In a real Chinese astrology horoscope analysis - The Four Pillars of Destiny - 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 Water Dragon 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.
In an overall sense, the year of the Water Snake is neither good nor bad for the Rat however Rat born people might find themselves reviewing many aspects of life with a focus of finding what is really important and meaningful. The Rat is always first to know when changes are bound and they instinctively search out the spark of anything new. So the Rat will be on the lookout for new innovative things and in a sense this year should be considered to be a year of planning. Coming out into the limelight or stepping out onto a new level can happen easily this year and there could be a surprising new venture just ahead, but ideas gathered in this year can also take on a special momentum in the future and be exhilarating and fulfilling in every way. Indeed the effects of these ideas may be so big result wise that they generate prosperity for many people at the same time and last for years to come. In particular your immediate network may be very important to you this year and you may find last year’s promotions continuing in a very extraordinary way. The Rat has always gone very good connections and in this year you may have the opportunity to utilise many of your connections. Remember to delegate, delegate, delegate and you should be okay.
Money will be a focus this year and in fact there can be many windfalls or surprising ways that money can come to Rat born people this year. It will almost be as though Lady Luck is with those who are born in the year of the Rat and they can do no wrong. However Rats should be very cautious about how they spend their money and keep tabs of financial expenditures with a watchful eye. Avoid being careless or gambling on useless things and do not be reckless with money. Above all do not count your chickens before they’ve hatched!
Surprisingly this could be year of meaningful romance. Even though the snake is not normally a romance flower for the Rat, this can be a year when single Rats of both sexes might meet captivating or interesting partners. Having said that, it is wise not to act or jump into any relationship too hastily or without research and experience. Committed Rats should be careful to avoid flirtatious invitations. These will not pan out well for the Rat.
Overall a good year to keep a low profile but do very good work. Do not lose focus and keep your eye on creating positive experiences for everyone within your immediate environment.
This can be a year of great harmony for the Ox. Not only can you be recognised for your talents and skills but you can also rake in some good dollars in the process and keep your nest egg in a very healthy state. In reality you can attract a lot of rewards this year and this is because of all the hard work and effort you have made in the past.
In terms of projects you can have a great run this year. It may be as though nothing can go wrong for you. It is a year of receiving support and help from expected and unexpected sources. It is also a year of being able to exercise a gentle level of control that is very effective in the workplace. Other people will appreciate your firm but methodical ways of governing or moving things along and making them happen.
You have everything going your way and you can attract helpful people or mentors who will help you go to the next level.
If you can focus on the harmony that you experience in relationships this year it will become your means to move forward. In fact you could attract the attention of people of importance and gain a really great promotion this year. Another thing you might find yourself attracted to this year are spiritual endeavours. You might like to take up meditation or join a spiritual group will find some of the way of incorporating spiritual practices into your life. This is a good year for supportive relationships, flowing romance, enjoyment at your work and outside of your work, and in general a really good flowing happy year.
Last year you got to discover that things around you and in your working life were not as stable or as secure as you thought and several times you needed to re-evaluate what you needed to do throughout the course of the year. This year you may again be very aware of unstable energies around you and the transient nature of people, however, there are genuine opportunities you can utilise to change things around for the benefit of everyone. Otherwise, the negative energies can become imbalanced and this could affect your life or the lives of others close to you. Do not discount your ability to turn things around and make big changes in everyone’s lives – you need to have courage and this could turn out very, very good for you (for years to come).
Throughout the whole of 2013 you need to be very watchful about creating relationships that form “penalties” and in particular you can form penalties with people who are born in the year of the monkey or the snake. Even though you need to be very cautious with these two astrological signs, in reality you need to avoid coming into negative relationships with people, or developing feuds, or being really fixed about what you think you know, or hanging on to old ideas you have had. In essence, there are certain aspects to the year that can be difficult for relationships in general and they could lead to lawsuits or trouble with the law if you approach these wrongly. These may start off as small niggling things that quickly escalate to full-blown catastrophes that are very difficult to reverse.
