I have always been a big fan of the Chinese Horoscope, especially around Chinese New Year. However, some of the Tiger predictions for the Year of the Fire Monkey seem pretty crappy for me so I have been hesitant to post them here for fear of making some of those bad predictions come true!

Maybe not so much because of the predictions but more so because of the compatibility analysis and personality analysis. I feel like I learned a lot about myself and others close to me reading this. Hope you do as well.

Except if you´re a girl or a boy under the age of 6 and then you pretty much
hated the party because Darth Vader and Darth Maul were the scariest things you
had ever seen in your life.
Then Mom left right after the birthday party and Dad came with
his wife about 2 days later to spend Easter weekend with us. It was a great
visit, we did a lot of touristy things that I don´t normally get to do with
Mom.We went to the Ballesta Isles in
Paracas to see the wildlife, we went to pisco tours to learn about that whole
process, and we went to do the sand buggies in the Ica dessert, something I had
