kong hei fat choi!

chinese new year begins on valentine's day this year, but we'd like to give you a headstart on what is in store for you during this year of the golden tiger.

TIGER
1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010

Zodiac’s Nature:
Unpredictable, rebellious, colorful, powerful, passionate, daring, impulsive, vigorous, stimulating, sincere, affectionate, humanitarian, generous. Can be restless, reckless, impatient, quick-tempered, obstinate, selfish, aggressive.

2010 is the year of the Golden Tiger so people born in the year of the Tiger are said to be offending the Grand Duke (Tai Suey Wu Hang) of the year and this will usher in inauspicious and difficult periods from time to time throughout the year. It is important that they should try to avoid going to funerals or attending wakes. If it cannot be avoided then they should not go home or go back to the office directly from the funeral or wake. Instead, they should stop by a restaurant or a crowded area along the way like a supermarket or a shopping mall. This is symbolic of shedding off the bad luck or negative energy in another place and not bringing it back to home or to the office. Then they must bathe with water that has been boiled with pomelo leaves to minimize their bad luck.

Tigers are offending the Tai Suey this year; scientifically they are affected by the unseen negative force from Jupiter on the Earth at 60 degrees Northeast. So, there are many unlucky stars that are gathered under their sign and present in their life cycle in year 2010, there is also a lack of lucky stars. They will face many problems and persecutions both in their work and private life. Thus, they should handle their work cautiously to avoid great failures.

In general, 2010 is not a good year for Tiger people, due to the influence of the planet Jupiter, thus Tigers should be flexible to cope with the sudden changes during the year. They have to mind their own business to avoid getting involved in disputes. They should steer clear from rumors and gossip. Beware of road safety to avoid accident. They will have some movement this year which translates as a chance to move house, change career or travel etc. However, it is important to keep in mind that they have to be more patient, keep a low profile and avoid conflict with people. Tigers should try to be humble enough to accept advice from older people because they must understand that experience cannot be purchased. A Chinese proverb says: “With one careless move, the whole game is over” and “There is always a person above the other”.

Although Tigers offend the Tai Suey this year, they will have a Powerful Star under their sign so that they can delegate and they will have more authority in their work. Conversely, they will face more challenges and annoyances that will cause them to have more stress and pressure. To conquer all the coming challenges, they should relax more and lift up their fighting spirit.

Financially, money luck is easy come and easy go; they can hardly save money this year. Therefore, they should be more conservative in handling their business and financial affairs especially in the lunar months of January, April and July. It is not a good year to start a new business or undergo expansion unless they are Tigers born in the lunar months of July, August, September, November and December. For these Tigers, they will have better luck this year and their chances of success are big. Thus, these Tigers should treasure the timing and be alert to grasp opportunities to exhibit their talents throughout the year. Tigers should not be greedy because as I’ve said every year “Being too greedy will cause one to be poor” and will also cause bad luck to follow soon after. You can see in the year 2009 Year of the Earth Ox, if people were not too greedy for high interest returns then they would not have lost all their money in the stock market and other investments which in turn greatly contributed to the global crisis. So, it is absolutely not lucky for Tigers to invest in the stock market. Keep away from gambling and beware of money traps especially when engaged in contract signing. It is important not to lend money or be a loan guarantor otherwise they will suffer in the months to come. Instead, Tigers have to march, step by step to be successful this year.

In love affairs, this is not a romantic year for Tigers and they should not expect too much. They will easily have misunderstandings. Apart from this, they are quite emotional, jealous and suspicious. So, they should keep a clear mind since this will help them have a stable relationship. They have to be especially cautious in the lunar months of January, April, July and August. Regarding health, due to the influence of the unlucky stars; they should keep away from sharp objects and beware especially of road safety. Pay special attention when driving in the highway and avoid talking on the phone or texting while driving. Try to avoid any dangerous sports. Be cautious in the lunar months of January, April, May, June, July, August and October. It is important to do more exercise and be patient to avoid struggling with people. The younger generation of Tigers especially should avoid having too much nightlife since this is the way to avoid unnecessary troubles. Apart from this, Tigers should avoid visiting patients and attending funerals or wakes. For their protection, they have to carry a “Safety Medallion”, and a “White Jade Gourd” to avoid accidents. Try to have a blood test or donate blood in the beginning of this year after February 4, 2010. Do more charity. If possible, eat more vegetables than meat. Keeping happy always will help Tigers have better luck.

