The Story

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024-5

According to legend, long ago, when there was no way to keep track of time yet, the Jade Emperor (or Emperor of Heaven) called a contest for all the animals in the kingdom. The first 12 animals to arrive at the palace would have a place in the Chinese Horoscope. In order to get to the Emperor they had to cross a fast river.

  1. The Ox was the first to get to the shore on the other side and out of kindness agreed to carry the rat on its back as it swan across the river.
  2. Right before the Ox presented itself to the Emperor, the Rat jumped to the ground and arrived first.
  3. The Tiger swam across and was third.
  4. The Rabbit crossed the river by jumping from rock to rock and hence became the fourth animal.
  5. The Dragon flew, but was fifth because he stopped along the way to make rain and help all beings on Earth.
  6. The Snake was sixth, but only because it had coiled itself around the horse’s hoof, and sprang up before it as the horse was arriving at the palace, so the horse became the seventh animal.
  7. The Horse was seventh, though it should have been sixth, if not for the snake.
  8. The Goat,
  9. the Monkey, and
  10. the Rooster became the eight, ninth and tenth animals in the Chinese Horoscope, arriving all together after sharing a raft.
  11. The Dog, even though it was the best swimmer of them all, was eleventh — it was muddy and it decided to take an extra-long bath when it got to the river.
  12. Just as the emperor was about to call it a day, the Pig arrived. He had gotten hungry during the race, stopped to eat and then took a nap. It woke up with barely enough time to make it to the palace.

Each animal was assigned a year, and that was the beginning of time tracking.

Characteristics of the Dragon (Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024)

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024-2

The Dragon is considered a perfect sign in the Chinese Horoscope, except for the small detail that it isn’t real. Product of the imagination, the Dragon is large, powerful, and has inexhaustible energy.

The Wood Dragon is a messenger from Heaven that bestows gifts on humanity. The Dragon, being all powerful, arrived fifth to the summons of the Jade Emperor, because he stopped to create rain for struggling farmers on the way.

Rain is symbolic of money, so expect the Year of the Dragon to be largely focused on money. It should be easy to make money this year, if your energy meshes well with the energy of the Dragon.

Make sure to check out what’s in store for your particular sign below.

The Dragon sign in the Chinese Horoscope represents:

  • Authority.
  • Freedom.
  • Generosity.

The Dragon is hard-working and enthusiastic, and can’t bear limitations of any kind. The Dragon loves novelty and creativity. When things don’t go its way, the reaction may be explosive, but of short duration.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024-3

During last year, the Chinese Year of the Water Rabbit, changes were constant, as the rabbit zig-zagged to distract and keep itself safe. But this year will be very different. We are going from the energy of a small animal that could become prey to many other larger animals, to the energy of a gigantic imaginary being, that fears nothing.

In 2024, the Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon, expect to soar. Projects, once set in motion, will tend to grow on their own. For this reason, you need to make decisions carefully and plan your actions with confidence and certainty.

The colors of this year will be painted in large strokes. It’s up to you to fill in the details.

Moni’s Analysis of 2024, the Year of the Wood Dragon

While the year of the Rabbit was full of investigations — going down the rabbit hole — this year we will finally see consequences as the result of these investigations.

Frivolous investigations will lose wind and be dropped. Real investigations, with plenty of evidence to back them up, will finally see the light and become available to the general public.

Originally, big consequences will be proposed for those found guilty, but those consequences will be negotiated down. This will disappoint those who have been waiting to relish in the punishment of others. The Dragon is interested in justice, but not in causing pain.

If you choose it, this can be a year to easily move on from past grudges.

Strategies for 2024 the Year of the Wood Dragon

Those who will do best this year will be the people who are confident and daring, especially those who have a clear understanding of their own strengths and are able to recognize where and when they need help.

There will be a natural tendency to want to do things alone and have too much confidence in your own abilities, but it will be better to form teams and make strategic alliances.

