Kung Hei Fat Choi–Welcome to the Year of the Rabbit

4 Feb

 After a wild ride in 2010, I’m a little glad to be out of the Year of the Tiger and starting the Year of the Rabbit. We’re now in the second day of the New Year, so…exactly what does it mean to be a rabbit?

Well, it’s sure to be a quieter year than last. A year for comfort and longevity, which can mean great things for those of us who raise money. We’re compelled by the hare to listen, observe and act quickly when necessary. Which makes a lot of sense to me as we’re still in the throes of a recession–I don’t care how much we want to cast off that word, people are still unemployed or underemployed.

This year your donors need you to listen. You need to observe their actions as well as their inactions. This is the year for sensitivity and empathy.

Because the major element guiding this year is Metal, that puts a more dynamic spin on the situation. Which brings into play the ability to act quickly, make decisions and move forward when opportunity presents itself. In feng shui, anything related to glass, including mirrors is considered to be part of the element of Metal. So Metal will help us see more clearly this year. Metal can also be honed and sharpened, giving us the ability to just let things go–to cut off or sever things we don’t need anymore.

So. This year, how can you listen better, take advantage of more opportunities, see clearer and let go of that which does not work?

For more about the Year of the Rabbit, I invite you to read more from the Western School of Feng Shui, which is what I practice.

Kung Hei Fat Choi!
