The Zodiac

What sign are you?

And who shares it with you?


The Tai Sui still casts a shadow in the coop through to spring so last year’s warnings apply for the first few months. Donating blood (your own by the way - those pesky stars can tell) is a good workaround. Peck at the husk rinds in the dust in the first quarter, then head for the grain trough. They may have clipped your wings, but higher perches are yours for the taking.


No ruffling of the feathers this year - any aches and pains are just chicken sh*t. Keep abreast of how you’re feeling; a couple of chicken runs might just keep you from the pot. Everyone knows that if you want to crow with the dawn, you have got to get enough rest. Biddy you can’t stay up all night lest you reap what you sow.


Some of your hard-earned grain may be in danger of rotting away. Oddly enough, the remedy is to spend some cash early on something you like - that’ll trick the gods of penury into thinking that you’re someone else and you’ll be able to count your chickens. Old barnyard friends may introduce new barnyard friends - no need to feel cooped up this year at all.


Preen yourself and strut around, someone out there is looking for just the type of cock you are. It’s a chicken for every pot - or a pot for every chicken - this year so if you’re already taken, go to the fireworks show again. The birds of love sing true, the drumsticks pound away, thigh to live up to your potential, so put on your wingtips and step out.


Petty chooks surround your noble workstation because they know your chances of advancing are good and they would like to ride your tail feathers. Withstand their poultry slings and arrows, banty with them at the water cooler. You know the capon they’re up to and can duck out of any unpheasant or fowl plans they may have for you.

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 third place means all are in accord. Remorse disappears.

All are in a cord - the farmer is without remorse, your fate is in your hands. The sun is above the earth and this is your time to cackle and crow. Comb back your comb and spur your spur, the superior man cocks his hoop.
