***Good Luck and Wishes Come True!***

World Prediction


The beginning of the 'Earth Dog Element' year will perform much better in positive territory globally than the previous year in terms of economic improvement. Many nations will be trying to play catch up with developing and or developed nations, upgrading their infrastructure, improving living standards, resulting in offering deals and conditions in order to attract multi-millions or billions in investments from established corporations or on inter government levels. Such practice is not new in a sense, but during the year, things are happening much more different from the norm. Much dealing associated with bartering trading terms and conditions rather than relying on long term loans with low interest.

No doubt certain developed nations would prefer to protect their nations' interests ahead of others, which is understandable, but not at the expense of other poorer nations. It will be near impossible to satisfy each and every requirement and sticking to the rules of World Trade Organization (WTO), resulting in more debates and modification to future trading regulations. It will be another long process before amicable agreements can be reached. Third world nations could be fighting for more protection or special concessions in order to compete with the developed nations.

Even though the global economy will be picking up progressively, however this does not mean nations with humongous financial debts will service their debts appropriately, partly due to ruling government's political interests. Balancing such acts requires skill and talents and the appeasement of the public interest. But not many nations will be able to attain the promises through harmonious ways. The majority of nations from the southern hemispheres continue to voice their disappointment about trade imbalances imposed on them and want more influence or take more control. This will result in further protective measures against other nations.

The continuous growth of global economic influence is shifting from the Western and European regions toward Asian, Central Asia and Middle Eastern regions. The change of influence could result in government dominance of economic power, hopefully building more stable regions. Do not under-estimate the influence or changes in the Middle Eastern style of government, for the revolutions could affect the overall global economy not because of mineral oil resources, but due to new regime rule.

International matters

Civil warfare, terrorism retaliation and social unrests will continue in regions with insecure governance nations, ranging from Europe, Middle East, South America, and parts of Asian regions. The public is more determined in expressing their discontentment with ruling governments and there will be several riots and changes of government's practices, resulting in massive loss of civilian's lives, which is impossible to contain. The Super Power nations are shying away from direct confrontation with those nations that may only create more disastrous consequences for nations involved. Hence the burden lies with the United Nations Council, which seems to have their hands tied as well. Unfortunately the humanitarian aid will reduce in level where nations are not making the necessary contributions as agreed. Refugees and asylum seekers will continue to suffer much dire condition and many could perish as a consequence.

Civil wars or unrest continues to spread across Europe and Middle Eastern regions, due to endless war mongering, separatists' unrest, each fighting for their own interest. Despite numerous governments and The United Nations efforts to curb the escalation, could end in failure with more civilian bloodshed. Insecurity instability and chaos within the regions will escalate every now and then creating uncertainty and anxiety among the civilians. Immigration pressure continues to pile pressures on neighboring nations that were ultimately forced to change their humanitarian views due to economic pressure. Continuous government ruling parties are likely to create more economical worries and instability. With new rules and regulations imposed, things will change that affect inter-movement and business transactions. It will take much longer to adapt to the new rules for those affected.

Deployments of Artificial Intelligence (AI) concepts are the next advancing technological leap forward associated with nation's national security and warfare against terrorism. Such proposals will be contested by civil rights group against privacy but unlikely to win against nation's security priority. Even with the deployment of the new AI technology, which is still in the stage of infancy, it will be tried and tested long before government can confidently assure the public that it will be safe to deploy for future surveillance and security purposes. Digital warfare will continue to be causing significant headaches for government internal security issues and intelligence services for more vital data leakage will be exposed to the media, causing untold embarrassment. Such data loss or hacking scenario continues to spread panic or fear across the financial markets, creating certain setbacks for new technological software or smart-phone mobile application launches.


Fierce competition among developed nations continues further where each nation will try to outperform one another for influence and world dominance. New counter measures will be imposed by nations that are threatened by an influx of migration, low imports, securities intellectual, renewal energy & resources investments and increasing artificial intelligence research and development. Such countermeasure implementation certainly creates a tense negative atmosphere for nations involved and will not create beneficial consequences of which they are very well aware.

