2019: Year of the Pig
The Year of the Pig: a year of fortune and luck!
2019 is the year of the pig in Chinese astrology. The new year starts on February 5th.
According to most of the sites I follow, 2019 it's supposed to be a much better year than 2018. It will mostly be beneficial for all 12 signs of the Chinese Zodiac.
In Chinese astrology the pig represents wealth and generosity.
Here is a overview of the coming year for each of the Chinese zodiac animal signs.
Rat: you should have a great year full of joy and abundance.
Ox: overall 2019 should be a solid and positive year. Keep your eyes open for opportunities to bring in multiple income streams. The key is activating opportunities not letting them pass by.
Tiger: this year your fortune will increase when you collaborate and work with others. A little humility and trust will go a long way.
Rabbit: you'll be blessed with a wonderful year in 2019. This year it will be easier than ever to create and deepen relationships with others. Reach Out! Love is waiting for you to take the first step.
Dragon: . If you want excitement don't stir up drama ! Keep things exciting by going on fun and enriching Adventures with others or alone.
Snake: activate your powers of persuasion to get what you want! This means charm not deceit.
Horse. 2019 should be a much better year then 2018. If you had a relatively calm and peaceful 2018 expect there to be a continuation of joy and abundance in 2019.
Goat. You will be graced with luck this year. Consult the iching or tarot to figure out where your luckiest path lies.
Monkey. This year is going to be full of twists and turns and happy surprises. Be flexible and stay positive and get ready for a wild ride!
Rooster. Being Wiley isn't going to get you very far this year. Sincerity and vulnerability will get you to the end of the rainbow and the proverbial pot of gold.
Dog. 2019 will be the year where you get what you deserve. Think investment. Anything you put energy into you will be rewarded for. If you don't do anything nothing's going to happen. But remember the world is your oyster. Dream big and go forth.
Pig. You will be ruled By your home sign this year. Think of it as spiritual weight lifting. Anywhere you overcome obstacles or invest your energy will have greater rewards than usual.
Investment in Action
I've been thinking a lot about investment lately. Everything that we do is an investment that we stand upon later. How we think is the architect of our actions and our future. Perspective itself is an investment. What we say, what we do and how we interact with people is an investment.
Usually when we talk about the term investment in Western Society we are referencing money. Well, we are in a system that was created before any of us were born. In this man-made social/financial structure, our energy gets translated into cash. A bill (dollar or otherwise) is a proxy for our life-energy that was invested into labor. (This is a deeply flawed system with some humans' labor being more valued than others. But that is another discussion) I am talking about looking at where our energy goes and assessing if we are in control of our direction.
This year I have really gotten a hold of my money. I am harnessing it and directing it and respecting it like I never have before because truly... it's My Life Energy manifested as green dollars.
I also started looking at relationship in terms of investment. Nurturing and spending energy on an excellent reciprocal relationship, whether it's family, friends or a lover will bring endless dividends in the future. Deep real reciprocal relationships could even save your life ...or at least your mental health, at some point.
I think that 'acts of investment' are fundamentally the actions of an adult. Investment calls in the idea that we don't live in a vacuum and that our actions do affect others. Our actions deeply affect our future self. Ask yourself: What would my future self thank me for?
I think Our future self would be extremely grateful if we invested in our best version of reality now.
I think being mindful is the state of a grown-up, and acting mindlessly is the state of a child. And we have tons of mindless adults. It's not totally their fault. We are in the end times of capitalism and we are trained to not truly think for ourselves. The system puts pressure on us to be a cog in the academic/ health/ work machine ... and then to consume endlessly.
I'm all for spontaneity, but there's also a place in life for building a solid foundation based on investment.
These are just some of my thoughts rolling around at the end of 2018.
I am wishing you a fantabulous 2019!

Fortunately, the energetic flow of a January is moving from a place of constriction and exhaustion into expansion and new possibilities. Some of us are really going to be feeling like we need to reclaim some personal space. You can set boundaries with love. Say NO with compassion. Creating a calm and quiet space for yourself will allow you to have some brand new ideas for the coming year. Look at 2019 as your own personal blank page. Set some goals for yourself that you can achieve. I'm not just talking about New Year's resolutions. I'm talking about something you've been thinking about for a long time. Actually do it. Seriously think about where you're going to invest your energy this year. Please do not stop your brainstorming sessions with so called 'practical' considerations. Anything that is important to you divine spirit can be achieved. If anyone, anywhere, has done or become something that you want to do or be, that means you can acieve it too...with your own personal panache , of course!!!

February could turn out to be a game-changer for some of us. A great big, hairy truth is staring you in the face. This does not have to be scary (even if it's really ugly!). Remember: the truth will set you free. This may have to do with some aspect of your life that you have been wishing would change by itself. Well sorry, it's not going to change on its own. And if it's a situation outside of you, it may not change at all. By this point in the paragraph most of you know what I'm talking about. What's the good news? Well, oh my! Being honest with yourself and others lightens the burden, changes the course and truly leads to liberation. Be brave! Go forth! And most of all get real.

Although the days are getting longer, March sort of feels like the armpit of winter... at least in the northern hemisphere. It's the tail end of winter, just on the verge of spring, so wrap up any old or stale situations and send them on their way. Very shortly it's going to be time for us to personally get in harmony with nature and Bloom! What mind-seeds were rolling around in the dark depths of dreamy long nights? It's not too late to plant something that wants to come alive in the summer. For many of us love is going to bloom soon. But it's going to come with an agenda. There's nothing wrong with someone having an agenda if it's going to benefit you. But remember 'charm' is a verb. And it always it has an end in sight. Just follow your intuition about the dynamics of any relationship you're in or getting into. Your intuition is a giant information machine!!
