Intuitive Reading from the I Ching or Book of Change – Midwinter Transition.
In this intuitive reading, Soul Resources offers a variety of SOS formulas and Transformation Games using the Intuitive Learning Circles and the I Ching to enhance your midwinter transition from 2023 into 2024.
It’s nearly the end of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Rabbit, which will transition to the Dragon on February 10th, 2024, which is a very popular archetypal energy.
Complimentary Zodiac Signs are Monkey and Rat.
The Dragon’s Secret Friend is Rooster.
His energy goes decidedly against Dog.
However, don’t get ahead of yourself. The Dragon’s energy will not make itself known until much closer to the Lunar New Year on February 10th.
Stay present with the positive Yin Water Rabbit archetype that’s been in effect since last January 22nd, 2023. Call upon her gentle energy to invite more peace and prosperity into your life as we go through multiple midwinter transitions at the beginning of 2024.
Allow her quiet courage and cooperative nature to inspire new paths to take and ways to communicate with one another. If you’re interested, gaze softly at her Feng Shui Mandala and meditate on the nature of her energy.
Rabbit is also considered by many to be a trickster, yet those who’ve made friends with her can receive very clear warnings when something’s amiss. Because she’s so finely attuned to the passing scents of predators, she knows quick and clever ways to escape from any danger she may sense in her vicinity. If you ask nicely, she will help you to do the same! Here are some questions to ask:
Does Rabbit sense any present concerns for you? If so, are they nearby or off in the distance? Is there a rabbit hole that would be better for you to avoid? What is her advice?
She’s also very good at sniffing out prosperity by finding the tastiest morsels, the coziest warrens and following the most profitable opportunities. Does she sense any valuable opportunities for you? What tasty morsels do you have the opportunity to enjoy in your near future? What changes would benefit you to make right now?
If you’ve been tired and exhausted, Rabbit recommends that you take a look at the Completion Stage of our Happiness Power Circle for some solutions.
Influences from the Tarot
The Tarot Major Arcana Card for 2024 is # VIII: Strength (2 + 0 + 2 + 4 = 8)
Subconsciousness is the Woman in this card and the image suggests that she has the Lion in complete control. This card conveys the potential for an expansion of consciousness that makes for greater control over our instinctual animal natures.
However, in reverse it can mean: Abuse of power. Despotism. Weakness or Discord.
In some Tarot decks, Justice is the number 11 and in others it’s the number 8.
Reversed: Imbalance. Bigotry. Bias. Prejudice. Excessive severity.
Needless to say, the playing out of Karma and karmic law is front and center in many people’s minds during this election year. The potential for anything to happen is possible. For a more positive outcome, the archetypal energy of Justice will need to be activated through a willingness to pierce through the darkness of denial and ignorance. Do we have the ability to do that? Are we willing?
That brings us back to the primary Tarot energy for the year – Strength
Strength often represents the great cosmic force in the human organism called kundalini. Whenever working with the instinctual forces of nature, one must be careful and patient, otherwise things can go wildly out of control.
The key to awakening the power safely is to learn how to control your body, your mind and your emotions. The same is true for how you can effectively navigate the volatile energies that will rise and fall unexpectedly.
Centering yourself and learning how to stay balanced in difficult situations are the most important skills to master.
Understanding the Larger Picture During this Midwinter Transition
With all these influences coming together, 2024 promises to be a year abundant with unconscious fears and misperceptions bubbling up to the surface. If you’re wise, you’ll take the time to examine them. Unconscious karma could be causing a problem that will throw you completely out of balance.
The reasons why things haven’t been going well are going to make themselves known. If you double down on resisting the Truth, it could be very painful. If you’re paying attention and willing to make corrections, you’ll find amazing opportunities to set things right that have been amiss for a very long time.
♦ The I Ching offers some good advice about how to change with all the changes.
♦ Poor communication is at the core of many of our difficulties. Using the I Ching flow of MODERATION will help turn things around.
The I Ching
Navigate Volatility through MODERATION
The I Ching energy has been traveling in a multiple highway pattern for some time and it’s likely to remain that way for much of the next year.
Whenever that happens, it’s best to find the flow of Hexagram #15 MODERATION or “the Middle Road” to help you keep your balance. The original text offers some specific advice to follow for this Midwinter transition:
“This is a good time to bring some equilibrium to your more personal relationships. Examine your deepest feelings and see if you are harboring any extremes in your expectations or selfish desires in your motivations. Try to moderate any unrealistic ideals.
Your inner development now requires a modest and sincere attitude. Do not indulge in extremes of any sort, and instead strive for MODERATION in all that you do. It must be understood that acting with MODERATION means not only limiting the obvious excesses, but also exposing yourself to new areas of experience. Through MODERATION you can now gain some real control over your destiny. In this way you use the balancing tendency of the current forces to center yourself. This inner equilibrium aligns you with the tao, thus bringing you into harmony with forces that can work for you…”
By maintaining a careful inner MODERATION, your outward actions gain influence and weight… A thoroughness in your actions brings good fortune.” ~ Hexagram #15 MODERATION, The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

Scroll down to that number in the list of games and exercises below and check out what that process has to offer you.
Transformation Games and Mind Exercises ~
Strength is sending you a message: “You’re not seeing something the way it really is. Step back and take a closer look at how past habits may be drawing you into a situation that is not in your best interests.”
Traveling the Middle Road may sound boring and uneventful, especially if you’re used to being flung from one extreme to the other. Strength wants you to know: “All true mastery is self-mastery and only a Fool would forge ahead into the darkness without a map and proper guidance from their Soul.”
How well are you nourishing your relationship with your projects and yourself? Before you take off in 2024, you may want to stop and take an honest assessment about how well they are nourishing you. Keep in mind that what you put out comes back to you – even if you’re putting out something that isn’t actually yours. If your efforts are not nourishing you, who are they nourishing?Strength says, “Knowing your limits and what brings you Joy will keep you centered and strong.”
