This is year is going to be the year of the sheep. Which Chinese zodiac are you? And what does this year hold in readiness for you? Read about it in the KarryOn forecast for 2015.

Well, as the beginning of the year offers many opportunities for astrology lovers to indulge in predicting love and finances, the Chinese New Year offers an entirely new take on what the stars might be forecasting for you this year.

“Chinese horoscopes are based on the birth years of individuals,” explains Paul Ng, a professional Feng Shui master. Feng Shui and the Chinese zodiac both have roots in the I Ching, the ancient Chinese text that helps people determine lucky dates, among other predictions.

Here Ng shares his predictions for 2014 and tells us how our birth sign will affect us this year.
