The Best Homes for Each Sign in the Chinese Zodiac
The Chinese zodiac is a traditional classification scheme that ascribes an animal to each year in a cyclical dozen. It is popularly used to foresee and plan for the future, as the ancient Chinese believed that the animal ruling one’s birth year has a profound influence on that individual’s personality and destiny. As the saying goes, “this animal hides in your heart.”
Practitioners use the Chinese zodiac for offering putative life guidance, using its traditional details to analyze compatibility with regard to love, marriage, business, and living. While the effectiveness of Chinese astrology remains to be seen scientifically and even financially, it is always enjoyable to take a look at what ancient methods can offer you when it comes to decision-making, like in this case, selecting the best home for you according to your sign in the Chinese zodiac.
Rat (2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960)
Rats are said to have an active nature and enjoy a flexible social circle. A condominium unit is ideal for them, as condominiums house many other residents who can become friends. They are usually located close to city centers, places that offer many opportunities to attend social gatherings. Rats are advised to pay attention to preventing respiratory and skin problems and when you live in country like the Philippines, a country with a very warm climate, a unit in a high-rise condominium seems like a good idea, since being high up in an air-conditioned condominium makes keeping cool much easier.
Ox (2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961)
The Ox is the symbol of hard work, and people born under this sign tend to have a keen sense of commitment. The diligence and dependability displayed by Oxen make a home with land or a farm the most appropriate choice. In addition, those born under this sign are less communicative and often more introverted, preferring to spend time alone rather than in the company of others.
Tiger (2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962)
House or Townhouse
Tigers tend to express themselves loudly and proudly. They are known for working actively and doing things in a high-handed way. They are best suited to any career involving leadership and they are often the center of attention. Tigers can live in any kind of home, as long as it is centrally located. While a condominium might be best location-wise, Tigers are often less good at living in close proximity to others due to being so bold and independent. This means that a house or townhouse near a city center would be better for them.
Rabbit (2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963)
House and Lot
Quiet and elegant, Rabbits are also known to be quite responsible. Usually cautious and conservative, they do tend to miss some opportunities due to their lack of risk-taking. This makes long-term living ideal for Rabbits, as the combination of responsibility and little desire to go out and try new things allows them to stick with the long-term commitment associated with owning a house and lot.
Dragon (2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964)
Apartment or Condominium
As the only mythical creature in the Chinese zodiac, Dragons are confident and intelligent, with little regard for tradition and more for a smooth future. Their disregard for following the crowd makes Dragons the ideal residents for an apartment situated in one of the newer mixed-use developments, as the freshness of the property and location allows them so find the challenges they seek by way of looking for a new career, adjusting to the locale, and meeting new people.
Snake (2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965)
Apartment or Condominium for Rent
As the most enigmatic among the signs of the Chinese zodiac, Snakes are considered intelligent and wise, and while they are good communicators, they also have a reserved and more quiet side. Although hardworking, they tend to get bored quite quickly, leading them to hop from one job to another. This makes condominiums for rent their ideal home, as this provides them with the convenience of being able to move from place to place. With a love for having new and high quality things, renting also lets them try the best condominiums in the newest developments.
Horse (2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966)
Apartment or Condominium
Extremely animated, active, and energetic, Horses tend to be successful in any career that requires neither solitude nor mediation. Lots of responsibility may be too much for them and they may buckle under pressure, so careers involving lots of overtime and long hours must be avoided. With the love for being in a crowd and being active coupled with the need to be close to the workplace, a home situated in or near the business district is ideal, and so the best property would be either a condo or apartment.
Goat (or Sheep or Ram) (2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967)
Goats are generally believed to be gentle, mild-mannered, shy, stable, sympathetic, amicable, and with a strong sense of kindheartedness and justice. They are not too crazy about power or status, they are reserved and quiet, and often prefer to spend time with their own thoughts. The serenity of a beach side home is ideal for Goats, as this allows them to have the serenity they prefer, as well as being able to explore their creativity and satisfy their penchant for enjoying the finer things in life.
Monkey (2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968)
Apartment and Condominium for Rent
Witty and intelligent, Monkeys are not very quick at settling down in terms of relationships, as they tend to be promiscuous and get bored easily.

An apartment for rent is ideal for Monkeys, as it provides them the type of setup that allows them to explore their restless and inquisitive nature without keeping them tied down to a particular location.
Rooster (2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969)
House and Lot
Active, amusing, and popular with other people, Roosters are also quite loyal and true to their word. They do tend to be vain and boastful, often bragging about themselves and their accomplishments. A house and lot as a long-term investment is therefore a good choice for Roosters, as they can use their hardworking and multitalented characteristics to vastly improve their home, making it the center of attention and an achievement in itself.
Dog (2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970)
House and Lot
Exceptionally good-natured, most Dogs do not seek dishonest gain, and a quiet life and a close family are enough for them to forget the ugliness and evil that exist in the world. With a strong sense of loyalty and sincerity, dogs will do anything for those who are close to them. A house and lot with plenty of space is best for people born under the canine sign, particularly a home located in a quiet neighborhood, as family and simplicity are at the center of their way of living.
Pig (2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971)
House and Lot
Diligent, compassionate, and generous, Pigs are known to have great concentration. Once they set a goal, they devote all their energy to it. They rarely seek help from others, yet ironically, they readily offer help to others in need. With a tendency to build interpersonal networks for success, coupled with their great concentration, a house and lot is also the ideal home for Pigs, as this is the type of property that deserves their all-in mentality.