RABBIT
1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999

Zodiac’s Nature:
Gracious, good friend, kind, sensitive, soft-spoken, amiable, elegant, reserved, cautious, artistic, thorough, tender, self-assured, astute, compassionate, flexible. Can be moody, detached, superficial, self-indulgent, opportunistic, stubborn.

Generally speaking, the luck of the Rabbit is not so optimistic in the year of the Golden Tiger, especially because there are many unlucky stars present under their sign that will bring about interpersonal and legal conflicts. They need to be brave and have the fortitude to face all their challenges. They have to struggle very hard for their survival in business throughout the year. Thus, to enhance their luck, they have to get the help of the lucky stars from their compatible signs which are the Goat, the Pig and the Dog. They have to handle their work and business cautiously to avoid falling into money traps. They should not rely on others too much and they have to be very careful and manage on their own. Rabbits should try to be quiet and patient as they handle their work and keep a low profile to avoid having personal disputes. To improve their luck during the year, they should consider putting proper Feng Shui lucky charms both in the house and the office.

Financially, they should not look for get-rich-quick schemes as this will only cause failure. “You sow what you reap”, or as per the Chinese proverb: “In planning a rice field, help the young shoots grow by pulling them upward”. What should they do? They have to take the bull by the horns and work and be conservative in handling their business. They must take care of everything on their own to increase their chances of success. Money luck is not very good for Rabbits this year, so they have to budget their expenses well and be cautious with their investments to avoid losses, especially in the lunar months of April, May, June, July, August and October. They should not be greedy and they have to consider every step especially when signing contracts to avoid lawsuits.

In love affairs, this is a luster year for Rabbits. They won’t have many problems in love and romance. If they are looking for true love or a happy marriage; their dreams will come true. Single Rabbits are very happy with their current situation but as the Chinese proverb says: “Flowers never bloom all the time and the Moon is not always full”. So Rabbits have to pay attention to their love affairs in the lunar months of July, August and October to avoid problems from arising. If they have been dating for a certain period of time, they should be patient with each other to avoid ending up in a rift and separating. For married couples, their relationship is content and quite stable. To enhance their love and romance this year, they have to put a “Brass Antique Pumpkin” in their bedroom.

Regarding health, the Sickness Star is compounded by the negativity from the other unlucky stars under their sign so their health is weaker compared to the previous year. Therefore, they should pay special attention to their diet and hygiene for the whole year and they should carry a “Health Medallion”. It is better for them to have a medical checkup in the beginning of the year. It is also important to carry a “Safety Medallion” and have a “White Jade Gourd” for driving to avoid injuries on their limbs or unnecessary surgery. Apart from this, they should beware of robbery, so they should avoid exposing their wallets in public areas. Although they are not in conflict with the Tai Suey, it is recommended that they attend the Tai Suey Blessing on March 7, 2010.

DRAGON
1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000

Zodiac’s Nature:
Magnanimous, stately, vigorous, strong, self-assured, proud, noble, direct, dignified, zealous, eccentric, intellectual, fiery, passionate, decisive, pioneering, ambitious, artistic, generous, loyal. Can be tactless, arrogant, imperious, tyrannical, demanding, intolerant, dogmatic, violent, impetuous, brash.

The year of the Golden Tiger is a busy year for all the Dragons. In the olden days of China, a Chinese proverb says: “The perpetual struggle between the Dragon and the Tiger”. This means that in the year of the Tiger, Dragons are surrounded by more unlucky stars than benevolent stars. So, Dragons should keep this in mind and prepare themselves to undergo many tough challenges and obstacles during the year. Anyhow, they should take these challenges as training for them in being more patient and persistent. They need to work harder than other people and the busier they are, they more luck they will have. They have to keep away from personal disputes. Aside from this, due to the presence of the Poster Star under their sign, they will have some movement within the year like move house, change job, traveling often or will always be on the move. Therefore, they should try to develop and explore the overseas markets so that they will have a breakthrough in their career and business. It is important to preserve a very strong determination and desire that will motivate them to aim for their targets. They should never give up even though they are depressed and frustrated with their sluggish business and progress. Instead, they should handle their work and business patiently and calmly and make sure that they have a clear mind when managing things to avoid getting cheated by their competitors.

