One of China's top feng shui masters reads your Chinese zodiac Sign for 2011
The Chinese zodiac is represented by 12 animal signs each representing a distinctive set of characteristics and personalities. The Chinese horoscope always starts with the Rat and goes through a 12-year cycle ending with the Pig.
Year of the Rat - 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
Although the rat may not be an adorable animal, people under this sign are smart and successful.
But this year seems not a very smooth year, especially in February, May and August.
You might find it difficult to make a lot of progress in your career, as you may encounter many difficulties posed by colleagues whom you are often at odds with. Avoid confrontation if you can. It's also not a good time for career moves.
You also may be prone to illness, especially with your digestive system. Be faithful to your exercise program and don't neglect your regular checkup.
Regarding money, you need to be careful with financial matters this year and do not let yourself become distracted. Self-control is your best way to gain wealth.
But don't feel frustrated, there are still plenty of opportunities.
Year of the Ox - 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009
People born in this year are honest, laborious, patient, obstinate, and sometimes poor at communication.
An Ox may hit a few obstacles in 2011. You will face pressures from work and family so make sure you maintain good relationships with colleagues and clients. You might need to work on being less stubborn and borrow some gentleness from the Rabbit. You might even change your career.
You are not so lucky in making money so avoid any get-rich-quick schemes and exercise caution when dealing with financial matters.
Harmony and order will be important for you this year.
Year of the Tiger - 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010

The fortunes of tiger people will rebound this year. You might get unexpected help at work and make a great leap forward in career. Some long-standing difficult problems can be solved this year. But when you are ambitiously planning your career, be careful to cope with sudden changes.
You may have good financial fortunes this year if you spend wisely.
If you want to a great success or make a breakthrough, you will have to work extra hard as well as considering how to make your life a bit more relaxing.
Year of the Rabbit - 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011
Rabbit people are gentle, sensitive, modest, merciful, compassionate, selfish and judgmental.
This year Rabbits may offend Taisui, the power that controls the zodiac, so your luck may fluctuate.
There maybe setbacks at work and business may not do very well. But if you work harder you could get promoted.
You might encounter huge losses and face the possibility of using up all your savings.
Accidents and injuries may occur so avoid high-risk sports.
Instead of getting stressed, try to stay calm and make careful preparations before taking actions.
