Yang Fire Monkey Year

The Chinese new year which begins on the second new moon after the winter solstice will be on Monday, February 8th at 9: am. The rising moon will usher in the year of the Yang Fire Monkey and If I had to describe the year in one word it would be dynamic. I’ll explain why, but first, a brief description of how the Chinese astrological system works for those not acquainted with it.

Overall, Monkey years are great for breaking out of old patterns, changing unhealthy habits and transforming negative thoughts, but please don’t take my word for it. Learning and integrating the foundational knowledge of the Taoist Arts is a clear path to greater awareness. You can have fun with astrology (eastern or western) and use it as a way to foretell the future, but if you would like to go into its depths, it requires a lifetime of joyful learning and application.
