This can assist you greatly in years in terms of creating future wealth and achieving your business and financial goals so follow the signal and be willing to open yourself up to new adventures.

In 2016 you may need to be careful about people cheating you. In this day and age, there are many scams out in the marketplace and there could be many ways to get swindled. Some of the stars in your chart this year show that you could be easily framed our set up to take the blame. Do not be extreme in your thinking otherwise you can make big mistakes. Assess your goals accurately and realistically this year and start off with forecasts that are achievable and easier to manifest. Avoid anything high risk and stay conservative in your thinking. Be very aware that people may not be what they seem. Avoid greed or pettiness whether it’s your own or coming from others. These two aspects can reverse any good things going on and make you lose contracts.

This will likely be a very social year ahead and people may enjoy your conversation. Many people consider you to be a trustworthy source of information and even an authority on many topics (which you generally are) so share when you know thoughtfully taking care to protect your info and provide good value.

In terms of romance this year the rooster is your peach blossom. However you need to be very careful not to become involved in extra (marital) affairs otherwise these could backfire in a very bad way. Do not get sexually mislead if you are single. This year the peach blossom element can be very kind and cruel for you.

Health-wise you need to follow good diet regimes this year and opt for healthy choices. You should also take care of your personal safety and avoid taking risks that are harmful. High action sports and activities are not for you this year as it would be easy for you to attract accidents.



Being the generous, caring, helping personality you are, this year there will be the need to put a big curb on spending to help others… and avoid becoming over committed in terms of helping someone out

There can be the temptation to spend more money this year and even spend more money than you earn or you could find yourself wanting to go out on a limb for investments that are pretty risky and without financial merit. Due diligence, due diligence, due diligence. Things may seem like they are what you want them to be but you would do better to check the fine print and not get into the habit of over spending or over committing yourself beyond your means. Keep your feet on the ground and do not allow yourself to be led by others or chase after bright golden shiny objects that are maybe even a little bit too good to be true (even for you to believe normally). Until things have a proven track record you need to maintain a conservative stance ..

This year you may need to prioritise your time/work/stress levels and look at how you can balance these better. Eating properly, relaxing, going to the gym or doing meditation and yoga could all be important to you. Meditation will be good for helping you to manage your thoughts and move yourself into a space that keeps you comfortable and productive.

There are good romantic potentials for you this year with the stars indicating happy events or events that bring a lot of good memories and cheer. Single Ox people may meet someone special this year and committed Ox may enjoy good times.



Even though you like to be a trailblazer in everything you do, this year your animal sign will be clashing with the monkey year so you need to take a little extra care in terms of your health and the activities (in particular extreme sports, etc) that you go to do… Letting yourself dangling off the edge of the cliff might be what you normally love… but just check that the ropes are all tied and secure in the year of the monkey.

This year you can attract more obstacles and delays in the course of your normal activities. These may range from complete standstills to minor irritations. The real test will be not losing heart or focus due to the fact that you are delayed and it disturbs your sense of magnetism and allure. In 2016 you need to keep a very watchful eye on your spending. You could find yourself with large expenditure due to the desire to impress or the desire to be indulgent just for the hell of it. Gambling will not work for you in 2016. These could be a lot of money, time, resources lost this way… and be very careful if travelling this year – even thgouh travelling is your second nature.

There could be new opportunities work-wise this year if you want to expand your network and plenty of people who come forward to help you..

Romance may be a little more difficult this year. And you might find yourself a little up and down in your relationships. Check whether you are more impatient or having unrealistic expectations this year. You could be acting out your anxiety and projecting it on to others. Be sure to get enough rest. This always calms a tired Tiger.



This year you can attract a lot of benefactors who really believe in you, your project and your work. They may take you under their wing and really assist you to make things flow beneficially for you. Potentially, this can really boost your finances and also create a whole new career pathway for you.

It will be important to resist becoming greedy or arrogant on this journey because it will have a devastating ripple effect and outcome for everyone. There could be times where you need to exercise a great deal of patience and self-control. You may need to remain loving and co-operative with people to make things happen. At this point you need a reality check on what people are doing for you… there’s no time to be a Princess about this…

You have a lot of career energies traveling with you this year. There could be amazing career advancement, opportunity, recognition and fortune. You do have energies traveling with that can help you to transform negative conditions into really positive ones. This will go a long way and have a lasting impression on others so make sure you take advantage of this position and really go for it.

In terms of romance this year you might have to exercise a little extra patience. Emotions and feelings can be high and low so you might have to exercise more tolerance and love.

One of your big challenges this year will be procrastination. Procrastination can bring a lot of mistakes in your work and also in your personal life. You need to decide whether you are really up to the great opportunities you have coming your way this year and step forward confidently and carefully. Be diligent to explore any information you might need to investigate aspects of your work. Avoid high risk thinking about anything. Be willing to take the negative with the positive and learn from any mistakes. Above all, do not compromise your work ethic or integrity.



