Year at Marienbad” we may never really know exactly what happened this coming year!
So, in honor of the upcoming year filled with unexpected mystery, here’s a “White Rabbit Chinese Lunar New Year Mix Tape!”
