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 is 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 conflicted 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. Anyone interested in the British Royal Family?

    I just started watching The Crown, whose most interesting storyline is that of Princess Margaret. Born in 1930, she was a horse.

    Horses are least compatible with rats. But they’re also not that compatible with other horses.

    Guess who else was a horse? Margaret’s husband, Antony Armstrong-Jones (also born in 1930). They ended up divorcing.

    Horses are most compatible with tigers, dogs, and sheep.

    Margaret’s sister, the Queen (born 1926), is a tiger and the two got along quite well.

    Guess who else was a tiger? Peter Townsend (born 1914), Margaret’s first lover.

    Oh, what could have been.

    1. Hi,

      That’s a great analysis you’ve done on the Royal Family and makes a very interesting read 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  2. Hi Daniel,

    I’m a Metal Goat and my husband is a Fire Snake. We are expecting a child end of this year (Ox). I have read that the Goat and Ox will clash.. What can I expect out of this relationship? Any advice on how to navigate through this? Now I’m worried!

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Sarah,

      As a Goat, having an Oxen child is not necessarily a bad thing. The Ox can find the goats personality quite difficult to understand at times which can cause relations between them to be a bit weak if no effort is made from an early age. To get the most out of the Ox child, the Goat will need to accept that the Ox is very independent and has a tendency to be stubborn.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  3. Hi, I am a dragon born in 1988 and my husband is a rat born in 1984. We have a monkey son born in 2016. We are looking to conceive but we may miss the ox year. Are we more compatible with the ox baby or a tiger baby(2022)? Will I get along well with the ox baby or tiger baby? Thank you!!

    1. Hi Daisy,

      Your family should have a similar relationship overall between the three of your and an Ox or Tiger so I would recommend going with what works out best for you with regards to timelines.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  4. Hi Daniel shifu,

    Would love to seek your advise. I’m a water rooster(93) and my spouse is a earth dragon(88). We are thinking of a first child next year. Having an Ox(2021) baby is too soon however we are thinking whether which is more compatible for our first child?

    1) a tiger (2022)
    2) a rabbit (2023)
    3 a dragon(2024)

    Ideally I want a rabbit or dragon first child born baby however i am afraid it might clash with my me or my spouse.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Josephine,

      As a Dragon, your husband is compatible with all three animals and as a Rooster, you can also look forward to lovely relationships with all three animals although I would read below to help you decide.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rooster parent will have much pride in the enterprise and pioneering nature of the young Tiger although they can both be high spirited and independent which can cause a clash in personalities. The Rooster parent has an appreciation for planning and may not feel comfortable with the Tiger child’s desire to act on impulse. These two animals will be able to reach agreement although they will have a few difficult moments.

      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.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank you daniel for the prompt reply!!!

        Most likely we will plan for a dragon baby, however if things don’t along our way. How about a snake baby for our first born child? Would it clash with our zodiac( rooster and dragon)

        Looking forward for your advice😊

        1. Hi Josephine,

          In a parent and child relationship, the Dragon parent will be a good influence on the shy snake child and will do a lot to make the young Snake a lot more confident. There will be a great relationship between these two animals.

          In a parent and child relationship, the Rooster parent will do a great deal to encourage and support the Snake child and will usually see very good results because of this. These two animals will form a great friendship.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  5. Hi Daniel!

    I’m a 1991 Sheep and my husband is 1987 rabbit. We’re planning to have our first kid in 2022 which will be a tiger baby. I know sheep and tiger aren’t a great match but at least there’s a rabbit there to buffer. Just want to reach out and tickle your brain cells a bit 😉

    1. Hi Belinda,

      In a parent and child relationship, relations can sometimes be a bit unpredictable. The young Tiger has a lot of love for their parent but can be quite a handful for their Goat parent. The young Tiger requires a lot of gentle encouragement and support, the Goat parent must be willing to accept and enforce this for the relationship to be kept peaceful.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rabbit parent will do everything they can to support the young Tigers enthusiastic and questioning nature and guide them through their academic years. The Rabbit parent may sometimes despair of the Tiger child’s headstrong nature, although there will be a good level of respect and understanding between the two animals.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  6. Hi, I am a horse (1990) and my partner is a ox (1985), we have a son who is a pig (2019) and we are thinking of trying another baby. Would tiger or rabbit be better for us?

    1. Hi Yoana,

      All three of you are not in conflict with the Tiger or Rabbit so both would be a good choice for you all 🙂

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank you so much for your reply. I really appreciate it 🙂

        Which of the two signs would have a better relationship with my pig son?

