Today is my 47th birthday.
I am a Capricorn, born at the tail end of the Year of the Earth Rooster.
Capricorn is an Earth sign. Ganeshaspeaks.com shares that Capricorns have many positive qualities: “Faithful, Ambitious, Self-controlled, Determined, Responsible, Sincere.”
According to ChinaHighlights.com, Earth Roosters are “lovely, generous, trustworthy, and popular with their friends.”
Whether or not you believe in astrology, you have to admit, it is fascinating. And I do see many of the characteristics listed in myself. I don’t know if I really believe in astrology, but I AM intrigued by the Earth parallels in both signs.
In 2015, when I turned 45, inspired by Chris Brogan, I picked 3 words to define my year: cashflow, sensei, and healthy. In 2016, my 3 words were listen, clear, and travel. I set intentions by choosing 3 words each year. I am happy with the results.
This year, I am breaking with tradition and picking just one word, inspired by the Earth parallels, and my desire to bring more focus and clarity into my life; My word for 2017 is grounded.
I see more tree poses in my yoga practice, a streamlining of projects, and a major decluttering in my future.
Did you pick a word, or 3, for 2017? Do share!
