Fly with the Green Dragon: Chinese Astrology Animals 2024

So here we are again, another year, another age. 2024 the Year of the Green Dragon with the Grey Rabbit closing on the maximum of the Age of Kali and the Dragon warming up the in between time before the pendulum swings, beginning its journey into the next age back the other way. Last time we saw Dragon was 2012 which was the end of the Mayan calendar. SO this old chestnut, hey!

There has been within our contemporary mind, a bit of a love hate relationship with the Dragon. For some the Dragon is mythical, allegorical; for others part of our missing link with life evolution on this planet. There has been much about this image of the Dragon which has had either positive PR or negative PR. For some a harbinger of divinity and heavenly communication for others one of the animals of the apocalypse. –be all this as it may, I have never once heard a person born in this year, when first told 'they are born in the dragon year', it is always a resounding 'Yes!'. Never once has a Dragon native rejected the idea, they love it.

So, the Dragon is polarising, trigger jealousy and competitiveness in the other not so flashy animals natives and a Dragon may spark a sense of inadequacy to the more humble breeds of the cycle. As if all things are suddenly not as equal as a 'circle' seems to at first imply. I mean the Tiger was a bit of a speed bump to golden ideals of equality and everyone sharing the pastures but now there is a Dragon! Huge to some. Dragon can bring out the best or the worst of us.

This is part of the mystery Dragon presents to our human condition; is duality as simple as black and white first implies? Are all things in Nature symmetrical? or is asymmetrical the symmetry of Nature? Dragon makes us look at our core human nature; our beliefs, our practices, ideological structure, generational patterns of behaviour and how we view ourselves, each other and the world. Are we addicted to the human condition, the human nature. We see our reflection our decisions play out on the world stage which is the physical manifestation of our fundamental structure inner and outer. Dragon presents a mystery to face, our true animal nature in all its glory and all it's darkest vices and compliance to something other than our nature. The simplicity of Dragon is complex and this is just a taster.

As an Earth energy the Dragon is the changing pressures within all elements, water, metal, earth, fire, wood. We will feel it in the rumbles of the Earth, the oceans, the waterways, the air we breathe and the very winds of change in a real sense. It can be a very 'Earth changes' time. So things may be a troubling time on the Earth for some or many. The Chinese, in my thinking, have retained an element of a more ancient symbology of the Dragon as an energy, influence if you like; within and outward.

It is the manifestation of when the Earth talks to the atmosphere. Dragon doesn't spring changes on us or surprise us with destructive forces, that's a little more like Tiger. The Dragon's body contains the story of what is happening in the environment for us to see, if we have eyes to see it. The responses of nature; like the flight of birds, the rising of mists and the formation of clouds, to name a few; for those with eyes to see. Dragon's very appearance is to announce the potential of what heaven and Earth have in mind. What is done with that information is up to us.

On that note, one of the things I'm grateful for, is the interest and enthusiasm of my friends and family over the years. In my little meanderings through the fascinating world of us through the eyes of the ancient Asian astronomer. This has helped form a pot of resources in the foundational development of in the understanding of energy and flow which seems to be in all things. It is such a pleasure to put together the Chinese Astrology for each year. This year has been so energising and focusing to touch, making the process very quick and natural. This is just for fun and I hope you enjoy a little giggle here and there. As usual, I could have kept going, writing on and on for each Animal, especially for some.

Dragon Universe
Chinese Astrology Dragon
Dragon brings us our heart's desire, like the knights of old, be sure your heart and what it desires. Be true to you in all things, be true to those you love, for there is much joy to be embraced, big and little. And I guess this is the mantra for when facing a Dragon show no fear... because it contains and the embodiment of all you dream, wish, pray for including fear so fear nothing, it is not new to you.

We start the zodiac at the 'first' animal, and really if you can grab the essence of Rat, being the first, Rat sums up the general energy of the year for everyone. Maybe because this is a Wood year and Rat is peak Water, if we can all do things as easily and clearly as Rat by; focusing on small things that mean big things in the future, with health in mind. We would all be on the right track.