        1. Hi Yoana,

          The Pig gets on well with both the Rabbit and Tiger so I would go with whichever animals works best for you 🙂

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  7. Sifu, my husband is a dragon and I’m a rabbit. We have a pig girl and thinking to add another baby soon, possibly tiger baby. Will this going to be ok? Thanks

    1. Hi Anna,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Dragon parent will think highly of the young Tigers enthusiastic nature. With these two animals sharing many of the same interests, there will be a great bond between them.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rabbit parent will do everything they can to support the young Tigers enthusiastic and questioning nature and guide them through their academic years. The Rabbit parent may sometimes despair of the Tiger child’s headstrong nature, although there will be a good level of respect and understanding between the two animals.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  8. Hi.

    Im ox (85) my partner is pig (83). We’re planning to have baby next year 2022 (tiger). Will that be compatible?

    1. Hi Nana,

      The Pig and Tiger will have a good relationship together.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Ox parent will take pride in the young Tigers innovative and imaginative nature although the Ox parent can find the young Tiger a bit of a handful at times. The Ox parent is somewhat reserved whilst the young Tiger is always searching for new experiences and is forever active. They can both be strong-minded which may lead to conflict. The two animals will try hard to build a mutual understanding but this can be a bit hard to reach from time to time.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  9. Hi there,

    My spouse and I are both metal monkeys. We have an earth dog child and likely if we have a second child the child will be a water(?) tiger. I know monkeys and tigers do not get along (my mother is a tiger) but dogs and tigers do. If you have any advice on our situation, monkeys raising a water tiger…that would be much appreciated ! We get along really well with our dog child, and I am concerned about unintentional favoritism.

    1. Hi Jenny,

      At first, the Tiger will find the Monkeys company most enjoyable and will find them very interesting, but their competitive natures and character differences will eventually get the better of them.

      In a parent and child relationship, these two animals will generally get on very well. The Monkey parent will admire the young Tigers innovative and imaginative nature. The young Tiger will show their independent side at times which can cause clashes although there will be a good bond between these two animals.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  10. Hi Daniel. Would love to know your thoughts. I’m a rat (84) and my husband is an ox (85). Our son is also a rat (2020) and we are thinking of a second child. So potentially a tiger (2022) or rabbit (2023). Another ox this year may be too soon!

    Based on our current family make up, would a tiger or rabbit second child be better as a sibling to our first child. And how about for us as parents? Thank you!

    1. Hi Am,

      Out of a Tiger and Rabbit, the Rabbit will be a better match for The Rat and Ox.

      I hope this helps 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank you Daniel!!

        If we did have a tiger baby is there anything we need to look out for. I’m a rat (84) and husband ox (85). And my son (so baby’s brother) is a rat (2020). Should we be concerned about major conflicts? The siblings not getting along etc?

        Thank you so much.

        1. Hi Amabel,

          The Rat and Tiger have a lot in common; they are active, outgoing and creative people which will form a really good relationship between the two of them.

          In a parent and child relationship, the Rat parent will try to encourage their child’s imaginative and creative way of thinking although the Rat may find the Tigers sense of independence a bit of a challenge at times.

          In a parent and child relationship, the Ox parent will take pride in the young Tigers innovative and imaginative nature although the Ox parent can find the young Tiger a bit of a handful at times. The Ox parent is somewhat reserved whilst the young Tiger is always searching for new experiences and is forever active. They can both be strong-minded which may lead to conflict. The two animals will try hard to build a mutual understanding but this can be a bit hard to reach from time to time.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

          1. Hi Daniel

            I am so sorry it’s me again. I realised I probably have a more important question to ask. And completely understand if you don’t have time to respond. I am already very grateful for your generosity.

            I would love your advice on our family unit now. Would you be able to advise the good things and challenges of rat parent-rat child, ox parent-rat child, and rat and ox compatibility as a couple – so we can best support our family unit.

            Thank you so so so much.

            Warmest regards and hope you are well and safe in this time.
            Amabel

  11. Hello Sifu Daniel, my husband and I were ( 1991 ) Sheeps. Our eldest daughter is also Sheep, born 2015 . Now if we were having Ox baby this year, having pregnancy now, got any problem? How to solve if there is issue with this?

    1. Hi Ceryn,

      As a Goat, having an Oxen child is not necessarily a bad thing. The Ox can find the goats personality quite difficult to understand at times which can cause relations between them to be a bit weak if no effort is made from an early age. To get the most out of the Ox child, the Goat will need to accept that the Ox is very independent and has a tendency to be stubborn.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  12. Hello! My wife and I are both water monkeys. We are planning to try having a baby soon. What are your thoughts about our compatibility with a water rabbit, earth dragon, and a fire horse? And are elements a huge factor as well?

    Thank you! And thank you for always answering all our questions. You are awesome! Have a blessed day!

    1. Hi Jordan,

      The best match for you both would be a Rat, Dragon or Snake as these are your most compatible animals. The Rabbit, Dragon and Horse will also work well. The element will have play a role in this although the main factor will be the animal.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  13. Hi I came across this article and have a few questions. Me a dragon and my partner a dog is 6 years apart. It’s said that we are not good for one another. We want to get marry but I am scared this can bring bad luck once we tied the knot. Please help me understand this. Thank you.

