Chinese Astrology for November 2016

When the earth-pig meets the fire-monkey

Although the weather may not be accordingly the season we are now entering what is called ‘beginning of winter’. The month that starts this part of the year is ruled by the earth-pig, that takes office on 06 November 2016, 23:47h GMT. Let’s see what we might be up to when pig and monkey join forces.

Whenever we have anything to do with the sign of the zodiac that is known as ‘pig’ we are lucky to find an amiable, sweet-tempered, peace-loving, helpful, tolerant, honest and trustworthy creature. This is how we can describe the positive side of this month’s ruler. We are likely to also see and feel distinct optimism in any situation of life and we can quite often enjoy a wonderful generosity. Preferably standing on the bright side of life the pig is absolutely not resistant to all forms of fun and pleasure. We may even find him indulging in ostentatious lifestyles.
The pig is a straightforward being that speaks his mi
nd clearly and unmistakably and it drives him mad whenever he has to face fraud and devoutness.
Whatever the pig has learnt, to say ‘no’ was not among the various subjects. Sometimes this can lead to awkward situations that can have a negative effect on the pig’s mood, the pig’s bank account and/or the pig’s physical appearance. Offering criticism on the morning after the night before will definitely drive all members of that sign mad.

The earth-pig in particular has a very kind nature, is sensible and has a realistic view on life. He is quite ambitious when it comes to reaching his goals. His way of proceeding is always excellently planned and organised, his knowledge and experience make him astute in business and financial matters.
His social life is a very active one and those around the earth-pig can enjoy his great sense of humour.
He knows that good drinks go with good food. Or vice verse. He does appreciate that so much that he can get easily get carried away eating and/or drinking.

Although the never-resting monkey will come up with new opportunities suddenly and unexpectedly we are well advised not to rush things. It is necessary in this new month to think things over and go one step at a time.
There is a need for creative ways of thinking that will lead to new opportunities and experiences. There are many contributions we can make. It does not pay to be the lone wolf this month. If we come together and combine our efforts we can be proactive, can make our presence felt and can create new, lucrative ventures. It will serve us well when we remember that diligence is still a valuable treasure.
What has to done has to be done in time, delays can cause unnecessary disadvantages.

Let us take a look at the various signs of the zodiac to find out what they should take into consideration:

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Knowing that birds of a feather flock together helps to benefit greatly from this month. Especially when you take special care of your own family. Good fortune is foreseen in family affairs and business endeavours.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
This is a month for planning, not for achieving. Use the time wisely to rest, to regain strength and to power up your own energy. Simply prepare yourself for the next month when you can put your plans into action.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
This will be a busy month for you, both at home and in business. More than the usual workload has to be dealt with. But this can be very motivating and stimulating. New contacts can lead to beneficial new opportunities.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
Joined by the pig, tiger’s best friend, this month has a lot of goodies in store. Expect good business, happiness, good luck and contentment. Time to enjoy the finer things in life. But do not go over the top by overspending or overextending.

(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
Expect a favourable month now that one of your allies is close to you. Enjoy the good things in life, emotional security, and social contentment. Keep your feet on the ground and do not reach for the stars that are too far away.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
After last month’s challenges life becomes more stable. Work tends to be mundane, slow, or even a bit frustrating, so take the opportunity to light entertainment and amusing recreation. Be very cautious in financial matters. Overspending will cost you dearly.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001):
Things may not work out as planned, achievements will stay within limits. Play it cool and try not to force things. Your natural opponent, the pig, keeps you on a short leash. Continue planning and wait for the next month to act on your plans.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
There might be some unfavourable circumstances. Difficulties at work and misunderstandings can delay success. Spend money wisely, it is not the right time to spend it on luxuries.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003):
The good times are back, a very beneficial month lies ahead. Good fortune is foreseen in all areas of private life and business life. Be bold, be daring, you have everything to gain.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004):
Enjoy the improvements you can make this month. Even if your plans may be thwarted or delayed business advancements, travels or even a change of residence are in stock for you.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005):
There may be additional work for you, challenging responsibilities or minor setbacks in your career. Deal with all matters mind fully and do, what has to be done. But not more. It pays to be considerate, realistic and not innovative.

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006):
Expect a peaceful and calm month. Focus more on your family than on your business affairs. New acquaintances and an extended circle of friends can lead to new opportunities and to new ventures.

Here they are, the days we should leave out. Somehow. When it comes to short-ranged projects they should not be started on 07 November 2016, not on 19 November 2016, and not on 01 December 2016. Regarding long-ranged projects we have to step back on 16 November 2016 and not on 28 November 2016.

Again there are another two days that are void of supporting energy. They are good enough to survive but not good enough to do anything of significance: 10 November 2016 and 12 November 2016.

May we all be well rewarded for our perseverance and persistence.

(*) for this kind of analysis we work with the solar calender. With a satisfying accuracy we can say that all years start on 04 February. This means that e.g. a person born on 31 January 1983 is born in the year of the dog as the year of the pig starts on 04 February 1983.

In consultations I certainly work with the exact dates and times.
