Promotion for the tiger likely in the Year of the Dragon

Born in Cambodia to a Chinese family, fortune-teller Lok Long, 63, learned the Chinese horoscope system in the 1980s. According to Lok Long, time is recycled every twelve years. Each year of the twelve-year cycle is represented by an animal: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. For the year of the dragon, Lok Long has made predictions about good and bad fortunes and also offers advice to people who were born in each year.

Rat
You are lucky this year. Property will go to you constantly. However, the Chinese horoscope indicates that you may face a ‘white tiger.’ This means that you may face a traffic accident, so you have to be careful. To avoid this accident, you should do an offering ceremony at Wat Phnom or at a Chinese temple in Takmao where a tiger statue exists. You must put a piece of fresh pork and two fresh eggs, one with a picture of a tiger on it, into the mouth of the tiger statue before you light three ancient sticks. Then you take one egg, the one with the picture, and throw it away on the road. March, June, July and October are unlucky months for you, so you have to be cautious during those times. Blue and green are good colours for you, and the lucky numbers are 3 and 8. You should display a picture of a monkey in your house.

Ox
Your fortune is average this year. This means that you may face both good and bad luck. You will be lucky if you meet anyone who was born in the year of the monkey or the rat. The horoscope suggests that you should do anything to help a poor person so that your dignity will be raised up. It also warns the old people, who were born in the year of the ox, not to have a love relationship with the younger, or it will bring controversy into your family, especially between you and your spouse. For men, you should avoid arguing with women. Both men and women need to watch out for exploitation. You can be cheated by anyone who was born in the year of the horse, sheep or dog. April, June, July and October are unlucky months for you, so you have to pay close attention during this time. The good color for you is gold, and the lucky numbers are 5 and 10. You should display a picture or statue of a rooster in your house.

Tiger
The Chinese horoscope shows that anyone who was born in the year of the tiger will be promoted to a higher position at his or her workplace. However, it also shows that you have a sign of mourning or property destruction. It warns that in May and August you should not attend a funeral ceremony. If you have to go, do not watch the corpse or the coffin nor should you accompany the corpse. If you travel at night, you have to be careful between 3 am and 5 am because it is an unlucky time for you. When you do business, do it properly and do not cheat others. Also, this year you have to spend your money carefully. The good colour for you is black and the lucky numbers are 1 and 6. You should wear a necklace or clothes with the picture of a pig.  

Rabbit
You just got out of the overlapped year (the old year), so you are luckier than last year. This year, your business will be glorious, but you have to conduct your business fairly. Do not gamble! The horoscope shows that you may meet a ‘fierce female giant.’ This means that you are vulnerable to being infected by disease. So this year you should avoid working too hard and making your body too exhausted. In September and December you should not get angry with anyone. The food that you eat has to be hygienic. If you plan a trip, do it during an appropriate time. The good colour for you is blue, and the lucky numbers are 3 and 8. Any time you exercise, you should wear a necklace or clothes with the picture of a monkey.

Dragon (overlapped year)
Civil servants and students will have good fortune this year. Your horoscope predicts that you will do an outstanding job and that everyone will be proud of you. Anyone who was born in 1976 would do well trading in gold or iron, but someone who was born in 1964 should invest in wood. However, the overlapped year is not really good, so the horoscope suggests three things. (1) Do not build a house, repair a house or stay close to a construction site. (2) Do not attend a funeral ceremony or watch the corpse. (3) Do not watch any offering event of the wedding ceremony. To avoid bad luck, you should make an offering of food and gifts three times this year. The first time is on February 6, 2012, the second time is on August 6, 2012, and the third time is on February 4, 2013. The good colour for you is golden yellow, and the lucky numbers are 5 and 10. You should display a picture or statue of a dragon with nine heads in your house.    

Snake
Men are lucky while women are unlucky. However, both men and women are lucky if you can get married this year. The horoscope warns both men and women not to gamble, or you will be the loser. All women have to be cautious of your love relationships because the horoscope predicts that you may lose your love this year. If you are a married woman, you should not argue with your husband if you find out that he has another girl because your argument can bring greater harm to you. So you should deal with it peacefully. The good colour for you is bright blue, and the lucky numbers are 3 and 8. You should wear a necklace or clothes with the picture of a rooster.

This is believed to be bad, according to the ancient Chinese king who used five horses to destroy the corpse of his enemy. The horoscope recommends that you do not join the funeral ceremony because you have a sign of mourning this year. If you have to go, please keep a pomegranate flower with you. Do not contribute the money with even numbers such as 2, 4, or 8 to the ceremony. As well, you should use a different path to return home. You should take care of the health of your grandmother or grandfather. The good colour for you is golden yellow, and the lucky numbers are 5 and 10. You should wear a necklace or clothes with the picture of sheep.  

Sheep

If you see people arguing with each other, do not assist as the negotiator, or you will be beaten. This year you will hear rumours everywhere, so you have to do your best to solve such problems. The horoscope warns that you should not to go to court. But if you must go, you should wear a necklace or clothes with the picture of a horse because it may help.
