Have you hear the saying, "Out of chaos comes order?" The year 2015 is going to be the year of endless possibilities, in numerology, Western Astrology, Chinese Birth Charts and Feng Shui. Out of the chaos of 2014's Wooden Horse we see the new beginning shift into order. With the knowledge contained  in this blog you can arm yourself with the necessary information to make great choices in health, wealth and love in the up coming new year. Your dreams may be more important for guidance  than ever before. 

Do you ever pray for help?  The answers may come in your dreams. Those dreams can be daydreams; moments when your mind wanders to a beach beyond time and space and wades in the waters of Universal Wisdom from the Ocean of Gnosis, the esoteric knowledge of spiritual truth. There, we receive answers from our Higher Power.

As a three-time breast cancer survivor whose dreams diagnosed illness missed by the medical community and the tests on which they relied, I understand the importance of dreams, female intuition and Inner-guidance, which diagnosed my stage-four breast cancer recurrence. That is as lucky as winning the lottery three times in a row. Luck had little to do with it. Divine intervention did. I learned that the power of science goes so far, and then comes our Higher Power. 

 We were all born with Guardian-angels and Spirit-guides. We are their job and they take that job seriously.  Dreams are doorways to Inner-guidance where your ET (Eternal Teacher) phones home for help during difficult times. Miraculously, someone always answers the call. How will the astrological and numerical changes in 2015 effect your dreams for Inner-guidance?

 A New Year resolution usually involves giving up something to improve your life. For 2015 choose to be different and add Inner-guidance. Start with a dream journal or recording device beside your bed. Then begin a dialogue with your inner self as you learn your dream language. 

 Out with the old Chinese 2014 Horse and in with the new 2015 symbol; Green Wooden Sheep. The first day of Green Wooden Sheep is February 4, 2015. Chinese New Year Day is on February 19, China Standard Time. The Year 2015 is the 4712th Chinese Year.

Are you a Rat, Pig or Cow? Do you know your Chinese Zodiac Sign? Your birthrate is below it.

              Chinese Astrology uses one's birthday and birth time to predict their fortune. 

             The astrological birth chart is built by the Chinese Astrology Calendar, which is a 

combination counting system of Yin-Yang Five Elements and 12 animals. The Five Elements are 

Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth. The twelve animal are Rat, Cow, Tiger, Dragon, Snake, Horse, 

Sheep, Monkey, Chicken, Dog and Pig.

            The 2015 Feng Shui yearly predictions for the sheep foretell that this is your year.

 So make the most of it. Do not let your stupid actions or ego come in the way of success. The sheep

 can be timid, as the name implies, but rest assured, anything you get involved in, you are passionate

 about. The year 2015 opens new, creative avenues for you. Your career takes an unexpected but 

welcomed turn. Be thrifty, as your bank account will see highs and lows in the coming year.

2015 will be an Inner-guidance turning point for many people, especially those born in the sheep year of 8.  If you were lucky in the past two years, then you will maintain your achievements. If you were unlucky the last two years, 2015 brings the opportunity to create your future. This is because Sheep contains the Female Earth, which grows plants, and helps to create something from nothing.  2015 is all about teamwork. Sheep were born 1931-02-17—1932-02-05.(see chart above)

Numerology:  2015 is an 8-Year. 8 will manifest the physical world. 8 is the infinity sign standing at attention, which makes for limitless possibilities concerning answers to dreams, prayers and meditations. The number 8 in the Bible represents a new beginning, meaning a new order or creation, and man's true 'born again' event when he is resurrected from the dead into eternal life. 2015 will be a year of new beginnings with order replacing chaos. Out of the chaos of 2014 comes order. 

In the Chinese culture the lucky number 8 has strong intuition and insight, so 2015 will have the potential to explore things undiscovered. Because Eight has the similar pronunciation with wealth or fortune, 8 is very welcome among Chinese people. The popularity of 8 was observed in relation to the Beijing Olympic Games which began exactly at eight o’clock, eight minutes on the eighth day of the eighth month in 2008. When people in China choose telephone numbers, mobile numbers, house numbers, car identification numbers and important dates, 8 is usually the first choice.

