What's your Chinese zodiac sign? If you don't already know, it's time to figure it out. The Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 parts - just the same as the Western zodiac - but it covers a cycle of years, not months. The Chinese zodiac isn't a "traditional" zodiac per se, as the animals don't represent constellations the way the Western version does, but each specific sign does look to define a person's traits and personality and highlight strengths and weaknesses.
So, do you know what your Chinese zodiac sign says about you? And do you know what kind of year you're supposed to have? Knowing your sign according to the Chinese zodiac won't define your future, but it might give you a little insight as to the path you might follow based on your personality traits. Even if you don't believe in astrology, there's plenty of interesting observations and stories behind specific Chinese zodiac years and the animals that represent them.
