Last year was a Tiger year, this year is a Rabbit year, and next year is a Dragon year. 2010, was a powerful year, 2011 will be a relaxing(healing), and 2012 will be a transitional(wild) year. A Rabbit year is one that should be used to relax, heal past relationships, travel, and make peace. The element that governs Rabbit is earth, however the element that is associated with this 2011 Rabbit year is metal, which indicates money and life should be kept simple. Spend wisely, keep the home uncluttered, and live a more minimalistic life.
Following the Chinese tradition; yesterday and today I spent clearing up my room and discarding items that were no longer necessary. I love spring cleaning and often clear up my space every season. A clear space equals a clear mind.
Will you honor the Chinese New Year by spring cleaning? What traditions do you follow?
