In the Chinese zodiac twelve year cycle, each year has a different Chinese animal sign, and those born in that particular year are said to inherit the characteristics of that Chinese zodiac animal. These animals, in order, are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig and this valuable document will reveal your secret friend, your two allies and your conflict animal.

Chinese Animal compatibility chart

In authentic Chinese astrology, the twelve Chinese animals can be categorised into four groups of three animal allies, also known as San He (three harmonies). Anyone born to a certain Chinese animal zodiac will get along very well with their two astrological ally friends in the group, as shown below.

As an example the Tiger, Horse and Dog form one of the four zodiac allies group and will have special affinities between them although the most powerful ally (secret friend) for the Tiger is the Pig who is also known as the Boar and ideally you should carry an image of your secret friend with you at all times

So to try and harness your horoscope secret friend, carry this horoscope ally talisman with you wherever you go. You can also place this lucky charm in your car, office or beside your bed, personally I keep one beside my bed and another in my wallet.

Doing this is said to help improve luck and success and help you avoid many problems, even if the horoscope prediction does not look good one year. Your zodiac secret friend is said to give you give you the power and energy to get through these tricky times as well as enhance your luck.

Gold Plated Animal CharmEvery authentic Feng Shui Master and consultant will recommend this and it is something I have done as far back as I can remember, personally I have a gold plated Chinese Animal protection Talisman in my wallet, one in my car and one beside my bed. I have shown an example below.

You will notice from the graph below your Chinese animal will have two allies and these are also someone who are said to protect and enhance luck although a secret friend is someone you can always count on and will always protect and you should carry this talisman card close to you at all times.

Note that if your animal sign is yang, your secret friend will be yin and if your animal sign is yin your secret friend will be yang.

Every Chinese animal will have a conflict animal, as you can tell at the first sight, is the opposite of what your allies and secret friends are. These are the animals directly opposite to you on the compass.

  1. My husband and I are both water monkeys.
    We have a dragon and rooster child. We want a Dog and a rat child. Do you think the family dynamic is chaotic or it can be tamed? I’m very curious to hear your thoughts. Thank you!

    1. Hi Reina,

      All animals may have different things to work on in order to make the relationships work well although if everyone communicates well, they should be able to enjoy a loving relationship together. The Dog and Dragon are clash animals; I am a Dragon and my father is a Dog and we have a great relationship as we are aware of the clash and work around it.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  2. My husband was born a sheep in 79 and I was born a water rooster. We are expecting a metal Ox child in May 2021. How can my husband better his relationship with our ox child? I know that sheep and ox may clash. Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Clara,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Ox may sometimes find it hard to come to terms with the Goats inventive and unusual ways. Although there will be some difference between these two animals, with a bit of care and reasoning, they will both learn a great deal from each other and build a great relationship.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  3. Hi There,
    I’m a metal rooster (1981) and my husband is an earth pig (1971) and we have an earth dog son (2020).
    Do you have any advice on how best we should parent our son?

    Also, we are contemplating having a second child.
    What year would you recommend having the second child so there isn’t discourse within the family?

    Much appreciated,
    Noree

    1. Hi Noree,

      The Rooster, Pig, and Dog will best get along with the Snake as this should bring a good balance in the home and family.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  4. Hi ! I’ve recently been to a few masters and it seems like all have conflicting advice. I’m born in 1990, so I’m a metal horse?

    One (who took my birth date/time) told me I’m lacking in water hence should wear black, blue. However two other masters (who only asked for birth year) said I need red, and should avoid black and blue. So I’m getting a little confused here. Should I follow the master who took the birth date and time as the more accurate advice?

    Would also like to check metal horse and water pig compatibility, since one master said water would complement while the two others said water wouldn’t.

    Thank you !

    1. Hi Laura,

      If you were born between the 4th of February 1990, your Chinese animal would be the Metal Horse.

      They were probably going by your Gua number which is 8 and you should use shades of reds, peach, burgundy, maroon and pink. Any colour that has a fire look to it. Enhancing colours are the element colour that assists you and this case fire creates earth.

      In a romantic relationship these two animals are brilliant together. Their relationship will be filled with passion and love. They both enjoy living life to the full. These two animals have a great mutual understanding. These two animals will have an amazing relationship together.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  5. I am an earth snake and my boyfriend is a fire rabbit. We are a relatively new couple Are we a compatible match?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Jane,

      In a romantic relationship, the Rabbit and Snake will find much happiness together. They both enjoy a quiet and peaceful lifestyle and will have a lot of interests that they can share with each other. They will support each other at all times and the Rabbit will admire having such a considerate and calm partner. They will be a great match.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  6. Hi Mr Hannah,

    My partner is a Female Fire Dragon and I’m a Water Pig (1975 and 1983) respectively. We are opposite in eveything we think and do – we get on like a house on fire or at each others throats…..

    Do you have any interesting advice on this relationship type or examples of Water Pigs and Fire Dragons in the real world i.e celebrity (successful!) couples.

    Kind regards,

    Matthew

    1. Hi Matthew,

      In a romantic relationship, both animals will understand each other very well and will have a great deal to share. Both animals have similar interests and the Dragon will value having such an unquestioning and loving partner. They will make a great match.