Financially, Dragon employees will have better luck in money affairs. The more they work, the more they gain. They will get reasonable profits in return for their hard work. Businessmen should be more conservative in handling their money affairs; otherwise they will face an economic crisis at year end. It is important that they do things in a down-to-earth manner and face up to the facts. They should be not be greedy or try their luck in investments and gambling this year, if not they will drive themselves to financial ruin. They should be especially cautious in the lunar months of February, March, June, August and September. On the other hand, they should try to cut down on their extravagant habits and try to save as much money as they can. It is important to avoid acting as a loan guarantor with the bank or any financial company or else they might face endless troubles.

In love affairs, single Dragons will have a quiet and interesting year. Married couples may face some difficulties. It is important that they do not cheat on their lover and they must avoid the temptation of an extra marital affair. They should be cautious in the lunar months of January, March, July, September and December. They should be able to reach a mutual understanding so that their situation will improve. To help their romance, place a “Brass Happy Couple” inside the bedroom.

Regarding health, due to the presence of the unlucky star, Dragons will be quite weak both physically and mentally this year. Lady Dragons especially may easily have gynecology related problems, so they should take the precaution for that which is unexpected. It is advisable for them to have a medical check-up in the beginning of the year. Aside from this, they have to keep their body in good shape, for example do more exercise or relax more. They have to be cautious in the lunar months of January to May and November. If possible, they should try to take a break so that they can get rid of their stress. Apart from this, they should not go to funerals or attend wakes.

SNAKE
1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001.

Zodiac’s Nature:
Deep thinker, wise, mystic, graceful, soft-spoken, sensual, creative, prudent, shrewd, ambitious, elegant, cautious, responsible, calm, strong, constant, purposeful. Can be a loner, bad communicator, possessive, hedonistic, self-doubting, distrustful, mendacious, suffocating, cold.

Snakes are slightly in conflict with the Tiger this year, so they have to be careful in handling their relationships with people. They should try to avoid provoking disputes and rumors. They should be careful when they speak; as a Chinese proverb says: “Disease comes in through the mouth, and trouble goes out from the mouth”. It is important for Snakes to keep this Chinese motto in mind; they should think thoroughly first before they speak out and they should mind what they say. This is the only way for them to stay out of trouble which may ruin their future. Apart from this, they have to be patient and calm in handling their work so that they can smoothly achieve things. Aside from this, they have to pay special attention to their communication skills because “with one wrong step, the whole game will be over”. A Chinese motto says: “One happy event can block three calamities, but if none, the rumors will come”. So, under the circumstances, to enhance their luck, Snakes have to attend or create more happy events and social gatherings, such as engagement party, wedding party, birthday party, anniversary party etc. Fortunately, there are three beneficial stars under their sign that can help Snakes change their bad luck into good fortune. However, they should control their temper and should try not to be emotional during the year otherwise they will make matters more complicated.

Financially, this will be a stable and promising year, aside from the antagonistic stars there are three lucky stars under their sign this year, so Snakes will have many opportunities waiting for them and at the same time, they will receive assistance from their benefactors to achieve their targets. Therefore they should grasp this chance to exhibit their talents and not let this opportunity slip through their fingers. They should understand that time goes by rapidly and never returns. Even though they may encounter some difficulties from time to time throughout the year, they will be able to overcome them. It is important not to be a guarantor for people to avoid troubles in the future. They must be cautious in the lunar months of February and October.

In love affairs, because the lucky star shines bright on them, this will be a pretty good year for lovers. Single Snakes will have the chance to meet potential partners in social gatherings and if they are not double minded, they have a very good chance to get married this year. Married couples will enjoy their family life and will be beaming with joy. It is important that they keep away from temptation. They have to be cautious in the lunar months of January, February, April, May, June and October.

