Thankfully, work is going to be momentous this year in terms of moving ahead and progressing. To get the attention of your superiors, stay calm and focused. You will also be surrounded by strong people who will guide you in your career quest.
Your health is not going to be the best this year. Do be careful and take precautions when needed as there is a likelihood of you getting into minor accidents. Fortunately, the Relief God Star can protect you from harm as long as you exercise diligently and avoid extreme activities.

Take caution and brace yourself for a rough ride in the wealth sector. Avoid risky and speculative investments this year as the outlook might not be in your favour. However, opportunities are always around if you keep your eyes and ears open.
Great news! The Lucky Stars are in your favour but how well you succeed depends heavily on how you utilise them so do think before you leap. You might also face certain minor challenges ahead, hence, practise patience and perseverance to clear these obstacles. Along the way, embrace help from generous people who will better guide you in your career quest.
It is important to look after your health this year as some minor threats are likely to emerge. Stay healthy by exercising and watching your consumption of fatty and oily food. Wear masks and take precautions particularly around viral epidemics that may occur.

OX (1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009)
Focus on yourself this year. Do some digging and find out what will bring you internal happiness this year. The pursuit of wealth and success may stress you out and bring morale down, so relax on that front. This is the year to try and get your life back in traction. Additionally, material pursuits are only temporary, so do re-evaluate your spending habits and look into saving a little more this year.
Don’t expect too much monetary gain this year. Balance your financial input and output, and check your approach towards spending on what is unnecessary – it would be wise to perhaps seek out financial planning advice. Take time to consider any decisions made as the presence of the Great Sha Star may lead you to make unwise, hasty and regretful choices.
There might be a slow decline in your progress at work and you might need to be patient in your efforts of righting the course of things. Show loyalty and steadfastness toward your superiors, heed their advice and this will be the stepping stone for future successes.
Oxes may be a little more vulnerable to viruses and illnesses, so caution must be exercised. Take time to look into your health – try to exercise more and improve your diet with better food choices. Be vigilant when driving or partaking in high-risk activities to avoid any potential mishaps.
The Essential Oil For Ox: Common Sense ™
A Young Living proprietary blend, Common Sense ™ (5 ml) was carefully and thoughtfully formulated to enhance rational decision-making abilities to increase wellness, purpose and abundance.

TIGER (1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010)
This year will be an auspicious year for you, with three auspicious stars residing in your sign giving you the edge you’ve been needing. Your time to shine at work has come and the year is looking bright for you to gain the recognition you seek. It’s also time for some sound investments, as the Wealth Stars will prove to be working in your favour.
Look out for valuable tips and seek out good advice when discussing and making potential investment choices before committing to them. Business owners should consider looking into investing in innovative technologies to amplify their business and stock assets. However, be tactful with your words as a little slip-up may leave you open to malicious gossips and rumours, which could affect your wealth outcome.
Exercise tolerance and patience as there might be some minor disputes stemming from misunderstandings with superiors and colleagues. Since everyone is different, respect the differing opinions on certain matters and issues, otherwise conflicts might arise. Thankfully, because of the presence of the Grand Duke Combinations Star, there will be people around you who can guide you out of sticky situations.
Your mind and body are in prime condition to tackle 2019 well. For prime performance, exercise, eat and rest well, as this will help you put your best foot forward in all areas of your life. Consider participating in team sports if company is what motivates you to exercise.