This is a Wood Year, and the internal element of the Dragon is Earth.

Wood drains Earth, so the qualities of the Dragon will be reduced.

The Dragon thrives on inspiration and likes to start projects, but this is a year when resources can be exhausted too quickly if you don’t also pay attention to the small details. It’s better to focus on fewer projects than to spread yourself too thin.

Make sure that all your new ventures are properly backed up by funding and are rooted in reality.

This is also a time to re-evaluate your priorities, to decide what to let go of and what to keep in your life, in terms of relationships and also business.

No matter how promising things may seem, do not act on faith. Dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s before embarking on new ventures.

Pay attention to your intuition this year. The Dragon is an emissary of Heaven.

A Yang Year

This is a Yang Year, a year for active energy.

A good year to…

  • Shake the past.
  • Start new endeavors.
  • Reimagine ongoing projects.

The Animals, Sign by Sign, and What to Expect in 2024, the Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon

Rat

Chinese Year of the Rat 2020

Many people in the West get disheartened to learn their Chinese Horoscope animal sign is a Rat, but in the East the Rat is not regarded as an animal to despise or a pest. It is considered an extremely intelligent and resourceful animal.

People with this sign tend to be very smart and cunning. They tend to do well with money and are generally good in business. They do have to watch out for a tendency to do hidden things instead of operating in the open, and the temptation of taking advantage of others who are not as bright.

The Rat is too small to be considered a worthy prey for the Tiger, so people with the sign of the Rat can stay under the radar this year.

Their strengths are in life areas 1 (Career, Life Mission and Individuality) because they are very focused on money making and 4 (Wealth, Prosperity and Self Worth) because they like to accumulate.

They struggle with life areas 2 (Marriage, Relationships and Partnerships) because of their tendency to be selfish and 6 (Helpful People, Spiritual Life and Travel) because they can get too confident in their own abilities or become cynical about life.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

This year, you won’t be bored. There will be enough simulation and opportunity for adventure to keep you interested and busy. However, don’t just think about what’s in it for you in the present, and also plan for the future.

A good goal for you this year

This year, find your place in the world. You often hide your talents, preferring to be the one that moves the strings behind the curtains. If you let yourself be seen a little more, and make your talents known; there may be more opportunities for you this year.

Ox

The Ox is a very reliable animal, considered a work partner in ancient China.

People born in the Ox year tend to be very hard workers and dependable. They love to learn and are constantly studying, but are not known by their speed. They take their time and make sure that they really learn things correctly. Oxen avoid risk, a tendency that can hold them back and create boredom.

Oxen do well in life areas 2 (Marriage Relationship and Partnerships) because it is innate to them to cooperate and 6 (Helpful People, Spiritual Life and Travel) because they are people of strong faith and natural team players.

Oxen struggle with life area 1 (Career, Life Mission and Individuality), because they are not individualistic in nature, and not particularly interested in money. They have a hard time with life area 7 (Children, Creativity and Fun) because they see life more as work than play. They also struggle with life area 5 (Center of Good Fortune and Gratitude) because they believe that all fortune should come from hard work and they don’t believe in windfalls.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

You thrive on routines and rituals and this is a year where major changes are possible. If you think of changes, not as nuisances, but rather as leaps into new levels, it will be easier to navigate the year.

A good goal for you this year

Take some time to look into the future and decide how the different aspects of your life could be improved. Sometimes you get too focused on only one or two life areas, and tend to neglect the others. If you work on making small improvements in all the areas of your life, your overall level of happiness and wellbeing will increase.

Go here to get a Feng Shui cure for your sign.

Tiger

Tigers are very powerful animals, both feared and admired. In Feng Shui the tiger represents the power of the Earth plane of existence, the instinctive part of the human soul.

