Chinese New Year--- 2006 the Year of the Fire Dog

And guess what MY Chinese sign is? *Glimmer*

By the way, if you were born before the lunar new year on the date of your birth, you may be the sign before the one that you see on the Chinese place mats in restaurants.

Example: I was born in January, so I am not the boar as most things will list for the year 1971. I was born within the previous lunar year, which makes me the dog. (Clear as mud, huh?)

Quote from a tarot site:

Finally, a year to regroup! In 2006, wrongs will be righted, the underdog will become an "overdog". Watch and see. From January 29, 2006 until February 17, 2007 the disquiet, just, fair, loyal, suspicious, critical and sometimes pessimistic RED FIRE DOG will reign supreme, creating an overall positive influence.

Fire Dogs are a cindery mix of moody combustion and passionate, benevolent concern for their fellow man. Ya don't say? LOL.

Love and Lust
This year, we will all fall in and out of impassioned love at least once...and many people–more than in a long time–will get married, settle down and make a normal life for themselves and their offspring. I'm having an anxiety attack).

But beware, although dogs are oddly loyal in most areas of life, dogs are rarely faithful in the matters of sex, and this year may be proof positive. Dogs don't prevaricate often if they can help it. But where sex is concerned, they fib prolifically. uuuhhh...'specially if I am falling in and out of impassioned love!


We will embrace new commitments and discover new routes to realize our dreams. It'll be up to each of us ‒ the members of the Red Fire Dog's flock (as we all are in the cycle of the Dog) ‒ to manifest our deepest desires.

We shall see!

Ohhhh...and the picture is an idiogram ...

Winter gone

Mountain Clear

Water Sparkles...

Isn't that lovely?

May this year starting with the lunar cycle bring great and wonderous things to those of Heart.

With sincere apologies to the site that posted this information. As we know, I am not able to give credit to the tarot site.


I'm glad so many of you responded to this.

I've compiled (okay, dammit...plagarized) Chinese zodiac characteristics from the net.
Let me know if you think it's accurate.

RATS are born in 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984.

You are imaginative, charming, and truly generous to the person you love. However, you have a tendency to be quick-tempered and overly critical. You are also inclined to be somewhat of an opportunist. Born under this sign, you should be happy in sales or as a writer, critic, or publicist.

Of Course, I still love ya, Sassy. LMAO![/green]

1949, 1961, 1973
BUFFALO: A born leader, you inspire confidence from all around you. You are conservative methodical, and good with your hands. Guard against being chauvinistic and always demanding your own way. The Buffalo would be successful as a skilled surgeon, general, or hairdresser.

What the HELL?...How do you go from general or surgeon to HAIRDRESSER???

1950, 1962, 1974,
You are sensitive, emotional, and capable of great love. However, you have a tendency to get carried away and be stubborn about what you think is right; often seen as a "Hothead" or rebel. Your sign shows you would be excellent as a boss, explorer, race car driver, or matador.

1951, 1963, 1975

You are the kind of person, that people like to be around... affectionate, obliging, always pleasant. You have a tendency, though, to get too sentimental and seem superficial. Being cautious and conservative, you are successful in business but would also make a good lawyer, diplomat, or actor.

1940, 1952, 1964

Full of vitality and enthusiasm, the Dragon is a popular individual even with the reputation of being foolhardy and a "big mouth" at times. You are intelligent, gifted, and a perfectionist but these qualities make you unduly demanding on others. You would be well-suited to be an artist, priest, or politician.

1941, 1953, 1965, 1977
Rich in wisdom and charm, you are romantic and deep thinking and your intuition guides you strongly. Avoid procrastination and your stingy attitude towards money. Keep your sense of humor about life. The Snake would be most content as a teacher, philosopher, writer, psychiatrist, and fortune teller.


1942, 1954,1966, 1978 Your capacity for hard work is amazing. Your are your own person-very independent. While intelligent and friendly, you have a strong streak of selfishness and sharp cunning and should guard against being egotistical. Your sign suggests success as an adventurer, scientist, poet, or politician.

1955, 1967, 1979

Except for the knack of always getting off on the wrong foot with people, the Goat can be charming company. Your are elegant and artistic but the first to complain about things. Put aside your pessimism and worry and try to be less dependent on material comforts. You would be best as an actor, gardener, or beachcomber.

1956, 1968, 1980

You are very intelligent and possess a very clever wit. Because of your extraordinary nature and magnetic personality, you are always well-liked. The Monkey, however, must guard against being an opportunist and distrustful of other people. Your sign promises success in any field you try.

1957, 1969, 1981

The Rooster is a hard worker; shrewd and definite in decision making often speaking his mind. Because of this, you tend to seem boastful to others. You are a dreamer, flashy dresser, and extravagant to an extreme. Born under this sign you should be happy as a restaurant owner, publicist, soldier or world traveler.

1946, 1958, 1970, 1982

The Dog will never let you down. Born under this sign you are honest, and faithful to those you love. You are plagued by constant worry, a sharp tongue, and a tendency to be a fault finder, however. You would make an excellent businessman, activist, teacher, or secret agent.

1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995

You are a splendid companion, an intellectual with a very strong need to set difficult goals and carry them out. You are sincere, tolerant, and honest but by expecting the same from others, you are incredibly naive. Your quest for material goods could be your downfall. The Pig would be best in the arts as an entertainer, or possible a lawyer.

Hi Dysgyzed, People born in the Year of the Rat are noted for their charm and attraction for the opposite sex. They work hard to achieve their goals, acquire possessions, and are likely to be perfectionists. They are basically thrifty with money. Rat people are easily angered and love to gossip. Their ambitions are big, and they are usually very successful. They are most compatible with people born in the years of the Dragon, Monkey, and Ox.... these are my words, I copied this from the internet but it answered you question. {=}

1947 Dys, what does that make me? Rat I think. Ah well, I've been called worse, especially by my first wife. As a matter of fact, I've been called a dog before too. Arf fuckin' arf. Damn, guess I gotta go back to the buffett and get a place mat so I know these things. I like the "glimmer" thing, it suits you. BTW, there's a cd out called "Old Dogs", by Jerry Reed, Bobby Bare, Mel Tillis, and Waylon Jennings. Get it, It's a hoot! Joe

Ok, now I'm a pig. My first wife couldn't make up her mind either, LOL. Acutally quite an accurate description (the traits I mean). I'm a little overweight (ok, more than a little), but I don't look or act like a pig. How about a boar, LOL. Sounds a little better.

Aww sassy momma that's all so true about me. I already knew I'm quick tempered since I'm a taurus I like how it says "You are imaginative, charming, and truly generous to the person you love."
