What your Zodiac sign means in 2024


You’re inclined towards saving and collecting, and don’t often have financial issues. You lead an organised live. When you present someone with a gift, it means you care deeply about then (see above about not spending!) You’re sensitive and can sense trouble. When you take risks, you usually succeed.

2024 will be a year of challenges for you. Expect a new career opportunity to come up, and new areas of growth will open up too. You should avoid any risky finical investments this year.


If you were born in the year of the ox you have a great work ethic and a profound sense of responsibility. ‘Ox’’s are great at persevering. While not particularly romantic, you’re patient but will never chase after someone who isn’t interested in you. You’re reserved and keep your emotions internally, which makes it challenging for others to understand you fully. When you lose your temper, it manifests as an explosive outburst that can push others away.

2024 will be a positive year for the Ox. Good career opportunities are just around the corner and they will bring a rise (whoop!) and more recognition. Their hard work will pay off and bring you great things.


People born in the year of the tiger are very outgoing and have great self-esteem. They like to be the leader in a group. You’re passionate about justice and always stand your ground in arguments. You can be reckless, which may cause failure, but you never truly accept failure, rather find ways to rise again and ultimately achieve success.

2024 will be busy for tigers. You’ll  get lots of job offers, but be careful when choosing to change career, as well as making important decisions.


‘Rabbits’ are extremely patient, intelligent and have great manners. You’re responsible and have great attention to detail. You take love very seriously and are careful about who you fall for. But when you do fall in love, you’ll do anything for that (lucky) person.

2024 will be the year of promotions for rabbits. You’ll receive lots of opportunity to grow. Focus on self-care this year and stay away from over-indulgence.


‘Dragons’ are very adventurous and love romance, but can be very mysterious and are often indifferent to what others worry about. You can come across as lazy, but will put your all into something you’re really passionate about.

2024 will be a great year for you. You’ll face ups and downs in your relationships, and will need to keep your egos in check.


‘Snakes’ are idealists. You may seem ‘cold’ to a new person, but once you get to know them you’re friendly and outgoing. You don’t like to share and it annoys you when people try to take your things. You’re committed and determined, and don’t get on with people who are lazy.

2024 will be the year of changes for you. If you work hard and preserve, you’ll make it a great year. Be careful when dealing with your co-workers. Home-life will improve this year although your finances will be average. 


‘Horses’ never back down or give up. You always push yourself and are outgoing – you like to express yourself. Unfortunately, you can be bad at keeping secrets, and will lose interest in something quickly.

2024 will be full of opportunities for you.  Stay focused and work hard on your goals. Consider taking steps to improve your mental wellbeing.


People born in the year of the goat are very kind and innocent. You do have strong opinions, but you would rather keep your thoughts to yourself than cause a fight. ‘Goats’ will do whatever possible to achieve success, and sometimes use patience and politeness to get your way.

2024 will be the year of stability for you. Your hard work will pay off financially. You’ll enjoy your relationships, but continue to be patient.  


‘Monkeys’ like to focus their energy on things that are important to them. If you don’t care about a task then you’ll put in little effort. You’re curious and have lots of energy. Relationships are extremely important to you, and you love spoiling your children.

2024 will be a good year for ‘monkeys’. Your job will go well and you’ll receive opportunities to prove yourself. Finances will be good, but you will have lots of bills to pay. Make sure you budget well.


People born in the year of the rooster are very smart (and cunning). You’re good at thinking on your feet. You’re a creative person, but you often shy away from working in creative fields. You like to plan carefully and are very good at sensing others’ emotions.

2024 will bring good health for ‘roosters’. Your finances will experience ups and downs, and you’ll need to be careful with spending. Be mindful of your relationships and how you talk to others.


‘Dogs’ are very conservative and follow the rules. You’re loyal and make a great employee. The most important thing to you is family and you’ll do anything for them.

2024 will be a successful year for ‘dogs’. Your income will improve this year, and finances will be steady. You should focus on good nutrition and exercise.  


‘Pigs’ are very logical and can get themselves out of any tough situation. Sometimes, your communication skills can be lacking, but you are kind and take good care of your family. Sometimes, you can lose your temper.

2024 will be lucrative for ‘pigs’. You will receive lots of good opportunities, including marital bliss and great relationships all around.
