Happy Lunar New Year: The Celebration Begins
happy_new_year.jpg

Just because the new year has begun doesn't mean you're allowed to rest.

While most countries that observe Lunar New Year offer three to seven days of public holidays, celebrations don't end until the 15th day of the first lunar month, also known as the Lantern Festival. (Lunar New Year in 2019 lasts from February 5 to February 19.)

There is a list of superstitious dos and don'ts for the new year but the rule of thumb is to say a lot of "kung hei fat choy"or "gong xi fa cai," and avoid saying things that may sound like a less auspicious word.

During the festival, people will travel around to visit relatives, who will prepare snacks and fill up candy boxes for the visits -- except for the third day of the month.

It's believed that arguments are more likely to happen on that day -- February 9, this year -- called chi kou (or "red mouth"). Hence, most people will engage in other activities like visiting a temple. In Hong Kong, a major spring festival horse racing event takes place every year on the third day.

During the 15 days, married couples have to give out red packets filled with money to children (and unmarried adults) to wish them luck.

The seventh day is renri, or the people's birthday (February 11). when the Chinese mother goddess Nuwa is said to have created mankind.

The highlight comes on the last day, during the Lantern Festival (February 19).

Being the only day when young girls in ancient Chinese society could go out to admire lanterns and meet boys, it's also been dubbed Chinese Valentine's Day.

Nowadays, cities around the world still put on massive lantern displays and fairs on the 15th day of the festival.

Some create more sparks than others. Like Nuanquan, a small Chinese town that puts on a spectacular "firework" show by throwing molten metal against a cold stone city wall.

Kung hei fat choy!

The Month of the Metal Rooster of the Chinese calendar starts on September 10th, 2018 and ends on October 8th, 2018. On September 9th, the new moon announces the passage in the Chinese calendar from the Metal Monkey Month to the Month of the Metal Rooster of the Year of the Earth Dog 2018.

The return of the summer vacation is more often synonymous with excitement at the prospect of developing future vacation plans rather than the excitement of meeting one's office colleagues. It is important to always be conscientious during the 2018 Month of the Rooster, avoid making abrupt decisions and pay attention to words that may offend the sentience of loved ones. The dictates of accuracy and the requirement of perfection can compromise an ever-fragile harmony.

According to the monthly Chinese horoscope of September 2018, the Rooster reminds everyone of their sense of responsibility, commitment and the importance of striving towards an irreproachable organization of their business. Similarly, the Rooster (of the month) placed under the astrological sign of the Dog (of the year) has the potential to transform the beginning of autumn 2018 into moments of joy and sharing.

ENERGIES OF THE METAL ROOSTER MONTH 2018 FOR THE 12 SIGNS OF THE CHINESE CALENDAR

According to the Chinese horoscope, the excess of an element is always synonymous with a simultaneous deficiency. As of September 10, 2018, the Metal element is up sharply in the Chinese calendar. The Wood and Water elements undergo an important decrease in their respective levels: Wood and Water are periodically deficient in the energetic chart of the 5 elements of Chinese cosmology and Feng Shui.

A Month of the Rooster during a Year of the Dog is sprinkled with moments of stress and paranoia that can occur without warning in a professional context. Excess in Metal can cause big stock market fluctuations and an increase in financial risk-taking. At the same time, the decrease in Wood and Water during the Chinese month of the Rooster benefits business activity, which translates into a significant increase in productivity. However, it should be remembered that in the event of ethical misconduct during a Dog-controlled year, appetite for gain can quickly become an indigestible poison.

On the social level, excess in Metal can lead to a tendency to idealize luxury, opulence and temporal power. Similarly, if a lack of Wood can lead to feelings of guilt or a depressive crisis in the event of unresolved litigation, the lack of Water can cause anxiety or even panic in the face of events that rather deserve to be analyzed coldly.

THE WOOD SNAKE POSSESSES A WISDOM AND A MAGNETIC VITAL FORCE WHICH FORCE THE ADMIRATION OF HIS PEERS AS MUCH A THE ELEVEN OTHER SIGNS OF THE CHINESE ZODIAC.
His seductive power is not, however, an artifice at the service of a passing whim. Quite the contrary, the Wood Snake knows how to use his many talents in the service of the arts, culture, not forgetting his personal enrichment. Faithful to those he loves, the Wood Snake can nevertheless be narcissistic, but who could blame him, in front of such generous charm and seemingly unlimited talents?

A day of the Wood Snake is ideal for making big decisions. If you can find a quiet and secluded place, you can decide with lucidity and serenity of important subjects concerning your private and professional life.
