As per the Chi­nese lu­nar cal­en­dar, t he year of the wooden green horse ( Jan­uary 31, 2014 on­wards) brings changes in the for­tunes of all zo­diac signs. In this ar­ti­cle, I will take you through the for­tunes of each one of them. Should you sit on the fence and tread care­fully or gam­ble and gal­lop ahead fear­lessly? Check out what’s in store for you and how you should make the most of this year:

Dog

Ac­cord­ing to the Chi­nese lu­nar cal­en­dar, your zo­diac sign is dog if you are born after Fe­bru­ary 4 in the fol­low­ing years: 1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, and 2006. (If you were born on the fourth or be­fore your sign is chicken/rooster and not dog).

The Chi­nese con­sider both horse and dog aus­pi­cious bear­ers of good for­tune. They are sin­cere, in­tel­li­gent an­i­mals. Ea­ger to serve their master, they share the same traits of loy­alty and obe­di­ence. Need­less to say, they get along, mak­ing this a favourable year for the dog.

Ca­reer: The fast-paced year of the green horse will be rel­a­tively busy and de­mand­ing for those with the zo­diac sign of dog. With some con­vic­tion and risk tak­ing, you can achieve new heights at your work­place. The time has come to lap up op­por­tu­ni­ties and prove that you are a ca­pa­ble per­son. Ap­ply for jobs/posts that prom­ise not just money but po­si­tion and pres­tige. Get out of your comfort zone and net­work with those who don’t be­long to your ‘pack’.

Money: Your l ong- t er m in­vest­ments will pay off well and this is a good year to save a bone or two for a rainy day. Live well within your means and plan for your fu­ture.

Health tip: Keep an eye on your diet, es­pe­cially while trav­el­ling.

Pig

Your zo­diac sign is pig if you are born after Fe­bru­ary 4 in the fol­low­ing years: 1911, 1 923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, and 2007.

If you were born on the fourth or be­fore, your sign is dog and not pig).

The pig and the horse have noth­ing in com­mon but, sur­pris­ingly, they aren’t in­com­pat­i­ble. The horse is an ad­ven­tur­ous an­i­mal while the pig prefers to spend its time in­doors. They stay out of each other’s way and co­ex­ist peace­fully. In com­par­i­son to the year of the snake, this shall prove to be a much more fruit­ful year for the pig.

Ca­reer: I f you are an em­ployee, ex­pect a raise or a pro­mo­tion. If you are in­volved in business, now is the time to ex­plore new business con­nec­tions, make contacts and ven­ture in to new fields. Job op­por­tu­ni­ties abound, so send out those CVs. Your scin­til­lat­ing so­cial life will boost your ca­reer as you shine in lead­er­ship roles and po­si­tions. How­ever, de­cep­tion is on the cards for you. So be­ware of jeal­ous co-work­ers and ma­nip­u­la­tive ‘friends’.

Money: Money mat­ters tend to be tough this year.

Health tip: Pigs will tend to ne­glect per­sonal health. Stress makes them prone to fre­quent burnouts. Re­fuel with med­i­ta­tion and short breaks.
