Happy Chinese New Year 2018

The past year showed as what a fire-rooster can be up to. Now time has come to say ‘good bye’ and to welcome the ruler of the new year.

On 16th February 2018, 21:28h GMT, the earth-dog takes over to rule over time and space.

Looking at the personality of the dog gives us an impression of what the new year will be like: reserved, persuasive, prudent, faithful, responsible, considerate, straight forward, creative, cynical, and occasionally obstinate. We really may be looking forward to experiencing this very interesting mixture that will show us the human skills of this pack animal.

 

Those who know what it is like to live in a close companionship know what encourages a peaceful life and what leads to unneccessary friction among the members of that group. Ideally everyone knows his or her place in that community and when time has come to bring about changes he or she will step forward and take action. Nobody else will be sent forward, no hiding behind somebody’s back. For some people stepping forward can be quite a challenge because they may not be clear about what they really want or need or may not be able to be true to themselves. But this year will bring relief, the dog will lead the way.

There may be occasions when the leader of a pack is challenged to resign his position. If the self-appointed successor is able to prove even against resistance that he is much better suited for the position the former leader will make place and will settle down at his new position.

During the whole process it is absolutely clear what is going on. No scheming, no covering up, no smoke screens, no secret alliances. It looks as if the pack on four paws can handle those situations much better than the herd on two legs. Why not take our cue from that?!
The earth-dog in particular is a talented and astute creature working always methodically and efficiently. He is kind and generous offering a helping hand whenever one is needed.

Being rather quiet he does not make a fuss about his own affairs. With his persuasive manner he usually secures his objectives without too much opposition.

This year we should allow us to spend more time with and for ourselves, enjoying our interests, enjoying everything we have achieved so far. We should be sharing that with those we love and those we like. Doing that we give hope and strength to carry on to those who need that.

We can see the dog as symbol for intelligence and protection. People who feel socially discriminated will probably demand radical changes to their life conditions and they might even be ready to fight for their rights, for a life worth living, for now and for the future.

Relationships and success in business get new qualities depending on the way we communicate with each other. We will soon find out that being generous and unselfish gives us what we can really gain from. Improving healthcare and public health, welfare, caring for others, social skills, education and training are issues the dog wants us to deal with. Empathy and social justice are the only things that count when the earth-dog rules over us.

The earth-dog provides us with the element of earth in its Yang form, not just a hill or a single mountain, rather a mountain range or generally speaking all the ‘earth’ we can set foot on. So this year should become a year in which we pay back the favours we received when exploiting natural resources. Hopefully those in charge in politics and industry feel encouraged to reduce pollution, to initiate reafforestation and go deeper into research and implementation of renewable energies.

 

Now let’s see what the year of the earth-dog may bring to the various signs of the zodiac:

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018):
Birds of a feather flock together. This gives strength and courage to take matters even further. A successful year is waiting for you. Taking proper action lets even a delicate little plant become a big tree.
The dragon-month, 04 April 2018 – 05 May 2018, will be a tough test for your patience. The ‘rabbit’ can show you how to dodge and turn corners.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
This year will be stable and unwinding. There will be no considerable ups and there will be no downs worth mentioning. Becoming modest can get you far further than you think.