      If you go through disagreements throughout the year, I would recommend reading the monthly Flying star advice for the #7 and #3 stars as these two stars can cause arguments.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  7. Hi there,

    I’m a male 37 year old Water Pig and my partner(female) is a Fire Dragon – Aries Sun, Leo Moon and Virgo Sun and Pisces Moon respectively…. We get on like a house on Fire or A HOUSE on FIRE!

    Any Feng Shui Thoughts on this one?? 🙂

    1. Hi Libby,

      The Chinese animal synopsis is more of a guide. I am a Dragon and my father is a Dog and on paper, we are incompatible although we have a great relationship 🙂
      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  8. Hi, am an early 81 Metal Monkey and he’s an early 77 Fire Dragon I’ve been having a pretty big crush on (not just crazy physical attraction, but actually to his whole being).

    We couldn’t be together for YEARS for professional reasons, so he’s been pretty reserved with me (when he doesn’t seem as much so with others) and I’ve been kind of avoiding him not to jump on him inadvertently…

    I really thought he might feel the way I do, but even though i know he’s VERY busy and he’s always been nice and helpful to me, he hasn’t seemed in a hurry AT ALL to date me since we stopped being technically unable to do so.

    We’re both Aquarius, so probably even more independent than our Animal signs already make us…

    Does that mean I read the signs wrong and he just doesn’t want a relationship so I should just stop thinking about him? I feel he might really be the guy for me, but am tired of waiting around to find out!

    1. Hi,

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals will share so many interests together. These two animals are very well suited together. The Dragon will find the Monkey to be excellent company. These two like to lead an exciting life and will find life great together and will find much happiness with each other.

      I would recommend sitting down and talking to him to see if he is interested in a relationship as your two animals are very compatible although he could not be looking for love at the moment.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Hi, I am married to a 1980 metal monkey (male) and am also a 1977 fire dragon (lady). This combo seems to work great so far! Most compatible person ive been with. If I flare up Dragon style which seems to happen from time to time! The monkey seems to know what to say and do to calm me down lol xxx Go for it! Get the dragon

  9. my fiancé is a dragon and i am a horse. We are planning to get married on dec 2020. However, we went to seek a fengshui master to count for an auspicious date for our wedding and turned out that the date that we wanted, clashes with the groom’s zodiac. Can i know what will impact us and what will happen if we decided to proceed with our selected date?

    1. Hi,

      It is always best to get married on an auspicious date although it would not be the end of the world if you cannot achieve this.

      I hope the wedding goes well.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  10. Hello,

    I am a Wood Ox 1985 and my husband is a Fire Tiger 1986. Will we have a loving lasting marriage? We are complete opposites in thinking and everything we do

    Also, which animal years will be good for us to have a second child? We currently have a Earth Pig child 2019

    Some people have mentioned that 2019 is not an Earth Pig but a Metal Pig, can you please clarify this? Thank you in advance!

    1. Hi Nevaeh,

      Relationships can also be a bit twitchy at times in the office with the Ox and Tiger. The Ox will portray the Tiger as reactive and spontaneous which can make relations a bit difficult at times in the workplace. The Tiger likes to take action and will dive straight into any activities given to them while the Ox would much rather take a slow pace and plan as they go along. Both animals appear to be well-established in their ways although this can be overcome if they work out a common agreement.

      The Ox prefers a quiet existence and might find it hard to adapt to the lifestyle of the Tiger. The Tiger may be enjoyable company and an affectionate partner but these two animals often have conflicting interests. They will need to find time to compromise in order for this relationship to run smoothly.

      The best children for an Ox are the Snake, Rooster, or Rat.
      The best children for a Tiger are the Horse, Dog, or Pig.

      I can confirm that 2019 was the year of the Yin Earth Pig – https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/cny2019.htm

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  11. Hi, if a Monkey Dad and Dragon Mum has a Rat Daughter (born this year), would a Rabbit second child in 2023 be compatible with the current Animal Signs in the family, both in terms of Parent-Child and the sibling- sibling relationship? From what I’ve read on your site, a Dragon second child would be desirable, while a Tiger would not be ideal. Is that correct?

    Greatly appreciate your advice, and keep up the great work!

    1. Hi Toby,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Monkey parent and Rat child will be very close to each other. The young Rat will live up to their Monkey parent’s expectations. The Monkey will be very keen to encourage the young Rat to do well in life and this will bring a strong bond and great respect between the two animals.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Dragon parent will be very happy about the young Rats eager and resourceful personality which will enable the Dragon parent to teach the young Rat a great deal in life. There will be a strong mutual understanding between these two animals and they will have a very strong love for each other.

      The connection between the monkey and Dragon parent with the Rat child will work very well.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Dragon parent will encourage them as much as they can through life. There will be a good relationship between these two animals although the Dragon parent will wish the young Rabbit was a little louder at times.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Monkey parent will admire the young Rabbits cheerful and confident nature. These two animals will develop a great deal of respect for each other and will share some of the same interests as each other. Relations between the Monkey parent and young Rabbit will be very good.

