Today is Chinese New Year's Eve and mom has been busy preparing a feast for tonight and tomorrow. I hope I get to taste some of the goodies.
According to the Chinese calendar, 2009 is the Year of the Earth OX (January 26, 2009 - February 13, 2010). The Chinese calendar is based on solar and lunar cycles so the new year falls on a different day of the Western solar calendar each year.
Here's what's in store for us this year:
The OX year is a conservative year, one of traditions and values. This is not a year to be outrageous. A slow but steady year.
This OX year will bring stability and growth where patience and diligence pays off.
This is a year of Harvest - when we reap what we have sown. Take care of business this year, do not let things slide.
If you were born in the year of the RAT
This year is a stable year for family life and will be a joyful year. Career wise the rats will take on more responsibilities and will feel the pressure of the extra duties. A good year of steady progress.
If you were born in the year of the TIGER
This is the year for keeping a low profile, tigers. Because of the slow pace of the OX year, it will be a frustrating time for you. You like things to be move quicker, you will need to show restraint.
If you were born in the year of the RABBIT
The year of the OX is well suited to the rabbit nature. The slower pace of this year will see you spending more time with friends and family. A good year to upgrade your home, or for buying or selling a house.
If you were born in the year of the DRAGON
In business and in romance your word for this year is integrity. Keep your head down and you will make steady progress this year. Established relationships will be comfortable and easy during this year of the OX. A slow but sure progress will be made.
If you were born in the year of the SNAKE
A very good year for Snakes! The steady pace of the OX year is well suited to the snake person. Act on an opportunity - this is your year.
If you were born in the year of the HORSE
Although you are rearing to surge ahead, this is another year of caution for the horse. Not a good year to strike out in new directions, consolidate your positions instead. On the brighter side, Love will bring comfort this year.
If you were born in the year of the SHEEP
The Ox is the direct opposite of the sheep, therefore expect challenges in all areas this year. Keep a low profile.
If you were born in the year of the MONKEY
This is a year of moderate progress for monkeys. Work will slow down this year allowing the monkey more personal time. It also allows for quality time with friends and family.
If you were born in the year of the ROOSTER
Great opportunities for rooster this year. A good time to recoup losses. You will make great progress at work, reaping rewards of your labor. Emotional ties bring joy. Your prestige and reputation increase.
If you were born in the year of the DOG
A year for dogs to keep a low profile. Put more attention into matters at home, spending quality time with loved ones. The simple pleasures will bring happiness this year.
If you were born in the year of the PIG
A year for the pig to follow his/her instinct, laying foundations for the future. This is a bright and hopeful year for the pig. Do not take unnecessary risks though.
