Hong Kong CNN —  

If Donald Trump believes his victory is written in the stars, he may just be right.

With the Year of the Monkey and the New Hampshire primary upon us, CNN asked Hong Kong fortune teller Priscilla Lam to divine the fates of the candidates battling it out for the U.S. presidency.

A practitioner of feng shui, the ancient Chinese system of summoning good luck, she combined the art of face reading with analysis of the candidates’ birthdays and current life cycles according to the Chinese Zodiac.

She says the new lunar year will fuel good fortune for “earth dog” Donald Trump, while also lighting a fire under Hillary Clinton.

Bernie Sanders’ missing metal is a problem with older voters and the fighting elements of fire, and water might just leave Marco Rubio all wet. And don’t ask about Ted Cruz’s face reading.

Lam says she is “about 80%” confident in her predictions for the 2016 election. Those sound like pretty good odds.