      The connection between the monkey and Dragon parent with the Rabbit child will also work very well.

      With the Rat and Rabbit, the Rat usually admires the Rabbits peaceful and discreet manner although the Rabbits sensitive nature and the fact that Rabbits wish to lead a less active lifestyle may lead to problems between the two. Both animals may need to make adjustments to the circumstances above if they are to build a solid relationship.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thanks so much Daniel. Greatly appreciate your comments. Regarding the last portion on the Rat and Rabbit relationship dynamics, would a Rat-Dragon sibling relationship be potentially better then? Thank you.

        1. Hi Toby,

          The Rat and Dragon make a brilliant couple. They both share their friendly, outgoing nature with a love for home life. These two animals will be extremely supportive of each other. The Rat will feel very relaxed that they have such a confident, loving and respectful partner. The Rat and Dragon will find a lot of happiness together.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  12. What happens when the inner animal — born in month of January so it is ox— is in conflict with birth year animal—born in 1979, so sheep. Does that produce conflict in oneself? Does it make it easier to be in relationship with an ox, the secret enemy?

    1. Hi Melissa,

      The inner animal is the same as the outer animal. If you could let me know your date of birth, I will be able to check your Chinese animal.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  13. Hello please help. I am a rooster 1993 and my husband is a rabbit 1987. Our fist born boy is a goat and we’re planning for a second child. Which sign is best for us rabbit or dragon?

    1. Hi Ann,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rooster parent will appreciate the young Rabbits willingness to learn but the parent blunt nature could cause problems every now and again. Relations can be a little awkward at times.

      In a parent and child relationship, these two animals may not always get along as well as they should. The Rooster parent can sometimes lose their patience with the Dragon child. Both are determined and the Rooster is always ready to discipline so there will be clashes from time to time. Relations will improve as the Dragon gets older.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rabbit parent will understand the young Rabbits sensitive side and will try to encourage them as much as possible. The young Rabbit will appreciate their parents care and will appreciate the protected environment found in a Rabbit home. There will be a great bond between these two animals.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rabbit parent will have a great deal of pride for the young Dragons enthusiastic and enterprising nature and will encourage them through life. There will be a good relationship between these two animals although the Rabbit parent will wish the young Dragon was a little quieter at times.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  14. My husband and I are both fire rabbits and we had our son last year (earth pig). We are planning to have a few more children in the coming years, but I’d like to know the compatibility among the signs between siblings as well as parents. Between the signs: Ox, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake and Sheep – what top 3 would be best for family compatibility?

    1. Hi Anne,

      Out of the animals, the Rabbit is most compatible with the Ox, Snake, and Goat; I have written the synopsis about the compatibility below which I hope you find helpful.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rabbit parent will teach a great deal to the Ox child and will help them to develop well in life as long as the encouragement is shown from the Rabbit parent. These two animals will share a strong bond which will be strengthened by there similar interests.

      In a parent and child relationship the Rabbit parent will understand the young Rabbits sensitive side and will try to encourage them as much as possible. The young Rabbit will appreciate their parents care and will appreciate the protected environment found in a Rabbit home. There will be a great bond between these two animals.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rabbit parent will relate to the quiet and insightful Snake child very well. They have a great understanding for each other which will cause the relationship between the Rabbit and Snake to be very good.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rabbit and Goat will share a lot of the same interests with each other and the young Goat will be a very good influence on the Rabbit parent and will make them more calm and supportive.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  15. I am 1979 goat Sagittarius currently jobless. I never been lucky in my entire life. Always have bad things hAppen to me. I wish can rebirth as another zodiac . I think this year worst year i will not able be stand up again. Lost and helpless in life. I am single i will dying alone .

    1. Hi,

      I’m so sorry to hear that you feel this way.

      The Goat is in conflict with Tai Sui in 2020 so I would recommend avoiding facing towards or sitting in the north for extended periods of time.

      When looking for a partner, your most compatible animals are the Rabbit, Pig, and Horse.

      I would recommend reading the synopsis for the Goat in 2020 for help on how to make the most of the year – https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/chineseanimals2020/goat.htm

      I hope this helps and hope that things improve for you.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Tiril,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Ox child will feel at great ease in the secure environment of the Ox household and will listen whenever the Ox parent guides them. The Ox parent will be extremely fond of their child, especially as they will see so much of themselves in the young Ox, they will teach the young Ox not to make the same mistakes that the older Ox made in their younger years.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Ox parent will take pride in the young Rats resourceful and imaginative nature and will do all that they can to encourage the young Rats many skills. These two animals will have a very close relationship.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Melissa,

      When your animal is opposite the year animal, this means that your Chinese animal is the conflict animal for the year. For example, in a Dog year, the Dragon would be the conflict animal and would need to work harder to make this a successful year.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  16. Hello,
    I come across your very resourceful website from googling my concern. I am an earth sheep and my husband is metal rooster. Our first child is horse boy. He is very loving and easy to care. We have been trying for second child but has not been successful until now, which means we would have rat baby. We are extremely happy and I know that rat clashes with horse and rooster in some relationship. How is the outlook of the parent and sibling relationship with this baby? Is there anything we should know to be better parent?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Melanie,

      In a parent and child relationship, the adventurous Rat child could find life in a strictly controlled rooster household can be a little tense at times and there could be restlessness to their relationship although the Rooster parent will be a good influence by enforcing their rules which will help the Rat learn. There will be a good relationship between these two animals.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Goat parent will admire the resourceful nature that is often found around the Rat but their easy and carefree manner can worry the Rat at times. The two animals will love each other very much but relations between them will need to be kept calm.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. My husband and I are both earth monkeys. We don’t have any children yet but we are planning to. We want a good compatibility with our children. We plan on having a dragon baby but is compatible with a monkey and a dragon?

