2023 Forecast Chinese Zodiac Signs: Who’s lucky, who’s not?

We’re all set to welcome 2023, the Water Rabbit Year.

While this rabbit is a black rabbit rather than a white rabbit, its color does not indicate that the coming year will be filled with misfortunes, sadness, or loss. Indeed, the Year of the Black Water Rabbit will bring financial good news, rewards for previous efforts, new promotions or jobs, opportunities to start businesses, new partnerships, and even a breakthrough in love life.

The Rabbit, according to Chinese beliefs symbolises patience, calm and good luck, so that is the vibration that the coming year brings to all signs of the Chinese animal zodiac as well as to astrological zodiacs.  

The actions will be more deliberate, implying that impulsiveness will have a detrimental influence on your goals. Although it will not be catastrophic or hugely damaging, the year encourages us to be more thoughtful and careful with our actions, to think about and consider the consequences of our actions. So, if you want to try something new or even start a new relationship, examine your options, think, and listen to your intuition.

In any case, all zodiac signs are expected to celebrate with joy, as love relationships and even new friendships are expected to be plentiful this year. Yes, it is also a good year to get married or make a long-term commitment. Job promotions and career advancements are also common events for most zodiac signs.

Health is also good. Everybody appears to be calm or less agitated, generous, and have a relatively balanced temperament. Hopefully, there will be less road rage and social media trolls this year. Most importantly, money flow will be good and smooth, but the year does not promise money like magic. It requires a lot of effort.

If success comes in the form of fame, one must also work hard and be focused to achieve it. With focus comes the reminder that less important matters should be ignored. Gossiping, nitpicking, and wasting time on useless activities can all ruin your luck. Choose your battles wisely and avoid getting into disagreements with others.

If you’re wondering how to get started in a career, consider asking yourself what fields you’re interested in. Take advantage of the year’s support for your interests and personal goals.

Most signs will benefit from business partnerships as well. Similarly, this is a year to be mindful of your finances and resources. Again, don’t be rash when it comes to spending or investing.

On the other hand, the year foretells of economic upheaval as well as social and even political turmoil. Concentrate on how to become stronger, more stable, and self-aware in order to navigate through any imbalances or uncertainty in your surroundings.

Now, let’s take a look at how each of the 12 animal signs will fare in 2023.



If you were born in the years 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, 2032, your animal sign is RAT.

Year of the rat

Rats are adaptable and survivors in a variety of environments. They are intelligent, hardworking, and determined to succeed. Rats are thrifty or kuripot, which means they save money or resources. They are prudent with money because they value stability and security in their lives. It is common for rats to be wealthy or to live comfortably by their standards. They can, however, be stubborn or self-centered. Many rats are timid and some lack persistence.

Rat Career/Fortune

Rat’s fortunes have the potential to improve this year. Investments may pique your interest, but speculative ventures should be avoided, particularly in the latter half of 2023.

Unexpected sources of funding may emerge. Some people may receive a promotion or a pay raise at work.

Change of job is also evident; however, quitting your job to look for a new one this year should be carefully considered, weighing the pros and cons.

Rats, on the other hand, should avoid conflicts with coworkers, especially if they are envious of your promotion. Misunderstandings with people around Rats may happen. It is best if rats stay out of the way and just mind their own business.

2023 is also a good year to acquire new skills or continue your education to improve your professional life. This year, the focus for Rats is on career advancement and wealth, so relationships and new love lives may not be prioritized.

This year is a good year for rats because your business attracts customers. If you are self-employed, advertise yourself more frequently and people will begin to notice you. Customers will approve and recommend you if you are truthful in your business dealings.

Rat Relationship

Avoid flirtations or illicit liaisons in relationships, and avoid getting involved with people who have complicated relationship status.

When it comes to love connections, take your time. A chance meeting that leads to a romantic relationship could occur between the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024.

Meanwhile, in your search for a partner, avoid dating scams and dates who expect you to spend a lot of money on them. Conserve your money.

You may also be able to travel this year to meet up with friends or visit loved ones who live far away or overseas.

Ox people may face some challenges, but with their inherent tenacity, they can overcome them.

It is possible that some people will misinterpret your intentions, or if you are at work, your work ethics or changes in your performance will be scrutinized. These situations may or may not have an impact on your pay.

Nonetheless, pay close attention to the quality of your work output. Seek assistance if you are feeling overwhelmed at work.

Some Oxen may receive long-overdue backpay or be invited to fill a vacancy. This year also supports your pay raise request.

