APPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!
Hop, hop. It is the Year of the Rabbit. It's going to be a big year, I think. According to
www.chiff.com, the new year will be calmer than last:
"The year of the Rabbit is traditionally associated with home and family, artistic pursuits, diplomacy, and
keeping the peace. Therefore, 2011 is very likely to be a relatively calmer one than 2010 both on the world scene,
as well as on a personal level.
Conversely, nations will also become more insular and increasingly lock down their borders to protect against the 'other.'
However, 2011 will also see new art movements projecting a distinct national identity taking the world by storm. Shrewd
and creative new business partnerships will also form to the benefit of all.
Rabbits who thrive on delicate business dealings are best suited to navigating the year ahead. Those compatible with the
Rabbit -— the Sheep, Dog and Pig in particular -— will also find 2011's circumstances inspiring them to greater personal
happiness and professional success.
Others will suffer, by degree, depending on how flexible they are to the world mood. Those who have cultivated careful
negotiation skills (or, perhaps more importantly, can sniff-out and swiftly dodge dangerous situations!), may attain
similar good luck enjoyed by rabbits and those compatible with them in 2011."
"On February 3rd we will enter a year of the creative, yet very private Rabbit. The essence of the year will be that of 'detachment.'
The element or heavenly stem of the year will be Metal, taking it's turn moving through the Yin - feminine, negative, night force.
For some, there will be rest for the weary; for others, 2011 brings a time of independence and even aloofness. An aesthetic year
with emphasis on the fine arts, music & treaties made by the fireside. A diplomatic and slower paced year, in sharp contrast to the
previous exhausting Tiger months of 2010.
The entertaining, yet discreet Rabbit peeks out from behind life's couch to entertain, to soothe, and to practice his virtuous
qualities. All signs will feel the pull toward quality, rather than quantity in their relationships. A year of mended fences,
reconciliation, and good manners will prevail as the Rabbit is the ultimate diplomat and peacemaker.
Tense situations become more flexible while business and commercial activities look up. For some, marriage may be in the
works, but for most, romantic commitments may not happen this year due to the Rabbit's independent and noncommittal nature.
Rabbit years urge avoidance of close emotional involvement; preferring instead a calm, status quot world of good friendships,
rather than long-term romantic commitments.
Refinement and good taste color this coming year, as the diplomatic Rabbit teaches persuasion rather than force. An even-tempered,
low-key year, in which we will all keep one foot out the door.
For me, the Dog:
"2011 heralds in a soulmate year for loyal Dogs. The Rabbit provides a quiet, safe place for the worrisome Dog to lay
their head and be 'off duty' for a while. Meditate, read, and take inventory of your causes. Many Dogs will marry or
become engaged in 2011."
"Being a Dog myself I am really looking forward to 2011 and overall it will be a very good year especially for us
earth Dogs born 1958, play your cards right and follow all the advice here along with the annual flying stars. 2011 should
be good for wealth, career, romance and general luck. Dogs born in 1934 and 1982 need to be careful in relationships especially
if they are married, spend more time this year with your partner as your potential success for the year can cause you to
overlook people that are important and this will cause you problems. Unmarried Dogs born in other years can expect new
relationships and even rekindle existing ones. Your year will be busy but leave some time for play and make sure you take
plenty of rest. Dogs born in 1958 (me) and 1970 will have a fantastic year and can expect amazing opportunities in wealth
and business. If you were born 1958 (me again) you must take time out to relax and watch what you eat which is always a
problem for me as I spend so much time in hotels and whilst eating good quality food I know it has far too much salt and
other additives that I should be watching out for.
Your busy lifestyle can cause you stomach problems this year so please be careful, I would place six coins in a row tied
with red ribbon beside your bed especially if it is located in the east or west. You should be careful signing contracts
this year, so make sure you read all the small print and do not let yourself be conned by someone sweet or fast talking.
With regards to wealth, business and career, 2011 can be a year of seeds you planted over the last few years which will
now blossom, so please make the most of this year as the wind is behind you although make sure the wind does not blow
you away; this is particularly true for Dogs born in 1958. Do not think though that all this means you can just sit
back and let the good times happen, hard work is still needed by you. Young Dogs born in 1994 will do well this year
but they should ideally carry an image of a Rabbit for protection, as should all Dogs in 2011. This is a great year
to reflect on your life and be honest with yourself, our true character is what we do when we think no one is looking,
be true to yourself and help as many people as you can in 2011, you will get real rewards from this, read my words again,
this could change your life and expect good changes in 2011, reputation is what the world thinks a person is; character
is what they really are.
Remember having good Feng Shui does not guarantee a perfect life, you still have to work at other aspects of your life,
whilst the year may be good for the Dog you will still have watch the way you live your life and make sure they rest,
play, learn and watch what you eat and also how you live their life, I am a great believer in Karma and strongly
believe whatever you put into this life will be rewarded later good or bad and not in money terms but the quality of
year life and also health, you are what you eat too. Make this a year of helping others and maybe with the extra
finances you should have this year maybe consider making some donations to a worthy cause or person. Try to watch
what you eat when you can and stick to an exercise programme when possible. 2011 will be a good year for the dog with
much career gain and a great year for romance."
Sounds like a good year overall!
