Animal Sign: Rat 子 🐁
Birth Years: 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960
Outlook for 2024: With Golden Chest being a reputable star that normally brings in additional bonuses and income, you will enjoy a year of abundance in terms of money luck and possibly some tangible good deals. People who plan to start a side gig or even a new business should grab this opportune time to have a good head start. General star will do its best to increase your chance of having a promotion. Bosses will have big plans for you and even load you with new assignments to test your capability. As long as you are willing to take on the challenges positively, Tai Ji Nobleman star is certainly going to give you the required blessings. The presence of the White Tiger star usually implies traffic accident, injury or surgery. So, do be careful if you are frequently on the road or if you are working in a more hazardous environment. Blood donation, blood test or extraction of wisdom tooth can mitigate the risk.
Auspicious Stars for 2024: Golden Chest, General Star, Tai Ji Nobleman
Inauspicious Stars for 2024: White Tiger, Bath star
Animal Sign: Ox 丑 🐂
Birth Years: 2021, 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961
Outlook for 2024: The congregation of so many high-grade lucky stars like Heavenly Nobleman, Fortune Virtue, Heaven Virtue and Fortune star will bring you superb career luck, exam luck, business luck, money luck and strong support from good Samaritans. Even if you are facing many uphill tasks and feeling very down with a lot of uncertainties coming from school, work and family, these “white knight stars” will help to alleviate the problematic situation in 2024. In addition, both Saddle and Jade Hall stars will bring you many good tidings and rewards for your hard work. While you are enjoying your success, do be careful of what you comment online and offline as Curl Tongue can steer you towards disputes, gossips, and even quarrels in office. Lonesome star occasionally disturbs your mood and peace of mind. Pay immediate attention to your elderly parents at home whenever they are not well because Funeral Clothes suggests they are susceptible to severe illnesses – especially if they sleep at the West or Southeast sector of the house.
Auspicious Stars for 2024: Heavenly Nobleman, Fortune Virtue, Heaven Virtue, Fortune Star, Saddle,
Inauspicious Stars for 2024: Lonesome, Curl Tongue, Funeral Clothes
Animal Sign: Tiger 寅 🐅
Birth Years: 2022，2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950
Outlook for 2024: A year filled with movement and changes like moving house, office, department, business trips and even overseas job posting. Quite a busy year for you thanks to the Sky Horse which is a star of constant activity. Any changes that come along this year is usually beneficial for your job prospect, personal development and of course your own pocket since Year Wealth is in your zodiac. Nevertheless, if you are always traveling, do insure yourself adequately as the chances of getting into a little misfortune or inconvenience is there due to the presence of negative stars like Sky Cry and Hanging Guest. In case you would like to go for any form of aesthetic or medical procedure that could potentially leave you with ugly scars, I would suggest that you put on hold till the following year – unless you seek advice for an auspicious time in accordance to the Chinese Almanac to go for the operation. This is attributed to the presence of Sky Dog, which is a malefic star that is linked to scars, birth marks and skin pigmentation.
Auspicious Stars for 2024: Sky Horse, Year Wealth
Inauspicious Stars for 2024: Sky Cry, Hanging Guest, Sky Dog
Animal Sign: Rabbit 卯 🐇
Birth Years: 2023，2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951
Outlook for 2024: With no benefic stars that come to your zodiac, 2024 energy may be deemed a little bit rough for you. While it is not all gloom and doom, you need to be more independent, more diligent and more vigilant so that you do not make silly mistakes at work or in your personal life. You need to plan wisely before embarking on any new endeavour – may it be a new project, a new business opportunity or a partnership. It is advisable that you do not quit without a job even the stress is unbearable at your work place. The presence of the 6-Misfortune star signals more difficult times ahead. In terms of your well-being, the accident-and-disease-prone Goat Blade and Illness stars suggest that you take extra care of your health and safety. More so if you need to visit cities which are affected by epidemic, floods and riots. It is imperative that you stay away from crowded places because Decline God, which affects one’s immune system, can subject you to high risk of infection.