    1. Hi Malissa,

      In a romantic relationship the Dragon will value the loyal and caring Dog but will find it hard to deal with their anxious nature or to realize that the Dog need someone who is prepared to listen. Again, a lot of care will be needed to become compatible.

      I am a Dragon and my father is a Dog and we have a great relationship. As long as you are aware of potential conflicts, you can both work to resolve them.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  14. Hello, I want to be Anon, but I left my ex husband together for 7 years married for 2 months, he’s a dragon and Gemini, I am a Metal Goat and Libra October 3, my boyfriend now is a Fire Tiger and the same birthday as me but 5 years older. He does call me out on my weaknesses and it’s been ups and downs. As per my career I don’t know what I’d like to do for myself and currently am employed in a home improvement store. I just would like some advice with any of the info I have stated. Thanks so much.

    1. Hi K,

      In a romantic relationship, there will be an incredible amount of passion and excitement and these animals will have a lot of traits to share with each other. The Horse and Tiger are constantly active and will always have a huge variety of interests and activities to fill their time. These two animals will receive a lot of enjoyment out of life, especially as they both love to travel and socialize. Both of these animals are up-front by nature and are very strong-willed which can cause the Horse and Tiger to clash with each other. They will mean a considerable amount to each other and will make a very successful couple.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

        1. Hi K,

          Sorry, I sent the wrong analysis.

          In a romantic relationship, the Goat and Tiger can find a lot of happiness together. These two animals are both adoring and fun-loving people who will share many great times together. The Tiger will appreciate the Goats helpful, loving and encouraging nature and these two animals will share many of the same interests with each other. As long as they can both control not to squander their finances, the Goat and Tiger can make a good match.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  15. I’m an earth dragon (88) and my wife a fire rabbit (87). I find ourselves very opposites by nature..we tend to disagree most of the time and we both have a different drive to life. it gets boring to me especially when it comes to wanting to reach the top. She tends to kinda slow me down because of fear. We both have 2 kids. An earth dog and a metal rat. How can both me and my wife be on the same page

    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.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thanks for the information. Do all rabbits born in (87) share the same characteristics compared to their upbringing or the month they were born ?

  16. Hello,

    My husband and I are both metal sheep. We are welcoming our baby metal ox in August. Being that the signs are conflicting, how will this parent-child relationship be like, and what can we do to promote harmony?

    Thank you,
    j

    1. Hi J,

      The Ox can find the goats personality quite difficult to understand at times which can cause relations between them to be a bit weak if no effort is made from an early age. To get the most out of the Ox child, the Goat will need to accept that the Ox is very independent and has a tendency to be stubborn.

      I hope this helps and wish you the best of luck with the pregnancy 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  17. Hi Daniel,

    My partner and I are both fire rabbits. We would love to welcome a child this year and another sibling for him/her in the upcoming years (if possible, their ages not too far apart).

    What signs are (most) compatible to rabbit parents? Let’s say, ox/tiger/rabbit/dragon/snake? And which two signs will get along as siblings too?

    Hope my question isn’t too difficult… Thank you!

    1. Hi Fanny,

      The Rabbit can enjoy a good relationship with the Tiger, Rabbit and Snake. A Dragon child could be a little troublesome although nothing major.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  18. Hi, I found your articles are really interesting.
    I’m a metal horse, and my husband is a fire tiger. We’re planning to have our first baby next year which is the year of water tiger.

    My question, is that ok to have 2 tigers in one family? I have heard so many things that 2 tigers are not go along well and bring a bad luck for the family.

    Thanks in advance.
    Regards,
    T

    1. Hi Tessa,

      In a parent and child relationship, The Tiger parent will try to encourage the young Tigers interested nature and will teach them well. They will have many interests that they can share and enjoy with each other but the young Tiger does not like to take orders which is a typical tiger mannerism, which can lead to a disagreement between the two Tigers. The parent and child will have a lot of love for each other but relations may be unstable at times.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Karen,

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals will enjoy a great relationship together. Both animals desire a safe, steady and serene lifestyle; they both have many interests that they can share together and also have a love for the finer things in life making them a very happy couple. The Snake will enjoy the kind and thoughtful nature of the Goat. These two animals are very well suited.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  19. Thank you for sharing this! I have been learning a lot about Chinese zodiac signs and enemy signs.

    I myself am a Water Monkey and I recently married a Water Rooster. We seem very compatible and have a deep connection. We went to high school together and reconnected after 10 years.

    I am fairly passive in most situations, although I do stand my ground with my husband on certain things I find very important in life. My husband on the other hand can get a bit controlling and likes to take the lead as well as feels obligated to do so in our many day to day life situations.