This year I've added a little of the numerology, as each element relates to a number and each year of course has an end number, for example; 2024 ends with a four. I've mainly mentioned where this mainly effects, so if your animal has not any mention to the numerology there is no need to add extra to it. Also this year I've included a little extra for the dragons of our cycles. Each type of dragon; green dragon, red dragon etc. has a bit extra as this effects them specific to the year more so than others. This is the element of the year you were born in.

If you are unsure which Chinese Astrology Animal for 2024 you are, it is based, in a general sense on the year you were born. Each animal has a list of the years for that animal in its section below the title of the animal.

Chinese Astrology Animals for 2024 -Year of the Green Dragon

2024 Rat in the Green Dragon

1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020.

Dragon tip: The package deal, marriage, career, success, achievement just ask and the Dragon Genii will help you receive. Life is pretty cruisey even for a Rat. All stops out!

Rat King
Chinese Astrology Rat

Rat is the beginning, the seed, the quickening. Rat is first in all things and likes to be first in all things. Rat relies on instinct almost as if they can find their way in the dark. Rats have a natural ability to ‘tune in’ to the goal with unwavering focus, quickly assess their resources and act in the quickest way to achieve the goal. Rat values his cleverness, his quick mind above all else sometimes not seeing the trap of illusion, the fast firing ideas can become a maze of tangled thoughts in quick time. Rat is best when he maintains an open nest and values time to relax, eat healthy foods, good sleep and let go inner fretting. Rat loves to have a close group of people, the pack, who can distract Rat from the continuous cycle in the mind.

OMG Rat! You are the Yoda to the Jedi knights. Dragon has handed you the remote control with all channels. Career, click; abundance, click; health, click; love, click; happiness, click; business, click; fishing, click; entertainment, click; total world excellentness, click. Finally, this is a moment to cruise with the window down, wind in the fur. A year with all the right smells, all the sights; a smorgasbord of delectable delights. What’s that, Rat…Your scared? Suck it up Rat this is your time, leave the nervous itch for some other place and time.

Green Dragon has opened the catacomb for Rat to explore the things that block Rat’s creativity; those fears that get in the way. Try small things and grow into the big things. This is the best time to face fear, use The Force, Ratty, use The Force.

Now as we know any Rat loves a bit of a BBQ, outdoor kitchens and alfresco spaces. This is the year to open the shutters, walk openly on the deck and maybe invite some people over. Success is yours Ratty; add that much needed outdoor area, expand your pool of friends, breathe in the warm vibes around you. However may not be the year to start, just expand or renovate your already awesome plans for the future. Find out the true motives of those who may be a little green eyed before leaping from the hammock. Any single Rats with the urge to tie tails with another, this is the best time. Vavavoom!!!

2024 Ox in the Green Dragon

1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021.

Dragon tip: Steady progress to the end of the year. Ensure to only carry the workload that you can do with ease. Dragon will work you for your reward. Find time for TLC. A just reward for Ox.
Ox Range
Chinese Astrology Ox

Ox is the perseverance of life, the force that moves in a continuous and constant movement. Representing the magnetic inexplicable laws of nature. Ox understands the effort needed to bring anything to light, the determination needed to reach a goal. Sometimes Ox can find themselves in a single-minded rut, missing the opportunities that lay beside the proven track. Kind, personable people who are honest and dependable, Ox can sell ice to Eskimos and link beneficial relationships to support a win-win outcome. Wary of being taken advantage of they may be skittish to sign on the dotted line without feeling secure in their choices.

This is the year when Ox must start the year with the end of it in sight. Dragon loves the work ethic of the Ox, Dragon knows Ox will work when others are distracted by shiny things. Dragon will reward Ox’s diligence if you stay true to your plan starting from day one. What outcomes do you want by the end of the year? Plan it and work toward it. Dragon wants you to kick that goal, no matter how left of field it seems at the beginning of the year.

