Turn Back The Clock - Johnny Hates Jazz



Another day is ended
And I still can't sleep
Remembering my yesterdays
I begin to weep
If I could have it over
Live my life again
I wouldn't change a single day

CHORUS:
I wish that I could turn back the clock
Bring the wheels of time to a stop
Back to the days when life was so much better

Lying here in silence
Picture in my hand
Of a boy I still resemble
But I no longer understand
And as the tears run freely
How I realise they were the best years of my life

CHORUS

You might say it's just
A case of giving up
No
But without these memories where is the love
Where is the love

If I could have it over
Live my life again
I wouldn't change a single day

CHORUS

Why can't I turn back the clock
Bring the wheels of time to a stop
Back to the days
Oh no no
I remember when
Life was so good
I'd go back if I could
Oh oh I wouldn't change a single day
Don't let the memories slip away
I wouldn't change a single day
Don't let the memories slip away

Luck in 2010 : Zodiac Rat

2010 Chinese Horoscope for people born in Rat years: 1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008.

If your birthday is before February 4, then your astrological sign is Pig, not Rat.

When Rat people meet Tiger year, they will be running around all the time. This is because Tiger is the Travel Star to Rat In Chinese Horoscope. This implies that Rat people will be busy in 2010 and might have to travel more or work far away for their jobs. Since they might work longer hours or overtime, they will feel lonely especially while traveling. If Rat people need to drive on work, then they have to drive carefully to prevent trouble related to law. Rat people need to use more brain power for the daily activity during the spring. But they will gain help and support after summer.

Career: Rat people don't have any significant career sign in 2010. Some troubles or obstacles might appear to keep your job busy. Don't put your career expectation too high. You need to think twice before leaping for any career opportunity. Your enemy might talk about your bad reputation behind your back. As long as you do things slowly and surely, your career will stabilize. People who appreciate, care, and support you also will appear often between April and October. In general, the career luck will be up and down. You can obtain your return, but you need to work hard.

Money: There is a hidden Money Star inside the Tiger for Rat people. But the Money is required your performance and achievement to get it. We know Tiger will keep Rat people busy. That means the more active you are, the more money you earn. Since the money comes from your hardship, you need to watch your expenses. If you have extra savings, then it's fine for the long term investment. But you need to consider twice or say no if your friends or relatives ask for a short term loan. The money luck is not that good, you don't have to push yourself too much and impact your health.

Love: Rat people don't have Romantic or Love sign appearing in 2010. If you are in love, then relationship development won't be that smooth. You might encounter some obstacles and pressure. It's normal that sometimes you feel a little bit lonely, because of Tiger. If you are a married person and face job pressure often, then you need to control your emotion in your family. Otherwise, it's easy to create an argument at home and impact the family's harmony. If you haven't found your true love yet, then you might have better chance in April or August to meet someone you can talk with.

Health: One Unlucky Star related to health is coming to Rat people's life in year of Tiger. Something unexpected might happen to you and affect your emotion. Plus, the pressure from your job or business, you must watch for your health. You need to learn how to take a break for your work, spend some time for entertainment or join friend's party to relax yourself. Try to avoid any disputes with people, as it will impact your health, especially in May. If you don't have any health issues, then an elder or someone close to you might have poor health in 2010.

Fortune: Rat people will have much lesser pressure than last year. The most important factor has to pay attention is the health. This is because Tiger year will make you busy and you need a good health to handle the pressure. If you like to solve problems, remove the hinder, and challenge troubles, then 2010 will be a good year to you. If you don't like to face trouble, then 2010 is still a fair year to you, because your helper will appear after you cannot find the solution for the trouble.

Traveling, overwork, overtime, moonlighting jobs are good signs for the career. If the job is there, then the money comes into your door. But the stable income doesn't mean a good money luck. You still need to watch your spending and investment. If you are too greedy, it might cause a money loss. You will be busy and will be full of activities in your daily life. Therefore, people can see whatever you speak, act and perform. Your performance can determine your career or reputation. If you don't do your work in a smart way, your image will be damaged too. People born in 1996 will have good performance in school.

Death In The Family

Its Still Chinese New Year (its a 15days long celebration) and we just had great fun yesterday visiting my uncle's family, who took care of me since birth.

