Astrological Animal Signs

Chinese Astrology, like Western Astrology, uses animals for their Zodiac signs.  There are 12 animals in Chinese Astrology, one animal character per year.  Months also are associated with the different animals and based on the moon cycle, starting the 4th to the 8th day of the month. The Lunar Year is based on the cycles of the moon. The Chinese Lunar New Year begins on a new moon and it is used for festivities.   The solar calendar, starts on February 3rd or 4th every year and it is used for Chinese Astrology calculations as well as Feng Shui and Date Selection because the start of it does not vary as widely as the Lunar cycle does

If you where born before the start of the solar year, February 3rd of 4th, Your animal sign belongs to the previous year
