If we are always in pursuit of happiness, how do we manage in the face of sadness, regret, loss or disappointment? What are we to do with these shadowed, uncomfortable and sometimes frightening emotions? It seems that our culture, and our yoga embedded within it, is held hostage to notions that happiness, passion, adventure and pleasure are to be pursued and celebrated as the highest values of human existence. And without doubt, most pyschotherapeutic, meditative, yogic and other transformative practices are intended, ultimately, to help us move from contraction to expansion, from darkness to light, from enslavement to freedom.

As I muse on the upcoming cycle, I can’t help but feel the power of 2014 and the gift of the darkness.

Which means that the days and weeks leading up to solstice, where we are right now, are actually the longest nights. Interestingly enough, we are in the waning phase of the moon, with the new moon in Capricorn also occurring on 12/21.

Just like junk bonds, industrial commodities are a very reliable leading indicator. In other words, prices for industrial commodities usually start to move in a particular direction before the overall economy does.

For most gold investors, the manipulation of the price of precious metals has been blatant and obvious.
