Gong hay fat choy! Happy New Year.

The Year of the Tiger begins February 14, 2010

The Tiger is the king of the jungle, widely admired for its vivid stripes that symbolize the balanced forces of yin and yang. One of the most dynamic signs in the zodiac, Tigers are a force of nature; they are fearless, dependable, tender, loving and utterly  unpredictable.

The Year of the Tiger will bring drama, intensity, change and travel. New inventions and incredible technological advances have a chance of  occurring. Things happen quickly and dramatically in Tiger years. Blink and you could miss the important chance of a lifetime! This is a year in which to be active. Grab on to opportunities and make the most of your individual talents.

Tiger's are deep thinkers who come out with perfect solutions even in toughest of situations. In business and personal life, their air of charismatic authority commands respect. Known for their considerate and forgiving nature, they make passionate lovers who fully open their heart to their loved ones. In family relationships, Tigers are very protective and will strike out at any real (or imagined) threat to home or children. They are emotional, kind and sensitive, but they can also be short-tempered, so best beware of  their temper.

Tigers are a competitive group, who are open to taking chances and  jumping into new opportunities. Thriving on unpredictability, Tigers are best suited to navigating the many upheavals predicted in the year  ahead. Those compatible with the Tiger - the Dragon and the Horse in  particular - may find 2010's erratic circumstances inspire them to ever  bolder action, and ultimate success. Individuals born under other signs will be affected, depending on their  flexibility to change. Those who can keep a steady hand on the helm may  be shaken, but undeterred, by the typically thunderous events foreseen  in any Tiger year. Remember, though, that whatever the omens portend,  you alone are the final master of your fate.

The Lunar New Year is one of the most important holidays in all of Asia. It lasts 2  weeks; friends and relatives are visited, parades and festivities  abound, houses are decorated, special foods are eaten and there are things to avoid. To bring wealth, happiness and fortune: eat dumplings, melon seeds and candy. Decorate your house with peach blossoms for luck, kumquat plants for prosperity, and chrysanthemum for longevity. Open windows and doors to bring in the good luck of the new year and put up red good luck symbols. Don't sweep the house though, or you'll sweep out the luck you've carefully accumulated. Have a good time, enjoy yourself and bring in the new year with happiness and celebration.
