2012 is the Year of the Dragon. I am born in 1972 which is Year of the Rat while my wife was born 1979 which is Year of the Sheep. This year:
The diligent Rat will be rewarded.
For the past couple of years, Rat persons have been navigating stormy weather. You have been encountering work, health, and relationship challenges around every corner. Fortunately, in 2012 a silver lining in the clouds reveals sunshine coming your way. This is especially true if you are in contact with a teacher, exam-giver, boss, interviewer, or benefactor who is born in the year of the Monkey. These people will reward your hard work and perseverance. The other positive zodiac sign for you is the Ox. Collaborating or spending time with an Ox person in northern regions can be beneficial - especially during the winter months. Usually, the Dragon is a compatible sign for Rat persons, however, do not expect too much from them during their year of challenge. Most importantly, Rat persons do well to avoid the Horse, Sheep, and Rooster, who tend to gossip and bring them down. Keep your distance from southern regions.
For a brand new start in 2012, Rat persons can enhance their happiness and reputation by placing the Chi Art, "5 Dimenions of Wealth and Luck" in their bedrooms. On a personal level, having a high master meditate on you or with you can improve your energies even more. Use the colors of gold and white for smoother sailing. Wearing quartz, pearl, citrine, and gold in custom-designed jewelry such as bracelets, necklaces, and earrings wealth and abundance for Rat persons.
The balanced Sheep enjoys peace of mind.
The Moon is shining for the Sheep in 2012. Falling in love, being moonstruck, and feeling romantic are part of the year's offerings of fantastical experiences - perhaps even marriage. The Moon also grants fortune, a promotion at work, or an upswing in business for Sheep. However, it is important to keep yourself balanced and not be consumed by the passions of a new love or over-confidence at work.
If you are consumed with love, it can become a distracting emotional roller coaster ride that blurs your judgment. The resulting lack of attention can lead to making poor decisions and embarrassing mistakes. Be careful to avoid errors or disputes that could lead to money loss, legal infractions, complaints, or finger-pointing.
Sheep persons tend to indulge in good food. This year, be aware that too much of a good thing can bring imbalance causing diarrhea or constipation. Learning moderation to control your hedonistic tendencies will keep you content.
To protect the Sheep from such struggles and jealousy, have a master prepare a personalized set of mantra charms to adjust this energy. If you are a Sheep, try to lessen your associations with persons born in the year of the Dog, Dragon, and Ox. Placing the Chi Art "Sacred Bamboo Forest" in your family entertainment room will remind you that appreciation of the simple things in life is the secret to attaining life's greatest treasure of all - peace of mind. Sheep persons benefit to travel east with Pig and Rabbit persons. The best colors for the Sheep are aquamarine and teal. Wearing jade and turquoise bracelets, necklaces, and earrings keeps Sheep persons balanced.
