(Page 2 of 2)
Key number 3
You may be surprised at how optimistic you feel this month. Don’t allow that feeling to be dampened. It may feel a little scary to expect so much from life but this is the time when you can make a new start, so use your optimism to make positive changes in your life. This month is not only the beginning of your new cycle year, but in this monthly cycle, you get to create your life in a new image. Plant seeds for the future. Dare to dream of the changes that you would like to occur in your life, and go about planning how to make them happen.
Key number 4
At the beginning of this new year, your cycle energy is more like a slide than a leap. Expect to be a little bit sensitive, or perhaps a lot. Pay lots of attention to details, and stay in the background as much as you can. Be the peacemaker and the diplomat. Smoothing the past for others is your role under this sensitive and somewhat emotional cycle energy. Things may move a little bit more slowly than you would like them to, but if you push too hard your projects will fall to pieces. Be a little bit aggressive around creating a new look in your wardrobe, though. Aside from the opportunity to enjoy January sales, under this cycle energy you are bound to have a sharper eyes for elements, even in clothing, that go together to create harmony.
Key number 5
The cycle energy of this month should bring out your sense of lightness and fun. This is one of the most creative and optimistic cycle months you will have experienced for a long time. Communication will flow very easily and can be a real asset in many life situations; however, be careful not to say more than you intend to disclose. Think before you speak, especially when dealing with family members or peers. The shadow side of this energy is a tendency to feel sorry for oneself. Perhaps even with good reason. In this cycle energy, though, there is the ability to bounce back no matter what happens.
Key number 6
Start off your new year with dedication to practicality. Your guiding principles should be discipline and work, work, work. Take some time to review your goals and decide whether they are on track. If they’re not, this is a time to restructure and redirect your energy. Think about how to create a solid future for yourself and those you care about. Work hard in all areas of life, whether you are restructuring a company or restructuring your exercise plan. Pay close attention to your health, and bring discipline into your diet and exercise.
Key number 7
This cycle energy is bound to bring unexpected events, twists and turns, and the necessity to think quickly and creatively. Be prepared to be flexible and sometimes restless. Take your excess energy and put it to work. Under this cycle energy, you will be extremely persuasive, so this is an excellent time to promote your ideas and new projects. There is a strong tendency under this energy to take risks, and this is a good thing if the risks are related to creative idea-producing and problem-solving. However, under this energy you may be impatient and somewhat hasty. So think before you speak, especially if you are tempted to be critical. Keep your eye on the speedometer when driving, and avoid temptations to ski or behave out of bounds.
Key number 8
Under this cycle energy, concentrate on your home life, and pay special attentions to your duties and obligations, especially to family and friends. Vancouver winter is a good time for staying inside, especially when it’s raining, and while you are hiding from the rain, make your home as cozy and inviting as possible. In your personal relationships, try to understand, respect and consider the needs of those in your immediate circle and your family. A listening ear, unselfish attitude and a charitable approach to life will pay dividends in the future. Much of your energy will be concentrated on close personal relationships—this is natural and encouraged.
Key number 9
Give yourself the grace of sliding into this new cycle year softly. Things may get off to a slow start, but this cycle energy lends itself to contemplation and introspection. It’s a good time for re-evaluation, and examining your motives and your inner life. If you are an outdoor person, this is an energy in which the natural world will become a haven. Spend as much time in contemplation as is reasonable. Do not neglect your duties, but if you can avoid situations where absolute clarity is essential, you would be wiser to delay.