People born in Tiger years love rank and are big supporters of authority, policy and rules… for other people. They easily break the rules themselves and feel entitled to do so. They are fiercely independent, decisive, and quick to take action. They favor stimulation over intellectual pursuits, so they are good students of exciting subjects, but not of those that bore them. Tigers need to control their tendency to be impulsive and make harsh judgments. If you were born in a Tiger year, refrain from slashing out at your loved ones when you feel unhappy.

Tigers do great in the life areas associated with metal. Life area 6 (Helpful People, Spiritual Life and Travel) because they love to enforce rituals and laws. Life area 7 (Children, Creativity and Fun) because they like excitement.

Tigers struggle with life area 3 (Health, Family and Community) because they value their privacy and freedom. They also have a hard time with life area 8 (Wisdom, Self-Knowledge and Rest) because it requires stillness and contemplation.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

You will welcome the expansive and strong energy of this year, after feeling somewhat stifled last year. Be careful with overspending and overexerting your energy. Remember that even great projects that are well planned can face obstacles from time to time. Do not get discouraged if this happens. Learn to see problems as games or puzzles that can be fun to solve.

A good goal for you this year

You tend to be impulsive, trusting that everything will turn out OK in the end. But this is a year in which fast and auspicious beginnings can get stuck later on. Meditate or consult the I-Ching before making major decisions.

Rabbit

Chinese Year of the Water Rabbit 2023

The Rabbit is a very springy, active animal, who likes to be on the move. It is also very vulnerable.

People born in Rabbit years like to move around and not be still for long. They can have a kind of nervous energy that makes them appear jumpy. At the root of this, is the desire to be and feel safe. Rabbits can be very helpful and congenial when they feel safe, but when they feel threatened they can be underhanded or passive aggressive. This is because they don’t feel that they can win a fair fight. Rabbits both love to associate with, and resent, people who they perceive as stronger than them. If you were born in a Rabbit year you need to focus on your strengths rather than you weaknesses. Rabbits do best when in a group of similar people, who they perceive as equals. They can be great team players. They benefit from socializing in safe, known environments, but they also need their alone time.

Rabbits do well in life area 4 (Wealth, Prosperity and Self-Worth), mostly as a result of time and persistence rather than risk and cunning.

Rabbits see life area 9 (Fame, Reputation and Social Life) as a challenge because they have a hard time understanding rank or social class/standing. They can struggle with life area 2 (Marriage, Relationships and Partnerships) because they tend to lean a bit too much on their partners and expect protection from them, often feeling resentful if the partner fails to provide comfort.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

The dynamic energy of this year will be in conflict with your desire for orderliness and peace. This may not be the best year for you to be public, but rather a year to work in the background toward your goals. Take care of the small details and the big plans will fall into place.

A good goal for you this year

Temper your tendency to people-please. All healthy relationships are built by having uncomfortable conversations when they are necessary. If you are willing to have these conversations, you can avoid conflict without compromising your values and beliefs.

Go here to get a Feng Shui cure for your sign.

Dragon

Dragons are powerful, benevolent and beautiful. Their only problem is that they’re not real.

People born in Dragon years tend to be considered lucky all around. Things come easy to them. They are quick to learn and quick to execute, and very efficient. They like the unusual and they like to impress. Dragons are very stylish and usually turn heads when they arrive at any place. They love the attention. They are very generous with their money, time and effort, as long as it’s fun.

Dragons have to watch out for a tendency to want to only follow their own ideas and not accept advice from others. They also need to make sure that their need for novelty and excitement is tempered with good habits and routines to keep them well and healthy.

Dragons tend to do well in all life areas, but their luck can also turn quickly if they have not set good foundations for their projects and relationships. For example, they may start a business and do great, then lose it all overnight because of some legal detail. Therefore, Dragons do well to associate with people who are honest and have attention to detail.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

It is a misconception that when the year matches your own animal sign, that is a year that you can get away with anything.

In the year of the Dragon, Dragons will see both their strengths and weaknesses activated. This makes you vulnerable. You may get too confident and show all your cards.

This year, past issues may be reactivated, for you to look at, and heal at a different level.

