In a recent interview with The New York Times, I spoke about the importance of both yearly and 60 year cycles for the world, the home and business.
The yin muddy pig (2019) is the end of the 12 year animal cycle and the white metal rat ( 2020) will start a fresh new cycle. There is however a much larger 60 year cycle. This cycle pairs each of the 12 animals with one of the five elements; water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. It is important to realize that if we go back 60 years to 1959, or even 60 years earlier to 1899, we can get a feel for what the year of the “ muddy earth pig” holds. 1959, was a very yin year, but then the next year, the “Yang Metal Rat” thrust us into the cultural revolution of the sixties and 1899 thrust us into ”the second industrial revolution” in the 1900’s.
There are also monthly and daily cycles of qi which flow just like the 60 year cycle ( leap years add a bit of confusion!!,) but April is always ruled by the dragon. This year it is, 戊 辰 Wu Chen, the Yellow Dragon, that begins Friday, April 6th and lasts until May 4th. The auspicious and non auspicious dates are based on both the yearly, the monthly, and daily qi.
Following are the auspicious and non-auspicious days for the “yang mountain dragon.”
Remember to check the chart to seewhether your sign clashes with the day’s energy. If it does, the day is not good for you. For example, if it is a dog day, (like April 7,) it is not a good day for a dragon, because the dog energies clash with those of the dragon.

Recently when discussing meteors with some high school students, I suddenly realized that shungite is really over a million years old!! I always say it, but I realized I was holding a stone a million year old. It made me value it more and to honor all of the catastrophes it has survived. It holds so much power.
