August 2 - August 8, 2021
This is a back to front week, with the playful month of the Goat the dominant force during the working week while the busy and industrious Monkey will working to make its presence felt over the weekend. While the month of the Monkey doesn't fully take over until next Monday, in time to hit the new working week running, a Monkey Moon will begin a crossover from Saturday. With the month of the Goat still in effect over the weekend, there will not only be a call to embrace the weekend spirit but to work with the Monkey Moon to set guardrails in place for the right balance between work and play.
Year of the Ox
Feb 12, 2021 - Jan 31, 2022
Whether it is the ongoing impact from the professionally charged and competitive Year of the Rat or the start of the social and serendipitous Year of the Ox on 12th February, 2021 should be a good year for the Rabbit. The Year of the Ox manages to thread the needle nicely between avoiding a year with too many challenges but not so easy that it can lead to complacency. Because the Year of the Rat doesn’t end until 12th February and because this has been an especially long lunar year, this has given you a chance to get a jump on your 2021 professional year or on your personal and professional goals and ambitions and to gain enough momentum so that this continues even after the Year of the Rat ends. For the Rabbit, the Rat was a professionally charged and competitive year, inspiring you to reach higher, aim for more and while it can inspire a grandiose sense of what’s possible, even if you achieve half of what you aimed for you could still achieve a lot.
This is also why the Year of the Ox can have a more widespread influence than what it says on the bottle. For the Rabbit, what comes written on the bottle for the Year of the Ox is that this is an important year for friendship, teamwork, collaboration and for teaming up with others. This is a socially charged year, where you are more likely to find yourself being a team player and you will accomplish a lot when you join forces with others. This is something that will happen naturally and regardless of how wide the circle of people in your life, this is likely to grow during the course of the year. There is another factor that could see the impact of the Year of the Rat continue and even run in tandem with the Year of the Ox.
While, for the Rabbit, the Ox has a more social influence by its nature it is determined, pragmatic and tenacious. When under the Ox’s influence you are more likely to stick to something and to see things through. This is why teamwork will be such an important factor this year, for if you commit to standing by or working with someone, you will do just that. The Year of the Rat has been good at inspiring your personal and professional goals and ambitions but the Rat lacks the Ox’s endurance, tenacity and team spirit. It is the goals and ambitions that carry over into the Year of the Ox that can become more entrenched and you are more likely to stick to them. This means that the Year of the Ox has all the makings of a good year personally and professionally, especially when you team up with or network with others.