New trading block agreements between numerous developed trading nations will arrive in a timely fashion where existing groups will be the envy, prompting others to ponder where and how they may have gone wrong. Such scenario indirectly creates quite a lot of discontentment among nations that appear to have lost out within the WTO terms and conditions. There will be many rounds of talks and discussions, which lead to no positive conclusions.

The race to achieve new technological research, advancement development and ultimately production receives massive attention not only from inter-government departments but also from multi-billions investment fund managers who are preparing to pump lots of money into the future. Whoever manages to come up with winning ideas, concepts and production lines will certainly dominate the world markets.

Government spending on warfare technology and nuclear will increase a few fold, indirectly creating tension within the super power nations and certain up-coming nations too. Those nations involved may prefer not to be made feel less important on the global stage. Such combative competition and financial spending is unlikely to end as long as humanity allows its ego to dictate, resulting in tense and insecure atmosphere and a no-win-win situation for the public in general. Perhaps the money should be better spent on much more humanitarian developments, medical research facilities, food resources cultivation, regeneration, improvements on environmental destruction controls or reaching a peaceful means for the human race.

Weather and the Environment

Despite frequent global deteriorating weather conditions and broadcasts warnings, reminders across the globe to most nations, very slow progress has been achieved in curbing the emission of carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide into the atmosphere. The effects of rising temperatures, resulting in accelerating melting of the ice caps in the Artic and Antarctic, sudden extreme cold weather conditions, frequent extreme flooding scenarios and draughts conditions, largely result from the human population growth which rapidly depletes the natural environments resources in order to supplement the needs of human development and progress of the future rat race.

The increasing variations in temperature difference occurring across various nations with different landscapes have different disastrous consequences ranging from enormous hurricane or tornados storms to increased arid regions or draughts, killing large animals stocks that rely on vast vegetation growth. The continuous global weather deterioration will only create endless destruction, disruption and suffering to various regions of the globe - involving deforestation, famine and the spread of viral diseases.

The human race needs to curb the increasing environmental pollution ranging from exploitation of natural resources to food consumption before the planet's natural resources reach a point of beyond of no return. Even though many nations are gradually warming to the concept of exploring renewal energy development, unfortunately not enough has been accomplished due to initial high financial implication. No doubt the human race will not be able to return to the old ways of survival but somehow humans may perhaps need to slow down the degradation process for future generation's survival.

Frequent earthquake scenarios are increasing during the year, spreading from the northern to the southern hemispheres, resulting in significant loss of lives, despite advanced warning measures installed in strategic locations. The advancement of scientific studies is unable to prevent the force of nature from happening but however fails to warn the public in advance. No doubt humans will continue to learn and refine their technology studies to produce much accurate predictions.

IF only all governmental nations come to their sense that they are surviving within a beautiful resourceful but fragile blue planet and uniting in participating to combat the increasing man made pollution scenario, this blue planet will certainly stand a better chance of survival for generations to come.

While you cannot disregard certain persistent financial matters or complex relationship issues involving loved ones, family members, friends or colleagues, it is advisable to approach these in untried manners without creating undesirable outcomes for parties involved. During the second part of the year, you will need more time to take advantage of the fluctuating environments with consequential insights. However when you decide to preserve certain vital or personal matters to yourself, it appears to be a wise choice. At the time they were really nobody's business but your own. When the situation develops and takes on greater importance, several individuals will take notice of your presence or importance.

What is more, it arouses others suspicious what is happening and will soon begin to question your intentions.

Life could be less complicated if you could put to rest certain disconcerting private issues involving others, associated with personal or working life. Reacting with hostility and without appropriate facts or background research could easily backfire in your face.

Throughout the year, it is advisable to be tolerant dealing with most aspects in life associated with relationship, businesses, career and especially the Law. Not an excellent period and hopefully one will take the duration as a learning or observation transition period. It does not necessarily mean a doom and gloom year, but treading things and situation with great care and consideration. The more you try to counter or challenge the opponents or the Law, the more you are likely to suffer greater negative impacts.

Every once in a while an attractive proposition appears out of nowhere with terms and conditions that are too good to refuse, as if you had won the national lottery.

Need to be mindful of accusations or slander by certain groups or individuals with a personal vendetta. Generally a reasonable year, but one is advised to pay more attention to wellbeing or when engage in extreme sports or competition.

