2023 - The year of the Cat

THE CAT
2023, 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951

The cat's association with the moon in Vietnamese mythology has created a sign that is partial to beauty. They are sensitive creatures who place great importance on peace and tranquillity. The Cat is also the sign that indicates longevity and fortune. They are quietly determined, talented and wildly ambitious. Cats are very tactful and can negotiate contracts with alarming clarity. They are pleasant people, kind and considerate to the sensitivities of others, Cats know how to take things in their stride without getting overly stressed out. They are well liked for their cool demeanour. And yet, when the going gets tough, the Cat will make a hasty exit, passing the buck to others. Cats are also hypersensitive and overly sentimental. They tend to get moody and have a quiet cunningness under their pleasant veneer. Cats may think they are being cautious but in reality, they like to complicate matters, often indulging in the worst case scenario.

Famous people born in the Year Of The Cat:


Ho Chi Minh, Andy Warhol, Tran Van Huong, Henri Huet, Jane Luu, Dat Phan, Phan Thi Kim Phuc, Kathleen Luong, Alex Rodriguez, Frank Sinatra, Angelina Jolie, Gilbert Bécaud, Anthony Quinn, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Whitney Houston, Cat Woods, Lionel Messi, Benjamin Bratt, Bodie Olmos, Brad Pitt, Cesar Chavez, Charlize Theron, Tina Turner, Gina Lollobrigida, Johnny Depp, Chris Cooper, Confucius, Drew Barrymore, Einstein, Enrique Iglesias, Michael Jordan, Eva Longoria, Fernando Lamas, Francis Ford Coppola, Freddy Rodríguez, Germaine Greer,  Geoffrey Rush, Jane Seymour, Kate Winslet, Michael Jordan, Michael Keaton, Nanette Newman, Neil Sedaka, Nicolas Cage, Olga San Juan, Orson Welles, Rudolph Nureyev, Steven Segal, Tina Turner.


 


Health: Overall Cats have an average health condition. In winter to late spring, when in relatively poor health, they should pay more attention to doing sports to prevent colds and other infectious diseases, and develop a healthy daily diet. In dry seasons, they should drink more water to keep fit, and do some maintenance for the skin to prevent skin problems. Cats are advised to do some indoor exercise to cope with stress and tension.

Career: With a good-hearted trait, Cats are loved by others; with intellectual scholarship and learnt knowledge, Cats can enjoy a good career as well as wealth. But Cats should bear in mind that they must never give up half way when striving for something. People belonging to Cat zodiac may pursue such careers as cultivation, breeding, education, religion, health care, medicine, culture, police work, diplomat, politician, designer, judiciary, and therapist.
They are balanced and cautious in jobs, and their colleagues value their modesty.

The Best Love Match: 

  Goat and Pig
  xx  
    Cat and Goat: Both are shy and docile, they make a loving couple. They both appreciate good nature and the beauty of life. The Cat is able to bring out the best in the Goat. This couple will find perfect harmony in life.
     
   

Cat and Pig: They are a very compatible couple. The Pig appreciates the good taste of the Cat. The Cat understands the Pig well. They will have a peaceful, harmonious life together.

     

Words of Caution: 

  The Cat and the Rooster are highly incompatible. There is no common ground between the two for a relationship. Compared to the Rooster, the Cat is a pure dreamer and does not pursue hard to fulfill his or her dreams. The Rooster will practically drive the Cat into hiding.

The date of the Vietnamese New Year is determined by the Vietnamese calendar, a lunar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Vietnamese. Vietnamese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Vietnamese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
