To usher in the year of the Pig, we asked a Feng Shui Master to share his insights on the Chinese zodiac forecast for 2019.

Chinese Zodiac Forecast 2019 Year of the Pig

Animal Sign: Rat

Birth Years: 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960, 1948

Outlook for 2019: A year of positive energies especially for the men who will meet a lot of helpful people and receive good career advancement as the Sun and Heavenly Nobleman are here to stay. Rat people including ladies will enjoy good romance luck due to Peach Blossom star. This star is exceptionally beneficial if you are in the showbiz or frontline marketing, sales and public relations departments.

On the flip side, if you are attached or married, please be mindful of indecent proposal or unnecessary temptations as the presence of Salt Pool star denotes sexual scandal. Apart from all this, parents need to keep a close eye on the child who is born in 2008 in terms of the behavior and focus in their studies since Sky Emptiness and Bad Qi will create an undesirable consequence. Luckily, Heaven Doctor is a white knight that will come to save you out of any predicament.

Animal Sign: Ox

Birth Years: 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, 1949

Outlook for 2019: Do an overall health check and blood test this year if you are of age 55 and above. People born in 1973 will expect some mood swing and an increase in stress level at work and at home. Be very mindful if your job requires you to handle sharp object. This is due to the presence of Flying Blade and Funeral Door stars. They may sound scary but what they also do is to lower your immunity and energy level. As long as you exercise and monitor your health, things will be fine. Avoid attending funeral wakes if you are not in good spirits.

Nevertheless, in 2019, money and career luck are marvellous for the Ox because Heaven Wealth and Tai Ji Nobleman have arrived to increase your fame and sources of income. You can take the opportunity to start an investment plan. However, if you are contemplating of starting a business partnership or joint venture with an associate, do ensure that the terms and conditions stipulated in the agreement have been counterchecked since the Dividing Edge, which is known as the star that attracts disputes, is present in your zodiac sign.

Animal Sign: Tiger

Birth Years: 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950

Outlook for 2019: It is a blessed year for the ladies in terms of their pursuit in study, career and business opportunities as the Moon is shining at them. However, one thing to be cautious of is the presence of these 3 scandalous stars known as the Hook, Solitary and Lasso, which easily create havocs and cause one to be entangled in messy love affairs involving 3rd party. The men are also not spared from it. In order to prevent such incidents from happening, which is going to be detrimental to your own psychological well-being, you need to be very firm in your approach and not swayed by flatteries.

For all Tigers, the Grade-A star, Emperor Seal Nobleman, will bring you promotion opportunity, recognition and fatter bonuses. Investment and windfall luck will be enhanced. People who plan to start-up new business should grab this opportune time to have a better head start. However, do be realistic when you are setting your goals in 2019. Do not be over-ambitious and do not over-stretch yourself since the presence of Death God can lead to stress and insomnia plus disappointments if you do not make calculated moves.

Animal Sign: Rabbit

Birth Years: 2011, 1999, 1987,1975, 1963, 1951, 1939

Outlook for 2019: A positive year ahead for the Rabbit in terms of career advancement and money luck because of the presence of Golden Chest and General Star. Those in business can expect more opportunities flowing in with an increase in profit. For those working, especially in the government sectors, your boss will entrust you with new project and is prepared to reward you. It is very likely you are going to assume new leadership position. Students will benefit from the star 3 Stage as it governs good academic achievement and support from good teachers.

On the other hand, due to the arrival of 5 Ghost and Official Talisman please be tactful in your speech and behavior in the public especially if you achieve success at work because these 2 stars attract petty people who are jealous of you being better than them. In addition, do not attempt to challenge the laws, evade fines and taxes or else you will be easily caught and get penalized. Remain honest, humble, sincere and stay grounded. This will help you immensely in achieving your next milestone in life.

Animal Sign: Dragon

Birth Years: 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952, 1940

Outlook for 2019: For those who are in a relationship, expect to tie the nuptial knot since Romance star and Nuptial Bird have flown in to your zodiac. In case you have plans to find an overseas job or explore pursuing your study in other countries, the energy of Saddle star is supportive of you doing that. In fact, if you would like to experience a change in living or working environment locally, you can choose to do so.

Do be mindful of arguments in office and minor accidents at workplace. Because of Death Talisman, it is advisable that you try to stay away from funeral wakes or visits to hospital if possible because it can have a negative impact on your luck and energy level. Presence of Small Loss star will cause you to misplace valuable item. Also, the chances of getting fines like parking tickets are high. Fortunately, there are Month Virtue and Tai Ji Nobleman stars that will come in to lend you a hand when you are in trouble. They are very powerful positive stars to tide you through any challenges.

For those born in 1953, if you are driving or planning to self-drive during travel, please take extra precautions to drive carefully. This is a year that you are also more prone to accidents and sicknesses relating to the heart and blood.
