The Zodiac

What sign are you?

And who shares it with you?


Sure, the Tai Sui is there to give you the hangdog look, but you can always teach an old dog new tricks. Avoid those petty dog-and-cat fights with which that nasty star wants to crowd out your kennel - we say the doghouse for him! Let him make a dog’s dinner of his own fate. Yelp is at hand if you don’t see this year as a dog and pony show.


It’s not the time for dachshunds to dash. Nor is it the year to go bungy jumping, even if you are a great dane - take it slow. Stay away from sharp metallic objects, so perhaps turn down any polite offer of an excursion to the abattoir. Dogs should pay a little more attention to the digestive tract; no more chewing down on rubber types or anything hanging off the postman.


A year to press the paws buttons on all your accounts. Each and every morsel of doggy wealth that passes through your bowl must be smelt. Get up, walk around the rooms a few times in a circle and then sit down comfortably. With old man Tai Sui sitting at the kennel door, you’ll want to make sure all your money is retrievered or you’ll be down-at-heel.


Put a leash on your heart, but get hitched if you wish. It’s a bit of a dog’s life for emotions this year, and yet that’s better than the possible alternative. You might say love me, love my dog, but your other half may not take you up on the offer. If you are looking to stretch the collar of love, colleagues and those met through family could get your tail wagging.


Someone above is throwing a dog a bone this year so if you’re thinking of letting your dogs out, call them off. Take a pointer from us - this is not the time to be the office terrier. If you’re in business for yourself, stay with your better clients. Don’t go off and see a man about a dog. Heed this advice and keep in mind that the dogs bark but the caravan goes on.

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

Contemplation. The ablution has been made, but not yet the offering. Full of trust, they look up to him.

The wind blows over the earth: the image of contemplation. Thus the kings of old visited the regions of the world, contemplated the people and gave them instruction.

Six in the fourth place means contemplation in the light of the kingdom. It furthers one to exert influence as the guest of a king.

It seems you’ll be both travelling and your own butler this year. You can also give yourself some advice. In lieu of this, we think the light of the kingdom means don’t wander around hotel rooms without switching on the lights, especially if you’ve not been to the bathroom.
