Year of the Monkey

Hi there, this piece is adapted from our Raven Almanack of Moveable Feasts for 2016

The Year of the Monkey
      This is a time for innovation, exploration and for all new and exciting ventures.
      If there is something you have always fancied trying, whether this is exotic cuisine, a new career or flower arranging, this is the year to try it out. This is a good time to take up any hobby for self-improvement, whether it is improving your mind or body or learning a new skill from pottery to a new language.
     The Year of the Monkey can be a year of risk and rebellion, of learning how to let go and go with the flow, or equally learning how to stand up for your own principles and beliefs. Be prepared for change, be brave, but think before you act.
     There may be times of instability or uncertainty, and you may have to try new or unconventional solutions to your problems. But there will also be times of huge excitement and exuberance - and unexpected triumphs and celebrations.
     This is not going to be a quiet year.

I am the seasoned traveller
Of the labyrinth
The genius of alacrity,
Wizard of the impossible
My brilliance is yet unmatched
In its originality.
My heart is filled with potent magic
That could cast one hundred spells,
I am put together
For mine own pleasure
