Happy Chinese New Year! This is the year of the Pig. The Year of the Pig is a social year whose good fortune is connected to the energies of the previous year– the year of the Dog. The saying, “It’s not only what you know, it’s who you know that matters,” is important to keep in mind. Pig years are all about the advantages of being connected to the “right” people at the “right” time. Self-control, patience, and hard work are the key words for this year and the awareness that the “force” is still with you is your inspiration.
For All of Us:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
“We convince by our presence. Keep showing up.” Walt Whitman”
“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Ask yourself, “Who would I be and what would I be doing if I didn’t try to meet the expectations of others?” It’s time for you to take a look at what’s truly in your heart, claim it and act on it.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) The times are a changin’, so pay attention to your own process during this time of intense transformational activity. As you focus on your own issues and avoid being distracted by others, you will discover and benefit from the powerful gift of being able to appreciate yourself.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Keep your feet firmly on the ground and your head held high in the clouds. Do that and with each Divine inspiration, you’ll find that you have built the firm foundation necessary to richly manifest your dreams.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Honest acknowledgment of what isn’t working for you at this time is even more important than honestly acknowledging what does work for you. Doing so will help you see the truth about your circumstances and insure that the powerful help you need comes to you more easily.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) There are so many new possibilities and profitable relationships waiting for you. There is no better time than now to choose something new and give it all you’ve got. Please avoid vacillating and being indecisive. Your mantra is “Of course!”
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) It’s all about the fine tuning now. Keep going and don’t overlook the value of your “sweat equity”. The success you’re creating still needs a few more building blocks before you put the finishing touches on it. Keep going and within a few months, you’ll have plenty to celebrate.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) This is a waiting period for you. The dust is beginning to settle. While waiting for it to settle, you can either burn a lot of energy by being anxious about the outcome or you can learn to wait productively. It’s important that you keep your wits about you and observe the energy flow. The wisdom you acquire will be priceless.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Putting one foot in front of the other isn’t the most exciting way to move through this period of your life, but it is the most profitable way. As you continue to do so, the stability you’ve longed for begins to manifest itself in a profitable and exciting manner. Please remember to keep the faith, be good to yourself and express gratitude to yourself as well as your Higher Power.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Remember, what others think about you is none of your business. Please pay attention to how you allow yourself to be affected by outside stimulus. As you begin to notice what creates inner peace and what causes inner turmoil, you’ll also begin to powerfully restructure your support systems.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Too much of anything isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In order to be victorious, you’ll need to put all of your energy into your latest project for the next few weeks. Your commitment will attract unlimited assistance from a new ally.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Humility, patience and grace– these three words are your mantra during the next few weeks. There’ll be a lot of dramatic changes opening the way for important opportunities. Stay calm and remember to keep your eyes on the prize and the mind-chatter to a minimum.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) As issues, beliefs, and people from your past come up for review, remember, the only power they have is the power you give them. They are from your past– leave them there! Trust your Higher Power as you move past these outmoded energies. As you do so, you’ll see that your life is your testimonial and you are your role model.
