Chinese New Years each have their own energy. The Earth pig year officially starts on February 5 and has a focus on abundance and enjoying life. There is definitely a lighter tone in pig years. Playfulness and humor are often associated with such a year.
Remember daily the bigger picture of why you are alive and how you can be an integrated part of humanity’s awakening. Allow that higher awareness to sit in the forefront of your mind as you go about your day. Trust that in the simple act of doing this, you are helping to transform the world and contributing to your own enlightenment.
Happy soon to be Chinese New Year!

Happy Full Moon! A super blood wolf moon occurs when a total lunar eclipse happens during a full moon, according to Space.com. Since this one’s in January, it’s traditionally called the wolf moon. Native Americans came up with this term because “it appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages. It’s called a blood moon because the rays of the sun could color it so that the moon appears red.
The super blood wolf moon will fit right into your good vibes only lifestyle. People will feel passionate and emotional. Part of this passion and emotion is connected to what your beliefs are about what is right for humanity.
That may mean you find yourself gravitating towards feeling strongly about getting back to following your path and the things that bring you personal joy. There will be a drive to make some readjustments in your life and you”ll want to do what makes you happy.

The Solar Eclipse on January 5, 2019 is positive thanks to a close alignment with the harmonious fixed star Vega. This star has an optimistic, generous, poetic, and creative influence.
This is an excellent solar eclipse for starting or growing a business. It is ideal for creative, musical and artistic projects and encourages acts of kindness and charity.
An eclipse accompanying the New Moon has a dynamic impact, prolonging the effects on all zodiac signs for as long as six months, instead of the usual four weeks.
This means all the cosmic seeds you plant now will be powerful game-changers, especially around professional endeavors.
Happy New Moon!
love, k 🙂
First day of Winter ❄️ Happy Winter Solstice!
Looking for a great way to make Gingerbread Cookies this holiday season?
Tis almost the season for gingerbread cookies, a Christmas tradition. We think of “traditional” Christmas flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, and those are exactly the same spices medieval cooks would have used in their cookies ages ago. Gingerbread is a classic Christmas cookie, and yet it’s also a cookie that would have tasted strikingly similar back in the Middle Ages.
Winter solstice festivals have been held for eons, across the world. From Norway to West Africa, Ireland to India, groups of people gathered to celebrate the changing of the seasons. Celebrations revolved around food; after all, you had to feast before the famine of the winter.
By the Middle Ages, the Christmas holiday had overtaken solstice rituals throughout much of present-day Europe. The old feast traditions remained. And while the roast and drink recipes were probably quite similar to what earlier Europeans had enjoyed, the pastry world was experiencing some amazing changes. Spices like nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper were just starting to be widely used, and dried exotic fruits like citron, apricots and dates added sweetness and texture to the dessert tray. These items, along with ingredients like sugar and butter, would have been prized as expensive delicacies by medieval cooks. Only on the most important holiday could families afford treats like these, which led to a baking bonanza to prepare for Christmas. And unlike pies or cakes, cookies could be easily shared and given to friends and neighbors. Our modern Christmas cookies date back to these medieval gifts.
Festive and fun gingerbread cookies are what we are baking today. These gingerbread men are crisp on the outside , soft on the inside and packed with ginger and everything Christmas.

Choose thoughts that make you happy now. Whether these are joyful memories, thoughts of appreciation about the present, or thoughts anticipating wonderful things to come, any thought that makes you happy puts you in touch with the love that is ever-present in the moment.
When traditions and memories inspire a sense of happiness within you now, enjoy them!
If traditions or memories no longer give you joy or don’t resonate with you now, choose to focus on something different, new, or better.
Your holidays are a celebration of light birthed in darkness. By choosing the thoughts that make you happy now, you birth the light into your life… one day, one thought at a time.
love, k 🙂