Temper your great self confidence with humility and compassion, so that your benevolence shines through.

A good goal for you this year

Listen to the ideas and the opinions of others. Too often you rely only on your own vision of things, because you are brilliant, but if you want to have successful personal and business relationships, you need to take other points of view into account.

Snake

In the West, we see the Snake as a symbol of evil, but in most cultures around the world the Snake is seen as a symbol for fertility and for spiritual awakening. In fact, experts believe that the Snake was chosen as the symbol of evil in the Bible because it was so hard to eradicate the practice of making offerings to the Snake goddess for fertility.

People born in Snake years are believed to be wise, always seeking deeper knowledge and willing to put the time and effort required for research. They’re not always as thorough in the application of their knowledge and can be reckless in their pursuit of it. For example, they may start practicing a healing art before they are fully trained or they might apply a technique that they’re not fully sure how it’ll turn out – just for the sake of finding out. Socially, they can be a lot of fun to be around, and once they commit, they can be great partners for life.

Snakes like to seek pleasure and amusement and need to watch for a tendency to get lost in the pursuit of pleasure.

Snakes do fantastic in life area 1 (Career, Life Mission and Individuality) unless they give in to bad habits/addictions. For the same reason they do well in life area 3 (Health, Family and Community) only if they create a good routine with healthy habits, especially if it’s associated to an ancient school of knowledge, which they very much appreciate (Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation). Snakes do great with life area 5 (Center of Good Fortune and Gratitude) because they believe they are the natural recipients for windfalls and are always on the look out for them. Also because they instinctively know how to tap into the Tao.

Snakes struggle with life area 4 (Wealth, Prosperity and Self Worth) because they lack the accumulation instinct of the Rat or the Rabbit, trusting that they will always be able to generate income, and failing to plan for the future. Snakes may have a bit of a hard time with life area 9 (Fame, Reputation and Social Life) because they’d rather stay in the lab than attend a party. They prefer small gatherings, where deep conversations can happen, to large, more superficial events. They detest small talk.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

The Dragon and the Snake have some similarities, but the Snake tends to be private, while the Dragon tends to be extra. The overactive energy of this year may get in the way of your enjoyment of comforts, luxury, and peace. Remember to set aside time for you to just be you. Also set time aside to study those topics that you are passionate about but have been delaying studying.

A good goal for you this year

Create an oasis for your life, by surrounding yourself with good art and beautiful objects. You know that you are never satisfied when you go for savings rather than quality. This is a good year to upgrade material objects that you have been wanting to upgrade.

Go here to get a Feng Shui cure for your sign.

Horse

Horses are energetic and strong. They can keep going for long periods of time and they love their freedom, but once domesticated they become obedient.

People born in Horse years tend to be very active. They love sports, running –– when they go up and down the stairs they actually sound like horses. They are hard workers and measure their own value on their achievements. They don’t rest on their past glories, they want new ones.

Horses like to run with a herd or a band and they love the sense of adventure. Oftentimes they get carried away with the excitement and don’t realize the cost that will be required of their quests. Then they wonder how they got into a mess. It helps horses to stop and think before taking action.

Horses need to watch out for their tendency to join cults or blindly following a leader. The attraction of joining a “group with a mission” is great, but can lead to giving away their power to another, who might not have their best interest at heart.

Horses, once they settle, value family life dearly. Horses can be the best of parents or the worst of parents, in the name of family values.

Horses have the potential to do great or terrible with life area 3 (Health, Family and Community) depending on whether they nurture their strong constitution, or abuse it. They have an easy time with life area 1 (Career, Life Mission and Individuality) because of their combination of stamina and focus.

Horses can struggle with life area 2 (Marriage, Relationships and Partnerships) because they can be insensitive to other people’s needs, and brutal in the expression of their opinions. They can have a hard time also with the life area that is at the other side of 2 –– life area 8 (Wisdom, Self-Knowledge and Rest) because they don’t like to stay still, and they lack patience.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

The energy of this year will feel like the wind beneath your wings. Anything will seem possible. Take advantage of the forward moving momentum, but also activate your peripheral vision so you can have a good awareness of your surroundings. You like to move fast, and this year will move fast too. You can handle it. However, watch your temper. Find ways to release anger so it doesn’t hurt you and it doesn’t hurt others.

A good goal for you this year

You tend to work a lot and exhaust your energy. That is fine, as long as you are also actively doing things to replenish your energy. Make sure you get enough sleep, fresh air, sunshine and time to engage in non-productive activities. These practices will help you be more effective when it’s time to work.

Go here to get a Feng Shui cure for your sign.

Goat

Goats move in herds in plains but they also feel comfortable climbing great heights on their own.

People born in the year of the Goat tend to be very artistic and creative, but they’re not the most practical people. They value beauty and meaning, not so much usefulness. Goats need to watch out for excessive spending to make the home look pretty or to feed their creative projects and endeavors.

Goats are great at making a house into a home. They tend to be great cooks and put great care and effort in creating beautiful places where people can feel good. A Goat is a great house guest if they don’t stay too long. Your home will look and feel better after a goat has visited.

Because Goats don’t want to be bothered with the practical aspects of surviving, they do best when they partner with a spouse that is good at day-to-day living, or when they join a team with an efficient leader. Boredom is the Goat’s enemy. Goats need to always look for exciting projects to work on.

Goats do best with life area 5 (Center of Good Fortune and Gratitude) as they believe Heaven’s job is to take care of them. In exchange, they are very faithful to Heaven, in delivering works of art (inspired by Heaven). Goats tend to neglect life area 4 (Wealth, Prosperity and Self-Worth) because they believe someone or something will always be there to take care of them. Goats need to be careful with life area 2 (Marriage, Relationships and Partnerships) because of their tendency to see the “grass greener on the other side.”

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

This year, your creativity will be unleashed — as if it wasn’t already. You will come up with lots of great ideas. The challenge will be sorting the good ideas from the bad, because there’s only so much you can get done in a year. Ending up with lots of unfinished work or projects is no fun. Choose wisely the number of creative projects you can start and finish this year.

A good goal for you this year

Stop giving too much importance to the opinions of others. Even if most people like you or your work, there will always be someone who disagrees with you. You can’t please everyone, and you shouldn’t be trying to. If you let yourself be yourself, you create better art and/or have better business ideas.

Go here to get a Feng Shui cure for your sign.

Monkey

Monkeys are sociable, active and boisterous, but also very capable and determined.

People born in the year of the Monkey like to travel in troops and love to engage in all sorts of games. They try to design their lives so they feel like constant parties. They’re energetic, so they can be great workers when managed properly and told how to occupy every moment of their day. If left to their own devices, they tend to waste time and opportunities for the sake of a good time. This makes it hard for Monkeys to adjust to management positions. Monkeys may often feel that their talents are not properly appreciated or that they are passed up for promotions they feel are due.

They are intelligent, and that intelligence needs to be challenged with constant learning and clear goals.

Monkeys do great in life area 9 (Fame, Reputation and Social Life) because they are gregarious in nature and love to party. They excel in life area 7 (Children, Creativity and Fun) because they love to play games and have fun. They can be the life of the party.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that Monkeys struggle with life area 8 (Wisdom, Self-Knowledge and Calm) more than any other life area, because of their restless nature. Another reason is that Monkeys tend to define themselves by the groups they join. For this same reason, even though Monkeys are ambitious, it can be hard to advance in life area 1 (Career, Life Mission and Individuality).

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

The energy of this year will mesh well with your natural energy. This is a good year to be curious and explore new ventures or revamp old projects. Your ability to excite people makes you a good leader and on a year like this it is easier for your talents to be recognized.

