Happy Chinese New Year 2009

On the Chinese calendar, 2009 is Lunar Year 4706-4707, and 26 January begins the Year of the Ox.
The year of the Ox is associated with domestic trouble that seems to have no solution. The grounded, rational, earth influence of the Ox may bring good fortune to troubled economic times but only with a sustained, well planned effort. The Ox influence brings an aversion to risky credit & quick answers that are not well conceived. The Ox year brings success only through discipline & through hard work. The steady ox is quick to anger when confronted by what seems to be irrational opposition, but the use of reason works well & avoids a charge by the angry bull.There is much danger of war & unrest if diplomacy does not prevail. Many will be searching for a quick solution to the current economic crisis, but the ox favors a well planned, consistent path that will take more time but lay a foundation for long lasting results. The strong earth influence of this year favors a strengthening of the housing market, but risk takers will not find this year favorable. Those who look for long term benefits, have a well thought out plan & are willing to work to see results will find great success. Those who are influenced by the Ox will have experienced many years of good fortune if the planning, hard work and discipline of the sign were heeded. Those who failed to plan are given a new opportunity this year. If the lessons of the past are integrated, the future brings harmony & good fortune at home & in business.
Remember, whatever the omens portend, for better or worse, you are the final master of your own fate.
