Chinese New Year Horoscope 2023

Everything you need to know for the Year of the Black Water Rabbit.

By Stephanie Dempsey

January 22, 2023 begins the Chinese Year of the Black Water Rabbit. According to Chinese astrology, black is the color that represents self-awareness, career mastery, and release. Whether this means taking time off work to travel, receiving a promotion, learning a new trade, or starting your own business is immaterial. 2023 is a wonderful year to find your purpose in life.

2023 is also ruled by the Water element. Water energy is contemplative, calm, and relaxing. Like 2022, this year presents a fabulous opportunity to slow down and reflect on what is truly important. Water years call us to practice surrender and radical acceptance.

In tremendous contrast to 2022, which was a year governed by the ferocious Tiger, the Year of the Rabbit promises to be peaceful. Hostility and competition give way to gentle harmony. Whether you’re dreaming about having a child, launching a business, manifesting a relationship, or beginning a creative project, thoughts can turn to things with a minimum of effort in the Year of the Black Water Rabbit.

Wondering what this year will bring for you? Use our Chinese Sign Calculator below to find out which Chinese Zodiac Sign rules the year of your birth. Remember, this zodiac follows the lunar calendar, and the Lunar New Year can fall anywhere between January 21st and February 20th. If you were born in January or February, you may have been born under the previous year’s sign.
