Chinese Astrology August 2017

When the earth-monkey meets the fire-rooster

With the new month a new season begins. The weather may not give us any clue but now autumn starts. Or to put it in more accurate terms: autumn starts when the fire-goat hands over responsibilities to the earth-monkey. This year this event takes place on 07 August 2017, 07:39h GMT.

The monkey in general is imaginative, inquisitive and loves to keep a watchful eye on everything that is going on around him. He is never shy to offer his own opinion on all matters or to sort out the problems of others. The meaning of the constellation of the letters ‘n’ and ‘o’ that spells ‘no’ is unknown to him.

He is very intelligent, well educated and always eager to learn new things. He is also a convincing speaker and enjoys being part of debates and heated discussions. He is very persuasive and has absolutely no trouble winning over people to his way of thinking. With that he is predestined to be in the PR-business, teaching or any activity that involves selling.

 

The earth-monkey in particular is a highly educated and a well read creature that can become quite distinguished in his chosen field of work. He is less extroverted than the other types of monkeys preferring quieter and more solid activities.
Blessed with an enquiring mind the earth-monkey can enjoy a great variety of interests. He is very good at dealing with financial matters and he is patient enough to gather wealth continuously and untiringly.

The calming influence he has on those who are around him is great and he is well liked and respected. His principles and moral standards are high, he is very much caring for others and generous to those who are not as fortunate as he is.

He does not open up easily and he is very careful in choosing people who he can trust or confide in.

There will be many demands on us this month. Before making any decisions we need to check exactly what is asked from us and what the implications might be. Whatever we are inclined to do we should make sure that nothing interferes with our homelife or prevents us from enjoying the rewards for work well done.
It is highly recommended that we spend quality time with family and friends and to follow our own needs.

Now let’s see what the next month will be like for all the signs of the zodiac:

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
Enjoy and rejoice, a fantastic month is here to come. It is an excellent time to start new endeavours. Success in business matters is foreseen as well as tremendous progress in many other fields. You can really benefit from this month.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005):
It is now your turn to put your world in order. You’d better devote your time to this task This will help you to proceed courageously and puts you in the position to deal effectively with unforseen difficulties cast upon you by the ruling signs. A more sober and practical approach is the best approach when you want to be successful.

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006):
Expect a lot of activities and involvement in many fields. Projects may not run the way you planned but that should not prevent you from being enthusiastic. Keep your sense of humour if you have to begin certain things anew. Look at it as a good opportunity for a fresh start.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Social gatherings and affairs are very exciting. Look forward to them. However, do not let that good mood misguide you to become the victim of financial imposters with their ill-fated investment schemes. Guard your assets, be careful and mindful.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
An excitingly funny month lies ahead that will present you with a lot of inspiring surprises. Your close ally, the monkey, sees to that. Hard work from the past bears fruit. Enjoy a very harmonious time with your family.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
Do things your way and you will be rewarded. Stay true to yourself, stay true to your values, stay true to your convictions when facing adversities. The influence of the wily monkey may bring some discomfort.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
It will not be the most pleasant month that lies ahead. Unfortunately the number of those who can make life unnecessarily difficult has increased. Choke back your anger. Smile and think of doing something naughty, laugh when you’ve already done it.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
Mind your own business and things may run smoother than you can possibly hope for. Expand your business slowly and continuously. Do not make risky investments, do not let your bank statement be a visual record of bad decisions.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
Fame and fortune are in store for you. Your close friend, the monkey, takes good care of that. Do not miss opportunities because they are dressed in overalls and look like work (Thomas A. Edison). Avoid quarrels and legal entanglements.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
May you be guided by your innate wisdom and intuition. These are your guarantees for winning over the wild turmoil and extremes the monkey produces. New friends will be valuable in times to come.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Sudden gains and wild luck are the results of the monkey’s influence. The more you give the more you will receive. Travelling can be beneficial especially but only when you keep your eyes on the road. Be very careful when handling sharp metal objects or tools.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
Life is like a rollercoaster, it has ups and it has downs. But it’s your choice to scream or enjoy the ride. Do not get swept away by big plans and wild monkey schemes. To remain calm and to remain neutral is the best piece of advice you can get this month.

As it is with all months again there are certain days on which we should not do things of importance.

Short-ranged projects should be started on 07 August 2017, 19 August 2017 and 31 August 2017, long-ranged projects not on 08 August 2017, 20 August 2017 and 01 September 2017.

