This new year in the Chinese calendar celebrates a new moon, and this auspicious lunar event also heralds in the month of Pisces. Pisces is a time of recovering lost dreams and rekindling our passions. Our greatest work during Pisces is to become filled with joy. It is a month of happiness, miracles and wonders. It affords us the ability to achieve mind over matter, to overcome our doubts, and connect to things of a higher order. This is an exceptionally powerful month and linking that to the Year of the Goat (which lies between a Fire and Metal year it means 2015 will be a turning point year for many people) making February / March a pretty punchy month.
Pisces is the only month that occasionally repeats itself in a single calendar year. Because of the difference between the lunar and the solar year, the sages add an extra month to the lunar year in order to balance the two. The months are then referred to as Adar I and Adar II. This instance occurs 7 times every 19 years. When we experience two months of Adar, we are given an extra dose of powerful energy. So prepare yourself for an exceptionally powerful month and embrace the tools you have at your disposal to recover your lost dreams. I wonder just how much joy can you take?
