Happy Chinese New Year to all!  2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey.  And from all the bits I have read about this Chinese New Year, it seems very fitting of how my year has gone thus far and there are probably bits of wisdom and advice we all can benefit from.  Here are quotes from two of the sites I read that really hit home for me:

  •  “The year of the Monkey is ideal for a quantum leap in your life! Now is the time to shake things up, create change, and innovate a new path. Join Monkey’s enthusiastic energy when risks are rewarded and anything can happen. Even the most ambitious plans can succeed. There will be more than enough action and opportunity to keep you busy. In Monkey year, it’s fine to just make it up as you go along.”   http://susanlevitt.com/astrology/monkey-year-2016/
  • “Leap from moment to moment using your intuition while maintaining a playful sense of humor.  The bigger story for 2016 is it being a numerological 9-year. In numerology, the number nine holds the vibration of completion. Like volunteering at a homeless shelter (9 represents humanitarianism too), completion is no easy task and yet incredibly rewarding.  Completion inherently involves releasing.  Anything and everything that is no longer serving your highest and best interest (AKA, your soul) has to go.  It is time to end any thoughts, habits, beliefs, people, places, or things that are no longer worthy of moving forward with you into the new.”    http://www.pacherbs.com/predictions-for-the-monkey-year-2016/

May we all find the strength and courage we need to break out of our ruts, whatever those may be, and make the leaps that will help us grow, move us forward, and nourish our souls.  Let the good ol’ Nike slogan give us some encouragement…Just Do It!