The pressure to reach some goal may feel overwhelming; take a break, let those shiny things lift your energy. Wood Dragon lends and energy of nurturance be generous to yourself and give a little time to the things your love. Make your goal, then break it into smaller chunks, no need to compromise your health, just maybe in a longer time frame needed and patience for things to catch up to you.

Dragon, being magnanimous, will send you invitations to indulge in distractions and set off firecrackers at each event. Be discerning in your distractions and leave the party early so you are well able to function to the plan. This is time also to pay attention to your health; your spine and lungs, both parts of dragon energy, it could be a good time to take some time learning yoga, tai chi or Pilates to help strengthen this part of the body. There is no distraction from our path like a health issue, take care while you put in the long hours. And it’s a goal!!

2024 Tiger in the Green Dragon

1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022.

Dragon tip: Competitiveness, domination and self seeking sets life in the tailspin. Seek to learn even the most unlikely sources for there is favour, if you lay down the egoic response. Quietly does it!

Tiger Realm
Chinese Astrology Tiger

Tiger is the new growth. Tiger breaks free of constraints and seeks the light. They are fresh and flexible, maintain an ability to strive and grow even in difficult times. They are a paradox being solitary and yet have a connection and reliance upon the whole. They seek to bring the most beneficial elements for the growth of all. They have a wide eyed fascination for all things new, exotic and experimental. Tigers sometimes lack the staying power when something becomes same-o-same-o, they are quickly distracted by newer, more exciting and risky things. Basically the joy Tigers have for life is infectious, they have a serenity of being that can illuminate and lend a sense of youth to even the dullest day. Onward and upward.

This year for Tiger, Dragon is magnanimous and appreciates the diverse approach of the Tiger. Dragon includes Tiger in his circle of trust, if only Tiger can compromise. Especially those born in a year ending with ‘4’. Something about this Dragonyear can push the old competitive button, even if you don’t think you are. Switch the old ‘win one’ back to the usual win/win, with input from others and success is yours. Stay optimistic, even if the end result is unclear, Green Dragon has your back. One growl of competitiveness, domination, corner cutting, going off plan or just general huffiness, things will prove difficult to get off the ground.

Align more with those bigger, wiser and more experienced… allow your creative streak, your diverse methods of problem solving, that amazing magical charismatic enthusiasm to guide you and allow others to hold the leader baton. Trying to move mountains under your own steam or direction is to move against ‘The Force’ and it will magnify you own resistance back to you. Live and let live Tigey, you are on the golden team, use your creative nature to have reign, change in the air this year, how do you want this to be? Yay team!

2024 Rabbit in the Green Dragon

1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023.

Dragon tip: Maintain motivation and optimism, sleeping bunnies will get left behind. Set your pace but keep going, power nap instead of full retreat. Fortune favours the bold.

Rabbit Ashram
Chinese Astrology Rabbit

Rabbit is lush, abundant and promising; they are soft light of Spring time when all is on the increase. They hold the promise of what is coming into being. Rabbit understand and embody nurturance, they give generously of their time to the needs of others. They are the eternal Florence Nightingale, lifting you up and offering you support until you are ‘on your feet’. They will not fight your battles for you but they will hold the lamp so you have a safe passage home. They have a high need for nurturance and expect others to ‘telepathically’ understand their needs. Rabbits are brimming with fortitude and can manage groups of people with ease, they just may need a little lie down on occasion. Rise and Shine.

Well Rabbit, Dragon had such a good time at your ashram, she returns the favour. Dragon’s pace may be more hectic, intense, exuberant and a bit flashy for your liking but believe me you have been handed a gold card. It is up to you to remain in an optimistic frame of mind. Don’t dwell on the whirlwind, just let go into the ride with a few stop overs at exotic sanctuaries for a good massage and a little lie down, here and there.

