In a real Chinese astrology horoscope analysis -
- there is always a comparison of the yearly energies in relation to your own unique horoscope. For instance, Chinese Astrologers compare your hour, day, month and year... to the Chinese New Year in question (this year it is the 2009 Earth Ox Year) and this gives a very accurate idea of your fortunes according to that year. Therefore, please accept the following guidelines as being for general energies only.
This will certainly be a busy year ahead for Rat born people. There could be lots of travel, lots of changes and lots of activity going on in anything you put your hand to this year. In reality this is a year where you should be prepared for anything to happen... Projects may take off, you could receive a lot of recognition for the work you’ve been doing, or you may have to work hard to keep certain elements afloat—if there are things that have been neglected in planning stages. One thing is sure, there will be a lot of action going on and you could be in the centre of it so don't tie yourself down or commit to too many things in case you can’t fulfil them.
This year has the potential to bring an unexpected romance. You could meet this person whilst travelling or they could become involved in something your doing. If your single you need to be careful of not letting yourself get too distracted or caught up in the romance. It will be very tempting but you can’t afford to throw caution to the wind... Do yourself a big favour and research the potential in the relationship. There could be things you really need to know about because things may not be as they seem and if you neglect looking into things or allowing them to happen naturally there could be cause for regret later.
If your already in a committed relationship you might need to take stock of yourself and completely re-evaluate aspects of your own personality to see where you really intend to go. Don't be naive about the heat of the moment. Whatever decisions you make now will have a lasting impact and it will affect your whole family.
At times throughout this year you may need to make rest and relaxation your focus. Otherwise if you get too run down lots of mistakes will start to happen. Ox born people brings lots of luck to rat born people this year.
This year you need to listen to your gut instincts when it comes to decision making. On the one hand there is a greater chance for you to be recognised in the long term scheme of things and on the hand you could be so busy—you need to make sure you pay attention to detail, delegation and doing everything to keep yourself informed in the loop—which may not be an easy thing to achieve in this coming year. In particular you may called upon to give a lot of support to people who really help your help and co-operation to pulls things in...
On the other hand, if you don't set boundaries and easy guide lines around how people could
engage your help you could end up creating more chaos than you care to think about and believe me, this year could so fast moving... The chaos may not get sorted out at all... and you may just have to live with it or find a way to retrieve the best things you can along the way....!
Take extra care with money and financial transactions. You also need to watch out for loops holes you haven't quite picked up on... To miss these important details now could have a serious impact in the future. At times you could find this year quite nerving. It may feel as though you are the only sane one on the planet. It will be a delicate balance but you may have to stand your ground if you absolutely know that others have not taken in all the facts... Verses digging your heels in because you simply cannot take anymore craziness and you just want to create more of what feels comfortable for you, rather than implementing the best outcome for the project at hand.
Take care in all matters relating to health this year. Your digestion, sleep states, emotional wellbeing could be affected by
and planet alignments at different times throughout the year. In particular you should not occupy the NE sector. If possible within your environment.
Even though it is the year of the tiger and you are a tiger... it could still be a year where you need to take care in certain elements of your life. The year itself has got some delicate balances in the areas of relationships, money making, career development so the best method you could adopt would be to research a little more deeply.
Whilst it’s your year (and we know the tiger is fearless...) be careful about pushing the limits too much or being too daring. Even though you can attract different helpers throughout the year... You don't want to give them a super sized rescue job after all. In particular you need to take care of your health and avoid hanging out in the NE sector! (some Feng Shui will be good here)
Having said that there is a lot of energy and harmony going on for you this year. You will do particularly well if you can hook up with people who are born in the year of the dog, horse or pig. In fact, if you team with these animal signs you will probably find the combined energy between you is unstoppable and you really can create something very special together.
The horse in particular can bring you more fortune this year and if you can let them play a special role in whatever your doing and it can bring you prolonged recognition and more fortune for years to come. What you do need to watch out for this year is frittering away money and your fortune. If there is a project opportunity that shows special potential and your serious about going for it you need to curtail any “wasteful” attitudes including the one where you live for today and forget about tomorrow. If you could adopt an attitude where you live for all the days... including tomorrows day (sometimes called the day after) you might find yourself accumulating a whole lot more than just a bank account. More than any other year, you need to steer yourself away from wasting money and time. And if you make special effort to do that this year... you stand a good chance of changing a lot of things in your life for the better.
This is a year where you could lose things. It might be your favourite jumper, your preferred pair of sunglasses, your car keys for a few hours... that new romantic possibilities phone number... Whatever it is, you need to pay special attention this year that things don't go missing or left aside or dropped out of your hand accidentally... It’s also a good year for writing down who you lend things to... because you wont remember later.
A busy year ahead, with lots of social gatherings or working with people of like mind and status. It can be a year where you oscillate between being really out there and hiding a way where no-one can see you (or so you think) where you think its safe... And reclusive, etc. The truth is you can be a part of special things going on this year and even though you might have to wear a few hats... You will probably enjoy it a great deal so enjoy the ride is the motto this year.
