You will have to live discreetly, with eyes wide open, and handle any problems that arise.

Although doing so may be difficult for you, if you don’t take advantage of the generosity being offered, you may never get another chance.

Love:  In a year when you will not always get what you want, love and family will represent important support. Think more about maintaining what you have, than about conquering new domains.

Career: The star called Ornament appears in your destiny, which up to a certain point as a positive influence. This star holds a symbol of achievement but also of isolation, like the loneliness that hides behind the exteriors of the rich and famous.

Money:  There is not much good luck, but not necessarily bad luck. If you lead a regular life, with a careful and wise management of money, you will get to the end of the year with a positive balance.

Health: Although this is a good year for health, some stars point towards a tendency towards accidents, especially due to sharp objects.

It’s time to be proud of your accomplishments. If you have been depending on others to pick up the tab or front your business ventures, that payment will be expected. As long as you execute your ventures well, you will not have to deal with any backlash from supporters.

Love: The star Pink Phoenix will bless marriages that are planned for this year, and will bring luck, in general, to everything that is related to love. It is also a great year to have children.

Career: You will be in the limelight. You may be promoted in your job or reach some other kind of success. The great challenge of the year will be, more than reaching success, being able to keep it and make the best of it. Especially during the second half, this year is auspicious for launching new projects. But be careful — You may have a court of false friends and flatterers waiting to take advantage of any slipup.  But if there is no effort and discipline, if they don’t establish precise and demanding goals for this year, the twelve months may pass without anything solid and concrete happening and remaining.

Money:  Protect your worldly possessions with caution.  However, in general you can prosper financially, especially during the second half of the year.

Health: A favorable year; still health must always be respected.

MessageUNDER THE HEAT OF THE SUN:  2015 brings a more favorable atmosphere than the year before.  This is due to the positive influence of two stars:  The Sun and the Pink Phoenix.  The Sun helps to solve problems and reach success; the second favors happiness.  But if there is no effort and discipline the year may pass without anything concrete happening.

ROOSTER

2005 1993 1981 1969 1957 1945 1933

If you leave things to chance, you’ll be placing yourself in a vulnerable situation. Don’t wait until you are forced into making a decision. Take the initiative and walk down a path of choice. You can make a comeback this year if you know what you want. Be prepared to make the sacrifices.

  • Love: You will be lucky in all related to affection. You will always find someone who will understand and support and encourage you towards your goals. A good year for the beginning of a new love relationship or for marriage.

Career: You will have to know how to deal with difficulties and react intelligently, always trying not to mix up the essential with the secondary. Act with competence and uprightness, so that no one can exploit your weak spots and mistakes. There will be months of decompressing, in which progress will be easier and your merits recognized.

Money:  Money will arrive, but not as a consequence of any “genial idea”. It is very important that you have a wise and conservative strategy, especially around controlling expenses. If not, problems may arise that could eventually be serious.

Health: Health will generally be OK, that is, the body’s defenses will react vigorously to anything that might constitute a threat to health. But avoid accumulating stress, for that would disrupt the balance.

Message: HAVING PRECISE OBJECTIVES  The most negative star of the year is called Prison, and that constitutes an alert to abide by the law in a rigorous manner. The smallest mistakes may have a very high price to pay. On the other hand, the year of the Goat will represent a test to the Roosters’ self-confidence. If you resist the first conflicts of luck, everything will begin to run smoother, and you will reach the end of the year in great shape.

Best months of the year 2015: April, July, August, October and December

DOG

1994 1982 1970 1958 1946 1934

This will be a year of more happiness than success.  Love, family life and money issues are more favored than your career.  The difficulties of the year of Goat 2015 will be related to the star called Threat of the Year, that points towards a tendency for conflicts with people and institutions. But the weight of the benign star the Moon will be more significant. It is the power of Yin energy. As the Moon light up the nights, so this star will brighten the human lives and destinies.You’ve always gotten by using your persuasive charm but this year it will take a little more effort. The true test of your creative ability will unfold this year if you give it your very best.  Sentimental life will be the best protected aspect. It may be the beginning of a new relationship, marriage, or simply a happy life, as the positive conjunction may have different kinds of manifestations.

Love:  Not only will love be good, all personal relations tend to evolve in a very interesting and constructive way.

Career: In this field things may not be as easy or simple. You will not overcome eventual obstacles by the use of force. Above all, it will be important to act with intelligence and not lose sight of the situation as a whole. You have to put first things first and not react under the effect of emotions.

Money: The best way of “attracting” money will be (as strange as it may seem) not doing anything special to get it. It will be enough to have the good sense of having well balanced finances, and expenses reasonably under control. This way opportunities will appear naturally and it will be just a question of managing them wisely.

Health: This will be another positive aspect of the year. But if there is stress, that may have a negative effect on health.

MessagePROTECTION OF THE MOON  In every situation, people born in the year of the Dog will gain from listening to more experienced people. An enlightened intelligence and a sharp intuition will allow them to, not only feel danger from a distance and avoid it, but also discover and obtain what is good.

What you should strive for in 2015: harmony and balance in all relationships

Your lucky numbers in 2015: 11, 13, 29, 31, 36, 44

PIG

pig2007 1995 1983 1971 1959 1947 1935

This year there are several “malignant stars” appearing in the destiny of the Pig, and they might be the origin of problems.  The year ahead will take you in a new direction that promises a better future and a happier existence. With knowledge as your objective, the outcome will lead to professional changes and expansion.

Love: There is a great predisposition for conflict, and if that tendency is not fought back it will certainly give rise to problems, which may be serious. For those who are not married, the natural harmony existing between the energies of the Goat and the Pig will have a much clearer effect. That may take up the form of a sentimental relationship, which will change everything.

Career: Despite the difficulties that will probably occur, the prediction is that you will end up victorious, if that is your desire. It is important that you don’t rush ahead, and analyze the situations with a cool head before reacting. Try to understand what is really going on. Besides, the star Pointing to the Back suggests that there is vigilance towards enemies that don’t show their face, and who, because of that are much harder to fight.

Money: Eventual financial problems will probably be the reflection of difficulties that were found in other areas. Wise management of money will be enough to reach the end of the year with a positive balance.

Health: An eventual threat to your health will be more related to intense emotional states, and your subsequent inner tension. Fighting stress and leading a healthy life will be enough to keep the body and the mind in shape.

Message: THE POWER OF INNER STRENGTH  The astrologer Rocky Sung says that, however black the situation looks you must keep your self-confidence and the will to win. Victory will be waiting for you after the storm blows away, so it would be a crime to give up. Like we said before, the benign star The Three Pillars will be valuable and important help.

2008 1996 1984 1972 1960 1948 1936

The year ahead will be a marked with improvement, but some upheavals can be expected. The limitations will lift, however your success will be based on the level of commitment you give to whatever it is you wish to pursue. As long as you don’t expect everything to drop in your lap, you will make gains.The second half of the year tends to be better, especially in professional matters.  Changes are likely to take place swiftly and without much notice but you always do best when met with an element of surprise. Adventure is just around the corner.  Despite the global positive balance, you should not expect that a year without any difficulties. There are several “negative stars”, which constitute an alert for eventual and unexpected problems.

Love: Younger people, and those not yet committed to a stable relationship, may have an interesting year. Your attractiveness will be highlighted and some affairs may occur, although it is highly unlikely that any of them will last. For other, you should try to improve your relationship within your marriage and family.

Career: It is very important that you pay attention to your relationship with co-workers and professionals in general. This will be your Achilles’ heel in this year. If you don’t treat eventual problems that may arise, you may have a high price to pay for later on. There is the danger of ending up isolated. The second half of the year this situation will improve and clear up.

Money: In this area there are astrologers who point to the appearance of a star called Gradual Breakdown. Its symbolism is related to the importance, in agriculture, of a good management of water for the irrigation of cultivated land. Here, water symbolizes money and the existing resources. If there isn’t a wise and careful management, all the best you have maybe reduced to almost nothing by the end of the year. This can be avoided if you stay alert.

Health: This is the strongest aspect of 2015 for you. Health problems are unlikely, and the body will have strength enough to react vigorously before whatever tries to disturb its natural balance.

Message: A BETTER YEAR  This year, you will have the star Lunar Virtue supporting you. It will be important, especially in crisis situations, to pay attention to other people’s feelings. If you do that, you will develop an exceptional ability to influence other people, which is half way to solving their problems.  2015 will be in general better than the previous. Although moderate, there will be more progress.

Best months of the year 2015 for Rat: January, February, May, July and December

What you should strive for in 2015: the freedom to follow your heart

ox2009 1997 1985 1973 1961 1949 1937

In the traditional Chinese philosophy the ends meet, and what is very negative holds inside the possibility of being positive.It may take the better part of the year to accomplish what you are trying to do but the end result will be in your favor.Focus, determination and following through with your plans will be a must if you want to reap the reward during the last quarter of the year.  Patience will be required on your part and you mustn’t be discouraged by any minor setback. If you complain or become nervous about the way things are going you will lose ground.  Patience will be required on your part and you mustn’t be discouraged by any minor setback. If you complain or become nervous about the way things are going you will lose ground.

Love: You will be more attractive and magnetic than usual. Eventual problems that may occur in this area will be more due to excess than due to default. Marriage and family life will be protected in 2015.

Career: Progress may be difficult in 2015. You may have the feeling that your efforts are worthless. In fact the most appropriate way of solving problems is not with effort, but with a careful and intelligent performance. Be discreet and try to improve your relationship with other people.  Like we said before, the situation may turn into a positive one in an instant.

Money: Even though you may feel a lot of pressure, don’t commit illicit or unlawful actions. You run the risk of paying too high a price for the smallest mistake. If you avoid risk investments or unusual initiatives, the year-end balance will be positive.

Health: The biggest danger in 2015 is that, in situations of great tension, health may become a weak link. That means this aspect of life should be a priority. If you lead a healthy life, both physical and mentally, you will feel stronger and that will enhance your ability to turn problems into opportunities.

Message: A YEAR OF CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES  The star Tail of the Leopard appears your fate. To step on the tail of the leopard, unadvertedly or not, means the fiercest ferocity will awake and turn against you. Due to the influence of this star, you should avoid provoking people or institutions.

What you should strive for in 2015: gathering information and putting it to good use

TIGER

tiger2010  1998  1986  1974  1962  1950  1938

At first glance, the energies of the Tiger and the Goat do not combine. The Goat is related to the peaceful development of life where extremes are avoided. The Tiger has a predisposition for great challenges and a radical approach to life. If you are a Tiger, 2015 may seem slow, dragging and uninteresting.  But with the passing of the months you will realize things are not quite like that. On the contrary, the year could become constructive and positive. The harder you try, the more you’ll achieve.The chaos of the past is coming to an end and although nothing ever runs smoothly in your life, there will be fewer surprises this year. You should concentrate on finishing what you start and broaden your creative horizons. You can count on others for help this year so don’t hesitate to ask for favors.  The very people that you approach will not only give you the support you need but will bring knowledge, ideas and cash to the table. Your cash should be put away for safekeeping this year.

Love: The star Heavenly Happiness symbolizes joy in marriage and a cheerful family. Its influence benefits sentimental life. If you are a single Tiger, the expectation of a new relationship or marriage will always be present.

Career: This is a clearly positive year, due, among other reasons, to a star which symbolism is linked to the so called “Flower of the Emperor”, that is said to have been planted inside the Forbidden City. It represents social superiority. This star’s appearance in your destiny points to the probability of a job promotion and the ability to deal with difficulties and controlling situations.

Money: The star Sudden Collapse in your destiny signals prudence. Its symbolism is connected with the image of a building collapsing from the lack of solid foundations. That is, if the fundamentals of projects and businesses aren’t solid enough, they may end up collapsing due to the slightest accident. Risk investments should be avoided.

Health: Your physical and mental health will be one of your best assets this year. Feeling stronger, you will face life in a more positive way. The rest (namely good luck) will come along.

Message: THE MAGIC OF SUCCESS According to the famous astrologer Rocky Sung, the magic word for you this year will be “concentration”. You will almost everything you yearn for through a correct mental attitude and activation of creativity.  But don’t go to the extreme and let yourself go blind because of your own ambition. That would be destroying the magic.

RABBIT

rabbit2011  1999  1987  1975  1963  1951  1939

2015 is clearly a favorable year you. You should make an effort not to let this potentially excellent period pass by without taking advantage of this opportunity.

The fact that good things begin to happen – even though they are not a product of personal effort but only of good fortune – will have a positive effect on your psyche, and that in turn will improve situations even more.

You will finally start to feel good again. Things will open up and your achievements will be plentiful. You will have added discipline and the way you handle things will bring about positive changes as long as you pay proper attention to small but important details.

The obstacles that you faced in the past will no longer plague you; you can coast along with ease. All the years you have spent helping others will now bring you the rewards you deserve.

Love:  Focus on preserving what you already have, more than on trying anything new.

Career:  2015 is a particularly auspicious year, excellent to launch a new project or business.

Money:  2015 is a good year for transactions and investments. The business intuition will be finely tuned.

Health:  Health itself won’t be a problem. But there is some predisposition for accidents, especially those related to water.

MessageA FAVORABLE YEAR  Even though the balance is clearly positive, there are still a lot of negative stars in the destiny of Rabbits for this year.  That means not everything will be a rose garden, but you must never loose heart in difficult moments, for soon everything will be positive again.  Even so, this will be a year for all things except to stand still. The more involvement there is in the action, the more possibilities you will have of living an unforgettable year full of events.

Best months of the year 2015: April, July, September, October, and December

What you should strive for in 2015: greater self-confidence and powerful attitude

Your lucky numbers in 2015: 19,22,28,35,42,47

DRAGON

dragon2012  2000  1988  1976  1964  1952  1940

Sit back and take a bit of a breather during 2015. Stick to what you know best and complete whatever it is you’ve been working on but don’t start new ventures.  You will gain the most doing what is hardest for you to do: finishing what you’ve already started. Grant yourself that much-needed vacation.

Love:  The most significant threat in this field is the presence of the star Isolated Living. Its symbolism stems from the punishment that was inflicted, on ancient China, on those who acted against law and tradition – they were isolated from their family.  This star points to the need of paying due attention to others, and to expressing affection.

Career:  Your creative and innovating attitude will attract success, but you need to keep within the boundaries of what is reasonable.  Often the road to success will not be what you had imagined, but acting according to what is possible.  You may have to make some concessions now, so that later they can be rewarded with solid success.

Money:  Be wise.  The atmosphere of success will inevitably bring financial benefits.  But if you are not careful with your expenses, or if you make risky investments, you may reach the end of the year with a negative balance.

Health:  In many moments of the year you will live intensely, and you won’t always adhere to the basic principles of a healthy life. This will be your weakest link.  Make an effort to pay attention to your health.

Message: COURAGE AND SUPERIORITY  Beyond the great projects, professional or not, that mobilize your personal energies and creativity, don’t forget the human side of life. Namely the time we “waste” or “lose” with other people may not be immediately productive, but constitutes in itself a form of enrichment.

Best months of the year 2015: February, May, August and November.

What you should strive for in 2015: completion and accumulation.

Your lucky numbers in 2015: 1, 12, 22, 27, 41, 44

SNAKE

snake2013  2001  1989  1977  1965  1953  1941

The road to success and happiness is linked to an attitude focused on fulfilling your own tasks, solving your own problems, and avoiding issues that are specifically other people’s affairs.

Be careful with delivering criticism, for it may receive a bad reception.

The great card of the year is the appearance of the star Travelling Horse, that points to the possibility of voyages that will change life positively. Contacts abroad should be looked upon as positive and welcomed with arms wide open.

2015 will be also a year of cultivating and nurturing relationships that can be of use to you in the future. For now it’s a year to contemplate and let things settle down. You will have no need to rush and no need to feel anxious. For you the coast is clear to enjoy yourself for a change. Don’t get too comfortable, however. Trouble may be brewing at home where you least expect things to go wrong.

Love:  Don’t expect too much in this aspect. If anything positive is about to happen, it will occur spontaneously, and not by force.  On the other hand, relationships with other people (in marriage, family or friendship) should be as healthy and as natural as possible. It is convenient that any tension that arises will be immediately solved by an honest and enlightening conversation.

Career:  Follow a conservative and defensive strategy, and think more about preserving what you already have than about conquering new territories.  Progress and positive things will happen mostly due to hazard and good fortune, and not so much to effort.  In general the year is not favorable to launching new projects or taking initiatives, except if you are connected with foreign countries.

Money:  If you chose to lead a regular life, in which each month’s income is always greater than the expenses, there will be no problems.  But everything will be much more complicated if expenses are not under control or if there is the temptation of making large investments.

Health:  Health will be your strongest asset in 2015. You should be aware of that and make the most of their physical and psychological well-being.

MessageA TIME FOR TRAVELLING  It is believed that those of you born in the year of the Snake hold a strange magical power.  Some even think that one of the greatest challenges for you is learning how to deal with that inner strength. If you’re able to tune in with it, you can work miracles; if not, inexplicable problems will begin to arise.

If you realize you are after something, then you’re not in tune with your power.  But if you simply wait for what you deserve to come to you, miracles will begin to happen.

Horoscope 2015: DREAMS COME TRUE

HORSE (East) –  GEMINI (West)

horse2104  2002  1990  1978  1966  1954  1942  1930

The Horse is a sign of action and adventure, but its natives don’t often have the objective and subjective conditions to give free rein to their freedom philosophy and enjoy life.  This year everything tends to be in position and many of your dreams can come true.

Opportunities will abound, your qualities will be recognized and your actions welcomed. True, there will be problems and obstacles, but this year’s positive energy will allow you to overcome them easily.

You’ve come a long way and it’s time to stand up be counted. Make those moves you’ve been thinking about or plan that special getaway. The coast is finally clear and your versatility will enable you to get the most out of life.

Love:  People born in the year of the Horse are passionate and emotional by nature.  If you’re not currently in a relationship, this year will bring a lot of news. If you’re married, it will be a lively period, but maybe somewhat confused, for emotions will be running wild.

Career:  Two important and powerful favorable stars appear in your destiny in 2015, bringing you popularity, support from friends and colleagues, and the conditions to take your projects ahead.

The danger that exists is that the success atmosphere may turn against you. To avoid that happening you must make an effort to keep the most discreet attitude possible, and be alert to the feelings of jealousy that will certainly flourish around you.

Money:  The favorable atmosphere of the year will bring financial benefits, namely those stemming from a good professional situation.  However, Chinese astrologers advise you not to push your luck, and to try to avoid earning money through gambling or speculation.  Also, control your expenses.

Health:  The star called Spell of Sickness recommends that special attention should be paid to health-related issues.  With the liveliness of the year, you may have the tendency to neglect this essential aspect of life.

MessageDREAMS COME TRUE It is undisputedly a (potential) year of good luck, but that doesn’t mean that success and happiness are automatically guaranteed.  The cornerstone of Chinese astrology is balance. This means, too much good luck may also be a problem, if it’s not properly dealt with. The reins of good fortune must be under control, so that it doesn’t become unmanageable, or even destructive.

Best months of the year 2015: February, May, June and December

What you should strive for in 2015: security and future prospects

Your lucky numbers in 2015: 8, 19, 26, 30, 37, 41

If you leave things to chance, you’ll be placing yourself in a vulnerable situation. Don’t wait until you are forced into making a decision. Take the initiative and walk down a path of choice. You can make a comeback this year if you know what you want. Be prepared to make the sacrifices.

  • Love: You will be lucky in all related to affection. You will always find someone who will understand and support and encourage you towards your goals. A good year for the beginning of a new love relationship or for marriage.

Career: You will have to know how to deal with difficulties and react intelligently, always trying not to mix up the essential with the secondary. Act with competence and uprightness, so that no one can exploit your weak spots and mistakes. There will be months of decompressing, in which progress will be easier and your merits recognized.

Money:  Money will arrive, but not as a consequence of any “genial idea”. It is very important that you have a wise and conservative strategy, especially around controlling expenses. If not, problems may arise that could eventually be serious.

Health: Health will generally be OK, that is, the body’s defenses will react vigorously to anything that might constitute a threat to health. But avoid accumulating stress, for that would disrupt the balance.

Message: HAVING PRECISE OBJECTIVES  The most negative star of the year is called Prison, and that constitutes an alert to abide by the law in a rigorous manner. The smallest mistakes may have a very high price to pay. On the other hand, the year of the Goat will represent a test to the Roosters’ self-confidence. If you resist the first conflicts of luck, everything will begin to run smoother, and you will reach the end of the year in great shape.

Best months of the year 2015: April, July, August, October and December

What you should strive for in 2015: a healthy attitude and the use of common sense

DOG

1994 1982 1970 1958 1946 1934

This will be a year of more happiness than success.  Love, family life and money issues are more favored than your career.  The difficulties of the year of Goat 2015 will be related to the star called Threat of the Year, that points towards a tendency for conflicts with people and institutions. But the weight of the benign star the Moon will be more significant. It is the power of Yin energy. As the Moon light up the nights, so this star will brighten the human lives and destinies.You’ve always gotten by using your persuasive charm but this year it will take a little more effort. The true test of your creative ability will unfold this year if you give it your very best.  Sentimental life will be the best protected aspect. It may be the beginning of a new relationship, marriage, or simply a happy life, as the positive conjunction may have different kinds of manifestations.

Love:  Not only will love be good, all personal relations tend to evolve in a very interesting and constructive way.

Career: In this field things may not be as easy or simple. You will not overcome eventual obstacles by the use of force. Above all, it will be important to act with intelligence and not lose sight of the situation as a whole. You have to put first things first and not react under the effect of emotions.

Money: The best way of “attracting” money will be (as strange as it may seem) not doing anything special to get it. It will be enough to have the good sense of having well balanced finances, and expenses reasonably under control. This way opportunities will appear naturally and it will be just a question of managing them wisely.

Health: This will be another positive aspect of the year. But if there is stress, that may have a negative effect on health.

MessagePROTECTION OF THE MOON  In every situation, people born in the year of the Dog will gain from listening to more experienced people. An enlightened intelligence and a sharp intuition will allow them to, not only feel danger from a distance and avoid it, but also discover and obtain what is good.

What you should strive for in 2015: harmony and balance in all relationships

Your lucky numbers in 2015: 11, 13, 29, 31, 36, 44

PIG

pig2007 1995 1983 1971 1959 1947 1935

This year there are several “malignant stars” appearing in the destiny of the Pig, and they might be the origin of problems.  The year ahead will take you in a new direction that promises a better future and a happier existence. With knowledge as your objective, the outcome will lead to professional changes and expansion.

Love: There is a great predisposition for conflict, and if that tendency is not fought back it will certainly give rise to problems, which may be serious. For those who are not married, the natural harmony existing between the energies of the Goat and the Pig will have a much clearer effect. That may take up the form of a sentimental relationship, which will change everything.

Career: Despite the difficulties that will probably occur, the prediction is that you will end up victorious, if that is your desire. It is important that you don’t rush ahead, and analyze the situations with a cool head before reacting. Try to understand what is really going on. Besides, the star Pointing to the Back suggests that there is vigilance towards enemies that don’t show their face, and who, because of that are much harder to fight.

Money: Eventual financial problems will probably be the reflection of difficulties that were found in other areas. Wise management of money will be enough to reach the end of the year with a positive balance.

Health: An eventual threat to your health will be more related to intense emotional states, and your subsequent inner tension. Fighting stress and leading a healthy life will be enough to keep the body and the mind in shape.

Message: THE POWER OF INNER STRENGTH  The astrologer Rocky Sung says that, however black the situation looks you must keep your self-confidence and the will to win. Victory will be waiting for you after the storm blows away, so it would be a crime to give up. Like we said before, the benign star The Three Pillars will be valuable and important help.

2008 1996 1984 1972 1960 1948 1936

The year ahead will be a marked with improvement, but some upheavals can be expected. The limitations will lift, however your success will be based on the level of commitment you give to whatever it is you wish to pursue. As long as you don’t expect everything to drop in your lap, you will make gains.The second half of the year tends to be better, especially in professional matters.  Changes are likely to take place swiftly and without much notice but you always do best when met with an element of surprise. Adventure is just around the corner.  Despite the global positive balance, you should not expect that a year without any difficulties. There are several “negative stars”, which constitute an alert for eventual and unexpected problems.

Love: Younger people, and those not yet committed to a stable relationship, may have an interesting year. Your attractiveness will be highlighted and some affairs may occur, although it is highly unlikely that any of them will last. For other, you should try to improve your relationship within your marriage and family.

Career: It is very important that you pay attention to your relationship with co-workers and professionals in general. This will be your Achilles’ heel in this year. If you don’t treat eventual problems that may arise, you may have a high price to pay for later on. There is the danger of ending up isolated. The second half of the year this situation will improve and clear up.

Money: In this area there are astrologers who point to the appearance of a star called Gradual Breakdown. Its symbolism is related to the importance, in agriculture, of a good management of water for the irrigation of cultivated land. Here, water symbolizes money and the existing resources. If there isn’t a wise and careful management, all the best you have maybe reduced to almost nothing by the end of the year. This can be avoided if you stay alert.

Health: This is the strongest aspect of 2015 for you. Health problems are unlikely, and the body will have strength enough to react vigorously before whatever tries to disturb its natural balance.

Message: A BETTER YEAR  This year, you will have the star Lunar Virtue supporting you. It will be important, especially in crisis situations, to pay attention to other people’s feelings. If you do that, you will develop an exceptional ability to influence other people, which is half way to solving their problems.  2015 will be in general better than the previous. Although moderate, there will be more progress.

What you should strive for in 2015: the freedom to follow your heart

OX

ox2009 1997 1985 1973 1961 1949 1937

In the traditional Chinese philosophy the ends meet, and what is very negative holds inside the possibility of being positive.It may take the better part of the year to accomplish what you are trying to do but the end result will be in your favor.Focus, determination and following through with your plans will be a must if you want to reap the reward during the last quarter of the year.  Patience will be required on your part and you mustn’t be discouraged by any minor setback. If you complain or become nervous about the way things are going you will lose ground.  Patience will be required on your part and you mustn’t be discouraged by any minor setback. If you complain or become nervous about the way things are going you will lose ground.

Love: You will be more attractive and magnetic than usual. Eventual problems that may occur in this area will be more due to excess than due to default. Marriage and family life will be protected in 2015.

Career: Progress may be difficult in 2015. You may have the feeling that your efforts are worthless. In fact the most appropriate way of solving problems is not with effort, but with a careful and intelligent performance. Be discreet and try to improve your relationship with other people.  Like we said before, the situation may turn into a positive one in an instant.

Money: Even though you may feel a lot of pressure, don’t commit illicit or unlawful actions. You run the risk of paying too high a price for the smallest mistake. If you avoid risk investments or unusual initiatives, the year-end balance will be positive.

Health: The biggest danger in 2015 is that, in situations of great tension, health may become a weak link. That means this aspect of life should be a priority. If you lead a healthy life, both physical and mentally, you will feel stronger and that will enhance your ability to turn problems into opportunities.

