  • Period 1 –  4th  February 1864 – 3rd February 1884
  • Period 2 -4th  February 1884 – 3rd February 1904
  • Period 3 – 4th  February 1904 – 3rd February 1924
  • Period 4 – 4th  February 1924 – 3rd February 1944
  • Period 5 – 4th  February 1944 – 3rd February 1964
  • Period 6 – 4th  February 1964 – 3rd February 1984
  • Period 7 – 4th  February 1984 – 3rd February 2004
  • Period 8 – 4th  February 2004 – 3rd February 2024
  • Period 9 – 4th  February 2024 – 3rd February 2044
  • Period 1 – 4th  February 2044 – 3rd February 2064

When period 9 begins, the number 9 Flying star will become the prominent and most auspicious Flying star for the next 20 years; in period 8, the number 8 star was the most auspicious and so on.

Period 9 Feng Shui will belong to the Li Trigram (fire element) and in period 9, we can expect a lot of prosperity and progress for females; especially the middle daughter of a family. Period 9 will also bring a lot of fame, happiness and recognition to all genders and we will see a big rise in celebrity influence from social platforms such as Tik Tok etc.

Chinese New Year 2024 will begin on the New Moon and according to the Lunar calendar, this will be on the 10th of February in 2024. The Lunar New Year will take place after the Winter solstice and the event is celebrated by millions of people from every single corner of the world. The Chinese New Year is very much a time of new beginnings and a fresh start to life for the year ahead. The New Year is a time of family celebration and the majority of the event is a time for family to reunite and come together to see the New Year in. Below you will find everything you will need to know about Chinese New Year 2024, year of the Yang Wood Dragon…

Those born in the year of the Dog could be affected by the conflicting influences of the year of the Yang Wood Dragon. Although the Dog is the conflict animal during the year of the Dragon, those born in the year of the Dog should be aware of potential difficulties they may encounter during the year and take extra care in whatever they do without taking unnecessary risks in all aspects of their life. Regardless, if you follow the advice here you can avoid many problems and enjoy a great 2024 in our opinion so do not panic.

It should be noted that there are five different types of each Chinese Animal (fire, water, wood, earth, metal) which depends on the year you were born and each different animal will have different predictions for the year ahead.


For example:
Metal Dragon: 1940, 2000
Water Dragon: 1952, 2012
Wood Dragon: 1964, 2024
Fire Dragon: 1916, 1976
Earth Dragon: 1928, 1988

The degree of this influence varies from one person to another. One of the major considerations is the heavenly stem of the year in which one was born so if you were born in 1932 or 1992 which would be a Water Monkey, the year will not be bad at all.

Holidays and observances in China in 2024

In China, there are seven legal holidays in any year, namely New Year’s Day, Chinese New Year (Spring Festival), Qingming Festival (Tomb-Sweeping), Labour Day, Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, and National Day.

Amongst these official holidays are four traditional Chinese holidays, which is always subject to the lunar calendar. The double third festival is on April 11th 2024 although this is only celebrated by Zhuang Nationality in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Although the solar (Hsia) calendar commences the New Year at the beginning of Spring, which usually falls between the 3rd and 4th of February, the lunar (Yueh) calendar marks the New Year on the second new moon after the winter solstice.  Celebrations and festivities for the Chinese New Year are held on this date. In 2024, the Lunar Chinese New Year, also known as the ‘Spring Festival,’ falls on the 10th of February 2024.

Important dates for Chinese New Year 2022

28 thoughts on “Chinese New Year and Feng Shui, Year of the of the yang Wood Dragon – Xuan Kong flying star, Chinese astrology for 2024

    1. Hi Aduncan,

      They should ideally be replaced as they absorb a lot of negative Qi if they have been used for the #2 and #5 in the past, although if you decide to reuse them, it is best to cleanse them with a clean cloth and place them outside for several hours before placing them in their new location for the year.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

  1. Hi hope you are doing well.

    Iam Rat (1960) kua 2. Iam moving in a new house. Can I go for East /Northeast/ South west, facing main door as these are auspicious directions ?
    2023 I had West facing main door and had a very very difficult year, health wise and work wise.
    Would really appreciate your help as I cannot afford to have another bad one.
    Thanking you in advance for advice. 🙏🙏🙏🙏

    1. Hi Sakira,

      Your auspicious directions are the northeast, west, northwest and southwest. If you can find a home with one of these facing directions, this will help.

      For more precise results, I would have a look at the annual Flying star analysis for 2024 as this will help you fine tune different areas that you want to enhance.

      I hope this helps 🙂

      Kind regards,

  2. 2024 Fu Symbol Blessing: Do we put it upright or upside down this year? What date display it and for how long does it stay displayed? Also if this year upside down when does it turn back right side up?

    1. Hi Carol,

      The Fu symbol should be displayed with the symbol upside down outside of your home. You would place this on the eve of the New Year and can remove this the day after New Years day.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

  3. My husband was born in 1959, and he is an earth dog, what amulet would help him in the year of Dragon? Thank You!

    1. Hi Spring,

      Your animal is the Rabbit and I would recommend carrying a talisman of a Dog as this is your protection animal.

