social justice, community, family, and health

February 06, 2018

The lunar new year falls on the new Moon in Aquarius on February 15, 2018 at 1:05pm PST, also a solar eclipse, as we enter the year of the 'Earth Dog'. Social justice, community, family, and health are a few of the things that are coming up for me as I am digging into what 2018 has in store for us according to Chinese astrology. 

There is a lot of talk about 2018 being a turning point in human history. Did you know that Donald Trump is a (fire) dog? I'm so curious how this could all play out! Dog years are known to be a time of fairness and equality. 2018 is also the 'year of Saturn' as this planet has returned to his home sign in Capricorn for the first time in 30 years. Here is a brief history of what happened the last time(s) Saturn was in Capricorn.

When Saturn was in Capricorn in 1959, birth control became a thing, which led to the sexual revolution. From '61-'89, (an entire Saturn cycle in Cap!) the Berlin wall was a thing and it came down in '89, which led to a series of revolutions. Nelson Mandela, a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and political leader was in prison for 27 years, almost an entire Saturn cycle - and was released in 1990 to become president. Talk about a revolutionary!

With the combination of the year of the Dog (Chinese astrology) and the year of Saturn (Western astrology), controversial issues may come to a head. Revolutions are in favor, politics are liberal, and political oppression is rejected. Integrity (Saturn) and honesty/loyalty (Dog) are the values that will lead to success during this time. 

I also believe that 2018 is a very important time to take care of our communities, our people, our families, and most importantly, our health. We can't revolutionize our lives and the community at large with poor health, ya feel? We must take care of ourselves first so we can be strong and stable for our people. 

So, what do you want to revolutionize in 2018?

Let's do the work 
grab your journal
  1. What do you want to revolutionize in your life?
  2. What is the change you want to see in the world?
  3. What are some practical action steps you can take to start this ripple effect?
  4. How would you like to take care of your people in 2018?
  5. How do you need to improve your health in 2018?
  6. What are you willing to do about it?

I believe 2018 is a big year for collective transformation and revolution. I can already see it happening in a major way in the SOfit 3.0 community, so I know the ripple effect is real and present. I also mentioned in the first email I sent out this year that I had a feeling 2018 would be a big year for me personally around family. This is turning out to be way more true than I expected. With less than 2 months into the year, I have already been asked to step up in a way I have never stepped up before with my family. It's kinda surreal. I am ready and up for the challenge, but it is definitely changing the way I show up in the world in a way I have never experienced before. I'm ready. I'm excited.

What do you want to revolutionize this year? How do you want to be the change in the world? How do you want to show up for your people and your personal health?

2018 is in full swing. Lezgoooo <3
