Year of the Pig
Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! This week’s reading comes to us today to reflect important advice to use throughout the Year of the Pig. The Wheel is here to remind us that change is inevitable in life. While the Year of the Pig promises to bring comfort, joy, and prosperity, there are also negative aspects of this sign that we should remain mindful of to obtain all the abundance that is being offered to us. While Pig natives like to enjoy the finer things in life, this can result in overindulgence, laziness, and complacency. Don’t allow yourself to get stuck in a rut this year! There is too much being offered to us, so hang on tight and enjoy the ride!

The Pig marks the end of the 12-year cycle in the Chinese zodiac. For Pig natives like myself, this marks the end of one cycle, while transitioning to the beginning of a new one. How we adapt to change is what is going to make or break us this year. The Wheel brings about good luck, good fortune, and good timing; and so does the Year of the Pig! The key to making the most of this year is to be mindful of balance in our lives. “Know thyself; and nothing in excess,” this is a phrase to keep at the front of our minds in 2019. Overindulgence and complacency could find us struggling to obtain what we want when there is no need for struggle at all. We should look at every change in our lives as a means to find something we are meaning to manifest. If we can find the balance in our life of enjoyment and hard work, we will find ourselves flowing with the change of life instead of becoming a cog in the wheel.
2019 marks an important year for Mindfulness in our lives. The more mindful we are, the more aware we will become of overindulging, overspending, or simply doing anything in excess. This week is an excellent week to read up on Mindfulness, if you haven’t already. It’s easy to get caught up in the enjoyment we find in our life and accidentally push to the side obligations that are setting us up for future success. While we should not feel ashamed in enjoying life’s pleasures and all it has to offer, mindfulness will allow us to bring balance in our lives so that extra piece of cake we enjoy will be met with an extra 20 minutes at the gym the next day. We can have fun and be responsible at the same time, and we can also have faith that we can have it all.
The Year of the Pig brings about immense optimism, as does The Wheel with it’s gifts of good luck and good fortune. Don’t allow feelings of self-doubt to filter in when things just seem to work out as if it’s “too good to be true.” Your reality is what you make it and with the prosperous energy being gifted to us this year, the only person holding you back is YOU. Keep a clear focus, keep a joyful optimism, and a positive determination and nothing can stand in your way!
Cheers to a joyful and prosperous 2019! You deserve it!
