2007, the Year of the Pig is with its Fire Element and representative colour red. Thus it is the 'Ding Hai' Year: the Year of the Red Fire Pig or Boar.
2007 is also the 4th year in the new Feng Shui Land Luck Cyclic Period 8. The year symbolises the element Fire sitting over Water. Both these elements are direct opposites and with their clashing relationship, cannot co-exist. This clash of elements will mean frequent international conflicts and serious internal struggles. Civil unrest will lead to uprisings, and civil war will break out in several countries, leading to overthrow of governments. The Female Fire will be quite devastating. Many states will be preoccupied with border disputes, provincial clashes, cross country terrorism and disintegration of existing territories.
The year 2007 is a year of countless gossips and endless arguments. From the general public to the topmost leaders, there will be disputes everywhere, at all levels. People will have verbal duels and fights and nature will have it's own conflicts.
Rumours will haunt the governments, leading to major differences within. Political parties will be greatly polarised.
There will be conflicts within the doors also, meaning disruption in family harmony and marital relationships. Unlike last year, this year will see many separations, even though this is also a good year for marriage and child bearing. There will be many cases of young men marrying older women.
People will have their privacy intruded, confidential information stolen, sold and exposed to the public glare. If you have anything to hide, the chances are that it will be found out this year.
Self-confidence shaken, many will entertain suicidal thoughts. On the positive side, shady characters, sinners and wanted terrorists will be caught red handed. Family disputes and juvenile delinquency would be severe. Crimes committed by children especially are not to be overlooked.
Newcomers and females put on impressive performances this year. In fact, 2007 favours women, especially middle aged women.
Large public rallies, countless agitations, raised tempers, high tensions and traffic congestion will mark this year as ugly. The year has the potential for situations to gather great speed or burn out of control.
The Pig Year also brings about many changes: changes at all levels. Changes in profession, career changes, moving out of homes and offices, shifting to new school/college, sudden change in governments, etc. Inter-country immigrations will rise drastically.
The year also indicates heavy travelling : personally and in profession too. Thus tourism, travels and transportation sectors will flourish in a big way. At the same time, all types of transports will be more accident prone : road transports, trains, shipping and airplanes.
Avoid travelling to the North West of your place directly, as the Annual TaiSui is situated there and it is not advised to confront this war-like energy formation. Accidents are also likely to occur to objects or structures situated in great heights like satellites, bridges, high-rise buildings, mountains, giant wheels, etc.
There will be many disasters pertaining to fire and water: fire disasters, volcanic eruptions, wild forest fires, fire arm explosions, bomb attacks, even possible nuclear threats; earthquakes, avalanches, heavy rains, torrential floods, unceasing sea winds, reflux of sea water, defeating atmospheric frosts and melancholic dampness.
The world population is more susceptible to microbic and viral infections, especially those that affect the abdomen and intestines. There will be many problems related to digestive disorders, food poisoning, blood circulation, heart, nerves, eyes and hypertension.
The popularity of yoga, tai-chi and qi-gong will increase. The practicality of meditation will be more understood.
There will be strange troubles arising out of burials and burial grounds. Religious tensions, racist riots and cult conflicts will be on the rise and in some cases, they will trigger small scale wars or group suicides. Superstitions and manipulations will rule.
Drug trafficking will grow by leaps and bounds. Wildlife slaughter and bird hunting will increase. The struggle against pollution will intensify.
This year Electrical, Chemistry, Petroleum and Computer Businesses would have the best performance. All areas related to Information, Banking, Finance, Windmills, Insurance, House Renovations and Building Materials, Food Businesses, Hotels, Beauty Clinics, Health Spas, Lottery, Law, Medical Tools and Medicines, Advertising, Lighting, Gifts, Furniture, Fengshui and Vaastu will prosper. Computer Media and Mobile Phones will do well in spite of stiff competition.
Businesses related to Stock Markets, Real Estates, Construction, Automobiles, Fashion Garments, Printing & Publishing, Religions, Astrology, Antiques and Consultations will do average.
Industries and Professions pertaining to Shipping, Fishing, Mining, Hardware, Entertainment, Textiles, Animal Husbandry, Marine Products and Agriculture will be unfavoured.
Professionals and the self-employed will do better this year. There will be several mergers of industrial groups and hostile take-overs will be plenty. Small business enterprises will form unofficial groups and prosper. This is a year that favours team work. Money will come in more easily and unexpectedly, but will ooze out porously.
The general living standards of the people will improve greatly. The material lives will improve significantly with the help of technology gadgets and the ever expanding communications network and easily accessible and economical internet. In that way, a year to savour!