    I was wondering, how compatible are Water Monkies and Water Roosters? As well as is this a common trait for a rooster to be a bit on the controlling side? If so do you have any advice for Water Monkey and Water Rooster couples?

    Thank you for you help! It’s so kind of you to help others with the Chinese zodiac. I am very grateful for your service!

    Blessings!

    The Water Monkey

    1. Hi,

      No problem at all 🙂

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals both love to socialize and are very outgoing in nature but they will need to resolve some issues in order to have a successful relationship. The Roosters organized lifestyle will need to be accepted by the Monkey in order for happiness.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,

        This is the water monkey again. So an update. My husband was born January 1993 and I did the math for Chinese zodiac and it would make him a Water Monkey like as myself.

        What is the compatibility for Water Monkeys?

        Thank you again!

        The Water Monkey

        1. Hi,

          In a romantic relationship, two Monkeys will enjoy a very happy and peaceful relationship. They enjoy the same activities and share the same interests which will cause the relationship to be filled with fun and excitement. Each Monkey will encourage and support the other animal.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  20. Can a person born in horse year keep a horse figurine at home ? It is a fengshui red color horse. If yes, where and which direction

    1. Hi Sreya,

      That will be fine to place a Horse figure and I would place this in the southwest for 2021.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Lito,

      I would not recommend placing an Ox figurine as a Goat as this is your conflict animal.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  21. Hi there,

    I hope all is well with you. I was wondering if you could tell me if my family is compatible:

    I’m a fire rabbit (1987)
    Partner earth goat (1979)
    1st daughter: fire monkey (2016)
    2nd daughter: earth dog (2018)

    And will my two daughters have a close bond relationship?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Thien,

      The Rabbit, Goat and Dog are all very compatible with each other and the Monkey is also not in clash with the other animals so overall, the four should all get along well.

      These two animals have a lot of differences but the Monkey has a lot of admiration for the Dog and their relations can be very good as well as beneficial to each other.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

  22. Hello thanks for your precious insights and much appreciated that you do take the time to follow up with everyone.

    I am a woman water dog married to a fire tiger and we have a 2yo earth dog daugther and planning to have another baby in the year of water tiger. Are we all compatible as a family? I’m concern if it turns out to be a baby tiger boy, will 2 male tigers clash? Thanks for your input!

    1. Hi Anton,

      The Tiger and Dog are allies and two male Tigers will have a good bond, making all found family members a great match.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Ro,

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals will learn a great deal from each other. The Rooster will admire the Pigs positive nature and will become less forceful because of this. Both of these animals value their home life and will share a great deal of the same interests. They will enjoy a very long and happy relationship together

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Earth helps metal so that is positive and compatible . the boar (pig) is a feminine sign and so is the rooster so that is another positive . even numbered years are masculine and odd numbered years are feminine. The other consideration in the compatibility of two people is the zodiac sun sign , example Libra and Gemini , the most important thing is how comfortable you feel with the other person . if you feel comfortable with them (and they with you ) then signs don’t matter that much , right ?

    3. Hello,

      I am a water pig and my husband is an earth sheep. This year we welcomed our new baby a metal rat. What will the parent-child relationship be like?

      1. Hi Auntie,

        In a parent and child relationship, the Rat child will respond very well to the kind and affectionate guidance received from the Pig parent. They can share a lot of interest and enjoy the rewards of this; there will be a very strong bond between them.

        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

  23. Hi,
    My husband is a Earth horse and I’m a fire rabbit, we are expecting our little Ox in May. What are your thoughts? Thank you in advance 🙂

    1. Hi Dottie,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Horse parent will show much admiration for the Ox child’s methodical and organized nature, although the Horse parent will not always appreciate the Ox child’s different outlooks and interests which can cause problems between these two animals at times. Both animals will try, but this relationship will need a lot of peace and monitoring.

      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.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. I am a tiger, my husband is a dragon, I have a daughter who is a pig. We are trying for another baby. Will an Ox be more compatible with our family or a tiger?

        Thanks!

        1. Hi Nat,

          Both a Tiger and Ox would work well with your family so I would recommend going with what works best with your timeline.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  24. Hi my partner is Snake my daughter is a Rat & my Son is a Dog im Also Rat woman Do you think we are compatible ? Thanks in advanve ☺️

    1. Hi Jemmelyn,

      The Rat, Snake and Dog are not in conflict with each other and should not cause issues among each other.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

        1. Hi Jemmelyn,

          The Snake and Rat are well suited in love. Both animals value their home life and are keen to combine their skills and resources and put them to good use. The Snake will become more sociable because of the Rats positive influence and will also appreciate the Rats warm and attentive nature. These two animals can make a great couple.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

    2. hello there, i was thinking about getting a tattoo based on chinese zodiac. can you recommend me how to choose? btw i am fire ox.. kinda interested in making dragon or snake

      1. Hi Angel,

        As an Ox, your compatible animal is the Rat. You are allied with the Snake so this would work well.