A time to celebrate has become a time to mourn. Did not feel well after hearing that Allan's auntie's condition got worse yesterday.

This morning, intended to call her daughter to find out her condition, but my MIL beats me to the phone and called us instead at about 11am, breaking the bad news. "Auntie has passed away." Read here for details.

Allan is on his way to 'Welcome Her Home' at the wake now. Thereafter, he will be back home to change and wash up before he meets his client at 3pm. Right after which my family of four will be down to meet the mourning family.

Love: Pig people have very good public relationship during the Tiger year. Their social activities will increase. This is a good opportunity for single Pig people to meet someone they can talk with.

Quiz - 14

At last month's pre-Olympic rehearsal, four top athletes competed in two qualifying 400 metre races. As the results were expected to be mislaid, various notes were taken to ensure the accuracy of the overall placings:

No-one finished both races in the same position. John beat Mr Donald in both races. Steve Curtail came third in the second race and Dave came last in the first race. In the second race, Mr Arnold won and Mr Bowler came last. In the first race, Steve beat Kev, but Kev beat John.

Can you determine who finished where in each of the races?

The Worst Mistake

The Worst Mistake that anyone could make is to Jump to Conclusion without knowing the Real Facts.

I guess that's just life isn't it?
Friends and Family members do misunderstood us sometimes.

Yet I believe in something.
If a lie was told, it will be revealed sooner or later.

I used to jump to conclusions and I paid a high price for it. Even after I had apologized, the crack in the relationship remained. Its a STUPID thing to do. And I had 'Trained' myself to STOP doing that.

I ask when I am in doubt.
I seek answers till I am satisfied.
That's me.

To be maligned is a horrible feeling. The worst part is I wasn't even given a chance to speak and I was condemned.

What keeps me alive and going is a Clear Conscience!
I do NOT need to answer to anyone!
I am NOT obligated to answer anyway! Because in the first place I was NOT even given a chance to explain myself!

Now, how unfair is that!?

Do a judge put a man to be hanged without allowing him to fight for himself? NO!
So why are people so cruel to people?!

Luck in 2010: Zodiac Dog

2010 Chinese Horoscope for people born in Dog years: 1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006.

If your birthday is before February 4, then your astrological sign is Chicken, not Dog.

In 2009, Dog and Cow have fighting relationship. Dog people shouldn't have good people relationship in year of Cow. The fortune of 2010 for Dog people is fair because there is no major Lucky Star coming. But 2010 is the time for Dog people to show their talent to others. Dog people don't have to push themselves too much for higher expectation. They can do things slowly but surely to prevent any mistakes that may cause additional loss. Building better people relationships is the key to enhance money luck and release career pressure.

Career: There is a Lucky Flower Star appearing in the year of Tiger. That means Dog people will become more intelligent. They can express clearly to people about their ideas, creations, designs or writing. Therefore, people will respect Dog people's inspiration and talent. There might be a job opportunity there. However, you don't have any Lucky Helper Star in 2010. Either there is no opening position suitable for your talent or there is no supporters to praise and recognize your effort. It's possible that you won't have a good chance for promotion. But people will remember your performance and they will give you credit later. This tells us that Dog people don't have to urge to find a new job in the year of Tiger.

Money: The Flower Star helps you to deliver your talent to people. And you will gain good reputation from there. The reputation will help you to build more business or money income. But this Flower Star is related to art, advertising, design, performance, stage, writing, music, acting, and the marketing business. The traditional trading business cannot take too much advantage from it. There is no strong Money sign in 2010. Dog people cannot do the short-term risky investment. There is no easy money from lottery, gamble or windfall. In general, Dog people should focus on their stable salary income.

Love: Dog and Metal Tiger together have a special relationship to increase people's popularity. That means Dog people's reputation brings them the chances to meet new friends. But the love relationship doesn't end up too strong, because of a Lonely Star appearing in 2010. It looks that Dog people focus on their presentation, appearance or public relationship, not their love. It's hard for single Dog people to find a match. If Dog people already have a relationship, then the relationship will be like mixing hot and cold. This is because Dog people prefer the freedom and wouldn't tie up with a relationship in 2010. The married Dog people might put their spouse aside and focus on their career and performance.

