Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:
Transforming Your Life in The Year of the Ox
This year’s Chinese Horoscope animal is the Yin Metal Ox, which began on February 12th and will continue January 31st, 2022. Recent Years ruled by the Ox are 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 and 2021. Future years will be 2033, 2045 and 2057.
The positive qualities of the Ox are generally described as strength, devotion, hard work, honesty and positivity. However, Ox also has a tendency to be stubborn, shy, with overly prudent or cautious behavior. She might resist change by blocking things and digging in her hoofs without budging an inch. I’m going to compare this type of behavior to that described in Longfellow’s poem, “When Ox is positive, she’s very, very positive. When she’s negative, she’s horrid.”
A major consideration of managing Ox energy in 2021 is how to apply your efforts effectively into situations, people and projects that are actually heading in the same direction you would like to go.
By the way, all this fits in perfectly with 2021 being a Number Five Year in the Tarot system represented by Temperance (balance and patience) and the Hierophant (inner vision and true guidance). It’s not hard to see how troublesome things could become if you were to tap into that more resistant, stubborn energy. Especially when you’re being asked to patiently follow Soul guidance and wisdom!
This leads us to the movement of the Collective Psyche, which is upward this year. Last Year was a Year of going In and when people bucked against their better angels, they went Out, causing unnecessary ill will, suffering and divisiveness towards the collective good.
So this year, your better angels will advise you to go Up. To rise up and above the turmoil and darkness that festers below. Many will buck those promptings and dive down, submerging themselves into old patterns and woundedness. Sadly, their energy will be used, yet again, by unscrupulous and predatory Souls. If you are feeling drained, weak and/or depressed, this could be your problem. Reverse the movement of your Soul by harnessing the positive momentum of the Double Green Ox. Reach for the Light and Psyche will follow.
As you can see, there’s a lot going on! To help you, this Transformation Game has been put together to increase your awareness of the different energies involved and how you might use them in a healthy way to keep you clear and on track!
Reversing the Flow of Life Force in the Year of the Ox ~
As you gaze at this Circle that accesses your personal energy flow, see if you currently need some increased self-awareness around an important aspect of flow in your life. Ask yourself:
“Would it benefit me to get inner guidance about my environment (feng shui ) for creating career, money, health, home or dwelling, business opportunity or a love relationship?”
Make sure that you’re aware of the current flow of the Tao – or “gateway through which all things move.” Use some positive affirmations to help you get there:
“I choose to notice the flow of the Tao.”
“I have correct awareness of the prevailing energy in my environment.”

Open Your 4th Chakra So You Can Be Inspired By Your Inner Guidance ~
Use this Reiki Chakra Key to balance and open your Heart Center.
“My heart is open to the flow of joy and balanced prosperity in this situation.”
“I am centered and radiating ___________.”
“My heart is empowered and aligned with my highest good.”
When things are at their beginning, it’s very easy to get off track. Mistakes are bound to happen because this New Paradigm is a new path for everyone. We will all probably need to go back and make adjustments to plans and/or assumptions we’ve made about how this new stage is going to work.
You’re going to need to cultivate true kindness and patience towards your Self to make the changes necessary. Gently look at the next Circle to affirm your best intentions:
“My agreement is to be kind and patient with myself as I learn about this New Paradigm.”
“I remain flexible to make choices that will keep me moving upward on a positive trajectory following the guidance of my Soul.”
“I let go of _________. I prepare for __________. I take care of __________.”
“I use beneficial channels of communication and natural healing to further my highest good.”
“I clear and empower my Throat Chakra to speak my needs truthfully for the highest good.”
Focus in on the open, blank space in the middle of this Circle. Send your energy to it using these positive affirmations:
“I use my energy wisely – to fuel life affirming goals.”
“I make a conscious choice to focus my energy on genuinely helpful people, projects and activities.”
Make a list of things or experiences you would like to create that would be genuinely productive for you at this time.
“I decide to let go of unproductive activities and negativity. I send them to the Light to be transformed.”
Make a list of things you need to let go of…
“I am fully present and ready to transform my life.”
*Note: If you have a copy of The Essential Human, now would be a good time to use it to untangle yourself from any harmful scenarios or exploitative situations.
Once you’ve done that, you’ll probably feel quite a bit better.
If you’re willing, there are several other decisions you could make that could really improve how you’re navigating the energy.
Let’s continue with several principles that are bound to be helpful as you transform your life.
Priority #1: Stay focused and calm.
The year will have many challenges – sometimes too many! Keeping a calm and peaceful mindset will help you stay aware of possible danger. Ask yourself:
“Am I calm? Focused? Is there something I need to pay attention to for my own good?”
Priority #2: Keep Your Choices Down to Earth and Do-able.
Keeping your perception realistic sets you up for success and keeps you on track.
“I let go of fantasies and unrealistic ideas.”
“I focus on what’s really possible for me to create in my current situation.”
“I perceive my situation as it really is.”
“Clarity of thought and good boundaries create the best conditions for success.”
“I decide that being calm and stable are healthy qualities to nurture.”
Priority #3: Stay Grounded In Your Own Garden.
It can be pretty easy to wander off into other people’s gardens looking for work that isn’t really meant for us. This is what is known as ‘I’m going to fix you” syndrome. Don’t buy into it!
“I remain in my own garden to tend it properly. I make the necessary changes so that I may thrive.”
Priority #4: Release Irritations and Don’t Take Things Personally.
We may have a tendency to internalize all the stressful irritations that are a part of learning and adapting to any new situation. Use this Circle to help you open up and release anything that’s bugging you. Imagine those bugs all flying up to the Sun!
Once you’ve done that and you feel clear, ask yourself, “Is there anything irritating me about my physical environment?”
Priority #5: Be the One Driving in Your Own Driver’s Seat.
Life is too short to let other people or other agendas be in charge of how you’re living your life. Have the Courage to say “no” when you need to.
Stop second guessing and make a choice about what’s most important for you right now.
“What is most important right now?’
“Do I have some intentions that conflict with each other? If so, can I tell what they are? What can I do to clear the conflicts?
Am I in a suitable position to be successful? If not, what would help?”
Now it’s time to dissolve mental and emotional patterns that pull you off track. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to identify and let go of any societal or familial patterns that interfere with transforming your life. See them disappear as you send them to the Sun:
“I dissolve the destructive energies or old patterns of ____________, etc. ”
I decide to get grounded and follow the path that’s most beneficial to me.”
Once the patterns are cleared, close the pathways or trajectories that lead to trouble.
“All harmful pathways are sealed and healed.
I follow the direction of healthy protection.”
Transforming your life is an opportunity to go within and expel deep patterns of neglect that prevent us from creating more sustainable systems for health, relationships and prosperity.
You can use this opportunity to plant beneficial karmic seeds for these new systems and any other useful resources that you may need in the near or distant future.
Once you begin to take responsibility for how you’re using your energy, you can bring sustainable choices into your world and benefit everyone!
