Chinese Astrology Forecast for 2005

Monday, January 31, 2005
By: Joey Yap

Rat (1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996)

Rats are also regarded as 'Offending the Grand Duke' in 2005. This is because the celestial animal of Rat is in a 'Destruction' formation with the Rooster in the study of Chinese Astrology. This is why you should be cautious of legal troubles, gossips, slander and arguments. Relationship matters will also prove tiresome. It would be advisable to take the passive route and keep a low profile. Destruction could also mean ambush. In business or at work, do your best not to offend anyone. Maintain cordial harmonious communications at all times. Ladies born in the year of the Rat are more fortunate than the Men.

There is a Tai Yin (Moon) Star in the Rat palace this year. Tai Yin favors financial affairs. This star particularly benefits the ladies. Men on the other hand, should be careful of problems created by the opposite sex.

Ox(1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997)

There is a nobleman star in the Ox palace this year. This denotes help from people in all endeavours. There is also a 'San Tai' (Three Stages) star in the Ox palace that represents unseen assistance from mentors or superiors. This year particularly favours those who are in governmental posts or working in large corporations. Good fortune also smiles down on those of you who are undertaking exams, as this year brings to you good teachers.

On the downside, there is also a minor auxiliary star called 'Guan Hu' (Officer Decree) that creates hassles and disruptions. This year may be chaotic and disorientating for some. It is quite easy to get stressed out and fall ill. So do take care of your mental health. There are also two negative stars - Blood Knife and Flying Dagger in your palace this year symbolizing potential health risks. It is best to do some charitable work at the start of the year to minimize this possible impact.

Tiger(1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998)

There is a strong noble star residing in the Tiger palace this year. This denotes that people born in the Year of the Tiger will receive the help of the Nobleman (strong, helpful people) luck. All negative matters can be resolved harmoniously at the end. Problems carried forward from last year (Year of the Monkey) can be resolved this year with help from outside parties.

Rabbit (1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999)

Rabbits face a 'clash' with the Rooster. Which is why the most detrimentally affected animal in the Rooster year is the Rabbit. This star clashes with the Grand Duke. Especially for elderly folks, this year you need to watch out for health issues. Even the common flu can sometimes take months to heal. It would be best to adopt a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Business people, as this year has a direct impact on your Celestial sign, do be very careful of rash or hasty decisions. Things can often seem too good to be true. Good deals can turn to out to be lemons and result in you losing money. So the advice here is to stay calm and keep your eyes peeled.

This year will likely see you moving houses, changing jobs or even changing your work place. Somehow the year seems restless and you are always on the move. Remember, it may be a good idea to think twice before making any serious decisions.

Women born in the year of the Rabbit and who are expecting this year should take note of their health especially during the months when the baby will be due. If your health is poor, there might be complications and you may want to consider opting for a caesarean birth.

Dragon(1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000)

There are two very favorable stars shining in the Dragon palace this year - the Zi Wei (Purple Star) and the Long De (Dragon Virtue). These two stars, together with the fact that Dragons are 'combining' with the Grand Duke (Rooster) of the year denotes that Dragons will enjoy quite a fruitful and prosperous year ahead!

Those who are employed may enjoy a raise or promotion while those in their own businesses have the potential for a new ventures and increased financial success. The combination between Dragon and Rooster (Year) denotes that you are able to receive favors and admired by those around you.

Though everything appears to be smooth sailing, your financial wealth at the end of the year may ot be what you had foreseen it to be. This is because there is a 'Frightened Goat' star hidden in the background of this palace. This denotes the possibility of 'losing' money without realizing it which could shock you when you take stock of your situation at the end of the 2005. However this is not altogether detrimental and only serves as a minor setback. Be sure that you take note of your good fortune and make full use of a good year ahead.

Snake(1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001)

The Snake is in a 'Combination' formation with the Rooster. The snake is a Fire Star while the Rooster is a Wealth star. This denotes two possibilities - the attainment of 'Wealth' (because Metal is the Wealth element of Fire) and the good fortune of enjoying a loving relationship. Combinations denote an affinity with someone, especially for Men born in the Snake year.

Because of the combination with the Grand Duke, this year brings many opportunities in terms of business and career. Always remember, good fortune only comes to those who are prepared. You need to take action when opportunity knocks. If you procrastinate, you will miss the boat.

