The Zodiac

What sign are you?

And who shares it with you?


While the Tai Sui will try to harass you, the stars are otherwise good and congregating in your back garden. Petty people, those snakes in the grass, will be backstabbing, so you’ll need to be the empty boat that steers around them. You’ll find those who delight in you being ever the more so, make the most of it, intertwine and twist the good things together. A little good work will see you gliding smoothly across most obstacles.


To make sure you stay in rude health this year, you’re advised to remain at arm’s length from alcohol. If not, you’ll end up on some old-time pharmacy bench as a curio. Your lungs and windpipe may be delicate so when swallowing prey we suggest a touch of snake oil to help get them down.


Winding your way to the upper echelons should be the goal in the months ahead. Both orthodox and, er, oblique  income streams are due to flow smoothly. You were once a burrowing lizard - time to reprise that role because the work you put in this year will come looping back to you.


Moulting or not, you’ve the chance to bring the affairs of your sneaky little heart to a fine resting place. Cast out your former incarnation as the viper in the bosom and realise the cute little squamata within. If you make those snake eyes at someone, how are they going to resist? Remember, you’ve no diaphragm so your heart can move to where it wants to be.


Civil serpents can kick back and relax, the jade-hall star is appearing overhead. This is a good study year for snakes who can avoid falling off the chair and spending class time winding themselves around other people’s legs. Concentrate on uncoiling your own issues and no venom will come your way.

Famous Snakes

President of the PRC Xi Jinping; author JK Rowling and actor Ben Stiller.

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

The Receptive brings about sublime success, furthering through the perseverance of a mare. If the superior man tries to lead, he goes astray; But if he follows, he finds guidance.

The earth’s condition is receptive devotion. Thus the superior man who has breadth of character carries the outer world.

Six in the fifth place means: a yellow lower garment brings supreme good fortune.

Either it’s good for you to slough (that yellow garment being your old skin on the way out): new skin, new game, new life. Or this is a good year not to buy bleach. Don’t worry about the directions and friends’ advice, the earth’s magnetic poles are changing over again, befriend whomsoever you wish.