Despite the fact that the year of the monkey is one of your favourite years… this year you can attract obstacles, delays, difficulties or even being framed or misrepresented if you speak out too openly. To be clear, others could be very sensitive and may rally against you this year if you mirror their stuff or force their hand too much. So you need to stay calm and use creative problem solving techniques in order to get your point across. You do have a remarkable ability to tell people things in a way where they feel good about themselves. So explore this ability a bit further and stay calm in what seems to be negative situations. Under no circumstances should you ignore proper advice or your own due diligence. So be creative so that you can transform situations and peoples thinking processes. Have confidence in your ability to be successful with this but at the same time be aware of people who do not have good wishes for you. Exploring your creative expression and testing it out in various situations means you will have the ability to become the “noble person” of that moment and be of great help to others. Remaining cool, being honest and confident will allow you to give good advice and it’s this that will bring you goodwill and blessings.

On a more practical note: remain more cautious this year, avoid high risk ”ANYTHING” and especially take care with extreme sports or even high risk fun activities. Injuries could occur easily for you this year. And the last thing you want is to end up with a plaster around your leg or some other such injury because you’re likely to invent a second injury due to being cooped up and dying of boredom! Please be careful when driving.

So take care, make sure you get enough rest, you definitely need your fair share of parties and fun this year… Take time out. It is important to trust people who are close to you and stay within the company of people who love you. One of the things that’s very much needed in your life at the moment is a creative outlet. Being the dragon you already have a powerful way of doing things but you do need a regular creative outlet… 2016 can be an extremely productive and creative year if you can maintain your balance.



This year you have a special energy present that can brings benefactors ton assist you, neutralise problems, help pull you through financial issues or infuse your career with positive energy. This star also acts if you are in need or in danger. Now, this does not mean that you can be reckless or careless. You will have your fair share of challenges this year. In particular it is really important for you to stay on top of financial situations and matters and you cannot entrust other people to this important job. It is you who should be very aware of money in and money out. Avoid making rash purchases or buying things you don’t need. It is also good to avoid loaning friend money or spending money based upon the advice of friends. Don’t lend money unless you’re absolutely sure it’s OK if you never see that money again. This is a bad year for loans for you.

There will be certain times of the year where you experience delays or have other setbacks. If you find yourself in an experience like this you need to make a pan to forge ahead and then start the plan! Do not let yourself think so much about why, what, when, where, if, but… because this will get you into trouble. Go forward and conquer!!

One of the extra things that you might need to be aware of is people backstabbing you or being petty. In fact, you need to guard yourself against being too sensitive and having unkind comments affect you or making you feel insecure. To counteract these problems it is recommended that you don’t spend a lot of time addressing every tiny little point (unless you need to for work or something)… It is better to create a good vibration and move ahead being the change…

Finally pay attention to food this year (eating healthy foods and food choices. And you need to be careful when driving. Don’t be tempted to speed in the car when driving. This is not a good year from speeding and driving.



This year you need to pay attention to planning in relation to your work and the finances associated with working. There is a lot of potential for making silly blunders that end up costing you money or time. Regarding financial information you need to listen to other people advice (PLUS then do your own due diligence) before making important financial decisions.

During 2016 you are not in the position to be able to take a lot of chances and nor will you be lucky with un-researched speculative ventures. In 2016 it is wise to take advice from professionals so keeping it simple, keeping it a safe bet, keeping it conservative should be your mantra financially. Otherwise you can suffer a lot if you have too much stress this year. Unfortunately a lot of stress would affect your body adversely.

From a health point of view in 2016 you should try and do things at a slower pace, do a form of meditation or tai chi or qigong. Eat healthy food, get enough rest and make sure your life is balanced with a bit of recreation… This is how 2016 needs to be for you.

This is a year where you need to avoid visiting sick people or being in places where there are a lot of sick people and going to funerals if possible. It would also be best if you avoided extreme sports, take more care with driving and kept your attention on personal safety if traveling.

This is a good year for personal relationships and love relationships. Take special time out to spend with your family and loved ones. Be tactful and supportive with sensitive issues.



This is a tricky year for you to make a lot of money. It’s not that you wouldn’t make it at all… it’s more that it’s hard for you to pursue it, find the right investments or invest in the right investments. You may have more difficulty getting the right information you need, putting the right energy into exploring it properly. It seems that every time you see something you think is good, it may do a vanishing act on you and not turn out to be as good as first perceived. Therefore, following along with safer, more conservative bets is a better option for you in 2016.

You could experience a lot of setbacks. This is due to the Goat being in the SW with the grand duke (monkey). So it is good for you to have some Feng Shui this year to help compensate this.

On a different note, good news is there for relationships and love this year. If you are single you have a good chance to meet your life partner. If you are married you can enjoy quality time with your loved one bearing in mind that you need to keep yourself free of romantic entanglements that could destroy your marriage. There is certainly more opportunity for romance etc, but there is also the energies of “entrapment” with that as well. Social gatherings should be lots of fun.

Be vigilant about health this year. You can get a few illnesses here and there. But if you eat good food and avoid bad lifestyle things (drinking, smoking, not sleeping properly etc) you should be OK. Meditation is very good for you this year and it may help you to concentrate and focus better as well. Avoid extreme sports this year (you can get hurt). Take extra care of all your personal belongings and personal safety if travelling.



