Elemental New Year, Feb 4th
with a New Aquarius Moon,

Time to now  wave goodbye the year of the loyal Earth Dog, not be seen again for another 60 years. And ‘Hello’ to the New Year of the productive Yellow Earth Boar 4-5th February, and the start of a year that highlights steadfast patience, fertility, and the potential for great tranquillity.

The Pig/Boar is the 12th animal sign in the Asian system, indicating the end of a twelve year cycle before starting anew next year with the year of the Metal Rat. Thus there is something already final about the Boar, who is often associated with the courageous Goddess of Life, Death & rebirth. Indeed, in Ancient Egypt, Goddess Isis appeared as a Sow, while the Pig was connected to Set, powerful Lord of the underworld. The Boar is seen as a mighty psychopomp that guides passing souls; even the historical Buddha died after eating pork in his 80th year.

Known to be fierce, intelligent and independent, the Wild Boar is considered a sacred totem in various cultures around the world, from Adonis to Warrior Celts across Ireland and France honoured ‘Moccus’, a protector for hunters (also associated with Mercury). And ‘Cerridwen’, a Celtic Moon Goddess, with prophetic powers and a magic cauldron of inspiration, is represented by the Sacred Sow; she rules the night, astrology, science, poetry, knowledge and herbs. In India, ‘Varaha’ (the male Boar) is the 3rd avatar, sacred incarnation of Vishnu, the cosmic ‘Preserver’. ‘Varahi Devi’ is the Shakti, one of the Matrikas who support the protector Goddess Durga. In the Tibetan tradition, ‘Vajra Varahi’, is the ‘Diamond Sow’, a formidable secret tantric Goddess, semi-wrathful in aspect and deeply insightful in the development of wisdom.

In Tibetan Elemental astrology, the Boar is straightforward and amiable, if slightly naïve and often greedy; the Earth Boar year is one of transformation and perfection. As in the Chinese tradition, the Pig/Boar appreciates having money and food and, by keeping ambitions simple, can also enjoy tangible success.    

Thus we have a year that has a distinctly feminine influence, as the Sow dedicates her life to others, generously feeding and nurturing in abundance. The devoted Female Boar provides spiritual and material sustenance and solace in a crisis, determined to remain connected to natures’ bounty and the natural goodness of the Earth. It’s also said the year of the Earth Pig is one of goodwill –> May it be so!

Though indicated how one’s own animal year has obstacles, there are still good prospects for the Boar to overcome challenges, especially in business. Generally speaking, it’s a good year for Goat/Sheep and Rabbit. And a tricky one for Tiger and Dog, though easier for Dragons, who are always magically super smooth; and a hectic year (of travel) for the Snake; and for the Monkey and Rooster to solve difficulties by teaming up with others and being mindfully diplomatic.   


I wish all a beautiful and fruitful, very happy year of the Earth Boar!
