Year of the Dragon — What’s in store for each zodiac


Every year the International Institute of Tao Studies in Kuala Lumpur holds a talk on what Chinese New Year brings, and how to turn on the auspicious and prosperous flow of qi and to manage the inauspicious energies that affect the Tao way.

In general, the Year of the Dragon is a good year for the Goat, Ox, Tiger and Snake and a challenging one for Monkey, Dog, Rabbit and Horse.  Regardless, it is highly recommended to at least carry the following:

  • The Tai Sui card for the year 2024 to manage the conflict or gather support from the 2024 Tai Sui.
  • The Guiding Angel cards to attract guiding angel luck to smoothen one’s path; and
  • The Apparent Position and Hidden Prosperity cards to enhance one’s career, position and prosperity luck in 2024.
