Take a deep breath… ahh… ok, Happy New Year! Last month may not have felt like the right time to start your new year's resolutions. Mercury was in retrograde most of the month, so we were finishing up loose ties, mental, emotional and spiritual. Last month really felt like endings as well as seeing what we needed to discover for the year ahead. A lot more reflecting than pursuing went down last month.
Here’s to the new year and what a better way to start than to celebrate the Chinese New Year on February 6th as we get to play and solve problems with the year of the Fire Monkey. Because we have the fire element active this year we will be accelerated in all areas. Wars will not be stopped, but monkey’s find solutions to even the most labyrinthine of issues.
‘In this year the monkey will also highlight the importance of finding alternatives to health, homeopathic and nonconformist treatments. More will open more their eyes to this. Monkey years are famous for making order out of chaos. Monkeys are forever seeking novel solutions for all the world’s problems. The Monkey, instead of looking at the problem, looks through it, calculates the risks and then begins to pick it apart. This unique method of sorting out predicaments gives the Monkey an edge. Monkeys have few hostile verbal confrontations because their enemies know full well that they are up against a superior Monkey mind.’ – Suzanne White
To add to the the flow of starting over we have a New Moon in Aquarius on February 8th. This is a mysterious Moon which will seek out things we have kept hidden and reveals a new state of being. We may seem calm on the surface, but under our skin our hearts and souls are pulsating with powerful energy if we choose to explore it. Even if you don’t feel it yet, something is awakening in side, and some of us may choose to lay in bed longer in the mornings than others. So set those new intentions and new years goals! Let yourself have more play time like the monkey’s do! For good luck in Feng Shui add the monkey in your life, whether it be a picture on your phone to remind you to have fun, maybe a stuffed animal in your bed or even monkey socks! Be goofy, be playful, be a monkey this year.
As we round out the month with new beginnings we have a Full Moon on the 22nd in Virgo. What a great time to ground and heal ourselves. Walk bare foot, plant a garden and get in touch with Mother Earth. This Full Moon is backed up by a new eclipse season which enters the 23rd. This is a time to give yourself a high five for all your hard work and let go of all the strain. We are now entering a new six-month cycle! So with this Full Moon, let go of January, let go of the past and get ready for a better tomorrow! 2016 starts now!
