Those born in these animal years will fare the best in the Year of the Monkey – the Rabbit, Snake, Rooster and Pig.


The Rat has lots of guiding angels to help him achieve his goals and position. He can depend on people to guide and lead him. He has the courage to do and implement things.  But he may encounter sudden problems. Be careful and don’t break the law, for instance, jumping lights or illegal parking.

But he has the Water Nourishment Star and he will benefit positively from it.



The Ox will be involved in a lot of celebrations. His relationship with people is very good. He has the Moon Virtue Star which will dissolve anything bad. His career and money luck are good. There may be a small loss. There is the Death Mark Star which means something comes to the end of the cycle. It can make bad things end but pray for good things to continue. The Ox has some water content which is good, as this year lacks water.



The Tiger has to cope with a lot of changes this year. The Sui Po Star rises against Tai Sui or the minister in charge of the year. There may be a big loss. Beware of anything sharp. However, there is a good star that will bring about dissolution of problems. Stay still and do not initiate any major changes. There will be opportunities for travel for the Tiger.




Rabbit has the Dragon Virtue Star which will bring good fortune and dissolve anything that’s bad. He has leadership and his career will be good. He can initiate new projects with success, with the Guiding Angel Star helping him. He will enjoy prosperity. However, his relationship with his family and relatives will not be harmonious.



The Dragon has the Hua Gai which is the talent star. He will discover a very special talent this year which he should make use of. He has to be careful of anything sharp and he can be prone to accidents. The Dragon has water content which should render some positive effects.




Snake has the Fortune Virtue Star which will take care of problems. If he has accumulated lots of good deeds in the past, now is the time to reap the benefits. He has prosperity and there will be opportunities to make money. The Snake has to be careful of gossip and back biting. Pay no attention to all this. Just do what is right. Beware of snatch theft.



The Horse faces challenges. He has to be careful with sharp objects as he can be accident prone. He may also encounter emotional hurt. Try not to visit yin places like hospitals, attend funerals or watch any eclipses.

The Monkey has hidden prosperity. He is good in literary and cultural fields. The very clever Monkey will excel in examinations and may get an award. He may have some difficulties but as long as he is firm and focused he will see the year through, with improvement. Don’t go to places with blood, such as wet markets. It would be good for him to fast or be vegetarian for a week.

He will benefit more from female benefactors.
