Apply: Inner Truth
Some would say that, when work is going well, the relationship side of life can often appear to fall apart. Dog is a highly social sign and, although you would like to run with the pack, this could get you into hot water with your nearest and dearest. Therefore, at the beginning of the year, be honest about what you have planned. More importantly, be realistic about others’ feelings and then you’ll avoid becoming hyper sensitive and over reacting yourself.
Rooster was a demanding year and you’ll adjust slowly to the first few months of Dog year. Therefore, give yourself time to rebalance and adapt to the change of pace as well as to the level of emotional honesty that’s required this year to feel purposeful, creatively encouraged, and confident.
