On February 8 at 22.39 it is new moon in Beijing, the beginning of the Chinese New Year.
Happy New Year for all Chinese friends!
For them and for all who have a connection with the Chinese culture or business world, here is a quick look from the Human Design perspective into the qualities of this year of the Monkey.
The theme of this year is to explain new ways to people how to do and see things. With a 1/3 Profile this is a matter of trial and error, one is not sure if the new insights are welcome. It can be tempting to create trouble in order to be heard, but in that way others perceive you as a nuisance and your message does not come across. When you are out of sync with your audience, they will turn away and you rob yourself of the pleasure of seeing an insight well received.
Your intention is to make the world a better place, and you sense that change implies letting go of past ways.
Now you have a choice: to force the world to go your way now, thinking it is your right. It will generate antagonism. To prevent isolation you may want to surround yourself with people who look up to you and can give you the idea that you are as great as you think you are. In fact, you still need to grow to that place.
The other option is to wait and nourish a quality of inner self-respect. This Chart has a rare Authority, which resides in the Self, the yellow diamond in the middle. Authority is the faculty in us that leads to the right decisions. When you can take a step back from pressures, from the outside and from your own mind, and listen to your inner voice, you will know the right timing to respond to people and situations. It is a subtle Authority, but powerful in its own way, because this voice expresses inner guidance and can guide others too.
People would like your leadership, they will ask for it when they see you are not pushing it onto them. There is a process happening of growing into this role of leader; rushing it works counterproductive. However, with the trial and error mode of the 1/3 Profile, some learning happens through experience.
These are some conjectures about the country, and perhaps the cultural sphere of China.
For those relating to it, realize that these people need time to come to a decision. Pressure can provoke a disproportionate reaction; flattery may work short-term, but does not lead to respect in the long run.
I am curious what will happen..
