Today is #ChineseNewYear, also known as Lunar New Year, the year of the red #firemonkey. Already since the start of 2016 we’ve been experiencing exactly what the #redmonkey is about: change, release, cleansing, purging, intensity, passion, fun, exploration, creativity and surprise!
Maybe we truly are more like monkeys than we’d like to admit. Whether we’re jumping from branches or from one thing to the next, having a light-hearted and jovial attitude this year will serve us well. A big lesson for 2016 is the lesson of “How to laugh at the tough stuff.”
So many talented artists and magnificent teachers have crossed over lately. Of course it hasn’t been only TV talent, but big transition has also been manifesting within ourselves and those who are dear to us. I can’t remember a year with so much action. This is a fantastic year for the unexpected. Big opportunity, massive life changes, aggressive moves, and transformation. Ideas that have been knocking on the inside of our heads may be an invitation to dive in and explore something completely fresh and new. Don’t worry, we will be served a heaping plate of things that we haven’t anticipated. We will learn to embrace it whether we’ve prepared ourselves for change or not.
Monkeys are smart, logical, brilliant little buggers. They have the talent of making anything fun. If a monkey puts their heart into a project they are passionate about they will experience inevitable success. This means that if your sign falls on a monkey year this can actually be one of your most exciting and successful years yet.
Chinese stories talk about an idea that if you are in the year of your own sign it will be more difficult than previous years, but this is just not true with monkeys. Monkey folks don’t play by the same rules as everyone else. They make their own. Monkey people are driven, have trouble staying focused, tend to be forward thinking, but quickly master what they set out to accomplish. As long as they don’t get carried away by their short attention span they generally live a pretty exciting life. Monkeys play well with others and teamwork is a great plan for this year. Try not to isolate. Make yourself available so the power of life can access you and move accordingly.
Regardless of your Chinese sign, tap into the extra strong energy of this powerful year and take action. What you have been stewing on for the past few years has a huge energetic boost. Attention placed on important projects can be profoundly successful this year. Keep focused, and let’s just say –“the force is with you."
