One thing you might be finding jarring about New Year celebrations is that in Western culture the new year is celebrated based on a man-made calendar. This is known as the Gregorian calendar, that divides the year into 12 months of varying lengths.
As you know I’m all about lining up with natural rhythms and cycles, or Universal Qi. From this perspective the new year doesn’t start for another couple of weeks. According to this cosmic perspective, the wheel of the year is measured by the LUNAR CALENDAR, which is 13 months of approximately 28.5 days each.
