I think most of us can agree that the last year or two were pretty tumultuous in many ways. Pretty soon however we are starting on a new year in the traditional Chinese calendar. Each year the Chinese mark the second new moon after Winter Solstice as the beginning of the new year, meaning this year (2018) that date will fall on February 16. In Chinese astrology the last two years were Fire years, helping us understand some of the tremendous tumult and change we have seen. However, we are coming up on Earth years, meaning that hopefully there will be a little more calm and stability.
