Favourable zodiac signs for 2019
Rat, Horse, Dragon, Dog and Monkey are good in 2019

According to Master Kenny Hoo, there are five zodiacs that are favourable with noble people support or "kwai yan" in cantonese. Noble people means they may have help from other people along the way, maybe even people they do not know or strangers. This means that those born under these zodiacs may have a better, smoother 2019 year. The five favourable zodiacs are Rat, Horse, Dog, Monkey and Dragon. The Rat is the first one 2019, they may have promotions, things and events going smoothly, congratulations!

Other zodiacs preditions 
For Rabbit, Goat, Boar and Rooster, there arguments or legal issues so just be careful. They can try to avert by doing some painting, renovations at certain positions at home or office following some Feng Shui tips by Master Kenny Hoo. Try not to make heavy investments and take care of health.
 Don't worry, Master Kenny Hoo says you can also rub off the good luck from the favourable zodiacs! For example if you have a Rat in the house or a collegue who is a Rat, just talk to them more often, always shake hand with them. Who knows they may have some good luck or projects, they can share with you. They may treat you to a meal if they strike lottery! Hehe...

Marriage and Baby luck
For those born in the year of Horse and Dragon, this year they may feel they want to tie the knot! Or for those who do family planing this 2019 year maybe a good year for them to have babies.

Auspicious sectors/directions - South and North
South and North is very good sectors. Enhanced and activate it by adding a touch of Spiced Honey paint! It can be also any small ornaments of this amber earth tone color. 

North sector is good for scholastic and love and relationship. So it is good for your children's study room, make sure it is tidy and place trophies in the north. For companies, hang some happy group photos of employees, trophies or achievements so that more sales and more business will follow in.
