For my brain hackers, I posted a video this week on Covid Fatigue (depression)
which is absolutely common during this current cycle. But I promise, there
is plenty you can do to ensure your mental and emotional health:
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!
There is NO WAY we aren't celebrating the Chinese New Year with some fun
astrology and horoscopes!
So, get ready to look at your future from the lens of the Chinese Zodiac.
Year of the Metal Ox
According to mythology, the Jade Emperor was deciding which animal would be the first of the zodiacs. The Rat tricked the Ox into riding on his head, and at the final moment, jumped off and in front of him. Thus, the Ox is secondary in the Chinese Zodiac to the Rat.
The Ox is predominantly masculine in energy holding greater yang. My best comparison to western astrology might be Capricorn since the Ox is associated with traditional values, masculine pursuits and earth energy.
The Ox is well revered in the Chinese culture for its emphasis on hard work, honesty, humility and reliability. However, communication is a downfall for the Ox.
In the case of metal, their characteristics bring about good fortune financially but troubles in relationships. It's like the emperor that has gold to rely on, but not his people. It is an interesting dynamic that can point to the isolation and divisiveness we are currently enduring in our current culture.
What to Expect:
OX — 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, 1949, 1937 Ox's it's time to get working and put your feet where your mouth is (move it)! Do not worry, as the year goes along, things actually get much better! Your money will come from honest and hard work; refrain from gambling! If you're partnered, you are lucky and will have help in your business.

This can be a transformational and successful year for you!
TIGER — 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950, 1938 Tiger, you'll have an awakening this year! Money will be stable but you may feel lonely at times. Deepening your career is a good idea.
