2010: Year of the Tiger -- Ox

2010: Year of the Tiger -- Ox

OX: 29% (2 favorable and 10 unfavorable months)

You could have a measure of good luck this year as the Tiger seems to bring some to everyone, and Metal is the Ox's most favorable element. On the other hand you might as well be prepared to face some challenges. Tiger style is not conducive to your peace of mind. This is not the time to march forth boldly into battle heedless of the consequences. You will have to pick your fights and show much restraint if you want to be successful overall. You are only likely to have two great months this year; make sure to take advantage of the opportunities they provide. The rest of the time you need to tone down your efforts and press ahead carefully with ongoing projects.

Career

A year of transition and unexpected changes in career prospects could unnerve the Ox in 2010, especially after what have likely been two years of steady progress. The Tiger could present great long-term opportunities in the Ox's profession, but you may not readily see it this way unless you are willing to reconsider well-laid plans. It is not a good time to push ahead too boldly. Rather, focus on maintaining gains already made and strengthening your professional reputation. Better yet, making yourself more valuable in your field by diversifying your skill set and pursuing additional accreditations or qualifications will be fruitful endeavors this year. Self-improvement will position you for future successes.

While generally a quiet year, Oxen will enjoy a number of memorable occasions with loved ones and develop valuable new contacts. Happiness could be focused around a younger person who is a source of pride and comfort. A recent acquaintance could become more important in your life, and development of this relationship over the year could have powerful meaning for you. Unattached Oxen could find a deeper love in a blossoming friendship. Family relationships should be a reliable source of support and encouragement when things don't go as smoothly as you would like. Try to be especially straightforward and open with your feelings and not let small problems fester or escalate this year.

Health

Burnout is a risk this year if your reaction to setbacks tends to be simply working harder. For your mental health it is advisable to take up some hobby or new interest that is completely new to you and which doesn't directly relate to your current goals or responsibilities. The challenge of mastering a new skill is likely to be a healthy way to refocus some of your energies that may be frustrated over the course of the year. Furthermore, it is likely that you will discover you have some abilities you were unaware of, which will boost your self-esteem and personal outlook for the future.

Wealth

Your cautious approach will serve you well in 2010; although, you may be uncharacteristically tempted by fast-moving forces to take unusual risks. Do not let yourself be pushed or pressured to follow the crowd in financial matters. If everyone else suffers a big loss, so be it. There may be lucrative opportunities where wealth is concerned, and you should certainly investigate and take advantage of them. But, this is no time to throw caution to the wind. Rely on your methodical and patient style when making money decisions this year.