Health: There is no major heath issue on Dog people. Some Dog people will easily get nervous in the Tiger year. They need to find a way to relax themselves often. Also there is an unlucky White Tiger Star appearing in 2010. Tiger is an unpredictable animal for its emotion. The White Tiger is a sign of pressure and accident. Therefore, Dog people need to pay attention on their safety at work, at home, traveling, hiking, driving, swimming and diving to prevent any accident to cause the injury. Some experts suggest that a teeth cleaning or a blood donation can help people to avoid the injury bad luck.

Fortune: The major highlights for Dog people in 2010 is the reputation and career. Dog people will do fine for their people relationship. Plus, showing their talent, Dog people should have good reputation in year of Tiger. Without strong career luck, Dog people may become impatient and irritate their career future. But the strategy for Dog people in 2010 is defense, not offense. They shouldn't push their luck in career. Dog people should concentrate on their safety or negligence to avoid unnecessary loss.

Luck in 2010: Zodiac Chicken

2010 Chinese Horoscope for people born in Chicken years: 1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005.

If your birthday is before February 4, then your astrological sign is Monkey, not Chicken.

The lucky Purple Star and Dragon Star come for Chicken people in 2010. They indicate that power, support and leadership may fall upon your shoulders. This is a very good sign for your career; there is a chance of promotion or even pay raise. Therefore, money luck comes after career. Your wealth will increase mainly from your salary, not from the easy investment. However, there is an Unlucky Loss Star hiding in the corner. That means there is a chance of failure because of your mistake or negligence. In the year of Metal Tiger, the personality of Chicken people will become more domineering, arrogant and irritable. This makes it easy to have arguments with Chicken people. The social relationship is very important for Chicken people in this year. The poor people relationship might turn the fortune of Tiger year into a different direction. Therefore, Chicken people need to watch their words and deeds in 2010.

Career: The Purple Star appears in the year of Tiger. This means that Chicken people will have the chance to show their talent to people and have the opportunity to act in a leadership role. The Dragon Star implies Chicken people can get help whenever they encounter an obstacle or trouble. Therefore, the career luck is for Chicken people is pretty good. Their job responsibilities will increase and the power of position will expand. A job promotion, job relocation or pay raise are possible. Because another Big Loss Star coming in the same year, there is a chance of up and down in the career path in 2010. Chicken people will have a stronger, determined and domineering personality. It's very important for Chicken people to pay attention with their expressions and behaviors when dealing with people to eliminate the chance that your enemies may stab you in the back.

Money: Chicken people have good money luck in the Metal Tiger year. The major income will come from your career. If you own a business, then Purple Star and Dragon Star will help you to bring in more customers and increase your business profit. If you work for someone, in order to increase more income, you still need the help from your friends, supporters or helpers around. Since the Unlucky Star is there, the money luck might have a chance to become unstable. Therefore, Chicken people still need to watch for the budget and do extra savings, in case that you need a big unexpected expense in the near future. Chicken people shouldn't do any short-term risky investment. There is no lottery, gambling or windfall luck in 2010.

Love: There is no particular Love Star or Romantic Star coming into Chicken people's lives. Therefore, if you are single, then you need to be patience for wait for your true love. It's tough to find someone you like by yourself. But you will have more chance to find a good match who is introduced by your friends or someone always cares you. If you have girl friend or boy friend, then your love relationship will be up and down. Chicken people need to control their temper to avoid the argument and possibly ruin the relationship. Married people might focus more on career and forget about expressing love to their spouses.

Health: The health of Chicken people is fair in 2010. It's easy for Chicken people get scared or shocked in the Tiger year. One Unlucky Star implies that Chicken people have a chance to get accident. If there is an injury, it might be related to Metal. Therefore, Chicken people need to pay attention on the safety at home, at work, traveling and driving. Since you have the Dragon Star and Purple Star in 2010, therefore any health issue shouldn't become a big problem.

Fortune: Basically, Chicken people have a good luck in year of Tiger, because of two major Lucky Stars. The major event in the Metal Tiger year is related to money. The money is connected to friends, siblings, money and father. It's also connected to spouse for male Chicken people. That means your money luck determined by the relationship with them. Therefore, you need to maintain good social and family relationships. There is a chance that Tiger year brings Chicken people good career luck and money luck together. But Chicken people shouldn't become arrogant, self-satisfied or conceited. Your speeches and actions might change your fortune in 2010. It's possible that a mistake can cause the loss of a job, money loss, a broken heart or even an injury.

