Here’s Your Chinese Zodiac Predictions for Year of the Dragon 2024

Heres Your Chinese Zodiac Predictions for Year of the Dragon 2024

The Chinese Zodiac astrological system holds tremendous sway over cultures worldwide, allowing many to embrace the form, fusing it with their respective cultural beliefs and incorporating it into their daily lives. The allure of its mystique and symbolism has enchanted many, for good reason, as it can be used as a powerful tool for self-discovery and personal growth.

Following a 12-year cycle, the Chinese zodiac is split into a list of twelve animals that each represent a year in the series. The tradition stems from an ancient Chinese myth that determined the order of the animals with a big race, cementing each creature’s position on the calendar on a rotating basis.

The Year of the Wood Dragon makes its grand entrance on Feb. 10, 2024 (first day of Chinese New Year) and passes the torch to the Snake on Jan. 28, 2025 (Chinese New Year's Eve). If you were born in 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, or 1952, you are one of the lucky ones to call the only mythical creature of the twelve animals your zodiac companion! Dragons are known for their natural courage, intelligence, and tenacity, always ready to conquer the world with their enthusiasm and confidence.

According to the Chinese horoscope, the stars shine brightest upon Monkeys, Roosters, and Pigs in 2024. Tigers, Rabbits, Snakes, Monkeys, Roosters, and Dogs are also in luck's favour this year. However, if you were born in the Year of the Rat, Ox, Dragon, Horse, Goat, or Dog, it's time to buckle up and brace yourself for a year that might demand extra effort to conquer your goals.

Read on for a more detailed look at what the Year of the Wood Dragon has in store for you throughout 2024!

Dragon: Born in the years 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024


In Chinese culture, the Dragon reigns supreme, a symbol of unparalleled talent and excellence. It embodies power, nobility, honour, luck, and success. Brace yourself for a year of thrilling opportunities, transformative changes, but also challenges.

Dragons are advised to brace themselves for a somewhat tumultuous year ahead as they offend two different tai sui this year. The presence of these two cursed stars will have an impact on their health and increase the likelihood of accidents, so be sure to err on the side of caution and look both sides when you’re crossing the road.

Navigating through the year successfully will require determination and a keen sense of timing, allowing Dragons to make progress, achieve personal growth, and benefit from the support of two auspicious stars. Stay vigilant, Dragons!

Snake: Born in the years 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013


The year ahead holds great promise for Snakes, particularly in the areas of learning and further education. It’s a perfect time to pursue courses or hobbies you have always been interested in but never took the leap to start. Well, now's your time to strike while the iron is hot!

Additionally, their positive energy will attract supportive and trustworthy individuals who will stand by them and assist them in their endeavours. In matters of love, this is a significant year for single Snakes as they have a high chance of meeting a romantic interest. Don’t take things for granted this year and watch the new opportunities stack on.

Horse: Born in the years 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014


The upcoming year holds great potential for Horses to broaden their horizons and seek new avenues for personal growth. While lucky stars will assist in overcoming obstacles, there are also cursed stars that indicate a higher risk of accidents – so be sure to watch where you step in moments of distraction.

Maintaining focus on goals and putting in dedicated effort is essential. Horses will experience a surge in creativity, which might make this year seem like it’s flying by a lot faster than previous years, so it’s important to slow down, and reach out for support when you need it.

Sheep: Born in the years 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015


Your kindness and compassion have not gone unnoticed! After a rough 2023, you will finally be able to reap what you sowed in generosity and empathy – paving the way for a joyful inner life. Expect your network to expand as new opportunities arise, compensating for any setbacks experienced in 2023.

Practice some patience and take the time to carefully consider decisions and seek advice when necessary. Failure to do so may result in the dissipation of your good fortune, stay true to yourself and look forward to stepping out a little more this year.

Monkey: Born in the years 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016


In 2024, your luck rests in your own skilful hands, led by your problem-solving nature. Strategic thinking and establishing clear personal boundaries will be absolutely crucial to your success and well-being, allowing you to sift through the sea of opinions that await.

