In Focus: What Luck Does The Year Of The Rooster Have In Store For You?

One of, if not the, most important holidays for the Chinese is Chinese New Year.

Similar to its universally celebrated counterpart, the start of a new year can bring new opportunities for every zodiac sign. We sat down with Feng Shui master Aldric Dalimpines at Shopee’s one-year anniversary to tell us what we can all expect between now until the end of the Chinese calendar year. The leading mobile-first marketplace in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, Shopee makes online shopping safe and easy for buyers and sellers alike.

From what Master Aldric shared, there’s plenty to know and look forward to!

Rat. Things are looking up for the rat. This goes for career, romance, finance, and especially love. The last one may not apply to LGBTs, though. They might attract people of the opposite sex instead of the same sex.


Ox. Overall outlook for oxen should be good, as they are friends with roosters. Rooster energy will support oxen in all fronts. This may also be the year when you get back together with an ex.


Tiger. It is a rebound or breakeven year for tigers. Whatever was lost in the past year and half, you will gain back—financially or otherwise.


Rabbit. Take advantage of traveling this year. It’ll help shrug off whatever misfortune comes your way.

Dragon. Those born in the year of the Dragon have been blessed with The Midas Touch. Anything you get your hands on will be profitable.


Snake. The time has come for snakes to demonstrate leadership, whether in school or at work. Beware, though, of people who envy your rise to the top. A rooster figurine can help ward off bad luck.


Horse. Like rabbits, now is a good time to travel. Every trip you take will be full of opportunity and gain.


Goat. Chances are that you may experience disappointment when it comes to love. But other than that, goats everywhere are in for a great year.


Monkey. Anything goes for monkeys this year! You can get away with several things. Perhaps the real question is just what #monkeybusiness will you choose to get involved with?


Rooster. To better increase the chances of experiencing luck, have a rooster figurine with you. Doing so will create a trinity of luck—that is, the element of the year, the person, and the figurine. Think of three roosters as a poker trio—Cards of the same number (or in this case, representations of the same sign) create a powerful hand.


Dogs. All dogs need to be careful of in the coming months is health, specifically oral diseases.


Pig. The year will be one of comeback. Pigs can expect to enjoy climbing back to power and uncanny influence on others.