May we make the right decisions. Not only this month.

(*) 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.

Chinese Astrology – July 2017

When the fire-goat meets the fire-rooster

The season of summer is being wrapped up now preparing the world for the next time of the year.

On 06 July 2017, 21:49h GMT the fire-horse retires and makes room for the fire-goat.

www.whatsyoursign.com

The goat is a gentle and mild-mannered creature, shy, stable, amicable, and brimming with good-nature and a strong sense of justice.
Although she looks gentle on the surface she can be quite tough on the inside. She has a strong inner resilience and is very capable of standing up for herself which can easily be seen when she insists on her own point of view.

We know the goat as creative and imaginative appreciating the finer things in life. With this attitude she cherishes a relaxed environment in which she can live ideally free of any sort of pressure. She utterly dislikes any kind of quarrels or situations she classifies as ‘unpleasant’ and hates to be bound by rigid schedules or strict routines.

pinterest.com

With her relaxed approach to life the goat cannot disguise the fact that she is quite a perfectionist. Whatever she is working on she always gives her very best disregarding the fact that often less is more.
Although she loves company she does not necessarily insist on being the center of attention. She appears rather quiet, most of the time lost thoughts and ideas how to change things for the better.

ketchupblog.com

 

The fire-goat can get herself lost in her creative thoughts easily ignoring matters that are not to her liking. As she is very generous towards others often there is not much left for herself. The fire-goat is best advised to exercise more caution in these matters. Caring for oneself has nothing to do with being selfish. She is a very lively person who enjoys the company of many friends. She loves attending parties and social events.

This month we all should concentrate on our relationships with the members of our families and our friends. Giving and taking is what the goat and rooster want to see from us. Following to the motto ‘together we are strong’ much can be accomplished. If we remain true to ourselves, reach out for our aims and use our skills wisely we will be able to enjoy great results while strengthening our own positions.

How does the constellation of rooster and goat affect the signs of the zodiac?

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
A beneficial month lies ahead, things can be accomplished according to plan. New opportunities arise and can be used favorably. It is nice to see how well creative and artistic energies can be used to reach goals.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
This month will not be boring, the activities of others will stir you up. It is a good time to plan ahead behind closed doors. Involve only those you absolutely trust. Be patient and wait until next month before you put your secret ideas into action.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017):
The best way to spend this month is by relaxing, resting, and travelling. Stay out of trouble and mind your own business. One move in the wrong direction can result in a series of unfortunate events.

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006):
Inner balance pays, extreme attitudes doe not pay. If you think of relaxing and vacationing, pleasant social events or improvements in your home, the goat will assist you in that. If you want to take a fretful and pessimistic view on your life, the goat will be of assistance as well. Even ruining your financial situation will be supported. You have the choice.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
It is a good month to solidify plans and visions. Don’t be surprised if you see a breakthrough in your business or your career. Even taking up new studies can be beneficial. Expect a pleasant month of romance, good finances and good fortune.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Life will become more easy but definitely not boring. Time to relax and recover from the challenges you had to face last month. Recognize new opportunities when they present themselves, seize them and take advantage of them. Some may even turn out quite profitable.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
This will not be your best month this year, not everything will be working according to plan. Being the official opponent of the month’s ruler can have it’s pitfalls. Keep a low profile, play it cool and be patient. Better times are there to come.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
Concentrate your attention on family and friends. They might bring you lots of opportunities. The goat helps you to relax and to have pleasant experiences when travelling. Before acting take all possibilities into consideration and chose your options wisely. Don’t rush things.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
Enjoy reaping a rich harvest. Your hard work will be recognized and rewarded. Be patient and calm, everything is coming your way or is working in your favor. Just make sure you know what you want.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
You have seen better months, you also have seen worse months. Things may not run as smoothly as you want them to run. It helps to avoid confrontations. Watch out and stay clear of those who are known to create chaos. Self-discipline and noble deeds will pay off.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
This month it is easy to overdo things. This month it is wise not to overdo things. Making new friends can be beneficial. But be careful or others will take advantage of you. The sunny side of the street is the more profitable side.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Expect a calm and easy month, your good friend, the goat, will see to it. You have very good chances to complete successfully what you have begun a long time ago. The more generous you are to others the more it is beneficial for you.