This is the time Rabbit to dip that lucky foot in some good times for later use. Especially for those bunnies born in a year ending with ‘5’. Of all the Dragon’s, Green Dragon is your kind of Dragon. Understanding, similar tastes and both have the same spa retreats on speed dial. You truly can gain much from your own pace, just keep going, don't let fear stop your progress. No need to match the flashy ones, Dragon has your back. If Dragon was looking for the pearl of longevity, it is our furry friend, nice timing almighty Rabbit of mystical, magical wonder.

Like a proverbial pendulum, Dragon will swing with good gains and long drops… Rabbit’s clue is to focus on the gains be aware there could be a drop and things will even out at the end. Build on the gains. Keep the ‘happy joy joy’ thoughts firmly in place. If you are wanting to bring any changes look around for powerful friends to help bring the changes you need…Dragon’s gold card is an all access pass to all the right people to help your ideas and changes to get of the ground. Go Bunny go!

2024 Dragon in the Green Dragon

1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024.

Dragon tip: Dance the Dragon Dance. Enjoy the freer, more magical time. This year understands the nature of beings who think big, act big and like big results. Here be Dragons!

Dragon Universe
Chinese Astrology Dragon

Dragon is ‘The Force’, the energy that brings things to life and allows them to expand. They are the first breath, they move the elements, and they are the flow. To the Dragon the world is unlimited, people unlimited and time has no meaning. A Dragon is just the person to get a project off the ground. They are natural visionaries, they see where they want to land and they can move anything out of the way to get there. Tending to burn the candle at both ends…remember they don’t inconvenience themselves with the needs of the human body as mere mortals do…they may burn themselves out. Guardian of the pearl of immortality; people, places and things are easily drawn to the Dragon.

Oh lordy lordy, where to begin…redecorate the palace, check; purchase said palace or small tropical island, check; possibly be crowned leader of a small nation, check. Dragon I feel words cannot describe the shot out of a cannon feeling I’m sure your scales are quivering to as we speak…I mean these words are just getting in the way really…why are you reading this anyway. Aren’t they colonising the moon these days, what are you doing here?

Green Dragon parties hard with her dragon posse, all Dragons are sensitive to pressures of change and respond in different ways:

For Dragons born in years ending in 6, OMG, just get out of this dragon’s way, Red Dragon is so inspired, so energetised and just basically brilliant in all things this year. Whatever you want to do just do it, be kind, but just do it! If you have one of these Dragons as your partner; business or life partner, then step back, hand over the reigns and enjoy the ride, Ah’mazing.

For Dragons born in years ending in ‘8’, this is the year to take things a little slower. Explore your ideas, mediate more and contemplate the big picture before implementing. Yellow Dragon needs to conserve energy this year, find a groove or pace and still enjoy all the goodness of the Green Dragon.

For Dragons born in the year ending in a ‘0’ there is good stuff going on, just ensure you relax your fear, your control, practice letting go. Allow others to enjoy creative moments, it is OK to not win sometimes, just take a breath. The White Dragon must ensure to find a hobby, let your heart sing, let people be people, laugh more with loved ones and smell the roses, it is OK to do so with Green Dragon.

Dragons born in year ending with ‘2’ this is the year to be like the benevolent parent, a bit like as if, all the chicks have grown and you fondly watch them swim off down the river into the sunset. This is that kind of year for Black Dragon, your wisdom is sort by others, your insight and your kindness valued, keep the Dragon head focused on benevolence during Green Dragon. You have done enough and you don’t need to prove it to anyone. Breathe out.

For Dragons born in a year ending in ‘4’; Go boldly where no Green Dragon has gone before, should be your t shirt slogan this year. Take this on board. Don’t let the grandeur, the success, the win, go to your head; maintain humility, and spread your Joy and boundless energy into all you do and for those you love. Go higher.

