“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”
Are you prepared for 2021?
The Chinese New Year begins a new cycle of the twelve Chinese zodiac animals and in 2021, this will be the year of the Yin Metal Ox. A change in the Cycle will usually bring a fresh start for the year ahead with hope and promise for some form of success; some animals will face more challenges than others in 2021 although each of the twelve animals will be able to make this a promising year ahead once they are aware of any challenges that may come their way.
Everyone in the world was faced with big challenges in 2020 and unfortunately, it is more than likely that this will continue through a lot of 2021, bringing health and financial issues to a large number of the world’s population. The year of the Ox will almost likely come with its share of challenges although it is how we handle obstacles that will define how our year will turn out; all of the twelve Chinese animals have everything in their power to overcome any challenges and make this a successful year and when aware of potential risks, they can minimise and even avoid them during the year of the Ox so please read carefully below.
With everything that took place in 2020 with COVID-19, it is almost certain that the main areas to especially take care in 2021 are health, finances and career as these will all require extra care and attention during the year of the Ox. To help minimise risks and turn a potentially harmful year into a good one, please make sure you place your annual Cures and Enhancers for 2021.
I am sure that there will be a lot of Horses who will welcome the year of the Ox beginning on the 3rd of February 2021 (solar year) as the Horse was the conflict animal during 2020 and will likely have faced challenges throughout the year of the Rat although I know there will have been a large number of Horses who still enjoyed 2020 and the positive influences that the Rat year brought their way.
With everything that took place in 2020, the year of the Ox will likely bring a lot more challenges than recent years and the best thing I can recommend to make the most of 2021 is to prepare early and read through our free advice for Chinese New Year 2021 and take a look through the annual Feng Shui cures and enhancers for 2021 and then combine this with a positive outlook on the year ahead in order to make this a successful and fun year of the Ox.
The Goat/Sheep is the conflict animal during the year of the Ox and will face some challenges in 2021 although even if you are a Sheep/Goat and read below that 2021 will not be a good year for you and all disasters will come your way, adopt a positive attitude and follow the advice given below and in the 2021 Flying Star (Xuan Kong) recommendations, you will be able to avoid any bad luck that is predicted.
Having the knowledge of how to avoid unlucky Flying stars in 2021 will allow you to directly change your luck in the year of the Ox. Every year, there are hundreds and thousands of websites and other Feng Shui masters who will predict that there will be all manner of problems for certain Chinese animals but please take this with a pinch of salt and have a fantastic year of the Ox as there are still so many positive aspects to look forward to this year.
I mentioned this further up but the best advice I can give you to make sure the year of the Ox is the best that it can possibly be is to start preparing early; read through the advice given across the site and also start planning your 2021 Cures and Enhancers so that everything is ready to be placed on the 3rd of February when the annual Flying stars change for the year. I would also make sure you check back each month for our monthly updates giving you even more control. Or you can use our professional Feng Shui software giving you even more control on an annual and monthly basis. This year we have combined the software with our annual cures kit to provide even better value.
What is the conflict Chinese Zodiac animal for 2021 in the year of the Ox (Xin Chou)?
Those born in the year of the Goat/Sheep will likely be affected by the incompatible influences of the year of the Yin Metal Ox (Xin Chou). Please be aware that although the Goat/Sheep is the conflict animal of the Ox year, by being aware of possible difficulties that can come their way this year, they can overcome and avoid issues by taking extra care and avoid unnecessary risks in 2021.
The degree of influence varies from one person to another. One of the primary considerations is the heavenly stem of the year in which one was born, and I have written below how all of the twelve Zodiac animals can make the most of the year of the Ox and what to focus on in their life this year.
When the year of the Ox begins on the 3rd of February 2021, we will need to place some exceptional and extremely powerful cures in our home and workplace in order to make 2021 as successful and enjoyable as it possibly can be; this will allow all of the twelve animals to make the most of the year of the Ox and enhance their luck in all areas of their life.
To find your animal sign, check the charts below. If you were born before February 4th (Spring Begins), use the year before. If it is after February 4th, then use the same birth year. This is worth double-checking; as you would be amazed at how many people born in January or February get it wrong.
If you are unsure of your Chinese Animal maybe consider using our Feng Shui software that calculates it automatically along with personal Gua, flying stars, annual, fixed and monthly and so much more.
- Born 3rd February 1958 = Rooster
- Born 5th February 1958 = Dog
- Born 3rd February 1987 = Tiger
- Born 5th February 1987 = Rabbit
What year would I have to be born to be a Goat/sheep?
The cycle of Chinese animals comes back around every twelve years and for your Chinese animal to be the Goat, you would have to be born on the following years:
4th Feb 2015 – 3rd Feb 2016
4th Feb 2003 – 3rd Feb 2004
4th Feb 1991 – 3rd Feb 1992
4th Feb 1979 – 3rd Feb 1980
4th Feb 1967 – 3rd Feb 1968
4th Feb 1955 – 3rd Feb 1956
4th Feb 1943 – 3rd Feb 1944
4th Feb 1931 – 3rd Feb 1932
4th Feb 1919 – 3rd Feb 1920
4th Feb 1907 – 3rd Feb 1908
If you were born in the year of the Goat/Sheep, please do not start worrying as there is so much that you can do to make the year of the Ox a rewarding and enjoyable one. The Goat may be the conflict animal in the Ox year although this does not mean that 2021 will be a terrible year for the Goat; with care and planning, the Goat can still enjoy a wonderful time in the year of the Ox.
