Four More!

ImageTo bring you luck this new year, Bel Air Jewelry has listed four more things (check out our previous post!) you possibly didn’t know about the year ahead, for a total of eight (a lucky number in Chinese numerology).

5) This year, 2014, is the first year of the wooden horse in 60 years. According to superstition, in your zodiac year you will offend Tai Sui, the god of age, and will experience bad luck for the whole year. To avoid this you should wear something red, which has been given to you by someone else. In general, the lucky colours of team horse are green, red and purple; the lucky numbers are three, four and nine, and the lucky flowers are giant taro and jasmine.

6) Raymond Lo, a feng shui and destiny consultant, says the year of the horse is a year in which people are likely to stand firm on their principles, making negotiation difficult. For example, 2002 (the last year of the horse) was the year of Roy Keane and Mick McCarthy’s legendary World Cup bustup, and 1990 was the year of the poll tax riots.

7) If you were born in the year of the horse, you’re in good company. Fellow members of the horse club include Genghis Khan, Mongol ruler; Franklin D Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the US; Louis Pasteur, a 19th-century scientist; Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon; the American singer Aretha Franklin; and the model Cindy Crawford.

8) Years of the wooden horse are associated with warfare. The battle of Dien Bien Phu, which ended with the defeat of France by the Vietnamese, happened in 1954 and 1894 saw the start of the first Sino-Japanese war. “With such serious conflicts on historical record in the previous two yang wood horse years, I cannot rule out the possibility of war and fierce battle in 2014,” predicts Lo.

If it’s love, fame, passion, or triumph, from all of us at Bel Air, we wish a bejeweled year!

  1. Hi great website! Does running a blog such as this require a large amount of work?

    I’ve very little knowledge of coding however I had been hoping to
    start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or techniques
    for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic but I just had to ask.

    Thank you!
