Dear Akhaldanner,

We are glad to present to you the 28th AKHALDAN I CHING CALENDAR showing the Chinese Year of the Thunder-Tiger 2010.

This year starts on Sunday the 14th of February 2010 at 2:32 A.T. (Amsterdam Time) and ends on Thursday the 3rd of February 2011 at 2;13 A.T. As you can see there is another lay out! No more cards of the Tarot mentioned in the left corner down, This calendar is now only an I Ching Calendar. The Moon in the upper right corner of the little squares is not shown every day, only when enters in a new star sign and you can see when is enlightened ( ).

When the same I Ching Hexagram happens the next day, with the same line functioning and the in the same star sign, it is not repeated and shown. Instead you can see the symbol of the I Ching Hexagram with the lines and elements!

The Chinese star sign Tiger is the Chinese equivalence of the western star sign Aries meaning ; Freedom, independence, first start, operation, inventions, own experiences, own wisdom, own body, pioneer, adventurousness, new beginnings.

A Tiger is Yang, masculine, audacious. It is governed by Mars ( ) = action. The colour is red and the tune is `C’ ( do ). This year will be a propitious time for a new beginning. Trust your own energy and move with it! I rule by serving and I serve by ruling!

This year is governed by the I Ching Hexagram 24 (thunder below; earth above):

“RETURN” (the turning point)

The Judgement:

Success comes in accord with the time. Friends forgather in harmony. No blame. Now is the time to undertake something.

The image:

As thunder withdraws to its deepest rest, so kings of antiquity closed the passes; Merchants and strangers did not go about; nor did the ruler travel the provinces.

Lao Tse says about number 24:

He who stands on tiptoe is not steady.
He who strides cannot maintain the pace.
He who makes a show is not enlightened.
He who is self-righteous is not respected.
He who boasts achieves nothing.
He who brags will not endure

According to the followers of TAO

These are extra food and unnecessary luggage”.

They do not bring happiness.

Therefore followers of the TAO avoid them.


Secret Dakini Oracle 24 = SOLAR RETURN

= returning to the roots of personality, astrological influences, overcoming of obstacles through recognition

Well dear cosmic conscious friends may this calendar be a guide in this audacious, new beginning and enlightened  year of the Thunder-Tiger, manojhermans@yahoo.co.uk

Sarvamangalam (may all sentient beings be happy)