      I hope this helps 🙂

      Kind regards,

  4. Hello,
    I need some guidance. Our room is allocated to the south and southeast. Currently, our bed is positioned in the southeast and partly facing south. I’ve learned that this arrangement may bring affliction in 2024. Considering this, I’m contemplating moving the bed to face west and partly southwest, with our feet towards the wardrobes. What do you think?

    1. Hi Ehva,

      From what you’ve described, moving the bed ot the westand southwest will be a better option. If this was facing the southeast, this can bring conlict with Tai Sui in 2024.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

  5. Hi Daniel –

    First thank you each year for putting all of this info together and publishing it for us to reference. Truly appreciate!

    I’m looking for some suggestions – We need to have renovation work performed in a NE bedroom that is currently under the 5 star in 2023. Is it better to do it now at the tail end of 2023, or wait until February and do it at the beginning of the new year cycle when that bedroom comes under the 4 star? I know star 5 is the worst tragedy star but wasn’t sure how to handle it from 2023 to 2024.

    1. Hi Marla,

      You’re more than welcome!

      Do you mean the northwest? If so, it would probably be better to wait until February as while the #4 star will be inauspicious, it will be less damaging than the #5. We will have Sui Po located here for the year, so i’d make sure you follow the recommended advice for 2024 as noise and renovations can cause issues. As long as this is light renovation and you keep noise levels down as much as possible, you should be ok.

      I hope this helps 🙂

      Kind regards,

  6. I have used your website for many years and have always felt the protections to be helpful. This year we are having our loft converted, obviously, the impact will be felt in all directions and although no ground will be broken there will be a great deal of noise and vibrations from the work which will last around 4 months. Is it possible to set up a protection that will see us through this disruptive period please?

    Many thanks

    1. Hi Loocie,

      Thank you for your lovely words 🙂

      I’m afraid there isnt anything that will completely negate the effects of the work being done, although by placing the relevant cures for 2024, this will help keep the energies as settled as possible.

      I hope this helps, and hope the conversion goes well!

      Kind regards,

  7. I have been bedroom bound for over 12 years due to disability and health reasons. I feel I am stuck. I bought this house as a stepping stone but became sick and now it won’t raise enough money if I sell it for me to move and I am too sick to work and get a mortgage. Is there anything I can do to change my fortunes?

    1. Hi Jools,

      I’m afraid it is hard to give tailored adivce for this, although if you are bedroom bound, you could implement small Tai Chi Flying star into your bedroom where you would treat the annual Flying stars in each compass sector of your bedroom to enhance or weaken the appropriate stars in each area to enhance your space.

      Here is the link for the Flying stars for 2024; this has lot of recommendations for how you can enhance each area with colours and objects –

      I hope this helps you make positive changes 🙂

      Kind regards,

  8. our house faces north.. work station is on the northeast.. bed is on the east.. kitchen is on the southeast.. bathroom is on the southwest.. we are just renting.. how to enhance career and money windfalls?

    1. Hi Nikka,

      I’m afraid it is very hard to advise on a home without having done a full consultation.

      The best advice I can give is to read through the 2024 Flying star analysis as this will help you make the most of each sector in your home and has lots of recommendations for colours and objects that you may already have around the home to enhance these areas –

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

  9. I am a 1979 Goat and worried about Period 9 because my desk at work is sitting facing South 180 (with back facing North) and even more worry about my apartment with door facing SE 120 and balcony with all the windows facing the streets facing NW. What should I do and which cure should I get for Period 9 please to protect my job in sales and my apartment? Thank you.

    1. Hi,

      I’m afraid it is really hard to advise on the Flying stars of a building without having doen a full consultation. I would recommend having a look at the 2024 Flying stars analysis as this will help you make the most of next year. It may be worth finding out the fixed Flying stars for your home if you want to learn more about how to enhance your home in period 9.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

  10. Hi Heather,
    I come accros into your website and exploring cures for 2023 that i’ve been searching for althoug its almost the end of the year and i couldnt what i was looking for until i found your site and im glad i did. You are so different than any other fengshui stores. However, I’ve lost financially this year and i’m a Rabbit sign (Water) and i’m looking something to cures, my question is do you think is too late and can i use these cures for next year? I’m planning to purchase in your website.
    Thank you so much and looking forward for your response.

    1. Hi Marylou,

      I would focus on the south and north of your home for the rest of this year until the 3rd of February 2024 as these are great areas for wealth enhancement and can make a big difference and has lots of suggestions for item you can use that you may already have around your home.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

  11. You made a mistake about the Wood Rabbit Years. 1919 is the year of the Earth Sheep. You should fix that; it’s 1915 that should’ve been posted.

    1. Hi Heather,

      Thank you for pointing this out, and apologies for the mistake. I’ve updated this for the Dragon year now with the correct years.

      Kind regards,

  12. Me ha encantado toda la información del 2024 y yo estoy bucando un Tong Shu que contenga hasta diciembre de 2024. Ustedes pueden proporcionármelo? Muchas gracias

    1. Hi Maria,

      We plan to release the 2024 Tong Shu Almanac around September or October this year and will send out a newsletter once this is all available on the site.

      I hope this helps 🙂
