People often think that they'll be truly blessed because it is their year. Unfortunately, the opposite is true. Tigers this year may face emotional and financial turmoil this year. Patience will be essential when it comes to matters of the heart. To maximise good fortune, find 5 coins and submerge them in saltwater, placing them in the sun for 24 hours. Then place them in a row at the entrance of your home. It can be taped under the doormat or carefully balanced on a ledge above the door. This will help fortunes roll in.

Rabbits are destined to have a favourable 2022, but that doesn't mean you should be careless. While there is luck to be had in love, business and new opportunities, be wary of new alliances that may lead to financial losses. To hoard good fortune, neutral-toned bedding can be an asset to stabilise wealth. Or, if your front door faces northeast, in position with the fortune star, a yellow doormat can also help money flow through your home.

People born under the year of the dragon should be particularly wary of their health this year, especially if they are older. It would be best to live life conservatively in 2022 whilst also paying attention to social relationships as to not alienate others. Southwest is in an unfavourable position regarding health in the Year of the Tiger. If the head of your bed is facing this direction, we recommend repositioning it to better protect yourself.

Similar to tigers this year, those born in the year of the snake should be wary of emotional and financial unrest. 2022 will be a year where you'll have to find much patience from within. To bring greater balance into your home, items like knives, forks and blenders shouldn't be kept in plain sight within your kitchen. They are best kept in drawers and in closed shelving units. Be wary of keeping your kitchen clean throughout the year and give away any unused items that are lingering.

Multiple auspicious stars are aligned with the horse zodiac this year, meaning you can look forward to greater opportunities at work, in education and in social encounters. Focus on your career this year, particularly if you own your own business. Implement feng shui elements in your home office by adding water decorations that face north; this can be a fish tank or small water features. Moving water elements like this will inspire money and popularity to flow.

The past 2 years have been hard on goats, but 2022 will be a pivotal year of change for the better! While big changes might create instability at first, friends will flock to provide support. It's a great year to start a family, move homes or start a new job, but avoid taking financial risks. To protect your wealth, hang a Chinese knot in your bedroom. For those who are impatient when waiting for good news, decorating your home with colours like red and purple will ensure good luck comes faster.

Those who fall under the year of the monkey best be cautious with their health this year. In affairs of the heart, you should also tread lightly as misunderstandings can stagnant and cause problems down the road. To instil growth and positivity in your home, be sure to add plants and flowers to every room. Keep your windows clean at all times to let light and energy flow without obstruction.

Roosters have two lucky stars signing down on them this year. They'll be blessed with abundance and should take advantage of any business opportunities that come their way before the Christmas season arrives. Focus on communications with loved ones to get the most out of 2022. In your home, prioritise decluttering to then allow your focus to lie on your goals. Decorative items that take on a free-flowing shape, mimicking water, will also help to bolster your career aspirations.

Pigs will fall on hard times this year, with quarrels likely coming their way and affects to their physical health. Pay particular attention to your stomach and gut health. However, it's not all bad as there may be business opportunities on the horizon! To create more stability and strength in your home, incorporate more earth elements to ground you.

1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020
This year will be one of average luck for rats, they will gain the recognition they crave, but that may not come in monetary forms, so don't put your hopes there. Instead, place your hopes in romantic relationships, whether they be new or existing. Bring more yin energy into the home, particularly the bedroom, with dimmer lights and colours that help you relax. This will inspire more romance. Remove mirrors in the bedroom, which bring a third energy into the room, which should be avoided, particularly if the mirror faces the bed.
1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021
Those born in the year of the ox can look forward to a year with few obstacles. You will have luck in relationships, whether that be in business, family, friendships or in love. You may still encounter some challenges, but your perseverance will see you through quickly. In your home, bring more fire elements that represent leadership and boldness. This can be done through candles, lighting, warm hues or cheerful botanicals. The fire element will help over anything that comes your way.
