Should I be Nervous?

Man!!! Grandy just can't get a break!!!

2009 is really starting out with promise and although I've been really busy with work, I'm really working make some serious progress in my career and my personal life.

I can't tell you what those things are just yet...but I assure you I am working on some good things.

So, when I went over to check in on LadyJava at one of her many sites, and I stumbled across this little Chinese New Year horoscope she had, I thought I just had to check it out. I'm so excited about the year I'm going to have, I was hoping I would find something to confirm my positive outlook.

Here is what I found instead...

You’re not as lucky as last year. There are several unlucky stars influencing the Rat. However, there are still eight favourable months ahead. Your luck in career and wealth is good, but not in love and health.


You have a lucky star this year. Your boss will appreciate your talents and you will get the promotion you’ve been eyeing. But it won’t happen if you don’t fight for it. For merchants, bankers and sales people, you will make more than sufficient money.

Love life:

Rats are not lucky in love this year. For married people, you’ll have frequent quarrels with your spouse. For those in love, it’s not a good time to push the existing relationship to the next level. Your love interest could have a change of heart. For singles, set aside some time for social life and you might find a new love interest, but do not expect things to develop rapidly.


You’re vulnerable to accidents and diseases. Too much pressure and lack of sleep might lead to poor health. Go for an annual medical check-up.

Take note:

Remember the old Chinese saying: Having good health is good luck.


Now I'm depressed. Where's my wine? Are we sure I didn't stumble into the 2007 or 2008 Chinese New Year horoscope?

Now I'm having dejavu.

There is no way EVERYONE born the same year as you is going to have that kind of luck.

I really think they took the year of the Horse horoscope from last year and slapped on Rat this year, anyway! ;P

Be cool.
It's just some prediction.
You have your own way to make it as you wish.

Normally I would say, "tell me something I don't already know" .. but this year? I would say Chinese horoscope is off this go round. You're safe. No horrible diseases, either.

Don't let it get you down. Personally, I find it hard to believe that it's all true, it's a prediction, not fact based.

oppssiee... hey as I've said before.. just believe in the good bits.. eg:

Your luck in career and wealth is good.
You have a lucky star this year. Your boss will appreciate your talents and you will get the promotion you’ve been eyeing.

DITTO SUCK!!! I, too, am a Rat and this does not look good.

Career: I don't have a flippin' boss to impress so pooey on that one.

Love: Ummm, already quarrel-packed to the gills. Really? More quarreling? I can't freakin' wait! Wahoo!

Health: Well, shit. I don't get much sleep already. And, now they tell me I'll be diseased this year? Yeh, awesome there, too.

Grandy, what are us Rats to do? Let's share our cheese and muddle through 2009 as best we can.

Wait Grandy, maybe you were "supposed" to be born another year and thus, all this predictions are for last year. And then maybe global warming slowed down the revolutions of the moon, which caused the stars to align in the past and appear to be the future when in reality it is celestial time travel.

Or something.

Grandy said...

Suzanne~ Maybe that's it.

Itisrajah~ Yeah!! You're right!

phd~ Whew...it's now the communicable diseases I worry about. ;)

Jibber jabber~ Yeah, but dang...it didn't look good at all.

Grandy said...

LJ~ Only annual check up? You're right..focus on the good stuff. ;)

OTC~ I'll bring the wine to go with the cheese.

Vixen~ Or something like that. :)

OMG - I am a rat...well, that sucks.

Grandy said...

NJDecorator~ Fear not! All these people say we can ignore the sucky stuff. ;)
