As many of us have been discussing, this new year (summed up) is an eight year.
Eight years are great years. And here’s why:
Eight=success. Power. Control. Mastery. authority. Executive skills, ambitious, and decisiveness. And the physical/material rewards that come from such actions.
Eight years also have shadow aspects. When the above qualities and actions are not balanced or carefully employed, eight years can be workaholic, Stressed, insensitive, manipulative, and materialistic years.
True power and success come from the ability to control the strength of the shadow beast within as we act in our own interests. Here, beast means the lower passions ( including lust) , as well as the traditional passions of greed and envy that reside within all of us. For more information, look to the qualities represented by the upright and reversed meaning of the Strength card, the eight card in major arcana tarot decks.

Don’t let knowledge of the shadow aspects and inner beasts in the number eight scare you! Remember to tame you spiritual lion as you move towards your achievements. We are all given the ability to control our shadow aspects, if we so choose. Remember, Eight years are naturally more positive than negative. It will be hard to go wrong this year. 2015 will be a prosperous year for any of us committed to projects, work, long term goals, and not steamrolling those around us.
We look forward to seeing, and tasting, the fruits of our labors in the next twelve months with all of you, our fellow journeymen in life.
Happy working, fulfilling, and success!
