Happy New Year 2019

Dear Akhaldanner,

We are glad to present to you the

37th AKHALDAN I CHING-DAKINI CALENDAR

showing the Chinese Year of the Fire-Swine 2019.

This year starts on Thursday the 4th of February 2019 at 21:45 A.T. (Amsterdam Time)

and ends on Monday the 24th of January 2020 at 22:44 A.T.

This year will be on the same low level as the Year of the Fire-Dog, very low, down to Earth, with on many days only one or two stars enlightened. Even zero star days appearing! See for further information www.akhaldan.info the Tree of Life! This means also that for a long time, even months, the same I Ching Hexagram and Dakini number is happening! Very unusual! The Chinese star sign Swine is the Chinese equivalence of the Western star sign cancer. This sign is governed by the Moon, the first water sign, meaning: Yin, collective unconsciousness, meditation, reflection, family traditions, relations, possibilities, opportunities, arche-life. The weak organ for this year is the stomach, the hara and digestion. Honesty is the special characteristic of this animal.

The colour of the Swine is violet and the tune is Si (B).

This year of the Fire-Swine is governed by the I Ching Hexagram 22:

Fire below/ Mountain above

Grace; Adornment

The Judgement

Grace means adornment, beauty of form. Graceful form is right in small matters.

The Image

Clarity within and quiet without: The wise man has time for meditation.
Lao Tse says about 22 : Yield and overcome; bend and be straight; Empty and be full; Wear out and be new; Have little and gain; Have much and be confused. Therefore wise men embrace the one and set an example to all. Not putting on a display, they shine forth. Not justifying themselves, they are distinguished. Not boasting, they receive recognition Not bragging, they never falter. They do not quarrel, so no one quarrels with them. Therefore the ancients say: “Yield and overcome” Is that an empty saying? Be really whole and all things will come to you.

The Secret Dakini Oracle 22: “Mother’s milk”

Spiritual homelonging; the desire to return to the source of all things; Aspiration for non-duality. . “ AKHALDAN ” is an astro-ecological society of learned beings like you and me, founded in Amsterdam since May 1983 year of the Pig.. Akh means Heaven, Al is God and Dan signifies the Here and Now. In Dutch (hemeltjegodhiernogaantoe). Well dear cosmic conscious friends may this calendar be a guide in this meditative, familiar, intimate, beautiful and honest year of the Fire-Swine Sarvamangalam ( all sentient beings are happy) m.m.a.hermans@gmail.com ; www.akhaldan.info You can get a PDF copy of this calendar by contacting the above email or website
The “Universal Tao” of the Chinese Year of the Violet Fire-Pig 2019 Hexagram 22 Fire; Light (Red) below/ Mountain; Keeping still (Orange) above This year, as you can see in this calender, is very special looking at the amount of stars enlightened! We see many days with only one or two stars enlightened, even zero star days appear. That means that for a long time, even more than a month, the same I Ching Hexagram or Dakini number is manifesting. A long time the same Oracle with judgement and image. On the lowest level of the tree of life means earth, the animalistic reincarnation of the human beings (see the Tree of Life furtheron in this calendar). Going from instincts, physical-animalistic energies, own interest, individualistic ideals, earthly business to physical human happenings, materialistic ideals. “Down to Earth” as you could say. It means also that the First three lines of the I Ching Hexagram number 22 “Adornment” is often coming to life and reincarnating itself on the Universal level. That means it is a kind of background Music for the whole year, while at the specific days the individual Tao comes into existence. On a zero star ( . ) day the First line of the I Ching Hexagram comes into existence; on a one star day ( * ) the second line; on a two star day ( ** ) the third …etc. Grace; Adornment

The Judgement Grace means adornment, beauty of form. Graceful form is right in small matters.

The Image Clarity within and quiet without: The wise man has time for meditation.

Nine at the first place means ( . ): “One leaves the carriage and walks”. Go on with your own strength and avoid false appearance, doubtful contacts or flashy behaviour. Simplicity is true. Only in to be you are really great. Six at the 2nd place means ( * ): “He preens his beard. It wags with his chin”. Adornment for the sake of itself has no value for you now. It is pure beautification Beautiful clothes, beautiful woman? Strong gestures, strong man? Test yourself if you are not really more beautiful and strong. Nine at the 3rd place means ( ** ): “He who has grace must still persevere”. You exist now in a moment of perfect beauty, while you are living an enchanting life. Be aware of indolence. The inner and outer are in harmony. You know who you are and are what you know. Is that enough for you. Is it sufficient to exist only for yourself? Six at the 4th place means ( *** ): “Grace or simplicity? One must be true”. You can choose from 2 directions, the way of beautification and outer shine or the way of simplicity and inner value. Stay faithful to your line, which led you to success. “A white Pegasus does not need golden hooves”. Six at the 5th place means ( **** ): “One seeks grace in the heights, but one’s gift is meagre. Humiliation. Yet if one is sincere one will be blessed”. Too much modest appearance neglect your value. Do something. Shape your values and do not exaggerate. You live in a nice, comfortable surrounding and value the poetic site of life, although you are practical and realistic. Nine at the top means ( ):”Simple grace. No blame”. It is all about simple and useful forms, shapes. In other people you value inner sincerity and simplicity. At the highest state of development all ornaments are discarded ( * ) Christmass 2019 gives the enlightened state of existence!.
