If you are wondering what that entails, this report consults the experts on bazi (fortune charts), wu-xing (five-element theory) and xuan kong (flying stars). CLSA itself describes the report as a light-hearted exercise. But before anyone dismisses this as a mere marketing ploy or mystical mumbo-jumbo, take a look at last year's forecast. It is a pretty close match to how the Hang Seng actually performed. The CLSA index also looks at health, relationships and work for the year to come. If you were born in the year of the Rooster, Dog or Ox (Cow), it is going to be a great year, says the report. If you are a Pig, Goat (Sheep), Tiger or Snake, it's best to fast forward to 2014. Interestingly, those with the same birth sign as the year sign invariably have bad years. There's something else to keep in mind. The Snake sheds its skin, which in the Chinese horoscope signals new ideas or developments, both good and bad. The Depression year of 1929 was a Snake year, as was 1989 (Tiananmen Square) and 2001 (the 9/11 attacks). In fact the past five Snake years have not been very encouraging, says the report.

Fortune Foretelling in 2013
Overview: In 2013 - the Year of the Snake, the horse people should do everything by themselves instead of turning to others. By that, they can get good fortune. Also the expense will not be that much. In general, their fortune will get better bit by bit.
Career: They will find that the career life is not that smooth. Great pressure on work makes them more responsible, which happen to help them get more experience. In addition, they need to be modest and honest in handling work for fear that their positions be unstable.
Wealth: Good fortune in wealth will come to them this year. The satisfactory income should be well applied to develop their career to earn more. At the same time, their expense will also climb up. In that case, the idea of the experts should be taken into consideration in case being cheated.
Relationship: They are suggested to control their emotions. Otherwise, many arguments will happen between them and their partners. Singles need think twice to choose a most suitable partner. This is a good year for male horse people to get married or have a baby. They also need more efforts to hold a good relationship with others to prevent from being cheated. It is suggested to be smart enough in case that the contributions are taken away.
Health: The physical condition should be paid much attention, especially discomfort in lungs and bronchus. They may get hurt accidentally this year. To fix this, they can donate blood in the beginning of 2013. Aside from the physical health, they should overcome the anxiety and impatience to keep mental health.
