Psychic astrologer Heather Zais has some comforting words for those worried by the abundance of apocalyptic predictions about 2012.
“Don’t worry, the world is not going to end,” she said, from her Bernard Avenue office.
Zais has been offering up prognostications based on a mix of numerology and astrology—both western and Chinese—for the better part of four decades, and said her annual offerings have an 80 per cent success rate.
Last year, for example, the stars led her to believe it would be a year of big endings and lo’ and behold, the world said goodbye to oppressive regimes and leaders.
Now we’re heading into the Year of the Dragon, which offers a mixed bag.
“It brings good fortune,” said Zais, noting that dragon years are suited to celebrations of pomp and circumstance— something much deserved after such a lengthy dry spell from festive fodder.
“But also, with it being a number five year, there’s a lot of change and fluctuation ahead.”
Among other things, she said, expect large successes and victory over adversity in the business realm.
“It’s a water dragon year, which favours growth and expansion,” she said.
“It’s also a year to let go of fruitless pursuits.”
Politicians and community leaders could offer up some dragon-like speeches, filled fire, brimstone and a puff of “hot air.” They’d be well advised, however, to try and practice a bit of “diplomacy” so as not to “awaken any sleeping dragons.”
Keeping with the fire-breathing theme, Zais said that wind will play out as a dominant theme in the year ahead.
“As we know dragons breathe hot air, so it will be a fire year with hot air and hot winds,” she said. “People should prepare ahead for something like that, in more areas than just Kelowna.”
“There will be a fair amount of storms and the cleanup from tsunamis and things falling from the sky. Because the dragon and the fire and the hot air, there will be volcanic activity and fires fanned by winds.”
She’d also like to caution people to backup their e-files, as something may interfere with them.