Because the Year of the Black Water Rabbit encourages wealth-creating endeavors, you may want to pursue side hustles to supplement your income.

Overall, avoid overspending and, if possible, be frugal so that you have enough money for emergencies or when money is tight.

In business, it is a wise move to seek ways to expand your network, implement new marketing strategies, or even develop new products in order to attract more customers or gain new business leads.

Travel and even relocation to a foreign land is a possibility for Ox this year.

Ox Relationship

Partnered Ox must find ways to strengthen your marriage or committed relationship . Control your temper if there are arguments, and don’t let work problems affect your personal life.

If you are single, while you may meet potential partners, the year may not be favorable for you to form a long-term relationship.

In the first half of the year, you may receive a proposal or revelation from a secret admirer.

The most important relationship you must prioritize this year is your relationship with yourself; take care of your health and personal safety.

Improving family relationships will also be emphasized.

Tigers will receive many exciting gifts in 2023, including abundance, luck, and power. There are signs of travel, new projects, and a good flow of money and opportunities, particularly in the first quarter.

Tigers must keep an eye on every penny in 2023. Not because they will run out of money, but because their expenditure may rise. Having said that, you may need to find other sources of income to make ends meet.  Invest in assets that generate passive income or look for side jobs.

Meanwhile, workplace challenges may arise, and whatever the reason, Tigers must not allow any unpleasant events to frustrate or destroy their confidence. Attend workshops to improve your professional competence, or seek advice from mentors.

Your suggestions for making work more efficient may not be welcomed by everyone, but they are a sign – an epiphany that you will shine in an environment that allows for freedom of expression and creativity.

Tigers in business may face stiff competition from rivals. Continue to work hard to overcome competition setbacks. Someone influential may be able to help you with your business.

Year of the Rabbit

Rabbits are gentle and quiet, but they are also quick to act and very aware of their surroundings. They are not easily manipulated and do not readily give their trust.

They enjoy the freedom to move around, but they are also focused on obtaining what they desire once they have set their sights on something. This is due to their self-discipline, which allows them to achieve their goals without distraction.

Rabbits, on the other hand, dislike chaotic situations. Jobs that are overly competitive are also not for them. They enjoy creating and thrive in a simple, comfortable environment with consistency and little stress.

Rabbit Career/Fortune

Rabbits are advised to tread carefully this year due to some challenges that may arise and which rabbits may find too stressful or burdensome to handle.

Rabbits can rely on their natural optimism in difficult situations. Their intuition can also be useful, especially when dealing with strangers. They must not put their trust in anyone. When conversing with others, use tact.

Their professional situation will remain stable, but they may face difficulties with office protocols or interactions with coworkers.

Meanwhile, this is an indication that you should up your game by improving your work performance and implementing more efficient methods. As you begin to excel in your career this year, people will begin to look to you for guidance.

On the other hand, Rabbits who are looking for new jobs will find plenty of opportunities.

In terms of finances, the advice is to spend money wisely and not to waste any extra earnings. Rabbit business owners must adapt to changes in order to remain appealing to customers.

Rabbit Relationship

Maintain constant and open communication, and communicate any job or business pressures that may interfere with your time with your partner.

Unrequited love is common among singles. The person you will love may not provide you with the love you expect.

Year of the Dragon

Dragons are the epitome of bravery, strength, and ambition. People are drawn to them by their charm and appeal. It’s not surprising that dragons have a plethora of admirers or are popular.

Dragon men and women are alpha or sigma males and females. Their seemingly tough demeanor is balanced by their soft hearts and compassion for others.

Even so, Dragons have a difficult time sticking to an idea or a task. They are proud, yes, but they may lack the motivation to complete what they have begun. They can be pessimistic at times.

Dragon Career/Fortune

The New Year may start slowly for Dragons, but money and luck will not be difficult to come by in 2023. Dragons, on the other hand, must focus and remain optimistic in order to face challenges head on. During these times, Dragons can count on strong support from family and friends.

There are new opportunities to earn money. Professional contacts made in previous years will lend support to new projects or ideas. Because you are appealing to a large number of people, you will attract the bad apples and antiheroes.

Betrayal is an example of a situation you may encounter. There may be people with vested interests around you. Work quietly, and if you have transactions to attend to, keep the information to yourself until the deal is closed. Do not reveal the identities of your contacts.

At work or in business, dragons will face rivals and competitors, and they may have to stand firm against them.

This year may bring some financial windfall, yet dragons are expected to work harder to secure their finances and improve their living conditions.

Some supervisors or team leaders may be dissatisfied with your work performance. Nonetheless, ignore them and continue to produce high-quality work.

