Is Your Animal Sign Lucky This Year Of The Earth Boar? Feng Shui Master Marites Allen Has The Answers

The Year of the Earth Boar is the perfect time to reflect and reminisce on the past 12 years, as it completes the cycle of the Chinese zodiac, and prepares us for another cycle next year. The general atmosphere for this year is predicted to be more relaxed and festive, so most of the animal signs can look forward to an overall joyful 2019.

The personality and energies of the Earth Boar will have an influence on this lunar year; its charismatic, positive, and reasonable traits make for a goal-oriented Boar who proceeds with confidence and enthusiasm, while its dependable and loyal nature is the reason it cherishes friendship and family. The Earth element of the year is in its Yin form, which has the tendency to stabilize and carry positive energies throughout the year, making this a time to be modest and flexible, and to reflect deeply and spiritually.

This year’s dominant colors are red and green: Red to symbolize Fire energy, festivity, and good luck, and green for the Wood element for growth and progress. Given the dominance of the Earth element, beiges and neutrals are also favorable hues. The year will have different effects on each sign, so see what’s in store for you!

Single Rats are likely to find a favorable romantic opportunity this year, while those who are taken have many reasons to celebrate with their partners.

Annual Flying Star: #2 Illness Star


Hard workers by nature, Ox-born individuals are prone to becoming tired and lethargic this year. Also be wary of your physical and mental health, due to the increased threat of the Illness Star increasing likelihood of a recurring illness or the development of new ones. More susceptible to feeling restless or feeling a loss of interest in your usual activities, be careful with your finances and avoid taking big actions in business; best to stick to your comfort zone this year. Nevertheless, remain socially active, as you can expect exciting encounters with new people. Pursue meaningful relationships, but be conscious of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to avoid high health risks.

The ancient symbol to help promote successful endeavors in your career:

Annual Flying Star: #2 Illness Star


Overall, 2019 should be a reasonably good year for the Tiger, but not without the threat of the Illness Star. Though not at risk throughout the whole year, expect some months where health problems may arise. For those previously diagnosed with illness, be mindful as these may recur. Nevertheless, this is a lucky time for your career, so stay productive and your efforts will be rewarded. Should you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, ask help from family and friends. Loving energies are also at an all-time high this year, so expect to see growth in your relationships.

While wood promotes the production of fire and its positive energies, the wu lou serves as a symbol for health and longevity.

Annual Flying Star: #6 Heaven Luck Star


After an unfavorable 2018, Rabbits should expect good luck in 2019. With the Heavenly Luck Star working in your favor, you can get anything and everything you want, without even asking—but within reason. While you’re lucky financially and professionally, be wary of overspending and competition in the workplace. The first quarter of the year is a favorable time for investments in profitable ventures, but avoid unnecessary expenses. Single Rabbits may have several encounters this year, but a long-term relationship is unlikely. Those already in relationships should be careful as weakening energies may lead to complacency and, eventuall,y neglect. Avoid sickness by maintaining a healthy, balanced life.

Without a beginning or an end, this will help keep your luck infinite and continuous:

Annual Flying Star: #7 Violence, Robbery, and Injury Star


With the presence of the Violence, Robbery, and Injury Star, the Dragon is at a high risk for robbery in 2019. Eyes are on you, so be extra cautious with your information, belongings, and ideas. Be prudent with your finances, and avoid making big investments and unnecessary purchases, and take caution in making business deals, as you and your company may suffer losses and struggle with legal issues. However, develop your personal network as you can rely on your colleagues for support. Your romantic life will be happy, as the loving energies are strong in your sign.

The animal pairing is a feng shui symbol for protection, particularly from robberies and accidents.

Annual Flying Star: #7 Violence, Robbery, and Injury Star


It is best for Snakes to take it easy in 2019! Keep your cool and stay away from anything that may bring more complications into your life. Your luck is also low in the romance department, so if you are in a relationship, exercise patience. There is a high risk of robbery or losing money this year, so be careful with your finances. A source of much stress will be at work, where you might feel stiff competition with colleagues. If you are considering a move or a change in career, this is the time to do it. Pursue more charitable endeavors.

The powerful Buddhist mantra and the evil eye will help manifest blessings and keep you protected from harm.

Annual Flying Star: #3 Conflict Star


Good fortune is on the side of the Horse, but with the Conflict Star in your sign, you are at a high risk for misunderstandings and gossip. Watch your temper and be wary of jealousy at work, as others might be envious of your successes. Beware of a falling out with loved ones, and be more proactive in connecting with old and new friends. Romantic pursuits and financial rewards are abundant, so seize opportunities, as offers will come when least expected.

Avoid conflicts with the Chinese symbol for peace and harmony.

Annual Flying Star: #5 Misfortune Star


The Sheep should take it easy in 2019, as the sign is plagued year-round with the Misfortune Star, the most dreaded of the unlucky stars, as it means trouble in health, relationships, business, career, and finances. Avoid further conflict from arising by appreciating your present relationships: Single Sheep should be content as they are, and those who are taken should recognize more joy and meaning in their lives. Pay attention to details when making deals and agreements, and make sure to plan and budget carefully to avoid financial challenges. Lastly, take care and stay vigilant when it comes to your well-being.

With your luck running low this year, borrow some luck from your allies, the Rabbit and Boar.

(1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016)

Annual Flying Star: #5 Misfortune Star


Despite the presence of the Misfortune Star, Monkey-born individuals can make it big in several aspects of life with careful strategizing. The Prosperity Star’s presence suggests possible financial gains on the horizon, particularly from profitable endeavors, but play it safe when it comes to your career. Be wary of the people around you, as some of them might take advantage of you and your connections or even mar your reputation. Romantic opportunities are in store for single and taken Monkeys, so take care as this could be problematic. It’s a hectic year, so keep your strength and spirit up as much as possible.

This mantra is believed to promote prosperity and good fortune while repelling the wearer from all kinds of harm.

Annual Flying Star: #1 White (Fulfillment and Achievement) Star


Finally, a lucky year for the Roosters! It’s time to make changes, so let go of old anxieties and past mistakes. Expect favorable opportunities for financial gains, as well as career and academic success—so take the lead or start a new venture. However, stay vigilant to avoid betrayal or financial losses. There is a chance for a falling out with a long-time friend, but single Roosters should stay sociable to find relationship opportunities. Roosters in relationships can plan on taking the next step and settle down with a partner this year. Establish work-life balance in order to maintain good health throughout the busy year.

Annual Flying Star: #9 Magnifying Star


It’s time for introspection for Dogs in 2019, as you question yourself and your life. Maximize your luck this year by being flexible and hardworking in achieving your goals. Make time for rest, and use the time off for traveling or a romantic vacation with your partner. Surround yourself with positive people, and single Dogs might find themselves a partner, perhaps in activities outside your comfort zone. You are lucky in your career, so don’t hesitate to pursue your goals. Just don’t overwork yourself to avoid illness.

Annual Flying Star: #9 Magnifying Star


This is an auspicious year for the returning Boar, so plan carefully to reap the benefits of your hard work. This year has much promise for you, but better err on the side of caution in all aspects of your life. Many new exciting opportunities will come, and pursuing a new venture can be favorable, so long as it is within a realm you are familiar with. If you are a single Boar determined to start a relationship with someone new, be careful when letting that person into your life. If you are in a relationship, this is a good time to take the next step. This is also a good time to reflect on friendships and relationships with colleagues, as those who have proven their loyalty through the years are sources of great support during rough times. Make sure you are in tip-top shape, so you can pursue your goals.

A symbol for good luck and prosperity, celebrate your sign’s year!