Auspicious Stars for 2024: Nil
Inauspicious Stars for 2024: 6-Misfortune, Goat Blade, Illness star, Decline God
Animal Sign: Dragon 辰 🐉
Birth Years: 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952
Outlook for 2024: The dragon zodiac offends the Tai Sui in 2024 and usually one will experience emotional upheavals and unsettled feelings in most part of the year. It is advisable that you do not rush into making any important decision including marriage and investment. Of course, you can always go to the temple to pray and seek blessings from the deities. Health is one key area that you need to pay more attention to since Sword Edge and Lying Corpse stars can cause a person to be cut by sharp object or met with an injury during the course of work. For ladies who are pregnant, this could imply going through an emergency c-section birth. For those who work in high-risk environment such as ship building yard, construction site and even in the kitchen, do stay alert when you are carrying out your daily tasks. On a positive note, the combination of Talent star and Golden Cart will greatly benefit those who are carving a career in the education and research sectors, advertising, fine art and creative industries. School students can also pray to Confucius for good luck to do well in their studies and examinations.
Auspicious Stars for 2024: Talent star, Golden Cart
Inauspicious Stars for 2024: Tai Sui, Lying Corpse, Sword Edge
Animal Sign: Snake 巳 🐍
Birth Years: 2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965, 1953
Outlook for 2024: Vibrant energies will be seen surrounding the men who belong to the snake zodiac, giving them an exuberant year to enjoy a rise in social status and ranking at work for the Sun and Heaven Doctor have arrived at the doorstep. This excitement is not limited to the gentlemen as it is also a year that the ladies will also receive a lot of recognition and positive limelight. People in senior corporate positions, politics and even showbiz will experience breakthroughs in their endeavors. For those who are seeking to upgrade their skills or further their education, the presence of Academic star will aid them to focus well in the studies. For those planning to get wed, Sky Happiness is the perfect recipe for this joyous moment. On the other hand, the undesirable stars like Sky Emptiness, Solitary and Bad Qi will affect those working overseas to be easily distracted or go into a prolonged period of melancholy. Robbery sha implies loss of money which can be caused by lending money to friends, scams or literally getting robbed or pickpocketed. One way to reduce the ill-effect is to either donate some money to charity or lock your money up in time-deposit.
Auspicious Stars for 2024: The Sun, Heaven Doctor, Sky Happiness, Academic star
Inauspicious Stars for 2024: Solitary star, Sky Emptiness, Bad Qi, Robbery Sha
Animal Sign: Horse 午 🐎
Birth Years: 2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954
Outlook for 2024: It is going to be a tug of war between the good and the bad stars with the former having a slight upper hand due to the appearance of danger-relief stars. First, you will need to take precautions against Blood Dagger, Disaster Sha and Floating star, which are going to affect your safety and security in day-to-day operation. In 2024, do avoid swimming in deep pool, deep-sea diving or competitive sea sports. The presence of Funeral Door suggests that you avoid attending funeral wakes or visitation to hospital or even cemetery as it can result in you feeling lethargic and low in luck. The saving grace is beneficial stars like Relief God and Heaven Relief that fly in to your zodiac do help to counteract the risky situation. This is further supported by the benevolent Tai Ji Nobleman. The 8-Seat star usually denotes positive career movement and pay rise while Romance star increases your love luck. However, married personnel will have to be mindful of any temptations since Dividing Edge tend to also attract disputes and scandals.
Auspicious Stars for 2024: Tai Ji Nobleman, 8 Seat, Relief God, Heaven Relief, Romance star