RABBIT (1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011)
Expect to have a fantastic year ahead, bunnies! If you’re aiming for career growth, this is the year you will see movement in the direction you want to go. With auspicious stars lined up, your career and wealth will bode well, with ample growth and successes on both fronts. The presence of noble people is likely to be the boost that you need — having the support of the right people will spur you to go further and see endeavours progress smoothly.
The Golden Lock Star and the Three Stages Star will be working in tandem to give you the edge that you need to enjoy better wealth prospects this year. With this monetary gain, it’s best for you to seek advice from financial experts on matters of investment before putting your money in potential opportunities.
There will be great developments in your career this year – you might even get a bigger office space. A good rapport with your superiors is on the cards, leading you to more chances to showcase your abilities at work. Moreover, opportunities are in abundance, so you need to be brave in capitalising the chances that present themselves to you to make a shift.
Exercise caution and think through thoroughly before partaking in risky activities that may be to your detriment as you are more prone to injuries and illness this year. Also, avoid consuming excess oil and fat in your diet as issues might arise in regards to your digestive track. Boost your overall well-being by making better diet choices and exercising sufficiently.
The Essential Oil For Rabbit: DiGize ™
With 2019 appearing to be a fantastic year for those born in the year of Rabbit, good meals are sure to come. However, remember to be nice to your gut by making sure you don’t overeat. In such situations, always keep a bottle of DiGize ™ (15 ml) handy. Combining tarragon, ginger, peppermint, juniper, lemongrass, anise, and patchouli oils, DiGize ™ can help to relieve abdomen discomfort topically after heavy meals.
DRAGON (1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012)
The stars will be bringing positive influences into areas of your relationship that may have been lacking or stagnant, and there will also be an increase in your social activity; you will receive invitations to weddings and parties which will further your chances of meeting new people for love, life and business. However, health-wise, you will need to be more mindful and work on maintaining an active lifestyle.
Dragons symbolise wealth and fortune, so it’s no surprise that this year will be a good year financially. Furthermore, 2019 itself is a good financial year. However, look out for gossips and rumours that may come your way – these rumours may have a direct or indirect impact on your finances. Also, keep a close eye on your belongings as you may be susceptible to pickpockets and thieves, which would cause you to lose substantial amounts of money.
You will likely see growth in some areas and an ease-up on work stress. Relationships with your superiors will see better ascension, prompting better promotion opportunities. Don’t push yourself too hard with work commitments and fall sick because of stress; remember to keep a good work-life balance!
The year might leave you a little open to viruses and illnesses, which will disrupt your life cycle if preventive measures are not taken. A greater effort needs to be made on health matters – exercise and strive to live a better lifestyle, which will help improve other areas of your life as well. Follow healthy nutritional and dietary practices – after all, you are what you eat.
The Essential Oil For Dragon: Thieves ®
It appears to be a good year for Dragons, but make it even better by keeping your space smelling clean and fresh with the trusty power of Thieves ® (15 ml). Featuring the powerful essential oils lemon, clove, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary, Thieves ® imparts a spicy, welcoming aroma everywhere it’s used and is known to keep you on guard to achieve optimal well-being.
SNAKE (1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013)
This year might not be stellar for Snakes, both professionally and personally. Maintaining the right mindset and garnering the strength to persevere is the key to triumphing over challenging times. You may have ideas coming from all sides of your work and passions, but unfortunately, they lead you nowhere. In fact, your plans may go south from what you envisioned. Throughout the year, you might also be tempted to spend money aimlessly, maybe in investing in risky projects. Be aware of that and exercise wisdom and put aside some income and money to spend on your family and friends as they will certainly be your comfort this year.
There is a possibility that you might incur monetary losses due to failed investments and overspending. Throw caution to the wind and limit your new investments this year. It’s also not a good year for gambling opportunities as your financial resources are depleting. Keep it for better times. Thankfully, making a symbolic gesture of purchasing something of value can cushion your financial losses.
Your work-life balance might be tipped off, but exercise patience and be calm as these work issues are not going to last very long. Once your work life is stabilised, start making grander plans for the year ahead and you’ll slowly but surely get to execute them – your fortune lies within the industry you are based at, so persevere.
There are no major concerns in terms of health this year – though there may be some issues with minor colds and flu. Employ better driving etiquette to avoid possible accidents on the road and be cautious with sharp and hot objects – try to focus especially when you are cooking in the kitchen.
The Essential Oil For Snake: Peace & Calming ™

HORSE (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014)
Rejoice Horses! 2019 is looking up for you. It is expected to be bountiful and exciting, with positive energies likely to surround you in areas of relationship, wealth and career. Keep an eye out for lucrative investments in property or shares as it could be a golden opportunity for you to accumulate wealth. However, don’t get too excited and give in to impulsive decisions that might result in monetary loss. Also, be wary of the possibility of accidents – prepare adequately before you travel and perhaps refrain from activities with high physical intensity.
Be cautious of potential extravagant spending or investments that could result in monetary loss. You wouldn’t want to lose the money that you’re going to gain in 2019. Additionally, since wealth is in your favour this year, keeping close tabs on your cash flow and utilising the money wisely is pertinent.
Expect great developments in your career this year happening closer to the post autumn season. This is the time to buck up and put your best foot forward and present yourself for that promotion you have had your eye on. Time your execution of plans well as this will lead the way to a better, more organised outcome.
Thankfully, your health will not be a concern for you this year, though those who are more senior in age should pay closer attention to their diet and their exercise plan. Avoid overindulging in late night snacks and food as this might help prevent digestive problems or insomnia.

GOAT (1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015)
Expect to be more relaxed in the new year – blessings will come in the form of auspicious stars gracing the year.

There will be good opportunities for you to shine at work and showcase your abilities and talents to your superiors.
You should handle your workplace relationships delicately, particularly with colleagues. Think before you act, as the Sky Warrior Star will influence much of your communication with others and some small miscommunication may put a damper on an otherwise great career prospect.

It will be in your favour to make rational choices in any potential investment while avoiding short term opportunities.
You have favourable wealth luck this year and how well you garner wealth would greatly depend on your resourcefulness.

You will be surrounded by people willing to help you when needed and there will be possible opportunities for promotion and career advancements, so keep your mind sharp and ready for any potential appraisals and interviews. There might be office gossip about you so keep a low profile at work and avoid miscommunication.
