2007 - The Year of the Boar

By Brenda Black


The Year of the Boar began on February 18, 2007. After the intense year of the Dog in 2006, the Boar brings in more peace and harmony. Countries will take better care of their citizens and there may be a global conference that brings an end to an intense war. There is a focus on home improvements and entertainment – in fact dieters may have to work harder at shedding those unwanted pounds. Marriage counselors may be busier than ever before as many couples seek help in bringing intimacy back into their relationships.

Following are predictions for the 12 signs of the Chinese Zodiac:

Rat

(1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996)

A year of rest and recuperation from last year’s harsh events. Try to conserve your energy for next year when you begin your new 12-year cycle of good fortune. There is slow and steady progress in business and investments. You may be tempted to jump right in to a new love relationship, but try to get to know the person before you give your heart away.

(Cameron Diaz & Sean Penn)

Ox

(1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997)

A year of happiness and contentment. There is a lot of activity at home and work. Several new important business contacts will open new doors for you. Someone you dated on and off in 2006 could turn out to be your true love. Keep on saving and investing and you will have good financial news at the end of the year.

(Tyra Banks and George Clooney)

Tiger

(1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998)

A year of luck and happiness. You will make lots of money at the beginning of the year, but try to conserve your money for the rest of the year. Your career looks good and you will enjoy the fruits of your labor. In love, keep your options open and do not get involved with someone from work.

(Kirstie Alley and Ryan Seacrest)

Rabbit

(1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999)

You will feel secure and content as you coast through the year. Be realistic and do not lend money to friends. You may fall in love at first sight and extended dating may lead to a marriage proposal. You will meet some classy new friends and some will travel to a different part of the country to interview for a better job.

(Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt)

Dragon

(1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000)

After the challenges of 2006, life will get back to normal. This is a year of travel, entertainment and recreation and you will meet new friends. Use caution with finances and hold off on major purchases such as a home or car. Hold on to your investments even if they pay modest dividends. There will be some ups and downs in your career. You may meet someone special while traveling.

(Teri Hatcher and Russell Crowe)

Snake

(1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001)

You have a quiet year as you prepare for fortunate new beginnings next year. There is a possible separation from someone but there is also someone special to give you support. Use good judgment and caution in finances and the gaming industry. You may be around people who do not think the way you do.

(Chris Rock and Kim Basinger)

Horse

(1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002)

Your social life looks good, but it is not a year for marriage. Pamper yourself and update your wardrobe. Build on friendships formed last year. There may be stress and miscommunications this year, which will let up by the holidays of 2007. Try not to let other people interfere with your life. Use caution with your investments.

(Halle Berry and Ashton Kutcher)

Sheep

(1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003)

Everything you touch turns to gold this year! There is good fortune in romance and business. You may inherit or win money and you could have access to funds previously withheld. There is an excellent chance of meeting your soul mate by Spring. Your family is a source of joy and inspiration and they support your goals. Give to charity.

(Julia Roberts and Tim McGraw)

Monkey

(1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004)

Take advice only from trusted friends. Your income increases, but work diligently with your financial advisor. You should hook up with a romantic admirer, but wait until next year for marriage. You may have had diet concerns in the year of the Dog – now be reasonable with your eating. You will do well in any job that you put your heart into.

(Jessica Simpson and Elijah Wood)

Rooster

(1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005)

Your career is challenging, but dedication to your job gets you out of a financial slump. Save as much money as you can, but buy small luxuries. If you are offered a promotion, get a written job description and be clear about your duties. Your personal relationships will take a turn for the better and there is a positive romantic trend that continues into 2008.

(Jessica Alba & Ray Romano)

Dog

(1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006)

You are happy and stress-free, but this is the year to invest your successful earnings from last year. Check out health concerns passed down from generation to generation. Check your home insurance policy and keep up with home maintenance this year. If single, try a different approach in romantic situations.

(Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Foxworthy)

Boar

(1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007)

You are the most advanced sign in the Chinese Zodiac and you carry with you much wisdom from many lifetimes. Early this year you could meet someone who suits you perfectly! You will make good money and have some left over to entertain good friends. Investments will increase in value. Those who owe you money will pay you back. Suggestion: take a cruise this year to an exotic location!

(Donald Sutherland and Missy Elliott)