Do not expect much from the month of the snake, 05 May 2018 – 05 June 2018. It helps to be in the company of a ‘tiger’.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Although horses are definitely more exhausting than dogs things may not run as smoothly as you wish. If you throw in the towel, will there be one left to get you dry after having taken a shower? Calculated optimism is what gets you through the year.
The month of the horse, 05 June 2018 – 07 July 2018, should not be used for far reaching decisions or to settle financial matters. The ‘ox’ is always a good companion.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
This year many people seem to be dressed up for mayhem and madness. Remaining patient it is you who can manage to bring things into the right order. As soon as one matter is settled the next one may come up. Keep calm and carry on.
The month of the goat, 07 July 2018 – 07 August 2018, should be used to relax, important activities won’t bear fruit. Ox is advised to seek the company of ‘rats’.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
How relaxing it can be to meet an ally. Your status improves, things run smoother than they did last year. Be mindful what you spend your money on or who you support.
A special challenge will be the month of the monkey, 07 August 2018 – 07 September 2018. Do what you know best and gather momentum for the rest of the year. A ‘pig’ should be your favoured friend and helper.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
Expect a pleasant year. Your good friend, the dog, takes good care of you so that you can recover completely from the difficulties you were facing recently. Your career requires more attention. Your preferred method of choice should be diplomacy.
The time between 07 September 2018 and 08 October 2018, the month of the rooster, demands withdrawal in all fields. A ‘dog’ is a trustworthy friend at all times.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
You should get ready for a year that can be a little uncomfortable. “Forward march! Beat retreat!” can be the best thing to do in times when your arch-rival is in command, which actually is the whole year. Be careful who you place your trust in.
In the month of the dog, 08 October 2018 – 07 November 2018, you might encounter even more challenging obstacles. If possible avoid disputes at all costs, at least keep them to an absolute minimum. Remain true to yourself and concentrate on your strength. If you need assistance ask the ‘rooster’.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
It is not always opportune to express ones personal point of view. ‘I do not express what I think but what I say is what I think’ gets you furthest this year. It is the right time for new endeavours as opportunities for advancement come up.
The month of the pig, 07 November 2018 – 07 December 2018, is best used for relaxation and withdrawal. See to it that you have a ‘monkey’ at your side.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Being an ally of the dog will present you an exceptionally good year. Success in business, success in academic affairs, reaching goals . . . you name it. Who could ask for more?! Influential people may come up with more possibilities for advancement.
The month of the rat, 07 December 2018 – 05 January 2019, will be quite challenging. Being in the company of a ‘goat’ helps to take things more easily.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
To be left in the lurch can be as annoying as it is frustrating. The only way to get through this is to roll up your sleeves and do it all by yourself. Do not deal with matters that are none of your business. Before you do good consider the consequences.
If you need help, ask the ‘horse’. Don’t do important work in the month of the ox, 05 January 2019 – 04 February 2019.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
It pays to make decisions and to commit to them. Changing horses midstream leads you astray. It is vital to know who can trust. Special care and mindfulness is advised in financial matters.
The year starts with the most challenging month, the month oft of the tiger. Use the time from 03 February 2018 – 05 March 2018 to built up steam slowly but steadily so you are ready to move on as soon as this month is over. Whenever you need a friend think of the ‘snake’ first.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017):
Socialising, enjoyment, and good times prevail. Financial difficulties can be avoided only through the support of advisers that have ‘integrity’ and ‘honesty’ as their trademarks. No step forward is better than one step back.
The month of the rabbit, 05 March 2018 – 04 April 2018, might be a little bit provoking. You better join forces with a ‘dragon’.

In the annual cycle the dog represents the end of autumn and he prepares us for the season of winter. The harvest should have been brought in by now, preparations should be made to get safely through the cold season. Nature is withdrawing and so should we. At least, we should slow down as it is not the right time for enormous advancements.

Looking at the dog through the eyes of the Traditional Chinese Medicine we must talk about a yang-earth/yang-earth constellation in which yin-fire and yin-metal are involved. Yang-earth represents the stomach, , yin-fire stands for the heart, blood and blood vessels, yin-metal for the lung.

Talking about yang-earth we ideally find us centred in ourselves, in peace and harmony with ourselves and with all around us. Solid as a rock, so to say, full of basic trust. But if we are not in a stable condition we might become mistrustful, sceptical, or even wicked. At all costs we want to preserve all that is dear to us, we might become undiscerning or seclude ourselves, sulking.

Fire is connected with joy and enthusiasm, on the negative side with agitation and restlessness. We should constantly reflect on our actions and activities. Not taking care of our own energy, not keeping our own strength and abilities in mind we can easily cross our own boundaries which then will lead us into exhaustion or even burn out.

