2021 YEAR OF THE METAL OX Begins February 4th

The new year has just begun based on the configurations of the planets and stars. This being the year of the Yin Metal Ox is a time for new beginnings. The Metal Ox year signifies the image of a diamond being dug out of the earth, a rebirth, something beautiful being born into existence. It’s a time for new ways of thinking and connecting with people, a new order being brought forth. Although don’t get too comfortable, we are not out of the woods yet, there are still issues present. With any birthing there are unknowns, the depths of which we do not know as difficulties are likely to arise. 

The energies require commitment and dedication with a back to basics approach to rebuild a foundation in both your career and personal life. There is still a flushing out of old energies being exhumed, it feels relentless, and yet the more we embrace change, the easier it becomes. If you resist, you are bound to feel the pressures mounting around you. The old normal no longer exists. 

Heal what is lingering to be healed as we transition into this new era, Use this year as a catalyst to move you towards your highest potential, it is a year for self discovery, to heal relationships and deepen communication. Align your actions to be a healing energy, how to help others heal, to make your business heal, to support others in doing better this year. Find ways to create unity. Be the voice of sanity and inspiration for others. 

Watch your thoughts, as we deepen our awareness we have the choice to be in charge of what we focus our minds on. You are in charge of creating your reality and no matter the conditions around you, you are capable of creating the outcome you desire. This is our work. 

“Red Cliff” by John Woo

I invite you to watch “Red Cliff”, a real story that took place during a Metal Ox year long ago in China. A famous battle that makes use of the art of timing along with an understanding of the environmental forces to triumph over adversity.



We are transitioning into a time of advanced technology, the development of new software and platforms, AI design. Anything to do with online presence and sales, logistics and digital applications that interface with our businesses. Think out of the box, be real, come from your heart to understand your options to make better choices and decisions. Things that have no real value don’t serve our needs anymore and will no longer persist. Lots of things will end, opening the door for new ideas and with that comes new competition. Be prepared.

When challenges occur consider whether it’s a crisis or an opportunity. Be curious, look at things as though they are happening for you. Ask yourself, what are you prepared to do to change your life for the better? We are entering a new frontier.

We can expect continued problems with health issues, vaccines can solve some issues and create new ones, be proactive if you have sensitivity with your lungs.

Choose to see what is coming, navigate any turbulence by getting out in front and strategizing a plan. See where there is hope for a bright future, reach deep within to connect with your heart to find your shining light to guide you, to empower you, to experience a fulfilling year ahead.


Take time during this next week to clean and cleanse your home. Get rid of things that no longer are needed, organize your closets, and get rid of clutter. Make room for what you want to make a fresh start. Pay attention to your outside space, the health of the plants and trees, take care of any neglected area. Any neglect can reflect what is showing up in your life, inside and outside.


(You can find your animal signs based on your birth chart on the internet – go to this site: www.dragon-gate.com/tool/bazi/ ) Depending where the animals are in your chart will determine how they impact your life.

Being an Ox year, for anyone born in the Ox year expect that you will stand out, it is your year to shine. Take advantage and promote yourself online, meet the right people to gain recognition. Set a plan into motion to elevate your status, do something great. Unexpected changes are likely to happen as well, seize the opportunity and trust whatever lessons show up are here to teach you, be courageous. Be cautious, you are more prone to accidents this year.

For those born in the Goat year you oppose the Ox and therefore can expect many aspects of your life to change. It’ll be a favorable year if you embrace the change, otherwise will be very challenging if you resist. Think transformational, determine what you want and get rid of what is not working, tackle the problems head on and likely to dissolve away. Adapt to and focus on helping others. More likely to move and definitely need to watch your spending, you’ll spend more so make it count.



The Metal Rat Year has just begun on February 4th, based on the Solar Calendar.  

January starts off with a bang with so many clients requesting updates to prepare for the year ahead, which keeps me working round the clock until now.  So, finally have a breather to put my thoughts together for this month’s newsletter, hope you enjoy.

Starting off with the Tiger month, it begins with a roar.  Tigers are known for their fierceness and protective nature. They have a stubborn streak and when teamed up with the Earth energy this month as well, only strengthens that resolve. On the other hand this is a month for exhibiting kindness, and getting the job done as Tigers have an amazing strength to push forward and the Earth adds to this with its groundedness and logical thinking.  No better time to put your plans into motion for what lies ahead this year.

Since this is the first month of the New Year let me give you some insights into the energies for the year 2020.  Being a Metal Rat year there is a focus on justice, and we can expect upheavals with highs and lows prevailing. Imagine a Rat in armor, ready to do battle. Yes, we will be tested, as you are already seeing with events around the world and here in America.  Be ready for the unexpected, it’s a rollercoaster ride ahead, everything from stagnation, to steadiness, to unexpected changes, both good and unwelcoming.  In business, this year the Earth element is exhibiting its full strength, and can expect any businesses related to construction, real estate, mining, and insurance to prosper. On the other hand businesses that will face a steep challenge are tourism, travel, shipping, and most affected is the aviation industries, as we already see happening.

How to thrive this year, in particular we can expect that help is on the way. Breathe slowly, step back and determine how you can play a proactive role in being part of the solution.  Find ways to be helpful to others, to bring us together. Determine commonalities that transcend the polarized viewpoints that are so prevalent. 

How can we create unity? What are the lessons to be learned, to find acceptance in who we are being. Not just for self, but also for the greater good. Trust that people and solutions show up. What you think and believe is what persists. This is a year where change is the prevailing course. Be honest and take a close look into your self. Where are our old conditionings that keep us small showing up, and how can I truly make a change to embrace my greatness. This is a warrior year, face your fears. I know this has been said over and over in recent years, but we are truly at the tipping point. The Metal Rat year is a powerful time; unrest is part of this energy, as this is often what is needed to bring about real change. Keep your eyes open, have an action plan ready to embrace the opportunities, and expect a year filled with excitement and challenge.  Charge ahead in the spirit of love and unity ….
