Chinese Zodiacs Animal Sign Luck 2022 Year of the Yang Water Tiger

Year of the Yang Water Tiger - 2022 Chinese Animal Signs

Welcome to the 2022 Chinese Animal Signs Predictions for the Year of the Yang Water Tiger.

In this annual tradition, I analyze each individual Chinese zodiac sign and compare how it will interact with the yearly sign - this year the Yang Water Tiger.

Below you will find each of the 12 animal signs to reference for yourself and your loved ones. Remember these predictions are only general in nature. For a highly personalized and bespoke reading, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via my enquires page for a consultation.

But before we dive into each individual sign, for those just learning about the Chinese Zodiac signs let's take a step back to truly understand the how and why we perform this annual tradition.

About the 12 Chinese Zodiac Animals

There are 12 animal signs or 12 Chinese zodiac signs in Chinese Astrology. Every one of us are born with an animal sign according to the year of birth. As matter of the fact, every Bazi Chart has 4 animal signs, the YY, MM, DD, HH are all represented by an animal.

The yearly animal sign repeats itself every 12 years. For example, 2022 is the year of the Tiger, twelve years earlier in 2010 was also the year of Tiger. And in 12 years time, in 2034 it will be the year of the Tiger again. 

Before going into the animal signs luck 2022 prediction, a very important Chinese Astrology concept needs to be remembered.

  1. An animal sign of a person is calculated by the year of birth. However, the animal sign does not calculate starting from the first day of the Chinese New Year.
  1. The correct animal sign calculation method is that the animal sign of each year starts at the time of Lichun (立春) – the “Start of Spring”. It normally falls on the western calendar or solar calendar on the 4th February plus or minus one day each year.

In 2022, the Chinese New Year day is on the 1st February 2022. It is 3 days before Lichun. (start-of-spring) If a baby was born in between the 1st February to the 3rd February 2022, even though those days are after Chinese New Year, the correct animal sign of this baby is still an Ox sign. 

In short, After Lichuen, generally on the 4th February each year, the animal sign of the year starts. 

A FULL Chinese Astrology reading examines the whole chart, NOT only the year of birth (the Animal Sign) but also the birth month, the birth day and the birth hour together. By incorporating the Luck pillars and yearly pillar together, a Chinese Astrologer can see a picture of your destiny from your birth data and can tell where you are at.

Using the animal signs or Chinese zodiac signs of the birth year, it is difficult to fully predict on how each year will affect each individual at a very details level. It is because such animal sign astrology predictions is only examined 25% (the stem and branch of the birth year) and in some cases with the months too. So it can increase to 37.5% of the four pillars’ natal chart. 

For reliable assessment in all aspects of your life in year of the Yang Water Tiger 2022, I suggest that you have your Bazi or Four-Pillar chart read by a reputable and experienced Chinese Astrologer.

2022 is Yang Water Tiger Year

Based on the Heavenly Stem (HS): Yang Water REN (壬) and Earthly Branch (EB) Yang Wood Yin (寅), the animal sign of Yin is Tiger with Yang Fire and Yang Earth as hidden elements inside the Tiger.
