YEAR OF THE ROOSTER - MONTH OF THE MONKEY
We are now entering a new lunar cycle - the month of the Monkey. The animal that governs this year is the Rooster. The charismatic Fire Rooster enjoys the particular attention the Monkey brings. There will be speed in investments. Individuals born in the Year of the Dog can be especially helpful with advice.
On the world stage there will be more problems with disagreements and disputes. To help negate this influence on a local level, be a peacekeeper and don’t provoke others. Some will engage in high drama. Don’t allow yourself to be pulled into the various plot twists and turns, or the emotional outbursts of unstable and reactionary people. Unnecessary drama can pull everybody down.
Instead, view it as you would a movie, and maintain a detached perspective.Meditate for compassion, kindness, and peace for the world and all sentient beings.
“Truly, compassion is a balm for many wounds.” ~ Buddha
The Month of the Monkey in the Year of the Rooster
Rat – You will be able to overcome your perceived limitations by unleashing your spiritual energy. If you’ve been working through a past painful experience or a dysfunctional attitude, now is the time you can take action toward resolution. Pay attention to your inner voice and you will find yourself more directly aligned with the divine. Color plays a key role in healing. Visualizing the colors blue or purple around your body or actually utilizing these colors in your environment or clothing will promote an aura of health and healing.
Ox – You may feel anxiety with your work (or lack of work). This is due to an impatient attitude that you need to focus on eradicating. The key to improving your current state is to embrace inner freedom. This means adopting the attitude that there are no time limitations on your spiritual work, and that fruition will come at exactly the right moment. Impatience impedes the natural flow of realization because nature can never be hurried; it remains true to its own cycles and timelines.
Tiger – Spiritual openings occur at special moments throughout life. This is a unique period, and you are encouraged to open up your inner eye. Pay attention to the subtleties of change in your everyday life. Ask for divine guidance toward the best outcome of your long-term interests. Observe and appreciate the plants, trees, and animals you see. Notice and celebrate the interconnection of all entities and beings. This will allow you to perceive events with a much greater clarity.
Rabbit – Put some energy into reinforcing your belief in yourself and in those you love. Allow yourself the ability to appreciate the blessings in your life. Reflect on the great expanse of opportunities that lie before you. If you’re feeling confused or ambivalent about choices that need to be made, look for divine guidance through meditation. Compassion moves through you as you face every challenge and life experience.
Dragon – The universe is permitting you to take the time to enjoy the natural environment. This will allow you to reacquaint yourself with your inner nature until your personal reservoir fills with life force. If you’ve been feeling overburdened by the demands in your life, this is a great opportunity for you to take time to sort things out. Failing to take much needed rest and relaxation will cause both your psyche and your physical self to suffer. Enjoy the flora and fauna of nature as much as possible.
Snake – This month will help you heal your anxiety over lack of time, energy, and money. Allow the feelings of helplessness to dissolve away.

Then you can savor each experience of your life with joy and delight.

Monkey – Invoke the help of your own personal angels and guides. Spiritual teachers will assist you in understanding your current situation.

Dog – Just like your buddy the horse, you must realize that to be vulnerable is to be alive. Protect your dream and don’t let others with negative thoughts dissuade you from your path.