Well mystical friend of every colour, with all that said; if you have been craving recognition this is the year for it. If you have been struggling to progress this is the year for fantastic, I repeat, fantastic progress. Take a breath here…any delusions of grandeur, overconfidence, outrageous promises or taking on more than you can handle will come back to bite at a later date, integrity, humility and a centered sense of being will guide you to carry your success beyond these 12 months and this, dear friend, is what you want. Take the time to make this the time of your life. Be the Never Ending Story!

2023 Snake in the Green Dragon

1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013.

Dragon tip: Ahh favourable times for the most sensitive one, time for a little fun, though ensure not to indulge in gossip as it shall have a way of getting back. Enjoy the dance

Snake Temple
Chinese Astrology Snake

Snake is the inner power, when all has grown to fullness. Snake is the presence of order, the gathering of wisdom by drawing things in. Snake inhabits the cycles and governs the fates. Shedding the skin, snake is reborn, renewed to add wisdom to the next attempt. Snakes can sort out any mess; bring out the best in any situation with Snake’s healing and restorative powers. Snake understands the roller-coaster of life; they can assess risk in a snap, see pitfalls in the dark places and will understand the best solution to overcome them. To mend your broken ways, Snake will know the answer.

Om Snaky, Shanti shanti, Namaste. Yes dear Snake ,the year of harvest is upon you, Dragon rewards the acolyte. This is the year that will seem as if others have come in and set you tasks. Tasks which hold your attention and keep you busy. Tasks that are a fruitful distraction. Keep to the task, steady pace and remember silence is golden. Envy is ripe around you, for you are the secret lover of the Dragon and reward is immanent. Sometimes your easy likability and favour of the powerful can attract the attention of the ill mannered. Be sure to keep your private affairs private, only for those you know will protect your interests. People tongues can run away with themselves, with Dragon energy.

Green Dragon offers a little extra, an energy of nurturance to the Snake, enhancing Snake’s native magnetism and power of attraction to draw valuable assistance in achieving goals. For those born in Snake years ending in ‘7’ be sure not to demand more or expect too much; for Green Dragon has no desire to live up to anyone’s expectations.

Retreat to meditate and build your central power to sustain your energy beyond this year, to set you up for the coming Snake year. Dragon respects the protector of the mysteries; don’t allow petty competitiveness or jealousies to take root with loved ones. Maintain your equilibrium under pressure, your eye of the storm as only Snake can in a flurry of activity and whirlwind of doing. Allow the tasks of the year to be the distractions while you are able to retreat to restore your equilibrium. Avoid direct antagonism and seek a harmonious path even if it is by not doing anything. Sometimes the greatest result is in no resistance. This dear one will be the best harvest for your own prosperity and wellbeing. Om Snaky Om!

2024 Horse in the Green Dragon

1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014.

Dragon tip: Sensitivity to Dragon’s storm bringing highs and lows. Enjoy time with friends and family to keep pessimism at bay, things are better than expected. Keep a tight rein.

Horse Cavalcade
Chinese Astrology Horse

Horse is the sunlight that cheers our heart, they are the freedom of a healthy tree to move with the wind. They are open and mature with an always bright outlook. They can be relied upon to always find a safe path for those they are responsible for, their herd. Horse will always respond to a vision directed by a deft sure hand. They can take a project from point A to B; they have the agility of mind and body to meet any change of direction on the path. Horses can pace themselves to arrive on time, with all the participants and the accounts intact and in good condition. Whew! What a ride!

Keep a tight rein Horse. Dragon looks to Horse and sees it’s future evolution on the earthly plane. In Dragon’s infinite wisdom… and it may only be a good idea at the time; that to help the evolution of the Horse, the emotional body, Dragon awakens things that make horse itchy, anxious or fearful. Horsey, usually the most laid back of us all, is a bit short of patience and things will seem trying more than normal. So what to do, what to do! Chill baby, it only seems worse than it is. Your fears have let the mind gallop off, having its way with pessimism and flights of fancy. There may not be as bad as you think. Your itchiness is only expanding the problem.

