“Finally Official!! 2016 Gregorian Calendar year is OVER!!  It is 2017!! AND with it the Yang Fire Monkey is slowly losing his grip and slipping away, as well. He has definitely been a wild ride for many. Myself included!!

“That darn monkey of chaos has tried hard to hang on but happily I can finally feel the energy releasing. We may have a few more bumps before he is gone but I already can feel the order and strut of the Rooster marching in. Signs of new communications are already crowing for many. We are hearing of new things each day that are being set in motion to manifest this year. It seems a new dawning of Aquarius with the Rooster’s Crow. There seems to be a new energy of creation in the air. ”

“The Chinese New Year officially begins the first day of spring and arrives this year on January 28th, 2017. However, the transition to the day of spring actually began at the winter solstice around December 21st-December 23rd. The Monkey energy is waning and the Rooster is building. ”

“Between now and January 28th begin to clear out the old energy and set your new year goals in manifestation. ”

“1.Start cleaning and de-cluttering your home and life. Organize. Get rid of all old clothing and old and ends in the home that no longer fit your lifestyle or desire for that lifestyle.”

“2.If the towels in your cabinet are stale from only using the top ones….wash them all.”
“Stale clothing and towels attract odor and energy of the past years. If washing doesn’t freshen your clothes, it is time to pitch them. Start over. (I used to donate them to charity thrift shops but no longer do so because that degrades the one who gets them. However, I give them to animal shelters for rags or bedding.)”

“3. Get rid of all outdated items in the home. Food, medication, toiletries, etc. These items take up space and collect dust if not used. Spices and toiletries lose their scent. This clearing also frees up space to allow chi to flow freely.”

“4. Buy new doormats for your front door. Put the words OH AH HUM on the back in black marker. It helps bring new clear energy into the home.”

“5. Throw away your old hairbrush and toothbrush. Start the new year with a clean, clear head. These items, which are used each day, collect mega energy and need replaced often for health reasons.”

“6. Wipe your computer clean of all programs and outdated emails that no longer serves your purpose. This action frees up brain space in your mind and frees up hard drive. The subconscious mind has enough to deal with. Back up any program you may feel you want to re visit in the future.”

Fun BLOG… Analogy of the last few days following Legend of the zodiac animals. Please share…. let others have your fun!!

Wahoo…. we have made it to the Year of Female Water Snake!! Finally we get to bid the aggressive water dragon ‘adieu’. Last year, he ripped the lids and hearts out of people, places, and things and left a path of chaos in his midst.

The last few day you may have felt the changing transition of the year from the aggressive water dragon to the calmer energy of the water snake. You may have felt a slight dizziness or air-headed feeling. A sudden feeling of nervousness or confusion. Periods where you may have felt angry but then calm. Lots of movement of energy and activity around your body when no one was there. Things bumping in the night so to speak. I have felt all of it and even my level headed, left brained hubby has heard it.

If you recall according to esoteric legend, the dragon, an earth energy in the element zodiac and ruler of the thunder and heavens has to recoiled and leave, opening the path to the Water Snake. As he left his heavenly energy of water, rain, thunder and storms was awakened and the earth shook. This explains the last few days of the storms and the earthquakes. It was a sign the dragon was on the move and returning to a sleep stage. Thank Heavens..literally. May the heavens now calm.

This year, we will be like the snake. We will literally be crawling on our bellies to piece back together all that got shaken and disturbed or broken last year!! Use the earth energy to stabilize your physical body when you feel unsure of yourself and the direction you are to move. Wear stone jewelry on your body and/or meditate with the stones to ground the body. Also sit in large heavy furniture to re-stabilize the body.

Howeverrrrrrr…with that said… a word of caution….piece back together only those things that you wish to fix. If you broke it, you may wish to fix it. If someone else broke, do you really want to fix it?? If you wish, slither off in a new direction to find your new position of power. LIke the snake who slithers on the ground and hides in the grass or climbs and winds up the highest tree to see the world from an advantage point, you have the ability to access your inner intuition this year with magnificent insight and use it appropriately to move your life to places your never thought possible.

Have a fabulous day. Connect with those people who you wish to have in your life this year!! I just did!!

I hope to have the February Feng Shui aspects posted tomorrow. Today set your yearly adjustments as found in the Female Water Snake: Year of Transformation 2013.www.maryshurtleff.com
