Chinese Astrology is
pretty old. According to it, the year of birth does not
only tell only your age but also indicates a certain
phase or aspect of sixty year circle of time.
In Chinese system of
astrology, each year begins early in the calendar year
on a new moon and relates to one of the twelve animals.
Their qualities "animate" the year and
colour it with their distinct natures.
Therefore you may find
yourself born in the year of Rat or a horse or even a
dragon as the lore says it. People born in a particular
animal year share certain common traits in the same
manner as people born in common zodiac do.

Characteristics Of Your Animal Sign
Rat people are expressive,
honest and most importantly restless. They are friendly
in nature and cherish the company of those whom they
Though expressive and talkative sometimes, still rat
people rarely confide in any one.
Normally rat people are well organized and quick
workers. They earn good amount of money but spend it
Rat people get very well along with people born in years
of Dragon ,Monkey and Ox. They are not however
compatible with Horse & rabbit people.
Characteristics - Rat
the bait's there, boy, the Rat will surely take it!
Clever and quick-witted, Rats revel in wretched excess
and are utterly disarming to boot. As well, they are
possessed of excellent taste and flaunt it at every
turn. To top it all off, they get along with almost
anyone and have a gaggle of loyal friends. What a life!
Behind that sweet smile, though, Rats are wolves in
sheep's clothing. They are highly skilled at promoting
their own agenda, with greed often ruling their actions.
This may be why they tend to appear persuasive and
charming - it's part of the plan if wealth is the name
of the game! Although they are hoarders, Rats can be
very generous to those in their "pack," namely
friends and family members who have proven their
loyalty. Others, however, can perceive them as
quick-tempered and sharp-tongued, but never boorish.
would be no fun! Verbal jousting is a pleasure for the
Rat, a creature which everyone around will quickly learn
to love or hate. Rats enjoy being on the outside looking
in, the better to learn a thing or two. New challenges
are also welcomed by the ever-curious Rat as a way to
stay sharp. Without this, a case of the blahs could set
in which would make this mouse no fun. This quest for
adventure has many positives, among them an ability to
keep this keen strategist in fighting trim. Anything
less would be a waste of some very precious skills. A
valuable lesson for Rats would be to learn to consider
others above themselves. If they can develop their sense
of self and realize it leaves room for others in their
life, Rats could find true happiness. The most
compatible match for a rat is the dragon or monkey.
The Thrifty Rat/Mouse - The
"Covert Charmer" -
keys for this year are: Ďfocus on what is
importantí, Ďfinancial prudenceí and Ďstay
positiveí. All year, work, career and money will be on
your mind. You will be empowered to make decisions and
go forward, but weigh everything up carefully first.
This is not a time in which to make huge investments,
whether on the money markets or in other peopleís
businesses. The summer is well opened for romance and
surprise holidays. Existing relationships can be
cemented firmer during this time, and new ones will
respond positively to your loving charm. Once the autumn
comes most Rats will be able to increase their incomes,
gain promotion or tidy up their finances with great
effect. Be patient with family members, as their behavior
will be affected by their own troubles. Many Rats will
successfully move property before the winterís end.
Ox people in general are -
patient, hard working, observant, intelligent having a
strong memory but stubborn & dogmatic.
They are very family oriented and faithful.
On compatibility table they rank well with Rat, Snake,
Monkey & Rooster.They do not see eye to eye with
Characteristics - OX
bull in a china shop? Not the Ox! Although steadfast and
solid, the Ox is no mere pasture cow. This powerful
creature is a born leader, dependable and with an innate
ability to achieve great things. Even so, Oxen tend to
be plodding and methodical -- they approach projects in
a step-by-step manner and never lose sight of their
goal. They are also tireless workers, detail-oriented
and believe in doing things right or not at all. The
world may perceive Oxen as far too serious and incapable
of loosening up. This is because these sturdy sorts are
less than social by nature and tend to become
introverted in a crowd. To make things worse, they can't
be bothered with what other people think and prefer to
do what makes them feel best. Behind that calm facade,
though, lives an Ox who can be hurt, lonely and unable
to connect with others.
