The Year of the Rooster is being welcomed with prayers for health and happiness. Along with honoring the gods, people are flocking to get their fortunes told.

Many plan their year according to the Chinese zodiac. It’s all based on birthdates.

Wong Mi Kwan wants to know what’s in store for her daughter this year. For the equivalent of €40, she can find out.

Wong Mi Kwan: “My daughter is clever and hard-working. I want to know when she’ll marry and earn good money. After the reading, I know what to watch for.”

Television stations also get in on the act. For example, Hong Kong cable TV is recording predictions for the New Year with Master Yeo, which will bring them soaring ratings and advertising revenue.

Master Yeo cast coins to seek advice from the oracles. He earns more than a lawyer. The rooster will bring some turmoil, but the financial world should remain relatively stable.

Yeo Tin-Ming, Fortune Teller: “The last big financial crisis was in 2008. They come in ten-year cycles, so the next big crash won’t happen until 2018.

Master Yeo has published some twenty books. He also predicted the 2008 financial crisis, which has made him sought after with banks and business people.

He says feng sui and harmonious surroundings are also keys to success.

In Cambodia, he helped a businessman pick the best location for his factory.

Yeo Tin-Ming, Fortune Teller: “In a building with dead spots, chi, or life force, can’t flow properly. People can’t work productively.

Without good feng sui, a company will fail.”

Master Poon agrees. The former banker is now a feng sui consultant, with business clients all over the world.

He wants to help more companies get on the Fortune 500 list.

Feng Shui Poon (pseudonym), Feng Shui Consultant: “Because my background is coming from a banker, and I talk with those tycoons or big CEOs or entrepreneurs, I think my way presentation will be much easier from them to cope with, synchronize it and use in their corporate world.”

Feng shui masters also believe their success also depends on harmonious surroundings because most business deals are based on intuition and gut feelings.

Andy Wong agrees, feng shui helped boost revenue in his financial services company.

Andy Wong, Financial Services Manager: “We hope Master Poon’s analysis will help increase revenue even more — up to 200%

The Year of the Rooster bodes well for the financial industry. With Master Poon’s help, the company hopes the traditional greeting will come true: “May the New Year bring prosperity.”
