Ahh, interesting, very interesting

Predictions for the New Year.

What will the New Year hold for me?  Can anyone really predict the future with complete accuracy? Probably not, and I say probably since there is a probability that there is at least one person among seven billion that can.  In my real estate profession I get asked all the time what do I think is going to happen? Idk. I can make a educated guess based on patterns and indicators, but that is all it is, a guess. Are predictions that, educated guesses?
I have begun studying Chinese Astrology and Feng Shui, just bits here and there, because my paying job has kept me fairly busy lately, but I can say this, 2016 and until about January 28, 2017 is and has been the year of the Fire Monkey, and there has been lots of monkey business going on, everywhere.  We will be moving into the year of the Fire Rooster, coincidence that the Presidential Inauguration is January 20th?  Usually the Chinese New Year is in the first few days of February, early this next to accommodate the new banty rooster?  I do predict there will be lots of posturing this coming year and I hope they don't become rooster, 'cock' fights.

The six of coins or pentacles indicates some prosperity, generosity, and charity and with that thought I will suggest you get yourselves ( I have mine in the fridge) some oranges, six should do it and roll them into your front door in the New Year for additional prosperity to show up in your home and life.  (The Chinese consider oranges very lucky.)   Besides the oranges at this time of year are very delicious and healthy for us too.  I just thought of this...I guess I will roll oranges in my front door January 1 and January 28 to cover all bases.  Whew, almost missed that possibility.

  1. I'm wild about the Cara Cara oranges I sometimes find rather than plain old Sunkist. The Cara Cara have pink meat and are very juicy. What a fun idea.

    1. Roll them "into" (at) the front door or through/over the threshold? Inquiring minds need to know

    2. I bought a bag of oranges the other day and they are delicious. I need to keep some of them to do this new tradition.

    3. Roll them in to the front door. That brings the New Years prosperity to your threshold. A bag of oranges or at least six of them like the six of pentacles.
      See my family tradition to Bev's comment below.

  2. Never heard of rolling oranges before (though down here there will be plenty of black-eyed peas and turnip greens!). :)

    1. When we were children my Father and Mother let us stay up to ring in New Year. The tradition they passed on to us was to open back door and then front door and to stand at both with brooms to sweep the old year out and the new year in. I still do it to this day. If I don't make it to midnight first thing I do on New Years day is open the back door to let the old out and then get to front door and sweep the New Year in. This year I will add rolling oranges in and over front door threshold.

    2. Traditional New Years Day dinner is boiled potatoes and cabbage with a silver coin in the pot.
