Annual Forecasts & Yearly Predictions for 2009 : Ji Chou, Yin Brown Earth Ox Year (Lunar – 26.01.2009 to 13.02.2010) – General Analysis based on Chinese Astrology by Janarrdhana Guptha, Energy Consultant
The Chinese Lunar Year of 2009 is called as Ji Chou – the Year of the Yin Brown Earth Ox or Bull or Buffalo. In a sense, as Yin implies Female, some Chinese Astrologers prefer to call it as the Year of the Female Brown Earth Cow. It is also the Sixth Year in the New Fengshui Land Luck Cyclic Age of 8.
The Year of Ji Chou is an extremely strong Yin Earth Year as both Ji as well as Chou are of Yin Earth. Thus the analysis of the Five Elements reveals 2009 as Yin Earth sitting over Yin Earth. It means the elemental relationship of the year is productive and not destructive, but it could also be fiercely competitive.
2009 will be a demanding year that will extract extra hard work and large commitments but without proportional rewards. Transformations, policy changes, conviction politics will mark the year distinctly. The hyperinflation will continue haunting the world and the economic tsunami will continue to ravage most of the countries. Public anger will lead to strikes and demonstrations. Unrest, general discontentment and social violence will be visible strongly. 2009 will carry over the torch of instability but will show signs of recovery dawn by the year end. Prices of valuables, properties and stocks will fall heavily but will try to limp back in the second half of the year. However it is not all doom and gloom for everybody. Wealth will be made like any other year but it will be extremely tricky to retain it. More and more people will resort to unethical tactics and illegal short-cuts to gain quick money. Aggressive competition will add fuel to fire, leading to open confrontations, fraud exposures and legal mess. Business people will indulge in staff poaching, unethical acquisitions and forced mergers. Impulsive buying sprees and unplanned budgets will be common, resulting in financial chaos. Controlling the expenses will be a tough challenge for one and all. Armed robbery and religious conflicts will reach new high levels.
There will be more joyous occasions to clebrate, like weddings and new births. Business run by females will do better.
Inter-personal equations will be stagnant and will deteriorate fast if tempers are not controlled. Even time tested relationships will lack passion. The slightest provocation will collapse even solid harmony. Newly formed relationships will be formal and will lack faith – if not, watch out for the hidden skeletons.
Like in 2008, there will be too many natural calamities and man-made disasters. Water disasters (like contamination, floods, tsunamis, river banks overflowing, submergance, water pollution, oil spills) and fire hazards (like volcanic eruptions, bush fire, earth quakes, land slides, wild forest fires, terrorist bombings) will be on the increase. Electrical storms, overloads and blackouts are also possible. There could also be a lot of building collapses. Traffic accidents, disasters in construction sites and incidents like falling from high places will be quite common.
Environmental issues like global warming and saving earth will top the agendas of many countries and many new initiatives will be taken. Measures to improve farming and agriculture will be pursued vigorously. The year will see many notable tecnological breakthroughs and also advances in medical science.
The year will see the youth take over the reins from the old. Rulers will consolidate and slowly start the painful process of rebuilding and peace-making. Leaders will make a sincere attempt to come together to resolve issues.
Health problems pertaining to stomach (indigestion, meat contamination, food poisoning, diarrhea, etc.) and heart will be high. There will be increasing cases of diabetes and cancer with weight reduction becoming the highest debated issue. Succumbing to contagious illness will be more. There will be more birthing problems this year.
Homosexuality will make it to the news again and new rules and regulations will be made for them.
Fluctuating financial markets and volatile stock markets will fail to inspire confidance but the investors will learn to live with it by being cautious and conservative. In general, there will be high competition and low demands. Industries and trades that are expected to do well are : Finance, Food, Beverage & Eateries, Lotteries, Energy & Windmills, Office and Home Appliances, Nano Technology, Entertainment, Information Technology, Security, Environmentally Sensitive Gadgets and Energy Saving Devices. Travels, Tourism and Textiles will slow down considerably. Fields that might not do well are : Properties and Construction, Engineering, Shipping and Airlines, Minerals and Mining, Jewellery, Automobiles, Arts, Advertising and Insurance.
