									Chinese Zodiac Animal Signs and Dates of Birth
Master Feng 14/02/08

The Chinese Zodiac is thousands of years old and easily predates its Western
counterpart. While Western Astrology is based upon the months of the year,
Chinese Astrology is based upon a twelve year lunar cycle. Your sign is
determined by the year in which you were born (to be accurate you must use a
Chinese calendar). Each sign and those born under it, are represented by one of
twelve animals, and are ascribed a set of attributes the Chinese believe comprise
the nature of each particular animal.

Legend has it the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac were chosen by Buddha.
When Buddha was near death he invited all the animals to visit him. Only 12
came: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog
and pig. For visiting him, Buddha honoured each by using them to represent the
12 phases of the Zodiac.

This year is the Year of the Rat.

Rat characteristics
Smart, magnetic, well-liked, affable, quick-witted, surreptitious, selfish, protective,
calculating.

Rat is respected and considered a courageous, enterprising person. It is deemed an
honour to be born in the year of the Rat and if is considered a privilege to be associated
with a Rat. Rats know exactly where to find solutions and can take care of themselves
and others without problems. They use their instinctive sense of observation to help
others in times of need and are among the most fit of all the animal signs to survive most
any situation.

Wise and thrifty, Rats have a knack with money and are apt to save for rainy days.

Rat Year is a time of renewal in so many ways.

A Rat Year is a time of hard work, activity, and renewal. This is a good year to begin a
new job, get married, launch a product or make a fresh start.

2008 Adventurous year for Rat & Horse - If you were born in the year of Rat or Horse,

The Rat & Money in 2008

Not easy to save money for Rat - The stock market will go through a correction period
for the crises generated by 7 e.g. stock market crises in 1907, 1937, 1987, 1997, 2007 -
therefore if investing in 2008 – be sure about what you are doing – make sure you are
shooting fish in a barrel and doing it after the water has run out. The year of Rat can
make you a lot of money if your decision is based on strong logic and the reasoning of
business fundamentals rather than following popular opinions. You will sleep well and be
rewarded handsomely, if your decision is based on durable, competitive advantages of a
company rather than the everyday rise and fall of share prices.

• The value of American currency in general will continue to decline against most
currencies. Australian interest rates will continue to rise beyond most people’s
imagination. That certainly will slow down inflation. Of course, most painful for people
with mortgages.
• Because Fire energy in 2008 is strong the Mining industry, especially in Western
Australia, will experience slower growth after the last few years of a bull market.
• Energy section will do really well. Such as coal & oil industry
• West coast of America and West Coast countries of Europe could experience major
economic turbulence


What does Rat mean to Politicians?

•   Action is louder than words
•   Obama will win in American Presidential Election 2008
•   Russia, Iran & US relationships will worsen to a stage we haven’t seen in years.
•   Apology to Aborigines is a sign of new beginnings for all Australians


Rat & Health

People with depression, fatigue, anxiety could experience higher levels of stress. Fire
energy is strong, serious immune and liver problems will ease a bit, mild problems could
see speedy recovery. But people with lung and skin conditions need to pay more
attention. 1918 the Spanish flue killed 40 million people and 2003 SARS are all results of
different intensities of fire energy in those years. So I wouldn’t be surprised if a
respiratory problem becomes headlines in 2008. See doctor immediately if you find
something not right. The practise of meditative healing techniques would be beneficial.
