As we usher in the Year of the Dragon in 2024, there’s no better time than now to align our fortunes and aspirations with the ancient wisdom of the Chinese zodiac. After all, by now, you’ve probably seen your personal zodiac predictions at shopping malls across the island – but did you know that that’s not where your Chinese horoscope ends?
The Chinese zodiac isn’t just about your individual fortune but about your relationships with others too. That’s where the San He (三合, “Triple Union”) and Liu He (六合, “Six Harmonies”) come into the picture! By learning about which signs you’re connected to via the stars, you can maximise your good fortune, harness your collective prosperity, and strengthen your relationships with those around you.
To take your zodiac harmony one step further, the team at SK Jewellery has created classic gold collectibles that celebrate your San He and Liu He – allowing you to share the auspiciousness with loved ones this lunar new year! Read on to find out your San He and Liu He and see how you can select the perfect zodiac-themed jewellery to complement your destiny in 2024.
What is San He (三合) or Triple Union in Chinese Zodiac Astrology?
San He, also known as the Triple Union, is one of the fundamental concepts in Chinese zodiac astrology and fortune-telling. It is based on the four Trines of traditional Chinese elemental theory, with each trine containing three animal signs that naturally complement each other. When together, these signs bring balance and positive energy to each other, which can be a great boon in your interpersonal relationships. The four trines are:
- Water Trine: Rat, Dragon, and Monkey
- Metal Trine: Ox, Snake, and Rooster
- Fire Trine: Tiger, Horse, and Dog
- Wood Trine: Rabbit, Sheep, Pig
Understanding your San He group can help you choose jewellery that enhances these synergistic relationships. To make harmonising with your San He compatriots easier, SK Jewellery has specially designed two types of Triple Union Bracelets featuring yellow gold charms of the corresponding signs.
For example, the Blessed Zodiac Dragon 999 Pure Gold Charm Bracelet Triple Union (三合) Bundle contains charms for the rat and monkey, a complimentary black charm bracelet, and a promotional free 0.1G gold coin ang pow. Each charm shows the animal hugging a mini 福 (Fu, ‘Fortune’) logo, symbolising good fortune and prosperity for the wearer.
There’s also the Dragon Zodiac 999 Pure Gold Charm Bracelet Triple Union (三合) Bundle series, which features the rat and monkey charms (or the right San He partners for each zodiac sign!) hugging a gold ingot instead.

What is Liu He (六合) or Six Harmonies in Chinese Zodiac Astrology?
Liu He, or the Six Harmonies, is another crucial aspect of Chinese zodiac astrology. It is a concept that pairs the two zodiac signs directly opposite each other on the zodiac wheel, achieving perfect balance and harmony. Each pair is thought to support and bring out the best in the other, symbolising a union of yin and yang. The six harmonies are:
- Rat and Ox
- Tiger and Pig
- Rabbit and Dog
- Dragon and Rooster
- Snake and Monkey
- Horse and Goat
Wearing these harmonious symbols is thought to attract good fortune, enhance relationships, and promote overall well-being in the upcoming year. Best of all, compared to your individual zodiac predictions that change from year to year, your Liu He and San He relationships are fixed! So you can always honour them and how they make your life that much better.