You do need to be cautious health wise and in your working life this year… There may be new opportunities to increase your finances but you need to make sure they will be founded on real things that it truly valuable for people. This could be in a year where you have to let go of some old ideas to make things happen and create true transformation. It will be a very positive year if you set your mind and energy on creating benefit for everyone. Be sure to take time out to rest and re-evaluate if things are not working.
This is quite a good year for the rabbit and even though you don’t really have so much relationship with the snake, at another level your relationship to the snake year is not bad to you either.
This year the focus for you is centred around your talents and skills, being recognised, and possibly a promotion that could be on the horizon.
There is a very good chance this year you might become the leader in your field. And at the same time, you could be asked to help out at a number of different levels – with your family, a close loved one, with people you work with, you could even be headhunted to assist with very special projects in another firm, country, field or industry. This year holds many surprises for rabbit born people. You could move house, move city, change your job, or even go on an adventure holiday. There could be the ending of one era and the opening of a new era. Whatever it is that you end up doing this year there will be an element where you are expected to give and assist. At times you may feel very tired so you need to keep a good balance with your diet, rest and recreation. Do not be afraid to delegate and nurture things from a distance.
This is also a good year to study something new and excel in a new topic. If you do find yourself taking on new study this is really a year where you could get ahead and be recognised academically. The most important thing for you to remember this year is to take all the opportunities you possibly can as they will pay off in the future. So put any doubts and fears aside and go for it.
This year can be quite a pleasant cruise for dragon born people. There are certain elements to the year where your normal mode of operating goes underground and you can play some very powerful roles of influence in an incognito way. No one else may know what you are doing but you will know and this could give you a great source of satisfaction.
There can be times throughout the year where important people come to your aid or assist you in unusual ways to get ahead. It seems as though there is a dynamic group of like-minded people who are seeking your help to be a part of their purpose. This could be a project that really excites you and it could be really right for you but make sure you do due diligence on any projects before you leap into them enthusiastically.
The other dynamic you could find very interesting this year is a new form of study or academic pursuit. You will find a positive way of influencing new people that is very satisfying to you. And from a business perspective it will be an unusual way of operating. The emphasis will be on developing harmony in the workplace or marketplace and it could be aspects of the study that you find personally enriching.
Whatever you do this year you need to be careful and cautious about how you spend your money. You cannot afford to be overindulgent in your expenditure. You actually really need to understand more about money and taking care of your money. Even though you are generous in nature you do need to know how to spend your energy and money always is the equivalent of energy in motion.
Overall a very good year ahead, and a chance to pursue projects that will be dear to your heart. People who are born in the year of the rooster and the rat could be very lucky for you financially.
There are very exciting elements to this year for you at a personal level and being recognised may take up a certain focus in your life, however you do need to keep your feet firmly planted and make yourself concentrate on the most important task at hand to make anything happen.
There are certain harmonies of the year that will allow you to move ahead in leaps and bounds but you need to also factor in due diligence on anything that seems too good to be true. Even though the energy is a good around you, you also need to realise it only takes one simple mistake to lose a lot of money or have things go out of control so please, pay attention! In 2013, there are elements around you that could be under significant pressure. These elements could also go through clashing periods where it seems hard to make anything happen positively. There is always a way to make things happen positively but you need to think about it a little deeply and not rush things or give up before you give something a try.
You could be called upon this year to help a lot of people in a lot of situations. And to a certain extent you may need to make a decision about what you get involved with. Sometimes it seems a logical step to get involved with the most lucrative situation however that may not be appealing or satisfying to use this year and for good reason. Sometimes it is better to go with the project that feels nourishing and rewarding not only to yourself but also for others. It may not make sense to go for the least paying job… but it does not have to at the end of the day – you have to go with your gut feel so have the courage to do so.