and family are a great source of comfort to this beast,
even if they don't always understand what makes the Ox
tick. Stubborn and dogmatic, Oxen tend to be
my-way-or-the-highway kind of folk who have no concept
of when to back down. If the masses keep pushing, well,
the Earth may tremble! Suffice it to say that Oxen don't
care to be pushed, especially since they think they're
the good guys of the Chinese Zodiac. There is some truth
to that theory, since the Ox is smart, trustworthy,
caring and honorable. If you need honest, steady and
unbiased advice, call the Ox. A good lesson for mighty
Oxen is to strive to overcome a judgmental nature which
keeps them from getting close to others. If they can
learn to value their own good qualities, they'll have
more room in their hearts to bring others in. The most
compatible match for an ox is the snake or rooster.
The Enduring Ox - Commanding
for this year are: communication, prosperity, progress
and romance. The Snake Year is fortunate for Oxen. Be
open to new things and experiences. This is the year to
draw closer to your special people, and get creative
with your life. Work to create the existence you want.
Youíll be surprised at how much you can achieve. The
spring and summer offer social fun to all Oxen and fires
of romance to the single. In late summer or autumn be
careful not to let a misunderstanding between you and a
loved one, friend or colleague, grow into a rift. Keep
the channels of communication open, offer to compromise
and express yourself clearly. All year there will be
opportunities to advance at work, either by educating
yourself or seeking promotion. There will also be
chances to make extra money.
Tiger people are characterized
by their tendency to lead and their courage. They are
confident and charismatic with a natural air of
Tigers like to work, but work best when alone. They are
always in a hurry to finish things.
Tiger people are also passionate and romantic.
They get on well with people born in years of Horse
& Dog. However a tiger - goat or a tiger - Ox
combination is not recommended at all.
Characteristics - Tiger
may not be the king of the jungle, but these striped
cats are no patsies! Magnetic and self-possessed, Tigers
are born leaders. They have an air of authority which
prompts others to fall in line, which is exactly how
they like it. Even so, they can adopt the pose of a lone
wolf, preferring to stalk their "prey" on
their own. This cat can be wound up pretty tight! As a
result, time is of the essence to Tigers, the better to
get ahead and stay there. Courageous beyond compare,
Tigers generally come out ahead in battle, be it in the
boardroom or the bedroom. Speaking of the boudoir, this
is one area where the Tiger is definitely king! Noble
and warm-hearted, Tigers tend to have a raw appeal which
is extremely attractive to the opposite sex. Ever on the
side of right, Tigers will fight the good fight of the
bitter end if the cause is worthy.
are wise to fear a feline which can smell victory a mile
away. A bit of caution is a good thing around Tigers,
since they can pounce without warning. They experience
mood swings and often feel things more intensely than
others, that latter quality being both good and bad. As
well, they can react poorly under stress and are prone
to emotional outbursts. It's the bristling sensitivity
of this sleek cat which can cause friend and foe to run
for cover. A lesson which Tigers would be well-served to
learn is "moderation in all things." Once
these cats can find their center and direct their
considerable energies toward worthwhile endeavors (as
opposed to racing through life), they will accomplish
much. The most compatible match for a tiger is the horse
The Regal Tiger - Ambitious
keys for this year are: caution, discretion, prudence
and spirituality. The Snake Year can be good for Tigers,
as long as they remain cautious and try not involve in
the affairs and problems of others. Concentrate on your
own path. Work hard and your progress will be steady
whether youíre in business, on the career ladder, in
the arts or raising a family. Spring is a time to tie up
loose ends and reorganise everything from finances to
the garden shed. Clear out that clutter. Summer will
feature decisions about educational or career direction.
For best results follow your intuition and your passion.
Late summer and autumn could be tense emotionally, with
parents or partners. See things as they are and work
with the materials you have to hand. It wonít go very
well if you endeavour to change anyone.
Usually kind and sweet, Rabbit
people are not only popular but also make a very
interesting company. They are well known for their
artistic sense and good taste.