Before responding to any queries, challenges or accusations, remember to hold your tongue without provoking others. It will only fuel others opportunities that can be used against you and by the time you realize it, it could be too late to retract the spoken words, even though without intent. No doubt you will learn through mistakes made, which can be considered natural, but more important to learn from them rather than keep repeating similar mistakes. If not careful enough, it could ultimately become a negative habit.

Hopefully one will be able to let go of negative invincible burdens and not hold grudges on those who had previously let you down big time, either intentionally or unavoidably. No doubt, when you make a commitment, you tend to keep it. But not everyone is capable of sticking to his/her word. Yet if you were to recall calmly, you may discover that even you have had to make certain unplanned or undesirable changes under pressing circumstances. In other words, if you put yourself in their shoes, perhaps you could understand their circumstances.

You begin Year of the Dog feeling full of confidence and knowing which direction you are heading toward for the sake of your family and personal wellbeing. However during this exciting yet potentially unsettling period in between, you will discover more about your weakness and strengths than you have for ages. In a way, you will be living out its theme of revolution with the changing situations. The real challenge is that you may not always distinguish appropriate prospects to explore personally, in terms of self-awareness or even spirituality. Whenever feasible, invest time learning about whatever and whoever is heading your direction with an open mind-set. The focus is personal redefinition; often what is most inspiring will come via a third party. You are encouraged to overcome either self-doubt or belief that certain pursuits could be uninteresting or without potential. In the past perhaps they were. During this year, however you will soon discover that those activities have changed and more importantly, so have you.

Charisma is always handy especially when situations are perplexing. But be cautious about what you suggest when being charming. Others could misconstrue what you say in order to boost their mental state, as a promise or even an offer of a lasting nature.

While you may have discussed your intentions, you have kept things to yourself more than you realize. As you probably are aware, a new relationship (business or personal level) is usually built on trust between two parties. That could be the groundwork of potential solid relationships.

When planning something ahead, you are extremely wary of the possibility things will change or external influence could jeopardize certain plan or scheme. Avoid letting such uncertainty deter you from achieving some of your dreams. Otherwise you are unlikely to kick start anything in life. It is common practice to allow risks associated and consider the worst-case scenario, building a buffer zone as a safety measure. It is important to gradually build up self-confidence interacting with the open wide interesting and yet challenging society. When you jump into the society, either you join in the swim or sink when you stop.

Developing constant distress or worries about due debts or mortgage payments are unlikely to resolve the situation on their own. However this does not mean that one can just ignore the whole situation and wait for someone or others to come to your rescue, maybe in the past but not this time unfortunately. It is about to stand on your own feet and be accountable for personal action. Hopefully things will get easier once you manage to instigate the repayment process. Let's resolve one thing at a time before considering another plan.

Life can be wonderful especially when one realizes how fortunate it is to have someone dear as a close companion to share and comfort in times of need and joy. One tends to become mellower with maturity, pondering about life often and deriving satisfying feelings. Continue to do the things you enjoy most and do not stop at this stage for there are still several plans or dreams to accomplish in the future. You still have plenty of reserve in you, so just do not allow the emotional fear of age deter you from proceeding.

Some could be standing at the crossroads in association with career path selections, feeling unsure which direction or option one should make. The market demands or expectations could provide some hint what the future might hold but the final decision rests with your choice or preference. Ask yourself what you would like to achieve, doing things you enjoy and at the same time contributing to society in return? Obviously financial implication needs to be taken into consideration but do not be influenced merely by financial rewards. All roads lead to Rome and you could be spoiled for choice.

Beware of deceitful approaches during the course of the year, where one could become a victim to scam, trying to trick your hard earned money or assets. Either way, one is going through a delicate scenario where one has no major route of escape except to be extra vigilant before signing any documents that relate to financial commitments, like a mortgage, debt re-payment, agreement or contract. Avoid the temptation of "get rich quick scheme" when approached by strangers or financial advisors including some personal friends and relatives.

