With 2020 being the year of the Rat (along with 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008)! People within these years have personality traits of being quick-witted, resourceful, versatile, charming, picky, ambitious and bright. You are adventurous and deep thinking and kind with your best matches being with an Ox, Dragon or Rabbit and should stay away from Horses – don’t need those bad vibes thank you! With it being your year, you may get a pay rise, promotion or pass exams – however you’re advised to not drink too much so don’t treat yourself to a night out too much this year!


The years of the Ox are 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021. You’re considered as being persistent, simple, honest, straightforward, patient, hardworking and dependable. Making a talented leader with strong faith and devotion to work, and being trustworthy and like to follow rules this year will bring pretty good fortune in wealth. You may earn a lot of money from work and investment while students will have good luck in study and tests – uni should be a breeze with your attitude! You also get along best with the Snake and the Rooster; however, your opposite is the Goat so don’t let the gossipy goats get you roped into a petty zoo this year.


Years of the Tiger are 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022. You’re brave, confident, competitive, powerful, aggressive and courageous. You can also be rebellious and unpredictable but at the same time protective and sympathetic as well as finding it easy to earn people’s trust. Tigers will get good opportunities in their careers and may have a promotion, and they will also get help from their mothers’ side – the Dog and the Horse are your best signs to surround yourself with, although the monkey is trouble so no monkeying around this year and keep your eyes peeled!


For the Rabbit the years are: 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023. You’re quiet, elegant, kind, responsible, tender, sensitive and non-confrontational. You can convert enemies into friends and can work with speed and efficiency – go you! You’ll have good luck in love and may get a promotion this year, so eye on the prize! You’re most compatible with the Goat and the Pig, however, you can’t enjoy the full farm as your opposite is the Rooster.


Dragon’s years are 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 (me!), 2012, 2024. We are confident, intelligent, enthusiastic, full of strength and energy, always on the go, powerful, wealthy and wise as well as being very excitable people! The Dragon was a symbol of Imperial power in ancient China; and Chinese consider it a great honour to be born in the Year of the Dragon – so we’re basically royalty this time of year is what I’m hearing. Our overall fortune of 2020 is optimistic with progress at work rising despite some ups and downs (don’t let uni/your job get you down – good times are still in the mix for us!). We should look to the Monkey or the Rat and watch out for Dogs. We are likely to come across an approachable and intelligent partner while developing a good diet habit that can keep us away from gastrointestinal problems, so maybe the ‘New Year New Me’ workout motto should be put into play soon…


Snakes are born in 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025. You are enigmatic, intelligent, wise, determined, intense humorous and considered a bit paranoid and hesitant. You can be vain and inclined towards physical beauty, hey, sometimes looks do matter! You will encounter some opportunities to make a little money. In the workplace you may often be subject to a lot of pressure from superiors. Money-related issues may result in disharmony between you and friends or relatives. You’re advised to venture investments and gambling should be avoided as you might lose a lot of money – basically, save as much as you can when you get the chance. Befriend the Rooster and the Ox but not the Pig, don’t need the whole farm just yet for you neither!


Horses were born in 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026. You’re popular and very attractive. Talkative and sometimes showy and impatient, warm-hearted, upright, easy going, independent and energetic. Weakness being a lack of persistence for you horses, in 2020, you will have a high chance of falling in love with someone. Possibly having trouble in their career, their wealth and health. Tread carefully but enjoy this year spending time with your new partner and be persistent in keeping your head above water! Keeping the balance between income and expenses is important in 2020. Lots of physical exercises are necessary – these should help lift some troubles in health and wealth, so you’ve got this! You get along with Tigers and Dogs but never with Rats


The Goat’s years are: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027. You’re calm, gentle, sympathetic, polite, clever, kind-hearted and have a special sensitivity to art and beauty, with a special fondness for quiet living. Overall, you’re a soft-hearted and considerate person. Being indecisive, timid, vain, and pessimistic, don’t let these get in your way. You will have luck in love and relationships with the single people around you expecting you to meet the one you love – don’t let them get to your head and enjoy the company stress free – no pressure this year! The Ox is trouble. Rabbits and Pigs are OK, nothing too drastic to stay away from for you!


The Monkey’s come to play in 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028. You guys are sharp, smart, curious, charming and intelligent and at times deceitful.  You are able to influence people and are successful at almost anything, hey there – ‘King of the Jungle’ or what? Being born with enviable skills, you have several shortcomings: a bad temper and a tendency to look down upon others. With your strengths being enthusiastic, self-assured, sociable and innovative, don’t forget your weaknesses being jealous, suspicious, cunning, selfish and arrogant. You’re a great person – just don’t let things get to your head this year. You’re meant to have a good chance of being promoted or earning a better salary but should reduce your extravagant spending (stay off ASOS!) In relationships, single male monkeys will attract amorous attention on social occasions and may fall in love with someone. Your friends are the Dragon (yay!) and the Rat, but not the Tiger.


Year’s for the Roosters are: 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029. You guys are observant, hardworking, courageous, proud, eccentric (also your downfall) and a little too sure of yourself. You enjoy learning and are not afraid to work, with strengths being independent, capable, warm-hearted, self-respected and quick-minded. This year is normal for you guys, with your income being unstable and may lose money because of accidents. In your career you’ll compete with colleagues in order to get a promotion, which may lead to workplace conflicts. However, Roosters will make new friends with the opposite sex and may start a romantic relationship with them – you’ll be fine with Snakes and Oxes, but Rabbits are trouble for you.


The Dog’s come out to play in 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030. You cuties are lovely, honest, loyal and sincere. You like things to be fair and work well with others as well as not being afraid of difficulties in daily life. These characteristics often lead you to have harmonious relationships! Weaknesses include being sensitive, conservative, stubborn and emotional. But in 2020, dogs may get more money from financial projects and should take their chances actively. Boys will have luck in their love and relationship, but they also need to take the initiative to fight for it. Your friends are the Tiger and the Horse, but watch out for Dragons (sorry!).


Last but not least, our Pigs graced us from: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031. You lot are compassionate, generous, diligent, brave, noble and chivalrous. Make lifelong friendships! You always show generosity and mercy when enduring other people’s mistakes. Some weaknesses are being: naive, gullible, sluggish and short-tempered. Pigs will be under pressure at work in 2020 and might be tested by friends and people around them with vile characters. So try your best to not be too naïve and gullible – look to the opposite sex as you’ll be very popular with them (but handle the relationship properly). You get along with Rabbits and Goats but must avoid other Pigs – you’ll be an enemy to yourself.