        I hope this helps.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

  25. It’s so funny.. as if it’s written for us! 😉
    Him tiger is totally completely my (PIG)) secret friend! I can’t make more of it haha although.. I wish, or better; WE would wish it was more than only that but really.. the timing is off and probably will be off for the next 15 years according to western progressed astrology! Slowly I start to accept that … but it’s hard. I’m really into western astrology but never heard this “secret friend part” which in fact describes it all between us in 2 words.. so spot on which makes me wonder how much more accurate chinese astrology might be 😉

    Btw, I love this “….although the most powerful ally…” yeah, I mean his girl is a horse you see 😉

  26. Hi! My boyfriend is a metal goat and I’m a water monkey. Do you think it’s a good match?

    Also, my mom is an ox and my dad is a dog. They are worried that my boyfriend will clash with them. What do you think?

    1. Hi Nica,

      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.

      These two animals have a lot of differences but the Monkey has a lot of admiration for the Dog and their relations can be very good as well as beneficial to each other.

      The Ox and Monkey have very different personalities but these two animals can be very compatible as well as mutually beneficial to each other.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Carl,

      The Ox can find the goats personality quite difficult to understand at times which can cause relations between them to be a bit weak. To have a good relationship, the older Goat will need to try to see things through the young Oxen’s perspective.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Sam,

      In a parent and child relationship the Horse parent will try to build up the young Goats self esteem as much as they possibly can and will usually be successful. There will be a very strong bond between these two animals although there will be the occasional disagreement when the Horse feels that the Goat need to put more effort into their activities. Overall there will be a very good compatibility.

      As co-workers, these two animals make a very good combination. The Horse will feel the need to dominate at times and will admire the Goats creative side. These two animals will work very well together and will go very far.

      In a romantic relationship there will be a lot of passion and liveliness. Both animals will support each other no matter what and will gain a great deal from their relationship together. The Horse will admire the Goats considerate and caring nature. Between these two animals, the relationship will be full of joy and love.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,

        My spouse’s child is a goat, and I am a metal monkey. I am often responsible for parenting this little guy, and I absolutely adore him. However, I’ve always been very independent (even as a small child), and I find his fearfulness and lack of independence trying at times.

        Any tips on how a monkey can be a good parent to a goat? Would greatly appreciate it!

        Thanks,
        K

        1. Hi K,

          The Goat thinks very highly of the energetic and resourceful Monkey and relations between these two animals will be very good.

          In a parent and child relationship, there will be a very close bond between the Goat child who will receive a great deal of encouragement from their Monkey parent as much as they can throughout life and will usually see very good results of their efforts. There will be a very good relationship between these two animals with a lot of love.

          My advice would be to guide the young Goat through life and try to offer advice as this will help them develop and learn in later life.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

      2. It is a romantic relationship yes. Thank you very much Daniel. Anything specifically for the metal horse & metal goat?

        1. Hi Sam,

          The Goat and Horse are secret friends and will overall have a great relationship together. There will certainly be hiccups along the way but generally, they are a very good match.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

    1. Hi Clara,

      As a Monkey and Dog, the best choices would be the Rat, Snake, Horse and Rabbit. I would avoid the Dragon and Tiger as these are your conflict animals.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  27. I am a snake 1989 (earth) and my girlfriend 1992 ( water) is a monkey in the Chinese zodiac sign

    Are we compaible? Just curious

    1. Hi Shaun,

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals are very well suited. Both of them are very curious and will be enchanted by the others 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

  28. Hey i am a water rooster, i have Few people in my family with dog zodiac with whom i usually have passive clashes, any advice on how to deal with them,

    1. Hi Kyra,

      The Dog is not as spontaneous as the Rooster and it takes time for them to trust somebody. The Dog needs to give the Rooster the time to do this so they can enjoy a very good relationship together.

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rooster parent may not appreciate the sensitive and concerned nature of the young Dog. The young Dog needs love and patience and the Rooster parent will need to give them this. If they can learn to accept each other’s personalities, they can be very happy together.

      As co-workers, both of these animals will be very determined to make the most of their strengths but they both have different attitudes and styles which can cause occasional disruptions to the peace of these two animals. Generally these two animals will work well together.

      In a romantic relationship, the Dog will not have much patience for the Roosters energetic ways and will be happy to tell them so. These two can be too forthright which will need to be resolved if these two animals are to form a loving relationship.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Hi Kyra,

      I am planning to get engaged, but my partner and I have incompatible signs and I am concerned to go forward. We are a fire rabbit and fire rat. I do not want to bring bad luck. Any suggestions>

      Thanks so much!!!!

