Questions & Answers on 1978 Chinese Zodiac - Earth Horse
Asked by Niki from UNITED STATES | May. 10, 2021 03:28Reply
This 2021 prediction for me is spot on...how do I change it?
I am December 15, 1978. This 2021 prediction is completely accurate for current life. I work way too much and don't get paid for all the overtime I've been working, I am also still at the bottom of pay even though my job duties are that of a higher level than my pay grade, and I am grossly under appreciated with the work that I do. I have college degrees in psychology (but that is not the field that I currently work in) and have always, my entire life, been very psychologically aware of my life and my surroundings. However, these past few years I have been losing control of my mental awareness and strength and my depression has overtaken me. I am drinking too much alcohol and smoking cigarettes again too much and am just lost in life recently, which is majorly affecting my two children. My love life is pretty much non existent because I tend to push everyone away, and my health is drastically declining (including lung/breathing problems and major insomnia). How do I fix myself? Or is my time on this earth done?

Hi Niki,
I think you should want the things you want and, believe that you should have them. You determine your purpose here. It sounds like something you always wanted to happen never did. Or it did, and it is not everything you dreamed it would be. It happens, but don’t forget that you have the power, not others, to design, to create and to experience life as you want it to be. The Zodiac helps us to understand ourselves, but the fire, the light , the passion and the Devine is inside of each and every one of us. We have immense power to make this life as we wish. Think, visualize and speak of where you want to go and have. When you reach for cigarettes, walk instead. When you reach for a drink, drink water and walk or do anything that keeps you moving. Then imagine better things. Spend time with the kids. It is NOT too late, in fact it is just beginning. If yesterday was not great, today is!
