“According to Chinese astrology, people in their zodiac year are believed to offend Tai Sui, the God of Age, and incur his curse. It is believed to bring nothing but bad luck. Therefore Chinese astrology followers pay special attention to their conduct every twelfth year of their lives, i.e. in their birth sign years.”
I was born in 1981 which is the Chinese Year of the Rooster and 2017 is also the Chinese Year of the Rooster. Luckily I found out from a friend about the curse of Tai Sui and I took some precautions before the lunar year began last week:
- My standing desk in my home office has been rotated 180° to face due East (facing away from Tai Sui in the West);
- Kitty gave me some bright red underwear; and
- Kitty also gave me a jade rooster which I carry around in my pocket.
Here’s hoping these precautions are enough to fend off Tai Sui, only time will tell.