 8's in love! What kind of a love-life pattern will an 8 year possess and how may it affect us? An 8 year sees far more life-long love pledges. Lovers are very considerate and enthusiastic. They are even willing to sacrifice their own interests to keep the relationship everlasting. Generally speaking, the love they are seeking for is the combination of friendship, business partnership and also lifelong romance. 

            What does the 2015 Inner Guidance Horoscope hold for you and your loved ones?
During challenging times that may question your resolve, your Power Word may hold the key to answers. Stand in your power in 2015.

              What dreams of health, wealth and love do you share? Are you madly in love with someone or is there someone you can't stand, but don't know why? Were you sexually attracted to someone only to find that the sparks didn't fly in the bedroom? Their Astrological signs may hold the answer. These astrological predictions for 2015 include sexual signs.

Scorpio is more imaginative and Capricorn more methodical but together they work like a well oiled machine in bed. NOT- Capricorn and Sagittarius- no way. Methodical  Capricorn likes to have sex in a comfortable safe place and Sag will "do-it"  on  golf course under the sprinklers. Not happening.

Negative: Pride; Positive: Perseverance
Lucky Number: 6; Season: Winter; Element: Air

4 Techniques to Avoid Winter Make-up Sins.

Holidays and parties go together like New and Year. You have been working on your weight and health to get into that beautiful dress for a special celebration. Great!

But is your skin a sin to behold?

Although Halloween is over, would your winter make-up still frighten small children? 

As one of the C3TV hosts for Wicked Housewives On Cape Cod, making sure my make-up is not a sin is very important because the HD cameras magnify every cosmetic mistake or flaky flaw tenfold.

Your skin is a breathing organ. It the largest organ you possess and one with which you cannot live.

Therefore, you must care for your skin  and keep it as healthy and beautiful just as you would your hair, teeth and physique.  It is one of the few organs not moisturized from the inside out. Cold weather from outdoors and heated air indoors from homes and workplaces take a toll on skin, especially your face which faces the daily elements.

First impressions are lasting ones. Make them beautiful. 

Moisturize twice daily, morning and night, to reduce beauty sins and create glowing results. End your nightly routine and begin your daily one with clean skin that radiates health  from under your makeup.

Here are four “skin sins” to avoid and steps to help you make a warm and lasting impression on anyone you meet during the cold winter months.

1.) Dry Skin Sin- apply moisturizer and then primer under make-up foundation. It avoids the “wrinkled map look” that can leave people staring at your face looking for the X that marks the spot.  That spot needs extra moisturizer. 

If a dog is man's best friend, primer can be a girl's best friend. 

          Primer can:
                     a.) hold your makeup in place so it does not “travel” to wrinkles that will begin to look
                          like the Grand Canyons

                     b.) trap  moisture on your face and keep it from evaporating from beneath your make-up
                          foundation for that all-day healthy glow.
                     c.) be tinted and worn alone without make-up for the same glowing results 

2.) Dry Lip Sin- apply rich lip moisturizer at night right BEFORE bed, so it has 8 hours to work. This will help you avoid the “prune lips” look with lipstick. Dry cracked lips look worse with lipstick.   Keep your lip balm beside your bed. Reapply it in the morning and remove any extra before applying lipstick.

3.) Chapped Hands Sin- apply a rich moisturizer at night BEFORE bed so it works while you sleep. Your hands and face are the first places people look when they meet you. Reapply in the morning AFTER your shower and makeup. This will keep it on your hands longer. Apply a small amount of cream to hands throughout the day  after you wash them.  Keep your hand moisturizer beside your bed with your lip balm. If your hands are very chapped, wear a pair of light weight household cleaning gloves while you sleep over the moisturizer. I will keep the moisturizer on your hands and off your sheets.

4.) Powder on Dry Skin Sin- Powder makeup on dry skin makes lines look like dry river beds. It draws attention to flaky areas and is drying. Powder on dry skin accentuates sin number one and two. Rather than using bronzing powder, use a bronzing cake-makeup or liquid.

 Remember, the name of the game during the cold and drying winter months is Moisturize.

 Take care of your skin and it will take care of you.