Luck in 2010: Zodiac Monkey

2010 Chinese Horoscope for people born in Monkey years: 1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004.

If your birthday is before February 4, then your astrological sign is Sheep, not Monkey.


Monkey is too active, so Tiger doesn't like Monkey. Tiger and Monkey have fighting relationship in Chinese horoscope. This is not a good sign for Monkey people in 2010. There is a Travel Star coming in the year of Tiger. That implies that you will be busy for your work, your business or your people relationship all year long. Your busy schedule doesn't guarantee a good return from your time and energy, because an unstable sign is there. Some other Unlucky Stars also come to Monkey people. There is money luck from salary, but with a sign of money loss. The love relationship is up and down. Since Monkey people will have more outdoor activities, they have to pay attention the safety while traveling or driving. Fortunately, one Lucky Helper Star also appearing in year of Tiger. Hopefully, Monkey people can find someone to help when they encounter a big trouble.

Career: Because of the appearance of the Travel Star, Monkey people have to work hard and are very busy for money. They will have more coordination, discussion, visiting, interview tasks in the office. They might have to visit their clients more often, travel out of town for errands, or even go abroad for business trips. The job income will come from the traveling. Because of a tight schedule, Monkey people should plan well for each traveling. Otherwise, they might have to do something twice and create more frustrations for their time. There is a chance to find a new job position. But you need to evaluate the new career position carefully before quitting the current job. This is because that Tiger won't let things go smoothly for Monkey people's business. In general, the motto of the career luck is moving with caution is a better than standing still.

Money: There is a Money Star appearing in 2010 for Monkey people. That indicates Monkey people have money opportunity. However, the money luck is fair. You don't have good luck in easy investments, lottery or gambling. The major money income is from your regular job. As long as your job keeps you busy, then you will have a stable salary income. One Unlucky Star shows the sign of money loss. Therefore, Monkey people should avoid short-term risky investment. Next, Monkey people shouldn't provide a loan or endorse financial assistance on any contract to friends or relatives. When the money becomes an issue, then your friendships will hurt a lot. Monkey people also need to stay alert for safety while traveling. Any accident might cause you a big money loss.

Love: Because Money and Tiger cannot get along well at all, the people relationship of Monkey People is very poor in 2010. If you are single, you need to be patient while waiting for your true love. You might have more chances to meet someone while traveling. So you can increase your social activities that are outdoors to enhance your romantic luck. If you have a girl friend or boy friend, then your love relationship will be like mixing hot and cold. This is a temporary sign from 2010, the relationship will improve in 2011 as long as you can keep it. If you are discussing the marriage, then you need to spend time and focus on this event and make a firm and quick decision. Otherwise, many tiny issues will become big troubles. If you are married, then you should remember to express your love and concern to your spouse often even if you are very busy with your career or you are out of town for an errand.

Health: The career sign shows Monkey people might have to spend more time for their daily jobs. Therefore, Monkey people need to remember to take a break to save their energy during their busy schedules. Another thing is that Monkey people must pay attention to the safety at work or travel. The reason is that an Unlucky Star shows a chance of body exhaustion, accident or injury in the year of Tiger. As long as you care about your safety and health, you should be fine, because a Lucky Helper Star is still around. Also, Monkey people need to try avoid water related activities at rivers, beaches, lakes or oceans. A pregnant woman needs to pay attention to the health of the baby.

Fortune: The major event of Monkey people in 2010 is the money. All the pressure from the career is for the money income. The tension of the job is up and down. Your mood and emotion will become unstable. Since a Lucky Star appearing in this year, many jobs will show difficulty at the beginning, but will become easier later. The money comes in a hard way. Therefore Monkey people need to budget their expense and save extra earnings for emergency use. Even if you have extra money, then do not loan money to anyone without a collateral value. Certainly, do not get a loan from people for your investment. Next, Monkey people need to manage their social relationships carefully in the year of Tiger. Bad people relationships might impact your money luck. People who have poor money luck usually won't have a good love relationship. Therefore, the key for Monkey people's fortune in the Tiger year is to build good people relationship and avoid any competition and/or arguments with your enemies.

