Excited that this is your year? Not so fast. According to Chinese astrology, your Zodiac year is considered to be unlucky. People in their zodiac year are believed to offend Tai Sui, the God of Age, and incur his curse. It is believed to bring nothing but bad luck.

How can you fend off the bad luck? Try wearing red or donning jade accessories.
