Welcoming the Year of the Wood Dragon

The Lunar New Year is coming up on February 10th! We are transitioning out of the year of the Water Rabbit and into the year of the Wood Dragon. What does this mean? E X P A N S I O N. Are you ready for it?

The Water Rabbit helped us dive into the depths of our internal and external relationships. If it felt like we were swimming near the ocean floor all year long, with an occasional glimpse of an angler fish’s light, that’s because we were! Rabbit taught us a lot about our intuitions, fears, and connections. We can thank it for shedding light on the deep dark corners of ourselves, so that now we can rise up and out of our dens and take flight into the sky with a greater sense of self, a truer version of confidence, and a clearer understanding of our relationships. 

What does Wood Dragon have to offer us? It’s time to get a different perspective. While Rabbit was the deep and internal, Dragon is the high and vast. This is a year of opportunity and expansion. Rabbit got us more clear on purpose so that Dragon can bring that purpose to life! Whatever is it that has felt hard to get a move on with, likely will feel like it has more momentum building now. Remember to take care and not get lost in the sky this year. Dragon can be so vast that it can forget about the relationships that were fostered during Rabbit. Harness that power that we are transitioning into, while also remembering the humility that we are leaving.

The subject of Chinese Astrology is a major love of mine (Dr. Lauren). If you are my patient, I likely have talked to you about your character already, and how that might relate to your experiences and shape your point of view. If this speaks to you, book your acupuncture appointment here and you can learn more about how the year that you were born in, might be playing a role in what ales you today. 

With lots of love, care and gratitude,
