As the Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year, begins on February 1, 2022, we bid farewell to the tumultuous Year of the Ox and welcome the Year of the Tiger with new hopes and ambitions.
What does the Year of the Tiger signify? Which zodiac sign will have the best luck in 2022? And what does your 2022 Chinese zodiac sign say about you? Here’s a quick guide to the Chinese zodiac, or Shengxiao, and what every animal represents this 2022.
Chinese Zodiac Sign Horoscope for 2022
The Chinese zodiac consists of 12 different animals that repeat on a cycle. Every year, one animal along with its distinct attributes is chosen to represent the whole 12 months. You might think that if you are a Tiger, this year will be especially lucky for you–but in fact, the opposite is true! If you are a Tiger, this year will be filled with challenges for you to face on your road to greater success next year.
Here’s your Chinese Zodiac Sign horoscope for the year 2022 based on your zodiac.
|Zodiac sign||Birth years||Horoscope|
|Tiger||1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022||People born in the year of the Tiger are vigorous and ambitious, daring and courageous, enthusiastic and generous, self-confident with a sense of justice and a commitment to help others for the greater good. But unfortunately, Tigers will not have good luck this year. They will likely suffer setbacks and misunderstandings at the very least, possibly even meet with disasters on a more serious scale.|
|Rabbit||1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011||Rabbits will have a mixed fortune in 2022. They will not be affected by Fan Tai Sui, like Tiger, although their luck will fluctuate a great deal. Wealth will increase for Rabbits and they will be prosperous this year. But emotional issues will likely stress their loves and relationships.|
|Dragon||1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012||The overall fortune of Dragons as they enter the Year of the Tiger in 2022 is not very optimistic. Dragons are advised to work extremely hard this year to stay ahead. Dragons will find their ability and efficiency to learn greatly improved in 2022, so their academic status this year will probably not be too bad. To find success, Dragons should learn to be more positive about others around them.|
|Snake||1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013||Snakes will not be blessed with stellar fortunes in 2022. This is a year of “punishing” aspects for Snake natives, as it is a year of Fan Tai Sui, likely with frequent interferences and chaos, leading to various tests for Snakes. Snakes will do well in their careers and make plenty of money, but don’t expect a great love story or sudden academic success this year.|
|Horse||1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014||Entering 2022, Horses will be rid of the influence of Fan Tai Sui in 2021, so their overall fortune will be on a steady climb in this year. Ambitious Horses that work hard will be blessed with career advances! However, Horses should be aware of emotional instability that will damage their personal relationships.|
|Goat||1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015||After 2021, the luck of Goats will improve greatly in 2022! Overall, Goat’s love life will be due for an upgrade in 2022, for both singles and those already in a relationship or marriage. Interpersonal relationships will be blessed overall. In their careers, Goats will be appreciated and make great strides towards their goals, but remember to stay humble.|
|Monkey||1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016||Monkeys may have to weather some intense storms, in which everything looks unpredictable and will test Monkey’s resilience in life. Monkeys should stay flexible and take advantage of opportunities to come out of the year on top. But, younger Monkeys can breathe a sigh of relief, as education is the one area where they will have luck in 2022.|
|Rooster||1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017||The year of 2022 will present fluctuating fortunes for Roosters. They can expect improvements in career and personal finance, especially with the help of generous higher-ups, making this quite a successful year for Roosters in terms of money and status.|
|Dog||1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018||In the year of 2022, Dogs will turn their luck around from the previous year’s hardships and begin to get rid of the obstacles that have been standing in their way. With steady improvements in their work and love lives, Dogs can also expect to do well in school as long as they focus on their health and mental well-being.|
|Pig||1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019||Pigs will be blessed by Tai Sui in 2022, but unfortunately, other aspects may cause a bit of trouble despite this. As such, Pigs can look forward to an abundance of good luck this year, which may be punctuated by periods of instability and changeable fortune. Single Pigs, you will have an excellent chance of meeting someone you like, and if you play your cards right, you will end 2022 with them in your embrace and a new year’s kiss as 2023 rolls around.|
|Rat||1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020||Fortunately, the lunar year of 2022 is likely to be a much better year than 2021 for Rats. The bad luck you experienced in 2021 will be completely washed away and replaced by happiness and joy in many aspects of life. Men may have better luck in their love lives, but all Rats will enjoy better physical health this year.|
|Ox||1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022||People born in years of the Ox will be helped by people in high places this year, and no matter what luck they encounter, Oxen will be able to turn it into good fortune. Oxen will also get a huge boost in their love life, with plenty of opportunities to meet potential partners and marry. Both your income and your expenditure are likely to stabilize this year, and the financial strain you may have experienced in 2021 will greatly ease.|
