The Chinese zodiac is based on a twelve-year cycle, with each year in the cycle relating to an animal sign. Each year has its own animal sign according to the year of your birth (calculated according to the Chinese lunar calendar).

According to Insider, here are your 2019 predictions based on your Zodiac Animal:
🐷 Pig – Contrary to what you might expect, the Chinese astrological system actually holds that those born under the zodiac sign that is being celebrated don’t receive much luck. Instead, they receive lessons, restriction, and difficulties. “This isn’t a year for Pigs to take risks or initiate any major changes. Instead, focus on the practical and hardworking aspects of your zodiac sign. Look for ways to improve the mundane, routine aspects of life; small, consistent, and practical actions lead to long term health, wealth, and success,”
Though it’s not the ideal time for Pigs to launch any new endeavours or make major career shifts, this is a good year for Pigs to try and improve their health and skip the fad diets.
🐭 Rat – In 2019, Rat signs will have the opportunity to experience some serious career advancement and make new beneficial work connections. “Career will be the biggest win for Rats during the Year of the Pig. Success will come from the Rats’ talents, skills, and ability to network as well as from their connections. Rats are social people and generally well-liked, that likeability factor will pay off in the form of referrals and recommendations,”.
However, Rats should focus on building momentum where there are rather than looking for a new job. This is the year to focus on using skills that have already been honed. “This year, stay with what you know and you can climb to a higher position, expand your territory and or transfer within your organization,”.
🐮 Ox – People born in the Year of the Ox can look forward to a great run of luck with money and finances in 2019. Those who were born in the Year of the Ox may expect career changes, promotions, and salary upgrades. The only caveat here that there is such thing as too much of a good thing. Ox signs should be prepared to deal with success when it comes and they should have a plan for turning a sudden windfall into a long-lasting fortune.
“Ox people should make sure they are saving, budgeting, investing and making good financial decisions when their payload comes in. If not, thoughtless overspreading could wipe away earnings,”. With all this good energy flowing, it’ll also be extra important for Ox signs to speak up and make themselves heard at work. “When you ask for what you want this year you’ll hear ‘yes’ more often. You can ask for a raise at work or find a better paying position out in the world. Friendships and business connections will be pivotal,”.
🐯 Tiger –Tigers probably shouldn’t expect any dramatic positive changes in 2019. Although there’s always the potential for growth, Tigers should focus on maintaining their success rather than look for huge new successes.
“This will be an OK year for those born in the year of the Tiger. There are likely to be ups and downs but few huge wins. The blessings that come to Tiger during The Year of the Pig will be somewhat helpful at best,”.
However, this year is actually a good time for Tigers to expand their social circles. Meeting new people and sharing ideas will lead to wins in career and friendship, though love connections won’t necessarily lead to lasting love.
🐰 Rabbit – In Chinese astrology, the Pig is very supportive of the Rabbit. This means that Rabbits can expect pretty much every aspect of their lives to receive a boost in 2019. “Career growth is very likely and includes switching jobs, starting a business, and getting promotions all of which leads to more income. This will be a pretty stellar year for the Rabbit,”.
Rabbits can also expect their fair share of romantic and interpersonal success in 2019. “Relationships of all kinds will grow and strengthen this year. Singles will find love while those already coupled will spend more quality time with each other,”.
This is also a good year for Rabbits to go back to school or travel. “If you plan to travel this year, you’ll receive much help and support. And in your travels, you can meet people who can become important parts of your life,”.
🐲 Dragon – Dragon signs can expect good things in 2019. It’ll be a year of opportunities on all sides and Dragons may also find that they have the financial resources to take advantage of them.
“During the Year of the Pig, Dragon people will see a steady flow of abundant energy. Opportunities in either career or a side-hustle will present themselves to increase the flow of income. Single Dragons will find someone special this year, while those already paired will level up,”.
🐍 Snake – People born under this sign can expect challenges in almost every area of life. Snakes will find it especially important to make sure their decisions are aligned with their goals.
“Frustration, disagreements, and opportunities that bring little reward are all likely for Snakes this year. Some Snakes could experience job loss while others see opportunities. In the case of opportunities, it may not be fulfilling or require lots of work but little financial gain. It is best to review all aspects of new opportunities and don’t be afraid to turn things down if they don’t align with your goals,”
Snakes might also have to contend with fluctuations in income, lack of work opportunities, and unexpected expenses. Because of this, it’s a good idea for Snakes to start saving for a rainy day as soon as possible.
🐴 Horse –The Year of the Pig brings blessings to the Horse in career, finance, and relationships. This year will be a time of expansion, growth, and forward momentum, especially in work and business. “Opportunities that present themselves will be rewarding financially as well as boosting reputation. This will naturally lead to more business and financial opportunities as well as opportunities to network,”.
However, the adage “it takes money to make money” will definitely apply for Horses this year. They will find themselves expending financial resources to support career expansion.
Horses should also take advantage of 2019 to look after their health. “This can be a good health year for Horses as they change up some of their negative habits for better routines.
🐐 Goat – This year is shaping up to be a great one for Goat. They will experience good fortune in all areas of life including relationships, career, money, and health.
“You have more luck this year and you can take calculated risks both in love and in business. There is creative and fertility energy around you. Putting out creative work will bring back praise and accolades,”.
Goats will also find 2019 brings more opportunities for love and relationships.
🐵 Monkey – Monkey signs may run into trouble in 2019 if they don’t keep their energetic natures in check. This year has the potential to send Monkeys plenty of drama and even legal problems.
“Monkey people should lay low and try not to push too hard this year otherwise, the universe may swiftly whip them into shape. This is because antics and bad behavior will be harmful to others and the hand of justice will have to swoop in. This could include arguments and disagreements at the low end of the spectrum up to crime and lawsuits at the high end,”.
This energy will flow into both career and relationships. In career, there could be clashes that make it hard for Monkeys to make any major moves or power plays.
Monkeys will have to put in an effort to maintain or grow relationships as well as attract new ones. “Arrogance and tactless behaviour will work to Monkeys’ determent this year. Try to be more thoughtful, straight-laced and accommodating,”.
🐔 Rooster – It is said that health is wealth, and this year Rooster people should focus on both of these areas. If Roosters aren’t careful, their finances and wellness could take a real hit in 2019. “Health issues could arise from illness, accidents, or stress. It’s likely to cause a domino effect. In order to be effective in other areas, Rooster people should practice self-care as well as practicing good health habits,”.
Income flow might also be an issue for Roosters this year. Keeping business ventures on track may prove problematic and finances could suffer as a result. “Although career will range from consistent to strong, Rooster may suffer a loss of income. This could be from bad investments, paying down debts, lawsuits, and unexpected money drainers,”.
But it’s not all bad news – 2019 will also bring opportunities for Roosters. “All the new things you’ve been doing for the last year or two are starting to pay off. An important contract or business agreement may be possible. You can negotiate a win-win,”.
🐶 Dog – Hard work and effort will pay off for Dogs this year. People with this sign may have faced a difficult 2018, but those tough experiences will help Dogs succeed in 2019. “Last year definitely had challenges for those born in the Year of the Dog. Those challenges helped Dogs to mature and become more practical. These traits will help Dogs make the best of opportunities in the Year of the Pig,”.
There will be opportunities for Dogs in all areas, including career, finances, and relationships. However, these opportunities don’t automatically ensure success. Dogs will have to put in work and effort to experience gains. “Discard what isn’t working, including excess stuff in the house. This will make way for the thing you want to grow,”.