Green Dragon offers the Horse a warmer, brighter light. To gallop freely in open pastures in the high country, unfenced and untamed. If you find the energy flag by the midyear make time to find a shady tree, a nice patch of herbaceous greens and take a restoration break.

Dragon encourages Horse, especially those born in the year ending in ‘6’ to pace your energy, it feels boundless and it is, but the physical body needs nourishment and attention. This horse will feel as if the resources are naturally being fed into the dreams and goals, and it most likely will be.

This is the time to really cultivate the things you like to do that help you look to the bright side of life, seek friends who will have a laugh and uplift you. Seek to placate enemies, compromise maybe easier than you thought. Seek diplomacy above bucking bronco trying to kick its way out of the far paddock. Dragon will reward the pure of heart and optimistic of mind. Shine Horse, you are pure Joy in movement and in a golden moment.

2024 Sheep in Green Dragon

1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015.

Dragon tip: Be sure to not fall too deeply into the bonhomie of the Dragon be strict in your budgeting and financial outlay, there is time in the future it will be of better use. TLC all the way!

Sheep Pinnacle
Chinese Astrology Sheep

The Sheep is the centre of balance and poise; they embody harmony and are willing to share their sense of peace with others. Sheep are switched on to internal changes in pressure. This will sometimes distract them from the lofty mountain pinnacle upon which they balance their life. They will seek the peaceful solution, desiring a life of ease and are willing to climb, do the hard slog, for that outcome. Do not be thinking they are weak and insubstantial, prepare to defend your footing if you threaten the sheep’s chosen way of life or perceived path to harmony.

Sheep the gentlest of us all, you sense the stimulation of the Dragon, excitement builds with the opening celebrations of the year. So much activity, so much reward. This is the year of gentle accumulation, be sure to put your gains safely in to a budget of economy as the Dragon energy is too powerful to sustain you long. By being economic in the beginning half of the year will tide you through when things appear tighter in the later half and to nicely set up for the coming year.

Green dragon can lend a sense of Sheep’s kind of vibe, smooth, easy, rewarding with a little romance on the side, nice and just what the doctor ordered. Take a moment to embrace the teachers, the life guides, respect to elders and those who have supported your journey, especially for those born in a year ending in ‘5’. A little extra for the ‘7’to not over expect from the year, be in gratitude and see what comes.

Dragon, though a bringer of plenty for all, the Sheep must take measure to guard their health as the high activity and high living take its toll on the gentler constitution. As you economise your monies also economise all aspects of your energy so you are still partaking but giving quality time to restoring any depletion. Be vigilant in this matter as your gentle heart and mind is needed amongst us. This is a year of happiness, success and love; be sure you can enjoy the whole season. Live long and prosper Sheepie.

2024 Monkey in Green Dragon

1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.

Dragon tip: All the things a Monkey could ask for, fun, excitement and celebration. Dragon is the bringer of success. Ensure financial restraint. Go Bananas!

Monkey House
Chinese Astrology Monkey

Monkey is the most fully developed of all of the animals, the most human like. Monkey is the fruit ready for harvest, fully talented for anything Monkey sets his mind to. Witty, skilled and a fast learner, they can see situations before others and quickly apply a result. Their mind is as agile as their body. They can have a short attention span and can only continue if they view the situation as a game. If Monkey can quieten the monkey mind, stop tail chasing and use their brilliant ideas wisely they can be a master of all.

Well Monkey, you’re in the A-list! Dragon unfetters any constrains, frees worry and throws caution to the wind. Yee Hah! Who’da thought life could be like this? Flash, dash and panache are all right up Monkey’s alley and there is no one to stop it. Your achievements are recognised, your ideas turn to success, the right people are all on board with you and it is an assured winning situation. Love it, love it.