In 2013 you especially need to be careful in your dealings with people who are born in the year of the monkey the tiger and other snake born people no matter how good the energy seems between you. Without being too alarmist it is good to understand that sometimes certain years can evoke certain energies within people that are just simply not beneficial and for you this year the tiger the monkey and the snake together are not beneficial combination. This year your lucky friends are the rooster and the ox – these particular animals can bring you good luck.
All in all the year ahead is good… Maybe a bit of pushing and pulling here and there but harmony for the most part – enjoy your year.
This year, in an overall sense, there is a romantic undertone that travels with the Feng Shui energies of the year and for horse born people there is an even stronger romantic overtone. If you are single you could meet somebody very special this year. If you are in a committed relationship you may have a more romantic year. And finally if you are single but you just want a bit of fun this year that may also too.
Aside from romance there may be issues that you are concerned about in relation to money and this is a good year to examine what is going on and what has set of actions you may need to take to improve things at this level. For instance, maybe you need to keep a tighter rein on expenditure. Or, maybe you need to re-examine the way you have allocated your finances. Or maybe you need an expert opinion on how to manage your money better? In either, any, or all instances a closer examination can only help your situation and it may be worthwhile looking at these things.
In 2014 it will be the year of the horse: which means there could be many things you need to examine to get yourself ready for this year. Essentially you do have favourable elements running in 2013 however there are a few clashing elements also at work in this year as well and so some things may not run as smoothly as they could. 2013 will bring up a number of issues for you to examine. This does not mean that you have bad luck. It does mean that there are a number of things that could be improved and if you ignore them in 2013 (or beyond) this will become a source of regret in the future. So paying attention now will keep you in good stead. Principally there are things that need to be de-cluttered in your life otherwise you cannot be as successful as you want to be. So start making a list of all the things that really should be examined and ask yourself how these need to change if you were really successful.
This can be a very busy year for goat born people. In 2013, you can move house, city, change job, do an adventure holiday or something else just as exciting. On the one hand your energies are not 100% in harmony with this year and on the other hand you can still have a very good year. But the source of your good year will be based upon your internal ability to remain positive and make positive things happen. And for this you may need to re-examine certain aspects of your life (or not – if you do this type of thing regularly).
This year you may keep coming back to two things: the first is money, and the second is pursuing academic studies. Regarding money, there are some things you could improve on here. It could be the way you have allocated money, spent money, earn money or save money. In any case you do have financial concerns regarding money and you may need to get an expert opinion. Do this before you reallocate your money. Regarding academic studies, last year there may have been a lot of chaos going on professionally. The question is did you lose confidence or did you think you needed to learn more things in order to move forward successfully? The second question is, is that really true? Maybe you could benefit from learning something but be careful about tying yourself into a long term study commitment that you may not utilise in the future.
Next year will be year where you are called upon to help in all kinds of ways, from a professional standpoint this may be the beginning of a new career… So be a little bit detached about what is going on immediately, and you may be able to examine it in a whole new light. We always need to sacrifice our attachment to something including our ideas to make progress.
This can be a good year for you even though some aspects of it may seem unsettled. By all means make important decisions that need to be made. There may be a certain level where you have to go with the flow and new directions will reveal themselves a little bit later on.
This is a year where the monkey can have a lot of harmony going on but can also get into trouble as well. At one level the monkey has a good harmony going with the year of the snake, and, at another level needs to be watchful of relationships and the type of relationships they form with others.
If you are the flirtatious type you can really get yourself in a lot of trouble this year. Be very careful of forming dubious relationships with people who are already committed. The monkey is never very good at completely hiding things and so you know what it is like when things blow up in your face… Remember…? Well, enough said.
There is a new idea you can pursue this year that could be very profitable. You need to be careful who you tell about this idea and it is very good to formalise the idea where possible. From a self-progress point of view this new idea may be really exciting for you. It could be something that is very, very fulfilling and so it is worth getting off the ground if you can do it this year. If not, next year could still be a positive year to get things happening so don’t give up on it.
You need to pay attention to your belongings this year, you could become absent-minded or careless and accidentally leave valuable things out where they shouldn’t be and lose them.