We should know where our own limitations are and we should know how close we allow other people to come. Whatever comes too close we should hold at bay and keep sufficient distance. We should say “yes” only when we definitely want something. All the rest belongs to the category of “no”.

Remember: there is nothing like a vague “maybe”.

 

 

In our houses, apartments, shops and offices we should use the southeast extensively as it stands for success and progress. But leave the north alone. Keep this particular sector very quiet, refrain from building activities, earthworks and renovations. Do not do anything important or work on professional matters in the north.

For further assistance ask your Feng Shui consultant for advice. beyond that. We must become firm in our minds to control ourselves so that we pause whenever it is necessary, that we find appropriate ways to calm down when we see that we get carried away.

So commitment is what the dog wants to see from us, supporting us by adding that particular ingredient that soothes the conflict between fire and metal.

We definitely won’t have a boring year ahead of us. If we manage to find strength, peace and harmony in ourselves we will be strong enough to make the changes that are necessary. As soon as we have faith in ourselves and in what we are good at the dog will be a faithful companion who guides us through the year.

(*) 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.

What to expect from February 2018 in Chinese Astrology

When the wood-tiger meets the earth-dog

The water-ox retires and with him the fire-rooster. So we are not only at the beginning of a new month but also at the beginning of a new year. The earth-dog wishes us a “Happy New Year” and takes up his reign on 03 February 2018, 21:28h GMT. With him he brings one of his allies, the wood-tiger, that will rule over the first month.


The tiger is a courageous, powerful, bold and highly vigorous creature that loves challenges. He is prepared to take risks and does not like to be held back neither by rules others have made nor by any kind of convention. This can make the tiger quite impulsive or even rebellious. He wants to be free to do as he pleases and act as he chooses. At least once during his life he will throw caution to the wind and go off and do the things he wants to do.


He is honest, courageous and
often a source of inspiration to others, he is very charismatic and has his own point of view on matters. Equipped with a strong will and determination he sets out to reach his goal proceeding very energetically. His enthusiasm with which he does what has to be done is clearly visible.
He can be patient as well as he can be spontaneous. While watching and observing what he might want we can admire him for his cautious endurance. But when he knows what he wants, all of the sudden he jumps in, completely committing himself to having it, wasting no thoughts on possible consequences.


The tiger has a restless nature which includes an adventurous mind. This makes him a busy bee that does not stay in the same place for long. His enthusiasm with which he starts a project can soon deteriorate if something comes up that is more appealing. The tiger could be more successful if he would think things through thoroughly before he takes action.

The wood-tiger in particular is of a pleasant and friendly nature. His good sense of humour is something we can all enjoy. Not being as independent as his ‘cousins’ it is a pleasure to work side by side with him. However, his restless nature gets him easily distracted.
He is very popular and can enjoys the company of a large number of friends. They all keep him busy and see to it that even is social life is never boring.



In times when both, tiger and dog, rule over us we should spend as much time as possible with those who are dear to us. Shared trips, shared pursuits lead to shared pleasure. When new opportunities present themselves we should be quick to take them. Most of the time we can really benefit from what comes up at short notice. If we are able to keep our private life and our work in balance we will be on the winning side of the month that is ruled by two allies.

Time to find out what the signs of the zodiac are going to encounter when dog and tiger are in charge:

