The key is to be moderate and look before you leap into anything that looks new and exciting. Career and jobs will be hectic but manageable.

You will be more creative and will find that ideas and inspirations come to you more quickly and naturally.


2019  will be an eventful year for members born under the Monkey sign. While things can be very good on the one hand,  as you are also a clashing sign to the Pig sign,  you must still be aware that there will be challenges. The key to a successful year is to remember not to allow frustrations to affect your decision making. Your journey this year will be smoother if you can be more open and look before you leap. Workwise, you will still see support from colleagues, friends and superiors. Office politics are inevitable and the smarter thing to do is to stay away from conflict where possible and definitely avoid taking sides.


This is a mixed energy year for those born under the Rooster sign. You are advised to keep positive by keeping with optimistic people and participate in light and happy activities throughout the year. It will also be helpful to take life at an easier pace and allow plenty of time for personal relaxation and contemplation. With career and business, it is advisable not to make impulsive decisions.  It is also good to keep calm at work and avoid situations of conflicts. Be aware that too many changes at work can also destabilize your position. The key to a more successful work life this year is not to over-react and manage people carefully.

Life, in general, will feel more supportive,  people you meet will have a positive impact on you and some can feel protective of you.

As it is common to feel restless and sensitive in a clashing year, controlling your emotions is vital this year. How well you perform this year will depend on how well you can manage your thoughts and emotions. You must remind yourself to find ways to stay positive this year and be open to changes.  Workwise, it will be wise to keep low key and avoid getting into conflict with colleagues or superiors.

I am always satisfied by the delightful read when Clarice publishes her book each year. It has been spot on for me over the years so I hope this year is no exception. Although my outlook is not as clear sailing as I would have hoped, there is nothing like a challenge to keep one on their toes. I know I need to watch my health and that's to do with my lifestyle. I want to get the most out of 2018 so its all about fitness, good eating an no over indulgences....


Thanks for featuring this article!:D
My sign is Rabbit and after reading I need to take a bit more care of myself. Master Clarice Chan gave me this advise: This will be fast and eventful year for people born under the Rabbit sign. It is also a good year for those who wish to make a career change or simply a job switch. Rabbits in business will need to be more patient with project development or expansion. Single Rabbit individuals are likely to make new friends and find romance, but committed relationships may take longer to form. A harmonious and happy year is indicated for Rabbits that are attached or married. Health wise, it is important that you take extremely good care of yourself: issues can arise from bad eating habits or due to an over indulgent lifestyle.