Chinese New Year 2010

This year's pre-Chinese New Year was much less extravagant then previous. All we did was:

Soak Ourselves in Prespiration, Shopping in Chinatown:-


Look at my 4year old boy (in yellow shorts),
who totally ignored his walked-away Father and Brother;
Completely mesmerized by his favourite Lion Dance Heads Displayed at the Shop Front! *laugh*


The beautiful Decorations...


And the thousands of people! We were literally pushed along.
Had no chance to take a photo of how sandwiched we were
between people of all races and tourists.
But once we managed to get out of that uncomfortable zone.....
- SNAPPED, I took a quick shot!

=========================


And watching long queues of people....
just to get a box or a DOZEN boxes of "Rou Gan"
(barbecued sliced pork). *faint*



Today my family is going to have reunion dinner at a very special place. For the very first time, we decided to have our reunion dinner OUTSIDE! *wink*

Its a BIG change for us.... *Smile*

Luck in 2010: Zodiac Sheep

2010 Chinese Horoscope for people born in Sheep years: 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003.

If your birthday is before February 4, then your astrological sign is Horse, not Sheep.

Sheep people shouldn't have had any great fortune in 2009, year of Cow. This is because Cow and Sheep have a fighting relationship, which brings very poor luck to people. In 2010, year of Tiger, there are many Lucky Stars coming into Sheep people's life. Those signs shows Sheep people have good career luck, people relationship, financial status and love relationship in 2010. However, when Sheep meets Tiger, sheep always have pressure. Therefore, Sheep people need to become smarter and act stronger during the Tiger year. Then 2010 will be an easy year for them.


Career: Tiger brings Sheep pressure. Therefore, career pressure will exist during the year of Tiger. The good news is you have a job. The better news is you have a two Sky Helper and Moon Helper Stars in 2010. Whenever you have difficulty or trouble in your task, you can get help from people close to you. Also, you will become smarter in the Metal Tiger. You will have more creativity or have an outstanding idea to show people. Then you will gain the reputation from your boss and coworkers. If you have any chance to sign a contract for your business or career future, then you have better advice from people. Make sure you understand the contract to avoid any entanglement in agreement later.

Money: Sheep people have both Moon Star and Happy Star appearing in the Metal Tiger year. This clearly means that your talent, performance and reputation bring good income for you in 2010. If you own a business, then you will see your business booming and your profit growing. However, you cannot gamble your money luck into a short-term risky investment.

They are Power Star, Scholarship Star and Financial Star. That means career opportunity, good reputation and money luck are pretty good in the year of Tiger. Plus, people and love relationships are good in 2010. The only bad news for Horse people is that the villains are still around. Since you have good income, they are quite interested in your money. Therefore, do not covet the a small profit, otherwise it will return to you as a big money loss. Then it follows up with an argument or poor health.

Career: There is a Power Star appearing in 2010. This Power Star stands for leadership, management and decision-making. It's very clear that a job opportunity is waiting for Horse people. In the year of the Tiger, Horse people's job responsibility will increase. Your project will go smoothly, your schedule will be under your control and the progress will be satisfactory. If you need help, then people will be around. As long as your business development direction meets the company's expectation, then there is a chance of promotion. However, you still need to pay attention on job detail. Any negligence or mistake you make will provide the chance for your enemy to block your career path.

Money: A Financial Star related to money management comes to Horse people. That implies you have more money income and you will consider money investment or money management. Metal Tiger year also contains a sign of money. That means you will spend more time on money related events than the previous year. The money luck is good, but you still have the chance to lose money in the other end. Because you are richer, villains behind you are waiting for your donation. Don't make any contribution for the reason of saving face. Don't be greedy or lazy to invest money without studying the business opportunity. Thus, Horse people will have good savings in the year of Tiger.

Love: In Chinese Horoscope, Horse and Tiger have attraction relationship. That indicates Horse people have good social relationship in 2010. If you are single, then it's easy to find a person you can talk with. Later both of you will get along pretty well. If you already have girl friend or boy friend, then your love relationship will become even closer. But there is no Love Star or Romantic Star appearing in 2010. Also, your career will make you a little busy. The chance of marriage is not that high.

Health: Basically, the health of Horse people is fine in year of Tiger. But the Unlucky Star lets Horse people sometimes doubt about their heath in 2010. The highest chance for Horse people to be weak is from their heavy responsibility or pressure from their job. The Unlucky Star shows darkness and is unfavorable to Horse people. Therefore you shouldn't do overtime too often and then come home very late. Also, you should refuse invitations to join parties at night. If you can, don't visit sick people or attend a funeral.

