Happy Year of the Dragon!

Year of the Dragon
(created by Germain Ricardo (@germainjricardo))

This past Saturday was the Lunar New Year.

Happy New Year to those that celebrates!

Our family doesn't celebrate Lunar New Year however, I like to read up on the energetics of the year. It helps me get a feel of the year, what to focus on and which aspects are supported this year.

In Lunar New Year, each year is associated with one of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac and one of the five elements. Feb. 10, 2024 marks the start of the Year of the Green (Wood) Dragon. Below are some points that I took from reading this article from the Lotus Institute:


  • Make space for transformation.
  • Let go of the old, negative emotions and those that are no longer serving you.
  • Cleanse the body, mind and spirit.
  • Support the digestive system by processing emotions such as anger, frustration and irritation.
  • Be mindful of the opposite energy of that which is timidity and powerlessness.
  • It is the year to take action, apply changes that is based in your passion, heart and truth.
  • Of course, weigh all options before taking action.
  • Move your body, ground yourself and go out into nature.

Do any of these resonate with you? And, maybe there's some activities/decisions that you've been inspired to do that ties with the aspects above?
