Happy New Year – Welcome “Thunder-Horse”


Dear  Akhaldanner,                                                                                                         Amsterdam, 18 October 2013


                We are glad to present to you the 32nd  AKHALDAN I CHING CALENDAR, showing the Chinese Year of the Thunder-Horse 2014.

This year starts on Thursday the 30th of January 2014 at 21,20 A.T .(Amsterdam Time)    and ends on  Tuesday the 20th of January 2015. A short Chinese astrological year!

 Attention: The Moon in the upper right corner of the little squares (vector)  is not shown every day, only when  enters in a new star sign. You can see when  is enlightened . When the same I Ching Hexagram happens the next day, with the same line functioning and the Moon  in the same star sign, it is not repeated and shown.  Gives me more space to write down the oracle’s judgement (which specific line comes into existence) of that specific day!

                The Chinese star sign  Horse is the Chinese equivalence of the western star sign  Sagitarrius I meaning: Long travelling, life opinion, ideals, religion, wisdom, tolerance, open-mindedness, philosophy, expansion, university, other cultures. This year will express a lot of Samsara (0 till days).  The Time Spirit is low from February 2014 till the 19th of July 2014 and in October and beginning of December 2014! Very high in August, September  2014 and January 2015, with even 7 stars days enlightened!

  So important: Be receptive and in they heart, withdraw into the inner Self. It is a time where the good has to hide and the bad one’s dictate, as it seems! But not for long (see January 2015)  A Horse is  bright-minded, wants insight, wisdom, to graze the horizons, travel long, see other cultures  and therefore very impatient. This year is Yang, outgoing, philosophical.  It is governed by the planet  Jupiter V = Expansion, growth.

The colour is purple and the tune is la ( A ).

                So this will be a year of gaining wisdom, meeting other cultures and at the end enlightening! .

            This year is governed by the I Ching Hexagram

                     51   (thunder below; thunder above )

 The arousing


The Judgement


 Thunder comes, spreading terror afar,

but shock also brings success and joy,

for now is the time of reverence.

As God comes forth in THE AROUSING.


The image


 Thunder repeated: the image of shock.

Thus in fear and trembling,

the wise man examines himself

to set his life in order and to shape it.


Lao Tse says about number 51


 All things arise from Tao. They are nourished by Virtue.

They are formed from matter. They are shaped by environment.

Thus the ten thousand things all respect Tao and honor Virtue.

Respect of Tao and honor of Virtue are not demanded,

But they are in the nature of things.

Therefore all things arise from Tao. By Virtue they are nourished,

 developed, cared for, sheltered, comforted, grown and protected.

Creating without claiming, doing without taking credit,

Guiding without interfering.

This is primal Virtue.


Secret Dakini Oracle  51 =  :   The Path of the Self related to Psyche evolution, abandoning of restrictions made by the ego, adaptation, unconscious motivations.
