Pig, Horse, and Dog

Each works well with the Tiger to achieve happiness and success in love & business. Horse overcomes people’s struggles but incurs spending. Dog should maintain good health and avoid confrontation. Pig will also experience happy romantic events such as dating, engagement, marriage or having a baby.


Monkey and Tiger are rivals. Monkey constantly runs into conflict with the Tiger and cannot tolerate Tiger’s behavior. For mature monkeys, they should maintain good health and avoid sudden accidents. For younger monkeys, this is the year of making changes in all aspects. Wear a necklace of featuring a dragon or rat to smooth the transition of those rapid changes.


Tiger competes with Tiger on all fronts with animosity as the mountain just can’t accommodate two tigers. Tiger people should maintain good health and avoid confrontation. Wear a necklace featuring a pig, horse, or dog to divert the ill attention of the tiger.


Rat, who entertains a moderate relationship with tiger, can expect changes, travel, and hard work in the year of the tiger in order to improve its career and status, but will incur spending.


Ox will make good progress on career matters and have a romantic event in the year of tiger. Ox needs to maintain good health. Wear a Rooster necklace to avoid the evil of sickness.


Rabbit should avoid a bad romance in the year of the tiger. Even though Rabbit expands its skills and raises its social status, it’s often disturbed about strong competition. Look for help from people who are Pigs and Goats.


The Tiger disturbs the Dragon’s focus on making changes, travel and study with worries about an elder’s health issue. Senior Dragons must focus on staying healthy.


Even though Snake and Tiger often spar with sharp tongues and struggle with each other, Snake’s wisdom and charm helps them gain support to win battles.


Goat focuses on job achievements and enjoys happiness at heart but will incur spending, or may take a loss in a partnership or investment.


Rooster is energetic, creative, competitive, and productive, hence it overcomes obstacles to achieve its goals and becomes successful in love and their career.