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
You
can really draw on unlimited resources. There will only be little what cannot be achieved. In private life as well as in business life all signs point to success and letting visions become reality. Keep yourself from overspending.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
G
et your share of the big cake. But to be cautious at all times and make sure not to act
recklessly. The tiger’s explosive nature can have such effect on the rabbit’s peaceful nature. Let your friend, the dog, guide you.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
The month will come up with a lot of activities, changes, volatile relationships. Keep your life balanced between fun, social events, new opportunities and worries, anger about plans obstructed by others, or any stressful situation.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
You won’t be able to pull all the strings, most of the time difficulties and calamities may result from the actions of others. It is utterly important to know who you can trust. Do not start anything without a plan B.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Hard work really pays off. Keeping a low profile is definitely not what is called for this month. Your allies, the tiger and the dog, can support you best when and where others can see you. You are definitely on the sunny side of the month.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
Enjoy your journeys wherever they may take you. There will be a lot of movement, there will be a lot of moving experiences. Be focused and disciplined and have a realistic view on matters. Watch out or the new month will become more expensive than it should.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
Being safe is still better than being sorry. Who is in a hurry should make a detour. It helps to economise your own strength. Keep a low profile as long as your opponent, the tiger, rules the month.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017):
Exciting changes may happen. It is up to you to appreciate them as ‘good’ or curse them as ‘bad’. Think before you act. Making the wrong move is only one way of asking for trouble. Sobriety and inner peace make all the difference.

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018):
The omens are favourable, all signs point to success. Tailwinds give you the right momentum to accomplish many things successfully. No sweet without sweat, mind you. But it’ll be worth it.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Exciting times are forseen, some may be challenging, some enthralling. New opportunities lead to advancement, locally and further afield. Do not overspend and be very cautious in all financial matters.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Some events might be irritating or confusing for you. If “Plan A” does not work . . the alphabet has many more letters to offer. Practise the secret art of common sense, choke back your anger and the month will be on your side.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
The
month will be very rich in variety. Being prepared will not prevent things from happening, it will help you getting the most out of things that happen. Feel and obey the obligation to keep your balance. If you manage you can have a promising time.

As usual, we all should keep in mind that there are a few days on which we should not do important things.

When it comes to long-ranged projects they should not be started on 05 February 2018, not on 17 February 2018 and not on 01 March 2018. Regarding short-ranged projects we have to step back on 09 February 2018 and on 21 February 2018.

May we act in time, may we find the right balance in everything.

October 2017 – Chinese Astrology

Heading for new Shores – October 2017

When the metal-dog meets the fire-rooster

After last month’s family reunion we now see the next sign of the zodiac approaching. The next one to show up and to take over his official duties is the metal-dog. That will be on 08 October 2017, 02:21h GMT. This dog will bring autumn to its end and will prepare us for the season of winter.

We know the dog as reserved, persuasive, prudent, faithful, responsible, considerate, straightforward, creative, cynical, and occasionally obstinate. This very interesting mixture of skills gives us an impression of what the month will be like, remembering also that the dog is a pack animal.

Those who know what it is like to live in a close companionship know the ingredience of a peaceful life and what leads to unneccessary friction among the members of that group. In a pack everyone knows his or her place. When time comes for changes he or she will step forward and take action. No substitute will be sent forward, nobody is hiding behind somebody’s back.

Dogs do that naturally, humanoids don’t. During the whole process of change it is absolutely clear what is going on. No scheming, no covering up, no smoke screens, no secret alliances. It looks as if the pack on four paws can handle those situations much better than the herds on two legs. Why not follow that example?!

The metal-dog in particular is bold, confident and straightforward. He settles all his affairs in a strong-willed manner and acts resolutely. He has faith in himself and his abilities and never hesitates to speak his mind or to devote himself to some just cause. What he really does not like is when things do not run according to plan. That irritates him and he can become quite narrow-minded in these situations. His family and friends do mean much to him which makes him very loyal and faithful.

How can we all gain from this month’s energy? Well . . . it will certainly help us all if we could broaden our outlooks on things we have to deal with and become more involved in group activities. Let’s take care of those who mean much to us, their support in return will be very rewarding. By adding to our skills and knowledge in our work as well as in our personal interests we will be boost our future chances.