A good goal for you this year

Before you do something, consider how your actions can affect others. If you take the needs and wants of others into account, you will get farther, because you won’t have to do things alone. Practice compassion so that as you advance on your path you don’t burn bridges or leave people behind that later on you would want back in your life.

Rooster

There can only be one Rooster in the coop. Roosters like to call attention to themselves. They are very tuned to the cycles of nature.

A person born in the year of the Rooster probably loves being the center of attention, but they love to be admired at a distance. They are not the warmest or friendliest of the signs but they can be very sociable in environments that are not overly competitive, because Roosters themselves are very competitive. Roosters are very stylish and fashion-conscious, and they love luxury. Roosters need to be careful with spending. They tend to over-spend, but don’t necessarily waste money –– they buy good stuff. If you were born in the year of the Rooster watch out for a tendency to be overly critical of others. Cultivate empathy and compassion so you can have better relationships.

Roosters are smart and love to learn. They thrive when their best qualities are recognized and encouraged. They are very sensitive to criticism.

Roosters tend to do well in life area 4 (Wealth, Prosperity and Self-Worth) because they are clever investors. This sometimes makes them temporarily asset-rich but cash-poor. Money comes easily to Roosters and that is part of life area 1 (Career, Life Mission and Individuality) because Roosters can be very focused on what they want from an early age.

Roosters may find bumps in life area 2 (Marriage, Relationships and Partnerships) because their focus tends to be on themselves. Life area 7 (Children, Creativity and Fun) can also be a challenge because fun times can get in the way of the Rooster’s goals and so Roosters may either overindulge in entertainment or deprive themselves of it. They need to find balance between work and play.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

The year of the Dragon provides a good stage for the performance needs of the Rooster. Now is the time to figure out how you want to spend, not just this year, but the next few years at least. This is a good year to cement your self esteem and assertiveness. Let people know who you are and what you like and don’t like, without fear of criticism. However, don’t show all your cards in personal or business relationships. Practice diplomacy.

A good goal for you this year

Choose wisely when to argue or debate a point. Don’t exhaust your energy discussing things that are not truly important or significant to you, just to win an argument. Channel your mind and your strength to work on projects that really matter to you.

Go here to get a Feng Shui cure for your sign.

Dog

Long regarded as humankind’s best friend, dogs are very loyal, generous and loving.

People born in the year of the Dog are sociable and thrive in groups of like-minded people. They like familiarity and daily routines — they seek comfort. They are willing to sacrifice for the good of the family. Dogs are very friendly and make friends easily wherever they go. They have a strong sense of hierarchy and they can be deferential to those they perceive as being above them and haughty with those they see as being beneath them. Dogs attach themselves to strong leaders or become leaders themselves.

Dogs tend to thrive in life area 3 (Health, Family and Community) as they see themselves always as part of a group. They do well in life area 6 (Helpful People, Spiritual Life and Travel) because they are good team players. They only ask that the job descriptions be clear and that everyone do their part.

Dogs struggle with life area 4 (Wealth, Prosperity and Self Worth) and with life area 1 (Career, Life Mission and Individuality) because of their sense of generosity (giving away too much) and because they identify with the pack, instead of seeing themselves as individuals.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

The energy and wants of the Dragon are contrary to your own tendencies and likes. It may be easy to get frustrated this year because people around you don’t rally up around the causes that you value and support. You may feel that people are too shallow and showy, and lack substance. Remember that you can create your own microcosm of good friends and loved ones to still enjoy many happy times this year, doing the kinds of activities that you appreciate the most.

A good goal for you this year

This is a good year for you to focus on growing wealth, and curb excessive generosity. Sometimes, you are too generous and end up helping people who would do better if they helped themselves or solved their problems by themselves. Of course, do help the people who really need it and whom you are able to provide assistance to, but don’t avoid your own issues by getting too involved in the problems of others. Remember to save and invest a portion of your income for later in life.