Fortune: Horse people have more good news than bad news in 2010. Career and money are major events to you. In career, you need to learn the leadership communication and management skills to build your people connections and career relationships. Then a job promotion or pay raise are possible. The money luck will come after the career's accomplishment. Meanwhile, you still need to focus on your moves all the time to prevent any mistakes caused by neglect.

Luck in 2010: Zodiac Snake

2010 Chinese Horoscope for people born in Snake years: 1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001.

If your birthday is before February 4, then your astrological sign is Dragon, not Snake.

Snake and Tiger don't fight face to face. But Snake and Tiger cannot get along too well. This implies that Snake's public relationship is very poor in 2010, year of Tiger. Poor people relationship will impact career opportunity, business promotion and love relationship. Therefore, Snake people will lack a peaceful mind and happy mood in 2010. Some Lucky Stars gather in Love area. Snake people need to avoid any argument with boy/girl friends, spouse, close family members or business partners. They must control their temper and emotion when things go wrong. Otherwise, it will be very easy to lose friendships, love, business relationships or career opportunities.


Career: The career luck is fair to Snake people in 2010. There is a sign connected to your boss or senior coworker in the office. You will spend more hours and work with them often. If they really help your task, then your job is safe and you have salary income. If they bring you trouble and slow down your schedule, then you might transfer to a different position. Snake people have better double check their tasks before delivery. Since people relationship is poor, you shouldn't let your enemies take advantage on your negligence or mistake. This can prevent from later unnecessary arguments. If you own your business, then your investment return in research or marketing won't reach your expectation. Your business approach needs to follow the law to prevent from any lawsuit.

Money: The good news for Snake people about money is the money opportunity there. The bad news is money luck is limited because of your poor social skills or business connections. If you work for someone, the major income is your salary. Unless you can work for extra hours, you won't get any easy money. Do not think about short-term investment giving you a quick return. There is a chance that you have to spend money on your mother, mother-in-law or female elders in your family. If you own a company, then company earnings from sales won't increase easily. You might have to spend additional money on company's equipments or decorations. Salesladies can do the better marketing job for you. Or female clients can help you to increase the sales.

Love: When Snake meets Tiger, Snake doesn't have a good mood for love relationship. It's easy for Snake people to have disagreement or argument with people in 2010. They will feel as if villains are always around. Single Snake people need the patience to find their true love. People who have a boy or girl friend don't need to push their relationship closer in year of Tiger. If there is any quarrel from married people, Snake people need to control their emotion to avoid the love relationship going south. More than one Unlucky Star show up in the marriage area. If any big trouble in marriage life is hard to settle, then Snake people can ask their parents, mentors or elders to help.

Health: There is no problem in the health area for Snake people in 2010. The only thing might impact your health is because of your bad temper from arguments, complaints, office competition or law event. The dark is unfavorable to Snake people. If Snake people have a party at night, they shouldn't go home too late. The best is to refuse to attend any social meetings at night. When driving, Snake people need to focus on safety. If any accident happens, then it might be related to Metal. Since Snake people can get bad mood easily in year of Tiger, they should ask friends to go with them to a suburban are to relax themselves to get rid of the physical and mental burdens.

Fortune: The people relationship is the key to determine the fortune of Snake people in 2010. If you have poor public connection, then your bad emotion will impact your career, money and love area. If you have an argument with someone, then you have more chance to become the loser because of lesser supporters. If your Chinese astrology birth chart has a Monkey sign, then you need to pay more attention to your people relationships. On the other hand, if you know how to deal with your temper and passion, then all the opportunities in 2010 are open to you.

There is a lucky Moon Star appearing in 2010 for Snake people. If Snake people need help from others, they can try to find a female mentor or an older female. However, do not find Tiger people to help them for social, love, financial or business relationship.

Luck in 2010: Zodiac Dragon

2010 Chinese Horoscope for people born in Dragon years: 1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000.

If your birthday is before February 4, then your astrological sign is Rabbit, not Dragon.


