This number is fortunate for dealings with money, speculation and changes in business. There is a strong element of risk attached to this number due to foolishness of others and taking wrong advice.

Finding a balance and practicing moderation are important to peace and happiness. Temperance is assigned to the zodiac sign Sagittarius, half-man, half-horse, that covers time and space.

The combination of the two cards emphasize the need for finding a balance and remaining optimistic.
New Moon in Shaula: 1 January 2014
The year is named after the placement of the moon on the 1st of January and on the movement of Jupiter. Shaula is the marker star on the sting of the scorpion, that marks the beginning of the 19th moon mansion in Sagittarius. Shaula likes to get to the root of things by examining the past. This moon mansion is about destroying old outworn ideas and gaining success by moving forward into new horizons. The new moon conjuncts Pluto and Mercury emphasizing the need to let go of old worn out ideas and to welcome the new. This aspect highlights power struggles and the need to let go of tunnel vision and see the bigger picture.
