year and sign for themselves.

calendar which begins each year on January 1st and ends on December 31st.
The Chinese calendar based upon the (lunar)cycles of the moon and as a
result, starts on a different date each year, between January 21st and
February 19th. The lunar calendar repeats over twelve years.
Each of the twelve years on the lunar calendar is designated with an
animal. In good astrological fashion, the animal representing the year you
were born defines much about your personality and characteristics. This
Chinese Zodiac, like it's Western counterpart comprising the science of
astrology(zodiac signs) and horoscopes, it even goes so far as to tell you
best relate with or who you should marry.

More About Chinese Astrology
The foundation of Chinese Astrology is Yin/Yang, the 12 animals and the
Chinese Astrology is said by some scholars to be the oldest horoscope
system in the world. However if you trace Western Astrology back to its
Middle East roots, both types are likely to have been born in their
current recognisable form around 3000 years BC, however they stem from
entirely different beginnings as well as traditions and parts of the
There are similarities in that both recognise 12 types of character,
(12 animals in this case), are cyclical in nature and incorporate a
considerable degree of long observed wisdom. After those traits
Chinese0Astrology is rather different having its roots in classical
Chinese0philosophy and legend. Unlike Western Astrology, Chinese0Astrology
has nothing to do with Planets and their actions.
The 12 animals are further 'flavoured' by the pervading element of that
particular year (elements also revolve as a seperate cycle). It is said
that Bhudda is responsible for the 12 animals as they were the only ones
who came to bid him farewell into the next life.
Which sign and element you are or that relates to a place or event is
determined by the year that it came into being.
Chinese Astrology is concerned with nature and its traits, the signs
progress year by year whereas Western Astrology cycles monthly.
The consideration of Yin and Yang is a very great influence upon this
subject, Yin being passive, female and receptive while Yang is agressive,
male and exploratory.
The various permutations of these 2 essential forces in nature, places,
organisations, events and humanity and the quest to achieve balance so
that both operate together in harmony rather than opposing or canceling
each other out are an essentialy Oriental viewpoint and quest, they form
the basis of many Far Eastern traditions and other influences in Chinese
Society such as Feng Shui.
The 12 Animal Signs are : Rat, Ox, Tiger,Rabbit (or Cat), Dragon,
Snake, Horse, Goat (or Sheep), Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. The animal
ruling year in which you were born has a profound influence on your life.
As the Chinese say, "This is the animal that hides in your heart"!
There are 5 elements : Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water, each adding
a nuance of almost tactile character to the animal sign.
Chinese0Astrology is based on the Chinese0calendar year of your birth
or the year of an event. There are also many more nuances involving the
month and day.
