Your patience and the ability to flick your tail and discourage small freeloaders from getting a ride on your back will be called upon this year. Maintain a self-belief in your self-belief and whatever yokes you find draped across your shoulders will not impede your progress in any meaningful way. It would not hurt to keep in mind that not everyone else is as good-natured as you are. Whatever their beef is, it's not yours to worry over.

Don't allow your enthusiasm for a hard day's work to translate into exhaustion; steer your energies into remaining away from the paddocks of relentless drudgery. The Illness Tally Star passes by and is an opportunistic wrecker. Counter it by keeping to a settled schedule and not allowing that herd of malign influences any purchase.


Ever feel like you're being moved from pen to pen but somehow always end up back in the same enclosure? Even when you're watching the market livestock go up and down, there's a feeling that the bull market lacks bulls and that you're tethered to the same place you’ve always been. You might think your investment girth has fattened, but it might just be that the leather has stretched.


With the Sublime Crimson Bird of Love Star (from the stable of the Peach Blossom Star) coming by, your cow eyes are going to be simply irresistible. That Star has a habit of arranging marriages, so if you wake one morning to find it at your window, start making the necessary preparations.


In parallel with your wealth, the cosmos is going to juggle your work environment and have you graze your head and knees in a cyclical fashion. It would behoove you to spend time on relationships this year. Your chances of advancing far, quickly, are not good but efforts made in ploughing the fields of social relationships will pay off in the future. B-ranch out if you dairy. Certainly, don't chuck it in, for this year there should be a silver side to every cloud.

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

Grace has success. In small matters, it is favourable to undertake something.
Fire at the foot of the mountain: the image of Grace. Thus, does the superior man proceed when clearing up current affairs. But he dare not decide controversial issues in this way.
The Forest of Changes:
Find peace in benevolence and esteem virtue; our eastern neighbours value righteousness, they come to pacify our country.
Keep yourself away from controversy – it will waste energy otherwise better devoted to making this a year of small but continual gains, and of having the benefit of loved ones being there with you. The neighbours favour righteousness? You've nothing to lose with going along with that while you need to.