        1. Hi Makoto,

          In a parent and child relationship, the Monkey parent will have a lot of respect for the young Dragons resourceful and enterprising nature and the young Dragon will develop very well because of the Monkey. There will be a very strong bond between these two animals.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  17. I am a 1984 rat married to a 1985 ox, and we are expecting a rat child this fall. How can we be the best parents? And I really want to hear your guidance to whether to try for a tiger, rabbit or dragon as our second child?

    1. Hi Tirll,

      In a parent and child relationship where they are both Rats, the parent will do as much as they can to lead the child in the right path; this will form an extremely strong relationship between the two. The child will flourish in the close, loving and caring atmosphere that the parent provides them with.

      In a parent and child relationship the Ox parent will take pride in the young Rats resourceful and imaginative nature and will do all that they can to encourage the young Rats many skills. These two animals will have a very close relationship.

      I would recommend taking a look at our online Feng Shui reports for more advice on both of your Chinese animals compatibility between the 12 animals.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  18. My partner is male metal horse and I’m female wood pig. He is naturally quite dominant in character, yet I have never felt his dominance towards me as he always make sure I have a say. I however worry that our incompatibilities from what I have read might turn this relationship into an end. We ourselves find the incompatibilities charming, but maybe conflicts will come many years later?

    1. Hi Jenna,

      The relationship compatibility should be taken with a pinch of salt and should be used more as a guide to what you may need to workaround.

      I would not worry about problems coming later on as you are both aware of each others character.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  19. Hello, can I ask if is it possible for Pig Scorpio Woman and Monkey Sagittarius Man to have a long lasting relationship? I hope you can help. Thank you

    1. Hi Archie,

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals can make a strong and loving couple. They both have very lively natures and share many of the same interests and both will enjoy a passion for the finer things in life which they will aim to enforce in their relationship. The Monkey will admire the laid back nature of the Pig and will enjoy having a supportive partner. These two animals will have a very strong relationship with each other and will have much fun together.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  20. Hello! I am curious about the conflicting animal. Would a conflicting animal’s allies also cause problems for an individual? For example, if you are a rat, your conflicting animal is a horse. But a horse’s allies are tiger and dog. Would a rat also have difficulties with tigers and dogs as well, and thus should avoid/be aware of the allies as well?

    1. Hi Lam,

      This would not cause conflict to your Chinese animal so I would not worry about your conflicting animals allies.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  21. I’m a metal horse and my bf is a rabbit (1987) we are currently expecting first baby due August 2020(rat year) I have heard so many negative things, is this somethjng to be worried about?

    1. Hi Elizabeth,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Horse parent may sometimes have difficulty building a relationship with the young Rat but will admire their resourceful nature. Both animals mean well, but the Horse parent may have to accept that the Rat child is rather distant and will need to be led in the right direction.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Goat parent will admire the resourceful nature that is often found around the Rat but their easy and carefree manner can worry the Rat at times. The two animals will love each other very much but relations between them will need to be kept calm.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

        1. Sorry Elizabeth, I put the wrong animal.

          In a parent and child relationship, the Rabbit parent will have a lot of respect for the young Rats enthusiastic and imaginative nature and their fast ability to learn. The young Rat can be quite vigorous and energetic at times, which can be a bit too much for the easier going Rabbit parent.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  22. Hi, I’m a dragon and my partner is an ox (our relationship has been quite challenging at times) , our first born is a monkey. Would a second child be better suited as a rat or an ox? Thank you

    1. Hi Anastasia,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Dragon parent will be very happy about the young Rats eager and resourceful personality which will enable the Dragon parent to teach the young Rat a great deal in life. There will be a strong mutual understanding between these two animals and they will have a very strong love for each other.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Ox parent will take pride in the young Rats resourceful and imaginative nature and will do all that they can to encourage the young Rats many skills. These two animals will have a very close relationship.

      Kind regards,

      Danie

    2. Hi a rat child would be better and would be compatible with your monkey born child. The dragon, rat and monkey belong to the same trine in Chinese astrology and get along really well. Rats are also compatable with your ox partner as the rat is the ox secret friend. All the best xx

  23. If I am a pig; and snake is my enemy, should I not wear snake printed clothes? I love snake print designs but will I have bad luck if I wear a snake print dress for example?

