2019 is the year of the yin (female) earth pig.

Yay. I think? 

This year is connected to the soil and the water and can be a year of relaxation  and carefreeness, but also climate instability.

Money and finances world wide could become less important or weak, as modesty and spirituality become more of a focus. 

As the last animal in the Chinese zodiac the pig likes to over-indulge but also realises the importance of a healthy body too.

The Year of the Monkey in General

We have a year of fun social times ahead of us, and it is relying on solid base of friends and family that will get us through difficult periods. The monkey is a social creature without inhibitions so get ready for the year to go quickly with lots of laughs.

Flexibility is the key as work and career opportunities may pop up suddenly and if you’re to prosper, act quickly, seize the moment. This is a year of innovation and fortune favours the bold.

It is a time to move forward with your plans and ideas, when at other times it may have seemed risky. Go ahead by trusting yourself to succeed.

My oil for the Year of the Monkey is LEMONGRASS. Lemongrass is great for energy, can help you be more flexible and is an oil of happiness. It is also an oil loved by many people, which could be a key ingredient to your own success – get everyone on your side.

Your Lucky Essential Oils for Chinese New Year – Year of the Goat

2015 is the Chinese Year of the Wood Goat. Also referred to as the Sheep, this year is a more congenial year for everyone, with a very social aspect. It is a good time to nurture creativity and to work with others to help fulfill your goals. The goat is a social animal, happy to get along with others and go with the flow.

We may see a burst of creativity internationally, in art and fashion, and a growing focus on sustainability in all fields of life. Contentment in familial relationships will help us to be happier with ourselves and in all our relationships too.

The essential oils that I love for everyone in this goat year are:

Patchouli – grounding and earthly ,peace, world peace

Ylang Ylang – release anger and frustration, an oil of love

Pine – inspirational, abundance through others, connect to mother nature
