The Zodiac

What sign are you?

And who shares it with you?


You got out from under last year by the scruff of your goatee. But unfortunately, dearest rack of lamb, it’s out of the fireplace and into the fire. Some things are on the up: you’ll find more people with feelings for you, though it’ll be up to you to work out whether schadenfreude is what you want to inspire in people. Keep chewing on the cud, Goat - better years await.


You’ll be thrilled to discover that the “sick amulet” star is taking up residence with you, we kid you not. This chap casts a pall over your comings and goings - it  might be a good time to spend in the feedlot. But if you pay strict attention to safety, there’ll be mutton to worry about. The first half will carry over from last.


A year with few expectations means one with few let downs. We’re just airing a principle here - you can happily count sheep for all the good it’ll do. Your regular income should continue as is, but if the repo men come for you, they’ll ask you to pay with cash, mere cash, so it needn’t get your goat, or leave you raddled, thistle blow over in no time.


Funnily enough, here you do have a beneficent star wandering into your paddock. You know what to do, oh hairy-thighed one: curl back your top lip and expose the teeth . . . well, nice try. Happily that star is going to stay for a while and you shouldn’t crimp your own style. Buck up old boy.


Water comes to replace fire, but that doesn’t mean that setting your boss’ desk alight will get you a promotion. That said, getting off your own butt will bring its own rewards so no need to stand sheepishly in the corner or you’ll end up with the possibility of getting culled.

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

Progress. The powerful prince is honoured with horses in large numbers. In a single day he is granted an audience three times.

The sun rises over the earth: the image of Progress. Thus the superior man brightens his bright virtue.

Six in the fifth place means remorse disappears. Take not gain and loss to heart. Undertakings bring good fortune. Everything serves to further.

We’re not sure if any of this is unclear, but it’s pretty much carte blanche, you’re going to be able to get away with anything you decide to do, no-one is looking. Think early 5th Century BC Athens and the sudden realisation that no-one can stop you. What you do with all that power is up to you.