Animal Sign: Goat 未 🐐
Birth Years: 2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967, 1955
Outlook for 2024: It is a blessed year for the females in areas like study, career and business as the Moon is shining at them. This motherly-natured and virtuous star takes great care of the women. For both genders, relationships with family members and friends will also become more cordial and harmonious. The good luck is further enhanced with the presence of Heavenly Nobleman which is a powerful star that blesses one with many opportunities and guardian angels. Therefore, 2024 is a year you should take a bold step to pursue your goals. Having said that, while you are stepping on your accelerator driving towards your goal, do be cautious about the 2 scandalous stars namely, the Hook and Lasso, which can potentially create havocs and cause one to be entangled in messy love affairs involving 3rd party. So, if you are married or in a relationship, please stay clear of unnecessary romance. Else, your partner will take a harsh approach to cut you off totally due to the influence of Sky Killing.

Inauspicious Stars for 2024: The Hook, Lasso, Sky Killing
Animal Sign: Monkey 申 🐒
Birth Years: 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, 1956
Outlook for 2024: Whenever 5 Ghost, Back Stab and Officer Talisman are present in your zodiac, please conduct yourself well in the public and on the social media platforms. When you are driving, do observe the rules and do not attempt to challenge the laws, argue with law enforcers or else you can be easily caught and get punished. At the same time, be mindful of what you say in front of your colleagues because the person you trusted most can turn his or her back against you because of an unintended sentence. Your friend can become your foe. Students will benefit from the 3-Stage since it gives rise to good academic achievement and support from good teachers. In addition, those who are representing the school in sports, games or any form of competitions will also enjoy good luck and receive rewards for their outstanding performance. Those who are looking out for a relationship can consider putting some colourful flowers in the Southwest corner of your room to activate the romance luck.

Animal Sign: Rooster 酉 🐓
Birth Years: 2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969, 1957
Outlook for 2024: The energy of the dragon year and rooster zodiac are in harmony. This implies that you will work in good partnership and develop strong rapport with people around you. You will enjoy good returns on investment because of Heaven Wealth. You exude strong allure which captivates opposite sex. However, you need to stay vigilant because the Peach Blossom star, which effect is compounded by the very sexual Salt Pool, may land you in love trap or messy outcome. Death Talisman can bring down your luck and energy level. This star can also attract arguments in office and minor accidents at home. Small Loss is likely to cause you to misplace your wallet and mobile phone easily. So, guard your precious belongings properly in crowded places. Always be alert when you receive dubious SMS-es or emails to avoid becoming a scam victim. If you are pregnant or planning for a baby in 2024, you must go for regular check-up and avoid strenuous activities for the combination of Passing Cloud and Flying Blade can potentially cause miscarriage or emergency medical situation. Thankfully, benevolent stars like Month Virtue and Earth Relief will watch over you and send you the required aid when in need.

Animal Sign: Dog 戌 🐕
Birth Years: 2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1958
Outlook for 2024: While it may be traditionally perceived as a less optimistic year for zodiac sign to be clashing the Tai Sui, because the dog is in direct confrontation with the energy of the dragon year, there is still a silver lining this time round because of the omnipotent Emperor Seal Nobleman. This is a marvelous star that will lend you a helping hand whenever you are in a trapped situation. Do remember to avoid being a guarantor for loan, going to casino to gamble, investing in high-risk financial products and starting a business as the chance of suffering from failure is very high due to the presence of Big Loss and Shatter. It is advisable to be prudent in your plans. Do not quit your job until you receive a confirmed offer. Hinder Pole implies that for young children below 12 and seniors above age 60 may run the risk of being hospitalized as a result of a sudden event or poor health. On top of this, it is also important to stay away from earthquake-prone cities, ancient buildings and caves so that you do not end up becoming a victim.

Birth Years: 2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959
Outlook for 2024: The presence of top-tier stars like the Emperor star and Dragon Virtue suggests that it is time for you to embark on new business ventures or take a bold step to expand current operation. People in corporate will see a rise in their profile, receive good performance appraisal and recognition from the boss. A very auspicious year in terms of career and remuneration. A wonderful year too for academic pursuit and examination luck because of Academic Hall. On the flip side, the congregation of the malefic stars like Sky Danger, Sudden Failure and Death God usually trigger unexpected underlying health conditions. For those who love to participate in marathon or vigorous sports should know your limit. Quickly take a rest if you start to feel unwell. Do not take things lightly. Always consult your physician when you fall sick. Nuptial Bird symbolizes that 2024 is a timely year to get married. For those who are still unattached, there is also a chance that Cupid, the Roman god of love, will direct his arrow at you.
