Using this year well will enhance next year. Climb up the mountain and plan for your future.
We all seem to love quotes on how to live better. Who doesn’t read their Chinese fortune in those horrible fortune cookies we get with our Chinese takeaway? Predictions and forecasts for our future are an addiction. Who doesn’t want to know what to expect so we can be better prepared and therefore have a happier-ever-after?
Well, one way is to get some idea of how to do things that will bring you more health, success, and happiness.
And that is exactly what I have for you!  Read on as I have some secrets to share with you specifically that will help you raise your awareness of your own energy and give you some exact things to be aware of next year to help the next 365 days be your best ever. Or at least to help you miss the big potholes.
The Chinese believe that we each have the energy of one of the 12 animals in their zodiac cycle. This is the Chinese version of astrology which was started in the Han Dynasty (202BC – 220BC) and its basically states that in learning about the animal sign we are most closely linked to we can better understand our own energy and find a more balanced manner to work with the energy of the world, nature, and others.
Western astrology is also a complex system of horoscope and it is based on 12 astrological signs so I am guessing there are many crossovers as there are with many religions once you look deep enough though I do not know this for certain.
Personally, the Chinese system appealed to me since it allowed me to see something from a different perspective and allowed me to gain insights into my own character.  I had never prescribed to western astrology before and I feel that it took a “foreign language” – the Chinese system – to open my eyes that were otherwise closed tightly against things I could not understand or use my logic to fathom. This was the beginning of my trust in the invisible and opening myself to the insights to myself offered from whatever means available to me.
So, the Chinese animal, the Fire Horse which is my Chinese animal, has given me a great deal of insight into myself and my own character. It has explained certain aspects of myself that I could not otherwise explain. This alone has given me a sense of peace and calm that I can better approach each day with. I am grateful that I became more open to this system of seeing the world and have added it to my own basket of beliefs since it fits and works for me.
