This Month... Focus On Career

Many times, our workplace is like our second home as we spend most of our waking hours at the office.

Many times, our workplace is like our second home as we spend most of our waking hours at the office. Whether you are working for a company, self-employed or a business owner, plan ahead and make the most of the positive energies present around you.

RAT (2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960, 1948, 1936, 1924)
There’s some luck in the career and finance department in store for you. However, it would be best if you don’t just rely on your good energy to succeed. You will need to be more proactive to make the most of the opportunities available to you.

OX (2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, 1949, 1937, 1926)

If you’ve been consistently and tirelessly working these past few months, this is the month where you would most likely see positive results unfolding. As long as you persist in your efforts, your personal plans and goals will readily come to fruition.
My Reading Room

TIGER (2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950, 1938, 1927)

This is a good time to practice and exercise tolerance and even more so in the office. There are higher chances of clashing with your colleagues, so make an effort to maintain a low profile to reduce the likelihood of this happening.
My Reading Room

RABBIT (2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951, 1939, 1927)

Yes, your workload may be overwhelming this month. However, it is vital that you persist in the face of obstacles and challenges. You will find yourself rewarded for your hard work if you consistently strive towards your goals.
My Reading Room

DRAGON (2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952, 1940, 1928)

There is a chance that unpleasant events could take place this month, so be mentally prepared for potential setbacks at the workplace. Although these challenges may hinder your long-term goals, stay positive and make an effort to overcome these obstacles.
My Reading Room

SNAKE (2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965, 1953, 1941, 1929)

You will see significant progress in terms of your career this month. However, don’t overexert yourself and neglect your health in the process. Maintain a balance between both work and play for a promising month ahead.
My Reading Room

HORSE (2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954, 1942, 1930)

Be careful of your surroundings this month, especially if your job requires some form of physical activity. You might be more accident-prone than usual, so take the necessary safety precautions before taking on any task that would require physical exertion.
My Reading Room

GOAT (2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967, 1955, 1943, 1931)

You will see a sudden spike in the amount of work that requires your attention. If a work associate approaches you to be their guarantor for their business, it’s best to refrain from doing so. Think twice before helping anyone in the professional environment too.
My Reading Room

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

If you have had planned any business ventures or projects, May is the month to kick things off. Things will also be smooth-sailing for you at work, as your colleagues and bosses may offer help that would contribute to your success. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
My Reading Room

ROOSTER (2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969, 1957, 1945, 1933)

This may prove to be a trying month. Learn to look at everything from a different perspective to turn things around. Having a positive outlook would allow you to see the good in any situation you’re in.
My Reading Room

DOG (2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1958, 1946, 1934)

There’s a good chance that much sought-after job promotion is on the horizon. Remember to adopt an attitude of gratitude if it comes along. You should focus on the successes you have achieved to maintain a positive state of mind.
My Reading Room

PIG (2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959, 1947, 1935)

As your workload significantly increases, it’s essential to maintain a positive frame of mind at all times to manage your mental and emotional state. Ensure that you keep your temper in check to minimise arguments and conflicts with others.
