‘Earth Pig’ brings good vibes, luck
LOOK: For luck Allen said the wonderful personality and energies of the ruling animal would influence the coming period that starts on Feb. 5, 2019 and ends on Jan. 24, 2020. “The Pig or Boar is a robust and happy animal. It is considered the ‘laughing Buddha’ of the Chinese zodiac for its naturally pleasant and carefree demeanor,” said Allen. She added the Earth Pig’s charismatic, positive and reasonable traits allowed it to move ahead with enthusiasm to achieve its goals. According to the feng shui master, the Five Elements—Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water—are present in the Year of the Earth Pig, “indicating that great opportunities are available for everyone.” “In 2019, overall, most of the animal signs can expect a joyful year. There should be remarkable force, enthusiasm and excitement everywhere,” forecasted Allen, while adding, “It’s just up to every individual to know how to seize this.” But she said that with the energy of abundance indicated by the Earth Pig, everyone should be mindful of managing resources as seasons of plenty may be followed by money losses. “Fortunately, the strong presence of the Earth element during the year will have a stabilizing effect on the other energies at play,” said Allen. Despite the promise of abundance, Allen said this is not the year to take risks. “Although the feng shui winds are promising, this is the year to be careful on a personal level. Consider your actions carefully and stick with what’s more familiar instead of taking risks this year. Manage your finances, and guard against losses,” she said. Food businesses such as restaurants and commissaries will prosper this year. Fire element industry businesses such as entertainment and fuel are also expected to have good opportunities all year long. Allen said social media will continue to break the traditional way of marketing and doing business. “People from all walks of life will continue to patronize it and shift to e-commerce businesses,” she added. The Year of the Earth Pig does not offer good tidings to married people due to issues brewing or getting more intense between in-laws, as well as possible third-party interventions and sex scandals. Due to the presence of the Misfortune star in the Matriarch direction or Southwest sector this 2019, Allen said there will be an expected decline of women in power. Leaders may face defiant and unruly subordinates. Allen reminded people to beware of sicknesses related to heart, nerves and blood. Lucky colors are red, green, beige and cream. Marites Allen’s forecast for each animal sign in the Year of the Earth Pig: Rat (1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008) Great fortune combined with networking ability will help bring about profits in 2019. Love and career prospects will bring so much happiness during the year. Ox (1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009) Threat of the Illness star requires the Ox to be more mindful of his physical and mental health. Practice tolerance and re-focus your attention on caring about yourself.
