At midnight on January 29th, it becomes the Year of the Dog. According to Chinese astrologer Shelly Wu
, Tigers and Horses (me) will have a "great" year. Wu predicts a February packed with work (always good), and in March I'll benefit from a "triangle of compatibility" which will lead Horses to the "top of our power".
Ivory, on the other hand, has a "mixed" year ahead. She's an "artistic Goat" and, while January and February will be challenging, March brings radiance and new energies to bear. Well, since we're married, we'll share in the challenges and the rewards - as usual!
The 2006 Occult Authors Market, to be launched next month, will be an Observant Dog. "Steps taken this year will set the stage for the next two years" for Dogs, according to Wu. That makes sense, since I'll probably be looking for a publisher for either the 2007 or 2008 editions during the Summer.
