year of the dragon 2024 chinese zodiac predictions

The Year of the Dragon comes with much anticipation by many who believe the creature brings good luck. As a symbol of power in Chinese culture, we can expect a boom in “dragon babies” this year, and expectations of luck and wealth.

But at the end of the day this all comes down to your own Chinese zodiac and how that interacts with the year, which is that of a Wood Dragon. “The Year of the Wood Dragon can be visualised as a mahjong parlour where competitive gamers gather to show their talents, and strategise to be the ultimate winners to enjoy the bliss of victory,” says Grand Master Tan Khoon Yong from Way Fengshui. “With strong Wood and Earth elements ruled by the Three Jade Star, this year promises abundant opportunities and strong growth. Yet, sudden changes in relationships with others may turn the tide. So, don’t be willful. Learn to play by ear and protect your own interests. Stay prepared for opportunities and make the right decisions.”

Here, courtesy of Grand Master Tan, Master Goh Guan Leong and Master Mark Tan of Way Fengshui, we break down the forecast for each zodiac sign including luck, wealth, career and health so you have an idea of what to expect when the Chinese New Year hits.

Rat (1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020)

In Chinese culture, rats are associated with diligence and thriftiness. That’s why people born in the Year of the Rat are believed to lead a charming life, blessed with wealth and prosperity. If you belong to the Rat zodiac, you are likely to be intelligent and resourceful. Although you can be friendly and charming, you are a sensitive person who values privacy. Sometimes, you may read too much into a situation, making you easily suspicious and critical of others. 

With your ambitious nature and strong adaptability, you can thrive in most situations. You rarely shy away from good opportunities, which you often are able to identify due to your keen observation. On the extreme end of the spectrum, you may find yourself blinded by greed or hatching schemes to achieve your goals. 

Strengths: Resourceful, alert, diligent, quick-witted
Weaknesses: Timid, stubborn, scheming, unpredictable
Most compatible signs: Ox, Dragon, Monkey
Least compatible sign: Horse

2024 Outlook

Wealth ★★★★

There are many money-making opportunities and steady cash flow, which benefits career and business growth. You shall enjoy a stable income as your career luck rises in tandem with your hard work.

You prefer to avoid disputes and arguments, and such thoughtfulness sometimes gives people the wrong impression that you are a pushover. You have an eye for beauty and details, and enjoy the finer things in life. Staying focused and organised are not your strong suits. You dislike changes and can be conservative. When in love, you tend to become very insecure and require much reassurance from your partner.

With your wits and capability, you can thrive well in your career and personal life. Coupled with blessings from the Happiness Star, you will exude greater charisma this year.

Wealth ★★★

Your monthly expenses keep increasing despite your stable income. Money seems to come and go easily, hence you must be thriftier. Otherwise, you may have difficulties in making ends meet and even have to borrow money from others. Learn to manage your finances well. Spending beyond your means will only affect your fortune.

Relationship ★★

Sociable in nature, you tend to thrive in social situations. However, your confidence and optimism may cause others to mistake you as frivolous and untrustworthy. This year, proper communication is key. When interacting with others, especially your elders or superiors, do not jump to conclusions or make empty promises.

Career ★★★

This year, you may face challenges and pressure at work, which demands greater energy and focus than before. Adjust your mindset at the start of the year and stay prepared before taking action. The presence of the Lawsuit Star calls for extra care when handling contracts and documents. Otherwise, there will be dire consequences.