No month would be complete without them, those days on which we are no to do important things.

As far as the beginning of short-ranged projects is concerned we should leave out 13 July 2017, 25 July 2017 and 06 August 2017. Long-ranged projects should not be started on 15 July 2017 and 27 July 2017.

Again we have another 2 days that are not suited for anything of importance: 08 July 2017 and 10 July 2017. However . . . it is not forbidden to have fun.

May giving and taking be in balance, may we all see great results in all our endeavours.

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.

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.

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

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.

May 2016 – Chinese Astrology Forecast

The Month of the Water-Snake

When the water-snake (month of may 2016) meets the fire-monkey (year of 2016)

It is quite common in life that there are times when we have to say ‘good-bye’ to somebody. And there are other times in which we welcome somebody new in our lives. On 05 May 2016, 01:41h GMT, we have to let go of the water-dragon and welcome the water-snake.


The snake is born under the sign of wisdom. She is highly intelligent and her mind is permanently busy. She is always planning and organising constantly looking for ways in which she can use her considerable skills. She is a deep thinker and likes to meditate and reflect.

The water-snake in particular has a wide variety of interests. She enjoys all sorts of studies and loves to go real deep into things that she finds fascinating. She loves to do detailed research and soon becomes an expert in the chosen field(s). Not only for that it helps her tremendously to have a good memory.

She appears to be a reserved and quiet creature but has sufficient strength of character to make her views known and to get her ideas across. She really knows how to reach her goals.
When dealing with business and financial matters the water-snake’s shrewd intellect and sharp mind help her to be very successful in what she does.

She is very supportive for her own family and very loyal to her friends.

Generally speaking monkey and snake are the best of friends. But having to assist the fire-monkey in ruling over the world takes the water-snake definitely out of her comfort zone. No question about that. Not all things will work according to plan, situations can alter, requirements may change or new possibilities will present themselves on short notice.
If she accepts that the winds of change finally blow in her favour she can actually look forward to a very successful month. Results may not show directly but having changed things or subjects or ways of doing things initiate certain events that lead her to the road to success.

It would be wise not to keep everything too close to herself. When particular matters worry her, rather than keeping her concerns to herself she should consult others. The more open she is the better the outcome will be.

The new month will not only be a busy month, it will also be a time to discover pleasant things we can find delight in.

Careful, thorough and thoughtful should be our way to approach the new month. We may not always feel comfortable with the pace with which the monkey proceeds. Relying on our instincts and following our inner voice we can benefit from the changes we will experience. Allowing us time to develop our own personal interests can be very satisfying and can become beneficial in other ways.

It is time now to find out how the signs of the zodiac see the coming 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 solace 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.

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.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005):
An interesting month lies ahead, even minor complications that may show up can be regarded as such. 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.

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 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 to rule 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 unrewarding 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.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
After the dragon’s dynamic energy expect now times for healing and creating balance. Your work will be approved, rewarded and appreciated. All travels will be very favourable this month, even if it’s “only” 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. You don’t want others to be possessive or controlling, so do as you would be done by! Literature, arts and theater provide a nice change.

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 05 May 2016, 17 May 2016 and 29 May 2016. Long-ranged projects should not be started on 08 April 2016, not on 20 April 2016 and not on 01 June 2016.

Again there are another 2 days this month on which we should ‘just live’ and do nothing of importance. 14 May 2016 and 16 May 2016 are these days.

May we find time and opportunities to develop our own personal interests in a satisfying and beneficial way. May the odds ever be in our favour. Not only this month.

(*) 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.

Monthly Chinese Astrology – March 2016

2016 – the Month of the Metal-Rabbit

When the metal-rabbit meets the fire-monkey

The beginning of the year of the fire-monkey was probably not the easiest
time of the new year. Somehow it was obvious that tiger and monkey have
never been the best of friends. Now that we have an impression of how the
monkey can be and what the monkey is capable of we are ready to face the
new month.

On 05 March 2016, 03:43h GMT, the metal-rabbit will enter the
stage. Let’s see what we can expect from this constellation of our rulers.