      1. Hi Shan,

        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

  29. Hi. I’m a fire tiger and my husband is wood ox. We have an earth dog son. We were wondering which, a metal ox, water tiger, or water rabbit , would be the most compatible match for a second child. Thank you!

    1. Hi,

      Out of the Ox, tiger and Dog, a Rabbit child would work the best with your family.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank you for the reply. Other than the rabbit are there any other compatible siblings for our dog son? To remind you we are tiger and ox parents with dog son. Thank you so much.

        1. Hi,

          The Dog is most compatible with the Tiger, Horse and Rabbit and would not conflict with your Chinese animals.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

      2. Thank you! What is the relationship like between ox and dog? (Parent/child, siblings. ) Will they get along? Thanks again!

        1. Hi,

          The Ox has a lot of respect for the Dog’s many fine qualities but both possess a sense of stubbornness and relations between these two animals may not always be the easiest because of this.

          In a parent and child relationship, the Ox parent will often encourage the young Dog, although the Ox parent will not always fully appreciate the Dogs sensitive nature. These two animals will need to handle their relations carefully and with contemplation.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  30. What to do if your spouse’s animal sign is OX and you’re Sheep. Kids are Horse, Rooster, Ox and Dragon, mother in law’s also an Ox who’s living with them?? I really need help, please give suggestions 🙁

    1. Hi Rowie,

      It can be very hard to have a family where all of the animals are in harmony with each other and the best thing to do is to read up on the characteristics of each animal and try to make allowances for each others personality traits.

      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.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Shaun,

      In a romantic relationship, these two animals make a brilliant match. They both have style, classiness and very similar outlooks on life and interests. They both understand each other and will value the support from their other half. The Snake admires the Roosters sincerity and confidence and will be proud to have a capable and organized partner. These two animals are very well suited.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  31. Hi, I am a wood ox (1985) and my husband is a wood rat (1984). We have a mental rooster son (2017). Can you advise if it is best for us to have a mental ox kid (2021) or a water tiger kid (2022)? According to my research, my family need a water element to balance the energy. But, not sure if tiger year is really more compatible than ox. Please advise. Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Sothea,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Rat will feel very proud of the Monkey child’s imaginative nature and their ability to learn. The Rat will be very keen to encourage the young Monkey 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 Monkey child will respond very well to the Pig parent’s encouragement and guidance. There will be a very strong bond between these two animals which will be made stronger by long-range of similar interests.

      The Rooster and Ox admire a lot of the other animal’s qualities; the relationship can be a little bumpy at times but these two animals will generally get on well.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank you, Daniel, for your reply. If I understand correctly, you recommended a Monkey year for the child. However, Monkey is still too far to go. Which one of the following year you would recommend (Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake)? I am a wood Ox and my husband is a wood rat. My son is mental roaster. Thanks a lot.

        1. Hi Sothea,

          I would say that an Ox child would work well in your family.

          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.

          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.

          The Ox respects the Rooster for their order and efficiency and with similar interests; these two animals can form a very good relationship.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  32. Hi

    I am ox and my husband is Boar. this year has been particularly difficult for us. is there any recommendation for this combination?

    1. Hi Dash,

      In love, the Pig and Ox can make a great match. They both enjoy a calm and structured lifestyle and there will be much love between them. These two animals share a lot of the same interests and both enjoy being outdoors. The Ox will benefit from the friendly and sociable nature of the Pig and can become less forceful as a result. These two animals will find much happiness together.

      I would recommend taking a look at the annual Flying star analysis as this could be causing issues – https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/flyingstars2020.htm

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      I hope this helps.

  33. Hi there,

    my husband (Horse, 1990) and myself (Monkey, 1992) are looking to have our first child in the next couple of years but we are worried about having a Tiger (2022) child which may potentially clash with myself being a monkey. How is the parent-child relationship if we have an Ox/Tiger child, or should we wait it out to try for a Rabbit baby instead?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Horse parent will have a high regard for the young Tigers keen and daring nature. Both of these animals are always keen to learn new things and love to be involved in new things. The Horse and Tiger will enjoy a great relationship with each other.

      In a parent and child relationship, these two animals will generally get on very well. The Monkey parent will admire the young Tigers innovative and imaginative nature. The young Tiger will show their independent side at times which can cause clashes although there will be a good bond between these two animals.

      I would say that a Tiger child will work well with your family.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  34. I am a metal sheep woman born in 1991, birth time is in the inauspicious star ‘Gua su’. Even though I got quite a few proposals for arranged marriage from wealth men (Wood ox 1985 and wood rat 1984), I rejected them due to incompatibility. As a Virgo moon and Virgo rising , I am naturally very, very cautious of accepting men. I think with my high expectations I won’t find a suitable, congenial partner (Shen).

