What kind of fortune will the new year bring? How will Taiwan fare in the coming months? These are always the questions on people's minds when the Lunar New Year gets underway.
The answers are of course unknowable to us mortals. So believers in Taiwan's folk religion put these questions instead to the gods.
Fortune will smile on Taiwan in the Year of the Pig. That's the verdict of the gods at two Taipei-area temples.
On Monday, Taipei's Dalongdong Baoan Temple performed a ceremony to determine Taiwan's luck for the coming year. The ceremony involves drawing lots, each associated with a poem. The poem is then interpreted for signs of what is to come.
The lot Baoan Temple drew is linked with good fortune. The associated poem has been interpreted to mean that Taiwan will be protected if it puts forth a good effort this year.
Meanwhile, Yonglian Temple in New Taipei drew four lots, each associated with one of the four traditional classes of people: scholars, artisans, farmers, and merchants. Altogether, the lots predict a year of peace and stability for all walks of life.
