The Chinese Zodiac in 2023 - Year of the Yin Water Rabbit

Every year the annual Chi affects our personal Chinese astrology charts. In this video we will look at the effects of 2023's annual energy on our “Year Branch” - the Animal Sign of the year we were born. All the Zodiac signs are here in order - Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep/Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.

A snapshot for each Animal sign in 2023 -

  1. The Rat in 2023: Connect with people both older and younger than you. Your own generation may want to compete and put you down.
  2. The Ox in 2023: Stay close to family and old friends in 2023, focussing more on your career will bring positive growth.
  3. The Tiger in 2023: Use your intelligence and logic not your emotions and charm this year, you’ll get far better results.
  4. The Rabbit in 2023: Speak your mind without fear this year, but make sure your words build people up rather than tear them down.
  5. The Dragon in 2023: Open your heart to your lover and yourself, too much work can bring health issues.
  6. The Snake in 2023: Avoiding ‘fair weather friends’ will allow you grow in more ways than you’d imagine. Expect a much smoother time than last year.
  7. The Horse in 2023: Boost your Karma by doing ‘good deeds’ for your family and friends, as well as correcting any mistakes you’ve made over the past couple of years.
  8. The Sheep/Goat in 2023: Love, romance and career are all looking great for you as long as you take the time to think about the repercussions of your actions.
  9. The Monkey in 2023: Seek some mental health support this year, especially if 2022 was difficult for you. Talking about your problems can help them disappear.
  10. The Rooster in 2023: Control your spending habits this year since it will be easy to overextend yourself. Setting boundaries will annoy some people but will help you in the long run.
  11. The Dog in 2023: Create your own luck by trusting your intuition and creativity. Putting extra effort into your appearance will make you feel like a million dollars and boost your confidence.
  12. The Pig in 2023: Continue to build and grow, but beware of who you place your trust in.

2023 Yin Water Rabbit Predictions Almanac Article

Each year the annual Chi affects our personal “BaZi” or “Four Pillars” Chinese astrology charts. This article looks at the effects of the annual energy on our “Year Pillar” – the year we were born. There are three other Pillars – the time, day and month of birth, as well as sub-cycles (including annual Chi) that affect our daily lives. Examining the Year Pillar can tell us how we will interact with the world outside ourselves, but there is much more to be learned from an internal perspective through the other three Pillars. Check your own BaZi Four Pillars chart here.

The Rat in 2023

Rabbits aren’t entirely civil to Rats, and vice-versa. In 2023 the Rat will find themselves at times spoken to and treated poorly, most surprisingly by people that you love the most. It will be more a case of who has the upper hand in your relationships, but you can decide to not engage in the behaviour. Rats that choose the higher ground during a Rabbit year can expect to ‘win’ in the long run, but you will be on the losing side if you try playing people at their own game.

Love and Personal Life
Moving away from the Water frame years (2019-2021) has weakened Rat’s romantic outlook, even though the Rabbit brings a longing for connection. People will find you fascinating and want to be around you, but that open-hearted link will remain elusive. The most supportive relationships for Rats in 2023 come from children and younger people, and can include your siblings if you disengage from any rivalry.


Career and Money
Last year I urged Rat’s to connect with people to improve your career chances. In 2023, you will see those connections bring rewards, and it’s never too late to build more relationships with mentors and juniors alike. If you ask for assistance you will receive it, but remember to show your gratitude even if it’s not quite the help you were looking for.

The Ox in 2023

The unfairness Oxen folk have felt over the past 2-3 years is lifting and you will begin to see your karma improve. That is, when you do a good deed, you’ll see a positive response, unlike the past where you mostly felt taken advantage of. This is great, but there are also aspects of the Rabbit that may see you over extend yourself trying to help others. Oxen need to remember that sometimes people need to help themselves first.

Love and Personal Life
Oxen will be drawn to spending more time with children and younger generations in all relationship aspects. It may for the best, as more worldly and sophisticated people will have an impulse to take advantage of your sense of justice. The Rabbit brings unfavourable energy for leaping into relationships, but you will know if you are in the wrong place, because your health will begin to suffer. As soon as you move out of the negative space, your energy will come rushing back.

Career and Money
Your career luck is stable, and cash flow will keep improving in 2023, so this is a very good time to create a savings and investment plan. The only impediment to wealth growth for Oxen will be controlling your own spending habits.

