Pig - Those born in 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995
Career: 2014 will be a busy year for Pigs at the workplace. As long as you are prepared to work hard, success in the form of promotions will come your way. Remember to stay humble and reliable.
Wealth: Careful investment will help you grow your money. While friends or relatives may provide valuable financial advice, it is important to remain risk adverse if someone wants to borrow money from you.
Love: An ex might reappear in the Pig’s life. Singles will enjoy a busy social life with many dates and those who are married will enjoy bliss.
Health: As Pigs have to put in the effort to strive hard at work, it is important to not push yourself to the limit as you have to keep up your energy levels for the whole year to be successful. Your digestive system might give you some trouble so take care not to eat too much spice.
Rat – Those born in 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996
Career: Unfortunately, the Rat will face many challenges in her career in the new year. Besides disagreements, you might also have to work plenty of overtime or be transferred overseas.
Wealth: The year may be fraught with money issues that might be add to your stress – a loved one might run into monetary difficulties and require you to help them out.
Love: In the love department, Rats also can’t expect much in 2014. The Single Rat might not be able to find time to socialise because of her focus on work. Arguments might be commonplace for those who are married so you have to control your temper regardless of the situation.
Health: It is important for Rats to keep to a healthy diet and get regular exercise because that’s the only way you will be able to take on the stress at the office.
Ox – Those born in 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997
Career: If 2013 was a good year at work, this year will be stellar with many opportunities for advancement. But your boss and colleagues might take advantage of your hardworking nature and pile extra work and responsibility on you – learn how to speak out when you are overworked.
Wealth: The Ox has to learn how to be practical in 2014. Long term investment like real estate might be a better bet only if you have the extra money to invest with.
Love: This is the year the single Ox will meet many people but none looking for a relationship. But trust issues will arise for the married Ox – it’s important to be more tolerant with your other half.
Health: Stay alert when you are travelling because there may be a chance of an accident. While you may have got away with neglecting your health in the past, this year you should seek help should your body experience any discomfort.
Tiger – Those born in 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998
Career: Changes in the workplace could mean a leadership position – and a larger workload – for Tigers. This is the time to let your creativity and capability shine and doors will open.
Money: Your financial contacts will provide you with some valuable advice in 2014 but you need to monitor whatever investments you undertake. There’s a chance of the Tiger receiving unexpected commissions and bonuses.
Love: Those in love have to be careful of anyone trying to come between you and your other half. As for single Tigers, you should pursue a relationship with the person you had a connection with in 2013 in the new year – if not, you might remain single even if you do meet many compatible individuals in 2014.
Health: Deep fried food and caffeine will be the Tiger’s health downfall this year. If you can control your cravings, you will be full of energy and a better mood will follow.
Rabbit – Those born in 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999
Career: The Rabbit’s people skills will improve and this leads to an improved ability to handle any challenge that comes your way at work. 2014 might be a good year to seek new employment.
Wealth: You will find yourself spending more on social activities and travel but your finances should not pose too much of a problem. If a friend borrows money from you, there’s a high chance you won’t see it again.
Love: Rabbits in love might want to take the relationship further – marriage may be on the cards. While it’s unlikely that single Rabbits will find a special someone, it’s still a good time to put yourself out there.
Health: Pay attention to any infection or pain associated with the ear, nose, throat and urinary areas. Worry might also affect Rabbits physically.
Dragon – Those born in 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000
Career: Dragons will find it tough to make out friend from foe at the workplace so keep your ambition from rearing its ugly head – just in case. Keeping your cool in situations beyond your control will also help greatly.
Wealth: Saving for a rainy day – that is the Dragon’s money motto for 2014. Tread carefully when it comes to any potential investment.
Love: On the romance front, single Dragons will have little luck but love might still blossom in the latter half of the year. Married Dragons will do well to practise compromise with their partners.
Health: You might suffer from insomnia in the new year, thanks to stress. It’s a good idea to open up to friends and family about what’s bothering you. Be extra careful when travelling on the road too.
