Your Chinese zodiac prediction in 2021: grocery edition

What’s in store for you in the Year of the Ox? Whether you’re a true believer or just want some astrological fun, the Chinese zodiac has been around for a long time. It began with the story when the Jade Emperor wanted to select 12 animals to be his guards, and his mandate was that earlier ones who went through the Heavenly Gate would enjoy a better rank1.

Shop, don’t stop your destiny — here’s the 12 Chinese zodiac signs and our fun take on what you can stock up on for an auspicious year ahead!

You may experience friction in several areas of your life, including romance. Reduce constant friction in romantic relationships by spending time together regularly. A movie night with snacks such as savoury Indonesia prawn crackers sounds like a plan! If you’ve got a sweet tooth, try 100% pure premium raw honey over plain popcorn instead. Carefully sourced from the flora-rich wild regions of Australia, every flavourful drop is free from unnecessary flavourings, additives and colourings! There are also other ways to use honey to sweeten up the mood, but we’ll leave that to your imagination.
