While I like the idea of the year of the Rabbit, I am not convinced that those chinese astrologers are fair dinkum! I mean they are predicting that the year of the rabbit will mean more Cradle Snatching & Extramarital affairs. That is not really Psychic, given the world’s current distribution of Top heavy Baby boomers with a much smaller demographics of Gen X & Y & Zs! I don’t think I need the planets to project that “sad ” guys in the middle of a mid-life crisis will be trying to score a younger trophy fling?
In turn, maybe that might lead to MORE MARRIAGEs given there might be a rise in Divorcse also from all the Rabbit Cheating! Hahaha.
Then there’s the prediction about more Climate Problems, because of the absence of “Water ” & “Earth” in the year of the Rabbit. Well, maybe its just the absence of responsible governments who have failed to meet Kyoto targets for the last 10 years and Carbon Trading our future for a few fast deals with as many dictatorships as possible?
Did they just click on Youtube and figured out Queensland Australia is in a crisis state now and then went,”Ah, the year of the Rabbit!” and then “Now , grease my palm with a golden coin !”
Those special astrologers also predicted a year that will be good for Diplomacy! Wow, given the number of Civil disobedience in the month of January alone on this planet…yeah, it probably has sent the “clamour” for diplomacy into an over-drive!
I like the bit about “Sell all your stocks by October if you must invest in stocks and buy houses if you have the dosh”! No kidding! With housing market being on an all-time slump and Stocks beings volatile and a projected Double-dip recession going on in early half of 2011, all I can say is “DUH, FRED!” Did those astrologers just read a few articles in Financial times and left it at that?
Then there’s that bizarre discussion about how Rabbits who want to start a business should find a “Dog” as a partner. Okay…but am I really going to check the astrology of someone if they want to invest in my Social Enterprise? Or am I really allowed to , BY LAW, advertise: “Partners in Crime needed, must be a Chinese astrological Dog.”
It seems to me, all this can just be commonsense. But okay, just in case, I am going to put a Yellow gourd next to my home office desk to ward away illness. I will go out and Buy a Yellow Handbag and Yellow shoes and wear LOTS of Yellow! Luckily its the color of one of my favorite vintage Versace raincoat..what with all the climate change and rain we will be expecting! 😛
But I think I’m okay because I have a giant overfed pet Bunny that is kind of Yellow-ish Beige…so he will bring me luck, as long as he is not angry with me once I take him to the Vet and get his little balls cut off! 🙂
Happy Chinese New Year of the Rabbit! Don’t believe everything you read! lol. ENJOY The wonderful Fireworks in Hong Kong! It is the ONLY City in China that honors Free Speech & the Right to make fun of and argue with our Government! Hurrah! Lets keep it that way!