This could be a good year for romance—especially if you occupy the north sector of your building. In fact the Feng Shui influences here are so good you should think about “setting up your romance Ch'i” a little bit more strategically and if your single... you probably wont be for very long!
You need to be careful as far as money speculation goes this year. Be watchful on how you spend your money and losing money as a result of bad choices. Even though this year has got a lot of “high energy’ you can hook into, don't get so caught up in the moment that you forget to be practical. Old friends could call on your help this year, so be open to spending some time with them. Any advice you give then could win you a few blessings in years to come.
Be watchful when driving this year. This is a year that attracts a lot of accidents on the road and so you don't want to be a part of that in any way.
You have a busy year ahead this year and you might be called upon to help out in more than one situation. Having said that, even though people call you in requesting your help and expertise... It doesn't mean they will understand your advice or expertise. You may need to break it down into bite sized chunks for people again and again in order for them to accept it easily.
If you can keep your cool and stay patient in this regard the impression you leave on others will give you a distinct advantage in the future. You will be surprised who appreciates your efforts and they will not forget in the future. But you could still have lots of obstacles in implementing your ideas and you need to guard against people who say they will help but they end up robbing you instead (and this will leave you with a lot of egg on your face).
This could be a year where you might have to travel about a lot in order to fulfil certain responsibilities. Just this alone could attract a new romance and if you are single it could be an exciting part of your year. Just don't get too carried away in the moment—you do need this romance to prove certain longevity factors before you can call it a real romance. There is the risk that it comes quickly and goes just as quickly so just take it easy until you know.
If you are already in a committed relationship then relationships could be strained if you have to travel extensively. Just remember a bunch of flowers, a phone call, a small note... These all go a long way to preserving love and these gestures will come back in aces if you are really in love.
You do need to take care of your health this year because it would be easy for you to become run down with all the amount of stuff you need to fit into this year... In particular take care of the things you eat (diet) and your liver... (against alcohol). There are just some years where it is better to drink and eat simply. Stay focused and be on the look out for charlatans and conmen!
This is a year where you need to keep your wits about if you can. There are just certain aspects in relation to this year that can see you attracting the wrong energy or people who take you wrongly.
If you stay alert you may be able to avoid some of this misunderstanding but if you get caught in trying to defend the blame game or re-direct the blame game then you could find yourself attracting more blame—even if others are noticeably in the wrong (and you aren't). If this happens you could become the centre of attention in many other problems and the situation may escalate.
This year, do not do things without back up. It’s not a good year to choose new business partners, take on complicated ventures or rise to causes that could potentially see you tied up in knots for years to come.!!!
In particular you need to watch out for new business ventures and taking on new partners.
In any year of the tiger there can be “penalties” that can have a profound effect on your future—so be very careful about the decisions you make. Keep in mind, the decisions you make in ANY tiger year can also affect your family—so make every effort to do true due diligence on any situation, response or outcome. Because this is a year where you can find yourself out of sorts... This is not a good year of taking risks or challenges. Avoid relationships with people born in the year of the tiger and the monkey. Partnerships with all three signs together can attract trouble!
Taking that extra time out or a little time away on the weekends will be both nourishing and replenishing for you.
This is a year for you to lead in your field and shine in your light... You can easily become more well known for what you do this year and people around you can really take to it and take to you just as enthusiastically.
The energy of this year can give your more confidence, more strength and more focus to achieve your aspirations.
In realty there is a very important role you can play in leading others... And there is almost a definitive journey to take to reach success but the biggest key is that you are not really going there for yourself alone—if you try to do this—your success wont last as long as it will if you take others with you and lead them to shine just as much as you. There can be help on hand, increased opportunities and a flow of energy that can help you reach the heights you want.
This year you do need to guard against accidents and injuries that can occur if you push things to the limits or act recklessly. Its a good year to avoid contact sports and dangerous activities if you can. There are certain energies around you that can make accidents happen.
Even though you will be flowing in harmony this year, there can be others around who are jealous and even argumentative. If you buy into this energy from a human perspective it will increase whereas if you apply wisdom and insight into the mix you may cool down the situation and even potentially change the situation to become friendly.
Good people to partner with this year are those born in the horse, tiger, dog. The horse born person can get special luck from goat born people this year.
This year you could be called upon to give special assistance on difficult projects. There is no doubt that you are the best person for the job and a lot of blessings could come your way as a result of participating and leading where possible.
If you play your cards right with this assistance it could make a very big difference to your career and meeting new people, making new connections that could help you significantly in the future. This year there could be new places to visit, new skills to learn, new strategies to formulate for work prospects. Therefore it could be a year of go, go, go and you will need to makes sure you keep a balance of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.
This year you need to be careful of losing things... It could be as simple as your favourite jumper, a diamond ring, an important phone number... Guard yourself against absent mindedness and double check important details such as flight times, departure times, etc.