Their health is stable and they are quite healthy this year but they should not be too emotional since this may affect their work ability and performance. Overall, they won’t have any major problems this year, but they must be careful of old medical conditions that may return. They should watch their diet and avoid overeating. They should not indulge in too much nightlife to avoid struggles with people or easily provoking a lawsuit. Aside from this, they should develop the habit of doing daily exercise to keep their body in good shape. On the other hand, they have to pay special attention to the health of their eldest family members.

HORSE
1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002

Zodiac’s Nature:
Cheerful, popular, quick-witted, changeable, earthy, perceptive, talkative, agile both mentally and physically, magnetic, intelligent, astute, flexible, open-minded. Can be fickle, arrogant, childish, anxious, rude, gullible, stubborn.

This is a stable year for Horses in business even though there are so many antagonistic stars under the sign and no lucky stars within the sign. However, they have to make use of the lucky stars from their compatible sign, so that they will have better luck and they can change their bad luck into good fortune. They will have to struggle very hard for their career survival, so it is important that they should have a good strategy for their business development so that they can reach their targets, and at the same time lower their expectations and not be too engrossed in being successful. Apart from this, they have to put in some extra effort to handle their work, and they should be ready to face stress and the hectic schedule of their work. Since they are compatible with the Tiger, the Tiger will bring them luck in power, but it is important that they be humble and try not to be filled with arrogance or haughtiness, otherwise their good fortune will change into bad things. Overall, working employees will be appreciated by their superiors and have a good chance of a promotion because of their good performance. But because the Backstabbing Star is under their sign, they have to be alert for envious people and hidden enemies from time to time throughout the year; even of their close relatives or friends, otherwise they will be betrayed. As the Chinese proverb says: “Knowing a person’s face, doesn’t mean you know their heart”. This proverb will benefit them not only this year but for years to come. For their protection, it is best to carry a “Safety Medallion” with them to protect against traitors.

Financially, due to the influence of the Antagonistic Star, their money luck fluctuates and they can easily lose money. It is necessary for them to cut costs and keep a tight budget to avoid over spending. During this period of time, they should not look for fast success and they must have detailed plans and good strategies to handle their work and business so that they can survive and not be left behind by their competitors, thus giving them abundant profits by year end. Apart from this, they have to keep their eyes open wide to watch out for money traps and be highly alert of swindlers. It is also important that they should have the guts to say no to those people who are lending money, and they should be especially cautious in the lunar months of April, June, October and November. It is imperative that they should develop and keep the habit of saving money for a rainy day.

In love affairs, this is a good year for Single Horses to get married if they have been dating their lover for a certain period of time. If they are still single, they will have many chances to be acquainted with the opposite gender, but they should have the guts to pursue these opportunities. As the Chinese proverb says: “Making friends with a whole heart and soul” and “Watering trees at their roots”, meaning one should build and nurture relationships properly otherwise they will end up with nothing. They have to be cautious in handling their love affairs in the lunar months of March, April, May and August to December.

Regarding health, due to the appearance of the unlucky stars within the sign, Horses have to pay attention to their heart and blood pressure and they may get injured accidentally. Therefore, they have to pay special care to their personal safety, including at work, and try to avoid dangerous outdoor activities. Apart from this, they are terribly suspicious all day and may have all sorts of hallucinations that will influence their mood. This is because they are full of negative energy so they should stay away from sick people and absolutely avoid going to funeral or wakes, especially in the lunar months of January, March, April, May, September, October and November.

GOAT
1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991

Righteous, sincere, sympathetic, mild-mannered, shy, artistic, creative, gentle, compassionate, understanding, mothering, determined, peaceful, generous, seeks security. Can be moody, indecisive, over-passive, worrier, pessimistic, over-sensitive, complainer, weak-willed.

This is a productive and successful year for the Goat, this year of the Golden Tiger. This is because of the appearance of the Benefactor Star Tin Yuet and two other powerful stars within their sign. This is also a career lucky year for Goats; if they really try to work hard on their careers, they will be appreciated by their superiors and they will have the chance to get a promotion. Businessmen will get the full support of their clients and they will be able to bring about splendid achievements. It is important that they are not blinded by their success; otherwise they might face a sudden collapse in their business. A Chinese proverb says: “An army puffed up with pride is bound to lose”. They must keep a low profile to avoid jealous people around them, because in this world when there are people then rumors and jealousy will be created. So, in other words, they have to be humble enough in handling their personal affairs. A needle is never sharp on both ends so of course on the other side of things there are also many antagonistic stars under their sign, so they have to be careful for potential dangers and traps in business.

