It is a special year for people that is 'snake' in Chinese zodiac. In the
east, snakes do not have the burden such as original sin. However,
there is a concern called 'self animal year' according to my best
translation. It is the year that matches your animal sign. Traditionally,
people wear red belt or tie a red string on their wrist in hope for a
healthier year. Is such tradition totally based on FengShui or pillar
analysis? No. But it has been a very good tradition for many years
according to most people's grandmothers.
It is going to be a relatively difficult year for
the snakes. Being very prudent is the general advice, particularly
Finance: You do not have to be a Feng Shui or financial expert to
realize that it is not the best time in investment for you this year. Pay
a lots of attention to the details. Be clear on exactly what you are doing
and how are you going to do it before you make every move. If you are not
sure, put your money in government bond or an FDIC insured account. Mold
does not grow on money!
Career: Snakes might harvest a good salary increase or bonus from
work this year. Again, pay attention to details, avoid conflicts. It is
usually hard to improve your reputation in a short time period but only
takes one second to ruin it. Therefore, pay extra attention to the
relationship with your colleagues. Learn from the Borg, the best way to destroy
your enemy is to assimilate them.
Romance: I am always nervous in telling people about their romance.
Let me put this way, for the short term romance oriented snakes, you are
having a good year. For long term romance oriented snakes, avoid
Your yearly advice in short: Be prudent and
Your monthly discussion will soon follow.