The Tiger in 2023

Tigers were pushed to study themselves and their internal motivations in 2022, the most infamous being Amber Heard’s treatment of Johnny Depp coming to light. Approach 2023 armed with the lessons you’ve learned about yourself, some of your shine has faded and it is best if you rely on your intellect than your charisma to get what you want. When you find yourself on unstable ground, step back from the situation and see if there’s anything familiar, have you been here before? Do you already have the answers from your experiences in 2022?

Love and Personal Life
Your romantic connections improve and it is more than just physical attraction that gets you going. Depending on your age, you may find yourself working with your siblings to help your parents. Try to find common ground, even when you know you are right. Tiger’s have an up and down 2023 for health matters. You will feel strong enough to take on the world, but can be sideswiped by unexpected illness.

Career and Money
With a much clearer vision of who you are and what you want, many Tigers will find their instincts sharpened towards income and investments, gaining a return on the effort you’ve already put in. Treat this separately to your career path, which is stagnant during the Rabbit year. At work, continue to put in your best effort but don’t expect too many income gains through promotions.

The Rabbit in 2023

You’ll be a very busy bunny in 2023 – lots to do, see and learn. Clever Rabbits that have been working on improving themselves will have some big opportunities arriving this year but may still be surprised that you have more layers to discover. Yin Wood Rabbits are the oratory darlings of 2023 and those with an entrepreneurial spirit will find themselves setting a wonderful foundation for their future.

Love and Personal Life
You will see improvements on the romance front, especially if you’re single, but the true peak of Rabbit love energy is still a couple of years away. The main relationship to focus on in your own year is the one you have with yourself. Make an effort to spend time with your parents, they’ll appreciate the attention.

Career and Money
Property and income are still looking good for the Rabbit, great in fact. Like the Tiger though, you can expect difficulties progressing at work so you will need to analyse your options. Since it is your own year, it is time to find out what can make you happy while paying the bills. Act early if you are very unhappy at your workplace, there’s always a place that will appreciate you.

The Dragon in 2023

Remember all the hard you’ve done in the past few years? Well dear Dragon, it’s about to pay off! Take this time to step back a little and appreciate how far you’ve come in such a short period. Some Dragons may find themselves trapped in a certain way of being. This Rabbit year is an opportunity for you break the chains of conditioning and eliminate the things that are really holding you back.

Love and Personal Life
For many Dragons, physical connection plays an important role in their romantic life but 2023 will bring focus on the heart and mind, with sex being a minor consideration. If you can bring yourself to share your deepest feelings with the one you love, you’ll find new ways of living and loving.

Career and Money
Money, career, property – all of these things are are moving up for Dragons. You’ll find that you will need to follow a routine and keep as closely as possible to your plans, no more flying by the seat of your pants. Keep your travel plans to the minimum necessary, as there will be delays and problems during the year for you.

The Snake in 2023

Whew, what a relief 2023 is after the Tiger created all those problems for you. The Rabbit helps you re-balance with some good lessons on who you can rely on, and in fact will bring you some overdue justice. Listen out for news about people from your past who will get their comeuppance.

Love and Personal Life
Your romantic outlook is much better this year, but you will need to hold some of your opinions to yourself to save arguments. Your parents will require more attention, but this can come at a cost to your own health. It’s OK to ask for help when you need it because you’ve helped so many others.

Career and Money
There is less interference in your business and work life in 2023, gains will be easier with less effort and running around. Your property stars are starting to decline though, so any investments you make in the near future should be safe harbours.

The Horse in 2023

You may find that your usual energetic self is not well received in 2023, you just seem to rub people the wrong without even trying. This is OK because it doesn’t affect your partner or spouse, who will be there to support you. The Rabbit is a Karmic year for the Horse – if you’ve been wronged, then expect justice. However the reverse also applies, try to see the mistakes you’ve made, and set out to correct them.

Love and Personal Life
Despite the general challenges mentioned above; romance, love and sex are all well-aspected in 2023. If you truly cherish what you have, then you will be treasured in return. Horses will find themselves arguing with or over children, but when you back off and allow them some space, you’ll witness a return to balance.

Career and Money
The Water Rabbit brings a dichotomy in work and career for Horses. Mentors and helpers appear, but you will feel that your wheels are spinning. This is because your wealth and property stars are beginning to wane even though your career stars are increasing in strength. You are stuck between wanting to create your own path and needing to keep a stable income. Older mentors can help see the to best way forward.