Green Dragon offers Monkey plenty of stimulation and opportunity, the second half of the year could accumulate into a whirlwind of activity. For those born in a year ending with ‘0’ be sure to monitor the level of chaos that may accumulate, just remember if you are going to step into it be sure your can see how you are going to step out of it. Be sure of your path before taking the first step, organise your journey and start with the end in mind.

Attention to health will potentially raise its head if you cut loose the whole year and the finances may wobble out of control. Allow some restraint, be humble in your success or Dragon’s energy will wash on by leaving it all a distant memory. Next year is the year for prudent spending. This year is the year of self-cultivation while accumulating your success. So put it out there all those excellent, wise ideas you’ve been percolating because they will pay off. Enjoy the activity; your body loves to move as does your excellent mind, cultivate both, and learn something new. Grow, Monkey grow.

2024 Rooster in Green Dragon

1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017.

Dragon tip: Be bold find this time of transformation. Who are you beyond who you think you are? Let go of fear and awaken a new way of being. Rise the Phoenix!
Rooster Perch
Chinese Astrology Rooster

Rooster is the time of harvest and plenty; they can pick the best times, the best pieces and scratch in places nobody else thinks of. The Rooster holds the power of transformation. They can unravel a puzzle in a snap and achieve great results under pressure. Taking responsibility seriously, they can over extend themselves and their abilities. Highly competitive and given to impatience the Rooster can be overly critical if not free to develop their quirky interests. Following their eccentricities will calm the mind. Rooster is the best to have with you in any tight situation.

My! Rooster, unfurl those shiny wings and let out a long deep crow, a call to the future, awakening the rise of creation; lift on the wings of the Phoenix. Dragon is your polarity, the yang to your yin and it awakens the mystical ancient power of the Phoenix. You will arise renewed and reborn, crow about it…a bit…not too long….that’s enough. Dragon shares the spotlight only with the Phoenix, you will potentially be given roles of leader, seen as a leader in your field and given the power to shape your destiny. Take hold Phoenix, our Rooster friend, you are assured of success…but you gotta put it out there, no room for chickens. Rise on your wings, don’t be a show off, just stay true.

Green Dragon offers a energy of contentment to its chosen friend, a moment to enjoy the response of the energy put in and the energy put out, an observation deck on the path to sit and take in the view, the vision, regain energy and set forth once more. The natural need to worry can spin the ungainly bird out of step especially in years ending in ‘0’. To much and you may undermine your good intentions with cutting and overly frank comment to those you care most.

Hold the integrity of your heart for it is the germ for your success, it will carry with you through every incarnation of the Phoenix. Justice is yours, let go of your chicken fears…and there are many, allow the magnanimous energy of the Dragon to give you sight beyond imagining. Negativity will pull you down, you not believing in you. Fly Rooster you are the Phoenix, lead yourself to a better life!

2024 Dog in the Green Dragon

1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018.

Dragon tip: Stay true to your heart Doggy, the hard work of the last years can be undone with pessimism. Seek advice. The back seat is more comfortable this year. Amiable does it!
Dog Bed
Chinese Astrology Dog

Dogs are a natural provider, they are the coming of winter, and they constantly ask ‘Who is responsible?’ Dog is a hard worker, the one to be relied upon when the cause seems lost. Dog can work well in a team and will work hard to achieve success. Given to emotional outbursts and emotional overwhelm, Dog sometimes is unable control how he feels and reason can go out the window. The champion of the underdog; the guardian of fairness and equality for all people, Dog sometimes cannot see beyond the pressures given by others. Loyal, compassionate, and friendly, one who will always stand beside you.

Hmm something about all those fireworks that sets Dog’s hair on end. Dragon’s optimism grates Dog’s pessimism radar into overdrive. ‘No, things can’t be this good!'; 'What, another overblown idea!’. Dog may feel disgruntled as the world seems to vortex down the gurgler. Trust in the golden times. Dragon’s going to have some harebrained ideas flying around that will set Dog digging an enclave for loved ones; tricked out with 24hr security and secret passwords. Try not to let the burden of responsibility to tax your patience this year. Find time to Dance.

