Chinese Astrology is based on the lunar (Moon) calendar. Each Chinese sign lasts more or less for a year, beginning with the New Moon in the Sun Sign of Aquarius. This New Moon can fall at any time between early January and late February. Every twelfth year will be the year of the same animal - the Year of the Pig begins on 4th February 2019 and the next Pig year will not begin until 23rd January 2031.

According to Chinese tradition, the signs were given their names by Buddha, five centuries before the birth of Christ. As Buddha lay dying he asked all the animals in the world to come to visit him and say farewell. Only twelve did so, and to thank them he offered each one their own year, so they would become immortal. The names of the Chinese Astrological Signs (in Chinese Zodiac order) are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Hen/Rooster, Dog and Pig.

It is time to consolidate your position. If you are unhappy with your present circumstances, by all means plan for future change, but donít make the move yet. Be happy during this period by making the best of your present circumstances, and improving your environment for the time being.

This is generally a period of quiet improvement. Finances are sound and home life is tranquil. There is certainly a greater feeling of satisfaction with your circumstances. November is a good time to redecorate your home.

There is the suggestion of domestic disputes over trivial matters this year. This is not likely to bother you, but other family members - unknown to you - may be deeply upset.

This is a positive year - allowing you to spend time and money on making your environment more comfortable. Follow any leads which attract you as this is a period of personal development and life improvement.

The Pig year is sufficiently distant from the Dragon for it to be neither a help nor a hindrance. Use the time for continuing processes already in motion, solving problems as they arise and working steadily towards the goal that you have already set yourself.

Disruption to family life is likely this year - relatives who visit may outstay their welcome. Offering a friend the use of a spare room for a short while may be taken as an invitation to move in. Be careful how you phrase your offers of help this year, you could be taken advantage of.

A refreshingly quiet year when you can set family matters to rights. A house move will proceed more smoothly than you expected. A long-standing grievance in the family will be healed and new bonds forged
