YEAR OF THE DOG (In the Chinese calendar it's 4716) Paradoxically   the   year   of   the   Dog   will   bring happiness   and   dissent   in   same   boat.   The Dog's       domestic       auspices       will       bring harmony   to   home   life,   patriotism   to   one's country   and   unwavering   fealty   to   whatever cause you wish to support. On   the   other   hand,   his   rigid   willpower   and unbending   sense   of   justice   will   also   lead   to major   confrontations   with   the   weaker   side getting    the    upper    hand.    It    is    a    year    in which   controversial   issues   will   be   awarded a   hearing   and   unconventional   but   effective changes    will    be    introduced.    Equality    and liberty    will    be    advocated    by    the    Dog's noble influence. We    will    become    more    idealistic    in    our views,     shedding     some     materialism     by doing       charitable       acts       or       otherwise championing     some     worthy     projects.     A perfect    time    to    reassess    our    sense    of values,    polish    up    our    virtues    and    go    on crusades against tyranny and oppression. In    spite    of    the    Dog's    dismal    outlook,    he brings    stability    because    people    do    not usually    dare    to    challenge    his    authority when   they   see   how   intent   he   is   on   keeping the peace. This   will   also   be   a   year   in   which   we   will wish    we    could    relax    more    without    the cynical   Dog   constantly   casting   worries   on our   minds.   Then   again,   perhaps   it   will   be the   Dog's   ever-watchful   eye   that   will   be   the main force in keeping this time calm. Aside     from     this     feeling     of     uneasiness, there   should   be   no   cause   for   alarm.   We can   go   about   our   business   as   usual   since the Dog makes the perfect sentry. The    Dog's    year    will    lend    integrity    to    our intentions   and   make   us   act   in   good   faith. Nothing   should   concern   us   so   long   as   we stick to the righteous path. Theodora Lau
