RAT
1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008

A better month than last month, particularly in love. You get along much better with people. Socially you begin to come out of your shell again. You thrive on attention with the knack of being witty, funny and saying the right things at the right time. Network, meet people and cultivate friendships. Wear the popularity scarf or shawl to strengthen personal charisma. At work, you may face some kind of change. Either a change in job or a change in the type of work you do. There is possibility of a promotion, although this is not guaranteed. Display a Victory Horse to strengthen promotion luck. Display a Rooster in the west of your bedroom to crystallize love luck. Peonies will also spruce up romance this month!

OX
1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009

A month of poor health lies ahead. Stay away from hospitals, cemeteries and other places that emit too much yin energy. Carry a Long Life Amulet Medallion if you are an elderly Ox, or if prone to illness. Avoid dangerous sports. Postpone trips and vacations till another time. At work, you have both allies and enemies, but you may not know which are which. Play your cards close to your chest. Wear your Horoscope Allies and Friends as a charm bracelet or display as figurines on your desk. Others may try to take credit for work you’ve done; this is a month to give in. Resist the urge to play top dog. Sometimes knowing how to concede defeat is the first step to ultimate victory.

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

The coming month could prove irksome and exasperating, particularly for the Tiger, who is not best at dealing with trying situations. There is quarrelsome energy which could blow up if you let your hot temper get the better of you. Focus on staying calm in frustrating situations. Carry a Peace and Harmony Amulet to promote feelings of serenity. You face some health trouble this month. Protect against falling ill by carrying a Health Medallion. Wearing the Twelve-Eyed Dzi will help boost energy levels if work or stress is getting to you. This is a poor month for investing or speculating on the stock market. Male Tigers have luck in love; female Tigers are likely to be distracted by more important concerns this month.

RABBIT
1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011

Things improve after last month’s competitive energies. You will find obstacles dissolving and new opportunities opening up for you. Heed the advice of those older and wiser than you. Although you may have your own ideas, it pays to seek alternative viewpoints. Augment money luck by displaying a Ship of Abundance near the entrance of your home. Fill your ship with symbols of wealth such as Ingots and Gold Bars, and a Laughing Buddha on the ship will ensure it brings happiness as well. There is some negative chi known as “sword fighting killing breath” this month. Overcome this by displaying your Horoscope Friends and Allies in the East part of your home or office. A water feature in the East will also help alleviate bad luck.

DRAGON
1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012

After three highly energized months, you are entering a more contemplative part of the year. A good time for planning, rather than action. Do not be too quick when making important decisions or the consequences could be major. You should be energizing the luck of self-discovery this month. Get a Crystal Point and hold it to help channel your thoughts. Step back and look at the bigger picture; self-analysis and scrutiny will help make your existence more fulfilling. There is danger of robbery, loss and violence with the #7 star. Display a Rhino & Elephant near your front door and carry an Anti-Burglary Amulet to protect against snatch thieves. Place a Bejewelled Wealth Tree to enhance the wealth energy in the SW.

SNAKE
1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013

Your luck is on an upswing and nothing much goes wrong for you this period. Anything you start will be a success! Trust your instincts and your own decisions; they are unlikely to be wrong. This is a good month for personal and spiritual development. Those of you in school or pursuing a course of study will do well academically. Boost good luck by inviting a bejewelled Luo Han on Chi Lin into your home. There is some danger of being mugged, so it is wise to wear the Hum pendant. Display a pair of Red Fu Dogs in your home to protect against theft. Carry an Anti-Burglary Amulet with you at all times. Avoid going out late at night.

HORSE
1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014

There are many emotional forces at work. Your inner demons are working against you, and you are likely to find yourself uncharacteristically sensitive and thin-skinned. Watch out for petty jealousies amongst friends, colleagues and loved ones. Your negative feelings are temporary, as long as you don’t allow them to control you. Wear a Travel Amulet Scarf to expel mischievous spirits from your life. Follow your own judgment and don’t allow yourself to be led astray by friends with their own agendas. Things may not always be what they seem. Remember, all suffering is in the mind. Be positive and refuse to be hurt or unhappy.

SHEEP
1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

The star of misfortune pays a visit, bringing calamity of all kinds. The month ahead could be a tough one. You could fall ill, friends could become enemies, and you could face slander and loss of money. But all this will only overcome you if you are weak. Strengthen personal energy by carrying the 5 Element Pagoda hanging. Things get better once this unpleasant month is over. You may face misunderstandings with your family. Display a Heart Sutra Pillar in the SW of your home to control the month 5 Yellow. Avoid too much activity in the SW to minimize aggravations this month.

MONKEY
1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016

This is a month when minor misfortunes trip you up. There is a blockage when it comes to money. Unexpected expenses crop up leading you to spend on unnecessary things. Strengthen wealth luck by positioning your Wealth Ship filled with zircon diamonds coming from your sheng chi direction. At work you face some trouble with gossip or backstabbing. Protect yourself by hanging a Mountain Painting behind your work chair. Try to stay low profile and wait till next month for important decisions. Avoid arguing with loved ones; it is just not worth the aggravation. Use an Amethyst Jewel to keep you in good spirits and for better relationship luck.

ROOSTER
1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017

There are many good things in store this month! Although you may not want to rock the status quo, do not be afraid to open yourself up to change. This is a month of transformations, but whether good or bad, some change is inevitable. Trust you will be able to make a good thing out of anything and chances are you will. Do not fear the unknown. Instead, enjoy the mystery of the unfamiliar. Many good things lie ahead, but only if you can embrace and accept them. Instead of keeping a fixed idea of what you want, transform what you have into better things. Your luck is good but you need to have the right mindset to fully profit from what the month has to offer. The only downside is poor health. Display a Bejewelled Medicine Buddha in the home to counter illness chi.

DOG
1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018

An excellent month, when everyone is on your side. You have many friends waiting in the wings to help you. If you need a favor, ask. The answer will likely be yes. This is a fruitful time to catch up with old friends. You never know what reconnecting with an old acquaintance may lead to. Strengthen friendship luck with your symbolic astrological allies and friends near you. In your career, this is a good time to catch the eye of your superiors. Being outspoken leads to good things – you may need to blow your own trumpet a little. As long as you do it with the right motivation, it brings only good things! Place a Victory Banner in the NW. For money luck, wear the Wealth Medallion. Rekindle love sparks with a bright light in the SW.

BOAR
1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019

You have recognition luck this month. Your talents and efforts get noticed and rewarded. Crystallize promotion luck with a Windhorse in the South or NW of your office. You may be invited to be part of a high profile project. Personal luck brings success to the project, so if it is for a cause you believe in, there’s much merit to be gained by being involved. For wealth luck, carry the Wealth Chest Hanging. Place 9 golden pears in the NW. Your love life may get a little complicated, particularly if you are interested in more than one person. Watch you do not get yourself entangled in a love web. Carry or wear the Double Happiness symbol if you want to protect your relationship with your partner.