Dragon and Tiger have their powers on their own territory. When Dragon meets Tiger, they respect each other. They usually don't fight unless different animals have affinity relationship with them. That means Dragon won't get any benefit from Tiger. This implies the fortune of most Dragon people in 2010 is fair. Also, this Metal Tiger year brings more Unlucky Stars than Lucky Stars to Dragon people. Therefore, Dragon people need to stay alert on their investments, keep focusing on their daily work, and watch their words and behaviors in their social life to avoid any indiscretion to cause money loss. There is no Love Sign showing for Dragon people in 2010. The health of Dragon people in the Tiger year will be fine, but they need to pay more attention on the health of family members.

Career: One Lucky Star appears in Career area. It indicates that your position power or job responsibility will increase. But it comes with one Unlucky Star which stands for disagreement or argument with people. The Metal Tiger is a good year to show your talent, express your idea and emphasize your performance to the people. There is a chance that people appreciate your working quality and quantity, and then the opportunity of promotion will arrive. On the other hand, you will need to build working relationships with people who support you or your subordinates. Because of your outstanding performance, people are watching you all the time. You need to pay attention on your behavior even after working hours. Your reputation will determine your career luck. If you have children, then you might spend more time with them or worry about something related to them. If you are married female with children, then you might not have enough time to take care your husband, children and your own career in the same time.

Money: There is no significant Money luck coming in 2010. The major income should come from your salary. Salary is not easy money. It requires lots of energy and brain power to overcome the pressure of getting it, so you need to plan your budget, watch your expenses, and then you will have the savings. Since there is no lottery or windfall luck, Dragon people shouldn't do any risky short-term investment or gambling in the year of Tiger.

Love: No Love sign appears in the Metal Tiger year. The emotion of Dragon people is unpredictable, therefore the love relationship of Dragon People in 2010 is unstable. If you are still single, then you will need some patience to wait for your true love. If you have a close friend, then you will need to control your temper to maintain the love relationship. If you are married, then you need to avoid argument in your marriage life. If you are single female, then you have better opportunity to meet the opposite sex. But females need to watch their actions and talk to avoid hurting man's dignity.

Health: There is an Unlucky Star appearing in health area. If your job requires traveling or driving, then you need to pay attention to safety to prevent from accidents when you are not at home. If you are female, then you need to make sure to visit your doctor for physical examination. If you have senior elders at home, you need to well take care them. If you have children at home, do not ignore them because of your busy career. If you don't feel well, then try not to visit sick people or attend a funeral.

Fortune: You have fair luck in 2010. The major event in the Metal Tiger year is related to your career and reputation. A stable career determines your money income. To build people relationships to enhance your reputation is the key to keep your job safe. Although there are signs of argument, law event, accident and hospitalization in 2010, you will be fine as long as you watch for your safety often. The health to your should be OK. You just have to be concerned about the health of the people closest to you. If you have children, make sure to spend time with them.

Rabbit people will be busy on the activities related to career in this year. That means there is career opportunity there. It might be required some degree of challenge to handle the pressure. Tiger year implies that your friends, coworkers, siblings or same generation people are always around you to guide you to solve the problems.

Money: Money luck is good to Rabbit people in 2010. Money is always connected with job and friends. The major income for Rabbit people this year is from stable salary, not from lottery or any windfall. If you own your business, then you need good people relationships to expand your business market.

Love: This is not a smooth year for men in love relationship. The love competition or misunderstanding will appear in 2010. You should focus on people emotion. You need to spend more time to read people's mind. Do not indulge yourself in luxury, wine and love. To ignore people's feeling will damage your love relationship. If you are a single female, then you have more chance to meet the opposite sex. If you have a boy friend, then you will have a closer relationship. But you still have to avoid unnecessary quarrels.

Health: Tiger brings a sick sign to Rabbit people. Your increase of social activities will make you exhausted. When you feel weak, then you need to take a rest to recover your energy as soon as possible. Try not to visit sick people or attend any funeral. The good news for Rabbit people is there is Sun Star appearing in their life. Any that is uncomfortable shouldn't develop into a big problem. If you have poor health since last year, then your health will have a good improvement in 2010. When you are driving or on the street, you need to focus on your safety to prevent from injury.

In general, Rabbit people need to focus on people connection in order to gain better career opportunity, higher financial return and closer love relationship. The health of Rabbit people should be fine in 2010. But they have to pay attention on the health of elders in their families.