Rabbit people are also calm. They argue rarely and are
sentimental and compassionate.
Rabbits are well compatible with people born in years of
Dragon(!!), Pig and Goat. Rabbits and Rats are not
Characteristics - Rabbit
Rabbits of the Chinese Zodiac tend to act more like
bunnies, whether they like it or not! Timid and
attractive, the Rabbit is the kind of furry ball you
want to smother with love. As a result, they're
extremely popular and have a wide circle of family and
friends. Their compassionate nature also leads them to
be very protective of those they love. Where romance is
concerned, their sentimentality is the reason why they
idealize relationships, a quality which compels them to
give more than they realistically should. The Rabbit
thinks this is just fine. When they do bite off more
than they can chew, their core group of friends, coupled
with a stable home life, help bring them back to center.
Rabbits are very delicate creatures and need a solid
base in order to survive and thrive. Absent this,
they'll break down in tears at the first sign of
conflict and can even veer toward illness.
it to say that Rabbits dislike arguments and will try
like the dickens to avoid a fight. They can also lapse
into pessimism and appear stuck in place - often to mask
their insecure natures. This isn't likely to compel them
to change their stripes, though, since Rabbits like to
hop along at their own pace and think things through.
Happiness for Rabbits is the chance to entertain in
their tastefully-furnished homes. Appearances do count
for these furry folk, one reason why they always look
better than the rest. Did they spend a pretty penny to
get there? You bet. What Rabbits need most, however, is
a greater sense of self-worth and the security that
comes with it. Their discerning natures, coupled with
some hard-won assertiveness, will help these happy
creatures go far. The most compatible match for a rabbit
is the goat or pig.
The Sensitive Rabbit/Cat -
Discrete Mediator -
keys for the Snake year are: consolidation, financial
prudence, realism and problem solving. If you remain
happy with your life and refrain from seeking grand
change, you will stay serene this year. Just work hard
and accept the challenges it brings stoically. Youíll
experience moments of doubt, but stay cool and
thereíll be nothing you canít handle. Late spring
and summer will find you solving multiple hassles. Work
solidly and prioritise for best effect. A summer romance
will inspire the single. During the autumn resolve to
make time for your loved ones. Some Hares will change
home, job or career. This is good but expect challenges
on the road. These transformations are all about
creating security or bettering your position. The Earth
energies are there to support you. Make time for
romantic outings and trips, whether youíre single or
Dragon people are supposed to
be born leaders and masters of ceremonies. They are also
gifted with tremendous luck.
Aggressive and persistent, dragon people tend to
fiercely pursue what they desire to get. They are easily
irritable and pretty stubborn as well.
On the positive side, dragons are gifted, generous and
intelligent. On the negative side, they tend to get
Dragon people are compatible with people born in years
of Rat, Rabbit, Monkey and Pig. A dragon combines very
badly with a fellow dragon though.
Characteristics - Dragon
this Dragon? Never. The Dragon is one of the most
powerful signs in the Chinese Zodiac. Lucky as well,
Dragons are giving, intelligent and tenacious, know
exactly what they want and are determined to get it.
Further, they can easily influence their peers and often
find themselves the center of attention in social
situations. As if all this wasn't enough, Lady Love is
the Dragon's best friend! The rest of the Dragon's
friends are always keen to hear what this firebrand has
to say, and when it comes to dispensing advice, the
Dragon has the floor. It's ego that can get in the
Dragon's way, but even so, this larger-than-life
creature has a knack for initiating projects and keeping
the troops motivated. According to Dragons, it's their
natural born right to lead the way! As luck would have
it, Dragons are likely to achieve considerable material
wealth during their lifetime, although they aren't
motivated by pursuit of the almighty dollar.
they stick to their guns, even when they're firing
blanks. That said, Dragons are quite the opportunists,
forever searching for ways in which to consolidate their
considerable power. And power it must be, for a weakened
Dragon is a sad sack, a creature which flails about and
refuses to take defeat with even a modicum of grace.
