I am Sarah May Low. You may have read, seen, or heard me on Fly FM, JUICE Online, FEMALE Malaysia, CLEO TV, theSundaily, and more.
Other than being a renowned tarot card reader in Malaysia, I am also a master in chakra healing, angel card reading, palmistry, and most importantly in the context of this festivity, a master in Chinese feng shui, I Ching divination, and Taoism oracle.
My experience in various forms of Chinese divination spans across two decades. With the knowledge I possess, I would like to help you understand your fortune in 2021. Here is a brief introduction to the Year of the Ox, which takes the element of Metal in this cycle.
The Year of the Metal Ox begins on 12 February. Oxen symbolise hard work. Hence, many people will find themselves doubling the effort when it comes to building (or re-building) the foundations in many areas of their life this year. Many life issues and problems will also be resolved as long as they possess a high discipline.
To attract love, prosperity, success, and wealth in 2021, everyone's general lucky colours — regardless of zodiac sign — are white (Metal element), yellow, and green.
Here is a table summary of each zodiac fortune prediction:
If a zodiac has a clash with 'Tai Sui' (the guardian God for everything), it means that the person of that animal sign will suffer from bad luck that year.
