This will be a demanding but productive month. However to get best results the Rat will need to concentrate on the areas he knows best and use his skills to good effect.
This is not a time when the Rat can afford to get distracted or take on activities in which he is less familiar. With a disciplined and focused approach the Rat can achieve much in this first Lunar month and win many plaudits for his efforts.
With an eye to his future, the Rat would also do well to take advantage of any training opportunities that may become available or take the time to improve on existing skills. The Rat’s domestic life will also be busy with many calls upon his time.
However, again he should stay organised and prioritise what needs to be done rather than spread his energies too widely. In addition to much happening domestically, the Rat can look forward to an active and rewarding social life with some particularly pleasant times spent with friends.
One of the strengths of the Ox is his tenaciousness. Once committed to a cause or objective he will pursue it with a dogged determination and will not rest until he has achieved what he wants. And, in 2018, his tenaciousness and drive will lead to some impressive results.
However, in the first lunar month, the Ox would do well to consider more closely his objectives for the year ahead and in particular seek the advice of those around. The Ox does like to keep his own counsel but at this time he will gain much by being more forthcoming and discussing his thoughts.
In addition to some ideas and suggestions he is given, he will also obtain useful support for some of what he has in mind. In essence, this month is a period for preparing the way for future progress and triumphs.
This will also be a positive month for social matters and, for those enjoying a romance and the love of another, this will be a happy and meaningful time. For the unattached, a party mid-month could lead to the Ox meeting someone who could in time become a good and firm friend.
This is a month for initiative and resolve. If there is some particular aim or goal that the Tiger is keen to reach either now or in the next few months, he should redouble his efforts to secure what he wants.
Positive action will be rewarded and start a momentum which will bring results. In particular, in his work, opportunities for progression are there or about to become available for those who want them while, for those seeking change, enquiries made can lead to some interesting possibilities.
It is also a good time for the Tiger to consider areas of self-development and, if there is training or skills he feels it would be helpful to obtain, again he should follow this up. On a personal level this too will be a positive month.
Family and friends will be most supportive and socially, all Tigers will find themselves much in demand with some interesting functions and parties to attend, and especially in the second and third weeks.
It has been said, if you don’t succeed, try, try and try again. And throughout 2018 the Rabbit should remember these words well. This can be a successful year for him but to make headway the Rabbit needs to persist and not be put off by any obstacles and setbacks that occur.
And, in this first lunar month, the Rabbit’s resolve and determination will be tested by some unexpected developments. However by making the most of the situations that occur, the Rabbit could find events start to move very much in his favour, and especially as far as his work prospects are concerned.
19th February to the end of the month can prove an interesting and positive time. The Rabbit does, though, need to be his careful self when dealing with money matters and should think twice if tempted with any particularly expensive whim. Without some restraint, he could find money spent on impulse could have been put to better use.
The Rabbit’s relationships with others will generally go well although when making arrangements, he does need to make sure instructions given are properly understood. Without care, misunderstandings could give rise to some tricky or embarrassing moments.
A pleasant and constructive month ahead. However the Dragon does need to set about his activities in an organised and methodical way. Whether in his work, domestic life or personal interests, when the Dragon has specific tasks he is eager to complete, he should give them his full attention or try to break them down into manageable sections. With good organisation the Dragon will find this a productive and useful month and allow him to accomplish much.
He also needs to deal with his correspondence (and emails) promptly to prevent them getting overlooked. Also, by doing so, his efficiency will be much appreciated by those who have dealings with him as well as increase his general standing.
The Dragon’s relations with family, friends and colleagues too will go well and should the Dragon need assistance or welcome advice on a certain matter, he should not hesitate to ask. His social life will be especially promising with the Dragon’s partner or a special friend being a great support over the month.
Already, for some Snakes, the favourable aspects of the Pig year have begun to weave their magic but, for those who may feel disillusioned about their present situation and desire change, the first lunar month can see some positive developments.
However, to fully benefit, these snakes do need to take some action to bring about the changes they want. For those seeking work or wanting to advance, they should follow up any possible openings that they see or begin to make inquiries while, for those with concerns in other areas of their life, they could find that talking these over will help to put them into perspective.
And for those desiring companionship and perhaps feeling lonely, these snakes should aim to go out to places where they are more likely to meet with others. However, the message of the month is purposeful action will help to bring about the improvement the snake desires as well as make him feel much more positive in himself.
