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 Metal Rabbit 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 year can be an unusual year for you because even though there are not the most fabulous influences flowing your way at one level, there is certainly energy travelling with you that could allow you to make progress and even make exceptional advancements and developments using a more underground method. Basically, it's a good year for research, study and development. It's also a good year for making quick products that can be useful for people. If you try and fly the way your normally might you will find yourself enveloped in obstacles and other setbacks – so be patient and expect there to be some kind of waiting around this year. The things you do in this year can produce brilliant results and rewards so flow with it. Be very careful signing contracts or going into new business ventures – especially with Rabbit born people. There is a penalty in force this year between the Rabbit and the Rat. The Rat should carry a dog charm with them to help waylay the influences.
There is a bit of romance in the air for Rat born people this year. You can meet people of great significance in your destiny this year and romantic relationships are included so watch out for cupids arrow. You also need to take care of your health this year as there are a few indications shown in this department. And be watchful of people misinterpreting your intentions. If something like this happens aim to clear up the confusion earlier rather than later – otherwise you can attract a bit of gossip.
There is a certain element about this year where it's just not your year and, at another level if stay a little bit underground things can improve at a faster. It seems as though there will still be a lot of debris for you to clear from 2010 and the main effort you may need to make is to stop yourself from going into the whys? the hows? the whens and all these other (normal) questions you'd ask in these situations. The most important thing for you to do this year is keep yourself frees of all these questions so that you can keep steering your boat forward. If you get caught up in all the usual... (dot, dot, dot) you'll lose your ability to be effective and that will affect your capacity to get yourself (and others) through it. Keep your focus on your goals and keep moving forward.
There is the suggestion that your immediate family could be under significant stress this year. Having said that there are still hidden opportunities and windfalls that could come your way – so keep yourself positive so that you don't miss these. Male Ox's should be cautious in new relationships this year (let any new relationship prove itself first).
This is a year where you may be called on to help or advocate on more than one occasion – even with people you didn't expect. You have to know that if you truly come to the aid and help from the heart (with that bountiful bold generosity that most tigers have got) it will win you a lot of blessings – even in years to come. And..., if you bring along a few friends to help out in whatever you do – it will create a lot of fun, good feeling and attention – so it's a warm and fuzzy for you this year. 2011 is also your romance flower year and you can meet someone special this year. Having said that... you need to be careful about not giving away your heart too quickly or indiscriminately. Let the romance develop its course – so don't rush (in where angels fear to tread) like you normally do – let it develop (with time).
This is a good year for new things. You might have lots of new creative ideas and generate new projects. Allow yourself a little imaginative space to let this foster and grow. You may be surprised by the things you come up with and they way they could work out. The outcomes could be just as beneficial to you as they would be for others. Be careful of losing things and check the fine print on any contract.
This is a good year for money, being in the limelight, having your projects recognised, getting special chances to prove your theories, and generally being "out there..." So there's new opportunities, new ideas and possibly a whole new way of doing things as your forecast for this year so do you have the courage to take this forward? As funny as it seems, you want to make your goals based around what you want this year – rather than what you're afraid of or your best shot at imagining a positive outcome. Yes, its true, you do have to be realistic but don't let niggling worries overshadow you – otherwise you could miss out on a lot – including everything you've worked for – for years...!!
Some of your past issues may raise their heads for you this year (usually when you don't want them to) but consider this as an opportunities to apply the inner strength that you do have deep down. The pig, the goat and the dog are your friends this year – doing anything with those animal signs can bring a lot of harmony and flow. Avoid doing anything with the Rat however as there is a penalty in force this year (you will have bad luck if you try to do things together). There's a lot of support and energy flowing your way this year, so focus on your goals and go for it! Take it easy on the road (driving).
This is one of those years where you go "Yeah!" It's not good, not bad, it's not your best flow that's for sure but if you can focus on which direction you want to go to (in the future) that could be a good place for you to start in 2011. In an overall sense you will go a farther if you work from behind the scenes than try to put yourself out there to take the limelight. This is not limelight year for you even though there could be some great possibilities for creating wealth. Instead, you'll probably notice that it really is time for you to concentrate on what you want to do in the future as the future you thought you might have had... may not still be the direction it feels right to go in any longer. Go deep Dragon, go deep. This is a year of change and there could be a lot of things changing in the environment that you just have to keep up with so let yourself go with the flow and the great helper you normally are.
There are certain elements to this year that you will find very protective. There could be more travel, more things going on and you can expect to be very busy generally. In particular travel is strongly indicated for you this year and there could be good monetary gains that come as a result. It could be a fine balance, so don't tie yourself into too may commitments. Instead, keeping yourself free will allow you to service a wider area and bring greater effect. You need to be careful of money loss this year and going into ventures that can cause financial stress. Again, don't commit yourself to things – staying a free agent will bring you greater rewards.
There could be more tolerance needed in close personal or working relationships this year. You may need to exercise a lot more patience to avoid relationships degenerating into "that stressed out feeling."
According to your Chinese astrology the year of the metal rabbit is not the year to be caught up in any morbid scenes (it shows this will have a bad effect on your health and vitality and you are vulnerable to having this energy enter your body this year) so avoid this as much as possible.
