Introduction for the Year of the Thunder-Rabbit

Dear Akhaldanner,                                                                              Amsterdam, 3-2-2011

We are glad to present to you the 29th AKHALDAN I CHING CALENDAR showing the Chinese Year of the Thunder-Rabbit 2011. This year starts on Thursday the 3rd of February 2011 at 2:13 A.T. (Amsterdam Time) and ends on Monday the 23rd of January 2012 at 6:54 A.T.

The Moon in the upper right corner of the little squares (vector)  is not shown every day, only when Moon enters in a new star sign and you can see when Luna 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 you more space to make your own notations.

The Chinese star sign Rabbit is the Chinese equivalence of the western star sign Phisces meaning ; 

Withdrawal, retreat, unconsciousness, dissolvation, contemplation, dematerialisation, reincarnation, world escaping, vanishing, dream world and isolated community.

A Rabbit is Yin, feminine,  good-natured, soft. It is governed by Neptune = unconsciousness The colour is light-green and the tune is ‘Fis’ .

A year of final testing, illusions, burning of karmas interactions and struggle with the sub consciousness ,threshold of new levels of consciousness.

This year is governed by the I Ching Hexagram 27 (thunder below; mountain  above):

Providing nourishment

The Judgement

Pay head to nourishing what is right and in what one seeks to nourish oneself.

As heaven and Earth nourish all beings, so a holy sage nourishes  men of worth;

And thereby, reaches the whole people.

The image

Within the calm mountain, thunder stirs.

As God comes forth in THE AROUSING, and perfects in tranquil KEEPING STILL,

So the wise man tranquil in movement

Lao Tse says about number 27:

A good walker leafs no tracks; a good speaker makes no slips;

A good reckoner needs no tally;

a good door needs no lock, yet no one can open it.

Good binding requires no knots, yet no one can loosen it.

Therefore the sage takes care of all men and abandons no one.

He takes care of all things and abandons nothing.

This is called “following the light”.

What is a good man? A teacher of a bad man.

What is a bad man. A good man charge.

If the teacher is not respected, and the student not cared for,

Confusion will arise, however clever one is.

This is the crux of mystery.

Secret Dakini Oracle 27 = magic carpet =  positive influence of the Occult, influence of forces, transport and delight, change of residence, development.

Slogans for this year are:

1. “What the mouth enters and exits, makes the Human”.

2. “The Homo Sapience has become a stinking sock, instead of unloading his feet on Mother Earth and sea sand”.

3. “That which is internally rotten (corrupt), will collapse, when the Storm comes!”

AKHALDAN is an astro-ecological society of learned beings like you and me.

Akh means Heaven, Al is God and Dan signifies the Here and Now.
