ACCORDING to the Chinese calendar, 2005 is the Green Wooden Chicken Year.
The Chinese base their beliefs in astrology and a Fortune-Telling Calendar to predict their fate in 2005.
The Chinese calendar uses the Stem-Branch system to count the days, months and years. There are 10 stems, which have a double fate (Yin-Yang) and five elements (metal, water, wood, fire and earth).
Rat, cow and monkey
Branches are 12 and use animal names; rat, cow, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, chicken, dog and pig.
Stem and Branch are used together to form a cycle of 60 counting systems, which begin with Wooden Rat and end with Water Pig.
The year 2005 is the 22nd of the Stem-Branch in the system. Its element is Wood and the branch, Chicken. These match with green in the Fortune-Telling system to make 2005 a Green Wooden Chicken year.
2004 was a Green Monkey year. Monkey is in the Metal group making 2004 a Metal year. Chicken is also in the Metal group making 2005 a Metal year too.
This means 2005 is the continuation of previous Metal cycle. That is why you should have about the same luck in 2005 as in 2004.
Failing love life
If your love was failing, continue with it in 2005 but change the options because the previous ones were not blessed by the green metal cycle.
According to the five element relationship, there is a conflict between wood and metal. So many lovers should prepare for disputes and arguments in 2005.
Actually, most of the conflicts from the 2004 events will continue to occur in 2005. Water could have diminished the conflict between wood and metal, but there is no water in 2005. So the disagreement between wood and metal will last longer and stronger. So, solutions to love problems will not be a matter of course. They will require a lot more effort.
No easy solutions
Basically, your luck will be about the same as 2004.
Wood and metal in 2005 are opposite elements. Expect good and bad luck. If wood represents sex, your sex luck in 2005 is â€œsex comes, then sex goesâ€.
If metal represents your sex, expect â€œsex goes, then sex comesâ€.
If you are male and your lucky element is metal, you should have better luck than others and good marriage luck in 2005, especially if your partner is female wood.