Time now to look at the signs of the zodiac to see what they can expect:

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006):
Only good deeds will pay off. Keep that in mind and live up to it and you will have a rewarding month. Do not claim what is not rightfully yours.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Plan mindfully. Take your time and do what is necessary to make your endeavours a success. Be careful when travelling. Better safe than sorry.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Avoid experiments. Beware of the intricacies of life. Stick to what you know best and do not try to extend your boundaries. Other times are better suited for that. Only hard work will lead to success.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
Cobbler, stick to your trade. You are much better off when you mind your own business. Wrong moves will lead you astray and it will take a lot of time and effort to deal with the consequences. Use your logic and common sense.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
How relaxing it can be to meet an ally. Things run smoother than in the previous months. Business and career go well, promotions are to be expected. Be mindful what you spend your money on or who you support.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
It’s not enough to know what you do not want. Make sure you know what you really want and go for it. Be patient and think twice before you make any investments. Do not mix money with friendship.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
Plan ahead but share your ideas only with those you can trust. Identify your friends, identify your enemies. Lie low, keep a low profile. That is the best you can do in times when you are the official opponent of the ruler of the month.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
There is always somebody who can lend you a helping hand. You do not always have to remove all obstacles by yourself. Stay clear of legal matters, they might cost you more than you can gain from them.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Lucrative opportunities are waiting for you, the ruling ally will boost your business. Keep a clear mind to tie up loose ends. There are changes that you can benefit from.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
Think twice before you act. Take care of your own affairs, avoid getting involved in matters that are none of your business. The best advise is to seek advise from those you can trust.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
Be vigilant, be observant. Watch those around you and find out who your true friends are. Make your own decisions and stick with them. Changing horses midstream won’t get you anywhere.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017):
Plan mindfully and act with utmost care. Make one step after the other knowing that certain things we do can not be undone. Taking care of your family adds tremendously to the month.

No month without special days. This month is no exception to this rule.
When it comes to short-ranged projects they should not be started on 08 October 2017, not on 20 October 2017, and not on 01 November 2017. Regarding long-ranged projects we have to step back on 19 October 2017 and on 31 October 2017.

May we have a joyful month in which we are able to enjoy the company of those we have to deal with.

(*) for this kind of analysis we work with the solar calendar. 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.

June 2017 in Chinese Astrology – Month of the Fire-Horse

When the fire-horse meets the fire-rooster

The Yang-energy of the year gets stronger and stronger and will soon reach its maximum potential. This helps us to carry on and the new sign of the zodiac supports us in getting things done.

As the wood-snake retires the fire-horse comes to us on 05 June 2017, 11:36h GMT.

The horse is a life-affirming and extroverted contemporary that observes the world vigilantly. He annotates his impressions powerfully eloquent and accomplishes constructively what is important to him. Very energetically he gets down to action but does not reach his goals as untiringly as he started his journey. That doesn’t really bother him as long as he is on his way breaking into an occasional gallop.
In his private live as well as in his business live the horse loves the company of others but most of all he loves to be independent. So it’s no use trying to rope him in for something he is not backing. All in all we need a lot of sensitivity to really tame his bustling disposition.
He can be quite stubborn at times and can impatiently push things forward without thinking matters thoroughly through. He can be quite flexible, though, coping easily with sudden changes of direction.

The horse is a natural salesman. Staying upbeat and thrilling people combined with the ability to constantly create new ideas makes him very successful in dealing with people. The horse’s natural ability to convince should not be underestimated. Although having a large number of friends he prefers to walk alone. Following his own path means much to him, roaming free, not following somebody elses trail.

If fire is added to the temperament of the horse one of the most powerful forces of the zodiac is created. The fire-horse leads an eventful and exciting life and creatively finds ways to stay ahead. He loves action and excitement and his days are rarely quiet. His highly energetic personality, his sharp intelligence and his determined way of doing things bring him the admiration and support of many people. His good sense of humour is always appreciated.

On the other hand the horse is definitely not known for beating around the bush and he stops being friendly when someone starts to interfere with his own matters.

