Here in the west, tomorrow EST February 8/9th, 2016 marks the beginning of Losar, the Tibetan Lunar New Year. 2016 is the year of the Monkey. So what is Monkey energy anyway? Here’s one interpretation from Raven Cypress Wood, an American who is studying Tibetan Bon culture:

Here’s some insight from Venus in the Fifth:

This is the reason why setting intentions during the new moon can be a powerful tool towards bringing awareness….Aquarius is the sign of liberation and freedom. Above all else during this time we need to question what we’re willing to fight for and what our place is when it comes to humanity. The new moons sextile to Uranus/Vesta in Aries brings about a forceful and radical approach to what we’re passionate about….” – Read the entire article on the website.