    Love marriage is not an option in my place. Also, I have trust issues hence I have very less friends and many I don’t trust normally as they are disloyal and insincere with me. We are simply incompatible. So I am a loner and keep my own counsel. As I am born in ‘Gua su’, will I get married to a congenial partner? I am repeating again, love marriage is not an option in my family and also due to my judgemental character , I label people as evil once I get to know their dark side. I hate dishonest people to the core.

    I was infatuated with a metal horse , Virgo Sun sign once but due to my fault finding nature, never pursued the relationship. Will I get married to a loving and understanding partner who jibes with my character?I seek emotionally compatible relationship not intellectual. My western sign is Gemini but I behave like my moon and rising sun which is Virgo. I am an introvert. Which Chinese zodiac animal if I marry, I will lead a happy, conjugal life?

    1. Hi Nevaeh,

      As a Goat/Sheep, your most compatible animal is the Horse and this would apply to any kind of relationship and not just in a loving romance. Your animal is also compatible with the Rabbit and Pig.

      As co-workers, these two animals make a very good combination. The Horse will feel the need to dominate at times and will admire the Goats creative side. These two animals will work very well together and will go very far.

      In a romantic relationship, there will be a lot of passion and liveliness. Both animals will support each other no matter what and will gain a great deal from their relationship together. The Horse admires the Goats considerate and caring nature. Between these two animals, the relationship will be full of joy and love.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  35. Hi I was born in year of female horse 1990 and my friend is female pig year 1995. Can our friendship last longer? Any advice?

    1. Hi Roosha,

      The Horse will admire the Pigs amiable and laid back nature. Relations between these two animals will be very good.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  36. Hello! I’m a female fire tiger (86’) interested in dating a male metal monkey (80’). Can this be a suitable match? I’ve dated dragon, pig, and horse and none of the relationships worked out, although I had great compatibility with the horse as I felt a good connection. Is choosing a partner based on a Chinese zodiac animal and end all and be all kind of thing? I have tried dating dog but it didn’t go so far as two dates…thanks so much!

    1. Hi Mel,

      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.

      Choosing a partner based on their animal will certainly help but I would not recommend ruling out a potential partner because your animals are not compatible as this is only a guide and the two animals can do a lot to counteract the influences of each animal.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  37. Hi Daniel,
    We are contemplating having a second child in the year of the Ox (2021).
    I’m a metal rooster (1981) and my husband is an earth pig (1971) and we have an earth dog son (2018).

    Would an Ox sibling be a good fit for the family?

    Thanks for your insight,
    Noree

    1. Hi Noree,

      In a parent and child relationship, the Ox child will enjoy the organized Rooster household. The Rooster parent will get the young Oxen’s best qualities and will encourage them to become more outgoing and let them develop in their own way. The relationship between these two animals will be extremely good.

      In a parent and child relationship, the young Ox will respond well to their affectionate and conscientious Pig parent. There will be a great bond between these two animals which will be made a lot stronger by their similar interests.

      The Dog has a lot of respect for the Oxen’s many fine qualities but both possess a sense of stubbornness and relations between these two animals may not always be the easiest because of this.

      I would say that an Ox child would fit in well with your family 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,

        Thanks for the response!

        Can you provide any insight into the parent-child relationship between a rooster (1981) and a dog (2018)?
        The general consensus in both Chinese and Western astrology points to a difficult relationship.

        Thank you,
        Noree

        1. Hi Noree,

          In a parent and child relationship, the Rooster parent may not appreciate the sensitive and concerned nature of the young Dog. The young Dog needs love and patience and the Rooster parent will need to give them this. If they can learn to accept each other’s personalities, they can be very happy together.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  38. Hi, ox here! I read that there shouldn’t be two tigers in one household, one has to go. Is this true? Also, that it brings bad luck in health for one of the parents or parents end in divorce? Husband is tiger. We have a child born in the year of the pig. Would a water tiger be a clashing addition?

    1. Hi Katie,

      Relations between these two animals can be a bit tricky at times as both animals’ competitive natures can get the better of them, they will both try to rule and control the relationship which can cause arguments.

      In a parent and child relationship, The Tiger parent will try to encourage the young Tigers interested nature and will teach them well. They will have many interests that they can share and enjoy with each other but the young Tiger does not like to take orders which is a typical tiger mannerism, which can lead to a disagreement between the two Tigers. The parent and child will have a lot of love for each other but relations may be unstable at times.

      These two tigers will constantly have lots of ideas in the workplace but will both want to take the lead. Tigers have a competitive, independent and self-willed nature which will cause these two animals to want to work alone rather than work together if they can learn to combine the talents they can work together in the office.

