Xin Nian Kuai Le!
As we usher in the Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year, we also welcome the start of the zodiac year. Are you ready to know what this year has in store for you?
There are animals that correspond to the birth years in the Chinese Zodiac. The Chinese Zodiac is based on a 12-year cycle with an animal representing each year. Chinese zodiacs are then determined by birth year, so each zodiac gets the limelight once every 12 years.
Chinese New Year takes place on February 12 this year, only two days before Valentine’s Day and since 2021 is Year of the Metal Ox, it is believed that anyone born under this sign will have a promising year with plenty of luck and opportunities in many aspects of their life.
There are many ways to drive in luck and prosperity in our homes, career, love, and even health, but there are experts who study the signs that help predict our future to use them as a guide in our daily tasks and even future decisions. These experts also guide us on different feng shui practices and ancient principles that can be used in our daily lives. Feng Shui helps attract good energy and can also be used for more personal energy protection.
There are different charms and amulets that are essential for a specific animal sign and this depends on your Chinese zodiac sign and its ruling zodiac sign of the year.
