God & Man

Rat: 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960

You’ll find yourself in a relationship very quickly.

You’re the relationship type but in the past your greatest struggle were getting relationships to last and keeping your interest. But as the New Year begins you’ll find yourself falling fast and hard for someone who is right there with you.

Ox: 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961

You’re going to find someone you like as much as your job.

The ox has always been one who puts their job before everything else. So when you meet someone who teaches you to have a little more fun in your life at first you’re going to reject them but they are going to be the one who teaches you it’s important to succeed but what’s even more important is who you get to share it with.

Tiger: 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962

You’re going to turn into a hopeless romantic.

The tiger runs from any bit of romance and feelings. They like being alone. They focus on themselves. But this will be your year you meet your match. This person is going to be so much like you one of you is bound to fold. And it’s going to be you. Next thing you know these over the top gestures that used to make you gage is suddenly your life and you don’t know how you even became this person.

Rabbit: 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963

You’ll be alone but you’ll like it.

The rabbit is one of the most likable signs. They find themselves catching the interest of a lot of different people. But it’s important to take a step back and realize when you need to be alone. Getting lost in relationships you forget who you are and what life is like without someone attached to it. It’s going to be vital to find that again.

Dragon: 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964

The way you do relationships is playing for keeps.

In the new year, you’re going to spend a lot of time with the wrong people who don’t do it for you. You’re going to grow frustrated and tired and want to write off dating altogether. Then someone is going to come along and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone before that. Have patience.

Snake: 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965

You claim you hate to love and relationships but you secretly want it.

Your reputation is one where you come across not caring or feeling anything deeply. You use that as a defense mechanism because you don’t want anyone too close. At the same time though you want to find someone who cares enough to put in the effort and break through your walls. You swear you hate love and you’ll never commit but you just want to find someone who is worthy of committing to. Someone who doesn’t try to change you. And it’s going to be that person who makes you change your ways because they saw who you were when everyone believed who you were pretending to be.

Horse: 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966

Your relationship will be on it’s way to the next step.

You’ve been at a weird place where you want to move to the next step but you don’t want to pressure your partner or scare them away asking. They know what you want they are just waiting for the right time. Be ready for it in 2018.

Goat: 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967

Your relationship is on the way out.

It’s hard to admit when something isn’t good anymore or you each have changed but that’s exactly what has happened. Even though old love lingers and neither of you wants to let go, sometimes it hurts more holding onto what’s not there anymore.

Monkey: 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968

You’re finally going to heal.

You’ve held onto a lot of relationships in the past not ready to really let them go and set yourself free from them. But you deserve to be happy and that’s exactly what’s going to happen this year. Where you used to cling to pain because it was so familiar you find it weird just being happy you forgot what that was like.

Rooster: 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969

You are going to embrace the fuck out of being newly single.

You’re going to have the time of your life in 2018 and there isn’t going to be a single feeling attached to it.

Dog: 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970

You are going to find someone who matches your loyalty.

Of all the signs dogs are the most loyal. And the greatest issue you’ve had in the past is engaging in these relationships that people weren’t meeting you halfway. You’re going to meet someone soon who makes you realize you didn’t have to try so hard.

Pig: 2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971

An old love is going to come back into your life.

Someone who has always been in your heart but you ended on uncomfortable terms you still think about will come back into your life and it’s going to feel like nothing has changed between you. You’re going to realize lost love sometimes does come back and the second time around it won’t hurt you. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
