The Rat has a lot to look forward to in 2024, the Year of the Dragon. The Rat is the first of the 12 Chinese zodiac signs and represents wisdom, creativity, and resourcefulness.
You are a Rat if you were born in one of these years: 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008 or 2020. However, if your birthday falls in January or February, you need to double-check the exact date of Chinese New Year to confirm your sign.
As a Chinese astrology expert, I can tell you that 2024 is a very favorable year for Rats. The Dragon is a compatible and supportive sign for you. The Dragon is a symbol of strength, fortune and prosperity and will help you achieve your goals and dreams in all aspects of life.
The Year of the 2024 offers you many chances to increase your wealth and advance your career. Lucky stars such as Jin Kui, Lu Xun, Jiang Xing, and San He will shine on you and bring you good luck in business, investment, promotion, and social relations throughout 2024. The horoscope advises you to seize them and don’t let any opportunity to improve your financial situation and reputation slip by.
Let me guide you through the main influences of the Year of the Dragon on the Rat’s 2024 horoscope and how it will help you navigate the year more smoothly.
Money and Career
The horoscope indicates that during 2024, those born in the Year of the Rat will be strongly positively influenced by the star Jin Kui 金匮 (Golden Lock) , thus Rats will have enormous chances to earn more, to be rewarded or to receive gifts.
The Rats will enjoy a good earning season especially in February and March. People born in this sign will receive more money, especially if they get promoted in January to the job they were aiming for.
In July and September, they need to be careful with the money they manage to collect. They will be tempted to buy things they don’t necessarily need, just to be trendy. But the losses they suffer then will be hard to recover. All year long, Rats should avoid spending that is not fully justified by the family’s needs!
Rat 2024 Feng Shui Forecast
As a feng shui master, I can tell you that the year 2024 will be very auspicious for the Rat natives. The 8th Star, which brings abundance and money, prosperity and wealth, will be located in the North sector, which corresponds to the Rat sign.
To enhance this positive energy, you should use remedies for prosperity and wealth, such as the Citrine Money Tree. This will help you attract more opportunities and wealth into your life.
However, you also need to balance the lack of the water element in the Year of the Wood Dragon, which can affect your health and emotions. To balance water, you can:
- Add water features, water images or mirrors in the north, east or southeast.
- Use blue, black or metal colors and items in your decor.
- Choose curved or wavy shapes for your furniture and accessories.
- Avoid too much fire or earth colors and shapes.
Another way to boost your luck in 2024 is to use a Qi Lin remedy, which will bring you helpful people and mentors in your career and education. This will help you achieve success and learn new skills.
Of course, you should not neglect your health and well-being. The main health remedies in 2024 for Rats are Wu Lou Amulets, which can protect you from disease and illness.
Finally, if you want to improve your love life or strengthen your relationship with your partner, you can wear a rose quartz bracelet. This will enhance your romance and happiness, as well as heal any emotional wounds.
Things that Will Bring Rat Luck
- Lucky numbers: 1, 4, as well as numbers that include 1 and 4 (such as 14 and 41).
- Lucky days: The 13th and 27th of each Chinese lunar month are considered auspicious.
- Lucky colors: White, yellow, and green are believed to bring good luck.
- Lucky flowers: Tulips, morning glories, and peach blossoms are associated with good fortune.
- Lucky directions: Favorable directions are north and south.
- Lucky months: The 7th and 9th months of the Chinese lunar calendar are believed to be lucky for those born in the Year of the Rat.
According to the Rat horoscope, complex emotional issues of the past few months will need to be resolved quickly in early 2024 with the help of the lucky star San He 三合.
Some Rats, especially those born in 1972, may also experience a series of unexpected proposals, ultimatums or discussions before the end of February. In this case, expect the main concerns to involve loss of business ambition, career choices, strained relationships with authority figures and/or family security.
Before March, Rats will be highly motivated to redefine relationships, address yesterday’s outdated promises and negotiate new commitments in long-term relationships. Single Rat natives can expect to meet rare and exotic romantic guests or, in some cases, rekindle a relationship from the past. In this case, expect new love affairs to be short-lived and, after April, to be replaced by a more lasting or serious relationship.
After mid-April, family members and longtime friends may also want to redefine living arrangements or established property expectations. Take time to listen and observe: loved ones may be privately preparing to make complicated lifestyle changes between late September and mid-November.
For many Rats a powerful era of active participation, group involvement and lasting emotional progress in romantic relationships will begin shortly after early September. Dramatic changes in long-term relationships are likely to occur in the coming months: watch for marriage decisions, serious romantic proposals and/or a reaffirmation of joint ownership arrangements.
The year Dragon 2024 will be a significant and dynamic year for the Rat: stay focused on long-term goals and expect loved ones to be nostalgic, dramatic and emotionally expressive.3 Zodiac Signs Rats Will Get Along Well in 2024:
