After my general predictions for the year 2004, here are my individual predictions for the 12 animal signs in the Chinese Zodiac.
(Years of the Rat: 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996)
The Rat has an excellent combination of stars in 2004. If romance is at the top of your list, this is a great year for marriage, especially in August. However, be very cautious in your financial and legal affairs in the months of June and July. Your better months are January, April, August and December. For your protection, you should wear a jade amulet of a Dragon and Monkey at all times.
Your lucky sector is the north (352.5º - 7.5º) of the home. Place a figure of a Rat here! The location of the south is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office.
(Years of the Ox: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997)
Let’s all welcome 2004 for the Ox, as the last year was one of the worst periods for him. The Ox relies on his systematic, trustworthy, meticulous, patient and cautious virtues, which help him a lot. Although the Ox and Monkey are fairly compatible in many senses, the year may bring with it some misadventure. For your protection, you should wear/keep a jade amulet of a Rat at all times through the year. Your better months are January, May, September and December. Do not take risks in June and July for they bring delays and setbacks, chaos and confusion. Place a Wu-Lou by your bedside this year.
Your lucky sector is the northeast (22.5º - 37.5º) of the home or office. Place a figure of an Ox here! The southwest is in conflict with your earthly branch, therefore, avoid using this sector either as a bedroom or study/home office. If this is your working area and you cannot avoid it, place ceramic ornaments in the northeast corner of the room.
(Years of the Tiger: 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998)
Since you form a penalty relationship with the Snake and the Monkey, it may be an uncomfortable and disappointing year for the Tiger. Personal affairs will run smoothly, business can be successful and goals attained if you are careful. Do not overspend or overexert yourself or the year will be laced with disappointments. Drive carefully and don’t speculate. For your protection, you should have a jade amulet of a Dragon and Rat with you at all times through the year.
Your lucky sector is the northeast (52.5º- 67.5º) as we have the star #8 residing here for 2004. Enhance this area with eight crystals tied together or a jade crystal tree to maintain wealth and prosperity.