You must not allow naysayers or haters to interfere with their work performance or distract them from their objectives.

Also, avoid pleasing others because it will waste your time. Instead, devote time to self-improvement.

Dragon Relationship

In love, assess potential partners to ensure they are not only interested in convenience or material things.

Long-term relationships may progress or be ended, particularly if they are no longer healthy.  Yes, this does imply that some Dragons may be separated.

Some Dragons who fall in love this year will begin to plan their future with their partners and families.

For single Dragons, anticipate relationships to quickly evolve into passionate romance.

Year of the Snake

Snakes, like dragons, are visually appealing. But their allure is almost enigmatic and incomprehensible. They have grace and agility. Snakes, unlike dragons, have a strong desire to complete tasks or plans.

Snakes can get themselves out of a rut. They are deep thinkers who are also perceptive and analytical.

Snake Career/Fortune

Snakes may receive large payouts, but their expenses are also increasing. So, they need to be smart spenders this year.

The job position is stable, but you may be required to relocate for assignments, which may put your ability to adapt to changes and new environments to the test. If you are up for the challenge, you will find success in this stage of your career development.

More work may put additional strain on you, especially if you are also caring for your family.  However, the additional work may increase your take-home pay.

Be wary of opposition from superiors and colleagues as well. Any rejection or objection should not deter you from completing your tasks, even if you must do so alone.

The year will be prosperous for business owners in terms of revenue. What they must remember is that in order to keep patronage growing, they must improve both their operations and their products.

However, be cautious about expanding and thoroughly research the viability of plans for expanding your business (or acquiring another business) before implementing them.

Expanding your network this year will help you grow professionally and personally.

Snake Relationship

Those born during the snake years will be preoccupied with family matters. This year, Snakes  will prioritize securing their families’ futures by purchasing assets to ensure long-term stability.

Marriages and committed relationships may face upheaval in 2023 as a result of personality clashes or financial concerns.

Singles, on the other hand, may find love this year. So, get out there and meet new people.

Possessiveness or scepticism, on the other hand, may have an impact on new relationships. Similarly, Snakes must manage their expectations and be more realistic if their relationships are to last.

Year of the Horse

Horses are courageous, energetic, and full of life. They enjoy being around people, learning about them, and observing humanity. They are, in every sense of the word, explorers and adventurers. People are drawn to horses, which makes them popular.

Horses are open about their emotions, and what you see is what you get when it comes to their emotions.

The perceptive Horses enjoy observing and analyzing things, and because they have a keen eye for details, they can spot errors or discrepancies.

Other common characteristics of horses, such as being overly ambitious and confident, as well as impulsiveness and impatience, can taint how others perceive them. Their lack of motivation to complete a task can create roadblocks to success.

Horse Career/Fortune

Horse people will have good fortune in their careers, wealth, and relationships.

This year, they will be unusually motivated to complete tasks, beat deadlines, or close deals. They’ll be able to sprint to promotions, pay raises, and even bonuses. Money could also come through other sources.

However, you should be aware that your impulsiveness may cause you to overlook fine prints in contracts or to disregard important details in conversations or correspondences. Be wary of the specifics of any investments or ventures involving money or reputation.

Your professional life will be generally fruitful. However, as you reap the benefits of your efforts, enemies or envious people will not be far behind.

Conflicts can arise as a result of ambiguous expectations or misunderstandings about agreements or contracts.

When it comes to team projects, transactions involving other people, or multi-party agreements, it is best to conduct your due diligence. Set guidelines and expectations, and abide by the law.

Horse Relationship

In terms of relationships, this year is favorable for you to marry or form a committed relationship. Singles may meet someone through mutual friends.

You might meet someone interesting in the middle to late part of 2023. It’s also possible that the person you meet will help you advance in life.

For partnered Horses, keep your temper in check and be patient with your partners to avoid conflicts. Work must not get in the way of nurturing your relationship. Horses are primarily concerned with family matters and domestic harmony.

Businesses for Horses will prosper, particularly those in the consumer products industry. Before putting all of your money into a high-risk investment, it is important to carefully research it, to avoid financial losses.



If you were born on 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027, 2039, 2051, your animal sign is SHEEP.
Year of the Sheep

The meek, gentle sheep is just so endearing. They rarely act irrationally or aggressively, and when they do, they usually cool off right away.

The sheep are helpful and sympathetic. Although these benevolent, considerate, and kind attitudes are prone to abuse, sheep people are also skilled at setting boundaries.