Message: A YEAR OF CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES  The star Tail of the Leopard appears your fate. To step on the tail of the leopard, unadvertedly or not, means the fiercest ferocity will awake and turn against you. Due to the influence of this star, you should avoid provoking people or institutions.

What you should strive for in 2015: gathering information and putting it to good use

TIGER

tiger2010  1998  1986  1974  1962  1950  1938

At first glance, the energies of the Tiger and the Goat do not combine. The Goat is related to the peaceful development of life where extremes are avoided. The Tiger has a predisposition for great challenges and a radical approach to life. If you are a Tiger, 2015 may seem slow, dragging and uninteresting.  But with the passing of the months you will realize things are not quite like that. On the contrary, the year could become constructive and positive. The harder you try, the more you’ll achieve.The chaos of the past is coming to an end and although nothing ever runs smoothly in your life, there will be fewer surprises this year. You should concentrate on finishing what you start and broaden your creative horizons. You can count on others for help this year so don’t hesitate to ask for favors.  The very people that you approach will not only give you the support you need but will bring knowledge, ideas and cash to the table. Your cash should be put away for safekeeping this year.

Love: The star Heavenly Happiness symbolizes joy in marriage and a cheerful family. Its influence benefits sentimental life. If you are a single Tiger, the expectation of a new relationship or marriage will always be present.

Career: This is a clearly positive year, due, among other reasons, to a star which symbolism is linked to the so called “Flower of the Emperor”, that is said to have been planted inside the Forbidden City. It represents social superiority. This star’s appearance in your destiny points to the probability of a job promotion and the ability to deal with difficulties and controlling situations.

Money: The star Sudden Collapse in your destiny signals prudence. Its symbolism is connected with the image of a building collapsing from the lack of solid foundations. That is, if the fundamentals of projects and businesses aren’t solid enough, they may end up collapsing due to the slightest accident. Risk investments should be avoided.

Health: Your physical and mental health will be one of your best assets this year. Feeling stronger, you will face life in a more positive way. The rest (namely good luck) will come along.

Message: THE MAGIC OF SUCCESS According to the famous astrologer Rocky Sung, the magic word for you this year will be “concentration”. You will almost everything you yearn for through a correct mental attitude and activation of creativity.  But don’t go to the extreme and let yourself go blind because of your own ambition. That would be destroying the magic.

RABBIT

rabbit2011  1999  1987  1975  1963  1951  1939

2015 is clearly a favorable year you. You should make an effort not to let this potentially excellent period pass by without taking advantage of this opportunity.

The fact that good things begin to happen – even though they are not a product of personal effort but only of good fortune – will have a positive effect on your psyche, and that in turn will improve situations even more.

You will finally start to feel good again. Things will open up and your achievements will be plentiful. You will have added discipline and the way you handle things will bring about positive changes as long as you pay proper attention to small but important details.

The obstacles that you faced in the past will no longer plague you; you can coast along with ease. All the years you have spent helping others will now bring you the rewards you deserve.

Love:  Focus on preserving what you already have, more than on trying anything new.

Career:  2015 is a particularly auspicious year, excellent to launch a new project or business.

Money:  2015 is a good year for transactions and investments. The business intuition will be finely tuned.

Health:  Health itself won’t be a problem. But there is some predisposition for accidents, especially those related to water.

MessageA FAVORABLE YEAR  Even though the balance is clearly positive, there are still a lot of negative stars in the destiny of Rabbits for this year.  That means not everything will be a rose garden, but you must never loose heart in difficult moments, for soon everything will be positive again.  Even so, this will be a year for all things except to stand still. The more involvement there is in the action, the more possibilities you will have of living an unforgettable year full of events.

What you should strive for in 2015: greater self-confidence and powerful attitude

Your lucky numbers in 2015: 19,22,28,35,42,47

DRAGON

dragon2012  2000  1988  1976  1964  1952  1940

Sit back and take a bit of a breather during 2015. Stick to what you know best and complete whatever it is you’ve been working on but don’t start new ventures.  You will gain the most doing what is hardest for you to do: finishing what you’ve already started. Grant yourself that much-needed vacation.

Love:  The most significant threat in this field is the presence of the star Isolated Living. Its symbolism stems from the punishment that was inflicted, on ancient China, on those who acted against law and tradition – they were isolated from their family.  This star points to the need of paying due attention to others, and to expressing affection.

Career:  Your creative and innovating attitude will attract success, but you need to keep within the boundaries of what is reasonable.  Often the road to success will not be what you had imagined, but acting according to what is possible.  You may have to make some concessions now, so that later they can be rewarded with solid success.

Money:  Be wise.  The atmosphere of success will inevitably bring financial benefits.  But if you are not careful with your expenses, or if you make risky investments, you may reach the end of the year with a negative balance.

