Ox 

(1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021)


The second animal of the zodiac! Hardworking boss babes like yourself prefer to shine in the background, supporting others to keep them standing. You're naturally intelligent, honest and reliable, but never demand praise. This year, try not to be a doormat! Think about yourself and make your hard work shine through. When it comes to decision making, you rarely lose your temper and prefer to think logically, hence your well earned 'Boss Babe' title. Women born in the oxen year are also calm and gentle, but never surrender to the uphills and downhills of your journey. You choose your path; thus, you have a very distinct style! 

Luckily, a better year is on the horizon this 2020. Your compatibility with the Rat will fill your year with blessings and advances in your career, education and health. LUCKY!! Relationships may need some extra TLC, but nothing like excellent communication skills can't fix! Keep your social media channels open and reach out to besties!

Tiger

(1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022)

Meow!! Babe, the Roaring ' the 2020s predicts a fabulous year for you! Little Miss Benevolent and kind, you tend to let your imagination run wild, leading to a vibrant personality and a killer sense of style! Also, babe- how do you have so much energy? Are you naturally an extrovert? We do see some downhills. Your brash decisions and strong emotions will prevent you from reasoning at times.

Nevertheless, you'll be able to pick yourself up with ease. You're not one to back down from a challenge. You're lively and friendly but always keep your claws sharp... just like a cat!! 

Reap the benefits of 2020; career and education in particular. Be confident with your talents; using them for good and loyalty will get you far! Watch out for turbulent health and relationships. Remain a positive outlook and be sensitive to others if you want to have a great year.

-----

Rabbit

(1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023)


Your kindness and gentle-hearted nature may land you as the doormat of the friendship group, but in truth, you can hold your own. Your quiet personality hides confidence and strength, which peaks through in your day to day fashion.

No matter what negativity you encounter, you steadily move towards your goal. Your best traits are your attention to detail and communication skills, making you the attractive socialite of the group. A dull routine makes you want to cry with boredom. So you're always finding ways to spice up your life through your bold and eccentric looks. Whirlwind trips to exotic places are the norm for you! 

In terms of 2020, you can look forward to good blessings from the previous year. Romance may even be around the corner. Let your best female friends guide you through any struggles in your career and new love life. Don't go diving into unknown territory!! However, be on guard with your mental health issues.

Dragon

1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024


You have luck on your side, so it should be smooth sailing for you, honey! You are strong and independent, yet you welcome the support of your friends. When it comes to protecting your loved ones, you're not afraid to take bullies down a peg or three! You're proud and have high self-esteem, and your style reflects this. You don't ask much from others except respect. You live by female equality and empowerment movement, choosing to forgo marriage and focusing on bettering yourself (as you should!) ALL THE SINGLE LADIES PUT YOUR HANDS UP!! 

Dragons do well in the year of the Rat. Your focus should be getting that well-earned promotion you've been dying for. Play to your talents, and you should succeed. Nevertheless, don't let work consume. Spending time with friends and some proper old downtime will be great for your personal growth - prioritise yourself, girl!

Snake

(1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025)

You are Little Miss Sophisticated and can't stand small talk. In a chaotic environment, you are the eye of the storm and the one who brings laughter and much-needed joy in the room. Snakes have the knack for thinking calmly and holding their own. Don't judge a book by its cover as a snake's slow-paced attitude hides a quick wit and fast-paced thinking! You're always alert and on the lookout for new things. Your jealousy can get in the way of forming long-term, meaningful friendships. They cannot stand seeing others who are more successful, yet this becomes a motivation to work harder and better yourself. 

Unfortunately, this 2020 predicts some hurdles and bumps, although not as unlucky as the Horse. You'll need to be on guard of suspicious behaviour. Nevertheless, you'll find a silver lining in the form of a new friend or business partner. Luck will come to you, don't actively seek it out- be a patient babe.

-----

Horse

(1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026)

The Horse is the whimsical free spirit who allows her feet and her individuality guide her thoughts and decisions. However, she needs the space to do so. You are a burst of energy and a strong believer of chasing your dreams. Happiness is what motivates you rather than fortunate and fame, although you have a substantial nest egg being successful in the finance department. Your refreshing aura is ever-changing like your style. Sometimes you're a gentle pony, other times, you're a wild and untameable stallion. You're very much the jovial chatterbox of the group and aren't afraid of stating your likes and dislikes. This however, can lead to indecisiveness. You leave things to fate rather than have a clear plan outlined. 

Unfortunately, the Year of the Rat will be a troublesome one. Your year of fortune has passed. As the horse and rat aren't compatible, problems will appear every corner. All is not lost, babe! Random acts of charity and a positive state of mind will undoubtedly lead to success!!

Lucky Things - 

Colours - Green, red & purple

Numbers - 3, 4 & 9

Unlucky Things - The colours gold, brown & black &  Numbers 6, 7 8

Style -

Don't let your misfortune cloud your inner Feng Shui! Counteract the bad luck by hauling out the unlucky browns and blacks in your wardrobe. Instead, revamp your look with lush and airy shades of royal purples, vibrant reds and greens. Don't skimp out on the saturation and the ethereal details. Find breezy unique silhouettes that exude calm and tranquillity. A luxe mini with fluid-looking draped ruffle details, a reflective metallic gown or a sleek and soothing satin maxi are bound to promote some seriously good vibes.

Goat

(1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027)

This little babe constantly wears their hearts on their sleeve. You are loving, selfless, reliable and always thinking of others even if it works against your own happiness and interests. You can persevere through any hardship, making you a strong and resilient It-Girl. You always think before you make a decision, making you the most rational and patient of your girl group. Despite your high tolerance and keen observation skills, your mild personality and empathetic nature will often lead others taking advantage of you. You're also hard on yourself and never feel as if you've done enough for friends. Your kindness is admirable babe, but self-care is just as important. Don't light yourself on fire to keep others warm! 

The Year of the Pig offered prosperity. This 2020, the Year of the Rat brings shortcomings. Be prepared for difficulties to come, but your perseverance and willingness to help others will allow you to succeed. Treasure enjoyable moments to the fullest and look forward to a possible promotion or a healthy career switch!

Monkey

(1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028)


You are the lighthearted babe who can achieve all her dreams into unforgettable realities!! A social butterfly, your besties love you for your warm, down-to-earth personality. When it comes to bettering yourself, you have high standards and want nothing but the best. Who can blame you? You're full of ideas, and you'll stop at nothing to achieve your goals, even when facing the most difficult of obstacles. Although you actively give your assistance and friendship to others, you don't expect it in return. Because of your confidence, you can be a little too optimistic but your responsible and flexible in the social, financial and fashion department. 

The Year of the Rat brings both good and bad luck. You'll see improvement in your relationships and health, although your career is something to be desired...
