Holi 2016

Happy Holi 2016

At Holi Hindus celebrate spring and certain events in Hindu mythology. It’s also known as the ‘Festival of Colours’ due to the practice of throwing and applying coloured water and powders on friends and family. This ritual is said to be based on the story of Krishna and Radha. Krishna would ask his mother why Radha was fair while he was dark, and she advised him to apply colour to Radha’s face to see how her complexion changed. At Holi images of Krishna and Radha are carried through the streets.

CHINESE NEW YEAR 2016

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR OF THE MONKEY – 2016

“2016 is the year of the Monkey according to the Chinese Horoscope Calendar. It is a Male Fire Monkey. Chinese apply Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth) into the Chinese calendar. Male Fire is in the Fire group. The color of Fire is connected to Red. Therefore, 2016 is the Red Fire Monkey Year.

In relation to the imagery of I-Ching Hexagrams and according to the Chinese Five Elements Horoscope – the prediction for 2016 Year of Monkey is that the Monkey contains Metal and Water. Metal is connected to gold. Water is connected to wisdom and danger. Therefore, we will deal with more financial events in the year of the Monkey. Monkey is a smart, naughty, wily and vigilant animal. If you want to have good return for your money investment, then you need to outsmart the Monkey. Metal is also connected to the Wind. That implies the status of events will be changing very quickly. Think twice before you leap when making changes for your finance, career, business relationship and people relationship”

GOOD LUCK AND PROSPERITY TO EVERYBODY!

Winter Solstice 2015

wintersolstice

Winter Solstice 2015 – Yule

The winter solstice, the rebirth of the Sun, is an important turning point, as it marks the shortest day, when the hours of daylight are at their least. It also the start of the increase in the hours of daylight, until the Summer Solstice – when darkness becomes ascendant once more.   it is on this the longest night of the winter, ‘the dark night of our souls’, that there springs the new spark of hope, the Sacred Fire, the Light of the World.

Fire festivals, celebrating the rebirth of the Sun, held on the Winter’s Solstice can be found throughout the ancient world, from the Roman to the Persian, the Nordic and Greek populations.

Wishing you all a significant day and wishful thoughts for the new year ahead