Health:  In many moments of the year you will live intensely, and you won’t always adhere to the basic principles of a healthy life. This will be your weakest link.  Make an effort to pay attention to your health.

Message: COURAGE AND SUPERIORITY  Beyond the great projects, professional or not, that mobilize your personal energies and creativity, don’t forget the human side of life. Namely the time we “waste” or “lose” with other people may not be immediately productive, but constitutes in itself a form of enrichment.

Best months of the year 2015: February, May, August and November.

What you should strive for in 2015: completion and accumulation.

Your lucky numbers in 2015: 1, 12, 22, 27, 41, 44

SNAKE

snake2013  2001  1989  1977  1965  1953  1941

The road to success and happiness is linked to an attitude focused on fulfilling your own tasks, solving your own problems, and avoiding issues that are specifically other people’s affairs.

Be careful with delivering criticism, for it may receive a bad reception.

The great card of the year is the appearance of the star Travelling Horse, that points to the possibility of voyages that will change life positively. Contacts abroad should be looked upon as positive and welcomed with arms wide open.

2015 will be also a year of cultivating and nurturing relationships that can be of use to you in the future. For now it’s a year to contemplate and let things settle down. You will have no need to rush and no need to feel anxious. For you the coast is clear to enjoy yourself for a change. Don’t get too comfortable, however. Trouble may be brewing at home where you least expect things to go wrong.

Love:  Don’t expect too much in this aspect. If anything positive is about to happen, it will occur spontaneously, and not by force.  On the other hand, relationships with other people (in marriage, family or friendship) should be as healthy and as natural as possible. It is convenient that any tension that arises will be immediately solved by an honest and enlightening conversation.

Career:  Follow a conservative and defensive strategy, and think more about preserving what you already have than about conquering new territories.  Progress and positive things will happen mostly due to hazard and good fortune, and not so much to effort.  In general the year is not favorable to launching new projects or taking initiatives, except if you are connected with foreign countries.

Money:  If you chose to lead a regular life, in which each month’s income is always greater than the expenses, there will be no problems.  But everything will be much more complicated if expenses are not under control or if there is the temptation of making large investments.

Health:  Health will be your strongest asset in 2015. You should be aware of that and make the most of their physical and psychological well-being.

MessageA TIME FOR TRAVELLING  It is believed that those of you born in the year of the Snake hold a strange magical power.  Some even think that one of the greatest challenges for you is learning how to deal with that inner strength. If you’re able to tune in with it, you can work miracles; if not, inexplicable problems will begin to arise.

If you realize you are after something, then you’re not in tune with your power.  But if you simply wait for what you deserve to come to you, miracles will begin to happen.

Horoscope 2015: DREAMS COME TRUE

HORSE (East) –  GEMINI (West)

horse2104  2002  1990  1978  1966  1954  1942  1930

The Horse is a sign of action and adventure, but its natives don’t often have the objective and subjective conditions to give free rein to their freedom philosophy and enjoy life.  This year everything tends to be in position and many of your dreams can come true.

Opportunities will abound, your qualities will be recognized and your actions welcomed. True, there will be problems and obstacles, but this year’s positive energy will allow you to overcome them easily.

You’ve come a long way and it’s time to stand up be counted. Make those moves you’ve been thinking about or plan that special getaway. The coast is finally clear and your versatility will enable you to get the most out of life.

Love:  People born in the year of the Horse are passionate and emotional by nature.  If you’re not currently in a relationship, this year will bring a lot of news. If you’re married, it will be a lively period, but maybe somewhat confused, for emotions will be running wild.

Career:  Two important and powerful favorable stars appear in your destiny in 2015, bringing you popularity, support from friends and colleagues, and the conditions to take your projects ahead.

The danger that exists is that the success atmosphere may turn against you. To avoid that happening you must make an effort to keep the most discreet attitude possible, and be alert to the feelings of jealousy that will certainly flourish around you.

Money:  The favorable atmosphere of the year will bring financial benefits, namely those stemming from a good professional situation.  However, Chinese astrologers advise you not to push your luck, and to try to avoid earning money through gambling or speculation.  Also, control your expenses.

Health:  The star called Spell of Sickness recommends that special attention should be paid to health-related issues.  With the liveliness of the year, you may have the tendency to neglect this essential aspect of life.

MessageDREAMS COME TRUE It is undisputedly a (potential) year of good luck, but that doesn’t mean that success and happiness are automatically guaranteed.  The cornerstone of Chinese astrology is balance. This means, too much good luck may also be a problem, if it’s not properly dealt with. The reins of good fortune must be under control, so that it doesn’t become unmanageable, or even destructive.
