Happy Chinese New Year! While the new year actually began earlier this month, there's still plenty of time to calculate your Nine Star Ki for the upcoming lunar year and see what 2017 has in store for you. Over the last few weeks, we heard from experts on the Chinese Zodiac animals and their energies for the year, but I'm also a huge fan of Nine Star Ki in addition to the animal horoscopes. Listen in for how to calculate your number and what to expect this year!

I hope you are all as excited as I am for the new year! What does 2017 have in store for you? Does it match with your expectations?

If you have questions about your Nine Star Ki or want to learn more, feel free to send in your questions or schedule a consultation! You could even use our new 15-minute consultation call service for this!

You may notice that this episode is a bit off schedule. That's because it's our first holiday podcast this year, so we wanted to get it to you before Thanksgiving! This is a very special episode, because we'll be talking with one of my closest friends and one of my first and most amazing mentors, Rosalie Prinzivalli. The holidays are meant to be loving time spent with friends and family, but they can actually be very stressful, since we're all different people with different needs! Understanding the nine star ki dynamics can help us to handle this stress and actually enjoy peaceful, grounded holidays during this season, and Rosalie is an expert. Let's see what she has to say. :)

Hopefully each of you are feeling less stressed about going into the holiday season, thanks to Rosalie's advice! We're very grateful to Rosalie for sharing her insight. :)
