We are about to enter the Chinese lunar year. More precisely on Monday, January 26, 2009 we are going to step into the Year of the Ox.
According to the Chinese fortune tellers, fire is essential for financial well-being. Meaning that you have to brace yourself for another bad year, when we are going to see millions of people loosing their jobs, recession deepening and the real estate and stock market value plummeting even more.
The coming Year of the Ox is under the Earth sign. Only in 2016 we get into a fire sign, with the Year of the Monkey. This date seems to be on the line with some predictions made by financial analysts who estimated that we need ten years to get out of the current financial mess.
But for 2009, fortune tellers predict massive earthquakes, rising U.S. – Russian tensions and trouble for U.S. President Barack Obama who is born in the Year of the Ox.
He is taking office in a bad year for his Chinese astrological sign and on top of that he is the 44th president, a number considered extremely unlucky by the Chinese. He may even face impeachment in his first year in the office.
