Happy Lunar New Year! Well, it’s not actually until tomorrow, but the partying starts tonight. 4,700 years (well, using this particular calendrical system) and counting, baby.
And now, the public service portion of today’s post.
This is the year of the Female Black Sheep. Some to say goat, actually, but any horned cloven-hooved fluffy beast should do in a pinch. Why the specificity? It’s a Yin Water year. Yin is female, as most know by now. Water is usually equated with the color black, because otherwise, you get images of soggy lambs in scuba gear. (No. Actually, there’s better reasons than that involving cycles and representations, but who wants to hear me ramble on?) Since both the elemental cycle and the zodiac wheel will make full circle after this year, there will, astrologically speaking, be more changes than usual happening in the next several months.
