Gong Xi Fa Choi!
Kung Hai Fat Choi!
Happy Chinese New Year!
As a confused Hong Konger-cum-Singaporean I don't always remember the proper greeting for CNY, but let me tell you, the sentiment is there. Beside the Love Letters, my most favorite part of the holiday is reading predictions for the year ahead. So far I've already learned that this is certainly not the year to have children as goat babies have a reputation for being like sheep, followers who are easily manipulated. Yeesh!
So what else can we expect from the year of the Green Wooden Goat?
This is to be a yin year, meaning we can expect peace, harmonious co-existence and tranquility. The goat also represents passive and nurturing times intended to help with the healing process. For those who trust in goodness, happiness and success will follow. There will be an emphasis placed on joining forces to fight evil and destruction though peaceful channels.
This is a year to use mental abilities over brute force. Those who wish to be aggressive may find themselves out-maneuvered by strategy and common sense.
On the home front, it is a time to unite to instill loyalty and discipline. This is a good year to make amends for broken promises.
