SPIRIT OF THE MONTH
Year of the Fire Pig
© Aris Dervis 2007
Here is the forecast from Theodora Lau. The year of the Pig begins on February 18th.
A year of goodwill to all. An excellent climate for business, and industry in general will prevail. People will be more free and easy on the whole and the complacent attitude of the Boar will generate a feeling of abundance. But in spite of the favorable auspices here, like the Boar we will hesitate, waver and undermine our own abilities when opportunity calls.
The Boar's year is one of plenty. La dolce vita is very much advocated and practiced by the sensual Boar. If life is worth living, it must be lived to the hilt. The Boar is as lavish with gifts as he is with affection. He takes pride in being chivalrous and extravagant. It would be ill advised to overspend this year or make sizable investments without thorough investigation. We may also come to regret impulsive acts of generosity made on the spur of the moment.
The fortunate Boar carries with him contentment and security. This is one year in which you could be happy without having or needing a lot of success or money to make it so. There will not seem to be many obstacles to overcome and the placid Boar radiates a sense of well being. Still, a great deal of prudence is recommended in money matters, as the Boar is always susceptible to swindlers.
This year will find us entertaining a lot more than usual and getting ourselves involved in all sorts of charitable and social functions. We find it a lot easier to make friends in the Boar's tolerant and expansive atmosphere.
Watch out for excesses, as the Boar tends to overindulge himself in anything when given the opportunity. Weight watchers will have a tough time and may face losing (or rather, gaining) battles.

Wishing you all a very happy New Year!
