Many people mix up the notions of the Zodiac constellations and the Zodiac signs. The Zodiac signs are the 12 parts of the ecliptic 30° each. The number of the Zodiac constellations is 13 (12 Zodiac signs plus Ophiuchus). The names of the Zodiac signs were given after the name of the nearest constellation.
Ancient people noticed that the Sun exerts different influence on people, passing through their Zodiac signs. The Zodiac signs show the role of the planets in a particular Zodiac sign. Thus, astrologers determined the dependence between a person’s life and his Zodiac sign. The position of the Sun at the moment a person was born can describe his inner and outer development and his future.

Let’s find out what your Chinese Animal Zodiac sign is. For this purpose you should know just the year you were born in. Let’s do it step by step.
You need a lunar calendar and the list of animals in the right sequence. It must be the following: the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig.
If you were born in the period from 01.21 to 02.20, you must show more caution because the beginning of Chinese New Year moves every year. So you must check whether your birth date is before or after its beginning.
Choose the reference point. It can be any year, but usually people start counting from the first sign of the Eastern horoscope – the Rat (2008 year).
Subtract or add 12-year cycles to come closer to your birth year.
Then count missing years according to the list of animals.
We remind you of Step 2. Being Capricorn or Aquarius, you must pay much attention to the beginning of Chinese New Year. This detail is very important because, one day, a joyful and confident Aquarius-Dog of 1994 birth year found out that, actually, she is an Aquarius-Rooster.
You can chose another method to define your Chinese Zodiac. It is much easier but it can not be precise enough.
Find your birth year in special tables. But if you are Capricorn or Aquarius, there are high chances to get the wrong result. Sometimes, such tables are formed by simple subtracting or adding 12-year cycles from a certain year.
