If you were born in a Year of the Rat
Since you’re born under the sign of the Rat, success comes to you through hard work, courage, a strong desire to finish what you start, and your independent nature. You tend to be loyal and protective toward your friends and you might be something of a perfectionist. Your friends don’t see your stubborn or aggressive behaviors in the same way that other people do, because they understand that you need to dance to the beat of your own drum.
During the Golden Rat Year, try not to be too hard on yourself when little things go wrong, because the big picture shows this is a time of generally good fortune when things will move forward. If you resolve to fix old problems, opportunities will come. You should remember that there are things more important than financial worries, and this year, as long as you consider debt and bills an old problem and sacrifice some extras in order to take care of them, you’ll be able to break the pattern and develop a more practical attitude toward money that improves your prosperity.
Do not be overconfident, especially with exercise, because too much exertion and effort may be a source of discomfort this year.
Your most compatible signs are Rabbit, Rooster and Pig.

Wood Rat (Born between 2/2/1984 and 2/18/1985)
Business is good, and it’s a good year for love and romance as well. Hard work and trust in yourself will be your friends, while pride in your accomplishments will become your worst enemy.
Water Rat (Born between 2/15/1972 and 2/2/1973)
Good luck will act as an ally for you in all things regarding your career. Work and business done in partnership with another will fare better than solo ventures.
Metal Rat (Born between 1/28/1960 and 2/14/1961)
Hard work brings excellent results and popularity. Wealth Luck is good, but you’ll need to maintain good relations with family members to keep things running smoothly.
Earth Rat (Born between 2/10/1948 and 1/28/1949) Also (Born between 2/6/2008 and 1/25/2009)

Fire Rat (Born between 2/19/1996 and 2/6/1997)
This is a good year for studies and competition. Praise from those in authority. A chance of increase in income, but be very careful when signing contracts. Stay in contact with friends.
If you were born in a Year of the Ox
Because you’re born under the sign of the Ox, your Chinese Horoscope forecasts that you can increase the positive qualities of the Golden Rat year and diminish the less pleasant ones. In order to do this, strict self-examination regarding your situation in life and what needs to improve is required to open the door to new projects. Your forethought and observational skills will make discovering opportunities easy, but stubbornness and unconscious biases can be your worst enemy.
Others will think of you as fair, responsible, trustworthy, and a friend well worth having. By standing up for yourself and following an honest and upright way of life, you’ll never have cause for regret. This year, your luck comes from self-confidence. Present yourself in a way that proves you have something to bring to the table
You should know that if you don’t make any efforts to alter what isn’t working for you, Luck may abandon you until you make working toward the change you need your top priority. One old prediction says that you may encounter “the unknown” in a way that brings drastic change yet fortunate results into your life.
Be careful with your investments because of coming economic uncertainty. Do more saving than spending. If you can be more tolerant and willing to trust, you should be able to keep things under control.
Your most compatible signs are Rat, Snake and Rooster.

Wood Ox (Born between 2/20/1985 and 2/8/1986)
Building solid relationships with colleagues and co-workers brings good fortune. Luck may diminish during the middle of the year, so avoid legal issues if possible.
Water Ox (Born between 2/3/1973 and 1/22/1974)
This isn’t a good year for love affairs unless they are already established. Be careful not to get too distracted by partying and other fun. Help may come to you through authority figures.
Metal Ox (Born between 2/15/1961 and 2/4/1962)
Don’t get involved in all the gossip; keep your own counsel. Be very careful of signing contracts. As your good deed for the year, try to keep the peace among friends and family.

If you were born in a Year of the Tiger
Since you’re born under the sign of the Tiger, you may already know that it’s one of courage and authority. You tend to do better under pressure than most people, but you usually like to do things on your own. While your charisma may find you in a leadership position, your passionate and sometimes unpredictable overconfidence can cause you to make errors in judgment. And, don’t let doubts get in the way of seizing opportunities.
The energy of the Golden Rat Chinese Horoscope year meshes well with Tiger people, so this will generally be a fortunate year for you. It is not a great year for investing in the markets because of volatility and your natural impatience. If you’re worried about financial growth, it can happen through a source of income other than your current one, but luck will have little to do with it. If you can be flexible and adaptable enough to add a second source of income, this will eliminate any coming hardships, and make it possible for you to put some money away. Some of the plans you have that aren’t connected with your work or business may need to be put on the back burner this year.
Try to tone down your tendency to take an aggressive approach to things. Avoid getting caught up in gossip or social media drama, and this can be an excellent year, despite its challenges.
Your most compatible signs are Dog and Horse.