They do not approve of people who cross their lines. Friends and family members may be put off by their stubbornness, passivity, and pessimism. Despite these limitations, the sheep requires support and understanding.

Sheep loves the arts and enjoys being creative. They are both diligent and intelligent. However, the majority of them are not suited to working in industries where they must deal with unpredictability, constant challenges, and competitive environments.  They are more at ease in routine or predictable jobs and businesses. Dealing with failure is not one of their strong suits.

Sheep Career/Fortune

Sheep will have a satisfying life in 2023. The sheep will benefit from travel or a change of residence, as well as good fortune and health. They will be recognized and even promoted in their careers. Some Sheep may also find new employment with a higher salary. 

This year’s money situation will be favorable. They will make more money as a result of their work and businesses.

Their network will grow, which will aid in their professional and financial advancement. The key to maintaining a steady flow of wealth luck for the sheep is to remain humble, grounded, and compassionate toward others. They should also strengthen their interpersonal relationships.

Higher education can also help Sheep advance in their careers and gain a competitive advantage. So, if this is the plan for the year, they should go for it.

The sheep have numerous career options. Their creativity can also inspire them to pioneer an opportunity breakthrough that will bring them money.

Sheep Relationship

In general, 2023 might not be the year to meet “the one” for the Sheep. For a few others, there is the possibility of being involved in illicit affairs, which will not only cause you emotional distress but may also harm your wealth luck.  

A romantic situation with an undecided lover may now gain clarity, as to whether they will ask you to continue your relationship or end it.

This year, communication is emphasized for the married Sheep. Tolerance and understanding will help to bridge any gaps between partners.  

Handle the relationship crisis calmly. Nurturing a common goal (or even a common hobby) will help to strengthen your bond with your partner.



If you were born on 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028, your animal sign is MONKEY.
Year of the Monkey

Intelligent, smart, cunning, and sharp-minded monkeys are born leaders. People like them because they are funny, sociable, and helpful.

They take the initiative and have the courage to face new challenges at work.

However, there are some “misunderstood” characteristics of people born under the sign of the Monkey. Monkeys are labeled as conceited, which is simply a manifestation of their confidence; sarcastic, which is due to their directness; impatient, which is due to their predisposition to get things done correctly; and opportunistic, which is due to their excitement with breakthroughs and filling in opportunity gaps.

Monkeys’ wit, logical mind, and keen eye for details can lead to a plethora of career opportunities. Their inclination for challenge may also lend itself to careers requiring analysis and complex problem solving.

The adventurous Monkey enjoys solving mysteries and exploring uncharted territory.

Monkey Career/Fortune

For the Monkeys, the year will be calm and steady. Monkeys will have a good fortune, but they will need to work hard at their jobs and businesses in order to have consistent cash flow.

There is an opportunity to collaborate with new groups willing to share the Monkey’s progressive ideas. Monkeys will thrive and shine in this environment.

Some monkeys who remain at their current workplace with familiar coworkers may face hostility or stifling of their ideas. Some coworkers may be resistant to the monkey’s innovative ideas.

This year, you must work harder and not procrastinate. Workload may increase. But this is because fate is preparing you for bigger things to come at the end of the year, when new projects and even more work turn up.

Of course, this translates to more money, recognition, and rewards. In the midst of these changes in your wealth aspects, Monkeys must remain grounded and considerate in their words and actions so that they are not misunderstood or cause conflicts. They must also spend wisely and invest in long-term financial instruments.

Business will generate good sales for business owners. However, the viability of expansions may necessitate further study. Besides that, be mindful of individuals who may take advantage of you in business. If you brag about your accomplishments or business growth, you will be targeted by scammers and individuals with malicious intentions.

Monkey Relationship

Prepare yourself, Monkeys, because you will be attracting romantic prospects this year. You might run into them at social gatherings or events.

When you meet someone you like, carefully consider the person’s qualities. Take your time getting to know them before you fully commit, especially since you will most likely change your civil status in 2023.

For married monkeys, your charm may attract the wrong people, tempting you to enter into inappropriate relationships. Maintain your loyalty to your partners.



If you were born in the years 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029... your animal sign is Rooster.
Year of the Rooster

Roosters are outgoing, amusing, and friendly. They are also adaptable and do not become upset in new environments.

They are persistent and do not give up easily when faced with adversity. The Roosters dislike staying in the same place for an extended period of time. They want to advance, so they work hard to improve themselves.

While they are well-liked for their friendliness, their straightforwardness is misinterpreted as arrogance.

They are also perceived as egotistic and attention seekers. Their impatience and temper can be damaging to teamwork or even the formation of personal relationships.

