All around the world people will celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year on February 19th, 2015 but we will bid farewell to 甲午 (Jia Wu) a bit earlier. At 11:58 AM on February 4th, 2015 we will usher in 乙未 (Yi Wei) year. This is the year of the wood sheep. When looking ahead to 2015, Yi Wei year, what can we expect?
The hexagram for Yi Wei year is 益 (Yi). Yi hexagram symbolizes “increase” and teaches us to follow the good that we see and correct the wrongs that we come across. As such, we can expect a trend towards increased moral consciousness. We should also see a rise in companies that practice corporate social responsibility. In addition, with wind (Xun trigram) over thunder (Chen trigram) we will see the more vocal outcry from the general public, however the government will be unable to illicit satisfactory change.
Economically, we should see the strongest sectors in industries such as paper, lumber, agriculture, medicine, and education. In addition, since Wei is Pien Tsai to Yi expect non-traditional companies to gain economically this year. Overall, we expect central and western European economies to grow in 2015. The Russian and Japanese economies should start to see a turnaround in 2015. In North America, we should expect to see continuing economic growth and new innovations to be financially rewarded, however real estate will show a slight decline in 2015.
Wood (Yi) controls earth (Wei) which, politically, shows that the government of countries that are going through civil unrest will impose more restraint on the general population. Expect more military involvement to keep the population under control. In addition, there will be uncontrolled corruption in the Middle East this year.
On the world front, there looks to be increased fighting and civil unrest in Africa. There will also be issues in South American, most likely mudslides and flooding. In the Caribbean, we expect hurricane season to be difficult this year.
Socially, because Yi Wei year will not see a 立春 (Li Chun), this year will not be as celebratory as last. Expect more somber moods overall. In the Pan Am games, expect Canadians and Americans to dominate the podium.
