The Spring Equinox marks the beginning of a cycle.
On this day, the Earth’s Northern and Southern Hemisphere are receiving the sun’s rays in equal proportion. Our ancestors observed this change and it became reason to celebrate.
The Christian community recognizes Easter as the most important and oldest celebration. Easter takes place the first Sunday after the first full moon following the Spring Equinox. However; Easter is only one of many Spring celebrations around the world.
In Feng Shui and Chinese Metaphysics, this time also marks the beginning of Spring, the growth Cycle and the element of Wood. Early Spring is Yang wood as the trees are the first ones to wake up from the winter’s sleep.
Like Trees that are waking up and extending their branches, so can we, I'm a symbolic sense. This is an opportune time to implement and activate the year's activities both personally and professionally.
For 2016, the year of the Fire Monkey there are some activities that are well aspected and go with the flow of the Fire energy.
Here is a list of them to help your action plan:
Networking. This is a great year to extend your circle of friends and colleagues. A great time to work in collaboration with others. The Relationship Area ( SW ) is where the #1 wealth energy resides this year. Working with others increases your community and helps expand your mission.
Helping Others. The element of Fire is about generosity and helping others. When they get ahead, so would you.
Many companies are making it their mission to help others in their brand and are giving back to communities around the world.
Fuel Industry. Anything that is considered fuel is a fire element. Petroleum products as well as engines, electronics and heat related fields would do well this year.
Metaphysics. This is the area that fuels our soul, therefore it is also well aspected. There are many local as well as online events popping up everywhere.
The Food and Beverage Industry. Nourishes and fuels our bodies. Natural and green food is no longer a trend, it is a reality.
Last but not least, the area of
Service and Promotion. Social media outlets and video is the trend now.
Used correctly, all these applications can help you make the best of this year personally and professionally.
What is in your action plan for this year?
