Title: The Chinese Zodiac

The Chinese Zodiac
  • A Twelve-year Cycle

The Chinese astrology is based on a twelve-year
  • The legend says that Buddha called together all
    the animals in creation, but only twelve of them
    turned up, and those that did were each given a
    year, in the order of their arrival.
  • The Chinese believe that your character is
    influenced by the animal sign governing the year
    in which you were born.

Which animal are you?
More animals to choose from
The Rat
  • People born in the year of the rat are often
    energetic and tenacious. They are capable of
    being generous and lovable and are good
    listeners. However, they can be manipulative and
    power hungry, so one must be wary of these

The Buffalo
  • People born under the sign of the buffalo, also
    known as the ox, are usually hardworking and
    patient. They are usually good leaders, and
    sometimes may be loners. They can also be
    considered stubborn to the point of rigid, and
    also have a tendency to be jealous or vindictive

The Tiger
  • The tiger is considered to be a very noble and
    courageous people. They are also protective and
    passionate. Tigers can be hotheaded at times,
    even to the extent of starting a fight. They can
    sometimes be vain and unable to compromise.

The Cat
  • Those born in the year of the cat (which is
    sometimes known as the rabbit) are often refined
    and socially adept, which makes them all the
    better to have as friends. They are clever and
    sometimes a bit old-fashioned. At there worst
    they are thin-skinned and devious.

The Dragon
  • To be born in the year of the Dragon is to be
    spirited and scrupulous individual. Others lend
    to admire the enthusiasm and the vital, generous
    nature of the dragon. However, like the
    fire-breathing creature, a dragon can be
    overbearing and loud-mouthed. They can also be
    independent, and irritable.

The Snake
  • Those born in the year of the Snake can be wise
    and understated, and are often soft-spoken. They
    have an air of intelligence and relate to others
    well. When you anger a Snake, though, beware
    they can be vengeful, fickle and possessive, and
    often sore losers.

The Horse
  • People born in the year of the Horse are often
    athletic, independent and skillful. These
    powerful, hard-working people are not only quick
    on their feet but also with their tongues. They
    make good friends because of their wittiness and
    upbeat moods. They can be tactless and ruthless
    when they lose their tempers.

The Goat
  • The year of the Goat gives rise to peaceful,
    sweet-natured people who tend to be well-mannered
    and artistic. These intelligent people can be
    kind-hearted and persevering when a cause
    motivates them. However, a goat can be
    intrusive, irresponsible and inclined towards

The Monkey
  • Those born in the year of the Monkey are often
    known for their intelligence and problem-solving
    abilities, which could explain why they make such
    good business people. They are witty and
    captivating, at worst they can be vain,
    untrustworthy, and immature.

The Rooster
  • The year of the Rooster brings forth
    enthusiastic, self-assured people. Roosters are
    quite industrious, and have a conservative streak
    that clashes with the more adventurous side of
    their nature. They are very resourceful, but
    difficult to work with because of their
    tendencies to nit-pick and brag.

The Dog
  • The Dog is loyal, discreet, and dutiful. They
    are excellent prospects for friends. They are
    intelligent and selfless, but can also be
    introverted, critical and defensive. At their
    worst, dogs are cynical and grim.

The Pig
  • People born in the year of the Pig are often
    peace-loving, accommodating and sociable. They
    have a sensual side and a love of indulgence.
    They can be intelligent, but some are naïve,
    which allows less scrupulous individuals to take
    advantage of them. Gullibility and insecurity
    can be a dangerous combination for Pigs at times.