Question authority? That's our Dragon! The role of
leader is the only one the Dragon wants, the better to
give orders and be king of the hill. They are good
leaders, too, knowing instinctively what needs to be
done to stay on top. Crossing the Dragon is never a good
idea -- this beast can singe! A valuable life lesson for
this clever creature would be to absorb the principles
of flexibility, compassion and tolerance. Being high and
mighty can serve to inspire others, but it also keeps
Dragons from living their life to the fullest. If
Dragons can learn to balance their quest for success
with an appreciation for the little things, their life
will be more than worthwhile. The most compatible match
for a dragon is a monkey or rat.
The Magic Dragon - Enchanting
prime keys for this year are: attention to detail,
affection, career progress and activating plans. The
Snake Year is definitely a go for it time for Dragons.
If youíre planning to step up the career ladder, start
or expand a business, move home, study or stimulate your
spirituality, it is the year for you. Both the Earth
energies and Celestial energies are there to support
your progress and strategies. Spring is the time to
start new projects of any sort. Then, youíll know
where you are by the summer. Whatever youíre up to,
you will meet cynicism and opposition, but theyíre no
problem for a Dragon once he or she is on a mission. All
year, be careful not to neglect your special people, no
matter how busy you are. All personal relationships will
need some attention.
Horse people are known for
their sex appeal, sartorial sense and high energy
Horse people are good workers.They are sweet natured,
tolerant but carry an air of pride about themselves.
On negative side, they are hot headed and sometimes
Horse people get on best with Dogs followed by Tiger and
Goat.They are not compatible with Rats and Monkeys.
Characteristics - Horse
goodness for open spaces, because the Horse needs plenty
of room to roam! Energetic, good with money and fond of
travel, Horses are the nomads of the Chinese Zodiac,
roaming from one place or project to the next. Good
thing they know how to work a budget! All of this
searching on the part of the Horse may be to satisfy a
deep-rooted desire to fit in. Even so, these
dual-natured souls often find themselves balancing this
desire with a yearning for independence and freedom.
Horses also crave love and intimacy, a double-edged
sword since it often leads them to feel trapped. And
hey, this colt needs room! That said, love connections
come easily to Horses, since they exude the kind of raw
sex appeal which is a magnet to the opposite sex. Check
out any A-list party and you're bound to find the Horse
in attendance. Although they're not very cerebral,
Horses more than make up for it with a sharp wit and a
scintillating presence. Surprisingly, Horses tend to
feel a bit inferior to their peers, a quality which
causes them to drift from group to group out of an
irrational fear of being exposed as a fraud.
impatient streak can lead Horses to be less than
sensitive to others' needs. These colts would rather
take a situation firmly in hand as opposed to waiting
for others to weigh in. The lone wolf in them can at
times push others away, but this also makes them
stronger and is a key to their success. Horses are
self-reliant to the core and are willing to do the work
necessary to get ahead. Although they're not inclined to
look at the big picture, Horses have a keen sense of
what needs to be done. They are great motivators and get
a lot accomplished. Once they find some peace within
themselves, they may curb their wandering tendencies and
learn to appreciate what's in their own backyard. The
most compatible match for a horse is the dog or tiger.
The Wild Horse - Passionate and
keys for the year are: tact, perseverance, problems,
love and romance. Rest well because youíll need all
your energies to deal with the demands of the Snake
Year. Itíll busy from the word go, involved and
complicated, with diverse calls on your time, energy and
mind. Yeah, that means stress, but work against it.
Stress is your reaction, it does not radiate from the
events occurring around you. During spring itíll seem
as if even your closest people are seeking to hinder
you. Your efforts at work, in study and around the
family will maintain your security and position. Gains
will be in the form of knowledge, experience and wisdom.
The summer and autumn will be easier, with plenty of fun
to be had. Expect winter romantic highlights. If
youíre single, someone new will float along late
summer or after Halloween.
Monkeys are fun loving,
cheerful and energetic. They are pretty clever as well.
They are talented, creative and generous.
On negative side, they are also said to be self centered
Monkeys get on well with most signs. The best
combinations are with Tiger and Pig people.
