February 8th, 2016 rings in the start of the lunar New Year and welcomes the playfulness of the Fire Monkey!
Fire years bring about full expression of the seeds of thoughts, ideas, and goals planted during the proceeding wood years. Now is the time for calling upon courage and strong-will, seizing opportunities, employing clear heart-centered communication and being creative to allow these ideas to develop, expand and flourish into tangible actions and results.
The energy of monkey years is much like the animal they’re named for – unpredictable, inventive, playful and curious. Being flexible and adaptable during a monkey year is highly encouraged, for one can never be too sure what lies ahead when dealing with monkeys! It’s also important to maintain a healthy sense of humor and wit to call upon during the unpredictability of monkey years. Enjoy the high energy, liveliness and optimism that monkeys bring.
The start of the lunar New Year is also the perfect time to set new intentions. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are a great way to cultivate health and wellness. I look forward to helping you meet your health goals in the year ahead.
Wishing you, your family and friends happiness, abundance and health in 2016!
