Lunar New Year 2021

On February 12th, the Chinese New Year celebrates the beginning of a new lunar year. From that day until January 31st, 2022, we are in the Year of the Ox.

A year of the Ox is not generally considered easy. It demands a lot from all of us. We have to be determined, hardworking, conscientious, and disciplined. And those who do this well will receive their reward later. Economically, it should also pay off because a Year of the Ox is considered a year of rich harvest and economic profits. That doesn't sound so bad and could motivate us to face upcoming tasks with confidence and tackle them energetically. So, anyone who continues their education in 2021, works on their next career step, or gets stuck in an exciting project will not regret it professionally or financially.

Privately, this year lends itself to regulating and organizing one's life. Things that have been lying around should finally be done. Those who would like to clean up his cellar for months should do this now, at last. Indeed, such tasks will now be more manageable. And who knows - maybe decluttering will also be fun!

In the Year of the Ox, the focus is also on interpersonal relationships. It's an excellent year to get married, start a family, or begin a community living project with good friends.

Here, in any case, you can find an exciting parallel to Saturn. For a Saturn year, it is also about creating clarity, bringing order to one's professional projects and relationships.
