One Minute Wisdom

BAFTA: surprises and more surprises

Sunday night's award ceremony in London for the BAFTAs threw up some certainties and indeed uncertainties from an I Ching Astrology perspective.

2009 is a 9 Fire Year which means that everyone's Stars migrated to a new position last week on 4 February.

Winning positions during a Fire Year are the East and the Southeast. The least likely positions to gain recognition would be the North or the Northeast as these are dormant this year. True to form Kate Winslett - her 7 Lake Star is in the East - and Danny Boyle - his 8 Mountain Star is in the Southeast - celebrated with major gongs.

However the unpredictable Mickey Rourke, deep in the stillness of the North East, scooped best actor. And that, wonderfully enough, is the Yin and the Yang of it. The Greeks called it "enantiodromia" - when things move to an extreme they suddenly switch to the opposite, as in when things seem impossibly bad, the tables turn and everything works out for the best.

Keep following the Tao, Mickey!

A quick look at the new 9 Fire Year: it will bring insight, clarity and changes worldwide. From the relative coolness and stagnation that 1 Water influence brought in 2008 , I believe that the 9 Fire Year will bring about major shifts in global consciousness which will promote clarity and common sense. And as a result we will see credible and progressive change where it has been needed for a long, long time.

What is I Ching Astrology?

I Ching Astrology is the most ancient astrological system. Over 5,000 years old, it shares the same heritage and philosophy as the I Ching, the world's oldest book.

As ancient as it is, it is simple to use. You can easily find out:

  • About yourself and the others in your life
  • How best to spend your time and direct your energy in any given month or year
  • The most advantageous places to be in

Deeply rooted in nature, I Ching Astrology was once known as the farmers' almanac. Its signs are named after the elements, the seasons and other imagery from the natural world. Scientists are convinced the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching anticipated the genetic code.

It's amazing influence further extends into the digital age, the father of computer code Gotfried Leibnitz developed the binary system from his study of the I Ching.

Without it, almost unbelievably, you would not be reading this on your computer screen today.

Now with I Ching Astrology, you can start to decode the significance of your Birth Star and your life as it unfolds.
