This week we celebrate Brighids day and the solar new year
While the lunar new year began on January 22nd 2023, the solar new year begins on February 4th.
Each year over a cycle of 9 years the energy shifts and the dynamic for the overall year shifts with it.
On Saturday 4th February we will run our annual Feng Shui for the Year Ahead online class which runs from 10am to 1pm. (Can’t make that time and day? No problem! this class will be recorded and available for you to view for the following 14 days)
Discover your own personal energy signature and how best to support yourself in your home in the year ahead.
