Rat – The lunar month of the Pig is arriving. We know that the Pig is the last sign of the zodiac cycle and that next month will be the double Rat month, meaning year and month are the same. It is said that when the sign of the year and the month are the same, the true nature of the year will be revealed. Dear Rat, it’s important for you to cleanse yourself. Purify and clear clutter. Let go of objects and relationships that no longer serve you. Go within. Meditate and give thanks. It’s time for a detoxification of both your physical body, and your environment. Choose a time-honored approach to achieve your goal, and you will see gradual progress in a very positive direction.

Fine for those looking for a new relationship but if not, prance carefully my dear friend. Use this time to detoxify your body and clear your mind. Strive to understand how mind and body work together. Cherish the here and now. It’s time to create spaces in your home where you can feel absolutely at peace. Doing so will create a template for peace in all areas of your life.
Goat – Those who have been wounded and yet survived may become the greatest healers of all. A good exercise for you, Dear Goat, might be to write down a thing that has wounded you in the past – and then to list beside it the benefit that actually arose from the situation created by the wound. It might be difficult to see at first, but I promise you, with open reflection, and a wise heart you will see. This is a path of personal, spiritual development.

Whatever needs healing in your life will be resolved. The crack in the vessel is where the light enters the soul.
Monkey – Are you ready to turn the page? This is a time for you to expand beyond your self-imposed limitations and illusory boundaries. New horizons await you! Perhaps it’s time to do something different and exciting. Even in the pandemic one can experience new adventures, as long as one does so while keeping to safety protocols. This is an era of expansion with vast new and wondrous vistas. Start by gathering information and then venture out. Your monkey mind needs the simulation of the conceiving of new adventures. You will find a balance and a sense of wellbeing. Right now, a monkey needs this kind of outlook to have in order to achieve peace of mind.
Rooster – Your single mindedness is truly important in your life right now. You really need to let go of everything else. Focus your intention and your passion on one thing rather than scattering yourself in all different directions. Focus, focus, focus. Heading in myriad directions will sap your strength. Cut waaaaayyyyy back on activities that aren’t essential to your goal, and you’ll find it’s just a matter of time before miracles begin to manifest. Your slow but steady progress will lead to gradual and steadfast development.
Dog – The phone has been ringing. Are you now ready to answer it? If you’ve been hoping for a sign, here it is right now! Your guides and loved ones are sending you a message of support and healing. Evidently you stand at a gateway for communication right now. Believe. Look for signs and messages from the spirit realm. These could appear to you in the movement of the clouds. A wink from the universe, so to speak. Take it all in. Sometimes we spend so much time waiting for life to happen that we miss the joy of the current moment. Follow the signs and miracles will occur. Cherish the here and now, and ground yourself in it. The way will be shown to you, making you less likely to be thrown off balance by the unexpected.
Pig – There is a transformative energy around you. Just let go of the old, my friend. Your keywords at this time are initiation, elimination, and harvest. Yes, gather your inner resources. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t go ahead with it. Trust your heart, and remember chaos can bring positive change. Almost all change comes when you don’t expect it, so don’t be concerned. If there is confusion in your life, it will work itself out. Be receptive, devoted, and have patience in your role. Now is a time to embrace support and being supported. Like a wonderful Earth mama, your receptivity embraces all.
