Abundance is simply a matter of perception. It’s time to be more proactive: Put in the effort and you would begin to notice opportunities in every aspect of your life. Some might even say that abundance is your birthright, but you may have been too busy to notice.
While there’s no denying that your efforts can, and will yield monetary rewards, you’d need to be extra cautious of unwittingly overspending this year. Practise self-restraint, plan your finances well and stick to it to a tee to avoid debt in the year ahead.
It looks to be relatively uneventful in the love department. If you’re in a committed relationship, keep the fires of your romance ablaze by whisking your partner off on a relaxing getaway. This will save your relationship from complacency and boredom. If you’re single and looking, widen your social circle to increase your chances of finding the right partner. Also, there’s no need to rush – whirlwind romances aren’t in the cards for you this year, so take things slow.
Pay extra attention to your physical and emotional well-being. Eat right, sleep well. If you don’t take care of your lifestyle habits, you could have a higher chance of encountering urinary problems. Make sure you go for medical check-ups when necessary.
1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009
With the rise of three auspicious stars, worry will be succeeded with optimism, and hope will replace fear. Although inauspicious stars look to potentially derail you from your goals, a positive and unwavering mind will help keep you optimistic and focused.
There will be many opportunities to generate wealth through various channels – even beyond your day job. While you may enjoy prosperity this year, it’s important to be mindful about getting enough rest to keep burnout and stress at bay.
If you’re single, get ready to mingle as potential partners are definitely within your social circles. Now is not the time to play coy, be earnest and sincere about your feelings – without being overbearing – and your search for love may well come to an end.
In 2020, you would remain healthy and resilient to serious illnesses. A good diet and fitness routine would strengthen your body against common health ailments, too.
1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010
Good luck awaits you this year in the form of travel and money-making opportunities. While you should always have an attitude of gratitude when favourable situations come your way, you should also embrace them wholeheartedly as they may not happen twice.
If you are willing to travel, wealth prospects are aplenty. However, your finances are not looking good this year. Practise self-restraint and conquer the urge to splurge. Be prudent and keep close tabs on cash outflow to minimise financial loss.
Due to a weak Peach Blossom Luck in 2020, you should maintain a positive mind and an upbeat personality to hold out against any side effects of this poor love luck. Nevertheless, potential partners would still be charmed by the energy you bring, so stay cheery and your love life could still be merry.
While you have a bold and adventurous streak, you should find ways to channel that gutsy trait in ways that don’t involve any critical risk to your physical and mental well-being. Stick to an effective health routine to help you stay fit enough to take on the ample opportunities coming your way.
1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011
For better or worse, your forecast in 2020 is all about relationships. Almost all of the annual stars, both auspicious and inauspicious, look to influence your relationships in some way. Although the current outlook appears to be less optimistic than what happened last year, your actions and decisions will determine the way this year plays out.
So long as you avoid any high-risk investments, you will be hopping towards abundance throughout the year. Remain diligent and assume an uncompromising work ethic – this will boost your already-positive wealth luck and raise your chances for a well-deserved raise. Real estate investment should also be on your radar this year, though it’s still best to be conservative and select only low-risk investments.
Thanks to your positive Peach Blossom luck, singles should be proactive in the game of love instead of waiting for the other party to make the first move. On the other hand, if you’re in a committed relationship, you could consider getting married – thanks to the presence of auspicious stars.
A change of lifestyle and daily habits could be essential to bolster your physical and mental well-being. Prevention is better than cure – stick to this motto firmly by committing to a stricter fitness routine in 2020.
1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012
This year shall be a journey like no other. The way you respond to a situation and the meaning you give to every moment greatly matters as these reactions would determine how your year unfolds. There will be challenging times, but no matter how tough any situation gets, you will still have the ability to turn the tides in your favour.
It would be wise to put your faith in those who are far more accomplished and experienced than you are in terms of financial management. You should be looking at fixed deposit investments as well as saving plans – expert advice will definitely come in handy when you plan your finance strategies.
Those in complicated relationships will experience a more progressive love life. Wedding bells are in the air if either party is interested to tie the knot. While single people aren’t quite as fortunate in the love department, mustering the courage to convey their affections towards the one they love may lead to surprising, but favourable, outcomes.
This year, you will be more prone to physical injuries. So, refrain from any extreme physical activity, and be mindful not to overexert yourself. Regular exercise is still encouraged. Meanwhile, you should pay extra attention to potential health issues related to the waist and stomach area.
1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013
This year presents many opportunities for you to find the silver lining in every situation. Although good luck will come to you in the form of support and new relationships, the way you approach every situation will determine its final outcome. Life can be filled with so much drama due to the presence of inauspicious stars, but if you look at life in a more positive manner, you could turn things around.
Unlike last year, there will be opportunities for you to accumulate wealth, and save and spend money, and better yet, in a more relaxed approach. Nonetheless, toughen up the security around your assets, if possible, to prevent any possible loss in wealth due to theft.
Give yourself room to breathe and collect your thoughts before you let your emotions escalate an argument. You may get angry more easily this year, but a heart of appreciation will go a long way towards keeping the peace between you and your loved one, or potential partner.
Cast away your frivolous attitude towards your health this year. Don’t underestimate minor health issues and always treat them before they worsen. You should also pay more attention to your diet. If you are not mindful enough, you could develop urinary issues or foot-related problems.