If you were born in a Year of the Rabbit
Those born under the sign of the Rabbit, are known for their kind and gracious nature, but most of them probably aren’t aware that you’re always on the alert for possible danger. You like things to move smoothly in your generally traditional way of life. You may be more emotionally sensitive than your friends and can be pessimistic from time to time, but the people in your life usually think of you in terms of your love for home, family and home-cooked meals. You will always seek stability and tranquility in life.
Your horoscope for the Year of the Metal Rat predicts an overall positive experience spotted with some challenging situations. They may not be hard to deal with when they come, but they’re upsetting, so it’s important for you to maintain your serenity.
Practices such as Yoga, Qi Gong or Meditation are excellent methods of maintaining serenity and improving your Luck, but only if you stick with them and do them regularly. Once or twice will do nothing for you. Make sure you adapt a well-regulated lifestyle; avoid overwork and drama, get plenty of rest, and plenty of fresh air. Be very careful about your diet. Above all, you should remember during this year that nothing lasts forever – neither the good nor the bad. This is going to be a see-saw of a year, to say the least.

This is an especially good year for starting a business, especially if you have a partner you can really trust. Don’t be too generous: Avoid lending money or speculation during this year.
If you were born in a Year of the Dragon
Because you’re born under the sign of the Dragon, you could already know that the Dragon represents authority and strength. You’re born into a dynamic, passionate, and determined sign. You tend to be popular and generally successful, but some may recognize your perfectionist streak. When your idealism combines with your nit-picking tendencies, you can become dissatisfied with your own abilities. And when your imagination and your idealism combine, you’ll tend to make unrealistic plans, and become overconfident.
The Dragon also loves a challenge and is not easily intimidated. There are times when you can become impatient, lose your temper or jump to conclusions, usually causing problems for yourself. Although you’re strong by nature, you need to act less on impulse and more on forethought and reason.
The Year of the Metal Rat can bring you success, because popularity and good fortune are headed your way. However, you may face some conflicts of interest or other stress in your connections with groups, friends, or partners – be careful not to carry unrealistic expectations of others; they could make life more complicated than you would like.

The Snake is a mysterious, influential and charismatic person, with a soft-spoken nature and good manners. This sign is known to be positive and willing to take on whatever challenges they encounter. There is usually some beauty to a snake person, and magnetism is a natural trait of the Snake. But there is also a tendency to be lazy, which is compensated for by your desire to help your friends. With your graceful and charming ways, you’re likely to attract attention that may be a bit more than you require.
The Golden Rat predicts that spirituality, metaphysics and your personal growth and evolution will probably be the focus of the year. It’s likely that you’ll discover new interests and pursue them passionately. Helping others may be a priority for you and could affect career decisions or other important choices you make. Watch out for possible troubles in your everyday activities, even when things are running in a normal, routine fashion. Don’t lower your guard, and be careful when dealing with friends or family members. This is a good year, but one in which good fortune comes from a calm attitude.

If you were born in a Year of the Horse
In Chinese Astrology, the Horse is considered to be the most independent of all signs. It gives you a perceptive and quick-witted nature and enables you to act immediately in clever ways when opportunity presents itself. You probably made decisions about what you wanted to do with your life when you were very young.
Almost all Chinese Astrology manuals and almanacs say that those born under the sign of the Horse have a talent for working with money and finance. You may sometimes not be in control of your temper and make rash decisions, but on the other hand, you have an ability to make sudden decisions that turn out to be beneficial for you. Your level of attention is what makes the difference – don’t make any important decisions while angry.
Your horoscope for the year of the Golden Rat shows that this is a year when important or major surprises should be expected. It will always be in your best interest to act immediately when your plans or routines are disturbed, rather than getting upset over an encounter with the unexpected. Don’t make plans to do things that could be dangerous, and you should definitely weigh luck in as a factor in decision making; there is such a thing as pushing your luck. Doubting your talents and skills will only delay your success. The resources you need will be easily available to you during the Rat Year.

But when your good deeds are not returned, you can become overly self-indulgent, materialistic and develop a short temper. The biggest problem that Pig people suffer from is the willingness to trust others, which can result in following a path that does not benefit them. Consequently, they suffer from things like office politics and gossip, and are better for variety and travel.
Your horoscope for the Year of the Metal Rat predicts that many new opportunities will appear this year. Past efforts are bringing good results now, and there will be slow but steady improvement in your Luck and in wellness. This is not a good year for business expansion or for family business, because things you have no control over will cause changes in some of the patterns that you’re used to, but if things are rough, good luck comes from finding an alternate route to success.
Your most compatible signs are Tiger, Rabbit and Goat.
Lucky Colors: Yellow, Grey, Brown, Gold