There is a lot of potential for romance—especially if you inhabit the North sector of your building. You also need to be watchful in relation to you health and there are certain Yearly Stars
influences that could undermine your energies or efforts this year. Feng Shui is important to you this year. Try a little bit in your home if you have not done so before.
Good people to partner with this year are those born in the year of the horse and tiger (strangely) but avoid forming partnerships with people born in the year of the dog—unless you know them very well and you have a time tested relationship.
Don't be afraid to stand your ground on important issues this year. Others will appreciate it if you do.
This year your zodiac sign is in direct clash with the zodiac sign of the year (the tiger) and this means that certain parts of the year will attract its own set of challenges. There could be unexpected upsets, delays, disturbances that could alter your plans, hopes, goals and dreams this year.
You may find yourself chasing your tail. You may end up travelling more, you could move house, country, change jobs, expand your network, change relationships, you may change things about your business if you are self-employed. Probably the most important thing to pay attention to in a year like this is keeping yourself happy and living in a way that’s simple and try to create harmony around you.
This is a year where you can attract injuries and accidents there fore we recommend against being involved in extreme or dangerous sports in this year as your chances for having accidents are higher than usual. You especially need to take care when travelling this year. From a Feng Shui point of view the clashing elements of this year can be stronger if you occupy the SW location of you building because you will encounter
that can affect your fortune. It is especially recommended that Monkey born people do not travel directly to the NE direction (even more so if they are travelling from the SW location).
Where possible avoid negative relationships with people born in the year of the tiger and snake this year. Guard against impulsive buying and get plenty of rest and exercise.
There is a certain energy about this year that can stimulate a lot of good fortune and money luck around you. You might find yourself forming new business relationships with people of like mind or attracting new people who co-operate with you to form a mutually beneficial outcome. Magically there could be many opportunities that mystically fall in your lap but do not become big headed or complacent. These opportunities can disappear just as quickly as they arrive if they don't receive the right nurturing from you.
So one important aspect of this year could be to try and strategically develop these opportunities in a way where you solidify plans around making them happen. With the money luck that follows you this year, you can easily plan and research in a way where you can step into reaping the rewards very quickly.
Overall this can be a very smooth year for you and if you develop realistic goals and step into the role of making things happen there will be good returns and remunerations. Avoid getting into any battles where you take on competitors if possible. Battles such as this could waste your time and money and divert you from making great achievements.
Keep a close watch out for people who are deceitful or fraudulent. Whenever success is close people who are involved in shams and trickery are usually just as close. Double check all your details and keep a close watch on your reputation.
Another thing that can be highlighted this year is romance. On the one hand there could be a relationship that grows out of either time together or some speciality. If you are already in a committed relationship you’ll need to tread very carefully. Any decision you make could have a drastic outcome—especially next year. So think carefully about this.
People born in the year of the snake, ox or goat can be helpful to you this year.
This is a year where you can be recognised for the efforts you make and the things you have achieved and built from past years. There is a certain flow to the year which has a lot of momentum coming from other people but you will need to put aside any gripes and grudges if you hope to get the reward and recognition from these opportunities.
In particular there can be short bursts of good fortune that could happen “suddenly” and you will need to act quickly to capitalise on these windfalls. So its important to keep generating the right attitude or you could miss out and other people may take what was meant for you.
This is a good year to work on being supportive to all and getting support back. One of the highest valour's that we can receive is when we give help at a time of need. Forming relationships under these circumstances can be long lasting and fruitful but you need to keep your energy motivated and on a high note. If you play your cards right, the things you can do this year will see you recognised as an expert in the future.
You can have trouble with romance this year and you need to guard against revealing your all in romance when the other person has not proven their sincerity.
Horse and tiger born people can bring you luck. Pig born people could lead you up the garden path..
This year is a good year for you to take up new study or interests and generally go with the flow and follow you fortune. There are certain elements about the year that can be very harmonious with your horoscope and these could put a big smile on your face—even from the beginning of the year.
Take special care with travel this year as there is a general propensity for accidents and injuries this year and the happy go lucky pig can get hurt if he/she is not watchful. Whilst your not really the extreme sport kinda guy/gal... you don't mind the occasional bungy jump or daring skydive but take care—remember you only live once!
You can gain very quick windfalls and unexpected fortune this year. This could especially be in the form of fast money and other forms of recognition. But you’ll need to make sure you don't spend the fortune or get cheated out of it by clever conmen who could be lurking.
There is a the chance for lots of social gatherings and parties this year or at least spontaneous events that promise a lot of fun and laughter. You have got a lot of harmony in favour this year so you can get away with a little more than usual.
Romance will be in the air this year but it could also upset certain aspects of your life as well (not that this ever really worries you). If single you could meet someone very stunning “suddenly” and the entire romance might have the kind of focus where you need to act quickly to get it... It wont hurt to be a little clever in this department. You can test it out a little to see if it is a genuine thing (instead of falling for the infatuation)... If there are certain incompatibilities between you the romance may disappear just as fast as it arrives.... Fun filled year. Next year is also good. Be careful with your money. It doesn't grow and trees and you might need it the following year! (2012).