For those born under the sign of the Monkey, 2024 may signify a transformative and pivotal year, potentially involving significant life changes such as relocations. Your decisions during this time will shape the next chapter of your life, so trust your heart and remember, no monkey business!

Rooster: Born in the years 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017


In the year ahead, Roosters find themselves attracting a network of supportive individuals and abundant opportunities – so don't take that for granted! Your fortunate stars will aid you in overcoming any obstacles you might face in the upcoming year, sending you support in the form of trusted loved ones.

There may be a small bump in the road regarding your finances this year, and it is advised to make a significant purchase like a new laptop or car to experience the ‘financial loss’ on your own terms and offset bad impulsive investments. The romance stars glean upon you, but keep in mind that relationships can come quickly and go just as quickly.

Dog: Born in the years 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018


While Dogs are known to be man’s best friend, your zodiac animal poses a karmic nemesis to the titular Dragon this year. It’s nothing personal, so take these curveballs as you would any other obstacle. Into the thick of it, the repeated challenges may begin to wear your patience and stamina down, so be ready to take a breather and treat yourself with some well deserved rest with your support network when needed. Another aspect to keep an eye on are your savings. It’s always good to be prudeent with your finances, but this year, being prepared may come in particularly handy.

Pig: Born in the years 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1994, 2007, 2019


Options are a key word for those born in the year of the Pig this 2024. While the past few years may have posed some significant ups and downs, there comes a refresh in energy that opens up new doors in multiple areas of your life. While the wealth of choice may present a big rush of excitement, do be careful in weighing all the possible compromises required of a situation before going full charge ahead.

Regardless, luck is in the stars for you this year in terms of opening you up to chances to enhance your prosperity, new faces and deeper connections in your social life, as well as upgrades your romantic status on the horizon.

Rat: Born in the years 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020


For the first sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle, the year of the Wood Dragon spells out great opportunities for personal growth, as well as pathways to making more money. The two aspects build upon each other, as the wealth you gain will greatly benefit your pursuit of your dreams and greater future plans. Though do be warned that time management is key, as the greater freedom in making choices also requires greater work to maintain.

Be mindful to avoid any ‘get-rich-quick' schemes, and instead turn your attention towards prospects that show stable and long-term gains, be it a side hustle or getting yourself acquainted with and comfortable delivering a greater level of responsibility in your current role.

Ox: Born in the years 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021


Though there are plentiful opportunities for you to step up to the next level of success in your career, be careful to keep an eye out on any miscommunications or potential friction with your coworkers and collaborators. At the end of the day, it’s about keeping balance between your ‘work’ life, and your personal life. Spread your energy evenly, and don’t take things to heart when it can simply be a matter of business.

On the flip side, spending a little more time with family and close friends will benefit you greatly both in terms of your spiritual wellbeing and in your broader opportunities. While negotiating or sharing your ideas, take inspiration from the hard work you have put in so far, and don’t forget to give yourself a pat on the back for the strides you have already made.

Tiger: Born in the years 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022


Travelling is on the cards for you this year, you fine felines! While this could take the form of vacationing, business trips, or even a big relocation, the steady commotion of movement spells both excitement and potential obstacles. To make sure you are well-equipped to face roadblocks (both metaphorical and maybe even physical) along the way, take good care of your health and invest time in replenishing your energy.

Managing your stress and time is key in preventing any feelings of being overwhelmed, and advice comes easy from others who have gone through the same challenges and have come out the other side stronger, so don’t be afraid to lean on trusted friends and mentors for support.

Rabbit: Born in the years 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023


While you may have enjoyed some time in the limelight in 2023 as the cuddly zodiac ambassador of the previous lunar year cycle, you may be entering 2024 feeling displaced and with a cloudy sense of direction. Still, life goes on, and you may be feeling particularly confused or fatigued when it comes to gathering enough clarity and information to make major decisions – remain calm.

While there may be external voices and pressures that push you to give into impulsivity, filtering through the noise and keeping a reminder of your long term goals and dreams will help you stick to your plan.
