This year we are adding to the Annual Forecast with a breakdown for all the Chinese Zodiac signs. This is an extension of the Forecast posted a few days ago. We will be discussing each animal, areas of priority for 2018 and general points to be mindful about.
Remember if you are born in January or February you may be the animal of the previous year as the Chinese zodiac works with the Chinese calendar, where the new year is usually in February. Occasionally there are dates in January also. If you can’t see your exact year below, remember add or minus 12 years to check your year. For example if look at Rat, 1924 is as far back as listed, if you minus 12 = 1912. Therefore if your born in 1912 March, you are a Rat.
Rat. Born 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996.
For the Rat in 2018 the key themes to address and illuminate include Foundations, Academic Success, Romance and The Unknown.
What this translates to for Rat centres around how sound is your life? Where is there stability? What do you see for the outcomes from, in particular, Academic Success and Romance? When entering into 2018 be mindful of the Foundation you already have and how you will integrate additional areas and development. How will the transitions from what has been to new terms be easier, simplified and not a repetition of old ways and perspectives. This is where The Unknown will support you opening your perspective to engage without sabotage. Essentially if you can trust the surprise events in 2018 and work with them, you will add to your success, as the Universe supports you in calling in future success.
Ox. Born 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997.
For the Ox in 2018 key themes to address and illuminate include Change and Profound Shifts, Rebirth, Creation and Critical Assessment.
For the Ox, working with others is a large part of next year, taking you to the edge and then a little further of your comfort zone. Your resistance will be high as you won’t immediately be able to see the benefits. However, if you are willing to release the old and walk toward embracing some new, to let out a charge of joy at engaging, this will add to the depth of your year. Take your time considering as you like to, although being timely will ease the burden of fear. Use time to be precise, to keep your equilibrium with the understanding that self sacrifice may not be the only or best solution. This is where you are advancing Creation and Critical Assessment.
Tiger. Born 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, and 1998.
For the Tiger 2018 themes for illumination include Foundation, Academic Success, Romance, Creation and Critical Assessment, Attainment and Accomplishment with Ongoing Success.
For Tiger, the key is to be mindful of what you are maintaining. For all the balls you are juggling, it is time to consider where you are being busy instead of maintaining productive growth. The prize of success is so invested in, you may have missed some points that need attention, personally and professionally. If you can slow down to gain more focus, you will have steady progress. Try not to talk yourself out of the best action. Bear in mind there are exceptions to the rule.
Rabbit [Cat]. Born 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999.
For Rabbit in 2018 themes for illumination include Rebirth, Foundation, Academic Success, Romance and The Unknown.
Rabbits awakening in 2018 has the tone of calm your heart to hear the wisdom of the Universe. Step away from fear and its self fulfilling prophecy. Find comfort in Rebirth, gain a better Foundation and true perspective to serve you. This will add to the depth of your Success and Relationships. The inherent nature of fear will ask you to forgo nearly all Unknown aspects that come across your path. Cultivate reinforcing your strength to handle new situations and people a little bit at a time, over disengaging. As you build strength, it will bring the dawn of change being an ally, when approached with as much love as possible. Keep in mind safety also lies in advancement, even into and with the Unknown. Allow the Universe to show you support. Keep it light and bright.

Our Dragons themes for 2018 include Relationships, Fertility, Creation and Critical Assessment, Attainment, Accomplishment with Ongoing Success.
What are you bringing to bear? How will the birth of the new impact traditional view and arrangements? Change for change’s sake is not always beneficial. As you are creatively inspired it is worth noting that tradition is also a cornerstone for you. Be kind in your responses to those who dare to challenge or question. Keep your soul in peace and flow, this includes physical and mental movement, with a spiritual tone, like dance. The other key is not to push, force or cajole next year, especially if you are wanting outcomes to stand the test of time and establish new traditions. This will add to your legacy of Accomplishment with Ongoing Success.

The spirit of transformation lies here. As you enter your 2018 keep the anger and resentment illuminated so you can address it in the moment and have it serve you. Your language is also important in 2018. Be direct and clear with out cynicism and malice. If you are not liking aspects of your work, life, home, communication is the key to change that will have others working with you, over adding further resentment. Having an awareness is the moment with your great grounded approach will create many opportunities. Making the most of them will rely on how you are willing to work with The Unknown. This is your challenge in 2018, how do you fold in the unforeseen, without venom? Speak your truth, be mindful of those you speak to, that you will also want to keep as companions.
