The beginnings of Chinese astrology dates back to 1,200 BC. This was when early Chinese astrologers assigned a different animal and its factors to a particular year. Which then repeated on a 12-year cycle.
This is known as the ‘Chinese zodiac because of how it is similar to the Western zodiac. The two biggest differences are that the Chinese zodiac references years and not months and that the Chinese zodiac is not drawn from star constellations.
The Chinese zodiac also attributes numbers to each sign, and these numbers are all considered lucky or not. Below we’ll look at how lucky each Chinese zodiac sign is, and if they say you'll win the lottery or not.
If you look at Chinese culture, certain numbers are considered luckier than some. Some of the luckier numbers according to the Chinese zodiac are 6, 8, 9. Because these numbers have the same phonetic sound as the Chinese words for ‘great’, ‘well-off’ and ‘money.’
When you play the lottery it's advised to use only one of these numbers, or maybe two. This is because if you use all three in the same number combination you will not be covering enough of the number pool of that particular lottery.
The number 2 is also considered very lucky in Chinese culture. Because the Chinese believe that ‘all good things come in pairs.’ This is prevalent in the theory of Feng Shui which holds that the two main features in the yin and yang are the complementary forces that fuel all things in the world.
There are certain number combinations that are considered luckier than others according to Chinese knowledge. See below for some of the luckiest number combos you can use when playing the lottery.
16 - 8: These numbers have a similar phonetic sound as the Mandarin for ‘making a fortune all the way.’ The numbers are considered a lucky number combination for many spheres of Chinese life, not just for playing the lottery.
5 - 20: These numbers sounds like the Chinese for "I love you", and has been used as lucky numbers for generations in Chinese culture.
13 - 14: This more or less translates to ‘throughout one’s life,’ and said on birthdays to wish one a happy and long life. It’s also played with the above number combination to use 5 - 20 - 13 -14 to say ‘I love you forever.’
6 - 60: These numbers are the reflection to the 'Red Envelopes' that are given out on Chinese New Year. These are given out to wish the recipient a prosperous and wealthy year ahead.
22 - 40: These numbers have the same phonetic sound as ‘big riches’ and are usually said to people celebrating their birthday or a promotion.
We recommend that you only use one or at most two of the above number combinations in a single line. This is to make sure you always make use of the entire number pool of that particular lottery game.
Just as there are lucky numbers on the Chinese Zodiac, there are also those that are considered more unlucky and should be avoided when picking lotto numbers.
The number 4 is known as an extremely unlucky number because in Chinese it is pronounced in an identical way to the ‘death.’ In fact, the number for is considered so unlucky that many Chinese people will leave it out of their phone number or license plates.
Many Chinese lottery players will avoid the number 4. but if they do play it they will use it alongside other numbers. For example, they will use numbers like 14, 24, 34, 40, 41, 42, but not simply play the number 4 alone.
Along with assigning certain numbers and particular attributes to the Chinese zodiac signs based on your year of birth, the Chinese also assigns these factors to each new year.
Each year also has has an animal assigned, and there are also number sequences or single numbers that are considered more lucky than others.
