Some Chinese readers are already waiting for the fortunes of their Chinese Zodiac 2022 to be in the future. The Chinese New Year 2022 will fall on Tuesday, February 1, 2022; which is marked with the change of year of the Metal Ox to the year of the Water Tiger.
In 2022, there will be a change of element from Metal to Water (liquid), where the change of element occurs every 2 years. The year 2022 is also known as the year of the Water Tiger, or Black Water Tiger, because in Fengshui, water is considered a symbol of the north direction (black color, or a symbol with a turtle).
The change of the year itself will start from February 1, 2022, and will last until January 21, 2023.
In general, 2022 is still considered a “transitional year”, after 2020 to 2021 the world is still facing the dangers of Covid-19, whose total cases reached hundreds of million people more, and caused millions of deaths.
The transition period is a change for the better. After the mass vaccination, the world began to recover, the wheels of the economy turned, schools opened, and tourism was back on its way. People are also more aware of health. They are grateful, because they have survived through the years of death!
Chinese people believe that, over the years, one’s luck will also change. Either change is for the better, or it could just be worse.
The kind of luck is U FUK (五福), or “Five Fortune”, namely Fu (福, Luck), Lu (禄, reputation), Shou (寿, age), Cai (财, wealth), and Ting (厅, descendant).
For some readers who have become impatient, or who have given up on their unfavorable fate this year, of course, you will begin to ask questions, how will my luck be in 2022? Can it be better?

Birth year, or Ben Ming Nian 本命 年 is a symbol of the zodiac year, which is determined by the birth year of a person. Since the Chinese prophetic counting system is represented by 12 animals, then every 12 years, a person’s birthmark (sign) will come once (12 year cycle).
A chinese zodiac year will start over since the first day in the current Chinese New Year, and ends on the last day of the current year. For example, the year 2022 is the year of the Tiger, which starts on February 1, 2022, and ends on January 21, 2023.
There is a belief by some Feng Shui experts, that people who are born until H + 15 Chinese New Year, will still inherit some of the previous zodiac traits.
For example, someone who is born on the 3rd day of the Dragon year, will still inherit minor traits from the Rabbit zodiac. Or a person born on the 10th day of the Tiger year, will also inherit the minor traits of the Ox.
