Curious about the state of your love life in 2020? You might be wondering if your boyfriend will finally pop the big question or if you will finally ditch your single status and attract Mr Right. We consulted founder of the Mastery Academy of Chinese Metaphysics and international best-selling author Dato Joey Yap to share with us his predictions on each Chinese zodiac’s luck in love this year.

It will be relatively uneventful in the love department, though committed Rats should still keep the fires of their romance ablaze by whisking their partner on a relaxing getaway this year. This will keep your relationship away from the threat of complacency and utter boredom. Single Rats should instead prioritise the expansion of their social circle as this will increase their chances of finding someone that catches their eye. There’s no rush, however—whirlwind romances aren’t in the cards for you this 2020, so take it slow!

The single Ox is ready to mingle and potential partners are definitely within your social orbit. Don’t play coy. Be earnest and sincere about your feelings without being overbearing and your long search for love may well come to an end.

Maintaining a positive mind and an upbeat personality will allow the Tiger to resist the side effects of their weak Peach Blossom luck in 2020. Potential partners will be charmed by the energy you inject into the atmosphere, so stay cheery and your love life could well be merry!

Single Rabbits will be jumping for joy this 2020 thanks to positive Peach Blossom luck, though you’re advised to be proactive in the game of love instead of waiting for someone to sweep you off your feet. Meanwhile, committed Rabbits may want to consider tying the knot thanks to the presence of auspicious stars.

Romantically-entangled Dragons are in the clear for a progressive love life this year; there’s even the probability of resounding wedding bells should either party express their desire to tie the knot! Single Dragons aren’t quite as fortunate in the love department, though mustering the courage to convey their affections towards the one their love may lead to surprising, but favourable, outcomes.
For those born in 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001
Give yourself room to breathe and collect your thoughts before you let your emotions escalate an argument. This goes for both single and committed Snakes. You may be more easily angered this year, but a heart of appreciation will go a long way towards keeping the peace between your loved one or potential partner.
For those born in 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002
If you’re already in a committed relationship, remember that the trials you two will undergo this year only serve to make your romance stronger. Let every argument or setback teach you how to handle your relationship with greater appreciation and maturity. The single Horse, on the other hand, should explore new social circle to make up for the lack of interesting people in their current ones.
For those born in 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003
It’s time for confessions and courtships for all love-struck Goats! Acts of love will be even more impactful, so focus on planning that sweet date or vacation—as well as any other romantic gestures—that you might have been wanting to do for your loved one or romantic interest!
For those born in 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004
It’s crucial to deepen your bond with your partner or potential romantic interest this year. Your partner should also be your best friend, so make the effort to improve your relationship on that level as opposed to simply making romantic or sexual gestures.
For those born in 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005
If you’ve been reluctant to embrace the idea of online dating sites and casual dating, now is the time to reconsider. The single Rooster sees positive love luck in the year of the Metal Rat, though Mr Right won’t simply arrive through a fortuitous encounter. Show that you’re interested in losing your single status and you’ll massively up the chances of reciprocation.
For those born in 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006
Love-struck couples and wedded pairs may be more likely to fall sick, which is why it’s a good time for them to show more affection, care and consideration towards each other. The Dog may also easily misunderstand their partner’s words and intentions this time around, so it may be wise for them to eye their loved one’s body language instead of just what they say.

Great news for the single Pig: you won’t be alone much longer if you’ve been soulmate searching. That said, it’s best if you didn’t act on impulse; take your time to get to know your love interest on a deeper level before committing yourself. Time is on your side!
