Monkey Month in the Dog Year
We are entering a new lunar cycle – that of the Monkey, while the animal that governs the year is the Dog. The Dog and the Monkey have a compatible relationship. Though their principles in life differ, both signs are thought of as having energetic personalities, and loving stimulating experiences and new adventures. This is a great time for everyone to review healthy habits, and focus on their well being in preparation for autumn and the coming metal element season. Enjoy this time of plenty by eating naturally healthy foods. Create balance in overall health by nurturing body, mind, and spirit.
