MiamiHerald / The time has come to say goodbye to 2017 and welcome 2018 with happiness and positivity. After suffering so much pain and human and material losses in our beloved Puerto Rico, we are now in the process of recovering and recreating the island. In the Chinese calendar, it is the year of the dog — a year of new beginnings, awakening consciences and fighting for our rights. A year of learning and of putting to work what we learned in years past. We beseech the universal mother, the spiritual forces, our angels of light, to guide us and illuminate our path to a world of peace and love.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19) Symbol of fire, valor, daring, impetuous. For this year’s end, dress in red, which is your lucky color. Show off all of the beauty within you, highlighting your self assurance. Your home and everywhere you are must have a red candle and a red flower. You must burn a piece of paper with the list of all the negative things that happened during 2017. As it burns, you should welcome all positive things and pray that all of the negatives from the past not be repeated during your lifetime. For prosperity, put some coins on a small red dish by the entrance to your home. For love, make a small altar with two red apples, decorated with cloves and sprinkled with cinnamon. You should keep the altar during the first week of the new year. For good health, never forget to carry some jade and a carnelian stone. Your bath on New Year’s Eve should use honey, basil and your favorite perfume.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