Characteristics - Monkey
spunky Monkey is one heck of a party animal! Charming
and energetic, Monkeys crave fun, activity and a mighty
good time. They can often be seen swinging from one
group of friends to another, attracting a motley crew in
the process. Forever upbeat, they are considered minor
celebrities in their circle, thanks to their sparkling
wit and a quick mind. They are also good listeners and
tackle complicated situations with ease. The natural
curiosity which Monkeys possess leads them to become
knowledgeable on a broad range of topics. The showoff in
them loves nothing more than to dazzle their pals with
all they know. The flip side of all this is that
rebellious Monkeys don't always have a firm grasp on
right and wrong. Their own happiness is their primary
goal, and let the chips fall where they may. This
approach will work some of the time, thanks to the
Monkey's glib manner and witty repartee. It's not likely
that everyone will be won over by the Monkey, though but
do you think the Monkey really cares? Be it idle gossip
or brazen infidelity, the Monkey's world isn't for
said, it's not that they're ogres they may just be a bit
too curious for their own good, feeling a need to try
everything once. This can make for a merry-go-round of
relationships. The sense of fun which is second-nature
to Monkeys can get them in all sorts of trouble. This
self-indulgent ball of fire has limited self-control
where food, alcohol and other pleasurable activities are
concerned. It's party time all the time for the Monkey,
yet when it leads to a monster hangover or a shattered
heart (someone else's, not theirs), they might actually
show a touch of remorse. They won't flat-out admit the
error of their ways, but at least they won't lay an even
bigger egg. Monkeys would be well-served to think of
others ahead of themselves, at least some of the time.
If they realized the world didn't revolve around them,
their world would be more complete. Go for it, Monkey!
The most compatible match for a monkey is the rat or
The Cheeky Monkey - Engaging
keys for this year are: recognition, diplomacy, tact and
fun times. The Snake Year will offer laughter with
friends and family. Itís a time of inner development:
excellent if youíre seeking to grow psychically,
spiritually, educationally or creatively. At work and in
business, especially if youíre trying to promote
yourself, your ideas or your business, youíll get the
support you need. Donít be afraid to ask! Spring and
summer is positive for career climbing Monkeys and those
wishing to move home or renovate their dwelling.
Inspiring Celestial energies suggest that whatever your
aims, you get creative. Autumn and winter could bring
some decisions and differences of opinions with loved
ones. For best results remain tactful and compromise.
Patience is a virtue worth pursuing, as itís at the
yearís end that a lot of things will fall into place.
Dog people are the most dutiful
of the lot.They are extremely loyal to whom they serve
and dislike any dishonesty on the part of co-workers
towards their masters.
On negative side, they are not good at socializing and
also tend to get digressed by small things.
They get on very well with Horse and Tiger.They are not
very compatible with Goat and Monkey people.
Characteristics - Dog
the Dog man's best friend? Well, maybe. Loyal, faithful
and honest, the Dog has a firm code of ethics to live by
and can be counted on in times of need. Ever
trustworthy, this pup is also wonderfully discreet,
listening closely while guarding a friend's problems
without a ever thinking of being a gossip. Anything less
would be unimaginable to Dogs, possessed as they are of
a keen sense of right and wrong and duty-bound to the
core. This is the Dog's mantra: Live right, look out for
the underdog and fight injustice wherever possible. Bear
in mind, though, that if you get a Dog started on what's
important to them, they can go on forever. Dogs aren't
much for social chit-chat, preferring to get to the
heart of the matter. They can also be temperamental and
moody, which makes it hard to know if the Dog that shows
up will lick your leg or bite it off. Dogs can even be
downright nasty if they feel their livelihood is at
risk, worrywarts that they are. These sensitive pups
need to warm up to others over time and gradually learn
to trust them. Absent that trust, they can be judgmental
Dogs have little room for flighty or flaky behavior,
treating these "lost" souls in a critical,
almost harsh manner. The flip side of the Dog's
discerning nature is that they are excellent business
people who can turn their pickiness into an asset for
the masses. Where love is concerned, Dogs often have a
tough time finding the right match. These Feckless Fidos
can be so anxious and overwrought in the romance dance
that they'll stress their partner to the max! Dogs need
to work on these irrational fears and are also
well-served to relax their mile-high standards, which
can only wind up alienating the ones they love. The most
compatible match for a dog is the tiger or horse.
