What Does Your Chinese Astrology Sign Say About You?

Do you know what your Chinese astrology sign says about you?

We’ve talked about zodiac signs many times on this website, but this time we’ll take it up a notch and discover what the Chinese astrology says about you. Whether you believe in the stars or not, knowing how they can affect your life, relationships, and career is still nice.

So, before we talk about what your Chinese astrology sign says about you, we need to understand what this special zodiac is in the first place. Known as Shengxiao (“born resembling”), the Chinese zodiac is a repeating cycle of 12 years, each one being represented by a different animal: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

In contrast to Western astrology, which is decided by the ever-changing movements of the planets, Chinese astrology is based on birth year; an Ox is always an Ox, even though the characteristics of a Water Ox, a Fire Ox, and a Water Dragon, respectively, will be somewhat different from one another. What does your animal sign reveal about you? Let’s find out together!
