Hope you are having a warm & joyful new year with your loved ones! Of course you may have a quiet new year by yourself. Ether way is excellent.
In Japan, this year (2017) is the year of rooster/cock based on the twelve signs of the Japanese zodiac. The year of rooster/cock means that the plant has grown and reached a stable state. The year of rooster/cock shows “yin + gold” which means a state where the fruits have reached full maturity.
I got a sense that the year of rooster/cock (2017) is going to be “growth and maturity” of heaven and earth.
May nature, animal and human beings have good harmony and live together with happiness.