All of the 12 Chinese animals will have some area of their life that will require attention in 2021 although as you read below, you will see that some will have it easier than others; you have to take the good with the bad, unfortunately. I have written below how all of the 12 animals can make the most of the year of the Ox and what to focus on in their life this year. As we come into the year of the Yin Metal, we will need to place some powerful cures and enhancers for 2021 to make the most of the year, and this is especially the case for certain animals.
Is Chinese astrology the same as western astrology?
Chinese astrology is different from western astrology in the sense that Chinese astrology will make you aware of what may come in the year ahead and how you can apply Feng Shui cures and enhancers in your home or workplace in order to avoid problems that are predicted and also enhance luck throughout the year. Having this information ahead of the year beginning will help you prepare and make informed decisions during 2021 that can benefit your health, finances, career, relationships and much more in the year of the Ox.
The flying stars in a home cannot only bring great luck into the house, but they can also cause a lot of problems, making it essential to create the right balance. Even if you had an auspicious star in your bedroom during 2021, if it is treated with the wrong cures or elements, you can turn something good into bad and cause issues in different areas of your life. Chinese astrology is also about knowing how the year ahead could turn out and what you should be aware of in your life for the year according to the Chinese Animals.
When we are aware of how the year ahead can go, we have an enormous advantage as we can take steps to ensure that problems are avoided and auspicious luck is gained during the year ahead. Imagine if you knew that your engine would break down at a certain time of the year, you can use this knowledge to take preventative steps and make repairs, saving a lot of wasted time, energy, money and stress; Flying stars work in a similar way as they will warn you about possible problems in the year ahead, allowing us to place the relevant cures to mitigate issues.
Prevention is usually the best solution when you are predicted a troublesome year; if you were predicted to have health issues in the Ox year, you would then focus on practising a good diet for the year and get regular exercise to give yourself the best chance of avoiding health problems in 2021. If you are predicted to have financial issues this year, you would probably be wise to avoid buying a brand-new car this year if this would stretch your budget. Knowing what could take place in the year ahead can help with good and bad aspects of your life; if you read below that your animal can advance in their career this year, it would be wise to dedicate time to your work and take on a more active role in the workplace.
Every year, I dedicate a great deal of time to research the 12 Chinese animals for the year ahead to make sure that the advice and information that I write is as accurate and detailed as it can be. When reading through the predictions for your Chinese animal in 2021, I would recommend saving it or printing it out so that you can come back to it throughout the year and check-in to make sure that you are following the advice.
What can I do to make the year of the Ox 2021 as successful as possible?
“Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now.”
I keep saying this but the most powerful tool that you can have on your side for the year ox is preparing early! Every year, we receive thousands of emails and calls during the week before Chinese New Year asking if we can get a cures kit over to Australia in three days or what to do with the northeast of the home as Tai Sui is located there for the year.
Postal services have slowed down in certain countries in 2020 due to COVID and although we ship orders very quickly, it is out of our control to send the annual cures and enhancers kit across the world in a few days and luckily, we have noticed that people are a lot more prepared in recent years ordering the 2021 Cures and enhancers in November and December in order to make sure everything is ready for the year ahead and there is no mad rush in February, and we thoroughly recommend you do this also. During 2020, we have been lucky with post getting to countries with minimum or no delay although please be sure to prepare early in case this changes.
Another very powerful tool to have in the year of the ox is the 2021 Flying Star Analysis. If your Chinese animal is going to face some problems this year, you can use the Flying stars to enhance or cure the areas that will affect the areas of your life that will require more care in the Ox year; you honestly can bypass a large number of problems that could be coming your way. It’s incredible how you can uncover the cause of your problems just by going through the Flying Star chart for your home or office.
If you are unsure how to map the Flying Star chart for your home, I would recommend taking a look at our Academy of Feng Shui Flying Star software as this will not only plan your home, it will also give you a full analysis for every sector of your home or office.
Other Feng Shui websites have said that all Goats/Sheep will lose their jobs and get divorced in 2021; is this accurate?
Unfortunately, a lot of people like to spread fear and panic when it comes to the Chinese animal predictions and if you’ve read my predictions in previous years, you will know that I hate this approach as there is always a way to turn a problematic year into a fantastic one. One thing that I can assure you is that the Goat will face some sort of obstacle during the year of the Ox, as will every other animal (myself included) although by following the 2021 Flying star advice, reading through the Chinese animal predictions and placing your 2021 Cures and enhancers, you can make these obstacles a lot less of a problem than they could be.
We have always worked on the ethos of offering alternatives to Feng Shui cures for people who do not want to use them or cannot afford them; although it is not as effective, we always believe that the options should be given. You will also see on our site that we have plenty of ways to quickly get in contact to ask us questions or advice.
We have been writing Chinese Animal predictions for over twenty years, and while we always state the facts, we will always offer a solution to any problems that may arise. Please take the advice that you read with a pinch of salt and have a fantastic year of Rat.
“It is better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot.”
If you want to be fully prepared, you could use our professional Flying Star Feng Shui Software which will give you total control on an annual and monthly basis. This year we have combined the software with our annual cures kit to provide you with even better value and savings.

2021 is the 4719th year of the Chinese calendar.
In China, the solar calendar of the Xin Chou (Yin Metal Ox) year starts on the 3rd February 2021 at 22:58 China time. In the UK, the new solar year starts on 3rd February 2021 at 14:58. In Washington USA it will start 3rd February 2021 at 09:58, and if you live in Barcelona, you will place your cures at 15:58. Every year we put together a page on Chinese New Year world times 2021 that will help you confirm the times and dates for the Chinese New Year’s Solar and lunar. This is not the Chinese New Year 2021 that you would celebrate with friends, family and loved ones; please check this website for further details.
