The Zodiac

What sign are you?

And who shares it with you?


Have a ruminant on the year past. All those cow-eyed romances and a-moo-sing times. Complete and udder perfection? They continue right on through the first calf of the year. So if you didn’t get hitched to the wagon of your dreams last year, you’ve still got time to claim your steak. Plough on in the field of dreams, buttercup, and note that it’s a good time to sharpen your mental acuity. Be that intellectual bull at the gate.


Well, you have the constitution of an ox. Take it easy early in the year with the cold still around that you don’t freisian. Should you stray off the cow-path and wander into the star abattoir, remember there is a silverside to every lining. Don’t even consider chucking it in, it’s not a veal problem.


Is this the year for taking briskets? Apparently it is. Cast your money out and milk it for what you can, fillet up, you are the cash cow; while there’s no switch in sight, just be careful that no-one is having a loin of you. Don’t go for the cock-and-bull stories, there’s always the chance that someone is trying to tickle your prime rib.


You’re still over the moon, with love coming on as strong as a bull. You know they want you, they can’t outflank you, they can yak all they want but you’ve got them by the longhorns and the shorthorns. There is a time limit of course, down into the second half of the year you’ll only be getting cow pats on the back, they’ll only see you as a bull-headed clod.


All cow tracks lead to roam. Fortune favours the brave so don’t chuck it in, when the cows come home you can teat them to a story of what you’ve seen and herd. This is not the year to measure success and failure, but to take stock and let the cow chips fall where they may.

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

Judgement Abundance has success. The king attains abundance. Be not sad. Be like the sun at midday.

Both thunder and lightning come: the image of abundance. Thus the superior man decides lawsuits and carries out punishments.

Nine in the third place means the underbrush is of such abundance that the small stars can be seen at noon. He breaks his right arm. No blame.

We think this is pretty clear, you go out walking in the New Territories. The trail is thick with scrub and the Conservation Department hasn’t had time to clear it all away. You fall over and knock your head on a rock, hence the small stars at noon. Message: see that ‘no blame’ codicil? Get health insurance if you don’t have it; you’ll not be suing your way out of this.