The months ahead do hold good prospects for him and the snake has good reason to take heart and now proceed in a positive and optimistic fashion.
This will be a busy month for the Horse with much he will want to do or become involved with. However, despite his best endeavours and willingness to do so much, the Horse needs to be realistic in the commitments that he does take on and decide upon his priorities.
Without some structure and self-discipline, the Horse could find he is spreading his energies just too widely and accomplishing little as a result. In February he needs to keep focused and concentrate on specific duties and tasks. This way, he can look forward to some satisfying results.
The Horse should also take the time to discuss ideas and future plans with others and, by doing so, will receive some useful feedback and advice. The Horse’s relations with others will generally go well and a party or social occasion he goes to mid-month will be particularly memorable. He too will be pleased with some purchases he makes during the month, particularly clothing and items for his home.
This will be a variable month for the Goat. Work-wise there will be many pressures and demands and, at times, the Goat will feel frustrated and despairing. Progress will sometimes seem difficult and the Goat will feel some of his efforts are passing unnoticed.
However, the Goat should take heart. Although this may be an awkward month, it will allow him to get useful experience as well as give him the chance to re-evaluate his present position. And by giving thought to this, as well as rising to the challenges that occur, the Goat can gain and learn much from what happens.
And with 2018 holding out such good prospects, this lunar month will often be the springboard that the Goat needs to bring about the positive changes that lie ahead. In particular, it will help him to realise that to get what he wants, it is he who needs to take the action to bring about the change.
Also, when feeling under pressure, the Goat should not hesitate to talk over his concerns with others and ask for help. In addition, he should set some time aside for his interests. As the Chinese proverb states, ‘One joy scatters one hundred griefs,’ and, over the month, his interests as well as love and support of those close to him can turn out to be those so important joys.
The Monkey is both resourceful and highly enterprising. However, in this firts lunar month, he will need to exercise care and caution. While progress is possible, this is not a month to take risks or push his luck too far.
Instead, his best results will come from solid effort in specific areas and preferably those in which he can make the most effective use of his skills and experience. Also, throughout the month, the Monkey needs to consult with others and remain mindful of their views.
This again is not a time for jumping to conclusions or assuming he has automatic support for some of his plans. However, with care, the Monkey will be generally pleased with what he does get done and, on a personal level, can look forward to some pleasing times with both family and friends.
A break or outing taken towards the end of the month could be especially enjoyable as well as doing the Monkey much good.
Being so well organised and methodical, the Rooster likes to plan out his activities and have a sense of direction. However events in this first lunar month could cause him to look again at some of his undertakings as well as question some of his plans.
And this time of reappraisal will prove especially significant. In considering his plans for the near future, he should ask if what he envisages is actually right for him and is what he really wants to do.
He should also talk to his loved ones and get their opinions as well. However, by taking the time to examine his current activities and future plans, he will find some interesting thoughts will occur which can also do much to enthuse and excite him.
This is a month to take stock and to look and plan ahead. The Rooster should also spend some time on leisure pursuits and on activities he will enjoy and can help him relax. Although he may have much he feels he has to do, he must put himself and his well-being first and, by unwinding and giving time to himself, he will also feel on better form.
The Dog is a great one for nurturing ideas but now is the time when the Dog should take action to advance an idea or plan he has been thinking about. By doing so some interesting developments could result.
Also, the Dog should show a certain flexibility in his attitude. During the month some unexpected chances could come the dog’s way and, by being prepared to consider and take advantage of these, the Dog could find he is paving the way for some exciting opportunities in the near future.
If not, and he becomes too preoccupied with his own concerns, a certain edginess could creep into some relationships which, with time and forethought, could have been avoided.
In this lunar month the dog does need to balance out his activities. Overall, this will be an interesting and positive month and one which will, as the year progresses, have some significant repercussions.
When the Pig has set his sights on a certain objective, he will invariably work steadily until he has achieved his aim. And, in this lunar month, the Pig will find his tenacious approach will be well rewarded.
As the month starts, he should set himself some targets or goals to reach and take action. In his work, much can be accomplished while for those wanting to improve or supplement their income in some way, they should consider ways in which they could use a special interest or skills they have.
Some creative thinking could yield some interesting possibilities. Throughout the month the Pig does, though, need to set time aside to be with his loved ones, be prepared to talk over ideas and be forthcoming over plans.
By making the effort, relations can be strengthened, greater rapport established and also some enjoyable occasions will result. The last week of the month will be particularly positive for domestic and social matters.