Horse(1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990)

The Fu Xing (Prosperous Star) shines brightly in the Horse palace this year. People born in the year of the Horse will enjoy a trouble free year ahead in most endeavours. You will be making new friends and pursuing new ventures. This year there will be opportunities for you to showcase your talents and receive recognition for past efforts. Others will take notice of your contribution and give you the respect you rightfully deserve.

The Tian De (Heavenly Virtue) Star shines in your palace this year. This denotes that your good deeds and past contribution and efforts are now bearing fruits. You will reap the rewards this year. However if you have not done much to contribute in the past, your rewards this year will not be as great.

The only minor setback of the year is caused by the presence of the Xian Chi (Salty Pool) star, which denotes romance related problems. Thus this year, though it is good for most aspects of your life, it is not as conducive for relationship matters. If your bonds with your partner are not strong, break-ups or heartbreaks can be expected. Therefore it is best to control your emotions this year.

Goat(1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991)

There more inauspicious stars than good stars residing in the Goat palace this year. People born under this sign should be cautious in all business endeavours and preferably take a back seat when it comes to high profile positions. It is best to stay humble and offer others the limelight instead. Though the auspicious star "Eight Seats" helps boost your status and social recognition, it is best not to take credit to avoid the potential jealousy of others - a prospect that could lead to a lot of unnecessary annoyance.

The starting of the year will be difficult and filled with aggravations. This should level out towards the later part of the year. It is also not a good year to pursue relationships as this year there is a Lonesome Star residing in your Life Palace. This star does not foster good relationship ties. Do be careful whilst travelling as this year you are prone to injuries or accidents.

Monkey (1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992)

People born under this sign must be cautious of health concerns. There is an illness star residing in the Monkey palace in 2005. Elderly folks especially should undertake regular medical check-ups as early as possible in the year. Younger folks are not exempted from the influence of this illness star. You too should watch your diet and maintain a regular routine of exercise and the necessary health precautions.

There is a 'Death God' star in the Monkey Palace this year. This star does not mean death but rather it is star that denotes disappointments. Therefore there is a high possibility that major projects you will be handling will encounter much obstruction and be plagued with trouble, possibly leading to failure.

You need to keep an eye on the person you select as a partner for your projects or at work. Perhaps this is where the problem will start. It is important to make sure all documentation and agreements are clear to avoid potential miscommunications.

Rooster (1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993)

Those born in the Year of the Rooster are considered 'Offending The Grand Duke' (Fan Tai Sui) in 2005. This denotes that it will not be a smooth year for various financial activities. You also need to be cautious when travelling as this year suggests a greater tendency for possible injuries from accidents.

Fortunately, there are also two 'auspicious' stars shining in the Rooster palace this year. These are 'The General Star' and the 'Golden Lock'. The General Star governs 'authority' and the Golden Lock brings the Rooster opportunities in business. Thus, even though in 2005 Roosters offend the Grand Duke, the end result of the year could very well be favourable.

Pay attention to these problematic months - February, April and August.

Dog (1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994)

People born in the year of the Dog are also regarded as 'Offending the Grand Duke' in 2005. This is because in the study of BaZi, the Dog and Rooster are in a 'Harm' formation. Harm in this case denotes 'betrayal' or disappointments in relationships. Particularly for ladies who are born in the year of the Dog; this year might not be such a wonderful year for fostering good relationships. You need to control your temper and rein in your suspicious nature. Men who are born in the year of the Dog however, will fare better. Although there may still be small spots of trouble, you will probably triumph in the end, resulting in a promotion or even a raise.

Unavoidably, there will be much gossiping, back biting (and in severe cases - legal complications) and perhaps even some financial loss. As long as you mind your own business and avoid getting involved in other people's issues, everything will be fine and peaceful for you.

Pig (1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995)

The stars shine bright for those who are born in the year of the Pig this year. This formation is called "Lu Ma Jiao Ma' - Prosperous Horse on the Saddle - which is auspicious for ushering good returns, financially speaking. Since this is a 'travelling horse' formation, this refers to 'moving wealth' - meaning money in investments or in trading. Fixed or slow moving wealth - such as your salary or residual income will not benefit from this formation. This year also favours the starting of new projects and businesses. There is also a star called "Di Jie - Earth Relief' in the Pig palace this year. This star helps resolve old lingering issues. If you had a problem carried forward from the previous year - like an old debt, favours to be repaid or old health problems - this year should see a resolution.