This year you have the highlight of the Fire Monkey upon you and it’s a good to start the year on a very positive note where possible (even if it’s not entirely true..). By making a good start, you can create sparkle and splendour wherever you go because of all the animals signs, when you have tough things going on in your chart this just makes the monkey get tougher… Of all the animal signs, the monkey does not give up and in fact he/she often exceeds only to create their best in these types of conditions. Go monkey go!

Career-wise you can really shine this year and create flair and pizazz to any project you set your mind to… People will welcome your idea and creative ways of seeing things and approaching or creating new strategies. Allowing your creativity to flow will bring about really good results and in reality this is the way you can make more money this year.

In 2016 your wealth luck is NOT flowing on the stock market and you need to avoid risk-taking financially. This also means keeping expenditure at a low. Be more on the conservative side and the fruits will flow. Do not get so worried about money in this year. Yes, it’s true that you don’t have the same money making capacity as you normally do, however, just keep your mind free of negativity and be that creative, witty monkey that runs hoops around others. This is the way you will shine this year and attract new admirers.

Finally, keep yourself away from people who gossip this year. You do not need to be around petty minds or petty people. Keep yourself healthy, eat good food, do some exercise, meditate, do yoga… and avoiding driving fast in the car. PLUS avoid extreme sports.



This year you might be asked to lend a hand with certain things or help people by giving advice and support. It will be good to play this role if you can make the time because it will win you more blessings and all favours lead somewhere.

Financially the rooster is in good shape this year and there are very beneficial stars that help boost your finances this year. In particular you may attract the attention of new clients who bring further benefits and work to your door in 2016. Working with older men brings you a lot of luck and helps to clear any obstacles that are loitering around you. Work on improving your network as this may lead to new partnerships or co-operative conditions whereby you can expand and create elite business opportunities for others.
Do be careful of scams and people who are deceitful. You don’t want to go there. But creating really positive new products within your business can help you to expand and become well known.

This year you have an “absent minded star” following you so double-check all your details and investment details. You also need to take care of your personal possessions in this way as well (ie don’t leave your phone and your wallet somewhere…!!).

One of the things that might be important for you to take care of this year is your health and your confidence. Don’t let yourself get upset about small things and then give up on things. There may come a time throughout the year where you have to pay attention to your feelings. Technically speaking this is the struggle to think positively and annihilate negative thoughts that chip away at your self-confidence. From this point of view, make a plan to conquer any weak feelings and push forward with all your plans this year.

Peach blossom is in your palace this year and it’s in there in quite an intense and seductive way. Beware of entrapment and being seduced. You would really lose your focus and your self-confidence if you pursue a small side relationship. You might also lose your life partner if you get caught (which you may well do – high chance). For singles seeking romance, be sure to give any romantic dalliances the time to progress as these may be more focused on sex than love and you want to make sure before committing.



People born in the year of the Dog are always very straightforward and honest in their dealings… for this reason you are advised to stay away from dodgy people and scammy type deals. Not only will you not be able to manoeuvre this successfully (at any level)… but the real people who have complete control of the situation will “control it” beyond anything you can imagine – so keep yourself clear of this and get yourself out of there.

This is NOT your biggest and best financial year of all time this year. You can encounter a lot of obstacles and setbacks. Don’t get too serious about the setbacks but DO MAKE SURE you plan, plan a bit more, check your plan, get others to check your plan, look at all possibilities from all different angles and then go for it. Remember, DO NOT sink your whole portfolio into anything this year. Back Doggy Back. And make sure you have extra money put aside for contingencies.

One of the worst things you can do this year is take it all too seriously… It’s very easy for you to get stressed out this year but by the end of the year you’ll realise that all that high blood pressure was for absolutely nothing. So let me tell you at the beginning of the year… not to get stressed out throughout the year and then, at the end of the year you can say to yourself – I’m so glad I didn’t get stressed out over this!! 🙂 Travel is really good for you this year. Take care though… don’t believe everybody!

Relationships can be tricky, your work can be tricky, your money can be tricky… so just relax a bit. If you examine closely all of the above may have nothing to do with you. Now that puts you on a different level with the whole thing now doesn’t it. OK take it easy Dog. Plan to have a good time. Learn how to smile. And don’t get serious. You’re so beautifully simple and honest – someone will appreciate you 🙂



This year you can have very good financial luck, luck with your career, new opportunities, you can increase your finances very well and you may get brand new work opportunities to tackle which are completely different from what you have been doing.

One of the things that you will want to do is go through the fine print on documents to make sure everything is really alright. It will also be fortuitous to get yourself a money manager to help you invest and take care of your money properly.

You may also need to examine any security confidences that you need to keep if you are to accept new positions. The pig doesn’t hide things very well and even small breaches may be discovered which could affect your working life (even attracting lawsuits, money loss, etc). Be on the lookout for scams and one of the things you WILL want to do is stop gossiping yourself.

Women can bring you great assistance this year. They may pave your way and open up new opportunities for you. Be sure to practice a bit kindness and generosity in your outlook. Being greedy at this point may set you back somewhat.

Take care of your health in 2016 and eat well, get plenty of rest before you go to the next party 🙂
