Every year, as we approach the new Chinese Lunar Year, we tend see a barrage of predictions made by astrologers and fortunetellers for the upcoming lunar year. Most of these predictions are based on the 12 animal signs. The predictions are often generalized and rather simplistic as they are based on one’s year of birth in relation to the ruling animal sign of the Chinese Lunar Year. The predictions are made to satisfy general curiosity but do not serve the specific needs of an individual. At times, it can be reasonably accurate but should not be used as a guide when making important decisions.

For more personalized and accurate predictions for the new year, one needs to analyse one’s date, time and place of birth. The Chinese metaphysics called BaZi or the ‘Four Pillars of Destiny’ can be used to make personalized predictions since it segregate human beings into 12.96 million individuals compared with the simple system based on the 12 animal signs. The prediction is based on the two ruling elements representing the heavenly stem and the earthly branch. The starting of the new year on this metaphysics is based on the Hsia Calendar using the solar system and normally begins on the 4th February and ends at 3rd February of the following year. The Chinese Lunar Year is represented by the five elements for the 12 animal signs. The current year is the Fire Dog (Fire Earth) and next lunar year is the Fire Pig (Fire Water). The predictions are based on your self-element, components elements and current luck pillar of your BaZi in relation to the ruling two elements of the year concerned.