Attentive Dog - Champion Protector -
keys for this year are: hard work, respect, recognition,
advice and family life. Yeah, this will be a hard
working year, if youíre wise. You will reap the
rewards from your efforts, whatever field youíre
striving in. Thereís also some very supportive Earth
energies of youíre searching for a partner, getting
married or starting a family. All kinds of togetherness
are favoured. So, plan a good family or romantic
holiday, and when the autumn and winter comes, relax a
little and spend some extra quality time with the people
you love. Spring and summer are excellent for new
ventures, whether theyíre community or family based,
or revolve around business and income generation. All
year, some useful advice will come your way, often from
unexpected sources. Donít be stubborn, listen and take
on board the information thatís given to you.
Pigs are known for their
sincerity, purity and tolerance. They like to give,
yield and serve. They are also an excellent companion.
On the negative side, Pigs tend to be slow and somewhat
A Pig rhymes very well with a fellow pig and the goat.
They also make good combination with Rabbits & Rats.
Pigs are the most compatible with all other signs.
Characteristics - Pig
thing's for sure about Pigs -- they're always in the
pink! Generous and honorable, they are nice to a fault
and possessed of impeccable manners and taste. The
porcine ones have so much of the perfectionist in them
that others may be inclined to perceive them as snobs.
Not the case! Pigs believe in the best in mankind and
certainly don't consider themselves superior. They also
care a great deal about friends and family and work hard
to keep everyone in their life happy. Helping others is
a true pleasure for the Pig, a happy sort that feels
best when everyone else is smiling. A truly sad sight is
a Pig with no one around to appreciate their giving
nature. Pigs are so magnanimous they can appear almost
saintly. This can lead some less-than-well-intentioned
souls to stomp all over the Pig and the Pig will take
the blows! The Pig refuses to see others as less than
good, an endearing quality which makes them great
companions. The happy Pig might actually scowl if
someone tries to tell them that their approach is all
wet. Hey, it works for them! Suffice it to say Pigs
aren't keen on unsolicited advice, preferring to fight
their own fights when need be.
can stay out of their way, Pigs can be the most loyal
and devoted friends on Earth. Beyond their sparkling
reputations, Pigs are highly intelligent creatures. They
are forever studying, playing and probing in their quest
for greater knowledge. They also adore food and drink,
easily making them the gourmands of the Chinese Zodiac!
Nothing but champagne and caviar for the discerning Pig.
These porcine pals also make wonderful life partners,
since they truly do have a heart of gold. Even so, Pigs
can be exceedingly exclusive, spending time with those
who will appreciate them most while ignoring the rest of
the populace. Pigs need to realize that there's more to
life than being needed. When they open up their world to
a diverse group of people, they will truly bloom. The
most compatible match for a pig is the rabbit or goat.
The Magnanimous Pig - Generous
keys for this year are: care with relationships,
financial prudence, travel and self exploration. You
will make some useful breakthroughs this year,
especially if youíre studying, researching, or into
spirituality, community regeneration or politics. A lot
of Pigs will invest in property or start a business. The
more art focused porkers will be inspired to take a
fresh creative path and spiritually orientated Pigs will
refocus their belief systems. You could be feeling
unsettled emotionally spring and summer. Stay on track,
compromise and donít make sudden changes. The omens
for holidays and daytrips are splendid, so take
advantage! Autumn and winter, minor hassles and love
relationship hitches could threaten to get you down.
Stay positive and resolve without conflict. There could
be a new love for adventurous single Pigs. All year,
avoid overspending and youíll keep your stress levels
People born in the year of goat
are creative, charming, elegant and quite popular.
On negative side, they tend to get insecure, pessimistic
They are compatible with Pig, Rabbit and Horse. However
they make a very poor combination with Tiger though.