This will be another month of great challenges, but also a month of great opportunities. Things will not always be as easy as we would like them to be but as soon as we start working on them we can find our own strength and develop new skills. Successes will be hard won but can lavishly be celebrated.

google.com

Now it’s time to have a look at the signs of the zodiac to find out what the new month has in store for them:

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
It is easy to benefit from this month when you follow your intuition. Plans can successfully be executed, recognition and fulfilment at work are foreseen. Don’t work too hard and use your talents wisely.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
A successful month lies ahead in which your income is likely to increase. Don’t get distracted and focus on what you are doing. The greatest success will be the balance between your private and business life.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
Challenging competitions should be expected and patience is needed to find you at the winning edge of them. Even if caution and diplomacy are not your cups of tea you’d better go for them to get through this month more easily.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005):
Sudden incidents may occur, abrupt changes may be the consequence. Stay alert and there will be no surprises, stay true to yourself and you will not be overwhelmed.

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006):
Business is thriving. As an ally of the horse you can be looking forward to a busy month in which there is a lot to gain. Concentrating on what you know and having faith in your own abilities keeps you on the bright side of time.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Expect less turmoil and look forward to see things getting much easier. Only if you take things with a grain of salt you can really enjoy the new month. It pays to spend money conservatively.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Although it is summer time it pays to wrap up warmly. To stand your ground against the horse, your opponent, can be quite tough at times. The most important goal this month should be to maintain your status quo. Better save than sorry , even if you have the right of way.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
It is favourable to be prepared for a journey on rocky roads. Make all decision only after careful deliberation and be mindful whose advice you will be listening to. Do not get overextended trying to help others. Take a rest whenever you think you don’t have the time for that.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
You can relax from any hardships you had to go through during the last time. Expect good fortune and happiness. Business matters will come to a successful end. It is fortunate to take care of those in need.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
Although dodging and turning corners is what you are very good at, be careful not to stumble. Even your own feet can get crossed over. What goes around, comes around. Helping others will help you get over your own problems.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
It is vital to go with the flow, revolting against all and everybody is a complete waste of time and precious energy. Plan more carefully than you normally do and stick to your plan. Think twice before spending money.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
This month will be only promising for you if you maintaining the proper, healthy distance to everything and everybody. Stay calm in all situations to avoid problems misunderstandings. You can only gain from this month if you avoid everything extreme.

As usual we have to look at a few days on which we should not do important things.
When it comes to long-ranged projects these should neither be started on 09 June 2017 nor on 21 June 2017 nor on 03 July 2017.
Regarding short-ranged projects we have to step back on 06 June 2017, 18 June 2017 and on 30 June 2017.

May all challenges lead to good opportunities and finally to success so that we may have many opportunities to celebrate.

(*) 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.

May – Month of the Wood-Snake

When the wood-snake meets the fire-rooster

The wood-dragon that is retiring now ended the season of spring. The next sign of the zodiac that is going to assist the fire-rooster in ruling over us starts the next season, summer.

pic by powerofdance.com

It is the wood-snake we are talking about that appears on the stage of time on 05 May 2016, 07:30h GMT.

The snake is born under the sign of wisdom. She is highly intelligent and her mind is never-resting.  She is always planning and organising, permanently looking for ways in which she can use her considerable skills. She is a deep thinker and likes to meditate and reflect.

pic by mixcloud.com

Determined to follow through anything she undertakes to the bitter end, the snake detests being left in the air. She makes her decisions quickly and firmly. She is independent and rather a private people who follows her own path, no matter what others think.
The snake often has a wonderful sense of personal style. She is most at home with the best books, films, music, gourmet foods, and anything of fine quality. All around her enjoy her excellent manners. Money is not an issue and she can be quite generous.

pic by goodnet.com

She may appear slow and relaxed, but this sign actually is very analytical and tends to be high-strung and even anxious.
When in love, a snake can be very demanding and also quite possessive. She has high standards for herself and a mate. She can be very suspicious of people in general, and loved ones in particular. This is not always obvious. The snake often keeps secrets and is usually quite careful about what she says. She can be quite noisy but usually is not deliberately outspoken.
The snake does not easily release anything she has chosen to cling to. She is not above seeking revenge and will plot, plan, and wait for the right opportunity. So you’d better do not break promises with a snake.

