Unlock the Dragon’s Fortune: How the Wood Dragon Year Shapes Your Zodiac

This week heralded the arrival of the Chinese New Year, and this year is perhaps the most auspicious of all – The Year of the Wood Dragon.

The Year of the Dragon is considered particularly lucky, as the dragon symbolises power and strength in Chinese culture. In this time of celebration and good fortune, how can we incorporate the luck of the dragon into our daily lives? And how exactly will the new year impact each Chinese zodiac sign?

The expert astrologers at Psychic World teamed up with Inbaal Honigman, celebrity psychic and astrologer to provide insight into what this year will bring to each of our zodiacs.

What does the Wood Dragon mean for YOUR birth year

Dragon (1928, 1940, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024)

Those born in a Dragon year are naturally confident and lucky, so the equilibrium of this year will hold great allure, bringing an extra dash of luck as situations and personal connections will work in their favour. 

Inbaal adds: “Naturally, the Dragon year is extremely fortunate for Dragon-born people. Their fiery nature and penchant for leadership will be seen as advantageous in a year which is aligned with their personalities. Dragon people are kind and wise, and during the Dragon year they’ll be appreciated for their contributions. Promotions and awards are likely for those born in the year of the Dragon in 2024.”

Rat (1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020)

The Year of the Rat and Dragon are very successful when working together, so expect positivity for your career aspirations, money and good prospects this year.

“The hard work and quick wit of those born in the year of the Rat means that they don’t believe in good luck and bad luck, they believe in doing their best. The ease with which they find success in 2024 will surprise and delight them. They’ll make new friends who have the connections to place them in good positions, and chance meetings will prove fruitful to this gentle sign this year.”

Monkey (1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016)

The imaginative and creative Monkey feels included during Dragon’s reign, as the charisma and confidence of the Dragon form a safe space for the Monkey, who shares such fiery qualities as enthusiasm and agility.

The playful nature of those born in the year of the Monkey means that their quick smarts easily harness the fortune promised by the year of the Dragon. Monkey born people want to make a career out of playtime, and during 2024, many opportunities will come.

Ox (1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021)

“Practical and loyal, those born in the year of the Ox are known as reliable and dependable. The year of the Dragon can bring about sudden changes. Usually they’re lucky changes, but the steadfast Ox can still find those frequent changes to be stressful, as the Ox favours stability.”

This year of the Wood Dragon, the Ox will face some challenges, due to a clash of energies. However, utilising your ominous fortune could lead to a year of meeting new friends, and exploring a new world.

Tiger (1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022)

The feisty Tiger and aggressive Wood Dragon will bring both opportunities and obstacles this year. Being strategic, responsible, and focusing on self control will allow the Tiger to flourish in 2024.

“Those born during the year of the Tiger are courageous and competitive. The year of the Dragon is positive for Tigers as the fiery breath of the Dragon pushes the Tiger to bravely step forward and take chances, winning competitions and garnering positive attention.”

Rabbit (1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023)

2024 is a year of prosperity for the lucky rabbit, so expect everything to go smoothly, and follow your wishes.

“The elegant and compassionate character of those born during the year of the Rabbit might seem out of alignment with the powerful passion of the year of the Dragon, but in fact, the Rabbit is seen as the luckiest of all the animals, so the artistic Rabbit-borns will be doubly lucky during the fortunate Dragon year.”

Snake (1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013)

“The snake’s subtle nature may see them fail to thrive during such a red-hot, epic year like the Dragon. Imaginative and independent, they could find their best qualities to be steamrolled by the fast pace of the Dragon year.”

Those born during the year of the Snake are sensitive and intuitive. Prioritise your own wellbeing this year, focusing on your physical and mental health. Natural retreats, or places with lush greenery or serene waters will bring additional positive energy.

Horse (1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014)

Horses are blossoming this year, and they might just have whiplash for how many potential love interests are set to enter their life in 2024.

“Individuals born during a Horse year are active and energetic. Their bombastic personality will shine during the Dragon year, as the fireworks of their character will blend well with the explosive joy of the year. They’re not looking for particular luck, Horse-borns just want to have fun.”

Goat (1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015)

2024 won’t have much to offer out of the ordinary for Goats this year, however, hard work will be rewarded. Use this year to try a relaxing sport, such as yoga or cycling.

“The creative and friendly nature of those born during Goat years will serve them well as they make their way through the year of the Dragon. Goat-born people are gentle and nurturing, and do their best to interact with others in any situation.”

Rooster (1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017)

Good news, Rooster! This Year of the Dragon, you’ll embrace better relationships all around—from friends, family, mentors, and of course, potential romantic partners, reflecting a new found maturity in you.

“The outgoing and ambitious Rooster will feel right at home during the Dragon year, since the excitable nature of the Dragon imbues the whole year with its enthusiastic vibe. Those born on a Rooster year will put their many skills to use, thanks to the luck of the Dragon.”

Dog (1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018)

Enjoy the peace and harmony of 2024, Dog, and you might just see the reemergence of some long lost connections. Don’t overwork yourself, and don’t be afraid to say no, even though it might be hard for your naturally giving soul.

“The honest and patient nature of those born in Do years never goes out of style, and their sincerity is appreciated during the Dragon year. The enthusiasm which the Dragon brings to 2024 is enjoyed by the amiable Dog.

Pig (1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019)

Don’t dwell on short term affection over long term love this year, Pig, and don’t take your relationships for granted.

“Those born during the year of the Pig are peaceful and considerate. The year of the Dragon can be challenging for Pigs as their kindness and laid-back nature may find the loud and fiery characteristics of the Dragon year to be overwhelming. Pig-born individuals are very friendly and will rely on their social circle for support.”
