2014 begins with a New Moon 10° Capricorn whose energies have already begun.
One of the major issues is health insurance - or lack of it for some people in 2014. It will take a long time, if ever, to get the Affordable Health Care Act in an acceptable place for millions of Americans, as there isn't that much time left in the hologram. I feel lucky to have Medicare, which my cousin Richard says is the best plan out there now. In November, I added AARP supplemental Plan F. There are many scared people who will lose their medical coverage on January 1. Others will lose extended unemployment. This and other factors will drive the economy and society into a dark hole as we begin the year. You know what happens when people feel frustrated and angry - they react violently.
Check out the Earthquake Map. I noticed a red circle in the middle of the US - Oklahoma to be exact - not that far from the New Madrid Fault Zone. Then there's Italy and Japan ... which never stop rocking. When it "hits the fan", you can pause and say, "I've been watching this for years and waiting for the big one". Climate changes and natural disasters accelerate as always, but now people understand these are not isolated incidents - they are all connected and ongoing ... going ... gone.

Remember crop circles? They became less interesting from year to year as we discovered they were manmade though some researchers still maintain humans could not have created the more complex designs. I believe the consciousness hologram of our reality created them as inserts or planted the seed for their creation in the minds of the circle makers.
Photos: Snowshoes and Math Create Frozen ArtDiscovery - December 30, 2013
To most people, apres-ski means a warm chalet, hot drink, spa or dinner. To Simon Beck of Great Britain, it means creating intricate pictures in the snow. And not just snow angels: Beck's snow art involves mathematical patterns and often stretches the length of several soccer fields. "There's a frozen lake outside where I stay, and one day after skiing I thought, wouldn't it be fun to make a pattern?" he said. "I didn't have any snow shoes, just walking boots, but the snow wasn't too deep and it worked perfectly well." He's been doing it ever since, creating snow art so unique that he says Disney has asked him to create an image for its winter movie, "Frozen."
January is about award shows and the entertainment industry (see calendar above) - while February is about sports -- Superbowl Sunday XLVIII and the 2014 Winter Olympics at Sochi.

I closed my eyes and asked about 2014. I saw an old fashioned child's desk like the one above. A large brown stately-looking boxer dog, wearing a diamond collar, was seated on the chair. The dog suddenly rebelled. Ah ... I searched the Boxer Rebellion. China is the country to watch. I also remembered other years where an end-of-year message referenced China.
China ... Tick tock ...
