Chinese New Year 2022

2022 according to the Chinese horoscope

The year 2022 will be the year of the Tiger of Water. Its energy will begin on February 1, 2022 and end on January 21, 2023. 

The tiger is the third animal in the Chinese horoscope and is considered a symbol of strength and courage. 

Like a big cat, he lurks watching, and the murmur of his silent footsteps ever closer heralds the coming change. This year may bring movement, adventure, challenges, unforeseen changes, and surprising developments. Therefore, it will be key to be careful and serious in making important decisions and dealing with unforeseen events. 

Being aware of yourself, of your present, and of the place where you are will be of great importance to be able to react with serenity, strength and courage in the face of challenges. 

The Tiger of Water also has an innate ability to learn new things so, if you had in mind to start learning something new, this is the year!


How does the Chinese horoscope work?

In Chinese Astrology there are 12 zodiac signs and instead of being represented by constellations, the zodiac signs are represented by 12 animals. The animals in their corresponding order are as follows: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. These 12 animals mark periods of 12 years, so depending on the year you were born you will be characterized by one animal or another.

At the same time, according to Chinese astrology, the 12 signs are ruled by the five elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood.  These elements are said to be the essence that makes up the universe.  Each Chinese zodiac sign combined with the five elements produce a 60-year cycle: for example, a Wood Goat repeats itself once every 60 years.

Once you have the animal that represents your birth year, it is time to know which element governs it. Each person has one according to their year of birth, which marks their personality.


Metal – Born in years ending in 0 or 1

Water – Born in years ending in 2 o 3

Wood – Born in years ending in 4 o 5

Fire – Born in years ending in 6 o 7

Earth – Born in years ending in 8 o 9

S – Metal

The I Ching is an ancient oracle based on Taoism. It is performed with coins or sticks, to form a hexagram that has a meaning. The Hexagram is composed of two elements (fire, air, water… etc.) and its interpretation depends on the combination. Sometimes (not always) if it is mobile, you get a second hexagram that speaks of the future. The perfect service to do in times of change as during the Chinese New Year.