Pig

Pigs are animals known for overeating, but this is an association made from domesticated pigs, rather than wild pigs. We perceive them as slow and mild, but they can also be surprisingly fast and ferocious. In East Asia Pigs are symbols of wealth.

People born in the year of the Pig are lovers of pleasure and the comforts of life. Drawn to the mundane rather than the spiritual. They are generous and love to socialize. They are indulgent and forgiving with their loved ones and hope that the same kindness will be shown to them when they make mistakes. They lack introspection. Other people tend to feel comfortable with Pigs. Pigs make all their friends feel understood and supported, even when they disagree. They can be good workers, but are driven more by the desire for comfort than by ambition or the desire for achievement.

Pigs need to watch out for a tendency to avoid confrontation and to settle for less than they deserve, in order to not rock the boat.

Pigs do well in life area 2 (Marriage, Relationships, and Partnerships) because they are very accepting of others and have a very loving nature. They do well in life area 5 (Center of Good Fortune and Gratitude) because they are usually content with their lot, and experience the gratitude of others for the things they have done for them.

Pigs are challenged in life area 3 (Health, Family and Community) because it’s hard for them to establish healthy habits and routines, and they tend to indulge in foods that are not good for them. Pigs have to make an effort to elevate themselves to spiritual experiences, having to do with life area 6 (Helpful People, Spiritual Life and Travel) because they seldom question the beliefs they were raised with, and thus limit their spiritual evolution.

Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024, for You

What you make of this year is up to you. You can have lots of good times and success in business if you manage your time and energy well, or you can just spend your time partying and overindulging and not accomplish anything that matters. You can ride the Dragon or get trampled by the Dragon. It’s all down to your choices and self-management. If you take care of your body with enough sleep, good healthy food, and relaxation, you will have the energy you need for both productivity and good times.

A good goal for you this year:

Be more alert. Sometimes, in your desire to avoid conflict, you ignore the red flags that would alert you to ill intentions from others. You need to be more discerning in your relationships, both personal and in business.

Do you know your Chinese Horoscope animal sign? Chinese Year of the Wood Dragon 2024

The Chinese Year of the Dragon 2024 doesn’t start on January 1st. The beginning of the Chinese Year actually changes from year to year, sometimes in January and sometimes in February. See the list below to find your year of birth. Some of the years are placed on the left side (up to 1983) and some on the right (after 1984). If you were born in January or February, make sure you choose the right Chinese year by checking the start of the Chinese year on the year you were born.

Keep in mind that your animal sign for the year is your Outer Sign (similar to the Sun sign in Zodiacal Astrology), or public sign, but there are also Inner Signs (what only those close to you know about you) and Secret or Private Signs (your ascendant sign).

Everything You Believe to Be True About Life is Expressed in Your Home

You affect your home and your home, in turn, has an effect on you. You establish a close relationship with your place.

This relationship may be positive or negative, but it’s never neutral.

Feng Shui – applied the right way – gives you control over what your home tells you, and whether your home is your supportive partner or a constant drain.

Let the home take care of you by applying the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System with Moni.

  4. Yin Fire, Goat. Best to you Moni ????

  5. I turned out to be a yang metal horse but it doesn’t describe me AT ALL, I’m literally the opposite of the description. Why is this?

    • Georgie, it could be that your other signs overpower the horse. The year sign is your public sign, but there’s also an internal sign (by the month), and a secret sign (ascendant). In Zodiacal astrology, sometimes the ascendant sign is more visible than the sun sign. It can happen with the Chinese horoscope too.

  6. I’m a Yin Fire Goat too Moni ????(though I’d prefer to be called Sheep???? lol) and today is my birthday????

    • Happy Birthday, Angela! Some system call it sheep, others ram and others goat. I went with the one I thought I could make the cutest illustration!

  7. Yin Metal, Ox

  8. Yang, Earth, Dog

  9. Yang Fire Dragon

  10. My older son and I are both year of the Dog! Should I get two dog magnets or just one? 🙂
