By Joel Teh

Intrigued by abstract sciences and the principles of the universe since childhood, Dato’ Joey Yap, the founder of the Mastery Academy of Chinese Metaphysics and Chief Consultant of the Joey Yap Consulting Group, has become the Top 300 Most Influential People in Malaysia and Prestige’s Top 40 Under 40 by The Malaysian Tatler in 2008.

Today, we’re beyond thrilled to work alongside Dato’ Joey Yap on the information of Animal Zodiacs’ fortune in 2021. Below are the details brought to all of us by this very influential speaker of the world. Enjoy reading and have fun exploring.

2020 has turned many lives upside down. Some have coped pretty well with the new normal, while others have struggled to keep things afloat.  

Each year has its own vibrational energy that affects a person’s luck in different ways. The key thing is to be aware of how it affects you and what you can do to ensure that 2021 is a good year. 

Here is a summary of what to expect for each of the 12 animal signs in the year of the Metal Ox.


(1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020)

2021 is the time for you to shine. You have the chance to become someone of prominence if you make the most of the opportunities available to you. Don’t be afraid of taking on new challenges and make an effort to increase your network. Your efforts will help you increase your wealth prospects in the long run.


(1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021)

The spotlight is on the Ox this year because of the Grand Duke. Everything that you say or do will be amplified, so pay close attention to what you say and do. Use this attention to your advantage by stepping up. This is the time to shine, so if you don’t like attention, the year will be an uncomfortable one for you.


(1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010)

Tiger individuals will find themselves being the guiding light for others. There are also opportunities to meet important mentors that will provide you with the help you need. This is also a great year to improve your relationship with others.


(1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011)

Use the new year to upgrade your skills and knowledge. Career progression will not be smooth, so remember to take a break now and then to improve your mental health. Avoid putting too much stress on yourself when you face difficulties and challenges in 2021. Self-improvement is the best solution you can invest in.


(1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012)

This year, you might have a desire to start your own business. Somehow, you are attracted to new business and money-making ideas and the thought of putting these plans into action excites you. The important thing is to be resourceful with what you need to get things going.


(1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013)

If you are born in the year of the Snake, you will finally be recognised for your efforts in 2021. Because of this newfound attention, there is a good chance that you might attract those who are jealous of your success. Refrain from focusing on these people and let your hard work and results do the talking.


(1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014)

2020 has been a rough ride for those born in the year of the Horse. The good news is, things will turn for the better in 2021. Although the opportunities available may cause you some grief in the beginning, it will turn into a memorable experience in the end. Your likeability and charisma will also be heightened this year, so make an effort to be seen.


(1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015)

2021 will be a year of big changes for those born in the year of the Goat. Things will work in your favour if you embrace the changes that come your way. If you are resistant to change, then 2021 will be very challenging for you.


(1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016)

Those born in the year of the Monkey will have the power to solve problems this year. You will have many opportunities to make full use of this power, so put it to good use in 2021. You also have superior networking skills this year, so find a way to use these 2 superpowers to your utmost advantage.


(1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017)

If you have worked hard and persevered through difficulties and challenges in the last year, your efforts will finally bear fruit in 2021. If you aspire to be an influencer or public speaker, this is the year to kickstart your plans and make an impact in your chosen industry or field.


(1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018)

2021 is filled with great adventures for those born in the year of the Dog. This is the time to create happy memories with loved ones, friends or a special someone. There will also be opportunities to expand your network, so make an effort to connect with others. Continuously nurture these new relationships to find potential people to collaborate with in the future.


(1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019)

Expect a very busy year ahead for those born in the year of the Boar. There is a good chance that you’ll be stretched very thin by trying to do everything. Prioritise what is important and focus on activities that will benefit your life instead.
