The next Chinese New Year starts on 02-05-2019. Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, is the most important Chinese holiday.
Typically, the celebration begins on New Years Eve and lasts for about 15 days until the middle of the first month. Before the celebration, people traditionally clean their houses thoroughly and also display traditional New Year decorations.
What is the Chinese zodiac?
The general consensus is that the zodiacs originally had something to do with the worship of animals. A zodiac system has existed in Chinese culture since the Qin Dynasty, more than 2,000 years ago.
Over time, the zodiacs became more and more integrated into everyday life, with different meanings and characteristics assigned to each animal. This, in turn, resulted in various data combinations (and incompatibilities) between each zodiac, and they play an important role in marriage and career decisions, divination, and more.
What will happen to you and the world 2019?
2019 is the year of the Earth Yin Pig. Yin energy on Earth is connected to the plain. The pig contains Yang water and Yang wood. Yang Wood is a tall tree. Yang water is the river or running water. The sign of 2019 is the river flowing into the plain. It might flash a little dirt.
The transition from Earth Dog Yang of 2018 to Pig Earth Yin 2019 is that the mountains collapse into the plain. That implies that something unexpected and incredible will happen. Big companies or someone who is strong and well in 2018 could find great frustration. If you don't have a plan for an unexpected fiasco, then the year of the pig will turn into a crushing year.
The Yin Pig of Earth 2019 is equivalent to Hexagram 7 of I-Ching, Division of Water and Underground Earth and Shih Water. Shin means the division of the army. Water is the resource for living. A land needs water. In I-Ching, water is connected to danger. This implies that people fight for resources, money, sea and land in 2019. People must have discipline, wisdom and leadership to solve problems. But the most important thing is that people have to maintain morality and ethical principles in order to gain reputation and wealth. In 2019, most people will focus on income, property, finances, and the economy.
Economy 2019 and your career, finances, wealth
The global economic outlook continues to strengthen, but risks have increased. The new lower tax rates in the US should help businesses save more money or hire more employees. However, many companies have sent thousands of workers home in 2018 and have planned the same strategy for the next few years.
The trade war between the United States and China continues. The higher fees threaten many American and Chinese companies. Ford Motor is preparing for more than 20,000 mass layoffs around the world after losing $ 1 billion to Trump's trade tariffs. GM announced 14,000 job cuts in November 2018. HP Inc. planned job cuts of 4,500 to 5,000 employees by the end of fiscal year 2019. J.C. Penney, Macy’s, Sears and Walmart planned to cut about 5,000 positions.
In China, millions of jobs are missing. According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the city (non-national) unemployment rate in China is 5.1% in 2018. That means that at least 50 million Chinese are out of work.
We are not focusing on the negative news. The prognosis is that people prepare for bad weather. 2018 was a roller coaster year for some people. Other people have stable positions, but they will lose their jobs before Christmas. If the global economy continues to grow and the stock market continues to rise, then people shouldn't worry too much about their jobs.
The trade war or peace between the United States and China is the key to the global economy. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping declared a truce on the new tariffs as trade talks continue for 90 days since the G-20 leaders' meeting in December 2018. That's good news for markets. labor. But Donald Trump is the Master of the Deal. No one knows when Donald Trump will change his mind during or after the negotiations. If trade negotiations break down without an agreement, the profit margins of companies in both countries will be cut. This will continue to threaten global economic growth and then affect the job market and the stock market.
