Chinese New Year 2016
Year of the Fire Monkey
Feb 8, 2016 — Jan 27, 2017
Hold on to your hats because Monday February 8, 2016 starts the year of the Fire Monkey! According to the Chinese calendar, the Fire Monkey year symbolizes:
In the traditional five-element philosophy, fire energy is filled with movement, restlessness and activity. If you’ve been contemplating making big changes in your life, this is the year to do it! However, it is very important to think through ideas before taking action. Impulsiveness needs to be channeled correctly to avoid reckless behavior. The desire to shake things up, create change, and forge a new path must be balanced with planning and calculated risk taking to avoid regrettable mistakes.
The fire monkey is the most active and aggressive of the monkey symbols so maintaining BALANCE is always more challenging in fire monkey years. When out of balance, the natural competitive energy can become overbearing and destructive. Emotions can run amok and relationships can lead to heartbreak.
Taking care of our HEALTH involves taking good care of our HEART to avoid “Heart Fire” a Chinese Medicine diagnosis of excess. Anxiety, depression, poor sleep, poor relationships, insecurity, blood circulation disorders, hot flashes, neck and shoulder pain, and sexual dysfunction are all indications that one’s Heart Fire is out of balance.
ACUPUNCTURE is a great way to gently shift and balance energy, soothe heart fire, improve mood and sleep and create a joyful Year of the Fire Monkey.
Happy Healthy Chinese New Year!
