Year of the Earth Pig – 2019

2019-06-19T21:00:39-05:00

The Pig Year wants us all to get along.  Kind of refreshing, yes? Given the "risky business" of the 2017 Rooster preceding the dire reckonings and conflict of the 2018 Dog Year, "getting along" in this Pig Year will be a bit of a pendulum swing. All manner of deficiencies born of the Rooster & Dog years will be brought back into balance.  So much so, we must not become too complacent.  The Pig is a bit blasé', allowing for a certain carelessness. Inattention, perhaps bordering on the reckless.  So, enjoy, but watch your money The Pig will calm things down, [...]

2019-06-19T20:48:11-05:00

Heads up! This will NOT be your typical Goat Year! There is a confluence of cosmic forces coming that portend the Good Fortune of Positive Outcomes. Traditionally, 'Yu Wei' or the 32nd year of the Green Wooden Goat (aka 'Ram' or 'Sheep') is symbolically represented as the 'lazy-days of passing summer' - a period of prosperity and well-being. Said of this year: "Its diligence applied to hard work ensures prosperity". But, the 2015 Goat Year will unfold to be much, much more than that... For most, economic, social & political upheavals roiling these past years forced our arduous labor, struggling [...]

Year of the Water Snake – 2013

2019-06-19T20:55:45-05:00

The Snake is wise. The Snake is unforgiving. Understand this to prepare for the Year of the Snake. The Snake is the most complex force in the 12-year zodiac cycle and its Year presents as "unsettled", at best. While history tells us the Snake Year has never been tranquil, it can be well spent in reflection, planning and in contemplation of long-sought solutions. The Snake Years' reputation for turmoil and "sharp dealings" can always be traced to missteps and excesses rooted in the preceding Dragon Year. These celestial serpents are inextricably intertwined. Unprecedented calamity struck in our last Snake Year [...]

Year of the Water Dragon – 2012

2019-06-19T21:00:03-05:00

One of five distinctly formative Elements energizes each of the 12 zodiac creatures every 60 years. While the Dragon Year comes every 12 years, the Energy generated by these core Elements as Wood Dragon, Fire Dragon, Earth Dragon, Metal Dragon, or Water Dragon years will present different challenges. All Dragon Years are considered exceedingly powerful. But, as you might guess, a Fire Dragon Year brings different aspect impacts than a Water Dragon Year. For more on this, check out The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes, by Lau. The Energy of this Water Dragon Year will favor optimum expansion and growth, being [...]