    Thanks!! 🙂

    1. Hi Isabella,

      I would not recommend wearing images of snakes on your clothing. Snakeskin print should be fine to wear although I would check how you are feeling when wearing it.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  24. I am an Ox and my husband is a Rooster. We have one toddler boy who is a rooster as well. We are planning our second child. Would it be better for us to have a Rat or another Ox (next year)?

    1. Hi Pat,

      The Ox is very compatible with the Rat as is the Rooster although the Rat and Rooster will need to try a little more at times to get along.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Go for the ox year. If you’re looking to have more kids later on, I’d suggest the next one to be a dragon who’s into sports, good student, energetic kid (must be kept busy/productive) or snake who is intelligent, creative, moody at times, but nothing major. Will get along well with the parents. Encouragement will go a long way with them and with any child of course.

  25. I am a Metal Dog, and was told today to carry rabbit secret ally amulet for 2020. Also, have a jade stone with gold rat engraved, is it advisable for me to carry this too? Thank you,

  26. Hi,

    My boyfriend (ex) is a rooster and I’m a sheep. We just broke up a few days ago. Is there any way this relationship can still be fixed? Or should I give in on what he wants (wants to explore)? Thanks.

    1. Hi Aya,

      I’m sorry to hear about your break up and hope that you are ok.

      In a romantic relationship, both of these animals can learn a great deal from each other and the Goat will benefit greatly the Roosters more orderly nature. Their personalities are quite different and the Goat can be unsettled by the Roosters blunt nature. These two animals will need to be more tolerant of each other in order to succeed.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. I’m assuming your ex is born in ‘93 and you’re born in ‘91 or is he ‘81? Asking because a someone 26(7) is different from a 38(9) year old. If he’s born in ‘93, let him do his thing. He’s already letting you know he’s not looking to settle down. Not fair to force a monogamous relationship on him just because you’re wanting to be in one. Seems like you like him a lot since you’re showing interest to get back together. But you might have to wait or else he’ll end up resenting you in the relationship and probably stray since he never wanted to be in a relationship anyway and won’t take it seriously. If he wants to be in a relationship with you, he would be. He would pursue you and want to make it work. Since he’s not at this time, it’s clear he’s not interested in that at the moment. A relationship can’t be one sided.

  27. I am a sheep and my husband is a dragon. Is it good to have a rat baby or ox baby? Will it be better to have a baby in the rat year?

    1. Hi Jade,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Dragon parent will be very happy about the young Rats eager and resourceful personality which will enable the Dragon parent to teach the young Rat a great deal in life. There will be a strong mutual understanding between these two animals and they will have a very strong love for each other.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Goat parent will admire the resourceful nature that is often found around the Rat but their easy and carefree manner can worry the Rat at times. The two animals will love each other very much but relations between them will need to be kept calm.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  28. Hi!

    What are your thoughts on 2 dragons dating each other? My fiance and I are both dragons and one of the fengshui master told us that our signs are not compatible at all – It was one of the worse things I’ve ever heard.

    Any advice?

    1. Hi Emma,

      In a romantic relationship, there will be a lot of passion and fun between these two Dragons. These two Dragons will start their relationship full of aspirations and will be devoted to each other. As long as they can settle their differences and realize that they are both very dominant then they can be very compatible.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  29. I am a wood rat dating an earth horse. I know this is a least compatible match, but I’m wondering if you have words of hope for us. He likes to go off on his own which I’m getting used to, he’s also not as verbally affectionate. Those are the only issues I’ve seen so far.

    1. Hi S,

      These two animals can be a bit of an unsettled match in some circumstances but as long as they are both willing to accept each other straightforward and critical nature they will build a good relationship. The Rat will fall for the Horses energetic and sociable lifestyle and the two animals can have a lot of fun together for quite some time together, but the Horse is strong-minded and unpredictable which can put the Rat off as they appreciate the security and calm existence.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  30. Hi. What do you think of Metal Goat (Female) and Metal Monkey (Male) in a relationship and establishing a family together? Any advices/ points to note for a good and long lasting love relationship? Thanks.

    1. Hi Ann,

      In a romantic relationship these two animals are usually very attracted to each other. They are both laid back and there will be a great deal of fun and excitement between them. They both value each others qualities and there will be a great relationship between them.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi JieJie,

      In a romantic relationship, the preliminary attraction will be very strong. There will be a lot of passion and excitement between these two animals as they get to know each other especially as they both enjoy deep conversation. The Horse prefers a more lively life than the calm Snake although if they can reach an agreement on this, they can be a very compatible couple.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. The attraction might be well and dandy at first. You’ll have a way to make him feel desired and he’ll be appreciative sensually. But being all cozy up and not leaving the couch or interacting with other ppl can soon bore you. You tiring of the relationship will trigger his insecurities. He’ll soon try to wrap himself all over you (like a snake). But possessiveness and insecurity isn’t sexy to a horse. So communication and understanding is needed.

    1. Hi Charmaine,

      These two animals are very fond of each other’s qualities and strengths and will generally get along very well.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Pig child will respond very well to the Monkey parent’s lively and enthusiastic nature. There will be a very strong bond between these two animals which will be made stronger by their similar interests.

