Partial solar eclipse and another New Year
Currently in the world, along with political and social events, are the natural, interpretive, and cultural ones, too. We live in a busy time in our galaxy, and I wanted to take a moment to wish you once again a Happy New Year, [Gung Hay Fat Choy], and invite you to take a moment to contemplate the universe.
Here is a great site to explore the partial solar eclipse going on now, and able to be seen in parts of New Zealand and Australia.
For an astrological perspective on how this natural event affects and intersects with Politics, go here.
Chinese New Year 4706 is here! I wrote elsewhere that my extended family celebrates this holiday, and it works as a better “New Year” celebration for me, personally, than does January 1st, because I’ve had some time to settle down after the frenzy of late December, and look at things from a quieter perspective. This blog does a great job of outlining some aspects of the Year of the Rat, including things we can make and do to celebrate.
And do see my friend Walkingbetween‘s great post and links about this year. Apparently, this is an “Earth Rat” year! Time to get grounded, folks! 😀
Here’s a New Year’s Quiz!