The element of wood gives the snake a bit of solidity and foundation. Wood-snakes are not as self-preserving as all the other kinds of snake, as vanity is not really her style. This particular snakes has a stable group of friends and family to hang out with and love each of these people quite deeply. However, it is rare that the wood-snake utilises her group of loved ones for advice or listening, often opting to go at it alone. Kindness and frankness are two of this snake’s greatest characteristics.

As the fire-rooster rewards good planning we are best advised to consider our aims as quickly as possible. That is if we have not done it yet. Having objectives and goals in mind will not only help us to channel our energies more effectively but will also make us more aware of opportunities that can help us on our way.

We can achieve a lot this month when we watch out for additional chances and make the most of them. Snake and rooster will favour bold and resourceful activities.

Now let’s see what all signs of the zodiac may be up to during this month:

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
A month to look forward to. Times are beneficial, much can be accomplished. Relationships are harmonious, financial matters can be settled successfully. Enjoy but do not exaggerate.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
A busy month lies ahead that does not necessarily run very smoothly. Some difficulties at work may come up, delays in business may occur, generally things that might leed to frustration. In the company of friends and family consolation can be found.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
It can be fun, it can be hilarious, it can be busy, it can be amusing. Interesting communications see to that. If certain things need to be changed, go for it. This month supports you in that. Travel cautiously and avoid mishaps by planning carefully.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
Concentrate on what you know best so that new opportunities can turn out to be very advantageous. Should emotional difficulties appear family and friends can be very supportive, nurturing and a source of inspiration. Stay calm, benefactors will be supportive in times of difficulties.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005):
An interesting month lies ahead, minor complications that may show up should be regarded as such. There is not much in ‘minor’. Spend money wisely if you don’t want to pay extra. Some members of the family may need more loving care and attention than they normally do. This is a good time to take time off to further your education or studies.

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006):
Learn to compromise, allow the snake’s introspective wisdom to help you with this. You may not experience as much freedom as you personally like. Use this month to find new ways to reach your goals. A good month to open a new business.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Working according to rules and regulations may be boring but it is the best way to get through this month as unharmed as possible. It can give you a lot of stability which you need as the official opponent of the snake. Don’t lose your heart to quickly, romance may be not rewarding and complicated.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Do not overspend, do not overextend yourself. Lowering one’s expectations can be quite rewarding. Appreciate what you have and concentrate on the meaningful things in life. If you are mindful of what you really need you can let go of what you desperately want.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
Expect a great month. Enjoy new opportunities, expansion, good luck, and growth. Avoid being the subject of gossip, scandals, or secrets. It’s a good time to invest in your future.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
After the dragon’s dynamic energy expect now times for healing and creative balance. Your work will be approved, rewarded and appreciated. All travels will be very favourable this month, business travels as well as going on a vacation.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
Watch out: lack of insight, stubbornness, and obstinacy can spoil this month. When unexpected chances occur stay calm and do not get involved in matters that do not concern you. You don’t want others to be possessive or controlling, so do as you would be done by! Literature, arts and theater can provide nice changes.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
Your business will prosper but your private life may not be in the best of order. Pay attention especially to boundaries and responsibilities. If all that are involved are not too stubborn we can even expect a happy ending.

As usual we have to mention those days on which we should not start certain projects or activities.
As far as the beginning of short-ranged projects is concerned we should leave out 12 May 2017 and 24 May 2017. Long-ranged projects should not be started on 16 May 2017 and not on 28 May 2017.
Again there are another 2 days this month on which we should ‘just live’ and do nothing of importance. 09 May 2017 and 11 May 2017 are these days.

May we see the chances we get and may we be as bold and resourceful as snake and rooster want us to be.

(*) for this kind of analysis we work with the solar calendar. 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.