      As co-workers, both of these animals have a lot of admiration for each other and will go very far with a good success rate when they combine their talents and ideas between them. The Monkey will admire the Pigs obstinacy and the Pig can be a positive influence on the Monkey. These two animals will work very well together and will go very far in life.

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals can make a strong and loving couple. They both have very lively natures and share many of the same interests and both will enjoy a passion for the finer things in life which they will aim to enforce in their relationship. The Monkey will admire the laid back nature of the Pig and will enjoy having a supportive partner. These two animals will have a very strong relationship with each other and will have much fun together.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Luckily, most signs can get along well with many of the other signs. It has to do with more than just the year they’re born in. I also combine astrology birth charts. But going with Chinese astrology, I’d say the snake year would go well with the rooster (excitement), monkey (complementary), sheep (sensual), rabbit (mentally), dragon (sparks) and ox (comfortable). Maybe look into these signs. I’ve listed them from what I think would be best. So Rooster first, etc.

    1. Hi Adrianna,

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals are usually very attracted to each other. They are both laid back and there will be a great deal of fun and excitement between them. They both value each other’s qualities and there will be a great relationship between them.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

        1. Hi J,

          If you could tell me your Chinese animals, I can let you know if you are compatible with Rat children.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

    2. I’m assuming you’re born in ‘91 and him ‘92. Usually the monkey sign is on the go and looking to still explore. Being that he has the water element, it’ll add more of an emotional and sentimental monkey type. They like to be in relationships, not just a relationship. Find out if he’s wanting to be in a monogamous relationship or just dating around. They usually don’t settle down til they’re older. Even then it takes them a while to shake off their infidelity habits. He might good for courtship and a fun time.

  31. I’m a wood rat and he is a wood ox. Is our marriage compatible and will we find happiness? We argue a lot and we are unable to have a child, what can we do to improve our chances of becoming parents?

    1. Hi Hope,

      In the event of love, The Ox and Rat both have a lot of interest in their home life and will benefit from each other’s strengths. The Rat will encourage the Ox to try their hand at different activities to try and get the Ox to be more outgoing, the Ox will benefit from this and it will make life sail a lot more smoothly. These two animals will enjoy a great relationship.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Nori,

      In a romantic relationship, there will be a lot of passion between the Tiger and Dragon, there will also be a lot of excitement and they will have a great deal to share. The Tiger will value the Dragons truthful, secure and friendly nature. These two animals will live life to its full extent. Both like to dominate and have an inclination to say what is on their mind. If the Tiger and Dragon are to prevent too much disagreement they should decide on who does what in their home. Despite the occasional disruptive moment, these two animals can make a great pair.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  32. I am a horse and my girlfriend is a monkey. We have recently expressed our love for each other. Zodiac signs indicate our relationship may not last. She is also 2 black soil and I am 7 red metal. Can we use the telationship strengths from 9 ki to help the relationship weakneses in zodiac? I do love her dearly.

    1. Hi,

      In a romantic relationship, the Horse will be drawn to the Monkeys pleasurable and encouraging nature and will enjoy many of the same interests as the Monkey. The Horse will be concerned by the Monkeys tendency to keep their thoughts and feeling to themselves although they can easily over come this. These two animals will do very well in a relationship.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  33. I’m a female rooster 1993 and my ex is a male rabbit 1987. We’ve been together for 2 years before we broke up, due to – lot of our differences,and that was 5 months ago. Now i am thinking of flying to his country and pay him a visit to maybe talk and rekindle. They said crystal and charms work for conflict animal union/relationship, any advice on this?

    1. Hi Hailey,

      In a romantic relationship, the Rabbit will have a lot of admiration for the Roosters genuine and arranged ways. The Rooster likes to stay active and to say what is on their mind while the Rabbit prefers a more settled life and can often get hurt by the Roosters upfront nature. Both animals need to settle their differences for this relationship to work.

      A good crystal for romance is a piece of rose quartz although you could carry Fire and earth coloured crystals. You should try and wear earth objects like ceramic jewellery and quartz crystal such as some nice big diamonds or quartz beads.

      I hope this helps and hope you and your ex-partner work things out.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Hopefully he’ll pay for your flight or help pay for it even if you can afford yourself. It’s the principle. I would advise to just let this one go or it’s going to be many years of on and off agains. Since you guys are opposite zodiac years, there will be an attraction there or a feeling something being there, but in the end there won’t be similar wants. Of course you can learn about each other such as strengths and weaknesses and learn how to tolerate each other. But you’ll just learn you both want different things out of life. I’m self projecting a bit since I’m coming from being in a rabbit’87(me)/rooster’81 relationship of 7 years of off and on and off and on relationship. Monogamous then open relationship and then monogamous and then just friends. With cheating and breaking up and then getting back together moments stuck in there. No marriage out of it or promise of something stable in the future. We still talk, but as friends. But now this current year he’s been talking about working it out again. And I’m somewhat interested, but taking it slow and go with the flow. See what I mean. It’ll be year 8. Our friends and family are sick of us lmao they thought we’d be married years ago, so they’re over our relationship. But of course you guys do what you like. Communication, understanding and agreement is key. You might like to travel and explore. He might sometime soon want to be routed in one place. Travel to visit, but not to move.