Green Dragon of all the dragons lends a taste of contentment to Dog. Is almost feels like a warm shaft of sunlight warming the fibers of the coat, just for a moment. Not the time to talk to the bank manger this year not the year to indulge in get rich quick or money generating ideas especially for those in Year ending with ‘0’. Try finding the green in nature, take time out, away from the hustle and bustle to reconnect with the power and majesty of Nature.

Dog, the most affectionate of us all; this is the year you can let go a little cynicism and allow a little golden sunlight to warm the openness of the heart. Try allowing music to calm the waves of overwhelm, let your body move to the rhythm as away to let emotion out in a positive way, or even allow your voice to sing out loud with emotion to nobody in particular. Dogs don't sweat (actual dogs that is) so energetic movement and loud deep body singing can shift energy in a positive way.

Dragon has some excellent advice,(allow optimism, follow the sense of joy, let the tail wag a little); don’t wait all year to heed it; you can find a glimmer of goodness. Allow others the responsibility of the lead, be responsible for themselves and listen to the experience of others no matter how harebrained it seems without the need to do anything.

Take time to research your elders, the grandparents. Are there patterns to change? Are there traditions to embrace about who you are? There is something to learn here. Dragon is a willing wise leader if you just let it be so. Let go Dog, ensure your boundaries don’t confine your growth. Open and Free Doggy.

2023 Pig in Green Dragon

1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019.

Dragon tip: Good times roll on! Piggy don’t be nervous continue your truffle stacking though find time to have a social whirl. Excellent time to prepare for future. Seek and you will find.

Pig Party
Chinese Astrology Pig

The Pig is the maker of rest and peace understands the need for tranquility in life and appreciates the need to celebrate the milestones. Pig is the peace, tranquility, butterflies and blossom petals. Highly sensitive the pig will seek sensitivity ‘down-time’ and will make home a haven. Always a perfectionist but willing to make compromises so everyone can win, Pig is devoted to career and will incorporate personal interests with work. Strong minded almost to the extreme especially if they are unable to achieve their goals. Pig is creative and will indulge in all the fine things of life.

Who better to appreciate a year of plenty then our beloved Pig! Up to the hocks is celebration and good will. Time to reconnect with the social scene, look for things that can put you into regenerating the friend circle. As you would expect from the loud rambunctious Dragon, things will be hectic and busy…good though keep stacking away the nest egg. Ensure you allocate down time because we know you will dance till dawn while the music still plays but for all your robust good cheer, your gentle constitution could handle a bit of an occasional lie down. TLC at regular intervals is the way to pace Piggy through this party season.

Green Dragon has started a conga line and Piggy is high kicking with their buddy, if by the middle of the year Pig finds the year too much, too needy, too demanding on energy and time; then take a break, this year you can pick it all up again after your restorative retreat. Especially for our more sensitive those in years ending in ‘5’. Once you notice a drop in even temperedness time to step away.

This is time for Pig to really take stock of your accomplishments…and there are many, and give yourself a good round of applause. Just accept that others rely on their Pig friend to be the accomplished ‘go-to’ person for their experience, advice and opinion. Try not to get sucked into overwhelm of the energy of the Dragon year, pretty full on, it will wash by, let your optimistic nature float you to safety. Your fears are ungrounded, just stick to the plan and enjoy some social good times. Truffles to snuffle.


Phew! What a year! I thoroughly enjoy putting this together, it makes me consciously tap in to look into the threads of human conscious at this time. I don't consider myself an expert or that this sharing is definitive of Chinese Astrology. I do hope you gained a little smile and a bit of optimism for the coming year. I wish you much Love, Joy, Happiness and Health! May we all have a year that we can enjoy some time together and be happy as we are. Please share with whom you fell may be interested.

Happy New Year!! Kong, hee, fat, choi!