Financially, Goats will have a satisfactory income from different sources this year. The more they work, the more they gain, but they should be careful in handling their relationship with their partners, especially related to money affairs. Everything should be clear, open and fair. It is important that they should not be greedy. However, they have to be more conservative in their investments to avoid money traps. Apart from this, they have to be alert for wicked people and they have to monitor the economic growth of their business closely since this is the only way to avoid a dramatic drop in business. They have to be cautious in the lunar months of April, June, August and December.

In love affairs, this is a romantic year for Goats because of the presence of the Happiness Star. No matter if they are a bachelor/bachelorette or a loner, they will have many opportunities to meet their dream lover, and therefore, they should open their eyes wide to observe the people around them. A Chinese proverb says: “If they have a bond, the pair will meet though a thousand meters apart”. Married Goats will have many happy events in their family circle this year. On the other hand, they have to be cautious in the lunar months of March, April, June and December and avoid being moody and avoid temptation.

Regarding health, Goats will be quite healthy this year. However, their digestive system is weak, so they should control their diet and avoid overeating. It is important that they avoid too much nightlife and make sure they have enough rest to avoid exhaustion especially in the lunar months of February, March, June, August, September and December.

Thus, they should be very careful in handling their work or business to avoid losing money in investments. Apart from this, this is a changing year for Monkeys, more or less they will face many challenges and pressure at work therefore they should consolidate at every step and handle their work cautiously and in a positive manner. They should try to create some opportunities during the year. It is important that they keep a clear mind and try to be humble enough to accept advice from others. However, this is a busy year for Monkeys because of the influence of the Poster Star under their sign; they have the possibility to change job, move house or travel etc. within the year. So, for their survival, they have to try their best to be more flexible to cope with the sudden changes this year will bring. Fortunately, the arrival of two lucky stars will help them and Monkeys will be able to turn bad luck into good fortune to overcome their challenges. Apart from this, they should put some Feng Shui cures to balance the negative energy in their office and home to help improve their luck.

Financially, it is bitter first and sweet later. Money luck is fluctuating up and down so they should be patient and calm. Try to retreat first in order to advance when handling work and business. It is important to keep a close eye on their budget and spending; otherwise they will face financial ruin. They have to be vigilant especially when engaged in contract signing; they must carefully read every single word to avoid falling into a money trap. Apart from this, they should not be a loan guarantor for friends or relatives. They have to be cautious with their investments and should not be blinded by gain otherwise they will end up suffering a crushing defeat. Monkeys must especially be cautious in the lunar months of January and from May to October.

In love affairs, because of the crashing with the Tai Suey this year, the Romance Star is dim on their sign so they should not expect too much in terms of romance this year. Single Monkeys should treasure their relationship with their lover. It is important that they exercise patience and tolerance to avoid separation. Married Monkeys should avoid quarrelling with each other and they should try to reach a mutual understanding so that they can hook their relationship to good terms.

Acute, neat, meticulous, organized, self-assured, decisive, conservative, critical, perfectionist, alert, zealous, practical, scientific, responsible. Can be over zealous and critical, puritanical, egotistical, abrasive, opinionated, given to empty bravado.

Luck of the Rooster in the year of the Golden Tiger is quite good and everything goes smooth. This year will be much better than last year. If they are not too greedy then it is sure that this year will be a stable and pretty good year for Roosters. But due to the influence of the unlucky stars, they might face some obstacles in their operations at work, but if they are well organized and plan ahead to anticipate things then they will not have any problem at all. The presence of the Yuet Tak Kwai Yan lucky star shines bright on them so they will be able to change all their bad luck into good fortune. This is especially lucky for the Director of a big firm, Government Officer, Disciple Army, Executive Member, Councilor etc. Everything will go as expected.

