According to Chinese numerology, certain numbers are incredibly lucky and auspicious while others are considered inauspicious and should be avoided at all costs. Aside from these numbers, each Chinese zodiac sign has its own set of lucky numbers, too.

Interestingly, some of the numbers considered lucky for some of the Chinese zodiac signs are incredibly unlucky for a different set of zodiacs.
