    Looks like it's going to be a great year for Dragons albino


    DRAGON
    (1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012)
    This is the year that you’ve been waiting for, because when the Year of the Monkey meets the Dragon it really is a match made in heaven. There is something about the innovative Monkey that the Dragon loves and this means two things – good times and good news. The Monkey is smart and has the brains that the Dragon needs to bring its ambitious plans to fruition. Creative, smart but also realistic and flexible, the Monkey is able to provide the support to break big dreams and flamboyant ambitions down to manageable and doable chunks. Expect a year full of improvising, thinking on your feet, negotiating and even bargaining, with lots of things on the go. The biggest danger here is a sense of bravado that has you believing that you can do everything yourself, to a point where you might take on too much. You’ll therefore need to learn to delegate or ask for help when you need it, realising that it’s not a sign of weakness. This year talent, luck, support and determination come together to spell success. That is especially so on the work front, with plenty of opportunities to impress with your abilities, talent and determination, but more importantly there is a lot of luck and support when it comes to job growth. Don’t worry if you take a while to establish what you’re working towards, for that will evolve over the course of the year itself. Because of this there could be a change of job or possibly a promotion. A year that has the potential to be very successful, will see a lot of this play out on the professional front. While this lends itself to a lucrative year for income growth and that will be especially so around April and May, what makes this a good year for financial matters as a whole is the confidence to take money matters by the horns and take your power back. However, don’t expect a year that is all work and no play, for the Year of the Monkey is an especially good year for matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. This is also the ‘Marriage Year’ and especially so in the final four months of the year, when favourable conditions for both personal and professional relationship building will prevail. A good year for work, career, financial, romantic and relationship matters should have a down side? Well, if there is any downside it’s that your excuses are being challenged, especially if you try and remain in a rut or in your comfort zone. There is an opportunity for learning, travel and discovery, though you will have to work for it. All in all the Year of the Monkey is set to be a good year for the Dragon, full of joy, the potential for success and prosperity. The one downside is that it can’t be the Year of the Monkey every year.

    As the Lunar New Year of the Monkey swings into action Monday, fortune tellers foresee 12 months of political and financial turbulence at the hands of the mischievous, unpredictable creature.

    Hong Kong's respected feng shui masters expect an incendiary mix as the monkey combines with the fire element, but also say the year ahead will be a boom time for clever innovation and women will be in the ascendant.

    The monkey is seen as belonging to the hard metal element, while fire represents the sun, says Hong Kong-based celebrity feng shui master Alion Yeo.

    "When the two things combine, it creates an extremely high temperature. We have to be prepared for a lot of disputes, sickness," he told AFP.

    "One can even associate fire and metal with missiles, bullets or rockets," he said.

    Feng shui --- literally meaning "wind-water" -- is influential in many parts of Asia, where people adjust their lives and renovate offices and homes to maximise their luck and wealth according to its tenets.

    It is based on ancient philosophy and the belief that all events are dictated by the varying balances in the five elements that make up the universe: metal, wood, water, fire and earth.

    Feng shui masters in Hong Kong also combine astrology into their art.

    Hong Kong-based soothsayer Thierry Chow warned of shocking events at the hands of the "fire monkey".

    "Fire is dominant in the five elements. When fire is atop monkeys they will be swinging around, they will be difficult to predict. A lot of things will be unexpected," said Chow.

    The last fire monkey year happened in 1956, when Britain and France invaded Egypt during the Suez Canal crisis, a pivotal event that historians believe marked the demise of British imperial power.

    But while the monkey may bring instability, it could also herald major innovation, said Chow, as technology falls into the "fire" category.

    "There could be major breakthroughs in solar-powered energy, fire-related technologies, or the Internet," she told AFP.

    In its annual tongue-in-cheek "feng shui index", CLSA, one of Asia's leading brokerages, predicted a "volatile ride" for financial markets.

    "There are going to be a lot of ups and downs. The monkey is a creature who is tricky and cunning," Cherry Ma of the firm's feng shui team said.

    "There will be fluctuations but it also means opportunities for fast-movers," she said.

    The outgoing Year of the Sheep saw turbulence in global markets and a rout in China stocks with fears of an economic slowdown on the mainland.

    Yeo predicts February and August will be the roughest times for investors, as the months clash with the presiding cosmic deity of the year, known as the "Tai Sui".

    "There will be a transfer of wealth (in February and August)... money will be lost," Yeo said.

    "Women are compatible with the fire element. They will be empowered. They can go to the front of the stage or get promotions," says Chow.
