Prepare for the Peaceful Pig
Wed Dec 26 2018 |
The Chinese Year of the Brown Earth Pig starts on February 5, 2019.
Each year, when I report on the predictions from Asian Feng Shui masters about the coming lunar year, I make the same disclaimer: I'm just the reporter here, not the predictor. The predictions included here are for fun only, no other claim is made. Personally, I believe that you have control over your actions and create the kind of year you will experience.
That being said, it looks like this year will be good for almost every animal of the Chinese zodiac. The masters are using words like fortune and luck. It's predicted to be a great year to make money and to invest. The year will be full of joy, friendship, and love for all the zodiac signs. In China, the pig is thought to behave itself, with no plan to harm others. So 2019 will be a good year. The pig is an ethical and idealistic sign, and represents wealth and generosity. For 2019, the lucky colors are red and white.
In China, the traditional gifts to wish prosperity and luck in the New Year include red envelopes filled with money, oranges (signifying riches or wealth), tangerines (established symbols of luck), plum blossoms (symbolizing hope and courage), narcissus flowers (symbolizing the New Year), or paintings, stamps, and illustrations with these flowers.
Here is what the Asian masters are predicting for each sign of the zodiac in 2019:
Rat. 2019 will be a year of new opportunities for the rat. You might be a little slow and not hyperactive, but that’s perfectly acceptable as your mind will be pretty active. This is the year for the rat to make or break relationships. If you like someone, go tell him or her. Now is not the time to keep quiet. Birth years: 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008.
