Hey, it’s the new year, let’s hear the good stuffs!
1. Rat Forecast (Year 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960)
Rats like to be ahead of the game, at the forefront of the action, and where they can give the orders. Restless and inquisitive, these are busy people whose minds are constantly on the go. Above all, they are clever and instinctively shrewd.
Rats are born with a keen sense of adventure and enjoy the thrill that comes with living on the edge. Foreign travel is their particular joy. However, in truth, it is power and money that are the underlying motivating forces in the lives of Rats.
2. Ox Forecast (Year 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961)
Ox folks are noted for their diligence and industriousness. They are strong, solid, and practical individuals, reputed for their common sense and their ability to keep their feet firmly on the ground. Characteristically, Ox-born people are resolute and persistent, possessing a seemingly untiring endurance than enables them to keep on going through thick and thin.
At times, this very determination can verge on the stubborn, for once they have made up their minds on a course of action, very little will deter them from reaching their objection.
3. Tiger Forecast (Year 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962)
Tigers are endowed with a protecting spirit and will fight for their own rights, and for the rights of those they love. Tigers can be unpredictable and should never be underestimated. They like to have their fingers on the pulse and like to feel they are always several moves ahead of the game.
Intelligent, alert, and far-sighted, Tiger members are quick learners and can pick up a skill in a twinkling of an eye. They find it easy to move between jobs, juggling several tasks in the air, and changing careers completely – at least once, but usually more – in a lifetime.
4. Rabbit Forecast (Year 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963)
Rabbits are sensitive people and known as the peacemakers of the world. They detest violence in all its forms and will use any means at their disposal to avoid confrontation and unpleasantness. Rabbits are wise people, born with an innate understanding of the world, and a deep insight that belies their seemingly calm and casual behaviour.
Highly cultured and abundantly gifted with creative talent, members of this group have fine tastes. They are stylish people with a huge capacity for appreciating art and an exquisite eye for beauty.
5. Dragon Forecast (2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964)
Exotic and dynamic, Dragons tend to be extremely charismatic. They invariably lead a high-profile existence, since they like to court the limelight. They are fortunate individuals, seemingly watched over by Lady Luck, for no matter what mishap occurs, they always seem to land on their feet and walk away smiling.
Success and the Dragon go together. These are people with big ideas, who are supremely confident and have the power to make the impossible possible. They are big spenders, and they are not afraid to take risks with their finances as well as their careers, but somehow they always manage to win through.
6. Snake Forecast (2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965)
Shrewd and subtle, Snakes tend to be private people – calm, secretive and reserved. Moreover, behind their observant gaze lies a careful, analytical mind, which gives this group an exquisite eye for detail, and an almost infallible ability to get straight to the crux of the matter. These thoughtful people are endowed with wisdom and a deep philosophical understanding of the ideas and fluctuation of life.
Snakes crave peace and tranquillity. It is mental energy, rather than physical dynamism that drives the Snake on. Sitting in quiet contemplation is their preferred state of being. Snakes do not like to be rattled.
7. Horse Forecast (2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966)
Bright, social, and bursting with energy, Horses are blessed with sparkling wit and a brilliant mind. Vivacious, lively, and full of irrepressible enthusiasm, they take life at a gallop and cram more into one day than most others do in a week. Freedom and independence are as important to them as the air they breathe.
Horses can be erratic and volatile creatures, who cannot tolerate a routine humdrum existence. A low boredom threshold keeps them busy and can drive them to act on impulse. Versatility, a razor-sharp mentality, and the ability to pick up new skills at a glance, make horses infinitely suitable for any profession they care to take up.
8. Goat Forecast (2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967)
Gentle and cultured, Goats are instinctively nurturing and caring. It is not in their nature to protest, rebel, or buck the system since disagreement and aggression seriously upset their systems. They want life to be ‘neat and tidy’ with no raw edges, no roughness or unpleasantness of any description. Kind, helpful, and considerate to others, their thoughtfulness is reputed throughout their lifetimes.
Goats not born to lead and are uncomfortable if they have to take the reins into their own hands. Taking life at a gentle pace, enjoying the tranquillity of nature, and absorbing the beauties of music and the arts, are all their hearts’ desire.
9. Monkey Forecast (2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968)
Monkeys are bright, alert creatures, who are able to size up a situation in the twinkling of an eye, and comfortably adapt to any circumstance or company in which they find themselves. They have an inborn understanding of what makes people tick which enables them to manipulate people, and engineer situations to their own advantage.
In life, Monkeys seek amusement. For them, monotony is a killer, life is too short to hang around digging deeply for facts. Instead, they want to take in a little of everything because they cannot bear to miss a single trick. Charming, funny, and full of high jinks, there’s never a dull moment when a Monkey is around.
10. Rooster Forecast (2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969)
Tough, resilient, and strong-minded, Roosters are feisty creatures, who respect those who match their own strengths and untiring spirit. With their honest and forthright nature, they don’t have time to stroke people’s egos or to take the sensibilities of more sensitive souls into account. They feel that others can either take it or leave it.
Roosters run their homes with super efficiency. Their status in the community is important to them, and they will work long hours to climb slowly and methodically to the top of the ladder. They have a love of stately and splendid ceremonies and adore grand occasions when they can dress up in their finery.
11. Dog Forecast (2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970)
Dogs are essentially kind and caring individuals who put others before themselves. They are the most unselfish of the Animal signs. They are also endowed with permanent quality morals of integrity, honesty and fortitude.
Generally set in their ways, Dogs are in no hurry to change the system or the operation of the organisations in which they work. However, they are cheerful and industrious, and always prepared to give their colleagues a helping hand. They are responsible people, intelligent, fair-minded, and willing to take on extra commitments when necessary.
12. Boar Forecast (2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971)
With their sunny natures and cheerful dispositions, Boars are jovial characters who are obliging and outgoing. They are relaxed and unpretentious individuals, inherently kind, caring, and generous to a fault. They expect honesty in return and are therefore perhaps naively trusting. Thankfully, Boars do not bear a grudge for long even if taken for a ride.
Deep down, it is a life of luxury that Boars crave. Therefore, among the Animal Signs, the Boar has perhaps the greatest reputation for luxurious and comfortable desires.
