2009 Chinese Horoscope - Year of the Ox (Cow) Predictions

This is Chinese Five Element Horoscope for 2009 using your birthday and birth time. It's important to review what is our standing point in the previous year before predicting the coming year of Ox. 2008, Year of Brown Rat, is an intangible and unpredictable Year. Many people are suffering the pressure on housing issue, career stress, financial trouble, recovery from natural hazard of earthquake, flood, cyclone, tornado, or fire. We hope you are lucky and doing fine during this period. We also recommend you read the Predictable Roller Coaster Life in 2008 Brown Rat Year page before something unexpected happens on you.

The animal sign Cow in Chinese Horoscope is a female. We prefer to say 2009 is a Brown Cow Year than Brown Ox or Buffalo Year. Brown is equivalent to Earth in Chinese Astrology Five Element theory. The major element in Cow is Earth. It's very clear that Earth comes very strong in 2009.

Earth is the ground under our feet. The ground is very steady. It's required lots of energy to make it move. This implies the difficulty to make a chance in 2009. Earth is the land. Land is related to Real Estate property. The major focus in 2009 will be the land related issues. Hopefully, the Real Estate market will be gradually stable. Certainly, it's necessary that people put extra efforts and time to work on the problems.

Since 2009 Year of Cow contains strong Earth, people should have a very good luck, if their Chinese Astrology Lucky Element is Earth. The good luck should come to them in the months of Earth. But which months are the month of Earth?

In the theory of Chinese Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire Earth),

The Earth season is the days between four seasons. Chinese astrology says the Earth is charge of the 18 days before each season. The Earth Cycle will repeat about every two and a half month. The total Earth days in a year is 72. When is the strongest period of Earth in 2009? Because Fire is the mother element of Earth, therefore, we can say that the strongest period of Earth is the 18-day before the season of Fall.

If your lucky element is Earth and you are expecting something nice to happen, then the first target date will be in the second half of April. If it doesn't happen, then you have to wait for the date in the end of July, October, then January 2010. If the Earth is your unlucky element, then you need to prepare the emergency plan and even pay attention on daily activities during seasons changing. The good news for unlucky Earth people is that they always have at least two month break before the next unlucky cycle comes.

Because Earth is the mother element of Metal. Earth can make Metal stronger. If your Lucky Element is Metal, then 2009 is a good year to you. The lucky season is the Fall - August, September and October.

If you think the Five Element Astrology is too complicate to you, then try the following 2009 Chinese Zodiac prediction.

Yearly Zodiac Sign

Yearly Cycle contains Stem and Branch. Stem is one of Five Elements. Branch is an animal zodiac sign. The zodiac sign contains one or more Five Elements. Based on the major element in the animal sign, we can place Rat and Pig in the Water group; Tiger and Rabbit in the Wood group; Snake and Horse in the Fire group; Monkey and Chicken in the Metal group; Cow, Sheep. Dragon and Dog in the Earth group. So we can treat Yearly zodiac sign as two different, separate, independent elements, which are connected to things or persons. Both of elements might be against or with us. Or one element helps us and another doesn't.

For example, 2001 was the Metal Snake year. Snake is in the Fire group. Therefore Metal and Fire came together into our life in 2001. Metal and Fire have Fighting Relationship. Something like that we go to pass the war zone of two fighting persons or two persons fight each other outside our house. That means most people's life will be impacted by the outside world, which fill with argument and conflict. On September 11, 2001, around 3,000 are killed in World Trade Center in New York City and Pentagon.

2002 was Water Horse Year and Horse is Fire. Fire and Water are opposite elements. On March 1, 2002, U.S. allied invaded Afghanistan. 2003 was Water Sheep Year and Sheep is Earth. Earth and Water have Fighting Relationship. On March 20, 2003, U.S. allied invaded Iraq. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are continuing in 2009. 2004 was Wooden Monkey Year and Monkey is Metal. Metal and Wood are rival opponents. Tsunami disasters hit Southeast Asia on December 26, 2004. 2005 is Wooden Chicken Year. Chicken is Metal. Metal and Wood have the fighting relationship. The 2005 Pakistan earthquake killed about 80,000 people...

Fire vs. Water Earth vs. Water Metal vs. Wood Metal vs. Wood Water vs. Earth Water vs. Fire

Many wars, earthquakes, airplane accidents and natural disasters happened in many countries from 2001 to 2008. We expect they will continue to happen. As long as the conflicts surrounding in our living environment, we don't get a fully peaceful life.

Is there any way to make those conflicts disappear? The answer is depending on each individual's Birth Chart and the current Major Cycle having any Stem Attraction Relationship and Branch Attraction Relationship with Yearly Cycle. For example, 2008 is Earth Rat Year. Rat is Water. If there is a Cow in the Birth Chart or Major Cycle, then Rat and Cow have Attraction Relationship turning into Earth. It sounds that Cow meets Rat to make Water disappear. Actually, Water still comes first. It implies that an enemy comes to trouble you, but someone appears to negotiate and walk away with the enemy. You have a happy ending. But you have to pay for the effort. The Attraction Relationship doesn't always bring the good ending. If you are a single male and Water Rat represents a female to you, then that implies a female appearing into your life, but she walks away with your boy friend.

2006 and 2009 are the only two years without Five element fighting relationship inside yearly zodiac signs from 2001 to 2013. 2006 is a Fire Dog Year. Dog is Earth. Fire is a mother element of Earth. Real Estate market price peak was in 2006. We hope there is a good new coming in 2009.
