Lunar New Year Zodiac Sign for 2024
In 2024, we move into the Year of the Dragon. The dragon is the fifth animal in the Chinese zodiac, and the last time we had a Year of the Dragon was back in 2012. If you need a refresher, 2023’s Chinese zodiac sign was the Rabbit.
Year of the Dragon meaning: What does this zodiac represent?
Looking at ChineseNewYear.net, Dragons are known to be “strong and independent figures, but they yearn for support at love”. But what can we expect from the year ahead? Well, Reader’s Digest reports that a Dragon year is widely seen to be a particularly lucky year – one where actions may be bolder and things will happen fast.
Apparently, it will be a particularly fortunate year for people born in the Year of the Dragon, i.e. folks born in 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024 – so a very special Happy Lunar New Year to them.
