Dragon

If you are born in the year of 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, or 2012 in the lunar calendar, your zodiac sign is dragon.

As 2024 is the year of dragon which is also your sign, you are in conflict with Tai Sui (值太岁). You may experience uncertainties in your career, health, and life.

In 2024, while there may not be much good luck in your life, the good news is that there may not be much bad luck either. Try to adopt a balanced lifestyle and keep a lower profile at work.

Dog is directly opposite dragon in the Chinese Zodiac Wheel. As 2024 is the year of the dragon, people born in the year of the dog will also be in conflict in Tai Sui (冲太岁). You may have below-average luck with turbulences in your career and wealth. The chances of conflicts between you and your colleagues may also increase.  

In 2024, be more risk-averse when it comes to decision-making. When in doubt, always seek opinions from your family or friends. Be more tolerant of others and treat every interaction with an open heart and an open mind.

As long as you practise mindful speech, be calm and avoid getting into any quarrels with others, 2024 may turn out to be a blessed year for you.

How and when to return Tai Sui in Singapore 2023 (还太岁)?

To return Tai Sui, simply go to the same temple where you did your Tai Sui worshipping.

The procedure is the same as when you settled your Tai Sui. You will need to prepare your Chinese name, date and time of birth, buy a set of joss papers and joss sticks and pray to the Tai Sui God.

Each temple will have different dates for returning of Tai Sui. The typical dates to return Tai Sui are usually about 1 week to 1 month before the Winter Solstice festival or Dongzhi festival (冬至).

As Dongzhi falls on 22 December 2023 (Friday) in 2023, the return Tai Sui period for 2023 has ended for all temples. 

What should you do if you miss the period? Calm down and do not worry! You can go back to the same temple, buy a set of joss sticks, pray and express your gratitude to the Tai Sui God for the protection over the year.
