The Chinese Solar New Year, or the beginning of the Chinese Spring Season began on February 4th. The Chinese Lunar New Year, the official Chinese New Year begins on the New Moon, February 13th/14th.
The Chinese Solar calendar marks this year as the year of 8 Earth Star. What this means for the world in general is that financial fortunes are at a turning point. Money is seriously restricted. Large financial interests and businesses that have run into trouble are now running the risk of collapse while new and far sighted ventures that are starting up may look forward to coming years of growth and prosperity. In spite of obvious difficulties this is a good year to start up a futuristic venture. Old business models, especially in publishing and other forms of media, are destined to fail unless they radically regroup. It is time to plant a seed and tend it carefully. Don't expect profits soon. Look forward. The entire financial picture of the world until the year 2024 is at a turning point this year. The old models of business are crumbling.
Real estate and banking are not in good shape this year. Be very careful in these areas.
Each of us was born under one of the 9 stars. This gives each of us a different fortune for the year.
To find your fortune based on your Chinese birth star use the following table. Note that the Chinese Solar Year begins on February 4th, not January 1st. If you were born between January 1st and February 4th, use the year prior to your birth to find your Chinese birth star. The nine birth stars are listed below for the years 1970 through 1978. If you were not born between 1970 and 1978 find your birth star by adding or subtracting 9 or a multiple of 9. For example, if you were born in 1965 add 9 to 1965 to get 1974 to find your birth star. Also note that the birth stars are not the same for men and women. The birth stars are as follows:
The birth star of 1970 for men is 3 Wood Star, and for women is 3 Wood Star.
The birth star of 1971 for men is 2 Earth Star, and for women is 4 Wood Star.
The birth star of 1972 for men is 1 Water Star, and for women is 5 Earth Star.
The birth star of 1973 for men is 9 Fire Star, and for women is 6 Metal Star.
The birth star of 1974 for men is 8 Earth Star, and for women is 7 Metal Star.
The birth star of 1975 for men is 7 Metal Star, and for women is 8 Earth Star.
The birth star of 1976 for men is 6 Metal Star, and for women is 9 Fire Star.
The birth star of 1977 for men is 5 Earth Star, and for women is 1 Water Star.
The birth star of 1978 for men is 4 Wood Star, and for women is 2 Earth Star.
The fortunes for the 9 birth stars.
1 Water Star this year may look forward to imaginative new ideas and romantic affairs coming up. Moving, communicating, meeting people and traveling is favored. Be careful to read the small print when getting into contracts, however. Your imaginative expectations may exceed reality and you may regret what you get into in the long run. Pay attention to details. This is a good year for you to engage in creative projects and ventures.
2 Earth Star this year looks forward to serious challenges. You are not as secure as you may wish. Be careful to avoid clashes with others. Avoid putting yourself in a precarious position and making trouble for yourself. This is an important year to consolidate and save up. You may gain insight and learn from whatever difficulties you face. Family problems will need your attention.
3 Wood Star this year may look forward to fame and recognition from creative work done in the past. On the other hand trouble that may have been lurking underground last year can come up unexpectedly and bring you into conflict or embarrisment. Then again, there may come about an unexpected and welcome love affair. This is a year of surprises. Make yourself happy and take advantage of every opportunity, some of which will come from out of the blue.
4 Wood Star this year may look forward to running into a groove. This may be desirable or undesirable depending on whether you have found your niche. If desirable you may expect to travel and for your affairs to run much more smoothly and predictably this year. If not so desirable you may feel that you are stuck in a rut and will have to put up with delays. Someone in your circle may be emotionally troubled this year. Try to stay objective about it.
5 Earth Star this year may look forward to slow, steady progress. It is a good year for settling down, getting married, making commitments, building a home or a business and making money if you are comfortable with plodding along. One thing you can be sure of is that you will be better off one way or another by the end of this year.
6 Metal Star this year may look forward to sudden developments. Take bold measures. You are resilient this year. Your actions can cause your conditions to change dramatically. Be careful not to act out of anger, however. If you do you will shoot yourself in the foot. It is time for you to celebrate life and make yourself happy. You have great ability to take calculated risks. Think creatively.
7 Metal Star this year may look forward to a relatively easier time than before. The ways are opening for you with plenty of coming and going, communicating and traveling, and greater ease in your relationships. Take advantage of all opportunities that come your way. You have good chances to prosper this year.
8 Earth Star is at a turning point this year. You are at a pivotal point. You may feel seriously hemmed in and will be impatient with others and with circumstances beyond your control, and may very well be prone to fits of anger. You may feel that you are under too much pressure. If you entertain conflict with someone close to you the relationship may be seriously damaged or break up altogether. If you get into conflict at work you will run the risk of misfortune. If, on the other hand, you are fortunate enough to start a well thought out new venture it will last a long time and you will prosper over the coming years. If you want to move house don't do it unless you are planning to move far away. The part of wisdom says stay centered.
9 Fire Star this year may look forward to being at a great advantage in just about everything. This year favors creative activity, making bold decisions, taking the lead and asserting yourself. You may confidently shine like the sun in the clear sky. Look your best. You may entertain many people and be admired by them all while comfortably holding them at arms length. Everyone will admire you. If you are an actor or artist, this promisses to be a very good year for you. In your more intimate relationships this is the time for you to communicate your desires so that you move in a good direction in the future. Be creative.