      In a romantic relationship, the two energetic, outgoing and fun-loving Tigers can also be restless and will both want to dominate the relationship which can cause problems. Both Tigers will want to take control and when an argument occurs their blunt upfront natures will get the better of them. There will be a lot of care and compromise needed for this relationship to work.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel, thank you so much for your reply! What about the dynamic of a ox parent and a water tiger child relationship? How will their relationship be in terms of parent-child, household and connection as a family? It says ox and tiger are in the category of ‘worst match’. Will having a water tiger child be bad for the ox parent?

        1. Hi Katie,

          In a parent and child relationship, the Ox parent will take pride in the young Tigers innovative and imaginative nature although the Ox parent can find the young Tiger a bit of a handful at times. The Ox parent is somewhat reserved whilst the young Tiger is always searching for new experiences and is forever active. They can both be strong-minded which may lead to conflict. The two animals will try hard to build a mutual understanding but this can be a bit hard to reach from time to time.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

    2. Hi Daniel,
      I’m a wood ox (Gemini), my husband is a metal rooster(Virgo). Our first child is a wood sheep (Aires). We would like to have one more child. We might be late to have a ox born baby. Will having a tiger baby bring bad dynamics to the family, would it be wiser to wait for a rabbit baby?
      Thanks.

      1. Hi Katie,

        For Ox and Rooster parents and a Sheep child, the Snake is the best match between the three animals in the coming years as the other animals will have some clash between at least one parent.

        I hope this helps.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

        1. One more question, please. We probably won’t wait so long until the snake year comes. If we are to choose between a tiger and a rabbit, will rabbit fit our family better? Thank you!

          1. Hi Katie,

            The Rabbit is the conflict animal for your husband although, with a little work, this can be resolved. 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.

            The Ox and Rabbit have a great bond and will work very well together 🙂

            I hope this helps.

            Kind regards,
            Daniel

  39. I am a fire dragon and my husband is a horse. We have two children one is a monkey and another a horse. We would like to have a third child, what sign would be the most compatible with our family dynamics?

    1. Hi Ella,

      A Tiger child would work well in your family; the date range for this would be the 4th of February 2022 until the 3rd of February 2023.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  40. 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

  41. 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

  42. 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

        1. Hi Jac,

          Out of this combination of animals, the Snake worked out best for the three animals over the next few years.

          In a parent and child relationship, the Pig parent may not always be aware of the secluded and secretive ways of the young Snake but will do a great deal to encourage them and try to make them a lot less reserved. These two animals will share a lot of similar interests. Relations between these two animals will generally be very good.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  43. 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

  44. 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

  45. 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

  46. 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

  47. 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

  48. 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

  49. 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

  50. 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

  51. 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

  52. 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

  53. 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

  54. 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

  55. Hi! I’m a wood rat and my husband is a wood ox. If we had a metal ox child what should we think about?

    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

  56. 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

  57. 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

  58. 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

  59. 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

  60. 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

  61. 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. Hi Elizabeth,

          I’ve edited your comment so that your surname is not in it.

          I hope this helps.

          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

  62. 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

  63. 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

  64. 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.

  65. 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,

    1. Hi Masi,

      You can carry the Rat stone as this is not in conflict with the Dog.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  66. 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.

  67. 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

  68. 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

  69. 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

  70. 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.

  71. 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

  72. 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

  73. 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

  74. 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

  75. 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

  76. 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

  77. 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

    DOB 20/07/93

    1. Hi Jessie,
      As a water Rooster, your best match is a Dragon, Ox or Snake.
      Hope this helps and good luck.
      Kind regards

  80. I’m earth dragon man married to a fire rabbit woman. We have a 7month daughter earth dog. My wife and i love each other but she’s not so into making love in the bedroom as I am what’s the secret ? also how will our relationship be with our dog child parental wise ?

  81. 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?

  82. 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?

Since i read the your article says sheep not compatible with ox..what shall i do..? Should i continue…or stop before it going futher to worse or good? Please advice..thanks you so much

    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

  84. 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)

  85. 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

  86. 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

  87. 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

  88. 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

  89. 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

  90. 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

  91. 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

  92. 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

  93. Hi,

    My Secret friend is a Dragon, anyone knows where I can find dragon meat for breakfast.

  94. 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

  95. 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!

  96. Our secret friend is Boar, Please advise do we eat them for our daily meal. My meal always consist of pig meat.

    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

  97. 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!

    1. Sifu , need your advice, i am a wood tiger and my new boss is a metal monkey which is younger than me. I am worried we have conflict in work and office relationship, not romance. Please advice what should i do. Thank you in advance.

      1. Hi Celine,

        In the workplace the Monkey and Tiger both have many ideas and are both innovative but each of the animals will want to take the lead. The Tiger may be uncertain about the Monkeys approach and will have no faith in the Monkeys more crafty ideas. Without this trust and understanding, they do not make a compatible team; they will need to learn to work at the same pace and not try and jump ahead of each other.

        I hope this helps.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel
