What determines good and bad years in the Chinese zodiac? (3 Replies ) Asked by A***t

Hiya Your Chinese Astrology Years, Last time I was here, I was asking about compatible and incompatible years. For example, I am a Goat, and supposedly, my best years would be the Rabbit and Pig years. My Chinese animal is somewhat compatible with the Rooster, but I noticed the element of this year (Fire) is incompatible with mine (Water). It continues with the Earth element after that until the Metal Rat year in 2020, and continues with my opposition animal, the Ox in 2021. Is basing good luck in years that are compatible with your animal is too generalized? Does it depend more on the animal or the element? Or does either have an stronger influence on how the year works out?