This particular member of the rabbit-family is a capable creature ambitiously working to
reach his goals. As such he has very definite views on what he wants to achieve in life.
Occasionally he appears detached, reserved and aloof, mainly because he likes to keep
his thoughts and opinions to himself. If we don’t know such a person quite well we will
have a hard time trying to find out what he thinks. He knows quite a few people but
only e few are chosen to belong to his group of friends. In this circle the most
outstanding feature is loyalty so that we can speak of a “tight-knit community”.
The metal-rabbit has a quick and alert mind and is particularly shrewd in business
matters and can also be very cunning in whatever he does. If you are a scaredy cat
stay away from the rabbit.

He has a good appreciation of the fine arts and as passionate art lover or even art
collector the metal-rabbit likes to be part of the selected circles of the so called ‘better
class’ of people. He usually has a small but very loyal group of friends.
The Metal Rabbit likes to plan ahead and lives up to the slogan of the Guides’ and
Scouts’ Federation “Be prepared!”. By this he can not only make the best of situations
but also use his time most efficiently. However, while he may have his own thoughts of
what to do and how to spend his time, he is best advised not to regard these as set in
tablets of stone. Monkey usually has different ideas of what time can bring and is very
likely to come up with a lot of surprises. A lot can be achieved, though. Many lucrative
opportunities may come up but to gain from them a great amount of flexibility is
required.

Life does not only consist of working and keeping oneself busy. It is also composed of
relaxation and well-being. Considerate thoughts about ones diet and the level of
exercise should be followed by the appropriate actions. Special attention on this can
really makes a difference this month.
We are best prepared for this month if we give ourselves time to pursue our personal
objectives. This is the best way to get pleasure in these tough times. And it will also
lead us to more possibilities to progress. It is still true: the slow horse reaches the mill.

All the signs of the zodiac are facing the constellation. Here is what they may
experience during the new month:

Rabbit
(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
Birds of a feather flock together. An empowering month is coming up. It’s a pleasure to
be with other people. With so many new opportunities success is sort of inevitable.
Enjoy a joyful family life.

Dragon
(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
Mind your own business means having to worry less. That’s one way of creating a
peaceful month. See to it that your family life is stable so that you will find many
opportunities to have a calm and relaxed time.

Snake
(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
Enjoy the arts, indulge in fine fashions and cuisine. Relax during pleasant vacations.
Even though these good times can be slightly more expensive than anticipated success
is catching up on you.

Horse
(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Appreciate good fortune and lucky circumstances. Your private life, your social
activities, and your business can flourish. Investments will pay off, marriages will be
happy, families will be blessed with new members.
Live long and prosper.

Goat
(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
Look forward to experiencing a very successful month. Receive many invitations, attend
many wonderfully convivial gatherings. Enjoy the company of others and be prepared
for more opportunities to thrive.

Monkey
(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
Keep calm and you will recover quickly from what you went through last month. Enjoy
the company of the rabbit. The harmonious influence helps to become really successful.

Rooster
(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005):
Matters are not as complicated as they appear. They are probably even more
complicated than that. Circumstances can change suddenly. Something you regard as
secure does not necessarily stay secure. Be prepared for rapid changes and act
accordingly.

Dog
(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006):
Keep moving. Keep moving forward. Keep moving forward at your own pace and you
will be rewarded lavishly. Enjoy the peaceful influence of the rabbit on you. A good time
to get married.

Pig
(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Home and family life are fulfilling. A good time to redecorate your home or move to
nicer place. Enjoy the company of many friends and acquaintances. A relaxing vacation
can be very beneficial.

Rat
(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Use every opportunity to meet new people. That will help you to succeed in business
matters, that will help you to increase your influence. Things may not run as smoothly 2016 – the Month of the Metal-Rabbit
as you like them to run. If you need help, ask. Do not hesitate.

Ox
(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
Relax and everything goes according to your plans. Many auspicious moments will
present themselves. Your career expands. Keep your powder dry! Life is easier without
personal conflicts.

Tiger
(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
Expect a happy and easy month. Get as much rest as you can, relax and your personal
affairs will run more smoothly. It is a good time to expand your business and your
career. But only if you proceed with caution. Spend money wisely.

No month would be complete with those days on which we should not do important things.

When it comes to short-ranged projects these should neither be started on 16
March 2016 nor on 28 March 2016. As far as beginning long-ranged projects we should
leave out 09 March 2016, 21 March 2016 and 02 April 2016.

Again there are another 2 days on which we all should keep a low profile: 15 March
2016 and 17 March 2016.
May we all experience a beneficial month that brings pleasure as well as new
possibilities.
