Chinese New Year 2013

Chinese New Year begins on Sunday February 10, 2013 this year.

Chinese New Year always begins on a New Moon.

The celebration typically begins two weeks before the New Moon of Chinese New Year, and is celebrated for another two weeks beyond the New Moon, which finishes with the celebrations on the Full Moon.

From Full to New to Full Moon

The Full Moon is on Monday February 25, 2013.  So, the celebration is a month long really – starting at the Full Moon in January, culminating in the New Moon with a fresh new start to the year with private parties at home with family and friends.  The completion of the celebration within community and business relationships is on that Full Moon.

Clear out the Old

Cleaning is typically a big part of preparation for Chinese New Year.

So, sweep out what is old and no longer working for you.  Choose a new pair of shoes and clothes to wear as you step out into the world this Chinese New Year.

Forgive past grievances, and make good on your financial debts.  This is all part of the new part of New Year.

If we all did this every year, we all would be lighter in our hearts and minds.  So, what are you letting go of as the Moon wanes from Full to the quiet day just before the New Moon?

The RED day on my Conscious Calendar fell the day before Chinese New Year, because the RED day lands the day before the New Moon 90% of the time.

Nurture your Dreams

And then, what are you calling into your life with the fresh new start this spring?  Let the Earth support your new projects like seeds well planted, watered and loved.

Grow your Health

May your dreams blossom, and health be with you in every breath, is my wish for you this New Year.
