Year of the Rooster
forecasts
Continued from page 18
restless, Water Dog, take care not to act rashly. Make a
plan for a soft landing spot before jumping ship;
meanwhile, you may see your current situation improve.
n Wood Dog: You may find yourself dragging due to the
demands of the Rooster Year, Wood Dog. Engaging in
exercise or making time for recreation will help increase
your stamina and strength and decrease your stress level
to make for a much more pleasant year.
n Fire Dog: Though the
year will have its ups and
downs, socially you are flying
high. People find you
especially fetching in the
coming months, thanks to
your magnetic personality.
You may find it worth your
time to pursue relationships
with those who spark your interest.
n Earth Dog: You have a strong moral compass and an
outspoken nature. Use these assets to speak out against
any injustice you witness. Your bark can be a strong one in
making the world a better place.
w
The Pig
After a tough 2016, you should find much improvement
in the Year of the Rooster. But your fortunes will depend
on you individual effort. Productive Pigs will find
themselves reaping rewards for their labors, while lazier
ones will be left wanting.
n Metal Pig: Keep from becoming ensnared in the
problems of others. While lending a sympathetic ear to
another’s troubles is admirable, becoming embroiled in
their drama is another thing altogether and will only lead
to headaches.
n Water Pig: In the
relative quiet of the Year of
the Rooster you will have a
clear head, making it an ideal
time to re-evaluate goals and
create new ones. Consider
making changes in areas that
make you unhappy and start
taking steps to make it happen.
n Wood Pig: Be cautious about the opinions of others.
Check to be sure there is not an ulterior motive before
accepting their advice, as they may be interested in their
own advancement, which could be to the detriment of
yours.
n Fire Pig: Keep plugging away to achieve your goals,
Fire Pig! While you may feel, despite increased efforts,
that you are running on a treadmill and not making prog-
ress, in truth you are gaining valuable experience and
knowledge and are poised to make great gains in the
future.
n Earth Pig: You may feel an increased stability in
2017. Take advantage by working on your relationships.
Finding mutually enjoyable activities is a great way to
have open and direct communication while having fun.
