Year of the Earth Pig
January–February 2019 • Vol 3, No 102
A very Happy New Year to you, and welcome to a new beginning that is promising to be anything but “boaring”! The Year of the Earth Pig — also known as the boar in Chinese astrology — commences on February 5, 2019, and marks the initiation of a cycle with much potential for healing and spirituality for those who desire to immerse themselves in the good qi of this year.
The Year of the Pig is the culmination of the 12-year rotation of the Chinese zodiac, bringing an opportunity to ponder and review the accomplishments and defeats of the last 11 years to prepare for the new zodiac rotation in 2020. It is a year of reflection and renewal and can bring a relief from past burdens and a welcome lightness to our hearts and minds. It is important though, to always be alert to those energies that would steal our qi, whether an individual or
an idea that is not beneficial in the long run.
