What's your future?

Will the Year of the Horse bring you good luck? Check out our tongue-in-cheek horoscope predictions.

Horse (1966, 1978, 1990)

You are said to be happy and positive. And then you have children. But seriously, this is one of the happiest animals in the zodiac. With Singapore at the bottom of the happiness index, you may consider a move to Malaysia.

Goat (1967,1979, 1991)

As the eighth zodiac sign, you should have prospered and married well. That doesn't mean you can call your mother-in-law an old goat. Goats are said to be easily taken in by sad stories. So, this year, try not to think about your mother-in-law.

Monkey (1968, 1980)

If your child is a Monkey, too, you'll use that as an excuse when he swings through the kindergarten canteen pinching all the other kids' food. Avoid too many sweets. A Monkey child on sugar is like Charlie Sheen at the Playboy Mansion.

Rooster (1969, 1981)

You love routine. But expect your Rooster kid to wake you up at 6 every morning for the next 12 months. This year, there will be no sleep, and your child will make more noise than a pair of mating seals.

Dog (1970, 1982)

You're likely to be an honest, loyal, dependable person. Your child will take advantage of all of that. You're generous and will give in to reason. Keep your child out of toy shops or file for bankruptcy.

Pig (1971, 1983)

Parents born in the Year of the Pig are content to eat, sleep and enjoy a vibrant social life. You're in for one miserable year.

Rats (1960, 1972, 1984)

You like to give advice, but the advice is not always received. Welcome to parenthood. This year, be prepared to be ignored a lot. You like to be frugal, but you also buy big stuff. So if the kids don't listen, take away their pocket money and spend it at the mall.

Ox (1961, 1973, 1985)

Children who are born in the Year of the Ox love rigid systems and procedures. Stick them in the nearest tuition centre.

Tiger (1962, 1974, 1986)

You're a natural leader and fiercely independent. In 2014, expect to hear "no" a lot and phrases like "I know how to do it", "Just let me do it my way" and "Why are you locking me in the bedroom?"

Rabbit (1963, 1975, 1987)

Kids who are rabbits tend to be laid-back, apathetic and easy-going. This means they'll never finish their dinner. In 2014, resist the temptation to prod your child with a fork because he'd rather watch the fluffy clouds roll by than eat his chicken rice.

Dragon (1964, 1976, 1988)

You boast magical, mystical abilities. You can make people laugh, cry, shout and scream all at the same time. Your children will think they're capable of anything in 2014, even making fire. Keep them out of the kitchen.

Snake (1965, 1977, 1989)

You can be indecisive. You'll struggle with a dilemma. Should your child have maths tuition, science tuition, or maths and science tuition?
