A year to look like a suckling pig: enough money to get a holiday on a beach and come back with a suntan; enough joy at work to make sure that the fruit in your mouth is always fresh and delicious; and enough support and love from others to make sure the grin is long and wide. All of this should be yours, just don't flay your body and mind so much that you end up as the suckling pig.

A brace of pesky stars threatens to trim the fat of an otherwise fine year. Overwork and general anxiety will bring temporary health issues - you'll wake up, look in the mirror and just see a wart-hog. As boaring as it may be, you'll be better off devoting extra time you may not have to taking care of yourself – food, drink, exercise, all the basics for a good shoat at success this year.


A fat hog is a good hog, there's plenty of goodness heading your way - but don't make a pig of yourself. Investments, if wise, will turn a dollar, partnerships in this are indicated and little should sow it. Expenses are also likely to be a deep trough for you to drink at this year. Keep bringing home the bacon or your bank balance will be out of the black like a greased pig.


Pigs of both sexes have around 12-14 teats, it'll be difficult to squeeze them all at once, but that's how you may be feeling this year. If you've got some spare ribs, then share them around. Not all of this love is going to go in the saddleback direction, but that's not always the point. The chances for being a pig in clover with your emotions is good.


You might just be the first person through the farm gate. Polish up the trotters, show a little cheek and the opportunities and accolades from those above will cascade down. Oddly enough, despite having a steak in it all being so good, this is not the year to change jobs, pigs that do can expect to be led to the slaughter; for some reason your great fortune is tied to where you are.

Guiding hexagram from the Yi-Jing (Book of Changes)

Holding together brings good fortune. Inquire of the oracle whether you possess sublimity, constancy, and perseverance; then there is no blame.
On the earth is water: the image of holding together. Thus the kings of antiquity cultivated friendly relations with the feudal lords.
Six at the beginning means hold to him in truth and loyalty. Truth like a full earthen bowl: thus in the end good fortune comes from without.
If you're planning on taking an active role in some feudal re-enactment game, then your orders are clear - friendly relations with feudal lords is a fine strategy. Polish your lance and pay someone else to joust for you. Loyalty is highly regarded outside the earthen bowl of one's immediate situation.