Characteristics - Sheep
dreaming? Sounds about right to the Goat. These creative
creatures love the esoteric and are most at home in
their own minds. Unorthodox religions and new age play
are also right up their alley. Even so, Goats are very
capable and revel in the opportunity to think outside of
the box. Don't expect much organization here, though, a
quality which tends to preclude many business endeavors
for this dreamy sort. Think craftsperson or artisan when
looking at the Goat, and don't overlook their
considerable charm, which often carries the day. It may
be their artistic temperament which often causes Goats
to feel insecure. These high-strung creatures need to
feel loved and admired lest they start worrying
incessantly. This sensitive streak can also lead to
bouts of anxiety over seemingly inconsequential things.
It's this angst which can wreak havoc on the Goat's love
life. The mere thought of another failed romance can
send the Goat to the sidelines for good, leaving this
one-time lover a lonely heart. Why these woes? Goats are
determined to avoid conflict at all costs, even if the
price is relationship bliss.
game of love is going well, however, Goats won't
hesitate to tell their partner what they need - and they
can be quite insistent about it! Guess we know who's on
top here. That said, Goats don't mind if their partner's
in charge every now and again, the better to indulge
their lazy, hazy side. Appearances are also important to
the Goat, which may explain why these folks can spend
hours primping and posing. Goats would be well-served to
learn to relax and let others run the show from time to
time. Once they realize that their friends and lovers
won't go away if they choose to take it easy and feed
their muse, life will be a field of daisies. Graze away,
little Goat! The most compatible match for a goat is the
pig or rabbit.
The Confident Goat - Artistic
for the Snake Year are: contacts, success, career,
social fun and love. The Snake Year gives you the chance
to go full steam ahead to make the career, business or
study life you want. If your progress has been flat or
backwards, youíll be able to re-establish yourself.
Get going and make the most of it! Whatever youíre up
to, whether opening a tea shop or organising a holiday,
utilise your contacts during the spring and summer.
Youíll get the help you need. Journeys are favoured,
as are any efforts you make to create extra income.
Autumn and winter, minor hassles will come from family
members and friends. Youíll have to deal with their
demands as well as your own needs. All year, promote
yourself, your art or your ideals and beliefs. Expect
relationship evolution and romance.
The Rooster people are known
for their accuracy and observation power. They like to
be noticed and flattered. For that reason, they may even
dress more flashily than other animal signs.
Roosters like to dream and often get disappointment for
the reality rarely matches the dreams. On the Positive
side, they are sharp, practical and quite resourceful.
Rooster gets on very well with Ox and Pig. They rhyme
very poorly with a fellow rooster.
Characteristics - Rooster
be told, the Rooster is the strutting peacock of the
Chinese Zodiac! These quick thinkers are also practical
and resourceful, preferring to stick to what is tried
and true. They are also keenly observant. It's unlikely
you'll slip anything past Roosters, since they seem to
have eyes in the back of their head! This quality often
leads others to think the Rooster is psychic. What the
Rooster would prefer to be known as is a straightforward
sort, one who will reward honesty in kind. Roosters
aren't shifty or cagey and have no interest in hiding
behind a facade. They are quite the open book, telling
the truth and keeping their word. In their world, if you
show your hand, people will respect that. This kind of
trusting behavior can tempt tricksters to pull a fast
one on the Rooster. Bad move! Remember, this bird
doesn't indulge in flights of fancy and keeps those eyes
wide open at all times. These plucky birds tend to be
perfectionists and like to be in control, especially
over their appearance. Primping and posing for the
Rooster can go on forever! Yep, never an unruffled
noticed and admired is an aphrodisiac for Roosters, and
they can go a long time on a few kind words. Roosters
also adore being out on the town, especially if they're
in the company of adoring friends. No quiet dinners at
home for the Rooster - the real fun is in dancing till
dawn with a gaggle of pals. To top it all off, the
Rooster will be the best-dressed in the group! Style
counts with this bird, regardless of cost. Looking good
may have its price, but at the end of the day, Roosters
love a bargain, something which appeals to their basic
conservatism. The flip side of this is the Rooster's
willingness to think big and daydream where affairs of
the heart are concerned. Roosters can create one heck of
a fantasy, only to have reality come crashing down on
it. In the right relationship, however, the Rooster is
one of the most loyal and trustworthy mates around,
bending over backwards to please their partner. Roosters
need to learn to value their heart and soul as much as
their good looks. Their excellent people skills and
sharp minds are qualities which others will appreciate
as much as a pretty face. The most compatible match for
a rooster is the ox or snake.
