The Zodiac

What sign are you?

And who shares it with you?


Quite a decent year, better than last. The gods of love are wearing serpentine heads and like Fuxi and Nüwa, your opportunity to coil is approaching the mythological. If you make snake eyes at someone, they may just focus back. The only mongoose on the horizon is the one through which you lose things - not of great value, but they will be a nuisance to replace.


The anxious-at-work snake makes a return, let not those worries interweave and wrap around your precious health. Spend time with family and friends, nurse no snakes in your bosom and avoid dangerous activities asp they’ll adder nothing to your wellbeing. Keep an eye on those a generation senior to you - you don’t want them rattling the cages.


In the reflection of your eyes we see much wealth. The stars that favour you are out and fat field mice are running everywhere. Much of your wealth can come through electronic formats, so even virtual mice can be consumed. But chasing those with extra risk attached is not advised - the field mouse with the antisnake gun can be left alone.


Slither and writhe on in, those gods of snake love are out, particularly those to do with introductions through family and friends. While travelling the world, the one you are looking for turns out to come from the same snake pit! Insinuate yourself and change your skin. Romance and honey, the two things everyone associates with snakes, are still in your chart this year.


Believe it or not, the stars are calling for you to not run companies and your career as if you were a snake-oil salesman. No serpentine moves, no speaking in forked tongues, no hissing and no slimy, scaly sloughing either. No creeping, no wriggling, no coiling and no squirming. If you want to get ahead then you’ve just got to sit upright, like a proper snake.

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

Keeping still. Keeping his back still so that he no longer feels his body. He goes into his courtyard and does not see his people. No blame.

Mountains standing close together: the image of keeping still. Thus the superior man does not permit his thoughts to go beyond his situation.

Six in the second place means keeping his calves still. He cannot rescue him who he follows. His heart is not glad.

Mountains standing close together still allow you to move through and also focus. If the calves are still, you can bite one and dine from it for the entire year - thus is the image of keeping still. No need to think beyond where you are; for those out in front you can do nothing for them, they will take care of themselves as you will yourself.