      1. Hi L,

        Any thoughts on a metal monkey (female) and fire snake (male). We’re in a long-term, settled relationship and we have both agreed we’re the love of each other’s lives and that we both want to stay together for life. Just wondering if there are any zodiac things to take into consideration.

        Thanks!

        1. Hi Kel,

          In a romantic relationship, these two animals are very well suited. Both of them are very curious and will be enchanted by the other prosperous and profound qualities and will build a very close bond through this. Both animals complement each other and they have a great understanding together.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  34. I’m earth dragon and I’ve been thinking of getting a dragon tattoo. Been doing some research, some say dragon brings prosperity and good luck but some say getting a tattoo of your own zodiac sign is bad luck. Please advise

    1. Hi Dragon girl,

      I could not see this causing any problems, personally.

      The Dragon will enjoy the company of another energetic and feisty Dragon. Although their strong-willed natures can sometimes cause problems, they will get on very well.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Edwin,

      In a romantic relationship, there is a strong attraction between the Dragon and Rabbit. Both animals are very zealous, sensual and compassionate and can mean so much to each other. The Dragon will show appreciation for the Rabbits confident and affectionate nature. There will be some differences they will need to resolve such as the Dragons desire for a more active lifestyle than the Rabbit, if they can resolve this then they can make a very good couple.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  35. Hi Michael, i enjoyed your article. I’m a water oz and my husband is an earth goat/ram. We love each other deeply and want a happy long term marriage but we bicker all the time. He sees things differently but neither is wrong. How can we get along better? Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Hannah,

      The best advice I can give is to work hard to make things work; if you are truly meant for each other, you will both make compromises to work around problems.

      There can be problems in a loving relationship between the Ox and Goat. The careful, thorough and organized Ox may get frustrated by the Goats unpredictable ways which can upset the Goats sensitive nature as Oxen are quite straight forward in what they say. These two animals have so many opposite interests and personality features but as long as they can settle their differences and learn to live in harmony together then they will benefit from a good relationship.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  36. I’m a metal monkey and my wife is a wood ox. We have been quarreling incessantly since we got married as we cant see eye to eye on many things. I do not like people born in the year of the snake, not sure why they are my secret fren. cheers

  37. I’m a Rooster and my boyfriend is a Rabbit. I truly love him but we disagree with most things.

    Should i still fight for this relationship to work?

    1. Hi Hailey,

      If you love your boyfriend and see a future with him, I would definitely fight for your relationship.

      In a romantic relationship, the Rabbit will have a lot of admiration for the Roosters genuine and arranged ways. The Rooster likes to stay active and to say what is on their mind while the Rabbit prefers a more settled life and can often get hurt by the Roosters upfront nature. Both animals need to settle their differences for this relationship to work.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Keith,

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals are usually very attracted to each other. They are both laid back and there will be a great deal of fun and excitement between them. They both value each other’s qualities and there will be a great relationship between them.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Mimi,

      In a romantic relationship, the Snake and Rabbit will find much happiness together. They both enjoy a quiet and peaceful lifestyle and will have a lot of interests that they can share with each other. They will support each other at all times and the Rabbit will admire having such a considerate and calm partner. They will be a great match.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  41. My husband is an Ox and I’m a Snake. Would a Pig baby be in conflict with us? We’re debating between a Pig baby (2018) or Rat baby (2019), then hoping to have a second child in Ox (2021) year. Should we aim for a Pig baby or Rat baby? What’s better?

  42. I’m a earth snake and my partner is a fire rabbit. We are thinking of having a second child in 2019. My first son was born as fire monkey in 2016. Should I wait to?

    1. Hi Serine,

      The hardest part of this relationship whether business or love is their inability to agree on anything. Although can work if you both work hard at resolving your apparent flaws.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hello.
        I came across your page and I find it very interesting. May I know the compatibility on my current relationship for more than a year now. I am a fire tiger man. She is earth snake woman. Positive or negative comments I’m all ears. Thank you!

        1. Hi Sam,

          In a romantic relationship, the Tiger will be attracted to the calm and appealing nature although this can be blocked out at times by the fact that the Tiger yearns for action while the Snake would much prefer a calmer lifestyle. These two animals will need to accept their differences and put them aside in order for this relationship to work.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  44. Someone in told my dad that it is lucky to have three dragons in the family, but I recently learned from someone that it wasn’t due to the fact that dragonsdon’t get along with other dragons. Is the latter true? (Cuz, my mom, my sister and I are dragons)

  45. I am a rabbit, and I was told to keep a jade horse with me. However, it is not my secret friend or ally. Please tell me why I was recommended to keep a horse with me.

    1. Hi Ridhi,

      The Rabbit should carry a Dog Protection talisman. I’m not sure why you were recommended to use a Horse charm, I’m afraid.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  46. Please help me what animal sign should I keep, since me and my longtime leave-in partner,were not compatible with each other’s animal sign. I’m Ox,and his a Sheep ! His an attitude kind of a man to his partner,but i love him . I pray hard to keep my love and the relationship ’til now.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Melinda,

      If you love someone, you can make anything work, even if your two animals are not compatible.