Apart from this, they have to be cautious when engaged in contract signing to avoid lawsuits or falling into a money trap, especially in the lunar months of January and July.

In love affairs, this is not a fortunate year for romance because the Romance Star is dim. If they are still single, they should keep a low profile in handling their love affairs and they should understand that the more they expect, they more they will disappointed. Everything should come naturally. The Chinese believe that in our lives, we will eventually get what we will have; it just depends on the timing if it comes early or late.

This is especially applicable to the younger generation of Roosters who are full of energy and who are quite emotional this year. On the other hand, Roosters should avoid going to funerals or attending wakes the whole year.

DOG
1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006.

Zodiac’s Nature:
Honest, intelligent, straightforward, loyal, sense of justice and fair play, attractive, amicable, unpretentious, sociable, open-minded, idealistic, moralistic, practical, affectionate, sensitive, easy going. Can be cynical, lazy, cold, judgmental, pessimistic, worrier, stubborn, quarrelsome.

The Dog is compatible with the Tiger this year but there is only one lucky star and many antagonistic stars compounding their sign. So they are in for a stressful year and they will face many challenges. However, if they have enough confidence and adopt a positive attitude to face their challenges and if they spend more time for advance preparation for their plan of action then there will not be any major problems for them. To enhance their luck, they should not go to funerals or attend wakes or visit the sick in the hospital this year. Conversely, they have to attend more happy events, such as wedding party, birthday party, anniversary party or graduation party etc. Apart from this, they should be smart enough to observe people, especially their superiors and colleagues, so that they can avoid unnecessary gossip and conflict. It is important that they learn how to deal with people and be more considerate of the feelings of others. On the other hand, they should keep in mind that they should work more and talk less, so that they can survive like the evergreen that never falls down.

Financially, money luck is bitter first and sweet later and they have the possibility to lose money first and earn later. So Dogs have to be extremely careful and be more conservative in handling their investments and business. They should think thoroughly first before making any decisions and especially not act as a loan guarantor for people. On the other hand, they should not be greedy and borrow money from others. Once they owe money then their whole life will be down forever. A Chinese proverb says: “The more you claim no money, the poorer you will be”. That is the cycle of karma in life. That is the reason why Chinese merchants must clear up their payments with their clients at the end of the year before the Chinese Lunar New Year. Apart from this, they should be alert when engaged in contract signing to avoid falling into money traps. Dogs have to keep in mind that the Chinese saying: “One wrong step in the game of chess and the game is over”, this is similar to the fall of Waterloo. They have to be cautious in the lunar months of June, July, September and December.

In love affairs, the Romance Star is shining bright for Single Dogs this year. For those who have been dating for a certain period now is the right time for them to get married. Married couples will enjoy a harmonious family life during the year, but they have to be cautious in the lunar months of March, July, September and November.

Regarding health, there is no major health problem this year however, it is good for them to have a medical check-up and pay special attention to road safety.

Aside from this, beware of animal bites and the health of the eldest family members in the family especially in the lunar months of January, July, August, September and November.

PIG
1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007

Zodiac’s Nature:
Honest, gallant, sturdy, sociable, peace-loving, patient, loyal, hard-working, trusting, sincere, calm, understanding, thoughtful, scrupulous, passionate, intelligent. Can be naïve, over-reliant, self-indulgent, gullible, fatalistic, materialistic.

Pigs are compatible to the Tiger but then again they are also a little in conflict with the Tiger. So under this strange situation, their luck is half good and half bad. On the positive side, there will be many chances knocking on their door and there will be many opportunities for them to exhibit their talents. They should work more and talk less frequently and they should take advantage of their connection network so that they will have no hindrance in embarking on the path of success and they will also definitely end up reaping great rewards. Everything goes smooth but they should plan things carefully and take all precautionary measures. Apart from this, they will receive help of powerful benefactors to guide them and assist them and this will change their bad luck into good fortune. It is important that they avoid being impatient and arrogant. Try to be humble to avoid jealousy and rumors; otherwise they will fall into a helpless situation or in isolation.

Financially, money luck is stable, but it is easy come and easy goes, so they should save money for a rainy day and Pigs should be careful in handling their investments. They should be especially cautious in the lunar months of April, May and October.