Snake – Those born in 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001
Career: 2014 is the year for your wisdom and experience to shine at work. A promotion might also be in the works. If you were planning to take a course or examination for work purposes, now is the time to do so.
Wealth: Thinking of starting a business or investment? 2014 might just be the right year to do so. However, Snakes should not get ahead of themselves and overspend as this could become a problem.
Love: Love is in the air for the Snake. If you have been single, potential loves might come knocking on your door in the new year. Those who are in relationships have never been happier.
Health: Generally, Snakes should not experience any huge health issues in the new year. But those who are older might want to avoid travelling long distances in the middle of 2014.
Horse – Those born in 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990
Career: If you are in a leadership position, you might have to spend time and energy rallying support to overcome any challenges in the office. But if you have been offered a new venture, don’t be afraid to take it on.
Wealth: Horses may spend a little too much on socialising and activities in the new year – put a cap on your expenses before it’s too late. Loaning money to friends will also spell disaster for your friendships.
Love: Single Horses might find their affections rebuffed by the opposite sex and those Horses who want to go further in their current relationships should not be too pushy. Putting love on the backburner in 2014 might not be such a bad thing.
Health: Your health will be better in 2014 than it was last year. But it doesn’t hurt to be extra careful when you are out on the road as Horses are more accident prone.
Goat – Those born in 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003
Career: It will be a busy year for Goats. Whatever goals you set will be met and your relationship with bosses and colleagues will be the best it’s ever been. 2014 is also a good time to look for a new job.
Wealth: For Goats looking to make some extra income, it’s wise to find day job-related projects. You will also loosen your purse strings, especially when it comes to spending on friends and family – be mindful not to go overboard.
Love: Goats who have been single for some time will develop a connection with a special someone in 2014 – it doesn’t hurt to be open minded if your parents match make you. Those who are happily attached will stay that way.
Health: Digestive problems might be the bane of the Goat’s health in the new year. Although the health front looks clear of big issues, small illnesses might pop up a little too often if a balanced lifestyle isn’t led.
Monkey – Those born in 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992
Career: There’s a chance that the Monkey might have to travel more for work in 2014. Try not to get distracted by those who might seem to be faring better in their jobs and focus on your own targets.
Wealth: Monkeys might find their fortune overseas but it will pay off to be satisfied with your lot. Venture very carefully when it comes to investments and such, there’s a possibility of running into legal matters.
Love: Move out of your social circles if you are single – this is the only way to find love. 2014 will be a smooth sailing year when it comes to matters of the hearts for Monkeys in relationship, minus some slight hiccups that can be put straight easily.
Health: You might be too caught up with your career to get sufficient rest and this might lead to infections and joint pain.
Rooster – Those born in 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993
Career: There’s no better time to build work allies than in 2014 – these alliances will prove helpful in tough situations. Plus, Roosters have to fix their habit of procrastination to get ahead in the office.
Wealth: Roosters might find themselves financially comfortable in the beginning of the new year but this might give you false confidence – take heed not to splurge.
Love: The past might haunt the Rooster when it comes to the romance department. But there’s a chance for single Roosters to chance upon someone they can click with. Married Roosters might be tempted to stray.
Health: Pay attention to your respiratory system in the new year – your throat and lungs might not be as healthy as you need them to be.
Dog – Those born in 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994
Career: Dogs looking for a change of scenery will find the route to new employment quite smooth sailing. If you are eyeing that promotion, there will be competition but if you manage to find supporters to back you up, the probability of success is higher.
Wealth: Unfortunately, the Dog has to reassess her financial commitments – 2014 is the year to stick to a budget. Be wary of short term investments and impulse buys.
Love: If you are single, you will have no problem mingling, except there’s that issue of figuring what you really want in a partner that’s stopping you from taking the plunge. Those who are married will be full of love.
Health: The best way to work off any stress in 2013 is to work out, although daredevil activities should be avoided. The Dog may experience digestion problems that may arise from the intestines and stomach.