Avoid forming relationships with people born in the year of the Tiger, snake and monkey in 2013 (the combination of these astrological signs together). The astrological influences show that forming any type of relationship with these animal signs (in combination together) may be inauspicious and even disastrous this year.
This can be very good year for monkey born people. You do your best thing is when you could remain light and happy and so keep this as your focus this year.
This could be year where rooster born people are asked to lead or manage exciting new ventures. Many new job opportunities could also come to you this year, so you may be asked to lead something, create something, be the front runner for something, be a mentor, guide, developer, boss or chief and quite frankly you do all of these things very, very well.
What you also may need to consider is what you actually need to get your tasks done effectively and make sure you choose people who can be supportive or efficient at those tasks. Whatever you do don’t go for the cheapest quote! Do more research with your personnel and make sure you choose the right person.
There can be more money for you both this year and in the future but you may need to develop some ideas further before this newfound money can become a reality. It’s not a bad idea to explore these possibilities with people who are professional at it – but make sure you choose the right people to talk to.
Essentially it’s a harmonious year ahead for roosters anyway and your lucky relationships will be with people who are born in the year of the snake, ox, dragon and other roosters provided there are more than two (two roosters tend to be quite competitive when there are just two, so you need more than two to create positive relationships with other roosters). Have a great year in 2013.
There are certain elements to this year which the dog will appreciate greatly. For instance, the dog appreciates truth, reflection and sincerity and this year the energies will very much embody those three great virtues. Dogs may meet new people of like mind and be very happy engaging in social interactions that include self-exploration, self-empowerment and self-expression. Aside from meeting new people there could be a new romance on the horizon for singles or at least new possibilities with romance and this will make (single) dogs very happy.
Developing or interacting with your network may seem more emphasised this year. And this is because it’s a year where you can receive more help at many levels for the things that you would like to get off the ground. Normally the dog gives out his/her energy generously but this year will be a year where you can receive a lot back for a change. Other people may be very supportive and helpful in pointing you in your right direction to take charge of projects. Please weigh carefully any new job offers or career changes. It’s not that there’s anything negative with these, but you do need to make sure you get value out of them because the future depends upon it (and you are usually too generous for your own good).
In terms of finance, you need to be vigilant about where your money is going and how you are spending it. There is a temptation to think there’s always more coming but you need to be sensible financially this year as it can affect many other things you go to do. It would not hurt you to get professional guidance as you may be amazed at how helpful this can be for you.
The dog quite naturally possesses the ability to turn negative into positive. And this year will be no exception and in fact you may become “the hero” if called to pull off magical feats. This is an enjoyable year ahead so make sure you have a lot of fun and enjoy the social aspects of this year.
This year is the “clash year” for the pig because the pig clashes with the snake in the year of the snake. How severe or intense this could be will depend upon other connections in your unique Chinese astrology but in an overall sense it means that throughout the year you can encounter obstacles, delays, or other challenges at different times. At a positive level this ordinarily means you will undergo a lot of transformation and usually those changes will be positive in the long run.
This is the year where you can move house, change cities, change your job, or do something completely different to what you’ve ever done before. For instance you might like to go on an adventure holiday or live overseas for a while… If you do go on an adventure holiday, you need to be very careful of extreme sports, travelling, you need to be careful of losing things, and you also need to be very careful when driving or travelling in a car, boat, aeroplane or train. Being careless in 2013 with regards to travel is not very advisable.
At work there could be new developments that involve revealing something from the past that you would prefer not come to light. In reality there may be no way of avoiding this. So your best course of action might be to tell the truth and reveal the reasons why. After this, it will be up to others to make their decisions. It will be best to avoid influencing others if a serious element comes about. You would do better to let other people discover the truth themselves than try to defend it yourself.
This year it would be better for the pig to avoid stress if possible. Keep a balance of rest, recreation and good diet, etc, as this will be better health wise. Be sure to take care of your health in 2013.
