Without any lucky stars shining over them, those born in the Year of the Dragon (1964, 1976, 1988 or any 12 years before or after) will have to be careful. People born under this zodiac (such as billionaire Li Ka-shing) could steer clear of lawsuits, which might take a toll on their personal fortunes. Thankfully, when it comes to their careers, this could be the year to shine, however, says Peter So Man-feng. Even without trying too hard, Dragons will get plenty of new opportunities to progress. Keep an eye out for heartthrob Yi Yangqianxi, one of the biggest names in Chinese entertainment last year, who could see his stardom explode to new heights.