This year forecasts a lot bright happy energy for you and there could be many times where you are called upon to share your talents, skills, knowledge, general help... Indeed by the end of the year it could be you that feels like you've taken the benefit rather than given the benefit – even if you've helped others a great deal. Your help and expertise is very much needed this year so giving from the heart will only bring you extra blessings in years to come... and we all need a bit of that so you will be a winner here.
Romance is in the air for Horse born people and there could be many personal events that bring a lot of personal happiness to you in 2011. There will be a few things for you to look at this year – one in particular is how you really feel about your working life and what you really want to do. The other may be certain dynamics that go on in your family and it may sadden you to face the truth about some of those elements. Watch out for making other people jealous of you this year. it is wisdom to watch out for who you say things to and whether it will be beneficial to do so... you do have a lot of people supporting you this year and in general but there are also those around who do not understand you (and nor do they want to) so be aware of that and don't be afraid.
Great year ahead for the Goat... whilst the year may start out a little bumpy you need to have faith in your ability to direct things into the positive and you really do have this energy travelling with you at a work level as well as a personal relationship level. It's a good year to learn things – not only to impart things for others to learn but even learn personal lessons that can strengthen you and allow you to strengthen others in turn. It's also time for you to support the things that you think really matter and even though you might get a little bit of opposition if you move forward being cautious and strong, the people who oppose you initially will transform their attitudes in time and the things you are introducing will be appreciated by others who take benefit from them.
There is an element to this year where you will receive help in some things that have tied you up in the past. Keep your learning on as you take this help and you will be able to increase the value in yourself as well as others. This is a great year ahead – your friends are those born in the year of the rabbit, pig and horse.
This will be an interesting year ahead and no doubt you'd enjoy yourself sitting on the fence like you normally do... however, there will be elements of this year which require you to act and in particular donating your wisdom and your wise monkey experience will be graciously received and win you a mountain of blessings. Having said that, there are certain auspicious elements that float with you this year which will help in dissolving past ills and this will allow you to move forward with all the happiness of a chirpy monkey. There could be a move on for you this year and you might change jobs or move house... and even though there can be opportunities for greater wealth this year you also need to be very careful with money as there are energies around this year that could make you lose money. Aside from this you don't want to go to extraneous lengths to try and get money (it would back fire on you this year). You've got a lot of good energies to turn the negative into positive this year and that's what you need to put your faith in. Remain open and honest in relationships and this will bring good results.
This is your "CLASH" year this year and boy there can there be a clash going on... from a Feng Shui point of view you don't want to be in the east location of a building or facing east this year! Even then it shows to be a year where it's harder to get things off the ground and no amount of begging or pleading or threatening will get you there any faster either! This is a year where you may have to re-think certain plans (coz your original plan is not going to work) and it's not a year to act impulsively (coz boy that could land you in trouble!!)... You need to be careful travelling – especially in cars and you need to be very careful of what you say because the effect could reverberate off the walls for a few years!! Roosters are always more prone to attracting lawsuits but this year you definitely need to let others handle what should be said – according to circumstances. Believe it or not you actually can make more money this year but you can also lose it if you are not careful or if you've entered into the wrong deal.
You need to be very watchful on "troubled romances" that just seem to come your way because the lid could blow off if you're married and in the wrong position with it. Carrying a dog charm on you will be good this year.
This is a harmonious year ahead for you and there's lots of positive achievements that can come from remaining simple and forging ahead harmoniously (as you will discover). In particular one thing that will stand out this year is the way in which past obstacles may find their own solutions or at the very least they may drop away from affecting you with the same force as they have in previous years – and this will make all the difference to your self-esteem (not to mention the fact that you can just move forward now)... There are good career opportunities this year and you won't be alone with those things, but you do need to be very cautious as far as making decisions about what to do with your money this year. Gambling or going on the stock market is not recommended this year and you really do have a chance to lose big time if you ignore this advice. Love is in the air for Dog born people and love just may raise its head in the most unexpected places. It could even be that you've known the person for many years or the person is closely connected to people you've known for years. Tread lightly and let love forge its own course and this will bring the best results. Take care with travel this year. Don't take any chances on the road.
Even though this is a good year for you astrologically there are a few cautions to take note of as well. Work-wise this can be a good year ahead – especially if you are connected to rabbit and goat born people but you need to make sure your judgement is not affected by things. Certain people do make you nervous and you tend to throw up defences that can put you on the outer. In your working area this year there are a lot of chances for you to misread people. Without even realising it you may misjudge the relevance of some things or offend people very easily – so keep a watch out for this.
There are also great new networks and connections you can hook up with (this year) that would be extremely beneficial for you. However, these people are of a different calibre than what you're used to and you need to guard against being misunderstood as this would affect your ability to hook up to new people, new lifestyles, new dynamics. Be aware that if people think you are too casual – they may not be so interested in you because of the way they operate (very exact and ordered). So step outside the box if you'd like to take advantage of these new opportunities.
Be careful with travel this year and avoid being too impulsive. Thoughtful things you do this year can bring special blessings.
