Water poses greater threats to the Snakes this year, hence Master Qi reminds you to stay away from water activities or going out on a picnic near water. Travelling more to the south side of Singapore might boost your fortune. Instead of water, walk amongst tall trees at the Southern Ridges. Connecting Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve, the 10km trail will bring you to some of Singapore’s best vantage points, letting you experience diverse flora and teeming wildlife throughout your hike. To soak in the rich colonial history of the area, stay at Villa Samadhi, housed within a restored colonial garrison in Labrador Nature Reserve. This tranquil hotel offers guests a romantic evening at a private terrace, as well as a refreshing dip in the outdoor pool.

Horse

Fire governs the sign of the Horse. 2022 might not be the best year for those born in the Year of the Horse overall, especially in your love life. Married ladies should pay extra attention as they might bring misfortune to their partners unintentionally. Luck in wealth is average this year. Control your expenses and expand your source of income via cautious means. Steer away from impulse shopping, avoid making reckless investment decisions and gambling, or else you might experience huge losses that could affect your family. In order to prevent your fortune from taking a bad turn, Master Qi reminds the Horses to avoid getting cut by trees or sharp objects.

Enhance your overall fortune this year by heading to the south, especially if you are trying to develop a long-term and steady relationship with your partner.

Monkey
Year of Birth: 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968 and 1956

2022 Fortune Prediction
Stepping into a year of Fan Tai Sui (offending Tai Sui, the grand commander of the Chinese zodiac) in 2022, those born in the Year of the Monkey will experience a relatively tough year. There might be some financial loss, accidents, or injuries. Metal governs the sign of the Monkey. Master Qi points out the Monkeys might feel emotionally unstable more easily this year. Wear bright colours and avoid all-black outfits.

Avoid water as you are prone to water accidents this year. Instead, consider exploring downtown Orchard and its surrounds for a change. As the epicentre for food, shopping and entertainment, you will never run out of things to do in this lively and vibrant district. For a home away from home experience, book a stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore, quietly tucked away from the main Orchard Road shopping belt. With the perfect blend of privacy and accessibility to all that you need for a warm and comforting stay, this is as good as it gets for a spontaneous getaway without leaving the country.

Those who are in a steady relationship will enjoy more stability. Metal governs the sign of the Rooster. Include gold in your daily outfit or wear golden accessories. A special reminder to those who drive, don’t drive fast or run a red light even if you are in a hurry.

Got a pet? Master Qi has a special advice for you. Taking a pawcation with your furry friend could help boost the luck of yourself and your pet! Consider pet-friendly hotels such as InterContinental Singapore, which provides a wide range of pet amenities including beds, gourmet treats and exclusive pet-friendly menu or enjoy a five-star experience for you and your furry friend in a Heritage Suite. 

Dog
Year of Birth: 2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1958 and 1946

It will also be a year filled with fortune at the same time, so be sure to seize every opportunity you get at work to grow your fortune. Earth governs the sign of the Dog. You might experience more emotional fluctuations this year. Sleep more for a healthier lifestyle and pay extra attention to your eyes and heart.

New Year Travel Recommendations
For those who plan to go on a long trip with friends, avoid arguments and try your best to keep disagreements from turning into fights. Be more considerate and communicative, otherwise it might affect your luck in relationships. Avoid heading to the south. Travelling to the west or northwest side will be a better option. Consider heading up to Colombo, Sri Lanka – a city rich with history spanning over 3,000 years. Cleanse your soul and immerse yourself with an Ayurvedic treatment, shaped by ancient recipes on herbs and diets. A trip to Sri Lanka is incomplete without experiencing the many dishes featuring Sri Lankan spices and Ceylon cinnamon, as well as the famous Ceylon Tea. Stay at the Shangri-La Colombo for breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean, from the comfort of the hotel’s rooftop pool!

Pig
Year of Birth: 2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959 and 1947

2022 Fortune Prediction
Water governs the sign of the Pig. 2022 marks a stable year for those born in the Year of the Pig. There will be less ups and downs in your wealth, career and health compared to last year. Entering a year of Fan Tai Sui (offending Tai Sui, the grand commander of the Chinese zodiac), the Pigs are recommended to take public transportation instead of driving during travel. Pay close attention if you choose to drive. Keep your eyes open for traffic and road conditions to prevent accidents. Don’t forget to place a bottle of water or a fengshui talisman in your car for safety.

Those born in Year of the Pig are the most suitable to travel this year. Do more outdoor activities and head south – you might just meet the love of your life and have a much higher chance of turning your crush into a formal relationship! For those who are looking for romance, consider a relaxing trip to Perth in Australia. Check in at the Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough and experience the natural beauty of its stunning beaches, serene vineyards and national parks.
