Take charge of your destiny and make the Year of the Earth Dog a year to remember with Chinese zodiac highlights from Dato’ Joey Yap, master of classical feng shui, Chinese astrology, and other Chinese metaphysics. Illustrations by Tiffany Choong.
For those with a career in academics, good news—a transformational year awaits. If you intend on picking up new skill sets and enriching yourself, now would be the time to do so. Think twice before making big monetary decisions as you might encounter potential loss from unlucky financial investments or delayed reimbursements. Similarly, your career could be on a rockier path due to petty people who might be jealous of your accomplishments. Channel your energy towards striving for career advancements instead and it’ll pay off. For love, the spotlight is on the single ladies, but those married should beware of temptations. Those with a wanderlust spirit should think twice when attempting water activities such as swimming and snorkelling. Keep an eye out for mishaps that might happen.
Star trait: quick-witted, resourceful, smart
