Year of the Fire Monkey:
A Feminine Perspective
Many reviews of the Year of the Fire Monkey focus on how hot headed & dangerous fire can get, especially when teamed with a mischievous monkey. I’m going to shine a little light on aspects of the Fire element that support us to lead from the integrated feminine.
We’re entering into a Wood Season right now, but the Fire Monkey gives the entire year a unique flavor.
The Fire Element is ruled by the heart – so passion, joy, love & compassion can reign. Imagine being the benevolent ruler, tuning into her intuition and leading with love. Now, add in lots of opportunities to be in community– in celebration, collaboration and play.
Now, the other organs of the Fire Element have their influence too– the Pericardium, or Heart Protector, helps us discern what to let in and how open to be. The Small intestine sorts the pure from the impure – so while there may be some intensity, it’s to burn away impurities that may be blocking us.
And, the Triple Burner regulates the distribution of heat through the three key organ areas of the body to ensure that there is clear communication.
While getting into the organs here may feel off track from entrepreneurship & leadership, it’s actually crucial information. When you’re centered in your heart, discerning what is important to let in or let go, clearing out anything that doesn’t serve you, communicating clearly, while trusting your intuition more, then you can lead your team, show up for your clients, and network in communities that help you expand your reach.
And, when you're centered in love while leading from your heart, you become irresistible.
Practice: In any conflict or challenge, tune into your heart and let your intuition guide you. Have compassion for the other human beings in your life. And speak your truth with compassion and clarity.
Ask yourself, “What is my heart’s desire?” and be the woman who expresses those qualities.
