entry arrow6:44 PM | The Rabbit in the Year of the Ox

Part of the fun of any New Year celebration is finding and figuring out what lies ahead. No one has to believe in any of this stuff, but it does give us a kind of "barometer" on how to live the life ahead of us. God knows I've taken some positive turns in the past after some clairvoyant advice. (Right, Gabs?) For the most part, I get my fix of fortune-telling in the menagerie that is the Chinese horoscope. I'm a Rabbit, and so I ask: what lies ahead of me in the Year of the Ox? One website has the following to consider:

The Rabbit (1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999) can look forward to a better [year] in 2009 because of the number of stars of relationships shining on him in the Year of the Ox. After going through many changes like reunions, separations, heated arguments, and changing jobs, things will be more stable and favorable for him.

The star of Harmony Yue De symbolizes excellent human relationships and it can turn dangers into opportunities. This means that the Rabbit will be having people around him taking good care of him and supporting all his needs. The star Sui He is a star that represents harmony between spouses. This star can also help the Rabbit get support from his supervisors and/or superiors as well as from elderly family members.

Two stars, Tao Hua and Xian Chi, which are stars of Love Luck, are working together to make the Rabbit be more attractive and charming than ever before. For Married Rabbits, however, it is advised that they practice extreme caution and try hard to resist temptations. Because with the two stars shining on them, they might be overwhelmed by people who will show interest in them, no matter what their gender maybe, or else they might become involved in love triangles. These people will do anything just to please them. For Single Rabbits, it is a good year to pursue that love interest because there is a good chance that it will be accepted.

Lastly, the stars Xiao Hao and Si Fu are two stars that the Rabbit should be aware of and take extra caution with. Because Xia Hao represents minor financial loss, which [can] be brought about by the money spent in entertaining more friends and lovers. Si Fu, on the other hand, represents an elderly male family member who might suffer from health, which should be given special attention to.

I'm tickled pink by all these. There are already several things in this forecast that I find right on, but I'm only highlighting the one thing that everybody who knows my blog (and somebody else's) already know.

It's an intriguing read. Let the New Year finally begin!
