Don’t set your resolutions just yet. Wait until you’ve spent some time understanding your own motivations. You tend to be the realistic sort, which means that you can sometimes focus on accomplishments and opportunities instead of the rebellious urgings of your heart. The lunar new year, which began on January 24, was the beginning of your 本命年. This means that it’s time to be like the new moon: hiding in shadow, dreaming of a long sleep in a quest to find true self-acceptance. In February, with the sun and Mercury in your sign, you’ll receive the mental and emotional clarity to journal all the things that you didn’t quite understand about yourself. Take some time this month to review and focus on mending and comprehending this year.
If you’ve felt burnt out, it’s because you’re due for a year of retreat. To get where you want to go, remember that you need to crouch down low first. Spend a year nourishing and thanking yourself.
