Happy New Year!

It's the year of the Tiger!

Tiger years are very exciting! People born in Tiger years are lively, dynamic, compassionate, and passionate. Tigers are fearless. They pursue their dreams with impulsive, reckless abandon. They are not held back by fear or concern for material wealth or security. Tiger people are also compassionate: they love babies and care deeply for endangered, orphaned or sick animals.

The fearless Tiger sign also wards off the three main dangers to the home: fire, thieves and ghosts.

Whether you were born in a Tiger year or not, this is the year to follow your dreams! Tiger energy is in all of us, and will be stirred up this year. Uncover the dreams you had as children, you may have to search deeply and dust them off, but this is the year to recover them. If you need help remembering, I highly recommend acupuncture at The Birch Center, (I'll post an article on this in the next couple days) and the book The Artist's Way, by Julia Cameron.

Tigers are also compassionate. Your compassion will also be stirred this year: what do you care deeply about? What causes are closest to your heart? This is worth giving thought to, as this year you may be able to offer time, talent or money to causes that matter most to you.

Welcome Year of the Tiger! It's going to be a great year...enjoy it to the fullest!
