The start of each new year offers us the chance to begin again, at least in heart and spirit. It is a time to celebrate renewal and rebirth; a time to initiate new projects and to set new goals. We may also need to restate our commitment to ongoing projects at this time.

If you weren't ready to fully embrace the "new" on January 1st, tomorrow offers a second chance. This Chinese New Year--the Year of the Ox--begins on January 26th, and it is the year's biggest celebration in China and much of Asia. Also called the Lunar New Year and Spring Festival, the Chinese New Year is based on the Chinese calendar, which uses both Gregorian and lunar-solar calendar systems.

For those who want to begin new creative projects or complete ongoing projects, the Year of the Ox is seen to foster calm and determination, persistence and hard work--all of which will lead to greater productivity and prosperity, for individuals and collectively.

Please join the celebration--creatively! Gung hay fat choy!
