What's in Store for the Year of the Fire Boar?

Posted by Angi Ma Wong on Tuesday, 30 January 2007.

It's the Year of the Fire Boar. What''s in store for you?

The year of the Fire Boar begins on February 18, 2007. The predictions for each lunar year, is calculated by the relationships of the five elements and how they relate to each other during the reign of the zodiac animal of the year.

The Year 4705 of Boar reveals that the two elements in place are fire on top of water. In the relationship of these two elements, it is one of conflict as water will extinguish fire, thus destroying it, portending international disharmony, tension and conflicts. But the Boar is of the water element, which gives birth to the wood element, representing germination that results in new life and beginnings so there is the possibility of new relationships and partnerships, traveling which will stimulate tourism and moving.

The Boar is the symbol of prosperity of industries that are governed by the element of earth such as property, mining, hotel, chemicals, insurance and those of the metal element including machinery, computer, high tech industries, skincare and health-related businesses. Wood-related businesses such as textiles, fashion, books, publications, paper, forestry, and furniture will continue to prosper as they did in 2006, but not as strongly.

The prospects are less optimistic for water and fire-related businesses and industries such as shipping, communication, drinks, stocks, finance, energy, electricity, entertainment, and airlines.

Health challenges encountered this year will be related to high blood pressure, heart burn, inflammation, diabetes, and kidney problems. Take recommended dosages of antioxidants, omega 3 oil or COQ10 and drink green tea.