Rooster Career/Fortune

The Roosters’ fortunes will be sluggish. The career aspect could also be stagnant. This may not be the year to get that promotion or raise you’ve been hoping for. But, as a rooster, you never give up, and your unwavering perseverance will be rewarded in some way, somehow.

The best way to achieve your goal this year is to concentrate on one or two goals that have the greatest chance of success. Spreading yourself too thin will deplete your energy.

Begin projects with realistic outcomes, or at the very least, manage your expectations for the time being. Roosters may also rely on their intuition when making important decisions.

It will also be beneficial for roosters to mingle with or join groups of like-minded individuals and those who are striving for success.

The positive energy this brings can help the roosters’ rather gloomy fortune. However, do not mix business and pleasure, or become involved in love affairs with material motives.

Avoid risky investments and spend with caution. It is also advisable to keep your financial situation private in order to avoid attracting fraudsters or scammers.

Roosters are likely to encounter workplace antagonists during their careers. Workplace pressures will be significant as well. Having faith that all of these unpleasant events at work are only temporary will help you find peace of mind. Concentrate on your work rather than office politics.

Rooster Relationship

Committed roosters may face relationship issues. Some roosters may find their partners’ new friends or associations unpleasant.  

Single roosters may have difficulty finding suitable partners this year. They may become involved in toxic relationships or be partnered with overly jealous, distrusting people. Please keep in mind that toxic relationships will only cloud your judgment and may have a negative impact on your finances, health, and livelihood.

There is also the possibility of being involved in a romantic situation in which you must choose between two people. One indicator of who to choose is the type of associations, circle, or friends they have.



If you were born in the years 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030, 2042, your animal sign is DOG.
Year of the Dog

Dogs are dependable, honest, and helpful. They are also naturally alert and cautious, so they do not make friends easily, first ensuring that they are trustworthy before accepting them into their close circle.

Dogs, in addition to being sensitive and emotional, are prone to making cynical remarks. Some people may find Dogs to be narrow-minded and unwilling to admit their mistakes.

Dog Career/Fortune

People born under the Dog’s animal sign will have a vibrant year. This year, you may be promoted or recognized as a result of your previous efforts and dedication.

A windfall of money from unexpected sources or as a reward for your accomplishments is also highlighted. Dogs are resourceful and know how to capitalize on opportunities that will yield high returns. Securing assets such as real estate or other investments will yield benefits.

Dog Relationship

The year ahead will be eventful in terms of relationships. Commitments will be solidified or clarified, and unsatisfying relationships will have to be cancelled. In 2023, Dogs in Love will have to make these choices.

Single Dogs will benefit from the relationship aspect as well, as potential romantic partners will enter their lives.

Some Dogs may meet someone of a different race or culture who becomes their partner. While there are many romantic prospects, temptations are not far behind, especially for Dogs who are already in a relationship.

Dogs will also have the opportunity this year to examine relationships that have been strained due to money, either due to a lack of money or an unnecessary demand for money. Allow your intuition to guide you in making the best decision.



If you were born in the years 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043.. your animal sign is PIG.
Year of the Pig

Pigs are the luckiest animal sign this year, according to Chinese Zodiac predictions. Their diligence and integrity, combined with good luck, are bringing them blessings in the year of the black water rabbit.

Pigs are dependable, compassionate, and generous, earning the admiration and affection of others. Their genuineness and trustworthiness can sometimes work against them because people with bad intentions may take advantage of them. Smooth talkers can also easily persuade them.

Pigs, on the other hand, are always looking for the good in others. They are peacemakers who tend to resolve disputes as they arise. It is unsurprising that Pigs have good karma and are guided to success and a good life.

While pigs are hardworking, they are not well suited to high-stakes industries. They excel in areas such as public service and entertainment. They enjoy learning new things and spending time in nature.

Pig Career/Fortune

People born under the Pig sign will do well in most aspects in 2023. Work and career will be good, though some positive changes in these areas may occur. Pigs will amass wealth as a result of their hard work or positive outcomes in business or side hustles. They will also receive favorable recommendations, which will help in their professional growth or business publicity.

Pig Relationship

Pigs can meet several romantic prospects, but these relationships are likely to be short-term. It is also possible to have a whirlwind romance.  Pigs seek compatibility in relationships, which is a difficult criterion to meet. However, the possibility of finding “the one” who checks all the boxes is present this year, putting the Pig’s free will to the test.

If the shy Pig ever gets into a relationship in 2023, they must express their affection openly, even through simple gestures.


Spread the love