October 2016 – The month of the Earth-Dog in Chinese Astrology

When the earth-dog meets the fire-monkey

Now that we know what rooster and monkey are capable of we might be curious to find out what the next in line can achieve. We are talking about the dog, the earth-dog in particular, that will come into our world on 07 October 2016, 20:32h GMT. Now time has come to find out what we might expect when dog and monkey rule the world.

Looking at the personality of the dog gives us an impression of what the new month will be like: reserved, persuasive, prudent, faithful, responsible, considerate, straight forward, creative, cynical, and occasionally obstinate. We really may be looking forward to experiencing this very interesting mixture that will show us the human skills of this pack animal. Those who know what it is like to live in a close companionship know what encourages a peaceful life and what leads to unneccessary friction among the members of that group. Ideally everyone knows his or her place in that community and when time has come to bring about changes he or she will step forward and take action. Nobody else will be sent forward, no hiding behind somebody’s back. For some people stepping forward can be quite a challenge because they may not be clear about what they really want or need or may not be able to be true to themselves. But this month will bring relief, the dog will lead the way.

There may be occasions when the leader of a pack is challenged to resign his position. If the self-appointed successor is able to prove even against resistence that he is much better suited for the position the former leader will make place and will settle down at his new position.
During the whole process it is absolutely clear what is going on. No scheming, no covering up, no smoke screens, no secret alliances. It looks as if the pack on four paws can handle those situations much better than the herd on two legs. Why not take our cue from that?!
The earth-dog in particular is a talented and astute creature working always methodically and efficiently. He is kind and generous offering a helping hand whenever one is needed. Being rather quiet he does not make a fuss about his own affairs. With his persuasive manner he usually secures his objectives without too much opposition.
This month we should allow us to spend more time with and for ourselves, enjoying our interests, enjoying everything we have achieved so far. We should be sharing that with those we love and those we like. Doing that we give hope and strength to carry on to those who need that.

Time now to look at the signs of the zodiac to see what they might experience:

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006):
Do not claim what is not rightfully yours. Only good deeds will pay off. Keep that in mind and live up to it and you will have a rewarding month.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Plan mindfully. Do not put yourself under unneccessary pressure by not giving you sufficient time for your endeavours. Be careful when travelling.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Only hard work will lead to success. Stick to what you know best and do not try to extend your boundaries. Other times are better suited for that.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
Cobbler, stick to your trade. You are much better off when you mind your own business. Use your common sense. It will take a lot of time and effort to deal with the consequences of wrong moves.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
How relaxing it can be to meet an ally. Your status improves, things run smoother than in the months before. Be mindful what you spend your money on or who you support.

Rabbit
(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
Be clear with what you really want. It’s not enough to know what you do not want. Be patient, it is not the best of months to invest in immovable property.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
Lie low, keep a low profile. That is the best you can do in times when you are the official opponent of the ruler of the month. Plan ahead but share your ideas only with those you can trust.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001):
You do not always have to remove all obstacles by yourself. There is always somebody there to give you a hand. Stay clear of legal matters, they might cost you more than you can gain from them.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
The ruling ally will boost your business, lucrative opportunities are waiting for you. If you do not overact or exaggerate things you will be enjoying fame and fortune.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003):
The best advise is to seek advise from those you trust. Do not deal with matters that are none of your business. Think twice before you act.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004):
Make your own decisions and stick with them. Changing horses midstream will get you nowhere. Watch those around you and find out who your true friends are.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005):
Plan mindfully and act with utmost care. Make one step after the other knowing that certain things we do can not be undone. Taking care of your family adds tremendously to the month.

No month without special days. The month of the dog is no exception to this rule.
When it comes to short-ranged projects they should not be started on 13 October 2016, not on 25 October 2016, and not on 06 November 2016. Regarding long-ranged projects we have to step back on 11 October 2016, on 23 October 2016, and on 04 November 2016.

May we have a joyful month in which we appreciate the company of those we have to deal with.

(*) 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.