      As an Ox, your most compatible animal is the Rat.

      I hope this helps, Melinda.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  47. My boy friend is fire sheep born on 1/2/1968 and I’m a Metal dog born on 8/22/1970.
    What can we carry or place in the house to get along well?
    We are having difficulties understanding and communicating.

    1. Hi Jin,

      Here is an extract from our Academy software – In a romantic relationship, these two animals may seem to find the future a bit challenging. The Goat will admire the Dogs affectionate ways but they may find it hard to build a good relationship at times. Both of these animals can be worriers and will need a more laid-back approach in order for their relationship to blossom.

      I would recommend carrying your own personal protection animals on you both.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Hi .. im metal horse (1990) and my boyfriend snake (1989) and we been together almost 9 year ..are we compatible, and we decide to get married this year of rat ..

      1. Hi GG,

        In a romantic relationship, the preliminary attraction will be very strong. There will be a lot of passion and excitement between these two animals as they get to know each other especially as they both enjoy deep conversation. The Horse prefers a more lively life than the calm Snake although if they can reach an agreement on this, they can be a very compatible couple.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

  48. hi! is it a good idea to put a tattoo of your secret friend?
    mine is rabbit and my bf’s horse.
    for the horse they say if the front feet is up it is lucky. is it true?
    thnks

    1. Hi Grace,

      I can’t see it doing any harm. I guess it would be similar as having a keyring of your protection animal!

      I’d love to see pictures of the finished tattoo’s 🙂

      Yes, the Horse with raised feet signifies luck.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  49. Hi, my zodiac is a rabbit but had given birth to a rooster boy. What can I do to avoid conflicts with my own son and not let this conflict animal affect our relationship?

    1. Hi,

      Here is the synopsis from our Academy of Feng Shui software for the relationship between the rooster and rabbit:

      Most books will tell you this combination will never work. Although in our opinion in more mature relationships whether personal or business they can make this work but hard work is needed on both sides. The biggest problem to overcome is the fact that Roosters arrogance will aggravate the Rabbit.

      It can be challenging at times but when you are aware of potential problems, you can both work hard to overcome the problems.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  50. What does it mean if you have started a user account in your enemy sign year if you are a Tiger and the account was started in 2013-07-07

    Is it bad luck or does it have the opposite effect in this case? For some reason.

    1. Im a water monkey and my husband is fire tige i know were a bad match we have also good moments is there any chance this can work ?

      1. Hi Monkey girl,

        In a romantic relationship, the Tiger will be delighted with the Monkeys constant desire for fun and energetic nature, although problems can soon occur when they get to know each other better. The Monkey likes to keep a track on whatever is going on around them and the Tiger could start to dislike the Monkeys need to question everything. With both of these animals being strong-willed and their desire to hold sway could cause some difficult times. In my opinion, you have everything in both of your power to make this a great relationship.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

  51. Is it good to have a baby nextyear for a snake person to contradict misfortune event for 2019 unlucky year for snake year? Any knowledge about this guys? Thanks

    1. Hi,

      Although the Snake will be in conflict with the Pig, you should not see problems with childbirth. I am in the process of writing the 2019 animal predictions and will be publishing them in November so be sure to check back.

      If you are flexible, it may be worth waiting until the year of the Rat although I would not let it bother you too much.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  52. So I’m a monkey and my allies are the rat, dragon, and snake. If I have figurines, is there a certain placement you’d recommend? I just got these cute dragons from a furniture store and have no idea where to place them. Please help…

    1. Hi Jab,

      I would display them in your main living room or at a desk if you have one in your home. They are best placed where you spend the most time.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  53. I am born in year of horse and i have 3 bosses who are born in year of Rat, Ox and Rabbit.

    I am afraid we will clash at work. No matter what I do, my actions will always be seen as no good to them. What can I do do to mitigate this incompatibility?

    1. Hi Andy,

      The best thing you can do is to read up on their personalities and try to pick up on their hobbies, interests, and strengths to connect with them. My Dad and I are both in conflict with each other’s Chinese Animals and have a great relationship so I would not worry too much about this.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  54. Rabbit here! I’m glad to say I’ll be celebrating 9 years together with my sheep. My brother a Dragon his fiance an ox. I enjoy these sites and I appreciate you staying not to take it extremely seriously. I know some can. Thank you!

    1. Hi,

      This would not cause a problem eating pork although this also comes down to personal preference.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Sallie,

      Ideally, you should cover the mirrored areas for the bed up if possible. For the front and back door, I would recommend placing something in between to slow the flow of energy down.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  55. I placed my cures and enhancers as directed (or so I thought) in February. I was having difficulites before placing my kit out, and things only got worse. Then one night I couldn\’t sleep thinking about a enhancer my husband moved, so I got up to fix it and for some reason went back to reading the instruction sheet only to realize I had placed a few cures and enhancers incorrectly. I immediatly made the correct adjustments and I couldn\’t believe how quickly some negative situations I was in improved, drastically!
    I hit a minor snag with a issue now and my first thought is one of my cures must have been moved!
