Hello, Monkey! You’ve been a crazy year… so far!
Summer Solstice has come and gone–a signal that we are now in the second half of the crazy Monkey Year and in full swing into the Yin Energy. Indeed, it has been a busy and dynamic year!
Elementally speaking, the Monkey — a Metal Element — carries the essence of change and transformation. It deliberately provokes us to evaluate and revolutionize our ways of being because status quo is no longer acceptable or relevant.
In Grand Master Raymond Lo’s 2016 Monkey Forecast, he said the theme of the Yang Fire Monkey year is called the “setting sun.” It means the current time calls for the death and re-birth of all things. It is only in endings when new beginnings can start.
That means this year: We have to let go, purge, “pull the plug,” “cut the cord,” say our goodbyes, close the chapter, wipe the slate clean, make peace, and move on. We have to. The energy of the Monkey Year demands it. And we are summoned to stand up to the plate and face our struggles, insecurities, fears, and inner demons (if you have any). It’s time for the re-branding of self.
To do so, we must cultivate the strength in light of adversity and be brave to do what’s never been done before. Have the gumption to stand up for what’s right and the compassion to release the grudge and forgive.
The events of 2016–no matter how they may have manifested in your life through health, work, or relationship–are synchronistic. And they have catapulted each and every one of us to examine our ways of living more honestly. In other words, the energy is helping to re-align us not just with our dreams and deepest desires, but also with our destiny–the journey that we are meant to be on.
And that is one exciting ride!
On August 8th, the energy of the month will duplicate with the energy of the year–mirroring the theme of the current year. Keep up the momentum! But do buckle up, it’s going to be a wild ride!

Adversity: “Search for the seed of good in every adversity. Master that principle and you will own a precious shield that will guard you well through all the darkest valleys you must traverse. Stars may be seen from the bottom of a deep well, when they cannot be discerned from the mountaintop. So will you learn things in adversity that you would never have discovered without trouble. There is always a seed of good. Find it and prosper.” – Og Mandino