Astute Rooster - Courageous Enthusiast -
keys for the next twelve months are: good fortune,
progress, prudence when traveling and discretion.
Youíll be able to maintain your position, although
youíll have to work hard in the summer. During spring
certain important relationships will need tactful
handling. If you want a romance or friendship to grow,
be patient and respectful. Summer will bring a few extra
expenses, but one of them is likely to be a good
holiday. Late summer onwards, ignore and refuse to
respond to criticism, gossip and rumours. Keep your head
down and focus on your priorities. This is the time to
reconnect to your spiritual path and any education
youíve put to one side. Your mind will grow! You
wonít get rich in the Year of the Snake, but with
cautious financial handling youíll be able to maintain
your standard of living.
People born under the sign of
snake are dynamic, aggressive and very adaptable in
nature. They are wise philosophers and have an element of
stealth about their personality.
Snake people have flawless skin besides being physically
Characteristics - Snake
Snake, quite simply, leads a charmed life! Diplomatic
and popular, the serpentine ones are lucky with money
and will generally have more than they need. Even if
money isn't their greatest pursuit, they will always
have more than enough to survive. The charming and
generous qualities ascribed to Snakes will allow them to
attract many potential mates. No snake eyes here! Quite
the opposite, since the seductive Snake has many fans.
It's that they're so darned irresistible - slightly
dangerous and disarmingly smart. They're also one of the
more philosophical signs. That dreamlike quality means
that logic doesn't always weigh into their thought
process, preferring as they do to use feelings and
instinct when making decisions. Snakes give little
credence to the opinions of others, relying instead on
their own gut and intuition. Despite their natural
physical ability and lively personalities, Snakes have a
tendency to be insecure, something which can manifest
itself as jealousy and possessiveness.
behavior often ends up alienating the ones they love,
when a bit of vulnerability would have yielded better
results. Snakes can be tight with a buck, yet they'll
find a way to come through for friends and family, if
only to secure their love. The slippery Snake is also
prone to exaggeration, however these tall tales are told
for the sake of comfort level, especially in social
situations. Snakes simply cannot bear to be the odd man
out, and will fight to the bitter end to win back those
who have abandoned them. Snakes can be so unsure of
themselves that perceived slights are capable of
escalating into full-on range wars! Further, they'll do
whatever it takes to be the center of attention.
Slithery as they are, they can work both sides of the
fence (showboat or shrinking violet) with aplomb. Snakes
also detest those with no follow-through or an inability
to get things done. They know how to get on with the
program themselves and want the same from others. An
important lesson for Snakes is humility, along with a
sense of self. That tendency to exaggerate, along with a
need to do it all, can get pretty old. Once Snakes
realize that confidence comes from within, they'll
finally be comfortable in their own skin. The most
compatible match for a snake is the rooster or ox.
The Instinctual Snake - Shrewd
keys for this year are: moderation, caution, patience,
calmness and stability. Donít expect to make immense
headway or vast wealth just because itís your year.
Progress in all life spheres will be good but probably
not as stellar as you may have hoped. Be patient and
refuse to make sudden changes, whatever the temptation.
Youíll be best to stick to accustomed pathways and
roads. Late spring and summer will bring arguments and
misunderstandings. Keep a cool head, especially if the
hassles are revolving around your love life. Watch your
words and be tactful. In the autumn be careful and make
sure you understand contracts, job offers and business
deals. Fight off stress and youíll be able to maintain
your position and make steady progress. This is a fine
year for creative, art working and spiritual Snakes.
