Tired of take out or frozen dinners for one? Maybe you don’t know how to meet someone after a long relationship has ended. The good news is that the Chinese New Year is an auspicious time to begin the New Year with an eye toward the future – and that includes the future of your love life!
The Chinese New Year is the annual celebration that coincides with the first New Moon of the year. For the Chinese, this is a very auspicious time — a birthday, actually, of the New Year. This birthday, when observed correctly, is believed to usher in good luck and abundance all year long.
It’s resolution time. How fun. But let’s forget about those for a moment. Getting to the end of the year and greeting a brand new calendar, a new birthday, another anniversary or just another year may seem overwhelming. To some it’s a clean slate, a chance to start over fresh. And yet, to others, it’s a mix of the two.
At the beginning of the New Year we buy a new calendar and flip to the first page marked January. We pack up our Christmas decorations, put away our new sweater and gifts and look guiltily at the boxes of chocolates that we leave out “for company.” But few of us really expect a truly new year.

As the New Year approaches, you may find yourself thinking over the past year and you may be thinking about making New Year resolutions. Maybe you’re counting your blessings or thinking about what you could have done differently. If you’re like me, you might do a little of both. Whatever the case, it’s important to start the New Year off on a positive, hope-filled note.This can include everything from stocking the refrigerator to clearing out old junk from the closets. If you’ve missed the January 1st deadline, don’t worry: the Chinese New Year isn’t until a few weeks later…. so you’ve still got time!