1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014
Make it your goal to always be patient, kind and appreciative because everything else in your life will fall into place once you get into that mindset. In other words, this attitude would allow you to experience much more comfortable scenarios even when negativity strikes due the presence of inauspicious stars.
Wealth opportunities will come your way if you put in the necessary work and effort. Meticulous planning and a deeper sense of mindfulness will save you from financial heartache. Be careful when signing any contracts or agreements, for instance, to avoid losing money due to carelessness.
If you’re already in a committed relationship, remember that the trials you two will go through this year only serve to make your romance stronger. Let every argument or setback teach you how to handle your relationship with greater appreciation and maturity. If you’re single, explore new social circles to make up for the lack of compatible suitors in the current ones.
Stress may be a dominant issue for you if you allow work issues to cascade into your personal life. Counter stress with ample rest, proper sleep, and a healthy intake of nutrients through a good diet and essential vitamins. Take a sabbatical every now and then as that can do wonders for your physical and mental well-being.
1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015
There looks to be a strong connection between you and the infinity symbol. This means that issues tend to subside and truths are revealed, thanks to the ability of the five lucky stars to tune you into this year’s miracles and wonders. The year looks to move smoothly, but if life takes a detour, it would be best to remain positive.
Reduce the chances of minor financial planning with careful planning. Aside from this, your wealth prospects look very positive. However, your own negativity may blind you from noticing how fortunate you truly are. Adjust your mindset, be positive and you will be rewarded.
It’s time for confessions and courtships for the love-struck. Acts of love will make more impact this year, so you should focus on planning romantic gestures for your significant other or love interest.
Be extra careful of what you put in your mouth, especially if you are past your prime. You might want to consider more home-cooked meals instead of eating out regularly as this would give you better control of nutrient intake and hygiene.
1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016
2020 is shaping up to be the year that would truly test your resilience in life. This is a great year to learn and grow through the many challenges that may come your way. When faced with obstacles and challenges, don’t just focus on the bad and take your blessings for granted.
Your boost in wealth will rely a lot on the help from others this year. This could come in the form of expert advice on investments or strengthening your financial security. Don’t take their help for granted though – be sure to pay it forward by helping the less fortunate and the universe will repay your kindness.
It’s crucial to deepen your bond with your partner or potential romantic interest. Your partner should also be your best friend, so make the effort to improve your relationship on that level as opposed to focusing on romantic or sexual gestures.
In 2020, you would likely face no major illness or health concerns. However, it is still recommended that you resist and consume less of particularly tasty, yet extremely unhealthy and oily foods. While stress could also be an issue this year, you can easily alleviate this by making exercise and meditation a big part of your lifestyle.
1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017
While most are in search of the light that represents solutions, happiness and fulfilments, they often overlook the most important part of all, and that is to become a light for others. You can look forward to a smooth year in 2020 and that would make helping others easier for you, too.
It’s time to diversify your options when it comes to building wealth. Don’t just stick to what you know. Seek professional help and find out other ways to improve your finances.
Love is in the air! There’s positive love luck for those who are single this year. Note that Mr or Ms Right won’t turn up by chance so plan away! As long as you are keen on a committed relationship, the chances of your potential bae reciprocating will be astronomic.
You may be surprised at how much a difference it makes when you maintain a healthy diet. Embrace nature – a little more than usual – to help improve your mental and emotional health, fostering contentment, resilience and self-awareness.
1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018
Nothing can ever be achieved without some trials and tribulations. Always remain positive no matter the situation you’re in. When you radiate positivity, the quality of your thoughts and feelings improve, and will naturally lean on the plus side. You can’t control what happens to you in life, relationships, money matters or otherwise, so embrace adversity and dig in even further to drive a positive outcome.
A solid financial backup plan will be your line of defence against the likelihood of what-seems-to-be constant monetary loss. Don’t be too quick to invest as a means to counter this lacklustre period. Avoid high-risk investments at all costs and focus simply on saving money.
Love-struck and wedded couples may be more likely to fall sick, and it’s a good time for them to show more affection, care and consideration towards one another. You may tend to misunderstand your partner’s words and intentions, so it would be prudent to be more aware of their body language.
If your health deteriorates, you’d be relieved to know that the best medical assistance is at arm’s length. But, don’t let it come to that; take care of your well-being. Minor physical injuries are also more likely to happen this year, so avoid extreme sports and activities – especially if you do not have a safety plan when things go south.
1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019
It looks to be a great year ahead in terms of your wealth forecast. Learning and knowledge will boost your monetary gain, particularly through information gathered from carefully researched investments. There are many ways of looking at your life this year. It all comes down to your state of mind and the actions you choose to take for every situation.
You will see a positive shift in your wealth luck this year as more doors open for better part-time jobs and alternative sources of side income. While none of these opportunities is particularly spectacular, effort on your part to harness these changes will be enough to afford you a peace of mind.
Great news for singles: you won’t be alone much longer if you’ve been soulmate-searching. That said, it’s best if you don’t act on impulse. Take your time to get to know your love interest on a deeper level before committing yourself. Time is on your side.
Don’t use your busy schedule as an excuse to avoid adding healthy habits to your lifestyle. There are plenty of quick, cost-effective ways to care for your overall health, without compromising on your health goals. Find out what works and stick to it.
