“It is still favourable to start work the following day, which is Febrary 18,” said Choo during the MINGS 2013 “Outlook Talk Twists and Turns in the Year of the Snake.
Industries which are likely to do well in the Year of the Snake are those related to the water, wood and metal elements.
Insurance, finance, journalism, education as well as metal and mineral-related businesses are said to do well.
Unfortunately, industries related to the earth and fire elements, such as property, construction, paint and telecommunication may not fare as well.
Lucky and unlucky colours
She also predicts that blue, green and purple outfits will be the “lucky colours” for the upcoming Chinese New Year.
It is said that blue is the most favourable colour because it represents the “water” element. However, the colours red and yellow, which represent fire and earth respectively, was said to be the least favourable colours for the Year of the Snake.
These lucky colours aren’t only for clothes. You can apply it to when you buy a car or even when you choose accessories for your mobile phone.
“You could even paint a small portion of your home in one of these colours,” said Choo, adding that the colours would attract good luck.
