The hard-working, dutiful Ox may experience many sudden changes to their career pathway, which will induce an above-normal level of personal stress. The rewards are expected to come, but patience will be a virtue. The Ox needs to be especially careful not to provoke others or lash out without thought. An excellent year to undertake new skills training with the prospects of personal advancement on the horizon. This is not a year in which to gamble your fortunes on novel investment schemes.
A foundation year to map out your next decade or so. Tigers will receive welcome family support for carefully conceived career moves, which could occur as soon as the first half of the Tiger Year. Personal expenses are set to rise, impacting savings if care is not taken. Tiger business owners need to keep a tight reign over their business affairs which could be turbulent.

Snake people will feel the full force of their destiny in the Tiger Year. Expect the unexpected, and stress management should be a priority. Get cracking on that new venture and stop dithering. Female snakes should fare well in business if a solid foundation has already been laid. The male Snake may fare less well than their counterpart. Focus on delivering quality work and be sparing of feelings with workmates. Adopt a collegiate attitude with others.
Gambolling through metaphorical hills and dales will be the Horse’s lot in life during the Tiger Year. Despite this, there will be many pleasure moments to relish. Focus firmly on goals and sound investments which should bring out positive outcomes during the second half of the Tiger Year. Do not be tempted to court new personal or business relationships that disrupt the status quo. It is more likely not to end well in a Tiger Year.
The Goat may be blessed with new wealth and public accolades in the Tiger Year. Friends will support the Goat, and overseas business trips may be fruitful. Avoid internal politics like the plague. Goats who make an unwavering commitment towards hard work and personal integrity will be rewarded in spades.

The ever-loyal Dog may suffer in the hands of tough bosses or hostile work environments. Finances may be strained. Students born in the Dog Year are the most likely to benefit in the new astrological order as their studies should bring about success with the proper application of effort.

The sociable, gregarious Pig person may find this astrological cycle somewhat frustrating with abrupt changes of fate in either direction.
