Sunday, January 22 begins the 4721st year according to the Chinese calendar, defined as the year of the water rabbit, an animal that symbolizes caution, intelligence and quick thinking.

For those who believe that the stars influence our luck, you will be interested to know what are the lucky numbers that await you this year. The first thing you should know is that the number par excellence of the Chinese year of the rabbit will be 14, since it is the result of the sum of all its numbers (4-7-2-1). So don't forget to include this number in your bets.

But, in addition, there are a series of lucky numbers for each sign or animal in the Chinese horoscope. Unlike the Western horoscope, which classifies people according to their day and month of birth, the Chinese horoscope is divided into animals according to the year of birth of the people. Therefore, each person has an animal of the Chinese culture associated with him or her, as well as one of the 5 elements (metal, wood, water, fire or earth).

The Chinese calendar is based on the lunar calendar, not the solar calendar, so it is composed of 28 constellations and takes 60 years to complete a cycle. The Chinese New Year begins with the rising of the second new moon after the winter solstice, and therefore this year coincides with January 22 of the Western calendar.

So, if you want to know your lucky numbers for this year, let's get started!

Number 6: horse, monkey and dog

  • Horse: 2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966
  • Monkey: 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968
  • Dog: 2018, 2006, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970

For those born in all these years, their lucky number is 6, which symbolizes nothing more or less than good luck, as its name in Chinese resembles the words "smoothly" or "fluently," so the number 6 is associated with good omens.

Number 8: goat, rooster and pig

  • Goat: 2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967
  • Rooster: 2017, 2005, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969
  • Pig: 2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971

Those born in these years can consider themselves especially lucky: the number 8 is the lucky number par excellence in Chinese culture, as it resembles the words "prosperous" and "fortune".

Number 2: tiger, rat and dragon

  • Tiger: 2022, 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1974, 1962
  • Rat: 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960, 1960
  • Dragon: 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964

Those born in these years have the number 2, which is very appreciated in Chinese culture because it is associated with the word "happiness", as well as with intuition, sensitivity and spirituality.

Number 5: snake, rabbit and ox

  • Snake: 2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965
  • Rabbit: 2023, 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963
  • Ox: 2021, 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, 1961

Those born in these years, should be a little more cautious with their lucky number, as 5 in Chinese culture is an ambivalent number, which can be associated with both good and bad luck. However, good luck usually prevails, as it is associated with the five elements, something highly valued in Chinese culture.

Special numbers of the rabbit for 2023

As we commented above, 2023 will be the year of the rabbit according to Chinese culture, so we could not finish without making a special mention to the luck of those born in the years of the rabbit.

The rabbit will be the protagonist of this year, and on them will depend the future of those around them according to Chinese culture. Especially, the year 2023 will affect those born in 1963, for having completed a full cycle of 60 years. For the rest of the rabbits, this year will help them to learn and become examples to follow.

This year, the lucky numbers for rabbits will also be 3, 4 and 8, including also the rest of the numbers containing them (for example, 34 or 24). Their lucky days will be the 26th, 27th and 29th of each lunar month, and their lucky months will be the 1st, 4th, 8th and 11th. So keep an eye out for the lucky draws that fall on these dates!
