Many Bali Hotels and Villas are reporting strong booking activity over the Chinese New Year Holidays coming in late January 2009. While the official celebration of Chinese New Year will be marked on Monday, January 26, 2009, the celebration of the changing of Chinese Zodiac stretches for fifteen days.

The Year of the Ox

The Chinese New Year that is ushered in on January 26th will be the “Year of the Ox” – just one animal in a 12 animal Chinese Zodiac cycle used to designate the specific character one can expect from the year to come. Meanwhile, the year to which we bid farewell on January 26th will be the "Year of the Rat."

We'll let you decide whether or not to place any credence in these animal associations, based on the kind of year you had over the past twelve months and what kind of year your expecting ahead.

The Year of the Rat - The Rat, associated with the year now ending, is linked with aggression, wealth, charisma and orderliness. On the downside, the rodent can also bring death, war, black magic, plague and atrocities. The rat represents the first animal of the 12-animal Zodiac cycle so those born in that year tend to be first as leaders, trend setters and even generals in battle. In keeping with their station in life, these "rat" people are charismatic, hard working, determined, passionate, and single-minded.

Since rats are alert, cowardly, quick, sly and ambitious - your “Year of the Rat” might have contained any of these characteristics.

The Year of the Ox - The Ox, representing the year to come, bespeaks prosperity obtained through courage and hard work. Those born under this sign are leaders, dependable and often achieve great things in their lifetimes. They are also persistent and dogged in their determination – trudging on until their goal is eventually achieved. “Ox” people tend to be quiet, kind, compassionate, logical and realistic. Like an old ox, these people are intelligent and determined; and not amenable to being pushed around by anyone.

For the difficult financial year ahead, please remember that the Ox despises extravagance and always lives within his or her means. They do not like debt or credit cards, because they need a peaceful atmosphere without the worries of debt in order to do their best work.
