Chinese New Year year of the snake
This is the year of BLACK WATER SNAKE.

The color Black in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is associated with the Kidneys. The element for Kidneys is Water. The season for Kidneys is Winter (that is right now).  The emotion is FEAR.

Kidneys rule lower back. So this year, watch your BACK figuratively and literally, snakes byte.  If you have back problems, you may feel them more so this Winter.

This is the year to understand and learn from your fears, the year to be more flexible and learn wisdom from yourself and others about yourself. 

Snakes have venom so be prepared to come on top in difficult situations. Snakes coil and move from side to side, so be prepared for twists and turns of events.  Let go of small stuff and be wise in approaches to significant events.  Remember that sometimes it is better to lose or give in to a small dispute or event, only to prepare to win the in the final round of the big one. 

lotus seed, Chinese New Year
 The picture on your left is sweet dumplings with lotus seeds that is traditionally eaten on Chinese New Year. (Thank God not a live snake :)
 Lotus seed has medicinal value. The seed is good for the Kidneys and helps restore vital energy in the body.

Stay well and once again Happy Chinese New Year.