The Sheep/Goat in 2023

It’s time for the Sheep to get moving, especially if you’ve been feeling stuck. Last year’s Tiger gave you clarity, and now 2023’s combination with the Rabbit will give you the ability to take real action based on understanding the pro’s and con’s of each situation.

Love and Personal Life
Love is really at it’s peak for the romantic Sheep, you may find yourself swept away at just a glance. While this is wonderful news for single Sheep, it can be a danger if you have a spouse and family, because you know that your heart sometimes rules your head. Redeveloping a passion will be more fulfilling than finding greener pastures.

Career and Money
Whilst you do have good energy for taking action, it is in career and money that you should think first. There are some aspects in 2023 that can can lead to betrayal for the Sheep. Everything will turn out OK for you, but the stress can lead to health issues. If something seems too good to be true, then you know there are hidden motives involved.

The Monkey in 2023

After a difficult 2022, Monkey’s will find that the pressure eases off in most areas of life apart from family responsibilities, especially when it comes to parents and elders. This additional responsibility will create an increase in outgoings but nothing that you can’t handle.

Love and Personal Life
The Water Rabbit year is complex for Monkeys, and what happens will depending on your current situation. Many Monkeys will be making a break from where they are living, simply to find somewhere they can feel more at peace. The truth is that you can create peace where you are by letting go of the fear and anxiety with meditation and other self-awareness techniques.

Career and Money
With additional responsibilities, you may feel that you need to increase your workload just to keep some sort of balance. The stars are there ready to comply, but it will be to the detriment of your health. Seek mentors that have been in your situation before, and most importantly, listen to what they have to tell you.

The Rooster in 2023

The Wood vs Metal clash in 2023 affects Roosters in ways both positive and negative. You’ll have many temptations to spend above your means for things that seem important at the time. Invest your money into your own health and wellbeing instead of following the consumer treadmill.

Love and Personal Life
Relationships with your siblings will most strained in this clashing year, but you will become closer to your children and younger people. With both your sign and the Rabbit being 2 of the 4 “Peach Blossom” romance signs, you can expect admirers but these will be fleeting and short-lived. Your relationship with yourself is what counts in 2023.

Career and Money
Income is fairly stable for Roosters in the Rabbit, but you will feel financial stress if you aren’t disciplined with yourself. At work, you’ll have to handle greater responsibilities, most likely because you worked hard last year. Feeling that you have to say yes to more work can lead to mistakes, so ask for help if you need it.

The Dog in 2023

Forms a lucky Six-Harmony Fire combination with the Rabbit, but you’ll find that you can’t rely on good luck alone due to the Yin Water annual Stem. Dog’s can create their own luck in 2023 – sometimes through perseverance, sometimes by how you treat others, and sometimes just by showing up and being yourself. Your intuition is strong, you’ll know when to act and when to take it easy.

Love and Personal Life
You will find that platonic friendships are becoming stronger and meeting new people is easier, but you’ll feel a gap when it comes to true love. If you put extra effort into yourself and your significant other last year, the bond between you will deepen but will still require attention and nurturing.


Career and Money
The sheer volume of work Dogs have had to put in during the last 2-3 years is incredible, and even though you’ve become more efficient, the workload will only drop a little. Sadly, your income won’t truly reflect this but you will finally be heading on the right path for you. Getting out and meeting people is the key to building on what you have created.

The Pig in 2023

The Rabbit year brings another Wood combination for the Pig, increasing your creativity and intuition. This is good news, because there will be some jealous people who wish you harm or to take what you have built. If you focus on driving forward and creating your own luck, you’ll leave them in the dust.

Love and Personal Life
Your children and social connections are the relationships to focus on in 2023. Your romantic life will be steady and comfortable, good for the Pig’s heart and soul. While there is a warning to watch out for backstabbers, most people you meet will instantly warm to your happy personality. It is also wise for Pigs to really get moving with their health and well-being, some effort now will be bring amazing results over the next couple of years.

Career and Money
For most Pigs, the latter half of 2022 brought good returns on their prior hard work. This continues throughout 2023 with your luckiest month being July. Even with the combinations and support, you will need to think long and hard before you take action, and about who you trust when it comes to your finances. Assets are better aspected than cash flow, so spend your money wisely.
