The Zodiac

What sign are you?

And who shares it with you?


The Tai Sui and Monkey are not your friends. You can eat the latter but then there’s indigestion to deal with. It’s not a fair world and you’ll not be able to cheetah your way out. Health is the one to watch so you’ll need the lion’s share of goodness. This year may not be so much the leopard changing his spots as you changing everything else. Winter tigers may follow prey they spotted last year; do not grab a Tiger by the tail, even if it is your own.


Accidents with vehicles loom on that road ahead: perhaps let in another driver once or twice, they’re only paper tigers and you’ve nothing to lionise them for. Alternatively get yourself a chauffeur and head for the tiger reserve - a spa and a river swim will have you singing like a jaguar. If in doubt get some tiger-bone plaster and er . . .


So they come to you with the deal of a lifetime - they’ve got to be kitten if they think you’ll fall for that. Besides, you’ll be wanting the lion’s share. Some caution is called for - stalking your intended may not be acceptable, but stalking a little more dollar is entirely reasonable. Follow the lynx in the chain and that pot of gold could be yours.


Hmm, who doesn’t love a cougar? Or riding a tiger? All that is certain is that this year brings change and emotions fickle and obscure, it is difficult to say what is for the better. Tomcat or tabby, whichever you’re seeking, just make sure it’s snow leopard, and those spots aren’t changing. A little considered digestion and correct hunting habits (nocturnal) will have you purring.


The knives might be out for you, but if there’s one sign that can walk the precipice without fear, that’s you. It’s also a good year to learn from other people’s mistakes - there are already more than enough copies in the world.

Famous tigers

Actor Leonardo Di Caprio and businesswoman Pansy Ho.

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

The Family. The perseverance of the woman furthers.

Wind comes forth from fire: the image of the Family. Thus the superior man has substance in his words and duration in his way of life.

Six in the second place means she should not follow her whims. She must attend within to the food. Perseverance brings good fortune.

And why must she attend to the food? Because you’ll be attending a conference on feminism and, well, someone’s gotta cook da food. Look on the bright side, if you fly to the USA you get to time travel, but only by a day; if you follow this sage wisdom you can travel back to, well at least the neolithic age; before that our instruments don’t function properly. Let us know how it goes - we’ll probably still be at that conference.