Watch out for hazardous signs or potential misfortune lurking at the work place, business transactions, research, family affair or education. Preliminary "warning flares" have been fired into the horizon, as a signal to warn an individual to get his or her act together. If one has not pushed one's luck beyond a certain limit, then one is comparatively safe from being made redundant, having a deal or contract terminated or having funds suspended for an education research project. Beware of hidden pit-falls that may be across the path, one is advised to watch each and every step and pay special attention to personal belongings, documents, money and valuable things.

Bright and positive prospects are hovering around the corner and one should just keep up with the good practices concerning career development, public relations or business approaches. On the other hand, it is advisable to stay away from immoral sexual activities that could tarnish or jeopardize reputation, attracting undesirable attention from the media especially for those in the public limelight. Be heedful for there are others who might set a honey-trap to see your downfall, partly due to competition more than for reasons of vengeance.

Friendship or a family member relationship could be put to the test during the course of the year and one may face a dilemma in deciding which option to choose. There are situations where one is left without much choice and one should try his or her best to fit into the part. Voicing an honest opinion could create a shock to those who least expects it and perhaps it could be the best way forward. Have no fear as long as one has no ill intentions against them. Since this is a complicated society and there are no definite ways of pleasing each and every individual. Follow your heart and conscience before making a choice.

Avoid sheer resentment, which could easily cloud your judgment and fill with hatred against those that threaten your security or family wellbeing. In an uncontrollable moment, it could create more misery in your life. Learning to understand the situation could perhaps help to see the wider picture of the event, learning something from it and progressing forward with life. There will be other better opportunities and things to achieve out there. More importantly you manage to overcome the anger and frustration and become stronger than before. No doubt it could be a bitter pill to swallow but then again one will become wiser. Things should gradually improve for the better with time and you will be more than happy to move forward ahead with career and lifestyle.

In general, the Monkey fire element type will encounter early retirement, migrate, relocation or move to a new place of residence, job change or participate in a partnership business. Things are going to be more positive than negative and one is certainly better-off than before due to the changes in living environment or surrounded by loved ones. Minor divergences among family members or friendship could gradually lead to serious strains IF one continues to ignore their feelings. Pay more attention while driving and do not be easily distracted by the surroundings or others' misfortunes. Take appropriate care of personal belongings and avoid being a victim to theft due to ignorance or being too trustworthy of strangers.

Watch out for overgenerous spending that could land an individual with excessive financial debts and possibly resulting in stressful scenario. Financial gains for the year certainly depend on individual's industrious effort, performance and reliability. Take additional precautions when entering into new or major contracts with any institution, purchase or business transactions when approached. Making hasty decisions could also land an individual in serious trouble with the Law. For some, also not an excellent year for those who wish to get married, for one could end up in a divorce due to unforeseen circumstances within a short period of marriage. It's best to delay the marriage for another year. Married couples are more at odds with each other without any significant reason.

Continue to live and enjoy your present freedom lifestyle as long it does not interfere or bother certain dependants. No doubt one needs to exercise with care and to disregard personal safety when traveling alone is only going to cause endless nightmares for loved ones. Financial situation varies from one extreme to the other. On the plus side, those riding on some high investment portfolio need to take into consideration potential external threats from competitors or the involvement of inside dealing. On the negative side, one is advised to cut undesirable losses and make a fresh investment rather than clinging on for life. This is not the moment to take on high-risk investments when external factors are beyond one's control.

Not recommended to remain idle at this stage in life, where one should be venturing out in search of one's dreams or purpose in life. Perhaps contributing something back to society or doing things that could change the public concept. It will be a challenge that many would not dream about but this should not discourage you from progressing. Put aside personal relationship for the time being and focus on things or situations that ultimately reshape your lifestyle, career or traveling plans. Do not waste unnecessary time thinking in depth when opportunities knock on your door. Grab them and you should never look back again. Obviously there will be hidden dangers lurking in some of the situations and one need to weigh them before committing.

Try not to worry over things no matter how trivial it appears. What you contemplate them to be vital but unlikely in agreement with loved ones could ultimately result in disharmony. No matter how hard you may try to please family members or close relatives, you just cannot achieve as such. Some of your intentions are noble, but not necessarily to their liking. Why waste time and effort when you can spend time doing things you treasure or enjoy.
