Happy Chinese New Year! We are beginning the year of the Fire Rooster according to Chinese astrology and the start of Spring has begun!
It may not feel like spring outside, but see if you can be aware of a growth starting inside of yourself. Maybe you notice an upwards movement to your emotions and energy, a rising desire for change, justice, and action. When anger and frustration is appropriate, see if you can channel that energy into action, rather than dwell in stuck-ness. We have the energy of spring at our side that will continue to grow through the next few months and make us flexible and firm in the face of unexpected shifts.
The year of the Fire Rooster will be a powerful one. This is a year to enhance your virtues of dedication, loyalty, and hard work. Be particular about what you choose to focus on so that you can give it all you have. And remember that the nature of fire is unpredictable and sometimes alarming. Ride the wave and know that we all have deep well of wisdom and silence to draw on for strength and perseverance.
