KUALA LUMPUR: Those born in the year of the Goat will be the luckiest people this year, which is the year of the Fire Monkey.
According to a feng shui expert, the Lunar New Year, which begins on Monday, bodes well for people born in the year of the Goat, one of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac.
Founder of the Xuan Jixuan Feng Shui Consultation Centre Jane Hor (pic) said the year of the Monkey was the best time for these people to showcase their talents in career, finances and education.
“In the order of the 12 zodiac animals, the goat comes before the monkey and is seen as the closest to the monkey.
“They should not waste this opportunity, whether in their career or investments, as there is a good chance of getting a salary increment, promotion or profits in their businesses,” she said.
This year would also be good for people born in the year of the Rat, Ox and Pig, she said.
“They will find it easy to get help from their friends in their business.
“However, they should be careful in their speech as their frankness may upset other people and they would be ignored by their colleagues,” she added.
For those born in the year of the Tiger, Dragon, Monkey and Dog, this year would not be an exceptional one.
“Those who are employed will have to work harder this year as luck does not side with them,” she said.
“They should do more charity work and help the needy as this will have an effect on their lives in the year of the Fire Monkey,” she said.
People born in the year of the Rooster and the Rabbit will find it easy to get help from their friends or even strangers.
“For those born in the year of the Rooster, they may face some challenges in their careers, especially if they are in real estate and insurance, but this will only be temporary,” said Hor, adding that their situation would improve in the second half of the year.
She added that people born in the year of the Snake would get to know more people, and if single, there was a chance they would meet their loved ones or marry this year.
“Like people born in the year of the Rat, Ox and Pig, those born in the year of the Snake are advised to be careful in their speech,” she said. — Bernama
